fe. tlhe call to leave Bristol and take
up mssion work in the city of Lon
don, he and ihis beloved wife were
mucra troubled for want of a house
to live in. They at last betook them
selves to prayer. The answer to that
prayer is Qne of she romances of
Methodism. It came in the shape of
a letter from a rich wijow who offer

be used as their own.
W6th his devoted wife, Sarah, and
his 'two little sons settled in his home,
Wesley used to ride about the lanes
of the village (as it was then) on a
plump gray pony, busy. with -his mis
sion work and composing 'his fambuS
hymns as he rode. He was so absent

best friends wvhel they met him. The
sight of his' rosy, handsome face and
'his stout figure, clad in the blue coat
which had served him many years,
was a signal- for those who knew him
best to run out and forcibly seize his
bridle, and thus insure the merry,
fatherly greeting which 'he was ready
to give once his attention was arrest
When a special inspira'tion came to
him during one of this rides, he would
drop the reins, place his hands on
his hips an;d, turning his iblue eyes
to heaven, become, oblivious to all

him .h-e did not heed, but looking
blankly at the speaker and rode on.
If he came to a house 'he would sud
denly dismount, tie his pony to the
railings, and, entering, whether he
knew 'the people or not, violently de
manded paper and pen to set down
hi's preious thoughts. When this
was done 'he would awake to con
sci.ousness of 'his surroun-dings and,
turning, woul.d say "Peace to this
house," so sweetly that' all hearts
were won and all breaches of etiquette
li1 spite of his seeming dissent, he
came to be one of the 'beloved cele
brities of the place, as h'e 'spent 'his
'busy life' in mission wo.rk, preach
ing in the open air, and singing his
own' hymns in his sweet baritone
voice on the 'streets at t'h'e' outdoor
services. His .personality was ex
tremely attractive. He was larger,
stouter, more genial than his brother,
John, but with the same 'handsome,
'clear-cut features. His wife and chil
dren adored him and thought nothing
too hard 'to 'do for him or to bear
from him. The rector of Maryle

and came to visit him constantly. in

It was in the churchyard at Mary
lebone that the singer was buried :by
his own wish when he died, at eighty
years of age. A grave had already
'been provided for him in City Road
Chapel, but he chose rather to lie
a't the' feet of the church 'that he had
loved, although she had 'spurned his
offices and 'despised 'his services. His
memory brings now hun'dreds every
year to visit the prim little church

DESIRABLE, WELL IMPROVED
I offer for sale, subject to the leases
on the property, two of the most con
veniently located and most desirable
h:>uses and lots in the city.
"The Brown place" on the corner of
Caldwell- and Boundary streets, con
taining-a half an acre, more or less,
with a good two story residence with
seven large rooms, besides large kitchen,
pantry and two bath rooms, house in
the yard, good barn and stables, good
garden. The residence has electric
lights, water works and sewerage, and
is the best property in the city for sale.
I also offer "The Metts place," on
the same square-lot about the same
size-with the most comfortable cot
tage on it in the place. It contains six
large comfortable rooms, besides large
kitchen and pantry, a two-room ser
vants house in the yard, a good gar
den and stables. The residence has
electric lights, water works and
sewerage, and is. a delightful home.
I improved both of these places for a
home for myself, and my object in sell
ing them now, is to use the money to
pay for the improvements I have put
on these places and my present .home,
and to put the balance in my business
which I bave enlarged in the past six
months, and which I hope to make still
larger than it is today. If you want a
valuable, convenient and comfortable
home this is your opportunity.
