Boaarrls says that since coming to
America the Greeks have been taught
' modern methods In fruit raising nnd ac

be opened to them.

A party of naval officers were on s
special car coming from a Philadelphia
wedding. Thay were In the glory of full
dress uniform. At a Junotlon the train
stopped,-) wjng to some minor-accident,
and the officers, manlike, dismounted to
look at the machinery and find out what
was wrong. Just then a whistle blew and
several hundred girls trooped out of a
big factory near the tracks. Of course
they spied the glittering group of man
and gathered In groups, laughing with
flirtatious Intentions which the officers
were not slow In responding.
But soon the train began to move and
the men entered waving farewellg. Pay
master Simpson, one of the Apollo of
the navy, wns the tact man to mount the
btep. Ho ralsel his hat gallantly and
stood smiling. In one of his best poses.
Whrn the car vas well on the way, one
of the girls shouted to him, "Jih, there,
Charlie 1 I choose you for the tunnel!"
Why should you why should any one, in fact, rent a piano?
A rental piano is, as a rule, a second hand piano- a cheap
instrument usually anything, in truth, that will stay half-way
For the use of such an instrument you will have to pay
3, 4 or 5 dollars a month, as the case may be, according to
the condition of the instrument. After you have rented the
piano for months and months, and sometimes for years, the
piano goes back to the piano man.
To be rented over again to someone else. The piano man now has
not only the rental you paid him, but the piano as well.
Right here is a place for many a person hereabouts to practice thrift:
Stop renting a piano. Start
Our big inaugural club offers the opportunity and such
an opportunity as you have never had before.
At the very outset you start in a thrifty way. You save 92
dollars and 50 cents in the initial cost of the piano, as you get a
piano for257dollarsand50cents thatusually sells for 350dollars.
Next, the terms.
You do not have to pay more to own one of these splendid new pianos
than you have to pay to rent a second hand one 5 dollars cash, and then 1
dollar and 25 cents a week.
And by joining the club while you are paying, you are owning.
Every week you come in to pay you are laying up 1 dollar and 25 cents
for yourself towards your own permanent ownership of a beautiful, durable
and praiseworthy piano.
Yes we know that the terms for renting a piano have their advantages.
We know that they have in many an instance been a necessity.
But that was before we opened this big inaugural club.
Now we say and say it boldly that no one can afford to rent a piano,
when, by becoming a member of the 500 club, buying a piano is attended by
so many advantages and so much ease.
'Phone in your application. Do it tomorrow. Then the first day you
are down town you may come in and make your selection.
And if a thirty-days' trial discloses that you have made a wrong move
we will give you your money back.
What more can we do than this?
