Thi.s  serves,to show that- sweeping changes  have  been  made in   British  laws  during the last century.    In the present    times of, advanced civilization  some question  thc justice of administering capital   punishment  for mil.-  der,   and   frequently   wc  hoar  of i)'.v  the state is ]>etit>ionod to modify      a  death     sentence to one di imprisonment for life.    For  some tame after  the beginning of the nineteenth century iir England .sheep stealing   was  punished  by death,    Arrd   today people  are agitating-to     have capital  punishment done away  with altog'jth  or.  In another old paper our reader at  Duncans     says  the  famous  actress,  Mrs. Siddons is advertised to appear  at Drury  Lane Theatre.   Thc paper  was published in 1807, and at     that  1803,   was the-real  founder of       the  future greatness of the  Times. ������In Us  early days the paper was chiefly noted for its parliamentary reports,-and,  criticism on  drama.    In'1813,       and  for some yearst subsequent, Dr.  Stod  dart edited  the Times,  and he   was  controlling' it  at the  time  thc copy  in    the possession   of our   correspondent was     'issued.    Since  that   time  England's  leading  journalists      have  wiittcr.  for  the TVmes.  At the time of th? marriage of  King Edward it ,had a circulation of  110,000, and in, 1880 the* income of  the Times from advertisements alone  Iras been' calculated at ������260,000 a  year.  We -believe  that  the  great,Taylor'  was editing the; Sun at-the date   of  publication   of  Reader's   issue,,    and  Dr.   Johnson  is said to have, contri-  time Mrs. Siddons was at tho height jbutfd articles to itiat .various' times  of her fame.   Mentioning ihat famous     We shall  be pleased to hear of any  and excellent woman  recalls to one's  mind     thc fact  that in  those days,  like the present, an actress had     to  work to- obtain fame.   Her, rise from  obscurity     was  hy  no means  rapid.  Mrs.     Siddon's   first  appearance at  Drury  Lane  was   iu   the year    1775,  and  her cool  reception giver,  by  the  critical and viristocratic audience, lie-  fore which  she appeared,   forced her  other ancient" papers that are existing jn the neighborhood.

Toronto, Nov. 7.���������Thirteen-year.old  Josie Carr, who, several months ago  murdered a baby to get a baby carriage, , was today sentenced by Judge  MacMahon to seven years in Kingston penitentiary. The judge had  consulted with Mr. Kelso, the Ontario government's superintendent of  neglected children,, and Parole Officer  Archibald.  -Be told me that he only kept-the  cod-fish and returned ab others to the  sea, as he found the cod were the  easiest to tame, and, besides, ' his  rarruiy of fish fought when less nofoie  fish were allowed to remain. The  fisn    knew      him both   by  sight   and  voice, and he had names for each one,  and had taught the older ones to  come  when  called, get up on  the dry  ledge,   and   allow visitors   to  feed and  ouch  them.

The., capital       of  Liberia      is divided  into  two parts,  the  low  and shoreward   sections   being  given   over to large  settlements  of Kru boys and indigenous negroes,  'while thc upper part of the town is  composed       of   broad      grass-grown,  streets      and substantial,   well-built  comely looking houses, churches,   olfi-  ccs  and  public buildings.  This smart appearance of the houses   is in  somewhat   striking  contrast  to   the neglected   condition   of       the  roads,    -'ihese have never been made  and are simply  the unlevelcd rock of  more or less flat surface.

Be������siele a  pocket harbor,  perched on round she>uktei*s of the naked granite, are the buildings, all tarred  black, of the Royal  Trade company.  For a background to the dismal scene  rise higher rocks, littereel with garbage  and turf huts, lire homes of the natives.    At heart the place is gay. for  our sailors wont ashore every night tc  dance   with   the   I-'skimo   girls,   while  the oilreers of ship ariel colony swapped  dinner parties,  breakfasts  and  luncheons all through a nine days' festival.

The Danes of nil the settlements' were alike In social charm, gentle and polished���������arrant gossips, too���������  and the ineloor life had little to remind  one of  the outdoor wilderness.    The  Innult servant maids wore the furry  breeches, boots to the hip and curious  topknot of their national dress.    On_  had to fall promiscuously in love with  all of them.  "Even the Danish men wore native  dress,' but there.was one important distinction���������they washed. The food, apart  from Danish groceries, was seal meat,  fish, reindeer, venison, shellfish, ptarmigan, sea birds and their eggs,,which,  as served in Greenland, are always  orono-jneed in flavor."

A Great Cantalever Hrldire.  A. cantalever bridge under construction across the St.' Lawrence at Quebec will contain a longer span than any  bridge yet*erected.    The   bridge consists of two approach spans of 210 feet  each, two shore arms, each 500 feet in  length, and a great central span 1,800  feet in length.   The.total length of the  bridge Is 4.220 feet, and although in extreme dimension's it does not compare  with the Firth of Forth bridge, which  is about one mile in, total  length,  it  has the distinction of having the longest span In the world by ninety feet,  the two cantalcvers of thc Forth bridge  being each 1,710-feet in length.    The  total width of the, floor is 80 feet, and  provision is made for a double track  railway, two roadways for vehicles and  two sidewalks.   In a cantalever ,of this  magnitude the individual members are  necessarily   of   huge   proportions, -the  main', posts, for instance, being 325 feet  In length and each weighing 750 tons..

They    continued   their  journey  to Paris,  whence  they went  to the Ri\ *era.  The same morning his deprivation  of his titles, rank, honors and position in the navy was published, but  the intercession of Count Witte and  Admiral Biriled induced the Czar to  withdraw the revocation of the; title,  but lus exile  remains operative.

THE LIFE OF THE SUN  The prodigality wilh which the snn  dispenses  heat     and  thc possibilities  which      arise    from   tins   prodigality  have  found   the subject or an address  delivered in    London by the great as-'  troiiomcr,  Sir Robert Ball, the other  night.  He could not escape from the operation or the simple rule, he said,  (hat as it gave out heat thc sun's body must get smaller. What Hie sun  would become in the future he could  not. say, but if one could goto the  sun with a measure he would Unci it  hiiel shrunl.cn sixteen inches in 21  hours.  Ten million, years ago thc sua was  nearly a million times as large as at  at present, and (he simple principle  that a red hot poker is a trifle larger  than wlierr col.I must asio apply to the  SUM.      " J  'I lie most important ejucstiern re-  gar-ding tin* sun. he* saal, is the manner in which the heat is kept up.  Supposing every particle of coal were  taken irom thc earth and poured into  the suir, how long would it keep that  orb going. It is a scientific truth,  the lecturer dec-Jared,. that thc. entire  coal supply of the world could not  ccive the sun's heat for more than  ten thousanlh part of a single'moment of time. This prodiguiity of  heat -cannot bo kept up |iy combustion  there must be some*- tremendous force  of energy.,- That is, however,- an ielo-.ii  which is assuming a clearer and more  definite shape, which gives proof how  the the sun's heat is kept.up-  The sun, it was said, by the mere  fact of attraction of its particles,  gives us as much heat as could be got  from burning 8,000 globes or cotii-  When this calculation is worked out,  and it. is remembered that it is not  only to the earth that the sun gives  heat, it shows that tlie sun might be  kept going for 24,000.000 years.  A suggestion was made that thc  execution of. the sun's energy has been  duo to radium. If radium was in the  Sim, as it was in thc bulkor the earth  then, instead of aipaltry 2*1,000,000  years sallowed the earth it would be  1.000,000,000 years. =  No part ol British Columbia today offers so many advantagss to the  investor as does VANCOUVER ISLAND.
