LIFE OF THE SUN  Old Sol's Heat Will Warm tlie Earth  for Millions cf Years  The reason why the sun retains its  heat in spite of tho quantity* that it  gives out. is explained by the fact that  licai is generated by the fall .of particles toward ihe centre. The diameter  of the sun diminishes annually by  150 meter., a little more than the ten-  millionlh parr of its total.  According to estimates 'made, 30,-  000 years will pass before the solar  radius diminishes enough" to produce  an effect appreciable by tho most delicate Instruments, always supposing  that the astronomical instruments of  t.V. future will ���������>:*��������� sir-ihsr to the in-  *-* --ii-.ir.i>tf. of lh * ;-i_sci*r. liy like calculations It"t_ estimated that th'o sun  will send heat to tho earth between*  six millions and eight millions of  years longer.  ltadium, which emits heat spontaneously, is present in the sun. One  grain of radium frees enough heat in  one hour to raise a grain of water  from the temperature of ice to the  temperature of boiling water. Hence  tho presence of this element assists  in the preservation of the sun's heat.  The spectroscope reveals great quantities of helium in the sun, quantities  great In proportion to the sun's other  elements. The presence of helium  is due to the disaggregation of indium. The grains of radium per ton of  the sun's elements would be enough  for tlie entire regeneration of all the  heat lost by the sun. *  FAST FREIGHT SERVICE  Buying on Instalments  Boile���������Th<* Rinkersnmst buy everything on the hire system.

George W. Cable, tho author of  many delightful stories, of the south,  recalls an incident of his boyhood  days, which were spout in New' Orleans.  A fierce old colonel ono day called  his negro coachman to him. "You  ,vero drunk yesterday!" lio roared.  "What do ycu mean by such a per-  Joimanne?"  " 'Twas an accident, sah, 'pon mah  wcrd."

Words Out of Joint  The    English    language, above all  others,  is  the  most  remarkable  for  tho  number  of its  word, -that have  been-completely changed in their significance aineo they  lirst came  into  use.    Iu  some  cases  their  meaning-  has been exactly reversed.   A conspicuous  examplo of  this  is  the  word  "let,"    which    Shakospear.p used several times with the meaning "to hinder."    Hamlet exclaims, "I'll make a  ghost of him that let me," meaning,  j of course, "him that stops me."  i    Tho word is used in the same sense  Iin the Bible as in II Thess. ii: 7: "He  iwho  now  letteth,   will  let,   until  he  ' be taken out of the way."   ���������  "Ravel"  and  "unravel"  means  exactly the samo thing, though at one  time  to  unravel  probably  meant  to  [reduce confusion to order.    Compare  'the words "valuable"    and    "invalu-  i able."  Sometimes a comparatively short  time, sulfides to set a word adrift  from its original and true meaning  and to cause people to forget, what  its real significance is. This is illustrated in our word "tumbler," meaning a drinking glass which sets  squarely down upon the table, without a "foot" as in the case of a goblet.  What a "tumbler' really is may be in-  ferreck from an extract from a gentle-:'  man's diary, written in 1803, which  also    throws    light  upon  theN social  mcilnTilc_of .lh���������_t-'rn_._ .TV,__:_���������.,_ _rv_'';  as follows: ,   .  "Had a few friends to dinner.  Tried my new tumbling glasses. Very  successful; all got drunk early."  Theso tumbling glasses, soon called  "tumblers" for short, were made with  a round or pointed bottom so that  they could not be set down when  they contained liquids, without falling over and spilling their 'contents.  They were mad a as a sort of joke to  conduce to rapid drinking.  But the namo was applied'to n  glass which had no fool, but was cut  oil so squarely across tho bottom that  it stood firmly on tho tnblo, so that  it was really less 'liable to "tumble"  than au ordinary goblet. A genera-  lion Rtifi'lced to seo tho change  wrought In tho uso of the word, .and  the comploto disappearanco of tho  original significance.  Tommy���������Say, Pop.

