A Piano A Day Almost Given Away

Our Slogan's You May Play While You Pay
Why Not? Everybody's doing it! Why Not Yoti?
It is better to educate your child now while it is growing to manhood or womanhood so that it will be
able to make its own way in the world than to save and scrim to save u-i a few dollars for it to inherit
after you are gone; for then it will be too late for your child to learn to make music of its own. There is
always- a day of small things, especially in learning to play the piano. Grown-ups will not practice the
small technical exercises required for learning to play any instrument; but, for a child, these small exercises
are great exercises. Buy a piano for your home and .nroll your child in one of the free piano classes in your
piublic schools. A little daily practice and study now will enable your child to play splendid music long
before graduation time. Then, your child will be ab!e to earn its own way through the University, easily
and beautifully, and be the, most popular youth of its class. In the,meantime, your home will echo happy
sounds from your children's fingers rippling over the 2iano keys, making your home atmosphere bright
and cheerful.
