grand and glorious occasion for the old
soldiers who marched and fought and
endured th hardships of war 40 years
ago. The ranks are noticeably growing

which have, been the crowning feature
of previous encampments. But their en
thusiasm has not been dimmed and the
few surviving great war generals who are
te be present will be received with the
same rpund .of hearty cheers as In daya
Of yore, when the veterans were more
vigorous as well as more numerous.
The arrangements for the entertain
ment of the great crowd of visitors are
as nearly perfect aa can be attained. The
programme will be formally Inaugurated
tomorrow, when patriotic services will be
held In the various churches. At the

There is treat 'safety In selllnz a
large number of pianos.
But the greatest safety Is I n keeping
the larger number of pianos that hava
the endorsement of the piano trade
and of the best musicians. This In
sures large sales. It keeps them going.
And that Is why pianos are always
going from our - house. ? We keep a
large number of the best pianos made
and that is what the public wants. '
No names In the whole piano firma
ment shine with more brilliancy than
the famous" Kimball of Chicago,' the'
Chlckering of Boston and the Weber
of New Yorkv sin tone and action
which are the first considerations la
a p'ano, each pne Is perfect. ' And in
make, finish and appearance, they
ara superb.
Added to these, we carry the Decker;
the Vose, the Hobart M. Cable, th
many toned Crown, Milton the Weser

as number go, we are safe, and so far
as qualities and -price goywe -.can
