In the I excitement of preparing a dessert or cro quette they often climb up anil sit on the anus, and the only reason Miss Ilaylos linteifprei with their comfort Is her fear .of an accident, I The kitchen Is In the garret, oft the iRvmnislum; adjoining Is the workshop I where the boys study carpentrv. nnd the studio, where the pupils muddle In clay, ns n small girl put It. For some unknown reason the parti tions stopped two fet below the roof, rnd whtn a carpenter or a designer Is In dlssrice his little friends in the kitchen know everything without asking n ques tion This makes It awkward for the bo- with a sister. The cooking lessons are on Wednes day. The first grade girls have the kitchen In the afternoon and the second In the morning 'rom 10 3D until 12 o'clock. Last Wednesday a class of twenty three came In slim, skinny, colorless little erentures. but attractively neat and alert They wore white caps, slees nnd aprons and carried note books. Fach child provided her own enp and the assortment was amusing. There were nurse caps, waitresses' caps, Igranms' cars, with frills and strings, and chefs' caps, with reefs taken In I with safety pins to make them avalla- 1 hie. One smnll Roman girl wore her bibv's cap with a cotton pansy In front; i another cradle extract was orna mented with a pate buckle.

In the roll-call every nation ality of Knrope and two of Asia an sw ered 'Tresent " For convenience Miss Havlos called the girls bv number. Four housekeep ers were selected to prepare the lesson, which Included soup stock nnd maca roni with cream sauce and cheese. The materials consisted of one pound of beef from about the ankle, a pound from the shoulder, what the teacher I called "a choice lot of marrow-bone," a kitchen bouquet, one pound of maca ronl, a quart of milk and flour, butter, milk and condiments. I While thp four little cooks were busily preparing the foods the class took the recipes, which were thoroughly explained ln an adroit system of ques tioning. She began with the package of meat ln her hands. "Whnt is the first thlngr to No. . "Hurry nnd take the paper off." "Why hurry, No. C?" "Decause the paper will draw out the Juices." "Any other reason, No. 2?" "Vcs, ma'am: make It smell bad." "No. 21, can't you (rive that reason ln a nicer way?" "Yes, ma'am: the paper will give the meat a unpleasant order," and the i teacher sighed Three clean, white nap- ' kins were unfolded nnd three midgets, scarcely taller than the table, wiped the . meat and bones thoroughly clean. i "Ilnndla It daintily. If there are soiled pIiilps wash them: do ns vou would n baby's face," and the girl with the bit of I shfdder stpted fot the sink. "Oh!

She stood at the centre of the table with her back to the teacher and gued her classmates.

Ihnn XTInia Hat Iok una using "I'll box your cars, If you do that again." The comedy cook seized the Idea to represent the chastisement. All the while she had a knife ln her left hand, with which she was skinning the meat. "Now, No 19, what are you doing?" "Please, Miss Haylos, I was taking off the sk'n ind fat." with tho meek ness and innocence of Reynolds's whole choir of angels tn her little brown face. "Children do we need the fat for soup stock.'"' "Yes, ma'am " "Why, No 4?" "Because It Is rich In nutrlves." No 19 hunted in the tucks of her pinafore for a pin and only changed her mind when a girl threatened to tell teacher, Cut up the meat, No. 19. Hurry, F'.etse, so that you can take the recipe. s jour kn'fe sharp?" S'te was del'ghted that It wasn't, and It was droll to see her getting a private lesrton In the use of the file. "Liy the hones on the bottom of the pot. put the pieces of beef on top, pour In two quarts of cold water, cover , the pot, to keep the dust from Ret 1 ting In, and let It stand half an hour; this Is to extract the Juices from the meat and bones." Little No. 19 mixed up her measures and threw a gallon of water Into the pot. which she had the pleasure of called out with a teacup later. A tiabsmate was assigned to help her put the pst on the coil range, where It wan to simmer six hours. "Six hours, remember, children, of slow cooking, to get a rich stock," Not being familiar with a range, and ns chief cook, anxious to keep It from burning, she put It up on the Bhelf, three feci from the lire The reclpo called for a rich perfume; there was to bo thyme, sweet marjoram, Summer savory, nhallot. carrot nnd tur nips, nnd theje pale-fnced mites of womanhood tools copious notes nbout the quantities, the way to make q's of the carrots and turnips, to fry them brown 'ind the trentmeit of the bay leaf. That excellent lesson filled several pnges. anu was followed by tho m aca ronl, cheese and cream-sauce. The af ternoon class made bread and batter cakes. Only one loaf of bread was made, but It wns raised and baked In the hour Three enkes of yeast were used to teach the children the chemical principle as well as a principle of do mestlc economy. Only one lesson Is given a week. Con sidering the admirable system, the prac tical recipes and the aptitude and needs of the children the Instruction Is Insuffi cient. The dainties beloir to the cooks, who are at liberty to dispose of them as they wish Sometimes they are given to the regular teachers and occasionally they are sent In to the carpenters with tho compliments of the generous little cooks.

Melba Is not only a great singer buV a good talker. She has ,t lot of common sense. Thursday afternoon she sang for a boys' charity. After the concert she talked about the complexion, the econ omy of youth, the value of Intelligence and the promotion of beauty. The con cert tickets were fo each. Sherry's ball room was crowded to tho walls with philanthropic wom:n, society women and gentlewomen, who never took their eyes or glasses from her. After the song they talked about the singer. Very littlo ' was said about her glorious voice. It was her skin, her eyes, her figure, her hips, her good grooming that tho grande dames and the demoiselles ad mired. That they would have paid 10 apiece to hear what she said after tho concert to . few friends there Isn't the slightest doubt. When asKe i, whnt she did for her com plexion Melba snld: "Directly, nothing. Indirectly, a lot of things. I don't do any of the absurd things prescribed In beauty books, newspapers and adver tisements. One of the grandest precepts In the literature of Shakespeare Is 'Know thyself."
