    Special Notices. - May, 1895

    If you would be sharp, you'll flatly refuse An instrument poor to buy or to use: Like the hard, harsh voice of an angry scold, Cheap instruments sound before they are old: They're cheap in their make, material and tone, And if you are sound, you'll let them alone. The adage oft told is true, my dear friend, For, "the best is cheapest in the end." Now this is just the gist of the matter, Spoken by lips that never would flatter: The "Crown" is well made, both inside and out, From ivory keys to the pin blocks stout: The "Crown" will outlast your fingers and feet And please you with tones alluring and sweet: You'll say when you've looked from East unto West, The "Crown" pianos and organs are best. For in fact, the "Crown " is like a good wife, You'll have no other, you'd take it for life. Read More
