tn nuthorlze such a statement. A
bishop Ik a groat ins-tltutlon, and
whether or not the early founders ot
tho Christian religion were right In all
their Ideas they made no mistake In
retting up a bishop the very first thing.
Now a bishop has u certain halo
about him impossible to dellne and
equally Impopslblo to classify. It sets
him apart, inaken him distinctive
among men and in all denominations,
whether he wears vestments and mil
linery In profusion or wh&ther he looks

coat nml white ncclc-cloth of the fra
ternity. His otllco somehow drawa
about him an invisible guard ot dig
nity and men instinctively doff their
hats at his approach and defer to his
opinions when he speaks.
When he has almost the power of
life and death in his hands, the clergy
men under his temporal y rule, self-
effacing as they must seem from the
voluntary vows they have taken, nat
urally yield every appearance of def
eienco and obedience to his wisdom
and decrees. Wo who aro not thus
bound and others who by no force
of religious government or precedent
acknowledge any superiority, may
smile a little at. this apparent humil
iatoin and perhaps may even criticise
if sarcastically, but after all there Is
a glamor in acknowledging the author
ity of a superior In the religious world
just as In social political or military
The private in the innUs, often looks
up to the leader of the hosts with a
sentiment verging on idolatry- Tho
other oflicers. when not influenced by
Jealousy, arc apt to entertain the sumo
sort of feeling. Tt Is the natural inner
yielding to recogniced power, tho god
like quality in man that separates him
from his fellows.
It was this supreme control of mind
as well as matter that made Xapoleon's
grenadiers weep for love of him. It
was tire greatness of his rank, as well
as the magnetism of the man, that
caused Loc's f-oldlers to go mad with

Hero In democratic America we aro
rrot supposed to look the second time
at royalty or to envy rank. Vet wo
run enthusiastically after our own
rulers, set them up In shrines and kow
tow to them for a lit IK lime and then
pitch them down and erect new idols.
When we go abroad we aro as eager
to chase after the nobility as arc the
nutlves, aird at home we display a deal
more energy In that direction. The su
perior has u ehurnr.
In tho political life, a great leader
compels similar adulation by tiro sheer
force of his superior ability. Wo may
turn again and rend him when anothoV
popular man comes along, but wo
always lravo some guidon to follow
which Is held high in some strong
