You.ofttimes hear this remark made .of some of'our store-keepers: "Well. Messrs. & Co. charge good j stiff prices for their goods, but some- I how their goods always give so much ! better- satisfaction, than do the cheaper 1 goods. I believe it pays to trade with Messrs. —-——- & Co. You halve-to. pay a good price but everything you bay is in keeping with, the p'rice.'' Good shoes of all things 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 are not well dressed, and it i.s very noticeable. • . . Now about the style aud quality, of shoes to wear. It is only reasonable that a good fitting, well-shaped shoe must be.. made by experienced workmen, consequently 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 • Line Pilling, the up-to-date shoeman, 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. Subscribe for The Journal.
