15e NEW EDISON
The Three Million
THOMAS A. EDISON invented the phon
ograph in 1877, Later he improved his
original phonograph to a point where his
business advisers said to him ; " You now have
the best phonograph in existence. Let's go
ahead and market it."
Mr. Edison shook his head and replied : " I
am not going to put out a new phonograph until
it is so perfect that its reproduction of music
cannot be detected from the original music."
Thomas A. Edison spent three million dol
lars in cold cash to develop an instrument which
matched the human voice and all kinds of musi
cal instruments so perfectly that the original
could not be told from the reproduction or RE
CREATION, as it is now called.
Wc arc prepared to sell
you today, for $288, an
exact duplicate of Edison's
three million dollar phono
graph. You may even have
extended terms of payment,
if you desire that accom
modation. First of all, how
ever, wc want you fo hear
this woudcrful new instru
ment. '" W1 J
May wc have the pleas
ure of demonstrating to you
that Music's RE-CREA-TION
is a reality and not
merely a fanciful phrase ?

Married at Smith Center
Four young people, representing as
many of our county's best families,
journeyed to Smith Center, Kansas,
on yesterday and returned "as but
two" or to bo more explicit, were
united by Rev. J. B. Simms, a Bap
tist minister at that place, in the holy
bonds of matrimony.
The contracting parties were Harry
Barker, of Inavale, tho foii of Mrs.
Jano Barker, who besides being a suc
cessful young farmer, lias many
months overseas service to his credit
and Miss Clara Jones, the charming
' and attractive daughter of Mr. nr.d
Mrs. C. S. Jones, and for the past few
years tho faithful and efficient Inter
typo operator at tho Argus office, and
Andy Watson, son of Mr. and Mrs. F.
C. Watson of Inavale, likewise a pros-
. porous and industrious younp farmer,
whp also faithfully served during tho
late war and Miss Beatrice McAllis

Allister, an equally as charming and
attractive Miss as was her companion,
who, since graduating from tho Red
Cloud High School last year, has sue?

Killed Tuesday Morning
Barney Moore, for years a familiar
figure, in the local C. B. & Q. yards,
met death in a pathetic manner, on
luesuay morning near tho crossing
over which he had, since meeting
witb an accident on the road somo
thirty-one years ago, iwhich cost him
practically the use of both hands,
faithfully guarded and piloted tho
traffic over in safety. Due, no doubt,
to the infirmities of old age and while
apparently toying with an old paint
brush, on the side of a box car, ho
failed to note that the day hostler
with the engine taken off No. 16, and
pushing a string of cars, wa3 ap
proaching the string against which
he stood, and was knocked down,
dragged a considerable distance and
so badly mutilated that before med
ical attention, which was promptly
summoned to his rescue, could arrive
on tho scene, life was pronounced ex
A quaint old character was Barney
Moore, a trifle optimistic, but filling
his sphere in life in a manner that
not only displayed real character, but
that oft times, big men, through mis
fortune and other causes, are found
in menial pursuits.
His wife passed away in Caspor,
Wyoming, at the home of their dnugh
