Improving Famous Road.
For two years parts o f the old Na
tional road, the natural thoroughfare
from Washington and Baltimore to
Wheeling and the west, have been In
such hud condition through western
Maryland that Its usefulness as a
through automobile route has been
greatly Impaired. The originally good
mirface has been worn off for miles,
exposing large stones, o f which its
foundation was principally made. In
some cases tiowlders were washed
down by the mountain streums, and
I weral stretches were Injured by the
hauling of pine timber from the dis
trict north o f Hancock and Fllntstone.
As a result a great deal o f the through
travel east and west has been going
by Bedford. Llgonler. Oreenshurg and
Pittsburgh, a longer and more hilly
route than that over the National road
direct to Wheeling and beyond. Late
ly. however, the state highway com
mission. encouraged and aided by the
Automohlle Club o f Maryland, has
taken an active Interest In restoring
the road to Its old rime tmportan.-«.

er in the heels, soles, and counters.
SOLE LEATHER SOLES
These substitutes are hidden where you can’ t see
them. You can’ t detect the adulteration until you wear
the shoes and find them unsatisfactory.
You may have an old pair of shoe* with run-down
heeli, counteri broken down, or the outer aole ripped off.
Cut them up and you will probably find them “ adulter
ated ” .
The only reason why any manufacturer uset substi
tutes for leather is that they are cheaper than leather.
They mean larger profits for him because you pay leather
prices for the shoes.

If “ Star Brand" shoes were not better than other shoes,
they could not have grown from a s na.l start to a business of
over tl5.non.000 a year, outstripping all outer shoe makers

Last year 646,448 people bought this famous shoe.

We have one of these ehoes out up to prove its lioneet

All the above are “ Star Brand” shoe* with the neme on
the aole and the star on the heel. Every pair Is made of good
leather. No substitutes for leather are ever used.
During the last six months Pure Shoe Bills have been In
troduced Into Congress and several stales, requiring that when
substitute« ior leather are used the fact must be stamped on
Many manufacturers and a few merchants are bitterly
fighting these bills. From the start the “ Star Brand”
manufacturers have freely and openly endorsed these bills.
They believe in this legislation because it gives you a square
Their business has been built up on honest leather ronstmo-

so rapidly. If substitutes for leather were better than leather
there would be lots of other shoe makers larger than they are.
Every consumer should be in favor of a Pure Shoe iaw.
Every "Star Brand" merchant believes In this great move

that the wearer gets what he pays for.