Makes  Record.,Time    With  Shipment From Shanghai  to Minneapolis  From the Freight Department of  the Canadian Pacific" and "Soo" Kail-  ways there comes a story of a fast  shipment of walnuts from Shanghai  to Minneapolis." The'shipment,.which  was composed of 500 bags of nuts  weighing SU tons, was mado from  Shanghai, via the Canadian- Pacific  Railway's'steamship, tlie ''Empress of  InUia." This boat left Shanghai for  Vancouver November" 7th, arriving  there November 24th. At Vancouver  the C.P.R." has a special train in readiness and as soon as tho consignment,  could be transferred from .the ship  the" train was hurried Eastward. Portal was reached early in-the afternoon  of November 30th, and from there the  "Soo" line rushed tho shipment to  Minneapolis, reaching thero on Doc.  2nd in time for delivery.'  This is exceedingly good lime, especially when. winter operating conditions are considered and L. E.  Doudiet & Co., the Minneapolis firm  to which the shipment was made, expressed themselves as very much  pleased with the service rendered  them by tho Canadian Pacific Railway and the "Soo" lines.

Aviation in Japan  Although the art of making kites  has been cultivated sin Japan from  time. immemoTOl,. and the man, lif tins  kite, tho* precursor of "tha" modern  aeroplane, was, according to tradition, utilized by a banished daimjo  to send a message to his vassals in  tho year 1156, Japan has been slow  in taking a share in the great recent  development of aviatiQn, as well as  of othor branches of aeronautics.  Two years ago, however, tho Japanese government sent two army officers 10 Europe to study aviation, viz.,  Capt. Hino to Germany and Capt.  Tokugawa to France. These officers;  besides making themselves proilcient.  in iho art of Hying, purchased on behalf of their government a number  of aeroplanes of various makes, Bleriot, Wright, Grade, Farman, and havo  now roturned to Japan, where they  are giving instruction to a number of  othor officers. For tho purpose of  these lossons the government has established a large aviation Held auout  two hours joui'Hoy by railway from  Tokio.  Tho government has also organized  an official society for tho study ol  aviutior., its members l>ciug nil gov-  ernmeiu employes, military aul naval  officers and professors in the isiiporial  university. A grant of ?:,7"i,000 has  recently boon" voted to ihis organiza-  tion.  The Japanese are not largely, dependent upon -.01-1-igncrt. for their Hying machines. Cs.pt, I'I mo, Dr. Xara-  liara, Capt. Jsobe, of the navy, Messrs  Morltao and Tsutsuki and Baron Iga  nu*%o devised various forms oi" aeroplane. ��������� *     . i,  Eacli of the' important newspapers  of Tokio now has a department devoted to aeronautics. The Ilochi  Shimbun, the leading papor of the  city, has engaged the services of  Messrs Takata and Inouve as "aviation editors" and Asabi Shimbun has'  a similar functionary in tho person  of Mr. Usui. The semi-ofllciai journal  Kokumin has offered a prize of $>5,000  for a flight over the Bay of Tokio.

