A Flaming Christmas Tree the Cause of an Old Lady's Heath. - '. • A Christmas tree took fire yesterdiy after noon," at 5:30 o'clock, in the house of Joseph Penrose, on Gratz street, at the corner of Diamond, resulting in the death of Grand mother Fit/.-innlions, aged 70 years, says the Philadelphia Times. The tree was stand ing in one corner of the parlor, and was decorated with tinsel and other small trin kets and illuminated by small wax -candles. .Grandmother Fitzsimmons had made this tree her especial care. bhe had, with loving hands, placed on It the night before the various gifts intended for the children, and, as the day advanced, -sat- down in their midst to enjoy the felicity of the happy smiles arid playful shouts of the little ones. The children were all playing around the room, and Mr. and Mis. Penrose were in ad joining- apartments. All were happy, for this was Christmas day and this was grandma's tree. ■ ■ But suddenly, and in some unaccountable way, one of the candles became loosened and falling. ignited the tinsel on the tree, which in an instant was a sheet of flame. The children screamed loudly, and Mr. Pen rose and his wife rushed Into the room and, thinking the house was in danger, ran to the door to give the alarm. Grandmother, how ever, ran to the tree intending to remove some of the trinkets on it. in doing so, however, a light shawl which she had on her shoulders took fire and she was iv a moment in a blaze. She fell back on the floor in a dead faint, and before any help could bs given - was burned to death. Her face was charred and the skin peeled off to the touch, while her lower limbs were shock ingly burned.. The neighbors who hod rushed to the rescue iii answer to the alarm, put out the fire, which did no. damage to the house beyond charring a table and blacken ing the "walls. Medical aid was at once summoned, but it was too late to- do anything for grandma, except to alleviate her sufferings.' She lay 00 the sofa" surrounded by the weeping fam ily, her hands clasped in prayer, and there she died. There was no more singing in that house nor even in the neighborhood. All was silence. Sorrow hung like a funeral pall over every house in the vicinity. ' Even the passing children .stepped softly and spoke in whispers as they told each other the story of the awful death of Grand mother Fitzsimmons. • : Pitched on II In Head. Michael Hand was drinking vestcrday, when he quarreled with a bar-keeper in a Commercial-street saloon. The saloon man ejected him very forcibly from the drinking place through a swinging door, nnd Hand fell upon his head against the curbstone. His scalp was severely lacerated and re quired the attention of the Police Surgeon at the Receiving Hospital. -.-,.- - -_.-. .-: , THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO. SATURDAY. JANUARY 3, 1891-EIGHT PAGES. BOARD OF EDUCATION A General Onslaught on Superin tendent Anderson.. Assistant Superintendent Babcock Holds the Floor to Tell Director Woodward What Ec Thinks of Him. The Board of Education held a special meeting yesterday afternoon and closed up what has been in many respects the most re markable career of any like body since the administration of the " tough old board.'' It proved quite a busy meeting and much more interesting than was expected. Among the first matters taken up was the election of a principal for the Douglas School. Miss Tarpey and Miss Hattie Can were pi aeed in nomination and the vote re sulted in 7 for Miss Tarpey. A long petition was received from the patrons of the Douglas School, in Eureka Valley, asking the board to appoint Mrs. M. E. Moore principal. The reasons given for asking this appointment were that she has been a teacher in the Sauchez-street School for nearly fourteen years, had proven herself thoroughly competent in all grades-, ana had endeared herself to every pupil in the school and ths community at largo. QUIETLY S .UELCIIED. The petition, according to the usual pro ceedings, was referred to the Classification Committee, but which in this case was sim ply a quiet way of squelching it. Accompanying the petition was a commu nication Irom Mr.. Moore, personally apply ing for the situation. It was sent with the petition to the Classification Committee. Life diplomas were granted to Miss Ger trude 11. Cahulin, Miss Amelia Goldstein and Miss Mary ii. Keating. Stato educa tional diplomas were granted to Miss I'eile L. Senilar, Mis. Julia A. Itainey, Miss Hat tie J. Carr aud Miss Georgiana L. K. Elden inuller. SEP Miss Susan McGarey of the day school substitute class was assigned. to a vacancy iv the hittier School. The resignations of Miss .Myra A. Gibson, assistant in the Peabody Primary School ; Mrs. A. B. Anderson, assistant in the Hayes Valley Primary; Miss R. Abraius, assistant in the Columbia School, aud Miss Winifred White, assistant of the Broad way Grammar School, were received aud accepted. A leave of absence was granted to Miss M. E. Collins, of the Mission Grammar School, from January ."rili to March otli next. AS REGARDS a FEW SALABIKS. The Committee on Salaries recommended that the salary of the principal of the Grant Primary School be fixed at SUO a month, from Januaiy Ist; that of the principal of the Edison Primary at Sl3O a month, 10111 December 1, lSi'O, and of the principal of the Douglas Primary .100 a mouth ; al.