Greatest Slaughter Bale 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
1 5th, 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

merely a . beginning. Our repre
sentatives in the next Legislature
should, and no doubt will, exert
every effort to secure an additional
appropriation for this purpose.
On Friday afternoon Mrs. John
V. Wright entertained a number of
little tots in honor of her niece little
Evelyn Tate's sixth birthday. Mrs.
Wright is uufailingly a charming
hostess and her beautiful home was
especially attractive filled as it was
with lovely flowers. It was a most
pleading night to see the little ones
so happy in thir games, and the
occasion was one whioh will long be
remembered by tbem. The fair
little honoree bore the honors most
gracefully and was the recipient of
many unique and beautiful presents.
Nothing could have been more
tempting than the daiuly menu
which was served al fresco, after
which the lengthening shadows re
minded the little guests that it was
time to say good bye.
One of the prettiest and dainti
est entertainments that has been in
society for some time was the
'Flower Tea," given by MissLillias
II. Bills to Mi6s Evelyn Kortrecht,
of Memphis, and Miss Margaret
Withers, of Jackson, on Wednesday
af'.ernoon at Mny. Leonidas Bills'.
Oc each invitation was a hand-
painted flower, and a flowery quota
tion bidding the guests come and
live in ,4Flower land" for a few
hours. On the arrival of the guests
they were shown into the flower-be'
decked parlor, and there was had a
'Flower Contest, the answer to
each" question being the name of a
flower. In this contest Mus Anna
Tate captured the prize, a beautiful
enameled stick-pin, an orchid.
After the contest the hostess invit
ed the guests to the lawn, on which
were several dainty tables, where an
elaborate menu ot several courses
was served. Nothing could have
been more, charming than the pict
ure these maids of "sweet sixteen
presented. And surety the flowers
themselves, seeing them in their
youth and daintiness, must have
thought that at last their rivals had
been found. Reluctant goodbyes
were said to the delightful hostess
and honorees. The out-of-town
guests were: JVIiss Evelvn Kor
