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 ileece the public by

an index to the vast and varied stock within. We buy only 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 m 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 tollow
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
