Storage For Eggs

scarcer and dearer every week.

there not been large crowds in Hono
lulu last week prices would have drop
ped to 35 cents, in fact some eggs are
being sold at this figure. If eggs go
below 35 cents Island producers
should make arrangements to put
their eggs in cold storage until better
prices prevail. All poultrynien should
have a small rubber stamp for mark
ing their eggs with their name and
address and the word "guaranteed".
In this way it Is possible to work up a
good private trade whether eggs are
sold direct or through the Marketing

The live hog market is very poor
at the present time. Producers who
can get 10 cents a pound on the other
islands would do well to sell at home

figure In Honolulu. By selling at home
the freight and loss in weight in tran

Saturday Evening Post
That the Interior of the earth Is In
tensely hot Is proved by the Increase
In temperature observed In deep mines
and In even deeper borings. It Is prov
ed also by the emission of lava, which
is nothing more than molten rock, from
the craters of volcanoes. But the scien
tists, who maintain that the earth's In
terior Is not fluid but of the consistency
of steel, are probably correct Just the
same. Matter, when under great pres
sure, may be rigid even at enormously
high temperature. The Interior rocks
of the earth may be heated to several
thousand degrees and still be solid.
When pushed up to the surface by vol
canic action and relieved from pressure
these solid, though superheated, rocks
would become Immediately liquefied.

SAVED HIS WILD GOATS.
Emperor Maximilian Wat Lucky In
Having a Wiae Adviser.
Of the great Emperor Maximilian It
is told that once when traveling far
from home he wore so sad nn expres
sion that a courtier naked him what
affairs of stato could cnuso so much
concern. The emperor replied it was
not the stato but ibex ho was thinking
of. In his absence ho feared a certain
ponchcr, whom ho mentioned by mime,
would make havoc with the herds.
Could the courtier propose any pre
ventive? The astute person thus addressed
Immediately suggested a letter to the
poacher's wife, signed and scaled by
the imperial hand nnd offering her the
best silk dress that could be obtained
if the emperor's wild gonts were not
touched during his absence. And such,
alas, is the influence of the sex that
history hints the bribe wns more ef
fectual than "all the king's horses and
all the king's men" In the way of
forest rangers and wood reeves.
Maximilian had a preserve of these
animals In the Tyrol near the Aachen
sea nnd has left on record some Inter
esting notes and illustrations of the
sport he enjoyed among them. One pic
ture represents him In a bont on a lake
assisting to catch an Ibex in a large
net, which may have been good fun,
even If It were scarcely sportsiunnlike.
It wns Maximilian, too, who boosted
that on one occasion he killed an ibex
at 200 ynrds with a crossbow when his
companion had missed It with a gun.
Seeing thnt the "fire tubes" of the
period were nbout the slowest and
most nwkwnrd weapons any one could

END OF THE EARTH.
That Great Tragedy May Be 2,000,000
or 95,000,000 Years Away.
Scientists tell us that life on the
earth began nbout 2,000,000 years ngo.
It hns generally been accepted thnt life
will last for 05,000,000 years.
Ninety-five million years Is a fairly
long time. None of us who are alive
today need worry about what will take
place 05,000,000 years hence. Even the
most altruistic can scarcely be Inspired
by love for an inconceivably remote
But the French savants are alto
gether disturbing. Here comes one, M.
Verronet, who snys that the earth will
permanently freeze within the next
2,000,000 years nnd thnt life will van
ish. This is bringing the tragedy near
er home. We would gladly accept the
Verronet places mankind of today
about midway between the beginning
and the end. He computes thnt In the
future life will exist as long as it has
already existed. He specifies only one
forty-eighth as long a life as those who
have studied In the past
There Is only one consolation to be
derived from the Verronet reckoning.
As fnr as the Influence of today Is con
cerned 2,000,000 years Is as good as
05,000,000. In either event those who
are comfortably laboring today cannot
expect to be lovingly remembered
