night in Old Selkirk hall when the
brethren of Selkirk Lod>^e and visiting brethren assembled to celebrate
the 25th anniversary of Selkirk Lodge
No. 12, I.O.O.F. Much credit is due
to thc committee who had the affair
in hand. The ball was beautifully decorated for tbe occasion in tbe colors
of the order. Special notices in tho
form of neat souvenir cards ,had been
sent out to all the members of the
lodge and to the viBiting brethren iu
Revelstoke, to either appear personally and answer to the roll call or
send an excuse for not being present,

meeting were over, tea and coffee,
sandwiches, cake and ice crram were
served by H. Manning, assisted by
the committee in charge.
After having partaken of all the
good things provided, the remainder
of the ivening was spent In Bongs,
speeches, stories and recitations given by the "Old Time" members whicb
were much enjoyed. The rendering of
a recitation by Robert Tapping written aud composed by himself dealing
with the doings of the "Old Timers"
ol Kevelstoke since lv8*>, and bis solo

First Red Cross lea
is Complete Success
Mrs. McCleneghan wus tbe hostess
nt tbe initial tea given by the local
branch of the Canadian Red Cross
society. At her home on McKenzio
avenue, on Saturduy afternoon last.
Thc afternoon was an ideal one and
society turned out en masBe to show
its interest in the worthy cause and
appreciation of Mrs. McCleneghan'a
kindness in inaugurating this sys
tern of raising money for this cause.
The spacious rooms of the McCleneghan home never looked more attractive tfian on tbis occasion. With an
abundance of spring blooms in every
avalla'hle corner and an ever moving
and changing crowd of ladies in freBb
spring toilettes.
Mrs. McCleneghan was assisted in
receiving her guests by Mrs. S.G.
Robbins, Mrs. W. J. Coulthard and
Mrs. H. H. McVity. In thc dining
room where tea was poured by Mrs.
T. Kilpatrick and Mrs. G.S. McCarter, the wants of tbe visitors were
ably and charmingly attended to by
the Misses Hyatt and Urquhart.
To augument the proceeds a culinary table had been .provided nnd at
the beginning of the afternoon this

the good things donated, but beforo
half the afternoon bad passed it

article hnving found a purchaser. The
culinary department was in charge of
Mrs. AtUns. Mrs Wallace. Mrs.
Downs and Mrs. Ernest H.S. MceLoan.

ELECTION IS
POSTPONED
King's Printer Unable to Compile New  Lists in
Time
Victoriu B. C, March 11.—The intricate task of preparing new voters'
listn to comply w*ith the new Redistribution meusure—which increases
the membership from 42 to 47, be
Bides subdividing a number of con-
etituencies—yesterday imposed upon
the provincial government the obliga
tion to poBtpone the date of the general election beyond the time which
had been tentatively set, April 10. In
due course the new date will be made
public. Fortunately, the order-in-
council dissolving tbe legislature had
not yet been signed by His Honor
jthe Lieutenant-Governor, when this
matter was directed to the attention
of the authorities by thc King's Prin-
| ter and other section officials, so
.that the status quo prior to the prorogation of the House on Saturday
last, is preserved.
I Sir Richard McBride, in making
this announcement last night, mado
it clear thnt tbe alteration in tho
plan of action for an appeal to the
! people was due solely and entirely to
: the necessity of meeting a new situation which had developed as a result
of the enactment of the Redistribution Bill. The government's inability
ito promptly get proclamations nnd
.accurate voters' lists in the hands of
! authorized agents in thc outlying
j constituencies, as well as the large
;amount of additional work imposed
lupon the printing stafl, mnde it imperative that the date for polling bo
deferred.
An unique feature in thc form of a
summer local ski tournament will bc
held in May at the top of Mount Revelstoke. This wus decided at the

The linancial statement showed a
deficit of $14.06. W. A. Smythe oliered to put on special pictures in the
near future and to give thc Ski club
a percentage of the receipts. Tbe
new jump located by S. Iverson is
being put in shape and from thje jump
to the level thc distance is 260 feet
giving sufficient space to break any
record.

year are: S. Halverson, president (reelected)     J.  A.   Stone  vice-president;
iB. R. Atkins, recording secretary; 0,

captain and Oscar Anderson second
captain.  The above    officers together
! witb tive other members to be elected
by thc president will form the board
of directors.
The following were elected honorary
members: T. Iverson, Grant Hall, P,

