HEI7I subscriber would r.3spect fully inform his ens
-IL turners and the public generally, that notwith stad
leg the uaprecelentzd sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present 3C11.3014 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 m'ufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chnsod in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garnlnitts by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
earth ff gunnents of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter orthe establishments in which they arc invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The art i-
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offals of New York and Philtvielphia slop
chops, and sent oet here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers shot , a be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that no 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 pnblic - will please remember that all the subscri
ber'sgartnents aro malein this cif y,hv competentwnrk
men, and not gath^red 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"
7 " have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
e nv other establishment.
woulclagain return his thanks to his friends and
"the publicfor 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

a fact of his own experience. Awaking one night
