T TT TE were sitting in the V V dark, my wife and I, thinking of the long ago. Do you remember that old song we used to sing. Will!' she asked suddenly. I pressed her hand, and rising softly put T -rive's. Old Sweet Sonar into mv rianola. I played very softly as one can do simply by pressing gently on the pedals. Then she began. Fuller and fuller her dear voice rose and, as it did so, I increased the pressure, holding the tones by a touch of the Sustaining Pedal. I was supporting-her by an exquisite 'sustained tone effect, which none but a master musician can accomplish upon the piano. As the notes came quicker I touched the wonderful Metrostyle lever which quickens or retards even the slightest phrase. When she' paused I pressed it to the side and paused too. Every whispered inflection others I was able to follow by means of the wonderful patented .'expression' devices of the Pianola. "There was a pause when she finished. Then she whispered, 'What wonderful accompaniment ! ' "It really was but the Pianola itself is wonderful. With a little pleasant application it enables you to reflect every phrase of a singer's feeling in the accompaniment every effect a practiced pianist can develop on a good piano. Every slightest pause, every lightest accent is brought out with the most delicate reflection of your mood. You can linger on a passage or quicken it You can sink it away or swell it forth. And you can do all these things through but three simple levers which have placed the Pianola far above the performances of any mechanical player!" m PIANOLA Enables you to play the piano well Important : res saeWst wasleTesaas' fssf I aers U hut ens JHoaoia; it it wmii tmlg if i- iff rat en (ass sals' eae If m, awe) It ee-feiaaHs in fas Wloewnf j ) S3 Th eoW Ksssein Prim Tna Srsissar Piaaoia Tag Srxrs Pianota Tag Wswaiaca Piasola Tag SrvrvsaasT PiaaoLa Tag Sraocns Pianaaa Tna Fsawca Wgasa PiasoLs iVssssss $SiO itiiO We want 70a to come to our tore and hear tbe genuine Pianola.
