its own where guaranteed all leather
shoes for men, women and children
are sold at a profit of 10 per cent
above the wholesale price.
A child's shoe costs $2.30 or
82.86; a girl's school shoe, $3.13;
women's shoes, either for working or
for dressy occasions, $3.70 and a
man's shoe, $4.25.
"Indeed, no mother need bo
afihamed to put any of those shoes on
her children's feet," remarked a

they had to be resoled. She bought
a pair of our shoes at $2.85 and said
they lasted five weeks
