OLD THEOLOGY TRACTS
It has been decided that hereafter only one tract subscription shall be included in a TOWER subscription, but that all who are thus subscribers to ZION’S WATCH TOWER and The Old Theology Quarterly may order as many tracts free as they can use judiciously—except those in booklet form, leatherette bound, viz., Nos. 8, 11 and 16.
So, then, order all that you can use judiciously of the following:—
No. 1. Do the Scriptures Teach that Eternal Torment is the Wages of Sin?
No. 2. Calamities—Why God Permits Them.
No. 3. Protestants, Awake! How Priestcraft now Operates.
No. 4. Dr. Talmage’s View of the Millennium—with comments.
No. 5. Bible Study and Students’ Helps.
No. 6. The Hope of the Groaning Creation.
No. 7. The Wonderful Story.

OUR THREE BOOKLETS
„THE WONDERFUL STORY.”—Poem, 156 verses.—The Gospel in verse.—Fifteen outline illustrations.—Leatherette binding.—Choice for children; interesting also to the matured.
„TABERNACLE SHADOWS OF THE BETTER SACRIFICES”
—104 pages.—Leatherette binding.—Just the thing for matured Christians—”Meat in due season.” „THY Word IS TRUTH.”—An answer to Robert Ingersoll’s Charges against Christianity.—Just the thing for Infidels and for skeptically inclined Christians.
These booklets sell at the hands of Colporteurs, the three for fifty cents, delivered. We supply them to TOWER readers at ten cents each; and to them or other Colporteurs at seventy-five cents per dozen—post-paid. To obtain the Colporteur rates, order not less than a half-dozen of any one kind of the booklets. We have them put up in packs of six and twelve—each kind separately.
THE WATCH TOWER FOR 1893
So far as possible we prefer to have subscriptions date from January each year; but where this is not convenient we are pleased to have it otherwise. Those who cannot pay now, but who expect to do so later, and who desire that their papers continue uninterruptedly, will please drop a card saying so. Each can see just how his account stands by examining the date on the address label of his last paper. These we will correct every month hereafter.
Those who from age, accident or other misfortune are unable to afford to subscribe are still welcome to receive the WATCH TOWER free as „The Lord’s Poor,” if they describe themselves and make the request yearly. (Such are marked with a sign—thus: +—on the address label.) This offer is not meant for those whose inability to pay arises from the spending of a larger sum for tobacco, etc.; but all who are really of the class described are as welcome to the TOWER regularly as though they paid for it.
But it is not too much to ask such to renew their request each year on a postal card. If you have once described your case and are marked (thus: +) on your label you need not explain again; for we understand that your circumstances are still the same. Such may simply say, „Please renew my subscription as heretofore,” and we shall understand them. But others not so marked (+) should explain, for we have not understood them heretofore.
Again, let us request that all the „Lord’s Poor” renewals come in promptly before January ’93. Those who asked the TOWER free during other months get it only until December ’92 unless they now, in December, ask its renewal. „Ask and ye shall receive” is God’s method—which we adopt.
— December 15, 1892 —
