The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Sept. 8,1936 Children's Shoes As far as children's shoes and oxfords are concerned, Neville's store is more like a wholesale house than a retail store. We buy children's shoes In large quantities, one hundred, two hundred and sometimes three hundred dozens at a time. People come from neighboring towns to buy shoes and slippers for their children. The reason is they get a big variety to choose from, they get any size they want in the kind they want and best of all they get them at less than regular price. We carry everything In the very finest welts for boys and girls. Boys' sizes t to 6, and girls' sizes 12 to big 3. Prices $1.49 to $1.98 and some 52.25. Then we carry a cheaper line for boys and girls at 89c, These are good shoes, triple sewed, easy on their feet and give lots of service. Below that we have a line of gunmetal oxfords, all sizes up to big 2 at 47r, It will pay you to bring the children here to be fitted. We like to wait on them and the children fee! at home in Neville's store, it is their store. The kids have right of way end can do as they please at Neville's.
