A IVactteal and Pretty Affair Ar- ranged by Supt. 1'uwcll "What -Eighty r.ofthuii-3 "Will Do. The venerable and moss-covered joke about the terrible effects of the .American piri's amateur cooUiujr was peniiuiicntly buried Testcnlay afternoon at Uie Jfjuee School building, where tliirteen pretty Kirls of iiiss Palrley's eighth Rrado served luncb to a pHr?y toimlbtiiifr of Conmiis slonors Itoss, Powell and TruesilcH, Su perintendent Powell and Supervising Prlnciial Clarke, of the District schoolb; liiss Kuiina 8. Jacobs, in charge of tho culinary work in the schools; Miss l-'alrley, of tho Force School, and liuiory Fouler, of tho wa&uliiRtou Times. The entire lunch, and it wnsone of the daintit ever served in WuMiinutoii, was cooked and Eurvcl by public hdiool k'Hs, who had two years of truiniiiK in xok ini, roprcbOiitiiiB a tqtiil of eighty lessons. It Avas a rcpicMsiitativo lunch. The leg of mutton represented the most dirflcult accomplishment in the cooking of im-.-its. Tho tomato Mijad with Ljomiaisc dress ing was a delicacy of perrcvliou in Uiat line. The cream of asparagus required the most careTul ireiiarutjon that could bo glveirto any fouji, and the mouse, frozen deshert, was as far ahead of Ice cream us that popular dlMi is in the lead of the Irish potatbl Tlie arrangement of the table and the Eerving of the lunch represent the last work of the little artist in cooking before she is sent out Into the .world to be the mistress of her own kitchen. One pretwy little miss of twelve years was the chief waitrej-saud played her part with that exactness of movement aud im- mobility oLcountenance which cliaraterlzes ' the butler of high degree. j Although . there were thirteen white- i aproned lady chers preparing the meal le hind a set of pretty Japanese bcreens. scarcely a sound could be heard where the ; guests were seated, so perfect was the system and so well arranged were tlie kitchen utensils. ; Each feature of the lunch was In charge of one girl. Each kuew her part and Uie lunch as a whole was greatly enjoyed by the Commissioners and other guests. I After coftee had been served coffee, S by the way, such as we do not get in the ; various lunchrooms of the city, and rarely at home Commissioner Ross, on behalf of hlft conrrpros. th.nibrd tin jvfiubU'd j youg ladles and spoke of their practical ' Hcomplielimeuts In the most enthusiastic manner. Supt, Powell followed in some wcll choMU) words- of appreciation. Mr. Chirk and Mr. Foster also sp-iko in pralfe of the lunch. Since its inauguration in the public r& OrJQ This Joke Is schools, four or five years ago, the cooking lesson has become almost as necessary an adjunct to the education of the girls as any other branch of fctudy. The system at first was received with some criticism on the part of parents arJO the girts, but its practical success was so marked and the lesEoifs are so interesting that it is enjoyed by the gills as much as manual training by the boys. Miss Jacobs may well point with pride to several young households where the ef fect of her work is being daily dt-moimtra led. The amateur cooks were: Anna Kcyscr, i Mary Ball, Aline Lunsbnrgh, Adda Wil- ! cox, Bessie McChesney, JC1I1U1 Emmons, Mary Linn, Annie Dillow, Mabel Uould, Lucy Hayes Breckinridge, Eniille Fitch, Mary Foley, Etta Miller.

