Nowa Word AboutOur Pianos
THE LESTER PIANO COMPANY, makers of thc Les?
ter Piano, is backed by a capital of $2,500,000. Wc bavc been
making tbe LESTER PIANO over a quarter of a century.
It is a strictly high-grade, artistic instrument, and is recog?
nized tbe country over as one of tbe very few really artistic
Pianos. Our method of advertising our Pianos is a little dif?
ferent from most Piano manufacturers. Instead of paying
thousands of dollars per year to expensive magazine adver?
tising and thousands of dollars per year for expensive Piano
stores, wc reach thc public in a dircct manncr. cutting out all
of this uselcss cxpensc. In other words, after thc finished
product leaves our faetory it is shipped to our faetory sam?
ple wareronms, and sold to you at lhe actual faetory price,
thcreby saving you from $100 to $175 on a Piano.
Our Baby Contest will close Tuesday, May 14, 1907, at 6 P. M. All replies must
be in by that hour or they will not be considered.
Be Very careful about writing your name and address. Now get busy.
