El _tier Bargains than ever, at the Three Dig
THE sub Scriber would respectfully inform hi.) cog
tomera and the public generally, that not with stad
ig the unpr, , cedented 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 ma 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 and made
garments by Pitrtsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
oar city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast off garritents 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 se% eral of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shop's, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public, Purchasers shot. Id be on their guard a
gainst those impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that no establishment that advertises eaatern Horde
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains os can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
blr's garments arc 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 he his endeavor to
maintain "the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respoet, and at prices below those of
ony other establishment.
Ho would again return his thanks to his friends and
the 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 hisinritation to all those who wish to purchase
