•'Yea sir," said a prominent shoe
dealer, recently, 'that in gooa advic«
about wearing shoes. If a man would
never wear his shoes more than two
days in succession, aud at tea it once a
month go over them with a brush dipped
in vaseliuo, he would Gud that they
would give much better (satisfaction and
last much longer. To do this a man
ought to have three pairs of shoes. 'l'heu
he could give each pair one day *>f work
and two days of rest. During these
twj days the leather has time to regain
elasticity and stretch out the wrinkles
the foot has made. The wr tikles become
breaks in the leather if the shoo is con
tinuously worn. The mac who now
wears out three pairs of shoes, one after
another, a year, tvilt find that same num
ber will list !nm two j'-ars if worn as a
buvc suggested. Of course 1 am witling.
