Cream is Laid at Your very Door.
Commencing Saturday7 October 5, and continuing 90 days, I will offer for sale for spot cash to the people of Hardeman and adjoining counties one of the most magnificent selections of goods ever brought
-to West Tennessee at prices lower than ever before. -Jtfy Great Department Store, a handsome three-story .brick building, is crowded from cellar to garret with the best that money can buy. My new stock is
beyond question superior, quality and prices considered, to that of any retail merchant in the state. Some predict that I have bought too heavily, but I know the wants of my customers it takes a house full
of goods to supply them, not a handful. From the bottom shelf to the roof you will find the best in my house, an idea of which can be gained from my handsome show windows, the admiration of all. Old
time business ideas cannot keep pace with up-to-date methods. Energy, enterprise and money win. I want to thank my friends for the liberal patronage accorded me during my business career in Bolivar,

J. B. Irwin, doing a general
mercantile business at Grand Junc
tion, made an assignment Monday
for the benefit of creditors. W. W.
Irwin was named as assignee. The
instrument states that the stock is to
be disposed of by January 1, 1903,
and the proceeds pro rated among
creditors. Mr. Irwin is one of the
recently discovered upon the Wbit
taker farm, in which his wife has
an interest. Experts pronounce the
quality superior. It is dark brown
in color and easily ignited. The
flow at present is ten or twelve bar
rels a day, at a depth of only one
hundred feet below the surface. A
company has been organized and
wells will be sunk several hundred
feet to develop the find.
For barns, cats, braises, lacera
tions, or injuries of any description,
Ballard Snow Liniment is a sover

cents. W. J. Cox.
Mr. Basil Burwell will give a
stereopticon lecture at the Public
School building next Monday night
under the auspices of the Cemetery-
Association. An evening of pleas
are' is in store for all who attend,
and as the prices of admission are
modest, 15 and 25 cents, and half
of the proceeds will be devoted to a
worthy cause, the care of Union
Cemetery, we hope the audience
will be large. Concerning the lec
tarer Mabel S. Vickery, of the Chi
cago Latin School, says: "It gives
me pleasure to state that Mr. Basil
Burwell's lectures, illustrated by
stereopticon views, have been given
in our school for two years, and
have been of great interest to pupils
and teachers. Their educative value
seems to me very high indeed."
Some of our readers will, per
haps, be surprised to learn that un
der the surface of Hardeman county
lies a bed of clay pronounced by
experts to be the superior of any
yet discovered. The clay bed to
which we refer is located about one
mile and a half east of Grand Junc
tion, on the Southern Railroad. Its
color is pure white and the supply
is said to be practically inexhausti
ble, the strata being from twelve to
fifteen feet thick, extending over
many acres. The product can be
used, among other purposes, for the
manufactur of the finest and most
delicate of Cbinaware.- A company,
with Mr. W. W. Irwin, of Grand
Junction, as president, has been or
ganized for the purpose of market
ing this valuable product. Several
small shipments have already been
made to the leading potteries of the
country, who are anxious for addi
tional consignments. The company
expects to put iu improved machin
ery and hopes soon to be able to fill
