Fitnsy bnuon n a Pintn, —
Stories like that of tho eutomv.on l;on,
which walked forward to the I'rench King
and opened it 3 lireasr, dircovertd to bs full
of lilies, are no more than the feats daily
performed by Messrs. Maske'.yne and
Cook. Again, when Leonardo da Vinci
constructed certain figures of mnimils for
Lso X , which flew through the air, he waa
merely catering for tho amusement of a
learned triflVr whose " philosophical Lj
quiry," as Vas3ari callj it, did Dot rise
above a weak dabbling in alchemy. True,
some of these experiments have a half
humorous, half-subtle meaning, affording a
pleasant glimpse of one aspect of L ■ouitr
do's character — as, for instance, when he
once caused the intestines of a sheep to be
cleAnrted and ecraped uatii they were
brought into such a state of tenuity that
they could be held within the hollo* of
the hand; then placing in an a^joiniug
chamber a pair of blacksmith's bellows,
made fast to one end of the intestines, he
would blow into them until he canaed
them to fill the whole room, which was a
very large one, insomuch that whoever
might be therein was compelled to take
refuge in a corner. He thus showed them
transparent and full of wind, remarking
that, whereas they had previously been
contained within a small compass, they
were now tilling all space. And this, he
would say, was a tit emblem of talent or
genius. Vaasari goes on so atate, "he
mads numbers of these follies in various
kinds, occupied himself much with mirrora
and optical instruments, and mtda the
racxt singular experiments in seeking oils
for painting, and varnishes to preserve the
work when executed. "
" Better be alone than in bad company."
True, bat anfortanately, many persona axe
nerer in so bad company a* whan they are

THE METHODISTS.
THE QUESTION OF TBE UNION OF

Canadian arethoduts Take an Advance
Step— Tbe Progress Made Toward
The Union.
[Corresiiondencs of the Kecokd-Umos.]
Montreal (Cmada), October 12, 1882.
The movement in favor of the organic
union of tbe numerous branches of. Meth
odism, which found such a strong ex
pression and received so gratifying an
impetus in the London Ecumenical Con
ference, is still making he&dway, and,
notwithstanding the apparent backset it
received at the General Conference of the
M. K. Church Sjuth, which met in Nash
ville last May, there is really a fair pros
ptct of its speedy consummation. With
the opening of next year, pending the elec
tion of delegates to the General Conference
of the M. K. Church, which meet 3 iv the
spring of the year following at Philadel
phia, the discussion of this subject will be

