A shoe is only as good as its worst part and we
are proving to a good many people by the use of the
Regal Buzz-Saw in our store windows that the
worst part of a shoe is pretty sure to be where the
eye cannot detect it and it is likely to be one of
those hidden parts which should, stand for long
wear and shape-retention.
Some of the weak spots of shoes which are merely
good-looking weak spots which cannot easily be
detected before purchase are poor innersoles, which
no consumer investigates; poor outersoles, which
are concealed beneath paint and finish; poor lasting,
which does not take the stretch out of leather ; poor
stitching, which cuts partially through both welt and
Such shoes are made to sell, not to wear. f
Direct responsibility of tanner and manufacturer
to the wearer is the only protection against such
Regals are made in the Regal factory, from leather
produced exclusively for Regal shoes, and they are
sold only from the 114 Regal shoe stores and sold
at the wholesale price.
We are thus directly responsible to you for any
hidden fault, and we therefore guard against such
faults by using the materials of $6 shoes in every
pair of Regals.
The "Window of the Sole" proves before you
buy that the particular Regal shoe that you are try
ing on is built with genuine live oak-bark-tanned

ettiF 'V until now you have cood reasons to be
suspicious of any shoe offered you at the same price as last year and
a satisfactory explanation should be demanded. We maintained our uni
form $3.50 price for all Resate as lone as possible even sacrificing entirely
on certain Regal syles the one small, fair Regal profit, in the hope that
the cost of materials would ultimately decrease to a normal point; but
there is now no apparent likelihood of that outcome, and consequently
there has been just one of two things for us to do: eitner to stop making
some lines of Regal shoes or else charge a price increased sufficiently to
balance their increased cost. From the very beginning we have consist
ently built into every pair of Regal shoes the best materials suited to
thai particular style and. we shall never change that policy.
We guarantee that in any Regal $3.50 model yotr will get absolutely the
best materials suited to that style.

violation of two principles of every
sound discount policy. namely, the
regulation of the bank rate.
Taking up the question of the char
acter of the assets of the Swiss note
time Investments steadily gained over
those for short terms until the ratio
of short-time investments to the total
decreased from 35.73 percent in 1885 to
24.79 percent in 1S95.
These conditions of underbidding for
graph of Dr. Landmann. He declares in
his preface that the principle, which
was recognized in theory long ago, that
t2ie system of free 'banking, while suit
ed to the earlj stages, does not meet
the requirements of the advanced and
matured state of the bank-note system,
worked its way to the front all along
the line in the course of the second half
of the nineteenth century in actual
legislation; nor is there the slightest in
dication of a reaction from this view."
The first Swiss banks of issue were
established independently and without
federal supervision. Agreements to
check abuses and to secure the uniform
circulation and redemption of the notes
were made in 1862, 1876 and 1SS2, the
latter being enforced by a general
banking law. One of the requirements
of the law was a reserve of 40 percent
In specia against note issues, which,
however, could not be used for any
other business of the bank, and was
held essentiallj as a guaranty of ultl2
mate solvency. The banks were al
lowed to Issue notes to twice the
amount of their capital, which had the
healthy effect of causing some expan
sion of capital to cover enlarged note
The Swiss banks of issue being coiri
peled to pay taxes not on the amount
of the effective circulation, but on the
total of the authorized issue, they were
naturally disposed to enlarge the cir
culation as much as possible, as they
had to pay on the total of the author
ized issue anyway, and leaving a part
of this sum idle would have meant a
direct loss to them. The banks had to
keep 40 percent of their circulation In
specie in their vaults; and if, for in
stance, 20 percent of a bank's issue
i. e.. Its authorized issue were not in
circulation at all, only 40 percent of ira
issue would have been profitably in
vested, which would have resulted "in a
profit of about 2 to 2A percent of the
issue. The bank having, to pay six
tenths of 1 percent of the entire author
ized issue to the cantons and one-tenth
of 1 percent to the confederation, this
would make, roughlj', 1 percent, which,
taken off the profit above shown, would
leave a profit of only 1 to 1 percent.
It will therefore be readily understood
that all the banks of issue endeavored
to put their entire authorized issue on
the market, -so that every taxable note
by competition in discount rates which
operated adversely to the maintenance
of favorable exchange conditions with
France and other countries. Each bank
ing center published its own rate of
discount, and it happened not infre
quently that one bank lowered its rate
of discount while another raised it at
the same time.
It was not until the year 1S93 that 2S
of the then existing 35 banks decided
"to keep the discount rate at an appro
priate level in order to protect the
stocks of cash in the country," and a
committee, consisting of five of the
largest banks, was appointed to deal
with the question of fixing a genera!
official discount rate which should
serve as a basis for all discount transac
tions. With the Introduction of this
uniform and official discount rate there
set In a decided tendency toward the
betterment of conditions. Very soon,
however, this agreement proved inade
quate. A new agrement contained the pro
viso that each particular bank was only
obligated to maintain this minimum
limit "as far as possible," and that It
had the right to discount up to one
fourth of 1 percent below .the fixed
minimum rate bank acceptances, or
first-class commercial papers, or for the
purpose of keeping its holdings of bills
up to the amount prescribed by it3 rules
The position of those banks that re
mained faithful to the agreement be
came so difficult that a new revision
the regulations was decided upon,
which should give the various banKS
greater freedom of action. This plan
of compromise was, however, frustrated
by a large number of banks showing
their dislike of the agreement, and in
the general meeting of the banks of
Issue on Nov. 23, 1901, the stipulations
respecting the minimum rate of dia
court were entirely abolished, and the
old state of freedom from all restriction
was thun reestablished.
Another attempt, in 1905. to bring
about cooperation secured the assent of
only 20 of the 36 banks, and by the
law of Oct. 6 of that year Switzerland
finally sought refuge from the discord
of independent banks of issue without
common leadership, in the system of a