101 members, 6U of whom were at
the meeting. After the mating re-
frenhments were served    and  dancing

and  the    Scotch  Reserves   took   the
floor at 7.30, and all the way through
thc  Frenchmen showed superior   skill
in the game.  Result of first  game 21
to   10.     In the     second      game,  the
Scotchmen seemed rather discouraged,
ub they fa'iled to come back to   their
regular standard of play,  and     went
down  to defeat    again  21  to 1 .     It
might    be remarked, however,     that
the  Frenchmen    were  playing  a  full
six  man  team against   only   five   men
on  the Scotchmen* Hide.
I    The next  game     scheduled for 8.15

"Nelsou Liberal assoeiat'ion and in
Revelstoke by Mr. A. McRae, hut on
what grounds Mr. Anstie claims to
be a Liberal it would be, Interesting
to  discover.
The fundamental difference between
the  Liberal  and  Conservative parties
MR. BREWSTER'S MANIFESTO
Mr. Parker Williams, loader of the
opposition, has not yet issued n
manifesto, but Mr. H.C. Brewster,
lender of the Liberals iu BritiBh Columbia, has uttered his battle cry. It
it pleases the party which he is supposed to lead, his followers must   be
is in regard to tho tariff.    The Con
,„,       easily satistied.  That  its  perusal  wl'd
servatives  believe in protection.   The
Liberals regard protection ns an
abomination. SpeaWlng in Winnipeg
bit Wilfrid Laurier declared that the
Liberal policy was "Krce Trade as
they have it In England." Other Liberal leaders hnve defined thc policy
as "Tarifl for 'Revenue only."
Where does Mr. Anstie stand on
this question? He is an extreme protectionist. He denounces the Conservative party, not because its policy
is protection, but because the protection afforded by the Conservative
tariff is not still higher, and nt the
tame time he otters himself as the
candidate ol the Liberal party, the
party whose platform embraces "free
trade us they have it in England"
and   anathematizes  protection.
Already Mr. Anst'ie has fallen foul
of tbe Liberal leaders for tbeir adherence to the traditional policy of
their party, and has made plain the
great, gulf fixed between his own policy and that of the party whose BUp-
port he is soliciting. During the present session the Borden government
bus increased the protection enjoyed
by the lumber industry and on that
account h-s be?n roundly denounced
by Hon. Prank Oliver, ex-ministei ol
the interior and Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
representative in the west, Mr. Oliver
frankly proclaimed the attitude of
the Liberal party toward the lumber
industry of British Columbia. He
declared that the increased protec
tion was "unjustified md unwarranted" and for the benefit of an Indus
try that "bus bo claim upon the con
Bideration of this country from anv
point     of     view."       Mr.    Mist:     I

of t ty
offering I lidal
\■   • res I ■ fair to
induce any unprejudiced observer to
prefer what he offers to the record
and future policy of thc McBride
government  is highly improbable.
As a mutter of fact, Mr. Brew-
Bter'S manifesto otters nothing and
is hardly more than a tirade of abuse
from the opening statement thnt the
government is making a "Vain effort to'steal anew lease of power"
to its concluding scold about "general moral debility" and the well
worn phrase about "smashing the machine."
In the course of his abuse of the
McBride government Mr. Hrew«ter
takes time to discuss the Agricultural Act. He admits that the act so
far as it provides aid for agricultural development is economically sound,
and claims that the measure was
stolen from the Liberals. When it is
remembered that the commission upon whose report thc measure is bas
ed was appoint 'd B year and a hali
...o and that the drafting of thc he-it
possible act bus occupied the att n
tion of thc    government     tor manj
months  the claim that  it is more       ,
Liberal than a Conservative measui
looks Bomewhat thin.

