PICKING OUT BAD EGGS IN A MICHIGAN TROUT HATCHERY Many millions of lake-trout eggs are here incubated, and the trays containing the eggs have to be carefully examined daily in order to remove the dead ones, which, if left in con tact with those that are sound, would impair their vitality or communicate disease to them. The "deads" are picked out with tweezers by a body of trained girls temporarily employed for this purpose. A FISH-DISTRIBUTING CAR BEING LOADED FOR A TRIP There are more than 6,0oo,o0o farms in the United States. If there were a fish pond on every farm and each family took only three pounds of fish a week, more than a billion pounds of extra food a year would be secured, releasing a corresponding amount of other meat for city consumption, and consequently having a reflex upon the high cost of living.
