[Mark    Guy    Pea~.se is   a name to
injure with in Methodist circles   in
England,    and    has   become,  indeed,
jiniiliar   in   every     household   wher-
vcr the English language is spoken,
ty his work in the slums of London
Ind    his     published    sermons    and
■ketches  he   has  won  for  himself    a
Imputation equalled only by a few of
|he preachers of to-day.   His appcar-
ace recently  in Toronto was, there-
lore,  naturally the occasion of considerable  excitement,   extreme  eagerness being displayed to see aad bear
.hat manner of man ho is.
Altogether he gave three addresses
ill the Sunday ho was in the Queen
tlity,   preaching  in  the   morning     in
.herbourne street Methodist Church,
livering    a  lecture  to  men  during
the  afternoon,    and  preach ng  aga n
Parkdale   Methodist     Chinch    at
Inight;  and on each occasion an ini-
|.inense crowd gathered to hear him.
Mr.  Poarse has little of the pulpit
labout him.   There is nothing stereotyped oither in his appearance oi  his
1 method of preaching.   He looks more
I like  an  old-fashioned   English  squire
I than a minister.   Of medium height,
with a broad, rubicund, clean-shaven
[ lace, eyes forever twinkling, a fringe
of grey curly hair and a portly presence, he is the very picture of goodnature and jollity.  His style is Beris-
fordian.   Indeed,  he may be described as the Lord Charles Beresford of
the pulpit.   Kacey,  breezy, witty and
fresh,    his    manner of delivery     and
matter  are  like  a  breath  from    the
salt sea,  refreshing,  stimulating and
invigorating.
He is entirely unconventional. Hi*
voice has none of the pulpit lone. He
stands and talks in a conventional
way, as if he were speaking to a
friend. At the outset he is somewhat abrupt; dis utterance rapid and
now and again shrill, with a slight
touch of tho falsetto about it; but it
noon steadies down into a calm,
even note, that is only changed when
he gives expression to some particularly thrilling or pathetic passage.
Then tho whole man becomes transfigured. His face shines, his form
seems to gain in dignity and power,
and his every word becomes a living
force, moving his audience to the
deepest fibres of their being.
His favorite attitude is leaning
over the desk with his hands clasped
before him while he chats familiarly
with his listeners. Uut sometimes
his subject masters him, and he lifts
himself erect, and moves rapidly
about the platform, gesticulating
freely, apparently unable to keep
still, under the force stirring within
him.
In the strict sense of the word he
does not preach a sermon. He has
neither an exordiun nor peroration.
He is neither a tcxtical nor a topical
preacher. Though he keeps close to
his text, and announces also a subject, he makes no uttempt to treat of
either extensively. It is human life
as he has known it; human life with
its sorrow and care, its burdens and
struggles, and in discussing these, he
presents to his audience a series of
word pictures, all of them vivid, all
of them real and each bearing » uios-
•age.    In his hands the Bible is   nut
n book of the dead  past.   nm. .....
living present. He tukts ihe characters he may be dealing with and
clothes them with modern garb, gives
them a modern setting, and makes
them liivuthe and ent and speak like
men and women of the present.
In Parkdale Methodist Church, his
text was Matthew, 11:10. He made
it the means of conveying to his
audience his conception of Christ.
Beginning with the contract between
John the Baptist and Christ, he emphasized the aloofness of thc former
and the brotheriiness of the latter.
John was a voice in the wilderness;
his place of abode, his way of living, his appearun.o and everything
connected with him, all separated
him from thc rest of mankind. "I
don't think," said Mr. Pearse, in
concluding his description of John,
"that anybody would have asked
him to u wedding. 1 Know i woulun t
to mine."
On the other hand, Christ was on.'
with all humanity. He met mankind at every point. He was intensely human, and the one all desired
to havo with them at Xl.it u-stive
board. There was a weda ng at
Cana of Galilee, and He was tnecne
they thought of asking lirst". He
was the one also who was told that _
the wine had given out and who wtts
expected to supply the lack. j
it was a joyous Christ thnt Mr. '
Pearse portrayed—a Christ whose
presence meant gladness aim the dispelling of gloom; a i l.rist who
brought happiness to the sad heart,
who fed the hungry, who healed the
sick and changed the 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 an experience of his
own. He had a compliuii nt onco
paid to him, the only one in all his
life. He was calling upon an o'd
woman, and during his visit ann'gh-
bor came to the door. On loo;, ing
in the neighbor observed Mr. Pearse
and turned to go, saying that s.n.e
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. "Come in! Come in!" iho
cried shrilly. "There a n't nobody
here but Mr, Pearse and he ain't
nobody." Christ was not "company." Ho wus one of the family
for whom no preparation required to
he  "lade  when  He came,   nnd  whose
presence was a source of no discomfort to the persons in the home.
Mr. Pearse's sermon was full of
.right sayings. The worst thine,
that could bo said about anybody
was not that he didn't pay his debts
ur that he got drunk, but that he
was not. at all particular with whom
he mixed,
The advantage of a mnn belonging
to the aristocracy was that he ^ad
a grandfather and a great grandfather.
Hitting at the aloofness of the
clergy from tho laity, Mr, Pearse
suid that the pulpit was a long wny
tip in the days when he was a boy.
There were some ministers who tried
to find out (iod with a grammar and
a dictionary. He had also, snid Mr.
Pearse, seen good people look so
good that he never wanted to be
good himself.
Quoting u certain Sister Mary, who
is working in lhe London slums, he
declared that the truest equality thnt
we could have with another was to
eat. with that person,
"I suppose," snid "Mo. l'eurse. in
another passage, "you've rate collections in this country. I'm very sorry for you, but 1 thought you hud,
we have too."
"Morality's much a matter of
size," remarked Mr. Pearse, during a
reference to Zuccheus, "A mnn, l ft.
tt has to do a lot not. expected of a

