A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor wonld once more  like, to commune with your collateral.  TirKiiR was born  in  Vancouver  last  week-a new morning paper.  It i.s Liberal in politics, and will do  all in its power to prevent the Grits  from being deported.    It is called  The Sun, and its principal editorial  aim will be to scorch the Tories to  a brown and  sunburnt  finish.    It  will flag McBride upon every   possible chance, and  occasionally set  The  World  on   lire,   but its most  sanguine admirers do not expect  it to  stop  the  rain   from butting  into the real estate of Vancouver.  The Sun  puts its news up in a  shape that appeals to tho eye,   and  the paper being smaller than the  other Vancouver dailies you can  find tbe items you want to seo,  without having to employ a diver  or ��������������� detective.    If The Sun  will  always remain small in^size, even  if it has  to throw out ads, it will  win  with   busy  people,   who   are  tired wading through sheets  that  aro big enough to blanket a country  lawn.    The coming   of The   Sun  makes  another   record   for   Vancouver.    That city is now the only  place in Canada that has a paper  published upon every  morning of  the week.    The Sun  fills the gap  left vacant by the News-Ad. on  Mondays.

In Nelson the other day a saloon  man was fined S100, for selling a  bottle of alleged whiskey, in the  first moments of a Sunday morning. Time brings many changes.  Twenty years ago they would fine  a booze dispenser in Nelson if he  did not sell anything the crowd  wanted on Sunday. ..-���������  Spring must be already climbing into the lap of winter at the  coast, for a writer in the Vancouver  Sun says' that, "on the edges of the  '' The C.P.R. demands cash for  tickets and freight, and should pay  its bills in the same way. The  fact that it does not pay its bills  promptly is a blot upon the general  effective management of this great  railroad.  His friends in tho Kootenays  would like to seo Fred Starkey of  Nelson in the Provincial Legislature. He is a man of great public  spirit, and would be. a valuable  man to send to Victoria.  Fino   Rossland   Lemons  Tlie treatment meted out to the  Phoenix hockey and ski clubs at  the Rossland carnival has not enhanced the reputation r>f that town  as a homo of true sport. Tho same  shocking commercialif-m seems to  have inoculated its sportsmen as it  did their hotel keepers somo years  ago when they doubled tho price of  beer on the occasion of one of their  celebrations.  For some time past the people of  Phoenix have made every effort to  have tlieir representatives present  at the Rossland carnival, and in  doing so thoy have been influenced  by none other than tho kindliest  feelings for the success of that  event. Apparently they have forfeited every right to ex poet a continuance of those visits which  should accomplish so much toward  cementing the friendship of neighboring cities.  All tho   visitors   from   Phoenix  have returned with tho same story  of hostility and  ill.feeling on   the  part of   the   Rosshuidois.    There  was the case   of the   Phoenix   ski  club. No one could possibly charge  them with   dollar'   chasing.    Yet  they were tho recipients   of   much  the  same  "polite"   consideration  as that handed out to  the   hockey  team.    The   bare suggestion   that  Engen should allow a handicap   of  twenty minutes   over   a course of  seven miles can be regar.led in no  other light than a piece of   unpar-  allelled impudence   and   a   veiled  effort to keep   the prize   in Rossland at any cost.  So disgusted are those who had  the " honor to be present that it is  a difficulty" on tlieir part to control  themselves when speaking ef their  Rossland experiences. The semi*  final for the B. C. championship  between Phoenix and Greenwood  wa3 nothing short of a fhsco, aud  the decision of those responsible is  open to serious doubt. In this instance the injustice was particularly  flagrant and constitutes one of the  coarsest deals ever recorded in the  annals of western hockey.���������The  Phoenix Pioneer.  Tiieke is not much need for free  speech in Vancouver, when you can  get a billboard ad in the daily papers of that town for a few rupees.  