A special train has just, arrived on schedule time from the famous store of Ferguson-McKinnie Dry Goods Co., of St. Louis, decked with bunting and banners, loaded to the trucks,
labeled "J. A. BARRETT, BOLIVAR, TENN." The way was clear, passenger and freights were side-tracked, mails delayed and Barrett's Special had the right over the entire line.
It was the wonder and admiration of thousands who saw it whirl through the different towns speeding to its destination. This was a great stroke of enterprise, but is nothing compared
with the beautiful, rich and handsome goods that Car contained unquestionably, undoubtedly the largest stock ever carried by any retail store in the South Commencing Saturday

to impress the fact upon the public that these goods were bought months ago, before the recent advances, but they will be sold at the same prices we offered them when cotton was five
cents a pound. We call attention below to a few articles. Our stock is so vast, varied and immense that we will not attempt to mention everything.os

was sick only ten days. Bev. pro
fessed religion and united with the
Baptist Church in 1899. lie was a
devoted son and brother, and his
death has caused the clouds of grief
and sorrow lo h3ng heavily upon
us. But, while he leaves a heart
broken ' mother and father, two
brothers, many relatives and friends
to mourn his death, in the midst of
our grea sorrow we grieve not as
those who have no hope, for we
know Bev. was a good boy and held
ill will against ho one. lie would
often talk to his mother and say he
knew he was a christian. Just a
little while before his death he ut
tered his last words iu singing one
verse of his favorite song, 'I'm
standing on the promises of God,
my Savior," anchwithout a struggle
he passed away
We humbly bow in submission
to God's' will, and by faith in
Christ we hope to meet our brother
in that beautiful home above.
