PREACHING VERSUS PRAYER.—An amusing story is ioat now going the round of clerical circles in connec- tion with th" re-openiuz services at Chester Cathedral. One of elected preachers was the Dean of B-. TTe is well known as-eloquent almost beyond equal, and pX'Trise o? bis particular talent in that reject led ta a rath°r awkward curtailment of the service. It rfiould be said that it was not taken in the usual order. The sermon was to be preached first, and then prayers and a't,hems to f llow, members of some of the neigh- Konrinf cathedral choir* being in attendance to assist £ V musical part, of the service. They were to leave fcv a certain train, and having that fact m his mind, at •L expiation of 45 minutes, the precentor quietly named the word "Omit the next anthem. The Dean continued, and when he had preached an hour another whimpered message wa" passed to the choir—Omit the two anthems." Still the Dean kept OD. A third ■ewe at the end of 75 minutes—" Miss the prayers." The end of this remarkable state of things was that the Dean monopolised so much of the time that even the collection was omitted. But almost the best thing, aerhaps *as the bon mot with reference to it made by ibi«bnp who was present. After the servce had at last excluded, friend'y critics were reviewing the very tevereni pre^her's stvle. One characterised it as very CI road." "Yes" rfOlprel1 the bishop, "almost as broad as a wag loner "—North Wale* Chronicle.

M P., the Deans of Bangor and St. .&.8aph, Colonel Williams, Mr Rathbone, Archdeacon Wrnne Jones, Captain Moger, R.N., and a number of ether gentlemen more or less interested in the movement. The noble chairman having stated the objects which fcdustrial trainine ships had m view the Bishop of Bangor moved the first resolution, to the effect that it was desirable the ship should be moored in the Menai Straits between Beaumaris and the bridges, which was seconded bv the of Beaumaris, and carried unani- mously Lord Penrhyn then read a letter from Lord Clarence Paget, enclosing a cheque for ten guineas, and recommending Bangor Pool as the most eligible site for the mooring of the St. George, an opinion which was MTWorted by the hydrographer to the Admiralty. Mr Watkin Williams moved the next resolution, pledging the meeting to carrv out the object in view with as little delay as possible." He hoped hi. countrymen would aaPDort the movement, which was one of the greatest •radical value, anl worthy of being ranked m the same Mtegorv »s Abervstwi.h University.
