( A Pittsburg dispatch tells a tale of a Salvation Army soldier who was certainly consistent in some things, if he was not In others. The soldier. Thomas Brady, was arraigned in court on the charge of having Ftolen a horae and wagon. - 'Are you guilty or not guilty?” he was asked. •‘Guilty, praise the Lord," replied Brady. Sir ■William Vernon Harcourt r.ow esti mates that the cosl of the war in South Africa will not be far from $400.000,C00 in cash, to say nothing of the thousands of British live*. It will take John Bull a long time to get that sum back out of South Africa, notwithstanding the rich ness of the gold and diamond mines of that section. Victor Emmanuel 1 of Italy was a hard headed. hard-hearted old warrior, whose pastime was shedding blood and carous ing. His life must have been strenuous enough to please even the Republican can didate for Vice President. Victor Em manuel 111, the new King of Italy, is a man of another type. His chief pastime Is collecting postage stamps and pasting them Into an album, and collecting old and strange coins. John W. Gates, of the steel and wire trust, will probably leave off gambling at the card table and in the stock mar kets long enough to express his disap proval of the acquittal of Alexander Jes ter In Missouri for the alleged murder of Gilbert Gates, brother of the trust mag nate. John W. Gates is said to have pur sued Jester relentlessly for a number of years, and to have spent a small fortune In the cfTort to have him convicted. The Arbuekles the other day announced kn additional discount on sugars. This, It Is believed in some quarters, means that the sugar war between the Arbuekles and the Sugar Trust may break out agoin. The Trust has not yet met the discount, but It has reduced the wages of its em ployes, which may be preliminary to join ing Issues with the Arbuekles once more. Trusts never hesitate 10 make their work ing people pay the cost of their wars if they can do so. Ballard Smith, whose death occurred at fWaverly, Mats., a day or two ago, was one of the many Southern men who have ochieved success in Journalism In New iYork. Mr. Smith was a Kentuckian, and got his first training under Col. YVatter eon on the Louisville Courier-Journal. In New York he was managing editor for a time of the 6un and also of the World, and for several years was connected with the Herald. Ills latest work was for the World, being the chief of the European bureau of that paper, with headquarters In London. Mr. Smith was widely and favorably known In the South. The question Is being discussed as to Whether there is any way In which the accomplices of Bread, the assassin of King Humbert, can be punished. It Is pretty well known that he had accom plices, and that they live in Paterson, N J. They cannot be extradited, because there is no treaty between this country and Italy covering such a case. As far as known there Is no law In New Jersey by which they can be reached. And yet It would seem as If they should be pun ished In some way. Since the assassina tion of King Humbert the anarchists st Paterson have been doing u great deal of talking. If vital some of them say Is true they are already plotting other bloody work. % CAN.4b COMPANY’S NIIFORTI NCS. If we understand the situation correctly the seixui*: cf the Maritime Canal Com pany's property by the Nicaraguan gov ernment will not cause profound sorrow in this country. II is a question whether that company ever intended to build the ! canal. There appear to be enough facts to Justify the opinion that its purpose all along has t>e*n to do just enough work on the canal to hold its concessions un til it could sell out to the United States at an enormous profit. Ami it is not im probable that the Cragln-Eyre syndicate, which claims to have pretty nearly the j same concessions as those held by the Nfari ime Canal Company, is seeking to I accomplish the same thing. ! There is ground for saying that If it i had not b#en for this canal company and 1 this syndicate a bill for the construction of the Nicaragua canal would have been passed by Congress long ago. The bills which have been introduced into Congress for the building of this canal have been heavily laden with provisions for the pay ment of millions of dollar? to those claim ing to hold concessions along the canal route from the Nicaraguan government. The whole country has felt that to pay the vast sum of money claimed for these concessions would be unjustified from any point from which the matter might be viewed. Hence there has been a great deal of opposition to the various canal bills. The Maritime Canal Company has spent some money on the projected canal, but it is dcubtfu! if it ha- anything that would be of value to the United States It is a question whether the work it has done could be utilized to advantage. To hear those talk who are Interested in it, one might suppose that the canal was pretty n arly completed, and that with a small appropriation it ccu’d be finished in short order. Asa matter of fact compar atively nothing has been done. The truth doubtless is that the Nicara guan government has become tired of waiting on the