JSi flic Edison Disc
Hi U
The public has decided that question. The public has decided that it
is a musical .instrument. A famons musician says it is the "greatest
musical instrument in the world."
It was not by accident that Mr. Edisou discovered the secret of re
cording and reproducing the overtones or tone colors of music. It is this
discovery which makes the Edison Disc Phonograph a musical instrur
tnent and distinguishes it from talking machines. To accomplish this
result, Mr. Edison has spent an amount of money which would stagger
any manufacturer. He has spent years of his time, and his time is ad
mitted to be more valuable than that of an v other man in oursuit of the
ideals which are realized iu the Edison Disc Phouograph.
We want you to come in and hear this wonderful instrument. Hear
