ROGUE RIVER COURIER. GRANTS PASS, OREGON. MAYJ17. l907
The phenomenal and sudden demand for
Tan Oxfords which has sprung up so sud
denly through the east and west caught
many manufacturers unprepared to serve
their customers. This demand does not ex
ist in New York alone, but prevails through
out the larger cities of both east and west.
Golden Brown is the color.
We have them in stock.

LET THK KtD GO BAREFOOT
Spring has arrived. We know it for
several reatooi. Ureen peas are Id
the market. Bprlng bonnets are in
vldvnoe. The ioe cream signs are
plentiful and everybody is taklui
"tenlo" for that mo down feelloa
that 'we all have in the Spring es
pecial ly if we have a hard task before
oi. The Spring time is when the
kid should enjoy himself. Tbe kid is
any boy or girl tinder twelve yean of
age. Over that, they think that they
are grown folks and begin to have
notions. Well, to properly enjoy
Spring time the kid should go bare
foot. It Is the natural thing to do
and it gives the foot chanoe to be
come natural. A Chicago foet is all
right and the possmwor need net be
hawed of it. Uitrillcattoo is doing
the Ik lit it can to cnnh out the

time. Just think what a gloomy
I'hlMhood it will be for a boy to look
back on wheu he can never recollect
digging his toes into the soft sand or
wadding op and down some small
creek balding dams and Retting

from head to foot. A boy has never
been a boy who has not tiuracd a sore
toe. Iljiittkwt hi in realise tliut there
are troubles in this life for everybody.
Then there is the excruciating joy of
having a stone bruise. Thank good

are the strikes in various indostriea.
The laboring nion, goaded oo by the
increased rate of living, have been

It may be almost considered de

The old primitive method of

There was the danger of Indians, but
it may be submitted that there Is
not much choice In being burned at

lifted by blood thirsty Apaches or in
being roasted in a Pullman car and
scalded by the steam pipes. After
calmly considering the proposition
the moat of people would prefer to
risk the Iudiaus rather than the
team. There was always a show for
