The furniture warehouse of A. D. Seaman & Co.company , is located on
Pine street, adjoining the Planter's Hotel, being a branch of the large
manufactory, at Milwaukee, Wis. This branch house was established in
1866, and occupies a building three hundred and fifty by forty feet, em-
ploying thirty hands, and based upon a capital of $400,000. This is one

their superior excellence. It is not many years since that in order to
obtain a good article of furniture, it became necessary to seek the eastern
markets. The case is different now. The furniture from this house

prices just as favorable, with advantages, if any, in favor of the home
manufactured article.
