-Greatest Slaughter Sale of the Season
Follow the track of the fleet-footed thor
oughbred and heed the clarion notes of his
graceful rider "Go to Barrett's Always for
Bargains' In order to make room for our
new Fall Stock which will begin to arrive July
15th, we have determined to offer all goods at
prices that will practically put competition out
of business. For months we have been buy
ing and planning for this great event, carefully
collecting brilliant bargains, and the most su
perb, the grandest values ever offered the pub
lic are now within easy reach. We are in" the
lead to remain, others are out of the race.
Money, nerve and a determination to do bus
iness are three important factors that entered
into this great stroke of ours, and that we will
be rewarded for our labor and outlay, and at
the same time benefit the people of Hardeman
and adjoining counties we feel sure. Always
alert, ever watchful of my own and the peo
ples' interests, we have heretofore offered in
ducements that have never been equaled, but
this grand sale is a master-stroke. It will
commence on Saturday morning, June 25th,
at 8 o'clock, and will continue 60 days only.
Bear in mind the fact that this is a spot cash
sale and not one cent's worth will be charged
at these prices. From Mississippi to the
Madison line, from the borders of Fayette to
the hills of McNairy, the news of this great
est of all sales has spread upon the wings of
the wind, and the crowds are coming. We
are delighted to welcome them and will see
