Phonographic Concert

There will be a phonographic concert at the courthouse tomorrow night. This will be the first exhibition of the kind ever held in Madisonville. We want to say to the people that it is something that will be interesting and profitable to all who witness it. It is an instrument that repeats songs, music of all kinds, speeches, etc. It is one of Edison's wonderful inventions. Some one will recite a song on the occasion, and in fifteen minutes it will be reproduced. We advise all to go who can possibly do so. Price of admission 25 cents for adults and 15 cents for children. (Source: Madisonville Hustler, Fri., Mar. 20, 1896)
