We purchased 'WO pairs of good shoes made for the above firm arid offer them at reductions of 10 to 25 per cent. Splendid Shoe Values We feel sure the customer who buys good shoes, properly fitted, will secure more real comfort and wear than those who buy haphazard. The good things in life are those we pay a fair price for. So many inferior shoes are now being made and sold that the last meeting of the Boot and Shoe Manufacturers Association have asked Congress for laws compelling shoddy manufacturers to stamp their product. But the real remedy lies with the buying public. Shoddy shoes will often wear fairly well. But the embalming process used in pressing the leather leaves it full of injurious acids, which ruin the feet and oftentimes the health of the wearer. Tanning leather requires nearly a year. Embalming takes from twenty-four to forty- eight hours. J. J. G rover's soft shoos for tender feet are every pair hand made. We also have them in the old fashioned English Serge.
