Jn presenting tht* petition, Mr. Leokio  said it wus tin' general feeling around  the city that tho present oounoil had  been managing tho affairs of the eil\  vory well during a difficult financial  period and thai nny change now might  be detrimental to tho Interests of tho  cily. The mutter of a council for next  year hnd been discussed by some of  business men, und if nny of the present council wero unwilling to stand  for another term they would like to  know at once, so as to havo limn to  look around for some one tu take their  places. During the past year tho  council hnd begun some largo undertakings, and it was folt that it would  be unwise to interfere with them at  the present stage.  Mr. DuMoulin said thnt he believed  the. oitizons fully appreciated the groat  sacrifice the council were making, in  [riving up so much of thoir time to  oity work, and they did not want them  to make up their minds in too much  of a hurry.

Several other clauses  in tho report rotor to powers which  might bo given this commissioner.  Much of the report deals with safe  guarding tho public and all partida  concerned in tlie matter af loans for  local improvements and other public  works. It urges that every munici  pality shall be required annually to  prepare a financial statement in such  form us may be prescribed by thi  Provincial Government, and proposes  further thnt there sgall be an annual  government inspection of oil municipal accounts, and a report prepared  thereon, a copy published in the local  newspaper and a copy scut tn tilt  Provincial Govornmont, A proposal  for a statement uf the bonds issued  showing the smotinl of sinking funds  un hand and how they are invented  n,hall nho be prepared each year an.l  sent to tho government, is included in  litis portion of thu report.  An important suggestion regarding  the investment of sinking funds ii  contained in the clnuso which ^iropoaoi  thai sinking funds may be Invested in  tin1 bonds of tho issue to which the*)  are attached at a price not exceeding  the par value <if the bonds, subject tn  the consent of the government,  Un Public Works  The firat three claUSOS in the report  deal with public works. One propose?  thai before the municipality is per  mitted to begin   construction all    ar  rangomontfl shall have been made for  the permanent loan to Cover the cost  of the work. Another suggests thai  no loans shall be authorized either in  the first instance or by consolidation  of issues for a longer term than tl  life of the public work covered, aB  shown   in   the engineer's    certificate.  That lhe right of thc property owner-.  to petition against local impro\emeni  be made absolute Instead uf oondl  tlonali ni at present, is stroii^U  urged  The oommtttoo also suggesti thai  no loan shall he cuutracted without  lhe govornmont's certificate that ih/  law has been complied with. Other  clauses dealing with these iQbnB arc  for the most pari mere amplification  of the present  aet.  That instead of publishing the  whole of the authorization bylaw, aa  at present, the municipal council,  shall publish in the newspapers a  concise statement of certain prescribed  GBBontlal facts in connection with by<  laws to make a loan, is another important suggestion of tho committed]  which also asks that these facts shall  bo sen! in circular form to every rat*  payor, Tn case of loans for a [Mrlod  longer than len years, the committee  proposes lhat the government hold au  enquiry, if requested by oni-tonth o'  the number of the ratepayers affected  or one-tenth of the property va.na  tions, and lhat lhe enmiry covert lin  benefit   tn  be  derived   from   Ihe  work,  llio Oost 1  whether    Ihe municipal  ity is in a position in iindoi'lnt-Ollie  financial obllgal loan.

