Piano manufacturers throughout the

entire overproduction to a syndicate
of huge distributors, The Bennett Co.
of Omaha being one of the largest of
Mr. Robinson, acting for The Ben
nett Co., has purchased as Bennett's
share or the "Syndicate Buy," 1,000
new pianos, and, with a shrewd busi
ness ability fostered by years of ex
perience Mr. Robinson has purchased
these low enough to enable The Ben
nett Co. to resell them at prices that
will cause a furore.
Brand new, full sized, absolutely per
fect pianos of excellent make will be
offered at as low as $124, but, owing
to the exceedingly close margin, these
must be sold for cash. (The regular
lines carried by The Bennett Co., how
ever, will be sold on very easy pay
ments just as heretofore.)
Bennett's own stock of "used" in
struments will go for a proverbial
"song" of a price, first-class upright
pianos being offered at $88 and used
organs as low as $12.
Those addressing a request to The
Bennett Co., 16th & Harney Sts,
Omaha, Neb., will receive circulars
naming and pricing all of the pianos,
etc., tOvbe sold at cost and less for

ERUPTION COVERED BODY
Three years ago this winter I had
a breaking out that covered my whole
body. It itched so it seemed as if I
should go crazy. It first came out In
little pimples on my back and spread
till it covered my whole body and
limbs down to my knees, also my arms
down to my elbows. Where I
scratched it made sores, and the ter
rible itching and burning kept me
from sleeping. I tried several reme
dies all to no purpose. Then I con
cluded to try the Cutlcura Remedies. I
used the Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura
Ointment, also the Resolvent, for
about four months, and they com
pletely cured me of eczema. I have
had no return of the disease since. I
never had a good night's rest after the
skin eruption first broke out till I com
menced using the Cutlcura Soap and
Ointment I had only used them a
few days before I could see they were
beginning to heal, and the terrible
Itching was gone.
"Those that lived in the house at
the time know how I suffered, and
how the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment
cured me. I never take a bath with
out using the Cutlcura Soap, and I
do not believe there are better rem
edies for any skin disease than the
Cutlcura Soap and Ointment.' (Signed)
