Phillips will take up the subject which was postponed from last Sabbath, "So Great Palvatlon!" In developing his topic Dr. Phillips will -emphasize -the thoughat that sometimes our very familiarity with some big things of life blinds us to its vast importance; that the dweller at the foot of some Matter-horn may see only the clod at his feet; the Islander horlsoned by the ocean may fait to realise the sublimity of Its moods. Just so the world views this great salvation without glimpsing its privilege. Its magnitude, or the wonder of It. Jn spite ot the fact that It Is so. simple that It requires but two 4ilngs for Its conjummation God and Tmanlt Is so democratic that It takes in Jew and Gentile, high and low. rich and poor; so comprehensive that it meets every need of the human heart; so free that It can be had for the asking, yet so tremendous that it Is tbe one All Important fact in the world. Dr. Phillips will speak in the evening also, of course. We are not able to announce his topic at this time, but he is putting his life into his work and his audience is always sure of something worthy of its profound attention.
