New   Westminster,   Feb.   20.��� I
There was a fair market yesterday.
considering  the  very stormy and i
wet weather, with a fair attendance
ot sellers.    Generally a good supply
of all lines of produce ruled, which
fouud a ready  sale.   A number ot j
fine animals were sold in  the rings j
at good prices.
In meat, beet was not so plentiful j
but of good qnality, while lamb and j
mntton were short of demand. Veal
bad a fair supply, with a short de-1
mand.   Pork was in good supply
and all sold readily.
The supply of eggs was satisfactory and the expected sudden drop
came, the  market  opening  at  35c
and closed much  weaker, owing to
large importations arriving daily,,
and a  further decline  may be ex-
pected.    Hotter  held  at old prices j
and   does   not   warrant   an   early'
change.

J. W. Gibson, Ottawa, read a
most excellent paper at tbe fifth annual convention of the Canadian
Seed Growers' Association, held in
Ottawa, on the 4th and 5th of this
month, on the influence of tbe
special seed plots scattered here and
there throughout the country, in
encouraging a greater interest in
some of the first essentials toward
the ultimate .occe-is of all agricultural endeavor. The speaker expressed tbe hope that the association would ever continue to recognize that well cultivated farms must
be preceded by well-cultivated farmers, and tbat tie bovs now attending our rural public schools
and academies, if properly trained
now, will eventually become a
mighty force in directing and es-

will be augmented by expenditure
from the contingent vote. This
does not include amount necessary
to complete Canoe Pass bridge. It
is expected that government assist-
jance will be extended to the Tmnk,
Scott and River roads.
The Government have been be
sieged by delegations from the
Trades and Labour Council, the
Mutual men, the lumber holders,
the liquor dealers, local option people and the usual crowd ot lobbyists, each with his little axe to
grind; all in the public interests,

Legislature is taken up with ijis-
cussing legislation which is lor the

escape the whirlwind.

while his work had been confined
to boys and girls, yet he bad fouud

his children iu this city and at the

complained of feeling slightly un*

rapidly developed into an attack of

Mr, Vallanee was for many years
a prominent resident of Hamilton,
having retired from business a  tew
years ago  alter  a long and useful
career  in  that city, during which
his many sterling qualities of char-
scter had won him the deep respect
and   esteem   of  a   large circle of
friends.    He  was educated in Dr.
Tassie's   famous   school   at   Gait,
where so manv men afterwards eminent iu Ontaiio seeurad  their education,   and  was reputed  to  be a

If you average the.cost price of J-M Asbestos Roofing over
the penod 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 mwt eeo.
