We are now in a better position to sell Pianos at ridiculously low prices than ever before! Our business has grown so large during thc past few months that we *arc compcllcd to seek largcr quarters. But prior to vacat ing our present location, we have decided to go on record and place our entire stock of Pianos and Organs at prices that will tempt the most economical buyer. Surely you cannot afford to miss this Money-Saving Sale! For an opportunity knocks on your door but once in a lifetime. Come early and be convinced that our prices are positively the lowest yet ever heard of. Just think, new Pianos from $145.00 up! Can you buy a new Piano for $145.00 from any dealer in this city or any other city? NO, YOU CAN NOT! We answer the question. They would rather sell you the same grade Piano for $275.00 or $300.00, because their expenses are large?they have many agents who must receive from 15 to 20 per cent. commission on a sale. The manager receives from $5,000 to $10,000 per annum salary. Now figure it over yourself. Can they sell you a Piano for a price such as we ask? We have no agents, we have 110 managers, we do not pay $5,000 per annum rent, nor do we ever intend to pay that much. Now you can readily understand why our prices are about half what the large dealer asks for his Pianos. Look at the "For Sale" column for bargains. That is the place where you ,will find bargains that are Incomparable. Get the habit?"Talk with Crafts," and make money by saving it. Our usual easy payments will prevail during this sale. AU of the best makes will share alike, prices slashed! Crafts Piano Co, "Tho Little Store Around the Corner" 214 Nort;h Fifth Street. OPEN EVENINGS.
