A TERRIBLE RUSH
TWENTJ.5KVEN PIANO 8ALKS IN
The. Citizens of The Dallas Have the
Same Opportunity.--Will They
A perfect jam would be putting it
inild, in the great rush for pianos at the
manufacturer's wholesale eale of the D.
S.Johnston stock of pianos at 935 C street
now being retailed by the manufact
urer's. Twenty-seven piano sales yesterday
was the exact number made up to 9:30
in the evening, and at which time the
etore was still crowded with customers.
Taken from the cashier's books or
sales slips on file for the day, we checked
off the following purchasers of "Kim
ball" pianos alone:
H. Allan, M. D., 817 South Eleventh
S. J. Maxwell, eecretary-vice-presi-dent
Northern Pacific railway.
H. E. Knox, chief Enginerr, T. R. &

Mr. C S. Torkelson, architect.
F. M. Leibfried, deputy county audi
tor. Miss Mae Browne, teacher, Dayton,
Wm. Ives, feed and wood dealer.
, Jas. McCormick, Gross Bros. Co.
Besides these, there were four others
for brithday or anniversary presents
which names ,by request are withheld
The total amount of sales for the day
amounted to $6709 over one-third cash,
which shows that Tacoma is strictly "in
it." and that the City of Destiny has
lots of idle cash to invest, when favorable
opportunities present themselves.
At the rate pianos were taken jester
dy, the whole stock cf 125 or more in
etruments will be disposed of this week
It is astonishing what bargains are being
had at this sale. Tacoma Ledger.
The above article from the Tacoma
Ledger gives some idea of the volume of
business the Kimball Co. are doing on
the Pacific coast, and shows the class of
people who buy Kimball pianos and
organs. This also explains why small
dealers, agents and sub-agents are in
such a etate of excitement. When you
get a pig by the ear he is eure to squeal
Kimball Co. have got him by the ear.
and he is squealing.
If you want tbe fineBt piano or organ
that money; brains and experience can
build, one that is used and endorsed by
the leading musicians of the day, call
and see us and we will fix you out with
one at manufacturer's wholesale price
, plus expenses of laying them down here,
which is less than agents and sab-agents
have been asking you for second class in
etruments. If it don't suit you to pay
cash we will accept a caish payment
down and you can pay ti.e balance
monthly or quarterly. If you want to
know anything about us, go to your
banker. The banks of the United States
are our reference.

A severe rheumatic pain in the left
shoulder had troubled Mr. J. H. Loper,
a well known druggist of Des Moines,
Iowa, fo? six months. At times the
pain was so severe that he could not lift
anything. With all he could do he
could not get rid of it until he applied
Chamberlain.s Pain Balm. "I only
made three applications of it," he says,
and have since been free from" all pain."

A GROSS INSULT.
To The Intellig-eaee of The Cliraen of
Ihe article published over tbe signa
tures of I. C. Nickelseu and E. Jacubsen
& Co., local pianos and orgau agents of
The Dalles is a tissue of lalseiioud from
start to finish and is an insult to the in
telligence of musical public and tbe cit
izens of The Dalles. Whv? Becauje in
publishing such an article these local
agents are assuming that the musicians
and citizens of The Dalles are a lot of
ignoramuses and that they do nut know
the great Kin, ball Co. of Chicago, and
that they haven't sufficient intelligence
to recognize a fine piano when they see
one. Don't measure other peoples
wheat with your own bushels "bruthers-in-aroas."
Kerne tuber that "Fools rush
in wheie angels fear to tread."
Now for a few more culd facts nuts like
those of a few days ago, which you have
failed to crack. The Kimball piano and
organ are handled by reliable dealers
ers in Minneapolis, Butte, Tacoma,
Salt Lake, Denver, Omaha, Los Angeles
and Sacramento. The Kimball Co.
have opened a house in the Marquam
building in Portland, under my manage
ment, and handle the trade of Oregon
itself. Why? Because there is no
dealer, firm or corporation in the music
business in the state of Oregon with
sufficient capital to handle the Kimball,
and the Kimball Co. were literally forced
to open a house in Portland, or let this
trade go to seed. We have no agents,
and a dealeror firm who wants to handle
tbe Kimball have to buy them outrignt.
The Kimball is too well known for us to
ship them out to agents to be paid for
when sold. Now then, if you want to
compete with the Kimball, bring
on your Steinway, Weber, Knabe or
Chickering and we will place our Kim
ball alongside of it and compete with it
anywhere and at any time, in tone,
touch, 'material, construction, finish,
durability and (price. Bring on some
first class, high grade piano or shut up.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in alt its stages, and that is
Catarrh. Hall's Cure is the only posi
tive cute known to the medical frater
nity. Catarrh being a constitutional
disease, requires a constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken in
ternally, acting directly upon the blood
and 'mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and as
sisting nature in doing its work. Tbe

curatire powers, that they offer One
Hundred Dollars for any case that ' it
fails to cure. Send for list of teetimo

Richmond, Vi., Oot. 2, 18M.
Indiana Mcyets Co., Indianapolit, Tnd.:
Gbntlemkn The Waverley Scorch-r and Be'le came to hand
yesterday. We are afraid you have sent vi the high-priced whrei
bv mistake. You can't mean to tvll us that this wheel retails for
i 86? We mnst say that it it, without ezo ption, the prettiest wheel
we have ever (era, and, moreover, we have faith in it, although it
weighs only 22 lbs., for of all Waverleys we bave sold this year and
last (and you know that is a right rood number!, we have never
had a single frame nor fork broken, either from accident or defect,
and that is more than we can say uf any other wheel, however
high grade, so called, that we sell. We congratulate ourselves
every day that we are the Waverley agrnts.
