Only the best instrument
could be so famous
A few facts every music lover
should know about the Victrola
Its history: Every real accomplishment in the higher develop
ment of the talking machine art is the result of Victor skill.
Victor first made the talking machine an instrument of art and
has maintained its leadership ever since.
Its makers: The Victor Company is a creative organization.
It has spent years of effort and millions of dollars in perfecting
the Victrola. It is the only organization qualified by experience,
resources and equipment to produce an instrument of such quality
as the Victrola.
Its artists: Practically every great singer and instrumentalist in
the world has voluntarily selected the Victrola as the leader and
has therefore made records for it. Only on the Victrola do you
hear these great artists exactly as they approved their work and
expect it to be reproduced.
Its records: The Victor Record Catalog offers more music and
greater music for your choice than any other music catalog ever
printed. And these records are made specially to play on Victor
instruments. ]
Its public: All over the world wherever the finest music is j
heard, the Victrola is the chosen instrument. Both in the quality
of its music and the number of instruments actually in use, the
Victrola stands supreme.
When artists and public both agree, can
there be any possible doubt as to which in
strument you should buy for your home?

Conference of Trolley Repre
sentatives and Freeholders
Held Yesterday
SOUTH AMBOY, Sept 16:—Fol
lowing a conference between free
holders. representatives of the Pub
lic Service Railway Company and the
Jersey Central Traction Company
and a representative of the residents
in the neighborhood of Main street
and SI evens avenue yesterday morn
ing, William H. Hitchcock, superin
tendent of the traction company,
agreed to have the trolley tracks
not In use at the point removed
provided the company’s funds would
permit.
The meeting was held at 10
o'clock and resulted from numerous
complaints being received from resi
dents in that vicinity against the
noise caused by automobiles in pass
ing over these tracks, which hav«
been used but rarely for several
years. The tracks lead to the Jersej
Central Traction Company's sub
station at the corner of Fourth stree
and Stevens avenue. This piece u:
track was laid several years agf
when the route to Perth Amboy froir
this city was established, goinj
through the Meehanicsville section
The route was later diverted to g<
down Main street and continue ovei
the Pennsylvania right-of-way, bu
the original tracks were never re
moved.
The property owners threatenec
recourse to law if there was no rem
edy for existing conditions, claimini
the walls In their houses were dam
aged by the heavy jarring caused b:
large trucks going over these tracks
The city was notified and the count;
and state highway officials were nex
advised on the conditions. The con
ferenca yesterday was a result o
Ik
those complaints.
Superintendent Hitchcock at the
opening of the conference gave lit
tle hope of his company removing
the tracks but later said he thought
they could be removed if the com
pany’s finances could stand the pres
sure.
Owing to the fact that the state
road Intersects with the county road
at this point the state officials must
also be consulted before definite ac
tion is taken. The freeholders were
j of the opinion that the cost of re
moving the tracks would be money
well spent. Freeholders William S.
Dey, Clarence M. Haight, Louis J.
Belloff and George S. Applegate were
| present, together with their clerk,
I Thomas J. Mulvihill. E. H. Housefi
I represented the Public Service and
j Patrick Cooney the property owners.

of two bullet wounds Inflicted by a ;
! gun alleged to be in the hands of

SAN MAKE CLAMP, BUT
NOT SELL THEM, COURT SAYS
Philip Windman, of 108 Kearny
ivenue, through a ruling by Vice
Chancellor Backes may continue to
manufacture the American ground
i lamp but cannot sell the clamps.
The ruling was the result of a chan
cery action brought by Windman
Goldsmlth, Inc., and David Gold
smith, a local Arm manufacturing
the Wlndman ground clamp, also an
invention of Philip Windman, to re
strain Windman from selling or dis
posing: of the clamp on the ground
that through an agreement with the
defendant the complainants are en
titled to ail the inventions of the de
fendant.
The complainants maintained that
the clamp now being made by Wind
man had been invented by him while
a member of that company and that
this fact and the agreement entitled
them to the invention. Windman In
his answer denied that the clamp
was invented by him while a mem
ber of the Arm and maintained he
had been forced out of Windman
Goldsmith Inc., and had then gone
i into business for himself, under the
Arm name of Windman Electric
i Company, which was later changed
to American Electric Manufacturing
Company to avoid confusion.

CLOTHES are either finely made or poorly made.
If those you purchase are finely made, life will
be a continual round of joy; for they’ll fit you, be
come you, set you a peg or two above even the best
dressers you know.
If they are poorly made they can’t fit well or serve you well
Don’t consider them.
As for medium quality, why bother to think about
it, high quality costs so little additional.
Perhaps you could understand high quality a little
better if you would see how we apply it to our
