N a public "demonstration garden" in New York City, beds of growing plants are accompanied by explanatory placards that attract much attention One of them reads:

MINT-Prior to July, 1919, was grown as an ingredient for juleps and for flavoring lamb. We fear its cultivation will stop and the once famous plant become a weed.

Another of the placards mentioned above seems to amuse many of the way farers who stop to learn about the possibilities of a city garden. It reads:

SAGE-Used for flavoring pork, duck, and goose. Grows almost any where. Sow seeds first of May. The Chinese love sage tea, and in the olden times would exchange four pounds of tea with the Dutch for one pound of sage. In England the saying goes:

He that would live for aye
Must eat of sage in May.

Slocum; "Lord Anson's Voyage Around the World," and, last but not least, "Robinson Crusoe."

A friend who has been re-reading Locke's "Beloved Vagabond" points out an error on the first page-a reference sto Canning's "organ-grinder who had no story to tell." The allusion, of course, is to the "needy knife-grinder and the Friend of Humanity," a satire in which the tender-hearted philanthropist turns from pity to scorn when he finds that his beneficiary's "pitiful story" is merely one of the grog-shop variety and ends by saying to the knife-grinder:

"I give thee sixpence? I will see thee dd first."

A photograph reproduced on page 161 of last week's Outlook, by Léonard Misonne, has interested many readers. M. Misonne is a Belgian, and during the years of the Great War his home town was in the hands of the Germans. His photographic work, thus interrupted, has now been resumed, and a few months ago an exhibition of his new prints was held in London. M. Misonne is known among his photographic

= friends as the "Corot of the camera," his photographs containing more than a suggestion of the delicacy and feeling that characterized the pictures of the famous French painter. The photograph was reproduced through the courtesy of "Photograms."

A too-faithful dog spoiled a film scene, according to a Los Angeles correspondent of a motion picture magazine. "George Walsh," he says, "has a dogand a certain 'villain' is aware of the fact. The dog hangs around the set most of the time as a casual spectator. On this occasion everything was ready for the big scene. The heavy was to attack Walsh with a knife. 'Camera!' shouted the director. Like a flash the faithful dog leaped for the 'villain' who was threatening his beloved master and obtained a firm hold on his leg! And a perfectly good scene was shot to pieces."

Rhymes published in this column March 30 prompt a reader to ask:

With the ball of his foot can a man

play a game?

Make a strike with the bat of his eye?

Can he take a swim in the creek in

his back?

If he cannot, I wonder why?

When stopping to rest 'neath the arch of his foot,

Can he possibly come to harm By suddenly scratching the skin of his teeth,

Or stumbling into the pit of his arm? Can his bone of contention ever be broke?

Can he see through the pain in his head?

Why does his belt always go to waste? What's the news when his hair is read?

O fudge, I can't understand it at all! My brain reels, my hat I must doff! Why don't his eyes, when they're feeling dry,

Take a drink when the lid is off?

From published interview with PROF. COLLIER
COBB, one of America's foremost geologists with
an universal reputation as a student of harbors.

"Never have I seen such a harbor. On a tour
studying the chief harbors of the world what
was meant to be a few days' hasty visit here
has been lengthened into six weeks of inten-
sive study. Your harbor, unmatched on this
continent, was carved out by glacial action
less than 2000 years ago. Perhaps in 10,000
years your descendants will have to start
dredging just as New York, San Francisco
and other harbors have to today, but until
then, do not worry. Your harbor will get
better with the centuries. This is not true of
any other harbor in the world. . . .

"Nature must have ordained that here should be the trade center of the Pacific and the trade center of the world within the 20th century - here at the world's great crossroads between the East and the West, North America and Eurasia, between North and South, Alaska and South America. The very differences on which world commerce depend are more marked in the case of Seattle than in that of any other city on the globe. . . . Nowhere else is the soil so deep, for I have found in Seattle's front yard glacial drift 900 feet deep. Yours will never be a problem of worn-out soil. Incidentally Los Angeles may "shimmy" with earthquakes and San Francisco may get another one, but Seattle, set on the deepest glacial drift yet discovered, has a shock absorber which makes the city immune for all time."