He look exclusion to mean thi'     total  y   exclusion   Uie BtoppagO at once of any  L  further immigration of Orientals    and  I   further, the expulsion of those already  b   here    end he    asked thut   they he ex-  t   eluded upon ihe following grounds: (1)  [j   1.acini,  Moral and  Religious., and    (,2|  jj   Social and Industrial',    lie thought lift  a could sny without fear of contradiction  u   that  the Chinese -\B a race ate steeped  K   in  the deepest    depths of superstition  1*1 end  idolatry.     In order,  therefore,    to  adapt  the    Chinaman   to our Institutions wo should be obliged lo begin by  eradicating his religion,I anguuge, superstitions, t radii ions, ideals and customs, all of whioh had been so welded  to his mind after   1,000 years    of   inheritance as  to become almost      part  of himself.     This wide difference     ho  tween the Chinese and tho resi of   our  ia Canadian     population    made difficult,  if not quite   impossible,   lho appreciation   by the   Chinese of our religion,  3 social,    political and    national  ideals  \   and  the assimilation    of the Oriental  into our national body,    Ono*nlnth of  lhe whole population of British Columbia was    Oriental    and ho    contended  j    that it would   be ruinous for   a young  and growing nation at a  timo    when  awry    newcomer    should  bo  throwing  himself, wholehearted into the development of and working for the welfare of  this country to permit of such bodies  as those formed by the Orientals who  ure utterly out of sympathy with our  ideals    and always will be and     this  I would be forever a source of weakness  .Instead of strength and a weak link iu  the chain of national great news.     Returned missionaries and others     from  China told us that thc Chinese     who  Oomo to II. C.j were not at all 'typical  of    the    average    Chinaman and that  what  we got here was nothing but tho  rilT-l'ttff of  the  seaports of  the  Chinese  coast   whose forefathers long ago fortn-  ,od the much dreaded cut-throat pirates  I With regard to the Japanese and Hindoos    whose    national    ideals  are so  much bound up in their religious    superstitions, he thought    they     should  fairly be classed with tho Chinese. Mr.  Blaokaby went on to claim that    the  .Chinese wore industrially unfit   to    be  in the province on account  of     their  socret  societies,  their dealings  in    tho  white    slave    traffic,    their  gambling  dens and other forms of vice.  Tn regard to the. Hindoo the speaker  claimed that he is thc boss agitator,  intriguer and trouble maker of all the  (Irientals who come to these shores  ��� and that thin race Is not one whit  (better in morals than the Japftliem or  | Chinese.  | In India the Hindoo was crafty, un-  j scrupulous and underhanded in his  dealings With his own people and only  fear of the whites would keep him  'straight in his relations with them.  Tho speaker claimed lastly that industrially the Orientals were not a  benefit to tho province and produced  statistics to prove that they underbid  the white man in labor with the result  that thousands woro out of employment .  Mr. Pedlar, who led for the negative  asked if nil thi- outcry against the  Orientals was a belter race antagonism  which resented the efforts of tho underdog tu rise or was it a clash between  two kindreds uplooking social forces,  both strong in elhicul motive, tho  struggle ot Lhe Oriental to get ou, to  climb to higher atundurda, ttud tho  Struggle of the white mun tu keep from  being pulled down by a striving but  laggard peoplo? Jic thought tho  average, intelligent thinker would ut  once challenge tho wisdom of the   cry  ^'Exclude the Oriental" un thu grouudn  that it wus unjust, unnecessary and  unpoUtioj unjust, because it meant dia-  orimination between aliens of diilcrent  races in tho province, unnecessary, because there wus no real menace calling  for drastic   legislation; and impolitic,  I because it was likely to raise questions  between tho different countries which  it wus advisable to avoid. Mr. Pedlar  claimed that the averuge Chinaman  and -Jap brought moro monoy per head  'than any but tho English or German;  they had less illiteracy than Lhe immi-  'grants of Southern Europe, they were  j nearly all of vigorous age and in good  health, thoy did nut become dependents  'nor provide many criminals, thoy weru  'intelligent,    energetic    uud   self-reliant  'and well able to take cure of themselves, ii white immigrants were of  equal quality they would be welcomed  enthusiastically by us. For white people to be in favor of the cry "Exclude  the Oriental" wus unfair. He claimed  thut these Orientals made good workers on farms and that there was room  for all in the province. We scut missionaries to China, India und     Japan  ,to teach these people that all were  free, and yet when they came to Canada wo said    "Exclude the Oriental."  jit surely was the hollowest form of  hypoericy.  | Mr. Harding und Mr. Wade followed  for the affirmative and negative respectively,    and    after      a recess.  Mr.  ; Welsh announced that the judges had  decided in favor of the affirmative by  a very small margin. ,\u interesting  discussion followed and quite a numbor  [took part.  |   Before the recess Mrs. L. Nelson and  j Miss Patterson rendered a duet which  Was much appreciated.  J   The next  meeting of the soeietv will  be held on January 5th, when  will be read on ''Music."

