Bespectacled mistress of the household scolds her cook, who stands by a table with a dead chicken waiting to be cut up. At the side sits a fireman, the subject of the conversation. (Madame tells the cook she shouldn''t have the fireman there; maid says he's not there for her but for the fireplace!) Large pans hang on wall, bellows hangs at side of fireplace. ( ?)
