from the article, SMILING SHELBYVILLE!
Is one of five, enterprising brothers, all of whom are in the clothing
business. Three of the brothers are in business for themselves on quite an
extensive scale; Sol Joseph and Noblesville, Indiana, Harry
Joseph at Evansville, Indiana, where they do a large business,
and Julius Joseph in the city of Shelbyville, in the room
situated on the northeast corner of Washington street and the Public
Square. Julius was born in Darmstadt, Germany, in the year 1849. He
came to the United States in 1862 landing at New York. He went from
there to Cincinnati, where he served an apprenticeship of five years in one of
the largest clothing manufactories in the west. In the year 1867 he
engaged in the clothing business for himself in Evansville Indiana, where he met
with great success. He came from there to this city, and purchsed at
administrator's sale the stock of Sol Auerbach, lately deceased,
which he closed out regardless of cost. In the fall of 1878 he bought an
entirely new stock, which was selected with great care, and especially adapted
to the trade of this market. He bus directly from the best manufactories
in the country, pays cash for everything and thereby is enabled to sell goods at
prices that defy competition in Indianapolis, Cincinnati or any other
market. Mr. Joseph is now in the East superintending the manufacture of
goods expressly for this spring's trade. The store room is well stocked,
and it requires but little inspection to convince you that it is A No. 1.
He sells only good and reliable goods, and the large trade which he has buit up
in this viciinty is certain proof that he give value for money received.
His suits bear the easy and graceful appearance of city made garments. A
man fells happy when he gets them on, and there is a consolation in wearing an
elegant outfit, which nothing save religion can give and when clothes fit badly
it is exceedingly hard to pray. At the store of Julius Joseph you
can find all descriptions of men's and boy's clothing, hats, caps, trunks
and [?]. He invites all those contemplating making purchases in this line
to call and examine his stock and prices as he is convinced that he can offer
good goods at lower figures that can be found in this or any other city.
