MILK-RISING BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

MILK-RISING BREAD. SBLBCT an open place where the sun will shine all day. Place a box on a bench. When it gets warm from the sun, make the yeast in this way : Take a half gallon crock and scald it, throw out the water, and put in it two cups of sweet milk, take the crock to the stove, where you must have the kettle boiling, fill the same cup with boiling water and pour immediately on the milk, which will scald the milk and pre vent its souring, and will make it just the right temperature ; add a teaspoonful of salt, have the flour sifted and stir it in fast, until your batter is stiff enough for the spoon to stand upright in it until you count five moderately slow ; if it falls before you count five, the batter is too thin ; add flour, and give it a quick, hard beating ; leave the spoon in and cover with a cloth and a tin plate with a little weight to keep it down close. An earthen lid is good. Set a tin-dish on a bench, first warming it, place the crock of yeast in it ; if wind sho...

THINGS TO REMEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

THINGS TO REMEMBER. Dirty glass bottles may be cleaned with crushed egg shells. Dip brooms once every week in hot suds, and they will wear much better. Use a clean oyster shell to scrape pots and frying-pans with. Use turpentine and machine oil to polish your sewing machine. Mice object to camphor, it may be sprinkled with advantage about their haunts. Do not allow ashes, burnt «inders, pie-juice, etc.. in jour oven ; keep it clean. Use soft water and a few drops of turpentine and a little sugar with your stove polish. Kxamine nutmegs by pricking them with a pin : if the oil spreads it is a sign that the nutmeg is good. Use flannel to wash the children with in winter, and they will be good-natured while bathing. Geraniums that have been used for summer bloomers will not flower again until the late spring months. Geraniums for winter blooming should he grown specially for that purpose by keeping the flower buds nipped until February. Do not, introduce your girl friend to the gentle m...

THE QUESTION OF SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

THE QUESTION OP SERVICE. BY 'NIL DESPERANDUM.' 'III* w^y Y /1 HAT is to Le done when a young lady whose education is not oí a sufficiently high order to enable her to go out as "finish ing'' governess, is compelled by circumstances to gain her own living ? The first idea that will naturally occur to her is to seek a situation-no, engagement is the term in this case,-as "lady help" or "useful companion ;" whereby, she fondly imagines, she will attain her object, and at the same time, keep up her position ; she accordingly enters in one of these capacities, a family where no servant is kept, or perhaps, only a little girl "to do the rough work." As suredly she maintains her position, insomuch as she is styled "Miss So-and-so," and takes her meals with the family ; so far, her expect ations are realised, but what of her duties ? Those of a general servant are light in com parison, as the latter personage may, when her day's work is over, or during its occasional pauses, sit down in her...

ECONOMICAL DRESSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

ECONOMICAL DRESSING. 'TTLWAYS something about economy !" we [*? hear some young woman exclaim. Of course it is trying but it must be done. There are many dont's to be considered. Don't select novel materials, high colours, prominent figures, or stripes. Don't buy cheap shoes or gloves ; there is no economy in this. Don't be in a hurry to buy winter clothes in the autumn when the goods are just opening. Don't buy silk or velvet under 5/- a yard for a dress or trimming. Buy good calico for underwear and make them yourself unless you are a very busy woman ; if so, buy good materials in place of poor loaded with cheap embroidery. Use flannel that is part cotton and it will not shrink so much. Always keep a dress well freshened up as regards the skirt braid, buttons, and with clean ribbon basted in the neck and sleeves. Clean off any spots with the recipes given in this magazine at different times. It is the little odds and ends that eat such fearful holes in a scantily furnished pocket-...

NOVELTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

.NOVELTIES. |^-^" THE newest salad bowls and "helpers" are in crystal. THE newest bonnet fastener is a small crab in pink coral. A TINY satin muff for a little girl has a basket painted upon it, in which nestles a morsel of a kitten. CABVED leather work is now used in frames for fire screens, the leather being softened by a special process, and tooled by hand. A NOVEL and elegant brooch pin shows a single buttercup in rough gold on a bar tipped by a pink pearl. The centre of the flower shows a pearl. A NOVEL mop for dusting pictures is in croc het, and looks like bits of white and red coral set on the top of a slender rod. At the end is a bow of ribbon and a loop to suspend the mop. LADIES who understand how to hammer brass, succeed in making very handsome screen frames. Some are attempting the difficult art of carving the leather, which gives an extremely' rich effect of design in the sharpest relief. THE small rolls or flat sachets of silk oi lmen with fringed ends, tied about wit...

ABOUT BABIES. TO NURSEMAIDS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

ABOUT BABIES. To NURSEMAIDS AND OTHERS. 97THEN you take the children out, see that ***\, tne child in the perambulator is not ex posed to sun or wind. A baby's eyes are very sensitive to the light and suffer agony when unsheltered from a strong light. Don't stand gossiping to your friend. I have seen nursemaids chatting at draughty corners, while the poor little baby lay in its perambulator exposed to a cutting cold wind, and its mother would wonder how it could have taken cold And don't on any account take the children into any house without first asking your mistress. There is no doubt many infectious illnesses have been caught from that cause. Some ignorant girls are very foolhardy with regard to infection. They go into houses where scarlet fever or measles is raging, thinking no harm can be done, especially if they happen to have had the complaint themselves, and so bring away the germs of disease in the clothes and spread them broadcast. Or else they think, ' Well all children ...

