Architecture to be of the Spanish B
nascence— Girls to be Protected
in Recreation Hours
No one who visits the Whittier sta
school can fall to perceive the disa.:
vantages under which officials at
placed under present conditions. Th
hulldings are faulty in arrangement am
construction, limited In space and num
bed. and In many respects lnad*cjuat.
for the disciplinary aims of such an ir:
stltution. The dormitories, for in
stance, are In the top floor of the mail
bundling and the lavatories In the base
ment, The room used for the library is
entirely too small for the purpose, but as
there Is an absence of reading rooms
the former must be used for both libra
ry and reading room. There is no gym
nasium, an essential In such an institu
tion. There Is also urgent need of a
trades building and an increaseof trades
to those already taught.
Mrs. Mitchell, president of the hoard
of trustees, in her last annual report,
says: "Notwithstanding It ls only about
five years since the Whittier state school
was Inaugurated, many of its methods
are already obsolete in institutions, in
the fore-front of this branch of socio
logical reform. The classification of the
pupils and dormitory accommodations
should be Improved. The present ar-
rangement of the buildingsgreatly ham
pers in this respect. The boys, except
the very small ones, are accommodated
at present In the main or administration
building. This is not only inconvenient,
but disadvantageous for many reasons.
The remedy lies in the establishment of
the segregate or cottage system for the
smaller boys, andi for the larger ones a
series of one-story dormitory barracks
The farewell concert to be given to
morrow evening at the Los Angeles
theater by Miss Yaw and assisting
artiste, under the auspices of the Child
ren's Home society, promises to be of
unusual Interest and Is already an as
sured social and financial as well as
artistic success.
At this concert M|S3 Yaw will make
her last appearance prior to an extended
European tour, and for her numbers she
has chosen those in which her voice is
heard to its best advantage and which
are favorites with her admirers as well.
Bhe will sing arias from Mozart's
"Magic Flute" and Meyerbeer's "Star of
the North," that will give her opportuni-
ty for a fine display of fioriture, and in
the last named there will be an obligate
for flutes, In Celll's "L'Eco" Miss Yaw
will also be accompanied by the flu to.
and In a group of three ballads which she
will sing the latter part of the evening
•he will be able to show tenderness and
temperament as well as vocalization.
The work of Mrs. T. Masac is so well
known here as to call for no advance
explanation. She will assist Miss Yaw
with three piano numbers, a Moskowskl
caprice and two little compositions by
Chaminade and Paderewskl, respective
ly. Miss Eva Ellsworth, aleo a favorite
pianist, will act as accompanist and will
play the piano part in the opening num
ber on the program with two flutes and
L. Opid, the clever 'cellist, whose work
ls both musicianly and artistic, will be
heard In three solos, a delicious "Adagio"
by Barglel, "La Clnquantaine" by Ga
brlot-Marle and a "Serenade" of his own
composing. Messrs. Walter C. McQuil
lan and Wm. H. Mead will play the flute
obllgatos, and for the opening number
In part two they will play a flute duo by
Wlth such attractions In the way of a
varied program, popular assisting art
ists, a worthy object (the Children's
home), and last, butiby means least, the
chance to pay a farewell courtesy to
Miss Yaw, "Lark Ellen," the theater
promises to be packed to the roof with a
fashionable and-enthusiastic audience.

A concert Is announced for next Thurs
day evening at the P|co Heights Congre-
surrounding the drill ground. Such
barracks could in the main be construct

cost would be comparatively small. And
by adopting a picturesque style of archi
tecture, suitable to the locality, the ap
pearance of the grounds would begreat
ly enhanced. The administration build
ing could then be used for administra
tion purposes, anti would accommodate
the officers., the businz-ss and educa
tional work of the institution.

