Too ensnaring of mankind must be tho

some ot the models I saw today are cat

tho money out of one'a pocket.
The Russian boot high, seamless and
exceedingly difficult to get Into was
much In evidence. Ono delightful little
pair was of suedo and putent lcatlior, with
tassels to match the color of tho suede.
There was a choice ot such colors ns
blue, violet, gray and green, and black
was In high favor, although many women
prefer to chooso a color which matches
tho suit worn.
Ono gay little pair of boots wero zebrn

Being decidedly neutral, they resolved to

Kucsts were merrymaking at the bride's
home, 217 North COth street, sho and her
husband made their wuy to tho roof ot
a nearby house, reached tho top floor
by means of a ludder and climbed to tho
street nearly a block nwny from tho
sccno of the celebration. They were pur
sued when word of their escape reached
the guests, but completely disappeared.
Mrs. Regan was Miss Kathryn Macktn.

From all directions men and boys, night
workers going homo and others just
Btartlng, came running. Tho nlley wns
narrow and to see Into It the men had
to crowd together. Slowly tho slender
line of men was added to until It reached
clear across the street.
None but thoe up front could see what

Judging from the tenso excitement that
ran through the line of men, it must havo
been something interesting.

Dick, In a tired voice, "and I'm so tired
of dragging them through tho water! I

And, ot course, that was good advice.
But, like so much good advice, It was
not used. Dick still wished and wLhed
for a boat that would tall itself.
Now It Just happened that that very

This speaks for Itself. Cute little gold

of course, depends on the wearer's con

he returned with It, "I r, -ed It all my

It up Just like a real boat I saw on the

for neglect and mistreatment.
"Flat foot, or pes planus," said Dr. W.
F. McAnally. resident physician of the
Orthopoedlc Hospital, "may or may not
cause local suffering. Whero It does tho
pain Is usually Intense, amounting almost
to torture. This is due to a pinched
nerve, the friction of two of the twisted
bones or possibly a torn ligament. Tho
constant shock of the pain has been
known to upset ccmpletely tho whole
sympathetic nervous system, resulting In
loss of appetite, disturbed digestion, mal
nutrition and an anemic condition. In
which latter stato the patient is suscep

face so fair,
But a magnet that holds with these'
Her soul is as pure as a prayer,
