Mistress. "YOU NEEDN'T BE SO FRIGHTENED, MARIA.
IT'S ONLY THE PHONOGRAPH."
Maria. "LOR', MUM! I THOUGHT IT WAS A SEWING-MACHINE. AND I ONLY JUST TOUCHED THE HANDLE, AND IT SPOKE JUST LIKE THE VERY MORAL OF MASTER!"

HOW MUCH BETTER IF, INSTEAD OF ITALIAN ORGAN-GRINDERS PARADING OVER OUR STREETS, WE COULD HAVE FAIR FEMALE PHONOGRAPHERS PLAYING OUR BEST POETS IN THEIR ORIGINAL VOICES!
