    One of "Nelson's school & science series'. The author aims to teach domestic science through a series of practical experiments as he explains in the preface: "The author entreats the teacher who uses these books to insist on the girls working all the experiments with their own hands. His experience with girls has taught him that they soon become adepts at manipulation, and that they are not one whit behind boys in their power of grasping the truths that the experiments are intended to make manifest. Hence he advises... that the simple experiments described should be performed by every girl, who will certainly more firmly grasp the fundamentals of Domestic Economy by practically proving with her own hands their reality'.