Mrs. Cratchit  mude the gravy (ready beforehand in a  little saucepan) hissing hot; Muster  Peter mushed the potatoes with Incredible vigor;   Miss Belinda sweetened up  the apple Bailee; Martha dusted the hot  plates; Bob took Tiny Tim beside him  in a tiny corner at the table; the two  young Cratchits set chairs for everybody, not forgetting themselves, and  mounting guards upon their posts,  crammed spoons i nto their mouths,  Jest they should shriek for goose before their turn came to be served. At  last the dishes were set on, and grace  .was said. It was succeeded by tx  breathless pause as Mrs. Cratchit  looking slowly all along the carving  knife, prepared to plunge it in tho  breast; bul when she did nnd when  the long expected gush of stuffing issued  forth,  one    murmur of     delight  arose all around the board, and even  Tiny Tim, excited by tbe two young  Cratchits, bent on the table with the  handle of his knife, und loubly cried.  "Hurrah!"  There never was such a goose. Hob  said he didn't believe there ever was  such a goose cooked. Us tenderness  and flavor, sizo and cheapness, were  the themes of universal admiration,  Ekod oul by apple sauce and mashed  potatoes, it was a sufficient dinner  for the whole family; indeed, as Mrs.  Cratchit said with great delight (surveying one small utom of the bone  upon the dishi, thoy hadn't ate it all  at last i Vet every one had had  enough, and the youngest Cratchits in  particular were steeped in sago end  onions to the eyebrows! But now, the  plates being changed by Miss Belinda  Mrs. Cratchit left the room alone���too  nervous to boar witnesses���to take the  pudding up, and bring it   in.  Suppose it should not be done  enough! Suppose it should break in  turning out! Suppose somebody should  have got over the wall of the back  yard aud stolen it, while they wero  merry with the goose,���a supposition  at which the two young Cratchits became livid! All sorts of horrors wero  supposed.  Ilallol A great deal of steum! The  pudding wns out of the copper. A  smell like a washing day! That was  the cloth. A smell like nn eating house  nnd a pastry cook's next door to each  other, with a laundress's next door to  that! That wns the pudding! Tn half  n minute Mrs. Cratchit entered��� flushed, but smiling proudly with the pudding, liko q ipeokled cannon ball, so  hard and firm, blu/ing in half of naif  n quartern of Ignited brandy, and be-  (light with Christmas holly stuck into  tho top.  Oh, n wonderful pudding! Bob ���Cratchit said, nnd calmly, too, thut he regarded B ns the greatest success achieved by Mrs. f'rntchet since their  marriage. M's. Cratchit aaid that,  now the weight was off her mind, she  would confess she had her doubts  about the quantity of flour. Everybody hud something to say about it,  but nobody said or thought it wns nt  all a small pudding for u Inrge family.    It WOtlld hnve boon flat  heresy to  Jatfrfjolasi  ii no.   Any Cratchit would have blush  eil to hint ut auch u thing.  At lust the dinner wits all Hone, the  loth  waa cleared,  lhe hearth    Hwept,  ml  the fire niatle up. The compound  n lhe jug being tasted, und considered  erfed,   apples  and  ornnges  wore put  pon the table, and a shovelful of tho  liostnuts    on    the fire.    Then all tho  Yatchit family drew round the  hearth  n what   Hub Cratchit called a   circle.  [loaning half a one; and at Hob (Vat-  hit's elbow  stood  tho  family  display  I glass,���two tumblcra and a custard  up without a handle.  These held  the hot stuff from     the '  ug,  however,  as well as golden gob- i  eta would have done; and Mob served |  it out with beaming looka, while tho  heatuuts on the firo sputtered and  racked noisily. Then Hob proposed:���  "A Merry Christmas to us all. my  tears, God brVss us!"  Which all tho family reechood.  "Cod bless every one!" said Tiny  itit. Ihe lasl of ull.

