OUR DAILY BREAD.
What men in the street knows tf cares anything ebcut valency?- Or perceives in, let ub say, the allotroylc modifications of sulphur an analogy . to anything of practical Interest to him? Vet tbeso things havo much to do with our daily bread, and many figure largely In tho settlement of some barkers' strike. This Professor Katz of Amsterdam In studying the question of what cfiemists call valency, has been investigating the influence of temperatura upon chemical reac tions, say the New York Tribune. He - finds that the fresh bread which most - men prize and the stale bread which only some dyspetics tolerate are simply modifications of the same sub stance, comparable with tho afore said ollotroplc modifications of sul phur. Hut what causes tho change? Nothing but tho change of tempera ture. If bread Is kept at a high tem perature It remains unchanged. Or If It is immediately reduced to a very low temperature and la kept there, the chemical changes are so alow and sliiit as to Le negligible ft la tlifre- ' fore proposed in Holland to utilize this - discovery through the establishment of larj;e storage warehouses, either hot or cold, in which reserves of bread ; shall ba accumulated and kept per petually fresh, for use In case of such emergencies as a general strike : of bakers or a temporary scarcity of l supplies of grain. ; A member of the English aristoc- racy who has adopted the ttage as u duneer, says she bus done eo because Ehe needs the money. Tills is refresh - lug. She might have said that she did It In the cause of the uplift of art, or because oho wearied of the - empty life of the- leisure class and i wanted a career, or that ehe desired ; to blazon the way for her suffering ; sisters. Hut to work because she needs tho money Is an explanation of such genuine heart Interest .a to be i popular at once. Rulers of Greece havo had on easy time since that country threw ciT the yoke of tho sultan, 00 years ago. At the outset Greece tried n president Capodistrla who was soon assassinat ed. Then Otho of Pavaria was choac& king, but, after a stormy time, was forced to abdicate. After that the ..crown 'went begging for a while. The duke of Edinburg und the earl of Der by both refused it, and it was common talk that "Mr. Gladstone could have had it by tho lifting cf an eyelid." Dr. Cnrrell, the great surgeon, de clares that brain operations are more Jlfilcult than those on the heart. Of course. Just think of the senseless -"nothings young men pour Into girls' eartB.

Yet fogs and mists 01 rains are as frequent as ever, and os--trleh feathers are now worn at all times of tho day at 1 nljrlt, regardless of tho weather. Plum-tis feathers were put forward to fill tho role of a feather which moisture would not change, but they do not take tfc-j place of the regulation ostrich feather. There is only one tl.ing ta do i! you wear ostrich feather, and that is to learn how to curl them. It is as good a3 impossible to Bend a feather to the professional cleaner to be curled every time there is a 6ummcr shower, . -When the moist hat with feather trimming ia removed put it, if pos sible, near a fire. Heat often restores a good deal of the lost curl. When this ia not possible let the feather dry thoroughly and then recurl it with a nail file, the blunt edge of a knife or some other steel or silver blade which ia not sharp. Work with one or two of the fronds of the feather at a liino. Catch them between the thumb and tho blade near the stem of the feather and slowly and iirmly draw the thumb and the blado along the fronds to the edge. If necessary go over some of the feath ers twice. It is surprising how rapidly this curling can be done; and if it is care fully done after a little practice the feather will look quite as well as if it had been curled by a professional.

In Handling, Marketing and Shlppinj ; Thsy Should Nat Be Exposed to ; Draughts and. Should Bo Properly Protected. ' (By N. E. CHAPMAN.) The common causes of loss may be classed under - several heads: Small eggs, dirty eggs, breakage, shrunken and rotten eggs, moldy and flavored eggs. Eggs must weigh two ounces or over to be classed as No. 1. Light er eggs should be consumed on the farm, rather than be sold at a re duced price. Like eggs too small, eggs abnormally large or misshaped should be used at home, for such will be easily crushed in the case, and are always classed as "seconds." About five eggs out of each hun dred marketed are classed as "dir Out of Every Dozen Eggs That Leave the Farm, but Ten Are Fit to Ba Delivered to Customer. ties." These are stained, smeared, muddy, or covered with filth. The odor of whatever soils the egg' will soon penetrate the shell and flavor the contents. Market eggs should never be washed, as they take odors more rapidly and soon are stale. Eggs may be washed, hewever, for use at home. Egg3 carried to market in bran are generally classed as "dir ties." Tho bran adheres to the shell, and is difficult to remove. It is estimated that eight per cent of the eggs are broken in moving from producer to consumer. Check ed, dented or leaking eggs soon sour, and must bo marketed at greatly re duced prices. If checked or broken on the way to market, they should be taken home for use in the family. Eggs should be gathered often and kept-in a cool, dry place until the first opportunity for marketing. Broody hens sljould ba taken from the nests at once, and confined by themselves, unless needed for hatch ing purposes. After the hatching sea son Is over, all roosters should be sold or confined, and not allowed to run. with the laying flock during the summer. Hens will lay mora eggs, and be in better health without the male birds. Infertile eggs are far su perior for preserving, shipping and storing. . Sixty-five per cent of the contents of a fresh egg is water; and because of a porous shell this evaporates rap idly under most conditions, resulting In loss of weight and value. As soon as the newly-laid egg cools, an air cell appears, which increases in size aa the contents shrink from evapora tion. Shrunken eggs may be detect ed by "candling," or by gently shak ing when held to the ear. When the "gurgio" of the contents is distinct, the egg is questionable. The mem brano of such egs is often ruptured in handling and shipping, resulting in "frothy", eggs, of poor Quality. In tho summer, eggs should receive tho same care and consideration as sweet milk and cream, and bo marketed daily, if possible. They should not be exposed to draughts of wr.rm air, Have Only Uniform, Standard-Bred, Lcying Stock. and should be protected from the rays of the sun and moisture, in handling, marketing and shipping. Moisture is the main cause of rot ten eggs. Nesta on the ground or in wet straw, together with damp cel lars and moist "fillers" in egg cases, are mainly responsible for this con dition. A fresh egg will absorb odors as rapidly aa fresh milk. Musttuess or moldy growth in egg cases or fillers will taint the egg and lower its quality. Eggs should not bo stored in musty cellars, or in rooms with fruit, vegetables or fish. The chickens should never be allow ed to drink filthy water, be fed musty grain or strong-flavored vegetables, as onions and garlic, nor given access to decaying meat or substances that will flavor the product and Impair its quality. ; Cuttli9 Cowpeas. Cowpeas may ba cut with the mow er, and after getting at least a full day's sun the vines are raked up and generally He another day in the wind row. Tbey are then bunched up In small bunches and after another day or two put li'to larger bunches and let stand as long as weather permits, when they are drawn to the barn. 00 rSPP I L- 1 u M i 7c i&flm wi Pioche Meat Company Home Made Boglonas and Sausage !
