the book committee of twenty-five min
isters and laymen, a board of active
directors, who direct this great church
interest without compensation. A fea

observed throughout Monday. The
Methodist Book Concern carries over
1,000,000 insurance of the lives of its
employes made out to beneficiaries,
named by the insured..
The Methodist Book concern was
founded August 17, 1789, at 43 Fourth
$600, by John Dickens, when Method
ism had but 58,000 members. For his
services Mr. Dickens was allowed an
nually $200 for dwelling house and
book-room, $80 for a boy, $53.33 Jbr
firewood, $333 to clothe and feed him
self, his wife and children the muni
ficent sum of $666.33 in all. In 1884
the business was moved to New York,
where it began business in one room
on Gold street. The first official Meth
odist Church paper, The Christian Ad
vocate, now in its ninty-first year, was
started in 1826. The Methodist Book
room in Cincinnati was started by
the Rev. Martin Reuter in a room 15x
20 feet, at Elm and Fifth streets. Not
even a boy was provided as helper
It is on such a foundation that the
great business of serving the constitu
ency of Methodism with weekly Ad
vocates, Sunday-school publications,
and Christian literature was establish
ed. At the present time the Methodist
Book concern has, in addition to its
main houses at New York and Cincin
nati, depositories at Chicago, Pitts
burg, San iFrancisco, Kansas City, Mo.,
Detroit and Boston, the real estate
value of which is nearly $2,000,000. And
its profits, distributed to the aged and
retired ministers of the church, for the
past four years, were over $1,000,000.
Methodism through its Book concern
has furnished a literature of substan
tial value, symmerical and well balan
ced, a literature for the people. It has
thus rendered great service to com
pleteness of church organization and
work, has aided in giving uniformity
to the tone spirit, policy, and teach
ing of the church, has made possible
the great modern advance in the newer
methods and material of modern Sunday-school
