TELEPHONE AT THE BARN.
There was an old woman of moderate means
Who'd a bright little daughter as ever was seen,
A PIANO they needed, but money was low
So to MASON BROS., the old dame did go,
And for Ten Dollars down and a small monthly rate
She bought a piano that proved to be great,
If you need a Piano don't wait to pay cash
But buy on instalments, this way is not rash,
The Piano you get and its use from the start
And by paying spot cash you only save a small part.
Just drop us a line and we'll soon let you know
How cheap you can buy a fine PI AN O.
