condition. At this rate the telegraph
poles looked like so many fence rails
and no doubt ths railway company
will be given axlean bill ot health.

The chill north winds, the rain and the snow
call for good shoes or doctor bills. Good shoes are
much cheaper than doctor bills, especially so if
you get a pair of our Peters' Diamond Brands.
They're made from
by expert shoemakers and are sewed with strong
waxed linen or silk thread. The soles are cork
filled, thus enabling the shoes to keep the feet
warm and dry,
