Any subscriber to the Methodist Magazine who will remit his own subscription for one year, accompanied by another subscription for one year (old or new), at full rates, receive post-paid a section of

Olive Wood from the Mount of Olives

Beautifully polished in Jerusalem, and shipped direct to us by way of Jaffa, the ancient Joppa Each section averages about three-quarters of an inch thick and three and three-quarters of an inch in diameter, belted by its own fragrant bark. It makes a beautiful paper-weight or parlor ornament. The name of the Sacred City-Jerusalem-is stamped on each section in English and Hebrew.

At this time, while the series of Illustrated Articles on the Holy Land are being published in the Magazine, what more interesting souvenir than this section of Olive Wood could be imagined ?

Some subscribers may not be able to secure another subscription to remit with theirs, and to such we offer this premium for ten cents, post-paid, this amount to be remitted with their subscription for a year. This price is less than cost even when we order by thousands. We would much rather dispose of the stock we have ordered in the manner first indicated, but we wish every subscriber to have an opportunity to secure for himself one of these unique premiums coming from the sacred Mount of Olives, where the Master taught His discipres the Loris Prayer, and at the foot of which lies the Garden of Gethsemane, blossoming now as it did in the days of Him whose life and death all Christendcm rejoice in.

Order early as the supply is limited and address orders
