PIANOS AND ORGANS ! - EASY TERMS !
In buying a Piano or Organ many persons have the idea that they
must pay all cash. There are thousands of families who have an income
of fifty to one hundred dollars per month, who can easily spare from five
to ten dollars of it and scarcely miss it. To all such we would say, do
not wait to lay up enough to pay for an instrument before buying, but
see or write us at once for our terms. We will satisfy you that we are
giving easier terms than any Music House in the United States.
