I am now at an 'age where I do not question anyone's right to do and think as ^hey please, provided they "are 100% U.S. A. ; . .:;''''f"* ;<'•';'. '-.-•." : - I found out after several lively engagements the way to get along -with my wife is her way. We are partners, she is the big part. I am ( the silent partner. When a fussy, supercilious customer comes in the store, instead of quarreling with her I just let her go. After she has looked all over town and is good and tired it is easy to slide down her cellar door. If a snake sticks his head out of a hole when I am passing I figure that hole belongs to that snake. I keep on going. If a neighbor starts a loud speaker at 6 o'clock in the morning when I want to sleep until 7, no use fussing, for'after all, it is his radio. This spring I even let my neighbor's dogs play in my Victory Garden. Hard on the garden but the dogs enjoyed it. Yes, I have changed. The world is changing. The way of selling shoes has changed. Sixty years ago ladies' shoes had 18 buttons. In order to get " at them you had to pry up a heavy petticoat and a dress with which she had swept the sidewalk. She was afraid someone would see her ankle. Now days all you have to do is slip on a pump and with legs free of all entanglements watch out that you do not get kicked in the face. By the way, right now I have three beautiful lines of pumps and ties—Patricia Pats, Myers quality shoes, and a cheaper line at $2.25, also a full line of sport oxfords, including the new suedes in saddles ' or plain. Lest I forget, the new Cinderella stockings are here. They are beautiful, and a bear for wear. You can go places when wearing a pair of Cinderella hose, and Patricia Pat pumps. The Cinderella gin gets her man every time. JIMMIE NEVILLE The Shoe Man NO FOOLING! These last few chilly days have made you think about the heat you are going to have in your house this winter.
