"Washington, July 3.— The E eoiuy
Star had received the following specie;!
relating to tho railway accident in Virginia: Lynchburg, Yu., ,Iuly 3.—The
wreck on the Norfolk A Western railway
ttt Thalton's turns out to he the worst
ever known in tlio history of that road.
The fact is the number of' the killed will
perhaps never be told, as the car? having
caught firo from tho engine were soon
reduced to cinders and old iron. It is
now estimated that not less that 3D perished, while those who escaped with
their lives were all more or less injured,
man?' very seriously. The train was
composed of engine, baggage car, express
and mallear, two passenger cars and
three Pullman vestibule sleeping oars,
and all were consumed in the wreck.
Those known to be killed are engineer
Pat Donovan of Lynchburg, traveling
engineer A. 51. James of Roonoke, Va.,
Mail Agent Bose of Abingtou, J. W. Liu-
sey, train despatcher of Hicksford, 5Ir.
Payton, railroad stenographer of Raid-
ford, wife and child. Passengers John

A  SECOND  FLOOD  AT  JOHNSTON.
Johnston, July 3.— Coneniuugh Valley
is again deluged with water. The rain
which began falling last evening still continues and the mountain stream in many
places are out of their banks anal sweeping things before them. For a time last
night the rain-fall was much heavier than
that which preceeded the breaking of tlie
Southfork dam and the terrible disaster
of Slay 31st. The workmen on the pile
of drift narrowly escaped drowning, and
those engaged in removing the debris
from below the bridge were rescued in
boats it the junction oi the Conemttugb
and Stony Creak. Two Immense iron
boilers belonging to the Gnutief Steel
Works were carried away. Terrific
lightning frightened citizens almost out
tlieir senses and peals of thunder Shook
ttie mountains and valleys, causing dead
bodies to come to the surface of the
water in the Conemaugh River. Three
bodies were caught and several others
floated down with the drift. In Cambria
City several houses were again Hooded
and live families were compelled to vacate
and go to the hills. Camps occupied by
workmen were alss Hooded and men
weiii ,'ompellcd to remain up all n'ght.
MTAfiE  COACH  HOimEIl.
Cheyenne, Wyo., July 8.—The southbound stage coach from Lander to Row-
lins was held up and robbed on Monday
near Rongis by threo road agents. Mr-.
Jones, wife of the Indian Agent and her
throe children were the only passengers
on the coach. The robbers compelled
her to give np all her money and valuables and keys to her trunk. They
emptied her trunk, taking all the valuables. They then took the mail bags,
cut them open and took the registered
letters and valuables. They kept the
driver covered with revolvers until the
work of going through the mail was completed, when they disappeared in the
darkness. Deputy sheriff a\rent of Lander, with twenty Shoshone Indians are
on the trail of the robbers with a chance
of catching them.