'Twus  the   night   before  Christmas,   when   all  through thc house  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care  In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;  The children were nestled all snug in their beds  While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads  And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap,  Had just settled our brains for a long winter nap  When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter,  I sprung from my bed to see what was the matter  Awav to the window I flew like a flash,  Tore open the window and threw up the sash.  The moon, on the crest of the new fallen snow,  Gave a lustre af middav to objects below;  When what to my wondering eyes should appear  But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer  With a little old driver, so lively and quick  I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.  More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,  And he whistled,   and shouted, and called them  bv name:  "Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer   and  Vixen,  On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Dundcr and Blixen!���  To thc top of the porch, to thc top of the wall!  Now, dash awav. dash awav, dash away all!"  As drv leaves before thc wild hurricane fly,'  When thev meet with an obstacle mount to the  skv.  So up to the housetop the coursers thev flew,  With the sleigh full of tovs���and St. Nicholas too  And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof  Thc prancing and pawing of each little hoof.  As I drew in mv head and was turning around,  Down  the   chimney   St. Nicholas came with   a  bound.  He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot  And his   clothes   were all tarnished with    ashes  and soot  A bundle of tovs he had flung on his back,  Asd lie looked like a peddler just opening his pack  His eves, how thev twinkle! His dimples,    how  merry!  His checks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;  His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,  And   the   beard   on his chin was as white as the  snow.  The stump of a pipe he held ticht in his teeth.  And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath  lie had a broad face with a little round belly  That shook when he   laughed like a bowl full   of  iellv.  He was chubby and plump���a right jollv old elf;  And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself,  A wink of his eve, and a twist of his head,  Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.  He spoke not    a word, but went straight to his  work,  And filled all the stockings, then turned with    a  jerk,  And laving i,.s finger aside of his nose,  And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.  He   sprang    to   his   sleigh,   to his team gave a  whistle,  And awav thev all flew like the down of a thistle  But I heard    him exclaim,   ere he drove out   of  sight.

A complete line of  DOORS  AND   WINDOWS  LATH AND SHINGLES KKLOWNA RECORD  THURSDAY, DECEMBER Ifi, 1913  . T.Tj around the season of  ������ the Coming of Love aB  a Utile Child there have  . I.rung legends and be-,  liefa, like blossoms In  a gracloiih (.lime, which testify with  ���ubtlety to the depth of the appeal of  the birth of Christ. Here divinely j  ���plritual symbolism and there sweet  human tenderness and pathos appear,  and, blended, they evidence the world's!  belief that this was both Son of Man  and Son of Cod.  An Irish legend tells that, on Christ-!  mas eve, tho Chrisi-Chlid wanders out'  ln the darkness and cold, and the  peasants still put lighted candles In  their windows to guide the sacred little feet, that they may not stumble on  their way to their homes. And In  Hungary the people go yet further ln  their tenderness for the Child, they  spread feasts and leave their doors  open that Ho may enter at Ills will,  while throughout Christendom there is  ft belief that no evil can touch any  child who is born on Christmas eve.  The legend which tells how the very  hay which lined the manger In which  the Holy Babe was laid put forth living red blossoms at midwinter at the  touch of the Babe's body could only  have arisen from belief In the renewal  of life Lhrous.li the Lord of Life.  WHolg Thorn.  ' T is not so many centuries  ago since there was thnt holy  thorn at Glastonbury wliich  blossomed every Christmas, and, so  ran the legend, had done ever since  St. Joseph of Arlmathea, having come  as apostle to Britain, and. binding at  Glastonbury, had stuck his staff of dry  hawthorn Into the soil, commanding it  to put forth loivos aiid blossoms. This  the staff straightway did, and thereby  was the king converted to the Christian faith, the faith which preached  life from death.  The holy thorn of Glastonbury flourished during the centuries until the  civil wars. 1 luring those It was uprooted; but several persons had hnd  trees growing from cuttings from tlie  original tree, and those continued to  bloom at the Christ-season, just as  their parent, which had grown from  St. Joseph's staff, l.ad bloomed. And  about the middle of ihe 18th century  It was recorded in the Gentleman's  Magazine how Hie famous holy thorn  would not deign to recognize the new  style cab ;idar, which had then come  into force but would persist In blossoming as of old on old Christmas  day!  