PROFITABLE DAILY TITHING.
"Daily Heavenly Manna."
This little book is having the largest
circulation of any of Its kind and is
conceded by Christians everywhere to
be the most helpful.
If Christians allow the rush and
crush of selfish ambition to deprive
them of their daily portion of heaven
ly food, they arasfnot be surprised if
they grow spiritually leaner day by
day, and If the peace of God gives
place In their hearts to the discontent
which is growing in the world, not
withstanding the multiplication of our
comforts and privileges.
Daily Heavenly Manna contains a col
lection of Scripture texts with appro
priate quotations for. every day In the
year. Surely the little tithe of time
daily spent in partaking of Its morsels
of heavenly counsel cannot fall to
profit all who partake." It is published
to do good not for profit.
Your Friends Birth Dates. ,
An autograph and birthday record
feature In this book Is a great conveni
ence, Opposite each day of the year
are blank lines upon which you can

valuable yearly. In ten years yon

Besides it has a place for Birth Rec
