he said, after he had talked with Capt.
Mr. Fissoll told of n meeting with
Mr Nugent at the Blue Hlrd Inn. a
road house between Newark and Tcn
aflv, where he said tho latter spoke to
him of a $6,000,000 nitrate plant con
tract which he said he could dispose of
as he wished. Flssell was Interested,
ho testified, and told Nugent that, al
though he owed him nothing on the
Camp Merrltt agreement, he would
nevertheless give up half of his profits
on condition that Nugent got for him
the contract to erect the nitrate plant.
At the time Flssell first told Nugent
that he believed he had nothing to do
with the Camp Merrltt contract and
that he should pay nothing as a result
of It, the contractor said the politician
became so "abusive" that he turned and
left his office.
The next day. according to the testi
mony. Nugent sent Wright to ask Fls
sell to go to see him. Another inter- i
slew resulted nt which Nugent spoke. I

that ho would be asked to id In com

that, as they would be from Chicago
and San Francisco and other points re
mote from New Jersey, where the work
was to be done, Flssell would be "tho

going to give tne the next one, and it will
be right In your back yard." Mr. Braun's
testimony wns corroborated by that of
his son. Chester A. Braun, who was In

"Shi THue AMPICO Is Pflayiiriigr
That is what she said. Hut this is what she wa thinking:
"Very, very quietly please. RACIDIAXINOFF i piayinir.
You can't see him, but. he is. This is the CIIICKERIXG-AM-PICO.
for which that great Russinn composer-pianist played, and
which is now reproducing his playing EXACTLY, with not the ,
slightest change. The instrument is virtually the artist for the
lime being the artist at his best. So, please, come in very quietly,
just as you would at Carnegie Hall at a Rachimaninoff concert."
So Very Wonderful
Is the AMPICO
that it is now being featured by public entertainers. It is announced
to appear in the regular course of Concerts Diplomatiqucs, a brilliant
series of concerts given in Washington at the Belasco Theatre, on
Sunday afternoons. And, on Sunday evening, March 21st, you will
have an opportunity to hear it in the Hippodrome as part of the
regular Sunday evening musical programme.
Victor Herbert, De Koven, Geralldime Farrar, Gitz-Rice
these artists have played for the AMPICO, and for no other Reproduc
ing Piano. You will never hear De Koven play again except through
the AMPICO. llecords played by him will be ready in a few weeks.
MOISEIWITSCH, this season's phenomenal success; LEVITZK1,
the success of 1918-10; ORNSTEIN, the individual; and the Russian
master composer and pianist, RACHMANINOFF all these play
exclusively for the AMPICO. They have never played for any other
Reproducing Piano. And there are almost one hundred other great
pianists whose playing tlie AMPICO reproduces.
Cant you picture the happiness and
inspiration the CHICKERING
AMPICO could bring to all icho
arc in and who visit your home?
