Widowers and divorced men are included as single and those whose conjugal condition,are unknown are .classified as married. It is estimated that tho increase in the male population between the ages mention ed- since 1911 1b between/ three and four hundred thousand.

Approximately 5,010,000 dozen eggs spoil needlessly every year In cold storage simply because some one has let clean eggs get wet or has washed dirty eggs before sending them to market, according to the specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture. Careful Investigations of large quantities of stored eggs show that from 17 to 22 per cent of washed eggs become worthless in storage, whereas only' 4 to 8 per cent, of dirty eggs stored unwashed spoil. Tho explanation is simple. Water removes from tho shell of'the egg a gelatinous covering which helps to keep air and germs out of tho inside of the egg. Once this covering is removed by washing or rain which gets to eggs in the nest, germs and molds find ready access to the contents and spoil the eggs. This enormous loss, in storage eggs [largely can bo prevented If, producers and egg handlers, especially during March, April, and May, will refrain from washing eggs destined for tho storage markets and tako pains to reduce the number of dirty eggs by providing plenty of clouu, sheKered nests for their hens Millions of oggs spoil in storage because thev havo been exposed to dew. rain, dirt, und sun in stolen nests in the grass or fence corners. In view of tills groat loss of valuable food, the department urges country storekeepers not'to accept washed eggs for shipment in case lots. Shiny eggs, especially in the early spring, probably have been washed. All washed eggs purchased should be sold locally for inimedlato consumption. HIDES OF SHARKS MAY BE USED FOR LEATHER SHOES Washington, D. C, June 12.-Secre tury of Commorce Rodfield is making a determined search for suitable sub-| stltutoa for leather. The bureau of standards, according to an announcement made tonight, is conducting ex- . periments with the tanning of hides of shark, porpoise, gray-fish, and grouper, with a view to making them com-merpially available. "Some fine leather is made from some of these fish hides," Secretary Redheld said. "If we aro successful on this line it will mean much to the, people, who must be shod, and will tend to bring downward the price ot footwear." Progress has been made toward solving the tin can problem. In this connection Mr. Redfleld said: "A crisis has been averted In connection with the supply of tin cans through the development 'of flbre, containers as substitutes-a matter of importance in the conserving of summer fruits and vegetables, in which a great number of cans ordinarily are used."
