Almost overy fartiily in Oklahoma is
being made aware of the fact that the
tariff protects "our infant industries,"
and some of them are so ungracious as
say that our century old "infants"

it is a sign to you that yon should

do more "home study." We fear*

of making the highest grade oj
shoes in the market, and the