Maritime Company, and is satisfied that it has not now and never will have the money necessary for the building of the canal. It knows that the United States will scon be ready to nego tiate for concessions along the canal route, and it is probable that it wants to be in a position to make a contract with them for the building of the canal. The United States, of course, will do what they can to protect the interests of the Maritime Company, but it does not seem that the company has very valua ble interests. Besides, the United States, no doubt, would like the canal relieved of all claims against i. With there claims disposed of. the prospect for the early construction of the canal would be very much brighter. WILLIAM'S SPEECHES CENSOR F.I). It cannot be very gratifying to the Em peror William of Germany to have the blue pencil used on his speeches by offi cials of the foreign office before being given to the public, but it is with hie ap proval probably that they are dealt with in this manner. He finds that when he speaks Jisst what he thinks he says things which invite adverse criticism not only at home, but also abroad. The Emperor Is rather Intemperate in his language. He does not always mean Just what he says. His Imagination runs away with his judgment. His liking for picturesque talk fs so great that the sus picion Is raised by some of his remarks that In his earlier days he must have been a great reader of blood and thunder novels. This new order in respect to his speeches Is. of course, due to the criticism of the now famous speech which he made to his troops as they were departing for China. He has reason to feel hot indignation against the Chinese. The assassination of the German minister in Pekin was one of the greatest outrages of the century. Still. It was unbecoming the ruler of a great Christian nation to make a declaration of ’’no quarter to the enemy.” If the Germans should raise the blaek flagon their arrival at TienTsln.it Is prob able they would have to march apart from the allies in the movement on Pekin. The purpose of the movement Is not vengeance, but the saving of the lives of the for eigners shut up in the Chinese capital. Only a few Chinese are responsible for the death of the German minister. It would be unjust to kill Chinese Indiscriminately because of his assassination. There is no doubt that the assassins ought to be made to pay the penalty of their crime with their lives, but to kill thousands of China men Innocent of that crime from a mere deslra for vengeance would undo In China all that the missionaries have accomplish ed there. It is better, all things considered, that the Emperor’s speeches should pass through the hands of a trusted official, in whose Judgment the government has confi dence, before they are given to the press. In their censored condition they will not be so Interesting as they would otherwise be. but they will contain less that Is dis turbing or irritating. 'A new law in New York requires that the supervisor of the city records shall, twice each year, publish a list of the names of all city employes, with the sala ries they receive and the increases In sal ary, If any. The list for the six months ending June SO, published on Aug. 1, re quired 382 pages In the City Record, and showed that the salary list footed up more than $40,000,000 and the Increases In salaries for the six months mote than $2;0,- 000. It has been demonstrated by care fully prepared tables that the cost of run ning the government of the c*ty of New Y’ork Is relatively higher than that of any other lirst-class city in the world. One of the best drawing of the Coney Island attractions this year is a "wild man, captured in Borneo and scoured by the management at enormous expense.” The poster at the door of liis tent says his name Is ”An-nahk-r-am," and the ’'bark er'' who tells of the wonderful things he does says that hia daily diet Is made up of rats, snakes, birds, dogs and cats. Some malicious Democrats have discovered that the name of this wild man of Borneo, when Bpelled backwards, strangely resem bles that of n famous statesman of Ohio. But they hesitate to believe that the Ohio man Is doing a season at Coney Island In a cage. At the end of 1894 there were five golf cluba In the. United States. At the be ginning of the present year, according to un "ornclul” golf guide, there were nearly 1,000 regularly organized clubs with a membership of over 200,000 players. The money expended on the game runs up ln iu the millions of dollars. THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY; AUGUST 3. 