The F-M Automatic Coal Burner quickly pays for itself by cutting your fuel bills up to 50%. Investigate this new way to save money, drudgery and labor.

I know shoes from making them on the bench, fifty years ago to peddling them on the road as a traveling man, and then here in the retail shoe game for over 35 years. I have lived the life of a shoe man and while I do not know it all, I am sure I do know how to fit the human foot. I find that fitting the feet properly is half of the game and knowing how to buy and where to buy the right shoes for your customers is the other naif. Some people think they have a hard foot to fit. No foot is hard to fit if you have the right shoe to fit it. It is a crime to sell a pair of shoes to anybody unless the shoes are adapted to his or her style of feet. The reason five people out of ten have foot troubles is because they buy shoes with more regard to color and trimming than they do to proper fitting. Every day on the street I see girls and women trying to walk in shoes that are misfitted. They are not walking, they are just hobbling along. They would fall down if they took a good healthy free step. If every one, men and women, all wore nothing but high spike heels it would only require four generations before the human race would be web-footed. Walking is good exercise. Tap dancing ia very good to develop sound feet. Football brings you pulled tendons, broken-down arches, cracked ankles, etc. It is too severe. It tears down instead of building up. Condition of the feet has a great deal to do with our physical and mental make up. It is pretty hard to be pleasant carrying around a «hoe full of pain. Last, but not least, keep your feet warm and dry. Buy your shoes and overshoes at Nevilles, where you get a good fit and first quality goods at second quality price. Saving is a virtue we will all have to practice for the next few years.. Even President Roosevelt U slowing up on his spending spree.
