Buyers in large numbers  turned out to obtain their supplies  of Christmas- turkeys and (poultry  of all kinds. Mr. Mackenzie, market clerk, stated that: in his opinion the number ol buyers .present  last Friday exceeded any other  since the inception :of the market  in New Westminster.  The offerings in all lines-were  good and the buying, was brisk.  This was particulary so in the  poultry and meat departments,  where local householders .and; restaurant proprietors were prominent. Vancouver buyers were also  conspicuous but there was ' not  such a large wholesale business  done in turkeys as last week.  Turkeys were offered alt 33 and  35 cents a pound live weighty and  at 40 cents a p'oimd dressled, geese  at 20 and 23 cents a pound, live  weight., and at 27 arid 30 cents a  pound dresse. Chickens, dressed,  brought 25 to 30 cents a pound and  live weight, 18 to. 20 cents a pound  Ducks were offered at 19 to 20  cents a pound. These prices prevailed throughout the market although towards the close some  dealers dropped  a few points.  Conditions in the egg market  prevail about the same as fest .  week. The demand,was steadybut  did not show an increase. Vendor's  obtained from 50 cents ad bzen  retail and from.; 40 to 45 cents a  dozen wholesale. Butter was offered at 40 cents a pound.  The meat department was also  a busy scene, local householder "being the chief buyers dn this section.  Pork took a drop in price ,of two  cents a pound, this commodity being offered at 12 to 13 cents a  pound, wholesale. Lamb and mutton wacs offered at 12 to 12& cents  a pound wholesale.  As  in   Other   departments,   bid  ding was brisk on the auction market this Friday, a large number of  animus going at very goY-od prices.  The first and: the highest bid  was for a six, year old mare which  went at $210, it's mate 'being bid .at  $120 but was not -sold at this price;.  Mr. Bray's fine pacer' was,sold -at  a great sacrifice, the price bid for  it beang $160.

It is looked  upon as a nuisance because Christmas-  tide brings with It a necessary increase  of expenditure in the form of tips and  presents.

Preparations were made months beforehand.  Geese and turkeys were fattened, plum  puddings * were made, prospective  guests were borne in mind,' and the  girls of the'home fell to thinking of  new so-hemes for decorations. Now,  could anything be more delightful than  making Christmas plans at least-two"  months beforehand so as to" keep'the  festive season right" royally?' All this  sort of thing kept the family together,  for* when the winter evenings brought  them nearer and nearer to Christmas  day it made them see how necessary  each one was to the other^in the.way  of helping and suggesting as regards  presents for So-and-so."holly'for this  room and mistletoe for* that. Gradually it-dawned on every one- how dear  the home was to all and how still more  precious were the parents and children  to'one another. ���������  When Christmas day did come It  was a time of perfect'happiness.",harmony and satisfaction to every guest  and .every member of the family.- If  Christmas Is not-spent at home what  becomes .of, the family gathering, the  delight of" decorating, the care and  thought the happy mother has expended on the cooking "of "the dinner and.  to crown ail. the praise of the Christmas pudding, which by the consent  of one and all invariably ts"the finest  pudding 1 have-ever ��������� eaten?" No  praise./of a Christmas pudding ever  comes amiss to a "housewife's heart,  and if Christmas'Is not spent at home  the dinner'wllhfall -flat. There is no  family gathering;'*, no ..noisy, good humored chaff; and there is not that subtle,   Indefinable -something   at "work  Which -blnda.-the-family-cluacr* together;  heals up old sores,' opens -up new  friendships and wipes away all bitterness, that Is so marked a feature in a  good, homely Christmas gathering.  There have' been more reconciliations, -more '-'divided houses" brought,  together again,. more eyes made dim  through a mist" of happy tears at some  difference or misunderstanding .made  clear by a Christmas gathering at home  than at any other season or place.  Charles Dickens, the. novelist ot  Christmas, who, did more for Christmas than any one can ever guess, had  had a slight difference with Thack  eray. ��������� He met him on the steps of his  club on Christmas morning, hesitated,  then held out his hand, which Thack  eray grasped with-all the warmth of  his great heart. Both .men returned to  their family gathering at home, feeling  better and happier men.'  Without a doubt a family gathering  at this festive and joyful season knits  the bond of love and good fellowship  closer than at any other time. Old  Blights and hurts are forgotten; hard  men-of business relax and soften at  the sight of the children who many a  time have drawn out all that is best  in them after it hat*, "lain dormant for  years until they have forgotten they  had a tender side to their nature at  all. Yes, without a doubt home is the  place for Christmas. "Oh. it will be  SQ. dul.Lan_(1 uuirj-j-pre^njjjit Jiomeil-' js  often the" cry.���������Tt will oilly be dull to  those who make it so.

Tour eantuple of 'spending the festive  season will most-assuredly, instill th������  love of the yearly family gathering  into the younger generation, who will  emulate your ideas iu future years.  Posterity will be" indebted to-you for  showing how to keep tip n good old  Christmas -which''was suffering from  a slump In the twentieth century.  By' all means, then, spend Christmas  at home, decorate your house, remember the postman, the butcher, the servants and ev.en your wife's or husband's '  relatives.

