Another proof of the unusual pro*pt- j
rity of Tucson at tbe present time, is
the fact of a firm stopping in a large
cons gnment of strictly standard piam s ;
to tw* sol.l at a special sale to last only .
one week That certainly shows that!
this firm has confidence in Tucson. We
have reference to the well known firm
of The /-diner Piano Co., who yesterday
received two carloads of pianos com
prising such renowned makes ns the
Steak-Krakaner, Story & < lark and
other popular makes. They are going
to offer these piano* at greatly reduced
prices and anyone that is at all consi
dering purchasing a piano should sure
|y call on them and look over their
stork. The offers that they will make
on their easy payment plan, will allow
anyone to ow n a piano. Think of pav
ing on a piano and Indore long owning
it. There is no reason why every home
in Tucson should not have a line piano
;U the prices and terms offered by tins
firm. The public should remember
that this site will last only one week
and those that wish to take advantage
of the unusual low prieeaand easy terms
offered in tbi« sale should rail at once,
so as to get Die Vest selection.
