able crop over vast areas of otherw ise
worthless land in this country. Inci

sands of persona during the canning
In the southeastern part of Maine It
a great tract of 150,000 acres, known as
the "blueberry barrens." which Is
burned over at frequent intervals to
get rid of the scrub and to facilitate
the harvesting of bins berries. The
land it leased for half a cent a qunrt,
psld to the owner, for all blueberries
picked, and part of the crop it shipped
fresh to 1'ortUind and Iloslon. Most
of the berries, however, Po to the can
neries, one of which has a dally capac
ity of 600 bushels and an average an
nual output of 8.300 cases r:f fwndozen
cans each. The yearly product of this
one cannery is not fur from $15,000
worth of blueberries.
Ilefore the days of canning the bar
rens were considered common prop
erty, and people came .VI or even 100
miles for a week's oiifing, to ga'hir
blueberries for their own ute and for
sale to msrchanls of neightiorlngcitiet
and vlllaget. .Now, however, the col
lecting of the crop it done mainly by
eompanira which employ large Hum
bert of pickers, and about $:10.0IK10 it
paid to these plrkertearh year. Ilur
lug the picking season from 1,000 to
1,000 women and children are thus en
gaged. From tha figures here given it will
be seen that the wild bluelierry It a
much more valuable fruit than it pop
ularly supposed, representing as It
does an Industry of no small Impor
tance. The total eanned product of the
blueberry barrens In IMW was about
50.0000 cases, worth $2.20 a rase; so
that the value of the output for this
ertlon alone was more than fioonou.
Northern Michigan produces great
quantities of blueberries, and Immense
tracts In other parts of the country are
well adapted for the prnduc'lon of the
fruit. There are eeveral recognized
varieties, the "high bush" blueberry
being distinguished not only by the
site and quality of Its fruit hut also
by the beauty of its flowers.

first trolley car that came whiriug
aloug, and so I says to my sou Jim:
"Jim, we've got to experiment a lit

Left see what w ran rig up."
Jim was agreed, and so it happened
that feller came along next day with
a portable engine. I told him w hat wat
wanted, and we was still talking, when
the o'.d bull jumped te fence Into the
road, lie had his e)e 4111 that engine,
and he knew it was a good chance to
show off. The man would have to run
away If he could, being afraid of an
upset, but there was no chance, and
he took the middle of thi road and let
'vr rip. owu went the bull's head and
up went his tail, and he charged that
engine head-on. There was a smash
to e heard half a tulle away, and the
engine rose up on its hind wheels and

was a close call."

showing the figure of a yoemnn hold

leads me to Infer that umbrellas wero
known In England even In the early
Heck, as quoted In the Draper's Dic
tionary, asserts that at the time that
Stephen usurped the crown of England
(twelfth century) umbrellas were In
common use among the English. The
first mention of the timbrelln In Eng
lish literature Is In Elorlo's "World of
Wonders" (l.lllHi, where it is described
as a "kind of round fan or shadowing
that they use to ride with In summer
In Itnly; a little shade."
In ItSTitl an umbrella was exhibited In
the "Museum Traileseniitliiiiuiii; or,
Collection of Itnritlcs Preserved at
Hon I ti I.uilllieth, Near Ioiiilon, by John
Tradeseant," which was known as
"one of the wonders of the nrk."
Ill the church of Ciirtmell, In Lanca
shire, England, there was preserved
until n few years ago an umbrella snld
to be over .UK J years old, which WUI
usul chiefly lo protect the host.
Itcferenees to the umbrella arc to be
found also In mount's "(ilossogniphln"
(1H74) and Phillips' "New Worldc. of
Words" (HITS). In the first the refer
ence rends: "Umbrcllo, n fashion of
round and broad fans, wherewith the
Indians (and from them our great ones)
preserve themselves from the heat of
the sun, and hence any little shadow,
fan or other thing wherewith the wom
en guard their faces from the sun."
The second runs: "Umbrcllo, a screen
against the sun's hint, used chlelly by
the Spaniards, among whom It Is known
by the niitne qtiltasolu."
The Imaginative Dean Rwlft In tho
"Tale of n Tub" (WW)) depicts Jack, nn
ever resourceful type, making use of n
parchment copy of his father's will tin
a nightcap when he went to bed and as
an umbrella In rnltiy weather. Did
the worthy Ilanwny tnke his cue from
Ibis or from Kersey, according to whom
the umbrella was a "broad fan or
screen commonly used by women to
shelter them from rain?" The last ref
erence, tnndu In 17011, Is the first men
tion of It as a protector from the rnln.
Later Ilalley, who In his dictionary
(I'll?) railed It a parasol, defined It as
"a sort of small canopy to keep off the
Hmall, light umbrellas came Into
fashion among the Indies of the I'rciieli
court In W75, and these were carried
by nttelidaiits. lllchclct tells us that
they were made of oilcloth or leather
and had ribs of whalebone. A century
later I hey found favor with the men,
who carried red umbrellas, with edges
fringed with gold lace.
The precise date when Jonas Ilan
wny, who died In 17SU, Intro, lure, I the
umbrella Into England Is not recorded
In any of the encyclopedias 1 have at
hand, but they nil state that he was
popularly known ns Its Introducer.
With the Dutch, ns with the Indian
grnudees, the umbrella was tl rut an at
tribute of dignity, and well It might
be, for the prices paid for them nt The
Hague III KIM) ranged from JT.'i lo f I Ji 1
each. The Dutch colonists who settled
nt tho Cape ef Hood Hope were not
alow to Insist 011 preserving the dignity
of the umbrella, for ltyk mi n Tulbitgh,
governor of Cape Colony In 17.VJ, en
acted that "No one less In rank than
n Junior merchant or those ninoiig the
cllltctis of equal rank, and the wives
and daughters only of those who are or
have been members of nny council
shall venture to use umbrellas, nuil
those who are less In rank than mer

