We find it a necessity to increase the price of the subscription of the magazines to our Canadian subscribers. This is because of postal rates, paper, wages and difference in the dollar value. After July 1st, 1968 it will be $3.50 to Canada. All subscriptions paid before this time will be accepted at $3.00.
We still have trouble getting the expiration sheets in the magazines that should not have them. I guess we always will. It is so easy to do. One thing if you find a red mark on the envelope flap inside and you think you should not have had a notice then write us. That would mean there is likely to be a mistake on our books. Otherwise ignore it as some one has made a mistake in putting the magazine in the envelope and it will be all O.K. as time goes on.
Because of illness we have moved the office to 808 Wertzville Road and the telephone is 732-2023. Please use this number and telephone for prompt service. We thank you for bearing with us in these trying times.
The New Florida Show seems to have come off with Flying Colors. Congratulations!
As we write this, March 12th we just had another snow. It came in the night and I was not up to see what direction it came from hence I am uncertain who to blame it on. If I knew I would not speak to him again.
Mr. C. F. Long of No. 7 Rd., Ashburton, Canterbury, New Zealand sent us a calendar with color photos of that beautiful country. We have marked the paydays on it and our office force is being paid by New Zealand calendar. It seems to work well, Thanks C. F.
In some of my reading of the early settlement of our country I came across this interesting statement.
'Some Western homesteaders acquired steam powered farm machines before they were able to enjoy the benefits of steam-powered rail transportation. In December, 1870, a settler near Hell Gale, Montana wrote to the Wood, Taber & Morse Company, Eaton, New York. 'Your engine is a rare sight in these mountains. Some of the old mountaineers have come down the valley and camped for two or three days to see the machine and listen to the whistle of my agricultural steam engine.'
