At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Ottawa, ont., it was decided to follow the good example set by the church at Colorado Springs, Col., and donate the local building fund of our church to the Building Fund of The Mother Church. Accordingly the proposal was submitted to a meeting of the church members, and it was unanimously decided by a standing vote to remit the full amount of the fund to the Treasurer of The Mother Church. It was also decided that on our Canadian Thanksgiving Day, November 17, a special collection should be taken for the same purpose, and a very gratifying addition was thus made to our contribution.

One year ago last May our church pledged itself to subscribe not less than one thousand dollars. This pledge was fulfilled, and we are now well advanced towards a second thousand. The church members also decided that our local church building fund should be suspended pending the building of The Mother Church extension, and that monthly remittances should be continued until word is received from the Treasurer that no more funds are needed.
