If you go down to the bottom of any great business
you will find that the whole secret of low prices lies
in this one fact:—the magnitude of the business!
That explains how women can buy here “Queen
Quality” shoes for $3.50. The price is based wholly
on the manufacturer’s vast resources and his ability
to estimate on one million pairs at one calculation.

THE N. & W.
The Williamson, \V. V«., Knter
pri e says of N. A- W Improvements
in that city:
“The work of enlarging the Wil
liamson yards is progressing apace,
and a large force of hand is em- :
ployed at this work.
"The X. & W. people here would
ho glad to have a good deal more of
competent labor could It. be obtained
At least $125,000.00 will be expend
ed by the railroad on the improve
ment; now under way. The result
will be to give Williamson the best
yard on the sy«t 'ni which dlstlnc
i tion is practically enjoyed today.
“Mr. Cunningham, the efficient
foreman, has recently added a new
fire station to hi eri s and Is now
ready for any possible fire that may
| occur on the yards."
THE OBJECT OF
A Bluefield Man Explains
'Wliat The Laymen Are
Trying to Accomplish—
The Bristol Convention.
A pominent Laymen who has tak
lmi great interest in the Laymens
movement was asked to express in
his own language the object and
scope of the work undertaken.
“The work of the Laymens move
ment L primarily educational, Pres
ent contributions for church purpo
se-. are fully abreast with, ir indeed
they do not exceed the fund of in
formation now passed by the great
majority and the onthusla in result
ing therefrom. What the people at
large need to know is the incalcu
lable good which has been and is
being accomplished with the almost
insignificant amount passing through
•hurch channels and the infinite op
portunity for enlarging upon tho^c
results a thousand fold* if only men
ind morn* are made available. The
men and money will be forth com
ing as a great f ree will offering when
knowledge of the church’s larger
needs takes firm hold upon the min l"
nud hearts of business men the men
with pocket hooks as well as with
minds and hearts. This campaign
of education should not extend over
n period or i»."» years. No. no! Too
