Some Merchants Are Said to be High- Priced With Their Merchandise While Others Are Called Cheap. . You ofttirnes hear this remark made of some of our store-keepers: "Well, Messrs. & Co. charge good stiff prices for their goods, but somehow their goods always give so much better satisfaction than do the cheaper goods. I believe it pays to trade with Messrs. ~& Co. You have to pay a good price but everything you buy; Is In keeping with- the price."Good shoe's of all tilings are' important. A . well dressed foot speaks well for its owner; either a lady or gentleman may put on nice clothing, and unless their feet are properly clad they arc not well dressed, and it. is very noticeable. Now abont the style and quality of shoes to wear. It is only reasonable that a good fitting," well-shaped shoe must be made by experienced workmen, conse-. qnently this shoe costs more than does the same grade stock made by inexperienced cheap workmen. Cheap shoes haven't the workmanship, and as a result they do not fit, soon lose their shape and wear out. Liuc Pilling, the up-to-date shoenwn, makes a specialty of good high grade footwear, and his prices are about the same as others charge for ordinary goods. Try Line's . shoes once and you will wear no other. VOTE OF INDIANA HEHBERS. How the Congressmen Stood on the Veto.
