TWENTY YEARS OF FRONTIER LIFE IN
A TEMPERANCE STORY.
By REV. JOHN MCDOUGALL.
TRATIONS, BY J. E. LAUGHLIN.
MR. McDOUGALL gives us in the 267 pages of this book a narrative of the first twenty years of his life, all spent on the mission fields of the Methodist Church.

It should give decision to some whose views about Local Option are hazy." --Joyful News.
