Joseph flnnCOCk SOOtl '_'ot hold of the

that It was possible to imitate the

middle of tho nineteenth century, and
so few pieces of coppor tolled plate
?were made aller that time that they
need not concern tho collector. Electro

I WILL POSITIVELY <
Save You Misch Money on :
And make terms to suit your convenience, I sell high-grade Pianos, prize
winners at ail of the great expositions. 1 do not haul Pianos
around, peddle them, and leave them on trial. My
companies are reliable and are able to
Make Good Every Piano.
This peddling <>f Pianos is very expensive and the pur< has er pays the expense
every time. It is strange that sensible people will buy thai way.
Don't you know if you have a Piano ordered direi t
from the factory, it can be sold <>,i a
snorter profit? It's injurious to
Pull and Haul Pianos
About. It loosens them and in a short time they will be "broken down." You
can't do better anywhere. 1 can sell NEW UPRIGHT PIANOS
From $150 to $750
1 can show you many makes of Player Pianos, and will give you the lowest
prices and satifactory terms. Let tne save you money.
