The set is equipped with a loud speak er, which enables one to hear it sev eral blocks away, if it is turned on full force. The concert Sunday night could be heard plainly up at the court house. The set has two stages of amplifications and the loud speak er has also two stages, this enables Mr- Robinson to catch the faintest electric waves ancf1 intensify them so they can be plainly understood. Since getting the set in working order he has been getting concerts, music and speaking from several of the sending stations on the Mississippi valley. This is the second set to be installed in Washburn, as C. I. Walls has had a set in his store for the past few weeks. The set of Mr. Walls, has not a loud speaker, but it is understood that he has one ondered. The installing of this set by Mr. Robinsop is in keeping with his idea to give the best entertainments he can to his patrons. Below is a sample of the concerts he has btfen receiving.
