CARD. I would respectfully announce to the public that my establishment, formerly located above the post office, has been removed to the ground floor one door north of Johnston's & Hill's, where I shall be glad to show my Patrons "Old and New," a complete line of Cloths for gentlemen's wear, embracing all the Novelties of this season. As I guarantee a first class fit, I differ but in one respect with "Ely," of Chicago in prices, giving you the same article for half the moneya factso if you want to pay two prices, I can safely recommend Mr. Ely. All other houses, especially in Kansas City, I cannot conscientiously recognize as worthy of notice. Thanking the public for their generous support, I remain respectfully, T. R. Timme, The Tailor.
