Looks Easy, but Isn’t.
You are told so often by so many advertisers that they are sell
ing shoes “worth so and so,” for “this and that”—ever so much
below what it is claimed they are worth, that you come to think
it an easy matter to sell shoes for less than they are worth.
BUT IT ISN’T. As a rule we must pay the makers of good
shoes a good price, and we must make a profit or go out of busi-
ness. If you want good shoes you must pay our price. We
could sell you junk at less than we cau sell really good footwear,
