4275 miles is the distance walked by
H. M. Foreman on one pair of Neelin
Soles. Mr. Foreman, who is a postman
in Alkntown. Pa.t says "The shoes with
NeSlin Soles gave me continuous serv
ice for 9 months, during which time
I averaged 18 miles a day. Ordinary
soles last me about one month."
If you are hard on shoes, follow Mr.
Foreman's example and buy them with
"Mi;n 5Vli. The soles are created
by Science to be especially tough and
wear a long time, and so cut your shoe
bills down. Good shoe stores carry
them in many styles for men, women,

She noticed that the door of her

roof of the apartment bouse.
Meanwhile Detectives Donahune
and Devanay, of the West Sixty

Miss Gamble's alarm, took up the
stairs. Near the top flight, the burg

he had disappeared. Then waited,

He flung a soda bottle at Walters

NEW YORK, May 15. Col. William
Hayward, commander of the old Fif

signed by Judge Rosalsky, in general
sessions yesterday, to defend John
Tracy, twenty-five, charged with the
murder of James Savage on April 14.
"Are you satisfied with your coun
sel?" Judge Rosalsky asked.
"Yes," said Tracy.
"Do you know who Colonel Hay-
ward is?" was the next question.
"No," replied the prisoner.
"Then you ought to get the electric
chair," smiled Judge Rosalsky.
"Colonel Hayward Is not only a
mighty good lawyer, but one of the
greatest horocs of thc world war."
Savage was killed when Tracy, fool
ing with an old pistol, told friends
standing near to watch him "scare
this guy." The "unloaded weapon"
ran true to form. No date for the
trial has been set.

been separated from her husband for
seven months. Soon after the sep
