Christmas giving is rapidly becoming more practical.
The bestowal of useless gimcracks upon friends and relatives
is usually unappreciated and people are beginning to recognize
that such things are money and good intentions thrown away.
Give; but give something useful and sensible.
Under the head of useful, sensible, practical, sure-to-be-appreciated
gifts is a pair of shoes. The popular way of
giving them is to present one of our "Shoe Orders" so that
the recipient can select the style and fit to suit.
There is nothing ordinary about giving shoes. The one
who gets an order will usually select a pair of Shoes for dress

gift. A pair of dancing pumps, a pair of dress shoes ; or even

To an Advertiser man he addressed
himself in breezy fashion thus:
"Yes, I have got back home again

Other Presents for Smokers
Take notice that a man smokes because he en
joys it. Anything you give him in the smoking line
adds so much to his pleasure. As he lapses into re
veries over pipe or cigar, think how frequently the
donor of a pleasing addition to his smoking room is
gratefully remembered. Anything you give in the fol
lowing line will touch him in the right spot.
We especially solicit trade from the ladies who are
looking for suitable gifts for men. Here are a few
