was elected to a Canadian bishopric He
was a slight, littH man and made but a
very small sbowin; when he dressed in the

breeches. In fact, vhen Phillips Brooks
saw the newly ele ated prelate he hardly
knew what to m ike of him. His first

behind the little hi -(hop, the doctor laid his
heavy hand gently on the other's shoulder,

A Remedy For spider Bites.
Having read of the man in Jersey City
bitten by a fcpidcr, I would suggest a reme
dy that has never failed in my treatment
for that trouble. It is liquid ammonia and
whisky. Rub a few drops of the liquid
ammonia on the bitten part, and drop 8 to
12 drops in a good whisky dram, and re
peat two or three times if necessary every
25 cr SO minutes. Repeat also, rubbing the
part bitten several times if the pnin lingers.
This is a very safe remedy for snake bite,
the moccasin's especially, if the treatment
is used in 10 or 15 minutes after the bite of
the snake. It will relieve the pain, and
usually prevents the swelling. Every fam
ily where there are children should keep
the liquid ammonia, and the whisky, too,
if the use of the latter be not abused. I am
on the shiidy side of 70 years, have been in
active practice of medicine, chiefly in Vir
ginia, for over 50 years, and I can truly say
the remedy above mentioned is safe anil
sure. William T. Fleet, M. D.. in New
Few bushes in England are more timid of
flowering than the common hawthorn. I
have seen tho hedges ia bloom here and
there, at least as early as the middle of
April, and 1 have seen them as late as tho
middle of June. Xo doubt the buds wait
patiently for such weather as will bring
out in numbers the particular flies on
which, as a rule, they depend for fertiliza
tion. On this year of which I write I noted the
meat fly abroad on the 24th of April, while
the May blossom broke into bloom on the
ETth. For must I tell the sad truth?
painful as it is to relate, the hawthorn
flowers are fertilized for the most part by

'Minding Bahy" Is Oood.
Minding baby is an expression that is
peculiarly appropriate to itself, I'm think
ing, for if that isn't just what baby's care
taker is doing the whole blessed, livelong
day, I'm very much mistaken. It's the
caretaker who does the minding in nearly
every instance, while baby revels in the
freedom of his own sweet will. Buffalo
