Will he found to excel all others. The ease with which it runs, its ready adaptation to all
kinds of work without delay or hesitation, its quiet fidelity, its
Superior^ Strength and Durability of Work,
are points that astonish anil delight all who make its acquaintance. Ladies who are unfa
miliar with this Machine, do not yet know the full blessing and comfort of a Sewing Ma
chine in the family, though they may possess many others and think they are satisfied.
In proof of this assertion is the significant fact,
That Us strongest advocates and most enthusiastic admirers are always found among
Iho se who have used and arc most familiar with other leading machines.
From the thousands of testimonials from all parts of the country, we select the following
from the city of Augusta :
AUGUSTA, March, 1870.
Having used the Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine in our respective families upon
all the various kinds of work required, some of us from one to six years, others for
a shorter time, some of us also being familiar with the use of other leading machines,
we cheerfully recommend it as a most excellent family machine. It runs easily and
quietly, is simple and easy in its management, does not get out of order, is always
ready, its work is strong and durable, and in all respects gives most entire satisfaction

A PORTRAIT OF WESLEY
“Seldom have I seen,” says a biogra
pher of John Wesley, in Herder's Adrasler,
"a more beautiful old man. A serene and
smooth countenance, an arched nose, the
clear and most piercing eye, a fresh col
or, quite unusual to one of his age, and be
traying perfect health—all this gives him
an exterior at once interesting and venera
ble. You could notsee him withoutbeing
struck with his appearance. Many per
sons who were full of prejudice and oppo
sition to him before seeing him acquired
quite a different opinion of him after mak
ing his jtersonal acquaintance. There was
a mingling of cheerfulness and seriousness
in his voice, and in all his conduct. He
was very sprightly, and one could not but
notice the quick variability of his animal
spirits, through deep peace reigned within
him. If you were to see his profile, it
would indicate great acuteness of under
standing. His dress was a model of neat
ness and simplicity : a thrice-folded neck
cloth, a coat with a narrow standing collar,
no knee-buckles, nor silk nor satin on his
whole body, but crowned with snow-white
hair. These gave him the apperance of
an apostle. Cleanliness and order shone
out from all his person.
“In social life, Weslev was livelv and
communicative, lie had neen much among
men ; he was full of anecdotes and expe
riences, which he related willingly, and,
what is not of less importance, well. He
could be very cheerful and pleasant. His
elasticity of spirits communicated itself to
others, and suffered so little beneath tlie
weakness of age or the approch of death,
that no one could think In* had been as
happy in his twentieth as he was in Iris
eightieth year. His temperance remarka
ble ; in his early life he carried it much too
far. He commenced fasts, and other
forms of self-denial, at Oxford, and in
dulged in but little sleep, but toward the
close ol his life he relaxed somewhat from
this rigid regimen. In thirty-five years he
did not have to lie in bed one day.
“Wesley was one of the most industri
ous of men. Even yet he has not ceased
to travel. If he had not possessed the art
of dividing his time .very systematically,
he could not have done what he has. But
ever}' item of business has its own hour.
He went to bed between nine and ten
o’clock, and rose at four. No society, no
conversation, however pleasant, nothing
but a ease of sheer necessity, could induce
him to break his rules. In the same me
thodical way he wrote and travelled, and
visited the sick. It has been calculated
that he delivered 40,400 discourses, to say
nothing of the multitude of addresses he
made to his society and classes. In his
early life, he travelled on horse-back.
The reins resting on the horse’s neck, he
held his book before his eyes, and studied,
lie had many an adventure on horse-back.
It is thought that iu fifty years he travelled
280,000 English miles. In addition to this
comes his great authorship. He composed
hymns and added melodies. He made
singing doubly pleasant, for he had the
male and female voices interchange parts;
he appointed singing exercises, so that
when there was no organ in the chapel, its
place might be amply supplied by accom
plished vocalists; he sometimes made sa
cred music the subject of discourses. The
siqging of many thousands of Methodists
in. the open fields, in forests, or grave
yards, was sometimes followed by won
derful effects.”
