A SHOE GOSPEL SERMON, Text: "Buy Shoes that Fit, and are Long Enough." SHOE SINS. for the most part the victims have been innocent ones. Mne times out of ten, probably more, it has been a matter of ignorance and hereditary ignorance at that. The children have always been the worst sufferers. Their parents and the shoe dealers have started them wrong and then, because it is a matter of just and naturalpride to have one's feet look trim and neat, the unhappy vic tim, with the aid and connivance of the dealer, has continued the infliction of shoes that cramp the muscles, harass the nerves, and distort the joints, CONFESSION We, as lifelong shoe-sellers, are not claiming that we have al ., Good for thc soul ways been free from the commission 0f these sins of ignorance. What we do claim is that we have learned some very essential things from long experience and observation, and it is these things that we are now telling you. OUR SHOE GOSPEL. all a matter of large shoes. It is a matter of shoes that fit. And our experience convinces us more and more that the fit is mainly a question of proper length. The sin has been that you have been misfitted with shoes so short that your toes have struck against a dead wall as you walked and have had no room for natural movement pressing forward and expanding as the foot moved forward, and then coming to an easy and natural rest as movement stops. PLUMP FEET For tne plump, fleshy foot a shoe that fits snug and tight all around may be, vs. and usually is, the proper thing, but for the lean, muscular foot it is a very LEAN FEET. different proposition. We can do'for you now, in the way of well-fitting shoes, what it would have been impossible to do even a few years ago. For the shoemakers have learned a lot of things about their business, SHOEMAKERS even tne last five years. They no longer try to put all feet into the same HAVE LEARNED mold. They have learned that there are almost as many different styles of THINGS. feet as there are different people, and they are building shoes accordingly. Our stock represents careful selections from the very best of all these styles, and it would be a favor to us to have you, whose feet have always been a'discomfort or a torture, come in and let show you wh,at we have learned about fitting shoesto demonstrate practically our shoe gospel, the two essential points of which are : Let us shbw you what we mean by shoes that fit well and are long enough, and we think you wiU go out of the store pleased, and perhaps surprised, to find that you have such a neat, well-looking foot.
