What other phonograph
dares this test?
Did you ask someone about the Edison Tone-Test recital given on April 29th at
the Wiiimar Opera House? The startled audience heard Amy Ellerman's liv
ing voice flood the packed house. It then heard the New Edison match that
voice, even unto its finest variation of shading and feeling. It heard the Flem
ing Sisters Trio repeat the experiment with their instrumental selections,—and
again the New Edison matched every quality of harmonized" violin, 'cello and
piano. Anyone who was present will tell you: ..".'.,
The art of the living artist and
its RE-CREATION by the New
Edison can not be told apart.:
It is no idle phrase that you,can enjoy Case, Middleton, Hem-pel, Maltzenauer, Spalding
in your own home. The New Edison brings all "that the great artist can bring, except
his physical presence. It is1 the phonographic triumph: of the age.
Come in and hear this wonder for yourself-—the Ttoee Million-Dollar Phonograph that
BE-CREATES the very soul of music.
