CEDAR RAPIDS LIFE INSURANCE CO, CEDAB BAPIDS, IOWA Times Are Better Two months ago it took 24 bushels of corn to buy a pair of our $1.98 work shoes. Today you buy the same work shoe for 8 bushels of corn. If a farmer owed a thresh bill or store bill of say '$40.00 and paid it 60 days ago it cost 500 bushels of corn. Today the same bill could be .paid with 160 bushels. This also holds good in the payment of interest and loans. Corn is king in Iowa, so we can feel sure we are coming out of depression. There is a different feeling among our customers around the store. ' We are getting rid of that sob stuff. When corn is going up in 'Iowa everybody is happy. Do not worry about shoes going up. Just now the factories are talking higher prices. They are advising merchants to buy .heavy and the merchants are doing It. This, of course, will start the factories making more shoes. In their enthusiasm they are more than likely to over-produce. So do not worry about shoes. There will always be plenty of shoes for sale at Neville's Shoe Store. I know where to buy them and how to buy them. I have been doing some crazy buying lately, 1400 pair of ladies' pumps and ties in one buy, 800 pair of girls' sport slippers in another, and a few days ago 1200 pairs of children's low shoes In all sizes from 6 to 11 and 12 to 3. , We also are doing some crazy selling, 700 pairs of the ladies' novelty slippers -went out the first ten days we had them. Just think of handing the girls Huth and James $4.00 sport shoes for $1.49, all sizes from 3 to 8, all widths from AAA to C. New stylish slippers, beautiful combinations of colors, .and oh, how they do fit the feet. We do not try to sell them, the girls just take them away from us.
