Give Your Boy an Education.
W hat is the money value of an
education? The average reduced to
individual cases would be something
like this: Two boys, age 14, are
both interested in mechanics. One
goes into the shops, the other into
a technical school. The boy in the
shops starts at $4 a week, and by
the time he is 18 he is getting
$7. At that age the other boy is
leaving school and starting work at
$10 a week. At 20 the shop-train
ed young fellow is getting $0.50
and the technical graduate $15; at
22 the former's weekly wages is
$11.50, and the latter's $20; and by
the time they are both 25 the shop
worker finds $12.75 in his pay en
velope while the technically trained
man draws a salary of $31.
These figures are based on a study
of 2,000 actual workers made by
the Massachusetts commission for
industrial and technical education.

Everything In Its Class
Even among people there are intellectual, education
al, moral and other differences in individuals. So in
every article of commerce there are diversities of grades
and das a. Each article should be represented in the
class to ? .'ich it belongs. We sell some of the best
pi -s brit we also sell some which are not so good as
the best. Every piano we sell is represented in the
class to which it belongs. We do not represent a third
class piano as first class, nor do we ask you from $75 to
$100 more for a piano than it is legitimately worth.
You can depend upon what we tell you about a piano,
and we give you better value for the money than can be
obtained elsewhere. We can refer you to hundreds of
piano customers who will back up what we say. Call
upon us or write us.
