We aim to make the best piano possible and to sell it at the lowest price possible.
If you wish to buy a fine piano at a low price, write us.

THE INSTRUMENTAL ATTACHMENT imitates perfectly the tones of the Mandolin, Guitar, Harp, Zither, and Banjo. Music written for these instruments, with and without piano acconi paninient, can be played just as perfectly by a single player on the piano as though rendered by a parlor orchestra. Every Wing Piano is guaranteed for twelve (12) years against any defect in tone,

action, workmanship or material. N. B.—Special Prices and Terms to Railroad Men.

Hundreds of Railroad Men have bought the Wing Piano-READ THESE: The piano I received from you about eight months ago is in perfect condition and has given good satisfaction in every respect. I can cheerfully recommend the Wing Piano to any one wishing a good piano and on terms that should be satisfactory to any person. Hoping that others are as well pleased with their pianos as I am with mine, I remain,

C. C. Paxton, Conductor Plant System Rys., Sanford, Fla. I am well pleased with the piano Style 29 and consider it far ahead of any piano that I have tried for tone and light action, while its zither and orchestral attachments are certainly an advancement toward perfection in pianos.

W. D, ROBERTSON, Central of Georgia R. R. Co., Milner, Ga. Am happy to say that the piano I bought of you last winter has proven eminently satisfactory. Among its many good points is its excellent steadiness in standing in tune. Notwithstanding the long haul during the coldest of the winter the instrument was in good tune when opened up and we have not had occasion to have it tuned since. The instrumental attachment, and in fact all the qualities, are excellent. I feel myself safe in saying that the end must have been attained, for there is nothing more to be desired in a piano, and will gladly recommend it to my friends as a perfect instrument.

INVESTMENT ALONE BRINGS WEALTH. The day when a man or woman could enter the commercial arena with only a few hundred dollars with a certainty of success ended with the passt g of the last century, yet there is still one way open today through which a person of only moderate means stands an equal chance with the lovestor of millions, that is by an investment in a producing Gold Mine, as“ Gold never drops in value."

This opportunity is open to you by an immediate investment, before a further advance in the shares of the

Cauca Valley Consolidated Mines Company

NOW SELLING AT 25 CENTS A SHARE. The B. of L. E, have made a special investigation into the standing of this Company and have recommended the parehase of the shares to its members, Copy of a Letter from a former Grand Trunk Engineer, who was Lieutenant of Corps No.3,

under Col. Ludlund, when engaged by the U. S. Government in the survey of the Inter continental Railway, which passes through the property of the Cauca Valley Consolidated Mines Company, Columbia, S, A.

477 Lincoln Avenue, Detroit, Mich., Maroh 24, 1903. The Canca Vailey Consolidated Mines Company, 704 Whitney Opera House Building, Detroit, Mich.

GENTLEMEN : – Having been informed by several of my brother engineers tha they are interested in your mine, I thought you would like to know what my personal experiences were while surveying the railway through your property for the Government,

Our headquarters were at Caceres, just north of your property, and during the survey when removing the stakes we found gold, almost lying on the surface, several nuggets of which I have in my possession. I have seen the natives washing gold on the banks of the Cauca and adjacent streams, and have also seen the gold after a heavy rain storm lying in tho streets of Candera (situated on your property).

During my 14 years of service whlie surveylog in the Klondike, Californla and other gold-producing districts, I say nothing to rich as that where your Placer mine 18 situated, between Caceres and Raudal. I also saw coal, timber being plentlful. Your prospeotus gives the facts as we found them and agrees with the U. S. Government report. Therefore I can say, with honest manage. ment anyone buying shares will be handsomely paid; for the gold is there in large quantities and once your machinery is working the returns I think will be surprising.

Now, gentlemen, as you know, I am not in any way connected with your company bat any engineer wanting information from me I will give it cheerfully and tell them what my experience was when engaged in the survey of the Intercontinental Railway through your property for the U. 8. Government as Lieutenant of Corps No. 3, under Colonel Ludlun...

Very truly yours,

R. P. ERNEST.
