The caufe ix a natural one. At this time of tr year the young pullet* begin lays .g. Their *Kgs naturally are small, but a* they grow older the eggs will be larger. Old hens have stopped laying. There is a limited number of matured hens' eggs but sorted as sele-tR/ they are not easily to be had. Some of the poultry and produce houses sort the eggs. The grocery' stores buy eggs by the or •half case from farmers and take them ax they come, by the dozen. In selling them the eggs are put up in paper cartons and handed out the same as canned goods. In some instances a few small eggs will be included with the larger eggs. On that way the small eggs are disposed -of fairly and without too much loss to the consumer. In some of the eastern cities eggs are sold by weight, a system which is being considered generally. Normal hens' eggs will weigh 55 pounds to the case of 30 dor ens. The pullet eggs will weigh around 47 to 49 pounds. Some farm wives who sell eggs to regular customers will cull out the smallest eggs and use them at home. The practice of sending all small eggs to the market dealer is said by poultrymen to be a handicap to the egg business. They compare eggs with oranges. If a person buys a down of large oranges at 60 cents a doeen and at home opens the sack and finds several small oranges that are worth 95 cents a doren this may be compared with a customer who buys a dozen bens' eggs and finds there are six or eight s.-all pullet eggs. Hence the egg complaint.
