W. L. DOUGLAS
Boys* Shoes, $2.00 & $2.50
W. L. Douglas shoes are the lowest
price, quality considered, in the world.
Their excellent style, easy fitting and
long wearing qualities excel those of
other makes. If you have been paying
high prices foryour shoes, the next time
you need a pair gi ve W. L. Douglas shoeu
? trial. You can save money on your
foot wear and get shoes that nre just as
good in every way as those that havo
been costing you higher prices.
If you could visit our large factories
at Brockton, Mass.,and see for yourself
how carefully W.L. Douglas shoes are
made, you would then understand why
they hold their shape, fit better and
wear longer than other makes.
