London Tit-Bits. 11 Long' Sermon. 1 Perhaps the lengthiest sermons a record were preached by Isaac Bar row. On one occasion when preach ing in Westminster abbey, at a tlune when visitors were shown around the place after the sermon for a fee, he kept on so long that the authorities "caused the organ to play till they had blown him down." .When he preach e. I on charity before the lord mayor and aldermen the sermon lasted three and a half hours, and if the collection came after that It probably suffered. And, again, when he had arranged to preach on the words i'He that uttereth a slander is a liar," precautions were taken beforehand, 'and he was prevail ed on to preach only the half relating to slander, leaving out that which had to do with lies. In this way he man aged to finish in one hour and a half. Very likely some of his hearers wished that he was not quite so fond of work. London Standard. Turkish School Children.
