Before that the supply of cranberries
came from the wild boshes in the
swamps of that state and Cape Cod.
just as the huckleberry crop is oataineil
to-day. Not more than one-tenth of the
quantity of cranberries that are now
sent to market was put on sale when
John Webb began his experiments En
1857, and the price was so high that
only tlie wealthy could enjoy cranberry
sauce with their turkey. Webb went
to Ocean county many years ago. He
had only one leg, and for years he made
a living by picking cranberries in the
marshes .in the fall and doing
laid jobs of farm work. While
picking berries on a Small piece
of low* swamp land which he had
in some way obtained possession of in
1557. lie noticed that in places where
sand had been washed by rains from the
high ground on the edceof the swamp,
and carried down upon the peat bottom
of the marsh, the plants grew more
luxuriantly and the ben ies were larger,
of better flavor and more plentiful. He
came to the conclusion that if a few
isolated patches could be so vastly im
proved by the accidental mingling of two
kinds of soil, an entire bog could be
made highly productive by a systematic
treatment of the same kind. Acting on
his belief, the next season he made the
first known cultivated cranberry bog.
He pulled the stumps and other foreign
substances out of his small swamp,
made its peaty bottom smooth and level,
and over it spread a covering of sand
three inches deep. He cut his marsh
up into a number of oblong beds by
means of ditches at right angles
with one another. Webb's neigh
bors watched him at work on
liis bog, and the universal verdict was
that the man was crazy. He was work
ing with no precedent* to guide him, but
he was an observant and persistent man,
and the result of his work was that in
three years he had a beautiful marsh of
luxuriant and well-trained bushes, bear
ing such a burden of cranberries, not
only in size but quantity, as had never
been seen or heard of before. The re
sult of one-legged John Webb's experi
ment in cultivating cranberries soon lie
came known, and his fame spread from
the remotest cranberry marsh on Cape
Cod to the wild bogs of Wisconsin, and
his name is now a household word
wherever cranberries are grown. This
pioneer cultivator of cranberries is to
day one of the richest men in Southern
Jersey, and all his wealth came to him
through the discovery he made thirty
years ago of the efficacy of sand in soil
where the cranberry is indigenous.
There are between 5,000 and 0,000
acres of New Jersey marsh under cran
berry cultivaf-— *•■ '•*-* which is about

one-quarter oi me erauuerry-growing
area of the United States, Massachusetts
and Wisconsin being the other princi
pal growers of the fruit. A cranberry
marsh of the present day is as handsome
a plat of green things growing as the
eye could rest upon: but the rearing of
the bushes on a new bog to the age of
fruit-bearing is attended with no end of
care and toil, to say nothing of the ex
pense. (since the cultivation of cran
berries assumed the proportions of a
large and important agricultural pur
suit in New Jersey, three enemies, not
one of which assailed the bush in its
wild state, have arisen up against it— a
grass, a bnllrush and an insect. After
a new marsh or swamp has been cleared,
ditched and sanded, it is planted by
taking cuttings or slip:- from old bushes
and inserting one end of them in the
layer of sand, on the peat soil, which
is pushed closely about the slips.
Cranberry slips soon take root in
the generous peat, and begin to grow
almost immediately. They spread rap
idly over the marsh, but ' before they
have reached out their branches many
days the planter finds them surrounded
and choked by the sharp-edged, stiff
leaved, three-square grass, and its in
evitacle coadjutor, the hardy and per
sistent bull rush. The grass and the
rushes must be removed root and
branch, for which purpose curious
gouges and peculiar hoes and other im
plements have been devised. These
pestiferous weeds have to be constantly
watched and uprooted every week or so
for two seasons, so thoroughly impreg
nated does the soil seem to be with their
germs and so rapidly do they develop.
At the end of the second year the cran
berry bushes have obtained such
strength and headway that they cover
the ground all over the bog like an im
mense velvety mat of emerald, and have
choked the enterprising grass and
rushes out of existence. It is estimated
that to foster a cranberry bog to this
stage of its existence costs the owner

Cranberry bushes blossom at the be
ginning of the third season, and from
that time on the grower may expect a
visit from the web-Worm, the most
dreaded enemy of the bog. A singular
characteristic of this insect is that it
never gives warning of its coming on a
marsh. The cranberry irrower may go
to bed at night without having been
able to discover a sign of a web-worm
on his bushes, and tret up next morning
to see the mm sh look as if it were cov
ered with miniature banks of fog, and
the tops of the bushes drawn together
so tightly that a twine tied around
them could hardly make them closer.

and are what pull
the tops of the vines
together, In a day
or so the vines turn
yellow, the blos

owner of that marsh
does not make any
very large calcula
tions on profits that
year. About the Ist