AN HISTORICAL REPETITION
The provincial election campaign
situation iu Vancouver district seems
by tbe Liberal press and the statements of the leaders of the Opposition to be much thc same as before
the election three years ago, says the
Vancouver News Advertiser, We read
tho same accounts of dissensions in
the government ranks, of disputes
over candidatures In all the Lower
Mainland ridings; „of independent Conservatives, formerly of vast influence
in the party, threatening to oppose
government candidates; of trouble in
the cabinet; of impending resignations, and of general, revolt among
thc disregarded and disgusted rank
and file, A« against thib we also read
that the Liberals are full of enthusiasm, so that they almost spill over;
Bo united that wild horses, if they
were available, could not pull them
apart, ready to murch with shoulders
in contact straight to triumph. So
it was before the last election, as we
learn on the same authority. On the
whole, therefore, we may fairly expect the same kind of Liberal victory as thnt of March 2'<, 1912, with
fully as many Liberal members in the
next legislature us were returned for
thc lute House.
Revelstoke muy congratulate itself
that in Hon. Thomas Taylor and Dr.
Sutherland it has two worthy candidates und honorable opponents, who
may be expected to conduct a campaign based on public policy and free
from abuse und petty personalities.

THK RECENT TORONTO VERDICT
Edmonton Journal: The Journal
bas beeu inundated with letters discussing the verdict in tbe recent To
roneo murder case whore a younu servant girl was acquitted after shooting her employer, of whom Bhe waB
afraid. Some sympathize With her
very strongly and uphold thc verdict, while .others look , upon it as a
miscarriage of justice. The editor
cannot see that nny good would be
c'ono by using his columns dor such a
controversy. There Ir something to
bc suid oil both sideB. The fact tbat
the girl wus proven to huve lived a
decent life told greatly in her favor.
Hut we cannot agres for a moment
with some of our correspondents who
claim that justice was not open to
her for any wrong done her nnd that,
she was warranted In taking the law
into her own hands. We have not
come to that pass > in this country

so-called "unwritten code" iB full of

road or even a trail, and put a band

Make ornamental walks onn the Bide

There's ,he secret of success.

of tbc demagogue, an appea'l to
ignorance from which it would have
been well to refrain, The sume nuiy

down the estimates the moment, thu
Hrst sign of hard times 'appeared .before the wur, they would huve been
denounced, we may be sure, for
hastening the collapse by reducing
employment. Since then, however,
.they have economised hut are in no

Scenes   in   French  City
Close to Front
Capt. J. Cameron Wilson, M.D., a
Bon of tbe late ex-Mayor Dr. Johu D.
Wilson of London, Out., who enlisted
with the A.M.C. in the brst Canadian
contingent and who lor the past
couple of months bus hud the pro-
loundly interesting experience oJ a
doctor in No, 2 Canadian General
hospital, at Boulogne base, in France
very close to the firing line, has written to his mother one of the most
interesting letters ori life in thut place
that has yet reached this country.
Capt. Wilson in splendid literary
style describes the scene in a most
lucid manner. The epistle follows
Boulogne   Described
"Boulogne, France, Feb. Ti. 1915.
Dear  Moth'T,—Ab  usual,   1  am    be
hind with my    correspondence,     but
take ever the thought for the     deed
and believe thnt I am    thinking     nl
ways of you all in God's country. For
the  last two  months,  with the     exception of a few dayB, I huve been in
Boulogue.      Did you ever   visit      this
quaint  old   French town in  your travels'' Vou would not recognize it now,
for  war  haB brought     many   changes.
Imagine yourself  I  tiding ut the   pier
today. One no longer sees the smiling
crowd  of  fisher folk    upon the quay;
gone are the gi ndarmes, and in their
place the 'inevitable khnki of the Brit
ish army,  the Red (vobs nurses with
their  attractive  Uniforms,  the     convalescing soldiers taking  the air under  the   watchful      oye .-mil      guiding
hand of some Comrade,    The custom
house no louger servs itB otticial purpose,  but it  now  stacked  with stret
chers for the carrying of thc wounded. The laides' room is a bullet for
tbe soldiers.
All Ambulances,
"There arc uo cabs to meet the traveler. Tbe motor ambulance is as
characteristic a vehicle ol Boulogne
today as the hansom cab wub of Loudon 15 years, ago, or as the gondola
is ol Venice. One may see dozens ol
these conveyances iu the coucbo of a
morning, driving in all directions,
uot on pleasure bent, but performing
quickly und efficiently tho stern tusk
of conveying the wounded soldiers
iroin the ambulance trains te their
destination nt the various hospitals,
'Another interesting vehicle Is the
London motor bus, transported
'across the channel; but no longer recognized ns such; its windows boarded UP, changed to a dull gray color
I by the painter's brush, und splotch
id here and there, uud in many cases
'almOBO conii>let"ly covered witb tbe
mud from the war bioken roads ol
France. The conductor no longer nskB
you for your penny. The pluce ofthe
comfortable looking pusBongors returning from their daily work is
taken by the khaki-clad BritiBh pllie
ers returning to the front from a few
duys'  well-earned  leave.
A Oreat Change,
"Yes,   it is  greatly    changed,      this
Boulogne, so popular in the summer
season with the tired out city iniiii
who comes to join his family for a
week-end rest, so popular with the
| American tourist, who loves to stand
cm the spot wh"re Napoleon stood
more than a hundred years ago, within the shadow of the forest ot Arde-
lot, where he had concentrated bis
Grande Annie for the invasion of
England. One can readily imagine the
■Man of Destiny' ns he stood there
gazing with longing eyes at the gray,
grim, unattainable coast across the
channel.
"But no longer is Boulogne thc resort of the tourist and the'   pleasure
seeker. War huB changed ull things. ' see men In the prime of life struck

