Cookery in Schools – March, 1876

The question of teaching cookery in the public schools has lately been much considered in England, and arrangements have been made by which the object can be effected. The National Training School for Cookery has been for some time in successful operation, and is now prepared to supply teachers qualified to instruct in this novel branch of school learning. The course pursued at present is for a number of the inhabitants of several adjoining school districts to form by subscription a fund sufficient to guarantee a certain rate of payment to the teacher. Sometimes a young lady of the locality is first sent to the Training School to take a course of instruction there, sufficient to qualify her for a teacher. At other times a teacher already qualified is obtained from the Training School.

Cooking ClassThe teacher gives one lesson a week in each school to a class of girls whose parents are willing to pay a small fee for this advantage. She may also, in addition, form classes of ladies who desire to improve their knowledge of cookery, and who, pay a higher fee for the more elaborate instruction they receive. In this way a great number of persons are benefited, and the instructress receives an income which may be sufficient; but, if not, it is supplemented from the subscription fund in the hands of the committee. Sometimes a separate school or class specially for cookery is established.

A writer in one of the London papers gives an interesting account of such a school, which has been opened in that city for teaching the children of the poorer classes the simple elements of cookery, and to enable them to prepare cheap and savory dishes for the sick and invalid. About fifteen girls attend— all that the room will accommodate. They pay threepence a lesson, and get besides a dinner of their own cooking. The school is held every Saturday, from ten to four. The pupils first go to market, a few of the girls in turn accompanying the teacher, to learn how to select the articles of food, and to judge of their quality and the proper price to pay for them. On their return, the proper modes of cooking the articles are briefly explained, and a written receipt is given to each girl, who is required to work from it. The teacher, of course, superintends the whole, pointing out defects, and taking care that the pupils are made to understand the virtues of forethought, neatness, and good management. There are usually visitors present, often the clergymen and other members of the committee, who all sit down with the pupils to the dinner which has thus been prepared. After this satisfactory part of the duty has been performed, four of the girls in turn are appointed to wash the dishes and make everything tidy.

  • Village Record on August 1, 1827—Death —Obituary TIME, which bears down every terrestrial object, is rapidly diminishing the list of our Revolutionary Officers. Ere long, not one will remain, to rehearse to the rising generation the glorious deeds of his day, whether exhibited in the Cabinet, or the Field. To the catalogue of our departed Heroes, is added the name of Major JOHN DAVIS, the subject of this brief memoir. The father of Major Davis, held a distinguished rank among the Provincial Magistrates of Pennsylvania. He raised and educated, by the industrious of Agriculture, a large and very respectable family. His son JOHN, at an early period of life, selected a mechanical profession; which he abandoned at the dawn of the Revolution, and entered the service of his country with the rank of Captain, which commission he sustained with the greatest honor, during the contest. He had subsequently conferred on him the commission of Brevet Major. Nothing could more highly redound in the credit of the Officers attached to the Pennsylvania Line of the Army, and more decisively prove their devotion to the cause, than the fact, that NO INSTANCE can be produced of a gentleman retiring from the service on account of the most discouraging prospects, as it respected promotion. If merit as MEN, bravery and fortitude as SOLDIERS, could have gained them rank, our Captains, Bartholomew, Christie, Howell, Humphrey, and the , though not least,’our gallant Davis would have succeeded to rank far beyond that of Brevet Major. After the close of the Revolutionary war, Major Davis located himself on his patrimonial estate, in the township of Tredyffrin, Chester county. Soon after this he contracted marriage with one of the amiable daughters of JOHN MORTON, Esq. whose name is enrolled among the Signers of our ever memorable Declaration of Independence. This lady deceased many years since, universally regretted, after having blessed her affectionate husband with several dutiful sons and daughters. Major Davis at different periods executed with talent and general approbation a variety of elective offices. He also held many commissioned ones, both civil and military; the most conspicuous of the former, was that of Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas; of the latter, that of Brigadier General of Militia. The person of Major Davis exceeded the common stature; was well proportioned and athletic. His features were unusually strong…

  • Village Record on August 29, 1827—Death —Obituary DIED, At Dandridge, Jefferson county, East Tennessee, on the 20th of May last, FRANCIS HICKMAN, aged 75 years. Mr. Hickman was a native of Chester county; and for some time a resident of West Chester. He loved a fine horse, and endeavored to improve the breed by keeping Old Paymaster, whose strain is still distinctly marked among us. In 1795, being an enterprising man, he went out to the West to seek his fortune, and finally settled at Dandridge, where he had a large plantation, various mills for grinding grain, sawing timber, cleaning cotton, &c. Without the refinement of learning he had a taste for poetry, and his farewell to Chester county is still remembered by many of his old friends. Like most new settlers, in a new country, he became, for pastime, attached to his dog and gun, and many a noble Buck and Doe has he dropped in their tracks, or arrested when bounding away, in far stretching leaps before his hounds. There is something exceedingly animating in hunting the deer; – far more than the fox. Reynard is a sneaking, cunning animal. You scarcely get sight of him. Not so with the Buck. I have heard the voice of the dogs behind the mountains of the Susquehannah, now almost lost in deep and distant swails…Mr. Hickman raised a large family in respectability and competence, enjoyed a good deal of life – loved his neighbors and friends and was beloved in return, and finally departed, past the time of much enjoyment and before the hour when life becomes a burden…

