$20,OOOWortli 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

Saturday informed us that he was
the owner of a two and a half
months old pig that has recently
been following one of his cows and
robbing her of her milk the same as
a calf. The pig, Mr. Mills said,
would run along after the cow
squealing and when it would catch
up with her would rear up on his
hiud legs and this would bring it in
contact with the cow's udder, which
he proceeded to pull at-ravenously
with his mouth. Mr. Mill i was

to keep from being robbed of his
