It is admitted that Clothing Manufacturers are the beat judges of SEWING MACHINES. Please Read Their Opinions, viz., The New Wheeler and Wilson has more than realised our expectations as to speed, durability, and also in Economising Labor, our work people express a decided preference for them on account of the eace with which they are worked. — Beath, Schibss, & Co., Clothing Manufacturers, Flinders Lane, West. For Hat Binding and Cap Making the Wheeler and Wilson Machines are ti e best we have in use ; they do more work and require less labor than any others we have tried.—A. Masters & Co., 50, Princess street, Dunedin. We use Wheeler and Wilson Machine and find it superior to any other, both for Economy, Efficiency and Speed, to any other we have tried. —I. and A. Don, Dressmakers, Duncan street, Dunedin. We have had Wheeler and Wilson Machines in use for the last three years ; we find them more suitable than any other machines and very durable.— Yates Sons & Co., Drapers, George street, Dunedin.
I have pleasure in stating that the Wheeler and Wilson Machines have given me entire satisfaction. 1 consider it a better machine for work than any ocher I have tried.— Petek Stewart, Draper, " Great King street, Dunedin. I like the Wheeler and Wilson better than any other machines I have used, it is lighter to work, much faster, and for dressmaking, etc., it cannot be surpassed. M.

MELBOURNE EXHIBITION, 1881 Extract from the Jury Report on Sewing Machines—“ The Premier Place was awarded to a Wheeler and Wilson Machine, which performed the feat of sewing together all the parts of a pair of moleskin trousers in nine (9) minutes, doing its work smoothly and well. ” i ONLY GRAND GOLD PRIZE, PARIS EXHIBITION, 1878. BEATING ALL COMPETITORS. The new Straight Needle Wheeler and Wislon have no shuttles, they have no cogwheels, they have no heavy gear to tire and weary the feet. It is evident that the rotary motion of the Wheeler and Wilson has much less friction than the shuttle movement of other machines, therefore the Wheeler and Wilson is much more durable, and needs less repair. The New Wheeler and Wilson has mo.'e and greater improvements than any other sewing machine, and is the fastest, making over 1,000 stitches per minute. CAUTION. Beware of Hawkers and also Puffing Advertisements of inferior Hard-running Machines which are highly injurious to the health of the operator. Inspect the New Wheeler and Wilson ROTARY ACTION MACHINES And judge for yourselves. They run by hand and foot, and are warranted to give entire satisfaction. TIME PAYMENTS. TIME PAYMENTS.
