In the direction of illslant Vologda and
Tetrorrad. Kantwnrd of the line Shen
kursk Is about half way from Archangel
This Is a dialogue heard when we
left the north Dvlna for the perilous
"Shenkursk: 1 am going there, sec?"
"Will you come? '
We went. We were soon on n com
modious steamboat with a Mississippi
deckhouse. 1'resently we were Menm
ing In a strong current of sherr -colored
water which, seeral hundred j.irds
wide, ran down northward between
shore of clcnn sand.
T.Ike the most ImprcssUe mlle-wlde
river from which we had emerged the
great north DUna the Vaga hat er
dnnt tow banks, sloping up for the most
part Into goodly stretches of farm land,
plowed or planed. Here aro palisnded
pastures where cows and horses graze.
We ticker went nwnv minutes without
seeing on one bank or the other some
lllage of substantial wooden houses. In
n. way the scenery seemed seml-Swlss
and not nil displeasing. Clustered here
and there were church domes or spires,
minarets and graceful cupolas of green
silver or bhlmmerlng gold. Sometimes
there was a low- landscape of rler clear
ings with stunted forest growths, but
always now and again churches even
more sharply breaking the skyline.
Pcnsant groups gathered, often to see
our large boat go by. There were
women and girls, conspicuous In top
boots, with head-dresses, blouses, petti
coats of yellow and red and blue. There
were more somberly clad men, with a
variety of caps, and with beards and
belted shirts, and there were children
nualntly dressed like miniature adults.
At first these sub-Arctlo peoples seemed
to stand spellbound with curiosity, but.
presently they broke away In merry pur
suit of ono another. Over all alike there
seemed to be a spirit of childlike trust
and docility and good temper.
Arriving at Shenkursk, we were wel
comed by scores of citizens Here grown
men were gentle-looking giants. Here
were enthusiastic bos, long-haired
priests, and pretty girls and plump old
ladles. Uagerly these people at the edge
of the world's war zone crossed the rn
ine through which the river way comes
to the town.
Shenkursk might be described as a
prosperous gardm city, built In a river
arm situation of sandy undulations II
has many fine i hurdles rising amid
houses with laigi- gardens looking Into
three-shaped thoroughfares, such as
Shenkursk. But cen here the war has
come. The front of the brick Cossack
barracks lb pitted by bullets. Still the
town's reign of terror had been mild
and brief. It seems that Dolsheikl from
without arrived to stimulate some Bol
shevik rising from within. For a while
the situation had looked sufficiently
grave, but the menace passed wondrous
ly away. The Incoming Bolshevik! didi
not wait for force to come to help their
outgoing. Ken in matters of pillage
and murder they seem to have been
strangely below their traditions.
Visiting the famous Shenkursk con
vent, I seemed to find clues to nn
enigma. Concede of a pass spotlessly
clean, where, amid choice of palms and
singing canaries and pictures of saints,
move with Infinite gentleness forms of
women garbed In black. Of the many
sisters In this retreat, some wcro seen
digging In gardens, some cooking, some
preparing hallowed bread, some painting
Icons. Iery nook, every cloister of this
place appears to breathe something of
the smiling, unsolflsh spirit of the
Mother Superior, who, after her flfty
three years of retirement from the
world, can still consider public affairs
with an Instructed and sympathetic
It was only a few days ago that a
section of mankind In lawless and mur
derous mood had gone blundering into
that sequested haven of altruism.
"I was at the service," the Mother
Superior said, "when word was brought
me that the Bolshevik! had arrived and
were saying I was to be arrested and
the convent and Its goods confiscated, I
went out and found a lot of men speak
ing roughly, I said: '
"I am the Mother Superior, does some
one wish to anest me?"
"They looked at each other awk
wardly. No one seemed ready to speak.
I Mid 'Who Is your leader?'
Recognized the Leader
"They pointed to a young man seated
on a bench a little way distant. I went
to him and said: 'I am told you wish
to arro.it me, Here I am.'
"When he looked up I recognized him,
as a young man of this town, who,
when a boy, used to come to our church.
Ills face became red; he stammered
that I must be mistaken, for nobody
wanted to arrest me. He looked un
comfortable, went away, and mingled
with the others.
"Something else meanwhile was hap
pening. In the dining hall they found
the table spread with food for the meal,
spread as It Is eery day for pur vis
itors. That evening our poor, weaiy,
footsore peasants did not have their
soup, rye bread, kyaxe and other things
we had prepared tor them. The Bolshe
vlkl sat down and devoured everything.
Then all went away, some saying they
would return next morning to confis
cate eery thing. Next morning they
left the town, taking with them the
on -of a priest. They killed him In the