xigiit. are submerged un
der five or six feet of water with which
the boss are artificially flooded. This
water is drawn off "about the middle of
May, and the bushes come to view as
fresh and green as a June clover field.
There were picked last year in the
New Jersey marshes nearly 200,000
bushels of cranberries, which were sold
at an average price of **2 a bushel. The
yield this ear will not be more than
two-thirds of last year's, but it is ex
pected that the price will be high
enough to insure as large a return to the
growers as they had from the crop of
The picking of this season's crop in
New Jersey is now at its height, and
the crop will all be gathered within the
nest ten days. The inventive genius
not only of Jersey, but of the whole
country, has taxed itself annually in
vain for ever so many years to provide
an automatic berry-picker. The har
resting of the cranberry crop of New
Jersey, and of all other places where
the cranberry is grown, is virtually in
i the hands of" the people the grower is
i forced to employ as pickers. They bully
! and harass and boycott and strike under
| the slightest provocation of their cm
i plovers. The cranberry-grower has to
; walk humbly and circumspectly about
I bis bogs or be disciplined roundly by
| the gatherers of his crop. The
j owners of cranberry marshes
.in New* Jersey distribute over
j (5,000 a day for two or three weeks dur-
I ing the picking season alone to the peo
j ple, many of whom would be otherwise
\ seeking aid from the town before spring,
1 but for some reason the pickers re
gard the growers as their natural en
j ernies, and act towards them accord
! ingly. There is a great deal of grum
! bling among them just now because the
! crop this year will be shorter than
; usual, and consequently picking will
j not last as many days as it did last year.
"The Cape Coil cranberry crop ain't
i short." said an Ocean county picker,
j who. with his family, has been earning
nearly ?15 a day for the past two weeks
on the berry marshes; "nor the Wis
consin crop ain't short. - Then why
should they shorten it on us in Jersey?
'Cause the apple crop's short. That's
the reason. The apple crop's short in
Jersey, and whenever that happens
cranberries is worth a heap more than
they are Vhen apples is plenty. The
berrygrowers know that well, and know
that a two-thirds crop in a poor apple
year is worth more than a full crop* or
bigger is in a good apple year, so they
just raise a little crop this year to give
the pickers a wipe, cause they don't
lose anything themselves by "it. but
make money by it. more likely. " Labor
ain't got no show on the berry 'bogs."

THK MANCHESTER MARTYRS.
A Great Meeting He'll in Honor
of Their Memory at Chicago.
Chicago, Nov. 23.— High up in the
organ loft of Central Music hall to-night
were suspended the names of Allen,
O'Brien and Larkin. surrounded by
broad bands of crepe, which draped to
the stage and across the pipes ofthe
great organ on either side. On either
side of the stage was a large ban
ner imprinted with the "follow
ing: "1867, Manchester Martyrs —
Allen, Larkin ami O'Brien." On the
other side was the invocation: "issr. Re
member Mitcbelstown, Lonergan. shin
nick and Casey." The occasion was the
Chicago memorial of the twentieth anni
versary of the day when the three Irish
patriots yielded up their lives at Man
chester/England, and Incidentally was
homage to the other trio of Irishmen
who fell before a recent charge of con
stabulary at Mitcbelstown, Ireland.
! Every seat in the great hall was occu
! pied early, while there stood in the
aisles a sufficient number to
swell the gathering to an audience of
3,000 persons. A large representation
of uniformed bat unarmed members of
the (71an-na-('ael and Hibernian rifles
were seated on the platform. Ex-Con
gressman John I*. Finerty presided. He
related the circumstances under which
Allen. Larkin ami O'Brien perished on
an English scaffold twenty years ago.
It was then the custom, the chairman
said, to arrest Irish leaders on Irish soil,
and in loathsome dungeons assassinate
them by slow means as they were now
attempting on William O'Brien.
In Manchester, on English soil,
thirty Irish exiles had rescued Col.
Dacey and Col. Kelly, who landed in
England from America only to be ar
rested for conspiracy. In the rescue an
I English officer was accidentally killed,
i and for this these three were "hanged.
In concluding. Mr. Fioerty said: "Let
j us send tidings of the honor we give
! these men across the waves to Ireland
\ to penetrate the gloomy dungeon of
i William O'Brien, and may liod speed
| the day when the fires of Irish venge
i ance will rush on England's tyranny
' the lire of a million volcanoes.'* At
\ this point, while the 3,000 listeners were
: in a tumult of enthusiasm, Hon. John
: K. Fitzgerald was introduced as the or
: ator of the evening. He said that the
spirit of the audience, and the numbers
present on such an occasion was a proof
j that the Irish race was worthy of free
dom. The glory of Ireland was not so
much in the past as in the not distant
future. In the nationalism of the Irish
is the hope of their race, and as a result
of recent events, the demand for separa
tion from England was stronger to-day
than ever. To-day the cry of the
i boos of Ireland, scattered 20,000,000
strong over the world, is the cry of that
brave old rebel. John Mitchell: "We
have not made peace with England, and
we never will." The great audience
! wildly echoed "never." The speaker
i here asked the question, "But why do
j we glorify these three men who were
i hanged? Why not glorify others who
• have been hanged?*" .Such a question
I had been put to him during the day.
I The audience instantly understood to
whom the question alluded, when the
; speaker continued: - "He is a poor phil-
I osopher who cannot see the distinction
It is the cause that glorifies and can

i honor to the Jewish maid who dipped
her hands in a tyrant's blood, but only
execration for Guiteau." who assassin
ated the representative of liberty." The
speaker added: "If the present move
ment in Ireland fails, what then?'*
Someone in the audience started the
J yell "dyna," but the speaker shut him
off by * proceeding with the address,
leaving the question unanswered. Mr.
Fitzgerald concluded with the declara
tion that if the British government re

Q New York, Nov. 23. The twentieth
anniversary of the execution of ' the
"Manchester martyrs was celebrated in
the large hall of Cooper Institute this
evening. There were fully 2,£03 men
and women present. The meeting was not
altogether harmonious. When Richard
Caffrey denounced those who opposed
Henry Oeorge in the late election, se
lecting Patrick Ford for special denun
ciation, there were loud protests. Sev
eral of those who protested were
promptly put out, and a company of
the Sixty-ninth regiment arose and left
the place. The confusion lasted several
minutes, and while two men were being
ejected by citizens and police matters
assumed a serii us aspect. Dr. McOlynn
also raised a mingled storm of hisses
and applause when he denounced the

A Buddhist Sacred Island Where

The little island of Pooto, one of the
Chusan group, about 150 miles from
Shanghai and 40 from Kingpo, is a

some four miles square and sacred to

the San Francisco Chronicle, some holy
disseminators of that great Oriental
creed chose this spot to retire to and
