the buying-power of the combined membership. It is like

Co-operation is the
Suppose all the actual cash in the United States were evenly
divided among its inhabitants hot a single individual would have
money enough to buy a round-trip ticket to San Francisco.
Co-operation the gathering of rrloney and securities on
the other hand, makes it possible to engage in large undertakings.
And the money as a whole works for all.
Credit is the financial name for co-operation faith in the
honesty of the individual guided and controlled by the benign
influences of civilized society.
You desire to buy a home. It isn't necessary to have in
hand the actual cash. The Building and Loan association finances
the deal, and you pay for the home in dribblets. In a few years, by
the enforced habit of systematic saving, you have paid for your
house created a unit of property or wealth, from sums that other
wise would have left nothing to show for them.
Any home can own a really good piano or player-piano.
No hardship worthy the name need be undergone. The Gimbel
Piano Clubs offer the way the easy payments fitted to save
dimes and quarters that you can bring yourself to save by simple
To t sure, a musical instrument can be purchased any
where on pa Ytial payments nearly all are sold that way ; instru
ments of evey make.
The Cfub idea adds to the convenience of partial payments
the power of co-operation. The membership becomes in effect
partner with us, and shares the advantage we gain by the tre
mendous buying power your co-operation gives and the lessened
selling costs when you really help in the work.
Nothing is required of you, but involuntarily the act of
your joining influences others to join.
A musical instrument of any desired grade or repute is
procurable at a lower price through a Gimbel Club than can be
obtained anywhere in the United States. That is the big fact on
which these co-operative clubs win success for you and us.
Will Cost You $250
the Harrington Player-Piano Will Cost You $425
As every member is in full co-operation with us in this club plan
We Will Deliver the Instrument Without A Penny of Advance Payment
Those who know the advantage of the Gimbel Club Plan
know how short-sighted any one is to hold back, fearing to enter an
engagement running over such a long period because
1. If club member, having kept up payments, dies, the
family keeps the Piano or Player-Piano without having
another cent to pay. This insurance plan has been tested
in cases where only a few payments have been made.
2. Whenever convenient, the member can pay larger
sums than $1.25 or $2 a week, earning cash rebates of
15c on every $1.25 piano payment made in advance, or
20c rebate on every $2 player-piano payment so made.
Every feature of the Club plan is worked out on true busi
ness principle, with the experience of the standard life insurance
companies to help.

Hardman, Peck & Co.?
The world of music answers :
"Makers of the piano and player-piano used and loved by
more world-famous musical folk than any other."
They own two splendid factories in New York city the
Hardman factory, making the more costly line, and the Harrington
factory bought to produce a less costly line. But musical taste
will not be outraged. The makers could not bear to be connected
with other than a really artistic instrument. So the Harrington
had one after another of the great Hardman ideals worked in,
until it, too, achieved recognition as "artistic."
There are over three hundred American makes of piano.
Scarcely a dozen have won full artistic recognition. ,
