Not illustrated. 1872 edition. Excerpt: ...endeavor to interest some suitable person in this service? We take the opportunity of renewing our suggestion t: at each of our readers will endeavor to send us at least one new name for our list. Such encouragement, added to what we have already received, will enable us to make Hie American Farmer still more useful and worthy of its friends. Special Premium. We have determined, in order to stimulate the making up of small clubs for the Farmer, to present as an inducement the following offer: Any person sending us four subscribers at o"r regular rate of $1.50, will receive free, by mill, A Globe Microscope, the retail price of which, pre-paid, is $2.75. This instrument is claimed to magnify 100 diameters, or 10,00t times, is made of brass, and from the inspection and trial we have made of it, is very effective. It would afford an unceasing fund of amusement and entertainment for any household, is simple, but efficient, and the ofler we make places it within reach of every boy (and girl too) in the sections where the Farmer goes. The manufacturer will also supply the microscope at the price named, by mail, or at $2.50 at our office. To Our Co-respondents.--We are very much gratified with the numerous able and interesting communications we are receiving for our columns. Our space is so limited that we are sometimes reluctantly compelled to allow some of these to go over, but we hope this will not be considered as an indication that they are not welcome. We must give place first to those most pertinent to the season, and with some we may be constrained to make some abbreviations, but we hope we may be continued to be favored by all who have anything to recount which will be of service or interest to their fellow agriculturists.
