C.  .TIE METHODISTS  AND AMUSEMENTS.  When tlie adherents of Methodism, were numerous, it was noticeable tint a line of 'Cleavage     ran  jhrough Uu\ community because of  h;- footnote in the Methodist rules  of faith and conduct, which named some recreations as  questionable  amusements.   "Methodists,  if  they professed faith at all, could  not dunce, or play game of cards  or go to theatres.   In the amusement of the community they were  a section  iiving  apart .having ho  influence on the other members of  T.h.e community which their strong  re'igi.ous practices and belief and  conduct might have leavened for  better things.   The footnote added  to .the genera! rules in 1888     and  printed in the Discipline was the  stumbling block for many.   It spec  ifiod the acts that made for damnation in the Methodist view. Neglect of duty, imprudent  conduct  wilful  tomper,  the  use   of  intoxi-  .can'ts, dancing, playing, games  of,  -'lnnce, going to theatres and circuses,- or going to dancing school  The   Methodist   who   thought   for  himself, who-,had the sense of    a  modern citizen, .had 'to  deny the,  elders unless he shut himself    off  from harmless amusements.     The,  thing did not   make  -for ���������  robust  Christianity. ;  ' 'Thai'Methodist conference of 1910  has proved itself greater'than that  of"l888 and the footnote onV'ques't-  tionabLe " amusements" has been '  eliminated. '-Remarking on the obnoxious rule and the significance  of its abolition, the Toronto News  I says; " -;  ' The note was mediaeval in tone  and in spirit ��������� It was monastic  in its atmosphere. It predicated  the existance in .a free Protestant  church o( a man.or a-, body of men  who .presumed to act as official  consck-nce for, every member. In  some cases the prohibitions were  made,without knowledge, other  iiian that based.upon rumor, and  in le.very respect it smacked of  the arrogance of virulent- ecclesias  ticism. So foreign was it to-the  genius of Methodist freedom that  progressive and Logical men in the  church fought constantly to have  removed, not1 that they might rush-  to intemperance in amusement  without danger of a church trial  but that individual consciences  might be unhampered by clerical  prohibitions.  The general conference how in  session has been brought to see  the incroguity of fetters and freedom. The footnote has been abol  ished. In its place the members  are advised to guard with great  care their refutation and not to  engage in amusements that might  prove injurious to their spiritual  life or incompatible with their  church connections.  The burden of choice is upon the  member. He is not to be weakened by listening with superstitious  awe for a declaration ex-cathedra  He is not to have his path ithro  life hedged with the iron spikes  of prohibition, but he is free to  tiavel the way that his own honest  conscience marks for.him, remembering .his responsibilty to jutitify  -ids 'acts to the incorruptible tribunal of right and wrong that  ,-iolds court within his soul.  The Canadian Methodist church  mellows with age and in consideration of its noble experience and  its .tiro men dons opportunities for  good. '  SHOOTING NOTICES can be secured at this office. '  WISE' REMARKS  ��������� ���������������������������"��������� ���������  The knocker never makes much'  of-a hit.  Following cheap advice is apt  prove expensive.  The dyer .lives to dye, but not  to help the undertaker.  Ro'member that'a sound argument doeEn't mean loud talk)..,.  A pessimist by any other name  would be a faultfinder just the  same.    ,  Divorce is becoming so common  that it may soon cease to be fash  icnable.  You may bo tho most important  person on earth���������from your own  point of view.  ' It isn't difficultfor :a man to be  good after ho gets too old to want  co be bad.  Don't bo common. 'It's the uncommon man who causes the world  ..(j tit up and take notice.  It doesn't hurt a joke to crack it  Reform is a good thing when applied to the other fellow.  An early eumcumbor in tho hand  boats two Lti tho stomach.  To enjoy love or sausages one  must   have   a lot   of .confidence.  Every  man  lui,s theories   '.about  raising a famly���������before ho marriies  It takes a diplomalic������linr to convince   a homely .woman   that   she  is  pretty.  Even if marriage is a failure a  widow is always willing to take an  other chance.  ' You neA'er hear of a man whose  income does not exceed a dollar a  day' being operated on for appendicitis.  There isn?t much in this old  world -but work. Even pleasure-  seekers have to do a lot of hustling to obtain it.  .-The reason why lightning never  strikes twice.in the same place may  be that there's .nothing left to hit a  second time.
