ANGELOPHONE HYMN RECORDS
In our issue of June 15, 1916, we announced arrangements by which our readers may obtain the Angelophone at Jobbers’ prices, one-third of the usual retail prices—$8.33, $16.67, $33.33, instead of $25.00, $50, $100.
Now we have a still more important announcement—Angelophone Records of 50 of our most beautiful hymns. They gave us the selection of them. We are confident that all WATCH TOWER readers will appreciate them, and believe that they will have a very wide circulation everywhere. They are 7-inch records, “hill and dale cut,” of a size which usually sells for 35c up. But, indeed, such hymns and in such variety are not to be had anywhere for any money.
The Singer’s voice is excellent, clear, distinct—quite unlike hymn tunes you have usually heard, very few of which can be understood. They are the work of Prof. Henry Burr, the well-known barytone.
NOW THE ASTONISHING FEATURE!
The entire set of 50 hymns can be ordered through us for $5—only ten cents per record.
With a view to stimulating daily family worship (having this excellent singer’s voice to lead), the hymns with music have been published in neat, attractive form at 5c and 10c per copy, according to binding—postage 2c extra.
At our request the Angelophone Company are mailing to the Secretaries of the principal classes a sample record and a sample each of the two hymn-books. If a quantity of the books and records are ordered together, carriage charges will be prepaid in the United States. These records are known as the original “hill and dale cut,” the same as the ones used by Edison and Pathe. It contains a great deal more music to the inch than the zigzag cut. The latter is used by the Victor and was gotten out to avoid the patents covering the original, superior “hill and dale cut”; said patents have now expired.
The Angelophone has a reversible sound-box, which permits it to play any kind of record made. But not so the Victor and Columbia machines: to use the Angelico records on them, a little sleeve is necessary, which can be purchased at any 10c store, or can be ordered with the books and records. Address orders to ANGELICO, 28 West 63d Street, New York City, or to 184 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, New York.
* * * *
It affords us genuine pleasure to think that Bible Students can now have in their homes phonograph music which really represents their sentiments—much better than does the majority of the jiggy, rag-time stuff usually sold at from 60c to $1 per record.
“A little nonsense now and then,
Is relished by the best of men;”
But nonsense all the time nauseates even the worldly. On the other hand, there is a sweet, quieting influence exerted by the beautiful hymns of our selection which go to the heart of old and young, saint and sinner. Surely, Bible Students will wish to “Lift high the Royal banner,” and to show forth the praises of their King! And such hymns as these in so clear and distinct a voice will surely appeal to your neighbor, too.
We are glad that these records have come out in time for the Holiday Season and the longer winter evenings. We have warned the Angelophone Company to be prepared for many large orders to be shipped out promptly. We vouch for the Angelophone Company that you may safely send the money for whatever you may wish to order, by P.O. Order.

THE WATCH TOWER IN GERMAN
The war has interfered greatly with the regular arrivals of the German WATCH TOWER. To meet the difficulty we have started to issue a German edition from Brooklyn. Our German Brethren will please note this and act accordingly. We expect to continue it only until the mail service from Germany becomes regular again. Our American edition is a monthly in two sections—$1.00 per year, two copies to each subscriber.
NOTE A CORRECTION
In Oct. 15 Tower, p. 312, referring to three classes for whom Jesus becomes Surety or Guarantor, the reading should be:
“Our great Advocate, the High Priest, having endorsed for all of these, will thus be ultimately free from all liability for them in that they all will have died according to the flesh and none of them will receive or retain Restitution rights or privileges. Those Restitution blessings will be fully and completely released when the last member of the Spirit-begotten shall have gone into death.”
