A DELAY OF A FEW DAYS IS IMPORTANT TO YOU,;
MR. SHOE BUYER!
Oar present prices cannot last much longer, every time we buy new goods there is a noticeable increase in price over our last purchase of the same goods. We are endeavoring to.
keep the prices stationary but in spite of our efforts the increase is inevitable. Every train brings us new geeds and at present we can save you from 50c to $1.00 on every purchase. A
saying of that kind would be unusual even when conditions are normal, but at this time it is marvelous and cannot last. We have everything in the shoe line that you can possibly think
of and are anxious to show them to you at any time. We fill mail orders promptly.

THE MODERN ROMANCE OF ELECTRICITY PUTS THE FABLE OF
ANTIQUITY INTO THE SHADE
FROM DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
Electricity, operating in many ways, has created conifort-factcis that ha e cai riccl
the world out of the Darkness of Drudgery into the l ight of Convenience.
It haSiiriore than any other agency, enhanced the comfort, health and happiness
CONSIDER ITS WONDERS
The same current, carried by simple little wires, serves us with light, heat or
power, It carries our burdens; it transports us from place to place. It lights our
homes, stores and streets, and thus protects us against the terrors that thrive in dark
ness. Electricity does our sewing, cooking, washing and ironing. It cleans the home,
and keeps it free from dirt and germs. It supplies warmth in winter and cool ccmfoit
It links together the peoples of the world by the wireless, the cable, the telegraph
and telephone, making one huge family of us all.
Electricity enters into the manufacture of practically all cur necessities, making
them cheaper and better than would be possible by any other means.
Electricity finds no duty too Heavy, nor any task too delicate. With wcr.de rful
adaptability, always under control, it is powerful enough to drive ponderous machinery,
gentle enough to operate an electric fan, or to warm the baby's bottle.
Whatever Electricity does, it does safely silently-cleanly-speedily- thoroughly.
Electricity is always at hand. It obeys instantly. It never blecu-i tir tires
A twitch of a switch, or a touch of a button, is all the effort required tocommand
this willing servant this modern genie to do your work.
if you will, what would happen if Electricity were suddenly eliminated.
The wheels of commerce would be halted. Transportation would ctase. We
would be in darkness.
Without telegraph, cable or wireless, we would be cut off from the outside world.
Without the telephone, we would again be deaf and dumb to all absent ones. Progress
and Prosperity would suddenly be checked.
.' ELECTRICITY IS FOR ALL
With all of its wonderful advantages. Kleetricity, and the appliances through which it operate.-,
' ' are not luxuries.
The -oct of the appliances, and of the current to operate them, is low. And what time and lal or
- they save; wlntt convenience and onifort they hring!
of the service Electricity is rendering, the electricity industry, and other Kreat industries co-upcratinK
-with it, decided to dedicate the week of December 2 to 9, 1916, to a national celebration to be known
' as AMEHICA'S ELECTRICAL WEEJK.
Join the nation in this celebration of electrical progress. -
