The Natchez Democrat says that a pair of shoes were built for a man who lives in Catahoula Parish, La., which, if they were to be numbered, would be eighteen.  It required the best part of a calf-skin for each one, and just twice as much of other material as is necessary to make a pair of ordinary shoes.
