CARLOW SENTINEL 1840
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.

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,
