About Cgga,
1M a hen's egg only one-fifth of the
substance Is nutritious, one-ninth part
Is refuse, and the remainder.. the great
er portion, is water.
White shelled eggs ore uot quite as
good as yellow ones, for they contalu
a trifle more water and a little less fat
But your purveyor knows this and fre
quently colors his white eggs with cof
Judged by the amount of nutriment,
a goose's egg Is the most valuable.
Next In order are (lucks', guinea fowls',
hens', turkeys' and plovers^ Eggs con

the complexion.
To get the best egg you must feed
your fowl on grain, and to cook It In
the most digestible way you must not
boil the water. Heat tbe water to 180
degrees and leave, the egg in It for ten
minutes. You jvlll then digest every
morsel. But If you boll It for three
minutes no less than one-twelfth of
It will fall to be digested. Thus If you
cat two eggs boiled-for three minutes
every day you waste 'five dozen in a
year.—London Mall.
Tha Leopard and tha Pan.
One day a worthy Kulu housewife
came out from her cooking and, stand
ing on the ledge of rock at her door,
emptied a pan of boiling water Into the
rank herbage growing below. It fell,
splssh, on the back of a sleeping leop
ard, who jumped perpendicularly Into
the air as high as the roof of the hut.
What might have happened next?
Who can say? But the astonished wo
man dropped the pan with a clang up
on the rock, and .the leopard took one
leap downhill. The pan followed, and
the leopard's downward leaps became
longer and swifter as the pan bounded
after It from rock to rock.
When last seen the leopard had Just
achieved a leap of about 3S0 feet to
the very bottom of the ravine, thou
ssnds of feet below, and the panvhad
whirled about 000 feet over It on the
opposite side. The leopard/would have
eaten the old woman with pleasure,
but a pan which first scalded half the
hide off htm and then bounded clanging
in his wake from the top of the Hima
layas to the plains below was some
thing which he could not face.—Lon
don Chronicle.
A Mexican Tradition.
what's the matter? Fever?
Die, then die, then." That's the
tbe doves slug down In old Mexico
when a native has penumonla, and
almost Invariably he lies down, refuses
to swallow the medicine prescribed by
tbe physician, resigns himself to his
fate and In a few weeks he dies. The
dove, however, sings the song in Span
ish. It Is a trndtUon among the Mex
icans that once the fever accompany
ing an attack of pneumonia seizes
them It is necessarily fatal, and be
cause of tbls all medicine and all phy
sicians are refused and tbe Mexican
usually dies. The dove brings the
story of death in its weird cooing, ac
cording to the belief of the natives,
and many who have been seized with
the fever who otherwise might have
recovered have succumbed owing to
their belief In the tradition. That is
the reason, It Is said, why penumonla
Is fatal to so many Mexicans.—New
York Herald.
Knew tho Sound of Wood.
There was au urgument-on a- cricket
field In a village near Nottingham,
England, which Interrupted the game'
for some time. Tbe match was being
played between tbe local tradesmen
of the village. All went well until
the bowler, who was tbe village, con
stable, a man over six feet tall,' sent a
ball which bumped up from- the
ground and bit the village butcher,
who was batting and who was ex
ceedingly fat and perspiring freely, on
the bead. The wicket keeper, a re
markably tblu and agile man, who
was the village grocer, caught the ball
and yelled, 'Ow's that?"
"Hout!" shouted tbe" village baker,
who possessed only one eye.
"HI say now!" roared the fat butch
er, who refused to have It so. "But
hit 'It me on the 'eud."
"HI don't know where hit 'It you,"
responded the umpire, who was-the
village undertaker, "but HI knows the
sound of wood, when HI 'ears hit, so
bout you go."

