A Miniature Grand Piano


The DOLCEOLA is the only musical instrument ever invented that has been demanded and sold in nearly every country upon the globe, the first year it was on the market.

It is endorsed by leading musicians everywhere, as well as by the nobility of Europe.

FROM A MUSICAL AUTHORITY OF NEW YORK:-"I consider it an instrument of great merit. It will be of great assistance in preparing beginners for the piano."-Albert Gerard Thiers.

Chas. K. Harris, author of "After the Ball," says: "My children are learning it without an instructor."

For Rapid Accurate Work

use "Tec" and "Rex" brand drawing instruments. They are unrivaled for the work of modern draftsmen for two reasons-they combine in their construction the highest grade material and skilled workmanship and in addition possess patented improvements which greatly increase the rapidity of work, at the same time insuring absolute accuracy. During February and March we will ship, subject to approval, to all answering this ad a choice of two sets of instruments for $15. (One set shown above.)

The Princess of Isenberg, Darmstadt, Germany, says: "I have received the Dolceola, and am delighted with it."

The Dolceola with its four full octaves, embodies the exquisite tone value of two guitars and two mandolins. Its action, while similar to that of the piano, is quicker and more simple, permitting effects impossible with the larger instrument. Any class of music can be played. Music lovers are delighted with it. You must have one. Agents make from $100 to $500 monthly. Write for Proof. HANDSOME ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE FREE.

You Can Build Your Own Boat by
and Build Your Own Furniture the Brooks System

[subsumed][merged small][ocr errors]

and Save two-thirds to three-fourths


CAN sell you a boat for one-fourth of what a factory would charge. I can sell you furniture for one-third of what a dealer would charge.


I will sell you 100 cents' worth of actual value and results for 25 to 35 cents. Is it worth considering?

I cannot tell you my whole story here, but if you will send for my catalogues, they will prove what I claim. Give me a chance-right now, today. Read my guarantee-it means you take no risk.

I have revolutionized the boatbuilding business. I have spent the last twenty-two years in building or sailing boats, and a m a practical boat man.

Boat Patterns

Anyone can build a boat by using my exact size printed
paper patterns and illustrated instruction sheets, telling how

to do every little detail.
You cannot fail to build
as good a boat as the
professional boat builder.

Seven years ago I originated the Pattern System of Boatbuilding. To-day my customers are found in every civilized country on earth.

Over 50,000 boats (more than the combined output of all boat factories) have been built from my System, mostly by inexperienced men and boys.

Over half of these have built several boats-a large number have established themselves in the boat-building business.

My boat catalogue shows all kinds of boats, tells why the patterns cannot fail to be right and why anyone can build a boat from them. The price of patterns are $1.50 and up.

A Semi-Speed Model

Knock-Down Boat Frames

Many people prefer to buy my knock-down frames (all ready to put together) for their boats, instead of working up the rough lumber.

Owing to my immense factory facilities, I can, in many cases, supply knock-down frames at a lower price than you would pay for suitable raw material.

Every piece of the knock-down frame is accurately shaped and machined ready to put together.

I also send free the patterns and complete illustrated
instructions needed to finish the boat.

I can save you (1) boat-builder's profit, (2) labor expense,
(3) big selling expense, (4) seven-eighths freight.
You can
figure this out yourself.

If engine is desired, I make a special combination price
with knock-down frame.
