winners at all of the great expositions. I do not haul Pianos
around, peddle them, and leave them on trial. My

Make Good Every Piano.
This peddling of Pianos is very expensive and the purchaser pays the expense
every time. It is strange that sensible people will buy that way.
Don't you know if you have a Piano ordered direct
from the factory, it can be sold on a
shorter profit? It's injurious to
