eon. "A great favorite with the girls
is potato soup. "Of course, when we
have cooked a meal we sit down at
once and eat it, so the girls them
selves are the judges of their own
handiwork. We have lessons in cof
fee making and in cooking cereals.

of corn beef and cabbage which they
had cooked themselves.

the hardest to inculcate is 'airing the
room,' " she continued. "It is much

cisco's big churches was under po

number of policemen marched up and
surrounded the building. They were
uniformed and armed. Duty and the
necessities of protection of property

The basement is protected. -

that some homeless, unemployed
men had been misinformed to the
effect that they would be permitted
to sleep in that basement Christmas
"But the Son of Man hath not
where to lay His head."
