The Carlow Sentinal

1840 & 1847


New Invention by T. Oliver, Teacher of Cutting. Praising the Superiority of his System in varying to every shape proportioned as well as disproportioned. Also Parents and Guardians were reminded that he paid particular attention to that most difficult Department of Boys Clothes consisting of the London Tunic with Curricle Skirt in which he is so celebrated. Presumably this was a forerunner of the Lobble Skirt which was in the fashion later.

To the editor of the Carlow Sentinal.

6th February 1847

Sir, --Although public attention has not been called , so far as I am aware, to the conduct of Simeon Clarke and Co. I think , nevertheless such conduct towards the poor deserves public gratitude. At the Burrin Mills hundreds of people daily are enabled to purchase flour and meal per stone or pound, at wholesale prices, and the consequence may naturally be favoured - the poor are protected from the hustlers, who retail articles of an adulterated nature at exorbitant prices. This is a noble example , and should be generally followed, although I am aware the practice to respectable millers is inconvenient.

I remain,
your obedient servant,
A Subscriber
