The lij'dritius, or serpentine, called In Italy ranocchia, or frogskin, from Its mottled appearance, a stone of a rich, dark green color, with shades and spots resembling a serpent's skin, is popular ly believed to l>e a specific for rheuma tism. Camillo Leonardo, one of the earliest authorities to describe carefully the virtues of precious stones, thus quaint ly speaks of It: "It restores such suffer er* to health If they will stand In the cue, holding It In the hand for three hours, as It causes the discharge of ail the poisonous moisture In the body." Great care, however, must be taken, he warns us. In using it, as It tends at the same time to abstract the natural mois ture of the body. Ground to a powder and taken In wardly, it Is said to cure the stone and venomous bites, and in particular It Is a |>otent charm to drive away serpents of all sorts. Though soft enough to be easily cut or turned, serpentine admits of a high polish and Is much prized for orna mental purposes. French Leave. The origin of the phrase "French leave" Is traced back to a custom be gun In France and Imitated in Eng land, common enough in the eight eenth century, of going away from a social gathering without taking formal leave of host and hostess. This Is abundantly clear from two extracts written In 1775. The first is from Chesterfield's "Principles of Po liteness:" "As the taking what Is call ed a French leave was Introduced that on one person's leaving the company the rest may not be disturbed, looking at your watch does what that piece of politeness was designed to prevent" So also Jekyll: "French etiquettes are precise to a degree. I will allow that taking French leave Is easy and natural: but, on the contrary, there Is more formality in entering one assem bly here than in taking the round of routs for a whole winter In London." As a disclaimer to this derivation the French, on their part, have the phrase, "se retlrer a l'Anglalse"? "to take Eng lish leave"? with the same significance.
