S. of which he was pastor, out of which has grown the world-famed "Teacher Training Course," which has been adopted by churches of all denominations and which has boosted along Sunday school work most marvelously. While the church has not reached the great growth in Canada that it has attained in the United States, its Increase has been steady and as the missionary society reaches out to assist the weaker churches and help them, the work proceeds with, earnest enthusiasm.

Mr. Dunbar claims to have been the first settler in this part of the country, and has the best horses and cattle in tho west, and is facated on the creek in such a place thnt a traveller would stumble on it. He is protected from the winds no matter which way they blow. While he owrra a small amount of land, he Is satisfied to have his stock on his own and other land thnt supplies a vast amount of teed. He looks after his stock himself, and prides' himself In that ho can always handle his young stock, us they aro always broke.

"The Restoration Movement," as the beginning of the present day church was called, w^ts inaugurated to remedy the evils of the then terribly divided condition of the denominations. In tfielr search for a common ground for union, the preachers of the day wero reminded by Mr. Campbell that only by discarding^ man-given names and man-made creeds and rituals, and substituting the Scriptures as their sole guide, could the many branches of the church find common ground for union.
