the conveniences he has fitted up for
himself, in his new place, the large
brick huildiug opposite the Postofirce. -
A great roomy cellar, gives ample
place for the storing of lumber in the
rough, ..bedsteads, common furniture,
and to on. On the first floor, from the
street, is the show room, filled with ele
gant and useful articles,' frotn a baby's
cradle to a complete parlor set
Some very handsome bed room sets are
here shown, and a curious steel wire
spring mattress, lighter and easier fitted
to any bedstead, yet durable, springing
and comfortable as the best old fash
ioned spring mattrer.s.
From the rear of this floor wagons
can hp loaded : and unloaded level with
the sales room, thus avoiding tugging
and breakages, often. Upstairs, arg in
numerable stoeks of chairs, bedsteads,
and all sorts of things itt the rough, and
in "knock downs." Taken all in all,
friend Boeck has as flue a building for
the purpose, and as good a stock of goods,
