is so much better and cheaper, no one would
think of wearing homespun. Many people

"Many months of comfort at little
expense" is the way Charles A. Pear-
son of San Diego, California, sums up
his experience with Neolin Soles. Mr.
Pearson had two pairs of shoes re
soled with Neolin Soles, and after
wearing them for twenty months
writes "I will have to get .new shoes
sometime, .but so far as the soles are
concerned, that time seems as far
distant as when they were new."
This is typical of the experience
millions are having with Neolin Soles.
Created by Science to be durable,
flexible and waterproof, these soles
are an important factor in cutting
shoe expense. You can get them on
new shoes for the whole family, and
for re-soling. -They are made by The
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Akron,
Ohio, who also make Wingfoot Heels

MANTEO MAN TAKEN IN
BY SAILORS IN NORFOLK
Bijt He Recovered His Roll After an
Exciting Chase In Which
Detective Took a Foot
How George O'Neal, of Manteo, Dare
county, came near losing his wad in
Norfolk the other night is entertain
ingly told by the Virginian-Pilot. That
paper's account follows:
Yesterday George decided that he
would like to spend the day in a real
city, so he comes to Norfolk with a
roll of $341.89 in greenbacks and checks
in his breast pocket and starts in to
see the sights. - m
Now O'Neal was unfamiliar with the
byways of Norfolk, and was in a bad
way to see the real sights by his lone
some, having ventured no further than
the shops along East Main street.
So it was no wonder that when two
pleasant faced boys in the navy uni
form of Uncle Sam's navy fell in with
O'Neal and vouchsafed the information
that they too were from the land of
the long leaf pine, he was down right
glad to see them and accepted with
alarcity their invitation to show him
over the city.
The sightseeing tour ended, however,
one block from where it began, when
one of the sailor lads, Euprehiam Dixon
by name, is alleged to have snatched
George's entire roll, while the latter
was watching the ferry boat come in,
and sprinted up King's Lane with his
pal, James C. Swain at his heels.
O'Neal gave chase, but what chance
did he have against two athletic young
fellows from the navy.
The gobs were gaining at every jump
when around the corner came Sleuth
