\ KOHLER &, CAMPBELL, MAKERS
OF PIANOS, PRESENT OPPOR
TUNITY TO SAVE MONEY.
- This morning, on another page,
there appears in The Missoullan a
large advertisement of the Orvis Music
house which atntunces a unique and
generous plan the Kohler & Campbell
piano factory has hit-upon to make a
unusually dull season a lively one.
The plan presents to ten homes the
opportunity to obtain-one ofthe excel
lent instruments manufactured by this
company at a bona fide price 'reduc
tion of a hundred dollars. The reason
given for the price reduction is very
commonplace and honest. The factory
but tells the public that March is
usually rather dull in piano circles,
and that as it desires 'to keep all em
ployes busy and the shop in full run
ning commission, it is willing to sac
rifice its profits to obtain the desired
effect. As the dull season is not of
long duration the proposition will he
open but 30 days. only ten pianos will
be ~qld under this plan.
"We received three of these I'anos
toddly," said J. M. Orvis yesterday.
"They are beauties and of regulation
Kohler & Campbell excellence. We
have been selling this instrument for
many years in western Montana, and
there are a great many people wio are
sell' pleased they purchased one of
this maker's instruments. They are
wonderfully well constructed awIl the
manufacturer guarantees them un
qualifiedly for ten years. And hack
of this .sterling guarantee stands the
integrity of this music concern.
Mr. Orvis has placed one of the in
struments in the store window, and
the sale will start this morning, which
will permit ten persons to purchase
pianos at great saving. The idea is
one which will make itself imme
diately popular, and ten homes will
surely have new pianos within thirty
