DEALERS n ready made clothing
represent their wares as "Tailor made'
"custom made" &c.. but they ask the
regular prices of ready made and the
boast is understood. But when they
offer to take your measure, promise to
have the clothes made for you and
charge the tailors price, they impose
upon your credulity. Whether their
misrepresentation is wilful or negligent
the result to you is the same,
Most men want what they pay for and
are willing to pay for the superior
quality of made to measure clothes.
Our garments are cut and made to your
measure in our own workshop in But

men, but by expert tailors.

In the selection of a piano, look them
over well. Don't take the salesman's
word for them; use a little good judg
ment of your own. If the case is a flashy
one, made of pine wood and well covered
with paint, make up your mind the piano
is simply a "thump box," worthless as a
piano, made simply to give the party
selling you the instrument a large profit
and you are the victim.
First -class pianos are made of the best
material all the way through. The cases
are made of hard wood throughout and
everything accordingly. In your exami
nation of the Chase Bros., Hackley and
Carlisle Pianos you will find them first
class ra material and workmanship. We
make no pine case pianos. We are ready
to give you a new piano at any time
should one prove defective. Call and see
us and look the pianos over inside and
out We are not here to see how much
we can make out af you, but_ want to
offer a fair business proposition. We
know we can savs you money on a first
class piano. Come and talk the matter
over. We sell on any terms to suit you.
Our aim is to please our patrons, and
they are our references.
