Suel~ is the report brought home by Otto S. Gr u n baum Bros., Furniture Co., Inc., after a month spent in California a n d Oregon sizing up the status of the trade. The impression made on this shrewd Se- a t t I e merchandiser of home furnishings was such that he placed more orders in two weeks than the whole Seatff, e organization had done in three months. Young fgolks contemplating matrimony and subsequent house-keeping may well ponder the trend of this trade because there Is no doubt whatever that when mer. chants here sell what they have on display, goods moved onto the floor thereafter will have to be priced higher, Grunbaum de- clares. This is bound to he true because furniture manufacturers are charging higher prices to the retailers. Grunbaum cited a well known Portland factory that had been OTTO S. GRUNBAUM three shifts with ad- vance orders to keep 750 men busy for the next six months. A~l a i o n g the C o a s t Grunbaum found surplus stocks cleaned up and buy- ers at the factories striving for early de- liveries a n d the wholesale trade in such shape, at last, t h a t manufacturers could begin to ad- vance prices, It is certain that the retail trade in house furnish- tugs will very soon reflect the same conditions prevailing ia the wholesale line, Grunbaum believes. As to his own great store In Seattle, Grunbaum confessed that business in the first quarter of this year was uusatisfactory. But there was a material ehange in April and May was the first month in three years to exceed. In sales, its corresponding pe- riod of the year before.

DEPENDABLE SPARK PLUGS I Ul In II IIIII I I In PAGE THREE There lie stopped aghast, Instead of a pair of shiny patent leather pumps, he found nestling in ti~e white' tissue paper a tiny pair of high-heeled slipl)ers, frivolous cloth of gold trifles filet glistened in the light. "Ilang it all--of course l can't wear these." lie told the world in a com- plaining tone. "Of all the absurd mis- takes-well, Mrs. Billy, you can count one dancing man out." He pat th~ little slippers away in his chiffonier, smiling at them as he did so. Some little fluffy tiling might be sighing for those very slippers, but she could not help smiling at sight of his new and shining pumps when they reached her! "Not dancing?" asked Mrs. Billy, frowning at him. He told her that, lacking dancing shoes, he had ordered them and been disappointed in their delivery. "You are like poor Nellie Warren-- she says she received an enormous pair of men's shoes instead of her own ---she Is wearing an old pair and Is as cross as can be. Go find her and dance with her, fellow sufferers should console each other." Raymond skirted the dancers and found a place comfortable for wall- flowers. Fie wondered which glrl would prove to be Nellie Warren. He rather liked her name, simple and un- assuming, but she would have been splendid in gold slippers if-- He fell to watching the dancing feet of the girls, noting the dainty foot- gear until his eyes were dazzled with the procession of silver sod colored ones. Then he started, for tripping along In perfect time to Billy Flem- mlng's ponderous feet, were a tiny pair of shabby gray slippers--they were emergency shoes, he knew, for they were worn with golden hued silk hose and a golden tissue frock. The girl herself--he caught a glimpse of a dark, bewitching face, golden hued eyes, a flash of rose color in cheeks and lips, and she was gone. She might not be hls Cinderella of the slippers, but abe was undoubtedly a wonder-girl. "Hello !" bellowed Flemmlngs voice beside him. "Do take care of Miss Warren--Raymond. Arch Raymond-- you've heard of him. Nellie; can't dance tonight because he hasn't any shoes. I am callec~ away to the phone--" He drifted away into the crowd and Raymond smiled down at the wonder-girl whom Fate had set ] paper under the industrial conrtol, .~ , / then every newspaper in the state Slippers of Destroy l iwhich ships any papers outside the ] I state must become a member of the -- ----" [ [allied print/ng trades.

"Aren't you going to dance?" she asked as her little feet kept time to the alluring music. He glanced down at his feet. "I might try--I'm a clumsy beggar at my best," he apologized. Such a pity, she said teasingly after awhile as tlley paused for breath; "if you only had the stunning pair of patent leather pumps that ease to me instead of my own darlin~ golden shoes--you couldn't dance a bit better than you do." "Is that a compliment or otherwise?" "It isn't otherwise l" she laughed, Later in the evening they had danced together so often that people were smiling indulgently at Arch Ray- mond. His appearance at a dance was a mark of signal triumph for his hostess, and that he should be wor- shipping at the shrine of penniless Nellie Warren was a social triumph for the glrl. They had supper together, and when the huge birthday cake was cut, it was Nellie Warren who found a ring in her slice. *'I've had the most de- lightful time," she sighed as they said good night. "I shall never forget it," he eaid gravely, "and perhaps, tomorrow you will let me come and bring Cinderella's slippers." "You had them?" she gasped, He nodded. "Mine went to you, and yours to me. If I had not seen you--" he stopped, for he was saying too much for a short acquaintance. "I may ease?" he asked instead. "Of course--I am staying with the Flemmlngs." So he went home--back to his rooms where the golden slippers were locked in his chiffonier. Suppose he did take them ont of their wrapl~ings and rev- erently kiss each bit of glistening gold ~were they not the shoes of destiny-- had not their owner danced her way into his heart? And she--had not markets by reason of high prices. These are thin'~s attracting the at- tent| ,n of the industrial leaders and incide~mtlly the state department of labo~ and industry because of the ef- fect upon the industrial insurance pren,ums.
