THERE is a big difference in shoes. To a shoe
man the difference is apparent but to the cus
tomer it sometimes is hard to distinguish be
' tween the good and the bad. t A "Welt" shoe is a
good shoe; a "makay" is inferior. We'll be glad to
show vou the difference.
vOur Men's Welts at $3.50 and $4.00

sistance. A dozen of Mrs. Charley C. Grothe's

For a few days past Tbe Herald has
been so crowded with work that we
have not been able to print tbe extra
pages we often print when having an
unusual amount ot news and advertis
ing. We have been trying to secure
additional help and are pleased to an
nounce that' we are succeeding. By
printing The Herald all at home, and
not using the "patent insides" that
most local papers use, we give our
readers much more live news in our
regular eight page edition than is con
tained in most local papers; but here
after1 we will publise twelve and sixteen
pages when the' amount of news and
advertising demands it.