great deal of "blow" about building on

A Fi-eacher fieUtea   01*   Kxperteu-M—Th*
Ceremony from   First to   Lut   I* Full of
,     PitfoIU   fnr   the    Untrained - The   Old
Imus Made U Mistake.
Somo ludicrous errors committed by agitated and absent minded pairs as tbey stood
ttefore tbe altar are related by a preacher in
Chambers' Journal:
Thnotliy Duggan was a stevedore, perhaps
sis. i'ect two in height and proportlouatoly
broad. He appeared as a bridegroom, tba
bride nos u charming young person of tender
years. All woLt well until the moment come
for Timothy and his bride to give their troth
to each other fn the prescribed manner.
"Say after me." said I to Timothy, **L
Timothy"	
Thero was no response.
"Say after me," repeated the parson, '%
Timothy"	
Timothy was still silent, a puuled Icok
croeping orer his broad face.
"Say after me," said I for the third time,
witb, perhaps, a shade of annoyance.
"After you, sir," responded Timothy, with
Che politest possible duck of his bullet bead.
But this indifference to the rubric is so
p-eat that upon the Injunction, "Place tbe
dag on tbe third finger," 1 hare more than
once soon tho bridegroom clap it upon the
third finger of his own hand with all the complacency in the world. Once I detected a
bridegroom endeavoring to force tbe ring onto the bride's thumb; but there was junta suspicion tbat ho had been making merry before
coming to church that morning. The same
excuse could not be offered for a bridegroom
from whom I could got uo word of response,
uot even a sulky "I will." The situation was
becoming most embarrassing, when the solitary bride-maid—his sister—casually observed:
"E'sa little'ard of 'earing, sir." Tbe man
was stone deaf; yet they had not thought lt
necessary to tell the parson. If the bridegroom understood not a word of the service,
what did it matter*
TWISTING THE RESPONSES.
But tho marriage service from first to loot
is full of pitfalls for the unlearned man. In
some cases it becomes painfully clear that the
contracting parties recognize but few of the
words they are bidden to say, and merely imitate tbe sound with such accuracy as their
imperfect knowledge will permit The words
"u> bavo and to hold" ought to be simple
enough, but, as a matter of fact, tbey are the
subjects of some astounding blunders, I remember one bridegroom who had brought a
very charming young bride to church, and
perhaps regarded ber as a thing of beauty to
bo hi his home a joy forever, rendering "to
havo and to hold" as "to bave and behold,"
Another, who possibly hod somo cause to
dread the fate of Mr. Caudle, struck out an
entirely uew version, and faithfully promised
"to have and to be told." "To love and to
cherish" is another frightful stumbling block.
"To love and be cherries" was the nearest to
tbe original of many variations popular
among tho males of that parish. The brides
were happy with the familiar rendering, "to
Jove cherries and*to bay." "God^s holy otdl-
nance" tripped up many. "Holy orders" was
convenient, and perhaps conveyed the most
meaning. "Plight theo my troth" and "give
thee my troth" were, 1 imagine, words of
foreign sound, and I well remember one
young person, who was wedding a most villainous looking fellow, changing her sentiment into "thereto 1 give thee my throat."
Thero was, perhaps, an unconscious prophecy
wrapped up in that promise.
Tbo words accompanying the delivery of
the ring are, as everybody knows, the subject
uf some characteristic blunders. I nev-jr
heard some of the more elaborate distortions
credited to countrymen, but our people nobly
distinguished themselves over the clause
"with all my worldly goods I thee endow."
Tbey never blundered so aptly as the fortune
hunter wbo, in wedding on heiress, unwittingly said, "with all my goodly words I thee
endow;" they were content to produce a
similar sound with a sublime Indifference to
sense. "I thee and thou," "I thee do bow,"
"1 theo allow," were the most popular of
those versions.
A CLOSE CALL FOR BIGAMY.
But nothing more clearly indicates the utter
lack of intelligence with which some of tbe
poor regard the service of the church than
. the fact tbat once upou a time I came upon a
j youthful  curate   solemnly   and   devoutly
a marrying the father of a bridegroom to the
', mother of bis bride in the presence of their
own proper partners.    Tho discovery was
brought about in this way.  It was Christmas
morning, a great timo for weddings, since
Boxing day then remained for the honeymoon.   Seven  or eight couples had given
notice,   and   the   congregation  was large.
While one curate registered the couples in
tbe   vestry    another    married    them    la
1 succession    with    such    expedition    aa  a
slight    stutter    would    permit    The  old
1 parish    clerk,   with    his   list   of   names,
called up the high contracting parties as the
; turn of each   camo.     I superintended tbe
1 whole proceedings.   In the vestry were two
young people l>emg registered, whoee names
i were, let us say, Jones and Smith,   Coming
, mound to tbe chancel again one was a Uttle
surprised to   find   tbe old  clerk   inquiring
among tho congregation for a Mr. Smith and
a Mrs. or Miss Jones.   When I next looked in
Ills direction bo had brought up to the chan-
col stops a gentleman well stricken in years
and dressed  in a sleeved  waistcoat    The
bride *vns n broad, comely woman, whoso
turned up sleeves loft bare two monstrous
Ci-imson arms.   Oppi"essed by an uncom-fort-
nhlo suspicion I hurried to the vestry, and
thero found tbo young people,  Jones and
Smith, just paying the fees.
'is your father here?" said I to the bride*
groom,
"Yes, sir."
"Is your mother here!"—to the bride.
"Yes, sir."
"Now," said I to Jones the younger, "look
through this door and tell me If that is your
lather being married there."
"Well, sir," returned Jones, after a leisurely inspection, "he's having it read over to
him,"
"Is your mother alive?"
"Sho'sin church."
It wns tbo work of an instant to nish
around and stop tho service. But when the
peoplo wero dragged asunder, Jones, the
elder, in reply to nn indignant Inquiry as to
what ho meant by it, coolly replied: -*-WAH,
he," (indicating the penitent clerk with a jerk
of his grimy thumb) "he told us to come
this way." That couple bad been charged by
mention of "tbo dreadful day of judgment,
when tho secrets of all hearts shall be dis*
closed," to say whether they knew any Impediment why they might not lawfully be
joined together in matrimony; and they
heard 11 silence. So did tho wife of the one
and tin* husband of the other, I bave often
wondered how far thoy would have gone
without remonstrance. Perhaps the demand
for a ring would have precipitated the crfcHs

