$20,000 Worth of Goods Almost Given Away! j
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 notvxtf

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
f 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-
H ..elves; it insures more consideration and courtesy,
