Third door below Pinest.street. , St. Louis, Mo.

Factory, corner of O’Fallon st. and Broadway.

Thankful for the very liberal patronage he has received, requiring an enlargement of his works to meet the
increasing demand, he is now prepared to furnish saws of a superior quality and finish, and combining the latest
improvements. Using only the most approved Cast Steel, (imported to his order from the celebrated works of
Wm. Jessup & Sons, Sheffield,) and being himself a practical manufacturer, and carefully inspecting every saw
before it leaves the factory, he can and is determined to furnish customers with an article unsurpassed in this
or any other market. He has made arrangements by which he can furnish

Portable saw mills,

Single or double, with horse powers or small steam engines for running the same—warranted equal to any man-
ufactured in the Western country. No charge for patent right—the right to run the same being fully guaran-
teed. Those wanting mills will find it to their interest to call on him before purchasing elsewhere.

Particular attention paid to Repairing Large Circular Saws,
Saw Cuts, up setts, Cold Chisels, &c., constantly on hand.
