H. HARTH (O. SON
YOU are going to buy your winter shoes. Which kind or
yon going to buy? A good shoe may cost a trifle more
than the cheap, no account shoe, built to please the eye
and catch the careless buyer, but is it economy to bay the
inferior quality shoe? If you are going to buy a heavy, every
day, good to wear shoe, eai,y ou our foot, and as near water
proof as leather is made, buy the United Workingmen Oro Kip
Shoos. These shoes ore mado plain toe or tip, with or without
outside counter, medium or high cut. '
A SHOE with a reputation is the Walk-Over. Think of It,
1,U.'iS, 000 pairs of shoes wore made by them in their own
factories during the year ending November. 2o, 1901. Yon
want comfort and ecouomy, you waut a shoe that will wear
and keep its shape, sightly, and dressy, buy a Walk-Over Shoe.
YOU don't know what to buy for that boy. It was the same
with us. Wo solved the questiou. Without any hesita
tion wo can recommend the Good For Bad Boys Shoes,
and assure yon thero Is no shoe on the market that will -give
the wear and durability, comfort aud ease Good For Bad
Roys shoes will do. Tho old adngo "Tho proof of the padding
is tho eating thereof" will apply to Good For Bad Boys shoes
and all wo ask is try a pair with the assurance that these
shoos will provo the best investment yoa have made for boys
See that hat? It's a "Stetson."
Bought it at Welch's Closing out
sale, for 1.00. Always jmid to for
them at other stores.
IRELAND & MEADE now have
their addition platted and 011 the mar

HORSE CAUSES TROUBLE
the Boys Greatly Enoyed
1 heir Outing.
A story comes from over Klamntli
Falls way that two Grants Pass boys,
who ore On an outing in that vicluity,
havo had serious trouble with their
horso. It seems thu boys decided that
the animal needed grass and lots of
It, so they turned him out to graxo,
withont any hobbles on him as ono of
tiom is very tender hearted and
thought tho hobbles would interfere
with tho quudrniiod's eating. All
went well until they attempted to
catch him, when ho started for home.
Gnu of the boys, noted for bis walk
ing qualities, took two days rations
iu a flour sack and started to head off
the animal and succeed in tho attempt
after a short chase. Tho horso buy
ing had a tasto of freodom and the
Juicy bunch grass of that region, aud
having laid the foundation for a little
flesh ou his frame, started for homo
tho next time the boys turned him
out to feed. Tho only thing that
saved tho weary travelers from walk
ing home, a distance of a hundred odd
miles, was a cow boy, who captured
tho runaway before he got very far ou
his way homo. It fs said the boys
lost iu tho neighborhood of ten
pounds of flesh each, while the horse
gained about twenty. Tho boys do-
dure that thu next tlmo they go they
will hire nu iiiitoinubilo.
