SUB-ATOMIC.
Even a McGIll professor likea his
little bit of harmless (un nt the expense
ot the great innocent public, and of the
tlill more innocent press. Tlm latest oi
those learned jests ie the "suli-ntomic"
theory, born in the fertile brain ol a
McGIll proieseor and disieminated Inr
and wide throughout this great laud of
liberty and learning by a press whom
gullibility ie one ol tbe mnrvolB ol the
age.
Oar venerable and venerated contemporary, Nanaimo Free Press, gave lo a
palpitating world a few evi-niniis ngo the
solemn facte of tiiiB new mystery ol Hie,
and did not seem to be aware that it
waa a screaming farce which it una
helping to eproad amongst the happy
homes oi Canada. The McGIll jester's
quip thie time takee the form ol a discovery that there is a new kind oi force
lying ticking around, and it ie so exceedingly molecular that He components
ire "smaller tban atom! I"
Of course the joker relit-d upon the
carelessness of the average men nml the
average newspaper in regard to the use
of words, otherwise the point of the juke
would have been seen too quickly.
Where people Bttempt to uso language
(words) with eome precision nnd acorn*,
icy, it would be hard to palm .-ll' eucli n
palpable absurdity us "emnller than an
atom."
We expect tbat tbe next attempt of
the McGill man will he the discovery ol
aatrange, weird substance which experiment ha! shown to be beyond dlspute
"wetter than water." It requires little
knowledge to appreciate the word
"atom." It simply means something
ao small that it admita of no division;
tometbing that cannot be reduced to
smaller parte, Therclore, the "subatomic" theory Ib plain nonsense. To
.talk of a lubslnnce "lighter than with
ing" would not be more absurd,
Beware of the men of science; they
must have their fling occasionally, ior
little nonsenee now and then is relished
by the wleeit men." We shall watch
that McGill wonder-woiker; hie servlceB
ought to be worth eomething to Punch
or Judge,
iern nnd Hb {allures," Whoever the
correspondent mny be be must now be
feeling both sick nnd sorry for his absurd altank on Eomething which the
Lord Provost bus shown with uieicileBB
logic the corresponded. known, littlo
or nothing about.
The attaok waa levelled principally at
the City ot Glasgow ns the leading exponent iu Iho world oi tin. advanced
theories known as municipal socinlism,
uud thc aiiailant Eeomed to depend a
good deal upon the popular mieooncop-
lion oi the theory which obtains so
largely .throughout England, to carry
hia point. (Seemingly the respectable
old Times has lent its columns to u mere
slanderer, nnd thu management of lhat
paner eould uot hr.ve lelt comfortable
when the) rcnil the rsinnsliing rejoinder
from Lord Provost Obinbolm, in which
overy assertion made by the Times' correspondent is taken up and domoliolied.
In (act tho doughty cold-water champion
of Glasgow lino literally pulverized tho
correspondent, and tbe latter will prove
hirni-ell impervious to ridicule il ho attempt a reply.
Incalculable goud has been done in
educating the people up to the municipal eoc.isiism idea in the splendid gathering of Biilish corporations iu London,
at the iuetigntiou ol lhe Glasgow corpor
alion, to diEcuss this greatest of all the
questions before the public today. And
magnificent wns the triumph of the
municipal socialists. It took a deal of
bard talking and explaining to ding lhe
facte Into tbe beads ol aome oi the more
dull and prejudiced, but tlio lucid expositions given by Luril Prevent Ohisholm
and his associate! from the North convinced at laat. One delegate, the mayor
of a small English town, nfter having
cerlain phaeiis ol lhe matter explained
to him most carefully and clearly, roBe
and remarked lhat "there is confusion
here." Lord Provost Ul.ial.olr- inline-
dialely retorted: "11 there is It ie in
somebody's head," nt which everybody
laughed and buslnoBB went on. It is Interesting to qiloti tbt editorial opinion

