Markets .Commissioner whose duties  were to improve the marketing conditions for the farmers of the Fraser  Valley and to bring before the agricultural communities the value of cooperative marketing.' "In the performance of these duties, Mr. Abbott has  made very extensive investigations of  the sources of supply of all the food  products capable of -being produced  on the coast -that were being used  in Vancouver and New-Westminster.  Ho has investigated the methods under which these are marketed, includ  ing city markets, ccunmisison houses  direct to, retailers, direct to consumers,' ect. A considerable' study has  been made ofrthe standards, grades  and packages required, and the character of the supply desired. Much  is being done to popularise B. C.  Agricultural products' with the consumers and to discourage the buying  of imported supplies.  First steps have also been taken  to, make known to producers _ the  facts above mentioned in a series of  20 meetings, recently held throughout > the Fraser Valley. Already  there is-an-increase-in Go-operative  organization to improve marketing.  Much has already been "done to improve conditions-in the city, market  jof Vancouver. The necessity i'or in-  "creased* efficiency "in- production'/and  more uniform and regular supplies  of produce are being emphasized.  Under the Department, the scope  of' the Coast Markets Commissioner's  work is being enlarged so .that his  duties now cover all kinds of B. C.  produce and the marketing of them  in the Coast Cities Mr. Abbott-will  supply information', on request, to  any producer and his services are in  all respects available," as far as is  consistent-with the duties of a Departmental official, to facilitate satisfactory marketing of B. C. produce  One of the important features of  the Market Commissioner's work will  be weekly reports, No. 1, of which  is enclosed herewith. It is, however  impracticable to send these reports  out from the Department to all members of Farmers' Institutes, the cost  would be very great and many such  members are not directly interested  in the marketing of farm produce. It  is- also undesirable to publish these  reports in the newspapers as there  will be many times items of importance to producers which, for various  reasons, should not be issued through  the public press. The Department  has, therefore, decided to create a  mailing list for this report in the  following ways:  (1) Members of the British Columbia Fruit Growers' Association  will receive the reports. Membership  in this Association gives the Prairie  Market Reports, Crop Reports, and  all other advantages of Membership  in that Association as well. The membership Fee is $1.00 or 50tf if paid  through affiliated associations, and is  payable to the Secretary, R. M. Wins-  Jlow, Box 968, Victoria, B. C.  (2) The Department will create a  special mailing list for the Coast  Markets Commissioner's Report, for  which a subscription fee of 50(( per  annum will be charged. This covers  merely the cost of postage, and  should be sent addressed to the Horticultural Branch, Department of Agriculture, Victoria, B. C.  The Commisioners Weekly reports  will be issued from Vancouver each  Saturday morning so as to be in the  hands of producers the. following  Monday.  Report No. 1, April 10th  During the past week a fair quantity of-rhubarb lias been received in  Vancouver, the greater portion coming from local B. C. points. Price  $1.75 to $1.25 per box. Many boxes  from new shippers are short weight.  Tlie price was forced down early  in the week on account of the low  price advertised by some of the large  retailers receiving rhubarb direct  from the grower. One shipment received by one retailer was the means  J of lowering the wholesale price 25������  to any other cause other than the  fact that the shippers loaded- retailers up with such quantities-without  regard for proper distribution.- In  many instances the retailer had to  "sell to the jobber. Owing to'-the fact  that we have not yet any proper cooperative marketing system working,  growers should refrain from shipping  in competition to themselves as far as  possible. Within the last tendays a  number of shipments of lettuce and  rhubard sent direct to the retailer  have been turned over to the wholesaler, r  It is impossible, for any producer  at a distance to judge the selling capacity of a retailer, and invariably  one finds some retailers' over-supplied  and dropping prices to. clean .up. We  will be able to look at this question  quite differently when, .our growers  become  thoroughly  organized.  For the benefit of new* shippers,  we give a list of Vancouver Whole-  sele Produce Dealers:   '������������������  A. P. Slade & Co., Oscar Brown Co  Ltd., R.

More than 7000 persons saw  the gam'e, and it was estimated that more than $2000 was taken in at the game in addition to the large number of tickets:  sold. Before the beginning of the game, quite a ceremony  was; gone through for the benefit of the motion picture men  in "attendance: Swain was driven on to the field in a motor  behind a band followed by the players of the two teams and  the semi-professional city league. A party of Tacoma women  escorted Mrs. Swain to a box in the grand stand and presented  her-with a huge bouquet of flowers.

