A stranger wa.s in the city yesterday,
to examine into the title of a piece of
land, which he had purchased of a man
in ct. Joseph, without investigation, or
without knowing anything of the char
acter of the iu.iu with whom he was
dealing. The deed on which his title
waa based transferred eighty acres in sec
tion u7, Kllsworth town.-liip, Douglas
county, and was attested by A. R. Ar
nold. Register of Deeds' "Lorrauce,"
Kansas. Of course, there never was
such a register, or such a township, and
any one who is in the least posted in land
matters could have told him that there
are but thirty-MX sections in a township.
Wo did not learn what he paid for his
imaginary piece of land, but whatever
the amount,, he can set it down on the
debit side of profit and loss. Lawrence
A Ulrd Story.
A pretty incident is related of a canary
hird by a- correspondent. The door of
the bird's cage was occ asionally left open,
that he might enjoy the freedom of the
room. One day he happened to light
upon the mantel-shelf, whereupon was a
mirror. Here w;is a new discovery of
the most profound interest, lie gazed
long and curiously at himself, and came
to .th conclusion that he had found a
mate, (ioing back to his cage, he se
lected a seed from its box, and brought
it in his bid as an offering to the stranger.
In vain the canary exerted himself to
make his new-fouu 1 friend partake, and
becoming weary of that, tried another
t2 k. Stepping back a few inches from
the glass, he poured forth his sweetest
rctc, pausing now and then for a reply.
K.vr, came ; end moody and disgusted,
he tfew back tu his perch, hanging his
head in hli-vjie and Mtciice for the rest of
f.h: Jay; and although the door was re
peatedly left open, refused to come out
lieptilck in Ireland.
The story of Saint Patrick's expulsion
of venomous reptiles from Ireland is
kuown to every one. Some writers have
supposed that the tradition should be in
terpicted in a metaphorical sense, and
that the worship of demons or of ser
pents was abolished by the saint. In
any case, the fact that the island was
free from these creatures is mentioned
Ly several early historians, and a native
bishop says, in a Latin poem of the
ninth century, that in Ireland "no ser
pent creeps through the grass, ami no
frog chatters in tha lakes. This latter
phenomenon remained true till the early
part of the fciiiteenth century, when a
fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, im
ported torn.' frog-spawn from England,
and placed it in the ditches. Since then,
frogs, have rj read over the country.
Several attempts have also been made to
introduce vipers and other snakes, but
apparently they have not survived long.
A specie. cf lizard, however, is said to
be iouni in Ireland. The island of Malta
claims a similar immunity from reptiles.

Bishop Jackson Kemper died in Del
afield, Waukesha coun'y, Wis., on the
24th ult. He was born in Dutchess
county, N. Y., and graduated at Colum
bia college in 180'J. He was ordained in
1811 a dminister of the Episcopal Church.
In 1835 Dr. Kemper was consecrated
Bishop of the Northwest, and in lboT
became Bishop of Wisconsin. In his
visitations he passed through many pri
vations and dangers, his exteu.-ive dio
cete being thinly settled, with limited
means of travel. To his arduous labor.-
and wte councils the present popular
etate of the Epii-copaJ Church in the
West is largely attributable.
