HE matchless leader of low prices, the Merchant Prince of Bolivar, the Sleepless Sentinel, who keeps vigil upon the watch tower by day and by night, is back
from market with the brightest, most brilliant and beautiful stock ever offered to the people of Hardeman, Chester and adjoining counties. Commencing Saturday
morning, October 8th, at the hour of 10 o'clock, a $40,000 stock of goods in all of its grandeur and glory will be thrown upon the market at prices that will put
the blush of shame to the cheek of competition. I stand always and alone at the fore-front, ready to beat back the ranks of those who seek to fleece the public by
exhorbitant charges. Never before in the history of the mercantile business of Bolivar have such rich, rare and racy bargains been offered as are now on display
in mv handsome three-storv brick building, which is stored from ceiling to cellar with the cream of the world's creations. Our magnificent show windows are
an index to the vast and varied stock within. We buy onlv in carload lots and special trains are run for our exclusive benefit. As they whirl and whistle through the
country, all bearing the name of BARRETT, headed for Bolivar, Tenn., they naturally attract attention, but the greatest attraction lies in the splendid bargains
they carry. Great and glorious is the display, marvelous and wonderful the low prices that prevail. Our red-hot, live-wire offerings are death blows to those who follow
where we lead. Our goods are new, just from the, centers of fashion, the product of the highest artistic skill. They are the most beautiful, stylish and handsome ever shown
in this market, and the prices are the lowest on record. This combination, good goods and low prices, works like magic and the people are not slow to appreciate it. They are
coming from far and near to our store in carriages, buggies, wagons, on horseback and afoot. Our front and rear entrances are crowded and our competent, courteous corps of
salesmen are kept busy from the dawn of day until the midnight hour. Scatter the news of Barrett and his bargains to the winds and let the crowds come. We will care for
them, no matter how large or how long they remain. We mention only a few articles to give you an idea of what we carry in stock:
