TERMS TO THE LORD'S POOR, AS FOLLOWS:--

Those of the interested who, by reason of old age, or other infirmity or adversity, are unable to pay for the TOWER will be supplied FREE, if they send a Postal Card each December, stating their case and requesting the paper. We are not only willing, but anxious, that all such be on our list continually.

==========

MEMORIAL CELEBRATION REPORTS.

WE trust that our dear Redeemer's death will be very generally celebrated by WATCH TOWER readers on the evening of April 12, and make special request for Postal Card reports from each little group--even the twos and threes who meet in His name. Please appoint one of your number to attend to this matter. Write as plainly as possible, state the number who participated and the measure of blessing enjoyed. Do not expect replies to these cards.

POEMS AND HYMNS OF DAWN.

Our supply is temporarily exhausted, and it will be about a month before we can fill orders received now.

DAWN IV. IN GERMAN.

Our printers and binders have been so busy of late that the German translation of DAWN IV. "The Day of Vengeance" has been delayed far beyond our expectation. We ask the dear German friends who have waited for it so patiently to wait just a little longer. We are assured that we can commence filling orders by May 1.

FREE TOWER SUBSCRIPTIONS.

We were some time ago obliged to make it an office rule that no one could be entered as a free subscriber except upon his own request as stated in "Terms" above, except in the cases of those disabled, when the friend requesting it for them should state this fact and that they were requested to write.

We are anxious that all interested poor should have the TOWER free, but experience proves the above rule to be a wise one. Let each feel that he receives the gift from the Lord as a part of God's provision for his own.

ADDRESS TAGS NOT CHANGED.

We are changing our method of addressing the TOWERS and the tags are no longer to be relied on. Henceforth we will acknowledge every remittance by postal card. It will be additional trouble and expense, but we trust will have other compensating advantages.
