They are over half sold now, arid -we have only had them two weeks. They are real $4.00 slippers, but we are selling them at fl.98. Black, blue, gray, beige, and white, sizes 4 to 9, widths AAA to C. We have sold them as far west as Spencer, north to Blue Earth, east to Mason City, and south as far as Ames. This proves what real value-giving does. In this case one woman told /another they made an. endless chain of .it. Slippers like these at $1.98 advertise themselves, and It is no trouble to sell them. Nearly everybody takes two pairs. 'Lots of ladies buy three and four pairs, and one woman in a neighboring town has already sent for 14 pairs. They 'have gone over In a big way. Now I am taking on the same kind of a deal in men's oxfords and shoes. After a week of correspondence I Just got a wire accepting my bid on 1250 pairs of men's shoes and oxfords. These wall be divided into two lots, and I will sell them at $1.98 for the regular $4.00 values, and offer you the $5,00 shoes and oxfords at $2..98. These are brand new standard guaranteed ehoes at about half of the regular price. This is a case lot proposition right from the factory, all sizes from 6 to 12, and widths from C to EE. I guess it is over-production, and they would rather have the money than the shoes. Anyhow I got a bargain, and I am handing it right along to you. These prices would draw blood out of a turnip or money out of a tin can. Neville's "The Shoe Man" Algona, la. Quarton Speaker on F. B. Program Lakota, Mar. 14—A joint meet- Mr, and Mrs. W. J.
