I Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
HE subscriber would respectfully inform his cus
tomers and the public generally, that notwithstad
ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
during 'the present season; he has still on band the lar
gest and most varied assortment of elegant CLO
THING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chaaed in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to( garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop situps in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast off garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter of the establishments in which they are invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offels of New York and Philadelphia slop
abort, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers should be on their guard a-
Oast these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
thatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made in this eity, by competent work
-1111814 and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
.eastern slop shops. It will always be his endeavor to
inahrosin the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
any other . establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and
,ghe public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
upon his establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantage to deal with him, he would
repeat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase
