POWER J EGGS
GREAT NOTOH', N. J1., Jan. 1C The
conservation of natural resources has
long beon a hobby of Hugo Pebbles,
assistant tank-tender for tuo Erie at
this Important watering plnco on the
Cedar drove branch. Some folk have
tcgarded Mr. Pebbles ns peculiarly
eccentric In his contention that scien
tists havo manifested rank fatuity In'
neglecting to husband1 and employ tho
natural resources of tho egg.
"The egg." says Mr. Tebbles, "has
been overestimated as a food product,
and utterly neglected as one of the
latent power forces of nature, Dj" great
patience nnd perscrvernnco I have
demonstrated' that' n BoVen-ycar-old
egg can be utilized as the equivalent
of fourteen ounces of dynamite. With
one such' egg I have blown up the
stump of a nlnety-yearnld hickory
that resisted n charge of two pounds
of black powder.
r ''Dull, nnJ slack-wlttcd persons have
argued with' mo that only n chump of
the Idiot" species' would fottcr an egg
for seven years,' but I have proved t6
my satisfaction that It U not necessary
to fosteY'nu egg for Hevon' yenrs In or
der to acqulro a Beven-ycar-ohl egg. I

The Egg gj'rtg, Method.
Eggs grow old In cycles or circles
of tlme.i Everything connected with
time Is circular. Clocks and sun dials
are circular; so Jg'(the earth, which
turns round orlco 'every twenty-four
hours and, rotates on Its axis oncO a
year. When . Ih'e" earth has revqlved
3CS times and turned once on Its axis
It has spun for. a. year.
"Thinking this over, I says to my
self,: Why won't tho same' thins dp-
ply In the case ofn'cggT-hat Is, why

3G5 times and then;' twist It, once bn

built a llttlsj 'machlno for th,e purposo

egg a year. When I opened It It
threw mo over backward.
"Any cuss who'knows anything
about old eggs knows that theyl are
powerful. That Ijnjwflr wasn't Intend
ed' In old eggs to bo 'neglected, no
more. , than tho power of steam was.
The thing' la to harness that power
and put It to work for you. I've
worked out this theory of mine mighty
careful and It hasn't been all smooth)
"Ior Instance, I aged a pure-aa-snow
