Installs A Large
Radio Set Public
The Set is one of the HZ-Type of
the Clapp-Eastman Co., and one that
is built to receive any message sent
out over the middle west and west.
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. The program
below was a splendid one sent out
from Calgary, Can., Wednesday eve
"If Mama is Papa, (band)." "Listen
to the Mocking Bird, (solo)," 'Roam
ing in the Glooming" (song) by Harry
Lauder." "American National Airs,(
accordian and piano)". "Eight o'clock