ON THE BANKS OF THE SASKATOON.
A touching story is told of a beau-
til'il girl living in thc Canadian
Northwest who was des.-rted by her
lo"er. It was her custom to resort
to the Saskatoon River on nioon-
liglit evenings, and at the former
tiysting place watch and wait for
the return of the one she still loved.
.She also conceived the idea that a
loon which haunted thut portion of
the river would yet let her know
something about  the absent   one:

There would now appear to be a
prospect that the "dime novel" which
sells at five cents, and which has so
long nourished even as the green bav
tree, is to be an institution unknown
to the coming generation. At Ottawa recently Mr. Scott of Keg na
placed several questions on the o- del"
paper of the House that bore a very
apparent menace to the ".I esse
James," "Diamond Dick" and other
literature of that ilk.
Mr. Scott, hailing as he does from
the "wild and woolly west" has
probably had the experience out there
of coming across runaway yount-; lers
from the east, whose imaginations
were fired by the perusal of the exploits of Diamond Dick, to the poiut
of a burning desire to emulate him
and who left their homes with the
idea of bossing the prairie and cleaning up all the redskins in sight! Possibly this explains why the first gun
in a legislative warfare against the
idols of juvenile fancy should be fired
by a member who does not claim the
effete east as his place of living.
"Pernicious 1 iterative placed in
the hands of the young" has long
been a ripe theme for pulpit oratory,
along with gambling ami the baleful
ciganetto. It is to be feared, however, that the "back to the Sunday
school" injunction in so far as his
literature goes has been a wastt d one
on the small boy, who has gone on
revelling in "Sombreio t^um," or th.•
"Outlaws of the Ffcothills," while
"Jasper's Sacrifice, or the Triumph
of Doing Bight," has been allowed to
accumulate dust on the shelf of the
Sunday school library. Tens of
thousands of dime novels have beeu
confiscated by wrathy parents and
put in the fire, but sphinx-like, there
have arisen irom the ashes lre.-,h ones,
and the injured small boy has consoled his feelings with the next weekly
number of his favorite library, seeking solitary and secluded enjoyment
in the exploits of his heroes.
It is an inexpensive pastime, too,
and therefore suited to the limited
resources of the average youngster.
Let him purchase one copy and he is
sure of reading from three or four
to a dozen other diffe.ent numbers,
just as his circle of acquaintances
exttnds. There is a swapping system in vogue among boys that inight
be styled a community of interest,
whereby each is the gainer nnd the
good of each   the good  of all.
Chicago hns no gieat reputation
for moral vigilance. The Windy Citv
is something of a byword, in fact.
Yet the police authorities there have
just got busy nnd taken 12!' book-
selleis iuto custody for selling dime
novels. The action was taken at
the instigation of the Citizens' Mutual Alliance and warrant wus found
for the step in a statute prohibiting
any person "exhibiting or soiling on
the highway or at a place of business.
books, pamphlets, maga inos, or
printed papers containing act mints
and stories of criminal deeds, pictures, and deeds of bloodshed and
crime."
The preacher and the detective
strike hands on the Question of the
evil influence of the blood and thunder literature The former sees in
such reading spiritual danger, the
hitter sees common sense knocked out
of the youth, with the dime novel
mania, and In spirit lired to reckless
emulation, good and bad. The ric

