I am about to hare some alterations
and improvements made in my store,
which will include the putting in of
an entire new floor and renewing the
ceiling. To do this will necessitate
the tearing up of the old floor, the
removal of otlice platform, safe, coun
ters, side cases, partition, furnace,
etc. I have on hand a very large
stock of pianos and organs, covering
nearlv every square foot of space on
two floors. It would be impossible
to make our . alterations with our
present stock on hand without
scratching and marring the instru
ments, which Would necessitate their
lieing sold as damaged and second
hand gods at a great sacrifice on
Therefore, in order to red ace the
stock mid do it quickly. I have con
cluded to offer the entire stock at fac
tory cost for one week only. I have
been in Kock Island for 18 "years and
have always done business i"u the reg
ular wav. The only kh-c'i:iI sale I
ever hal here was afiout a year ago,
when I sold the goods from my branch
house. The prices and indiicuments
offered then were such that enabled
me to dispose of 100 instruments in
10 days. Now. in order to be consist
ent and treat all my patrons alike I
propose to make the prices ami terms
the same as in inv great sale in April,
I have on hand about 40 pianos and
20 organs. They are the same Iit of
goods I have sold in the tri-citfe ihjr
ing the last 1J years, and they , iin
prisc u half do.cn well known iud
time-tried makes, and every instru
ment offered at the sale will be fully
warranted for five years.
I cannot here quote prices ou all
the instruments in my stock,-but as a
sample we will sell beautiful new i jw
right pianos in all the fanc,. taistS,
such as sell in the' regular- wv at
J50 to 27.5, for 1177 1:13,1 l4C
I6ti to 1N7.
Klegant standard make full sized
Cabinet (irand pianos that are war
ranted to last a life time will be
offered in this saie at 178 to $217.
These pianos retail everywhere from
:oo to :17..
The very highest grade Cabinet
(iraud pianos that sell every where at
:(7.r to foot) will go at this sale at
21S, 223. f-MS to t-"J. Brand new
7.5 to f 12. organs will be offered at
:J7. t8. to SliK.
The sale will begin Monday, nioriij

The terms of the sale will Iks as fid
lows: $2." cash down on all pianos
