THE CHICAGO CONVENTION—AUG. 25-27
We learn with regret that some of the rail roads entering Chicago have instructed their near-by agents not to commence selling the cheap “G.A.R. Excursion” tickets until Aug. 26. This will undoubtedly prevent some from attending the Convention on its opening day, the 25th; but should it be the desire of a goodly number, the Convention can be prolonged to include the 28. The dates already announced will be the best we can do (Aug. 25-27), for we want to include a Sunday, and prefer that, so far as possible, the commotion incidental to arrivals on the opening day shall be over before Sunday.
Full particulars were given in last WATCH TOWER, and will be sent by mail on application. The Editor of this journal will attend, and hopes that all friends will introduce themselves to him, by name and place.
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. CONVENTION—SEPT. 4 AND 5
Friends of the truth residing in the vicinity of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., advise us that a Floral Fete will be held there Sept. 3-6, which will have very low rates of rail road fare from all points in New York and New England. They request a gathering of the friends of that vicinity,—and as many others as can conveniently meet with them on Sept. 4 and 5. The Editor has promised to attend on the 4th, and if possible to remain also the 5th. Purchase Excursion tickets to Floral Fete.
Comfortable accommodations can be secured at one dollar a day including board. Notify the WATCH TOWER office at once by postal card, when you will arrive, by what road, and how many will be of your party. On arrival go at once to the New Prohibition Hall, No. 464-1/2 Broadway.—But first look out for the Reception Committee at the door of the “Ladies’ Waiting Room” displaying a copy of the WATCH TOWER.
DALLAS, TEXAS, CONVENTION—SEPT. 29,30, OCT. 1
We merely remind the friends of Texas and vicinity of the date as above, reserving particulars for a later issue.
“HE THAT HATH NO MONEY—COME YE!”
At all Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society Conventions provision is made for the free entertainment of the Lord’s “brethren” able to attend, but unable to pay for hotel accommodations. In notifying us of your coming, mention if the Lord’s providence has made it expedient for you to accept the free hospitality of the entertaining Church.
CONVENTION OPPORTUNITIES FOR SYMBOLIC BAPTISM
This is a feature in all conventions. Robes, towels, etc., are supplied, and the use of baptistry secured.