The  delectlVo front ion   nl'  tho  dime
novel has a capacity for disguise ot
voice end appearance that would
make his fortune as a vaudevilliun.
All nationalities look alike to him
and he is never phased when called
upon to make a lightning change in
the pursuit of the unfortunate villain. This is his great asset and
he needs no other beyond the nerve
of a Kitchener and the capacity for
saying "precisely" and "just so" in
the right places.
There is a toi'se style about the
dime novel writer that makes itselt
felt. It is clear cut and incisive.
Here is a specimen:
"The night was dark.
Diamond Dick, mounted on his mustang,  rode briskly.
"Save me!" rang out upon the air.
The cry was a woman's.
He recognized  the voice.
"No one ian ever sav I refused aid
to a woman," he muttered as he set
spurs to his mustang.
Zip!
A bullet whiz.ed past his ear."
And so on and so on. If you read
further you would be thrilled by his
shout, "Surrender, Black Mike! The
game's up." Every sentence is its
own paragraph, and the author gives
you  "local co.'o: " and heaps of it.
The Spanish-American war brought
out its crop of dime novel literature.
It is a good sign that the "detective" lict.'.n s being supplanted

abroad of this styl» of hero. The
"sleuths," votintr and old. "Old Xing

Here is n liltlo sorm-in on honesty
that Canadians who produce for export should take well to heart. "Dishonesty on thc part of the American
chocs-maker," says an agricultural
newspaper published in Iowa, "destroyed liis English market for his
product, arid gave to his shrewder
und more honest Canadian competitor a market worth millions of dollars a year. It pays in the long run
to be honest.''
Having, according to this, gained a
market worth millions by honesty, it
should not be necessary to remind
Canadians who export cheese, butter,
fruit, and other products that "it
pays in the long run to be honest."
But such reminders are necessary.
The Canadian trade agents abroad
are sending home warnings against
sharp practices in packing goods for
export. The Government has found
it neccssar" to guard the outlet, to
prevent improperly packed and dishonest lv graded goods from getting
away to foreign parts. It seems that
tho individual producer often takes
>10 interest in the foreign market,
and that the small dealer is often
equally deficient in a sense of responsibility, so that everything depends
on the mnn who actually does tlie
exporting. The Government by various newly-devised regulations seeks
to enforce honesty where it does not
exist, and the importance of this
rnnnot be overestimated. But the
individual producer should bear in
mind that when the products of a
country got a irood reputation in tlio
■world's markets it means prosperity
for the producing classes.
Cnnitrin unci '->r . ana's.
The Rochester, New York, Chamber of Commerce sent a commissioner into Canada to study the canal
system there in operation, under construction and projected, and to ascertain if artificial waterways (here
stood in danger from the proposed
$10,000,000 canal across New York
State, on which the people are to
vote next November. In his report
to President Dunn, Commissioner
Dennis says that the Canadian does
not feel at all disturbed about the
proposed 12-foot waterway here. An
American ship canal which would receive vessels of the great lakes and
take them to the seaboard with their
cargoes unbroken would be regarded
as a menace to Canadian commerce,
but having now canals deeper than
ours will be, when completed, 10 or
15 years hence, if ordered by tho
■people, Canadians feel no apprehension about competition. As Canadians abundoned their own ten-foot canals many years ago, a twelve-foot
waterway seems to them to be trivial in these days when enirineering
skill has opened up possibilities of
ship canals, the Commissioner says.