Buyers in large numbers  turned out to obtain their supplies  of Christmas" turkeys and (poultry  of all kinds. IMr. MacKenzie, market clerk, stated that: in "his opinion the number of. buyers .present  last Friday exceeded any other  since the inception of the market  in New Westminster.  The offerings in, all lines-were  good and the buying, was brisk.  This was particulary so in the  poultry and meat departments,  where local householders andi restaurant proprietors were prominent. Vancouver buyers were also  conspicuous but there was not  such a large wholesale business  done in turkeys as last week.  Turkeys were offered ait 33 and  35 cents a pound live weight, and  ait 40 cents a pound dressied, geese  at 20 and 23 cents a pound, live  weight., and at 27 aiid 30 cents a  pound dresse. Chickens, dressed,  brought 25 to 30 cents a pound and  live weight, 18 to 20 cents a pound  Ducks were offered at 19 to 20  cents a pound. These prices prevailed throughout the market air  though������������������ towards-, the close some  dealers dropped  a few  points.  Conditions, in the egg market  prevail about the same as last  week.. The demand.was steady but  did not show, an increase. Vendor's  obtained from 50 cents a d bzen  re tail an d furom,; 40 to 45 cents a  dozen wholesale! Butter was offered at 40 cents a pound.  The meat department was also  a busy scene, local householder "being the chief buyers dn this section.  Pork took a drop in price of two  oents a pound, this commodity being offered at 12 to 13 cents a  pound wholesale. Lamb and mutton waca offered at 12 to 12J������ cents  a pound wholesale.  Aa in   other  departments,   bid  ding was brisk on the auction market this Friday, a large number of  anirhMs going at very goY'od prices. The first and the highest bid  was for a six, year old. mare which  went at $210, it's mate 'being bid at  $320 but was not .sold at this price:.

I '      - ]  *:  x-  >���������  ���������������  ���������������  *���������  *���������  ���������������  >��������� -te  * -k  T is the fashion nowadays, alas, to  cry down Christmas, and it is fast  becoming a "can't be bothered  with it" sort of day. It is looked  upon.as a nuisance because Christmas-  tide brings with it'a necessary increase  of expenditure in the form of tips'and  presents.  It is becoming more and more the  fashion���������fashion to ' be bothered���������to  take less notice of Christmas and spend  it away from home where, there will  be "plenty of fun."  In the'good old days spending Christmas anywhere but nt home was never  for oue -moment dreamed of. Preparations were made.months beforehand.  Geese and turkeys were fattened, plum  puddings were made, prospective  guests were borne in mind, and the  girls of the'home fell to thinking-of  new schemes for,.decorations. Now,  could anything be more delightful than  making Christmas plans at least two  months beforehand so as" to" keep/the  festive season right'royally?- All tills  sort of thing kept .the family together,  for when the winter evenings brought  them nearer and 'nearer- to Christmas  day it made them see how necessary  each one was to the other in the,way  of helping and suggesting as regards  presents for So-ahd-s'o.. holly for* this  room and mistletoe for- that. Gradually it-dawned on every one how dear  the home was to all and how still more  precious were the parents and children  to-one another.  When   Christmas  day   did  come it  was a time of perfect "happiness." harmony and satisfaction to every guest  and every "member *of'the family.    If  Christmas is not! spent;at.home what  becomes of the .family gathering, the  delight  of * decorating,   the   care - and  thought the happy mother bias expefud-'  ed on the cooking of"the dinner and.  to crown all. the praise of the Christ-'  mas  pudding." which   by   the consent  of one and all invariably is-"the finest  pudding   1    bave<;ever   eaten?"    No  praise of  a- Christmas  pudding ever I  comes amiss to a  housewife's heart. J  and if Christmas' is not spent at home  the dinner-will-/fall-flat.    There is no  family gathering;, no  noisy, good  humored chaff, and-there is not that subtle,   indefinable, something   at   work  which binds, the--family closer'together,  heals   up   old' "sores,' opens *up -new  friendships and wipes away all bitterness, that Is so marked a feature in a  good, homely Christmas gathering.  There have been more reconciliations, more "divided houses" brought  together again, ��������� more eyes made dim  through a mist'of happy tears at some  difference or misunderstanding .made  clear by a Christmas'gathering at home  than at any other season or place.  Charles Dickens, the novelist ot  Christinas, who did more for Christinas than any one can ever guess, had  had a slight difference with' Thack  eray. - He met him on the" steps of his  club on Christmas morning, hesitated,  then held out his hand,-which Thack  eray grasped with-all the warmth of  his great heart. Both men returned to  their family gathering at home, feeling  better and happier men.  Without a doubt a family gathering  at this festive and joyful season knits  the bond of love and good fellowship  closer than at' any other time. Old  slights and hurts are forgotten; hard  men of business relax and soften at  the sight of the children who many a  time have drawn out all that is best  in them after it has lain dormant for  years until they have forgotten they  had a tender side to their nature at  all. Yes, without a doubt home is the  place for Christmas. "Oh, It will be  9Q- dnIIjmd..ijninler������Sti.n_g.jit _hptjie_������.* If  often~the",cryT Tt" will ouly be cfull to  those who make It so.
