The City Council has made another
advance toward settling the insurance
and fire question in Columbia. Im

the fire committee was instructed to
buy more hose and to investigate the
cost of a new automobile fire-wagon.
Recent fires here have shown that
the city is poorly protected. When a
fire occurs at night, it usually means
destruction for the house. The
horses are almost gone as far as
running is concerned. The active
members of the fire department do not
live near the fire wagon.

Let us step into the laboratory
class-room in the basement of the
Gordon Hotel Building and see what
the class is doing. The subject is the
old story of cookery. Before long
tables, forming a quadrangle, girls in
trim white aprons stand. In front of
each one is a gas plate, utensils for
cooking, baking powder and other es
sentials. Around the room are ranged
different kinds of stoves. A study it
these, with the comparative values
of fuel, forms one modification which
illustrates the changing attitude to
wards cooking. In the top of the
stove a bole has been made to allow
the insertion of a thermometer for the
purpose of testing the temperature of
A Flreless Ceeker There.
On one side of the room is a fire
less cooking box, on another a recent
invention in the form of a combina
tion stove and flreless cooker. It
has two burners for starting the
food and several ovens for continuing
the cooking process by the conserva
tion of heat The aim is economy in
the use of fuel and reduction of labor.
Instead of giving definite recipes.
Miss Louise Stanley seeks to make
her students independent of them by
teaching general combining propor
tions and the principles underlying
the combinations of food constitu
ents. The lesson was upon batter
cakes of various kinds. By experi
mentation the correct proportion -f
flour, milk, eggs and fat was found
for griddle-cakes, muffins, popovers
and waffles; the mystery was ex
plained as to why popovers rise with
out baking powder; the use of the
rising agency, as baking powder, was
studied. It waa found by weighing
the different kinds of flours that there
is great difference in their weights,
hence the quantity used must vary.
While developing these facta and
working out accurate recipes, each
student was busily preparing one of Miseourian
the different breakfast foods and as I them.

What are the comparative ...values
of food-stuffs? What ceastitatea a
welITbalanced meal? How caa food
values be maintained at diffsreat cost
apportioned to income? The selec
tion and cooking of meats; a more
general use of vegetables with a
knowledge of their peculiar food val
ues. These are a few of the sub
jects to be considered.
In another class-room a group" of
girls was found beginning the con
struction of a hat One' girl ex
pressed a lively Interest in this work,
declaring that it would be of the
utmost value to her and that she ex
pected to be able to trim hats for
her mother and sisters. She expects
to make a winter and a summer hat
to design the pattern herself, to con
struct wire and buckram frames, td
cover and finish them with velvet,
nets and straws, to make and put on
trimmings and especially to learn to
make bows of ribbon and velvet which
can always be used to trim hats simp
ly and artistically.

Learning- te Care fer Slek.
Not the least important of all the
lessons given will be those on the
home care of the sick. The practical
details will deal with the aick room,
bathing of the patient preparation of
food and co-operation with the doc
tor; also the care of persons in con
tagious diseases and the prevention
of the spread of the disease, together
with the isolation of .the patient, and
disinfection. Talks will also be giv
en on pneumonia, tuberculosis and
typhoid fever, showing the importance
of a knowledge o( nursing.
As a result of such training, what
was before drudgery will present new
and interesting aspects, and time,
strength and energy will be saved -by
the knowledge of how to use to bet