Hotels Are Hospitals.
"All tbe best hotels are now hospitals. The KolKestone, the Hotel de

X-ray installation is a necessary part
of the complement Of every general

under the stress ol wurfure much
original work bus been done in tbis

"The Casino,  in  times of peace the
center of gaiety and    frivolity,     the
rendezvous of the pleasure seeker aud
| the gambler,  has  heeen converted    iu-
t,, a wonderful hospital and is    perhaps serving a better purpose     than
of yore. The cafe restaurant haa been
converted into a large wurd, containing about 100 beds. The bur is uow a

The Influence of Tdusic
By OSCAR   LUNDKI.L
The fallowing interesting essay is
by Oscar    Lundell;      a    High  scnool
pupil.
In order to bring this subject more
explloltely before you. 1 w'.itl divido
it into two distinct heads.
(1)   The influence  of  rag-time.
(J)   The Influence ol classical tniiHic.
"The Influence  of  Hug-time."
It would not be out of pIlaCB, perhaps, to give a definition of the so
tailed music known ns Rug-time. A
rag is a form af sincoputioiu in a
cadence which is naturally pleaalng
to thc ear. This raggy motion Is
achieved , liy different methods, such
;is, tied notes, dots and the common
practise of working in a greater
number of notes m the treble than
in the bass. thus making umsiual
time. True sincopation is hy no
means rag-time, for in the Clasalce
•we tind it used by the greatest com
posers.
Rag-time to any extent is only the
product of the last generation covering, 1 should say, from 25 to Uu
years, since the dnemetograph bus
become a popular and pulilic pastime
the rag-time music is In great demand—and why*'—The reason which
would naturally follow would lie that
it is p'leasini; to the average theatre
»;oer, because of its catchy airs,
thumped out time and general
whistelit feel.ng whereas as a matter
■of fact the Underlying cause is that
to the greater majority a tune with
a lilt i which is readily followed and
requires no keen perception as to
the meaning it is intended to convey
to the listener by the composer. It is
pleaalng and soon forgotten. Therefore it follows that the mind aud soul
■are not stirred to any depth of
■despair or raised to any ecstasies of
•delight, ennobled to any great ambition, or helped by an inspiration
-while listening to the supposed se-
■ducthe strains of ragtime. The attitude of the listener could he des-
■cribed as passive, receiving hut giving nothing in return. It then is
true that rag time does not elevate,
but has more or less of whnt could
be termed as a contaminating or degenerative influence.
How Incongruous it would seem to
hear rag-time pealing from the, pipe-
organs within the portals of our
■cathedrals. The atmosphere tbere is
pervaded with all that is pure and
holy and elevating to iiau'^ind. and
rag-time appeals to the other side of
human nature very effectually and
very strongly. There cannot in- any
lirect influence for go'id or for the
betterment of civilization in this
class of music with the one exception
of perchance making some people,
whose minds have not had the
portunlty of being cultivated ln
•cler to appreciate the higher tn
baPPy.
The Classics.
In the earlier days before Handel
and Bach, ahout 371 A.D. music wus
chiefly in the hands of churchmen
which is readily explained by the
fact that the churchmen were then almost thc only people of education
and culture. It was from Guido of
Arezzo in Tuscany a learned monk'of
the eleventh century and Franco of
Cologne, who between them 'aid the
foundation of our present system of
music in tlie form of chance. The
earliest composers and musicians
were natives of Belgium and Holland
not as one might imagine of Germany. For as the wind IMoweth A'here
it listeth there were notable musicians in other lands hefore Germany
produced Handel and Bach.
This has been merely a pre-amhle
to demonstrate that music stretches
hack lin the dim past to the year 374,
and it will be readily understood
that with the passing of the years
music has kept pace with civilization
in its advance or decline. A celebrated musician declared , that music,
heavenly maid, was born when Handel and Bnch were in 1CS5. And
the masterpieces given us by these
composers rank among the finest in
the world; endeavoured to voice their
sentiments und aspirations through
their music, and being genie naturally their minds and souls being
on a higher plain, than the average
their music would have an uplifting
influence. If lives of grent men all
reminds us, wc can make our lives
sublime, and departing Jeave behind
