CUT YOUR SHOE BILLS
WITH NEOLIN SOLES
"The answer to the problem of shoe
wear lies in the use of Ncolin Soles"
so says II. L. Evans of Steubenville,
"For five months," says Mr.Evans,"I
have been wearing the same pair of
Neolin-soled shoes at my work at the
La Ielle Iron Works and they are
good for two months more wear. As
my work takes me to all parts of the
mill daily where I have to walk over
cinders, slag, etc., it. is simply out of
the question to buy anything else to
take the place of Neolin Soles."
You too-and your whole famil 'will
find Neolin-soled shoes wear I g and
so save money. You can get t m in the
styles you like at almost an good shoe
store. And any repairtu will re-sole
your worn shoes with colin Soles
