Iliustration !
Xkw SunsCitiitEits. A person deslring to
gub-cribo goes to tlie ngency ho may profer,
lly complying wlth the terms of tho offer be
gfrta hls llour, the agent gives hlm a rcceipt for
the Watciiman for ono year, and the paper
wlll be sent from this ofilce. Old Snsscnnmiis
who have paid np to or beyond January 1,
1883, by exhlbiling their recelpt or their
Watciiman to any of the dealers named, can
tako advantage of this offer. Subcrlbers who
havo not pald up to January 1, 1883, should
remit to the Watciiman ofilce the f ull amonnt
due up to that date, or beyond, and get a
recelpt therefor.
John Smlth has pald for hls paper to Feb
ruary, 1882, or Jaraes Jones has pald to De-
cember, 1880; eitber of these subscribers by
paylng in f ull up to January 1, 1883, or bevond,
and by Bhowing hls recelpt to any of tho
dealers named can taheadvantageof this offer,
and so with any other subscribers in arrears.
The Reason Why
the publisher is able to mako the above Hberal
offer is this: His arrangeinent wlth the dealers
named enables hlm to get from them the prlco
of tho Watciiman, thtts ndvancing at the
same time the interest of the subsctlber, tho
niercbants and the publisher.
This Proposal
will reniain open until July Uth, and will be
subject to changes in the" marhet price of
flour, guaranteelng the buyer always the
same relatire adYantago.
Flour is a staple article of household use. It
the barrel is not empty to-day, It may be soon j
and tho wise man, although not in immediato
want, wlll take advantage of this offer. Deal
ers unlto In warning consumers that the prlce
of llour wlll, without doubt, soon advance.
3ub-crlbe early and save another pfnny.
Many acknowledge the preat superlority of
the Watciiman, who nevertheless are induced
bylowptices to take papers whlch are manl
festly Inferior to It In all that constittitesagood
local and fatnlly journal. The publisher's Hb
eral offer disarins all such objections. It
bringa the enlarged eight-page Watciiman,
with iu select, polltical, family and rellgloua
reading, Its good supply of local news, and its
unrivaled agricultural department wlthln the
pecunlary moans of eyery indlvidual.
To know the Watciiman well is to take It
continuously, as the great niass of Its sub
scribers have taken It for long terms of years.
To glve strangors nn opportunity to become
acquainted wlth Its merits, Is ln large part tho
motlve in maklng the above proposal. Snow

tho foldlng inaohhie. As traffio of all
kind3 developed and increased in the ear
lier days of newspapors, and tho deraands
of ad.verstisers for spaoo began to trench
on the dornain of the reading public, pub-
lishers from time to tirae enlarged their
old fashioned folio or four page sheot till
they becamo like blankets in size, and
as unmanageable as a cirous bill in tho
hands of the reader. Those great sheets
were so inconvenient that in oourse of
time the adoption of the quarto or eigH
page form became a rnatter of necessity, in
order that space and convenieuce, the
rights of advertisers and readors, miglit
bear a due relation to each other. But
with the general reader the " bother " ci
opening a quarto sheet and refoldingnt,
or of stiching the paper and cutting the
leaves in oidsr to get at the inside pages.
haa been so much of a difQculty or por
plexity as to be in a large measure a bar
to the reading of the inside of a newspa

prejudice on this sfiore against the quarlo
form that tnany papers have clung to the
old folio blanket sheet as involving fewer
disadvautages than the quarto. The in

The Watciiman, in adopting this won
derful invention, leads the van of the Ver
mont press. Its Stonemelz foldor, a cut
of which is given above, does its work as
rapidly as the papers are delivered from
the new newspaper printing press of
greatly increased capacity, which also has
recently been put into this office. It not
only perfortns tho work of sevoral girls in
the single rnatter of folding, but Binniltrv
neously with the folding it does what it
would be utterly iuipracticable to under-
take to do by hand, pastes the sheets and
cuts the edges. The two machines together
give Tiin Watciiman ofiice facilities un
rivaled in this state for the expeditious
publishing of a uewfcpaper, with all the
latest advautages to readers aud adver
tisers, in form and make-up. We expect to
see our enterprising conteraporaries make
haste to follow the scriptural injunction,
and one by one to " go and do likewise."

singing by the little ones was good, but few
hoitatlng or making mlstakei. About thirty
of the little ones took part. To particularize
