FAVORABLE METHODS OF SERVICE.

----------

The chiefest service we could commend, open to all who are unencumbered and in active use of their faculties, is the Colporteur work. It is an honorable form of ministering the truth from house to house, as the apostles served. It is a service which the Lord seems to have blessed as much or more than any other for gathering the "wheat." It is apparent at once to all that to sell such books as the DAWNS at 35 cents each, cannot be for money-making: that it is merely another way of preaching the truth. No other religious books are sold at any such price. Indeed, few subscription books sell for less than two to three dollars each. Any who can serve in this work are invited to write to us for "Hints to Colporteurs."

EMPHATIC DIAGLOTT, LEATHER EDITION.

----------

We are mailing this edition to all whose orders are now in, and all new orders will have prompt attention.

In cloth binding, the price is $1.50, a year's subscription being given free with each.
