Shoe Business Young man steer dear of the shoe business. If I was starting again as a young man I would not tackle the shoe game. You are apt to lose your money, your patience and your chances of eternal bliss In the world to come. Just this morning I lied to a woman. I told her she had fallen arches. I knew she didn't but what could I do, she was bound to have broken arches, and I knew I could not sell her slippers unless her arches were broken. Then the next woman held me up 30 minutes telling about a nervous attack she 'had last week. She finally bought a pair of 39c bedroom slippers. I have known her thirty years and there Is not a thing in the world the matter with her. She Just wants to be pitied. The next woman customer brought me some doughnuts. She said the slippers I sold her last spring were the joy of her life and she would like another pair. That tied me up for another thirty minutes. Anyone would know that I am too old ito eat doughnuts. What I wanted was to get over to sec Tom Sherman on very important business. In the afternoon I was caught again, a lady friend asked me to take care of baby while she ran up the street to do some shopping. I am used to children and know how to protect myself, but this fellow wan too quick for me. Nature is a great study, but sometimes a kid gets too natural. Tell mo not in mournful numbers, That kid I held was dead. No, No, ho Just slumbers And It costs 50c to have my pants dry cleaned. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN.
