Dow, Kib War With Japan Is not probable, but yon are likely to have war with your wife or daughter if yon do not boy her that long promised piano. Nothing shows culture and refinement in a home like t piano. Home is what yon make it, and if you have no entertainmeat for your children at home you must expect them to seek it elsewhere; so do not blame the children, as the fault is all your own. Let us place a piano in your home on trial and see how it brightens up the household; also see how your, children will bring their company to their home for entertziv ment instead of seeking it elsewhere. We have over 2$ different makes of pianos to select from, and guarantee yon a considerable saving on any piano yon may want. Yours very truly, J, W. Grantham.