Since the police stopped the hot  air in-Vancouver, there ir nothing  free in that city except the rain.  From Many Minds  Music is the universal language  of mankind.  Before we can bring happiness to  others, we must first be happy ourselves; nor will happiness abide  within up unless we confer it on  others. If there be a smile upon  our lips, those around us will soon  smile, too, and our happiness will  become the truer and deeper as we  see others are happy.  A Demagogue is a Politician  whose chief ambition is to stand on  the grave of a great, dead industry  and boast to a multitude of the unemployed of his bloody deeds. ���������  A happy life is not made up of  negatives. Exemption from one  thing is not possession of   another.  There is no solitude  in   nature.  Let not the littleness of people  disturb you. Remember that if  you have been made big enough to  do big things in life, you have been  made large enough to overlook  little things. So do not imagine  you are great so long as by sifting  yourself you find jealousy, hatred,  malice, or even the spirit that frets  in your heart. These amf Greatness sleep not in tho same soul.  Reckon not, my brother, this  world-side verdict of victory or de-'  feat. The victory is not in vor-  dicts, but in tho spirit of your  fight.    Lifo is not for eaHC, softness  {of   comfort,   lily bed    peace   and  dainty pleasure,' for fortunate grasp  and secure possession���������life   is   for  the   forging    and   tempering,   by  every   imaginable   fiery   baptism,  test and impact, of   tho   beautiful  spirit out of the dull  ores   of   circumstance   aud    matter.    Lifo  is"  first,  and   above   all   things,   for  growth, for tho   unfolding   of  tho  fine, and the evermore fine, of the  beautiful, and the evermore beautiful, from the smallest atom guessed by science, from crystal, flower,  beast, man,   world,   God,   forever  and forever, infinity without  end.  Nothing is deep, difficult, or profound when   you get    acquainted  with it.  Gall can never fill a vacuum.  You can not believe in honor until you have   achieved   it.    Bettor  keep yourself clean and bright; you  aro tho window through which yon  must see the world.  Resting quietly under an ash-  tree, with the scent of flowers, and  the odor of green buds and leaves,  a ray of sunlight yonder lighting  up the lichen and the moss on the  oak trunk, a gentle air stirring in  the branches above, giving glimpses of fleecy clouds sailing iu the  ether, there comes into the mind a  feeling of intense joy in the simple  fact of living.  the world says of him���������whether it  ! crowns him boss or pelts him with  bad eggs.   I   care, not  a   copper  what his   reputation   or   religion  may be: if   his   babies   dread   hiB  homo-coming and   his   better half  swallows her heart every time   she  has to ask him for a five-dollar bill  he is a fraud of  the  first  water,  even though he prays   night'aud  morning until he'is   black   in the  face and howls hallelujah until he  shakes the   eternal   hills!    But if'  children rush to the front door   to  meet him and love's sunshiue illuminates the face of his face   every  time she hears his footfall, you can  take'it for granted that he is pure,  for his home is,a heaven���������and  the  humbug never gets that* near   the  great white   throne   of   God.    He  may be a rank atheist and red flag  anarchist, a Mormon and a   mugwump; he may buy votes in blocks  of-five, and bet on the election;  he  may deal 'em from the bottom   of  the deck and drink boor until   ho  can't tell a silver dollar from a circular saw, and still be an infinitely  better man than tho cowardly little  humbug who is all suavity in   society but who makes homo a   hell,  who vents upon tho helpless heads  of his wife and children an ill   nature he would inflict on his   fellow  men but dares not.   I can forgive  much in that fellow   mortal   who  would rather make men Rwear than  women weep;  who  would   rather  have the hate of the whole   world  than the contempt of his wife; who  would rather call anger to the eyes  of a king than fear to tho face of a  child. ���������Brann.

