PUBLIC LEDaERPHlLADELPHIAV' SATUEDAY, ' y0VE.UBER 0, 1916 .. i ' te Columbus, the Discoverer of America had the courage of his convictions imd, as usual, was the object of envy and jeal ousy by the rich Spanish courtiers, who never did anything but (latter themselves and the king. The old story of Columbus making an egg stand on its end is well worth re membering. ' The way Columbus actually 'did it is this: Upon an occasion of a banquet, where I.Columbus was the guest of honor., some of the people at the table belittled the dis covery, saying it was mere dumb animal persistence and a species of "did not know what to do next" that led Columbus to push his boat, the "Caraval," a few leagues farther on, and a mere matter of chance and of but little consequence. Columbus, sitting by and hearing what was said, took an egg from the dish on the table, proposed that they should show their ingenuity by making the egg stand on its end. The egg traveled all around the table and no one succeeded. Columbus then took it in hand and, breaking it at one end, it stood at once.. They all shouted: "Why, I could ,have""done that!" "Yes," said Columbus, "if the thought struck you; and if the thought struck you and you had gone at it, you might have discovered America." It is not uncommon for neoole to sit still and find fault with what others do, but the man who thinks and acts on his thought has the best chance of winning something for his labor.

(Fifth IJBRARY AMD LI I REDUCIKNNS OF 25 A CHOKE FE S200.000 FUR pB The Superiority of the Ampico Reproducing Piano Is Too Marked to Be Denied There is really no basis of compari son between the Ampico Reproducing Piano and any other reproducing or player-piano, because the principles are entirely different. You may have heard all the other player types and not realize, until you have heard the Ampico, how marvel ously the human performance can be reproduced. The reason for this is that the Am pico records are all made by vibration of the piano wires, whereas the. ordi nary player-piano records a note, through the impression made by a punch on the roll. In the latter case the impression ends when pressure is removed from the key. In the Ampico record the sound registers as long as the note" SINGS. It reproduces what musi cians term the "chemistry of tone." In the Wanamaker Piano Store you will find live of the most cele brated pianos of America incorpo rated into Ampico reproducing pianos.
