"Mrs Ewing is a lady of pleasant address. She bas been conducting a series of lessons inthe old üniversalist church. tvhich somebody has dubbed 'Cliapel Hall.' In it she has a gas range and articles needed. She pares her bread, meats, salads, soups, or whatever is the subject in hand, before her class, explaining the chemical process and glving all tle reasons. TMiie whole lecture is carried on in a conversational tone. Her class has been more than pleased. Severa 1 have said that the one lecture on breadmaking was in itself alone worth all the course cost. Mrs. Ewing has been very much pleased with her elass here. She is reported to have stated that tlie management of the Ravenna elass had been careful, economical, and the most perfect of any she had ever had. This is the first school of the kind ever conducted in Ravenna. It has been a suceess. Those not attendinjr do not know what they have missed."
