We are taking pianos in exchange for Lester Pianos |
and Player Pianos which people paid SIOO.OO to >.
$200.00 mere elsewhere than they could have \|
purchased a Lester for in the first place.
Consequently the total amount they pay t
in order to own an artistic piano is
nearly twice as they

Plotter In the Million-dollar Merchan
dise Swindle Becomes Witness for
the Government—The Plans Were
Mode at Carlisle
St. 1-ouis, Feb 4.—Tho origin of the !
alleged conspirst-v by which a chain of
1 stores was established in various cities
tor the purpose of profiting by going
into bankruptcy was told in the Fed
oral District Court here yesterday by
Charles L. Gseenjicld. one of 12 men
j indicted in the so-called " Miliiou-dol
j lar Swindle" and who has turned wit
ness for tho government. Three more
defendants pleaded guilty in the Dis
trict Court last night of using the mails
ui a conspiracy to defraud. They
were Samuel Brown, of Philadelphia,
and Jacob 1., and M. M. l.iobuvitz,
brothWs, of East St. l.ouis, 111. Their
bonds were raised from SI,OOO to
| $3,000 each and the men went to jail
i for the nigh!.
All day the men had listened to
Greenfield. confessed ringleader of the
defendants. as he told ho*v Brown
and others had helped lain to establish
stores and within eight months lend
these stores into prsiitablc bank
| ruptcies. Greenfield and two other de
fendants at the outset of the trial
! agreed to testify for the government
; ami later to plead guilty. Federal otli
| eers charge that the 12 defendants
; wituin the last few years obtained ap
proximately $1,000,000 worth of mer
chandise on credit and by secret ship
ments disposed of most of it before
j their strings of department Stores
i tailed.
The plan was organized in Carlisle,
I Pa., accrifing to Greenfield. on the
j eve of his failure in business there.
lln the-"conference were Greenfield,
j Sam Brown, Adolph Muscovite and
; Meyer Rot man. Brown and Hotmail
| had been associated with Greenfield in
I'.iiladeiphia. he said, and when they
failed they concealed $40,000 worth of
j merchandise from the bankruptcy trus
; tee and moved tins merchandise to Car-
I lisle, where they opened another store.
I The Carlisle store failed. Greenfield
; stated, and then they started in St.
; I nis. Muscovite wanted to run the
j business honestly, an I when his part
i tiers refus« d to incorporate to make
t.iis possible he withdrew from the
firm. Greenfield said that within eight
months the alleged conspirators set up
j seven More* six cities and that all
of them failed, as had been intended.
: A store at Kansas t'itv went into bank
! roptey within three weeks after it
1 opened.
Kotinan, he said, opened a store in
Louisville and Isiter Julius Steinhardt I
opened another store there, to which !
tin stock • 1 ' Hotmail's store was trans-j
'erred secretly. Rotman then went into
: bankruptcy. Greenfield -aid that Stein
hardt's Ijoitisville store then went into
bankruptcy :l nd that Steinhnrdt opened ]
; a store in Baltimore.
Greenfield testified that before he i
decided that his St. Louis store should |
I fail he shipped more than 20 . :IS<M of'
merchandise to Alfred Goldberg and I
I Harry A. Cohan, owners of the Penn-j
svlvania Commission Company, in Phil .
adeip'aia. then went to Philadelphia and ;
opened the Pennsylvania Salvage Cm- j
pany, in which Cohan was a partner.:
They went to Bait TO re to buy goods .
. fropi Steinhnrdt. While the men were;
I operating stores in Philadelphia and

half a ceiitun to contain mineral de

have been worked intermittently; but j
not until late in 1!'12, when large |
bodies of ore yielding SSO to sf>o a ton i
were discovered, did the district at
tract widespread attention. Then fol ]
loweil a typical Xeva Iti boom. In less
than a month the hitherto desolate
canyon had a population of over -.0it0.,
and more than a ?<ore of properties 1
were producing. The total >liipments i

portaut preducing district for some;
years to come.
Bulletin SSO-M contains a concise I
account of the local geology and de i

An Easy Way to Remove Super
fluous Hair
Ladies who suffer from the humili
ating disfigurement of hair on face,
lips or ehin, will be interested vn the
following formula which has the ad
vantage of being simple and inex
pensive, as well as marvelouslv effec
tive. It is not claimed that one appli
cation will permanently destroy the hair
roots,, but it is claimed, and the claims
are borne out by. actual tests, that one
application completely removes the hair.
It you have hair which you wish re
moved ask Geo. A. Gorgaa, Harrisburg,
I'a., or any other leading druggist to
mix 4'a drams Pulverized Sulthine Con
centrate with 2% drams Zinc Oxide,
and 1 dram of Powdered Orris Root,
anil put in a wide mouth bottle. For
Use, mix a little of the powder into a
paste on update by adding a few drops
of water. Apply with a narrow knifo
blade and remove at the end of two
minutes with the back of the knife,
when the dissolved hail will eomo
with it.
Caution:—This must not be used as
a substitute for shaving, as if the roots
are once destroyed, hair will not grow
