If the young chick is developed
from the egg without the aid of
any external agency, save beat, it
follows that eggs contain much
protein . (tissueforming material)
and mineral matter, because these
are the materials out of which
bone and blood are built.
Hie white of an egg is made up
orincipelly of albumen and water.
The yolk contains not ouly prote
in, but fat of a very assimilable
nature. Yolks of eggs are especi
ally rich in ^the quallity of the
mineral matter, also. These are
phosphorus, iron, calcium, potassi
um and magnesium in the form of
salts and other chemical com
pounds. The latter foods are nec
essary in making the chemical
changes of the body, if health is
to be maintained. They are also
necessary for the development and
growth of the honey structure of
the child's body. Because of this
fact, and the large percentage of
protein and aasimilable fat in the
yolkaofeggs, these are valuable
food, especially for children and

cause of the mild flavor, the white
may he combined with milk and
many other cold drinks to in
crease the nutritive value of a
liquid or semi-solid diet.
Effect of lleat
Heat hardens and toughens albu
men. Albumen coagulates below
the boiling point. At about 160
deg. F. the albumen of the egg is
a soft, tender, white jell; there
fore eggs cooked below the boiling
point are more digestible and
wholesome. . v
Soft Cooked Eggs
1. Pour boiling water over the
eggs, four to one quart; cover the
vessel, allowing it to stand where
the water cannot boil from seven
to ten minutes, depending on con
2. Pour boiling water in both
compartments of a double boiler.

3. Put eggs in cold water;
bring the water to the boiling
point. Serve immediately.
Hard Cooked Eggs
1. Pour boiling water in both
compartments of a double boiler;
put the eggs in the inner division,
cover, and place on the back of
the stove where water will not
boil for forty-five minutes. The
yolks will be granular and the
whites will be firm, but not tough.
Egg yolks cooked in this way
are very valuablq for under nour
ished children and convalescents.
2. Boil thirty minutes.
* Poached Edge
Break the eggs, one at a time, in
a saucer, and slip them into a pan
of boiling salted water. Remove
at once to a cooler part of the
stove where the water cannot boil.
As soon as the egys are set, serve

riiere is now a Dew spirit abroad
in the world. It is the spirit of
democracy, the spirit of getting
together, the spirit of cooperation.
This spirit is finding expression in
small groups, in clubs and lodges,
in unions and federations and in
a growing spirit of unity among
the churches. It is beginning to
seek embodiment in terms of civic
consciousness, in better national
unities and in world policies.
Because of the isolation and in
dividualism of the smaller towns
and cities this spirit is slow in
finding means, of expression. The
swaller towns are social units of
great importance, in some respects
of more importance than thelarger
cities. The strongest and most
aggressive men of the cities have
come from the country or the
smaller towns. The greatest men
in the professions,' the greatest
leaders in politics and statecraft,
in indurtry and commerce have
come from the country or smaller
towns. The greatest man that ever
lived came from the little town of
It is possible to make these
smaller towns places .of great in
fluence and power.
An old method improving a town
was to get some man of wealth and
public spirit to give it a fountain,
donate a monument or put up a
library. These are all important,
but it is far more important to do
tbiDgs that will develop a public
spirit, a spirit of unity apd furnish
an opportunity and a channel
through which this spirit may. be
expressed for the common good.
The first problem of these
smaller towns is to see themselves
and their needs clearly. The great
est object of their citizens should
not be to get as mauy dollars np
they can and keep them as lon^s
they can. but to build tbe besf^
town they can and to produce tbe
best type of boys and girls, men
and women, tbe best churches and
schools, the best forms df amuse
ment and recreation and to boost
with enthuiasm anything that will
give an opportunity for commun
ity expression, to things making
for the common good.
The mid winter chautauqua
festival'that is to be given in our
town during the days 16, 17 and
18, in Newsome's Hall, affords
J ju?t Hucb an opportunity and chan
I nel of expression. It should have
the cooperation of every citizens
of our town. Its session should
be aiinouuoed by young and old.
Our largest auditorium should be
filled with enthusiastic boosters.
If this is done, and well done, it
will be worth many limes its cost
to our town.
The Radcliffe Bureau of Wash
ington, D. C., is furnishing in
these festivals wholesome amuse
ment, valuable instruction and a
lofty inspiration. The towns and
cities where these festivals Have
been held are loud in their praise
and sav that it is making good on
this great program.
By concentrating the twelve
performances into three days it is
possible to make a much greater
impression than if they were given
one every few weeks extending
over many months, and in addition
it does not cost our town one half
This festival will give our peo
ple a larger vision of individual
and social life.
There will be discussed and set
forth in this program the great
constructive forces of civil izatioiv
the great achievements that the
human race has made up to the
present time and some of the great
problems that are now before the
world for solutiop.
It will do our town much ytood.
It will give us eager visions and
higher ideals. It ought to make
for cleaner streets and yards,
better sanitation, the development
of more beauty spots in our town
and a-wide-awake public spirit. "
Out of it ought to grow a per
manent organization such as a
Boosters Civic Club, possibly also
a County Farm Bureau. These
would^p.much to bring the town
and surrounding country into a
much closer fellowship. Most
important of all we should decide
to make the Festival an annual
event. Join hands with the public
spirited men of our town who have
become guarantors and workers to
bring this Festival here. Be a
booster, buy a season ticket at once
i if you are not supplied, attend the
| meetings and help to make it a
great success, this year, next year
and the years following. -.

A Real State-Wide Primary.
The people of North Carol inn
expecting that there will be passed
by the present General Assembly
a State wide primary which will
be the real thing and that behind
it there will be a corrupt practices
act which will mean business.
It is time that the bills be con
sidered by the House and the
Senate, and the expectation of the
people is that there will be ' no
makeshift. The people are to be
considered and' the Democracy is
the party to consider the people.
The naming of party candidates
should be directly in the hands of
the people of the various parties.
If we have correctly diagnosed
the sentiment of the peoole of the
State?and we believe we have?
then the. call is for a legalized
State-wide primary for all parties
and for all elective offices on the
same day, the expenses of the pri
mary to be paid by the State and
the counties as they are affected.
"Trust the people," said Secretary
Bryan, while in Raleigh, and be
waa uttering the correct Democra
tic doctrine. And we can well
trust the people to select the men
whom they wish to elect 'to office.
The Henderson. Gold Leaf
speaks up for Vance county, and
what that paper says will be said
by many papers in many counties.
Declaring for the State-wide
primary that paper has the follow
ing in its latest issue:
"If the Legislature or anyone
else wants to know whatsentiment
is in Vance county (out side of
professional politicians, if really
there are any such in this county)
in regard to a State-wide primary,
the Gold Leaf believes it is in
position to say that at least two,
opt of every three Dempcratic
voters in the county favor such
primary properly safeguarded by
law. As to our Republican friends,
we could hardly undertake to say
with accuracy what percentage of
their voters in Vance favor the
State-wide primary, as we have
not talked quite so freely with
them on the subject The people
of Vance are tired of the politici
ans' primary and want a people's
primary."?News and Observer.
