There arc vacancies in the band  for . players, especially those having  musical instruments. Those of the  new comers who have band instruments are invited to join. ���������  Several engagements have been made  to spend the, day as the master musicians of the day; among these being the 12th at Abbotsford.  BECODG HIGH PRICE OFFERED  SPEND HUNDRED MILLIOXS  One hundred million dollars will be  spent this  year on  improvements to  "the Canadian'Pacific Railway system  ' according . to. an ��������� official ���������" announcement by. Sir Thomas    Shauglmessy.  This will mark a record in expenditure for the C. :P. R< and the figures arouse all the mare surprise ow  irig  to   the geaeral  tightness   of  the  money market this year.  Twenty-five cents per fish  will   be  thi'  starling   price  canners   will   pay  fishermen for sockcyes int the season  opening on Monday.

Last year the opening price was 25  cents which  advancd     to  45     cents  near lhe close of the seasson.     The  price oi'25 cents as the  opening price  ir/'bhe year of a* big run1 is a record  but as prices haveincreascd considerably in .every oilier commodity, it is  jusl what was expected.

I found on tho mantel a heavy brass  candlestick, and with it In my hand I  stepped Into the gloom of the hallway  and felt my way to the stairs. I had  kicked off my shoes, a fact 1 regretted  J titer. I went Into the library, which  was benenth my room, but the sounds  at the window had ceased.

I stood in the middle of the,room, with one band (irmly  clutching my candlestick.  But the window refused to move.  The burglar seemed to have no proper  tools. He got somethiug under the  sash, but it snapped, and through tin  heavy plate glass I' could hear bin  swearing.

' The earth oh its journcj  aroound tho sun, is approaching a  swarm of meteors along hoso path  they will proecd for some time to  come These' mefceoors ar? very much  scattered along their orbit, so that  the b'cautifol sight ot a meteor show  is  not  likely   to  be  seen. But  t  they aro moving in  thoy are moving  in the wrong direction Lo that; of the  earth, which fact will result in their  sweeping with great speed across Husky,  and    leaving   long and  strange,  streaks of light trailing after them  Tdcy will emanate from Pegasus. Meteors range in size from a man's or  woman's, hand  Lo  weights of many  tons.   As they journey through space  they often collide with the earth, especially when the gravitation of the  laLter drags them from their path to  wards her.   As 'they sweep throughout atmosphere,, friction causes them  to become white hot, when they can  be seen,  after which they  disappear  in a vapor, which in its turn, settles  down   upon oha land     in a        fine.  dust.  cal tank.

So far ��������� reports .from all over .the  north-west have been most, encouraging and it looks as though the west  "will have a 'bumper crop this year.

The  chief  product  affected  in,  of course,  lumber.

The berries from Lyndon  Wash., brouht. Lhe prices down to  $2.55 a crate retail and to $2.00 at  wholesale. Single boxes were selling  for 1.5 cents or two* for a quarter.  An opposition fish market had a  stall'pn-the market for the  Lime,in.eleven years.  Very few vegetables appeared, the  only ones to be seen were poatoes  at $10 a ton with rhubarb at'10 lbs  for 25 cents. Spring onions were 1-  so to be. seen at 5 cents a bunch. A  few cut carnations at 40 cents appeared along '.with potted nasturtium  and geraniums, ech at "25 cents a pot  Other   flowers at -5 cents a bunch.  Herring at 3 pounds for 25 cents  appeartcd for the first' time in four  weeks were sold. Veal as also in  large quantities.  A number of squabs were to be  seen and .were quoted'.at 70 cents a  pair. Large ones fetched from SG  to $8 per dozen', spring chickens ��������� at  $9  and broilers  from  $3' to  $4.50.

Vancouver's     pavements  arc largely of the same material.   82  per cent, of the new* paving iii  Minneapolis is wood-block and Saskatoon  and  other western  towns are giving  the wood-block paving the preierence  Best results are obtained from rec-  Langular-shaped blocks cut' from sou-'  thorn .or Norway pine which arc thoroughly seasoned and creosoted.   This  latter   process  not. only     lengthens  the life of the wood but reduces its  absorptivec  cpacfty  for  water,   thus  preventing the lengthening of the fi- .  bres   and reducing  its tendency   to  buckle   The most approvedmethod of  laying th s pavement laid in' London  New  York aad  otherlarge  cities,  is  and  first  make   a  concrete . foundation    four    or   six    inches, thick  on  which :is laid a thin layer of  sand,  or better still, of moist Portland cement, into\ which1, the bjlocks are closely  set/  The blocks'- are from  five to nine  inches,in depth and must be-free,of  defects.   Care must be taken to place  them with the grain perpendicular to  the road bed.- If ��������� laid-.-with-the long  edges at right angles to the enrb the  joints are > apt to   become' "worn, by  the calks on the horses' shoes, so to  prevent this provide for possible expansion.   The. joints  are usually filled with ground cement, and the sur- I  face ' of - the paving is then covered  with a thin dressing ot coarse sand  which   'beds  into the  pores of    the  blocks and roughens them  NOTES VQR NOVICES  ment work. The district is rapidly  coming to the front as one of the.  most important of the coa-st centres  The demand for this important pro  duct always exceeds the supply, and  in consequence mills are kept- running night and day.  Agriculture also comes in for its  share of increased trade.Payrolls in  ��������� the lumber and'other industries increase and the population in coast  difetrif.ts therefore increases. The  natural result is that there is a larger demand for the agricultural products.  The Paciic coast is as much interested as anyone in the crop prospects of the northwest and the progress of the season will be watched  here with interest. ���������';������������������  ��������� '������������������*       ,���������������������������-'  The municipality of Vernon has tes  ted a six-ylinder 80-horse power Sea  grave combination chemical and hose  fire  automobile^ carrying  1600   feet  a 2������ inch hose and a 40-gallon chemi  Eggs, retail, dozen -. 30c to 35c  Eggs, wholesale  25c to 28c  Eggs, duck, per dozen 35c to* 40c  Butter, retail, per lb 35c to 40c  Honey, per comb ..!.. 25c  Wholesale   Meat  Pork, per lb ;. 13c to 13%c  Lamb, per lb : 12%'c  Mutton, per lb 12y2c to 13c  Veal, per lb \ 14c to 16c  Retail  Meats  Beef, best rib roasts'. 20c to 22c  Beef, loin  26c to 27c  Beef, short loin  28c  Beef,   round  steak   20c to 25c  Boiling beef  14C  Beef, pot roast 18c  Pork 20 to 25c  Mutton 20c to 22V2c  Sugar cured corned pork ...20c  Home-made pork sausage... 15c to 20c  Salted pigs' head, lb...... 8c  Pickled pigs' teet, per lb. 8c  Pickled pigs' shanks, lb 10rj  Sugar cured hogs' heads, lb ",c  Sugar cured corned beef, lb. ,15C  Pure  lard ................15c to. 16c  Sugar cured bacon '. _...20c  Spring lamb, fore qr.  ......23c to 25c  Spring lamb, hind qr. 30c to 35c  Flowers  Treat your fowls veil.
