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. Exampl.e! 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 Tllia OKKEW TO YOCIt FHIKNII1. AV. IV. l'HKSCOTT, I'ublUlior.

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 per in this form. So great has been the 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.

At first these machines were used only by city publishers. They have been adapted to the use of country establishments, and 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."