Dining
to tho wide disparity between tho various periods mentioned by tho iieolog-
lata nud others who have examined the
Bkiill and the euvironm-.-ut, from which
it wae taken, one thing all havo to admit
and that ia lhat upon the one point all
men of science are unanimous—that tho
earth and man aro of vast antiquity.
On another point nontly every sclen-
title man in the world ie iu agreement
-with Ms fellows, and that Is that man
grew, if not from animal ancestors, at
all events from a very crude and imperfect progenitor; thai, in laet, present
day mnn ie the product of long agca of
evolution, nud that it ie exceedingly
doubtful if he bo even now, as some
fondly believe, peifcclin form and intellect. Tho discovery of th bo ancient
relics, such as tbe Neanderthal skull,
the Lansing und other remains of a long
passed nge only add fresh evidence lo
the mass which has accumulated with
In lhe past two centuries that man wub
con'emporanoous with many of the animals, birds and reptilea which bave become extinct, but the fofieil remains of
which arc often dug up, in various parts
of the world.
For iu8 ny years doubt rested upon the
assertion o£ some of the geologists and
palaeontologists, that man exii-tcd,somewhat in hia present form, in the tertiary-
age. That he did bo has beon proved
almost beyond peradventore during laic
yeaib.
ThecatiinateaaB to the ago of theearth
vary very considerably, ranging from
many millions of years to the Scriptural
six thousand. But as wo havo hinted, the
public should be en ita guard, and
should remember that although men of
science may differ as lo details, Ihey arc
one upon certain fundamental propositions, which may be stated as truths, the
residuum of researches pursued with unwearying industry through many generations, and representing what may safe*
ly he called Incontrovertible factB.
Aa noted, thcec-ire— the enormous antiquity of theearth, and the certainty
that man existed even in the earlier
geologic periods, probably in the tertiary
assuredly in the quaternary.

and honour of a city which haB made for
itself so enviable a position mining the
municipalities of lhe world, and we
uongmulatebini upon thus magnifying
his office. Thc reply te, if possible.even
mora crushing than waa thu reply of
Mr. Burns in the case of Biitteraea.
"The Lord Provost then quietly proceeds to demolish the correspondent's
nets, theories, and conclusions, one by
ono. Ho doea it to admiration, perfectly
calm and cool. Ho never luaea or strains
a point. Above all, ha fcptaks as ono
having authority, with abundance ol
knowledge and the experience of long
personal contact with vast business and
municipal undertakings.
"We don't know, of course, what fur
tber information tho 'Times correspondent may possibly havo up hia sleeve,
hut if, as ia probable, he put nil he had
into his first attack upun thc Glasgow
Corporation, ho had bettoi withdraw
silently from tha COD I cat now, Ior never
!ms defeat bee i more hopeloBB.
"To have drawn this defence from the
iiiuuiuli'itl head ol Glasgow baa probably
dono more for the cauao ol 'municipal
socialism'than the correspondent could
undo if he continued writing three column- a week to the 'Times' for the next
ton years."
Under the heading, "Slaying the
Slain," the Daily News deals also with
his Lordship's roply, which it publishes
at his request.
"The records of oootioversy contain
few examples of a statement at onco so
well informed in detail, so lar^e in
t-rasp, ao convincing, and so crushing.
Ir, haa destroyed the laat fragment of
authority attaching to the extraordinary farrago of iguorance, prejudice, mia-
statement and stupidity with which tho
"Timea" has filled its columna for
months past—a farrago that has won
the encomiums of gentlemen like Sir
Cliarlea Rivera Wilson, the chairman of
tho British Electric Traction Coy., and
Alderman Ivey, of WeBt Hani. Uid
Provost Ghleholm's answer, like that ol
Mr. John Burns, in regard to Batteraea,
deals almost exclusively with the caae
with which ho ia primarily concerned,
and that It may be aaid tbat tbo -case
haa, al his touch, vanished into thin air,
leaving not a wrack behind."
In the opinion of the Daily Newa, tho
Timea haa had such a lesson In thia matter aa It has not had since Kichard Pig-
got walked theearth.
The Morning Leador alao deals with
the ProvoBl'B reply:
"Even the Times itaelf muat, one
would think, be impressed with the
noinplotiMiwiioof tho answer supplied by
tho Lord Provost of Glasgow to ita contributor's attack on tho Municipal administration of the Second Cily of thn
Empire, Thero la not an Item of consequence on which tbe Lord ProvoBt doea
not fairly and eqnarely meet Mb critic,"
That protest of tho Italian proas regarding the arrcBt of Mascagni over a
miserable -squabble wilb his managers,
reminds one forcibly of Mark Twnin'e
description of the different methods
adopted by the policeman ol France and
the policeman of the United States when
desiring a person to "movo on." Thc
Frenchman all polltenoeB and suavity,