The interesting fact lias lately
come to the attention of the Government scientists that the frog, the
edible variety, attains its greatest
and best development not, us one
would imagine, in the seinit topical
swamps of Florida and Louisiana,
but in far northern Canada, on the
extreme northern limit at which
these reptiles are found. This bonis
out an old und pretty safe rule thut
both plants and animals attain their
best development at the northernmost point of their habitat, Thus

Ohosapeako brings nearly eight times
the price of the diamond back of
Louisiana, and the best oranges an*

of tlie older generation still remember the coarse grained, sourish Havana oranges), but in northern Florida, where the irees are frequently
cut down by tho hard frosts and cold
weather.—Washington  Post.

is   the cup   that   tho   Americans    are
pleas-d  to call   the  Queen's   Cup  for
some  reason  only    known  to   themselves.   Possibly  the  hall  mark     on

Yankees assumed  that this must bo
Her  Majesty's     private  totem.      In
1851 five Queen's   cups   were given,
not one bearing the slightest resemblance to the Koyal Yacht Squadron
Cup.   Aug. 22 was the eventful day.
Fifteen yachts started,   ranging from
tlio barque    Brilliant,  893  tons,  to
tho cutter    Aurora,  47  tons.     Only

The Governor-General, in addressing tho children in the park on Empire Hay, saitl: "With all the self-
reliance that marks a new country
like this, it would be well to remember tlio gdnerous traditions and the
courteous manners of the old country. There was sometimes a tendency to demonstrate self-roHance liy

Mr. William Scott, Principal of the

ARTHUR STRINGER.
I*»n  Picture   or  Canada'*   >ew   Literary
Light-A Stalwart l'm-t.
A poet of almost heroic build is
Arthur Stringer. There arc six feet
and an inch of him. Also he is more
or Jess good to look at. An English
recruiting sergeant would scan him
with longing eyes. Seeing him in a
crowd you might pick him out for a
champion athlete or, by his smooth
face, for a matinee idol. There's
nothing about him to suggest the
uoet—save his poetry. Neither does
lie seem to have the poetic temperament, lie is no dreamer, no idler.
Mis mental poise seems to be as
sound and as well balanced as his
physical carriage, which is saying a
good deal.
Canada is rather proud of having
produced such a poet, and with good
cause. London, Ontario, is his birthplace. His yeais are about thirty.
He conies from a fine old English
family iti which there's an earldom
or something of the sort, but Mr.
Stringer carefully keeps this fact in
the background. He stands on his
own feet. You may see b.v glancing
at him that he needs no coat-of-
arms background to proclaim his nobility.
He studied and played football at
Toronto Univetsity and at Oxford.
If they gave him any degrees he has
forgotten it. Before he was twenty-
five he had published two volumes of
verse in Canada. They were slim
little volumes which brought him
small fame and less money. Yet It
Was poetry, good poetry. The Canadians, however, prefer to wait, until
"The States" discover their geniuses
before showing their own appreciation. So Mr. Stringer sailed down
into New York, prepared to starve
in a hull bedroom. Dut he didn't.
The New York magazine editors—
who are much maligned, vou know—
promptly discovered that his poetry
was good and paid him well for h's
verses. Since then, both by short
stories and verse, he has been winning wide recognition and the rewards which accompany the same.
Just now. while his new book of
poems is being praised bv tho London critics, while the publishers are
issuing his first novel, "The Silver
Poppy." Mr. Stringer is up in Ontario, on the shores of bake Erie,
looking after his fruit farm, working
in blue shirt and overalls and enjoying himself hugely, Next fall, when
his melons and pears and grapes
have all been gathered and sold, hi'
will pack his trunks and typewriting
machine and start either for New-
York or London, where he will settle
down for a winter's hard work.
Mr. Stringer's novel is likely to receive nn extraordinary amount of attention ih lhe newspapers on account of the identity of the well-
known writer who figures in the book
as Cordelia Vaughn. Mr. Strineer
first met. the lady in the .manner described in the book, and his experiences of this "yellow vampire"' are
faithfully described. Every writer in
New York will know the original of
Mr. Stringer's heroine, and few will
dispute tho truth of his portraval.
3t is more than likolv that Cordeliu
Vaughn's real name will soon be suggested in the newspapers.—The Reader.
