WHY DOES BOSTON PREFER
BROWN EGGS TO WHITE?
Why do the residents of the Back
Bay district of Boston, the intellectual
center of the universe, prefer brown
eggs to white; while the New York
millionaire must have 'em white or
not at all ? It cannot be because the
brown egg is more of a brain stimu
lant than a white one, because it is gen
erally conceded that the New York
financial magnate is no moron, al
though his thinking machinery may
not work along exactly the same lines
as that of the highbrow Bostonese, and
if the brown egg made him smarter
than the white one he would insist on
having that color.
The merits of the dispute between
Boston and New York are worrying
some of the most profound scholars of
the country, and even the federal de
partment of agriculture is giving the
question some thought, but it is not
worrying E. N. Purcell, of the Purcell
Produce company, of O’Neill, at all.
Mr. Purcell is supplying each com
munity with its particular tint of eggs
at the rate of several carloads each
week and he says that the preference
for color is merely a display of ar
“The brain food value of the egg is
determined by the soil and climate of
the district in which it is produced,”
says Mr. Purcell, “and these things
also have much to do with the ap
pearance of the egg when it reaches
the market, and appearance helps to
make the price.”
The best trade of both Boston and
New York demand eggs of cleanly ap
pearance, uniform size and good, ac
cording to Mr. Purcell, and it is be
cause Holt county and the count! y
wef , if here supplies more of these
iqtwutids than any other district of ihe
state that the Purcell Produce c nr.
pany has recently removed its head
ouarters and plant from Scribner to
O'Neill. The concern is one of the
largest in the country in its line of
business *rd its location in O’Neill
will be of decided financial benefit to
the community. It dealers directly with
the important markets of the east and
west coasts and is not a commission
concern. The company also handles
live poulirj of all kinds, shippi ’.g ia
carload lets several times a wees;. The
i'urcell con pany at present is located
n: iht Gaughenbaugh mills b'ld'bpg
and in due time, as the business de
mands will erect buildings of its own
along the tracks. Frank Youngkin, one
of the partners in the company, has
been in the city, in active charge of
operations since the first of the month.