us footprints on  the sands of time.
Then surely classical music written
by great, minds will have a like effect. Classical music upholds the
grandncss of thc art, it Upholds
music from being trodden in the
dust for that is the inevitnhle end
lo which music would be doomed, If
only  ragtime  existed.
Hut we must not forget the work
done by sacred music. Wc all know
the direct. Influence fnr good thnt is
derived from the music of our
(lunches.
When bringing np a child naturally
the  parents  would   wish   it Hiirrouiided
by all     that     would      lend them to
growing up to be noble men and women, and as they would have good
OOmfpanions, healthy sports, ami
amusements, so should they nave
good books, aud the higher forms
of music.
Classical music has generally been
written under the stress ot emotion,
the Iosb ol a friend or relative, In
an Inspiration. Whereas rag-time is
written as a rule lor money, bearing
a high sounded title, decorated with
attractive colors, and sold to the
public at a price within the limits ol
the average purse. 1 might tae for
example among the classics, the Last.
Hope, which was just full, and the
circumstances under which it was
played, Gottschalks soul, stirred to
its very depths by the unexpressed
longing of his friend for her son put
Into his own music il language, her
longing, expressed In the harmony of
the Last Hope. And we might take
many other exumplis such I as Heet
liovens' Moonlight Sonata the origin
ol which  you all  doubtless  know.
Classical music having th'S • intellectual sources caunot but reach the
personality of the student or listener.
Schumann said, "The study ot music,
seconded by hearing the actual performance of the musterpieces ol different epochs will prove the most
rapid and effectual cure for conceit
and vanity..
Having discussed the influences of
rag-time and classics, there ls no
doubt in my mind that you will all
agree with me that the classics have
the uplifting effect needed for the present generations and the unborn generations. Just us a cruaade might be
started to do away with literature
abhorrent to healthy minds substantiating by good r.nding such as
biographies, history and poetry. So
might we all each doing his or her
part endei'.vor to eliminate rag-time
recreate in tho minds of all a love for
good  music.
The eventual effect, of the war on
music may trend to this aim. To
nuote from an article, "As to the
effect of the war on art most artists
ure Optimistic." One of the great
palntors thinks it will purify urt of
such eccentricities, as futurism and
cubism .nnd eliminate commercialism.
"Kn\iks", he said, "would be abie
to stand alongside the great inspirations to bc derived from the war.
This also applies to music, aud it it
we,aid purify art as futurism and
cubism eliminating commercialism, lt
will, undoubtly purity music of rug-
time and composing music inerely for
sale. The term "freakish" jdced is
suitable for rag-time and it is hoped
that thc rag-time composers ol today  will   stand  along  tne  great     'iu-
though thl e wert some forty failures
in the sl l»  exchange.
Lidderdale died uot long ago, leaving an estate valued at only £2,000,
He was a strong man and an honest
one. But the idea of interviewing him
was so remote that only an irreverent American would have thought ot
it. Creelman had no pass key or letters of Introduction. He simply went
to the Bank of England aud starting
with the astonished "beadle" worked bis way up. He was sent from department to department, to the secret amusement of various beads, until he actually fonn I himself in the
presence of the governor.
But the joke failed to explode. Utd-
dcrdale was a long-headed Scotchman, much too intelligent not to
see the vulue of publicity at such a
time. He was no Blave to precedent.
He gave Creelman an excellent interview of the 'rank and reassuring
character, which was published in the
following Sunday's New York Hera] I,
lt was a great scoop, and the London papers spent money frantically
on cable tolls, getting facts on their
own situ.ition from New York for
their  Monday  morning   iBSiie.
A precedent was s;'t. and since Unit,
time English financiers have heen
more approachable. It may be said
also that publicity there, as in Wull
street, has done much to clean up admitted evils, and to set honest finance right with publio opinion. The
story iB well worth recalling, for it
hns an obvious moral which Bhould
never be forgotten.
op-
spiratious to     he     derived from the
or-
war.                                                z

