KeatW Cooked Sunday Meals.
The commonest sight of early Sunday
morning in the cheaper quarters of nn
English citj is the people c.irrjing their
dinners to the bakers to be cooked in then
ovens When the last batch of bread in
drawn the ovens are filled with joints and
poultry, which are delivered, at a moder
nte pnee, piping hot for the table Year
ago, in smaller communities, the practice
was observed here, but I never eucoun
lered it in New York until the other
Sunday It was on the east side, in a
populous tenement district, that I came
on n procession of women, girls and bojs
carrying ull slvles and si?cs of baking
dishes into a bakerj-. The economy of
the practice is obvious. It saves the
building nnd the keeping of a fire and the
trouble of housework on what is possibly
