Attention is called to the t that there are two broad uubli- dona into which eggs may be dlvld , ; thoRe from which the infant bird Jinca partly fledged and to a degree Jo to care for itself, as do chlcka of jo common hen, and those from b h the babies issue , naked and jlpless against the assaults of hunger d cold, exe pt as they are protected f their parents, as in the cane of irrows and most ol the smaller birds the air. More nutritive material Is needed j the first sort of eggs than in Ce ond, of course, because a great deal (re of the younster'a life Is devel id inside the eggs. Recording to the best information thc author, there is very little dlffer ji'e between the eggs of different ods of chickens. The color of the shell, notwithstanding a decided iinlon to the contrary, has nothing fiatever to "rio with th rnntpnta In jny experiment stations there have j n careful analyses to show that lte and brown shelled eggs have the jnc nutritive qualities, if the hens flch laid them have been equally ll fed. j'ggs are classed as among the most ritious of food stuffs. They con ;a more water than cheese, but are ire concentrated than milk or oys It is true that the flavor of ejjgs affected by the food of the hens some such degree as the flavor of k Is affected by the pasturage. That the reason way eggs that are per aly fresh may not seem fit to be jd for any other purpose than the jishing of the soles of shoes in fao- ies. pxperiments in the digestibility o! 's show. that hard boiled and fried is require 3 1-2 hours for digestion st boiled, eggs required 3 hours, jSted eggs, 2 1-4 hours, raw 3, not whipped, 2 hours and raw s, whipped, 1 1-2 hours. It has also n established ,that from 93 to 97 ?ent of an egg that is eaten is di- tl. Hard boiled eggs will almost ays produce more disturbance of even tenor of the way of the di- Hve organs than soft boiled eggs. , coffee and cocoa retard the dlges i of eggs, but coffee retards the pro ,i less than the others. the bulletin the following direc ts are given as to the preparation ;ggs aa food: The following methods of prepar- soft cooked and medium cocked a have been found to give uniform Jilts in laboratory tests at the Uni- lity of Illinois: Using a granite ve stewpan of one quart capacity, pint or water was neatea over a flame; when the water boiled the was turned off and an egg which been kept in a refrigerator was ipod Into the water. Without dia ling the vessel it was covered ply and. the egs allowed to remain lie water. six minutes. It was then cooked. As shown by tests when egg was dropped Into the water, temperature fell almost at once to hegrees Fahrenheit, and then slow- i 170-171 degrees Fahrenheit. If g remained eight minutes it was jium cooked. In this case the tem 'ture of the water at the end of the ing period had fallen to 162-164 jees. oached or dropped eggs are re nd from the shell and then cooked ater. Thudichum recommends the lof salted water to which a very i vinegar has been added. The im for this is perhaps that acetic j (vinegar) tends to precipitate al pn; that is, to prevent a loss due lime of the egg being "dissolved in !vater. Flavor may also be one of jbjects sought. Iried eggs are generally cooked in , pan in a little hot fat, oil or but-.ind- may be cither soft or hard, j ding to the length of time era d in the process.. Eggs are also ionally baked in much the same jier that they are fried. . he omelet is generally regarded ie of the most appetizing forms hich eggs can be served. It cou j of the beaten egg with a little water or cream or melted but j.d&ed, quickly cooked in a little !r butler in a suitable pan and !d over so that It may be turned ht the pan in a half round form. I cooks insist that the best ome ar made by using hot water in j of miile or cream. The hot wa- i stirred into the egg yolk in the jirtion tf one tablespoon to an i ' rambled eggs resemble an omelet ' thod of preparation, but no effort ,de to preserve the characteristic form and app-iranc rf th omelet. Generally speaking, l!ghtnee;i in de Hired in the omelet and thorough mli lng In Kcramhlt-d ega. The former l.i teemed by boating, the latter by gtlr ring. OtneMa are o!ho made by tlm n'MUion ;f viir'o'iH materials, Burn as pnmley, juruM, etc "Tin UBcg of eggu for other pur poses thun food are numerous. Iarga qnantitlcH of egg white are used in the manufacture of albumen paper for photographic purposes, and the egg white and yolk and products made from thnn are very important In the manufacture of many different arti cles." The washing of new laid eggs great ly impairs their keeping qualities. Ac cording to Solbel a new laid egg placed In brine mad? in the proportion of two ounces of salt to each pint of water will at once sink to the bottom, while an egg three days old will swim JuBt immersed In the liquid. If more t.han three days old the egg will float on the surface and if more than two weeks old the (shell will barely dip in the water. As to the methods of preserving egg the only one that the department seems to think worthy of any great attention Is that of coating the eggs with water glass. Waterglasa is the popular name for potassium or sodium silicate. It is a thick syrup, in the form for which it is sold for commer cial uses. It is sold wholesale for as little as 1 3-4 cents a pound In carboy lots. One part of tho syrup is dis solved In 10 parts of water. The eggs aro coated with this solution. There, Is also a water glass powder soluble in wat;T. One gallon of the solution Is sufficient for t0 dozen eggs if they are properly packed. The statement so frequently made by housekeepers that eggs at 25 cents a dozen are cheaper than meat is true in one sense. Not, of course, with ref erence to the total amount of nutri ments obtained for the money expend ed, but because a smaller amount of money Is needed to furnish the meal. That is to say, whereas at least 1 1-4 pounds of beefsteak, costing 25 cent3, at 20 cents a pound, would be neces sary to serve fiva adults, in many fam ilies five eggs, costing 10 cents, at 23 cents a dozen, would serve the same number and probably satisfy them equally well. If the appetites of the family are such as to demand two eggs per person, doubling the cost, it is still 20 percent less than the steak. Many persons eat more than two eggs at a meal, but the average number per person, it is believed, does not gen erally exceed two in most families. A hotel chef is authority for the state ment that at least one-half the or ders he receives are for one egg. Fre quently when omelets, souffles, creamed eggs and other similar dishes are served in place of fried, poached or boiled eggs or meat less than one egg per person is used. Is is suggested that the most needed reform in the egg business is that the eggs should be sold by weight and not by number. Eggs vary so much in size that the numerical terms of sale often are unjust to either the merchant or to the consumer. Consider the Unler Dog. There is a man in New York City who is a real human. His name is Griffiths Dr. H. C. Griffiths. Two boys stole a diamond pin, which was his property, and to secure its return he had them arrested. Now he has his pin back he isn't going to prosecute the small thieves. 'Why not?'' asks Justice, stern, cold, stony. "They are enemies of society. They have robbed. They may rob again. Punishment would deter others from following in their steps. Re member, 'An eye for an eye, a tooth fr" a tooth.' " Remember, also." says Mercy, speak ing through the man whose diamond was stolen, " 'let him who is without sin cast the first stone, Remember what a course in a penal institution means to a young man. It sends him in defiant and it brings him out de praved. If, by showing leniency, the under dog may be made to become the top dog, show leniency." The respective adherents of Justice and Mercy, are requested to make choice of the varying views. New York Telegram. Great Uenianil for Vietorlnn Coini.

It actually diminished from $459,305,372 in 1S91 to $440,507, 314 in 1900. It is our export trade only with Europe that has Increased.
