The Stencil Pita.no Fraud.
Sheboygan. Wis., Apr. 22, 1907.
H. M. Cosh, Medford, Orq.
Replying to your favor of the 13th
insf., will say that we have hereto
fore appointed you sole ageut in
Southern Oregon and wish to men
tion the fact once more that yon
are the only dealer in the south
ern part of Oregon, thtt is entitled
to sell the "S. W. Miller" pianos
manufactured by the S. W. Miller
Piano Co. of Sheboygan, Wis. Any
other piano turned out or manu
factured or stenciled with a similar
name is a rank stencil and is not the
genuine "S. W. Miller" piano. In
order to protect the buying publio
from frauds of this kind, we wiBh to
say that all genuine "S. W.Miller"
pianos are manufactured at Sheboy
gan, Wis. and bave the name "S. W.
Miller, Cabinet Grand, Chicago and
Sheboygan" on .the fall board and alto
have the name "8. W. Miller Piano
Co." ckst iu the cast iron plate. Any
other piano with a similar name ex
cepting the Henry F. Miller piano
manufactured at Botaon, Mass., are
rank stenoils, and if we can trace
their origin, we will certainly bring
suit againt all such manufacturers
and dealers. The genuine "S. W.
Miller" piano is strictly high grade
and cannot be sold for a low price,
as there is no better piano manu
factured in tbe world.
We attach to this letter a caution
slip printed a year ago, when we had
similar trouble with some manu
facturers making stenoil S. W. Miller
piano and stenciling it Chicago.
These parties were promptly dealt
with and bad a rood suit on their
hands to settle, which they have done
and we have not been bothered with
these people but now it appears tbat
some other concern is making a simi
lar stenoil piano and stenoiling it
New York. It will be a very easy
matter for as to find out the origin of
any stenoil "S. W. Miller" pianos
and we will deal with them very
harshly, aa we will appeal this matter
to the Manufacturers Association and
ate sure that we can find out the
As far as any other dealer is con
cerned, who states that he can sell an

yon,cao, will say tnat it is absolutely
false, as no one in Southern Oregon

customers aright in this mattter and