In those days the anniversary of the.  advent of the Babe had certainly  meant more to the common people  than merely a time for feasting and  revelry, for giving and receiving; It  had been also a season for holy observances, for they refused to go to  church on New Christmas day, the  holy thorn not being then in blossom.  So serloUB became the trouble that, tlie  clergy found it prudent to announce  that Old Christmas day should also  be kept sacred as before. Only another story of men's weak, superstitious minds? True, perhaps; but the"  are better who evidence some spiritual  weakness than thofe who wallow In  the wholly material, and when we;  cease to be careful of tl e cup and the  platter, we become not over careful of1  their contents.  obEr&srtiristmas Rose.  NOTHER of those spiritual  parables is the legend of  the Christmas rose, and It  tells how good things, fit for giving.  Spring up ready to the hand which  earnestly desires to give to the Child.  It Is said that a certain maiden of  Bethlehem was so poor that she had  nothing to give to the Habe lo Whom  kings brought wealth from afar, and,  as she stood, longing and mourning,  and angel appeared to her, saying:  "Look at thy feet, beneath the snow,"  nnd lo! on obeying the maiden found  that a new flower had miraculously  sprung up and blossomed nt her needs.  Every sine** then, runs this story, this  exquisite flower, with its snowy petals  just touched by suggestions of pinkish  bloom, is to be found at this season;  and, indeed, its half-opened cups are  like chalices of love, and lis fully*  upread petals are like a happy Innocence, fit symbols for the gifts for tho  Babe of spotless Innocence, whose  heart was the vessel of love.  nas Eve Legends.  HERB nre several exceedingly touching legends concerning bells, which are heard  ringing from burled cities and villages  ;ftt this season. One belongs to a village near Raleigh, In Nottingham*  ���hire, and the story runs that once,  where there Is now but a valley, thero  was a village which, with every trace  of life and habltalion. had been swallowed by an earthquake; hut ever  alnfe, at Christmas, the bells of tho  burled church are heard to ring as of  old.  A similar legend Is told of Preston.  In Lancashire, and yet.   another   nnd  moro moving one comes    from    the  Netherlands.    It Is aaid that the city  of Been  was  notorious for its black  and  shameless   sins,   as   well  as   renowned   for  its   beauty  and  mngnlfl-  cence.    To tho Sodom of the middle  ages  came  our  Savior on  one anniversary of his birth, and  went as a  beggar from door to door, but not ono  ;ln  all   that   Christmas   keeping   city  'gave the Master of the abundance, Sin  h|HI rampant on every side, but uot  a trace of Christmas bounty and got '1  will, and he called to the sut. which,  as of old. obeyed his voice, and Been,  the city of sin, was buried deep, clean  out of sight, beneath the waves, Hut  ever at Christmas up from beneath tho  covering waters comes the sweet calling of church hells buried In Hern It  Is s legend which appears to tell in  parable that nothing which ever belonged to tho Christ, and was dodl  cated to his service, is ever wholly lost  from him and alienated from service;  that over ami again something of their  inherent beauty and compelling sweetness rises rrom the depths through all  seeming ruin.  f$% sSfae^angef.  RADITION declares that  within the stone manger  there was another one  of wood, and that the stone cradle In  the Chapel of the Nativity is, indeed,  the ouler tnatiger Splendid Is that  humble stone trough now with whito  marble, softly rich with costly draperies, and radiant with a silver star,  which Is surrounded by 16 lamps, ever  a-llt. But yet more glorious is tho  wooden manger at Rome, held to be  the veritable manger in which the  Christ-child lay, It was removed to  Rome in the seventh century, during  the Mohammedan invasion of the Holy  Land, and there It Is preserved In a  strong brazen chest, from which it Ib  brought forth on Christmas days,  when it Is placed on the Grand Altar.  It is mounted upon a stand of sliver,  which Is inlaid with gold and gems,  and the shrine In which it rests Is of  purest rock crystal. In tht days in  whfch this was accomplished men,  whatsoever may have been their  shortcomings in other directions, gave  magnificently to the Church Visible.  *fr���fflistmas Bells.  RADITION Bays that tho  hour of the Babe's birth  was the hour of midnight,  and legend adds that from then until  'dawn cocks crow. In Ireland It is  held that whoso looks into a mirror on  this eve will see the devil or Judas  Iscariot looking over his shoulder.  6urely thought sufficient to drive tho  hardiest soul to a thought of the innocent Babe.  Another legend tells that, on Christmas eve. Judas Iscariot Is released  from that hell- "his own place"���and  is allowed to return to earth that he  may cool himself tn ley waters.  