the men see that it is bound to be lost,
they all rush out to avoid seeing the sad
sight, they hate to see the iron going to
waste. Thej go out and commune
with the stars. In thi- way they often
avoid a roast which is worse than a
boil. I knew a man once who was in
the way of a large chunk ol' moulten
metal that shot out from a boil, and he

Care of The Feet.
What Mrs. Jenness Miller has done for
her suffering sisters.
The wave of common-*"euse "dress re
form" and especialy "shoe letorm ' is
gathering force as it wends ils way from
Ue Atlantic to the Pacific When asked
what led to the manufacture of the cele
brated "Jenness Miller" shoe this apostle
of comfort and beauty replied, "A cry
ing demand from women all over the
couutiy. From every audience I have
addressed and they have numbered
thousands in every city of note on the
con inent, has com-; the question in tones
of distress. What shall we wear upon
our feet to be comfortable and look well?"
I have answered that question in the
shoe which today bears 1113 name. It is
my own idea of a strictly liygenic, an
atomical shoe, and gives the greatest
possible amount of comfort, st_\ le and
durability ever secured from a shoe. I
co not think that I shall ever know
greater satisfaction in life than the
thought that it has been my privilege to
solve the problem of foot comfort for my
sisters throughout the.length and breadth
of the land.
The Jenness Miller hygenie shoes are
