"J can see that the right one Is blind." • In reply the blind man merely opened his penknife nrid tnppod tho left eye with the little blade. It was a glass eye.

' \V. It. lil adA, 11, fu\il.:, How His Placo Was Filled. A. well known divine whose theological discourses draw crowded houses In nil the principal cities accepted an Invitation to lecture In a small provincial town, but discovered afterward that he had a prior engagement on the same date. He accordingly apologl/.ed and offered to make good any loss the Hoclety might Incur through his delinquency. A few days later he received n letter from the secretary assuring him that no hnrm was done and Inclosing a handbill which the divine Is never tired of rending to his amimcd friends. "As the Rev. Mr. Is unable to give his advertised lecture on 'Conscience,' " announced the hill, "four members of tho U minstrel troupe have kindly volunteered to perform Instead n screamingly laughable farce entitled . Any person who has bought a ticket for the other entertainment may have It transferred to this on payment of sixpence extra."— London Taller. Whan Explosives Explode. A popular notion that explosives will "go off" by any simple method Is wrong. Many of the most powerful explosives Imaginable may be 'kicked about, may be set on fire or may be shot out of a gun, and unless the proper agency for exploding them Is employed they will not "go ott" and will do uo damage. Tho reason for this may be explained by an Illustration. Consider n grateful of cool. There Is there enough of what we may call explosive energy to throw a 1,000 pound weight through n foot of solid steel— If only It could be liberated. But there can be no explosion without oxygen, and tho coal In the grate will not burn faster than the supply of oxygen In tho ulr which reaches It will permit. If the coal could be furnished all at once with enough air to cause Its complete burning, It would explode with as great violence as If It were so much dynn- mlto.—.St. Nicholas. The Sun of the Blind. I have not touched the outline of a star nor the glory of the moon, but 1 believe that (Jod has set two lights In my mind, the greater to rule by day ami the lesser by night, and by them I know that I am able to navigate my life bark, us certain of reaching the huveu as he who steers by the North star. Perhaps my sun shines not an yours. Tin? colors that glorify my world, the blue of the sky, tho green of the fli'lds, may not correspond exactly with those you delight In, but they are none the less color to me. The sun does not shine for my physical eyes, nor does the lightning Hash, nor do the trees turn green In the spring Bill they have not therefore ceased to exist any more than the landscape Is annihilated when yon lurn your back oil It. -Helen Kell T ill (Vi'lliry.

INTERESTING CHANGES AND MANY NEW IDEAS SEEN IN NEW FOOTWEAR FOR LITTLE PEOPLE. On medium grades a big season is expected. All combinations of leather are shown, with many tad shoes in button and lace. Patent, shoes with white tops and tan tops are noted. Broad toes still predominate. Nowadays, children's, misses' and young" ladies' shoes follow closely the styles for their parents. Any new novelty put into ladies' «shoes is also used in the small lines. Children's one and two hole sailor ties and Gibson ties are shown. Tans are strong in golden brown and russet. Perforated work and imitation tips are a feature this season. A new style noted is a misses' ankle tie with a button on the side. Last season they were made up with a button in the center. All these ties have leather bows. The "knockabout" children's shoe is a new feature. It has no lining, is made of solid calf or grain leather, with strap around the toe, so as to give strong serviceable wear, and takes the place of the ankle strap sandal which had so large a call during the last few seasons. In misses' and young ladies' a noticeable feature is that the heels are running higher and instead of a ^ inch, they now run 1 to 1J-2 inch heels. Children's Gibsons are largely shown with fancy trimmings at Broadwell's. 200 Boys' Straw Hats. Values 50c to $2.00. They will make good school hats and can be worn for some time.

Did you see the line ot clothing we had on sale last week? Many a man passed up a good thing right in his own town. Chasing rainbows don't pay. The pastures are always greenest in the lands that are far away. But quite a few find our clothing department does sell good goods cheap. The Koyal Tailors. We. are exclusive agents for the Royal Tailors. It will cost you nothing to look at samples. You need not accept any suit unless entirely satisfactory. They guarantee their goods ALL WOOL and that they will hold their shape until worn cut. This is an absolute guarantee backed by a firm rated at over a million dollars. Every Friday we offer special values not advertised. Make it a point to see what we have to offer. Good Shoes. There is just as much difference in shoes as there is in people. Some people look mighty fine, but they don't hold out. The market is full of cheap shoes. The manufacturers of good shoes don't have to look for a job any more than a good man. There is plenty of room in this world for people who know how to do things better, and their work don't go begging. The world is not looking for cheapskates. It is looking for people who can do things, and they command their price. If you know leather well enough to tell if it is calf or kid at a glance you can easily command ten thousand a year. Can you manage the wash goods department of a large Los An,- geles department store? It's open January 1 and pays six thousand per year. Even a first-class shoe clerk can command S25 per week and commission. If you have an idea that first-class shoes are hanging out at any old price and that you can just drop in and pick up a pair of shoes, better cut it out. You don't buy your doctor or your lawyer that way; you want the best. Give your feet a show. They are human. Buy reliable makes that fit you and you will get your money's worth. The firm of Utz & Dunn of Rochester, a city widely known for fine shoes, make 90CO pairs per day—and every pair is a good one. The Brockton Co-Op of Brockton, Mass., makes a fine line of men's Goodyear welts. Our local shoe maker, Mr. Simeonoff, who has worked for Rosenthal of San Francisco and the best retail stores in other cities, says he has never seen as fine a grade of leather used in any shoes as our Brockton line.
