is the greates market for eggs of any town inthe state Our merchants always pay the very top market price and farpnera bring their eggs to Afton from adjoin ing counties On Friday Saturday anc Monday last there were bought anc shipped from Afton 193 cases of eggs in excess of what was consumed in the city There are 30 dozen in each case so that 5790 dozen were shipped in three days and which were only average days during the spring and summer Over SGOOwere paid the farmers for eggs in three days AVe had some doubt as to the suprem acy of Afton as egg center and a little inquiry proved that the doubt waswell founded During the three days named by The StarEnterprise one Corning firm alone received for shipment more than double the number received al Afton while the other firm was not far behind On Thursday Friday and Sat urday Monday and Tuesday Apr 2123 and 24 W J Kellogg received 405 cases and the Corning Produce com pany received 340 a total of 745 This is alinost four times the number shippec from Afton It is customary to regard the Ameri can hen as a great institution but few realize how great she really is In three days the Corning buyers took in over a quarter of a million eggs and paid for them over 82000 Thisis a little above tne average and still during the season the receipts will not run much less thai this And our egg editor isgiot experl enough to estimate the homeconsump ton or the number now being used to produce the always welcome spring chicken A SPLENDID SUCCESS The Oratorio Given Under the Directionof Allss Beymer Highly Appreciated From
