We want you to see it, listen to it,
test it for yourself. This marvelous
phoncyjraph can give the family more
pleasure than any other instrument
you can buy them for Christmas.
Here is why :

that it can match the performance of
the living artist, and match it so
perfectly that no one can tell its Rs

famed soprano. It did this on Sep

at Carnegie Hall, Eittsburgh with
Marie Rappold, prima donna of the
Metropolitan Opsra Company. It
did this on November 5th, 1919,
before 6500 teachers at the State
Armory, Albany with Mario Lau
renti of the Metropolitan Opera
Company. It did this over 40C0
other times, with more than fifty
great vocalists and instrumentalists.
Y ou can read the facts of these
amazing achievements in the leading
newspapers of the United States and
Canada. They are the talk of the
music and scientific world.
And the phonograph? It's the Official
Laboratory Model of the New
Edison, "the phonograph with a
soul." Every Official Laboratory
Model in our store is an exact dupli
cate of the famous original Official
Laboratory Model which cost Mr.
Edison three million dollars to per

test of direct comparison; we guar

TIES SCORE OF
PLATTS H. S.
VISITORS COME EIGHT BACK AF
TER LOCALS HAVE 7 TO 0 LEAD
AND TIES THE CONTEST
The football game yesterday be
tween Glenwood and Plattsmoutb. op
ened with what seemed certain vic
tory for the local aggregation but the
boys from Keg creek were able to
come right back and tie the score and
the final result was seven alike for
the two teams.
In the opening quarter the Platts
moutb team got busy and annexed
their touchdown in the first few min
uates and had the visitors played off
their feet. Joe McCarthy , begin the
offensive that brought the touchdown
when he pulled off a thirty yard. end
run that brought the ball far in the
territory of the visitors from Iowa
and Carl Schneider repeated with an
other good run that brought the ball
to within a. few feet of the Glenwood
goal and from where it was easy to
push over the ball for the needed
tally.' Dovey was successful in kick
ing goal and left the score seven
good ones for the home boys and
created unbounded enthusiasm
among the fans who had assembled
to cheer on the team.
On the kick off by- Plattsmoutb
Harry Hanks, full back of the .vis
itors proceeded to gain much ground
as thel locals seemed unable to hold
him and when finally downed he had
advanced to the center of the grid
iron. On downs the Glenwood team
lost the ball and then the tragedy
occurred as Hanks intercepted a pass
of the locals and tore down the field
to cross over the Plattsmouth goal for
a touchdown Hanks also kicked
the goal that tied up the game.
After the first two touchdowns
the game was much more hatly con
tested and both teams played a
clever defensive game. The visitors
relied largely on thsir. punting to se
cure their advances while the locals
were more successful in their end
runs. A number of passes by both
teams were incomplete and proved
fruitless in. gaining ground.
In the last quarter the ball was
brought into the Plattsmouth terri
tory and in attempting an end run,
Howard Bishop. playing one of the
half back positions for the visitors
attempted . an end -run and was ser
iously hurt as he was tackled by one
of the Plattsmouth team, being
kicked or striking the back of his
head so seriously that-he was taken
from the field in an unconscious con
dition and did not recover sufficiently
to resume the game and was removed
to the office of a physician for treatment.
