On this occasion the Ncrth Atlantic Trading Company bis been
resurrected and uus dragged belore the House by Mr. Borden on
a motion to go into supply. He repeated to the House figures showing tlie sums paid by the Government to the North Altantic Trading Company, and presented again
the argument used long ago, when
the matter was finally settled by
the Minister ofthe Interior, whom,
it will be remembered, cancelled
the contract because tbe company
failed to live up to some of its conditions.
Mr. Borden concluded by reading a letter from one Rumsey, ol
Sirew.sburv, who alleged lhat he
could find employment in  Toronto
for weavers.

Mr. Oliver desired nothing better
than to give Mr. Borden an outline
of hi. immigration policy. The
first thunderbolt he dropped into
the lap of the leader of the Opposition was, that tl.e man Rumsey wis

This was lombshell No 1.

Mr. Oliver proceeded to explain
his 1 olicy with respect to the employment of agents in Great Britain. The policy laid down by tin
Minister, and strictly adhered to is,
that no bonus will be paid to any
agent instrumental in bringing to
Canada the class of immigrants the
Government desires, should he at
the same time be employed by the
Manufactures' Association to briiij-
in a class of immigrants the Government does not desire to encourage, viz., artisans, and the like. Ii

Tfce Market.
New Westminster, Dec. 28���
Yesterday's tnarkctwas rather slow.
No large supplies were on sale except', perhaps, in beef. Prices held
practically the same as last week,
with the exception of onions which
advanced to $3 a sack.
The supply of beel was large, bnt
considerable meat was noticed that
would not qualify as first-class, and
as such was not in demand, good
beef was bought all morning but
mostly by local butchers and iu
small quantities at last week's quotations of 7c and Sc for hindquarters and 5c and 6c for forequarters.
Tbe supply of lamb and mutton
was not excessive but 1 .rge enough
lo satisfy the demand and sold at
steady prices, lamb averaging 14c
and mutton 13c per lb,
Pork is still selling at 9c and ioc
per lb., but some of the butchers
think that a rise may be expected,
that is, for nice pork. The older
class of heavy coarse pork will not
increase in popularity however, but
the opinion seems to be tbat young
pork averaging 150 pounds to the
carcase will be scarce in the near
future. Very little veal was in
evidence and brought 1 ic tor medium and 7c lo sSc for the heavier
Eggs still hold firm at 45c wholesale and 50c ancl 55c retail and a
fairly average supply came to market yesterday. The butter supply
was well up to the mark nnd so'rl
at 35c and 4.1c a pound.
Fowl ol all descriptions were shy,
no tin keys at all being offered
Geese also were not in evidence,
but it is highly probable that 1 .st
���sveek's ligures will hold pretty
steady ou those articles, which gold
before Christmas at 26c to 28c live
weight for turkeys, and jjSi to J. 1.25
each for live geese. A few duck.
were on sale and were being tillered
at $8 50 to $10 per dozen, while
heavy fowl were being sold for

One Young Lady's Method.
"The most effectual temperance-
lecture I ever heard in my life was
preached to me on New Year's
Day," said a young man recently,
in our hearing.
"Why, Horace, where were you?
And who delivered it?" we asked.
"T was visiting in Philadelphia,
and with my cousin, John Levins,,
set out to pay a number of New
Year's calls, It is not the custotp,
apw, as formerly, to set opt wine,
hifore guests, but it is still done
sometimes. Our second call was at
the princely home of Franklin
Graves, of whom you. haye heard.
His lovely daughter greeted us,,
smiling and beautiful, a, very qqeen
among women. The,re was also an
elegant assortment of choice wines
vybich tbe father pressed upon the
guests. 'Did you come to see
papa or me?' was always the question asked of each guest, and, so
far as I knew, there was but one
answer: 'We,. c;aqie_ tq see you.'
'My guests tqqch no wine,'' she
said; 'I: have other refreshments,
provided for tbem.' The wineglasses stood untouched. The fair
young girl flitted to and fro among
her guests, ministering herself to
tbeir needs. The father gracefully
acquiesced, and finally bad the
wineglasses removed.
'��� Did you ex^r witness anything
sq effectual as that?' said Qousin
Jpbn,,as<we staged, up thet. street
'��� 'Never,;' I ans^red, 'No
temperance leqture ever touched me
like that quiet speech: 'My guests
touch no wine.' God helping me.
it if. tbe. lastt time tbn glass.shall
ever touch my lips.'
"I have since learned that more
than one young man. began-reformation on New Xear>s Day, t^re-.
s*ilt of that very call."
"My guests* touch., no wiu*-"
They were simple words, quietly
spoken, but what did they not.
This Christian girl performed a
service as faithlqlly as though, the
kingdom of God depended uppn her
fidelity. Perhaps if do^s!���Christian Intelligence^.

the two kings and the buttermilk pall.
V't-ll. dearie, keep your head right
there on my shoulder, and I'll tell It tu
yon now.
o,ue upon n lime there were two
ti. ,.s. pretty goo.l sort ��r fellows ��n
\.\.it:-, giv bnt they wero both tremen-
(liusly fond nf buttermilk, one of
litem liked It in well that he had t\
!��� il made, for his s|_>ehit use that win.
{'.:.. wonder of the world. It was huni-
luereil out of pure gotd, so bright and
(shiny that when it watt hung out to
ni.- tlie sun huri.e.l ��rt and g:,t behind

Iln fame reached ihe other king, win.,
h:i] been ooutoiitedly drinking tits hnt-
termllk out of n len cent tin pail and
wiping his mouth on his shirt sleeves.
"Un. Im," lie cried, for he wta luii ul :

Hill the first king laughed them to
remu "Ua. Iw." ho cried, for lie was
lull of buttermilk ami vainglorious,
'���;::> tell your era Van king to stick to
t.i;." So they departed. And when
the. iiad made their ollicial report and
tiled llielr expense account the second
.hi;! jumped out of bis royal bed and
kicked his royal pajamas out of the
window. "Oiul/.i.uks," he cried, "let
ine ul him." Sv they went to war.
And when they had fought for years
ami thousain's tit goefd men who
couldn't afi'ur.l buttermilk' aud didn't
Ike it anyhow had been killed the
I'.rst Icing called a truce, and they had
a parley. "By tlie wny," said the first
king, "what did we start this vow
nbout?" '.Blessed if I can remember."
mid the second kitig, "but, whatever it
������.::������. you're uu ither." ".-.ml you're nn-
-lliey." snid the tlrst king. So they
went i.t it again, and after they were
both I'.ead from appendicitis or rheuuia
tisi i'or Roihetlilli': like that..lt was discovered lhat the seeoiiil assistant lord
of ihe poultry yard had lieen using the
goltii'ii buttermilk pail to feed the
chickens I'or Ihe past twenty years.

Gold was discovered in California la

and the fuct created tbe impression
that mines were "lying around loose."
Adventurers drifted about lu hope of
"stumbling upon a mine." Mr. Thayer
Ln his "Marvels of th�� New West"
mentions several Instances of luck/
"stumbling." Three men while looking for gold ln California discovered
the dead body of a man who evidently
bad been prospecting. "Poor fellow!"
said one of the trio. "He hns passed la
bis checks." "Let's give him a decent
burial," suid another. "Bome wife of
mother will be glad if ever she knowi
lt." They began to dig a grave. Three
feet below tbe surface they discovered
signs of gold. Tbe stranger was burled
ln another place, and where they bsd
located, a grave they opened e gold
