The explanation of this marvelous growth,
of our great Shoe business is as simple as the
A, B, C to those who know our Shoes, our
Prices, and our Business Methods.
People are coming- here in ever-increasing
numbers because they find out they can obtain
here better and handsomer Shoes at lower prices
than a-nj'where else in Washington.
Months ago, before the tariff went into ef

little prospect of a compromise of the
engineering struggle, and meantime the
trouble in the cotton trade has rejehed a
decisive point, aud next week may seo the
begliuihiR of another great war Involving
operatives, which would paralje the
great tridc of the empire. . The spinners
and wec.cr, will decide ilonduy whether
to submit to a 5 per cent reduction in

exigtneies of the trade demand. The
leaders of the operatives' unions are us

trade. 'J hl meaiib that it would oppohe the
cngineern, who attempted to eurorcc the
eight-hour duy, and nympathlze with the
cotton operatives, who are resiiting a re

as lost, and, dPbpite the uncompromising
attitude of both sides, the men areheeklng

which, it 1b new clear, would destroy the
engineering trade of Great Britain. liven

What woman has not yet got her pair of "Jenness Miller" Shoes?
WAS a bold stroke to run the "Jenness Miller" Hygienic Shoes for S3-5O. We feel
fully repaid for the smaller profit by the tremendous demand and profuse expressions
of satisfaction. The makers said it was Impossible to stick to the best quality vlci
kid and make them up by hand and sell them for $3.50. But we kept after them
and agreed to tise thousands of pairs, and at last succeeded in attaining our end. While the
margin of profit is exceedingly small on a single pair, it is very nearly offset b- the immense
number of pairs we are now selling. It is not surprising that ladies who have been paying
S3.5O for ordinary shoes should prefer the famous "Jenuess Miller" Shoes wSen they can get
them for the same money, is it?
Four styles, lace and button, strictly hand-made, hir-the wide common-sense for tender
feet, and the new round toe for "dress" wear. - m
