It is a frequent sight in Robertson's shoe store to see a whole family being fitted out with shoes. Driving in from some neighboring town the- head of the family makes his way at once to Robert son's. Beginning with the baby and tak ing each one in turn up to himself and wife, he soon has the entire family well fitted with reliable footwear, and when reaching home that night and figuring up his expenditures and the money he has saved on each pair of shoes bought, he finds that the day has been one of the most profitable in the year for him, be lieving in the maxim that "a penny sav ed is a penny earned."
