Watch Tower






C. T. RUSSELL, Editor and Publisher.




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.



TERMS:—Fifty cents a year, postage prepaid. You may send by Draft, P.O. Money Order, or Registered Letter, payable to C. T. RUSSELL.



Foreign Postage being higher, our terms to foreign subscribers will be 65 cents a year. Please send us no foreign money or postage stamps, as we can make no use of them. Remittances may be made by Foreign Postal Money Orders.



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


WE have removed our business office to No. 44 FEDERAL ST., ALLEGHENY CITY, PA.


SOME one in P.O. employ has discovered that we often get letters containing money, and has been robbing us lately. The only SAFE way, therefore, will be for you to send by P.O. MONEY ORDERS, or REGISTERED LETTERS, or BANK DRAFTS. Please remember this.



Some time ago we published some charts suitable for hanging on the wall—about twenty-five inches long on rollers—otherwise a copy of the CHART OF THE AGES, found in FOOD FOR THINKING CHRISTIANS, page 105.

We know of no better method of studying the Plan of God, or explaining it to others, than by means of this chart. We have a few copies still on hand, and will furnish them free to any who are willing to pay Express charges on them.


THIS MONTH we shall revise our lists, and shall strike off quite a number of names—of such as we have not heard from for the past eighteen months.

This will include many of the LORD’S POOR LIST. We desire that the TOWER shall not go to those who are not interested in it, and feel sure that none are so poor that they cannot afford a postal card on which to accept of our proposal to put them on the Poor List for another year. Should we by mistake fail to send next month to any who have paid, or who have asked it free, please notify us promptly. Those ordering on FREE LIST will please state that they are the Lord’s children and unable to pay. We do not wish to send it FREE to those who can but do not wish to pay.

WE work together, if far apart,
Hands in unison, heart to heart.
We work as having one common aim:
We work as bearing the same good name;
We dare not loiter, but still pursue
The work of the Master, with him in view.
