$20,000 Worth of Goods Almost Given Away!
TO THE PEOPLE OF HARDEMAN AND ADJOINING COUNTIES:On former occasions we have given many attractive sales, but we will inaugurate a "Loom
End" sale commencing at 9 o'clock on Saturday morning June 27th, continuing 60 days, that will eclipse anything in the Dry Goods history of Bolivar. The little clearance sales
and the slight reduction made in prices by other merchants, pale into insignificance when compared to our great "Loom End" sale. For the benefit of those who do not understand
what a "Loom End" sale means, we will state that every factory and mill in the manufacture of their products accumulate ' Loom Ends or Mill Ends as they are sometimes called.

bargains. In addition to these unheard-of bargains, we have made a sweeping reduction of twenty-five per cent, in the price of every article nv stock. We are determined that this sale
shall be a record-breaker. You will no doubt be surprised at the goods and prices. We are sorry for our competitors, who can't touch our values, but we congratulate our customers,
who will reap the benefits. It is useless to consume space in dwelling upon these bargains. Figures talk, and below we quote you prices which will knock the props from under high
priced merchants. Remember, these are some of our special values everything in the house has been reduced in price, whether mentioned in this advertisement or not

The Bulletin is indebted to
Mr. John R. Black for a crate of
very fiue tomatoes, large, well form
ed and of delicious Uavor. Mr.
Black, is president of the Hardeman
County Truckers' Association, and
has been active in advocating the
raising of vegetables for market,
himself following the advice he has
given to others, going to more ex
pense and trouble perhaps, than any
other member of the association to
experiment with what he believe
will prove a successful and profita
ble undertaking. Quite a number
of his tomatoes are almost as large
as a saucer, perfectly formed,
without a blemish and shouid bring
a fancy price in the market. He
has several acres in tomatoes and
made his first shipment this week.
We understand that he will also
supply the local market. He can
be reached over the Progress
Notice to Teachers.
The liberal patronage of the
public at the inauguration of our
great "Loom End" sale Saturday,
insures its success. Our store was
crowded from the opening until the
closing hour, people from far and
near came in to take advantage of
the great bargains, and our force of
nine clerks wa. completely ex
hausted when the doors were closed.
This is merely the beginning of one
of the greatest dry goods sale in the
history of Bolivar. As stated in
our advertisement, which appeals
elsewhere in to day's Bulletin,
we will continue this sale for sixty
days and the stock wili be kept up
to its present high Btaudard.
Forty cases of - new goods have
been received this week and other
consignments will continue to
arrive daily. Those who know the
value of a dollar should take ad
vantage of the 2rea inducements
we are offering.
We desire to thank our- friends
for their liberal patronage and to
extend a cordial invitation to all to
come and see us:
