A Pertinent Inquiry
Do you know that for a little more
thin it costs to take your family to
the theatre once, von can have a
Uraphophc uo, which is equal to a
dozen theatrical performances rolled
Into ono, for with it yon can r- pro
duce all tho songs, iweclies and
musical selections that you wish to
hear? You get a combination of an
oiehcstra, theatre, concert and up end
of novel and delightful entertain
ments. Nothing is truer than the asser
tion that the Urapbophone entertains
everybody everywhere. Those who
are not familiar with this wonder
ful instrument have much to learn
that will add to their pleasure.
