Comment by Rev. W. .. Yates, A. M.
Topie, The Bonds of Peace.
scinrruna RmADUca.--Eph. iv, 1-8.
Great stress has been laid on Chris
tian union in all the ages. This has
been largely understood to mean one
ness in government. The Roman Cath
olio church has for centuries claimed
that the pope of Rome is the visible
head of the church of Christ and that
all who do not acknowledge his su
premacy and unite under him are schis- 1
matics and sinfully rebellious. But the
Greek and Armenian churches have al
ways been independent of the Roman I
power. We cannot find Christian unity
in singleness of organization.
Nor does it lie in absolute oneness in
doctrine and practice. The time has
never been when there were not divi
sions of sentiment and opinion and di- 4
versities in ceremonies and observances
of worship. The question of circumci- g
sion and keeping the Mosaic law sharply
divided the early Christian communi- 0
ties. Even Paul and Peter had sharp
contention in regard to ritualistio prao
tices. The Jewish and gentile churches
varied much in their ordinances of u
What Paul exhorts to is humility of 0
mind and conduct which is becoming to P
a follower of Jesus. While men must r
differ in some matters of belief and a
should have a large measure of freedom o
in action, yet all may so respect and c
love each other that they can work har- E
-moniously together. The real uniting b
bond is the one spirit of God. Dead 1
level. of opinion is not desirable and is I
received only at the cost of all living b
.spontaneity and progress. Forbearanoe
Snstead of the spirit of intolerance is to I
be sought. The inquisition is not the i
blest means of extirpating heresy. Per
, sleotion rarely converts the one we I
' think in .the wrong. `
The one body is constituted by union
of spiritaual aim and sentiment and does 1
not lie in saingleness of organisation or I
auniformit of belief and action. I

DUTY ON REIMPORTED OATTLE.
Deelsion of Great Interest to Border
A decision has been promulgated by
Mhe board of general appraisers that
tattle driven or transported from the
United States to foreign countries are
not exempt from duty upon being re
turned after having been advanced in
value or condition. This question came
ap on the protest of W. B. Cloete
against the decision of the collector of
customs at Eagle Pass, Tex. Mr.
Cloete imported, at that point, 1,663
head of cattle from his ranch at Sab
innas, in the state of Coahuila, Mexico.
rhe imported cattle were alleged to
have been raised from stock exported
from the United States in 1887-89; nev
Sarthelees the collector imposed a
a duty on them of 20 per cent. ad valorem.
In sustaining the action of the col
lector the general appraisers decided
"that stockmen and others cannot
i drive or tranaport cattle from the
i United States to lands owned or leased
r by them in foreign countries and im
port the same cattle free of duty when
advanced in value or condition, nor can!
such owners or lesaees who are en
gaged in the breeding and raising of
cattle in foreign countries import their
stock into the United States free of
- duty, simply because their stock cattle'
were obtained in the United States, and
i the anials for which free entry is
Selamed are descended from such1
p IDENTIFIED BY TATTOO MARKS
Skin Decorations Lead to the Arrest
r of a Woman 'taeif.
Several days ago the po~ice sent out
a description of a woman who was,
wanted for a theft, and a feature of the'
r description was a motice to the effect!
that she was tattooed from her neck to,
r her heels with pictures of dragon, ship,
I under full saell, flags and other devices
Sin India ink. She had been a circus'
sideshow performer in her earlier,
years, says the Pittsburgh Press, and'
she would probably have escaped but,
for those tattoo marks and the pres
r ence of a matron in the station housel
to which she was taken by the oficer,
who made the arrest. This incident led'
P a well-known detective to make some
t comments. "Tattooing," he said,'
"ased to be common among a certain
class of people, especially sailors, but
it is so no longer. Nobody expects to,
become a criminal, but no man knows
when it may become a vital necessity to
Sconceal his identity. A perfectly iano
cent man might be subjected. to tem
porary annoyanoe if his identity were
d known, as it would undoubtedly be it
he were marked by tattoodevices. Very
