Ellis Parker Butler once wrote
that "Pigs is Pigs," thereby establisn
'ing a precedent for the comparison of
any two like objects.. In The Dalle3,
uny grocer will explain that "eggs
'is eggs," and that they are mighty
cheap Tight now at that. -But Mrs.
Smith French and The Rev. G. K.
Hartman contend that eggs are not
just "eggs," but that some ,may be
classed 1ft the category of "super
eggs." Yesterday Mrs. Smith French camo
forward with the announcement that
she is the owner of a Rhode Island
Red hen, which had presented her
'with an egg measuring six inches
In circumference the small way
around, and eight Inches In circum
ference the long way.
True to the ultra-modern proverb
that "somebody Is always taking the
'joy out of life," The Rev. G. K. Hart
man this morning calmly announcea
that Rhode Island Red hens are not
in it when it comes to laying big eggs.
Although riot wishing to belittle Mrs.
French's hen or her efforts along
large egg producing lines, The Rev.
Hartman added that he has in his
yard- a White Leghorn' hen which can
show Mrs. French's, Rhode Islana Red
cards and spades when it comes to
laying eggs. In proof of this asser
tion, The 'Rev. Hartman has an egg
measuring six and one half inches
around the small circumference and
eight inches around the large circum
ference, a grand total of half an inch
larger than the Rhode Island Red
hen's best effort, he declared. -
For the benefit of any persons' who
are incredulous, The Rev. Hartman
has the championship egg ami hen in
his possession at the present time
and is perfectly willing to show them
'to all Interested persons, he explained.
'ROUND COAST BASE8
By United Press
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., April 20
Yesterday's ball games failed to
make, any particular change in the
aspect of the Coast league race, but
they served1 to amuse the fans con
siderably. Only two games were played. San
Francisco beat Vernon at Los An
geles, 8 to 0, and Los Angeles beat
Oakland at- San Francisco, 4 to 2.
The Seals had all their fun with
Vernon In the first three innings
during which they made- seven of
their eight runs and most of their
14 hits. f
The feature of the Los Angeles
Oakland game was the way ancient
Doc Crandall let the Oaks down with
Sacramento and Seattle did not
play, the teams having been on the
road, and the Salt Lake - Portland
game at Portland was postponed be
cause the grounds were wet.
