Piano Secrets
The fact that we can furnish a
good Piano at a very low price, has
given us one of the most successful
week's business since starting here.
The secret of our success will be
largely in the amount of confidence
you can have in us. There will be
no misrepresentations to any in re
gard to our Pianos. But a certain
amount of profit placed on our
goods and no more.
