TO TELL THE AGE OF EGGS

To determine the exact age of eggs, dissolve about 4 ounces of common salt in a quart of pure water and then immerse the egg.
If it be only a day or so old, it will sink to the bottom, but if it be 3 days old it will float in the liquid. If more than 5, it comes to the surface and rises above in proportion to its increased age.

Freeland Tribune (Freeland, Pa.) June 27, 1889 Pg2

TEMPTED A MAD DOG

Offer of Dr. Ed N. Small, of Sedalia, Mo., to give $500 to anyone who would be bitten by a rabid dog of Dr. Small's, and treat to a madstone for cure, while not intended as a bona fide offer, has attracted more attention than the doctor anticipated.

He has had applications from several men by mail and in person to accept the proposition, but to all of them the doctor has replied that the offer was a joke, and that he would not stand by it.

One man, however, a stranger in the city from Arkansas, who refused to give his name, was not to be put off in this way. He gained access to the place where the rabid dog was, boldly bared his arm, and exposed it to the dog.
The animal immediately bit a piece of flesh out of the man's arm. The dog died in convulsions 15 minutes later. The man applied a madstone to the wound, and he is still alive and well, but apprehensions are felt for his future. It is thought the man's mind is affected.

There has been discovered near Yuba Dam a fugitive sheep, which, in swimming through the muddy water, had become thoroughly covered with " slickens," in which much grass seed had been mixed. A thick crop of green grass is now growing upon the sheep's back.
Both the sheep and the grass are being carefully guarded, and when the latter has reached its full growth it will be harvested, converted into hay and preserved as one of the California curiosities.

A GHASTLY PICKLE

Decatur, Ill., Apr. 19---On Friday night the skeleton of an infant packed in salt was found in a box in Mrs. Kate Duffy's room.
It had been secreted there over a year. A dog smelling it, knocked down the box, and a Mrs. Ed Blair made the ghastly discovery.
Mrs. Duffy has been a widow ten years, and says the box was left with her over a year ago by a strange lady. Eight months since Mrs. Duffy says she opened the box and noted the contents, but failed to inform the officers, and just put it back in the corner.
The theory of the police is that a woman, with intention of destroying the evidence of shame, packed her infant's body in salt.

A GRAVEYARD IN A GARRET

New York, Dec. 19---An anonymous correspondent wrote to the sanitary headquarters that there was a small graveyard in the loft of a house at No. 11 West Third street; that heaps of moldering human skulls and bones that had been there for years, and no one knew anything about them.
The writer asks the authorities to find out how they got there.

Investigation revealed the story to be true, and the matter was turned over to the police. A visit to the loft showed the place filled with skeletons and human bones in all states of moldiness. The bones were sent to a morgue, but for now the case remains a mystery.

A small volcano has been discovered in Steubenville, Ohio.
Several years ago a fill was made near the upper blast furnace, composed of slack coal, cinder and hot slag from the furnace. A wagon passing over the road broke through, revealing a smoldering fire which is now known to have been burning for three years.
Several parties have noticed smoke at times coming from fissures in the earth. The fire had about reached the surface, leaving only a crust of earth and slag to hold up that portion of the street.
