WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. ; A; German ...paper publishes an inter esting article on tho lost dishes of tho ;Middle'.Ages: It seems that the art of cooking lias declined, and that it is in. part due to the changing fashions in food. For instance, in Germany, in the ^middle Ages, many vegetables were eaten which have long since dis appeared from the table, such as vio let leaves, mixed with young nettles, thistles and green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads were made of mallow leaves', celery roots, and purs lane, mixed with salt and pepper, for oil was almost unknown. Olive oil. was considered to smack of effiminaoy and Italian luxury. Horse "radish, sauee was used instead. .The origin of sauerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certainly invented by the Ger man hausfrau long before, cauliflowers or artichokes or potatoes were known.

V ■ I Neck wear is important, and at pre sent many delightful little, items can bo j bought so cheaply that no one need look dowdy at the throat. Indeed, never I think in fashion's varied career , have so many dainties been ready for inexpensive, and immediate purchase on the part of the woman who wants, to. look smart.

Stomach Troubles Due to Acidity. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIA LIST. So-called stomach troubles, such as indigestion, wind, stomach-ache and inability to retain food, in stead of indicating that the stomach is oiit of order, are in n'ae cases out of ten simply evidence that fermentation is taking place in the food contents of the stomach, causing the iormatiou of gas and acids. iVTnd distends the stomach, and causes that full, oppressive feeling sometimes known as heart burn, while the acid irritates and inflames the delicate lining of the stomach. The stomach, however, is not at fault. The trouble lies entirely in the fermenting food. Such fermentation is unnatural, and acid formation is not only un natural, but may involve the most serious, consequences if not pre vented. To prevent or stop fer mentation of the food contents of the stomach and to neutralise the acid, and render it bland and harmless, half a teaspoonful of bi surated magnesia, probably the best and most effective antacid ...
