PRACTICAL COOKERY. For several years the Cook's Company (City of London) has selected a number of children from each of the ward schools of the City, and has paid the cost of their education in practical cookery at the National School established for that purpose at South Kensing- ton. On Saturday afternoon there was an illustration of the results which follow the system. A dozen healthy-looking girls, selected from Aldersgate, Castle Baynard, and Portsoken Ward Schools, were tested before a number of ladies and gentlemen as to their knowledge of cookery after sixteen lessons. The programme consisted in providing the guests with such simple dishes as milk and lentil soups, fried soles, broiled mackerel, fish cake and pudding, chops, beef-steak puddings, liver and bacon, pancakes, rock cakes, fruit tarts, baked plum puddings, and ginger- bread nuts. The children drew lots for the several dishes to be cooked, so that none of them knew before- hand what her task was to be. Each child went to work with ready skill, and each dish was finished in the most admirable manner. Mr. Millar, the Master of the Company, addressed the visitors on the satisfactory performance of the children's duties and of the many economical lessons which, under the auspices of the company, had been imparted to them. So satisfactory had been the work that the company were determined to continue it indefinitely. It was hoped that these children would become teachers of cookery amongst the class in which they lived, for in the homes of working men the knowledge of economical cookery was too little known and too little studied. The first prize was taken by Alice Stattle, of Portsoken Ward School the second by Amy Bass, of the Alders- gate School; and the third by Annie Styring, of the Portsoken School. To each of these girls Mr. Millar presented a book on cookery, and presents of a less value were given to the other pupils. At the close a cordial vote of thanks was awarded to Mr. Millar.
