DOES RUSHING EGG BUSINESS

W. M. BRYAN, the North Walnut Street merchant, did a brisk business in egg buying Saturday afternoon until he discovered his egg box was not filling up, and also three little colored chaps were doing most of the selling. Ranging themselves around the box in which the eggs were kept, each would watch his chance and place the fruit in his pocket, go out the front door and re-enter the side door and resell the eggs to Mr. BRYAN, sometimes for cash and again taking the amount out in trade. The trick was worked off and on nearly the entire afternoon before Mr. BRYAN happened to notice anything unusual in the same boys having so many eggs to sell. Catching one before he reached the door, his pockets were searched and more eggs on their round for resale were found, and this broke up the merry game. The boys fled.
