" Do any of our subscribers wish to
know where to purchase a really first-class
Cabinet Organ ? Wo havo not tho slight
est hesitation in saying go to tho Simmons
& Clough Organ Co., Nos. 15, 17 and 19,
Miami avenue, Detroit.
" Wo are not surprised to learn thfl fact
of which wo aro recently informed, that
this sterling Instrument took tho first
premium 'for extraordinary clearness and
purity of tone,' over the Estoy Organ at
the Agricultural Fair at Lowell last Oc
tober. To surpass tho Estey is praiso
enough for most organs, but our own
proferonco for the Simmons & Clough In
strument was settled somo time ago, on
tho merits of tho case. Wo huvo heard
tho Simmons & Clough Organ. It speaks
From the Fon du Lac Reporter.
"Wo enw nnd beard ono of thoso Com
bination Organs manufactured by Sim
mons, Clough & Co., of Detroit, nud wo
unhesitatingly pronounco It tho finest
toned Rood Organ wo havo had tho
pleasure of listening to.
This organ is constructed with tubes
through which tho tono passes, giving it
that rich flute or pipo organ tono not
found in nny other, and showing nono of
tho reedy metallic tono so common in reed
instruments. Wo think this will revolu
tionize tho reed instruments adding much
In tono with little additional expense."
Equal to and superior to many of tho
higher priced organs. Rushvllle, (Ills.)
From the Ionia Sentinel. (Report of the
I-air at Ionia, Mich., lor October, 1871.)
"Organs were tho principle musical in-
trumouts represented. G. W. Tucker
showed tho well known Mason & Humlln
Organ ; J. II. Von Ness, tho " Union,"
whilo J. W. Gardner sang tho praiso of
tho " American."
" Don Jones took tho first premium on
the Simmons & Clough Cabinet Orcan
which was sold on tho ground to Prof.
From the Weekly Independent, Clyde, (.
"I he most talented musicians of the
day, both amateur und professional, testi
fy to their superiority, and wherever ex
hibit! thoy givo tin, best of satisfaction.
Tbsfe 1 no instrument madu that exceeds
thffi In tone, durability nnd flninh."
From the W'l. cousin Times.
"Th Uit nnd grandest thing wo havo
uin in the way nf a Musical Instrument for
what it purports to ho tho combination it
nfl'urds, its scope, volume and power,
sweetness ol tone, delicacy of touch,
wonderful imitations, and tho low prico
olfercd at, is the New Combination Orguu
manufactured by Simmons, Clough & Co,
It must boj seon to bo appreciated, and
when onco heard cannot but impress tho
most casual observer with its great merit
" Wo hold this Instrument In the high

Organ for tho uso of church service, in
