HARRISON & LAMOND'GET  "     $55,000 PAVING AWARD  The Provincial Public Works Department has awarded the contract for  the paving of No. .5 Road leading out  to Woodward's Landing, to the firm of  Harrison & Lammond, 501 Pacific  Building, Vancouver.. The distance to  be paved amounts to 1.90 miles and  the cost,'according to the terms of the  contract, will involve an outlay .to the  government-of about $55,0.00.  It is expected that as soon as the  present contract is completed on No.  5 Road that a contract will be let for  the intervening space to No. 9 Road.  Tlfis will assure a completely paved  highway aH the way from Woodward's  Landing to Vancouver. This will not  only prove one of the most popular  driveways on the lower Mainland but  will also greatly facilitate the quick  transport of produce from tlie fertile  tributary south of Ladner.  Messrs. Harrjson & Lammond intend to rush work on the paving of  this section so as to take advantage of  the fine weather and also to be in a  position to handle further contemplated road contracts.

Four  iwallB thrown together like a dry goods  "ibcor are far from, being.an ornament to  private, .estate, and  especially if  -exterior finish does  not harmon-  ■JiMfi with the house.,. If the size of the  property   permits^, it. is   advisable   to  iMpre the 5 garage 1|at vsl. 'fair  distance  2trom the house, and, of-such-'an archi-  ^tectnnl character as'to blend harmo-  aidosly with' it.   ^'nrepr.oqf garage is  aweterablei' but^npt;'ajways necess.ary.*  ■^*e t-uilding and its .equipment should  ibe of ^ood quality, 'and it is well to re-  .'ntember that a good arcfiitect and con-  ^tractor are usually'an-economy.  Although one may not now have any  •expectations of^posf-esfsing more than  one car, it is .advisable to look into  the future, arid to i-yovide space' fr a  -second or even for a third. This\extra  «pfice adds comparatively little to the  :cost.and is very .frequently desirable  for the housing of-a visitor's car, and  . "for other purposes. In many instances  the additional space may be rented out  nto a. xieighbor.  Important items of garage comfort  ■and convenience are-: A work bench;  * pit to enable.you .to get under the  car for cleaning and repairs; a gasolene tank outside with pipe and pump  inside; running water, an da conveniently placed sink •-••a drain in concrete  CAWSTON— Work has been com-r  menced on'.the construction of the  .Great-; Northern platform, the heavy  timbers being-placed in position ready  for filling with shale.

Hodgson, King & Marble, in or-,  der to clear up the vexed question of  whether contractors and master builders are classed as manufacturers or  wholesalers, and as such .would be required to charge 1 per cent, on all accounts;^ sent a wire direct to R. W.  Breadner, commissione/ of. taxa'tionVat  Ottawa, asking for a definite statement, on. these vexed questions. ^The  following reply was received from  Geo. D. Taylor, assistant commissioner: * :. .'  .."Master builders -and; contractors  technically speaking are manufacturers, but as their sales' are made to  users.they are actually retailers, therefor the .sales tax. of ■!• per cent; -does  not apply in such cases.