' I TWA kiiuli " ilMllfl ImM! 111 ,4 W Wife r ) - h ritACTICAL FJIENCIJCOOKIXG. Economical Menu. for a Savory Sum mer Dinner. (By Mrs. Will H. Low, a French woman with experionce in the method of cooking as practiced in her rativo land. Copy right, 1S05, by Mrs. Will H. Low.) MAKING GOOD BOUILLON, an economical way of making good bouil lon is by using anything left over, in tho way of meat, which can be, of no rnoro uec for the table, as long as it is ttlll frefh and good. Thcbones coming from thoroast beef, T;he giblets from the poultry or the carcass of any bird. When I tay giblets I mean not only the gizzard and liver, but also the' feet of chicktu ard turkey (the feet of other fowls like goose aifd duck aronotgood), the necks and head (the heads of duck andgooe excepted) and the fmnll last joints or the wings. The feet aic very gelatinous, and add greatly to the quality of the bouillon. They are coveted with tcnlcs, which are easily fcraped orr alter plunging- the feet for two or three minutes in boiling water, or putting thtm for an Jnbtant on red hot coals. When the claws are cut off they are clean and ready for tho pot. Tho galls should be carefully removed j jt-v Scene at the Force Buildine. from tho livers, without bursting, for tho I liquor contained iniside is to Utter that it spoiis anything with which it romes in ! contact. If the liver is spotted at tlie place from which the gall has lieen re- ! moved, ait out the spotted port. Cut open j the gizzard, remove the lwgofsand con tained inside and wash them. Singe the neck and wings and plunge tho head in boiling water, fo that the feathers will I cotnc off easily. Cut ofr the backs and j wash carefully inside the mouth. In fact, ! the giblets, carouses or Lones of either ! beef, lamb and mutton or vial, alone or ! together, will make a vry good bouillon. A Delicious Summer Soup. Bouillon is I mode in exactly the same way uk inrti- j cated for pot-nu-fen, with tho exception of the quantity of water used, which i should Ikj one-third less in proportion to i the weight of the material used to make it. All thete debris ore not as htrong as good fresh Icef, and consequently will bear less wator. Avoid using fat; it dors rot add to the quality of the Louillon; it only makes it greasy. Cut the bones used into pieces. Knocked Out. '.,4- A saw for that purpose is a necessary article in a kitchen. If you l.ave not enough material lert over to make as much bouillon as j-ou wish, one or two pounds or shin of beef can bo added. A small piece of savory cabbage, as big as an apple, added to the vegctaLles mentioned for pot-au-feu, would give a nice flavor. The only drawback would l)c that the bouillon wriuld not keep as well. Cabbage sours very quickly, and especially in sum mer. The bouillon in whicli cabbage has been cooked would not keep more than twenty-four hours. Skate-Fish With Browned B':ttrr (in French, rale au beurre noir). I want to say a few vords in favor of itlifh which can be obtained here (at least in New York, at Fulton or Washington markets) a ::d to which Americans do not do justice. The reason may be, that the proper way of preparing it lias not yet been tound in this country; but in France .it is appre ciated by the most refiued gourmets. When full grown, it is a large. Hat f:sh, very much like a kite in shape; it lias also a long tail and transversal boi.es, nil through the body. When it is very small, that is, as big as a, flounder,--afLer being skinned, it is fried. When It Is large (and. some of them weigh as much as ten or twelve pounds), it is boilrdand pr pared with different sauces. However, the lavor- Ito way in Franco dt eating it la with browned butter. I The dealers cut jit into pieces and sell you as small a quantify as you wish. The center pieces aro the thickest and the best. I have heard it called' lit Washington mar ket by Its French namd, "rale." Wasli two pounds ofcekate-fislr, carefully scraping orr with a knife the slime with which tlie skin is always covered, especially when it is very fresh'. Put it to cook; In enough cold waterlo cover it, and with a handful of salt. Bpil 1 for fifteen minutes, and take It out on a platter. Now scrape off with a fork the.skiti which covers it on both sides. Ou one sIUo the skin la gray, and it is white on the other. Place tho fish on the dish on which is going to he served and keep it warm. Meanwhile, put lu the frying pan tlie size of two large egga of butter, with a piuch of salt and popper. Brown it on a good fire, moving it about lu the pan until it is almost on the point of burning. Do not let it bum, however, as it would become bitter, unpleasant in appearance, and In that condition would spoil the fish. When browned enough, add to it two tablespoonfuls of. vinegar, let itcome to a boll, pour on the fish, sprinkle over some chopped parsley and serve. I have had American friends at my table who have found rate a delicious dish. I hope that ir any of my readers try it, it will become with them a favorite article of food. Lentils with Butter I do not think that lentils are appreciated here much more than the skate-rish. Prepared, however, in the same manner as the white beans, they make an agreeable change, especially in the winter, when fresh vegetables are scarce and dried ones have to be resorted to. Tne largest ones aro the best. Salad of Escnroljo or Endinn. I have heard thiB plant, called In the markets so often by its French name "escarolle," that 1 have concluded tliat it must be known under this appellation, as well as by its English name, "endine." It looks some what like chicory, although the leaves are large in comparison.. Like other salads, nothing but the white part of the leaves should be used.lt being tho most tender. It Is generally clean, and needs little washing, if any. Use the whole leaf, as, unlike lettuce or ro mainc. it has little or no rib. Cut it in two or three pieces, separating It in the middle. When in the salad bowl, sprinkle with chervil, taragon and chives. Dress with salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. Chtiime Wuutod. Mr. Poorpay Iwaut u change my room.

