interests for the children, for the

elderly women. "Why not have a club
all their own?" No sooner was the
question asked than Mrs. Dryden got
busy and called a meeting. In re
sponse many women attended. Borne
were rich, some were poor, but all had
a common interest. They had passed
more than 50 milestones on the road
way of life and, although some people
regarded them as oldr they knew they
were young enough to have a good
time. And so they organized. Mrs.
Haynes was elected president and she
named the club.

many talents we have," said Mrs.
Haynes in commenting on the growth
of the club and its activities. "One
little woman who is 89 recites beauti

A Baby Grand Piano
: for $495
Cjf Because of the growing demand for an
inexpensive Grand Piano we had built for us
the ALDKICH BABY GRAND. The speci
fications agreed upon by the manufacturers
and ourselves are such that we can fully
commend its value as a musical instrument
and protect it with our guarantee. Three
features characterize ' this remarkable little
Grand: - '
1. It is a real Grand Piano it has -identically the same
keyboard as the larger and more expensive Grands. The
tone and action are good, and, cased in choice mahog
any, the architectural beauty is very pleasing.
2. It takes up no more room than the ordinary upright
when placed across a corner or in a nook. Upon request
(by phone or postal card) we will gladly mail (without
charge) a tissue paper pattern the exact size of this
little grand, which, when .spread out on the floor, will
show how conveniently it will fit your room.
3. It is priced no higher than a good upright $495. If
desired we will arrange very convenient payment terms.
If you have an upright piano we will make a generous
allowance on it toward this wonderful little grand.
I If you have always desired a Grand Piano in your home,
but felt that you could not afford it, or that your living-room
was too small to accommodate it, you can now gratify your
desire in the ALDRICH BABY GRAND.
