False Humors
Unfortunately false rumors, detri
mental to the wearers of shoes, have
appeared in tho newspapers, and we
fool it our duty to state the facts as
thoy are.
The Question
of Profit s
Shoo manufacturers have been
AHked by tho Government to limit the
class of materials and amount of la
bor expended In tho making of shoes
rn order that shoos of good value and
aassring a fair prolit to maker and
retailer may continue to be sold. Of
necessity, however, this will dimi
t?ate, after present storks are- Hold,
all shoes of the very highest grades,
which necessarily must retail at
prices higher than will bo charged
for shoes restricted in style, but
which will not be on sale until some
tinto in the future.
Classification and
Values
Footwear purchased by us from
/row on, but which will not bo on sale
until late winter or spring, will be
claesed A, B and C, according to its
typo and quality, to be retailed from
$3 to $12. These shoes will not be
of as good values as shoes now sell
ing at these prices, owing to ibe
greatly increased cost of manufac
turing, but they will be the best val
neo obtainable nt these prices.

We have been asked by patrons if
it is not "unpatriotic" to wear cer
tain types of shoes. We answer that
all shoes are patriotic, shoes, for the
Government expressly desires us-and
all shoe retailers to sell all shoes on
lions ?..-B arid' C.
Buy these ?Shoes
WhJlo Von Cnn
After present stocks are exhausted
certain beautiful and daintily colored,
shoos, now extremely popular, "will
not be'obtainable. These were made
in exact conformity with Government
restrictions. When they aro gone you
cannot obtain them, however, at any
indee. Included in these numbers
sire the beautiful gray kid, two-tone
and medium brown boots with French
heels and turned solo boots of the
well-known make of-Utz & Dunn Co.,
Rochester. If you prefer these shoes
of distinctive character, and at pres
ent moderate prices, you should take
advantage of this opportunity.
All Shoes
Affected!
Price and style restriction will af
fect all shoos-men's, women's and
th loses' and children's alike. And the
prices will bo higher, quality consid

hausted.
Our Pledge to
Uncle Sam
We have pledged ourselves to tho
Government to patriotically conform
with the shoe restrictions, and have
applied for a PLEDGE CARI), which
we will show in our window upon its
arrival from Washington.
All shoo stores-wherever shoes
are sudd-have been asked to co-op

Cheraw. S. C., Nov. 1 ii. ----Several
weeks ago the nowapapors carried a
story to tlie effect that a company of
American troops lind gone too far
ahead of the main body of attacking
forces and had been surrounded hy
the Gormans for several days, whoa
they wore discovered and rescued
by a company of Canadians, being
then short of ammunition and ra
tions. Letters from "somowhoro lu
France" now loll us that this was
the Cheraw Company I, 118th Uegl
mont, Thirtieth Division (the old Co.
1, First Regiment, S. C. N. O.) lt
has boon brigaded with tho British
army, and that ls why we on this
side heard so little of lt.
The company, lt ls said, went Into
tho war with 248 men and lt conies
oht with only r>7. lt lost lill lu
killed, wounded and prisoners; and
every officer with the company was
killed except Capt. Gillespie, who ls
reported to havo been wounded se
verely. The casualty lists, of course,
went' to England, whence they woro
sent back to Gen. Pershing, but in so
Jumbled a form that ho returned
thom to England for correction be
fore he would allow thom to be trans
mitted to America.
It ls hoped Hint Lieut. W. A. Mol
loy, of this company, who was re
ported killed a few dnys ago, Is
among the prisoners takon by the
Germans. He was seen to fall, but
after the drive his body could no
where be found, and il is now hoped
that ho was among those who were
taken prisoner.

great triumph of right. Complete

alone, but the confident promise of a
new day as well, in which justice
shall replace force and Jealous In
