wish every person in the United States to know
that the line of pianos they manufacture-the
Baldwin, Elliugton, Hamilton, Howard and
Valley Gem—simply cannot be beat, for they

in the piano industry. No other American
manufacturer has ever received the official recog

product. With a desire, we might add, to in
delibly impress these facts upon the minds of
every one, we have decided to submit the fol
