The iefens "will continue with the In
troduction of evidence as to the sanity
of the defendant at the time he forged
notes to the amount of $90,000, and it is
believed that it will require all of Mon
day and the greater part of Tuesday' to
examine remaining witnesses.-
LMstrlct Attorney McCourt will intro
duce a number of witnesses in rebuttal
of the Insanity theory, contending that

Never in the musical history of the world
has a singer created such a profound impres
sion and been accorded the ovations which
Lmdwig "Wullner has received everywhere. Not
only is he blessed with a good voice, but his
dramatic ability rivals the work of our most
distinguished actors. He vividly portrays the
spirit of the songs he sings, using the piano
for his accompaniments in a manner heretofore
undreamed of by any other artist. He is ably
assisted by Mr. Bos at the piano and he at
tributes no small share of his remarkable success to the skillful and soulful accompaniment
work of this really great pianist.
The instrument selected to fill this important mission is the glorious Chickering, for in the
Chickering is found that true "singing" tone susceptible to all manners and degrees of shades
and expression emphasizing and illustrating the intent of the composition as no other instru
It has often been said that the Chickering piano represents more closely the human voice
than any other instrument.
In every instance where an artist selects an instrument for his or her own use and is unin
fluenced by a financial consideration the choice invariably is the Chickering. To own a Chick
