Rousing the Bishop's Servants. A quaint practice exists at the Bishop of London's Palace at Fulham, and this consists in what appeal's to be a time honoured custom of waking up the episcopal domestics by means of a long j pole.

The venerable man is pro vided with a slender rod some 15ft. in length, and with this he raps on the antique casements of the servants'. bed rooms in the quadrangle within the mas sive wooden gates of the large western archway, and he continues his attention until the sleeper gives a more or less grateful answer.
