Dear Eagle Children; 

Writing letters is something I am not in the 
habit of doing. Tho’ I get millions of letters 
from the dear children every year, 1 always an- 
swer them by my pretence on Christmas Eve 
night. My purpose in this world is to visit and 
bring presents to good children and the better 
they are the more they get from my great store 
house. The past year has been a hard one on 
me and I thought sometime ago that I was not 
going to be able to get up my supplies but I 
now see that i will be able to come along on 
the night before Xmas. I want you all to be 
good not only from now until Xmas but every 
day that follows it. Say, children, do you think 
I would bring a single present to a boy that 
would drink whisky or swear? Now, the time 
is getting short and I must be about my busi- 
ness. Remember to be good. 

Your old friend, 


Oh. well, do you anything

A better shoe than these cannot 
be h»d Rt any iiHce, althouKh we 
offer them at to acorj- 
ing to size. 

We have sold this shoe so long 
and the sale of same is so wei I 
established that it i.s a.i staple as 
sugar add coffee. We do not cut 
above price under any circum- 
stances and we regard it the best 
shoe on the market today for 
$1.50. This shoe conies to us 
direct from factory, also. 

We buy tiiis slioe direct from tlio 
factory: we sell it on its merits 
at a close mar;riii and you will 
make no mistake in calling foi 
t’.e Wittonia, Dixie tlirl shoe. 

Wo liave loanu-d by experience 
tliat it actually tuke.s a $5 shoe to 
give the safnn* wear tliat a fesv 
years ago a $'! shoe would give. 
If you want the Lest shoe in town 
buy a pair of our Witt’s $5 shoes 
and you liave it. 

We have been selling this shoe 
for a number of years with in- 
creasing sales seaton which 
is proof of their wearing quality. 
Try a pair.
