If you do (and the man who does not, according to Shakespeare,
is "fit for stratagems, treasons and spoils"), you will find no music
maker so easy to buy, so easy to play and so easy to listen to as
the Phonograph. The Phonograph plays everybody's music.

that your mother sang when you were a boy, and the latest pop
ular sketch from comic opera. They are all sung equally well and
are reproduced perfectly in your home by the Phonograph,

length aud declares a purpose not to

its enforcement, yet wo desire It to be
clearly understood that the editor of
tho American Fedoratlonlst does not
consider himself thereby violating any
