A Pastoral Experience (THE ARCHBISHOP OF YORK). It was a wet and wintry night in the slums of a great town. A woman rushed out from a miserable house-of iniquity as I passed and clutched my arm. "There's a young man dying in the house; come and pray for him." She led me through a kitchen filled with men and women, such as I pray I may never see again-too deeply sunk to a stupor of drink and lust to notice us. At the top of a ricketty staircase, we reached an attic, where cn a mattress on the floor a young man lay stretched, hollow and pallid, in the last stages of consumption. "Pray with him," she whispered, and turned to go. I asked her to stay. "My God, no," was her reply, "I'm a bad woman; I won't stay to spoil the prayer." And she went. The young man told me his story. He had wan dered into the town, penniless, to die. I The woman had met him and had pitied him. He was dying. He had nothing to give her. But she took him . to the attic; for three weeks she had a nursed and tended...
