The Business of Chicago,
So large and so important, reaching in monopoly
over a territory larger than the entire New England
States, and largely connected with the trade and com-
merce of every known country in the world, has no
success more complete or emphatic in its history than
WILLCOX & GIBBS'
SILENT SEWING MACHINE.
The Proprietors, L. COKNELL & CO., have for
years stood among the most prudent, careful, and suc-
cessful of our leading business men, and their posi-
tion and enterprise, together with the greatest favor
with which their famous Sewing Machine is every-
where received, identify them largely with the pros-
perity, history, and growth of Chicago. The name
of their machine is a household word in every civilized
part of the world, and no machine or firm is probably
more favorably and widely known throughout the en-
tire West, than the Willcox & Gibbs' Sewing Ma-
chine and L. Cornell & Co., whose success is mainly
due to the great merit of their goods and the high po-
sition won by uniform courtesy, integrity, candor,
and honor, which characterize so many of our prom-
inent business men.

A WOED TO THE READER
THE want of a Guide Book, such as the
one here presented to the public, has been
so long felt and so generally acknowledged,
that an apology for the present work is quite
unnecessary. The design of this work is
not only to furnish the immense number of
strangers who visit this metropolis of the
Northwest with a complete Guide to the
public institutions and objects of interest,
for which this young city has already become
so famous, but at the same time contains a
vast amount of matter, useful and valuable,
that recommends it to the citizen as well as
stranger. A glance at the Table of Contents
will say more in its favor than can be said
by the recommendation of the publisher.
A WORD TO THE READER.
We have also thought it proper to incor-
porate in this Strangers' Hand-Book the
names of a few of onr first-class houses in the
various lines of trade, thereby rendering it a
complete guide in this respect. The location
of the stores may readily be found by con-
sulting the Business Index.

H. N. F. I.EWIS,
EDITOR AND PUBLISHER.
WITH AN EFFICIENT CORPS OF ASSISTANTS AND CONTRIBUTORS,
84 AND 86 DEARBORN STREET,
Between Randolph and Washington Streets.
The Sixth Volume of this excellent and most successful
Weekly commenced January 1, 1868. It has met a remark-
able success, but not more than its real merits deserve. It
is devoted mainly to Rural affairs, but gives also a great
variety of Family Reading, choice original and selected
Stories, and has a "Children's Corner" full of nice things
for the little ones, a valuable department for the Ladies, etc.
The market reports are a leading feature.
Its suc-cess is a striking example of Western growth and
the result of well-directed enterprise. By liberally adver-
tising its merits, and by remarkably generous gifts of pre-
miums to those who raise clubs of subscribers, the Pub-
lisher has already secured for it a circulation more than twice
att large as any other Journal of its class west of New York !
During the year 1867 he gave away over $12,000 worth of
Sewing Machines alone. The Premium List embraces not
only Sewing-Machines, the Wheeler A Wilson, Wilcox &
Gibbs, and Howe, but a large variety of other highly desirable
premiums for clubs of various sizes.
Residents and Visitors are invited to call at the Business
Office, and Editorial and Printing Rooms, at 84 and 86 Dear-
born Street, and make themselves known and receive speci-
men copies (free) for their own use, or to send to friends
East or West.
The terms of subscription are $2.50 per year, and only
$^.00 in clubs of four or more.