very naturally directed public attention
to the subject of economical production
and the equitable liletribution of tbe
profits of industry. The history of industry both in Europe and the States
presents a marvellous record of human
Ingenuity, perseverance nnd skill,
bul in its moral and economical
aspects it is unsatisfactory and discouraging.   Up to the present iii apital
and labor, instead ofworkingin harmony
•dale by siale. have usually heen at daggers
drawn. A slate nf ivar, or at hest an
armed truce is the condition under which
industry has been pursued throughout
the greater part of its career. The un-
tagonis u of capital and labor throughout
this period 1ms manifested ilself in frequent strikes, attended—in the older
countries where tlie struggle for exist-
i-iu-e is far keener than in more recently
settled lands (such as Australia or
British Columbia)—with violence, outrage and coercion, followed by irretrievable loss and inconceivable misery. In
England up to 1824 penal laws prohibited
combinations rii workmen tor the purpose of raising wages which were conse-1 quired
qtiently invariably fixed by the masters:,
nor was it, we believe, till after 1868 thai
workmen could locally meet for the purpose of securing higher wages by mutual
encouragement and persuasion. Tbo complete enfranchisement of labour which
look place ten years later, and which
recognised, legalised, aud registered
Trades Unions,' removed the slain of
legal inequality attaching to the prolot-

ami on the other "Lord Clifton." He
rung lhe bell for Ihe messenger. "When

A Diver's Experience.
In searching for tho bodies of drowned
persons, I bavo experienced some great shocks
from very simple occurrences-, perhaps tho
most natabloof which wns nt llio St Charles
bridge disaster, Among tho ujiXortaifiites
had been a tramp who luul gone down with
the wreck. I I bought I bad all Iho bodies
"ill, mill had been blasting for about two
weeks, when, whilo leaning over  tho   sido of
astnoU boat, a white, ghastly, and nearly
nude corpse shot right up in tbo nir, soino
f( et clear of the water, grazing my faco as it
[lassed At first I thought it an apparition.
So sudden aud unexpected did tho horrid
tiling burst on my sight that it complelely
unnerved mo, nnd for days I was prostrated.
Tbo explanation was simple, Tbo body bud
been pinned down until decomposition hud
generated gases niul made tho corpse so light
that it naturally longed to got out of tho
water, until tho specific gravity had been
rendered so much loss than lhat of tho sur*
rounding element, that tho longing had been
intensified to a degree that overcame tho retaining influence, nnd it got frco and shot
upwards. Bodies gain n remarkable force by
continued expansion. I havo known them to
bring up an amount cf sand nnd mud almost
beyond belief.—St, Louis Globe-Democrat.
Atomie   Nature.
Nature works every-where with an Infinite
uuinber of small magnitudes which can ouly
be perceived by our obtuse organs of senao,
when in infinite masses, For example, a
granule of common salt that wo aro hardly
able to tosto, contains myriads of groups of
atoms invisible to mortal eyes. Three inille*
grammes, thirteen sixty-fifths of a grain,
blown into a [room containing sixty cubic
meters of'nir will, in n few minutes, show
sodium lines in a flame, standing some distance away,easily distinguished by tho naked
eye. Darwin states the astonishing fact that
ono twenty-millionth part of a grain of ammonia sulphate will induce changes in a
j. land sufficient to cause a motor impulse to
be sent the wholo length of tho tentacle of
an insectivorous plant. Stroptn* when diluted moro than n million fold, will produco
contractions in the pupil of tho eye,—Kansas City Journal.
Multiplication uf Drugs.
A Baltimore physician In a paper pubUlhod
in a local medical journal denounces with
lively earnestness the tendency to tho multiplication of useless drugs. Tho writer ns-
eerta that In the Index to the fifteenth edition of the "United States Dispensatory" is a
list of nbout 17,000 names ol medicinal substances, which, allowing for duplication and
repetition, he estimates represents about
11,000 remedies, Tluw of acknowledged
merit in this enormous bulk nro aptly compared to G nit in no's reasons, "two grains of
wheat bid in two bushels of chair." The
yery existence of this vast armory of therapeutic weapons demonstrates Iho doctor's
weakness in his struggle with disease. The
conquerors of this worlcj are the men of fow
weapons; the needless elaboration of arms is
tbo vain resort of tho feeble.-—Analyst.
\u call ior Duties.
A Washington paper which asked its lady
readers for replies to the question, "What
kind uf a husband do you wautJ" has been
overwhelmed with answers. Many of the
fair eliglbles would like to marry men of
wealth, but the majority prefer business
men. Some want handsome men, but marked
stress is laid upon the requirement inmost
cases that whether tho objects of thoir choice
be rich or handsome, they must 'oo smart., intelligent, energetic aud of good habits. As
for tho "dude,1' no quarter is anywhere given

