A prominent American writer says:
"Thirty minutes' earnest, serious

In the latter part, of the nineties!
the paper -did not enjoy It1? former

retired from the paper and it was
sold to George B. Mann, who in turn j
leased it to Bart L." Kirklmm and K

located in the building now used by
Bach & Libershal as a store room.
In the year 1899 the plant was sold
to Harry B. Groves and William

Fourth and Main streets where the
present Donat building stands and

the building as well as the contents
to such an extent that a move was
necessary and the plant then owned
by Germanine Towle was located in
the building on Sixth street where
the pop factory now operates and it
was here that George B. Mann and
William Kelly Fox established their
offices in securing the papef in the
year 1901. Messrs. Mann and Fox
continued to operate the paper un

No other phonograph even dares the test
which the New Edison underwent on Tuesday,
October 25th, before a large audience at the
That fact' is something for you to think
The test of comparison with living artists
is the only phonograph test which means any
thing. It is the only way in which a phono
graph can irrefutably prove its realism. It is
the most drastic of all phonograph tests. To
sustain it, requires absolutely perfect realism-
On Tuesday, October 25th, the New Edi
son stood by Harvey Hindermyer's side at the
Parmele TJieatre. If you were there, you heard
the living voice and the Re-Created voice
brought into direct comparison. You know
there was no difference between the two voices.
A similar test was made by the Dann in
strumental trio with the same successful results.
By this wonderful performance, the New
Edison has placed itself apart from all other
phonographs and talking machines. It alone
has sustained this drastic test. It alone has
proved concretely and conclusively, that it gives
youtheiliving performances of great artists.
If NEW ED
TKe Phonograph with a Soul
Any Official Laboratory Model you buy in
our store will positively sustain the test made at
the Parmele Theatre. We will give you our
guarantee to that effect.
Come in and hear this instrument in some
further tests of realism. Learn that you can
have an Official Laboratory Model of your own,
on a very small cash outlay. We will make a
gentleman's agreement with any music lover.
