Everybody wears shoes at least one size too small, it Is as serted, and with toes too narrow. This gives room for only the great toe to grow and perform its functions, but compresses the other toes until the smallest one is a mere scrap. The foot of man should spread like an ani mal's paw with every step he takes. This is impossible in a shoe which "flts" the foot Walter C. Taylor, editor-in-chief of the Boot and Shoe Recorder, says: The greatest waste in shoe buying is one for which the consumer him self is largely responsible. It comes through the buying of Bhoes which are poorly fitted." - We not only wear our shoes too small and our heels too high, but we allow " faBhion to influence us, and there is - a constant demand for change In style and material; a de mand which the manufacturers supply abundantly." Mr. Taylor says that It would be worth millions, to the trade and to the consumer if this could be righted by a common sense view- of our foot covering. Of course the women are blamed for the greater part of this extravagance, for a dainty toot has long been considered much to be deBired. Gradually shoes have developed into things of beauty mere ly and we buy them with the thought of their appearance and not of their use. In fact,, Americans, as a "fule, do not expect to walk great distances. It seems that the development of the shoemaker's art is in inverse ratio to the development of the foot, for here In America our feet are notori ously undeveloped, and yet America leads the world In the making of shoes. Almost everything else In the way of wearing apparel depends more or less on foreign importations, but America Influences the shoe styles AD.

American supremacy in shoemaking ts due largely to specialisation. Abroad an operative does half a dozen different things; here he per forms one simple process, and here also one factory makes one kind of shoes. If a large manufacturer makes different kinds ot shoes he has a separate factory for each kind. What a sight the modern shoe fac tory would be to the primitive shoe maker of colonial days, who was an Itinerant workman, carried his tools with him and stayed with each family long enough to make up the farmer's supply of home ' tanned leather Into shoes enough to last until his next annual. visit His last was roughly whittled out ot a piece of wood to suit the largest foot In the family, and then pared down for the succes sive sizes. He sat on a low bench, one end ot which was divided Into compartments where his awls, ham mers, knives and rasps were kept, with his pots of paste and blacking, bis palls, thread, linings and buttons, "shoulder sticks" and "rub sticks."

The same type Is still worn by the peoples of Central Asia. India. Japan and China. The Indian moccasin, which extends over the top of the foot but has the sole and main part in one piece. Is one of the best of foot coverings, soft, flexible and durable. Out of a com biftutlon of theBe two' the sole without an upper and the upper without a sole the modern shoe has been evolved. - Monstrosity From the Deep. Venice, Cal.