"Political tricksters alwaya give
themselves away," said a congress
man. "Their methods remlud me of
tbe two men who wanted to sell their
corpses for dissection. These two men,
miserably clad, called on tbe deau of

are well on In years, and It Is clear
that we haven't much longer to live.
Would you care to purchase our bodies
for your dissecting room!'

question, a very important one. Why
do you allude to papa -as a pirate?
Surely you must havfftome good rea
son for doing so?"
"I have, Indeed!" responded George,
with a dreamy, faraway look In bis
eyes. "Pirates board people, you know,
and 1 expect your father,. If my plans
work all right, to eventually board me."
"Oh, how clever you are, George!
Do you know, I was awfully afraid
you were going to get off that ancient
chestnut about his being Buch an old
freebooter, and I'm so glad you didn't
because all the fellows 4've had have
said that, and I waa longing for some
thing new."

Piibiro Panance.
la former times persons guilty of
grievous nnd notorious offenses were
acquired to make open confession and,
further, to make satisfaction for the
scandal given by their bad example by
doing penance publicly In white sheet
in their parish church. The sheet was
used to show clearly to every one
which was the offender. The last time
that public penance was done In an
English church was on Snntlay even
ing, July 30, 1882, when a man .natned
Hartree, in tbe church of All Saints
East Clevedon, made an- open confes.
slon of immorality and promised to
perform the' penance thus Imposed on
him by the vicar. No white sheet was
used on this occasion. The last case In
which one was used appears to have
been one In St. Bridget's church, Ches
ter, In 1851, but on that occasion the
penai.ee was not public, the church
door being locked. In the previous
year, however, public penance In a
white sheet was done In a country
church In Essex, and a- similar thing
occurred In Dltton church, near Cam
bridge, In 1840.—Stray Stories.
An Unaxpactad Chock.
A man who won a'reputatlon for cool
daring and almost eccentric fearless
ness along a thousand miles of the
southwestern border wns A. L. Par
rott, at one time a sergeant In Mc
Nelly's company of Texan rangers.
One night in 1873, about six months
after Parrott left the state service, he
was sitting In a bouse In a little town
In southwest Texas playing chess with
a friend, it was a warm night, and
tbe chessboard was on a table close to
fin open window. Parrott bad the white
men. His queen was In ~a direct line
with the black king, but a black knight
was between the two pieces. It was
Parrott's taove. Suddenly there was a
sharp report outside, and a bullet whis
tled In through the window, bit tbe
black knight and buried Itself In the
wall. Parrott had been bending over
the board, and tbe bullet was evidently
Intended for his head. But for a few
seconds he did not stir. He saw the
black knight suddenly vanish. Then In
his peculiar, drawling, hesitating way
he said,
Rata on Ships.
"Are rats destructive? Well," said
a captain of a merchantman, VI once
knew them to get through £5,000 worth
of stuff lii five days.
"Japan does, an immense tradi with
China In cocoons and'the ftrst time I
carried sueh a cargo they were packed
in sacks. When we got to Hongkong
we found that the rats had discovered
thai part of a cocoon was good to pat,
and'the'bill for their hoard came to
£6,000. The shipowners' were Sued fdr
that amount but, the packing being
considered faulty, the claim was dis
allowed. It waB the first and last co
coon feast the rats had, for ever'since
Japan has packed cocoons In zinc lined
"Every time a ship gets back to Liv
erpool a rat catcher Is set to clearing
out the rats, but by tlie tlirie we li&ve
loaded up again the rodents are every
bit as numerous. In some ports we use
rat guards on Uie ropes, and the ship
is always fumigated before taking a
cargo of fruit or tea. But there *ls no

Goldsmith, "you1 must allow he treads

bunks, a cunning little kitchen and
sitting room. You wander through

Ballooning Among tho Clouda.
It has been my lot to see In arctic
regions some hundreds of thousands
of Icebergs close At hand, and I have
always believed tbem to be tbe most
beautiful objects on earth, but the
clouds of tbe. sky, close at hand, are
almost 11B beautiful. If you mount
above one of these majestic things,
swiftly overtopping one by one its
folds and wreaths, and If remembering
how high it Is you look down and see
only small green patches of earth
through holes in the cloud carpet be
low, you have a little thrill of con
ception of how lonely a man would
feel falling away down there and not
being ob* to see the spot where he
must alight, it Is a safe Uttlc thrill,
however. You know that you are not
going to fall. Such dizziness as some
persons feel In standing near great
^eights on the earth la almost un
known in ballooning.—Albert White
