I found this powerful magnifying glass in among my paternal grandfather's matchbox-collecting things.

It may be powerful, but that doesn't mean you can make out what it's being used to magnify. It's like the glass in a mercury thermometer: you have to stand at just the right angle to see it enlarge, and it only works for a very thin thread.

Never mind that, though. What I want to know is why the box demonstrates the use of the magnifying glass for a "one extremely cart" bargain, whatever one of those is.