Wild and Improbable although such  and such legends appear on their  .faces, they bear study and repay it,  for we then see that they are full of  isubtle spiritual expression, as It were;  'that they are parables of certain spiritual facts, and It will be ill for us  ;should tbe Christmas day ever dawn  on which such (lowers of tender faith  and wonder shall appear to us no  more than dry curious specimens from  the dead roots of superstition.  UIDat Christmas meat:..  Christmas means hope and  its realization. The uiild  grows eagerly expectant as  the time approaches for the  visit of Swta Claus. While  this fiction remains unquestioned, the Imagination  opens new and wider worlds,  and ideals become so much  a part of the mind that the prosaic  snd commonplace can never crush  them. Until Hie youth reaches manhood and independence) Christmas is  the happiest day of the year. Its gifts  and hearty good cheer impress family  affection, parental thotlghtfulness and  brotherly love. The dullest and most  [irresponsive of fathers and mothers  are uplifted to a vision of higher lifo  by the Interchanges of souvenirs and  the merry meeting with children and  grandchildren at Ihe table and fireside. Few can escape and all enjoy  tho meaning of the festival, the lesions it conveys and the Inspiration  jit gives, and we enter upon a brighter  ifuture and a fuller appreciation of the  | beneficence of the practice of faith,  [hope and charity. The loved ones  [who have crossed to the other side,  [the loved near and far who are still  Iwlth us, the old homestead witli Its  [precious memories, the old church  :wbose sacred associations tie together childhood, maturity and age, love,  jmarrlage nnd death; the schoolhouso  jwhere the beginnings of education  "were so painful, and tho ever-Increasing pleasures of the pursuit of learning through the high school, academy  and college are recalled and recited.  and there is exquisite delight In these  oft-told tales, and new experiences enliven this blessed anniversary.���Leslie's Weekly.

Tho spirit of  Christmas even affects people who for  the rest of the year are devoid of  sentiment and of feeling for their fellows.

Practical experience hns shown that  crate feeding is nut only a very satisfactory but also economical method ol  fattening poultry. The saving in the  amount of feed required to produce ono  pound of gain is quite marked and lhe  feeder is enabled to observe to greater  advantage the progress being made by  individual birds, lie can also, if necessary*  curtail   Lhe duration  of  the feed"  ��� ing period in the case of birds wliich  havo attained their maximum weight  and are ready lo be placed in the fin  ' ishing crate.  ! Crate fattening cannot with success  bo carried on in a haphazard way. The  feeder requires lo understand Lho principle* of what he is al and to [five the  necessary attention to the details of his  work. 'In order to tench the proper  .methods of feeding poultry in crates  the live stock commission at Ottawa  ; has had prepared a suasonnblo illns-  ; t rated pamphlet on the silbji ot which  e\ plains clearly the oonstrttotion of a  .fattening crate,   the constituents    nnd  ��� preparation of proper rat ions, the  mot hods of feeding, killing nnd dressing birds   and   information   regarding  ; paoking for mnrkol. The work which  |is designated in pnmphH So. - ofthe  ILive Stuck Branch is available to all  who imply for it while the edition lasts  llii the Publication Branch of the Department  of Agriculture at Ottawa.  coi.oi. i\ i:i;r;s  A professor al Liverpool has beon  ihrrying out some tests in regard to  | nutriment value of while and brown  i eggs. A number of eggs were selected  which had been laid in one day oa  [a mixed poultry farm. They were  [graded according to color, and then  the eggs wore carefully analysed in  the laboratory, \ine-tenl hs of tho  contents of every egg is pure water  and so of no food value whatever, hut  in the remaining port on is packed  away >onie of the most nutritious  food known. This was carefully analysed into its constituents, and the  anion at of fa |. which is the really  nutrient element, was estimated or  woighed,  Some remarkable results were His-  covered. The darkest egg, one laid  by    a Ruff Orpington, was found     to  contain ten per cent more fat that the  lightest colored egg. Moreover, tho  amount of fat wus found to increase  with the deepening iu color of tho  shell. A vory big whito egg might  contain as much nutrition aa a small  brown one, bul, weight, for weight the  darker egg was always tho best.  The professor who has been currying out ihe experiments seemed genuinely concerned about the chickens.  "This fat is all the embryo hus to  live on/' he said, "and it appears as  if some of tho ehickons stand a much  better chance of avoiding scraggincsg  than others. They get a better start  in life. But we shall probably find  when we consult practical men that  lhe dark eggs are laid by the bigger  breeds of birds, and thus tho chickens  which had most nourishment in the  egg gi'ows up to be the biggeal  lowl."  l'l.OVlU'lAI.
