Esgs took another jump during: the last seven days, the top price now be ing 60 cents, though Western eggs can be had from 40 to 40 cents. Dealers say that every advance above 60 cents will cause a marked falling off of trade, and lor that reason do not expect the price to climb much further. Butter, which lor several weeks held steady at 40 rents, now .sells as high as 45 cents for the best grade, with medium quality at from S3 to -SO cents. rruits and vegetables, are still plenti ful, and the supplj biis fair to hold out all wintei.

Hobby riding is beneficial to adults and children alike, says the principal of the Business High School. It teaches its devotees to specialize, and to discover latent talents; it supplies in many cases a pleasant relaxation from routine duties, and at the same time may be productive of a useful avocation. One-half of the men in his acquaintance have hobbies, says Mr. Davis, one of whose hobbies is detecting the hobbies of his friends. By KENDRICK SCQFIELD. There is nothing like a daily canter upon the back of an interesting hobby for the tired business or professional man. Neither is the hobby as an edu cational aid to be despised. As a basis from which a useful avocation may be developed, it is an important institution, and parents should encourage their chil dren in the pursuit of some particular field of interest. So says Allan Davis, principal of the Business High School and champion cf the long-derided hobby. In it he sees possibilities not only of recreation and relaxation for the brain-fag victim, but a source from which may flow an in creased individuality for those who follow its lure, and in the cause of young children, an emphasis upon the necessity of specializing through life. Mr. Davis does not prescribe any par ticular hobbies as being more bene ficial than others. He himself chances, outside of school hours, to be abso lutely absorbed in processes of color printing and photogravure, a develop ment, he declares, of a youthful love for photography. So, whether the hobby in question be the small boy's collection of postage stamps, birds' eggs, or butterflies, or an adult prede liction for the acquisition of auto graphs, old prints, period china, or any of the million and one articles which can and have been made the subject of hobbles, he finds them all good. Detects Others' Hobbies. Aside from his interest in pnoto lithographing processes. Principal Da vis chief hobby is detecting hobbies in other folks. In this way he has come to tho con clusion that at least half of the men he knows are addicted to hobby rid ing; and in almost every caso he says the "pet ideas" of these men might with very little trouble be turned to useful as well as merely informativo avocations. In discussing the prevalence and value of hobbles, Mr. Davis says: A hobby Is fundamentally a speci alty. And when a man specializes ho is simply continuing his educa tion. He should, of course, select something different from the daily tasks by which he earns Wb liveli hood, in order to obtain the benefits of diversion and make his hobby more of a recreation than a task. I cannot begin to estimate the pleasure I have gotten out of the study of photollthographlng and color printing processes. Perhaps I may never put the information I possess to practical use. Perhaps, again. I may. But whether I do or not, it has been an interest entire ly apart from my daily routine, ana through pursuing it. I have acquir- ; .Vl C to "-- - - "- w c-- Hobbles in children present a nuie different aspect. A man's fads may be transformed Into useful avoca tions. A boy's or a girl s may be comr useful vocations. A few years ago one of thp youn.. er boys of the Bus.ness H'gh School became interested in printing. His parents gave him a small nress. At first he printed cards. One yeai later h" was publishing a small. . single sheet neighborhood newspa per. Today he graduated not long ago he has established himself in this c!ty as a commercial printer. Find Hidden Talent. The greatest thing in modern edu cation is the development of the in dividual, lyebs attention .should be paid to courses which treat children as though they all were exactly alike to the last detail, and more fsgy SXGttnnham (&. if The Mammoth Cloak and 316 Seventh Street Opposite V Mi Li jmmvS stress should be laid upon studies likely to develop specialists. To take a child into a school and cram him full of the details of a general course, regardless of what His own individuality may have fitted him for, is not enough. Every school should endeavor to discover the hidden talents of every pupil, and I know of no better in dication, in many Instances, than the hobbles of the children. I have already discovered about thirty-five children in the Business High School who aro possessed of hobbies which might be made useful vocations. Mr. Davis realizes that, beyond a cer tain length, tho public schools at pres ent can do little more than encourage the children in developing individual talents and interests, and, because of this, he is strongly in favor of the va rious school clubs which are scattered through tho high schools of Washing ton. The music clubs, amateur dramatic organizations, as well as literary and elocution and debating societies are among the unofficial school societies of which Mr. Davis approves, seeing in them opportunities for the development of the individual talents of every pupil.
