Where, oh, where, Js the egg- of our
boyhood; the eggs the old speckled Jien
would hang around the barnyard tell
ing about all the rest' of the morning
after she had laid it, warm and pink in
the straw nest under old Boss's man

on that beautiful morning in March, the

Frek Eggs in -El Paso.
This does not refer to El Paso eggs.
Certainly it does not. El Paso eggs
are young and sprightly, the kind that
mother used to make up into pound
cakes and tarts that were as good eat
ing before they were baked as after,
especially when the crock scraping was
allowed and an old cooking spoon and
a seat --on the back steps furnished the
ingredients of the fun. Not a cold stor
age egg is to be bought in El Paso.
That is what the kitchen haberdashers
who furnish food for the El Paso house
We get Kansas eggs from Hillsboro,
Kansas, shipped in refrigerator cars
but not cold storage hen fruit no sir,
emphatically no; also we get ranch
eggs stamped and dated with tha real
date of birth on the shell, and that
date a recent one at that. Then there
are the Tularosa e&gs, done up in nifty
cartons and also stamped and dated.
inese are what tne local rood supply
houses are furnishing El Paso and no
cold storage esss can be purchased at
any price; the dealers say you can't and
Price! "Who said anything about the
price? "Well, if you must know the
prices are aviationary, as Gus Wine
burg said, in the "Alaskan." Paulhan
1n his aeroplane is a mere road runner
in comparison to the flight the tags on
the ess counter of the grocery and
meat markets have taken. But the
F price now is not so bad as a short while
ago. Kansas eggs are selling for 40
cents on foot, recandled before deliv
ery. This is the Sunflower variety of
hen breakfast food, the same Kansas
where the roosters were alleged to have
done the women chickens's work and
laid eggs as big as brewery casks.
Ranch eggs no, Terese, not "rank
esss are selling for from 45 cents up,
mostly up, while Tularo?a eggs are of
fered to the local trade at 55 cents.
These have been higher Tut Mrs. Hen
has arisen to meet the demand most
beautifully and the price has gone
down a notch or two. Tularosa eggs
were 90c for a while, so tne chop is big
to 55 cents.

Even at 55 cents, eggs are considered
rather "steep" by many and the sally
or a certain Indiana hoosier appeals: He
says: "They are demanding a deposit In
advance on all ess orders at the new
Palace huttel nowadays."
But the grocers can't help it; the hen
is to blame. Still the question is, if
one dozen eggs cost 55 cents, how many
can a man on a salary afford each
week? The class in high finance will
please stand up.

Millionaire Brakeman Bunt-
ing Orders a ew One,
Made of Steel1.
Not yet, not coon, is John Bunting,
the millionaire brakeman or million
aire mall clerk, "whichever you prefer,
to travel in an ordinary Pullman coach
with the conJmon folks. Not that John
thinks he is better than the rest of
us but he has grown o accustomed to
having a private car in which to flit
from place to place that he just cannot
think of getting along without one. In
short he has the private car mania
worse than the Saturday Evening Post
said hft had. His private palace on
trucks, 'the Elfleda, was recently side
swiped down in Mexico, where the rail
roaders play mighty rough with pri
vate cars. Having tired of that par
ticular plaything, Bunting sold it to the
Colorado & Wyoming railroad and it
is to have the lowly task of carrying
a commonplace general manager over
the C. & W. line Instead of being a free
lance in the private car world and flit
ting from Tehuantepec to Toronto as
the fancy free owner decided.
Millionaire Bunting is to have a new
private car. He has gone to Chicago
and from Chicago he will go to Pull
man, 111., where the red plush sleeping
cars and incidentally several millions
of dollars a year are made in the car
works of the man who invented undi
gestible names for sleeping cars. The
new car is to be a thing of beauty and
of joy for as long as Bunting cares
to have it around. It is to be all ateel,
fitted with speedometers, electric
lights, bath tub and all of the con
veniences and inconveniences of the
modern palace car.
Before the Elfleda was sold and
sent north, Bunting stripped it of all
the mechanical appliances in which he
took such a delight. These were left
in the private office of Harry Allen,
the only car inspector in the world
having a private car just like his mil
lionaire friend only Harry's has a side
door entrance. Bunting expects to
come rolling through here next month
resplendent in a new private car in
which he expects to entertain his
friends, the car whackers, while he is
in El Paso.
Have Yoted to Strike in
Mexico Unless Demands
Of the 1000 American conductors and
engineers of the National Railways of
Mexico, 98 percent have voted to
strike unless their demands are grant
ed, say reports from Mexico City. Still
so far there has been no walkout. All
Although the Americans are wisely
working quietly, It is an open secret
that union officials are still negotiat
ing with company managers, and that
there is hope of an amicable settle
ment. Vice president E. P. Curtlss, of
the conductors' order, and vice presi
dent Corrigan, of the engineers or
ganization, are doing the fine work.
In El Paso there has been no evi
dence of an exodus, no National Rail
way men having passed through this
city. If the walkout occurs it will
come suddenly, it is hinted. The large
majority is favoring the strike and
"will make the action prompt and thor
ough, at least.
