Sometimes the habit is formed by the ; carelessness  of the kitchen   maid,   or: house-keeper, in throwing the egg-shells into the pail antl giving them with the other waste to the bens.   This should never be done, if you want the hens to a+respccl their own eggs.

Truly, one-half of the world does not know low the other half lives. I must say that I was treated with a certain amount of thievish honor, and my confidence was in no way misplaced. 1 duly paid the "two quid," received my to the confines of civilization; but, if I live a thousand years, I shall never forget tho aspect of the district traversed for utter squalor and abject misery, surpasses anything my imagination had previously conceived.

Giving the shells every morning, Ihe craving ceased, anil we found tho eggs remaining in the nests undisturbed. As an assistanl to ibis remedy, we manufactured an egg-trap from a common nest-box.

The rear board has the! same inclination toward the center, and ; projects over the other board far enough to protect tho egg when it has rolled awtiy.   The space between the boards is the eggs. The egg-box may be lin with a handful of sawdust, or chaff, to protect tlie shells from cracking.' If tho back board bo furnished with hinges, il can be used as a lid, to allow of the rc-movel of the eggs, k is a complete egg-trap, and with the oyster shells, in our ease, abated the nuisance of egg eating. Many think, that, when a hen has contracted the habit of egg-eating, the shortest way is tho best, anil instead of eating she is put in a condition to be eaten. But a good layer is too valuable to be given up without an effort lo reform her bad habit, often acquired through the negligence of tbe owner.
