WHAT AN EARNEST BROTHER
CAN DO. BROTHER COLDWELL, of Woolwich, the Secretary of the Deptford Branch, having read our appeal of last year in the December number, determined to do something more than he had done in order to increase the circulation of the Magazine. We should say that he has always been a good worker, and if all the secretaries had done as he has done, the circulation would have been doubled. The number of his subscribers last year was fifteen. This year he took a quantity of our January number and left them at the houses of friends who, he thought, would be likely to take them in. The result has been that his fifteen subscribers have increased to twenty-six, and he has still a number of baits out, and he confidently expects, when he draws in his lines, to find that he has hooked several more. Now what he has done
zealous brother could do. And it is a wellknown fact that whenever a fresh subscriber is obtained for the Maga-zine, we gain an additional friend to the Association.
As an extra number of the January month has been printed, the publisher will be glad to furnish copies gratis to any brother who will follow the example of our Woolwich brother Coldwell. Apply to Philip Parker, 24, Bedford Street, Strand.
