hold shoe laces securely

without tying a knot.

Think what they will mean to you: No bother about shoe-strings coming untied in the street; no ends to dangle; no loops to tangle!

PRATT FASTENERS are now recognized as an indispensable structural part of all lace shoes, and it is acknowledged that a lace shoe is unfinished and incomplete without them.

[graphic]

You can buy Shoes with Pratt Fasteners of Cammeyer, at Arnold's, 240 Fifth Avenue, or at Cantrell's, 25 West 23d Street, and at all of Hanan & Son's stores, all Rogers, Peet & Co.'s stores, all of Brill Bros.' stores, at both of A. Alexander's stores, of Edwin C. Burt & Co., 72 West 23d Street, at Hilton, Hughes & Co.'s, of F. O'Neill & Co.'s, and others in NewYork City; of Thayer, McNeil & Hodgkins, in Boston; Swope's in St. Louis; Potter's in Cincinnati ; Kast's in San Francisco; Schumacher Bros'. Milwaukee; of DeMuth, Streeter, Foreman Shoe Co., Elkins, Wiswall, Carson Pirie Scott & Co., Schlesinger & Mayer, Siegel, Cooper & Co., and Marshall Field & Co., Chicago, and of the best retail shoe stores in all the largest cities and towns throughout the country, as the two hundred shoe manufacturing firms now using them are sending shoes finished with them to the retail dealers everywhere.

Why?

Because Shoes with

Agents wanted in every city and town in America. Manufacturers and retail

dealers ARE CAUTIONED to specify and identify the Pratt Fastener when ordering, as there is no other shoe-lace fastener that will hold the lace reliably and satisfactorily: always. Terms and full information from

August

By Lydia Avery Coonley

Ye crystal days of August that smile upon the hills,

And send your sunbeams seeking the perfume summer spills!
The blue skies are your banners; the forests wear your shields;
The army of the harvest sets vanguard in your fields.

Warm breezes from the tropics bring waves of throbbing heat;
The locusts' scorching accents the breathless stillness greet;
The brook with gentle murmur the mossy stone enfolds,
And goldenrod has burnished the scepter that he holds.
The clouds in fleecy whiteness lift battlements that rise
To build a heavenly city upon the radiant skies;
And, high above, white mountains its shining towers enclose,
As if the heart of summer remembered winter snows.

Ye crystal nights of August, your shadows on the lawn
Grow deep when herald twilight your mystic shield has drawn;
The aspen cymbals quiver, though wind-harps all are still,
And no æolian whisper is heard upon the hill.

In breathless silence driven across the waiting sky,
A trail of fire for signal the shooting-star worlds fly;
And, while Orion watches their course of rushing light,
They vanish like a vision that thrills the breast of night.
The midnight hour approaches, and all the stars grow pale,
As, rising to the zenith, the moon withdraws her veil.
Night gathers up the jewels in star-fields thickly sown,
And crowns her queen triumphant upon a silver throne.
