A Worldly Man Surrenders.

A clergyman says, "I was very anxious for the building of a mission

chapel to accommodate a flourishing mission-school that had been

organized under my pastorate. Knowing that a certain physician of the

city was possessed of abundant means and had a praying Christian mother,

though he had long since given up going to church, I resolved to call

upon him. Before starting from my study I knelt down and asked God to

prosper me in my appeal. Upon going out of my parsonage the physician

was in the act of passing in his carriage. I hailed him, explained to

him my desire, and the result was not only a contribution of money as

large as the largest, but a gift of a lot for the chapel worth several

hundred dollars."
