SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, $1.00 A YEAR IN ADVANCE.

TERMS TO THE LORD’S POOR, AS FOLLOWS:
Those of the interested who, by reason of old age or accident, or other adversity, are unable to pay for the TOWER will be supplied FREE, if they send a Postal Card each December, stating their case and requesting the paper. We are not only willing, but anxious, that all such be on our list constantly.
THE TOWER PUBLISHING COMPANY NO LONGER EXISTS
On the first day of April, this Journal, with all and sundry its outfit and belongings, together with the entire stock on hand of DAWNS, booklets, tracts, Bibles, etc., and the Bible House, were formally transferred to the WATCH TOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY, which henceforth will do its own publishing, etc. Pray for the Society’s continued usefulness; and to this end heavenly guidance of its efforts to dispense the harvest truth.
THE TRUTH IN FOREIGN FIELDS
As we go to press, we are preparing shipments of books and tracts for England, Scotland, Germany and Switzerland, to the amount of 1972 books and 64,750 tracts, 300 of the new charts, envelopes, etc.
We mention this for the encouragement of some of the dear friends, who, finding their own efforts to serve the truth stoutly resisted, may feel discouraged and inclined to give over the battle for the truth. The foreign field is more difficult to work than our home field, and yet we see evidence of steady progress there, as illustrated in the above good sized shipment, which is by no means the largest yet made. Besides this, remember that the French DAWNS and tracts were published in Switzerland, and are kept in stock there.
“Pray ye—that He will send forth more laborers.” The general revival of business throughout this country makes it possible for colporteurs of even moderate ability to meet their expenses, upon the liberal terms allowed by our Society. (We cannot, however, encourage those who have families wholly dependent upon their labor to engage in this service.) We accordingly suggest to the dear friends of the truth that each do with his might what his hands may find to do, while it is called day, “for the night cometh, wherein no man can work.”
We still favor making a specialty of DAWN, VOL. I., but the Spiritism and Hell pamphlets, and DAWN, VOL. IV., are meeting with such success that we can encourage colporteurs to take them over fields recently worked with VOL. I. The results are good. Write us, if you feel an inclination, and have the opportunity, for entering this branch of service to any extent. “He that reapeth receiveth wages [reward] and gathereth fruit unto life eternal.”
