And CF Is By. iers In Bad'Weather Rubbers and Overshoes Practically, The Only Things That are About the Same Price as Before the War Have you Sought a pair of shoes lately, either for yourself-or, for one of the children? If you have, you will realise ;just hovy expensiye leather is now. It is scarce, arid getting the soldiers are needing enormous quantities for shoes and equip- ment. Clearly it is-a duty, asf common sense, to save shoes in every The best way, of course, is to wear rubbers whenever it is wet or snowy overhead or underfoot. Nothing rots and cra-.ks shoe leather like getting it wet, particularly if it is none too good, Bs is often the' case now, even m high-priced shoes. It is fortunate, indeed, that rubbers have not joined the general upward movement. Crude rubber, in fact, cbsts no before the war thanks to Great Britain's benevolent control So, m spites of the, to 100% increased the cost of cotton and other-materials used in rubbers, prices are still normal. As a pair of rubbers, costing 60c to almost double the life of a pair of shoes costing eight.or ten times as much, there would be no doubt about the economy of .wearing them, even if they did not save many a cold, and worse the attendant expense and loss of time. But saving shoes is more -than private is public service! The leather so thoughtlessly wasted is needed at the help win the war, and saving it for that service is real, practical patriotism.
