Tears ago when the first frosts had come Connecticut people went out to pick the bunches of bnyberries to make the pale green wax candles which when burning gave out the aromatic •roell of the leaves that the pickers crushed in pulling off. We no longer pick bayberric* for company candles for the v, inter time. Except ft few romantic souls who gather berries enough to make a candle or two for olrl memories, a few faddists jvho want to try to make bayberry candles by some discovery or other In a. magazine and some stanch old New EnglumU'rs who love to get out in the pastures on a crisp fall day—these are all who gather the bayberries now. Left to themselves, the clumps of boshes have spread out and in some cases overrun whole pastures. In some parts of Connecticut the bushes have grown very tall. In Branford, on the coast, there are almost bayberry trees, as many can be found growing along the highways ten feet tall and some even taller. These bayberries must be very old. You cannot help wondering how many crops have been picked off them in years past. As early as 1717 the town records show that the gathering of bayberries• on the highways and common was forbidden before Sept. 15. A fine of 10 shillings for each violation was the penalty. It appears that the wax from the berries was used in making a blacking and a salve and that bayberry wax continued an article of trade In Branford down to the last fifty years. Human nature being about the same one century to another, there was probably In 1717 a great complaining of people who picked the berries "before they were half ripe" or "got up mornings before anybody else had a chance;" hence the regulation and the fine. But what a breathless, hurried bayberry picking it must have been the morning of Sept. 15!—Hartford Cou- raiit LADIES WANTED— To^ Make Aprons. We pay $3.50 per [dozen. No cost to get job.