-o that Miss Tarpey, who was elected to the priuci palship of mat school and has been acting as such since December Ist, draw that sal ary from that day. "1 he report was adopted. Superintendent Anderson, throng. 1 his assistant, Mr. liabcock, notiiied the Board by communication that under the rules of the department he could nut sign the war rant for SlL'oo to pay for seveuteeu type writers. These typewriters were purchased for the commercial school. The original order was for twenty, and as the cost of three of them was within, the limit that the board could authorize they were paid for. The bill for coal, of some $2500, about which there was discussion at the previous meeting of the board, was still objected to, and referred to the incoming board. The special committee to whom the matter was referred for investigation reported that samples had been taken from three schools and submitted to an expert. It was found as suspected, that the coal was not Welling ton, for which the contract calls, but Coos Uay and Gilmore, the cheapest in the mar ket. Further investigation was recom mended. VISITING COMMITTEE'S REPORT. Under the head of the retoit of the Visit ing Committee, Director Woodward read a lengthy document from which tie following is an extract— the extract embraces all of the report, except a few unimportant introductory lines: I find the leathers painstaking, earnest and conscientious, l-ut In ueed ol Uie encouragement tliey should have [ruin the visits and advice of lhe Superintendent, llow mile Interest Super intendent Anderson lias taken In .1111 schools is shown by an inspection ol 1 lie ollicial reports ol rhe iltllerent principals Inr the nasi year. In that time lie visited -to ot the 06 day schools aud none ol the 5 evening schools. To these 20 schools lie went til. limes, 20 ol these limes vis iting only the principal or one class teacher, but making a total of visits to principals ana classes ul 111. How lone these visits were and how cniirin". v lie iur-i ecleil the classes Is shown from the nine spent in examining une school, which was being iuvestlitated under charges, wuen he visited the principal aud 12 classes in one forenoon, in each of the mouths of January, August anil Septem ber he visited hut one school, In May when he attended me closing exercises, he visited 7 schools, the gieatest niimbet* tor any one monlli. Some of these :;_ dltlereui vlslis weie doubt less 111 011 the same day, but supposing that each was made on a separate day, we have remaining the fact that only ou 30 days, at tin- outside, of Ihe 200 school days in the year, did Snpeilu tendeut Anderson make even a pretense of at tending to (he principal duly of his position.

Those who have gone day alter day without seeing him call speak feel ingly on the subject. AT MEETINGS OF THE HOARD. Or the thlrty-tlitee meetings of lhe board lie lias teen present at seventeen, having come to the city lor lhat purpose uu several occasions. An In-! ecllon of the lecord shows no failure to draw lull pay. Comment Is uuoece-sary. In tins connection It may be well to call atten tion of lie board lv one of the slsteineuls in the' .Super luteiident's last annual rei oil. lie says: "lv lire selection of teachers, the most sacred duly Imposed upon the board, and the duly which moie than any other lhe members of tire board are least capable of preforming— lias no voice. Seldom Is be called upon to express an opinion el.. live io the cbaraciei or qualifications 01 any party proposed lor election us a teacher., etc." ' The fact is that lie has everything to do With the eleclluiijof all teacher-, and that It is In in. sole power to pteveui the election of any Incom petent ones. The School Directors may nomin ate and elect temporarily only such parsons as have the necessary certificates signed by the Mil eiiinenueiil, and Beet. on 18 of thu rules pro vid. s that be shall at the expiration of six nit-nth- probation report "upon the succesiJof the probationer, whereupon the board shall cmi firm or annul the appointment, according as the lepoit Is favorable or the reverse." tiring his (our yeais' Incumbency lie has never reporieu unfavorably upon a single probationer. I he cily and the board are therefore to be con gratulated upon having no Incompetent ie..cn em added to tlie derailment dining his termor office, though possibly, had be visited the schools, he might have round one or two' teachers open to the criticism be bestows so generally upon all. BABCOCK IXTKHItUITS. Before the Director had lung proceeded with bis reading he was interrupted by As sistant Superintendent Babcock, who raised the point of order that the report Is a per sonal attack upon a member of the board, who was not present. Chairman Dalton maintained that the point was not well