"0.-That I here are poisonous snakes in this par', of Southern Alberta,In spite of tho assertions of moat people to tho co'.i'rary, luts been proven by a party of working-men employed on an irrigation laternal southwest of this place. They relaU a very strange story, and if it is true, and there is every reason to believe that it is, the people would do well to be' more' precautions in their dealings with'the few reptiles that wo have in this section of the country. According to the story given out to your correspondent by-one of-the ;jia'ty, the snakes were accidentally, discovered .in nn okl abandoned cellar. During their work, which was cutting noxious weeds on the banks .of the ditch, they .were startled to find in a clump of grass and other,foliage a large reptile It .was almost three feet in length about the size, of a man's wrist in circumference, and was of a dull bluish color. ,. , The snake had large glassy eyes, �which-looked unusually dangerous and .menacing,  and the men .thought best to keep a safe distance from. Us.fangs Tliey succeeded in .despatching it, with the .scythes, which they used to cutting thi' weeds, and on examining it they found proof toward'.? establishing tholr belief that the snake was poisonous. Not satisfied with (hiding the one tile party continued their search further, whiclj investigation brought forth still more, startling discoveries In an old cellar, littered with filth and reeking with obnoxious odors, they found a veritable .Ion of the unwholesome creatures, nil curling sriii writhing in a mass. Those, on an aierage, were of the sam . dimensions a.s i lie one discovered In the grass, but a  number-were even larger. It. was a frightful picture to behold, mid if made a most profound imi ressioe. on the 'men. Late1- search has revealed the fncj that this story; however ridiculous and 'unlikely'it may seem to some,'is abso- lutely correct. It seems that the snakes only thrive where filth is per-' rait ted to accumulate, and it is little wonder they are poisonous when they exi-at in such terrible holes as the one ;ilo\e described. Thus fir no other sna'-os, answering to thin I'wsoriplion have been seen in this country, so far as your representative can learn, but this is an instance where neglect ant'. mscieaiilincsK .will eventually hreei'. thing'.; of an undesirable nature. HOW TO ADDRESS A BISHOP Plain "Bishop" Preferred to 'My Lord' by F. H. Dp Vernet ; V. II. l)u Veruct, Bishop of Caledonia (B.C.) writes a letter in church life deprecating the ufi� of "My Lord," iis a title tor Canadian bishops, {lishop l)ti Vernet. writes: "When'I came to this diooese, nearly night years ugo, 1 reciuested alt the (clergy to adrrese me sipiply as 'Bisli-bp,' except when presiding at Synod. The result, has abundantly justified this course. There is no arlilickil �barrier between Bishop and clergy, while there is none the less respect. ; "Here in the far 'west, under pioneer conditions, where all is fresh and �,1'reo, the hearty greeting on the trail. 'Bishop, I'm glad to see you,' sends a thrill of joy through one, it is so sincere, so genuine, while under the circumstances-the trail, the pack on one's back, the overhanging snowcapped mountains-the conventional title forced from reluctant, lips in dc-ferpnee to old' country cu'Ktom, would be- simply grotesque, out of harmony with the surroundings. "I have, been in camp where a mini- > ber of prospectors and miners have; been talking freely to me, as man to! man, when to'my horror .som-a east- j crner addressed me with 'My Lord' j and silence has formed upon the happy party, and with a'scowl oil the face: one after another has got up and walked out. "Why should we wear the feftors of the east when we enjoy the freedom of the west?" Mr. and Mrs. K. 1..
