New Westminster, April 25���
'Busy was no word to express tht
condition of affairs at the market,
yesterday, far 'it was by far the
busiest ��na_ket of the year so far,
althongh even this wili I ec far
eclipsed as the finer weather becomes more general. The old
'building was tar too small to com-
:fortably accommodate the large
number of buyers *nd -sellers and
the produce was heaped <��p in tbe
Stalls in larger quantities -than ever
fcefore this year. One cause of the
large increase in the market was
that last week, owing to the Easter
holidays, it was not held on the
regular day, and the business dane
except in speeisfl Imes was Bwtefl.
The prices this "weelc -'remain unchanged, nor 4s 'there "it present
any reason to anticipate any
FloweTs still form * promineitt
feattircaad betore the close of business there were but few unsold.
There was a heavy demand fdr
fish and althou .h the supply was
rlarg.i, all was disposed 'of. In ad-
���dition to the'-jsnal Hires, there were
a few trout offered. Salmon and
oolicbaTiS were plentiful, especially
the latter, which-arc now running
heavily in the river.
Eggs are becoming more numerous each week:, but there is no indication of a-furtber tall in prices
at the present, the Raster demand
still affecting the market. Fowls
were plentiful with a demand equal,
$8 to $9 adozeu being the ruling
price, but many or the better breeds
���'Sold at figures considerably higher.
In meats tbe figures wmainefe
'unchanged, the supply ir. moslt liues
being sufficient for1 all demands, but
mutton and lamb were short. The
following prices ruled-;
Beef, fcitidfliiatters, 8c to $c
per lb.'forequarters, 6}4'c to 7c.
Mutton, 13c to 114c per lb.

which overspread Stephen's lace as he
placed a hand on top of tbe post and
vaulted tbe low fence.
Wheu, an hour later, they sat beside

provided by Stephen, matters grew
worse. He did not cut the sets cor-
re.fly. His fingers were all thumbs,
and he came perilously near having

Ann bound up tbe cut dexterously.
Then she "set ber foot down." "i'ou

Tke Word "Star-ratloa."
The word "starvation" wss Introduced into the English language by its
coiner, Henry Dundas, afterward Viscount Melville. It was originally used
by blm ln a speech in parliament on
the American debate in 1775 and wus
immediately caught up and applied to
himself in a political nickname, so that
he was known thenceforward as "Starvation" Dundas."
"I shall not," such was his declaration, "wait for the advent of starvation from Edinburgh to settle my judgment."
Before the time of Dundas "starve,"
"starving," "starved" and "starveling"
were in use, but hunger or famine represented tbe state of starvaUon.
Although this word bas now an established place ln our vocabulary, it
was at flrst vigorously opposed by
mauy, (md on just grounds, as of hybrid formaUon. The root "starve" Is
old English, while the ending, "atiou."
is Latin. It does not appear in any
English dictionaries until the year 1809.
