the Many dollars arc annually
' ; ' and we might truthfully say,
l . almost daily sent away from
home to mail-order houses in
the cities for the purchase of
articles that should be bought
at home. Suppose our mer
chants bought what they con
sumed from a distance, what
would become of the produce
and other barter our farmers
raise? It would'rot upon their
hands. Arc the great de
partment stores interested in
your welfare ? What care
they if you have sickness in
your family, or a short crop?
When you deal with them
they require the cold cash,
regardless of circumstances,
and the money you send oil
is taken from the communi
ty forever. Appeal to them
when in distress and see what
answer you will get. But it
is different with your home
merchant he is your friend,
he pays taxes which help to
educate your children, he as
sists in building your church

you cannot pay your account
he furnishes you with the
necessaries of life, and when
death comes into your home
he goes to the undertaker and
stands good for a coffin

We should remember these
facts. They apply not only
to merchants, but with equa
force to every other home
We regret to learn that
some of the people of White
ville are under the-impres
sion that Bolivar is attempt
ing to take advantage, iri a
business way, of the smallpox
situation in that community,
by magnifying existing con
ditions. We are sure that
there is not a reliable citizen
in this community who would
stoop to such a method. Npt
many months ago our town
had an unfortunate experi
ence with smallpox, which
isolated us for weeks false
reports were scattered by un
reliable persons to the effect
that people were dropping
dead upon our streets, when
in truth there was only one
case in the town; therefore,
we are in a position to and do
sympathize with our White
ville friends, and we sincerely
hor)e that the disease will
soon be entirely eradicated.
Judge W. H. Swiggart,
ot Union City, candidate for
the democratic nomination
for Governor, spent Saturday
in Bolivar, forming the ac
quaintance of our people.
This was his first visit to our
county and he made a favor
able impression, as he always
does wherever he goes. Judge
Swiggart is a man of ability,
with a clean record both as a
public official and a private
citizen. He is the only can
didate from West Tennessee,
a division of the state noted,
among other things, for al
ways furnishing a handsome
democratic majority for the
ticket, and but few nominees
for gubernatorial honors.
West Tennessee's time has
come and Judge Swiggart is
the man for the place.
The next meeting of the
Hardeman County Farmers'
Institute will be held at Bol
ivar Saturday,'September 14.
The program appears else-
where in to-day's Bulletin,'
from which it will be seen
hat the subjects selected for
discussion are of especial in
terest to our farmers at this
particular time. We hope
the attendance at this meeting
will be large.
Sunday School Convention.
The Hardeman County Sunday
School Convention met in the, Cap

1901, at 10 o'clock, a.m., with Mr

in the chair, and W. J. Cox acting
as temporary secretary.
After devotional exercises by
Rev. W. S. Cochrane, W. McBride

by the people or the town. Un ac-

Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After 30
Years of Suffering.
"I have suffered for thirty years
with diarrhoea and thought I was
past being cured," says John S. Hal

had spent so much time and money
and suffered so much that I had
given up all hopes'of recovery.
was so feeble from the effects of the
diarrhoea that I could do no kind
of labor, and could not even travel,
but by accident I was permitted to
find a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and
after taking several bottles I am en
tirely cured of that trouble. I am
so pleased with the result that I am
anxious that it should be in reach of
all who suffer as I have.

