Organs and Pianos
Do you want an Organ or Piano? Don't buy one
under any circumstances until you call and see what I
can do for you. The very best class of our people are
In fact everybody would buy it if they were informed of its merits. It is your duty to
buy the best Organ for the price. I claim in my KINDERGARTEN ORGAN to have
the best and I will prove it, if given a chance. I will do more than sell you the best
Organ, I will duplicate any price and terms you may have offered to you. Remember!
another thing, you will not only save money by selecting the KINDERGARTEN OR
GAN but you get the best Organ. Again, if you buy from me, you will save much an
noyance by collectors and you will avoid misunderstandings?law suits. It will be too
late to amend after you have bought. Many people are persuaded to allow an Organ to
be left at their home on trial and then are induced to buy it. Do you not know that
you are paying the expense? You are hypnotized, and made to believe that you are
being befriended and given special inducements. Let me tell you, beware, for it is
not so. No man can do better for you than your home dealer, who has less expense
than any transient salesman. If you want an Organ in your home on trial all you have
to do is to write or send to yourdealer for it. Don't be caught with the "let me
leave it at your house for awhile?for a night, or a day;" that leaving it is the
opening Wedge, and IT HAS SPLIT many happy homes. Go to your dealer, who
is always with you, and select your Organ or Piano.
Am I not right in my views? I know that I am. I know many good people
have regretted buying from transient men, and I know there are people who are
pleased with their purchases, yet, who knows but they might have done better?
The traveling men may be all right, and many of them are, but the very best salesman
cannot do as well for you as a man selling his own goods. The way to do this is, buy
from your home dealers. See your dealer before you allow an instrument to be placed
in your home. I will promise to sell you
A Better Organ and on Easier Terms.
Don't forget. Watch, or before you know it, you will be a victim. You may not know
much about an Organ or Piano, then it is the more necessary that you should go to your
nearest home dealer, who assumes the responsibility.
Call, or write for prices and terms.

THE PIANO AND ORGAN MAN
