a "swell" audience gathered In St. Paul's
cathedral, he created a sensation by draw
ing a sharp contrast between the condl.t n
of the rich and poor, and he "slated" ti.e
well-dTesaed women of his congregation for
their extravagance. Among oilier things
he said:-
"All admire the graceful lady 4n the beau

of being asked to resign, as might have
bishop of Canterbury,
The new incumbent of the see of York
docs not owe his success wholly to force of
character, howtvur, (or the element of luck
played a considerable part In bis destiny.
He happened to be appointed aome years
go to a little church at Portsea, not far
from Osborne House, where he attracteJ
tho attention of Queen Victoria by hla work
among the poor, tie had organised a vig
orous society for making tha local church
attractive to tha working classes and his
"strfclght taUks ' were reported to the queen.
One iiy.lhe qdeen spoke to thi young
vicar about hla work. "Why don't you get
married?" suggested her majesty. "A good
wife Is better than half a dosen curates.
Take tha ad vie of an old woman f
reply
"l, I have a curate I do not like I an
send ltlm away. But such Is not the casa
with a wife." He subsequently beca i e the
queen's chaplain.
From Portsea Dr. Lang went to Stepney
as suffragan bishop, having born "calUd"'
to that district through the Influence of hla
close iriend, Dr. Ingram, the preient bishop
of LonJon. Dr. Lang was not long In Step
ney before he had won the conf.deuce of
the people by "mixing up" In all their
local affairs; not even refusing to attend
prUe-llghllng contests, which are very pop
ular In that neighborhood. One night ha
went Into the ling at "Wonderland," tne
great East End sporting olub, and acted aa
referee. From this incident Dr. lung be
lli at part of London. Krcm the rlnj of
"WonderNnd" the minuter did not lose the
opportunity of making a speech. "I am
on a fighting platform," he said, "and It la
a good thing for tho old church o take off
Its coat In a good cause and put on the
gloves."
Dr. Lang (a a fine orator and la never at
a losa for words. He holds his audlene s
better than most English speikers and has
a direct, incisive at) la that reaches the
mark. He is wonderfully apt at composi
tion, and in this connection an amusing
story is tokt concerning one of his Oxford
examinations. One day In a class-room he
was suddenly called upon for a philosophical
