But if you have a $1.00 and you are going to part with it, blow it like a dry leaf and as though you owned a maple grove. Spend it so yourself and the people you deal with will enjoy the transaction. Spending money is an art. Some people enjoy buying what they need for themselves and their families. The miser hates to spend a nickel. It makes him miserable and he spends it so grudgingly that it makes everyone he deals with feel miserable. Piling up money does not always mean piling up happiness. You get neither pleasure nor profit out of money unless you spend it. It is not good to eat, you can't wear it, and you can't take it with you when you die. The most pleasure possible to get out of a small amount of money is in buying a pair of v these new Easter slippers that have just arrived at Neville's Shoe Store. They are by far the smartest styles we have ever shown, and oh how they do fit! Prices on these beautiful low shoes are $2.98, $3.95, and a few at $4.95. Besides all this, during March you get a pair of fancy house slippers FREE with each pair of dress elippers. This offer is good only to the 1st day of April. Sometime this week 2400 pairs of ladies' silk hose will arrive at Neville's Store from the Arrowhead Hosiery Mills, of Chattanooga, Tenn. They are light weight service, full-fashioned, beautiful new Spring shades, new dull finish 18 turn tram twist, not olive oil or chemical coloring. They class right up In the $1.75 to $1.95 grade and will help beautify the prettiest ankle. We are going to cause a sensation by offering these beautiful hose at 75c a pair.
