Demand for Good Goods Common to All Dealers all over America tell the same story—buyers of every class de mand the very best articles their money will ljuy. To gratify this de sire when buying a piano people go to Ellers Piano House. There, high quality and low price go hand In hand. The quality Is guaran teed by the names on the pianos they handle—such magnificent instruments as the grand old Chickering, the splen did Weber, George Steck, Hazelton, Crown, Kimball, Hobart M. Cable, Marshall A Wendell, Bailey and a dozen others. The great volume of their business la responsible for the low prices. You see. It stands to reason that a house selling over 6.000 pianos In a year, gets the lowest cash prices at the factory. That's plain, Isn't It? Then, freight rates on this great number, coming often In trainload lots, average nothing like as high as on local ship ments. Again, a very small margin of profit on this number of Instrument» leaves a handsome profit. When dealing with Ellers Plane House you are doing business with a house whose honor and Integrity are as solid as the Rock of Gibralter. They positively guarantee the quality ef every piano to be high and the price to be the lowest reasonable. Further, they will cheerfully refund your money if you are not perfectly satisfied with your Instrument. Pianos are sold on the eastest of terms. Prices run fro 1 ® $161) to $1,500.
