There are sixty-eight re- co"ded epffs of the great ault, but this number includes several fragmentary remains thut cau only by courtesy be called eras. They may fairly be divided into four (,'roups. Ten specimens, from their perfect condition, color and style of marking, may be put into a class by themselves. Then we have thirty-four good specimens; twelve are slitfhtly cracked, badly blown or varnished efffc's, while the remaining- fourteen are imperfect, varying- from the eggs that had one end knocked off (probably for the purpose of sucking), like thut in' the Anffers museum, to the two fragments in the Natural History museum at South Kensington.

The fact of tho great airk having formerly inhabited the British isles li:m been' one great cause for the steady advance in value of its eggs. The earliest record we have of a sale by auction is in 1833, when two fetched respectively £"0 and £:-'>0, which remained about their value until 1800, when one sold for £00. In 1SSO the price hart risen to £100, followed in 1837 by ilOS and »> 1683 by £^5, The e<rff which was recently sold, though not nearly sucli a goad specimen asthat sold in 188*. has an interest to all British ornithologists from having- belonged to Yarrell, who purchased it in Boulogne of a fisherman who had been in a whaling ship. Ho had two or three swan's eg-s and this ecff on a strinjf. Yarrell asked if they were fonsale, and was told that tho white eggs were one franc each, and the spotted one two francs. Lnfor- tunatelv. we do not know the date of this transaction, but it was anterior to 1833, for in that year the egff w;is figured in Hcwitson's "British Oology. After Yarrell's death it was sold at Stevens' auction rooms for £"t (December isr>«), and purchased for the late Mr.' Frederick Bond, an old friend ot Yan-ell's. It remained In this gentleman's possession until 1S75, when it wa* sold with his unrivaled collection ot British eggs to Baron Louis d Ha- moTiville, of Chateau de Mouonvule, who sent it to Mr. Stevens. These eggs vary in sb.e, shape, color and form of markings. In length they v-u-y from four and one-eighth inches to five inches; the greater number have a while, "round, but others arc of various slia<k-s°of bull. The markings are m some cases spots, in others blotches or lines; in fact, every form of marking ,,non. to the e«rs of the razor-bill SIMPLE LUNCHEON DISHES. low to I'rnimre n Nlcu Utllu llepaitt Tor the Uui.-xpm-tml Struiigor.

Take that chocolate and break it in pieces, put it in a saucepan, and pom- some boiling hot water on it. In another stewpan pour half that quart jar of milk and stand it where it will pet boiling hot. Now take that smoked beef and cnl it in tiny pieces. By this time the milk for tin; chocolate is hot; pour it into the stewpan ivith the chocolate and hot water. Fill the empty stcwpan -with the rest of the milk; this is for your smoked beef n In creme. Put a •rood-sized lump of butter in it, stand it on tin- fire where it will heat gradually and return to your chocolate. Stir the milk and dissolved chocolate well tog-ether; stand it on the stove, let it just boil OHO minute-, pour it into your •chocolate pot, ard stand it in a hot place till ready to serve. Quickly stir two tablespoon fuAs of Hour with enough cold water to dissolve it well, leaving no lumps. As soon as the milk begins to boil in the stewpan thicken with this dissolved flour, stirring briskly to avoid lumps forming. Now, when it is nice and thick, drop in the smoked beef, let it boil lust one minute, ponr it in a deep, round platter, or an open vegetable dish,' and stand in a hot plaee while you prepare your oranges. Peel them, cut in .slices, lay them in a glass dish, sprinkle with fine sugar. Run in quick and set your table.

The need of improved sires for all our domestic animals is recoguizcil by nearly all farmers. Tlie chief obstacle to the improvement of their herds is the cost of thoroughbred males, llow is this eviL to bo met? The best suggestion is that farmers in each neighborhood combine to purchase the best aui- jnal they can procure. Each one will be entitled to the uso of his service, and probably the coat of his keeping might be paid by exacting service fees from those who did not contribute to the purchase price. A better plan than this is to require a service fee from all, and at the close of the season divide the money among- tho stockholders, after paying cost of care and keeping of the animal.—Rural World. Queen Victoria'^ Diilry. Probably tho largest dairy in the world is that owned by Queen Victoria at her model farm near Windsor. It, has floors of porcelain tiles of white and blue, containing medallions of the queen, her husband, and each of their children, marble columns supporting the roof, and windows of stained glass bordered with daisies, buttercups, primroses and May blossoms. lias-re- licts of the seasons and various agricultural designs complete the ornamentation and marble tables and basins are ranged, round the wnlls at intervals, while a perpetual stream of water runs beech or from other oily nuts is soft and oily and wastes in the cooking. Milk-fed pork is white, but hard and dry. The milk should be fed with buckwheat bran or meal to avoid this hardness of the lean meat- But the flesh of pigs fed on clover pasture through tho summer and fatted on mixed oats and peas for four weeks after leaving the pasture will be found excellent in every way and distinctly Btreaky, having the fat and lean well intei-mi.ved. This is tJift perfection of pork, while a mass of fat on a mere streak o£ lean, hard and dry, is thn very worst. PIG PEN POINTERS.

HniSTl.F.s has decided that he will get more money this year for the same weight of pork than it brought last season, as he will cure it and sell it in neater cuts and more attractive packages. IF yon have made the pigs grow well over'winter kill thorn this spring and start with more growers. Young pork chould bring a good price, and there JK more money in growing,your pork than in making it on corn. To iNcitttAfiE the interest of the boys on the farm give each of them a pig. Let them compete in feeding. Give them good books and papers on swine, and in the fall let all pork be dressed at the same age.

The character of the food has much to do with the flavor of the flesh, milk, fat or even the eggs of animals, says the New Y'ork Times. When cows are permitted, in pursuit of a depraved and diseased appetite, to consume the litter thrown out of the horse stables it makes the milk unfit for butter or cheese, although the nerson wno permits this may have- his own taste so bluuted as to fail to recognize the flavor of tho Manure in the milk or cream he pours into his coffee or tea. Only the purest kinds of food arc permissible in the dairy or poultry yard, and eggs are so sensitive to the flavors of the food that those of hens fed on fish will have the rankest kind of taste, and much more sp if they are allowed to feed on the manure of tho cows. _ This applies to the feeding of pigs for pork, boiled potatoes and barley, meal make the finest flavored bacon. The mast of chestnut and oak forests gives a peculiar flavor to the meat that some Tjcrsons think very desirable.

If six men in any community should put 11.500 into a stallion their neighbors ought to stand by them to the extent of giving them their patronage. A good stallion is an object of public- interest and tho public ought to show its appreciation of an endeavor on the partof such u club to improve the stock. If a community refuses patronage, form your club, buy your stallion and use him exclusively in the club. Don't buy r-n inferior horse whatever you do. Better breed half the mnres to a good stallion than all to a poor one that is ircc. Make war on poor stallion service, even though it mean sacrifices in many directions.