A    DETECTIVE   ON    THE    PECULIARITIES   OF    HI8   CALLING*
Sow I'rt-iit-li, English and American Thief
Takers Work Their Pockets—Shadowing
Bank Clerks—Thu Different Method*—A
Few Casr« Realte-I.
One of the best known detectives in the
United States sat in the lobby of the Windsor
hotel yesterday afternoon, nnd after repented
solicitation by u reporter for The Times, consented to talk about tho business.
"Thero is all the difference in the world," ho
said, "between tho methods used by tho secret service agents of different countries.
People who read French novels have an Idea
that the disguises spoken of In them as being
worn by the Lecocqs of tho different stories
are something utterly untrue. Strange as it
may seem, however, it is true.
"A French detectivo who cannot so disguise himself that his superior ennnot recognize him could not find employment in any
detectivo bureau. The disguises aro wonderful, too, ami even the ttrong light of day
shows no imperfections in them.
THE  HirKKUKNCn  IN METHODS.
"There are two sorts of detectives in
Franco—.stale detectives and tho municipal
•ft city force. Among tlio former no one
knows wlio his fellow detectives are, and as
they never work in pairs the necessity for
(mowing each other is not so great. Tho
working of the French bureau is very thorough and moro like the American method
than the English.
"The latter never think of disguising them
selves, und go to work openly. If n bnnk Is
robbed iu Franco a uew assistant teller or
clerk appears in tlio bank a day or so afterward—ho Is a detective, of course, aud where
in England the detectives would be called iu
in front of all tho employes nnd ask them all
manner of questions, tho French would say
nothing, aud nothing moro would probably
bo heard of the robbery until tho thief was
caught.
"Tho English havo a great system of stool
pigeons. Among tlio vicious of nil classes,
male and female, arc always those to be
found who, for tho sake of being protected iu
a certain w,\y, carry all tho news of tho
crooked work dono among tho swell mobsmen, as high class thieves are culled, to Scotland Yard, whero Es situated tho criminal investigation bureau. If 'JIarry the Swell' is
flashing a great deal of mono}' about, tho
fact Is at ouco reported to the police, and if
any largo forgery or robbery has recently occurred, 'Harry tho Swell' is liable to prove nn
alibi. Inside the great portico of Scotland
Yard is a largo caso containing tho photographs of all tho detectives employed by
tho bureau, and tho crooks, or thieves can
havo free access at nny timo to study tho
faces of those who are liable to bo after tbem
at somo future time. This stool pigeon system is not used much in America, ns tho polico do not put much faith in it.
"Iu Franco or England, if tho employe of
a big banking houso is suspected of irregularities his habits aro watched and the facts ascertained, while in America a man v.ill ho
set upon tbe track of I ho supposed thief, mako
his acquaintance and Ingratiate himself into
tho suspected man's confidence. Ho will
spend as much or more money that, the suspect, and will go iuto nny dissipation with
him. In the event of irregularities in any
large concern tho American detectivo becomes
un employe of tho corporation—whether as a
porter or a director of a bank, Tho clew and
tho working up of it is made much more of
by an American than by any one elso. He
will jump at conclusions from a faint something- and frequently hit tho mark, where
tho stolid Britisher would bo stumbling in
the dark.
