GOOD QUALITIES OF SAGE Snvory and Salutary All the Yeai . Bound aud Liked by All , Says a Londoner. Nearly all our vegetables anil herbs appear originally to havr passed through some preliminary stage in the laboratory of the medical ical herbalist before being admit ted to the full honors of the kiteh en , writes a Londoner. The fact is not so strange as it might ai first sight appear , and its result ? have certainly been to the general advantage of mankind , for. though for the most part the old herbalist's prescriptions were of a kind neither to kill nor cm e , his investigations of the specifn qualities of plants were ot'tei useful. The ancients seem to have j regarded sage as a-herbof fust i : i j portance to the physician , and tin many traditions concerning it re fer almost entirely to thisaspecl of the plant. "Why should a mm die who has his sage in his gar den ? " was one of the maxims o the famous school of health a1 Salerno. The belief in its virtue survived through the middle ages and was handed down witl- unimpaired vitality to quite mod ern writers. The writers of the six teenth and seventeenth centuries were full of its praises , and then was hardly an ailment of mind 01 body for which sage was not pro nounced a cure or an alleviation. Thence sprung the idea that , as it was thus generally wholesome and recommended by the faculty , the housewife might prudently admit a dried winter supply to her storeroom. And so this "sov ereign herb" gradually found iff. way into the kitchen , of which it has ever since remained an indis pensable adjunct. Xot that it at once lost all its medical attri- butes. "He that would live for aye must cat sage in May , " runs the proverb. But the COOKS soon began to take broader views. They pronounced sage to be equally savory and salutary all the year round , and of special and peculiar value at the season of Michaelmas. But this is advancing matters. Even the best of things eatable have * had to overcome prejudice and slowly make their way ; and in the case of more concomitants some help from the encouraging hand j of fashion has generally been necessary. The rather inui- seus brew known as sage tea was so common a domestic medicine to our forefathers that they could not at once accept the herb in the character of a savory adjunct. But we live and learn , and the merits of sage as a modifier of cer tain i rich viands began to be ac knowledged. It seemed to have a certain sort of natural affinity with roast pork , goose and duck , and presently became the con stant attendant of these dishes. EUTfyin the eighteenth century an acknowledged authority laid it down that "as to geese and ducks , cooks should stuff them with sage shred fine , and a little pepper and salt ; and the same with a suckling pig. " WEAR ON BIG NAVY CANNON Heavy Guns in Uncle Sam's Defen ders Are Constantly Being Changed for Others. "That there is nothing excep tional in the experience of the United States navy in losing guns through wear is sliown in the fol lowing statement made by the United Service Gazette , the offi cial service organ of England , regarding the wearing out of the heavy guns in the British navy : "All the Atlantic fleet battle ships have had their barbette guns changed. In the case of the flag ship Caesar only two guns have been changed , but other ships have had three and in one case all ! four guns landed and replaced hy others , and considerable press ure has had to be put on the Woolwich authorities to have all the required guns available. Sur prise has been expressed that de fects should have been simul taneously discovered in so many of the guns , and also at the fact that although the ships have been in port for two months the work of changing them should have been deferred until the last mo ment. The defects are all in the inner or A tube. In some cases it is worn , but in others the evil is much greater , as the tube has developed serious weakness ow ing to overheating. " Practical V , Girl. Pearl I don't see how you can have more beaux than most girls when you are not particular about your appearance. Why , if I am washing dishes when a young man calls I'll rush up the back way and fix nryself up before letting him in. Ruby That's the trouble , dear. I walk right out in my apron.

Once , in Moscow , near the Boro- ntchskaia gate , says Success. Count Tolstoi saw a persistent beggar asking alms , who ex- slaimed : "A little penny , broth er , in the name of Christ ! " A police officer approached ; he was young , martial , and wrapped in the regulation sheepskin At ! ? ight of him the beggar fled , hob bling away in fright and haste. "Is it possible , " said Tolstoi to himself , "that people are forbid- ilen to ask charity , in Christ's * name in a Christian land ! " "Brother , " he said to the police man "canyou read ? " "Yes , " said the officer , politely , " for Tolstoi has a grand air. "Have you a Bible ? " "Yes. " "And do you remember Christ's order to fred the hungry ? " and "ie " cited the words. The police- ( nan was evident ! } ' troubled ; he turned to his questioner and , asked : "And you , sir can you read ? " "Yes , brother. " . "And have you read the police regulations ? " "Yes , brother. " ' ' 'And do yon remember that oegging in the main streets is for-L bidden ? " The prophet found r mswer ready.