1900. PLACED IN A HAD LIGHT. The friends of the President, in their efforts to get some credit out of the Chinese trouble for his administration, ] place the Chinese government In a very unpleasant position. They say that it was Secretory Hay’s diplomacy that caused the attacks on the legations in Pekin to be stopped. The way they state the mat ter is this: All Europe was sneering at American diplomacy and laughing at the credulity of the President in placing con fidence in the genuineness of the first dis patch that was received from Minister Conger. European diplomats thought the President and Secretary Hay were wo fully lacking in diplomatic shrewdness in trusting Mr. Wu, the Chinese minister ot Washington. Asa matter of fact, how ever. it was by believing in Minister Wu and treating the Conger dispatch as gen uine that the ministers in Pekin were saved. When Minister Conger’s dispatch was received Secretary Hay suggested to Minister Wu that he communicate to the Chinese government information of the friendly attitude of the United States, point out that the firing on the Taku forts might have been a mistake that could be rectified and recommend that the at tacks on the legations cease at once. It seems that Minister Wu acted on the sug gestion of Secretary Hay, and, as a re sult, the attacks ceased. Now', assuming that this view of the situation Is correct, does it not place the Chinese government in a very bad light? That government is trying to make it ap pear that it is not responsible for the at tacks on the legations—that the legations were assaulted by mobs that were beyond the control of the government. But, if the claim made for Secretary Hay is correct, the government bad absolute control of the mob, if. indeed, it did not incite it to attack the legations. But whether the legations were attacked by a mob or by imperial soldiers, or both, the attacks on the legations were stopped, according to the friends of the administration, when the government thought it advisable to stop them. When the time for settlement comes what would become of the credit claim ed for Secretary Hay if the Chinese gov ernment should declare that at no time prior to tho cessation of the attacks on the legations did it have control of those attacking them? It is apparent that the claim of credit for Secretary Hay would disappear nt once. The claim is based on the assumption that the government con trolled the soldiers and the mob that un dertook to assassinate the ministers and all the other members of the legations. If the government should admit this claim it would place itself in a position that would Justify the Powers in insisting upon a very large indemnity. It is hardly prob able therefore that the government will moke the admission that would support the claim for credit made by the friends of the administration. Even the United States seem disposed to take the position that Pekin has been, and still is, in the hands of a mob, and that the government has been powerless to protect itself, much less the foreigners there. It would be the wiser course tor the friends of the administration to pursue, to make no claim of credit for it in con nection with affairs In China until it is definitely known that there is some ground for the claim. TREE PLANTING HA' PROPERTY' OWNERS. The members of the Park and Tree Commission and all other citizens who feel an Interest in the city see the im portance of planting trees in front of resi dences. Trees not only add to the beau ty of the streets but also to the attract iveness and value of the residences. It has not been so many years since Jones street was one of the most beautifully shaded streets of the city. Now there, are but few good trees on that street, and It presents a rather dilapidated appearance. The trees hid the old and ugly houses. Now these houses, in many places, are exposed to full view. The same Is true in respect to Liberty street and Ogle thorpe avenue. On all three of these streets there is need, in places, of trees in front of resi dences. Oglethorpe avenue and Liberty street will soon have splendid avenues of trees In their centers, but It does not follow that there should not be trees on their sides. It will not be many years before Jones street will be without trees unless there is something done in (he way of tree planting In the very near future. In that case, instead of being a handsome avenue it will present a very unattrac tive appearance. It is to be regretted that the city hasn’t authority to plant trees on the sides of streets, in front of residences, and charge the property owners for them as improve ments. If it had such authority it would not be long before the city would be as handsomely shaded as ever It was, and property owners would appreciate, and benefit by, the improvement. The Tree and Fark Commission should encourage property owners on the streets named to order trees planted In front of their properly. If a few cf the property owners would take the matter in hand it Is probable that it would not require a very great effort to Induce all of them to Join In the improvement. There are now only a few thousands short of one million pensioners on the United States pension rolls. The forth coming report will show, it is said, that the actual number at the end of the fiscal year was 993,529, including about 43,000 names added during the year. During the same i>erlod of time a few more than 43,000 names were dropped, Including about 36,000 by death and the remainder by other causes. It appears, therefore, that the roll is still a growing one, with the like lihood that the million mark of pension ers will yet be reached, if not passed. The Spanish-Ameriean, Philippine and Chinese