The Secret of the
Superiority of the
A Recital of FACTS That Makes Plain To Everyone the
Difference Between This Wonderful Instrument
and Other Player-Pianos
IF YOU will read the average player-piano adver
tisement you will be filled with admiration for
the writer's vocabulary. You will say to your
self that you did not know there were so many
superlative adjectives in the world.
But you will usually seek in vain, through all
this mass of vague assertion, for a REASON. You
will be told that such - and - such a player-piano is
the best because it is the best.
In this advertisement we explain and even
illustrate by photographs the REASON WHY
the Ampico reproducing piano is so infinitely
superior. When you have read it you will understand.

'Photograph of a portion of the roll of Liszt's Hun
garian Rhapsodie No. 12, as played by an ordinary 88
EVER since John McTammany made the first piano
player roll, cutting it out with his jackknife in the
room of a little hotel in St. Louis, the whole aim of
piano-player construction has been toward eliminating the
Most player-piano makers even the best of them
have succeeded only indifferently well. However faith
fully the mechanism of the ordinary player-piano may
reproduce the artist's technique, it invariably leaves some
thing to be desired in the way of expression. There is a
sense of abruptness, of jerkiness, as in the movements of
a mechanical toy. All through it runs the "tumpty-tum-tum"
of the bass, which in hand playing melts softly away
in a breath of melody.
The Angelus was the only player mechanism which
had overcome this fault until a short time ago there
appeared in the musical world the most marvelous musical
instrument man has yet devised
The Ampico Reproducing Piano
THE Ampico reproducing piano is as different' from
the ordinary player-piano as day is from night. Or,
to put it exactly, as the actual performance of a
master is from the old-style player-piano's imitation of it.
The secret of the Ampico reproducing piano's immeas
urable superiority lies in the fact that it is the only player
mechanism that has completely captured the expression of
the artist, as well as his manual execution. The explana
tion of this is simple :
The ordinary player-piano records a note through the
impression made by the punch on the roll. The impres
sion ends when pressure is removed from the key.
The Ampico reproducing piano records a note through
the VIBRATION OF THE STRING. As long as the note
SINGS, the sound registers, until it passes away naturally
in the faintest whisper. It reproduces what musicians
term the "chemistry of tone."
The illustrations above tell the story better than any
words. One is a portion of the roll of Liszt's Hungarian
Rhapsodie No. 12, as played by an ordinary 88-note player
piano. The other is the same passage as played by an
Ampico reproducing piano.
Notice the curt and scattered notes on the ordinary
player-piano roll. Then mark the amazingly complete rec
ord on the reproducing piano roll. Every dot means some
thing. Everything that the master put into his playing
is there, every nuance, every infinitesimal shade of feeling.
It is putting a man's soul on paper, as well as the genius of
his finger tips.

garian Rhapsodie No. 12, as played by an Ampico repro
It is true that the ordinary player-piano roll does not
come to you in quite so crude a state as when it leaves the
recording piano. A skilled musician goes over it and
"edits" it, lengthening such notesas would otherwise end
too abruptly and in other ways making the playing less
Imagine Godowsky being edited by a factory expert!
It is as if "Paradise Lost" were given to a newspaper copy
reader with instructions to make it rhyme better.
In the Ampico reproducing piano you get the roll as
the master made it. And you get his spirit as he played.
It is all there, and it is always there. Tonight or a year
from now you can hear it just as if he were in your home,

(""J"' vi jv-u ; ll.i.
All because the Ampico reproducing piano has graspei
the one great principle of reproduction. Vibration is the
subtlest of all physical manifestations. It is said to be vibra
tion of the waves of thought that causes mental telepathy.
So the genius who thought to capture and perpetuate the
vibration of piano strings has given to the world its great
est musical marvel.
The Wanamaker Piano Store cordially invites you to
hear a demonstration of the Ampico reproducing piano
whenever you have the time to spare. You will be under
no obligation whatever, and you will be many times repaid
for your trouble by the enjoyment you will get from the
entertainment. Until you have heard the Ampico you
do not know what a piano can do.