  • Village Record on February 1, 1826 — Death — Obituary Died on Tuesday, 20th December, at his residence, in West Fallowfield township, Chester county, Pa. THOMAS LOVE, Esq. in the 86th year of his age. …In his death Faggs’Manor Church has lost her best earthly friend, Chester county, one of her best citizens, and America one of her most devoted patriots…As a Patriot he acted his part disinterestedly, honestly, and consistently. When his country, nearly half a century ago, was not only threatened with European thraldom, but actually invaded by the armies of European tyrants, and pierced in almost every vein by European bayonets; then, with a warm heart and a strong arm, he marched to the field of battle: and like David against Goliath, or Joshua at the head of the armies of Israel, he did not rely upon his own, or his countrystrength, but upon that of God, who gave us national independence and national peace. Nor did he, as alas! too many do, amidst the dissipations of the army, forget that he was a member of the Church. Those who were his companions in the trying scenes of the revolution, can no doubt recollect the fact, that from his tent, the voice of prayer and praise was heard regularly morning and evening, when the call to march did not prevent; and when the national independence was secured and peace restored, he continued nearly fifty years, to give uniform, strong, decisive evidence, that he was really his countryfriend. As a Magistrate, he executed the duties of his office with much propriety, and unusual dignity. For although he had not made human law his particular study in early life, yet in consequence of the goodness of his heart, and the strength of his judgment, his decisions were generally correct; and rarely if ever, did a man execute the duties of that office, the same length of time, with making as few enemies. But more especially as a member of the Church, and as a ruling elder in the church, his character shone in its real beauty and its true glory…Ten days before his death, although at the advanced age of almost 86 years he had to face the northern wind the distance of 6 miles; yet he occupied his place in the sanctuary as honorable example to every member of the congregation. About 70 years ago, he was awakened to the concerns of his soul, under the ministry of Mr. Whitefield. At that time there was a revival of religion in this district of the country, and he was one of the subjects.

  • Village Record on February 8, 1826 — Death — At his residence in West Marlborough, on the 20th ult. JOSHUA BAILY, aged 78 years and 9 months.
  • Village Record on February 8, 1826 — Death — Obituary DIED, at his residence, in West Fallowfield township, Chester county, on the 21st instant, Col. JACOB HUMPHREY, aged 74 years and 3 months. In the death of Col. Humphrey, Chester county, has lost one of her most distinguished citizens, and the American people one of the early and steadfast defenders of their rights. [Revolution] Possessed of a manly form, a robust constitution, a patriotic mind and heroic spirit, no sooner was the tocsin of alarm sounded in the year ‘, than the subject of these memoirs flew to the tented field, bearing the rank of Captain. Here, in common with many of his fellow citizens, for seven long years he endured the hardships, suffered the privations, and encountered the dangers incident to the soldiers’life in those that tried men souls.’…He was present at, and fought in, the battle of Trenton and of Princeton – of Brandywine and of Germantown – of Monmouth and of York Town, besides in several skirmishes or battles of smaller note. At the cannonade of Trenton, I think it was, a musket ball passed along his forehead, directly over one of his eyes, leaving an indelible scar. At the battle of Monmouth a musket ball entered the side of the calf of his right leg, making an incision of about three inches in length, but happily not very deep. The ball was soon after extracted by the surgeon, and he experienced no serious injury from the wound. The scar of this wound was particularly examined by some of the Colfriends, when bathing his legs, but a few days previous to his decease. In another engagement, a musket ball struck the buckle of his left knee, and carried it entirely off – leaving a swelling nearly the size of a walnut on the cap of the knee, and causing a little halt in his walk ever after. All these scars he carried to his grave. …As a citizen, a neighbour, a friend, a husband, a father – and as a member of the legislature of this state, his worth is too well known to need a panegyric in this place – He was the friend and companion of the great and good La Fayette, and accompanied him in the barouche to Col. Filson, on the day after the visit to the battle ground near ChaddFord. Here, after breakfast, the writer saw these venerable defenders of our liberty, brim-full eye,’take the last – the last farewell of each other. On Monday, the 23d instant, his remains were interred in the Baptist burying ground, near his dwelling, amidst an unusually large and solemn concourse of friends and citizens.
