EDITORIAL-MUSINGS. $ j Unwarranted Slioe Prices. 1 The shoemakers are not disposed ita hold out any hope of relief from the present high prices of shoes. In deed, they openly state that the prices are going on up. It would seem to the person who has to buy jfcwo or three pairs of shoes a year Jthat the price had now about reach ed the limit, but the National Boot and Shoe Manufacturers' Association, which recently held a meeting in Uew York, found out that there are till unexplored heights, "wholly fceyond war-time or any other expe rience," to which prices will ascend ascend this winter. Furthermore, '"shoes sold in the spring of 1920 Must bring still higher prices' The shoe wearer, of course, blames ,the shoemaker. He might blame the retail dealer, but the dealer is likely to be known to him, and believed when he explains that he charges Kore for shoes because he has to pay ore for them.. The maker however, je a remote person who can be blamed with some degree of immunity. The Jfcnufacturers, however, are not idly HmfSBIHHfflHiHHlHMC iaaaaasBmBalliidiilSHiit' kAz tr IBk3KcWIwvC5"IBBBJBH !-oBBKB'v?t vBBs & '??BWHIBWMBBBfcL ? A' '4wBBBHHBBlBBBBMy KMk & SBJ Domingo's Pilipino taking the blame. They denounce the present price of shoes as "unwar ranted." The prices of leather and labor are, in their official statement on the subject, "excessive, far be yond any past experience." The ex port trade and the country's prosper ity are likewise blamed. What the makers are afraid of and they have good reason to be is a panicky condition of the market. They advise people not to Umy any more shoes than they have to. They advise dealers to cut down their stocks to the minimum. The price is high enough as it is, but there is no telling where it will go if people lose faith in the trade and begin to buy against an imaginary shoe famine. There is plenty of raw material, but it costs more; and there is plenty of labor, but, as the recent successful strikes among shoe workers indicate, it also costs more. Overworked? Well Rather! Isn't it strange how a word seems to become a fashion, and is worked to a finish? Now "daddy" is the one that seems to be working over time. You've all noticed it. It falls from the mouth of, babies. Certainly from time immemorial baby lips have lisp ed, "da da," and awfully sweet it sounds, too, but in some instances it is almost ludicrous. When the user of the infantile epithet is graying at the temples perhaps, or even the "silver threads" are pretty evenly dispersed upon the poll," "father" seems so much more appropriate, doesn't it? But when one hears "dad dy" from lips of a "back number" who used to say "pa" and "ma," It is queer certainly, like sweet bells jangled out of time," almost. "Dad" sounds good to me. From the mouth of a youngster fresh from college, "dad" is delightful showing a degree of comrade, or companionship equal to that of "the old man," but more respectful. We've all noticed how "wonderful" is overworked. Now this is a "won derful" word surely to express all kinds of excellence in all sorts and conditions of people and things, but hasn't it been worn almost thread-1 bare? "Good-looking" is otintviot- word that is running neck and neck with "wonderful." Just now it is the very top of the mode. One hears of wall naner."

TRAVELING MAN'S ENCE EXBERI- You may learn something from the following by W. H. Ireland, a travel ing salesman of Louisville, Ky. "In the summer of ,1888 I 'had a severe attack of cholera morbus. I gave the hotel porter fifty cents and told him to buy me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy and to take no substitute. I took a double dose of it according to the directions and went to sleep. At five o'clock the' next morning I was called by my or der -and took a train for 4 my next stopping place, a well .man."

In a letter addressed to the Demo crats of Kentucky Ronald C. Oldham, of Winchester, one of the candidates tor the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor in tne recent State primary, does not concede vic tory to W. H. Shanks, of Stanford, whose name will go on the ballots as Democratic nominee for Lieuteant ' possess to the entire Democratic ticket in the November election whether or not I am on that ticket. MULE'S KICK IN NEW DRINK A resident of Carmin, III., has a new drink of such potency that the police, while not sure that there was alcohol in it, knew it had a tremend ous kick, anyway, so they arrested the inventor. ' So far as has been learned the man put a pot on to boil, making up four or five gallons at a time, enough for a day, if too much "company" did not call. The prin cipal ingredients were corn meal, raisins, sugar and a certain kind of acid purchased at the drug stores. This, boiled together, produced a concoction that would make Bacchus crazy. Those who know say one drink would make one talk Chinese fluently; after a second one. could shave a grass hopper wITh a buzz saw, and with a third one could crack hickory. nuts on the forehead. o Dangerous Practice. "Little Willie would hate to see hl mother have to take Hi washing, but there Is no telling what her faculty for religiously taking in his ears every time she washes his face may lend to.

Now it is perpetual peace. r O- ; , ' As to those British automobiles of concrete, will they, run again after they oncegetset ? r " 4 . , " Monday and Tuesday. FEELING BLUE? LIVER LAZY?
