Distinction in
Any Home
A piano Is a mark of distinction
In any home. And the better the
piano, the better the impression
It creates. The Kurtzman is one
of the oldest and best known
1 pianos made today. It is recognized
i the world over by musicians of
critical judgment as an instrument
of perfect workmanship, and
a true, sweet singing tone that cannot
be surpassed no matter what
price you pay. So reliable la It,
and so ideally perfect for accompaniments
and solo work that many
of the world's greatest artists will
have no other instrument in their
concert work.
We have one of these wonderful
store, and invite you to come in anc
ornament to the house of the royal,
equaled only by its superb quality c
piano in a lifetime if you buy wi
piano that will last longer than the
piano that will improve with the yet
proven best by every tost.

The Fascination of
New Hats
It is a season of "towering" fashions, from
the Chinese-inspired hats with their pagoda-like
crowns to the smaller hats with crowns made of
folds of silk or ribbon, the dominant tendency is
toward height in crowns.
Crowns are large and brims ar extremely
broad or quite diminutive.
It is a season of quiet, richly beautiful hats, with much velvet,
hatters' plush and fine-textured felts. Taupes, soft deeptoned
grays, many rich browns, beautiful rose and dark reds
give a hint of the colors Paris approves. All together it is the
authoritative, definite showing of the Autumn and Winter millinery
fashions and prices as usual are kept down to within the
moderate range. Now is the best time to make selections
while the collection is replete.
