T%OWN through the years the Christmas Gift
*^ of Gifts has been the piano in its varying
forms and stages of development.
From the Dulcimer and Clavichord of early
days to the superb pianoforte of the present, the piano has seemed
to best express the spirit of loving remembrance.
You can bring infinite pleasure and happiness to your home?
happiness and pleasure that will extend throughout (the years to
come?by making your gift to the family a magnificent piano.
At our store you have the finest instruments made from
which to choose?pianos that are recognized the world over as the best?such as
The Steinway, The Weber, The Hartman,
The Wheelock, The Kimbal, The Standard,
The Stuyvesant, The Weser. The Hinze, The Hensel,
The Haines & Co., The Brewster, The Whitney.
Or, if you are hesitating to select a piano as your gift because no
member of your family possesses the ability to play, we suggest
Any one. no matter whether they understand music or not can play on the Pianola-Piano the most difficult musical com?
position ever written, and play it with all the expression and feeling which the composer intended. The Pianola is the player
which most closely approximates the perfection of the human touch.
The Pianola player attachment
is BUILT INTO several of the
best grade pianos. It is a PART
of the piano itself, but the front
may be closed, the pedals raised
and the lower part closed, and the
instrument used the same as an

The Individuality of the Piano
The piano occupies an important position in the scheme of home decoration.
The parlor or drawing-room is not complete unless it possesses a piano. The piano,
therefore, aside from its musical features, should receive your consideration as
means of beautifying your home.
Our large stook comprises a wide assortment of styles in the various woods
and finishes, so that the present decorations of the room and the furniture may be
matched in selecting the piano.
We urge an early selection, while stocks are complete.
Purchases made now held for Christmas delivery if so desired.
