“In consequence of numerous requests beings constantly received for advice and assistance in procuring magic lanterns and slides, the Committee have arranged to devote special attention to this useful branch of work. Their long and extensive experience in the delivery of Dissolving View Lectures places them in a specially favourable position for the selection os suitable apparatus, and they have been able to make such satisfactory arrangements with the manufacturers as to quote much lower prices than those usually announced. Being confident that so-called 'cheap' apparatus of this description is a source of continual annoyance, loss, and regret, none but thoroughly reliable goods will be supplied, and Societies may rest assured that their requirements will receive the greatest attention and meet with complete satisfaction should they avail themselves of this opportunity of obtaining really first-class apparatus at the lowest possible prices. Full particulars will be supplied on application to Mr. Frederic Smith, United Kingdom Band Of Hope Union, 4, Ludgate Hill, E.C.”
