"The Iowa idea" was the next sub

market h.v aliout a year.
Tliey alxvays have been Gold-mouM-ed.
A fold inouM is tbe only eeoiionii
eal and etlieient mould known to the
.Moulded records are superior to tlie
old en jt raved records because they
may be made of harder material,
ilard records last longer and have a
better quality of tone.
A guld-moulded record made of soft
material would be no better in quality
than an engraved record in soft ma
terial. The best moulded records are not
only (iold-niouldt d. They are super
hardened. tlold-mouldcd records are less ex
pensixe than engraved records. The
process is simpler.
Formerly, blank cylinders were
moulded, then shaved, then engraved
from an original. The originals soon
xvore out under the reproducing
Now, a gold-lined mould is made
from the original, and the product of 1
that mould is a smoothly finished c. 1
inder, with the sound record already
m it. The life of the original is in
creased 10 times, a hundred times, :v
a thousand times.
A record is not more expensive be
cause it is gold-moulded.
It is less expensive.
Columbia .Moulded Cylinder Keeord-i
are new records, made by a nexv pro
cess. They are not only gold-moulded.
They are super-harde.ied.
Irrespective of price, they are su
perior in piality to any other gold
moulded record on the market, and
they sell for only 'J" cents.
We have just received a large ship
ment of these improved records, mak
ing our stock a very complete one.
