HUH PRICEJOR AN EfiG
At an auction sale In London tho
other day an egg of the great auk was
offered for sale. The fact had been
well advertised and quite a number of
persons Interested In these rare prizes
were present. The egg .was knocked
down for $1260, a very good price,
though eggs have been sold In London
as high as $1500. Not over seventy
of tho eggs of this extinct bird are
known to bo preserved in collections.
About twenty skeletons and eighty
skins are also among tho treasures of
These few romalns of the groat auk
arc highly prized because the bird was
annihilated by tlitf greed of hunters
nbout sixty years ago. The time was
when great numbers of this sea fowl
lived along the shores of Iceland and
Newfoundland. They fairly swarmed
during the years of the early settle
ment of Newfoundland, and for sonic
generations they west- largely used for
food by colonists and fishermen. Tho
bird was strictly nnuatlc In, Its habits,
coming ashore only to breed. It
wings were so small that It was quite
Incapable of (light.
It wns found In time, when Its downy
feathers were very desirable, nnd then
It began to be killed to supply Euro
pean markets with this new commod
ity. As It bred only In a few localities
nnd was helpless when on land. It did
not tnkc very long to exterminate the
species. Tho lait blow came when lis
most secure hiding place, a small Isl
and off the south coast of Iceland, was
destroyed by a volcanic eruption. Tho
birds removed to a spot that was morn
accessible to hunters, who soon mado
an end of them. Tbe last specimens
were taken for their skins.
According to Prof. Holder, a good
many other birds are In danger of ex
termination. Ho tells of deserted lo
calities in Florida where forty yean
ago birds were seen In thousands. Tho

California, which a number of years'

The gravity apparatus for cooling
dwellings. -Invented by Prof. Wllllj L.
Moore, chief of the weather bureau,
patents for which were recently t?cur
ed, has been placed on public exhibi
tion nt Washington, says a dispatch to
the New York Sun. The machine looks
like n cylinder stove, nnd tin Inventor
snys will In time como to be cnnslderJ
ns essential to tho comfort of n dwell
ing In summer as heating apparatus In
winter. Prof. Moore says that Iho cost
of cooling a given space with his ma
chine Is approximately this same as
that ot heating the -.amo space by
means ot a stove or furnace. Ucsldes
this, tho different uses to which the
machine may bo put are unlimited, Its
expects It to prove of great value to
hospitals, particularly for reducing the
temperature of wards In which fever
patients are confined, and In addition
to Its use for cooling residences and
hotels he says It solves the problem
of Individual cold storage. Prof,
Mooro's Invention, In addition to reduc
ing temperature. waBhcsclcanses nnd
renders tho air dry and healthful. Hot
air, tilled with dust, Is taken into the
machine at a temperature of nearly
100 degrees and expelled almost In
stantly at a temperature ot 30 degrees
and with Its relative humidity lessened
by more than half. The machine oper
ates, as Its name Implies, on tho prin
ciple of gravity. That Is, It makes line
of tho dlffercuco In weight between air
nt n high and nt a low temperature, it
Is, moreover, automatic. It requires nu
motive power, nnd Is self-adjusting.
