made necessary by the recent death of our President,
the present stock of merchandise. on hand is to be sold

rived at without converting it into cash or interest
bearing customers' contracts.
Just as quickly as it can possibly be done everything belonging to Eilers Piano

been equalled before the country over, East or West, North or South.
