Dec���������2nd���������  The meat market rose -slightly, the  reason for the- stronger tone being the fact that the farmers aire  holding their animals, many prefer  ring to sell at live weight direct  to the buyers at the 'farm, than to  do their, own slaughtering and  bung the meat to the market at  this'season of the, year. The sud-  ply of-meat was a ������air one, beef  and lam'b being rather scarce.  The poultry market was not  booming to-day, although a brisk  trade was done by the vendors.  The supply was not large as dur  ���������ing recent.weeks,, but, was -sufuc-.  lent to meet the /demand, at the  prices asked.  There were few spring chicken  offered and no broilers. The birds  were mostly large hens and well  bred birds for breeding purposes.  Hens and roosters mixed, for table  purposes, sol -dat from $10 to $14  a dozen. Purte bred pullets sold  ,ut   if 12. Several,  dozen    spring  chickens so i at $8. A- crate of  geese sold for $1.60 each. A number of pure herd Buff Orphingtons  were offered at $1.25 each, . but  there appeared to be little demand  for pure bred! birds and they were  unsold. One; and a half dozen of  ducks.were offered by the,-crate at  $1.60 each or separately lat $1.75  The fruit market remained quiet,  the poor'quality of the fruit offering beb/.ig  largely responsible, the  good fruit being held back for   a  rising; market.   A   few  pears were  brov.ght in, selling at 75c to $1'   a  |bo7., according to quality.   Apples  | sr,ld from  75c to  $1.25 a   box, no  l7r;mber one  stock offering.     The  * fruit inspectors held out one batch  for lacking proper markings, and  and cautioned another vendor     a-  gainst bringing to the market any  stock covered  with oyster ������������������  shell  The fruit generally was clean,   -  Potatoes .were fairly .plentiful'  on the market to-day, the prices  asked ranging from $27 to $30 a  ton, with the demand not strong.  Veg-etables   generally   were     in  good supply   and  sold  readily at  quotation   prices.   A   shipment of  fine onions  from Surhmerland    in  ...the Okanagan sold at $2.25 a sack,  w   Crated onions sold at $1.50 a   sack  Turnips   sold   at  75c   a   sack   and  carrots at $1.
