THE STUBBORNNESS OF MARY ANN BARKER,
(■ontiiuic.l from page -'4.]
down on the ground. 1 \vii.s most sciireil to doatli,
but I sat down, and the bull just circled around
and snuffed. Then he went for Abner, and he sat
down too. Then I worked myself up nearer to
Abner, but I was afraid to get up on my feet.
Abner said that as long as we squatted on the



ground the bull wouldn't touch us. He said he
learned it of the cowboys out w-est. We kept edg-
ing over toward the side of the pasture, but it
was slow work, for it's a twenty acre lot, and
stony at that. Abner had brought a hoe with him,
and he said he believed he could give the bull a
lesson with it, but I told him the man with the
hoe had no chance, and he might as well be a
brother to the ox at once. Then we laughed, and
it was really as ridiculous as anything could be.
Then he asked where was Mr. Percy, and hadn't
we been out walking, and I replied that I preferred
my own company when I went berrying. Then
he said he guessed he'd better be going, and he got
up, and the bull came for him, and I screamed,
and he sat down again. Then I missed my pail,
which I'd dropped when I started to run, and I
said Ma Barker'd miss her berries, and Abner said
he'd give me peaches instead, only, he said, "They're
clingstones, and I .s'pose you don't want them."

"I like clingstones," I owned, "they've got
the best flavor," and then I cried. Then Abner
jumped up and ran to me, and I screamed again
for him to sit down, and we sat there an awful
long time, until the bull got tired and went oif.
I don't believe he meant any harm anyway, liecause
I saw Abner laugh.

Then Abner went home with me, after getting
a big basket of peaches, and I told Ma Barker
that I'd brought clingstones instead of berries, and
she just looked at Abner and me and smiled and
never said a word. IMary Ann.

TO OUI? GUESTS AND VISITOI?S:




Visitors to some of the
Leading Spas of the world are
sometimes disappointed by be-
ing refused admission to build-
ings wherein the packages are
prepared, or if admitted, are
often surprised at the lack of
care exercised in the prepara-
tion of a package, which
should be faultlessly clean.

We speak of this with no
thought of arousing deroga-
tory comparisons; but because
of a just pride in our success-
ful efforts to prepare a pack-
age as pure as it is possible
for science and care to accom-
plish. I



THE POLAND SPRING MOUSE.



The Process is both Interesting and Instructive,



To witness which we invite
the closest inspection. The
preliminary process of soaking
all containers in a strong solu-
tion of lye, then rinsing thor-
oughly with rotary water
brushes (generally considered
sufficiently clean ) is supple-
mented by other mechanical
cleaners, invented for our sole
use.

Each bottle is then ren-
dered germ proof by a most
thorough and unique process
of sterilization and pasteuriza-
tion.

To prevent any particles
of dust or other foreign sub-
stance dropping within, each
bottle is inverted until ready
to be filled and immediately
corked.

.-^^e?^*'



And exported direct from San
Felieu de Guixols in the Cata-
lonian Province of Spain (whence
comes the highest quality of cork-
wood the world produces) to
Poland Spring.

The package is then sealed
with protecting labels and trade-
marks (and all are cautioned to
see that the seal is intact, and the
cork branded) and goes forth into
the world perfectly prepared, with
all its original purity and peculiar
characteristics.
