"Well, my little man, what can I do for you?" inquired the churchman. "The time o' day, please, your lord ship." With considerable difficulty the port ly bishop extracted his timepiece. "It is exactly half past five my lad." "Well," said the boy, setting his feet for a good start, "at 'alf past six you go to 'ell"—and he was off like a flash around the corner. The bishop, flushed and furious, his watch dangling from its chain, floundered wildly after him. But as he rounded the corner he ran plump into the outstretched arms of the venerable Bishop of Lon don. "Oxford, Oxford," that surprised dignitary, "why this un seemly haste?" Puffing, blowing, sputtering, the remonstrated outraged bishop gasped out: "That young ragamuffin—I told him it was half past five— and he— er —told me to go to hell at half past six." "Yes, yes" said the bishop of Lon don with the suspicion of a twinkle in his kindly old eyes, "but why such haste? You've got almost an hour " —Everybody's.

A report, since confirmed, reached Troy Saturday to the effect that a fire had broken out in the vicinity of Elk Creek Falls, and that Prof. Alvah Smith's homestead had been destroyed. Later reports are to the effect that the fire had been put out, after destroying 300 acres of very valuable white pine timber. The fire is said to have been started from a fire left by a camper near the falls. And it oughuto serve warning to those camping in the woods and every bit of their camp fire should be extinguished before leaving it. This blaze has done more than 810,000 of damage, and worst of it, falls on people, who can ill afford to sustain it. But even if the timber belonged to the richest company on earth there should be just as much caution and care. If as a poor there is any possible chance the guilty party ought to be sent to the peniten tiary,^and, if possible, made to pay the financial loss sustained. The authori ties cannot be too strict in this matter. The Limit of Life.

Pa i ryirl Treajiic ryls \ The following facts about Guernsey cattle were recently given In Hoard's Dairyman: There have been up to this date only about 21,000 females and about 11,000 males ever registered in the United States and Canada. There are but very few in England and only a few thousand on the island of Guern sey. Of the total number registered in North America It is fair to say that at least a third of them are dead, so that for fifty years to come there is likely to bo but little competition between breeders of these excellent cattle. The j demand for them is great, ns it Is for good specimens of other dairy breeds. There Is a growing demand fo'r well bred dairy cattle among the 8,000,000 farmers In the United States and Canada. No farmer need hesitate about engaging In the breeding of such cattle If he will but comprehend what he must do to produce a strong, healthy, well bred class of stock.

In my opinion, the best method Is to keep all utensils clean, says a writer in Kimball's Dairy Farmer. Cleanli ness is one of the first laws of nature, and too much of It cannot be applied In handling cream to bring the highest market value. By cleaning I mean at first, after the cans come from the creamery, to rinse them with cold wa ter. wash and scald them with hot ter thoroughly, so as to destroy all the bacteria.
