IT is impossible for Mr. Bryan o address all of
the voters of the country between now and
Election Day, but by means of an Edison
Phonograph and the new Bryan Records a great
many more people can hear him s;eak than
would be possible under any other circumstances.
The Edison Bryan Records
are remarkably faithful reproductions of Bryan's
speaking, and give extracts from his speeches
which are characteristic of his policies.
Informal gatherings can be ai ranged at Demr
ocratic clubs by means of an Edison Phonograph
. and these Records. It will be a novelty ia itself
to have a campaign speech delivered by a Pho
no -raph, but when it is also considered that the
speech is Bryan's and that the rec-rdswere made
by him, this becomes-doubly interesting.
Phonographs and Bryan Records! can be had
of any Edison dealer in your town.
