Washington, March 23.—Now comes
the "rag picking millionaire."
Estimates, compiled from govern
ment reports on "waste reclamation"
in the United States, indicate that over
400 millionaires have been developed
from pursuit of "any rags, any bonks,
any bottles today?"
Rag picking and collection of tin
cans, scrap Iron, -old paper, wire, rub
ber and all discarded metals represent
an annual turnover of over $2,000,000,
000, according to incomplete estimates.
And all kinds of classes are "getting
into tile rag game," because of its
monetary attractions. The waste rec

Illinois Woman Says She Had
Suffered for Thirty Long
Years—Declares She Is Now
Well and Happy.
"I have actually gained 27 pounds by
taking Tanlac, and while I am now
past 79 years of age, I declare I don't
'.feel that old by 40 years/' was the
remarkable statement made by Mrs.
Mary E. Burr of Bradford» Illinois, R.
R. F. D. No. 1, recently.
Mrs. Burr relates some very trying
experiences of Civil war days, one of
which was the loss of her first hus
hand, who was killed in the great 4MB»
flict. At the close of the war she
moved to- Illinois with her parents, hi
inn "old covered wagon," and remained
ja widow until November of last year,
when she was happily married again,
becoming the wife of a prosparou#
farmer of Bradford.
"Those Civil war days certainly war «
durk ones," said Mrs. Burr* "and If I
should live to bo twice as old as I am
now I cculd never forget the terrible
suffering and sorrow so màny had to
go through. I feel sure the nervous
strain and hardships that cam© to nie
was what caused my health to break
down later on. But while I have seen
the dark and bitter side of life I have
also enjojyed the greater part of it.
I had always been blessed with fairly
good health until about 30 years ago,
when all of a sudden I Just seemed to
collapse almost completely. This was
about the hardest trial of my life, as I
had filways been in the habit of get
ting outdoors, raising chickens, gather
ing fruit and doing "lota of outdoor
"I commenced first to be bothered
with my stomach. Every little bit I
ate would soiir and form a sort of gas |
which caused me the most awful »Of
fering. This gas would press against I
my heart, and I would be so short of ]
breath for hours that I could not walk.
If I even tried to walk I would get so I
dizzy, weak and trembly that I would
lose my balance. My nerves got in
such a bad shape that I could hardly
sleep, and would just roll and toss all
night long. I just couldn't stand a bit
of noise. Just the chickens cackling
would almost drive me distracted. I
had no appetite and what little I did
eat caused me so much pain that I
would almost die. I kept going down
until I was almost a complet« wreck.
I had lost so much in weight th&t none
of my clothes fitted me, and 1 wu so I
weak that I could hardly walk across j
the room, let alone do my work. |mT

almost like a miracle. I have token 12

I can cat Just anything without the
