    • J. F. GAUGER & SON - Merchant Tailors, and Dealers in Clothing, Gents Furnishing Goods, &c., Front Street

      This firm dates its origin from 1852, at which time Mr. Jacob Gauger first commenced this business, the son being admitted in 1875, when the firm took the above style. It has twice been destroyed by fire, once in 1875, and again in May, 1880, re-building each time on the same site. The business was commenced with a moderate capital, but by judicious management it has grown to be the most extensive business of the kind in this section of the state, occupying a two story building 27 x 100 feet in dimensions. The stock is valued at $12,000, and consists of clothing, gents' furnishing goods, hats, caps, foreign and domestic cloths and cassimeres, trunks, valises, &c., all of which occupies the first floor. The second floor is occupied by the merchant tailoring department, which affords employment for fifteen workmen. Both members of the firm are natives of this state, and their annual sales which are $25,000 show that they are highly appreciated as business men.
