The top of page 5 has a column headed: "AN EVENING WITH EDISON. What The Phonograph Can Do." with various subheads including: "It's Inventor's Practiced Hand Makes It Sing In Time and Tune--It Repeats Levy's Harmony & the Babbling of a Crowd..." with more (see).  This article takes over half a column and is a great analysis of this modern marvel of the 19th century.
