After months of careful consideration we have de
cided to install a Piano Department and thus make liter
ally true our slogan of "Everything to Furnish Homes,
Churches and Schools." ,
Very careful consideration of the numerous makes
available led us to the decision to represent the time
honored house of Chickering of Boston and of Haines
Bros, of New York in Grands, Uprights and Player
Pianos. In these we found a splendid spirit of progres
siveness and extraordinary musical excellence.
