AMONG THE CHURCHES

CURRENT NOTES.

Ottawa, Canada.—Ground was broken on May 5 for the erection of a new church building in the capital city of the Dominion. The location on Metcalfe street, in the heart of the city, is admitted by all to be one of the best the capital affords. It is only a short distance from the Parliament buildings and is near the Victoria Memorial Museum. The lot has a frontage of 110 feet, a depth of 150 feet, and faces on three streets, namely, Metcalfe, Gilmour, and Lewis, the whole being surrounded by a number of beautiful maple trees. The price paid for the land was $27,500.

The building is to be of Italian classic design, the same treatment being carried throughout the entire structure. The main entrance will be from Metcalfe street. There will also be two entrances from Gilmour street which lead directly to the basement Sunday school hall. The auditorium will be 72 feet wide by 65 feet deep, and it will have a seating capacity for seven hundred and fifty persons. The building is to be completed within the present year. There is great happiness among the members in the prospect of being able to build a church which will more adequately represent Christian Science in the capital of the Dominion.
