Better Bargains than ever, at the Three Dig
THE subscriber would respectfully inform his cui
tomer!' and the public genecally, that notwithstad
ing the unpreceaenteel sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has still on hand 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
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring tun' made in
to garments by Pitusburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops 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 whickthey are invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concernain this city, are
the mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be ixtlmixl off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers should be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
thatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good all 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 garraents are made in this city, by competent work
men, 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
maintain 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
the public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
upon his establishment, and believing that they have
tonna it to diets advantage to deal with him, he would
repeat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase
einthing of every description at the lowest prioe,to call

"Mealey," she said, "I az you, in •drod's name, what's

To this adjuration the child replied by singing oat,
with startling vehemence, a verse too truly descriptive