"To bo a good detective a man must bo
possessed of courage, brains and coolness.
Thero is no mystery, however impenetrable
it ma)' appear, but what can bo solved if the
right methods aro employed. Tliere was n
caso 1 remember in Chicago some years ago,
"A well  known business man  was found
murdered one morning iu his office. * The
crime  had   evidently been  committed  tho
[ night before, for tho hotly had  been cold u
long time, and the man's family had waited
t for bim to como to his homo tho evening pro*
I vious.    His valuables had been  taken,  the
safe had been rifled, and beyond tho ghnstly
I bullet hole in tlio back of tho man's head,
thero was nothing to Indicate with what the
crime had been committed,    No pistol could
bo found.
"I was put on tho case aud reasoned that
us tho robbery was evidently committed for
gain the murderer must bo in poor circumstances. I visited all the pawn shops In tho
city, and found that five revolvers had been
pawned between 0 o'clock tho previous evening and tho morning. Three wero 45 caliber, the size evidently used to kill tho man.
Two of the men were well dressed nud tho
other wasn't. The latter was described to
me, und I took tho pawnbroker down to tho
different railway depots whero trains were
leaving. Wo went through threo trains, and
finally located the man in a smoking car. I
arrested him, and much of tho dead man's
property wns found in his possession. It's
not much of n story—if the man hadn't
pawned tho pistol ho would certainly havo
got off, but it shows how much littlo things
tmount to, and will give you an Idea of how
i dotectivo will go to work.
"Thoso who aVeintrusted with tho handling
.a? largo sums of money aro frequently
(patched by detectives, particularly if any
iioney is missing from tho institution. Bank
■jlerlffl aro particlUlarly liable to bo kept under
lurvoillauco. Net long ngo a leak was known
to exist in one of tho banks of this city.
Every clerk won shadowed by a detectivo im*
til finally tho thief was discovered. His
mother mado good his defalcation, and being
'of good family,'ho was permitted to 'resign.'
'Tho Hfoof a detectivo is startling enough,
but It gets tiresome nnd monotonous, and I
expect soon to retire, I remember ouo case
that happened fn Now York, A very swell
reception was given by qno of tho leaders of
society. Ono ut tho guests had left a valuable solitaire In tho ladies'dressing rooui on
tho wushstand, nnd, forgetting It, had left it.
On her return to find it, it had of courso disappeared. Nobody knew whero it was. Tho
bunks of all tho servants wero searched, but
no trace could bo found of the jewel, which
was worth about $4,000. I finally found it
whero It had beeu pawned for $500 In a pawnshop by a French woman. I took the visiting list of tho hostess and finally, after a
week's search, found that ono of tho guests, a
rich woman, had a French maid, and that sho
had gone to Europe shortly after tho reception.
"I had to wait for her return, mado tho
acquaintance of tbo maid, and took her to
tho pawnbroker's where bo Identified her.
She confessed and her mistress redeemed tbe
diamonds and paid all expenses. I nover told
on her.
"You seo also that pawnbrokers aro important factors In our business, and that they
aro frequently of service in detecting crimo,
Still, pawnbrokers encourage robbers, for if
thero wero no shops tho temptation to stcul
would not bo so great.
"It'sja singular business in everyway," continued tho thief taker. "Faseinatiug Ul lnauv
ways, but, liko everything else, ono gets tired
of it.''—-Denver Times,

