THE DESSERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
At a marriage supper of a deaf and dumb couple, one guest, in the speech of the evening, wished them unspeak able bliss. "I know what the nights of labour are," said the mother of six boys, as she sat down to mend a pile of trousers and jackets. "What is the worst thing about riches," asked the superintendent of a Sunday School. And the new boy said, "Not having any." A Vassar girl, being asked by her teacher what kind of a noun "kiss" was, replied with a blush, that it was both proper and common. "Charming little pink-tipped, shell-like ears you have, Miss Lottie. Did you ever have them pierced ?" "No, but I have had them bored." * * * * The following toast was proposed at a shoemaker's .dinner : "May we have all the women in the country to shoe, and all the men to boot" Every man thinks he is about right himself.

MAKING HER THINGS LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
MAKING HER THINGS LAST. Every housekeeper knows how careful treat ment keeps table-linen and household furni ture. Girls do not always know or remember that great care of their own little possessions will often enable them to dress nicely on very little money. A lady says : "When I was a girl there was one of my young friends who was distinguished for "making her things last." Her dress, hats, gloves and ribbons were a marvel of durability. I used to wonder how she managed to make them last so without their looking shabby, but I ceased to do so after I had visited her own home. The reason why her clothes wore so long was that she took such great care of them. Her dresses were brushed and folded away carefully, and the slightest spot on them was removed as soon as it was discovered/ Her hat was wrapped in an old pocket-handkerchief and put away in a box as soon as done with, the strings and laces, being straightened and rolled out most symmetrically each timé. Her gloves were never f...
TO RENDER TOBACCO HARMLESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
TO RENDER TOBACCO HARMLESS. .'Very few smokers realise the extent of the harm done to the mouth, heart, and nerves by to bacco," says a well-known physician in the In quirer, who has just returned from the Berlin Medical Congress. "When I was in Europe I learned of a simple and effective method of ren dering tobacco entirely harmless without des troying its aroma. The method was discovered by Dr. Gantrelet, of Yichy, and it should be re ; garded as a priceless boon to smokers. It consists >of a small piece of cotton wool steeped in a 5 or 10 per cent solution of pyrogallic acid, in serted in pipe or cigar-holder. This will neutra lise any possible ill-effects of the nicotine. In this way not only may the generally-admitted evils of smoking be overcome, but also cirrhosis of the liver, which is sometimes caused, by tobacco and lighter effects of over-indulgence, as headache and furring of the tongue, may be avoided. Citric acid, which was recommended by Vigier for the same purpose...
Nursery Helps and Novelties. THE CRY-BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
Nursery Helps and Novelties. THE CRY-BOX. JjITTLE MARGARET, aged four years, was a very sweet little girl ; but she had, since her third birthday, contracted a habit of crying when things did not suit her small ladyship. If she oould not have what she wanted she cried ; if she could not go where she wished, she cried ; if she had to do anything she did not want to do, she cried again. She did not cry for a short time only.but often for half an hour at a time, although her mother never altered a decision after she had reached it and knew it to be right. "But Margaret," her mother used to say in despair, "why do you cry so when you know you .never get anything by crying?" "But I want it," Margaret would sob amidst her tears. Sometimes her mother would go quietly out of the room, and leave Margaret to herself and her tears ; but she usually found her with her -dismal companions when she returned, so she concluded at last that leaving her alone did not better things, Besides she enjoyed...

HOLIDAYS FOR MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
HOLIDAYS FOR MOTHERS. MANY wives and mothers are labouring with hand and brain almost incessantly, day after day and year after year, to supply the oft returning wants of their families ; no other class lead such lives of daily sacrifice as do our patient, plodding mothers. They anticipate all our wants and needs, come and go at our slightest wish, with untiring love and interest in all that concerns us from early infancy until they sink beneath the burdens and cares of this life. From force of habit, brought about by the tender devotion of their hearts, they are always thinking and doing for others. Yet in many homes, no one seems to think of the mother's comfort, or that she can have any need for relaxation. Now, every woman who has led an active life needs to be released from constant toil by the time she is forty years of age. Those who love her should learn this before it is too late, and make it possible for her to take life easier and lay by a store of physical force against ...

LEMON JELLY is made after the directions given on each packet. For Imperial jellies, when turned cut of the mould, put a row of large cherries (or of plums) around the base like a row of beads.

EASE IN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
EASE IN SOCIETY. .?4'» ? OH dear, I can remember perfectly the first formal evening party at which I 'had a good time.' Before that I had always hated to go to parties, and since that I have alway» liked to go. I am sorry to say I cannot tell at whose house it was. But I could tell you just how the pillars looked between which the folding-doors ran ; for I was standing by one of them when my eyes were opened, as the Orientals say, and I received great light. I had been asked to this party, as I supposed and as I still suppose, by some people who wanted my brother and sister to come, and thought it would not be kind to ask them without asking me. I did not know five people in the room. So it was that I stood sadly by this pillar, and said to myself : 'You were foolish to come where nobody wants you, and where you did not want to come ; and you look so standing by this pillar with nobody to talk to.' At this moment, and as if to enlight en the cloud in which I was, the revelation flas...
HER HEART'S DESIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
BY PAUL CARSON. Jj> SPHERE comes a time in the life of nearly every P married woman when she recalls her girlhood, /^"?"^ compares it with her wifehood, and says, as , the case may be, "This is better than that," % or "That is better than this." It is nut m the J. honeymoon, nor yet during the first year of married life, that the wife knows whether her eJ marriage is a failure or a success ; but sometime she is pretty apt to ask herself the question, and to Honor Kent the time had come. It was one April night. Her husband had been home to dinner, and had gone "downtown," as often hap pened. Honor had washed her dishes, put her six months-old boy to sleep, and sat down to sew. It was a cold, rainy night, more like November than April, and Honor shivered as she sat at her sewing. The Kents lived in a steam-heated flat, and that sight the steam was low-suited, as often happens, tc the season, not the weather. Now, if she could have toasted her feet at a warm fire, while a tiny tea k...

POET'S PAGE. THE BRAVEST OF BATTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
THE BRAVEST OF BATTLES. The bravest battle that ever was fought, Shall I tell you where and when ? On the maps of the world you'll find it, not, 'Twas fought by the mothers of men. Nay, not with cannon or battle shot, With sword or nobler pen ; Nay, not with eloquent word or thought From mouth of wonderful men. But deep in a walled-up woman's heart Ol woman that would not yield, But bravely, silently bore her part Lo ! there is the battle-field. No marshaling troop, no bivouac song, No banner to gleam and wave ! But oh, these battles 1 they last so long From babyhood to the grave t
MY LITTLE DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891
MY LITTLE DAUGHTER. Would you know my little daughters, If you met them on the street ? They wear calf-skin shoes like "papa's," On their dainty little feet. Do you think their shoes are clumsy, With the heels so broad and low ? With the sole so flat and heavy, Scotch edge, and square-eut toe. Shall I tell you all about them ? How they sensibly are dressed ! How their hats are trimmed with ribbon, Not with bird, or wing, or breast. All their dresses are of flannel, And they're made to please their tastes. But you'll never find a corset Cramping small their girlish waists. Did I hear you say "old fashioned %, No one ever called them so ; They are straight, and strong, and healthy ; Quite new fashioned now, I know. How I wish that all the people . Would so dress their girls for health That our country, in the future, In their women would find wealth. Wealth of mind, and health of body, Strength to bear with care and strife : Strength to tom, to teach their children How to Uvea true, b...
