Iyyciy morning '1' old Irish woman
gets up before the sun does. Sho goes
out in her littlo box of a barn, among her
cackling, crowing brood of whlto
chickens nnd gathers up tho eggs thoy
have laid for her during the night.
Small, very whlto eggs they are, just tho
size for an egg flip, which is easily
spoiled by too largo nn egg,
Sho puts them cnrofully Into a basket.
eight or ten dozen of them, and after
scattering a liberal breakfast of corn on
tho ground for her chickens, thnt blio is
as fond ot as a mother of her children,
tho old Irish woman makes a frugal
breakfast o'f eggs and bacon nnd stnrts
for a thrco miles' walk to tlto city just
about tho time you and I aro getting up.
She has her Tegular customers nnd she
Svnuld have twice as many If alio had
twice as many eggs. For tho barkeep
eis like to buy her littlo white eggs on
account ot their size. A drink that is
Increasing in popularity is a glass of
whisky with nn egg in it that people
who think they are troubled with dys
pepsia, swallow at a gulp. IJut tho egg
must bo fresh and small," for a big egg Is
too much for a single mouthful. Sho
gets llvo or ten cents moro a dozen for
her eggs than tho market price is, and
sho Is contemplating buying a lot adjoin
ing tho one she now lives on, so that sho
can keep moiu chickens.
There Is a smart Italian whitehead liko

Old Antonio, or "Tony." as tho bar

pecially line bunch of bananas, or a
dozen pineapples that strike his fancy,
ho buys them, loads them Into his shaky
wagOu, and peddles them from .saloon to
saloon. He buys only the finest fruit ho
can fiud, nud lots of the saloons wait for
him to lay in their daily stock of fruit.
T)io barokeepcrs always buy these
things themselves and they always aim
to get tho best the market alTords. That
is why you never bee such fruit on your
table as you do In tho saloons.

Colored nnd Whlto Schools,
At ft meeting of tho School Donrd last
night tho question of consolidating tho
whlto nnd colored schools under ono su
perintendent was brought up by a re
port from tho Committee on High
nnd Normal Pchools Tho commit
too was inclined to tho opinion thnt n
union of Iho schools under ono respon
sible head would be highly benollctnl to
tho colored schools, "provided, Bitch a
union could bo elfcctctl with tho cordial
concurrence of all clnsscs of citizens in
terested in tho matter and nffected by It.
"Such a union," the report stated, "has
existed between tho whlto and colored
schools of tho Sixth division with highly
benollclnl results to tho colored schools.
Tho committee was not Inclined
to recommend the .'union becauso tho
character of their olllccs obligated
them to consult tho wishes of the people,
nnd further, in view of tho fact that tho
good-will of parents is a fnctor in the
clllcloncy nnd success of tho schools, "of
oven greater importance than thoso
which, under other conditions, It is bo
llovcd, would unqhestlonnbly result."
The report was adopted.
Teacher's certificates wero Issued ns fol
lows: Second class, to Isabel Haslup.
First class, to Hanson Lemon. Slary E.
Wood, Alico E.' Haslup, ICallo Seller-
mcrhorn nnd Albert li. bhocmakcr.