artists, and why should Canada take
a secondary place? The grandeur of
our British Columbia would serve as
u great .incentive to tha composing of
music, for what true urtists could
witness the sunset In our Canadian
Rockies whose peals covered with
their ley snow-white draperies would
be inspirations in themselves and the
turbulent rivers .winding in and out
of yawning canyons from their mountainous sheltered sources to the open
sea.
Let us hope that the tone and trend
of this civilization will he vsuch that
music we leave to our progeny will
have an influence distinctive like the
masterpieces of Reubens, to exert
over unborn generations a witchery
and a charm unifque in the history of
art.
The st idy of music seconded by
hearing the actual performances of
th" masterpieces of 'liflerent epochs
will prove the most rapid and effectual for conceit nnd \anity. —Oscar
Lundell.
CREELMAN'S EXPLOIT
Company Incorporated to Engage   in
New and impartant Line of
Enterprise
The Canadian Potash and Algin
Company has filed its memorandum
aud articles ot incorporation. Its
capital is ilOU.OOO, divided into $100
shares, and its headquarters will be
at Victoria. This company is the
owner of the Mohler procers of kelp
reduction for Canada. These processes are the result of several years' experiments. Preliminary steps towards the incorporation ot the company were .taken nearly a year ago,
but nothing definite could be accomplished until legislation could be
pnBsed authorizing the government to
grant concessions covering kelp,
groves.
The chief products that have hitherto been derived from kelp reduction
were potash and iodine. The Mohlers,
being convinced that these did not represent the full value ol tliis widely-
distributed seaweed, experimented for
ihe purpose of discovering a way by
which gum alegin could be produced
commeicially. These experiments
were conducted largely in Victoria,
and with great success. Tne Western
Algin company of Seattle was organised to handle the process ia the
United StateB, and has erected a
plant at Port Stanley, Washington.
The Canadian company has not yet
determined upon the site of its reduction plant. It will have to l-jp near
the lielp groves for which it obtains
concessions.

Wall Street Journal: James Creel-
man's death in Germany while still
in the prime of lite recalls an exploit
of which any newspaper reporter
might be proud. He was in London
ut the time of the Baring crisis in
1890, and performed the unheard-of
feat of securing, for the New York
Herald, an exclusive interview with
the governor ol the Bank of Kng-
land.
lt is matter of history how the
governor, the Right Honorable William H. Lidderdale, handled that
crisis. He lived to see the Barings
successfully liquidated and stronger
than ever, with the financial situation in Argentina restored. The £3,-
0G&,000 gold, which h, borowed hy
means of acceptances from the Bank
of Krnnce, returned in due Coursi1
with the seals ol the packages unbroken. The London market was tided ever ,i desperate emergency, w'ith

It appears that ( otintess Zeppelin,
wife of the inventor of the German
aircraft, is ;l daughter of the lato
,W. H. Macgarvey, formerly of Pet-

where he had become one of 'the oil
magnates of the country. She was
lorn in the village of Wyoming,
Lambton ''County, in 1875, going to
Europe with her father at an early
age.
A bill to prevent tipping, agitated
tor by commercial travellers' organ
izations, has been introduced In th»
Wisconsin senate. The receiving of a
tip, according to the bill, is a mis-
deameanor. but the giving of a tip in
a felony.' Under the State law these
degrees ot crime are both punishable
by Jail or prison sentences. A law
was passed several years ago jmpoe
lng a $2o fine for tipping, but tba
law was never enforced.

Absolutely the most snappy, stunning lines of Women's Boots ever

footwear we have yet seen.
This season is a patent leather one, while gunmetal will be worn to some extent in low cuts. The
new Boots are almost all of patent leather with plain or fancy black tops. These
tops come in a variety of materials but past seasons have shown the great advantage of cravenette over all others. The tendency is toward turn soles and light
welts, with the new Louis Cuban or Kidney heels. The Spool heel has been shown
with some success, and, be it known that buttons in high cuts have still the hold on
popular favor. Our stock is right up to the minute and can fill your every order
for the new lines or more staple patterns.    Our specialty is the BEST.
