A Woman on Stilts. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

A Woman ou Stilts. BILL CROWXSIIKET in an hour cf great paternal weakness made a pair of stilts for his boy, and on his way home set them down in the Archibald ?entry while he talked election matters over with old Henry a short time in the front room. Those stilts had not been in the house live minutes before Miss Martha Archibild had mounted them, and after making two steps and a stagger, she fell through the kitchen door and bumped her head on the st >ve hearth with distinguished success. Mrs. Archibald'* sister, Mrs. Oxtoby, was there for tea and tattle, and when she saw those stilts a wild ambition seized her to walk thereon, ' Abby, you fat sillybilly,' remarked Mrs. A, ' You'd better let those things alone ; you will only fall down and kill yourself and turn all the milk sour.' But caution was in vain Mrs, Oxtoby leaned the stilts up against the stair banister, and climbing over .got down on them,but before she could get her skirts restored to a decorous position the treach...

A GIRL REPORTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

A GIRL REPORTER. The smart girl reporter in the United States is employed on the ' Denver Republican.' She is a young woman, good-looking, and fairly glowing with the rosiest of health. Her name is Jennie Hopkins, and she has written a book and contri buted several very pretty ideal to the Eastern journals and magazines, but her newspaper work is the most remarkable. She has been with the ' Denver Republican' for two years, and in that time she has more than held her own against all the male talent in the town. She tikes assign ments like a man, and can attend to the routine of the courts or any of the public departments with as much ease as any gentleman on the paper. She goes everywhere, and is afraid of nobody and no thing. Her perfect manners and thorough ladylike qualities compel respect, and whether she is writ ing up a baseball match or a murder she wreathes it with a charm of rythmic language that asserts her to be an artiste. She writes society of course, but hesitates at n...

MISS FLORENCE MEYER, THE PIANISTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

MISS FLORENCE MEYER, THE PIANISTE. Miss Florence Menck Meyer, whose fame as a pianiste has just attracted so much attention at Vienna, is a sister of Dr. Felix Meyer, of Lygon-st., Carlton, Melbourne, and is now in the 24th year of her age. She was born in Melbourne, and at a very early age displayed considerable musical genius. Her friends took special care with her education, and in January, 1883, she went to Europe with her elder sister for the purpose of con tinuing her studies in the high-class schools of the Continent. Miss Meyer was evidently far advanced, for she took her diploma at Paris aim mt immedi ately, and subsequently obt dned similar honors at l.eipsic. Her chief tuition wis obtaiue l in Frank fort and Paris. In November, 1886, she gave a c ncert in Paris in aid of the sufferers by the great fl nod in the south of France, and then followed a series of Parisian triumphs. The ' Ualignani ' wrote of her :-' The Australian pianiste, Mdlle. Florence Menck-Meyer, has won ...

Ragged Schools. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

We cannot enter into the question of "Why should such exist," as a superficial   observer in Sydney, or a stranger walking along amid the throng of any large city would who has never felt the pinch of poverty or that deadning gripe which hunger has upon the very vitals. That man was not less a man who sturdily hammered on his last, while he gathered as the Great Master once did, those little ones round his feet John Pounds' name is one ever to be revered for the good he did when education was a thing to be bought, and so is that of Thomas Chalmers and Thomas Guthrie, who together stood on the bridge of Edinburgh and con- sulted on what could be done for the waifs, not only of Edinburgh, but of Great Britain. Nor should we forget that noble efforts have been put forth by American men and women, by the late proprietress of the Bon Marché in Paris whose funeral was graced by her pen- sionaries old and young. Thinking of these things and our attention being drawn to a small...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

Notes. -:o: - BY L. A. L. Fashion, like history, repeats itself, and the puffed sleeves, gathered waists, high     crowned broad hats, and buckles of our youth   are again in vogue, with shot silks and water-     waved ribbons. Some rich winter bonnets   are on view at Farmer's composed of the       latter ; one a particularly happy effort in millinery, which one could readily imagine was relinquished by its designer with a well earned sigh, is composed of moss-green vel- vet and surah, both shot with cardinal and finished with a cluster of moss roses in the shade known as apricot, strings of moire to match. Another composed of sapphire velvet   shot with cardinal, sapphire moire ribbon, and plush poppies in terracotta red.   Those who use artificial flowers for house decorations we would advise to pay a visit to Ducasse's in Hunter-street, w...

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

THE ILLUSTRATED SYDNEY NEWS. We have to acknowledge the receipt of the first   issue of the Illustrated Sydney News under the new management of Mr. John J. Horrocks; it is certainly cheap for sixpence. The size has been   enlarged to 36 pages, and a variety of interesting articles are given. 'The Anecdotes of a living Statesman,' are founded on a standard biography of a well known English ex-Cabinet Minister, who, it seems, revised the proof sheets of his own life, and marked for omission innumerable stories about himself, now for the first time published. Many of the States man's own remarks are given. This is a remarkable literary curiosity, which would have delighted the heart of Isaac Disraeli. An important contribution 'The Chinese Question, ' is from the pen of the   Special Commissioner of ' The Illustrated Sydney News, ' and will be found useful as a summary of the arguments for and against the exclusion of the Yellow Race from Australi...

