One would think that when eggs
are selling at three cents apiece they
would be picked up so closely that
a bad egg would be an impossibility,
but it is not so. Many housekeepers
find bad eggs among their purchase.
This is explained by the practice of
people who use incubators for hatch
ing chickens in making Inspection of
the eggs after they have been in the
machine about a week, and extract
ing those that are not fertile. These
nauseous eggs are then put in with
fresh ones and sent to the store. Of
course none but an unscrupulous old
skinflint would impose upon the pub
lic in that way.

In the current number of The Psy
chological Clinic Dr. Llghtner Wlt
mer, Professor of Psychology at the
University,' reports the results of
tests made on a chimpanzee at the
Psychological Laboratory of the Uni
versity. Prof. Wltmer believes that
the anthropoid apes have an Intelli
gence far beyond that which they
have hitherto been supposed to pos
sess. He has obtained from Borneo
a orangoutang under two years of
age which he and Dr. Wm. H. Bur
ness, who brought the orangoutang
from Borneo, are training as a psy
chological experiment. His interest
in the study of the mental intelli
gence of the apes led him to Investi
gate Peter, a chimpanzee who is be
ing exhibited this winter on the Keith
circuit of theatres.
Peter was put through many of the
tests which Dr. Wltmer uses for the,
study of backward chidren. He per
formed many of these tests in a
very satisfactory manner. He was
able to string beads the first time he
tried it. He put. pegs in the ordinary
kindergarten pegging board. He
opened and closed a very difficult
lock. He uses hammer and screw
driver and distinguishes without any
mistakes between nails and screws.
A peculiar kind of hammer was giv
en to him in order to fool him, but
Peter was not fooled. He felt both
ends of the hammer and used the
flat end Instead of the round end.
Showing his initiative and general
intelligence, Peter got away during
the tests from those who were watch
ing him and darted for a washstand,
quickly turned the faucet and put
his mouth to the spigot and got a
drink before he was snatched away
by his 'trainers. Peter understands
language and follows verbal Instruc
tions without signs. He is able to
say "mama" and Dr. Wltmer taught
him In five minutes' time to make the
sound of "p." The most remarkable
performance was making the letter
"W" on the blackboard, in which ho
imitated Dr. Wltmer's movements
exactly and reproduced a fair
copy of the letter. The conclu
sions drawn from the tests are that
the ape could be trained to show

Ho goes a long way to Justify the
reports of thoso persons whom
Roosevelt and others cair 'nature

gence bridges the gap which was sup
posed to exist between the minds of
the lower animals and the mind of

tribution of great value to animal

In the same number of the Clinic
Dr. O. P. Corman, Associate Supt. of
Public Schools, reports the educa
tional results in school progress of
children In large and small classes
containing under 40 pupils, medium
sized classes containing from 40 to
49 pupils, and large classes contain
ing 50 or over. Dr. Corman'a con
clusions are that classes of medium
size make the best showing and the
large classes do not fall much below
small or medium sized classes. In
the grammar grades the larger the
class the better is the promotion rec
ord. The results were obtained from
the examination of the records ot
300 classes. In good behavior also,
the larger classes had as high a rat
ing as the small casses and a higher
rating than classes of mediu ize.
