Mark Guy Pcu-se in. a name to
I'conjure with in Methodist circles in
HJCngland, and has become, .indeed,
r^umiliar in every household .vher-
V'^vcr the English language is spoken.
t.-'L.y -his work in ine slums of London
'and his published sermons and
'sketches be has won for himself a
'reputation equuiicil only by a few of
'the preachers of to-eu.;\ His appear-
'(. unce recently in Toronto was, therefore, naturally the occasion of' considerable excitement, extreme cager-
f'v'ness being displayed to se>< and hear
'what manner of man he is.
Altogether he gave three addresses
•\ the Sunday was in tho Queen
I City, preaching in the morning in
Sherbourne street Methodist Church,
delivering a lecture to men during
',' the afternoon, .unu preach ng aga n
■ iu r'arkdale Methodist Chu.cn ai
night; and < > eueh occasion an immense crowd gathered to hear him.
Mr. Pears.: has little of thc pulpit
about him. 'mere is nothing stereo-
Cvityped cither in his appea.ance or his
* method o*' preaching. He looks more
like an old-fashion >d English squire
ihun a minister. Of medium height.
j* with a broad, rubicund, clean-shaven
, face, eyes forever twinkling, ft fringe
_ of grey -my hair and a portly pres-
? «'nce, he is the very picti"-e of good-
nuture and jollity. His style is lieres-
',- lordian. Indeed, ho may be describ-
•. ed as the Lord Charles Beresford of
_ lhe pulpit, l.acey. breezy, witty and
' fresh, his manner of delivery and
matter are like a h'.'oath from thc
salt sea, refreshing, stimulating and
' invigorating.
it     He is entirely unconventional.   Hi*
'■*, voice hus none of the piup.t tone,  he
,, s tune's and    talks in a convint.'pnal
\ way,   as  if he    were  speaking  to    a
friend.     At  the  outset   he  is    Fome-
what abrupt;  dis utterance rapid  nnd
now  and  ugain  shrill,   wilh  a slight
touch of the falsetto ahout it; but it.
toon    steadies    down   into   a calm,
even note, that is only changed when
H  he gives expression  to f-oiue pnrtiru-
*» larly   thrilling    or  pathetic   passage.
,  Then the  whole mnn  become-  tiuns-
figured.      His  luce   shines,   his  form
1   seems to gain in dignity and poivor,
;*  and his every woid becomes a living
fo.ee,   moving    his   (iud.ltnee to   lhc
deepest libres of their being.
His favorite attitude is leaning
over the desk with his hands cluspi d
before him while ho chats familiar.y
with his listeners. Hut sometimes
his subject masters him, aud he litis
himself erect, and iioves rapidly
yihout the platform, gesticulating
freely, apparently unable to kevp
still, under the force stirring with n
In the strict sense, of thc word he
does not preach a sermon. He has
neither an exordiun nor peroration.
He is neither a textical nor a to.tienl
preacher. Though he keeps close to
his text, and announces also a subject, he niakes.no attempt to treat of
either extensively. It is human liie
as he has known it; human life with
its sorrow anel care, its burdens and
struggles, and in discussing these, ho
presents to his audience a series of
word pictures, all of thoiii vivid, all
of them real und each hearing n message.    In his hands the llihle is   not
..... or* ti,„
a book of the dead past, um. ...-
living present. He tnkt s the ch'nruc-
tes he mny be dealing with und
clothes them with modem garb, gives
them a modern setting, nnd makes
them breathe and oat and speak like
men and women of the pres-nt.
In Parkdale Methodist Church, his
text was Matthew, .11:19. He made
it the means of conveying to his
audience his conception of Christ,
beginning .vith the contract between
John tho Baptist and Christ, he emphasized the aloofness of thc former
and the brotheriiness of the luiier,
John was a voice in the wilderness;
his place of abode, his way of living, his appeurun.e and everything
connected with him, all teparntcu
him from thc rest of mankind. "I
don't ih'nk," said Mr. I'curse, in
concluding his description of John,
"that anybody Would havo as' ed
him to u wedding. 1 know i wouie.11 t
to mine."
On the other hand, Christ was en.-
with all humanity. Ho met mankind at every point. He was intenso-
ly human, and . the one ell desired
to have with- them- at 'tl.o' le'stivo
board. There was a viede. ng at
Cana of Galilee, and'He -waS the one
they thought of asking lirst. tie
was the one also who was told that
i the wine had given out and who was
j expected to supply the lack.
! It was a joyous Christ lhat Mr.
Pearse portrayed—a Christ whose
presence meant giadness and the uis-
pelling of gloom; a I l.rist who
brought happiness to the sad heart,
who fed the hungry, who healed the
sick and changed tho house of
mourning into the house of rejoicing.
With illustration after illustration
Mr. Pearse' drove the truth home.
One of the stories he told bearing
upon his theme was particularly
happy. It was on experience of his
own. He had a compliment oiu-e |
paid to him, the only one in all his
life. He was culling upon ah old
Woman, and during his visit an-igh-
bor came to the door. On looking
in the neighbor observed Mr. Pearse
and turned to go, saying that s.n o
the old woman had company' she
wouldn't come in but would return
later on. The old woman, however,
would not hear of tho neighbor leaving. "Conio in! Come in!" fhe
cried shrilly. "There ain't nobody
here but Mr. Pearse and he ant
nobody." Christ was not "company." Ho ws one of the family
for whom no preparation required to
ho  "iade  when  He came,   and  whose
presence was a source of no discomfort to the persons-in the home.
Mr. Pearso's luriiion was full of
fright sayings. The worst th'ng
that could bo said about anybody
wus not that he didn't pay his debts
or that he got drunk, but''that'he
wus not at all particular with whom
he mixed.
i The advantage of a mun belonging
to the aristocracy was that ho had
ev grandfather and a great grandfather.
Hitting at the a'ool'ness of the
clergy from the laity, Mr. Pearse
said that the pulpit was a long Way
up in the days when he was a boy.
There were some ministers who tried
to find out Cod with a grammar and
a dictionary.   He had also, said Mr
! Pearse, seen good people look so
good that, he never wanted to be
good himself.
I Quoting a certain Sister Mary, who
is working in the l.ond'.n slums, he
declared that the truest equality that
we could have with another was to
eat with that person.
"I suppose," said Me. Pearse, is
another passage, "vou've rate collec-
i lions in this country. I'm very sorry for you, but 1 thought you had,
j we- have too.7
I "Morality's much a matter of
size," remarked Mr. Pewrse, during a
reference to Zurcheus. "A man, *1 ft.
6 has to do a lot not expected of a
man 6 it. 4."

