It is a poor policy to want to buy cheap. I like the definition given to the word cheap by a great American and a former president of the U. S. A., William McKinley. I quote: "Do not prize the word cheap." It is not a word of hope, not a word of cheer, and it certainly is not a word of inspiration. It is the badge of poverty. The signal of distress. "Cheap merchandise means cheap men and cheap men a cheap country." Quality and price are friends They never get far apart. And the quality of a product Will be remembered long after the price is forgotten. We build the best we know now and count our customers our friends, not our victims. Call or write for an estimate on mattresses and springs. All sizes made and work guaranteed. Telephone No. 3213 Whittemore, Iowa Mai! Box 11 Burt, Iowa P. L. STAINBROOK.

The month of May is the time that women have hot swollen aching feet. Last year with Silver Sewed flexible arch slippers we put lots of women back into circulation that were really down and out. When fitting shoes I think comfort is the big word in May or any other month. We have a big stock of Silver Sewed Slippers on hand. All sizes and at the same old price as last year, $1.98. We also have comfort oxfords made to my own specifications. This shoe has everything that goes to make easy walking. It has a three-ply heavy sole, yet as soft and flexible as a hand turn. This is the time of year to think of the great outdoors. The garden, the chickens, the birds, and the flowers, and oh,- what a grand and glorious feeling to have on shoes that are comfortable. For the girls, we have a wonderful variety of sport shoes. Oxfords, ties, and loafers. All kinds and all colors and combination of colors. We are short on room but will have them all unpacked and ready for sale this week. Neville THE SHOE MAN.
