NO MENTION WHETHER
THE EGG WAS COOKED
Here’s something for Bob Ripley:
J. Edgar Bryan, County Treasurer,
drove from his home early last week,
a distance of ten miles to his office
in Centreville, Queen Anne’s county.
After parking and getting out of the
car he heard a cackle from under
the hood. Investigating he found
one of the chickens from his farm
had quietly rode the ten miles with
him. She is not a lazy hen, either,
for while she enjoyed her drive she
layed an egg which we understand
was turned over to Sheriff Earl
The hen walks under the car and!
jumps up on the drip pan and sits
there to lay her eggs. This is not
the first time she has enjoyed a ride
according to Mr. Bryan. Twice be
fore she has been a willing passenger
but those times she cackled and was
put in the trunk before the car had
gone very far.
Now before leaving home Mr. Bry
an looks under the hood for the hitch
hiking hen and the eggs she lays.

VIRGINIA FOR A MONTH
Motor vehicle inspection will be <
due again in October, according to a
proclamation just signed by Governor
Colgate W. Darden. Every vehicle in j

October Ist and November Ist, with ,
no extensions likely. The inspection ,

plans early for inspection. The De- .
partment of State Police suggests
that owners make an appointment ;

unnecessary driving to the station (

any additional cars.
The inspection period last May was ,
extended by proclamation of the!
Governor, but the State Police report
that it did not accomplish its pur
The October inspection will be very

was released on $5,000 bond, and his \
first case came up on Monday, the
27th of April. The case was heard
