WATCH TOWER BINDERS, POST-PAID 40 CTS
These hold two years’ issues, keep them clean, orderly and ready for reference. This is wholesale-cost price; for your benefit.
We have these in good supply now; and the last lot is larger in size and of heavier paper than previous lots. Prices 25c per 100, $2 per 1,000, post or express, prepaid.
The announcement of Motto Cards, etc., in our Dec’r 1st issue opposite page 377 still holds good: A $2 lot for $1 plus 16c postage. We still have a good supply, and they are surely both beautiful and cheap and desirable. But we have in mind some of our readers who may not be able to invest even this modest sum in home-embellishments. What can we do for these?
We can and will put up for these dear friends a cheaper packet, which will serve them well, and help to brighten their homes and to remind them also of the precious promises of our Father’s Word.
These will be 50 cents per packet, including postage.
We will put up also a 25c post-paid packet—for those who cannot invest more.

WE EXTEND to our list of subscribers, and to all friends of our cause (all of whom we hope to have on our lists soon, as per suggestions in our December 15th issue), most hearty greetings, wishing you all A Very Happy and Spiritually Prosperous New Year—1902.
We trust that you were all greatly pleased with our report for last year. Its showing of a previous deficiency wiped out, and a snug sum on hand wherewith to begin this year’s operations, are good cause for joy, and for thankfulness to God.
The outlook for the present year, you will be glad to learn, seems to us very encouraging. We are expecting much, and believe the Lord’s providences and his Word justify these expectations. We hope to prepare, shortly, an article dealing further with the Call of this Gospel Age: showing some of our reasons for surmising that the next four years should quite double the present numbers of the interested, and the present operations in the service of the “harvest” message. It will appear as soon as possible, and we believe will be convincing to all. We mention the matter now, in advance, because we think that some are slackening their efforts, through a mistaken supposition that little more is to be done. We hope to convince and revive them; that they may renew their efforts in the service, and thus increase their joy and their usefulness.
We know not what is before us in the year, dear brethren,—nor do we need to know. If we have committed our all, for time and eternity, to the Lord’s care, let us assure our hearts, afresh, of divine wisdom and power as well as love. Resting confidently in the everlasting arms, we may take whatever his providence may permit; not only willingly, but joyfully. If the year shall bring us blessings, prosperity and encouragement in spiritual matters, we can while rejoicing lay by a store of grace; for stormy times of trial later on. If the year brings us sorrows, physical or mental anguish, let us receive them with resignation: saying, with the Master, “The cup which my Father hath poured for me, shall I not drink it?”
If, dear brethren, life’s experiences are accepted with faith, in the manner indicated, we may rest assured that this will be not only a happy but a blessed year for us. It is with each to determine this for himself under the Lord’s grace. Faithful is he who hath called us;—let us be faithful.
