That England and Canada, as well as
the United States, are taking: the ques
tion of remounts for the cavalry serious
ly, and that the salvation of the de
sirable cavalry horse rests upon the
shoulders of the thoroughbred is strong
ly evidenced by the fact that the Cana
dian breeding bureau has been asked to
provide twenty-three thoroughbred stal
lions for the provinces of Quebec, Nova
Scotia, and New Brunswick.
It is the opinion of many army officers
thatdhe medium of the horse show is the
best -method to be used in arousing the
people's interest in horseflesh. Acting on
this theory, the Secretary of "War, the
Secretary of the Navy, the Chief of Stan,
the President, and many other officials
are taking an actie interest in the Na
tional Capital Horse Show, to be held
May 4, 5, and 6. A number of classes
for military horses have been arranged.

If you think $3.50 too little to pay for your footwear, you haven't had a line on CRAt)DOCKS as
yet The CRADDOCK Shoe establishes a new standard of -value cuts down the cost of living, without
cutting down the quality of the product. It is the South's answer to the oft-repeated question, Can the
South successfully complete with the North ?
Were the CRADDOCK Shoe manufactured in the North in all probability its price would range from
$4.00 to $5.00. But it is made at Lynchburg, Va., in the heart of the South, which is all that makes possible
such a low price. How well made any one of the thirty-five to forty thousand visitors to BERBERICH'S
Shoe Manufacturing Exhibition last fall can testify. This exhibition constituted one of the most remarkable
The run on this season's CRADDOCKS is already sur
passing that of last fall. Take this tip and get yours while

CRADDOCK Shoes have scored and scored heavily in this town. The reason is plain.
There's the manufacturer's-assurance that they will wear thirty days longer than
any other man's shoe of equal price. There's the Berberich Guarantee of satisfac
tory service. Then there's the price $3.50 a lower price than heretofore thought possible
on a shoe of such a quality.
Any Wanted Leather mj
demonstrations of real shoe worth ever given
was the clinching argument that proved to the
a shoe worthy the BERBERICH Guarantee.
"The CRADDOCK-TERRY CO, of Lynchburg; Va., having con
vinced us that CRADDOCK Shoes wUl wear 30 days longer than
any other $3 50 man's footwear, we take It upon ourselves to guar
antee the satisfactory service of every pair. Should any pair of
CRADDOCKS that we sell not live up to this guarantee in the
strictest sense of the word, we hereby agree to give tho wearer a.
new pair absolutely FREE.
