Would bk Cooks.—lt is terrible to contemplate what mischief a little welldirected energy may accomplish. Miss Pidler, a young lady who started business in Dunedin some time ago as a teacher of the art of domestic cookery, has just completed a professional tour of New Zealand, and is about to leave for Tasmania. While Miss Fidler has done a large amount of work in the boiling and stewing lino, it is .alleged that her lessons have utterly ruined the decorum and domestic peace of many a well-regulated establishment. Ladies whose tender fingers were rarely soiled by anything worse than the keys of a piano, have betaken themselves to the kitchen, and it is quite a common thing for their husbands to find them enamelled with dough. One gentleman informs us that some fancy fowls that he would not have taken any money for, perished during his absence, his helpmate on returning from a cooking lesson having decided to try her proliciency in boning fowls. Another declares that his household and all that inhabits it is being ruined and surfeited , with puddings, pancakes, and dishes bearing unpronounceable names. It is quite possible to have too much of a good thing.