A Trip to the Buffalo
Exposition and Niagara Falls.
Editor Bulletin :
Being the first Bolivarians
to do the "Pan-Am." at Buffalo, it
has been suggested that an account
of the ten days' trip to eastern New
York and Toronto be given the read
ers of your paper.
Ou the morning of August lGth,
"we two" boarded the north-bound
train for Buffalo via Louisville, Cin
cinnati and Cleveland. Our friends
not only wished us bon voyage, but
evenjthe elements were weeping co
piously, whether for joy or sorrow
could not be determined, however,
and continued so to !ament up to the
time we took a Bleeper at Louisville
for Cleveland, thus ensuring a cool
and dustless trip. Cleveland was
reached on schedule time and as the
"City of Buffalo" was not due to
sail for au hour or more, after re
freshing the inner woman with the
retrains of a well-filled lunch box
and the addition of weak coffee, a
carriage drive was indulged in.
Euclid Avenue is considered one of
the most beautiful residential streets
in the United States. The palatial
mansions are built far from the
street and are iudeed imposing i.i
appearance, covered as they are with
ivy and fronted with broad velvety
lawns, dotted here and there with
beds of gorgeous flowers.
The hour passed all too quickly.
By 9 o'clock Saturday morning we
were out upon the broad bosom of
Lake Erie. The "City of Buffalo"
is the second fastest steamer that
plies between Cleveland and Buffalo
ft has a capacity of 1262.83 gross
tons, carrying 3500 passengers, with
a crew of 125 men. The present
Captain bears the good old name of
Smith. Through the courtesy of
the Purser we were shown over the
steamer. While in the engine room
we were nine feet below the surface
of the water.
We landed at Buffalo at 6 o'clock
in the evening, and ourselves and
the inevitable grips were soon lodged
at 114 Elmwood Avenue.
Buffalo is a beautiful city, having
broad, well-kept asphalt streets. The
street car system is seemingly per
feet. For 5 cents almost the entire
city can be encircled. '
As to the "Pan," anyone who
has seen one Exposition has practi
cally seen all. The grounds are
beautiful. The brain that planned
and then executed the same is that
of a cenius. In the center of the
grounds stands the electric tower,
perfectly symmetrical in its min
utest detail ; 40,000 lights burst
from it each evening. From its
base a miniature Niagara is ever
pouring at the rate of 3G0 gallons a
second. The volume of water is 30
feet .wide at the base and 1T0 feet
high. Scores of fountains are play
ing in all patts of the grounds" con
stantly. It was a sight long to be remem
bered to witness the turning on of
100,000 lights, the pressing of one
button does the work.. The power
ife supplied direct from Niagara in
the electrical building. What an
age of rapid development !
The buildings are so erected that
each side balances the other as to
proportion and symmetry, making a
perfect whole, but the. thought ever
uppermost in the mind of the
writer was, Vhat skill, labor and
genius expended, and how soon to
see the results destroyed ! Ere the
dawn of a new year all that beauty
and magnificence will be no more,
and Forest Lawn Park will have re
sumed its normal aspect.
The exhibits were good, especial-
y those in the government ana
It would be unfair to make do al
lusion to the Midway, the pleasure
loving feature of all Expositions.
We were so fortunate as to be
able to take in all the really inter
esting shows (but were not in turn
taken in by any), from Chiquata,
the Doll Lady, 26 inches in height,
to Cardiff, the giant (stone, how
ever), 8 feet tall. From a Trip to
the Moon in the airship, Luna, du-
air, to a visit to the lower regions
where we beheld his satanic majesty
seated ypon his throne, but before
which we did not linger long.
The most uovel feature in this
human-hive was the infant incuba
tors, where real, live flesh and blood
mites in different stages of develop
ment were seen peacefully reposing
in their little glass cases. To coun
terbalance this for ludicrousness was
a Kentuckian 7 feet, 7 inches high, I
in charge of the miniature railway.
' So much for the "Pan," which!
if it continues to have an average i
attendance of 50,000 daily, as it had
in August, wiii pay out handsomely.
The next point of interest for the
Bolivarians was to view America's
greatest natural curiosity, the Falls
of Niagara. A trolley ride of 15 or 20
miles and a fare of 35 cents landed
us "in Niagara City. A short walk
soon brought us to the sight which
for years and years has been longed
to be seen. The brush of the artist,
pen of the writer, and tongue of the
tourist have not portrayed and sung
its awful power and grandeur in
vain. From all points, rainbows
of marvellous beauty are seen.
In the little steamer, "The
Maid of The Mist," we were bathed
in the never-ceasing spray of both
the American, and Horseshoe Falls
on the Canadian side. Reaching
terra fir ma again, a government van
was procured for the circuit of Goat
Island, where the privilege of stop
ping at any or all of the points of
interest on the island is extended
one for the consideration of 15 cents.
Here the Cave of the Winds was
entered, a wild and venturesome ex
perience, but - not a dangerous one.
Imagine the shock of a cold shower
bath multiplied by 100 and that in
turn intensified a hundredfold, and
one can partly realize the feeling of
the 6ight-seer when, standing behind
the Falls, clad in the regulation
suit (a red flannel bloomer), trying
to pierce beyond the mist and al
the time saspinfr for breath. This
feat was accomplished in less than
one hour for $1.0G.
From Niagara the gorge route
was taken to Lewiston, where the
steamer "Chippewa" awaited the
hundreds of passengers for a run
across the lake to Toronto, the most
progressive city in Canada. The
descent from Buffalo to Lewiston
is three hundred and thirty-six feet,
The lake was quite boisterous, the
air cold but the inconvenience o
both was braved for the sake of a
sunset and moonrise on the water.
For the first time in the lives o
"we too" a night was spent outeide
America. The experience was not
at all startling.
The next morning one of Uncle
Sam's dollars, "which by the way,
are easily passed in Canada, ensured
us a delightful drive over the city
in an electric tally-ho, mi ius t'ie
horn and dog, however. Toronto
was found to be such a beautiful,
restful and at the same time pro
gressive city that an inward vow,
put into words later, to the effect,
that if the Fates would be propiti
ous in the near luture, loronto
would become the abiding place of
one of the two. This city was sim
ilar in all respects to the American
cities visited in the little trip, the
same ivy covered houses, the same
flower-bedded lawns, the
same stir, push and bustle. The
shade trees, however, were different,
almost altogether consisting of very
large, symmetrically formed horse
chestnut trees. A veritable House
of Parliament was visited, a Cathe
dral passed having the next highest
spire in America, a cricket game
witnessed, as well as many other in
teresting sights which time and
space forbid to mention.
Toronto was left at 2 p. m., the
uneventful' run to Lewiston made, a
return to Niagara on the Canadian
side, a farewell view of the Falls
taken, when 10 o'clock found us
again at 114 Elmwood.
Some of the remaining three days
was given to shopping and -sight
seeing in Buffalo and a final day on
the grounds, when the art, fisheries
and state buildings were done, and
a grand pyrotechnic display was
witnessed from the water front, a
fitting finale for the ten days de
lightful stay in the East.
The return was tiresome, delays
numerous. Bolivar was again sight
ed on Tuesday morning, the 27th,
by the travelers, bearing in their
minds the charming recollection of
all the many interesting places vis
ited, but with pocket books sadly
