Florence Davies writing for the Detroit journal says a latest advices from the deep seas Are cheering. Take heart the Day of the $3.50 shoe Long since mourned As dead and gone forever May Dawn again. A unless the shot manufacturers and profiteers beat us to it and Corner the deep seas we May get walk again Iii shoes which can be bought for less than a Kings Ransom. A they told los before that Sharks skin could be made into perfectly Good leather and that All we heard about it. Hut now we Are toll that the Ocean leather company is actually tanning thousands of hides taken from Tho various monsters of the deep. A listen to this hopeful news a a under favourable no Ion it is possible to catch in the course of a Day j i Triin to big fish having skins suitable for Tannin the in Leath. Burg it in to u census takers everything from Aerol used by the agents of i be census of the United state method of transportation either on ova or water that has not been Eliph Yod Uncle same a nieces and Nephew seem Marine. Aeroplanes have come in Handy in enumerating the dwellers on tin islands off the come of Florida yachts and rowboats have been Ino to in tilt harbours of the country native canoes have by ii in demand among the hawaiian islands a a Are being used everywhere the tried and trusty mule team Isis carried the census takers out on the desert regions and snowshoes have become the trusted aides of the census gatherers in the Northern states and Alaska. In the Central part of new York state near Oswego a few Days ago an enumerator making his rounds on snowshoes arrived at an isolated farm dwelling Only to find that an Able bodied Man needed More than a census gatherer As the Man of the family had been sick in bed for several Days and the farm animals were suffering for Lack of food and water. The census Man like any Good neighbor would Stop Long enough to do the chores dig out paths thru the deep Snow and put things in slip shape order before continuing his journey. There Are others it from us to nurse our ancient grudge at lie will bring Back the $3.50 or even he i. Shark by tie . Is not the Only Dee whose skin could be used to Hammer Down i ice of shoes. Also these new fashioned tanneries Are using tin skin of Tho Ray and the ii. Not to mention the paddle fish if you know him. And the spouting porpoise. A for All we Tare they can make shoes out of frogs or eels lizards or spotted toads the skin of the jabber work the hide of the Dos gurus or the Horny Back of the pips Iseah. Just so they will ofter them to us at something less than half of our Rolls. A most of us Arentt the least bit choose about what variety of dragon or a a lion arises out of the deep to do Battle with the High coat of footwear but we Arentt foolishly optimistic either. We admit that there is one drawback to this elegant new scheme Aud that is that it is Loo Good to be True. A it is hard to picture the old line Shoemakers yielding gracefully to such opposition. Nobody is going to buy $20 shoes when some that Are just As Good can be had for $5. We be been fooled too often. The Only $3 shoe that will Ever see the Light of Day again is an old Congress Gaiter we fear. About the time that first Chark skin makes its appearance on the Market the makers of leather shoes will get together and lease the Atlantic and Pacific oceans declare shark skin shoes to be the last word in fashion and sell them it $1s a pair tin poor consumer can to Lieut the game lie might As Well give it in Quot the Wisdom of the people. It is a singular reversal of political Fortune that William j. Bryan regarded until recently As politically dead is Able to take in the matter of the peace treaty a far More common sense ground than president Wilson. Or. Bryan is no better fit to hold High executive office than he when he Hung up his hat in the state department. But with All his failings or. Bryan comes close enough to tile people to share their feeling that every essential of the peace treaty is preserve d Iii the reservations adopted by the Senate. Meanwhile or. Wilson regarded five years ago As possessing far More sense than or. Bryan is not now Able to reach up to the hitters level of perception. In the matter of the peace treaty lie can not defer to Ordinary common sense like or. Bryan but must maintain an irreconcilable attitude that prolongs the worlds turmoil and threatens disaster. Or. Wilson has the learning and intelligence that should have made him a More successful administrator than to has been. Had he kept closely in touch with the people had he sought Wisdom from All sources had he been willing to take suggestions from All elements and weigh them for whatever Oljey might be Worth he would have taken very High rank among Tho great presidents. But with All his great gifts lie has had the fault of. T i remoteness. He has been Able to take counsel Only of1 those who agreed with ins Point of View. Tho country is not disposed to be too harsh with his present extreme attitude naturally regarding it As the morbid re action of a sick Man. But this has been tin1 tendency Tail thru ins administration an unwillingness to seek Light from All soils and conditions of men and opens his mind to tin teachings of All kinds of experience.
