"Adjutant General Harvey II.
Hannah is in receipt of applications
from Bolivar and from Shelbyville
for authority to organize companies
of infantry for the Slate Guard,
It is not unlikely that the applica
tion from Bolivar will be granted,
and that a new company will be
added to the Second Regiment in
West Tennessee. This would give
the Second seven companies. The
application from Bolivar is sent in
by Mr. Knox Tate,- who, with
several other Bolivar young men,
attended the encampment at Frank
lin as members of the Jackson com
pany. Mr. Tate was promoted to
the sergeant mariorship of the
Second during the encampment,
and-is recognized as one of the most
gentlemanly and efficient soldiers in
West Tennessee. He is prominently
connected iu Bolivar, and would
doubtless give the guard a company
of which it would be proud."

CCIU ii HQ,
Did it ever suggest itself that your apparel envelop
ed every part of your stature, your hands and face only
being in view? Must it not be so, that Clothing to a
large degree is an index to character? Perfect fitting
garments, selected with taste, are a delight to every
one that sees them, and it can be fairly claimed that
without these the fullest possibilities of social and bus
iness success have not been taken advantage of. !N"o
time of life is exempt from this application. No one
can be too carefully dressed. It is a duty we owe our
selves; it insures more consideration andcourtesy,
which you in return extend to others. When in need
of a Suit, Trousers or an Overcoat, call on Will, White
and inspect Wanamaker & Brown's superb Fall and
Winter line of samples. You are sure to be pleased.
They guarantee fit and workmanship.
