.A. TWEJíTY-JíINE YEARS. I comnienced the mercantile life 29 3ears ago ; and feeling that a change is necessary for my health I shall retire from the Retail Clothing business on or about July 1, 1883. ín some respecta it is with reluctance that I go out of active business ; but I have decided, aftar carefully thinking the matter over, that it is the thing for me to do. The way I shall proceed is as follows : First, to give my friends and patrone, who have stood by me so many yearg, (during my stay in Ann Arbor), a benefit, by making a great reduction on my entire stock, by selling for the next sixty days at retail. Then I will be ready to receive aitions f rom iay one for balance of stock, store room and good will of concern. My stock consists of a well assorted line of Ready-made Clothing, Hats, Caps, Gents' Furnishiog Goods, etc. Terms of sale will be cash on all sums of twenty dollars and undr; all amounts over twenty dollars, six months time will be given, on approved notes. I hope especially that my old customers will avail themselves of this opportunity to buy goods cheap. Sale to commence April 18, 1883. JOE T. JACOBS, the Clothier, 27 & 29 Main st., Ann Arbor.
