NEW LACE ON OM> BJEI<TS. 

The old lace on a belt may be removed and the old leather re-covered with 
new lace. When we re-cover a belt with new lace we also clean the old metal 
trimmings, so that the re-covered belt looks almost as well as a new one. The 
convenience and economy of having belts re-covered will be appreciated by officers 
who have been promoted, and by those whose belts have become badly worn. 

Our prices for re-covering belts are as follows: 

For re-covering field officer's belt and slings with best gilt wire lace S5 00 

For re-covering field officer's belt and slings with real gold wire lace .... 10 00 
For re-covering line officer's belt and slings with best gilt wire and silk lace, 4 00

Essentials of Mili- 
tary Legginps. — In- 
fantry Military Leggings 
should be made of strong, 
durable duck, mid made 
straight at the top. Height, 
is a question of preference, 
but twelve inches is ample 
protection. Everything 
about leggings should be 
a part of them, or fastened 
to them in such a manner 
as not to come off. They 
should be so made that one 
part will not wear out be- 
fore another, and for that 
reason the edge must nol 
be bound either with 
leather or cloth, neither 
must a raw edge be ex- 
posed. Buckles and straps 
should be riveted into the 
leggings, not sewed on. 
The fastening ought never 
to be positive, like buttons, 
heavy snap springs, patent 
idovi! bul hm' clasps, etc., 
all of which admit of no 
play, but the legging must 
nevertheless fit exactly. The fastening should he of something that will oiler the least possible re- 
sistance to brush, etc., and yot be capable of quick adjustment. All of the foregoing essentials are 
comprised in the patent lace Leggings adopted by the V. S. Army in 1887, and listed below as 
Standard Army Leggings (No. 1). The fastening consists of grommet holes, list and smooth, in 
front flap, and heavy army studs in rear flap, a combination that offers practical]}- no resistance to 
bushes, etc., and also "gives" with the motion of the leg, and thus renders walking easy. 

No. 1. Standard Army Leggings: made of Standard army duck, in tan 
or white color, with patent army lace fastening; 12 inches high.

WHITMAN RIBRER-EOOTED STIRRUPS. 

The "Whitman Stirrup. — In whatever ways stirrups have been improved, excepting the 
wooden stirrup, there is only one other stirrup (the Whitman) in the market that will prevent, the 
foot from slipping. The Whitman Stirrup is elegant in appearance, is of proper weight, and bv 
nieaus of a neat rubber mat countersunk in its foot-plate prevents the foot from slipping. A pair 
of these Stirrups may be used a good while, and then may be made as good as new by replatiug 
anil substituting new rubber mats for the old ones. No person who has used the Whitman Stirrup- 
will ever be satisfied with any other kind.

Points Of Excellence.— The Whitman Bits, with the Whitman Snap Hook Attachment, 
are recomnicndable for their lightness, elegance, economy, and, above all, strength. They combine 
the common riding hit and hradoon in one. They are not hard on the horse's mouth, and at tlie 
same time they invest the rider with great power to control his horse. 

I^Please note that we can furnish these hits with four rings, arranged for two reins with port 
or straight mouth, instead of two rings as shown in cuts.

THE READY RIUIXG STRAPS. 





Their Use. — Attached to the solo of the shoe and trousers on the inner side of the foot they 
arc entirely concealed from view, and the trousers hang naturally. The rider's appearance is there- 
by greatly improved, his comfort increased, and his trousers are secured from injury. The end- 
hooks being connected with a spiral spring, they will fit any shoe. Longer and shorter lengths can 
be furnished if desired. No buttons on the trousers are necessary. '1 he straps can be put on or 
taken off in an instant. 



No. 460F. Ready Riding Straps; per pair.. 



So 65 

Directions for "Using.— Attach the end-looks of Que Riding Straps to the shoes, and the 
clasps to the inside edges of the trouser legs, as shown in the cut. Make sure that the outside hooks 
are well in place, and also that the clasps have a good hold on the trousers, and it is well to give 
them an extra pinch. If the Riding Straps are too long, unscrew one hook on each and cut off 
some of the wire spring. To unscrew the hook, hold the end of the wire firmly with a pair of 
small pliers; otherwise, as the tendency of the wire spring is to bind when you attempt to unscrew 
the hoo'-;, yon are liable to twist the whole spring out of shape. If Straps are too short, send them 
back and another pair will be sent in their place.
