$20,000 Worthr of Goods Almost Given Away!
TO THE PEOPLE OF HARDEMAN AND ADJOINING COUNTIES: On former occasions we have given many attractive sales, but we will inaugurate a ''Loom
End" sale commencing at 9 o'clock, on Saturday morning June 27th, continuing 60 days, that will eclipse anything in the Dry Goods history of Bolivar. The little clearance sales
and the slight reduction made in prices by other merchants, pale into insignificance vhen compared to our great "Loom End" sale. For the benefit of those who do not understand
what a "Loom End" sale means, we will state that every factory and mill in the manufacture of their products accumulate "Loom Ends" or "Mill Ends" as they are sometimes called.
They are short ends from one-half yard to ten yards in length. These are laid aside and tied up in great bundles, and are disposed of to large retailers at very low prices. We were for
tunate in securing a number of cases of these remnants at ridiculously low prices. Those who are familiar with "Loom End" sales know and appreciate the meaning extraordinary
bargains. In addition to these unheard-of bargains we have made a sweeping reduction of twenty-five per cent, in the price of every article in stock. We are determined that this sale
shall be a record-breaker. You will no doubt be surprised at the goods and prices. We are sorry for our competitors, who can't touch our values, but we congratulate our customers,
who will reap the benefits. It is useless to consume space in dwelling upon these bargains. Figures talk, and below we quote you prices which will knock the props from under high
priced merchants. Remember, these are some of our special values everything in the house has been reduced in price, whether mentioned in this advertisement or riot

The county court clerk of Hay

King in regard to the new law tax
ing the selling of barbecue refresh
ments. The Comptroller replied as
follows:' "The privilege tax on
barbecues, picnics, etc., does not
apply when the proceeds are devo
ted to charitable, religious or educa
tional purposes, 'nor does it apply
to picnics and reunions given by
Confederate soldiers. This is a
pernicious law, and you should use
judgment in enforcing it. It was
only iutehded to prohibit such when
given for personal gain."

Friday afternoon a large crowd

one of the best a;nateur contests of
the season and will probably be fol

ball, but the pitching of Williams,
supported by heavy batting and
good field work won the game.
