GROWING VERY FAST  Tho Misfion City Telephone Company is one of Mission's home institutions and is growing very rapidly these days, the demand ..now  for phones being greater than W-  er-.before; the service all- the time  improving.  This year a franchise was granted for the Matsqui municipality.  ���������s;nce which time about twenty or  more phones have bee-n installed  with a   central at Matsqui.  There are 117 phones on this -side  of the river in fine working order  In conversation with .'the eecre-  we:*o no; on the market.  Plenty  of cut  flowers  wore   on  h:': market and found'a . ready sale  The poultry offering was hot up  to the usual standard along      Ihn  line   of  quan'.itiy.    Thc   quality   of  , the   b'rda  was   well   to   the  mark  ���������  and   the' offering   was   somewhat  more'varied than usual.   Some exceptionally fine Pekin'"''ducks wen*  offered and .among them  were    a  pair'of drakes which; wero; finally,  sold at $2.00 each. The  buyers purchasing   them   with   a   number   of  others allowed $1.75 each for these  particularb   iuis  and   uirncd   them  ovcr;again at $2.00  per  bird.  Some Houdans attracted a   considerable amount of attention as it  is seldom that that .variety of bird  is offered on the market.      These  were bought up bybreedera of fancy ������Lock at $1 each.   Aiong<.generaI  lines the prices remained exactly  ,  the same as those of last wee-k.   It  is expected there will be no partic  ular change until Christmas  week  when a   considerable advance may  be looked forward to.   The prices  '  are bound to rise just{ as soon as  the New Year arrives and breeders  are looking, for choice stock for the  coming season's breeding.
