SELF-PRONOUNCING

S.S. TEACHERS' REFERENCE BIBLE

The Self-Pronouncing Text Enables The Reader To Pronounce All Proper Names At a Glance.

The Bible is printed from Large, Beautiful and Clear New Type. All Proper Names are Divided into Syllables and Every Vowel is Marked and the Syllables Inflected, showing the Sounds and Accents as they are given in a Dictionary, thus enabling the reader to properly pronounce every word. This feature is a great improvement and a strong recommendation for this Bible over others.

ALL OF THE CELEBRATED OXFORD TEACHERS' HELPS
TOGETHER WITH
A Complete Series of New Maps
ILLUSTRATING THE GEOGRAPHY OF PALESTINE AND THE
SURROUNDING COUNTRIES FROM THE EARLIEST
TIMES, AND EMBODYING THE MOST

Renders the Bible Especially Desirable to Teachers and
Students of the Holy Scriptures.

Never were Bibles so cheap as now, and never better supplied with "helps," such as Concordance, maps, etc., causing such to be styled "Teachers' Bibles." This is little difference between these as respects the "helps."

ABOUT TEACHERS' BIBLES.

----------

Some inquire, Are the 97 cent Bibles mentioned in the TOWER first class books? We answer, No! They are not strictly first class, but they are elegant, nevertheless.

A brother who ordered one of them wrote us on receiving it that we had made some mistake; for surely no such Bible as the one received could be made for the price, 97 cents plus 25 cents postage. We answered him that there was no mistake, and thereupon he took his as a sample and among his neighbors got orders for fifty-five copies --selling them as a special bargain at $1.60 each.

Those who want a very superior leather binding, and India paper, can be supplied at $3.00 a Bible whose list price is $7.50, and for $4.50 a Bible whose list price is $10.00, having a still finer leather.

However, the Bibles mentioned in our last at 97 cents and $1.10 and $1.48 are good enough for almost anyone. 30 cents extra for Patent Index, 25 cents postage.
