NEW BIBLES GOING OUT.

----------

We are glad to announce that the binders are making good progress with the new wide-margin etc. Bibles. The first thousand has gone out and others will follow at the rate of about 1000 per week. Wherever possible these go by express; and friends living in small places where express matter is not delivered, should call on express agent.

PATENT BINDERS FOR ZION'S WATCH TOWER.

----------

The price has been advanced on us, so that on orders recently filled we have been losing money. We must restore the price to 50 cents each, delivered. However, they are still very cheap, as one binder holds two years' issues of Z.W.T.

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

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.

LETTERS OF INTEREST.

----------

Dear Brother Russell:--

All that I can do is to thank you very sincerely for your kindness to me during the last three years in sending me copies of all the good things which you have been giving to the world.

Looking back over the past, I do not see how I could have gotten along without them.

For 45 years, including boyhood, I could find no "Bible Story" that satisfied me: whichever way I turned I found an incomplete gospel. I was so constituted that I could believe nothing that was not complete and rational,--fitted to my intellectual capacity.

I believed that God's words of guidance and admonition if for me would be that which I could understand. Many cardinal errors as preached and understood by many, called from me only indignant denials. I said, If it were for me I could understand it, and not be dodging around obstacles to my reason, in a vain effort to hold on and believe.

You can imagine my eager and glad surprise when the 1st Vol. of "Millennial Dawn" came into my hands. I could take it up and read it 10 minutes or an hour at a time with the greatest satisfaction. It was a never failing satisfaction, very unlike any other book I ever read. I had read the Bible a great deal--and as I followed you along,--so calmly and dispassionately --each deduction so built up by quotations from the Bible, most of them being "old friends" of mine, and as I saw that you built nothing except on the "solid rock" the Word of God, I said, At last! At last I do understand!

And so with great joy and comfort I am still following on--feasting on the truth day by day. I shall be 72 years old on the 14th day of January, 1902.

I am yours gratefully,

F. B. Browne,--California.

----------

Dear Brother Russell:--Thank you very much for your welcome letter of the 4th.

I had a good letter from a sister, who says of herself something very encouraging to me--that she read a little in the DAWNS for seven years before she became really interested. About a year or more ago, she and her husband left the Methodist Church in which both held prominent positions, and have been alone in the truth in their town since then, though she says others are partially interested.

How very true is the suggestion in our last Sunday's lesson about our life here being to our Lord's life on earth as 1 to 100! I can easily see myself 99-hundredths dead as compared with a perfect human being; and yet how Christ hath sweetened the scrap of life I possess, so that it is full of blessing despite its enveloping and pressing and constant limitations. Such a poor little scrap as to be quite despicable in the eyes of worldly health and healthy mental quickness and strength, yet how far I am from being willing to exchange with any one else! Once in a while I realize how my old friends stand aloof and former acquaintances have forgotten me, and feel like protesting with a bit of indignation, Why, I'm not dead! And then I recollect that I am dead, with Christ, and that hence am privileged to live with Christ, as I look up and give thanks to be in Him. And I often think of even Emerson's words "No man ever yet stated his griefs as lightly as he might;" so if he could say that, it is much more true of the little flock. Who can so easily afford to lose earthly friends as we who have tasted of the heavenly friendship! And besides, our loss is but temporary, maybe only in appearance now. The Lord is able and willing and glad to be our all, in all, and fills our needs better than everything else could do.

Your Sister in Christ,
Alice L. Darlington,--Pennsylvania.

----------

Dear Brother Russell: I have been reading the "Dawns" and "Towers" for over three years, and have never written to thank you; but I can assure you they have been appreciated, and have established us in the precious faith. I am a widow and advanced in years; have been a member of the Baptist Church for twenty-five years, but am now excluded, with fourteen others for advocating the "Millennial Dawn" doctrines. Dear brethren I am so glad that God has given me "ears to hear" the good tidings of great joy. I have been loaning my "Watch Towers" to all that had ears to hear that I could supply.

Yours truly,
Mrs. J. E. Cox,--Tennessee.

REDUCED WHOLESALE RATES ON

New and Old Silver Texts and Tablets.

Boldly Stamped in Silver on Light or Dark Ground, with Cord for Hanging.

These Silver Texts and Tablets are of choice designs and excellent
finish. As Decorations for the Home they are tasteful and very
praise-inspiring. They constantly remind us of the better
things and assist us in "overcoming the world and its spirit."

These texts are often hung in pairs, and as text thus answers
to text, the power of each to suggest helpful and
inspiring thoughts is markedly increased.

As single texts are more likely to receive damage in the mails than are quantities, we recommend that friends send their orders together, when practicable to do so. Besides the advantage already mentioned, postage expenses are decreased by this method.

Extra postage on single texts will be as stated in the list, but on orders amounting to 50c. the extra postage will be 10c.; on $1.00 lots the extra postage will be 10c.; on lots valued above $1.00 add extra postage at the rate of 16c. to the $1.00.

The 15c. texts are offered at 2 for 25c., Postage extra 8c.; the 8c. texts at 2 for 15c., Postage extra 5c.; the 3c. texts at 2 for 5c., Postage extra 2c. Order by number and letter; do not write out the text. Please name your second choice, peradventure your first be out of stock. All orders will be filled as accurately as possible.

As limited space does not permit us to describe all the beautiful mottoes that we have in stock, we propose to make up EXTRA VALUE PACKAGES, Postpaid for $1.16, which we feel sure will commend themselves to our friends, for they would contain more than you could include in a package of your own assortment at this price.

These texts occupy valuable space and are more or less a care, but the desirability of having such reminders of the grace of God in the homes seems to indicate that we should keep a stock on hand; and this we will do, not looking for profit in handling them, but seeking the spiritual welfare of the Lord's flock.

DAWNS AND TRACTS IN QUANTITIES.

----------

The Postoffice ruling interfering with what we claim are our legal rights in respect to mailing our paper-bound editions of the MILLENNIAL DAWN at newspaper rates, as for years past, has led some of the friends to join together, and by giving a united order for one hundred DAWNS to get them by freight. We commend this plan, and will supply them thus to WATCH TOWER subscribers for $10.00 per hundred, any assortment.

Remember, that our subscribers under our new arrangement can send to a friend, post-paid, any volume of DAWN in cloth binding, for 25c. No other similar books are supplied at such prices--nor, indeed, at any price; and the book in cloth cover will make a more favorable impression than in a paper cover. Tracts may be ordered in the same box if convenient;--free.

VOLUNTEER ARRANGEMENTS.

----------

By this time nearly all who have responded to our call are supplied with the new "ammunition;" use up first any old ammunition you may have on hand, but expect no more of it.

We find that some have not understood our object in sending out two kinds this time. It is not the thought to give each person the two papers, but the very reverse. As people usually leave churches in family groups, the distribution of one paper to each is apt to put two alike into many homes; our desire is that, if possible, they shall be different.

Our suggestion therefore is, that the captains see to it that each bundle (consisting of equal quantities of February 15 and March 15 WATCH TOWERS) is thoroughly reassorted so that the two papers can be handed out alternately. Let each "volunteer" see to this and assist also. We have plenty now; order all you can use judiciously.

Again we urge that in the distribution you do not go inside the churches, nor stand upon their steps;--if possible not even on the public pavement in their front. It is better rather, where possible, to stand 100 feet or more away from their exits.