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO A BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

TO A BIRD. Bright little warbler of the air. The world to thee I ween is fair, And free thy life from shade of care, So gaily dost thou sing. While from thy happy throat are sent, Those floods of song in ravishment, Thou shamest me without intent, Sad mourner that I be. But birdie dear, didst thou but see The world as it appears to me ;   Then "pretty," "pretty," might not be   The burden of thy song. To one who knows not grief or care, I doubt me not the world is fair, And "pretty," "pretty" everywhere       As thou dost iterate. But oh ! could I like thee arise, And wing my way toward the skies ; Not here mid human miseries One moment would I dwell. But once released from bonds of clay, I'd upward soar till thy sweet lay Did in the distance melt away Amidst an awful space. I d pause not till through shining breach, I'd catch in song that seraphs teach, Notes only angel voices reach,   Where my loved ones...

WAITING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

WAITING. Serene I fold my hands and wait, Nor care for wind or tide, or sea, I rave no more 'gainst time or fate-- For lo ! my own shall come to me. I stay my haste, I make delays. For what avails this eager pace ? I stand amid the eternal ways, And what is mine shall know my face.   Asleep, awake, by night or day, The friends I seek are seeking me : No wind can drive my bark astray, Nor change the tide of destiny. What matter if I stand alone ? I wait with joy the coming years ; My heart shall reap where it has sown, And garden up its fruit of tears. The waters know their own, and draw The brook that springs in yonder height,   So flows the good with equal law Into the soul of pure delight. The stars come nightly to the sky, The tidal wave unto the sea ; Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high, Can keep my own away from me.

Correspondence To the Editress of The Dawn. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

Correspondence To the Editress of The Dawn. Madam,—I am pleased lo learn that women are at   last to have, a journal of their own, in which something   more important than the latest fashions in dresses and bonnets may be discussed. THE DAWN, I understand, while not neglecting dress and fashion, is chiefly designed to be a paper in which women may express their opinions on political   and social questions which involve their interests ; and I hope those women who are endowed with the ability   to think and write will not be backward in giving expression to their opinions in your columns. As some slight encouragement to them, I venture to pen these few lines. If these are deemed worthy of publication, I may, at some future time, try whether       my domestic avocations cannot be made to afford me time to write again. My household duties take up   so much of my time that I have litt...

DENTISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

DENTISTRY.   In this science—for a science it now is, no longer prac- tised by the local barber, but by able and educated men— old England herself yields in skill to America. Already   two of our leading dentists hail from the land of Stars and       Stripes, and to these is now added a young Australian, who has graduated with remarkable success in America.   Dr. Arthur Bennett is the son of Mr. John Bennett, a well-known and highly esteemed resident of Sydney.     Dr. Arthur D.

Clippings. A BRAVE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

Clippings.   A BRAVE WOMAN. Henry Archibald, a laborer, working on the Rosehill racecourse, was brought up at the Parra- matta Police Court recently, charged with break- ing into the house of Hannah Holliday at mid- night, and stealing therefrom a sum of 5s. Mrs Holliday, who had been reading by the light of her lamp, saw him when he entered her bedroom and recognised him. She jumped out of bed and followed him in her nightdress ; saw him pick up his boots and hat, which he had left outside the fence, but was unable to overtake him. She went to the police station as early as she could in the morning, and he was arrested the same day at noon. HARSH TREATMENT OF A GIRL. A case which lately excited a good deal of atten tion (says the Melbourne Age) was again brought under notices last March in the Melbourne County Court, before Judge Casey.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S SYDNEY PROGRESSIVE LYCEUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

YOUNG PEOPLE'S SYDNEY PRO- GRESSIVE LYCEUM. A grand social was given to the members of the Lyceum on Saturday, March 31, by     Professor West. After refreshments, the children rendered songs, recitations, parts, and explanations very creditably. A vote   of thanks to Professor West was moved, se- conded, and spoken on by the children, and carried by acclamation. The whole concluded     with the Maypole dance. This institution is managed by the children themselves. The basis of the institution is good order. It   teaches self-reliance, tolerance not indiffer-     ence, courage not forwardness. Ethics ech coic. They elect from themselves a con-   ductor, treasurer, secretary, and committee to manage. We believe this is the first in- stitution of the kind started in the colonies,     and so far it augers a great success. Their   &a...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 15 May 1888

Three young women have taken degrees at the Melbourne University. The Rev. Dr. Jeffries says there are 5000 women in Sydney earning their own living. There are 20 women successful contractors     for the conveyance of post office mails from the 1st January in N.S.W. There are no less than 1450 women who have their names on the register of the National Division of the Sons and Daughters of Temperance.   Bishop Barry says that it has been amply proved that woman can hold her own in the   world of mind, but that it is in the world of character that she does and always will exert her most potent influence. Mrs. Hills, whose husband died recently,   leaving her with three small children to support, is an efficient laundress. Her address is next Gigmill Cottage, Marmion-   street, East Kingston, or office of this paper. The official who attends the "answers to     correspondents" letter...
