Even John Philip Sousa, the great bandmaster, who has no use for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an

a Phonograph has a concert in his own house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.
