To &e People of Josephine County
No doubt you have already heard it rumored that a large independent
p,ano company intended to open a permanent store in Grants Pass We
have already opened a store in Southern Oregon-we refer to our magnificent
store in your sister city, Medford. We intend to operate the two stores
jointly-neither is the branch house of the other, and our prices always the
lowest, will be uniform.
We will have much to say regarding the new system of piano sellina we
intend to introduce among you. How we are able to purchase for cash
from a large wholesaler right here on the Coast the greatest assortment' of
high-grade pianos ever controlled by any one house in any territory in the
United States. How we are able to sell these pianos at prices which accord
vvith the low expenses we are under here. We will explain to you how
every time you purchase an instrument from any branch of a city house you
are contributing to the high expenses that city house is under; but in this we
desire to give you an outline of our great advertising plan for all the people
of Josephine and Jackson Counties. " Do not allow any doubt in your mind
as to its genuineness.