Rhodes, an American,  is tha  Accredited Original Contractor -  England in tho past has lent sous  to assist Turkey in -building an ad-  equate navy. Germany has also dono  hor share; but.it rests with the ubiquitous Yaul: to claim the Fatherhood  of the Fleet, which has just been,  from all accounts, -doing its best to  checkythe importunities of Italy by  playing a gamo -somewhat resembling  tlie "cross touch" of our youth. This  father of tlio Turkish fleet, was ono  Foster Rhodes, born on July 17, 1794,'  tho son of Captain Henrv R. Rhodes.  His fathor, we aro told by the New'  York Sun, sailed- a brig from the port  of New York, and It is not difficult to  understand that FoBter in a very short  tlmo wanted to have to do with the  sea and tho things of tho sea. After  going fpr, a time to tho schools of  Kinderhook, whore lie was born, he  was apprenticed to a silversmith.  This life, however, was not to his  liking, and lie joined a shipping firm  by-the name of Adam and Noah  Hrown Here ho showed au extraordinary aptitude, so impressing his chief  tliat ,he wns taken to Erie, Pa., in 1812,  lo help in the construction of a brig  which helped Commander Perry to  defeat the British ou Lake Krle. Aftor  many vicissitudes in connortion with  the shipping trade ho arrived at Constantinople an expert at his craft. Tho  Turkish government offered Rhodes  contracts to construct, ships. Rhodes  declined, insinuating Mint his object  was to sell, not to construct,  ."lam part of my vessel," bo said.  The Turkish government, found that  if ihey wanted Rhodes as a naval  constructor they would have to buy  his ship, so they bought , it. Thus  Rhodes took over his new duties, and  commenced by building a. yacht for  iho Sultan which was moro like - n  warship. After this he built a fast  yacht for the potentate, and then ten  shins for lhe Turkish navy.  Of course, .the ways of the bustling  American were new to the Turks, and  Rhodes was the central figure in several amusing incidents. ��������� At the  launching of one of the vessels there  was a great gathering of Turkish officials, including the Sultan,, who sat  under a silken tent.  '"The methods of Rhodes in getting  a ship off the ways were strictly up-  to-date, but-novel to the Turks. The  Turkish custom had been to have several huiulred men cling to heavy lines  ���������atiached to-the ship, so that when sho  did slide iuto the water, she would not  make a deut- in the bank on the other  sldo of the Bosphorus.    ��������� *  ��������� ��������� .-  - The moment' for letting the ship off  the ways had almost arrived.'and* it  became apparent that' there was uneasiness among tiie ��������� Turks, who  thoueht they know something knout  sending a boat into the water. ' Several Turks, whispered to tho Sultan.  Then an official came, over to Rhodes.  Behind him "marched a couplo of hundred Turks.  "The  compliments of- the ~ Sultan."  or_v������*hatover'is-Turkish~for**the���������same���������  was the greeting of the official.*  "What are they for?" asked Rhodes.  "To help with the ship," said tbe official.  "Don't want them," said Rhodes.  "Take them back."-  The Amorican constructor had  standing with him seven or eight men.  .The ship cut tho water gracefully and  a boat nosed her gontly uj* stream,  and the hanks of tho Bosphorus wero  not mutilated.  The ,Sultan was much impressed  and tho next day ho sont for Rhodes.  Tho constructor avus in his shirt  sleeves. 1  "Comb into the placo." ho was told.  "This way?" asked Rhodes.  "AI  once," said the  Turk.  So lio went, not bothering about a  coat.   They took him to tho Sultan,  The shim-sleeved  Amorican    bowed,  The* Sultan salaamed.     Tlie   Sultan,  said thar. if Rhodes would becomo a  Mohammedan ho could name his tl tio  in fho Turkish Nnvy,  "No thanks." said Rhodes, "I'd pro-  for to remain an Amorican cill'/ori.. It's  good enough for me. And, besides,'  as au American citizeu, my head is  not in danger."  In tlie nlno years thnt ho remained  In Turkoy lio acquired. woalth. Ilo  had an elaborate establishment' and  the Sultan; gavo him mnny rich  shawls, tapestries and Jewels. Boforo  Rhodos left Turkoy ho-was decorated  by the Sultan, tho decoration entitling  him to privileges not accorded to  most foreigners. ,Tho decoration was  in tho form of n ship of gold with a  circle of diamonds around an emblom,  and a diamond cluslor pin with 4  chain.of gold attached. -Thoro,was a  certificate with tho pin, to this off ict-  "Tho Amorican citizen, Mr, Postov  Rhodes, having boon employed "ror  many years past in tho Ottoman aw-  mil an naval constructor, during which  poriod ho hns boon found to bo ;x parson posHosslnf. perfect knowledgo, ability, uotlvlty, and scionco In his do-  partmont, and has dono .*ood hoiwIco  to the Turkish Umpire by constructing  and building sovoral ships of the line  and othor vossols of war:  "Having now ox-vossod a donlrn to  rot urn to IiIh natlvo country, wo, to  show our approval of tho isovIdob  which ho has romlorotl and our entire  ���������jiUIt-fiictloii, havo given this corllfl-  cnto, soalcd by our own seal, nnd do-  llvoi'od In his own hands, CoiiHtantt*  noplo, 20 Shorvnl, 1251, (January 1,  1810),"  Added to Ihe Long Lis! due  to This Famous Remedy.

