VERILY co-operation is power. We have seen and
experienced, its power. Tne success of this sale is the
r n l a. ii
proot. ror nere we are announcing tne close 01 tn
sale in one week when we had not expected to an
nounce it for three weeks later.
Do you know what this announcement means?
It means that we have practically sold these seven hundred pianos and three
hundred player-pianos in Ave weeks.
For to-day although this is Monday we are certain we shall not have
enough instruments left to fill all orders throughout the entire week. That is
if customers pour in upon us this week as they did last week. And it is certain
that they will.
For when dozens of persons read the heading of this ad and realize that it is
"now or never" they will swamp us with applications.
We know of enough persons who have told us they would take a piano or a
player-piano before the sale closed, to book orders for every instrument now re
Applications for pianos and player-pianos will
be received up to close of business Monday
This was decided upon last week: That we would supply the instruments we
now have, out of the original number intended for the sale, as long as they
last, then take orders until the close of business Monday, next.
In this way every one gets a square deal the late comer this week, and those who come next
Monday, however, may have to wait, a tew days before having his piano delivered.
In this way, also -no one need miss this unparalleled opportunity. For we will make immediate
deliveries as long as any instruments remain unsold and as soon as the last one goes we will then
tak- your application and deliver your piano in the numerical order in which it was taken.
This, of course, is done subject to the same condition that have made this sale tin- most talked
of event in piano circles for years namely, that your piano will be personally selected at the factory
by Mr. Wagner: that it wiH be inspected and passed upon by Mr. Nahan Franko upon its arrival,
and then delivered to your home for a thirty days' trial, which, it' not satisfactory entitles you to your
