Renewals of old subscriptions are always in order, and are receivable at this office, no matter by whom the original subscription was obtained. We find that where subscriptions are originally obtained by agents, there is a strong disposition to wait until the agent can “call again” before renewing the subscription. This is very well where we have a local agent, for in that case the agent is sure to call. But a large part of our list of subscribers is obtained by traveling agents, who cannot go back promptly to call on parties when their subscriptions expire. E. g., on the 1st of July about three hundred and fifty of our subscriptions expired; we have not been able to send an agent after them, and very few have as yet responded to our postal card notification. We beg that our friends will help us to secure new subscribers, and to induce old ones to renew. And we are very anxious to secure reliable agents in every community. We can afford to pay liberal commissions to efficient agents, and we beg that our friends will help us to obtain such agents.
