The London Clothing Company.
Civilization creates a multitude of
wants that savage states and barbarous
conditions of society know nothing of,
and the industry that supplies the de
mand for clothing an 1 men's furaishing
goods is one of the mist important pro
duces. It is an industry well represented
in every tojra anl city of any cjasik-r-able
importance, and its best and most
popular exponent in Rock Island is the
London Ciothing company. Messrs. Le
veen and Joseph, proprietors. News
that they were coming was the talk of
the city and country for months before
they opened and all Icoked forward with
eager expectancy for the opening of the
great London Clothing house. The ax
pectations of the public have been more
than realized, not only in the large and
spacious storeroom which they have
erected, but the vast 6tock of clothing
which they spread before the peo
ple and which is not equalled
in style and quality by any other dealers
west of Chicago. Messis. Leveen &
Joseph, the proprietors, are both thor
ough gentlemen, who have made many
friends in this city since they came here.
They believe that liberal advertising is
necessary to success. They patronize
largely all the newspapers in Illinois
wiihin a radious of 50 miles thus induc
ing the people to come to Rock Island to
trade . All merchants in our city are
benefitted more or less by their liberality
in this direction. Success to the London
