than tongue can tell
And every two or three minute he'd
say. "Oh Frank, this is swell;
I hope- God in his wisdom lets me live
to see (he day
When we'll have a 'Shasta Limited'
between Itoteburg and Coos Pay."
They landed si fe at the Union depot,

Thereyire six really big shoe fac
tories in the United States. These
turned out 25.000.UOO pairs of shoes
last year. Shoes to Uie value of $10.
000,000 were sent abroad, and the re
mainder, valued at $340,000,000,
were used In this country. . Although
the trade In rubbers increases every
year, only $70,000,000 was bpent for
such things last yea
We are told that the preaching of
vegetarirnlsm interferes greatly with
the shoe busines. Last year Germans
took a notion to eat less meat, and,
according to the bookkeeper, the shoe
manufacturers In the laud of the kai
ser wore in despair. . It is eccssary to
sell a great deal of meat In order that
hides may he obtained without loss
