HERALD OF CHRIST’S PRESENCE
C. T. RUSSELL, Editor and Publisher.
NO. 44 FEDERAL ST. ALLEGHENY, PA.
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 OF SUBSCRIPTION
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.”—
WE have no more of the Variorum Testaments.
THE only SAFE way to send money is by P.O. MONEY ORDERS, REGISTERED LETTERS, or BANK DRAFTS. Please remember this.
WE have many questions from correspondents which may be found answered in back numbers of Z.W.T. “Food” and “Tabernacle Teachings,” which we do not therefore answer again in Z.W.T. Please consult these before sending questions, that the questions may be of fresh and general interest to all the readers.
ADVICE TO LETTER WRITERS:—(1)
Write plainly. (2) Give date, name and address in full. (3) Make each letter complete in itself, as we cannot always recall particulars of former letters. (4) Write orders on separate slip from the letter. (5) When desiring your address changed, give the old as well as the new address.
Compliance with the above suggestions will greatly facilitate our office work and save much valuable time. Quite frequently parties forget to sign their names, and addresses must be guessed at from a blurred post mark, which sometimes cannot be done.
If time would permit, we would gladly give more attention to private correspondence with the many whose welcome letters daily reach our office. We do all we can in this direction, and wherein we may appear to be delinquent, we trust the charity of our correspondents will be duly exercised.
