l For the benefit of those who have never heard the Eolian and arc therefore
unfamiliar with it we would say that it is the ideal instrument for a country house It
will ply any piece of music ever written and thusrenders availableat all times concert
and operatic selections as well as music for singing and dancing The A Eolian appeals
to every member of the household for in addition to plying every variety of music to
suit all tastes it can be played by any one even those who have never taken a music
lesson after a few days practice
A knowledge of this simplicity has led manypeopleto assume that the Eolian is
merely a mechanical instrument and as such not worthy of serious consideration This is
a most decided error and one that is only committed by those unacquaintedwith the
splendid qualities of the instrument
Senor Pablo Sarasatc the famous violinist has said of the Eolian a a musical
instrument it is artistic in the true senseof thc word To his endorsement ha musica
added warm words of commendation from Anton Seidl Luigi Arditi A Vianesi P S

seem to have entered upon tho task of turning
the rascals out in good lnrk onlan fashion
In a bilef spneo of time olcht mlnutos by a
stopwatch the attacking column of serpents
tho first onset of which was like tho roar of a
mad rlvor ndvnncini from subterranean re

reptiles and thn men as speedily dlsjiosed of
the rivulet Ity arithmetical computation It
was discovered that 114 roptlles had boen

The two men who are credited with tho
slaughter senm to have escaped without any
injury except n 1 slluht strain of the arms re
sulting from tho enemy displayed in the work
of extermination onorry
The thrillingoxperlenco of Mr Dolbeareand
Mr linker almost deserves to rank with thnt of
Mr1 Cornelius Vanderhook of becaucus r J
While we cannot vouch forth truth of Mr
Vandorhonks statements Ills only fair to noto
that the later claims to havo killed the more
snakes I Is claimed that the New Jersey
episode tool place just after nn election In
llergen county and it Is I possible that liquor
WHS used inthnt contest but on the day on
which Mr Vanderhook set out to mol the
ronrshesl near his domicile he was probably as
dry as tho MontvllU well Mr Vanderhook
began his task In a listless fashion but soon
became conscious that the bcrtho was meet
Ing with great resistance
Upon looking more closely around him ho
was ostoundodto ene that the wholo meadow
wa literally a loathsome nld of snakes
Mhloli wero so close together ns to hide tho
crass absolutely from view Their repulsive
heads nllvo with awful lury and malignant

dueallko motion as cross before tho wind A
