A. remarkable Instance ' of this waa
witnessed , at . the great worklngmen's
meeting held at the church congress a
few years ago. There waa a vast hall
crowded from end to end with keen,
hard-headed artisans. And confronting '
them in nnserried ranks were rows upon
rows of galtered bishops, , deans - and
archdeacons the personification of tha .
stiff, starchy conventionalism of , the
Anglican church. , The force of contrast .
could hardly further go. Suddenly -tall,

slatlble magnetism about him sprang to

a great roar of applause rattled up to
the very rafters. The bishop of London
was about to address the Northampton
shoemakers. He began quite easily b.
recalling some' of his early experiences)
in the east end. ' . ,
"I remember," he said, "my first Sun-
day in Bethnal Green. I addressed a
meeting of BOO men and at the and of
the service I said to them? ' , ,
" Well, now. what shall we talk about :

''And immediately BOO voices yelled '
out: 'eternal punishment. .
"Eternal punishment!" cried ' the
bishop, with a light tone of laugnter in
his pleasant voice, "that waa a ' nice

who was out 'on his own' for the first -time
in his life. And then, of course, 1
