TUB lmii UMAflA, TLESDAY, NuV10MKER 5, 191'2.
There's a stillness
The labor of months is over
Empty freight cars are slowly roll
, over the rails away from Omaha.
Our planning is done
v Our work is finished
YOUR hour of action has come
YF And away back at the beginning of it'all is this idea:
F To, our mind the general love1 of music shown by the wide popularity of the piano is merely an instinctive reaching out of humanity for
the things that are beautiful true, '
So pianos should be made in sincerity. They should be sold in sincerity -whether the price be $257.50 or $5000.. . ' ,4
Cjp Such has been our purpose our intention. So we have considered it and so we have worked.
jf Thus it occurs that a great club of this kind unique and brilliant as it is only fittingly represents a service we are enabled to render
through tireless work and the power of money.
(TP This gigantic piano deal, with which to inaugurate the event of the naming of the Steinman &
if Son piano, was for Five Hundred Pianos. There is an average of 15 pianos to a car load.
This means, that it will take Thirty-three solid car loads of pianos to fill this single order or two
train loads. The freight alone will amount to over $4,578.75. One hundred and thirty-eight dol
lars and seventy-five cents a car load, or Two thousand two hundred and eighty-nine dollars for
each train. Five hundred pianos means something. Five hundred chairs of a kind may not mean
so much. Five hundred suits or hats, or this or that, may not mean such a big deal but 500 pianos
means something. In dollars and cents, it is a deal involving 175 to 180 thousand dollars, consid
ered at their selling value. It is a deal for as many pianos as lots of good piano firms will require
for two entire years' business. It is a deal that works more advantages to piano buyers, both in sav
ing money and in terms of purchase than any other piano deal of which we have any knowledge.
