VICAR AS LABOURER. I The Bishop of Leicester has just reopened a church in Leicestershire which the vicar, after two and a-half years' hard work, has restored with his own hands. Day by day the Rev. J. G. Bailey has adopted the dress and done the work of an artisan, and all the time he has been preaching as usual to his parish. The plucky clergyman has raised floors, involving the use of over 65 tons of ballast and con- crete. He has fixed the lead lights in 11 tracery windows, fitted the internal woodwork, in- cluding the internal circular vaulting, internal roof with moulded ribs and carved and moulded cornices, 66ft. long. He did the carving and decoration of the oak bosses, and painted and decorated the chancel roof in gold and colours. Further, he rebuilt and renovated the organ in a new loft, and did a score of other things. The labours of the vicar reduced the cost of the I restoration to £ 1430, and only a small balance remains to be raised.
