$20,000 Worth 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 when 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 noXHiHii

The drowning of Hubert Prew
itt, the 18 year old son of Mr. J.
II. Prewitt, in Wolf River, near
Grand Junction, Thursday of last
week, is one of the most deplorable
occurrences we have been called
upon to chronicle. A party of
friends went to the river seining.
Hubert got into a swift current of
deep water, aud his father, knowing
that he could not swim, started to
his rescue. Before he could reach
Hubert, however, he himself be
came exhausted. Other members
of the party, realizing the serious
ness of the situation, went into the
water and succeeded in saving the
father, while the son went'dowu in
the presence of the awe-stricken
group. His body was recovered a
few hours afterwards and carried to
his home in Grind Junction. The
whole community was shocked at
the aunouncement, and with the ex
ception of the family aud relatives,
none are more deeply grieved
than those who composed the party.
Hubert was a popular and promising
young man and his sad and sudden
end is a source of great sorrow.
The body was buried Friday and
the funeral service was attended bv
one of the largest crowds ever as
sembled in Grand Junction. The
Bulletin joins with many others in
exteuding sympathy to the grief

Did it ever suggest itself that your apparel envelop
ed every part of your stature, your hands and face only
being in view? Must it not be so, that Clothing to a
large degree is an index to character? Perfect fitting
garments, selected with taste, are a delight to every
one that sees them, and it can be fairly claimed that
without these the fullest possibilities of social and bus
iness success have not been taken advantage of. !No
time of life is exempt from this application. No one
can be too carefully dressed. It is a duty we owe our
selves; it insures more consideration and courtesy,
which you in return extend to others. When in need
of a Suit, Trousers or an Overcoat, call on Wilt, White
and inspect Wanamaker & Brown's superb Fall and
Winter line of samples. You arc sure to be pleased.
They guarantee fit and workmanship.
