value of wearing apparel" and while we believe that this statement is Inrpcly
exaggerated, we do know that soma very successful merchants buy goods on
this theory, and that the average persou will buy a shoe, a suit of clothoj or
a piece of goods and pay a good profit it it LOOKS WKLL, no matter about
its value or wearing qualities.

Every man, woman and child in the county is looking for the
best values obtainable in Footwear, and it is perfectly natural that
every merchant should think that he has just a little better values than
The true value of any Shoe is not tested by the merchant, how
ever, but by the customer. Our customers often know more about
the intrinsic value of a Shoe than it is possible for us to know.
This is certainly true of some of the older and more reliable Shoe
Factories in the country. It is, therefore, with pardonable pride that
we call the attention of the public to the past 12 or 15 years record
ol our Big Shoe Department. Seventy-five percent of the Shoes han
dled in our Shoe Department have been made by three of the largest,
oldest and most reliable shoe facteries in the world, viz. : The Pin
gree Shoe Co, of Detroit; The Douglas Shoe Co. of Brockton and the
Hamilton Brown Shoe Co of St. Louis. If these makes of Shoes
ARE THE BEST YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY ANY OTH
ERS. Our records show that we have sold over mo.OOO pairs of
Shoes, and every line of Shoes we carry has been thoroughly tested,
and as we carry the largest.and most complete stock of footwear In
this part of the state, you can't afford to buy Shoes until you see R.
