There is no doubt, no question of the superiority of the Edison phonograph and Edison Gold-moulded records. They are the very finest in the world. Edison, that wonderful wizard in invention, perfected the phonograph, until the tones of the human voice in all the various modulations are reproduced so naturally that you recognise at once who is speaking or who is singing. Edison gold-moulded records stand alone in the perfect reproduction of sound. Be it a band of sixty-two pieces bo it a comic minstrel with his banjo ; be it a recitation, humorous or tragical ; be it the finest singer in the world, the Edison Gold-moulded record reproduces, by the aid of the Edison phonograph, absolutely, naturally. Nothing gives such conclusive evidence as your own personal comparison and experience. Therefore, I invite you—l urge you to visit my store, and let mo give you a practical demonstration of the beauty and perfection of the Edison goldmoulded records with the Edison phonograph. Just think of the coming holidays, and how charming a Christmas offering to your family or friends a good Edison phonograph will 'be. Anyway, drop in and be entertained for a while.
