INTAGLIO SCRIPTURE TEXT CARDS, ETC.

----------

This year we determined to lay in a large stock of the newest motto and text cards earlier than usual. Four large orders have already come to hand and the fifth is en route. Some of the older styles cannot be surpassed and these we have re-ordered; but the line of new styles of new texts this year is so large that we can send you all new ones, if you so request when ordering. Our facilities for importing these from London (their principal market) is unsurpassed, and our prices are about one-half those usually charged; namely, from 1c to 25c each--according to size, etc. For your convenience we will put these up in packages assorted for $1.00 and $2.00, including postage;-- from 15c downward in the $1.00 packages and from 25c down in the $2.00 packages. We will also make up some packages containing mottoes at 10c and downward, for 50c, including postage.

These beautiful cards should be in all the rooms of all of our homes. The help, comfort and rest thus brought to our hearts continually from the Master's Word are of inestimable value as aids and stimulants in the "narrow way" we seek to walk. The texts are admirably selected --about one-half of them for the consecrated, some suitable to any one, and a few suggestive of the Lord's willingness to bless all who, hearing his voice, come unto him. Some are on dark cards stamped in silver, others on light cards in colors. All are very tasteful,--fit for any wall.

SCRIPTURE STUDIES IN LEATHER BINDING.

----------

Many of the friends desire copies of "The Divine Plan of the Ages" (Vol. I.) for holiday presentations, so we give timely notice that we are now preparing a special leather-bound edition, with gilt edges, under the general title, "Studies in the Scriptures" instead of "Millennial Dawn." These will be ready November 1st and will cost WATCH TOWER subscribers 65 cents each, including postage,--to any address.

----------

POLISH TRACTS can now be supplied to all who have special opportunities for using them. They are published by our Society, although our name and address does not appear on them, because of prejudice of Catholics against everything like Bible Societies.

----------

ITALIAN DAWN, VOL. I., and sample TOWERS have now arrived. Send us your orders.

GERMAN AND SWEDISH TOWERS can now be supplied regularly.

TRACTS FOR COUNTRY FAIRS.

----------

Country Fair Time is upon us. These fairs furnish favorable opportunities for reaching the farming communities with morsels of spiritual food;--a class more difficult to reach than city folk;--a thoughtful, reading class, too. We will be glad to supply the tracts freely, but urge that judgment be used in distribution--wherever possible.

THE TITLE OF THE DAWNS.

----------

It is not our thought to abandon the now so well-known title, MILLENNIAL DAWN. But since many of its enemies have misrepresented it in public and in private the new title is proposed to save colporteurs (in some quarters) the time and trouble of explaining away the lies--of showing that it not only is not "an infidel book," against the Bible, but the very reverse, a Bible Key or Studies in the Scriptures. The books under the new title will not be ready for some time, but meantime colporteurs preferring this edition may order it and get the old edition until we get caught up.
