CHARLIE MANUEL hinted a night earlier that it was probably a good time to give Ben Revere his first day off. Revere, Manuel said, had been trying too hard in his first month with a new team. And the offensive results haven't been pretty. But for a player whose game revolves almost exclusively around speed, a sore left quad is probably a good reason, too. "He said something about his leg in spring training, [but] he didn't say anything about it to me [recently]," Manuel said of Revere, who had started 22 straight games before yesterday.

The actions of a local patriot will be remembered next Sunday, when Gloucester County Parks and Recreation sponsors the 18th annual Jonas Cattell Run and 18th Century Field Day. Edith Hoelle, the librarian of the Gloucester County Historical Society, said Cattell was a blacksmith's apprentice from Haddonfield. He learned of an attack planned against colonial-held Fort Mercer by 1,200 to 2,000 Hessian mercenaries under British pay during the Revolutionary War. The British were occupying Philadelphia, and the troops from Fort Mercer, located at Red Bank Battlefield in present-day National Park, were interfering with British shipping.

Revere is a tiny hamlet in Nockamixon Township in Upper Bucks County. The business district, such as it is, boasts a deli selling hard rolls, gasoline, Playboy and the papers, work gloves and, in season, hunting caps. Above the deli is a combination beer-and-sandwich shop. Next to that is a gift shop. The business district sits on Route 611, a two-lane thoroughfare for people commuting from parts south to Easton. It is also a road well-traveled by Sunday drivers looking at the scenery, driving slowly and annoying the locals.

The scenery along the Blue Route won't be changing anytime soon if the township Zoning Hearing Board has anything to say about it. But two Philadelphia companies, H. A. Steen Industries Inc.'s Outdoor Advertising division and Revere National Corp., have filed appeals in Montgomery County Court to keep alive their bids to erect billboards visible from the Blue Route. Steen's proposal was for four billboards - a 14- by 48-foot billboard at 413 W. Ridge Pike, next to a Burger King restaurant; a 20- by 60-foot sign at 445 W. Germantown Pike, across from Plymouth Meeting Mall, and two double- sided, 20-by-60-foot "spectaculars," one with a 60-foot-high pole and the other with an 80-foot-high pole, at 520 and 540 Colwell Lane.

The Borough Council is considering a free offer that would bring several bus shelters and a few extra bucks to the town. Representatives from Revere National Corp. of Philadelphia presented the proposal to the Borough Council on Tuesday night. They even hitched a sample shelter to the back of a station wagon and drove it to the work session. But the council held off on any quick decisions on a deal that seemed almost too good to be true. According to the offer, the company would install for free several of the large aluminum and plexiglass structures - essentially, lighted billboards - around the borough.

When activists stood yesterday against a proposed billboard near a proposed highway in Somerton, they were caught off guard by the suggestion that a friend to their cause had become a foe. "I'm fuming," said Mary Jane Hazell, president of the Somerton Civic Association. "They led the zoning board to believe that I agreed to it. " "It" is a 12-by-24-foot billboard that Philadelphia's largest sign company - Revere National Corp. - wants to install at 1200 Byberry Rd., near a bridge over the Conrail tracks.

The good news was bad news. Nearly 100 people gathered to discuss deterrents to what many perceive as a life-threatening problem - speeding drivers on Levick and Robbins Streets - only to be told that those thoroughfares are not among the most accident- prone in the city. Last year there were 132 reported accidents on Levick and 65 on Robbins between the Delaware River and Roosevelt Boulevard, according to the state Department of Transportation. The intersection of Revere and Robbins Street - a focus of neighborhood fears - does not appear on the state's list of the 200 most hazardous intersections in the city.

Twins 1, White Sox 0 MINNEAPOLIS - Nick Blackburn pitched eight shutout innings for Minnesota, and Michael Cuddyer's home run was enough to beat Mark Buehrle and Chicago. Buehrle was beaten despite giving up just three hits over seven innings, and the White Sox fell to 0-4 this year against their primary division rival - scoring a total of three runs in the process. Blackburn (6-4) matched his career high by winning his sixth straight decision. Matt Capps, making his first appearance in eight days, pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 14 attempts this season.
