TOMMY'S DIPLOMATIC TACTICS.
How He Induced His Sister to Go to the
Football Game.
"No, Tommy," said his sister, "I'll not
give you 50 cents to pay to see the football
match; you have seen a number of baseball
games during the summer, and I think that
is enough."
Tommy was dejected for a while and kept
quiet, and his 23-year-old sister began to con
tral ulate herself that she had silenced him
f r a time at least, and she would not be

"''Tommy" (mildly).
"An' then Mr. Nicefellow told the waiter
to bring me a glass of soda water, an' asked
m.n if I didn't want some peanuts, an' I said
I didn't mind, an' he bought mo some, an'
just then Buck Ewing made a home run, an'
Mr. Nicefellow said he guessed the Chicagos
couldn't play ball, and he'd rather see a game
of football any day, especially between the
college elevens, an' he said he hoped I would
be at the football games this fall, an' wanted
to know if you liked athletic sports, an' I said 'I
I guessed you did, but you had so many other

"Tommy (hesitatingly), would you like to I
take me to see the game if I buy the tickets?"
"Why, cert."

say anything about their going, and Tommy
moved toward the door. When he got out

Ntw, kind reader, just stop and consider wbht tl e abov- lignifies so far as you are concerned. It
assures you that if you keep on buying shoes bearing no manufacturers' name or fixed retail price stamped
on the soles, you cannot tell what you art, getting and your r 'ailer is probably making you pay double
what your shoes have cost him. Now, can you afford to do ti , while we are protecting you by stmli,ing
our name and the fixed retail price upon the soles of our shoes before they leave our factory so tha.t «ou
cannot be adtle to pay more for your shoes than they are worth ?
Shoes from our celebrated factory are sold by wide-awake retailers in nl panrlet of
the country. We will place them easily within your reach in any State or Territory if you will invest QUQ
