Over (1000) one thourand aouls rejoloint; in their salvation and he havinp been used as an instrument ln Ooo s hands for their salvation. Doea the public know that thla Dr. Phllllps is a man of very humble clr cumstances In this world'a goorta* Do the people know that Dr. Phll? llps is pastor of one little chureh at Brtaver Dam. for which he has pre*>ch ed for many long years at a verv small salary? And do the peopl a know that when a man beoomes an Evangelist tha' he is generally looked upon as being auitei for that work only? He therefore becomes evcry body's proaeher. Dr. Phllllps. aa I have aald. la a man of humble meane and It s*?ems to me that Richmond and the frlen *a ahrnad could r>ot do a more arracefni aet than to ralse a hsndaome purse of money for thla 0?V-sent man, so that In case health breaka down. fea would not suffer or be turned out of doors.
