All the balance had been provided for but $300, and Elder Hydeu, although the. weather was disagreeable and the roads bad and many absent from whom they expected contributions, pushed the work through and raised $32 mora than the amount required. A few friends from a distance helped them out. Mr. Jeremiah Miller of New York state, who had friends in the vicinity, had 6cnt $50 and Mr. Isaac Stifllcr, a former citizen, but now a resident of Carthage, Mo., also gave f50. Mr. Stiffler, who was present, said he would give the last $50 of the $300, and seemed fearful for a whilo that he would not get to pay it. The amount raised on Sunday and the amounts formerly raised by subscriptions ag gregated $500 which, allowing for any shrinkage that may occur, will more thau pay up all remaining indebted ness. Rev. F. II. Flickinger has done a grand work not only In the building of the church edifice, but in building up the spiritual interests of that cohi muuitv.
