Singlc numbers in wrappcrs ready for maiting may- bc hnd at the oflicc of publication frte, by those who may wish to send a copy to thci'r friends. This numbcr of the Farmer is sent to some of the Icading nL'riculturists in the statc and out of it, in the hopc thatthcy will be plcascd with its appcarancc and forward thcir sub-scriptions. Itwill be uselcss to order the Farmkr un- lcss the pay accompanies the order. The margin of profit left us is too small to allow us to pay any attcntion to collections or keeping books. The Farmer is printcd in convenient form for binding, and we would bc glad to have subscribcrs .preserve each numbcr for that purposc. An index will be printcd with the !ast numberof the volumc, making it a very uscful book for refcrencc. Papers on Trial. We desirc that all subscriptions. shall be at least for onc yenr, but to those who may not be rcady to sub scribe for a year, but would likc to try the paper, we will send it three months for twen ty-fivc ccnts, paid in advancc. Wc give no prcmiums and have no' club ratcs. All sUch gratuitics we glve votTTJr the subscnption pnce,. feeling assurcd that each subscriber would prcfcr to keep in his pocket the extra twenty-fivc or fifty cents he would othcrwise have to pay us. As our lcrms are fay in advatice no one will have any difliculty in stopping his paper. at ai.l papers will stop when thc subscriptions expire, unlcss renewed, but we shall endeavor to notify each subscriber at the time his subscription cxpires. Rathcr than to forcc a paper upon a subscriber we shall endeavor to make it so valuable that no onc can afford to bc without it. Our Terms. As we are a firm believer in small profits and largc sales, wc have fixcd the subscription price of the Farmer at the very small sum of $1.00 per annum in a"d vance, at which it will only be remunerative with a large circulation. The first part of the contract then, the small profits, is settled in advancc, and now if those in whose intereits we labor will pretty generally respond to the second part in advancc, the success of our en- terprise is certain, We believe they will, and that the Farmer, in due time, will rcap a fruitful harvest. Book-Binding. We are agent for the largest and bdst Book-Bindery in Vermont or New Hampshire, that of the Claremont Man Ufachtring Company, and take orders fqr binding magazines, papers, sheet music, pic tures, or any thing that anyof dur friends may wish to have put into a neat and serviccable binding, and dellver the work at the Farmer Ofiice, at the same prices you would have to pay were you to goto the bindery yourself, the Company paying frcight both ways. We are sending work to the bindery very often, so that orders may be brought in any time, and they will go with the next lot. Samples may VERMONT IIISTOIUOAL GAZETTEEK. vot. 1.
