Watch Tower




101 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa.


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 paper money to the amount of two dollars, by mail, at our risk. Larger amounts may be sent by Drafts, 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


ADDRESSES should be very carefully written. When an address is changed, the former as well as the last address, should be mentioned.


TAKE NOTICE: Those of our subscribers from whom we have not heard for over a year, will find a blue mark on their paper (thus [check mark]). Many of these will receive no more until we do hear from them, that they desire the visits of the TOWER continued. Those on the Lord’s poor list, of which there are about two thousand, must also apply. There are few so poor that they cannot send a Postal Card. Those who do not value it enough to ask for it yearly would probably waste or destroy it—hence our particularity. We have no desire to keep a single saint from the Lord’s table—the heavenly food—therefore let not the “Lord’s poor” fear to ask—”ask and ye shall receive.” See terms above. Any failure to receive your papers ordered, should be promptly reported.
