Effgrs a» Food.
Eggs, at average prices, are among the
cheapest and most nutritious articles of diet.
Like milk, an egg is a complete food itself,
containing everything necessary for the de
velopement of a perfect
fest from the fact that a chick is formed
from it. It seems a miste^y how muscles,
bones, feathers and everything that a chick
requre8 lor its perfect developement
made fro r. the yolk and white of an egg; but
such is the fact, and it shows how complete
a food an egg is. It is also easily digested if
not damaged in cooking. Indeed, there is
more concentrated and nourishing food
than eggs. The albumen, oil and saline
matter, are, as ;n milk, in the right propor
tion for sustaining animal life. Two
three boiled eggs, w.tu the addition of a slice
or two of toast, will make a breakfast suffi
cient for a man, and good enough for a
king.
According to Dr. E .ward Smith, in his
treatise on "Food," an egg weighing
ounce and three-quarteis contains 120 grains
of carbon, and seventeen and three-quarters
grains of n. trogen, or 15.25 per cent, of car
bon and two per cent, of nitrogen. The
value of one pound of eggs, as food for
tainiug the active forces of the body, is to
the value of one pound ol lean beef,
to 900. As a flesh producer,
eggs is about equal to one pound of beef.
A hen may be consider, d to consume one
bushel of corn yearly, and to lay ten dozen
or fifteen pounds of eggs. That is to say
that three and one-tentli pounds of chemistry
will produce, when feed to a hen, five
sixths of a pound of eggs, but ftvesixths of a
pound of pork requires about five pounds o*
for its production. Taking into ac
count the nutriment in each and the

pork is about three times as costly a food
the eggs, while it is certainly less healthful.