be found of special Interest, and eonii* cf
them miy emprise not a few of onr
town's people who may hnvo preconceived notious in the matter.
It is worth* while observing, befoie
taking up the local pOBtofHce businesp,
that the postal service of Camilla Imp
been mado to pay very handsomely Our-
Ing the piist year. Fur tbe year ended
June, 1902, the net revenue of the Post-
office Department was $3,888 120.10. being an increase over the revenue of the
previous year of $400,033 ill, or 13.04 per
cent. The increase in expenditure was
$45.040.78, equal to 110 per cent.
When tho Liberal Government took

depaitmutit waa BtBRgerlna under a fear-
fnl tot*d of debt, duo to tlio tiroes mifl-
m an linemen t of the Tory uovernmente
whioh preceded thc Liberals in power.
As allowing the remarkable increase
in postoffice business since the introduction of tlie two*cent; poatBge, attention
may be drawn to the fact. lhat thc stile
ol poetage'etampBln 1000 wai* only $4-
038,001.01, whereas In 1002 U had increased to $4,045,227 05.

and the amn he receives for lhid pedestrian exerciso is $100 a year.   *
The gross poatai revenue for thu year
ending June :10th, 11)02, at UdjumUh
postotlivM amounted to $1,155.32; at
Ghent linni, our nearest neighbor, it
was $010 25; nt Nnniiinio, $7,804,81*;
Ladysmith issued 2,061 money orders,

issued 0,148 money orders, valued at
$85,705,73; cbmmiBaions, $(WS -ts.
In the year Ladysmith paid 8GG money
orders; Ohemaliiua, 128 and Nanalmo,
3,100, Tba.value of these was, respeu*
lively, $0,li3 03j $2,5.8 00, ami $07_-

the favorite way of transmittm-* cash.
The total amounts paid to poet masters
on money order, postal note and other
business atir-unted lo, Ladyemith,
$122,40; Ohemainus, $81,75; Nauaimo,
$482.00.
Then we como to salaries, and lind
that Postmaster Southin receives, lie-
aidea t,hoao>mall pickiinn the sum ol
$2*8 a year, and no allowance at all fur

for handling the mail of nearly four
thousand people, while tho pOBtmaster

It ie for the LadyeinUI) people to cogitate thefle things at their leisure It ia
true that tho change in tho hz. and

rapid bb to leave very imle chance for
making correct estimates; but it is hoped that the fiscal yeurendiug Juno, 1003

Iu India there Is a bird called the

which looks just like n bottle. But it
Is not tho wonderful nest I wish io tell
you about, but something much more
wonderful, I think. Vou know In India
j birds havo many enemies, and theso
enemies are afraid of light.
So when Mr. aud Mrs. Bottle Bird
make their home tbey stick over so
| many balls of cloy all around the front
door.   Theso are really candlesticks,
j but I do not believe yon  can guess
' what the candles themselves are. They
are lire beetles.   l-'Iro beetles are some-
- tiling like our (trollies, ouly much
brighter.    Mr. and Mrs.  Bottle Bird
' catch the lire beetles nnd stick them
in the balls of clay, nnd there they
stay, making the whole nest quite
bright with light.
So, you see, Mr. and "Mrs. Bottle Bird
and all the little Bottlo Birds can sleep
qulto peacefully all night, because they
j know they tiro safe from all enemies.

HOW TO GET RICH THROUGH
ADVERTISING.
John Wanamaker, the multi-million*
aire merchant prince of Philadelphia
gave aa hia opinion the other day,on the
boIjIbcI of advertieinjr, and no man in
llie land can speak on that matter with
more authority:
"Thero id ouly one way to advertise,
md (lut in to hammer your name, yout
location, j our buslneea, ao constantly, ao
persistently, bo thoroughly, into the people's heads that if they walk in their
aieep they would constantly lurn their
heada toward your eloro. The nevva-
paper is your bo-t friend in apite of your
eriticipm. It hplpe to build up the community which supports you. When the
d:ty comes that the newepipera are dead
ihe people are near thb edge of thogrnve
fflth no one to write their epitaph."