From the Southern Church may pitch his
address to the same high key of brotherly
yearning to which the epochal appeal of
Dr. Ridgaway w»9 pitched ! Following
closely on the heels of this gathering will
come the grand Christmas re-union of
American Methodism, to be held Decem
ber, 1884, in the city of Baltimore, in
celebration of the organization in that
"cradle of Methodism," one hundred
years before, of the original Methodist
Kpiscopal Church of the United States.
What will be the issue of that family
gathering, in which old memories will be
called up and the liner sentiments given a
loose vein, time must be left to deter
mine. Meanwhile events are transpiring
among our Canadian brothers which put
them in tho lead in this union movement,
and which make it almost certain that
ere the Christmas Conference shall meet
the consolidation of the different branches
of Methodism will be, ou their side of the
line, an accomplished fact.
THE METJIOIMSTS OK CANADA
Are divided at present into four distinct
orcjanizitions. The largest of these is the
Methodist Church, having about 125, 000
membtra and 1,200 ministers. This is
modeled after the British Wesley an Church,
with a few change 3of government necessi
tated by the larger extent of the country.
Next ia the Methodist Episcopal Ctiurch,
having 28,000 members and 400 ministers,
and being governed much as ia our own M.
E. Church. The Primitive Methodists and
Bib!e Christines are smaller bodie«, num
bering about SOOO members each, neither
employing mora than a hundred ministers
and both being non-episcopal. The largest
of tlic?-e four churches (the Methodist) waa
formed ei^ht years a^o by a coalition of
the old Wrsleyau Methodist and M-.thodist
New Ciunexion bodies. The latter brou^.it
about !S,OOO members to the new fold, and
hencs tnc union v.-au re&lly )ees a coalition
than an -.bs. rption, the former church car
rying with it its old form of church gov
eminent, giving up only a D^rt of its name
and conceding to the Now Connexion
brethren the single item of lay
representation in the General Conference.
This partial union of the Methodists of the
Djminion, effected ei^ht years ago, was the i
outcome of an effort two years previously j
to unit: the whole. A j jint committee
representing all the churches held a meet
ing at that time, to see if a basis of union
could be found. The good ship of fra
ternal feeling had smooth sailing for a
while iv the deliberations of that body,
but she finally struck and was totally
wrecked on the rock of the episcopacy.
The brethren of the other churches, form
ing theip ideas of thesa dignitaries from
the English Church, would have nothing to
do with Bishops in any form or under any
name, and the representatives of the M. E.
Church
AT ONCE WITHDREW.
At out the same time the Primitives aUo
withdrew from the committee, impelled to
this course, it is said, by the Primitive
Methodist Church in Great Britain, the
result being the committee's diibandment
and the dropping for the time of all further
negotiations. Two years later, when the
subject was reopened by tbe Weelejans,
the only chnrch that responded was the
Methodist Ntw Connexion, and then occur
red the above-mentioned coalition between
these cliurohes. The msdern movement
in favor of union began about four years
ago in the quarterly and district meetings
of the different churches. All these, after
fall discussion, voted favorably. Subse
quently tho principle was indorsed by the
Annual and General Conferences, with the
result to date that another joint committee
has been created, whose deliberations at
their first meeting last month were mirke.l
by such perfect harmony, and by such a
comuundable disposition to make mutual
concessions, as to give promise that at its
next sosc-m') ing, which occurs in Toronto
the last Tuesday in November, it will reach
a satisfactory agreement, and, lacking only
the&djustment of details, leave the churches
organically one.
The members of thiH joint committee
who represent the Primitive MethodUts
and the Bible Christians were appointed
by the annual deferences of tho-e bodies
in the Bprin^ of tho present year. Ia
Auuuat the General C. inference of the M.
E. Cnurch met at Hamilton and followed
-uit, appcintiug as it-i repreeentatives
twenty ol its most influential members and
laymen, with Dr. S. G. S'.oae as their
Chairman. The delegates from the Meth
odist Church were appointed at the Gen
eral Conference which met in the same
place two weeks later, and then, at the
beat of the Methodist General Conferer.ce
and in the intervals between the sessions of
that body
THE COMMITTEE BEiiAX ITS WORK.
As a basis for its deliberations it adopted
the diecipline of the largest of the 'our
bodi,-3 represented, and, showing the es
sential oneness of Methodism ia its theo
logical and moral aspects, at once agreed
without discussion that all parties cculd
CDrdial'y accept both the articles of re
ligion and the tenet al rales of that church,
which, by the w-.y, are substantially the
same as those subscribed to by the differ
ent Mt-thoJisms in ourowD country and iv
Great Britain. On the subject of '■ Church
Government" it «vas agreed that, as a con
cession from ths two ttronger to the two
weaker branches, the united church
should have lay representatives in tho
aunu\l Confawnoaa, while as a grar.t
from the Methodist, the Primitive an;l
the Bible Christian churches, to
tho M. E. Church, the principle of the
General Saperintendency was accepted.
Here the deliberations of the committee
were cut short, and the General Confer
ence of tbe Methodist Church being still
in session, the representatives of that
body reported what had been done. With
the proviso that they were not to consent
to any such recognition of the general su
perintendency as vrould interfere wi*h the
presidency of the annual Conferences, or
otberwire limit the p^rvera of tboae bodies,
their report was accepted, and their num
ber being increased t-> fcr'y, they were in
structed to go ahead in their good work.
Thus, the rock on which the ship went to
pieces in the former voyag-, ii now as gool
as passed,
ASD NO DAMAI.E DOXE.
The harbor, however, is not yet reached
and there may be danger ahead from other
source*. The work of coneeesion has but
fairly begun, and the question of final
union really reaolves itself into a question
of whether or not each Church's stock of
charity will hold out. The Methodist
Episcopal Church has already consented
to give up the life tenure ia its Episcopacy,
and expects to get a twelve-year tern con
sented to, though at a pinch would take
eight yean. Other points which this
Church will Le asked to yield or modify
are the ordination of local preachers, the
Deaoonate as an order in the ministry and
the itinerant presiding- eldenhip. The
officer* in the three non-Episcopal Churches
answering to presiding elder* are the di»
trict chairmen, who, like the other minia
tera, have a pastoral charge from which
they draw their support, their district
work being light and seldom calling them
from the bounds of their own circuit.
About the only objectors to the sacrifice
of the practice of ordaining local preachers
will be the local brethren themselves, and
it is said that already these officials, scent
ing the probable concession from afar, are
BEGINNING TO MAKE A FUSS ABOUT IT.
The Deaconate will not be very stringently
contended for, as several of the leading
members of the Caurch in Canada have
frankly stated that, except by inferential
construction, they find no warrant for it
in the New Testament. Should any con
tingency arise to render impossible a union
of all four of the Churches, an alternative
would probably be found in a union of
three of them ; in which case the one left
out in tne cold woald be sure to be one of
the two larger, viz., either the Methodist
Cnurch or the If. E. Church, for the
smaller bodies, it is said, tired of single
blessedness, are bant on getting married,
even if in so doing they have to illustrate
in ecclesiastical procedure the prophetic
saying that "two women shall lay hold of
one man."
This strong impulse toward union in
Canadian Methodism is largely a matter of
economy. The Northw< st Territories muse
be supplied with the gospel, and this must
be done with as little outlay of missionary
funds as possible. At present there are
many places where three Methodist
Churches stand almost side by side, each
drawing largely for support upon the home
treasury. Lat theae three become one,
and the spiritual needs of the community
will not suffer in the least, while the one
church will become strong and self-sus
taining. This argument from fects, with
a commossen.se mosey basis,
Is very potent just now across the border,
and it will have its weight in the near fu
ture in hastening a union of forces in the
United States. The statistics of Method
ism in Canada are highly creditable. This
body has progressed by a tiva per cent,
more rapi ly than any other religious
denomination, 3nd by a five per cent,
also beyond the increase in population.
United together, its different branches
would constitute the largest Church iv the
Dominion, excepting tbe Koman Catholics,
and saving in the Province of Quebec,
would far outnumber even these. In mem
bers and adherents, it has under its influ
ence one- fifth of the whole population of
the country, which is now put at about four
millions.
Of course the powers of the .Toint Com
mittee on Union are merely advisory : but
should a basis of nnion be agreed upon,
extra eossiens of the governing bodies of
the four Churches will at once be convened,
and there a little denbt that tho commit
tee's work would be rUified. Then, next
spring, the Quarterly Conferences will be
called to give the final verdict ot the peo
ple in the case, and that this will be favor
able i 9 fully assured from the fact that it
was in thcee town tribunals that this latest
nil loudest demaud for uuity had its or
igin. H. T.

