RECENT
1 WRINKLE.
The latest wrinkle In the shoe line in
this part of the country is going to be
Worked by Drennen & Co., the mammoth
general merchants of this city, who do a
big business with the country and labor
trade. They have ordered from the J. B.
Lewis company of Boston, a large con
signment of shoes. Each shoe will be
numbered and with each shoe, corre
spondingly numbered, goes an accident
insurance policy of $100. The customer
pays $3 for a pair of shoes and gets with
it this policy, which guarantees him $100
indemnity if he gets hurt within three
months after the purchase of the shoes,
which are guaranteed to last that time,
so that two birds are killed with one
stone—the purchaser is liable to be out
of shoes and insurance policy about the
same time and thus desire the renewal
of both. The Insurance policies are is
sued by an insurance company, with
whom the J. B. Lewis company has a
contract to that end, and will be directly
responsible for loss on the same. Dren
nen & Co. say they are going to adver
tise the scheme very extensively, and
hope, for the furtherance of trade, that
the first man to buy a pair of shoes will
get hurt, so as to receive the $100 on the
Insurance policy and help the project.
It is decidedly the most novel scheme
ever introduced in this city, although
Birmingham is by no means behind the
win Id in such matters, and bids fair to