for many whom It is now difficult to
keep employed The man or adminis
tration building, contelntog the school
rooms, will be preserved and will be
situated nearly lr. the center of the
quadrangle with a lawn and fountain in
front as at present.
The principal structure W the new
series will be the gymnasium, which will
be 80x180 feet on the ground floor. The
building will be two stories high con- ;
talnlng a running track on the second
floor and equipped with the latest Im
proved appliances for physical training.
The frontage will be north by east. The
gymnasium will have four square tow-
'ere, one on each corner and on either
! side, arched, entrances with castellated
turrets. From this a covered arcade
with arched openings will lead to the
Sloyd room, the superflcialarea of which
will be 1200 feet. An arcade from this
will continue to the matron's room, dirk
ing hall and kitchen, school and. teach
ers' rooms and barracks of the smallest
I boys in the school, Company B.
Instead or facing toward the adminis
tration building it will front on a campus
of its own, though forming part of the
quadrangle. This is arranged to pro
vide a separate playground, for the
small boys, distinct from the larger
The matron's department will contain
dormitories, bath rooms, etc., and a full
complime-nt of rooms for all officers, A
! conrjectimg wall will extendi down the'
palm drive to the southeast boundary
of the administration ground's, where
there will be a gateway similar to those
at the main entrance, the stable and
farm. The wall will extend along the
southeast boundary and where it joins
the southwest there will be arranged
a room for band practice. Omthe north
west of the gymnasium will be the
building containing reading, dcrafting
and photograph rooms to balance the.
Sloydon the other side. The arcade will
extend from the west corner of the
Sloyd building along the northeast
boundary of the groumds connecting on
th? northwest and. Including the present
Company B cottage which will be trans
formed Into a much needed hospital.
Aboul midway in the west boundary
will come the barracks for three of the
companies, which, though detached, are
connected by the arcade, and they in,
turn with similar barracks for three
other companies forming an open square
in the rear of the administration build
j ing. A gateway in the center leads to
■ the drill ground and trades enclosure.
| On the southwest of the drill grounds
j are arranged the buildings for the va-
I rious trade.-; with the emgine and' boiler
I room In the center. These will consist
iof blacksmith andi carpenter shops pal
| tern, machine, shoe shops, foundry,
laundry, printing department and. a'.i
other branches requiring electric pow
er. The object ls to situate them on a
direct lin t ar«d operate by a main shaft
from the engine room.
The cannery, tinning and plumbing
departments and tailor shop are ar
ranged at right angles with those
named in the most convergent positions.
In this way three separate playgrounds
are provided for, and by placing the
administration building in the center all
! will be under the control of the superin-
I tendient. A complete electric system
will be arranged for throughout, utiliz
ing the power on the grounds.

named, will be one-story and all details

The girls' department, three-quarters
of a mile distant, has been recently ren
ovated, repainted and kalsomined
throughout. A new building Ls being
erected of cement for a milk, butter, veg-
I etaible and meat house. Ac soon as the
beat method can be decided upon the
: grounds here will be enclosed. The
school is situated at the junction of four
public highw ays and the girls are some
times annoyed in their outdoor recrea
tion hours by passers-by. They have re
quested this improvement from the
board trustees?, for their own protection.
Under the new administration corporal
punishment has been totally abolished
in this department, nor, it is claimed, has
any been In the least necessary.
The boys' school is divided into seven
companies, the smallest being Company
B. The youngest boy ls little Gilbert,
committed from a neighboring county,
who will be 8 years old on his next birth-
day. Gilbert has not a very clear idea
of what he is there for, but he Is the pet

Interesting Stories About Amazon
Army on Guinea Coast
One of the most picturesque of the
African institutions, which are disap
pearing as England, Germany and other
European nations take possession of the
continent, is the Amazon army of the
Guinea coast. It is possible that the
stories told of these Amazons have been
much exaggerated, but the accounts of
them given by entirely reliable authori
ties are too interesting to need embel
lishment of any kind.
When Captain Burton visited Cana,
in West Africa, the Amazon army, which
he first t ncountered near that place, con
sisted' of 2500 women, who were served by
other women, held as slaves for them.
The Amazon soldiers consisted of wo
men of two kinds: Those who were orig
inally spinsters, selected by the king for
the service, ar.d those who had been sep
arated' from their husbands. Although
enlistment among the Amazons was
looked on as an honor, it was also used
as a punishment for any wife whose
temper was so domineering that her
husband found her insupportable.
About one-third of the army had been
married women. The rest were maidens,
watched with the greatest care to pre
vent them from indulging in the human
weakness of falling in love. A fetish
placed' over the gate of the camp was
supposed to have the power of detect
ing them, but If. in spite of this, they
broke their laws of military conduct,
they and their accomplices were put to
Their uniorm consisted of a blue and
white tunic without sleeves, and a petti
coat, under which they wore a pair of
short .trousers, much like the bicycle
bloomers of the United States, ©yet
whole was strapped the ammunition
belt. The muskets carried by the wo
men were antiquated, and, as they
rammed the bail down on the powder
without wadc'iing. they were never likely
to hit anything they aimed at.
The Amazon army was divided into
battalions, one of the most curious of
which was the "razor brigade." armed
with razors two feet long, used In cut
ting oft the heads of enemies killed by
the others, or of criminals condemned
to death.—New York World.
Bisque of Oysters
Put three pints of freshly opened oys
ters In a saucepan with their liquor. slid
ing half a pint of water. Stand, the
suueepan over the fire and let them
reach the boiling point, skimming them
carefully. Just as they begin to bubble
lift them from the fire and press them
through a fine strainer with a potato
masher. Stand them, after stralntitg.
where they will keep warm. Next put
over the fire in a large saucepan two
heaping tab'.espoonfuls of butter. When
it is melted add two heaping tablespc or. -
fuls of flour, stirring It to prevent lump
ing. Add gradually a quart of balling
milk and the oyster pulp and liquor, Bar
ring all together slowly and constantly.
When it has boiled two mlnutesseason It