in Mulberry street, near Canal, amid the
noise, bustle and confusion of tho busy merchants <>f tho "Bend,*'there Is a quiet mid unpretentious dining room. 11 is presided over
at all hours of the day and night by Won
Sing Foo, mid tho business is said to be a1

pasted on the windows and their virtues- as
articles of diet, wo sel forth in choice spider

most attractive sign, however, reads i\n follows. "A good diner 6 cents."
This was sufficient to lure a reporter into
tho place .recently. There wero none of tho
Oriental luxuries in sight. On the walls were
a few pictures of flowers, highly colored, and
a certificate that Mr. Poo, or some of his
friends, hadntteudeda Sunday school. Tbo
tables woro of pine and partially covered by
a ragged material thai looked like a cross between a dishcloth and a mop.   .Mr. Foo wafl
' engaged in leveling the sole of bis shoo with
a hatchet when the reporter entered, and,
after glancing up quickly, went un with his
work. The reporter dropped carelessly upon
a stool and waited. How long the watt would
have lasted will never be known. Tliere was
a sudden Interruption, A pungent odor stole
in from tho backyard, where something wus
being cooled.    It was too powerful for any
i nose save a highly cultivated one. Tho reporter tried to keep it book, but out it camo
- a double barreled sneeze—thut s-'t everything tu jingling.
It struck Mr. Fooamidsbip. The hatchet
foil OU Ills foot and the shoe dropped Into
, something which looked like a keg of mo-
lasses,    There was blood in bis eye and there
( might have   been a tragedy, had  not  tho
I innocent cause of all the commotion put on

THE HEST  IN  THK HOUSE.
Mr. Foo smiled so that no one could tell
whether he was weeping, wailing or gnashing
j his teeth as he said:
<     "Wing Foo ah alio go to kiting seo bah."
•lAU right, Mr. Foo.   rilforgive you.  Now
j just set up the best in the house, up to the
| eight cent limit, and all will bo well."
|    Mi*. Foo jumped away with the air of a
j man who did not understand a word that had
! been spoken.   Ho kept out of sight for twenty
j minutes and tben appeared with a large bowl
of something steaming hot, which ho set on
I the table anil thou tool; a seat close by.   He
j began to whistle a peculiar call and the yellowish soup moved restlessly In the bowl.   A
! spoon came with the stuff,   It required somo
j courage to take a mouthful, and it would
take fl team of horses and a derrick to get one
up to the rack for a second trial.   -V mixture
of hud, mustard, salt and bilge water may
tempt a lagging appetite, but iti-* jusfcn little surprising to the stomach of a man not
thoroughly used to the customs of tho Flow-
try Kingdom,   Mr. Foo took the mysterious
compound away and came back In a little
while with a largo platter and a couple of
Small dishes.   There wero two slices of some
brown material on the platter.   Mr, Foo admitted that it was "po-sjek-re-aut-i."   Ther**"

small fish bones, and the other wus n dainty
morse) which might have been taken, with u
little imagination, to bo a bit of fried mummy.   There wero ulso some beans, cabbage
and rice.   Mr. Foo evidently runs bis place
on the touch not and tasto not plan.    Well—
It keeps one from being poisoned.    A nibble
here and there demonstrated that an ash can
would be a safe place for Mr. Foo's 'layout,"
It made it easy to understand why a young
Chinaman wears wrinkles and appear*! liko
tin old innn while yet in his teens.
A. tiSIALL POT 01'* TEA.
Mr. Foo removed the dishes. He wanted to
bring some more of the menu, but the reporter Indicated that ho would prefer a drink
Df some kind, Altera long delay Mr. Foo
appeared with a tray bearing n small pot of
tea and a cup that resembled a toy, The lea
was a revelation. It was aromatic and the
flavor delicious, and if there had not beeu a
small family of Croton bugs found in the teapot, after the tea had been -swallowed, it
would have been thoroughly enjoyable. This
traded the dinner.
"Well, Mr. Foo, how much do I owe your"
Lhe reporter asked, simply as a mutter of
form.
Tho remark brought back Mr. Foo's cheerfulness, and ho came near uncovering his
mme with longitudinal extension of his smile.
Ho showed for the first time that his English
had not been entirely neglected. After a few
marks witb a brush, through tho wreath0 of
smiles came tho word*; soft and low:
"Sixta-iiine-a con,"
"Sixty-nine cents! t lo to, Mr. Foo. You are
crazy I Why your sign out thero says that
you givo a good dinner for eight cents. What
iio you mean by this extortion.-"
"Ah! Excus-a-mo. Eighteen for poor Chiniv
man, Melioan man rJchee, no eateo like
Chinaman, Ho eatee blenty soup, beef and
good tings. Muohee eatee, muchee pay. Belly
good. Blxty-nin-a cen cheapee. Chinaman
lesee money all time.   Belly poor."
Tho bill was paid, and tho visitor came
away with the oxperieuceand conviction that
Mr. Foo bad mistaken-his calling. He ought
to double up with Hungry Joo and do thu
"hand shaking" nob.—New York Tribune

