There is no excuse for American women not being- the best booted the world over, i'o oue who has st rubied "with French, English and German boots can fail to appreciate our su periority on that point. We are open to Ihe accusation of wearing too thin Boles, but sensible walking1 boots al ways have a iiiediumly thick sole, and for wet weather our pointed rublers irc far from being ugly.
