MOUNTAIN LAKE PARK CONVENTION
September first to eleventh on the mountain top will surely be quite cool; and as Mountain Lake Park is a “Camp Meeting” village the houses are not so tight as your homes. For these reasons plenty of warm clothing will be needed, especially for evenings. Remember this!
The various other Conventions this year will probably leave us a smaller crowd here than the General Convention last year at Celoron. But neither are the possibilities for lodging so good. All, therefore, desiring board and lodging should apply at once at $1, or at hotels at $1.25, $1.50, $1.75, $2 up. None should count on less than $1.25 daily expense. We have contracted for all the board and lodging available and desirable. Large rooms must accommodate three or four persons, small ones at least two, even to accommodate the smaller crowd we are expecting. We are even arranging for cots in temporary shelters. Surely, then, when you decide to come, send us one dollar, each person, which we will pay over to secure your space. It will apply on your board bill.
Give full particulars re your party—which prefer to room together, when you will arrive and when depart, etc. We will gladly do our best for all.
Particulars re railroad rates on another page.
COLPORTEURS AT THE CONVENTION
A “Brother” has remembered the Colporteurs and proffers, under the following restrictions, one-half the railway fare to such as need the aid to get to the Mt. Lake Park Convention: (1) The half–fare shall not exceed five dollars. (2) The Colporteur shall have paid the Society at least twenty-five dollars for SCRIPTURE STUDIES during this year.
The Society has arranged for the free entertainment of said Colporteurs on a very economical basis. It will supply cots in two large buildings and will supply food which these dear friends can prepare for their own use, as many of them are accustomed to doing.
Our Society regards the Colporteur service as one of the most important branches of the “harvest” work—if not, indeed, the most important. We trust that the above arrangement may assist a considerable number of Colporteurs to attend. It is our hope that the day devoted to Colporteur Instruction may start some on better methods and to greater success than in the past. We will do all in our power to further the usefulness of all desiring to co-operate in this branch of the service.

MIRACLE WHEAT IN DEMAND
The notice in THE WATCH TOWER of June 15 that Brother Bohnet has “miracle wheat” in abundance now, and that he will sell it at $1 per pound and donate the entire proceeds to our Tract Fund, has brought in many orders. These will be filled between August 15 and September 1. No limit as to supply has been noted. Sent by Express, prepaid, the price will be twenty-two pounds for $20; fifty-five pounds for $50; larger quantities at the latter rate. The merits of this wheat over the common variety have been mentioned in previous issues of THE WATCH TOWER.
