The Melville Clark Piano Company are the originators of the 88-note player piano and the pioneers in that line of industry. For eight years the Apollo enjoyed a monopoly in this field and thousands of these instruments were sold before any other 88-note player was put on the market. No 88-note player piano is original unless the namc MELVILLE CLARK


All other manufacturers of 88-note player pianos must follow. They

There is NO OTHER PLAYER PIANO IN THE WORLD whose pneumatic fingers touch strike the piano key as they are struck by the greatest pianists. The logic of the situation is this: the human touch in the MELVILLE CLARK APOLLO PLAYER PIANO secures the same delicately graduated expression that is obtained by the human touch in manual playing. The human mind is the guiding power back of the player piano operator as well as of the pianist. 11 that intelligence is rightly used, the same sensuous expression is the result in one case as in the other.

The human touch that secures the distinctively human expression is the most prominent trait in the Melville Clark Apollo-Piano.


Other important features are THE ADJUSTING AND TRANSPOSING DEVICE, that changes the music to any key; THE 88-NOTE RANGE, that

the entire piano keyboard, and THE SELF-ACTING MOTOR that prevents the inartistic effects sure to follow any sudden change in the tempo.

These superior phases in Apollo Player Piano construction give the Apollo a specific value and make it the most desirable player in the world for the musical home.

Let there be no misunderstanding! You neither agree to purchase my typewriter after trial nor to obligate yourself in any way to purchase. You make no first payment-no deposit-you pay no express charges.

This is a "show me" age, and I want you to find out for yourself, as hundreds of other shrewd business men have found out, just how superior the Fox Visible Typewriter is to every other typewriter on the market. I want to give youat my expense — the actual proof that your own eyes and common sense will vouch for.

This is the way I sell typewriters. Don't you agree with me that it is a fair, honest, "square deal” way?

I do not belong to any trust and no one dictates to me at what PRICE I shall sell nor on what TERMS I shall sell. It's no joke to successfully sell typewriters in competition with a big trust, and I have simply got to build my typewriter better than the others—not merely "just as good"-or I wouldn't stand the ghost of a show in competition.

My typewriter will substantiate every word I claim for it in my advertisements, and is the most durable and highly perfected Visible Typewriter in ihe world. Aside from the extreme durability of the Fox Visible Typewriter it has as many automatic features as can be found on all other makes combined. A two-color ribbon, back space key, tabulator, speed changeable instantly from regular to high, detachable platen, five different interchangeable carriages, autom ic ribbon verse. Oscillating ribbon movement, detachable ribbon reels, line and margin locks, adjustable type-bar hangers, stencil cutting device, and absolute visibility. WILL YOU DO THIS?—Let me appeal to you as a fairminded business man to at least be friendly enough to give me a chance to "show you"-at my—what I have. All I want you to do is to fill out the attached coupon and send it to me personally. Send for my catalog anyway.
