Mr. J. B. Finney wanted to buy a
piano , and after considering the claims
of the different makes made a trip to
Omahn and investigated the many so-
called bargains came away dissatisfied.
On his way home stopped of ! at Norfolk ,
Nov. 8 , called at Johnson's Furniture
store and inside of five minutes after ho
knew Mr. Johnson's price had placed
an order for one of his famous Ghicker-
ings. The'pinno ' was shipped from
Boston on the 12th , was placed in Mr.
Fiuney's residence at Ainsworth Mon
day morning. Mr. Johnson spent yes
terday in O'Neill , Atkinson and Long
Pine , closing sales for two more , and
lias another in transit to Randolph , sold
to a customer who went through the
same experience as Mr. Finuoy. He
has sold over 100 of these beautiful In
struments to parties who never saw the
instrument they bought until the day it
was delivered , who paid for them in
cash "not notes or installments" in
from 3 to 0 hours after the instruments
were placed , and who have never made ,
or had any cause for complaint. It's a
record without parallel and speaks "vol
umes" in behalf of the Chickorings ,
"proves that it pays to buy the best , " as
well as fully sustaining Mr. Johnson's
reputation of handling "the best goods
that rnopey will buy" at prices you can-
opt dpplicato elsewhere.
