MODERN HUMBUGGERY.
[American Farmers' Advocate. 1
'?Strange every young man in the United
States isn't a millionaire," might be the excla
mation ot' au unsuspecting person on readiDg
the extravagant offers of many advertisers.
Immense salaries are offered through uews{ a
per advertisements, and in respouse to inquir
ies circulars are sent explaning how the wages
nre to be earned. Here are a few samples:
Y-.u are offered $5 to $20 per day by Sanson
Co., $10 per day by Boweu & Co., $12 a day
by Hastings & Co., $2U per day by Stack pole,
*20 per day by Murray Hill Publishing Com
p:?ny, per day by C. Thorntou, &e. Neatly
all want agents tor some worthless little patent
or recipe, and your "salary" is only paid after
you have sold a certain amount of goods. Uu
"der n<> circumstances is au agent promised less
tiiau $5 a day, and from that up, up, up, till
we reach the "strictly" "sub rosa" proposal of
the counterfeit (saw dust) operator to pay $1,
UOO a day (o auy shrewd mau who is "up to
siiUtJ," &c., i. e., who is, to use uSut Luven
<iO"d'sM pet phrase, "a nat'ral born durn fool."
Au exception among advertisers is oue who
gunrautees $10 to $15 per day, sure. That's
fair, but rather indefinite.
"And still they come"?those Michigan
.swindlers. The last is G. W. Bodine <& Co..
and they'll pay everybody "$35 per week aud
ixj-cps-s." If we had to order a jewsharp
lr >ui -Maine or Michigan, we'd have it sent C.
and >ubject to be returned if we cheated.
Several bogus advertising agents have been i
reported lately, and publishers should be care- |
ful who they trust, it is generally the adver
tiser himself, who. wishing to get trusted,
sends his orders iu the name of some ficticious

' J. Wright & Co., New \ork, now advertise
the "Geneva Watch," the whole works ol
which being made of machinery, whicn turns
out G.OOD a day, the manufacturers are enabled
to offer them at four dollars cash. Of course
there never was a "Geneva," "Parisian, or
any other watch made for four dollars, hut
evidently a great mauy people accept the state
ment that it had beeu "accomplished at last.
ThU Wright is certainly a genius, but a very
evil one. He seems to be identified with as
many swindles as the notorious Ejias.
Cheap sewine machines are still ottered by
parties in New York and Newark. Never in

and there is ouly one of any value sold at that
11 Aud now these mothers-in-law are at it. Her
daughter, opposed to be dying with consump
tion, she appears to her distressed son-iulaw
in a dream, bids him go to the mountain* ot
Scotland in search of a mysterious 'yerb, which
being found is administered to the dying wite,
and instantly restores health by its magic pow
ers, and of course it is at once placed in the
leach of suffering humanity' by a dear old
philanthropist. This business seems to be
destined to take the place ot the declining
counterfeit game. .
\Ve have been asked, if patent med.cine.
are all more or less frauds how it is that they
report so many wonderful cures ( 1' irst, be
cause it would he difficult to compound amedi
cine which, administered in thousands ot cases,
wouid uot prove beneficial iu some ; second, it
lhe patient, while taking medicine, recovers
Iroui any other cause, he is sure to attribute it
to the mcdicinc; and, third, many ot the certi
lieates are forgeries. t . ,
Books, proposing to teach how to get rich,
are usually sterotyped lectures on the virtue
and value of economy, or a collection ot old re
cipes. Such notices as K. L. W oodcott s, 1

We hear of a rascal travelling through len
nessee, under various aliases, and swindling
Odd Fellows' h dges at a lively rate. \Yatch
for him, friends of the I. 0. 0. F., and it he
comes prowling around,, expecting charities be
cause he knows how to squeeze your hand ana
make signs, treat him to a free excursion on
your bicgest and most odorous biliy goat.
" Hubbard & Co., of New York, exposed last
month, are sending out lithographed letters
showing how railroad stocks fluctuate, and how
easily a fortune may be made by speculating
through their agency. Only one or two pro
minent stocks on the New lork market, or
Hubbard & Co.'s list, have varied enough in
the last thirty days to pay the cost ot a call,
"out." or "straddle," aud, c nscquently, not
one dollar in ten invested through them huds
its way back to the pockets whence it was ex
tracted by the honeyed arguments ot the swind
lers. About the sameras iuvesting your mouej

The set of cheats having their headquarters
at Garrettsville, Ohio are uot driving such a
business as formerly. Probablv hatching some
new fraud for the fall and winter campaign.
Goldsmith said he would uot think ot bringing
out a book in the dog days, and the swiudler?
seem to think it bad policy to risk their prcci
