Praise For the Sardine.
It Is encouraging In these days, when
everything nlecls condemned by scion
title faddists as nnsty. to havo thu high
authority of tho London Lancet In
support of the popular theory that tho
sordino Is of great dietetic value. The
sordino Is good, tho Lancet telts tin,
because, for ono thing, It encourages
tho consumption of oil, which tends to
avoid "ninny Ills, nnd especially thoso
associated with wasting diseases mid
gouty dispositions." .This consumption
of sordino oil, it ndds,' "proventu the
overloading of tho tissues with nitrog

Tho sardine supplies nlso nn excellent
proportion (25 per cent! of nitrogenous

economical food. In addition to this
