"No," was the reply; "he didn't, say. anything of the sort." "But you just said that he. did so!" protested the. lady. "I didn't!" was her husband's in sistent reply. "Then, what did you say he said.?" asked the now .exasperated' wife. "I said," .was the calm reply; "that he said he knew you when he was a little boy." There are so many' Gr...

"Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTS! [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
' Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTS! By Alfred Lester. Boots are .undoubtedly- useful,- but I should hardly describe them as ornamental. They look -rather well when perched at .unwearable angles on the plate-glass shelves of show windows; but in a homely row in the bedroom, or in the bathroom, or wherever you happen to keep them. they are: not at all an inspiring sight. I know, because I went and had a look at my own modest collection just now with a view to gaining a few in spirations on the subject of footwear. But. after a gloomy interval I stole away and shut the door with the un halppy conviction that I shall have to take to wearing shoes. There they stood, with their toes turned in and their tongues hanging out, the silliest-looking lot of creatures in the world. They hadn't an idea between them! And to think that I've, carried those boots about with me all .over the country, permitting them to share my private joys and sorrows, keeping them carefully in a good state of repair, and se...
