English Tavern :.
A tavern sign seen in various parts
of England is "The Dog's Head In a
Pot," accompanying the painting of a
dog eating out of a three-legged pot,
which may seem to mean that the host
is hind and his viands good. Another
significant sign is "Five Miles from
Anywhere. No Hurry," seen in Hamp
shire, a pleasant reminder that it Is ar
tereable place to linger.
Tendency of Fish to Decompose.
Fish, because of its tendency rapid
ly to decompose, holds a peculiar posi
tion among foods. In England It is
the subject of a special act of Parlia
ment. So long ago as 1698 men knew
the evil consequences resulting from
eating mackerel of uncertain post
mortem age. So they passed an act
providing that except during the
hours of divine service this fish could
be sold on Sunday. That act has
never been repealed.
Theory and Practice.

Origin ef "Schooner."
"Schooner" Is a word of American
manufacture. At Gloucester, Mass,
about 1713 Capt. Andrew Robinson
built the first vessel called by that
name. As it slid off the stocks into
the water a bystander shouted "Oh.
how she scoons!" (skims). Robinson
instantly said: "A acooner let her
be." The name has been universal!
adopted, but, singularly enough, is
spelled in the Dutch manner, though
it is provincial English.

Nourishment in Skim Milk.
In skimming milk the cream re
moved lessens the fat percentage, and
for older people or fat children the
skim milk is equally desirable, in
some cases better. In eating apples
the skin, too, should be eaten. Pared
apples are not so nutritious, as the
ash contents of the apple skin are
valuable to the human system.

Nieee and Nephew
of Uncle Sam
should be deeply interested in what he has said about soda c
crackers, because they are the one food with which all of -&
them are familiar.
Uncle Sam has given out figures shqwing that soda -
crackers are richer in nutriment and body-building elements,
properly proportioned, than any food made from flour.
This is saying much for common soda crackers, and
much more for UflOOClS BlSCllIt, because they are
.soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked bettci
more scientifically. They are packed better more cleanly.
The damp, dust and odor proof package retains all the good
ness and nutriment of the wheat, all the freshness of the best
baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries.
Your Uncle Sam has shown what food he thinks best
for his people. His people have shown that they think
Uneeda BfSCUit the best of that food, nearly
400,000,000 packages having already been consumed.
