Significance of Price
It is easy te write a pricetag of such large
figures that it will suggest excellent piano
value but it is a very different matter te
produce a piano that will justify such a
pricetag. Steinway prices arc actually
less than these of some inferior pianos,
because Steinway factory methods pro
vide production of the world's finest
pianos at minimum ' cost, and because
Steinway business policy will net permit
pricing beyond legitimate profits. Exces
sive pricing is used te cover various dis
counts, commissions te persons recom
mending the ever-priced pianos, and
unreasonable allowances for old pianos
three things never tolerated in a Steinway
house. Unc price te everyone
SIX BOTTLES OF HEALTH.
T Innrf ado sonic one described a case
JLN Tureck water as "six bottles of health."
There is nothing fanciful about thin description.
Pureck water is mere than just a thirst quencher. It
invigorates the man or woman who drinks it because
it absorbs the impurities of the body and carries them
away. Pureck is scientifically distilled charged
with oxygen nnd delivered in scaled, sterilized bottles.
Let your drinking water always he Pureck. Tt is
mere than a thirst quencher and is inexpensive.