SNAKE CHARMING.
, Some years agr>, when Cairo was tho
, Cairo of the "Arabian Nights," and not
the disieptutablo-looking, second-rate coua
: try towr: it now is, we inquired if there was
i aly possible successor to the old tnake
-1 charmer whom old Anglo Indians may re
i number to have seen playing with his
cobras before Shepherd's hotel. (Was be
not at the Zjo in the wonderful year 1851 ;
and did he not properly dcclinp, withou'.
thanks, our offer of two or three lively
captll r /8 then in our collection ?) After some
trouble we lighted on a furtive Arabi cutiti*
in the usual long bhie shirt, girdled round
the waist to form the upper par'into ispocics
of ep'.euchan or sporran. In this he seemed
to keep lia dirly pipe, his packed of to
bacco, and whatever portable property he
had ai-quiied mere or less honeitly. With
him we resorted to divers ancient stables
aid outbuildings in the suburbs and con
jured him to liurl a snake. Placing a
email wooden pips between his lips
he tooted quaintly an old Arab
air, now low, now hardly soft, and
now high and lonl. Thus he wandered,
tooting and furtive, and we followed
exceptant. At liar, arriving at the old,
half dark, ovilsmvlling stable, he appeared
to get excited, gave vent to still wilder
Fqueak?, circled round and round and
round under a big palm tree beam, and at
!at, with an ear-i-plittingnote, he squatted
suddenly dowr, dasiring his bands appar
ently upward, and clutched a
big cobra which he evidently intended
us to belu-ve had been charmed from
above. I say apparently for I am certain h'j
hoisted the brut.- out of the "bosom" of
his blouse. Now this was pretty, but
hardly satisfactory ; so, instead ot giving
our charmer "backxreesh" (having a man in
i authority among v ), we promised him bas
i tinado i? he did not capture a enake in the
open. Very limp about the loin* and very
yellow rid the Arab cauiff show through
h<B brown ekin, but we were re
lentless. "Cobra or Tuko?' and co he
searched with great care — not to find what,
in fact, he did not want to rind. At last
one of us spied the tail of a good sized snake
protruding from some unnamable rubbith.
'Now, n:y friend, catch u« that snake,
or " Ha tooted not— the "or" had
taken the mus'c nut of him, and, overcom
ing with a visible effort his shuddering
horror, ha caught the tail in one hacd
and rapidiy ran the other up the body
till it reached tha nick. Pinning
this between hia ringer and thumb, he
caught up the tail of hia blousf,
and, forcing the brute to close his
jaws upon it, tore out rapidly aga ; n, evi
dently with the intention of teariug out
the -i-.i-.ii! fangs, irkioh he did to a certain
exrent to his owu eatisfactioo ; bnt he was
wary to the end, and, insiead of putting it
into his pouch with hi* old friesd, he
knotted it up in a 1-a/. Acd so he went
his way, and we went oars, with a
gentle feeling that if we had been
" done " we were to a certain extent
not aware of the fact. By the way, acK>oa

The Original " Star si-angled Ban
nek."—Mr*. Margaret Sanderson, who
died in New York city recently, at tbe age
of S5, was the lady who made tho flig
which inspired Francis Scott Key to write
" The Star-spangled Burner." At the time
of the bombardment of Fort McHenry, in
1812, Mrs. Sanderson, who was only 15
years old, made the Mag out of costly silk
with her own hands, and presented it to
Colonel George Armstead, the commandant
of the fort, just before the British ap
peartd in the bay. During the subsequent
engagement the Hag floated over the fort
and was se->n by Key while confined in the
British man-of-war. After the war the
flag was returned to its maker, and the
original Star-spangled Banner is now one
of the treasures of the Sanderson family.
The State of Maryland has made several
unsuccessful efforts to buy the tUg, but the
venerable lady could never be induced to
part with it. During the sesqui- centennial
celebration, in ISSO, of the founding of Bal
timore, a special committee was sent to
New York city to induce Mre. Sanderson
to go to Baltimore with her fl»g and allow
it to be displayed in the procession.
Although a special car was placed at her
disposal, Mrs. Sinderson, owing to feeble
health, could not go, but cent her flag in
stead, the historical fragments of silk being