affairs will add thousands to the number of government pensioners, while the vet erans of the War of Secession are appar ently still a hale ami hearty lot. A Pennsylvania metallurgist has Invent ed a prodess for making tool steel which produces a metal so hard that with tools made from it Krupp process armor can be ’’cut like cheese." The new steel, it Is said, "has already saved the Bethlehem Steel Company $1,000,000 and the services of 800 men." No doubt before n great while this new anil exceptionally hard steel will be manufactured Into nrmor plates, and then wo shall hear. In all probability, that It has effectively stopped (hose "Ir resistible” ooft-nosed projectiles which so badly frightened Senator Tillman Just be fore the adjournment of Congress, There has been a strong sentiment among New York Democrats in favor of Comptroller Coler as their candidate for Governor; hut it has been definitely as certained that he will not run. He is a member of a Wall street firm, with his father and brother. The brother, who does not pretend to be much of a busi ness man. recently lost $130,000 of the firm’s money in speculation. The father made the, amount good and took the helm of the business; but he Is getting old, and Insists that the Comptroller shall quit politics for a time and go back into business. The young Coler, it is under stood, will accede to his father’s request. Later, however, he may re-enter politics, as a candidate for mayor. Several little revolutions are going on in South and Central America. Under or dinary circumstances they would be given display headlines in the American news papers. But with a presidential campaign at hard, and real wars going on in South Africa, the Philippines ami China, the press and people of the United States have not miii h time for the opera-bouffe revo lutions of the southern Americas. PERSONAL. —Mr. Byron Brenan, C. M. G., the Brit ish consul at Shanghai, has spent exact ly thirty-four years in China, where as long ago as 1866 he was appointed a stu dent interpreter. —Following the example of his employ er, Charles 11. Schwab, president of the Carnegie Steel Company, is about to found a trade school for boys in the neighborhood of Pittsburg. He will pay the salaries to all the teachers and pro vide a library. The boys w’ill be given courses on general mechanical lines, be sides thorough training in shop w’ork. Like Mr. Carnegie. Mr. Schwab proposes to make his gifts during his lifetime, so that he may direct more satisfactorily the expenditure of his money. —Bishop Potter of New York has not quite made up his mind which is worse— the obsequious flunkeyism of the common people abroad or the free-and-easy man ners of the Independent American citi zen. On his last visit to England the bishop was addressed as "your grace" until the phrase became a nightmare. When he arrived home again it happened that -the first person to address him as he walked dow r n the gangplank was a longshoreman w’ho knew him. "Hullo, bish, how are you?” said the man, and the bishop fell o thinking which of the two styles he preferred. —Colonel Cirujeda, the military in structor of the boy King of Spain, has lost his po?4 and has been transferred to a small garrison in Andalusia, on ac count of his brusqueness. Not long ago Alfonso XIII, accompanied by his friend.s, sons of nobles, went to the royal country house, situated on the borders of the Manzanares. The King left dur ing the drill hour, and Cirujeda, burn ing with anger, sought his pupil every where. He met the Queen and asked her where the little King was. Her Majesty replied that he had gone to the country to play. Then Cirujeda, unable to repress his indignation, exclaimed: "I think they want to make a shepherd of the King instead of a soldier!" On the following day he received a communication from the Minister of War ordering him to.change his residence. BRIGHT BITS. —Another Fasre Attraction.—“ Just heard from my family. They were at the Paris fair last week.” ‘‘Eh! The Paris fair! Is that still going on?”—Cleveland Plain Dealer. —Lengthy.—She—How many years have we been acquainted? He—l don’t know ex actly—a great many. She—l feel already as if I had known you two or three days at the seashore.—Harper's Bazar. —Safe.—"Well, sir,” remarked the ob servant pasesnger after watching the con ductor collect eight fares and ring up five, "yoti need never be afraid of being struck by lightning.’’ ’’Why not” asked the trusted employe. "Because.” replied the observant passenger, "it is evident you are not a good conductor.’’—Philadelphia Press. —The Outward Signs.—The passenger in the sleeping car, awakened by the stop ping of the train, pushed aside the blind and looked out. •• ‘Blitz & Schlatz,’ 'Kumpft A Donnerwetter.’ ’Schligel & Knopff,’ , ‘Leopold Schwartzenheimer,’ ” he said, reading the business signs that met his eye. "Well, I see we’ve got to Mil waukee.”—Chicago Tribune. —Flank Movement.—“ Say.” said the man with the hobo appearance, "could you put something in the paper for me?" "What Is It?” asked the easiest man on the force. "Well, let’s see. You might make It a cheese sandwich, half a cold chicken, an’ a quart of beer. If you don’t feel like the trouble of wrap-pin’ all them things In the paper’ Jis’ gimme the price an’ I’ll tend to it meself.”