The Great Merchant Prince ot Bolivar
Enters the Arena for the Fall Trade
with a Brilliant and Beautiful.
Selection of Fashion's Fancies.
Commencing Saturdaj', October 5, and continuing 90 days, I will offer for sale for spot cash to the people of Hardeman and adjoining counties one.of the most magnificent selections of goods ever brought
to "West Tennessee at prices lower than ever before. My Great Department Store, a handsome three-story brick building, is crowded from cellar to garret with the best that money can boy. My new stock is
beyond question superior, quality and prices considered, to that of any retail merchant in the state. Some predict that I have bought too heavily, but I know the wants of my customers it takes a house full
of goods to supply them, not a handful. From the bottom shelf to the roof you will find the best in my house, an idea of which can be gained from my handsome show windows, the admiration of all. Old
time business ideas cannot keep pace with up-to-date methods. Energy, enterprise arid money win. I want to thank my friends for the liberal patronage accorded me during my business career in Bolivar,
embracing many years ; and I desire to say to those who have bought of mo on credit during the present year, that if they pay their accounts promptly I will carry them another year and supply all their needs!
I have confidence in the people, appreciate their patronage and will continue to give them the best values for the lejst money. The news has gone out that "Barrett's is Headquarters for Bargains in
Bolivar." The people are coming to the store on foot, on horseback, in buggies, in carriages, in wagons, crowding our front and rear entrances. Let them come they are thrice welcome ! Myself and a
competent corps of salesmen will be found ready to serve them. We are on duty from daylight until midnight. Below we mention only a few of the thousands of articles we carry in stock.
