The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
Friday, October 2, 1903.
With the next issue, the
Bulletin enters upon its
39th year. During its lengthy
existence, fifteen years of
which have been under its
present management, the pa
per has passed through many
vicissitudes, sharing the for
tunes of the people of Har
deman County in peace and
prosperity, in war and adver
sity always advocating what
it has believed to be right,
just and honest, and for their
best interests. It is gratify
ing to us to know that the
Bulletin maintains the es
teem, admiration and confi
dence of the public and that
its patrons are among the
best citizens of our county.
Unlike some papers, publish
ed for political purposes to
further the ends and aims of
favored friends, dependent
upon politics for support
the Bulletin belongs to a
different category and has a
higher conception of its duty
as a public journal. While
we never fail to express our
opinions upon public ques
tions, our chief aim is to print
a decent, respectable paper
and to erive the news. We
appreciate and sincerely
thank our friends for their
liberal and increasing pat
Soldiers' Call to Arms by a Rural
The Tipton Record publishes an
article in advocacy of the cause oT
Gen. William B. Bate, which is
likely to become a campaign docu
ment. The article follows:
"THE DAMNED OLD SOL
To the Record.
'Bate is nothing but a damned
old soldier, and we will have to
put him to sleep."
For the first time in the history
of the State that has proudly flaunt
ed the title of the ''Volunteer
State" in the faces of the other
States of the Union, a campaign
has been opened in which voices of
a political circle have been raised
in favor of sounding taps over the
political grave of a man who has
given his blood and his brain for
Among the men that are op
posing Gen. Wm. B. Bate for the
United States Senate, the cry has
been taken up that the day of the
soldier is gone and that the younger
generation shall forget the valor and
patriotism of the past, and look
with an eye single to the selection
of a man who can dispense the
political pap to his crew with a
lively sense of favors yet to come,
and perfect oblivion to personal
suffering and sacrifice already made
by a man for his people.
It is entirely probable that this
battle cry raised by the followers of
the McMillin banner, whose head
quarters seem to be in the city of
Memphis, will find but cold re
ception in Tennessee. The Ten
nessee mind is very apt to go back
over the fields of Mexico, where
the colors of the republic were
carried to victory by Tennessee
troops, and where Tennessee men
coined blood into victory.
It is likely to pause for a moment
in front of the city of New Orleans
where a Tennessee host, led by
Jackson, Carroll and Coffee, sent
the British lion bowling from our
then frontier, and made perpetually
safe the peace and possession of the
The same mental force is certain
to pause in the midst of Chicka-
mauga where Gen. Bate, leading as
gallant a host as ever went forth to
battle for the principles of a free
and brave people, felt the sting of
the enemy's bullets, and gallantly
held his own, uncowed by the gaff
of galling wounds. Nations and
empires watched the onslaught
made in this memorable struggle.
For the Federal army, Thomas the
night before, had sleepily urged his
fellow commanders, "Fight, fight!"
He had in a word told the necessity
of the hour. ,
No other such fight had ever
been seen on the face of the civilized
globe, Austerlitz, Marengo, and
those spectacular engagements in
which the pyrothenics of war were
sett off to thrill and astonish the
fighting world had no such stage
setting. In the midst of it stood
"the damned old soldier." Off a"
little distance from the point on'
Mission Ridge, where Grant's ant-t
like army swept through the center!
of Day's Alabama brigade and
opened the pathway for Union
success, a thinned and valiant body
of men withstood the shock ot
fearful attack even after the center
had been broken, and the Southern
colors had been sent back to the
ravine in the rear. Dead men had
place in this scene. The demon of
war raged under low barometer, and
the storm of conflict swept the crest
of the hill. Here, also, W3s "The
damned old soldier."
There was no hope of political
preferment in that hour of danger.
No salary attracted the efforts of
the men who were there. A little
roll of Confederate money, as
worthless, and known to be as
worthless as the paper upon which
it was printed, came rather as a
mockery than as a reward. "The
damned old soldier" was a candi
date for a place among the dtad of
his own people on that field of
carnage and glory. And now, as he
limps into the contest for the
senate, where he has served his
people without a single black mark
upon a spotless record, the Mem
phis cabal of political manipulators
sets in motion the cry that he must
be put to sleep.
Taps will be sounded in this
campaign, but "The damned old
soldier" will not occupy the grave.

THE BIG BAENUM AND BAILEY SHOW
WILL SOON BE WITH US
Although the ISarnum & Bailey
Greatest Show on Earth will not
exhibit iu this city during the
present eeason, special excursion
rates have been mad on all lines of
travel to afford people iu this
vicinity au opportunity to visit the
big show when it exhibits in Jack
son Tenn., Oct. 10. The Barnum
& Bailey circus has aroueed ex
traordinary interest this season.
This is not surprising in view of
the fact that this is its first Ameri
can tour since returning from its
phenomenally successful five yaars'
sojourn in Europe. In the Old
World it excited admiration auu
wonder by reason of its magni
tude and the marvelous way in
which it was conducted. Here, at
home, the unparalleled reputation
of former years has been accent
uated by the truly gigaulie way in
which the great show has expanded;
while the many new, novel and
startling feats presented iu the three
rings, on the double stages, in the
vast aerial spaces and on the mam
moth hippodrome track have ex
cited an enthusiasm hitherto un
known in areuic performances. The
show opens with a splendid in
augural spectacle, "The tribute of
Balkis." Nothing so rich in costu
ming or so elaborate in picturesque
detail has ever been iu America.
The arenic performances that fol
low present 300 artists in a per
formance of unapproachable magni
tude and novelty. The world's
greatest riders, the leading manege
equestrians of Europe, aerialists
whose feats in mid-air are thrilling
in their sensational dariug, and
scores of acrobats, gymnasts, and
other arenic specialists who perform
new and seemingly impossible feats
of strength and highly-trained
dexterity, contribute to what is un
questionably the graudest circus
performance ever given anywhere
on earth. Cyclo, the Kinetic De
mon; who rides a bicycle on the
inner rim of a perpendicular circle,
has created a veritable furor. A
series of exciting hippodrome races,
a world-embracing menagerie, a
congress of earth's most noted
"living curiosities," and a reproduc
tion of the famous fighting ships in
miniature, round out an exhibition
that contiuues to be, what it always
has been.the greatest show on earth.
A magnificient free street parade
will be given at 10 o'clock in the
morning, prior to the opening per
formance. Beautiful Complexions
Are spoiled by using any kind of
preparation that fills the pores of
the skin. The best way to secure a
clear complexion, free from sallow
ness, pimples, blotches, etc., is to
keep the liver in good order. An
occasional dose of Ilerbine will
cleanse the bowels," regulate the
liver, and so establish a clear, healthy
complxion. 50c at Cox & Co's.
