majority of the pieces containing some
foreign substance, huch as a ball rf

In South Gibson last summer a large

hen house, and ate so many eggs from
under a sitting hen that it could not
get out again through the same crack.
Next morning It was killed and cut

be unbroken and still warm, the exper

CRUELTY TO THE HEN.
A Stevens' Pclnt man took a notion
last summer to raise i'hlcken. He
purchased' an incubator, several hun
dred eggs and some full-blooded Ply
mouth rock hens. When the little
chicks were! hatched the lady of the
house boiled eggs and made hash for
them io cat. In the meantime one of
tho Plymouth reck hens had been given
a sitting of choice eggs, but at the al
lotcd time no chickens appealed. The
man was lutlier Jubilant because the
Incubator had proved itself superior to
the nutuietl mother, when the lady dis
covered that she had given the lien
Dolled eggn to hntch. Then, instead of
feeling remorso she got mad and com
pelled the poor hen to sit another three

New York, Nov. 30. The principal fac

statements of tho earnings in October of
two of tlio filtat railroad systems of tho
country namely, Pennsylvania and Dur

markably strong showing, but that of

speculation and the rumors which havo
