The history of the cranberry can be
told on a bit of parchment no larger
than the fruit itself, but to judge its
Interest by its length would be like
ranking t,he berry's importance by its
weight. The cranberry, to begin with
the day of its christening, was so
named ^because its sponsors fancied
that Its bud resembled a crane, and,
in trust, just before the bud expands
into the perfect flower with stem, ca
lyx and petals, it resembles the neck,
head and bill of that ungainly bird
Hence it was originally dubbed "crane
berry," popularized into cranberry.
Like all families of importance in
the agricultural race, the cranberry
has an imposing genealogy its Euro
pean forbears belonged to the clan of
the vaccinium oxycoccus how long
the American branch, or the macrocap
pon, has been established here nobody
knows,, but It began to attract atten
tion about 100 years ago. Its acquaint
ance was first cultivated in the Cape
Cod region of MassachusettsNew
England has ever been ready to pay
respect to ancestry.
It gradually worked its way out of
obscurity until to-day the cranberry
occupies a place of no mean industrial
In many countries and even so near
as Scotland the pig has served the
purpose of a beast of draft, and has
actually been harnessed to the plow in
company with cows and horses. In
Scotland also early in the last cen
tury pigs were sometimes made to
serve as chargers and proved most
docile mounts.
The homing instinct is strongly de
veloped in the pig. Instances not in
frequently occur of pigs finding their
way back to farms whence they have
been conveyed. There is a record of
two pigs homing nine miles, and cross
ing the Thames to boot, to their old
farm, whence they had been driven
to Reading market and bought by a
local gentleman on the previous day.
At one point on their homeward jour
ney where two roads met the twain
were observed "putting their noses
together as if in deep consultation."
About 1815 a London gentleman cre
ated a sensation by driving a four-in
hand of pigs through the streets, and
thirty years later an old farmer
caused amusement to a great crowd
in the market place at St. Albans by
"If you want'to know the real soul
of a man you have to see him When
he's ill," says a trained nurse. "There's
nothing quite so abject and piti
able as the average sick man. He's a
mere baby, only that a baby bears
pain better than he does. I'd like to

can't. He's a great big six-footer and
he never had a pain since he cut his
teeth till appendicitis caught him
about a month ago. They brought him
to a private sanitarium on a stretcher
and while I was getting him ready for
the surgeons his mind was about
equally divided between fear that he
was going to die and annfiety over a
pasteboard box he had with him.
"He begged me to put it somewhere
where it would be safe. I asked him
what he had in it and he said it was
something he'd want in a day or two
if he lived. I finally set it outside the
window of his room on the ledge, for
he said it ought to be kept where it
was cold. He didn't mention it again
tor two days, his attention being
otherwise engaged. The third night
was windy and the box blew off the
For weeks Shep, a blooded Scotch
collie dog, waited at a lonely station

P. Dorian of West Eighth avenue, Den

pet was homeless, took a railroad trip
to Virginia to get pftssession of the
dog and bring him to Colorado. The
two have never been separated since.
Dorian was at the Union depot last
liight, waiting for a train to take him
to South Platte, Neb., where he is to
do some contract work for the Union
Pacific railroad. With him was the
dog Shep. i

According to Linnaeus, "the hog is
more nice in the selection of his vege
table diet than any of our other do
mesticated herbivorous animals.''
Thus in one respect the pig may be
said to be an epicure. Linnaeus states
that the animal will eat seventy-twc
plants, as against the goat's 449, the
sheep's :?S7, the cow's 276 and the

"There never was a dog more glad.
He jumped and frolicked, despite the
fact that he was lean for the want of

he dragged me in tile direction of the

of this, however, could only be ascer
tained at the cost, we fear, of the
creature's life, for its armor-like shell
would make an investigation of its
internal economy hazardous, if not
impossible. T*he animal appears to be
about four months old, and measures
some 'two by one and thee quarter
inches, the shell being possibly a trifle
larger than would ordinarily be the
case. The two heads are nearly of
the same size, and as far as can be
seen are perfect in all respects. Its
other visible members do not exceed
the usual number, and it is probably
not incorrect to conclude that the mul
tiplicity is confined to the heads.

had conceived the idea of propelling
vehicles by steam power. The de

closely that of the steam railroad. The

Prejudiced Against Typewriters.
The late Associate Justice Gray of
the Supreme court was very eccentric.
Among his prejudices was a deep and
lastiing aversion for a typewriter. That
machine did not come into general use
until Justice Gray was an old man and
he never became reconciled to it. It
made him furious if a lawyer filed
with him a motion or other court pa
per typewritten. He invariably re
turned it with a brusque request that
the matter to be submitted be written
in longhand. He bad a stenographer
at his disposal, but never utilized his
services, as he wrote all his letters as
well as his opinions. He notified the
clerk of.the Supreme court not to send
him any typewritten^paper, no matter
how i^portahtlt mightVbe. He never
neglected an opportnuity to denounce
typewriters. The result of his hatred
for these machines was that, he did