—lndianapolis Press. —His Assets.—“Yassir,” said the colored citizen, with a wave of his hand toward the cabin. ’Ts done broke. I reckon’s I’s whut dey calls a ’bankrup’.’ ” "What are your assets?" “Le-mme see. Bar’s me an’ de three boys, an’ ’’ “A'ou misunder stand; your assets are what you have hopes of realizing money on.” "Dat’s what I’s gettin’ to. My assets ain’ nuffin’ hut fo’ votes an’ a mule.”—Washington Star. CURRENT COMMENT. The Anaconda (Mont.) Standard (Dcm ,) says: "Let the Republican party triumph in Novfmber, and one of its first Impor tant acts will be the incr.ase of the stand ing army, and an Increase to 100,00) is only the beginning of militarism. In such a policy the first step Is always the hard est. It will be much easier to get the second 100,000 men than it was the first. And no human being can tell where we will finally land.” The Greenville (S. C.) News (Dem.) sa\s: “Some of the advocates of a third ticket are not satisfied yet, talihcugh the schem* was defeated at Indianapolis by 26 to 1, alter strong efforts to work up sentiment In its favor. The third ticket In 1896, com posed of Palmer and Buckner, got only 132,00.) votes. Such a ticket In 1900 would not get 50,000.” The Galveston News (Dem.) says: "Ac cording to the Louisville Courier-Journal, tome Republican has announced that Mc- Kinley has a good chance of carrying Texas at the ensuing election. The char acter of the man who made the state ment is saved by the omission of his name.” The New Orleans State* (Dem.) says: "Oily Willie could not mediate between the British and the Hoars when the lioeis only had oskfd hit mediation. But he Is ready to mediate with the Powers in be half of China, although none of them has sought or wishes his intervention.” The Richmond Dispatch (Dem.) says: "Ted Roosevelt Is to start for ’the ene my’s country’—that Is, on a speech-making tour of the Wes'—ln September, It is an nounced. He seems to be a right good serf of stunlpei—!or the Democracy." The Chicago Journal (Ind.) says: "Mr. Reed Is an ex-crar. Mr. McKinley will be an ex-emporer. And the republic will continue.” ITEMS OF INTEREST. —Col. Samuel S. Sumner, Sixth United Slates Cavalry, has been relieved, at his own request, from duty in London as mil itary attache.in order that he may join his regiment, which is now on the Pacific en route to Tien Tsin, China. —Death from suffocation is pleasant, according to Joseph Grady, a Winsted Conn., plumber, who was in a "ca *e-in" until unconscious. He said: "I thought of every prayer I had heard and repeated them over and over I could hear the men working above me Then came sweet music, the sweetest I ever heard That was the last I remember." —Hawarden castle, where Mr. Glad stone was horn In 1812, and which w r as her home during long period of her life, now passes to her grandson, William Glynne Charles Glads!t ne, who is a oo\ at Eton, 15 years of nge. The estate was purchased by Sir John Glynne in 1652, and the old castle dates back to the times of the Britons. —The demand for American honey is in creasing, England being the chief buyer. lowa produces 9.000,000 pounds annually, and numerous other states produce half as much or mcr* 5 . The finest honey is gathered from hives where white clov er and basswood are accessible, but in quantity it falls behind that derived from gcldenrod and buckwheat blossoms. —Some cne stole a sack of from the editor of a paper in Oswego, Kan., and next week the paper contained this gemle hint: "The man who stole that sack of oatmeal from out house owing to the sifting of the meal from a hole in the sack was easily traced to his own home—had better return wh it is left oi the provender or there will be more anon.” —Councilman Charles A. Smith of Lo gms port received a letter evidently in tended for seme other person of the same name. The stranger was found at the Barnett Hotel and proved to be a travel ing man from Syracuse, N. Y. It develop ed that the two w’ere born in the same town on the same day and that they bore a close personal resemblance to one an other. t —This is how a Chinese w’riter describes New Zealanders in a Chinese paper: "They live months without eating a mouthful of rice; they eat bullocks and sheep in enor mous quantities, with knives and prongs. They never enjoy themselves by sitting quietly on their ancestors’ graves, but jump around and kick balls as if paid for it. and they have no dignity, for they may be found walking with women." —While repairing a music box some years ago Ernest Wallace of Indianapolis broke a spring, cutting his hand and scat tering the machinery all about him. He recovered every piece except a small cog wheel. The wound in his hand healed up, but began to pain a few days ago. He went to a doctor, who, on investigation, found that the little cog hid imbedded it self in the man’s hand, where it had re mained ever since. —Have you any idea of the size of the common Greenland w r hale? Nillson, the zoologist, estimates the full grown