SOCIETY GIRLS' LATEST FAD Telephone Teas Are Informal, But Somewhat Exclusive Affairs. Mr. and Mrs. A. L-. Barber Enter tufned Friends on Tholr Yacht " i'Sapphlro" Other Events. The society girls of San Francisco, who are always, progressive In their ideas In all things in as well as outside of tho fashionable world, have instituted this season a new order of entertainment that is, bo far as the name goes it is new. In reality it is an old friend In a new guise, none other than the regulation afternoon tea. In this instance, however, the San Francisco girls have dubbed it the telephone lea,-inasmuch as all Invitations for these entertainments are sent by the hostess of the afternoon over the tele phone on the morning of the day ou which the tea is to take place. It is thus much less formal than an afternoon tea for which cards are sent out, and the company is a smaller one becauso of the fact that no one Is asked other thuu such as liappen to have a tele phone In the house. At first sight it might look like a big boom tor the telephone company, but in reality nolhingof tho kind Is intended. The girls generally meet at the telephone teas to discuss mainly their respective plans for the summer, the last new engage ment announced, and the latest morsels of society gossip generally. The plans for the summer have the right of way, however; so much so that, according to tho authorities on the subject, even the all-important subject of new gowns and fetching toilets are for the time Elven a place in the background. Whether or not this is true, the idea of the telephone tea being a new one In Washington, it is given as a hint for what it Is worth, that those who choose may follow in the lead; of the rich girls on the Pacific slope. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Barber, with their daughter and ton, were- the entertainers of the afternoon yesterday on board their yacht Sapphire, which was anchored, off the whnrr at Geoigetown iiiHi-uu oi at the Analostan boathouse, as was at first planned. The guests who were enter tained from 3 until 7 o'clock in the altor uoon were conveyed to the yacht in small boats aud enjoyed to the fullest extent the pleasantlittlechange from the conventional iu the matter of tho entertainment gener ally. The bright afternoon after the long period of cold aud rain Eufiiccd to bring out the guestsiularge numbers, so thatthe responses to the informal invitations wero quite gen end on the part or Mr. ai:i Airs, butters friends. Informal as was the cccasion, the yacht had bce-u put in gala dress for the reception of tlie company, and as an in spection of eery part and pomoii or the floating heme was enjoyed by those who visited it, the effort en the part of the crow to have everything in the most ship shape order was very apparent. The brasses shone in the bright Funhght and in the cabin the unusually comrortablo rumlshings were added to by iloral decora tious. Flowers were also on the table from which the guests were served with a light collation. At the parsonage of St. Patrick's Church was celebrated yesterday morning the rn.tr riage of Miss Susie E. Fletcher to Mr. Sumner Albert. The bride wore a pretty traveling gown of made cloth, and carried a bouquet oC me-rmet roses, ami had her sis ter. Miss Kaf i Flrtcher, as maul of honor. Mr. J. C. O'Looghlan -was beat man. The- wedding- party was quite a small one, and consisted of the irnniediuto rela tives of tlie bride and groom. Kv. Father Uloyd iierformed the marriage service.

Among those who will take part and have Etands will be Mrs. Lamont, Mrs. Rnmsay, Mrs. Archibald Hopkins, Mrs. Skerritt, Mrs. MacDonald and Mrs Preston Sands. A notable feature of the Market Garden will be that the usual market prices will prevail, and it Isthcrefore hoped that every one interested in the welfare of the Chil dren's Hospital and-Daisy Chain will make a point of doing their marketing at the attractive elands that willbc arranged for the occasion. There will be a luncheon served, and later an afternoon tea to wind up the entertain ment. The tea will be at (3 o'clock. A Llttlo X'rofit.

These, added to the twoinMarch, aud oneln April, make butsix. deaths fromtbis malady since the first of March last, as against sixteen during the same period last year, aud twenty-seven in the year before that. The limited number of cases of diphtheria and 6cariet fever, and of that number of deaths therefrom reported goes to Indicate that these diseases do not, at this time, present any alarming phase. The usual summer ailments among young children have not as yet tnadu their appearance, and hence the mortality among this class is at the normal. GERMA2f-AMEHTCA2fS STING.
