Mr. 13 says. "I've worn a pair of your Norman & Bennett Elk Shoes 18 months and they are still good. Mr. K has a boy who has worn a pair of American Boy shoes 7 months. Mr. J has worn a pair of our Menz-Easc shoes 14 months. Mrs. A says, "I have never experienced such comfort, wear and fit as found in your Acme shoes.*' We will give you the names at our store. Men's Shoes There's nothing like leather Now, lust as you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, no tanner, by whatever process, can make leather of equal value out of all parts of a hide. Nature has made that part of the covering- of the animal called the "bend" linn and closely knit. As you go towards the head and down toward the belly line the hide becomes more porous and spongy and that condition continues in the same ratio in the leather, or linished product. So we think it wiser to sell good shoes. The new freak toe for men $5 00. Dr. Heed's Cushion Shoes S5.00 Other lines S3.50 and $4.00. Men's heavy buckle work shoe $1.65 All \V. I,.
