OTHING can tell the story of the suc
cess ot tms sale so well as this. Two
hundred and forty of the three
hundred player-pianos intended for this
sale have already been sold.
The heading ofthis ad tells two thin gs: First thatthe
sale has been an overwhelming success and. Second,
it tells of the growing popularity of the player-piano.
The wonder is, however, that there is not still a
larger proportion of player-pianos sold to pianos,
mi l 1 li fisS
1 he player-piano, when all IS said, is
nothing more than a piano.
It differs only from a regular piano in
that is has an extra action within it
which makes it playable by any and
every one. Why should not all the
pianos sold be player-pianos, excepting
I that they cost a little more?
Uy r-j A'Ta.: r i i x
nut this is uriirinjj iroin me sunjeei.
The point in mind is there remains but sixty
more of these player -pianos to be sold through
this most liberal of liberal plans.
