The Great Trial of Seiinn Machines!

K THE GEANDEST IN THE WOBLD ! !

) \ The Judges, the whole World, and the Trial fifteen
Years Duration.



PRACTICAL USE IS THE TEST.

THE UNIVEESAL VERDICTS:

The Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine

THE CHAMPION.

The Wheeler & Wilson, as is well known, has won at nearly every trial in which it has competed, the
highest award of merit. The representatives of other machines, ever confident, have entered the lists
time and again, only to be defeated, and finding it impossible to compete fairly, have endeavored to
decry the value of premiums. They are not slow, however, to boast of the few they have received.
But in the grand trial daily u?e throughout the world, where only true merit finds favor and superi-
ority wins the race the Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine, stands triumphantly the champion by the
verdict of the people.

These Machines are adapted to ever variety of Sewing, from the lightest muslins to the heaviest cloths.
They work equally well upon Silk, Linen, Woolen, or Cotton Goods, with Si]k, Linen or Cotton Thread,
Seaming, Quilting, Gathering, Hemming, Felling, Cording, Tucking, Braiding, Embroidering, and
making Button Holes, with the greatest facility.

If it be inconvenient tor the purchaser to visit the Salesroom, the order may be forwarded to the office,
and it will be as faithfully filled as if the selection had been made personally. Full instructions, recently
compiled, and giving full" iniormation upon every point in detail, accompany each Machine, and enable
the most inexperienced to operate without difficulty. Our interest in the successful working of each
Machine is not second to that of the purchaser, and we esteem it a privilege to aid, by correspondence
or otherwise, any person requiring it.

" A single term -would characterize them as " beautiful " in its truest and best sense. " Deep, trustful piety
a fervid fancy, a spiritual imagination, poetic expression, powerful persuasion, and withal a practical, broad
vision of human needs are seen in them all." S. S. Times.

"Twenty of Dr. Watls worth's unsurpassed sermons rich in thought, glowing with emotion, exquisite
imagery, abundant streams from the fountains of truth."- The Occident.

" In these pages there is so much vigorous thought, so much finely expressed spiritual indignation at wrong,
so many bold conceptions, ingenious turns, instances of the argument ad hominem, and more than all, the free
play of so rich an imagination, that the sermons make a most attractive and readable and even elevating
volume." The American Presbi/terian

"The topics are felicit'ously chosen, the range being wide and comprehensive. There is an affluence of lan-
guage and a crowding of thought and metaphor, which well illustrates the force and glow of Dr. Wadsworth's
pulpit discourses." Evening Bulletin.

" These sermons grow out of a text as from a seed. They abound in illustrations, thrown out in profusion by
a vivid and rich imagination. They are braced by an argument which gives them strength as well as beauty
forthe power of logic always underlies Dr. Wadsworth's highly wrought imagery. 1 ' The Presbyterian.

" There is an elevated tone and felicitiousness of expression running through this volume, winch renders it
admirably adapted for private reading." The Pacific.

" Twenty of Dr. Wadsworth's best sermons each one a gem." The Spectator.

" The theology is sound, the thoughts are sublime, the language classic, the imagery grand, the illustrations
apt, the application practical, the pervadinc spirit that of earnestness and piety. "Daily Times.

"Clear, practical, earnest and fresh." The Advocate.

"The subjects give a marked impression of variety and originality, and their very names stimulate thought
and curiosity." Ihe Spare Hour.

GYMNASTIC SWING

Patented June 25, 1867.

THE OBJECT OF THIS INVEN-
tion is to provide a Swing which
can be impelled bv the person occu-
pying it. In cities the facilities for
exercise for children, especially for
girls, are very limited. By the use of
tliis Spring a very beneficial exercise
is obtained. It will readily be seen
that the exertion employed in alter-
nately pushing and pulling at the
levers of the >wing affords the best
possible exercise for the chest and
arms a fact which should especially
encourage its introduction into families and public
play-grounds. '1 hese Swings are made either STA-
TION ARY or POK TABLE. The Portable or Parlor
Swing can be made of suitable sizes for rooms, and can
be put up and taken down very readily.

LASSITUDE.

A feeling of lassitude is generally experienced
throughout the summer solstice. Weakly consti-
tuted persons or those of sedentary habits inva-
riably complain of this annoyance. The scorch-
ing heat of mid-summer relaxes the system and
reduces the vital energies. If the patient is of a
nervous temperament this debility unfits him for
even the ordinary routine of every-day life. When
this state of exhaustion comes on, HOSTET-
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS will prove a safe
and never-failing means of strengthening and
restoring the physical organization. This health-
giving tonic purifies and infuses renewed vitality
into the blood, tones the stomach and digestive
organs, and acts like a charm on the nervous sys-
tem. It effectually removes all tendency to lan-
guor or depression of spirits. To the weaker sex
it is invaluable, as it soothes and braces up, while
its powerful effects are of the most beneficial
character. The infirmities of ase are alleviated
by its use. It revives the strength, increases the
appetite and gives vigor and elasticity to the con-
stitution.

When mothers are nursing, HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS should especially be taken
in regular doses, as in this country, most always,
the nourishment is inadequate to the wants of the
child. In such cases this inestimable tonic is
wonderfully efficacious. Its strengthening virtues
are at once apparent. It is free from all proper-
ties calculated to impair the system, and its opera-
tions are at once mild and soothing.
