FOUND GOLD IN EGGS.
MIninff Man Enlightens Symposium
on One Phase of Hen Life.
A party seated around a table at a popu
lar club yesterday became engaged in a
very animated discussion over a para
graph which one of them read from a
paper. This told of a quantity of gold
having been found in the gizzards of a
?ont5 o whnt f Sl1
Southern Oregon, whose farm, adjoined a
statement," to put it mildly, while the

remainder thought it might be true.
"You know," said one, "that chickens
eat, or rather swallow, small gravel
stones, which are ictalncd In their giz
zard, to assist In digesting the grain they
are fed on. Perhaps they would swallow
smaU pieces of gold for the same pur-
"lhat is the correct Idea," said a placer
mining man, who was one of the party.
"I have often noticed that when we were
stripping the earth off an extension to
our mine, the chickens, of which a large
number are kept in the camp-, would al
ways be on hand, searching for bugs and
worms. Whenever they saw a particle
of gold they would swallow it. When
chickens are killed there, the gizzards are
always carefully 'cleaned up,' and often
gold to the value of $5 or more Is found
in a single gizzard."
"Why don't you kill them all?" asked
the capitalist of the party.
"Why should I imitate, tho fool who
killed the goose which laid golden eggs?"
asked the mining man.
"You do aot pretend to say that your
chickens lay-golden eggs, do you?" shout
ed the man at the head of the table.
"That is Just what they do," was the
reply. "Not eggs of solid gold, of course,
but as the gold worn out in their giz
zards is not absorbed in their systems,
It all goes into the shells of the eggs they
lay, which are carefully saved up and
finally burned In a crucible, and the gold
recovered. You know it is one of the
first laws of nature that nothing can be
destroyed, however often its form may be
changed, and every particle of gold the
chickens pick up is recovered from the
shells of their eggs. The only trouble is
that the cook cannot use the shells of
these eggs to settle coffee, nor can they
be used for incubating purposes. The
gold permeates the shells thoroughly, and
the young chickens cannot break their
way out, so whenever we want to raise
young chickens we have to send down to
the valley, where there are no gold mines,
to procure eggs to charge our incubator."
ARCHBISHOP CHRISTIE HOME
"Was Active la Discussing 1005 Fair
His Views oh Church Matters.
Archbishop Christie returned Saturday
night from Washington, D. C., where he
attended the annual meeting of American
archbishops which was held at the Cath
olic University in the National capital.
The university Is in a flourishing condition.
said Archbishop Christie last night, and
is fulfilling the hopes of the clergy, who
were responsible for its inception.
Of 13 archbishops In the United States,
all were present but two Archbishop Fe

of the see of New Orleans, who is still in
Rome in conference with the pope and
other dignitaries of the church. Cardi
nal Gibbons presided, and affairs pertain

discussed at the sessions.
Archbishop Christie said that there was
no reliable information as to the identity
of the apostolic delegate to be appointed
by the pope to succeed Cardinal Martinelll.
He did not believe that the published
cablegram that the pope's sympathy for
Spain would have any Influence in the
appointment was to be considered seri
ously from any standpoint. The arch
bishop was reticent about discussing
church matters of the future. In speak

