agonies born of pain, almost equalling Spanish .tortures.
We speak of you who purchase shoes all too small or too ill shapen
for you. You who go to stores where the science of foot fitting has never
been known and is not being learned. We carry the finest and largest stock
in the country and understand our business. v - irT
