Well, it looks awfully cost, but oh, the time

Ob, after boarding bouses it ia delicious to
have a home. Why, the smell of cooking for
twenty or thirty people used to come np-stau-s
so wo always knew what we were go
ing to have nnd felt as If we d eaten it before
we went down. In the morning It was the
smell of sizzled eggs, at lunch the corned beef
hash or fish balls, ut night the roast meat,
onions and sometimes corned beef and cab
bage. That is over w ith, thank heaven. My
tiuiu is my own, so I cook the breakfast on
our little oil stove. We have oranges, baked
apples or grains, eggs or loin chops, rolls and
coffee. I order the things for breakfast over
night, ami have the grocer, who is just
around the corner, send them in the morning.
"The elevator ly, whom we each tip with
a quarter every week, floats serenely up with
Uiera and leaves them outside our door at 7
o'clock. After breakfast a young hired girl
conies in, cleans the place and stays until
lunch is over. We all manage to be in for
lunch at 2 o'clock, but we usually go out to
dinner. This is when we 'spongo' on some of
our relatives or friends, but frequently we
are all at liberty to go to a restauraut. What
lots of fun we have experimenting, and we
catch glimpsesof all sidesof life. One night we
dine at Delmonico's in state; the next night, to
economize for being extravagant, we feed at
an obscure hostelry on upper Sixth avenue.
Or we try the Bohemian tack, and have a
table d'hote dinner at oue of the Italian or
French restaurants in the neighborhood of
Union square, lue beauty or the arrange
ment is we have no chaperon and no use for