What  is 'moro invaluable than an accomp-  plished companion, a '' living ' volume reading its owii pages? What  an intellectual treat it is to take to  ono with whom conversing we forget  all timo! -       ,     --.   -  Tt is worth much to read the lessons  of a philosopher', bul to* hear/him impart them, ia'-worth"-'much, more.'  It Is agreeable to read thp narration  of a traveller, but far moro so to. hear  him describe what he has seen: .Besides,* there Is the opportunity of asking (niestio'ns, and skill-in interrogation is one of the chief ��������� oxcelleucies  of an apt convorser.  Lord Bacon has truly said, "Ho that  queslioneth much, shall learn much,  and content much; but especially if  ho apply his questions to tho skill of  the, person whom ho asketh; for he  shall uivo them occasion1* to - please  themselves in speaking, and himself  shall continually gather knowledge."  An Always. Ready Pill.-���������To those of  regular habit medicine is of littlo concern, hut tho great majority of men  are not of regular habit. The worry  and cares of business provont it, and  ont of Irregularity of Ufe comes dyspepsia, indigestion, liver and kidney  troubles as a protest. Tho run-down  system demands' a corrective and  thoro is none bettor than 'Parmelee's  Vegetable Pills. They are simple in  their composition and can bo taken  by the most delicately constituted.  A Fighting Missionary -  The famous British prl/.e-i'lgltlor,  Bendigo, "found religion" and turned  missionary. His methods, hjw_v-_r.  sometimes smacked of his past. Once  a group of men was pointed-o*:t to  ���������hini with tho remark-that they woe  atheists.  "Atheists���������what's  Atheists?"  queried  Bendigo.  ,He was,told.  .  "Eh! Don't believe in uo God. don't  they?" he exclaimed;   "Ere, hold my.  coat." '   .' -  Men "and Gossip  Men, though thoy indulge very free-  y in gossip thomselves,- often profess  tn bo great admirers of silenc** in women.  There is an anecdote,of Dr. Johnson, which records that -a very voluble  lady onco said to him, petulantly: "I  believe you prefer. the company of  ladies to that of meu'."' "Madame,"  bo answered, "I am fond of the company of ladies. I like their beauty,- I  like tlieir. delicacy, -and I, like their  silence." Still, though'men may and  do accuse the fair sex of a liking for  gossip, no ono can deny that many  men are as great or greater chatterboxes and gossipers than women. The.  writer has intimate acquaintance with  a gentleman who, possessing independent private means, was nearly  always to be found in tbe park or  .street gossiping with some companion by the hour together.

WiLLIAMS-.PINK PILLS  Chorea, or as it is more generally  known,- St. Vitus dance, is a disease  that usually attacks tho young children,- though .older persons-may be afflicted with it. Its most common  symptoms are a twitching cf the  muscles of tho faco and limbs. As  tho diseaso^-progresses this twltchlm**  takes tho'form of spasms in which  tlie jerking mollon may be confined  to tho head, or all the limbs may be  affected. The patient is frequently  unable to hold anything in the hands  or to walk steadily, and in severe  cases even tho speech is affected. Tho  disease is due to debility of the nerves  and is always cured by Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, which enrich' tho blood,  (one and strengthen the nerves and  thus restore the sufferer ��������� to good  health. Tho following is a striking  instance cf what Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills will do in this trouble. Mrs.  Cha3. Phipps, Pelee Islaud, Ont.. says:  ���������"At the age of fourteen my eldest  ���������daughter, Edith, became much run  down, and the trouhlo developed Into  St. Vitus dance. First, her left arm  became affected, then the left leg and  entire left side. . She grew so bad that  she actually could not hold anything  iii her hand.,and could only go about  with a sliding, Jerking motion. Notwithstanding that, we were giving her  medicine, she seemed to be growing  worse, and finally her speech became  much affected. Wc became so much  alarmed about her that finally her  father got her a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and "we began giving lier these, ln tho course of a few  weeks she was much better anu before all the pills were gone she, was  again 'enioying perfect: health. This  was in 1908. and as sho has noL had a  symntom of the trouble since T feel  justified in saying the .cure is per-  manent."-  Be sure you get the genuine pills  which are sold by all medicine dealers  or may be had nt. 50 cents a box-or  six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co..

