We desire to call the personal and
immediate attention of each and every
one of our readers to the exceptional
terms upon w hich we are prepared to
offer the representative journal of
Agriculture, Farm And Home, in coo
nection with this paper. Everywhere
throughout the country Farm And
nome is shown and recognised as a
journal ol the highest standard. Its
sound common sense, practical teach
ings, terse paragraphs, originality and
pluck have won foe it a place at the
head of the agricultural press. Its
immense circulation, exceeding 300,000
copies each issue, is in itself a telling
testimonial of its practical value and
intrinsic worth. Our subscribers will
do well to read the announcement and
ami I themselves of an opportunity to
secure, at a trifling cost, a paper which
will return them thousand per cent on
the investment in the nseful hints and
teachings to be obtained from its
perusal. To all we say, try Farm And
Uome a year, and you will never regret
it. A copy of Homemade Contrivances.
