The use ofthem in medicine is perhapsnot so great in these dayswhen a doctor can be readilycalled, but in the old times nohousewife was without agoodly show of them in theyard, and she dried themcarefully for winter use. Norare herbs used nowadays somuch for flavoring in cook-ing; and, when they are de-sired, the pressed leaves arebought at the druggists. The home-grown article isfar better than money can buy.

Herbs should be cut on adry day just before they come into full blossom,tied in bunches and hung up in the attic or spreadthinly on a floor where they can dry quickly. Ofcourse cuttings for daily use, green, may be madeat any time, but too severe cutting weakens the plants.Seedsmen sell plants, ready to set, of some of thebetter-known herbs.

Among the better-known perennial herbs are thefollowing: Balm, catnip, fennel, horehound, hyssop,lavender (not hardy too far north), sweet marjoram,pennyroyal, peppermint, rosemary, rue, sage, spear-mint, tansy, tarragon, thyme, winter savory, worm-wood.
