The Broadwcll STORE Good Shoes The picture of a .-?1.50 Shoe looks just as good as that of a £5.50 one and there isn't much difference: in the appear;) nee of n -52..-"0 Shoe and one at I The difference in cost between a Mei Kay A Welt is about 50c, the leather i < being the satin: even an expert cati- I not tell the exact value of a shoe -- noT.hing on earth is faked like a shoe except perhaps women's coats and suits. 1 We noticr-rl a shoe in the repair shop ' this week which came from a Los Ani geles so-called "Sample Store." The i lady had it in to be stretched. It was a McKay Sewed Shoe in the bottom of which under a cheap paper imidc the rough stitches and nails showed plainly. This was represented as being a 54.5,0 Shoe "on sale" at J3.50. The wholesale price was about 51.35. Any shoe store would sell it for 31.H5. Sample shoes only come in si'/.cs 4/i 15. We have them and sell them at a discount of V\. A 32.50 shoe will -wear fairly well but wont hold its shape and doesn't lit. j.-52.00 is a better figure to pay from the point of economy than S2.50 and if you can afford it 54.00 to £6.50 is real economy, from the standpoint of comfort and health. A real shoe vnan hates a piece of poor leather and take* a great deal of pride in his goods. He likes to sell good shoes. There is no such thing as something for nothing. The only thing you get for nothing is trouble and you get enough of it when j'uit buy cheap shoes. Buy shoes with the manufacturers name in them and buy from a reliable house. We handle some mighty good makes: J. .T. Grovcr & Sons Hanari & Sons Hrockton Co. Op. W. L. Douglas Marmon & Bennett Thayer Uty, & Dinni. Every one of them a prince. Not a scrub in the lot. They put honesty and character into their goods. We carry a big stock. We are not here today and gone tomorrow. We must have permanent trade and its therefore to our advantage to give you a square deal. There are uo secrets about shoes. The names of the good ones are well known to every shoe man. We know them and have the makes. Why not try us? Help build up your own town. We sell shoes on the average 50c to $1.00 per pair under any of our city competitors.
