SERYED THE TRIUMVIRATE
School Girl Cooks Gave a Lunch to
. the Commissioners.
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

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.

to several young households where the ef

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.

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

Mr. J. C. O'Looghlan -was beat man.

Among those who will take part and have
Etands will be Mrs. Lamont, Mrs. Rnmsay,
Mrs. Archibald Hopkins, Mrs. Skerritt,

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

a point of doing their marketing at the
attractive elands that willbc arranged

There will be a luncheon served, and later
an afternoon tea to wind up the entertain

Increased from 1C.57 to 17.49.
These figures are much below the annual

that these diseases do not, at this time,

THI3TT ITAD SURPRISES.
And Aro Now Wondering How to Act
"When Next They Meet.
They had eaten a philopena and as the
result was doubtful each decided to pay
forfeit, whicli had been left for the loser's
own selection, sayB the Pittsburg Post.
They happened to meet on the street that
day, and as he turned to walk back with
her lie said:
"I've Just come from your house, Miss
Edith, and I hope you will like what I
have left there."
"Oh, I'm sure I shall; you always have
such lovely taste. I, too, have Just sent
yo ua trifle which I hope you may find
to your liking."
"Oh, Miss Edith, you know I couldn't
help liking anything you would select."
"Oh, I can hardly wait to go home to see
what you have brought me."
"I, too, am curious to know what my
present is., But where have you Tieen?"
"I just came from May's. I had intended
to remain all the afternoon, but that horrid
little dog of hers made me so nervous that
I really couldn't stay."
"Don't you like dogs?"
"Oh, yes, some dogs; but this Is one of
those horrid little pugs I never could
bear a pug."
"Oh, Miss Edith, I thought you "
"Had too much good sense to like the
horrid things? Thank you! I knew
you would understand me, you always do."
"I er isn't that Dick Brownsmith com
ing toward us?"
"Why, yes it is. What a well-dressed
man he is."
"Rather, yes that is, barring his ties.
I never could think anything of a man who
wears red neckties."
"Why. I though tyou "
"Would never be seen wearing such a
thing? Thank you for your good opinion; I
won't."
"I ah well, here we are at home. You
will come In, won't you?"
"Why er no that Is, I really haven't
time. I I must go home and gee the loving
gift you have sent me."
"Oh, don't be in a hnrry about that.
You really ought to come In aud see my
surprise and pleasure when I first Bee
your charming present."
"You are sure to be surprised, at any
rate. Mlas Edith." said the young man,
with a sickly smile, as he backed down
the steps.
His words were verified, for she found
that lie had bought her a pug, while on
reaching home he opened a perrumed
packet to find she had sent him a red
necktie. And now they are wondering
whay to say to each other when they
next meet.
