OUR DAILY BREAD.
What men in the street knows tf

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.

the present fashionable ostrich
feather, although it is not so tightly
curled as tho olJ fashioned plume
looks even more bedraggled and for
lorn when it ia out of curl than tht
old one did. 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

of the regulation ostrich feather.
There is only one tl.ing ta do i!

trimming ia removed put it, if pos

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

If necessary go over some of the feath
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.

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

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."

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

and must bo marketed at greatly re

on the way to market, they should be

Eggs should be gathered often and

first opportunity for marketing.
