A Dilemma, —There is a good anecdote told of the late Bishop Selwyn. If it is not true it ought to be. Wandering after his manner one day through the streets of a mining village in the Black Country, he came across a group of men employed in the strange pastime of seeing who amongst the number could tell the most outrageous lie. They had got funds together to purchase a new tin kettle, which was to ■be awarded to the successful contestant. The good Bishop learned with wonder not unmixed with indignation the strange trial of skill being made. It appeared wicked to him and he expostulated with the liars on the heinousness of the action. They failed, however, to see any harm in the transaction, and told the Bishop so. He to their amazement told them he had never told a lie in his life. On hearing this assertion a stalwart miner called out, “ Gie the governor the kettle.”—Wairarapa standard.
