The Bargain G-iver
We are still in our usual place, in the front rank, with a stylish and choice selection of beautiful Spring Goods, which will be sacrificed, even this early in the season. We differ from our competitors, in
that we do not wait until our stock is reduced to remnants before offering bargains. Picked over, out of style, shelf-worn articles are not bargains at any price. Our goods are all bright, new and up to date
and our stock is complete. We have cut the price on everything, without reservation or exception, and wise people will take advantage of this opportunity to save money. We mean business, strictly, and in
order to prove what we say, we quote a few prices, samples of the wonderful bargains we are offering : -
5oo pairs Men's Shoes (slightly damaged)
will close at ...
3ao pairs Ladies' Shoes and Slippers,
from 50 cents to . .
This great slaughter sale will commence Saturday, May 18th, at the hour of 10 o'clock in the morning, continuing GO days. Every day will bea bargain day. Our stock,
and most stylish in Hardeman County, comprises everything in the Dry Goods line, including Notions, Clothing, Shoes, Hats ; also Groceries, Furniture, Trunks, Valises, Har
Remember, the cut price goes down the line, from the handsomest Silks to Cotton Fabrics, from a barrel of Flour to a pound of Meat.

before placing your orders. We are agents for one of the
largest mills in the country.

I wa first ad vised by our family physician in
Charleston to use TEET1I1NA wiili our baby
when she was but a very yeung infant, as a pre
ventive of colic and to warm and sweeten the
stomach. Later it was useful in teething troubles,
and its effect has been found to be so very benefici
al and so free from dangers that are consequent up
on the use of drugs and soothing syrups, that we
have couie to regard it, after use with three chil
dren, as one of the necessities when there is a new
baby in the house and until the teething troubles
are over, and we take pleasure in recommending it
to our friends instead of tbs horrid stuff that so
many people use to keep their babies quiet.
