The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in the Eastern markets this spring and made in

itt consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our thy, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,

gainst 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
iber's garmentsare madeinthis 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"
hide - Obtained forfurnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
