Wit IU i es uou can hav0 uch a phonograph Let us show you the Certificate of Authenticity which Emerson Williams and Jean -Mac Neil have signed. This is the outstanding fact which comes to you out of the memorable tone-test recital given last Friday at the Luth eran Church : A new era in music is here. Mr. Edison has lifted the phonograph to the dignity of' a new art. You can no longer be satisfied with a phonograph that imitates. Now, you want a phonograph that equals the human voice. You know there is such a phonograph. Mr. Edison made an astounding test with the Official Laboratory Model of the New Edison. North Platte heard the New Edison He-Crente the. voices of Emrson Williams and Jean Mac Neil in direct comparison with their living voices. So realistic was the New Edison's performance that no one in the entire audience could distinguish it from the I living voices of these artists. The NEW EDISON "THE PHONOGRAPH WITH A SOUL." . n. You yourself can have such a phonograph. Let us show you exact duplicates of the Official Laboratory Model, which triumphed in the tone-test Let us show you the Certificate of Authenticity, which these artists have signed, after inspecting these instruments, and in which they declare that these instruments are the equals in every respect of the intsrument used in the tone-test You can buy your New Edison on a Budget Plan which so distributes the payme nts that you'll hardly feel them DIXON MUSIC SHOP.

COUNCIL URGED TO RECONSIDER OFFICE KS OP WELFARE HOARD mioTi:sT pool hall license J.IL VanCleavo and DorBoyLcy poldt appeared beforo tho City Coun cil Tuesday evening and asked that body to reconsider Us action at a for mer mooting In granting n licenso to Messrs Hamm and Deal for a pool and billiard hall in th0 room formerly occupied by tho Liberty Inn. Thoy appeared as representatives of tho Public Welfare Board which had un animously passed a resolution, to that offect Mr. VanOloavo staed that thoro was always moro or less com plaint against tho pool halls becauso thoy woro subject to special laws and charges woro mado from tlmo to tlmo that thoy wero not living up to theso laws. He said that it added to tho burden of control ovorytlmo nn addi tional placo was ppenod. Ho said tho Board was not at present in favor of closing tho pool halls whflch kept within tho law but that thoro was a strong sentiment In tho city In favor of voting them out and It wtis this sentiment that must bo considered. Ho said that they wore a substitute for cortaln Institutions which North Platto is slow in providing for n'nd until some provision Is mado to moot tho need, tho pool halls, ,proporly con ducted should remain. "But," con ned Mr. VanCleavo, "thoy must bo proporly conducted or It will not bo posstblo to check the movement for tlilr nvnrflii.rtw t TT. n1rn,i it. n .. ti uiu coun cil, if IT wore at all possible, to allow tho Board to mako representations against licensing nny moro Tool Halls Additional reasons Wero gyen In sup jport of tho stand taken b tho Board but they woro against tho general proposition nmLnot agalnBt tho men who havo secured thollconso. Tho' Councllmen dlscussoTl Iho-Wttorfe- prosslng thenjiBolves. freely on the proposition. Tho idea was advanced that tho license had been issued at a previous meeting and that Messrs. Hamm and Real had signed a leaso, had ordered a largo amount of fur nlturo and equipment and had mado othor arrangements which could not bo wlthrawn without considerable sac rifice. Since no charges had boon j brought, asking for tho withdrawal of tho Hconso it would bo unfair to tako tho matter up again until tho licenso j expired or charges woro filed.' Ono member said ho was ready to tako I away tho license of any pool hnll upon i charges of tho Wolfaro Board but that ho thought each pool hall was entitled to do business undisturbed ns long as' It lived within tho law, Tho opinion provallcd that It was too lato to open tho matter in this case. LARGE CONSUMERS OF OAS TO I'AY HIGHER HATE AFTEI NOV. 1ST. Tho North Platto Light & Power Co. has announced that after No' 1st tho rato of $1.G0 a thousand feet will bo .charged all consumers, Instead of tho sliding scalo which has been In forco up' to that time. Small consumers "will not bo nffected by this chango but larger consumers will havo to pay moro. This increaso Is rendered ne cessary on account of tho hlghor prices of tho raw materials from which gns Is mado. Thb figures gath ered by tho Company Bhow that only ono othor city In Nebraska has as low a rato on gas as has North Platto; This Is Lincoln whoro tho rato Is tho samo with cheaper raw materials. ::o::i 110NDS CARRIED 1Y 1IIO MAJORITY AT THE SPECIAL ELECTION The Waterworks Improvement bonds woro carried at tho special elec tion hold Tuosday by n voto o 187 for to 41 against This provides for $50, 000 for additions, ropalrs and roplace mont for tho waterworks system In North Platte.
