At first curiosity increased the clientele on the forbidden street
and there was even word of respectable ladies who disguised
themselves as workers in order to observe the novelty of the
phonograph from first hand. But from so much and such close
observation they soon reached the conclusion that it was not
an enchanted mill as everyone had thought and as the matrons
had said, But a mechanical trick that could not be compared with
something so moving, so human, and so full of everyday truth as
a band of musicians.
