Good Manners. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 6 April 1891
Good Manners. GOOD manners lose half their charm by being delayed in their effect. If, for instance, you have a birthday, and a neighbour or a friend sends you flowers or bon-bons, a new book or an etching, or manages some pleasant treat in your interest, always write your note of thanks before the sun goes down. There is a special grace in a promptly written letter of courtesy ; a perfume, so to speak which the laggard loses, and which is not present in a tardy note, apparently the result of a prick of conscience, or an afterthought. Indeed, so far as correspondence is concer ned,- and correspondence enters very largely into our complex modern life,-it is a good rule invariably to answer one's letters, fully and clearly, as soon after their reception as practicable ; and whenever the letters convey invitations, or have in any degree a flavour of compliments, by all means let the reply be re sponsive to the dominant key; not effusive nor patronising, but while avoiding this ex treme...

Blacking Stoves. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
Blacking Stoves. EVEEÏ good housekeeper dislikes to see a grimy stove, yet often dreads equally the grimy hand acquired in the process of blacking. A pair of thick gloves is, of course, a necessary part of the outfit of any woman who does kitchen work and yet desires, as she should, to keep her hands dainty. As a rule, far too much black lead is used on the stoves. A cake nf black lead ought to last six months for blacking one stove. If more black lead is used, it will not be rubbed in to the surface of the stove as it should be, but remain as a fine dust, to be afterward blown about the kitchen and cause a generally grimy appearance, so olten seen in uncared-for kitchens. A fresh coat of black should not be applied often er than once a month, when the flues should also Le cleaned out and the interior of the stove thor oughly brushed out. Before putting on new black lead, the old black lead should be washed off. The new coat must now be applied and the stove thoroughly polished. The...
Things to Think of. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
Things to Think of. WE should more often send our shut-in friends, or interested relatives, or neighbours of previous years, papers and journals contain ing matter in which we know they have keen interest or that would give them cheer and gratefully received instruction, if it were not for the bother of getting the same ready to mail. The paper must be rolled and wrapped before it can be addressed, and it does require time to look for string and wrapper paper, and the gum bottle that, at our house, at least, is always empty or not to be found. This is a better wa}', and, by adopting it, it is a very quick and easy matter to wrap for the mail any pamphlet or newspaper. Provide yourself with a quantity of cheap envelopes. Clip the ends and it's but a moment's work to roD and seal it about the folded paper that otherwise might lie about for weeks, if ever it was mailed, while you waited for the time necessary to hunt wrapping twine and paper and that dried-up, flighty gum bottle. And a...

QUEENSLAND ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
"3¡2$ QUEENSLAND ITEMS. '1 THE Early Closing Association had a moonlight out W ing reeently on board the S.S. Natone. The weather was showery. Nevertheless the members and their friends rolled up to the number of 400, so that the proceeds of the outing made a welcome addition to the funds of the Association. They intend to hive another steamer pic nic shortly. THE Queensland Woman's Suffrage League is in a moribund condition, several of the most active members of the League having resigned. It is possible that a new society having the same object may be formed, but nothing is arranged at present. Meanwhile, in many directions women are opening out new fields of work for themselves, and the evidence given at the University Commission now sitting in Brisbane, is wholly and en tirely in favour of women students beiiig admitted to the University on precisely the same conditions as men. THE Railway Commissioners have made an innovation in favour of women. At one of the new stations close...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
New Zealand. Miss LARNACH, Dunedin, is making considerable fame as a violinist and Miss Frances Chew of Auckland has been admitted as a violin scholar to the Royal College of Music, London. ONE would have thought a laundry at any rate would be sure to belong to a woman but the proprietor of the Kapai laundry, Mount Albert, Auckland, is a man. Women, surely need have no hesitation in taking up any calling, for which they feel qualified, when men have no hesitation in becoming laundry-men, dressmakers, and distributors of women's clothing and baby-linen. WOMEN have dune well in the University examinations of December. Of the ten junior scholarships, five were gained by girls and a number passed the scholarship exams, with credit. Of forty-seven Wellington candidates who passed the matriculation exams, twenty were ladies. In the teachers' exam', seventeen women and five men passed for class E. In the experimental science exams., Miss Alice M. Baron, Otago, won the second prize. PROFESS...
Neglected Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
Neglected Teeth. Too much stress cannot be laid upon the ne cessity of taking care of the testh in childhood. The milk teeth prepare the foundation for the permanent teeth. If they decay too early, before it is proper time for th 3 permanent teeth to mature, there is no proper prepiration of the jaw for these final teeth. As soon as the slightest decay makes its appearance in a child's teeth, no matter how young it is, it should be taken to a dentist and a filling of cement to arrest the decay should be put in the tooth. In this way, if the teeth are watched they will remain in the jaw till the roots are entirely absorbed, and they can be literally taken out with the fingers without pain, and with hardly any bleeding, The permanent teeth in such a case will come in sound and firm. Another reason for keeping the teeth filled is to protect the child from dangerous diseases that are known to be contracted from this cause. It has beeu proved that diptheritic sore throats of tha most dan...
NOVELTIES AND FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
OVELTIES AND f ASHIONS. ir "1" ?.. ?? MUFFS will be considerably larger than those of last winter. A MIRROR two feet square and of Florentine design is framed in silver, and has heads of cupids and a flight of birds on its upper and lower parts. A WHITE flannel blouse is worn as the top to a skirt of blue or pink of the same fabric, the skirt having on its hem a band of the coloured material. THE cuffs of corning dresses will be very deep, and often pointed on the outsi de so as to show this effect on the seam iu the middle of the sleeve. POCKETBOOKS and purses of lizard and croco dile are among those shown in our stores and have locks and corners in sterling silver. Others are in the finest Russia leather. THE newest style of skirt is sloped, and has a great deal of the fullness which it would otherwise display diminished by a sloped seam which occurs in the exact middle of the back. A NOVEL and pretty pincushion-and who will not be glad to hear of a really novel one ? is in the fo...
Sawdust without Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 May 1891
Sawdust without Butter. A CELEBRATED jurist when consulted by an anxious father concerning his son's qualifi cations for the bar, asked quietly : "Can your son eat sawdust without butter ?" It is pluck, it is bull-dog tenacity of purpose, it is a certain stubbornness of perseverance that wins the battles of life wherever they may be fought, lt is this power to eat sawdust without butter that brings success. It is this nameless quality that has enabled many a student to wait at table at the summer hotels ; that makes it possible for the needy profes sional man to trim with the scissors the frayed edges of collar and wristband, to mend a worn dress suit with porous plasters, and in this patched condition appear on social occasions whenever advancement requires the sacrifice. A diet of bread and milk (or its equivalent, ) among strangers in a foreign country, has no terrors for the true-hearted art-student, even when third-class travel and thread-bare gar ments are added to the list of...
