The ESTEY ORGAN COMPANY are the pioneers in the
making of organs especially designed for the use of Churches, Chapels,
Lodge Rooms, Schools, and Missions.

Through a long series of years they have been constantly experi-
menting both in outward designs and inward scope and power. It has
been their constant endeavor to offer the largest possible amount of
“ music” for the lowest possible price.

Much has been written in years past concerning the inception
and growth of the Estey Organ Industry, but of its magnitude at the
present time there is comparatively little knowledge in the public mind.
As with many a noble life, its struggles for existence were neither few
nor insi ynificant. The year 1846 witnessed the production of the first
Melodeon, and each succeeding year has marked its upward course
until now 160,000 Estey Organs are making the world better and hap-
pier three hundred and sixty-five days in a year.

SPURGEON'S GOLD.

Right principles are spiritual gold, and he that hath them, and is ruled by them, is the man who truly lives.

The Lord would not have spirituality divorced from

common sense.

Man is all outside to God.

I always delight in a man who can afford to go about his life-work without fuss, bluster, or loud announcement.

Usefulness is as possible in obscurity as in publicity.

To wait is much wiser than, when you cannot hear the fog-horn and have no pilot, to steam on and wreck your vessel on the rocks.

It is hell to live without a Saviour.

Lose your head and you lose the battle. Lose your heart and you

have lost all. In the struggle of life a cheerful fearlessness is a grand assistance.

Though you have a clear head and can stand in a dangerous place, I would not recommend you to go there if somebody else would thus be placed in danger.

Skillful mariners sail by all winds, and we ought to make progress through all circumstances.

I saw the other day the emblem of a serpent with its tail in its mouth, and if I carry it a little beyond the artist's intention the symbol may set forth appetite swallowing up itself.

Giving to God is no loss; it is putting your substance into the best bank.

Let us not seek to alter our destiny, but let us try to make the best of our circumstances.

While apostolic men looked for the coming of Christ, they looked for it with no idea of dread, but, on the contrary, with the utmost joy.

A notable divine once gave this direction : “The way to heaven is, turn to the right and keep straight on." I would add, turn when you come to the cross. Only one turn is needed, but that must be a thorough turn and one in which you persevere.

God loves to discover even the shadow of faith in his unbelieving creatures.

Sinners may go unpunished for many a bright hour of the morning of life, but as the day grows older the shadows fall and their way is clouded over.

I believe that there is not a moral truth in the Book of Proverbs which does not also wear a spiritual aspect.

The poorest way is better than none, and the humblest office is better than being out of employment.

A very small graveyard will be big enough to bury all the good people who die through giving up their drop of beer.

To go willfully into temptation is comparable to the crime of arson, in which a man collects combustible materials and secretly kindles them, that his house may be burned down.

History certainly repeats itself within the Chuch of God as well as outside of it.

Modern thought labors to get away from what is obviously the meaning of the Holy Spirit, that sin was lifted from the guilty and laid upon the innocent.

Our Lord's spirituality is not of that visionary sort which despises the feeding of hungry bodies. Look after His poor and needy ones. How can you be truly spiritual if you do not so?

He who holds back a soul from Jesus is the servant of Satan, and is doing the most diabolical of all the devil's work.

It is shameful and beyond endurance to see how genteel swindling is winked at by many.

The power to receive is scarcely a power, and yet it is the only power needed for salvation. Come along and take what Christ doth freely give you.

Suppose an accident should take away our lives ; I smile as I think that the worst thing that could happen would be the best thing that could happen. If we should die, we should but the sooner be “ forever with the Lord.”

The publican's prayer so pleased the Lord Jesus Christ, who heard it, that He condescended to become a portrait painter, and took a sketch of the petitioner.

Pain and depression of spirit, endured in early life, have prepared many to sympathize with the unhappy, and to live a life of benevolence.

I will die with my face toward God and holiness.

If you are not saved it is not because God will not or cannot save you; it is because you refuse to accept His mercy in Christ.

Your non-searching of the Scriptures, your weariness under Gospel preaching, your want of care to understand the mind of God, is prima facie evidence that there is some enmity in your heart against the Most High.

If we live near to God we cannot sin without incurring sharp rebukes.

There is no having influence over the great men or the little men of this age except by being firm in your principles and decided in what you do. If you yield an inch you are beaten ; but if you will not yield-no, not the splitting of a hair—they will respect you.

Would to God that the best that could happen to all men did happen to them.

The most careful driver one day upset the cart.

We are soon coming out of the eggshell of time, and when we break loose into eternity and see the vastness of the divine purposes, we shall be altogether amazed at the service bestowed, which will be the reward of service done.

Dogs will go mad with their muzzles on, and so will men sin despite the restraints of law.
