undeserved? "Nothing In all my ca

more than chatter during my singing."
Onco when bIio was singing at the Ger

foods, arranging them neatly on the
table, arranging hills of fare that shall
bo both cheap and appetizing. Tho en
tiro care of tho houso Is also to be in
cluded In the work, which by Its most
ardent ndvocates Is known as "home

standpoints, tho pedagogical and tho
sociological. From the first It Is con
sidered as a manual training for girls,
which Bhall do for them nil that tho

second It la considered a necessary
