This  was particularly noticeable in the  pork line and consequently pork rose  to 2 5 1-2 0 and in some cases 2 60  though the latter, price was not paid  by the packing -houses." -.      ��������� ..   :  'Veal was shown both in offerings  and in sales, lowering slightly -in the  medium quality but remaining the  same as last week for the choice  stuff.  The poultry market was uncertain, prices fluctuating considerably  some quotations for heavy hens running as high as 2S0 and 290, but  the average aud most general prices  ran from 200 to 27 1-20 per lb for  the heavy birds. Light hens remaining about the same as last week although in a few instances as high as  250 was paid. Springs and broilers  varied and the price depended upon  the plumpness of the bird, 250 to 280  being a medium average, though as  high as 320 was paid in some instances.  Eggs in the wholesale ring opened at 580 per dozen and closed at  CO0. There were some deals put  through for 010 per dozen, but the  dealers in the majority of cases refused to go higher than 60 0 per  dozen in wholesale lots. Sixty-live  cents per dozen was the retail price  throughout the market.  Apples of the earlier variety were  on the market in good quantities,  Red Astrachan and Yellow Transparent being prominent, prices ranging  from $1.00 per box wholesale up to  $1.5 0.  Plums also came in heavily and ^  were selling in crates at wholesale ;  prices .from 7 00 up and at retail;  prices from 2 50 per basket to 900 ;  and   $.1.00   by  the crate.    . . j  Tame blackberries, peaches, pears ;  and greengages were also on sale \  but not in very large quantities. j  'The vegetable section-and. garden j  truck'stalis were loaded down with j  all the ���������'different varieties of table \  vegetables, soiling in small quanti- j  ties at the usual 10. 16 and 250'  bundles.

The potato market was not greatly  changed from last week, but owing  to the fact that the farmers are not  digging their crop yet th3 price.,in  small quantities, by the sack, rose  to $1.75 and $2.00.

He was born in Scotland and upon coming out to this  country lived in New Westminster  for twelve,.years, where he-was engaged in the grocery business with  the firm of Parnell & Gunn.  lie then moved to Boundary  to  the  Alexander ranch    and  made  his' home  at  Silverdale,  Mission City, where he has been  PERSONALS  Bay  later  near  liv  ing for the past few years. He is  survived by his wife, three daughters and five sons. These are: Mrs.  Margaret Fltckinger, Seattle; Janet  and Bessie Gunn, at the family home  al'Silverdale; Robert, Boundary Bay  David, on overseas service; Peter  and George, living near Edmonton,  and William, with the heavy artillery in France.

That your M. C. has  made pants and vests is nothing to  his discredit.    It is necessary in this  climate that somebody make    them.  The writer followed a plow for many  a day and for years wore the callouses made by..pitch.������-;rks..and manure  forks, but I do not think'it detracts  in' the least from my efficiency in my  present business.    It is    my    experience that the man  who  works the  hardest and accomplishes the    most,  says the least and The Load  Noise  who claims the    credit:    but    Avhcn  placed in the position hir? load Noise  gets   him,  the  lack   of  ability   soon  makes   of   him   only   an   unpleasant  memory.    I haven't always    agreed  with  your  M.   C.   nor  all  his  statements' the bulletin contains, nor do  I agree with Barry that solving transportation will solve    all    differences  between buyer and seller. Those differences  will  be  solved  when   "Tho  lion and lamb lie down together". It  is the buyers business to buy as low  as he can, the seller's to sell as high.  Buyers often get together and make  a  buying price;   sellers can make a  selling price, providing    their    produce does not spoil in the meantime.  Just think back to last spring    and  rhubarb.    Transportation    had nothing to ,do with what    the    brokers  -wanted to pay.       They    wanted    to  buy low and so insure their jobbers a  good  margin.       Perfectly legitimate  business.    But where does the seller  come   in   if  he   is   obliged   to   take  whatever the buyers offer him?      In-  some matters 1 am going to-disagreo  with M. C. then Barry.    When your  M.  C.  3ays "Berries  were  the  same  when picked and packed," 1 disagree  We have noted a difference between  0:30 arrival in our warehouse    and  ten on any that were  left then. Wo  have noted  a  big difference on  any  sent out and refused by the retailer  and we havo noted a  difference between  No.  4  and  the  next  morning.  We have noted .a big difference i������ ���������������  few hours of those exposed to  liglit  like display  in  a  retailer's  window.  Again   I  disagree   in   a   degree   with  his severe asr.ailnio.nl. of the express  company for  rough . handling.   Some  rough handling to be sure,    but    it  must  bo  taken     into     consideration  that they have  very  little  time    to  make transfers, that good    help    is  hard to get and if thoy    waited    at  Cfilgay, for instance, for very careful  handling,  trains would  reach  points  in  Saskatchewan  very   late and  we,  as well as the travelling public would  put up a  howl;   we  for  loss caused  by delay in transit. It is an easy matter to lay it all on transportation. Tt  is like the old days of high prices in  the west.    Lay it on the freight we  have to pay.    I  remember my first  trip west when man put up a howl  at being charged ten cents for what  was two for five cent box of matches,  "Look at the freight we    have    to  pay"    In my opinion transportation  from  every point  of  view,  is  doing  very well and as effectively as can  be expected.      Better    transporation  you will get just when you get together in good will and  hearty cooperation  and  help  transportation.  Let me give you a few lines to think  ���������long. Your berries will arrive in tho  markets   in- good   condition   just   as  soon as you all. take the proper care  iii pickingand packing~ariu'properly'  load in cars.    There-is    no    reason  you all cannot load in the same car  no matter who you wish sent-to. You  can have a ventilator or refrigerator  placed; load it properly spaced    and'  braced.  Calgary and distibution, for  instance,   loaded  so  Calgary  can  be  taken out and distribution go on or  jvica versa, and each jobber cr other  consigness get just what is in the car  marked  to  him.    This is  no  theory  1 have seen it done years ago all up  the Atlantic   coast.    I  am  sure  the  express    company    would    welcome  such a plan.    Space will not permit  my going much into details but just  a little information on the markets.  No jobber has much advantage over  another.    One can  get as    good'   a  price as another, not much better. A  retailer will phone the houses he is  dealing  witht  and  get  each's   price  on the aticles he wants  to buy and  buy of each whatever it is the lowest on.    That he would pay us fifty  cents more than some one else, is rot  He don't do business that way; and  country  trade is  reached  about  the  same way.    Long    distance    phone,  letters and telegrams.    Care and ef-  j f iciency in handling are the only real  differences. Just for instance during  'the berry,season we devote ourselves  [mainly to that line we are the first  I to get our berries away from the cx-  !press office;  the first to get them r.o  | the trade: "We are not held up waiting  j for bananas,  oranges etc.,  either in  ���������getting away from the warehouse or  I in delivering, nor do we ever have a  I car  of   American   berries   to  sell  al  j top while jobbing off B.

There  is  no indication that the price will be  high in comparison with the prices  prevailing for other varieties of farm  produce. At tho. present time, the  best price obtainable for any quantity scorns to be about $.3;3 per ton.  While-this, of course is a iiocd deal  h'gb.er than pri:es obtaining a lew  ynars ago, it represents a iuurh  smaller advance than; that made-.in  the B.'ime period by hay ami grain  for instance.

The sports were good, particularly  tho automobile racing.  The number of people who visited  the fair was record breaking'; and  the weather was something exceptional   for  Vancouver.  About, tbe only part, that could be  eliminated would be some of the  cheap joints for the soiling of soft  drinks and a couple of other questionable chance games.
