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 . . . ' . l.oo
3do pairs Ladies' Shoes and Slippers,
from 50 cents to . . . . . $l.oo
This great slaughter sale will commence Saturda', May 18th, at the hour of 10 o'clock in the morning, continuing GO days. Every day will b a bargain day. Our stock, by far the bes
and most stylish in Hardeman County, comprises everything in the Dry Goods line, including Notions, Clothing, Shoes, Hats ; also Groceries, Furniture, Trunks, Valises, Harness, Saddlery
Remember, the cut jjrice goes down the line, from the handsomest Silks to Cotton Fabrics, from a barrel of Flour to a pound of Meat.

Everybody who goes fishing
wants to catch 'era. We do not
vouch for the following as a sure
way, but an old fisherman says it
won t fail : "Secure a glass jar
uuicu iuu wu
a piece of parchment over the moztb
of the jar, sticking a number of
holes in it, and go to the spot where
you desire to fish aud drop the jar
into the water. The jar should
have attached to it a string and float
so tbat it may be located. The
game fish will fairly swarm around
the minnows, and if let alone a day
or two will become very hungry
and the minute you drop your hook
in the water with a minnow on it
they will make a rush for it."

PROMINENT CITIZEN
ASSAULTED BY A NEGRO.
The neighborhood of Saulsbury
was thrown into a fever of excite
ment Wednesday evening of last
week when it became known that
Mr. II. C. Smith, one of its best
citizens, had been assaulted by Jim
Simpson, coloied. But for the in
tervention of cool heads and the
prevalence of mature judgment,
there is no telling the fate (he negro
would have met. The most authen
tic information the Bulletin has
been able to learn in regard to the
matter is as follows:
At the time the assault was made,
Mr. Smith was riding a cultivator
in his field. The assailant approach
ed a colored hand on the place
and asked of Mr. Smith's where
aboats. Without knowledge of his
intentions he was pointed out to
Simpson, who proceeded in the di
rection indicated. Closely follow
ing the cultivator which Mr. Smith
rode, was a dog, whose bark attract
ed his master's attention, and in at
temping to turn in his seat, he was
dealt a severe blowover the head
with a heavy stick. The blows
were repeated in quick succession
until he was knocked from his ma
chine. After falling to the ground,
he was beaten and braised, bu; fi
nally made his escape, pursued by
Simpson. A negro man attempted
to intercept Simpson, who it is said,
drew a pistol and threatened to kill

him if he interfered. Simpson
shortly afterwards left.
The news of the assualt soon
spread . over the neighborhood.
Friends of Mr. Smith determined,
if possible, to capture Simpson and
decided to send to Milan for blood
hounds. The dogs arrived Thurs
day night and were soon placed up
on his track. Nearly all night the
trail was followed through Spring
Creek bottom. Early in tbe morn
ing, it was again struck on the Rip
ley road, about a mile and a quarter
south of Saulsbury, followed to
where the Ashland road connects
with the Ripley road, thence three
miles south on tbe Ashland road,
where it was lost.
In the meautime, a description of
the negro had been telegraphed to
the surrounding towns, and on Fri
day, Simpson, who was under an
assumed name, was arrested at Mid
dleton. He was guarded during
the night and brought to Saulsbury
Saturday. After a preliminary
hearing before Esquire Rheuben
Daughety, he was ordered to jail,
aud arrived here Saturday evening
on the local in charge of Deputy
Sheriff Bryant Smith and Frank
Manscn.
Mr. II. C. Smith, we learn is re
covering from his injuries, which are
painful, though not serious.
Simpson, the negro who made
the unprovoked assault, is said to
be a bad character.
Bishop Gray's Work in Florida.
Bishop W. C. Gray occupied the
pulpit at Christ Church, Nashville,
Sunday. His text was, "Go ye in
to all the world and preach the gos
pel to every cieature."
In speaking of his work among
the wilds of Southern Florida the
Bishop said there was no riper field
for work than this. There are some
40,000 square miles of territory em
braced in this section of the state
and in its confines are all kinds of
people. He had preached the gos
pel to the red man, the brown man,
the white man and the black man.
The Indian, the Cuban, the Negro,
and the Caucasian were all repre
sented there. In the hardships
which he had undergone he could in
a small way realize what St. Paul
meant when he told of his trials and
tribulations. He himself had known
what the pangs of hunger and thirst
meant in his trips through this wild
region. It was frequently necessary
in this work to sleep on the ground
rolled up in a blanket like an In
dian, or in a wagon, and on oue oc
casion he slept on a dock all night.
He told of one trip that was made
in Chihuahua in a sail boat. They
experienced adverse winds on this
trip and finally had to tie the boat
up in a little cove and walk the
rest of the way. He told feelingly

of the preparations these ignorant,
yet trusting people, had made for
their coming, and how the tears of
joy had rolled down their faces
when they were greeted by them.
lie cited another instance where
he had driven eighty miles to an
Indian village, the road for the most
of the way being under water. The
Indians, gathered around him in
groups, seated on the ground, bucks
and squaws, maidens and children,
all with eager faces endeavoring as
best they could to learn the story of
the gospel. The Bishop stated that
in all modesty and with no sort of
egotism, he believed he had done
great good among these people, for
the Lord had been with him in his
work and he gave Him the credit
for the good that had been done.
There is not a county now in this
vast domain where services are not
held.
lie cited a remarkable instance of
a Seminole who had recently volun
teered to go and work among these
Florida Indians. This girl is edu
cated, cultured and refined, and
will be of great assistance in the
work among these people.
In addition to the work among
the wilds of Southern Florida, the
Bishop spoke of a boys' school
which had been recently established
about four miles from Orlando.
This school was growing rapidly
and there was great need for money
to build a dormitory for these boys.
He said the means at his disposal
in his work were inadequate to ac
complish this, and he appealed to
the people of Tennessee to help him
build this dormitory. When com
pleted it will be called "Tennessee
Hall," and will be a titling con
necting link between his work here
and the work he has done in Flori
da. At the conclusion of his sermon,
a collection was taken up to aid in
building this hall.
Florekcb, S. C, Xot. 26, 1900.
I was first mdvised by our family physician in
Charleston to. use TEETHINA with our baby
when she was but a very yeung infant, as a pre
veDtire 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 rery benefici
al and so free from dangers that are consequent up
on the use of drugs and soothing syrups, that we
have come 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 tak pleasure in recommending it
to our friends instead of th horrid stuff that so
many people use to keep their babies quiet.