" io lie' no  limit to newspaper enterprise, but It  has remained for Budapest to Inaugurate, a ^system of. news distribution  In whioh ' there seems to ' be * great  possibilities', -particularly ' in view of  the remarkable Invention'In the old  country of Mr.-, Grind ell Matthews,  wuo has been demonetrajting how easy  It Is* to telephone without the use  of wires. Mr. Matthews, with" the aid  of hie apparatus, ��������� which ' consists  solely of a (small box,' containing the  battery, motor, and transformer,  which can easily be carried about and  thua enable .every "man,'If he wishes,  to have his own telephone with him,  has managed to speak clearly and  distinctly by his system of wireless,  telephony over a distance of six mlels.  Shortly he hopes. to. speak over fifty,  miles, and as 'time goes oh and he  improves his Invention, he does not  'see why the distance should have any  limit.       ���������-.,.. '   -    .  ;\The voice travels through the air  ���������in rippling waves, and what Mr. Matthews has, achieved Is the control.of  ,the direction of the waves .by means  of electricity,- so that they ��������� are attracted by" the . receiving machine  wherever* It" may be.  AH the City. listens.  ��������� -Among the people most Interested  in this Invention are the newspaper  proprietors of Budapest, who some  time .ago adopted a unique device  which spreads 'the latest local and  foreign news throughout the city in  'less than.ten minutes after the central  news office has received the Information.  , The Instrument of dispatch Is  called the "talking newspaper," and  It Is neither a public phonograph nor  -'a "news sheet hurriedly distributed.  It is a sort of telephonic news service,  and Is the only thing of its "kind In  the world. Working In connection  with the' associated newspapers of the  city, a central office ' has .'.been established, which Is ..-'the core of the  curious system. At-the first hint of  news coming In over the -telephone  instrument to any <rr all of the newspaper offices," this, central telephone  office is called, and whatever *the news'  Is, from far or near, the bureau- is  advised of it in full."  'The 'bureau agent then-Tings his  signal calls to his special news telephone at the same instant every subscriber in Budapest. After a reasonably long'_ interval/ long enough to  'allow subscribers to get to their receivers, the despatch is slowly and  distinctly read at the central office  and subscribers all over the city stand  listening to the same voice. After  the news is read it Is once repeated  for the benefit of those who may not  have clearly understood the first time  or who' may have been delayed In  answering the signal.  COST OF AJTEItCA'S DISC0TEBT  less Thau $8,000 Was Expended by  Columbus, on His Great Voyage  to this Continent.  This ie rather a difficult thing to  ascertain, ,but eome deductions have  been made and some conclusions arrived at. Professor Rege says that  the cost of the first fleet of Columbua  was 1,140,000 maravedls. The value  of'a maravedl was about % of a cent  In modern money. The contribution,  therefore, that was made by Queen  Isabella was about $7290.00, without  taking Into eoneideratlon the higheT  purchasing . power and money In  thaBe daye. The city of Palas, Spain,  also had to furnish ��������� out of its own  means two small ships manned for  12 months. The cost to the State,  therefore, of the Journey of discovery  was not more than $7,500,00, about  the price of a modern first class automobile. Of.thia euni the admiral received the sum of $820, the captains  $192 each, the pilots ?128 each, and  a physician $88.50. The sailors received for the necessaries of life each  month about $2.45. Not a very expensive' trip considering the value of  the discovery.'  ARN0TT & MINE  Proprietors  - On Laziness.  Dr. Charles A'. Eaton' said In the  course of an after-dinner speech in  Cleveland:���������  . "Laziness is responsible for too  much of the misery we see about us.  It-is all very well to-blame alcohol  for thla-misery, to blame oppression  and'injustice; but'to'"what heights  might we' not all have climbed but for  our lasln-ess?"  He paused and smiled.  "We are too much like.the super-  numeracy in the .drama," he .went 'on,  "who had to enter from the right and  say, 'My lord, the carriage waits.'  " 'Look here, super,' said the stage-  manager one night, 'I want you to  come on from the left instead of the  right after this, and I want you to  transpose your speech. Make it run  hereafter, "The carriage waits, my  lord."  "Tho super pressed his hand to his  brow.  "'Moto   studyl    MoTe   study!'  groaned."  Making Bad lForso   ���������  A' clergyman was severely reprimanding, a man- for, regularly going  to sleep every Sunday afternoon when  he (the clergyman) preached.  "Well, sir," said the man, "I don't  ���������think It's your "sermon sends me to  sleep. If you notice, I'm asleep before you start to.preach. The fact is,  sir, I have been in the habit of taking  a' nap at about that houT o'f the day  for years, and now I can't get out of  it."  ��������� "It's a very bad habit," remarked  the "clergyman, though somewhat  mollified at the thought that 'his  preaching wasn't the cause of the  man's somnolence; "and, apart from  Its being very improper behaviour in  church I should think It must Interfere with* your Sunday night's  rest"  "No, sir, it 'doesn't' ��������� thanks to  you,"  replied the "man. ���������  "Thanks to me I What do you  mean?" Inquired the astonished clergyman.  "Why, sir, my son is learning shorthand, so, for practice, he always takes  down your sermon, and when I am  In bed he begins to read it to me, and  I drops off to sleep in no time!"   .  The clergyman's feelings can better  be Imagined than described.  THE OLDEST NATION  China Is the Oldest Live Nation with  the Most Homogeneous  People.

