with a Brilliant and Beautiful
Selection of Fashion's Fancies.
The Markets of the World have been
Ransacked by the Man who ever Battles

Cream is Laid at Your very Door.
Commencing Saturday, 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 befpre. My Great Department Store, a handsome three-story brick building, is crowded from cellar to garret with the best that money can buy. 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 fall
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 and 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 me on credit during the present year, that if they pay their accounts promptly I will carry them another year and supply all their needs!