The annual value of tlie forest products of British  Columbia in  1913' was nearly $34,000,000      The  forests  of  the  Province' are   so  ex-  to  support  in  perpetuity  as great  an. industry,  or  $170,000,000.    This sum  practically  all   of  which  would-be distributed in the Province  for labor, supplies and transportation  would ensure continued prosperity to  all   classes,   beneltting   tlie   farmers  with   the  tardesmen   and   mechanic.  Tho markets    of British    Columbia  lumber  and   other   forest     products  must be found outside British Columbia.    Mr.  Ross has  therefore,   been  active   in  securing" the  appointment  of tlie Chief Forester of the Provinuc  as a special commissioner of the Dominion Government to investigate the  possibility of shipping Canadian lumber to all the important foreign markets, of.the world.  Ho will visit    in  particular   the     United;     Kinjgdom,  France, Italy, South Africa, Australia,  New Zealand,   India,   China and  Japan.

This in view of the fact  that postage stamps may be obtained at all points over the whole country, in many places where there is no  Collector of Inland Revenue and no  Inland Revenue stamps could be obtained, is a distinct convenience to  the public, and no doubt will be largely taken'advantage.of.

ARATHUSA'S VISIT  Tommy took his little gray kitten  with him when lie went to visit his  grandmother. No one knew until  the last minute that he meant to take  Arethusa; what a small commotion  that one small kitten made!  "My kitty must go," Tommy had  declared: "I can't leave her at  home alone!" And then he added,  "The conductor will not make her  pay her.fare; she is not five.years  old."    \  Arethusa was placed in a market  basket, and when she "miaued" all  the people turned and looked at Tommy. '   But they  did  not mind.  Arethusa-travelled-safely and had  a happy visit, but when the "time  came to go home,'- she had' grown -to  be a large cat, and the, question- of  carrying h'er- home- again came- up.  Mother ' wanted' to leave her  behind , to catch the - mice  in the barn;' but Tommy said, "You  would not leave me���������and Arethusa  belongs to me!" ���������  One day Tommy .came' down'  the attic" with a nice brass bird-cage  in his hand.    His eyes were shining.-  "We can carry kitty ' in this' he  said. "She can have meat in one!  side and milk inlhe other.",  He had forgotten that' a cat's head  is larger than- a bird's;" of course, to  feed her in that way was impossible  When the time came to go, they  placed kitty in the cage. It held her  very well���������all but her tail; that  waved between the bars. She waved  it-often, for she was pleased with her  new quarters. She purred ��������� happily  when the passengers spoke to her. '  "Why, this must be the cat- that  ate the canary" one said.  "Oh,  no,"  said Tommy;   "my cat-  loves   our  bird.

A NEW GAME  In the game, "The neighbor for  me", the players are seated in a circle  One player has no chair, and stands  in the center.  The child left standing asks any  one of the palyers, "How do you like  your   neighbor?"  The other answers, "I like Ether-  naming some one who sits at his  right hand, "but Robert," naming  some one who sits on the opposite  side of the circle,: "is the neighbor  for me."  No one can move until the word  "me" is spoken. Then "Robert" runs  and takes Ethel's place, and Ethel  and the player in the centre run to  see which can get Rober's a vacant  chair. The player jwho is asked the  question keeps his, seat; the player  who does not get Robert's chair  stands in the centre of the circle  and asks some one else, "How do  you like'your neighbor?"  Sometimes the player may answer  "I like my neighbor, but now���������I'm  going to move!"  Then everyone has to change his  seat for one on the. opposite side of  the circle. In the scramble some  player is sure to be left without a  chair. .  THE. ROYAL STUDIO   *BB btcor������  ^ri^iJM^afftftj^^MMHlffiS^  A  A schoolboy  who  gave  a nanny-.

Smoke was noticed coming out of  the roof of the east Aving and there  was a rush for the fire hose, and  very shortly several streams were  playing'on the building and one from  the inside. The fire had gained considerable progress and many thought  the building would be completely destroyed, but under the able management of Chief Tupper and a host of  other able men, control was gained.  The building was saved, and $3,000  or $4,000 ^will cover the damages.  No cause can be assigned for the  starting'of the fire which was mostly  in ��������� the attic away from chimney or  electric wires.  It is the intention of the proprietor that as soon as the loss has been  properly adjusted to rebuild the  burned part and accommodation for  the travelling public made as snug  as ever.
