dubbed "mummy eyes," and the jewelers set
about getting them ready for tho market.
They were amber colored, opaque and luster-less.

Why Corn Itroad is .Scarce.
Corn broad, once a stapio and common ar
iice of food, is coming to be regarded as n
luxury. Not only is this true of tho north,
but also of the south, where Indian corn was
u one time preferred to wheat for making
bread. A Georgian sai l in explanation cf
the chai-.ge: "'Tho complaint that a really
prime article of corn or Indian meal cannot
i.o obtained in towns and cities is general. A
country miller ti'.i me that he could not pro
duce good, cornnical by the use of modern
grinding machinery. The softest and best
ilavored meal is inado from new corn. This
1 ho proprietors at largo mills refuse to grind.
To get good cornmeal the grinding must be
dotio slowly, and it must bo given time to
cool properly before it is moved. This cau
only be done in country mills, and the supply
is far behind the demand.
'Eesides this, cornmeal cannot be kept long
without deteriorating. It is not in the matter
of bread making alone, however, that corn
meal has fallen into disuse; it is less used for
cooking purposes generally, ihe greac in
crease in wheat growing and tho improve
ments ia the flour making line, together with
the high price of corn and low price cf wheat,
is iu pait responsible for this state of things.
Eew persons now use com for economical
reasons, iiany, however, would prefer it for
a considerable portion of the time, if a good
article could be procured. The southern corn
is preferred toad others, although the Ciut
corn raised in New England is an excellent
article; but it requires a large amount of
cooking. toni taat grows in tne frame
ions of the west is tho most undesirable,
and as this represents most of tho cereal that
is fcrjsale it is not used to any great extent."
