“And the night shall be filled with niusic,

And the cares that infest the day

Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,

And as silently steal away."-Long fellow.

THE AUTOPHONE IN THE FAMILY.

THE BEST CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S GIFT IS AN AUTOPHONE,

THE LATEST MUSÏCAL MARVEL

The AUTOPHONE is unequalled for Durability, Power, and Sweetness of Tone.

Style A with 22 notes-six more than is contained in any other like instrument, and plays in three different keys; both Melody and Accompaniments being perfect.

The Autophone with six tunes, or ten feet of sacred or secular music, free per parcel post, on receipt of P.0.0. for 258.

NO HOME SHOULD BE WITHOUT ONE. The Autophone is the most marvellous Musical Instrument of the Age, and is protected by Patents all over the world. No more Organ Grinding or Crank Motions, as, viz.:--the Organena, Organette, Cabinette, &c., so distasteful to all players on these instruments. The Autophone is played by simply opening and shutting the hand, a movement at once both natural and elegant. (See Drawing.) We put this instrument before you solely on its own merits, and with confidence that it will give you complete satisfaction.

The leading journal, The Scientific American, says, ---" The most remarkable feature of this invention is the regularity and perfection with which the music is rendered. All of the parts are played, and the music is of no mean order."

Price of Style C, with Six Tunes, £2 10s.

£3 IOs. (IN BLACK WALNOT, WITH GILT DECORATIONS), Being only about a quarter of the price charged for other

instruments of equal capability. The Concert Autophone, containing, as it does, the large number of 32 Notes, is capable of rendering a vast range of music of all kinds. It is operated on by the hand in an easy and natural way that is far preferable to the Crank or Organ Grinding Motion. Occupying, as it does, but a small portion of space, and costing less than a quarter of the price of any instrument of equal capability, we look for it to become a great favourite as it becomes known. It is handsomely finished in Black Walnut, or can be made in Cherry Wood,' Ebonized, or Ash Wood N.B.–Before purchasing a Musical Instrument of any description, send for our New Illustrated Customers' Privilege Price List for 1883 and 1884, containing

TO INVALIDSI IMPORTANTI
How often have you read this and similar advertisements,
and yet you still continue to suffer. Why? You say
-Oh! I have tried so many things--all sorts of medicines,
the best medical skill-all without avail

, and how is it possible that your magnetic appliances can do me any good? I answer - The greater reason- - Magnetism will cure when all other means have failed; this has been attested by hundreds of once-suffering invalids who are now rejoicing in the blessings of restored health. Then why not in your case? Remember people do not try Magnetism first. In most cases it is the last resort, and when you consider the number of testimonials given (which only represents a minimum of the wonderful cures actually effected, and these in cases where all other means have failed), I say there is hope for you still. Try it! It is not expensive. Hundreds affirm it is worth ten times its cost. It cures without medicine restraint of diet, or occupation. Its healing power is gentle, though effectual. The strongest man is made to feel its potency, and it is likewise quite harmless to the weakest invalid or infant. Why not decide to-day? The longer you wait the more difficult and complicated will be your case, Try Magnetism and Galvanism. Electricity will do what nought else can do. Its power is boundless; it invests everything with life, energy, and sunshine, and a deficiency is the cause of disease, gloom, and unhappiness. The “Wilsonia" is the only appliance that generates electricity, and consequently is the only ElectroMagnetic Appliance invented.-To be obtained only of Mr. WILSON, 128 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow. Buy the "Wilsonia" and no other, to avoid disappointment as others
