The Editor recognizes a responsibility to the Master, relative to what shall appear in these columns, which he cannot and does not cast aside; yet he should not be understood as endorsing every expression of correspondents, or of articles selected from other periodicals.

This paper will be sent free to any of the Lord's poor who will send a card yearly requesting it. Freely we have received and freely we would give the truth. "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters; and he that hath no money, come ye, buy and eat-- yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price." And you that have it--"Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently--and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness."--ISAIAH 55:1,2.
WRITE plainly; give full address each time. In giving a new address say also where from.
IF ANY who desire the TOWER do not receive it regularly, it is probably the fault of their Post-Master, or their own fault. We gave repeated notice that all who want the TOWER and were unable to pay up arrearages, or to renew their subscription, could have it the same as ever, by sending a card stating the facts and requesting its continuance. Others were dropped as we had warned them and are themselves alone to blame. We shall be glad however to learn from time to time of those who hunger and thirst after truth, and shall be glad to re-enter them on our lists.
====================r950 THE HARVEST FIELD
DEAR SIR:--Having a desire to do more in the Master's service, I write to inform you how I am situated, and ask your advice as to how I could serve best. I am a woman, and obtain a livelihood as a servant at the __________ Hotel. I wait on table and make beds, and what spare time I have I use to introduce your paper and book in this town. I conclude that there is not much wheat here to gather, but every kernel must be tested; therefore I write to you for advice as to the best course to pursue. I am free, I have nothing to hold me at one place and think I could do more for the Master to take some work that would require traveling from town to town. I will soon get over this town.
On the evening of April 7th. last I commemorated the Lord's death alone with great joy and peace. This is the second time I have commemorated, this time as a blessed privilege and understandingly, while at the first partaking I thought it a duty and did not understand its import. That was in 1870 while a member of the Christian Church. Yours in fellowship and service, M. D. V__________.
[Since the above was written, the sister has seen the plan of work suggested in May TOWER and gone heartily into the work taking orders for DAWN. As a result her first order was for fifty copies, and we doubt not, she will soon average one hundred copies per week.--EDITOR.]