taken because, even though absent in person, the Superintendent was represented by his assistant, who bad a right to answer the charges, if any were made. When the reading concluded Mr. Babcock again arose and branded tiie report as a cowardly and indecent attack upon one of the most tireless, faithful and conscientious officials who ever occupied a position of public trust It was so cowardly, he said, that if Superintendent Anderson had been present in person the Director would never have dared to make it. Frowning savagely at the Director, Mr. Babcock told him he had knowingly put a lal-e light upon the whole situation, and if lie bad the courage or decency of a mouse would not think of fathering such a shameless document. ONLY FATHERED THE BEPOBT. Mr. Babcock intimated very strongly that Woodward had only fathered the report by signing and reading it, but that Director Stone was in fact the author of it. He said it was a complete answer to itself, and hoped that in vindication of the man it maligned the press would give it thorough publicity. Addressing Mr. Woodward lie added: "You criticize the Superintendent for not visiting the schools, when you know per fectly well that the rules of the board do not require him to, but that such Is made my duty, and you daren't charge ins with hav ing neglected that duty." Again Mr. Babcock branded the report as one of the most contemptible things that nad ever taken place In the hoard, and was -inly sorry that Superintendent Anderson could not be present to answer it in person. Ho was compelled to bo absent on account of having to go to Sacramento to look alter matters in connection with the State Super tendency, to which office he was elected. The insinuation that the Superintendent was never in his oflice Mr. Babcock said wits basely false, ns either he or bis assistant had always been there, at the usual hour. BABCOCK WOULD KOI DOWN. During Mr. Babcock's remarks Director Woodwind attempted to call him to order, but lie would not down. Pretty nearly every statement be made Chairman Dalton under took to argue with him, nnd , rule out, but tbe angered assistant would not hush, and kept ou talking till ho hnd uttered what he [ had to say, He was only sorry, he said, in conclusion, that he did not have the time and strength (being nearly sick) to take the report and answer each point separately. Director Stone moved that the report be adopted, and the Chairman was about to put the motion when Mr. Dabcock demanded tho ayes and noes. Stone protested, ne said the ayes nnd noes were not needod. The Chairman, how ever, called for them, and to the disgust and dismay of Stone and Woodward, they and James were the only ones that voted for it Ford, Wempe, Tains and Dalion voted against it, and McDonald and Flint were excused. . The board then adjourned, and nothing was said about meeting again next Monday, as usual, out of courtesy to the new board, so as to formally turn the business of the department over to tlieir successors. HOW TO PREPARE FOOD. Dr. Steele's Lecture at Cooper Medical College. Best Methods of Extracting Nutritious Por tions of Meat — Value of Beef Tea and Blood as Food. Last night at Cooper Medical C ollege Dr. C. 11. Steele delivered one of the popular Lane Lectures taking for a subject "The Preparation of Animal Pood." He said: ••Tho subject of food is certainly impor tant, since it comes more directly than any otlier affair of humanity Into contact with the daily Happiness or misery of every In dividual. It is also a subject which, more than any other, has been consigned to un merited oblivion. The taste, rather than the value, of the food is usually the subject of consideration. . "What is animal food? Besides milk and Its products, every portion of the animal's anatomy. with the exception of the solid parts, as bone, hair, . etc., has been utilized to vary the monotony of the tabic. The brain, tho tongue, the stomach (In the name of tripe), the heart, the thymus gland or pancreas (uuder tho title of sweetbread), the liver and kidneys have each their vota ries. • But the staple article of animal food is the flesh, which is so much alike iv the birds of the air, the beast of the held and the fishes of the sea that a -ingle general de scription would suffice. The value of flesh as a food — that Is, its digestibility and nour ishment — depends greatly upon its method of cooking." Dr. Steele stated that thero was a fluid substance in the muscular fiber, known as muscle plasma. Alter death, this muscle - plasma coagulates and forms two bodies — one solid, called myosin, and the other watery, railed muscle serum. The muscle plasma (before coagulation) is a fluid of Blrupy consistence. This muscle plasma is the nourishing part of meat, and wheu de sirable for the invalid is best given alone in its natural state, before It coagulates. This can be accomplished in only one way. Im mediately after the death of the animal, be fore rigor mortis commences, the meat should be kept in a temperature of 82° (the freezing point), and cut transversely into