Well, at our house I have known for some time that I was not. Jo Ohels sent me a very nice pair of pants, just the size and color I like- I took them home, but Mrs. says I can not have them. She says there is mohair in them, and they would scratch my legs. Up to now I supposed these were my legs and I could scratch them if I wanted to. I generally scratch where it itches. Now if she was going to wear these pants I would not have a word to say about scratching her legs. I hate family rows so I will have to keep on selling shoes in these old worn-out gray pants. When they are gone I suppose I will be arrested for mopery without pants. Pants or no pants, they are unloading more shoes at the back door and I have to tend to business. Shoes are coming by the dray -load and selling as fast as they arrive. Thirty dozen Diamond Brand work shoes from Peters Co.