Is Tremendous, Although Their Majesties Live Most .Simply,  King George, like the lato King Edward, docs everything that lie's in his  I'ower.to prevent undue trouble und  expense being incurred by those  whom ho visits, and everything that  savors of ostentation is most obnoxious to him. At tho samo time it is:  necessary that, a certain amount of  formality should bo 'carefully observed, iind all this runs into money. His  Majesty, for instance is invariably  ���������accompanied by. an Equerry, who, by  reason of his position, becomes a  member cf tbe housoparty,. whilo if  the Queen travels with His Majesty,  her -Lady-in-Waiting has likewise to  be included among tho guests. .It  is \*ery rarely that tho King is attended by more than two body 'servants; while throe maids, as,a rule,  ruffice for Queen Mary's requirement-*.  It is laid down that His Majesty  musyupon all occasions have a suite  of apartments to himself, a-id it is  desired that, these should bo as far  emoved from tho rooms of other members of the houseparty as possible. A  similar suite has lo be provided for  Queen Mary when she is present. Not  many years ago a well-known nobleman who was entertaining tho present King for the first time spent over  ���������U0.000 providing a new suite of rooms  for His Majesty's occupation.  When it Is at all possible, the King  also desires tliat lie should be placed  in' telegraphic and telophonic communication with the Royal palaces so  tbat ho may bo within easy reach of  his secretaries and the chief officials  of his household. Most country Ecats.  are, of course, today upon the'telephone, hut the telegraph is a different matter, and when the lato King  Edward -was once' staying in Uio North  of England his host spent $7r>0 to provide a special telegraph .wire. ' His  late Majesty, as it happened, only re-11  quired to make use of It on one occasion, when ho wired exactly eight  words to Buckingham Palace���������surely  the most oxpensivo.telegram that was  ever despatched.  Hia Majesty ^livo3 very simply, so  that in reality very little .extra cost  need bo incurred for food and drink  upon Ins account. Naturally, however t*-,r,se honored' with his company  find it incumbent upon them to exert  themselves to the*utmost to provide  every delicacy���������in or out of season���������  that can possibly be ' obtained. As  much as $5.00 apiece1 has been paid for  quails for the Royal table'boforo today, and as much-for peaches when  not in season, .while $-1.00 a basket  holding consideiably * less than a  pound of early strawberries is regarded as nothing out of the ordinary upon these occasions. ' A short-time before his accession it was estimated  that, one luncheon'. table -for ten  .guest's, at which IJis Majesty, was  present, had cost between������$l,000 and  $1,500 to prepare. And then-all that  tbe King ate was a piece of cold roast  "beef"and~s"diM"s������[lad! ~~��������� T ���������""-  .

C.  ��������� Away back in the early sixties, in  the historic days of the Cariboo gold  excitement, Mr. Lewis emigrated from  South Wales, his native land, to Canada. Not finding the venture of gold  mining in the Cariboo District an el-  dorado, he proceeded elsewhere to  try for fame and fortune iri the new  America. He proceeded to Nanaimo,  on Vancouver Island, then a promising centre for the opening up o'f a  great coal -industry.  Not finding employment, he worked  southward and landed in California".  "The Sunset Sfote of the Golden  West," and there he found work in  the mines at Mount'Diablo. Here he  did well and made a great strlV-o���������for  he met ..Miss Margaret Griffith, a  charming young Welsh lady irom his  old home shire in South Wales, whom  he wooed and wed, and his Califor  nia bride is still by his side. Mark  you, all' this took place nearly forty  years ago.  Having the vision of an ancient  seer, Mr. Lewis still believed in tl\e  great possibilities of British Columbia  and returned again to the 'north and  pitched- his-tent- in-the^great-Comox,  DiBtrict at Courtenay, .Vancouver Island. Here he has remained ever  since, a period of thirty-five years.  HV. 1; .! ,i~5 r,-.''av T f. M':'. 'if dn  Although thero were possibly -lots of  homesteadlng or opportunity for it in  those 'days, Mr. Lewis nevertheless  bought out an early settler by the  name of Charlie Gieen for a few thousand dollars, who then returned "by  Jove, dont you know," to the old land  with his., spoils.  Mr. and Mrs. Lewis have lived here  to a happy, ripe old ago and aro still  halo and hearty. They have accumulated large possessions in this wonderful and most bountiful country.  Mr. Lewis is one of tho founders ot  Courtenay, and a nunihor of the business bulldinc-s occupied by various on-  terprlFos o* orating hero wore eroctnd  by hln an si he has now undor construction (wo moro fine residencoe  which will 10 ready for occupancy  shortly.
