I proposed to fnrui-h evidence in sup

Dear M its: Toat there my be no

that you were discharged for having ab
sented yourself, after haviug been re-in-Btated
without leave of absence from the

day of January lS'JJ. While tbie, under
the circumstances, was eo plainly in

BOOTS HAV HAD THilR DAY.
lha Trade fiadlr Affected by the lacreaac
Wear or Bhoea.
Tho diminished nsoof boots is a mat
ter of concern to the manufacturers ox
them and to the producers of heavy
leather mid heavy calfskins. Twenty
years ngo tho calf boot industry waa a
leading one in New England.
Whole towns were studded with fao
iorics which produced calf boots excltt
tively. For a decade the sale has been
gradually falling off, and today it Is of
hardly any importance.
A few manufacturers of shoes include
boots as a specialty, but tho demand is
too light to amount to much. When
calf boots wcro moro In vogue, mnnn
facturers consulted tho partialities ol
the cowboys, to whom price was a sec
The legs were frequently corded wttn
silk ttitching. Tho star aud crescent
aad other fanciful ornamentations were
inlaid on the legs of the boots. The
soles were inlaid with copper, eino and
brass nails. Tbe cowboys no longer pay
$15 or $20 for a pair of boots. They
want substanco instead of show. Bi
they were not tho only wearers of call
boots. They were extensively worn.
Many men prefer them today, thongb
tbe number is growing lens. Tbe old
fashioned Btoga boots were formerly
aold in largo quantities. They are well
nigh obsolete. There followed a demand
for a lighter and more stylish article.
A kip boot of lighter texture was pro
duced, about equal in appearance to the
best calf boot, bnt this, too. has fallen
somewhat into disuse. Where there
were 20 factories producing boots ex
clnsively, there fs now bnt one. Even
the farmers are using heavy Bhoes in
stead of boots, and if it becomes a ne
cessity to wear long legged boots they
Twenty years ngo the entire product
of Salem and Peabody was heavy boots
and brogan leather. Today thero are
less than half a dozen tanners making
it Brogans and plowshares are indis-
oensable in many sections of country,
but thero aro comparatively few exclu
sive manufacturers of these now.
The Creedmore, Dom Pedro, English
ties find Creole congress nre supplanting
thorn. The decline in tho consumption
of calf boots affects the tanners of calf
skins. It is a question what is to be
done with heavy skins. The tanners
must necessarily buy more or less of
them. They cannot select light and me
dium weights cxlusivcly, and if they
tan them they foel no oertaiuty or be
ing able to dipposo of them in the fin
ished state, Thero is nevertheless a use
in thia world for whatever is good for
anything, and there will be some way
of disposing of heavy calfskins, though
for tho moment it appears difficult to
point out tho direction into which they
will bo moved. Siioo una Lioatuer ii
