Most attractive styles for women in high top, fancy colored shoes. We have them -with light colored leather tops or we have them all leather, as you like. The prices are high, all shoe prices are high, yet notwithstanding, we believe.our prices are a little lower than most competition. You will be couovinced of tlfis if you examine and compare. There are very attractive lines of dress shoes for men'and boys in many different lasts, and when it comes to working shoes for men yield to nobody. The workmen shoe, question has been a study witli us for years;every pair we have are made special under our own · supervision. They are practical in style, practical in make, only good high-class material used, and the greatest ieatuje of all is our moderate prices. In addition to the high -class line of shoes we have the White Lopacs in the high top and the medium height. Wonderfully popular footwear for mining work. There has been some objection to these lopacs; at least some persons have decided they were too warm for spring and summer wear, but the man that wears them ought to be the judge. They claim they are c'omfortable, they claim they get "equally as much satisfaction out of them in spring and summer as they do'in the winter. Therefore, the stocks are kept up and are always ready to supply tbe demand. «S Large Department.
