SELLING EGGS BY WEIGHT.
Buying by the Do/en Neither Econo?
mic Nor Scientific.
The suggestion Is made by the North
Carolina Experiment Station that it
would bo far more rational to sell eirrrs
by weight than by the rtozon. This
conclusion was reached <u'ter a long
series of experiments. In which the
weight ot eggs laid by different breeds
Of hens was carefully observed: It
was found that there was a difference
In the weigh!?fully 100 per cent, lic
tween the lightest and the heaviest.
Accordingly, on the basis of the then
prevailing prices for these egps. name
ly. 1316 cents a dozen, tho heaviest
eggs were worth at least ?0 per rent,
more on a rational basis, whereas they
sold at practically the same price. The
questions are asked, "On what other'
article of food will people be content
to pay the same price for what may
vary over 50 per cent. In value? Or
what producer of merchantable pvo
duce of any kind will consent to supply
nil the way up Io fis per cent, more
than market value and not think to
add to the standard price for addition?
al value?" The npparent objection tu
this scheme is that eggs aie used by
number and not by weight.
OTEY'S SPEECH ON TOBACCO.
Described as a Unique Contribution to
(Washing) on Post.)
It is not often that the Congressional
Record contains such a unique contri?
bution to literature ns the speech
which Representative Otey, of Virgin?
ia, delivered In the House on tobacco.
Mr. Otey represents the Lynchburg
district, In the tobacco-growing seel ion
of his Stale, and his eulogy of the weed
ought to keep him in Congress for tho
remainder of his days. He is tho espe?
cial advocate of a bill to allow a larger
ration of tobacco to the soldiers in the
army, and it was in advocacy of this
measure that he delivered his speech.
"It Is a fact."asserted Mr. Otey,"that
there Is no solace In camp life or on
shipboard like the pipe, and nothing
staves off hunger and thirst like the
chew of tobacco." All the smokers
and Chowers in the House applauded
this assertion, and then Mr. Otey went
back to ancient history. He showed
from ltd enrllo.it iltgnni^ry
co has been considered a curative.
He quoted an old practitioner of
"physlcke" who commended tobacco In
1610, and recalled the words of Har?
lot, who was one of Sir Waller Ral?
eigh's expedition In 1584, and who said
that tobacco was n notable preserver
of health. Ho quoted some linos in
praise of tobacco In Spenser's "Fueric
Queen," and was especially applauded
when he cited the case of a man who
could not breathe and whose physician
"directed him to take tobacco In fume
and little by little he recovered his for
' tn"r strength."
There was rapt attention In the
House as Mr. Otey recited the chemii.il
analysis of tobacco, with humorous
comments on chloride of potassium,
mollc. acid, silica, and ligneous matter.
The peroration of 'the eulogy on tobac?
co fs worth quoting. "His patriotism,"
said Major Otey, referring to the sol?
dier, "expires only with his life: bis
soul is enraptured with enthusiasm;
his memory Is on the w-ing, and runs
back with lightning quickness to tho
battles fought and victories won: but
he will recall that the ration of tobacco
plucked from the mind a rooted sor
i row, razed out the written troubles of
I his brnln. and with this sweet, obllvi
ous antidote cleansed the bosom of
! perilous stuff that weighed upon the
A WOMAN FOR PRESIDENT.
Carrie Ciiapman Catt Makes a Predic?
tion at St. George's Hall.
If women make as much progress In
the twentieth century ns they did In the
j nineteenth century, America Is likely
I to have a woman for President before

George's Hall. Her second and third
speeches will bo made this morning
Mrs. Catt was asked whether any
woman now living was iltied.to be
President, she replied:
"No; hcTHfiolltical life is anly begin?
ning, and years oT experience In the
avenues that the next cvntury will
open are needed to equip ner for ser?
vice In the White House."
