:patent bears the dite of July, 1-71,
linid the..patentecs are Cineiunattian,
-Mssra. Aikons aud 'Dreevvr, the
foripor a dealer in piano-, and 'the
latter tint ingenious German M us ician
and artisan. This invention has beenl
in progres.i of development for many
m1ointiht. but only with in a few (a3s
has a 'p-ifect instrumcit been comple.
teikand tested satittctorily.
.1ho action of the now instrument
is the sainj as in other pianos ; it has.
the usual numuber of octaves and pod..!
als. The tone can be -vuried froml
soft to loud, aind 4,; far superior -in
richness and depth, and is as clear
'and sweet as cani b) inil gin1ed. The.,
peculiar feature of the invention is
that, iistead of strings stretched
icros4.a sounding-board, small steel
toigue., each with a book, or-arrn, onl,
ei-her side, are attuchel to the ound.

'siiliar to thoso of the ordinary in
Itrllnent, only the tongue atid hain
'mer are worked prcrpendicularly.
'Otie hook of each tongue beirg half
the leigth of tho other, yields a tone
an oiitavo higher, thus each stroko of
the hammor produces tLwo notes an1
octavo apart. The vibration produc
ed is full ats continuonus as that obt-ain
ed frpiu strings, and th' tone is readi
ly atopped [y th11t a pplication of a
check or damper. Of conise, such an
