$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.
They are short ends from one-half yard to ten yards in length. These are laid aside and tied up in great bundles, and are disposed of to large retailers at very low prices. We were for
tunate in securing a number of cases of these remnants at ridiculously low prices. Those who are familiar with "Loom End" sales know and appreciate the meaning extraordinary
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 in 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 touclvour 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 noU

The $25,000 damage suit in
stituted by Thomas G. Patrick
against Edward L. Boyle for libel
and slander was called in the
Circuit Court yesterday morning
aud continued until September 17
The suit was the outcome of
certain statements made by Edward
L. Boyle with reference to Thomas
G. Patrick in the trial of the
chancery suits instituted by Thomas
R. Boyle and wife and O. B. Polk
and wife against Edward L. Boyle
and Charles II. Boyle, which were
tried in the Chancery Court last
summer. Thomas G. . Patrick had
given a deposition in the case and
in his examination Edward L. Boyle
made the statement that he always
believed that Patrick had told a lie
and sworn to it, and that he had
been influenced to swear to the lie
by O, B. Polk. His words were
afterwards retracted, but later the
damage suit was filed." Memphis
The committee appointed by the
president of the Hardeman County
Teachers' Association to select a
course of reading for the teachers
of the county, met at the home of
Mrs. Eloise Miller Thursday night
of last .week. They decided that
each and every teacher in the county
be urged to join the class as it is de
signed to be a course of free in
struction in such subjects as the ex
aminations have proven them to be
deficient. "Page's Theory and
Practice in Teaching" was decided
upon as the most necessary to begin
this work. Each teacher who de
sires to take this work may' do so
by securing a copy of the book for
themselves. When this book has
been finished an examination will
be held and all who make the
necessary grades will be given
permanent grades on their certifi
cates so long as they continue in
the reading course. This is a fine
plan to raise the standard of our
teachers and should be taken ad
vantage of and encouraged by teach
ers and friends of education. There
will be no expense except the price
of the book.
Bolivar Camp No. 3G, Woodmen
of the World, unveiled a handsome
monument in Union Cemetery Suu
day afternoon, erected to the memo
ry of the late. Julius Crawford.
The beautiful ceremony of the ritu
al was followed aud was witnessed
by a large concourse of friends of
the deceased. A number of se
lections were rendered by a choir,
composed of Misses Frances Stuart,
Louella Clinton, Pearl Savage and
Mrs. W. J. Savage. The poem,
'Why Should the Spirit of Mortal
be Proud?", was recited gracefully
aud impressively by Miss Pearl
Savage. Sovereign J. A. Foster
delivered the address and his re
marks were appropriate. He re
ferred feelingly to the many virtues
of the deceased, who was one of
most active members of the Camp,
whose numerous- deeds of charity
and kindness will ever be cherished
andwhose honorable, upright life is
well worthy of emulation. Quite a
number of handsome floral offerings
were placed upon the grave.
The monument is made of the
finest Georgia nurble, is six and
one-half feet high, represents the
trunk of a broken tree and bears
the following inscription:
Erected by the Woodmen of the World.
Bum Tacet CI am at.
Sacred to the Memory of
Born February 24, 1800.
Died September 1, 1902
"Asleep in Jesus, blessed Sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep."
After the unveiling ceremonies,
the Camp marched in a body to the
graves of Sovereign J. A. "Lambert
and Mrs. Ed. Roberts, depositing
floral offerings upon each.
How it Works at Trenton.
Prophets of evil, who predicted
calamity for the town when the sale
of whisky was stopped, are not in
evidence now. The town has not
been hurt but has been benefited.
Money that was spent for whiskey
by those who could ill-afford to
spend it is now spent to benefit
wives and children. Men who never
came to town on public days and
went home sober, now come and re
turn to their families sober and hap
py. The frequent broils and fights
that went to make up "first Mon
day"are now things of-the pa9t.
Three months without saloo.is in
Trenton is enough to convince the
most skeptical that the open saloon
is a curse to any community. Tren

time in my life I had a sudden se
vere attack of diarrhoea," says Mrs.
Alice Miller, of Morgan, Texas. 44I
got temporary relief, but it came
again and again, and for six long
years I have suffered more misery
and agony tha:i I can tell. It was
worse than death. My husband
spent hundreds of dollars for physi
cians' prebcr:ptio!!S and treatment
without avail. Fiually we moved
to Bosque county, our present home,
and one day 1 happened to Bee au
advertispinent of Chamberlain's

dy with a testimonial of a man who
bad been rurtd by it. Th case
was so similar to my own that I
concluded to try the remedy. ' Tho
result was wonderful. I could
hardly realize that I was well again,
or believe it could be so after having
suffered so long, but that one bottl'o
of medicine, costing but a few cents
cured me." For sale by Cox Co t