thin slices with a cold knife. The frozen slices are then wrapped in linen and the plasma pressed out by means of a metal lemon-squeezer, also previously cooled. It should be eaten immediately, lv this very impracticable method all the nourishing material of the flesh Is obtained, and in its most digestible form. After the muscle plasma has been allowed to Coagulate into the solid myosin and liquid serum, cook ing is required to render it sultaoie for digestion. Having considered the semi-fluid contents of the muscular fiber or thread, we will turn to its walls — the surcoleiuma, or ihe muscle tube itself. This substance is always solid . and is so strong thai it is ruptured with diffi culty. This sarcoleiuuia is solid, aud re mains so even after long boiliug in water. It is, however, slowly dissolved by simply heating it in dilute solutions of .acids and alkalies, and in the digestive fluids of the body. As meat always contains the neces sary proportion of acids or alkalies, this sub stance is softened by prolonged cooking in warm water in such a way as to retain the juices in the meat. If, however, the tlesh is placed in gradually heated water and vio lently boiled, so that the salts are absorbed from the meat by the water, the sarcoleiuuia becomes hardened and tough, and the well cooked meat becomes insipid and stringy. Blood would itself seem to be the ideal food for nourishing the living blood in our _*- teries and veins. In Paris it is unite the mode for fashion able ladies and their escorts to revive their energies by a visit to La Villette and drink the fresh, warm blood from the cattle, so.d thorn by tile butcher txl 80 centimes the. glass. Hut sucli blood lias no mysterious life-giving power. Meat contains 20 per cent of albumen, and blood only 10 per cent, and is eveu less nutritious than ordinary beer. BEHEADED FOR A MISSTEP. How King He, la/ in of Dahomey I'tlni-iieil line of the ltoyal Urine. t*. De Conrville, the French Envoy, thus de scribes his first interview with the King of Dahomey : ■ fffvM Amazons In their white uniforms were hurrying about; troops of slaves escorted men over whose heads were held golden um brellas, and whose lower limbs bore the blue garter, the Dahomeyan badge of nobility. All were converging toward a low nnd large building in the center of the town, whose whitened waits contrasted with the palaces of cane' ami hardened mud surrounding it, and iv which dwelled the aristocracy of Da homey. The low building was the residence of royalty. Not more tnan twelve feet in height, and constructed of sand brick plas tered over, it was nevertheless extensive and commodious, being quadrangular in form and extending about HOO leet on each side, in closing nn ample court-yard. De Courville was escorted into the court-yard and there, be says, he met a sight the grotesipieness of which will haunt him as loug as lie lives. On a chair, or throne, covered with lion's skin and shaded by an umbrella of gold «nd silver, sat "Bedazin, the chair being on a platform raised about two feet above the level of the yard. On each side of the throne stood a powerful Amazon, carrying drawn in the hit hand a short heavy sword with a bright, keen edge. About the King were ranged a score or more of his chieftains. On the opposite side of the yard was another platform, raised at least three feet. Along the edge of this plat form were imitations of lamp-shades, or re flectors, as if some one had tried to devise a theatrical slit us closely as possible under the circumstances. On the * stage some twenty women wore leaping and dancing with all the suggestiveuess of the can-can, but without the inimitable Freucliiness, which has made that performance attractive to many. The women were handsome negresses, evidently from the royal harem, and they seemed to treat the dance as a compulsory duty that could not be over too soon. They had manifestly been trained to the performance, and handled their heels remarkably well considering their limited opportunities for satisfactory rehearsal. The King received De Courville as an old friend and caused a stool to be brought for him to sit down on. The Frenchman had hardly been seated when one uf the dancers made a misstep. The King was swift to no tice it. He said nothing, but with his right hand made a peculiar sign to the Amazons not unlike the '"police verso" of tho ancient Romans which condemned the unlucky gladiator. The two guards strode swiftly to the stage. They seemed to know by instinct who was indicated. Seizing a young, fine looking woman among the dancers, they dragged In r from the platform and before she could titter a shriek she was beheaded, the head rolling almost to the feet of the King, The dancing wont on just as if noth ing had occurred, the remaining dancers not daring even to notice tho fete of their.com panion. Bedazin was no doubt secretly anxious to hear the news brought by the French Envoy, for a few minutes later he arose from Ins throne and retired to his audience chamber, the performance ceasing as soon as his back was turned.