WOMAN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

WOMAN'S WORK. Darning little stockings, For the restless little feet ; Washing little faces, To keep them clean and sweet ; Hearing Bible lessons ; Teaching catechism ; Praying for salvation From heresy and schism Woman's work Sewing on the buttons ; Overseeing rations ; Soothing with a kind word Other's lamentations ; Guiding clumsy Bridgets And coaxing sullen cooks ; Entertaining company, And reading recent books Woman's work. Burying out of sight Her own uuhealing smarts ; Letting in the sunshine On other clouded hearts ; Binding up the wounded. And healing of the sick ; Bravely marching onward, Through dangers dark and thick Woman's work. Lastly cometh silence, A day of deep repose Her locks smoothly braided, Upon her breast a rose ; Lashes resting gently ' Upon the marble cheeks ; A look of blessed peace Upon the forehead meek. Pale hands softly folded, The kindly pulses still ; The lips know no smiling, The noble heart no thrill ; Her couch needs no smoothing, She craveth for ...

QUEENSLAND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

QUEENSLAND NOTES. THE exceptionally hot weather has made everything very quiet in Brisbane, including matters pertaining to woman's rights and woman's work. The Suffrage League is still in recess ; on re-assembling, some of the mem bers intend to make a movement to have a series of subjects connected with woman's interests started at their general meetings, and carried out somewhat after the manner of a debating society. The list of subjects for the session to be decided on by the committee, and competent members selected to take charge of them. This plan is now being carried out by the Woman's Liberal Association in England with very good results. THE secretary of the Woman's Union in Brisbane has obstacles to overcome for some of the girls are terribly indifferent to the object of the Union, though pleased enough to gather together for social purposes. A noble exception must be made to this statement in regard to the bootmakers. These girls, num bering one hundred, formed their ow...

Good Baking Powder will not injure the most delicate constitution, but proves in many cases highly beneficial. Cheap inferior Baking Powders should be avoided, as they cause indigestion, heartburn, head ache, &c, &c.

THE POULTEY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

THE POULTEY YARD. FEEDING FOR FATTENING.-Fowls cannot oe made to fatten when only partly matured, a few breeds excepted, for they need most of their food for growth, like spare youths, who eat voraciously and grow prodigiously, while remaining awkward and long. This is no reason why chickens in tended for the table should not be generously fed, for the more they eat, the greater the quantity of their flesh, of course ; the quality is also much better. Adult fowls can be fattened upon grain of various sorts, fed for a change. But as variety not only stimulates appetite, but aids digestion, a very little animal food of extra nice quality, aa nice beefs liver, or other butcher's meat, should be added daily, and fresh vegetables also. But on no account give much of these last, for not only is grain cheaper and productive of the best quality of flesh, but much meat is too exciting, and vegetables fed freely keep the bowels too active, and therefore retard fattening.

WATER CRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1891

WATER CRESS. THE places most suitable for growing it are gently flowing rills, with a gravelly or chalky bottom, and with from one to four or five inches depth of water ; and if only muddy bot tomed rills are available, the mud should be removed from them and gravel substituted. The plants are propagated by division of the root, and require to be cleaned, lifted and replanted twice a year. The plants should be set in rows, commencing as near as possible to the sources of the stream ; and the rows should be about eighteen inches asunder in shallow rills. In every process of cleaning and renewal, all weeds, mud and rub bish should be cleared away; and in the accompany ing process of replanting, all the youngest and best rooted cresses should be selected for use, and each returned into the stream and retained in its proper place with a stone; and during winter, crops in even the shallowest streams should be so managed in the cutting as to impede the current to a sufficient decree to ma...

Curious Plants. THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE FLOWER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 March 1891

Curious Plants. THE KED, WHITE AND BLUE FLOWER. A wonderful flower has been discovered in 'the Isthmus of Tehauntepec. Its chief pecu liarity is the habit of changing its colours during the day.

Reform in the Kitchen. IN response to almost daily inquiries for a simple tost to determine the wholesomeness of water without going to the expense and trouble of an analysis, the State Board of Health furnishes the following, which is a simple and effective test and ought to be famil iar to every physician and head of a family. Into a ground glass-stoppered, perfectly clean bottle put five ounces of the wat or to be tested. To the water add ten grains of pure granulated white sugar. Cork tight and set in a window exposed to light, but not to direct range of the sun. Do not disturb the bottle and keep the temperature as near 70 degrees as possible. If the water contains organic matter, within forty-eight hours an abundance of whit ish sp?cks will be seen tloating about, and the more organic matter tho more specks.

Soil for Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 March 1891

Soil for Thoughts. DK. Holmes says : -^Our thoughts are plants that never flourish in inhospitable soils or chilling atmospheres. They are all started under glass, so to speak ; that is, cherished and fostered in our own sunny consciousness. They must expect some rough treatment when we lift the sash from the frame, and let the outside elements in upon them. They can hear the r.iiu and the breezes, and be all the better for them ; but perpetual contradiction is as a pelting hailstorm, which spoils the growth aud tends to kill them out altogether.

Thank the Children. JÎ[HEY run on our errands, upstairs for our books or slippers, our thimbles, our new magazines ; downstairs to tell the servants this thing or that ; over the way to carry our messages , to the post office with our letters and parcels. They leave their play or their work a dozen times in a morning, to do something to oblige us who are grown-up, bigger, stronger, and apt to bo less absorbingly occupied than they. No game of politics, or business in later life will ever be so important to the man as ball and top to the little lad ; and no future enjoy ment of the little girl will ever be greater in degree and in kind, than her present interest in her dolls and her play-house ; yet Johnnie and Jennie fly at our bidding, arresting them selves in mid-career of the pla}" which is their 2>resent work, and alas ! half the time we quite overlook our own obligation to be grateful. We do not say "I thank you !" And be cause we do not say it, we make it difficult for our ...
