MRS. JAMES HUDSON, IRYINGTON, GUEST AT SHOWER ON SUNDAY MEN'S SHOE WTIH SENSATIONAL NEW COMFORT FEATURES Velvet Step Features and Seamless Back Quarters Are Startling New Development in the New City Club Line (Special).—An amazing new idea for building comfort Into men's .shoes baa been perfected by Peters Shoe Company, branch of International Shoe Co., and will soon be Introduced in 10 new styles in the City Club line. Principal innovations in this outstanding development are improved Velvet Step features, as they have been termed, and a sensational new style and comfort feature—seamless back quarters. The Velvet Step features are embodied in a scientifically designed cuthlon sole, having three resilient cushiony pads built into it at the points where a man's weight is most heavily concentrated. One cushion pad Is under the heel. The second is aa inner longitudinal pad which locks the heel in place, and at the same time supports the arch. The third is a cushioned nietatar- sal pad which serves as a support for the metatarsal, thus relieving pressure on the ball of the foot. These cushiony pads prevent any shifting of the foot inside the shoe, thus preventing any "riding of the uppers", and aiding the wearer to walk in a natural, balanced way. The seamless back quarters and back lining are an exclusive, patented features, something really different from an appeareance standpoint Advantages pointed out are that they provide a neater better looking shoe, and a sihooth better fit for the ankle.

" Any ustomer who does not hear the at- endant say those words at the lose Of payment for goods receiv- d can collect a dollar without a wait. "If s for the shelf, not to be kicked around," said Webb Gillesple as e received a letter informing him o be a winner of a football autographed by Red Grange and Prea- dent Sinclair in a contest held by he Sinclair Oil Co. * * * Work on the new building at the Botsford Lumber yard had to be uspended when too many leaves rom the court house lawn via a north wind found their way into he cement mixer and forms. Surey that wind wasn't abetted by in- :umbent Democrats? * * * Mart McCall of the post office iays people on Lucas street can save themselves a lot of writing over a period of time by leaving out the word "East" In reference addresses. There is no West Lucas street, so East is superfluous. * * * Friends of Howard Vbison, who ived In Algona for 38 years and las many of them, can hear his broadcast from his amateur station around 1830 kilocycles. Anyone picking him up should send a >oat card to Conde, South Dakota, its present address. Then there was the exploring of Tbeo. Herbst who wasn't sure a huge decorative piece of Ice was ce or not. He cunningly discovered by hand that it was ice and not ising-glass as he had suspected. Tin said a local branch house of a big company employing many men and women requires its work- era to donate two hours labor each week to the firm. In other words they work two hours for nothing more than to hold their jobs. This policy subsequently adds greatly to the firm's Income at the close of the year. * * * Dr. H. R. Gibson has a hobby of reading. Not the spicy entertaining type of book or magazine but the deep learning books and magazines as portrayed by his library. Almost daily someone uses his knowledge and place for reference to worldly things and happenings In his library can be found a near priceless collection of the monthly magazine, National Geographic, ar ranged and bound, containing ev ery Issue from the year 1914. The big, expensive magazine. Fortune is there with all but one issue sine One of last year's Atgona Grays Is going to settle down to housekeeping either here or at Ottumwa with a local girl as a partner. Algona needs this young man and should go after him. Congratulations. * * * Often one hears that women voters are Influenced by the good looks of the candidate. If so, this year the vote can be cast by lot Rows of pictures, large and small, of candidates line the bill boards, papers, fence posts and bridge and not a one Is that of a homely man. Ladles, election Is not a beauty contest. * * • Forgotten for the day waa the ever fathful dog who sat silently, puzzled, but watchful with adoration on the hotel steps aa his adopted family entered and exited and passed him by In neglect Every dog has his day and so with this one, he was back In the high esteem of his master the next day who made up condolences for the passing up.
