Wellington hajt borne witness to that fact in his remarks that Talavera. was the only battle in which be hail a numerical superiority, owing to the presence of the Spaniards, who, while showing much personal gallantry, were badly led. At all his other battles he had fewer men than the enemy. "At Sala- roaca I had 40.000 men, and the French perhap* -*5,o6o; At Vittorla I had 60,000 men against 70,000. At Waterloo the proportion wae still more ngalnsl me.' I had 96,000 to 58,000; Napoleon had near 80,000. ' The whole army In the south of France under my command was considerably larger thnn the force of Soult-at the ·battle of Ton- louse, but In numbers actually' employed. In that battle I had less than he."

NEW RECORDS for your TALKING MACHINE Al Jolson scores again for Columbia. . In the August group of records just put out .by ,thia company is to be found the latest Winter Garden' aoog success by.Broadway's versatile blnck-face idol. It »» M Hock-*-bye Your B4sbjr ·with.a Dixie Melody"--and they who have eeea "Sinbad" eay that when Mr. Jolson amblei out and begins to sing . the lines the solid South rises with 'great applause. It's just as popular Norti, Bast and West, too. I through thnt jams classic, "The Cotton Pickers' Ball." It is full of wild, weird minors from monster marimbas--with xylophones and (wrasophones syncopating neck and neck. On the back u a medley onc^etep by tb* same wonderful ' combination. Here's "The Daughter of Bosie O'Grady"--and could a pretty girl or popular song aak for a better, introduction than that? The record by that name which the Columbia Graph- ophone Company, has iavued among ita August hits; is 'every bit as sweet and catcfa'y as its namesake, the original · "Rosie.", Sung by Robert Lewis, with , K haunting bit of violin music that carries one back to the old days, when ''Basic O'Grady" w»s sung from coast to-cosat. : ; . Are you.looking for a new kind of dance music? Something with a new ·kind of a "p-jnch" to it? You'll find 'it in the August Columbia,record on "which the Maruabaphone Band brecxes Charics Erince richly fiescrvcs tho title of "Walti Waard"--as you -will agree if you've ever danced to the dreamy strains of'his superb orchestra, as recorded on .a Columbia dacce record. In the August group of Col'.imbia offerings are two. splendid old-world waltzes, "Danube Waves" and "Tou- jours ou Jamais," conducted by Mr. Prince in his own raaetcrly fashion. Sure proof of tho popularity of a song is to find it sung by the soldiers. That a what has happened already to "I Wonder What They Are Doing: Tonight?"--a raelpdy which you ciuy hear on a Columbia August record.. IV is sun^ by Arthur Fields (who's a soldier himself) nnd tbe Peerless Quartette. And on tbe back is an equal nng fresh from "Oh. Look." New York'e. sensational musical fomcdy. success. | Wak Until- the."Number" Answers or the Operator Reports O NE of the things that causes telephone congestion is the practice of abandoning calls. Very often-a subscriber willcali a. number and if · he doesn't get an almost instantaneous connection will hang up and try again later. He feels that minutes have elapsed .while, in reality, it has been Kut a matter of seconds. This hanging ; iip of your telephone receiver means that your time, and the time and labor of the, operator, has been wasted and the whole ·'.-, ."operation repeated later; then again if the called party comes on the line the operator must . answer: "Party's gone" or."Excuse it, please.". Please remain at your telephone until the called iubscriber answers or the operator reports. This will liieari avsaving in the time and effort of .the : thrreparries to the'call, and involve less use of - the lines and- equipment-:at ·'·*·time when the Telephone Gqnspany is striving to avoid unnecessary service congestion, when all its facilities are directed to the task of nweting die increasing vgeneral needs, of the country. TEIJ5PHONB 00 "Roek-a-Bye Your Baby with a. Dixie Melody"--that's the line that -gives .this sprig-: its title, and that's the place the Solid South stands up and applauds. A Winter Garden- hit sweeping North, East arid West, as-well- as South. A2560--75c Here's u The Daughter ' * 9 of Rosie -- and every bit as sweet -as her mother was before her. A song already nationally popular -- with just such a dreamy lilt and cadence as made its namesake famous. Sung by Robert Lewis with an orchestral accompaniment in which the vioh'ns weave fascinating strains of the . old " Rosie " through the dominating melody of the new. On the back, " Bye-and-Bye," a beautiful song of soldier hope.. A2561-- 75c ^Marimbaphone Band Breezes Through "Cotton Pickers Ball" A new kind of dance music!. Full of dash, and sparkle and the wild weird minors of monster marimbas syncopating neck and neck. As for the tune--this jazz-classic needs, no introduction to dancers.
