Our Big Annual
New  Westminster,   Der.
The  market day of New-
week is always the slowest
year and this week was  no
tion,  for compared to   the
of tin
rush and bustle oi business,
market building was quiet, very
qiBtft. It was not that the peop'i

they were-every bit as anxious to
obtain    supplies,    and   'especial'.}

Marriages by order were so commou,
��y�� Prince Kropotkin In Tho Atlantis,
ihat among our servants, eaoh time ���
(*oung couple foresaw that they might be
ordered to marry, although they had ne
mutual Inclination for eaoh other, they
took tbe precaution of standing togethe*
aa godfather and godmother at tho christening of a child tn one of the peasant
families. This tendered marriage Impossible, according to Russian church law.
The stratagem was usually successful, but
once it.ended ln a drama. Andrei, the
tailor, fell ln love with a girl belonging
to one of onr neighbors. He hoped thnt
my father would permit blm to go free,
as a tailor, ln exchange for a certain yearly payment and that by working hard at
bli trade he oould manage to lay some
money aside and to buy freedom for the
girl; otherwise, ln marrying one of my
father's serfs she would have become the
serf of her husband's master. However,
M Andrei and one of tho maids of our
household foresaw that tbey might be ordered to marry they agreed to unite u
godparents ln the christening of a child.
What they had feared happened. One day
they were called to the master, and tii.
dreaded order was given.
"We are alwayg obedient to your will,"
tbey replied, "but a few weeks ago we
acted as godfather and godmother at a
christening." Andrei also explained his
wishes and Intentions.
The result was that ho wns sent to the
recruiting board to become i soldier.
Military service in these tliueg was terrible. It required a man to serve 25 years
under the colors, ami the life of a soldier
was hard ln the extreme. Blows froiii tlm
sergeant nnd tho officers and Hogging v. ith
birch rods and with sticks for the sllgb. ���
let fault wore the normal state of affairs,
l'he cruelty that was displayed surpa.'���"-..1
all imagination.
Thus Andrei hnd nc* to fncro for W
yenrs tho terrililo fnto of n soldier. All
bis schemes of happiness bad oome in I
violent end.

If you average the cost price of J-M Asbestos Roofing over
the period of years it is in service, you will see that "J-M" is
cheaper to use than any other prepared roofing. Being made of
Asbestos, an indestructible mineral, it is permanently durable,
and as it does not require any coating or painting, its first cost is
the only cost.    Easily applied by anyone.
Asbestoside is an Asbestos Sheathing and is the most economical, durable and easily applied siding known.
