OXE PRICE PIANO HOUSE.
The Talk of the Town. One of the Musical Events of the Season. When we announced our intention of giving a complimen tary recital at the Columbia Theater we had no idea that there would he such a great demand for seats. Convention Hall would hardly have accommodated the crowds anxious to come and hear that most wonderful of all Piano Players? TMI We clearly demonstrated its worth oyer n.nd above all other "players;" the Cecilian has six points of superiority, namely: 1. It is easiest to pump. 2. It has a non-mechanical touch. 3. One Ins independent control of bass nnd treble. 4. Instant changes from fortissimo to pianissimo or vice versa are possible. 5. The operator can emphasize any note. 6. The "player" is covered by an absolute warranty for five years. As an accompanist, Miss Bridewell, the prima donna con tralto of the Metropolitan Opera Company, who assisted at the recital, sang a varied program?one calculated to test the abilities of a human accompanist. In all of her numbers, from the sweet little "Lullaby" to the magnificent and dramatic aria from "Sam son and Delilah," the "Cecilian" accompaniment was delightful. ITS MANIPULATION TS SIMPLE AND IT RESPONDS TO YOUR MOODS AS QUICKLY AS THOUGHT. As a Piano Player per se it has no equal. Expression is limited only by the intelli gence and temperament of the operator. A Beethoven Sonata can be rendered as beautifully as a lighter modern composition. With its double tracker board a catalogue of over 17.000 numbers is at your disposal. The master minds in music are there?even as the rag-time and coon songs of the day. If you have an idle piano or even if vou are proficient in technique the "Cecilian" will interest you. COME DOWN AND HEAR IT. The CedHaim Sells for $250.00 On Monthly Payments, or $225 Cash. The use of the library costs $20 per year, at the end of which time we give you $20 worth ot music. DROOP'S MUSIC HOD Steinway amd Otlher Leading Pianos, 923 925 Peooa0 Avemnuie.