ani mal to average 10) tons, or 244,000 pounds. That is to say, a whale weighs as much as about 80 elephants or 400 bears. Of course, some run larger than this. There are tales among old whalers of whales 110 feet long, and weighing at least 150 tons. But such are not seen in these days. A 70- foot whale is a big one now. —For a number of weeks past there has been a constantly increasing stream °f Roumanian Hebrews passing through Vienna in parties cf from fifty to ICO. It is said ihai the majority of these wretch ed folk are on their way to Canada,where they inrend to settle as laborers. Thou sands of them have been compelled to desert their homes by a steady persecu tion which made it absolutely imposdb e for them to earn a livelihood. —Plans arc no.v beirg made for the erection of a gigantic dim 220 feet high in conne?tion with a reservoir for Denver’s water supply. The dam is to cost $700,000 and is to extend across the steep canyon of the South Platte river some fifty miles from Denver, making a gr>at reservoir that will hold enough water to last Den ier for two years. The crest of the dam vlll be 1,650 feet above the city. It will take two or three years to complete the big structure. —The Chamber of Commerce of San Diego, Cal., is making an effort to estab lish the production of raw silk in the ag ricultural districts about that city. Steps have been taken to secure a large num ber of silkworms, and 5.000 mulberry trees will soon be planted. The climate of Southern California Is deemed even prefer able for this industry to that of Franck, the home of silk culture. The consump tion of raw r silk in this country is enor mous, and the entire supply comes from foreign countries, principally from Japan, China and Italy. In 1899 the total imports of this raw material w’ere valued at $43,- 546,872. The New Orleans Times-Democrat tells of a blind man in a Southern city who goes to the post office every day, carrying a small light riding whip, which he holds slightly inclined to the front, with the tip just touching the pavement. His sense of touch has become so deli cate that the whip Is almost an artificial eye. When the point encounters anything he makes a few swift passes over the surface and generally determines the ex act character of the obstacle. It is done so quickly and deftly as to attract no at tention, and few passers have the least suspicion of the old man’s infirmity. When he reaches the postoffice he turns unhesitatingly, mounts the middle stairs, walks over to the lock boxes, and, with out any feeling around, thrusts a key into the right aperture. —Several years ago the late Payson Tucker, the railroad man. was on the mountain division of the Maine Central Road, and looked over the grounds of one of the stations. Nothing more than the usual conversation passed, and he re turned to his car and went back to Port land. Nearly a year passed before he had occasion to call at the station again, and then he stepped off the car and asked pleasantly: "Do you have all the help you want here?" "Yes, sir; all that we need." "Quite sure you have enough?" "Yes. sir; there is not much to be done at ro small a station." "Well, I feared you were rushed to death and could not find time to remove that pile of old bricks I saw the Inst time I was here." With tha4 the general manager of the road stooped over the pile of bricks, and without removing his kid gloves, contin ued the work until the last one was neatly plied up. —One of the most Interesting rings In the world is the property of Mr. Temple of London. England, a descendant of Sir Robert Temple, says the Philadelphia Record. The ring Is a prized family heir loom, having once been In the possession of one of Mr. Temple’s ancestors, who lived in France during the revolution. This ancestor was a royalist, and was sent to prison for his championship of the King and Quern. He languished In Jail many months, his only solace being the sweet little tunc played by his ring, which would make music for him when ever the spring was pressed. Additional value was attached to the ring by the unfortunate man because it hud been made by the hands of hi* grandfather. When he was sent to the guillotine he marched bmvely to the scaffold, holding rus hand to his ear that he might hear the delicate music to tl|* last. Eventu ally the ring found its way back to Eng land to the Temple family, who now prize it as one of their most valuable posses sions.

Also the SINGER PIANO is sold by Wm. Knabe Cos., having the leading houses In Boston. Baltimore, Washington and New York city. There are a large number of leading houses handling SINGER PIANO, too. numerous to mention. The SINGER PIANO Is evidently one of the best pianos in the market, or It would not be sold by these leading houses. It has an elegant singing tone, much finer than most pianos, and about one-half the price of other instruments. Call and see, and examine the SINGER PIANO and save a good deal of money on your purchase. Saipe guarantee is ex tended for the SINGER PIANO as any of the leading pianos of the day, and a sat isfactory price will be given to all on ap plication. LIPPMAN BROTHERS.
