Ireland's Egg Industry.
Ninety million dozen eggs were ex
ported from Ireland lust year. Prices
ranged high, and the value of the
trade was estimated at over $75,000,

country's exports of any single manu
factured article; the cattle trade. In
deed, is the only one which can show
more imposing figures. Much of the
credit for the improvement that has
taken place in Ireland's poultry trade
is due to the department of agricul
ture. During the last 20 yeurs its In
