ENTERPRISE ARCHIVE PHOTO County Hen Follows Production Example t-- A Donley County hen, notlinches in circumference. The to be out done by tales of great|other way round, the egg mea- things done in other lines of/sured an even six inches. The endeavor in the county, followed the example set by her keep- ers and presented by her owner, Charles Wright, with an egg that is up to all expectations of the most optimistic producer, Mr. wright brought the fruit into the office last Saturday and left it with us for display. The egg is of fairly uniform shape with a slight ridge near the center of the prod- uct. Measured the long way, the egg is seven and seven-eighths Edwin Eanes has one partic, ular hen .in his flock that layed a very unusual egg this past week. It appeared to be an extra large egg which usually has two yolks. He brought it to town and gave it to Homer Estlack, telling him that he could enjoy a double yolk egg for breakfast. When Mrs. Estlack broke the egg, which measured 8 inches over-end and 71,4 inches on circumference, a perfectly normal hard shell egg of average size popped out into the bowl. When she broke this egg it has only one yolk, but there was equal to two egg whites in the large egg surround- ing the hard shell egg on the inside. Estlack said he had been cheated for he likes the egg yolk much better than one with three egg whites. The oddity of the egg made up the difference though. Donley County Leader, May 14, 1953 Thugs Rob Lelia Lake Store Thursday Night But Leave No Clues The first break-in for this area in quite some time was reported last Friday morning when it was found that thugs had pried open the front door of the Webb Grocery some time during the night. The total loss to the Grocery business and the Lelia Lake Post Office, which is located in the same building, was over $150, Sheriff Truett Beh- rens reported. Included in the loss was over a hundred dollars in cash, 25 cartons of cigarettes and 2 boxes of cigars, he added. Sherriff Behrens stated that it looks like the work of a profes- sional as the robbers were very careful not to leave any clues. The Donley County Leader, November 26, 1953 Clarendon should have a nice shady, public park. With a little expense this could be had in connection with an audito- rium and boating lake. Who will push the matter? The Industrial West, July 4, 1902 egg weighted four ounces, one quarter of a pound. The News force has had severe discussion as to which one of them would take the egg home and have it cooked for their morning meal. So far, it is to be seen in the News office and will probably be beyond the stage where consumption is pos- sible in a few days The Clarendon News, June 7, 1928 Join us in celebrating our freedom this Independence Day by praying for those who are serving our country in the U.S. and abroad.