On this occasion, however, Canada

somewhat similar occasions by presenting a mug or a spoon to their

Story <*f Principal  Curl,an.
Not a fortnight after Mr. Euchan'.
induction in 1S81 he gave the whole
Upper Canada College, Toronto, in
prayer-hall assembled, a tasic of his
quality as a disciplinarian. There
had arisen some slight friction regarding, if memory serves, Day by
Day in Toronto News, a change in
tho rule allowing members of the
Sixth Form, two, in place of three,
afternoons' leave down town each
week. Mr. Buchan mnde the change
afier deep consideration, and, after
receiving a deputation from the
Sixth, promised to announce his final resolution the next afternoon at
prayers. Tho statement vvas duly
made, and it wus that the change
must tako place. Suddenly from
where the Sixth sat, came a sibilant,
long-drawn hiss. Iho boys were
amazed. • Nothing of thc kind had
been over heard in that hall before.
Mr. Buchan ga. eel towards the Sixth
and,  in cold,  even tones, snid:
"The boy  who hised,  stand np."
In a second a ta I, broad shouldered youth vias on his feel.
"A ,"  said  the  Pn.icipal,   "you-
vvill tako ten domerits.''*
Tho boy t'LVntd white and set
dov\n. lie and another were runnit.t?
neck and neck for tho headship of
the school, and tho Prince of Wal.s
scholarship. Ten demerits meant
that a number of marks reproP<-.ilt:ig

Nicholas MUrphy, K.C., who is an
old friend of Sir Melvillo Parkec,
who ha1* boen recently ill at his
homo i:i Cooksville, noted the fact
that Sir Melville, who over -10 years
ago war. appointed a justice of the
peace, is one of the Very few holders
of such office who declines to accept,
fees or emolument for his services.
While living a quiet retired life as a
country gentleman. Sir Melville has
fclways taken an active interest in
local affairs, and was wai den of Feel
County, and was reeve of Toronto
Township for several terms.
"A man of education." said Mr.
Murphy, "of refinement, and of a
most genial disposition, with both
fiiends and opponents, and a Justice
of the I'eace for many, many years,
in the County of Peel, Sir Melville
has settled more cases that have
come before him by making friends
of those who wanted to be enemies,
than any other Justice of the . eace

