h T tH E naval stores industry is one
of the oldest industries in the
United States, deriving its i
name from the fact that in the I
early days pitch from pine I
trees was commonly used to make I
wooden vessels water-tight. The term I
has persisted to this day, though the i
products long ago found other and
more important uses.
The turpentiJiing of pine timber be- 1
gan in New England with the "pitch,"
or yellow pine, of that region, but it I
was in North Carolina that the first i
extensive development of the naval i
store% Industry occurred. The records i
show that from 1768 to 1770 the av
erage exports of naval stores to Eng
land included 88,111 barrels of crude
turpentine, 20,646 barrels of pitch and
88,366 barrels of tar. Most of the
crude was shipped to England for dis
tillation through the ports of W'il
mington and Newbern.
The supplanting of the iron retort
by the copper still in 1834' greatly
Increased the output of volatile ol
ind gave much impetus to the indus
try. However, previous to 1844 not
over one-half of the production in
North Carolina was distilled at home.
Then, because of the poor market for
Mrin, the stills were transferred from
the ports to the woods, and a heavy
onslaught upon long-leaf pine forests
of the south began.
North Carolina reached its nnxi
frm in naval stores production in
187J'S(0, with an exportation of 6,279-,
2l- illons of turpentine, and 663,967
barrel.3 of resin. A comparison of
thip great exportation with a total pro
duIon in North Carolina in 1908 of
732,000 zallons of turpentine -and 131,
000 barrels of rosin to-lls th-e story of
fhe exhaustion of the long-leaf pine in
thajt state. South Carolina attained
Its maximum output of naval stores
in 1882, only go years after fthat of
North NP1 a. * T' invasion -of new

fpi to the front a fewyears later, but

-~ le ing forests to their southern lim
its, urpntining swung to the west
war4 across Mississippi, Louisiana
and Texas, the latter state havinig be
come a considerable producer only
within the last seven years.
Until recently naval stores were en
tlirely produced by one of thle crudest
and most destructive systems or for
e-st exploitation ever dlevised. (Great
damage by fire and storm has always
followed the turpentine box. Thou
sands of acres of splendid long-leaf
pine forests have been abatndlonmed andl
dentroyed after three or font- years of
turpentining, and the valuable timber

uitfalo from the western plains. The

By taking Lydia. E. Pinkbam's
The following letter fiwm Mrs.

It is for women to submit to the
dangers of a surgical operation when
It may be avoided by taking Lydia

She was fourweeks in the hospital

Here is her own statement.

of recent ,cures which I have mad<
by the use of the Cuticura Rtemedies
e Last August, Mr. of this cit:
n came to may omlce, troubled with
rsevere skin-eruption. It was dermatiti:
,in its worst form. It started with
slight empsition and1( would affect mos
tlparts of is body, thighs, elbowf
chest, back .and abdomen-and woul<
terminate fu .little pustules. The itch~
.l ig and burnhag was dreadful and h<
would almost tear his skin apart, try
sing to get relief. I recommended al
-the various treatments I could thinl
tof and he spent about fifteen dollari
.on prescriptions, but nothing seeme<
to help him.
"In the meantime my wife, whi
was continually suffering with a sligh
skin trouble and who had been try
ing different prescriptions and meth
0(ds with my assistance, told1 me shi
was going to get some of the Cut icuri
Remedies and give them a fair trial
lHut as I did not know much aboui
Cuticura at. that time I was doubtfu
whether it would help her. 1Her ski
would thicken, break and bleed, es
r'ecially on~ t-he fingers, wrists an<
Iarms. I could do nothing to reliev<
e her permanently. When she first ar

watch him serve a salad was to watch
an artist at work. To hear his sub
dued accents was a lesson in the art
of voice production. He never slipped,
lie never smiled, and his mutton-chop
whiskers marked him as one of the
old and faithful stock. But one even
ing, to the surprise of his master, lie
showed unaccountable signs of nerv
ousness. When the chicken came on,
he confused it with the pheasant. He
served everything in the wrong order,
made blunder after blunder, and put
a final touch to his shame by upset
ting the salt over the only super
stitions member of the party. Then,
at last, when the ladies had retired
to the drawing room, he touched his
master on the shouler. "I beg your
pardon, sir," he said in a respectful
undertone, "but could you manage to
spare ine now? My house is on fire."
