The auxetophoxie is the thing that plays a violoncello by compressed air It is the invention of C. A. Parsons of turbine fame, "and is ap attachment for musical instruments whereby the tone, of the latter, is appreciably increased by means of a current of compressed air. It Is a comb or multiple reed valve of aluminum, which is so hinged that each tooth of the comb can vibrate at a variable distance from a corresponding slot in a little box, to which compresed air is supplied at about flVe pounds pressure. The farther away the teeth are from the slots the greater the flow of air, and vice versa. The flow of air Is controlled by a valve, and when caused to vibrate, the air transmits corresponding sound waves into the trumpet. When the auxetophone is applied to the cello or any other stringed in- Infantile Paralysis ;. In au .a ^dress at the Harvard Medical BCIIQQJ on "Infantile Paralysis," Dr. R.

Thus the valve la caused to vibrate in accord with tha characteristic tone of tue instrument. The sound issuing from tie trumpet, though in many respects Identical with that of the Instrument itself, la at the same time richer in character and greater in volume. At a recent concert In London on« of the program features was a violoncello solo rendered In conjunction with the auxetophone. At the concert the possibiiities of the invention were strikingly evidenced. The tone of tha instrument was appreciably fuller, richer and stronger. W^.hen the auxeto­ phone was attartied the harmonies were more clearly defined than is possible without the attachment. The fortissimo pass.iges of the tones had a solid, ,well rounded ring of great volume. In the pianissimo passages the expression was enhanced by a softness and distinct clearness of I tone.