The Saturday  Review,  London, recently had an article under the caption of "Canada,  the Key    to    the
Empire,"  of    which Public    Opinion
published    the    following    condensation:    "Canada presents all the dilli-
culties of the Imperial problem,   and
all the aids to the solution,    in    an
acute form.    It is  the  only  self-governing colony in which the    interest
of a foreign country has reached, under our happy-go-lucky system, enormous dimensions.    .    .   .  The growth
of Canada in recent years is not   due
so much to   British as    to    United
States    enterprise,  and it must    be
obvious to all    who study the problem that if we fail now  (to consolidate  the Empire)  nothing can   stop
the separation   of Canada from   the
United Kingdom and its ultimate absorption    by the United States.     If
Canada goes, other colonies must follow, and the disintegration    of    the
British    Empire   will    be the distinguishing    feature    of    the  nineteenth
century history.     If we succeed,     we
shall    not only solve the    Canadian
problem;   the  consolidation     of     the
Empire presents no greater problem
than that.   It is not a time in which
we can adopt the free trade text, *L«t
us eat and drink  free  lood,   for    tomorrow we die.'   .   .   .   An Imperial
policy is based upon the fact that it
is the interest of the Empire that it
should be adopted;  that the    United
Kingdom will secure a fresh lease    of
life    for    those     economic     energies
which otherwise in no very    distant
future * must decay; and    that    the
colonies   will   achieve  a  more     rapid
development than is possible in Isolation.     English people,  at any  rate
those who reject the free trade    nostrums, should be the first    to admit
that the present  arrangement     with
Canada, if made permanent,  and unaccompanied with a chunge    on    our ,
part,     must be unsatisfactory     from
the Canadian point of view and     incompatible with  local aspirations.  If
we    reciprocate  by stimulating    the ,
wheat  production   of  Canada,     their
manufacturers will  find ample   Kcopo
for all  their energies  in  the  incn-a*-'
ed economic activity which the influx
of population and its demand for all
kinds    of    commodities     will  insure, ]
while at the same time there will l.e
an ever-widening market for the more
highly specialized industries    of    the
United Kingdom.     In this movement '
there can be no question of the    surrender of their independence nnd freedom of action  by any  of the colonies.   We are not going to revive the
mercantile system.     Nothing more is
required    at any stage of    Imperial
consolidation than an Imperial Council to  aid and  advise in the adjustment of the commercial relations    of
the Empire."

"Hub*" * a I'rlvHle.
When Lord Roberta was in ludia, a
complaint once reached him of the
quality ot' the beer served out from
a particular regimental canteen, and
he resolved to look personally into
the matter. He singled out a .soldier of small stature, and asked him
for hi.s uniform. This astonishing
order naturally paralyzed lhe small
"Tommy," but ho obediently made a
parol of his uniform and left it in
the chief's room. Later in the day
the private soldier's uniform issued
from the quarters with the Com*
nudor-in-Chief "himself inside, his
lace u little disguised; and as a
humble item in his army, the chief
entered the canteen, taking a seat
on a form. "How's the beer now?"
he asked. "Boor!" remarked a disgusted comrade. "Call this beer?
Why, its morn art* water!" The
Chief called for a pot, and he found
it was more than half water. The
next day the same neat, wiry figure
ciossed the square, this time in the
full uniform of his position, and another order for a mug of ale wa,-.
given to thc sergeant who was making money out of "Tommy." "Ye*,
sir—certainly, sir!" said the W...
geant, and he drew a pint of very
good beer from his own special tap.
••Excellent!" said the Chief, fixing
his keen eye on the sergeant.
•There's no fault to be found with
this. But this is not the same beer
you sold me yosteiday, whin, as a
Yoldier, I sat on that seat and paid
my money!" The Chief pushed his
enquiry home, and the canteen-
keeper was promptly court-martial-
, eniclr*.
It is an odd reflection on the sixty
years' development of the railway
system that the road beats the railway easily in London. The street
vehicles travel twenty times as far
as the train every day, and carry
more passengers. It may seem incredible, but it is perfectly true, that
the street vehicles of lxmdon accomplish a journey every day equal
to twenty times around the earth,
it is startling, in contrast with this,
that the trains cover only 25,000
miles, but the explanation is, of
course, the simple fact that for
every train there are about lifty other vehicles.
There are always running in London between 4,000 and 5,000 'buses
and trams, carrying 1,600,000 pas-
singers every day, and winn all
these are full there is room left for
nearly 12,000 cabs, for which 700
stands are provided. "Cabby," one
of the best abused men in the great
metropolis—often enough dessrving
it—drives 120,000 people about London every day.
