At present we have six girls and four boys who are enjoying our
sleeping porehes.
We hope next year to have a dally P. M. Class on Hygiene and
Practical Nursing, previously, we have been able to take but a
short period each day for instructions, but having the work well
organized and hoping to have some of our pupil? now in training
back next year, we anticipate work equal to that of the larger
Hospitals in the institutions of learning.
This subject cover too great an area to be considered in a few
words. To the inexperienced it might imply the cooking of three
meals a day. making of beds and sweeping floors. However these
three branches are of vast importance. But to the experienced, the
old adage which says "man works from sun to sun. but woman's"
work is never done, "has its full realization and the pupil is also
awakened to the fact more so under the old methods where poor
equipments and poor accommodations are encountered. As has been
the case with this year's work. Giving me the impression that good
equipments and modern conveniences and money spent for the
same by pupils and parents, cannot be strongly encouraged. That
these three choice words Mother, Home, and Heaven, which seem
so cloesly associated with the home may have there full realization,
where if good housekeeping is practiced by loving hands and under
favorable condition in the home. However we have covered a large
number of subject in the department this year. Teaching the bak
ing of bread and rolls, cookies, pies, doughnuts, muffins, biscuits and
plain cake, cooking meat in several ways, also potatoes in various
ways and preparing simple light diet for the sick, laundry work,
cleaning in its different branches, sanitation, domestic and personal
household needlework such as rugs, bed comforts, heming table linen,
hem stitching, feather stitching, simple imbroidery and infants cloth
Our Laundry is equipped with two steam washers, an extractor,
a mangle, a dryer, an ironing stove, sufficient flat irons, ironing tables
