H t Here is the answer HERR are nearly 100 different makes of talking machines and so-called Phono graphs on the market. Each differs from ths others in certain mechanical details, but all have a common characteristic in varying degree, viz.:—a strident and unnatural tone. So much for all talking machines. T Now with reference to 9 B Y actual comparison with more than a score of great singers and instrumentalists it has been demonstrated that the New Edison re-creates all forms of music with such literal fidelity that the original cannot be distinguished from the Re-Creation when both are heard in direct comparison. The truthfulness of this statement is not open to question. These comparisons were made in public before more than 300,000 people and are chronicled in nearly 300 of America's principal newspapers. No talking machine could sustain such a test and no talking machine manufacturer would dare to submit his machine to such a test in public. Therefore, you will understand why we say the New Edison is not a talking machine. Come to Our Store We want you to hear this wonderful new instrument. We want you to read what the leading newspapers have to say about this New Edison invention. But most of all we want you to hear the instrument itself. SAMPSON MUSIC COMPANY 913 MAIN ST.
