That's all we ask you to do furnish the feet. We will do the
rest, and we will do it well. The oldest inhabitant never saw
shoes selling at such Low Prices as we shall sell them during
this sale. It's like selling the shoe strings and throwing in the
shoes. It's a shoe revelation.
We have stacks of men's fine hand sewed, bench made, shoes that we formerly sold at
$3 to $6.50 a pair. We have divided these shoes into hree lots and cut the prices to
Among the shoes we shall sell at $1.50 are, patent leathers, vici hid and genuine kan
garoo, the cheapest in the lot sold for $3, and most of them sold from $4.85 to $6.50.
The toes of most of these shoes are just a little narrower, and
in some instances a litt'e wider than the popular fancy seems
to desire, but the prices will make them quite the thing.

Reduced from $6.50.

We will forfeit One Trousand Dollars if we fail to produce
the shoes this ad calls for. Put us to the test.
