The bestowal of useless gimcracks upon friends and relatives is usually unappreciated and people are beginning to recognize that such things are money and good intentions thrown away. Give; but give something useful and sensible. Under the head of useful, sensible, practical, sure-to-be-appreciated gifts is a pair of shoes. The popular way of giving them is to present one of our "Shoe Orders" so that the recipient can select the style and fit to suit. There is nothing ordinary about giving shoes. The one who gets an order will usually select a pair of Shoes for dress occasions. SHOES FOR WOMEN Anticipating a big Holiday business we have a splendid assortment of women's shoes. Dainty shapes and leathers for dress and house wear, and stronger and sturdier kinds. SHOES FOR MEN Men, even more than women, are pleased with a practical gift. A pair of dancing pumps, a pair of dress shoes ; or even shoes for ordinary wear, are sure to suit. If he loves horseback riding give him a pair of RIDING LEGGINS We have the largest assortment in the city. It consists of English and American putties, oil grain and cow-hide cowboy leggins, dark tan cap spring leggins, etc. Also: we have fine tramping and outing shoes for men, women and children.

IN OUR TWO STORES I BERETANIA AND FORT AND NO. 30 KING STREET, I NEAR BETHEL, S Holiday Goods Displayed Now Mr. Merrill Talks About Examiner's Vicious Falsehood. C. F. Merrill is back in Honolulu--where he was in thf employ of the I. -I. S. N. Co. for some time last year after a dab at fickle fortune in th. Orient this time coming from San Francisco. He intends going into bus iness here, having material therefor coming in the Alameda. Mr. Merrill is the guest of Captain Dalton at Cas tle Maintop, 10th avenue, Palolo tract. To an Advertiser man he addressed himself in breezy fashion thus: "Yes, I have got back home again after a three months' visit to the burn ed city, and let me tell you that no I sight has ever seemed so grand to my I eyes as did old Diamond Head loom i tag up in the rain this morning. When I left Honolulu I had half a notion to j make my home in California, having i severed my connection with the I. -I. j S. N. Co., but, after three months ot I climbing over tangled up iron, brick i and timbers, backed up by severe cold weather, it was me for the haven 01 rest and perpetual summer, and it's here I am going to stay 'till they blow J that horn.' To make this resolution. more secure, I am going out to the cemetery Monday and buy me a lot. ' I have not said much about Hono- j lulu while away. I have only talked ; about it on two occasions, at my meal I and between meals. Some of my fr iends and even relations didn't speak to me for days at a time. They I said they did not like to interrupt me. At any rate, I know of three parties I have got started for here, or at least they are headed for this way, and w& 1 will pray that they get here before their money fades away. I know they have got some money, for I played several games of poker with them. "Say. you don't happen to know thot R'.ab-sided chump that started that story regarding the sinking of thesa inlands, do you? Well, if it originated in the diminutive think-box of an person down this way, such person should be taken out to some vacant lot and surrounded with large gobs or sadness. "The story itself appeared in the Examiner on the morning before I left San Francisco, and every person who knew me, or even knew that I was about to return home, came to cah on me and tell me that these islands had sunk. But I kept coming just the same and would have kept coming even if I knew that there was nothing sticking above water but the top ot Punchbowl. I did not notice any great change of the coast line as we came in this morning, and I do hope that we won't sink so fast but what there wih be enough of Oahu above water ton Jack London to find when he cornea along, because he is not exactly a coal-oil conflagration on the art ot navigation, and then he may want to buy a shave."
