Neese, Marietta, Ga., "I am, I suspect, one of you oldest subscribers, am 81 years old and have taken your wonderful paper and almanac ever since you began publishing them. I have always liked them more than l can express and feel lost if I miss a single copy. I trust that our kind heavenly Father will spare you to us many more years to do the work you love, and which has been such a blessing to humanity. Many happy returns of your birthday."-- A. Samuels, Harlan, Iowa. "I notice that you and I are of one age, I was 64 in July, therefore only a few months older than you. I have been travel. ing with you for quite a number of years, and highly appreciate your work. WORD AND WORKS is a welcome guest once a month in our home."------S. A. Kinkead, Anderson, Ind., "I have all your almanacs since 1895 except one or two and have derived much satisfaction from perusing your work. I have found predictions to be very near the mark, very nearly correct, and hope that you may be permitted to continue the work for many years yet to the edification of many thousands who appreciate your work."-- Geo. W. Mowrey, Lawrence, Ind., "I congratulate you on the good work you have so successfully carried on for a number of years. I have been taking WORD A;,TD "TTOKKS twenty years or more and every year it grows better, not only the weather predictions but the other reading matter is interesting and profitable to all who are seeking a higher life. Wish you many more useful years of life."------M. M. FitzWilliam, Evansville, Ind., "I have been getting your almanac eight years, and am more and more impressed with the accuracy of forecasts made one year ahead, as compared with our so-called "Weather Bureau" 24 hours ahead. I hope that God will spare your life many years." E. T. Conser, Imperial, Cal., "I hope and pray that God may continue to bless you and keep you alive for many years to come. I have read after you for 26 years and would like to do so for 26 more, since I find this old world a fairly good one to live in, even if we do have a wayward "F------" in it." Thos. Bustard, Corunna, Mich., "I congratulate you on your attaining your 64th birthday, and hope that through God's mercy you will live to see many more birthdays. Please do not fail to send me your Almanac and WORD AND WORKS, for they are ever welcome friends, and it would be lonesome without them in the house. Hoping that God will prosper you even more in the future than he has in the past, I am yours sincerely."— Mrs. L. A. Nelson, Luther, Mich., 'Tour generous birthday offer at hand—it is a wonderful thing for you to do, for every subscriber gets value received for every dollar he puts into your publications. I ought to know for I have taken WORD AND WORKS ever since it was first published. I have every issue of the paper and every Almanac, and I would not sell them for all I paid for them, besides the nice presents I have received for get¬ting up clubs. One of the best times of my life was when I heard you lecture at Cadillac last September and shook hands with you. My prayer is that God will bless and keep you at the good work you have begun." -- published. I have every issue of the paper and every Almanac, and I would not sell them for all I paid for them, besides the nice presents I have received for get¬ting up clubs. One of the best times of my life was when I heard you lecture at Cadillac last September and shook hands with you. My prayer is that God will bless and keep you at the good work you have begun."—A. and M. Cunningham, Monarch, Mont., “Our daily prayer is that the Lord may spare you and prosper you in the publication of the good work for benefit of humanity, for surely your publications have been a great blessing to the people who have been sailing with you on this old earth ship as we have for 20 or 21 years, and we don’t feel as if we could do without your valuable journal and almanac. May your remaining days be the brightest and happiest of your life, and may you be spared to many years more of usefulness. If we never meet on the earth ship, we will meet on the other shore in that beautiful city where the streets are pure gold, and sorrows and trials will be over. We are your brother and sister in Jesus.”-- Charles S. Childs, Cam¬bridge, Mass., "The summer has gone to be numbered with the past 71 years of my life, and words cannot ex¬press the comfort and pleasure I have taken with my three truthful instruments and your Almanac in fore¬telling the weather, all to the credit of Prof. Hicks. Sixty-four in December! Well, you are now in the prime of life, and my best wish is that you may live to be one hundred and sixty-four. Then the world will say, 'How can we run the weather without Hicks?' My prayer is that you continue on in your good work until the Master calls you to that home beyond, where the weather never changes, and Hicks' barometer always reads '30.' " Robert Brebner, Russell, Kans., "I congratulate you on your 64th birthday, and hope you will have many more years to carry on your good work. I have been a subscriber to your WORD AND WORKS for about twenty years, have all WORD AND WORKS and Almanacs. I have learned more from them than from my books. I am over 73 years old, but I take great interest in your work, and hope you will long be spared to carry out your work. Wishing you and your family may long be spared to enjoy each other I am, yours truly."-- A. Sluth, Butler, Mo., "Dear friend, I will call you friend, for such I take you to be, a friend to all humanity. You are doing a great work, you hit the weather almost pat this summer. We enjoy your Magazine and wish it came every week instead of every month. Wish you many years of success and happy days."-- P. P. Wil¬liamson, Graham, Texas, "I use your Almanac and weather forecasts with decided advantage all the time, and by study of your foundation facts and observations of my own for about 30 years, I anticipate the coming changes in the weather quite satisfactorily, especially in general. Hope you will continue in your great useful ness." Robert H. Albert, West Hanover. Pa., "For your 64th birthday, I send the best of my regards and may you have many more happy, prosperous birthdays "-- J. C. Billups, Cascade, Montana, "I must congratu- late you on your 64th birthday; I must also congratulate you on your noble work, as it gives us timely warning if we are not too busy to read it. May you live to see many more happy birthdays."-- Donald F. Cameron, Fredrickton, N. B. Canada, "Having had your Almanac for 1908, and having found it very useful, I am enclosing an order for $1. for your Magazine WORD AND WORKS, and your Almanac for 1909. I find that your weather reports hit the nail on the head in nearly every case, and that seismic shakes are reported in practically all the periods pointed out in your book.”-- Mrs. E. R. Hall, Bedford, Iowa, "During the lifetime of my brother, Dr. A. M. Golliday, I had the privilege of reading WORD AND WORKS. I wish to continue it, not only because I like it myself, but because it was his choice for good reading."-- Mrs. May T. Beebee, Box 86, Parkersburg, Ill., ''Some friend sent us your excel¬lent paper last year, and we have enjoyed it so much we wish to continue it and also to extend the courtesy to someone else. Your predictions regarding seismic dis¬turbances are astonishingly accurate and are very help¬ful to me, as my anatomy persists in recording all such vibrations with symptoms akin to intense sea-sickness, which I am able to overcome somewhat by knowing when the disturbance is coming, and fasting for several days in advance. You are certainly a public bene¬factor !" Gust K. Peterson, Hibbing, Minn., "I hereby foward money order for which please send me ten copies of your Almanac, also your picture, which will be the greatest gift of all. God bless you in your understandings, and may the good Lord spare you for a good many more useful years. I will later on send you congratulation on your 64th birthday. Accept many thanks from a true friend."--Frederick F. Adams, Manchester, N. H., "Your Almanac has been an in¬teresting part of my daily readings for the past year, and, as I know of no other similar, I think that every home should have one. Also all who are interested in the stellar heavens. I congratulate you on the attain¬ment of your sixty-fourth birthday."--Mrs. Sarah L. Flanders, Warner, N. H., "Having had your Almanac and Magazine for 1908 I wish to say that I am much in¬terested in both, and would like them for the year 1909 Last summer I got up several times to see Venus coming up from the ocean, a fine sight I should not have seen except for your Almanac. My eyes have been in use for seventy-five years." Thousands like the above from every quarter of the continent.
