In ISfiO his parents removed to Adelaide, Australia, where for t-even years the youth was clerk In a business house. Hero Dowle developed tho commercial Instinct that served him so well In Inter life. He saved enough money during this period to return to IMIn burg at the ago or 20 to take n live years' course In theology and the arts. Six )carx or denominational activity wearied Dowle. who hinged for a whi rr Held of operation. He forsook his church and, In 1878, went to Mel bourne, where he set tip n freo Chris tian tabernacle, the llrst of Its kind, nud organized a divine healing asso ciation, which afterward became Inter national In Us character. He became president of this association and gained fame by going out into tho country during tho prevalence of put rid fever and apparently effecting ninny cuies by prayer and thu laying on of hands. Dowle landed In San Francisco In 188H needing money. Ho needed 2r(), and had Just told his wffo ho had "asked Cud for It " ho said, when a man ho had not seen In months came along and put the amount In his hands. That was the starting point In his wonderful money-getting career In tho western world. Two yeurH of wandering nlong tho California coast followed and then In 18l0 Dr. Dowlo, his wife, his sou Alexander, John Oladstonu Dowle, and his daughter, lCsthor, arrived In Chicago which was to bo tho theater or his great work.

Four yours uftorwards, Dowlo, boforo n largo nudlcnco In thu auditorium theatre, announced that ho was FHJnh, tho Itestnror. This as sumption or a Illbllenl personality cre ated oven more or a honsatlon among Ills followora than uny of tho .worldly BticcesseH of tho "prophet." Previous to this Dowlo had marked out his plan for Hlon city, tho crown ing orfort of his life. Six thousand acres or land woro purchased ond In August, 1001. tho first building was erected In Zlon City, which a yoar later had a population or 10,000.

Wlillo ongagoil In this undertaking his health failed nud he went to Ja maica for his health. While thoro ho Buffered n stroko of parnlysls, from which he never fully recovered. It wns at this tlmo that Wilbur Olenn Vollvln, formerly Dowlo's right hand man, pocured chorgo of .Ion City and practically deposed his for mer master, being now at tho head of former followers of Dowle.
