Elk Skin Shoes and others Twelve years ago we made the first Elk shoe ever made. For ten years we haven't cut a foot of upper stock not Men/, "Ease" Elk Tannage. We are Elk shoe Specialists., the only exclusive Elk shoe makers in the Unitec 1 States, and Menz "Ease" and -"American Boy" shoes are recognized where they are known as the standard of value in men's and boys' Elk shoes. We labored and struggled for several years to Introduce Menz "Ease" and "American Boy" shoes and to make known the wonderful wearing qualities of Men/, "Ease" Elk Tannage. In those early years we had no competitors, but now there are many, all claiming to make a shoe "just as good" as the Menz "Ease" and "American Boy." We hava always welcomed competition, In fact encouraged It. It has done more to Increase the sale and reputation of Menz "Ease" and "American Boy" shoes than all the advertising we ever did, because It has led hundreds of dealers and thousands of wearers to compare Menz "Ease" and "American Boy" with the "just as good" kind. The universal result of this comparison is Illustrated by these two letters, one from a shoe dealer, the other from a consumer. Mr, A. W. Strieby, a shoe merchant of Syracuse, Indiana, says: "SomeMmes it is easy to convince a man against his better judgment that he is being overcharged or in some manner not getting fair treatment, but I have tried two different lines of the other "just as good" _ Elk shoes to my regret because I can't sell them for what I pay for S Menz "Ease" and "American Boy." I Mrs. J. J. Storzbach, Iron River, Michigan, a mother who knows how hard it is to find good shoes for her boys, says: "I have tried to get Menz "Ease" and "American Boy" shoes here and have been told they H have "just as good" a shoe, but I know better, because I have given S thetn a trial and know there are no shoes "just as good" as the Menz "Ease" and "American Boy." B MENZIES SHOE COMPANY.' Brockton, Mass., probably makes more men's fine shoes that any • other city in the world. The names of Keith, Barry Douglas, Stacy S * Adams, Howard & Foster, Brockton Co-Op. stand for honesty, and their shoes are sold in every civilized city in the world. The product of these, and in fact every Brockton factory, is practically the same, and were the names of the makers of these shoes removed, no one could tell which Brockton factory made the shoes. We now carry nearly 12,000 pairs of the best shoes made in the world, our stock of $3.50 and $4.00 shoes averaging much higher in real value than any city firm offers, because we sell a Brockton shoe at $3.50, whereas city stores sell Brockton shoes at $4.00, $5.00 and $6.00, their cheaper shoes coming from Maine and. Vermont. Shoes are graded by the boot and shoe workers' union, which compel manufacturers to make cheap and good shoes In different districts. In fact, labor conditions practically govern in all the manufacturing sections, and there is no such thing as obtaining good shoes at $1.69 or $2.39. Shoes that are mismated, damaged or out of style are sold cheaper, but with these sales many very cheap shoes are sold as high-priced goods. We would like to show you shoes.If, however, you feel our prices, qualities and assortments are not right, it will pay you to buy good mm shoes from such firms as Staub or Wetherby & Keyser, whose methods 5 and goods are right.
