Here a large and carefully selected stock of fine groceries, crockery and glassware are carried including the best brands of teas and coffees, spices table delicacies, etc. A specialty is made of the celebrated national brand Baltimore Oysters, put up by Keagle & Guider, both in cans and bulk, and which are largely handled at wholesale and retail, as are also fruits of all kinds, and sweet potatoes by the barrel; the firm being direct importers of these goods, which are sold at the lowest market rates.
