MISSIONARY ENVELOPES

----------

These are now in stock in large quantity. Every letter you send through the mail may be a more or less potent messenger of the Truth, even on its outside, by the use of these envelopes. They catch the attention not only of those to whom they are addressed, but postmen and others have an opportunity, and sometimes the curiosity, to read their message of peace--the gospel in condensed form. Price, 25c per 100, postpaid.

"DUE TIME" MOTTOES

----------

This motto, the text for the year (see TOWER, Jan. 1, '06), is now in stock again, in good quantity. Price, 10c each; in lots of 5, 5c each, postpaid.

INDIA PAPER VOL. I. OUT OF STOCK

----------

This handsome little volume is out of stock, and the difficulty of procuring India paper will hinder our filling orders for several months. Vols. II. and III. can still be supplied at 68c each, postpaid.

----------

New lot of WATCH TOWER BINDERS expected about August 1st. Price, 50c each, postpaid.

ST. PAUL, MINN., AUGUST 13-19

----------

(For information respecting meetings, accommodations, etc., see last
page, this issue)

All railroads have granted a rate of one cent a mile on account of the G.A.R. Encampment at Minneapolis. Ask for "G.A.R. Excursion Ticket" to Minneapolis, although it will not be necessary to go to that city to fulfil conditions of the ticket. On arrival at St. Paul display a WATCH TOWER at railway station for purpose of identification; but be not disappointed if you meet no one you know. The letter sent you gives explicit directions for reaching the lodgings secured for you by the Committee.

TO FRIENDS GOING TO ST. PAUL VIA CHICAGO:

The Chicago Church advise that about sixty of them expect to leave in a body on Sunday night, Aug. 12, due to arrive in St. Paul early Monday morning. They have made arrangements with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry. Co. to supply them special coaches fitted with reclining chairs (without extra charge). Others may take advantage of the same arrangement by at once notifying the C.M.& St.P. agent, C.M. Southern 315 Marquette Building, Chicago stating the number in your party, and whether to expect you on the 6.30 or the 10.30 p.m. train. The 6.30 will carry most of the Chicago friends. If you reach Chicago in season for the 3 p.m. meeting, go to the meeting room, 26 Van Buren St.
