High Shoes Higher Than Usual, but
: Lower In Price
There are Three Reasons for the popularity of the high
top Boots. . . -

First, colder weather.
Second, the vogue for short skirts.
Third, the beautiful way in which the shoes, fitting
snugly to a point above the ankle, emphasize a pretty curve
below the skirt hem.
You will appreciate their neatness even more, when you
have tried on some of these styles. 'U

By Gertrude Robison Ross
THANKSGIVING for the things that are
And things that are to be;
. The last ray from the farthest star
The least wave of the sea;
The wonders that no hand can mar
Because no eye can see.
Thanksgiving for the moonlight
The starlight and the dawn
The fairy folk that every night
Hold court upon the lawn
And spread their net all soft and white
For us to trample on.
Thanksgiving for the little feet
That dance across my way ;
The sound of voices high and sweet
That fill the crowded day
The pleasant noises in the street
Where neighbors' children play.
Thanksgiving for the days we see
And dajrs yet to be seen
The present with its memory
For future years to glean
(But oh! my Love, the Used-To-Be,
And oh! the Might-Have-Been !)
