NIAGARA FALLS CONVENTION
This is a most beautiful place in which to hold a Convention of Bible students. The surroundings are ideal, and the friends remember with appreciation the last Convention held there. Perhaps no time of the year other than August 19 to 22 would be better for this Convention. Brother Russell expects to be there on Sunday and Monday, August 20th and 21st, the very midst of the Convention. This location is specially convenient for the Canadian friends, and we are hoping that a good many of them may be in attendance. Friends from the States will appreciate this privilege of meeting with their Canadian brethren. We are hoping for a good attendance. The Program seems to be one of the best, and the speakers are able brethren.
$5.00 excursions are announced from Pittsburgh—and possibly from other points—for the 19th.
RAILROAD RATES TO NASHVILLE CONVENTION
Thirty-five railroads in the South, composing the Southern Passenger Association with headquarters at Atlanta, Ga., Joseph Richardson, Chairman, have issued Joint Passenger Tariff, No. Exc. 6747, publishing reduced rate arrangement on account of the I.B.S.A. Convention to be held in Nashville, August 24-27. The rate is a very attractive one, about one-half the usual fare. No doubt this will enable many to attend who would not feel able to go if a higher rate were in force.
The Capitol building will be used for the sessions of the Convention, and the great Ryman Auditorium will be used for the DRAMA. Pastor Russell will give a public lecture in one of the largest theaters. The Program, we believe, is an excellent one; and the speakers are able.
When purchasing ticket, ask for Excursion rate to Nashville, Tenn., and return, according to Joint Passenger Tariff Exc. 6747, in effect August 22d, 23d, 24th. In case your town is not on this tariff, your ticket agent will be able to figure your fare from your place to the nearest point covered by the tariff, from which latter place, you will have the benefit of the one and one-half cent excursion rate.
GREEK BRETHREN AS BIBLE STUDENTS
Learning of considerable interest among the Greeks, the Editor invited them to meet him at the Bethel Home, July 27th. Twenty-two came (19 brothers, 3 sisters). We had a most enjoyable season of fellowship—conferring respecting our Father’s Plan and the meaning of His Word. Three symbolized their consecration to be dead with Christ.
For some time they have been publishing THE WATCH TOWER in Greek at a cost of over 35 cents per copy, or $9.00 per year each, for their 80 subscribers. Now their funds are exhausted. We advised that under the circumstances they should discontinue the publication. They demurred that they needed the Heavenly food or would starve. Finally one of their number guaranteed the publication for one year upon assurance that they would each set apart 2c daily for this spiritual food. They do their own translating and print on a small press of their own. The meeting and the results gave us a clearer insight into their loving loyalty to the Lord and to His Truth. We pass on this Cup of refreshing to our readers.
The progress of the Truth amongst Italians, Slovaks, Greeks, etc., during the last two years has surprised and cheered us greatly. The PHOTO-DRAMA OF CREATION, apparently, had much to do with this interest. The EUREKA DRAMA can now be supplied with lecture records in many languages.
