May be an image of text that says 'H. McMann, Fur Merchant, Milltown, Me. Established 1866; 141 Bear Skins. October 1, 1913. .H.MGMANK VARICTY SToEr'

Bears were sought after for many uses historically. If you were eating meat at a table it was likely bear and they rendered down bear fat to use as oil to burn in lamps, a protectant for leather and metal, etc.
