Mr. Randall Murff, one of the
oldest and most highly respected
citizens of the county, died at his

A shoe that is weak in any part does not, under any circum
stances, represent FULL VALUE. Good workmanship and poor
materials, or vice-versa, result in a short-lived shoe. A shoe
must possess a perfect balance of good qualities to be worthy of
consideration. Copeland's shoes for men and women and boys
and girls are the best-balanced shoes on the market today. They
represent one hundred cents on the dollar, and every pair is guar
anteed. Customer's shoes shined free.