WHY ABOLISH COMMISSIONS?
Mr. Corbett Argues Against Change
in Xew Charter.
PORTLAND, Dec. 15. (To the Editor.)
Is there any good reason for abolishing
such commissions as have been wisely
and economically conducted? Recently
the city voted by a large majority for a
Park Commission, and before it hag
fairly entered upon its work it Is proposed
to abolish It. The Water Commission has
been in existence since the plant was ac
quired by the city from the private cor
poration. All acknowledge It has been
wisely and Judiciously conducted, greatly
to tho benefit of tihe city and its citi
zens. By their wisdom and foresight the
best system and the best water in the
United States has been secured, which, to
gether with other great attactions of cli
mate, location and the city's renown as a
beautiful resort, is bringing to us thou
sands who are seeking new homes.
The Water Commission act was so
framed as to keep it free from political
influence and Jugglery. It was believed
that business men of Integrity could be
secured to serve on this commission with
out nay or hope of reward other than the
common good that they with other fellow
citizens would enjoy. They have all acted
with conscientious fidelity to that end.
Tho Fire and Police Commissions have
been changed with the change of politics,
"sometimes to our detriment. If they could
be more permanent and Ies3 subject to
change with the change of political ad
ministrations, the same as the Water
Commission, it would, in my Judgment,
bo better for the community. They would
act then without fear or favor for or
against any one or any class, but solely
for the good of the entire community. No
10 men can afford, with or without pay,
to take upon themselves the entire du
ties of these several commissions, but let
these duties be distributed and performed
by good, reliable men on these respec
tive commissions and you will have good
results. After all Is said, it depends large
ly on the men. the personnel, of such
commissions. Where they have performed
their duties well and satisfactorily to the
public, why make a sweeping change
that is quite likely to prove less satisfac
tory than tho present system?

AUTOMATIC ALARM SENT IN
of Mason, Ehrman 4s. Co.'s
Store Got Too Hot.
The value of an automatic fire alarm
system was forcibly illustrated yesterday.
about noon, when an alarm of fire was
sent from Mason, Ehrman & Co.'s store,
Second and Pine streets. The firm had Its
store protected with thermostats, placed
15 feet apart over the ceilings, and when
these registers indicate 160 degrees of heat
they expand and an alarm of fire is sent
to fire headquarters. Another alarm is
registered along the wires to every fire
station-house In the city.
Yesterday it became necessary to heat
the store for the resumption of business
today, and during the absence of the
watchmen from that particular part of
the building the stove sent out such a
volume of heat, that, bangl went out a
warning note of alarm frcm the automatic
fire-box. Engines and trucks tore to the
scene to take care of the fire, but there
was none there. The celling was very hot,
however, and the firemen said that if the
heat had been allowed to Increase without
warning eent out from the automatic box,
a lively blaze would have been there to
welcome them when they arrived.

KINDERGARTENS TO OPEN
THREE OF FREE SCHOOLS FOR
LITTLE TOTS READY FOR WORK.
Inatrnction Begins Today, as Re
salt of Judge George's Decision
Delay In East Side Schools.
Three out of the six free kindergartens
will open their doors to the children ot
Portland this morning, as a result of the
decision rendered by Judge George Fri
day. There will be some happy faces at
the schoolrooms, for teachers, children
and mothers will welcome the news with
glad hearts. The three schools that are
ready to begin work at such short no
tice are the Third-Street Mission; the
one at 391 Eighteenth street, North Port
land, and that at 404 Third street, South
Portland. Miss Daisy Gaylord's school at
Seventeenth and Market will open on
Wednesday morning. The other tw o, at !3
Russell street, Alblna, and at 63S East
Alder street, will not open for the pres
entat least not until after Christmas.
It Is Miss Prlchard's idea to have these
schools that are ready to begin work
promptly give the children one week's
study before the holidays, so that they
may have an opportunity to learn the
Christmas songs and games, and in this
way become imbued with the Christmas
spirit. After Christmas it is expected that
the work of the schools will go on reg
ularly and without interruption.
During the long interval for rest for
to the Summer vacation has now been
added nearly three more months eome of
the teachers have been compelled to make
other plans apart from kindergarten
work, and for this reason, and because
there Is difficulty in re-renting the school
rooms that were formerly used on the
East Side of the river, there will be some
little delay In reopening these two
Two new principals and four assistants
are needed for the work. The public will
be particularly sorry to learn that Miss
Mallie Efilngor, whose sacrificing and very
capable work at 391 North Elghteentn
street, haj attracted so much attention
and pleasant comment, will no longer be
at her post. She will be greatly missed,
as she was peculiarly fitted for the work,
having a rare Insight into the needs of
child life. The other vacant principalshlp
will be at Alblna, where Mrs. C. T. Tinker
was formerly In charge. The selection of
new teachers and a thousand other mat
ters relating to the reopening of the
kindergartens will keep Miss Prichard
very busy for the next few weeks.
