Blffst Redaction In the I'rlee of Boot
and Shoe. Ever Offered In Ottawa.
John Fee'hey has a stock of men's boots,
shoes, rubbers and overshoes which he will
sell at an average of 50 cents cheaper than
elsewhere. His numerous friends in Ottawa
and vicinity will testify to this fact. Men's
good kip boots $2.60, $3 and 3.60. Last
year these goods were sold at 60 cents more
per pair. Shoes and summer goods in the
same proportion.
Mr. Feeuey's long experience and good
ju Igment as a buyer gives him considerable
advantage over others in the selection of
stock and is therefore the main reason for his
ability to sell at low prices, together with his
small expenses in conducting bis business.

of the rope. The bull's horns caught him

would have been inevitable The animal