A Knowledge «' Fleinentary Htudlei
Needed - Let Cookery be Learned nt
Home—Object ton i (n Kitchens In City
Behoolhotum*— Pertinent   Points.
The women who propose Lo introduce In
struction in the science and art ot cooking
into tho public schools undoubtedly uieao
weJl. Their oiler to jmy tbe expenses ot o
teacher und to provide the articles that arc
to bo prepared for food Is commendable, It
is understood, however, that this proposition
Is only with a view of making a publlo ex
perimciifc. If it is successful the design is Uj
bavo cooking taught, as rending, writing,
German and music now aro. at the cost of
taxpayers. It will take its place in the reg
ular course of studies
That every woman, whatever her rank,
should understand how to prepare the various
kinds of food in common use ia certain.
Nothing promotes the happiness of mankind
in general us much us good food. Poorly
prepared food ruins tbe health of many fam
ilies. Wasteful cooking prevents tlio prosperity of a still large- number Economy in
thekitclien.lt is said, enabled tbo French
nation to pay tho Indemnity demanded by
Germany for a foolish war, nnd allowed the
peasantry to contribute millions toward dig
ging the Panama canal. Persons of every
ago and condition appreciate a good meaL
Cooking deserves to bo recognized ns one ot
tbo fine arts. For Its highest development
science as well us skill and experience are
required It is one of the most bopeful signs
of the limes that several chemists have lately
. delivered courses ot lectures nnd written
works ou the science of cookery The latter
ure now taking the place of tho empirical
cool; book
too many BTtrorKa
I     The  propriety,   however,   of introducing
! cooking into tbe common schools la question
j able.    An attempt Is made to impart Instruo
; tion  in   quite too  many  things uow.    The
1 school life of the majority of pupils Is Limited
i r.u  500 days    They   cannot learn to read.
write and compute simple numbers In this
: short time      Every  new  branch  interferes
with   progress in   what ure known  as the
fundamental studies.    If human beings are
to occupy n place above that of the common
animals It Is certainly  necessary  that they
learn to read in the language of the country
• to express their thoughts on paper and to
. compute numbers.    A very lurge proportion
; ot pupils leave lhe schools now only only one
step   removed   from    illiteracy.     German,
I music, dramtng and gymnastics, have each
had an Influence iu  preventing  them from
I learning how to use the English  language In
I any other way than In conversation.
A knowledge of cookery can  be acquired
i out of school much better than a knowledge
I of reading, writing, arithmetic and geogra
; phy.    If n girl can read and write well, un
I derstnnds the   value of weights nnd moos
, uses, and is tolerably familiar witb the terms
employed in practical science, sho can learn
muoh obout cookery by the study of books.
| A knowledge of the elementary studies ordi
uarily taught tu commoti schools is as im
portant fo learning cookery as to leornir
anything else.
SEVKH.AL OCJKCTIONS.
Thero are great objections to fitting up
! rooms in school bouses to 'on used for cooking
! food.    Ovens, stoves, I binges  and  a  large
number of utensils will, of course, be neces
sary for cooductingoperntfons,   Meat, game.
lish, fruits,  vegetables, butter,  lard, pepper,
: spice, vinegar and  many moro articles must
be brought to the school bouse every day or
j kept in stock.   The odor of tbe kitchen will
' bo likely to extend  to every  room In  the
1 building.   Tbo  children   wbo   aro   making
! mud pies under the direction of the instruct'm
i in art will wish they had some of the bacon
I and eggs, corned beef and cabbage, porl; and
' liver, beefsteak and onions or fried oaifw
and cottage cheese that are being prepare*
by tho class In cookery In the room boneatl
them.
If cookery is introduced in tbe schools tin i*
will properly be a demand for instruction b
i  -iitting, fitting and making articles of cloth

! portant that girls know how to wash, star.■'.<
and Iron clothes.   Girls as well as boys should
