Afew weeks ago, through an advertisement in this paper, we called the attention of our retail trade to the "BRAT TLEBORO" Cushion-Sole Shoe, a Woman Shoe which we had recently had designed and made up with special ref erence to its qualities of comfort and ease. That adver tisement has brought our store a great many customers and a great many inquires by mail, and we are still hear ing from it every day, but although the shoe is sold under a positive guarantee, we have yet to hear of the first case of dissatisfaction. Every woman who puts on one of these shoes, especially if she has tender or sensitive feet, exclaims with pleasure, " How easy it is! " She is surprised, also, to find that a COMFORT shoe can also fit so perfectly and look so well, and she is not long in deciding to give the shoe a trial. ' BRATTLEBORO ' ' Cushion-Sole Shoes require no break ing in, but are easy and comfort-giving from the moment they are put on. They are especially shoes for winter and spring wear, and we unhesitatingly advise our lady custo mers to give them a trial. Price Always $4.00. Shoes ordered by mail way, or money will be We again remind Farmers, Lumbermen, Quarrymen and all outdoor workers, that BALL BAND rubber and felt goods are positively the warmest, the most durable, and the best in every way, and that we carry a complete line of them. Remember, also, that Hood Rubbers and Overs are the standard for excel ence. The Hood "Plymouth" line wear two or three times as long as lighter weights and cost only a few cents more.

The 3 Essential Points of the " Brattleboro" Cushion-Sole Shoe. Feature No. 1. The distinguishing feature of the "Brattleboro" Shoe is that it contains a thick felt pad inner sole of pure, clean white wool, which makes a soft, easy cush ion for the sensitive foot to rest on, keeps out all dampness, and prevents the jar and jolt that tire the feet and wear out the nerves of the whole body. Feature No. 2. Besides this rest-giving inner sole, the leather outer sole is so made as to be peculiarly flexible and yielding, responding to every movement of the foot. It has the finest and softest of upper leathers, a 1 o w common-sense heel, and is hand-sewed. Feature No. 3. The last is built on the natural lines of the foot, so as to relieve the strain at sensitive points. It is full in the waist and over the ball of the foot, where room is most needed, and at the same time it is shapely, graceful and stylish. Here is a combination which gives both comfort and service in a degree which we have never seen put in any other shoe. ':4
