are too popular
The popularity of the Victrola talking machine
has become so great that the factory is unable to sup
ply the immense demand. The purity of the Victrola's
tone, the beauty of its woodwork, and the superiority
of the artists who make its records have all combined
to make this machine supreme in its popularity.
The following telegram was received in answer to
another telegram from us, urging the immediate ship
ment of more Victrolas to supply a number of orders
that we have:
