SPECIAL EDITION OF THE LINEAR BIBLE.

We are glad to announce the completion of the printing of our new Bibles, with wide margins and references thereon to the five volumes of Millennial Dawn, and Tabernacle Shadows, and Zion's Watch Tower, 1895 to 1901. The binding and shipping will probably require some six weeks more. We regret the delay, but the time as well as the labor and expense were much more than contemplated at first. Its Topical Index alone will be of great value to us all as an aid in studying the divine Word. We trust that under the Lord's blessing this Bible will prove of inestimable value in the "perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry."

The total edition will be 5000 copies; and the interest felt in the work by our readers is manifest from the fact that nearly all of these books are already bespoken, and more than half of them paid for in advance. There will not be nearly enough to fill orders as soon as the books are seen and their value realized; but we see no prospect of getting out another edition.

ABOUT ORDERING DAWNS IN QUANTITIES.

We entertain but slight hope of a revision of the Postoffice rulings;--granting us the second class rates of postage on the Dawns, clearly our right under the law. We suggest to the friends, therefore, that in every little group one be chosen to act as agent for all, to procure the desired books and tracts by freight. Thus ordered the paper bound volumes would cost but ten cents, plus perhaps one or two cents per copy by freight.

OLD THEOLOGY TRACTS.

----------

Your recent valued orders for tracts have about exhausted our supply but plenty more are being printed, and orders will be filled soon; if not, order again.

THE NEW BIBLES WITH DAWN, ETC. REFERENCES.

----------

We have received a small sample lot of the new Bibles and they are very satisfactory. It will require considerable time to bind and prepare for shipment the entire 5,000; but some of them will go out soon. If your address has changed since you ordered, advise us at once of old and new residence, as labels are written as soon as payment is received.

We announced an advance of $1.00 on each style, after December 1, 1901; but we do not feel quite satisfied with this, especially since we find that those who have delayed ordering number many of the poorer brethren who can least afford the extra dollar. True, the original prices, $2.00 bound in "French Seal," and $3.00 in genuine morocco, silk sewed, proved to be too low;--less than cost when the postage is added. However, the loss will amount to but little more if all get the books at the same prices; so we have concluded to supply all at the same figures-- so long as the lot lasts;--and there will probably never be another edition embodying the same features.

Those who have sent the extra dollar on account of these Bibles will please notify us what else we shall apply it to; or if they prefer to have it returned in cash.

1902--PILGRIM VISITS--1902.

If you desire a Pilgrim visit, free, be sure to respond to the questions of page 2 of our January 15th issue.
