Tbe average passer - by Is at first nnable to aeooont for the commotion. Judging from tbe crowd one would suppose that somebody had been hurt, - but on eloser Investi gation tbe cause of the attraction is found to be tbe Great Llanidation bale of Fine Clothing at 22 St. Charles street. M. . WTer a uo. una and well selected stock of tailor - made clothing Is belnir sold off on account of ebange of business, and tbe low prices are too strong an Inducement for anyone to resist alter seeing such nobby sua desirable goods. Tbe stock Is being rapidly moved off. It would, therefore, be well for those Intending to purchase to call as early as possible while tbe assortment is till complete.
