Better Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
THE subscriber would respectfully inform his eds
towers and the publicgenerally, that notwithstad
ing the unprecodented 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 puler' may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are manfacturod front FRESH GOODS, pur
chased is rho Eastern markets this spring and made in
ta garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
Inconsequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
oar city, filled with pawn brokerselothes 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 seseral of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed of on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers she 'd be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
thatne establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
tlaiug, can give as good an article or as advantageous
ssargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garmentsare 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"
Ikutt'es4asihsed for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THIIIce in every respect, and at prices below those of
* ;my other establishment.
lle wouldagain retarn his thanks to his friends and
alle public for the unprecedented patronage b es towed
upon his establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantage to deal with hint, he would

To the Agent, Mr. J. Kilter.
I have used Dr. Swayne's Compound Syrup of Wild
Cherry fora Cough, with which I have been severely
lafflicted for about four months, and I have no hesitation
in saying that it is the most egestive medicine that I

and agrees well with my diet,—and maintains a regular

TAKING THE CENSUS IN ALABAMA.
TT .1 "ctiteXtrt Nile' ea I.IIW. -
Our next encounter was with an old lady notorious in
her neighborhood for her gratitude and simple minded
ness. Her loquacity knew no bounds—it was conitnnt,
unremitting, interminable, and sometimes laughingly
silly. She was interested in quite a large; chiuscery
suit, which had been "dragging its slow length afoot"
for several years, hnd furnished her with .a conversa
tional fund which she drew upon extensively, under
the idea that it: , merits could not - be sufficiently discos
, sed. Having been warned of her propensity, and be
ing somewhat hurried.when we called upon her, we
were disposed to get thrdugh our business as soon its
possible, and without hearing her enumeration of the
strong points of herlaw case. Striding into the house
or drawing forth our paper—
"Taking the census, ma'am," quoth we.
"Ah, yell, yes ! bless your soul, honey, take a seat.
Now do. Are you the gentlernan that Mr. Van Buren
has sent to take the scnsis? I wonder! well, gbod.
Lord look down ! how was Mr. Van. Van Buren and
family when yoa seed him 1"
We explained that We had never seen the President;
didn't know him "from 4 side of sole leather;" ar.d we
had been %.‘ ritten to to take the census. •
-Well, now, that agin ! Love your soul! well I
spose Dir . Van Buren writ you a letter, did he 1 No
I pose some of his officers done it; bless my
soul! Well, Cod be praised, there's mighty little here
to take down—times is hard; God's will be done; but
looks like people can't get their jest rights in this couri
try; and the law is all for the rich and none for the
poor, praise the Lord. Did yon ever heur,tell of that
case my boys has got agiu old Simpson 7 Looks like
they will never get to the eend of it; glory to his name!
The children will suffer, I'm Mighty afeard; Lord give
US grace ! Did yea eve: see Judge 13-1 Yes
Well, the Lord preserveus ! Did you ever hear hits
say what he Was gwir.e to do in the bny , .' case *gilt
Simpson? No. Good Lord ! Well, squire, will you
ax him the next time you see him, and write me word?
and tell me what I say.; lam nothing buts poor widow,
zu,d my boys has got no larnin, and old. Simpson tnc
'cm in. They ought to had a good start all - on 'etul
but, God bless you, that old than has used ' Ctil SIP, • till
they aint able to buy a creetur to plough with. It's Is
mighty hard case, and the will ought n't 4ever to bees
Here we interposed and told the old lady tbat'our
time was precious, that we wished to take down the
number of her family, and the produce raised .by her
last year, and be oil. After a good deal of trouble. we
got through with the description of the members of het
family and the. "statistical table" as far as the artiele of
"How many yards of cotton cloth did yOu weave in
1890, ma'am. "
"Well, now! The Lord have mercy Lets see.—.
You know Sally Higgins that used to live down in the
Smith settlement 7—poor thing. her daddy drug her off
