Tho respectful attention of the com
mercial paper published In tho inter
ests of tho butchers and grocers of this
city is directed to tho following state
ment of facts. Mr. B. J. Beer of this
city, last week bought some creamery
butter, paying 30 cents per pound for
a fancy brand. It was bought at a
grocery store, and we presume that
the store keeper is a member of tho
union. On weighing tho packages he
found they tipped tho scales at 13
ounces. An cmployo of this paper pur
chased what was supposed to bo a
pound of butter and it weighed a lit

MALE TOADS HATCH EGGS.
Reversal of Natural Proceedings Ir
Some Species. I
In the animal kingdom moro that
one species divides tho labor of Incu-
batlon, but several species of toads 1
arc known In which tho care of the i
eggs devolve upon tho males.
The Chilian or Darwin's, frog Is nne i j
of these, the male being provided
with a largo pouch covering tho en- i
tiro under part of tho body. It has
two openings Into tho mouth and the
eggs aro swallowed Into this curloin
receptacle, whoro they lomaln until
tho tndpolcs aro ready to begin nn
Tho fomulo has no pouch and once
tho eggs are laid takes no further I
Interest in lior offspring, leaving the
entire care of tho family to tho de
Wed father. j
Another species has an equally
curious mode of caring for the egg, i j
the male wrapping tho strings of new- .
laid eggs about his hind legs and re
tiring to tho seclusion of somo handy
holo until tho advent of tho tadpoles j
releases him from his confinement. i
Tho Surinam toads do not pass j
through the tadpole stage, but make
their appearance as full-fledged toads.
In this case they nro under their j
mother's care, tho male assisting her
to place tho eggs one by ono Into the
hexagonal cells upon her bank,
where they aro carried safely through