The greatest  danger to the adult eye comes from  overstraining ���������and overtaxing and  oontlnued use of the eyes without  change of position or focus.'  Our eyes are always working, and  how often does it occur to us to give  them Test?

It was  probably old when Egypt was young.  China was,China 'when Abraham went  out from Ur of the Ohaldees and became the founder of a new nation.  Beyond all questions, China is the  oldest living nation, and most homogeneous.      . , -  The sages, rather than the kings,  have shaped China. The teachings of  Confucius, who lived in the sixth century before Christ, expounded a  moral philosophy and a scheme of  human ,government' which, roughly  speaking, made China. His "five relations" have fixed the social order;  these are the relations of ruler and  his officials, husband and wife, father  and son, elder and younger brother,  and friend and friend. These account for the formalism 'and fidelity  of social tics in China, and for the  complete subordination of the individual. Filial piety is the cardinal  virtue. The Emperor, who is the  "Son of Heaven," is an absolute autocrat, because the people stand toward  him in the relation of children to  parent. The system or government Is  thoroughly patriarchal. Through all  storms and stress, this doctrine has  held the literati loyal to tho throne,  and has furnished, down "to recent  days, sublime instances of devotion.  Confucius is the Atlas who has borne  the "Middle Kingdom" upon his  shoulders. And' Confucius ' kept his  own face, and the faces of his people,  turned toward the past. The colossal  conservatism of China Is directly  traceable to the sage's teaching concerning the "good old days" and the  rights of the dead.  ���������' N*Lr-"'j *.; Jr. m  ' 'i    -.ZrlrvJ'V'S^S.

IN TIIE WEST  A piece of, railway construction  that is almost unique is now under  way. on the British Columbia Division  of the Canadian Northern Railway.  It is a three mile stretch between  Snp.i<v<; .Bridge and Welhacliin located at a point about an equal distance trc-m the towns of Lytten and  Ashcroft and in" that strip of right of  way four tunnels are to be built. One  will be fifteen hundred feet in length,  another a thousand feet and the two  others five hundred feet each.  Recently six hundred men were  employed there but this number will  probably be doubled in the immediate  future. Owing to the anxiety of the  Canadian Northern to complete the  entire section of their line from Edmonton to Vancouver -it is probable  that construction work will be proceeded with during the winter. This,  however, should prove in so sense a  hardship because of the mellew  climate of the coast province and of  the fact that this underground cutting will place the men employed  beyond the Interference of conditions  obtaining outside.  In addition to this section of heavy  rock work there are two other tunnels to be built In this mountain  district that are even of greater size.  One of these, which is located near  the town of Tale Is to be almost half  a mile long, or to be exact 2,070 feet.  The other bore Is to be made In the  Block Canyon close to the town of  Ashcroft.
