important piano dealer in America, during the Piano Dealers' Convention held
at Richmond, Va., during May of this year.
If you are EVER going to buy a PIANP

"Exposition" Pianos SHOULD
command a PREMIUfl, but
are REDUCED instead!
Many of the pianos included in this immense July Sale, were ex
hibited ot the National Piano Dealers' Association Convention at
Richmond, Va., on May last.
Every instrument exhibited there was specially made; specially
designed; specially carved and polished; equipped with special actions
and wrought froni specially seasoned woods. The makers were rival
ing one another to exhibit the best the finest ever made.
Such instruments you may be assured, cost MORE and are
WORTH more than ordinary taken-from-stock pianos, but, in place
of charging more, we are going to sell them at HUGE discounts for
we purchased them that way from the makers. Chances like this come
SELDOM and Quantities are ALWAYS limited when they DO come.
Receive LARGEST allowance
ever made on your OLD
Pianos, Organs, etc.
Don't imagine you are getting enjoyment out of that old piano or
organ of yours, for you are NOT. Your children growing up, are
worthy of BETTER instruments you NOW have a chance to supply
them with the world's best at comparatively trifling prices.
And we will take that OLD piano or organ in trade on one of
these newer "exhibit" pianos we will, during this special July Sale,
allow you the LARGEST amount a dealer has EVER offered you on
the instruments you turn in as part payment.
And the terms will be adjusted to your needs.
Have a heart to heart talk with our two special district represen
tatives; see Mrs. Wiker, our resident manager; you never have, never,
will have, a btjtyer "piano chance. " c
Hessrs. C. C. Knapton and J. D. Horton, Special District Sales Hanagers for the chain of Bennett Co. Piano
Houses, will lend assistance during this July selling of Pianos a gala sales event that will overtop anything of
the kind ever offered in Alliance. Mrs. Wiker, our resident manager, advises immediate action upon your
part, if you are considering the'purchase of a Piano.
