The most important event in West

merged with the Soule Bros'. Failure
Soule Bros., old-established musical
instrument merchants, their stock,
after authority and direct order of
court, was taken over by C. E. Lucore,
the wholesale piano man and repre
sentative of some of the creditor man
ufacturers. Nearly all the inexpensive
pianos were quickly sold at 38$ Mor
rison, but the more costly kinds were
left on hand. There was no time to
lose. A quick turn was necessary and
we were able to get them in one lump,
so that we can sell them for almost
what they sold their medium and
cheaper priced pianos for. for we de
clined to take over any but the finest
instruments in the sale. All remain

going to go at Auction Wednesday, as
is being advertised in this Issue, but
the better makes and higher grade
pianos, the really much-to-be-desired
instruments, will be on sale at Eilers
Music House by 9 o'clock this morning.
In these two great sales at Eilers
Music House will be found pianos for
a great deal less than what the manu
facturers expected to get for same
when they billed them to their agents.
Some of them, oldest established
makes, time honored, time tried names,

for with the Eilers guarantee, and a
record of many years' fair dealing and
the high standing of the house, every
pianoless home can now feel sure
that the piano will be found in every
way satisfactory. Kor Eilers Music
House Is the money back Institution.
We also issue an exchange agree
ment so that for any reason, at any
time within two years, a customer can
exchange for another piano at the big
piano house, and all the money paid
will apply on the Instrument selected.
Eilers Music House has always been
noted for selling the best and highest
grade pianos manufactured. Their
enormous business enables them to sell
a piano of a higher grade for much
less money than the old-time method
dealers ask. Seventy-two per cent of
all the pianos shipped to the Coast are
sold b ythe Eilers houses. This leaves
only a very few for all the other deal
ers combined to sell. This fact itself
should have consideration, any think
ing business man or woman knows
that a large quantity of goods can ba
marketed for less per article than can
a small number. Thinking people
know that in buying in large quan
tities each article can be purchased for
less. Furthermore our Eilers Muslo
House guarantee is thoroughly depend
able and trustworthy in every way.
It is the only home institution of its
kind, and many years of successful
piano distribution has put it in the
lead of all the great National institu
tions". Whenever the opportunity pre
sents Eilers Music House is always
ready and anxious to arrange excep
tional values, and offers them to buy
ers at the lowest possible price con
sistent with quality.
We can honestly say that never in
the history of the Eilers Music House
have thoroughly reliable pianos been
sold at so lo wa price as during this
double combination event.
Everyone knows that the export,
business haa practically been at a
standstill; every manufacturer, espe
cially of musical instruments, has been
at his wits' end to know what to do
with his surplus stock, that Is why the
manufacturers' representatives, Ells

are now in charge of this greatest of
all Portland piano sales. Remember
these pianos are all new, guaranteed.