vScience is the foe of sickness. It is fighting sickness in all its forms
and coiKiuering it. Wherever there is a widely prevalent disease of special
malignity science enters the field against it. It was the prevalence of
womanly diseases which led Dr. Pierce to investigate the cause of ailments
peculiar to women, and to seek a means of cure which might be put within
the reach of every woman in the land. The result of Dr. Pierce's scien
tific studies and experiments was the production of Dr. Tierce's Favorite
Prescription, a medicine with a record of cures of womanly ills which is
without a parallel in the history of medical science. The fact of these
cures is attested by hundreds of thousands of women. The permanence
of the cures is proven by grateful women who after a lapse of years write
in such terms as these : "It is now several years since I used Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. I have had no return of my trouble. I am a
healthy, happy woman, thanks to Dr. Pierce and his medicines." There
are people who say that such cures are imaginary. The women who are
cured don't think so. They know there was nothing imaginary about the
backache, weakness and nervousness from which they suffered. They
know that there was nothing imaginary about the scales which told con
stantly of a loss of flesh, nothing imaginary about the mirror which
showed the hollowed cheek and dulled eyes. Above all they know that
there was nothing imaginary about the bills they paid for medicines and
doctors without receiving any benefit.
There is also nothing imaginary to them about the result of the use of
"Favorite Prescription." No more pain, no more backache or headache.
No more nervousness and sleeplessness. Tlrat's not imaginary. And
there's one solid fact which there is no getting away from because it is
written in solid flesh and can be weighed in ounces and pounds, and that
is the gain of lost flesh which so commonly follows the use of " Favorite
Prescription," together with the restoration of a dear complexion and a
"I had female trouble for eight years," writes Mrs. L. J. Dennis, of 838 East Col
lege Street, Jacksonville, Ills. "Words cannot express what I suffered. sought
relief among the medical profession and found none; Friends urged me to try Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. When I commenced taking this medicine I weighed
ninety-five pounds. Now I weigh one hundred and fifty-six pounds more than I ever
weighed before. I was so bad I would lie from day to day and long for death to come
and relieve my suffering. I had internal inflammation, a disagreeable drain, bearing
down pain, and such distress every month but now I never have a pain do all my own
work, and am a strong ami healthy woman."
" In the spring of 1900 I liecame very ill," writes Mrs. Alviena Scltoltz, of Lake
Washington, LeSueur Co., Minn.; "my back was very weak and ached so that I could
do no work at all, so I was obliged to take to my lied. I wrote to Dr. Pierce and
lie sent me a very kind letter and advised me to take his ' Favorite Prescription' and
'r.olden Medical Discovery.' I took six bottles of each and am a well woman now.
I cannot tay enough in favor of I)r Pierce's medicines."
" I wrote to you for advice, February 4th, 1S96," writes Mrs. Loma Halstead, of Clare
more, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. "I was racking with pain from the back of
my head down to my heels. Had hemorrhages for weeks at a time, and was unable to
sit up for ten minutes at a time. You answered my letter, advised me to use your
valuable medicines, viz: Dr. Pierre's Favorite Prescription and 'Golden Medical Dis
covery,' and ' Pleasant Pellets,' also gave advice about injections, bath and diet To
my surprise, in four months from the time I began your treatment I was a well woman
and have not had the backache since, and now I put in sixteen hours a day at hard
Dr. Tierce's Favorite Prescription is a scientific remedy for the cure of
womanly ills. It restores regularity and dries the drains which weaken
women. It heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness.
It is invaluable as a tonic for weak, worn-out, run-down women, restoring
them to perfect health and strength.
Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Tierce by letter, free. All
letters are held as strictly private and sacredly confidential. Address
