CLASS DEPOTS FOR BIBLE STUDENTS
Some of the larger classes have found it very convenient to appoint one of their number as Literature stock Keeper. He is supplied from the local Treasury a sufficiency of money for such a stock of books as the class will probably use during a month or more. This he keeps under his charge, and supplies to anyone desiring literature at the same rate as though he himself ordered from Brooklyn or London. He also is usually given charge of the Volunteer matter, and special free literature, dealing with interesting subjects. From him, at meeting times, the class can supply themselves with literature, and thus often use much more than if they had been obliged to order from headquarters.
We recommend the plan as having some good features, and worthy of consideration by all classes.
We advise the selection of a brother or sister for this service who has some acquaintance with business, and, if possible, one who has access to a typewriter.
Keep a fair supply on hand. Order in good time, for express charges are much higher than freight rates—we should be economical in the use of the Lord’s money. Supplies for “Pilgrim Meetings” should be ordered at least four to six weeks in advance, according to distance.
PHOTO-DRAMA OF CREATION
Unexpected difficulties have from time to time arisen hindering the presentation of the drama. Perhaps the Lord’s time for it has not yet come. The present outlook for it is not favorable for public work before the first of the coming year.
We have on file the applications of those who desire to serve in this Department of the Harvest work. More applicants have already sent in their names than we shall probably be able to use for some time. Should more help be desired, mention of the same will be made in these columns.

MORE ABOUT THE GREAT PYRAMID
Brother Morton Edgar has recently issued a very neat little book dealing with the Pyramid, and corresponding in size and shape to the Karatol and India paper STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES. It is on India paper, cloth-bound, two shillings (fifty cents.) We are informed that it treats the passages of the Pyramid very critically and finds that many of the measurements are closely corroborative of the time features of the Divine Plan presented in the STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES. We are advised that it gives seven different corroborative proofs that the close of the year 1914—namely, about October, 1914—will mark the closing of the Times of the Gentiles, and the beginning of the Messianic Reign. Many of the dear friends are rejoicing in these corroborations.
Any desiring to procure these books can send their orders to our office, or directly to Morton Edgar, 224 W. Regent street, Glasgow, Scotland.
We wish still, however, to reiterate what we have said from the first respecting the date of the close of the Times of the Gentiles; namely, that the calculations as we presented them in Vol. II, STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES, are the Truth to the best of our knowledge and belief. Nevertheless, there is enough uncertainty about the matter of chronology to make it a matter of faith rather than of positive knowledge. We remind our readers that our consecration to the Lord is not to October, 1914, nor to any other time except that mentioned by the Savior—”Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”—Rev. 2:10.
