back into the water. But they came

Health Qualities of Cranberries
That all may know their real merits we give below an
alysis of this most delicious fruit, furnished us by Mr. H.
W. Wiley, chief of the bureau of chemistry, Washington,

Insoluble matter 4.64
Acid, calculated as mallo . . . 2.77
deducing sugar as Invert sugar 1.90
Sucorose. cane sugar 0.10
Above analysis shows that' cranberries contain acids, -which, bas
ing converted into alkaline carbonates in the blood, help to purify
and ward oft the rheumatic tendency. They also aid digestion, clear
complexion and are harmless to the most delicate stomach.
Cranberries eaten dally will frequently ward off bilious attacks.
They should be eaten freely at this time of the year.
