OCTOBER 2, 1869. 7hevalue of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN as an advertising medium cannot be over estimated. Its circulation is ten times greater than that of any similarjournal now published. It goes into all the States and Territories, and i8 read ih all the vrincipal libraries and reading-roorns oj tile world. We invite the attention of those who wish to make their bu8iness known to the annexed rates. A business man wants something more than to see his advertisement in a printed newspaper. He wants circulation. If it is worth 2525 cents per line to advertise in a paper of three thousand circulation, it is worth $250 per line to advertise in one of thirty thousand. RATES OF ADVERTISING.
