Phlla delphla Press, BALL BAND Keep IN the The " BALL BAND" trademark on Wool Boots, Socks, Rubber Boots, Rubber Shoes, and Arctics is a guaranty of superior quality. They give more comfort.and longer service than any other make. The " BALL BAND" is the only all-knit wool boot on the market, and the Rubbers are made from the highest grade rubber. They are not the product of a trust. Insiston getting the " BALL BAND" goods and you are sure of getting the best. A Few Things that Every Wearer of Rubber Boots and Shoes Should Know. 1. IMPORTANCE OF FITTING RUBBERS PROP ERLY. Howpvcr good the quality or porfcct thc stylo, Hubbcr fchocs wlll not glve satlsfactory fttsrvlpt" lf they' are not proporly flttod to tho leather shoes over whlcli they aru Intend ed to be worn. Noltlier can Hubber IJoots or I-uinbt'nnen's Shoes be expected to wear well If they are not proporly fltted. Always fit boots as small as they can be worn wlth comfort. It is imposslble to make a boot that will not break in the foot if lt is worn too large. Fit them small and thus avold wrinkles and insure good servlce, 2. GREASE AND OIL VERY INJURIOUS, Do not nllow Brcase, oll or anlmal fat to come In con tact wlth rubber gootls, as It wlll speedlly ilecom pose tlie best rubber that can be protluced. Even inllk eontalns tnough grease to Injure rubber boots ;uul shoes. 3. STRONG SUNLIGHT IS INJURIOUS. Rub ber boots and shoes when not belng worn should al ways be kept away from the alr as mucb as pos slble, and in a cool ilark place, as strong sunllght and dry hot air wlll soon cause even the bost rubber to vra k. especlally where lt ls wrlnkled or tho otit sicle surface of the rubber Is under a constant strain. 4. HEAT IS FATAL. Remember that heat un bearable to the hand Is niore than enough to des troy all the valuo and wearlng iiualltles of good rub ber boots and fhoes. When you warm your feet before tho 11 re or radiator wlth your rubbers on. by the titne your feet feel the warmth the rubbers are usually cooked to death. 5. RUBBERS TEAR EASILY. This is true of cloth, paper and varlous other things, but few good besldes rubber have such great tensile strength and yet wlll tear so easlly nfter a rent ls once made. j Now we trust we have made our position perfectly clear to everyone. We shall , continue the same general policy that we have maintained for the past 1 8 ' years. We shall try to sell the very best goods that we can buy, and if they are not i right in every way we want to make them so. In fact, we do not expect custom ers to trade with us unless we can give them 1 OO cents of value for every dollar they pay us. We speak of these things because we want to have a perfect un derstanding with the trade, and we feel that all our customers, from their own experi ! ence, will bear out our position in this matter.

BONE FOOD Soft and crooked bones mean bad feeding. Call the disease rickets if you want to. The growing child must eat the right food for growth. Bones must have bone food, blood must have blood food and so on through the list. Scott's Emulsion is the right treatment for soft bones in children. Littledoses every day give the stiffness and shape that healthy bones should have. Bow legs become straighter, loose joints grow stronger and firmness comes to the soft heads. Wrong food caused the trouble. Rightfood will cure it. In thousands of cases Scott's Emulsion has proven to be the right food for soft bones in childhood. Send for free sample.

Hubber boots and shoes made wlth duck will of cotirse reslst snags, but a rubber boot or shoo "proof agalnsj snags" is an utter Impos siblllty, because there are snags tough and sharp enough to plerce and tear any rubber loot or shoe that can be nuule. 7. GUARANTEE. We guarantee our goods only agalnst nianufacttirlng Imperfectlons. We do not guarantee them not to wcar put. We do not guaran tee our goods agalnst the effects of careless flttlng, agalnst abuse, agalnst belng scorched, sunburned, in jured by oll or grease, torn, brokon, cut, snagged, elmfed. havlng holes punched ln them, or agalnst the niany slmllar accldents that can happen to rubber boots and shoes after leavlng our hands. In other words we are willlng and anxlous to make good what is our fault, but we will not stand the carelessness or the faults of others-. Our guarantee to you Is that our llrst quality rubbers are ns good as any flrst quality rubbers on the market, and that our second quality are as good as any second quality. Thls, together wlth our reputation for staniling back of our goods-, ought to satlsfy any reasonablo person. We flnd from exiK'rience that lt Is not a good Idea for any retall merchant to enter Into a contract wlth cus tomers as to just how long certaln gootls will wear, becauue nothing Is tnken advantage of more these ilays than a specific guarantee. 8. WE DO GUARANTEE our rubber goods to be the very best brands on the market today, and if they are not just what they should be in every par ticular we not only deslre but WE INSIST on thelr belng brought back to us, and if there is any fault or Imperfectlon in the goods we propose to make it entirely satlsfactory.

That the llcense law Is not to bo used as an opportunity to ruln the llves of young boys, and In consequence, the homes from whlch they come, at least In Brattleboro, if the commlssloners can prevent lt, N to me a source of deep grat-IIK-atlon, and I hope tho Interprctntlon whlch they have put upon the law may be supported by the hlgher courts. to whlch I suppose tho questlon will go. I shall watch the later developments wlth I Interest. I l have felt Incllned to wrlte a note j to the commlssloners dlrect, but havo . not done so. though they deserve to know that tlielr action has met the np I proval of inany. wp.o are a long way I trom Vermont, but who love Its old hllls and valleys and Its past, and who cher I Ish the hope that It shall continue the record whlch has already made many of us glad to own that boneath her skles wo llrst saw the llght. and under tho In tluence of her homes, schools and other ln.-liUitlons. recelvod the lmpress of our carly years.
