How to Treat Diphtheria. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
How to Treat Diphtheria. Mas. MCDONALD in Woman's News : At the first stage of the disease or at the middle, or even when life is almost despaired of, even when the ? doctor is attending, this remedy will not conflict with any prescription : Take two strong onions (or ten garlics which is better,) if you can obtain them, slice fine, place over the fire in a tin-plate, add three tablespoonsful of drippings from fried bacon, or lard will do, and a half-tables[joonful of black pepper ; simmer slowly five minutes, put the whole into a stocking leg, sew through in several places ; when cool enough to bear, place around the neck, up over the ears, to the top of the head and fasten snug. Then take a square piece of stiff paper, roll into shape of funnel about three inches long, one end open the size of a lead pencil or larger and the other end much smaller, put into this tube a half teaspoonful of dry sulphur; then open the child's mouth and place the small end in the mouth far as possible...
MEDICAL NOTES. Simple Method of Removing a Needle. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
EDICAL JIOTES, Simple Method of Removing a Needle. I THINK it may be of service to record a simple means by which I obtained tbe removal of a broken needle from the heel of a young girl, aged twelve, vrhom I saw lately wolking about on her toes to prevent her right heel, into which a needle bad been broken from touching the ground. The buried end could be felt, but any pressure led to its furthur entry. I directed her to wear a large thick corn plaster around the spot with a little wet cotton wool in the centre, and to tread freely ?on the heel. Within a week afterwards she suuneu mc mo m/>/v..~ --- ehe had easily withdrawn it. -Chas. Suele, M. D.
GARDENING FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
GARDENING EOR |[OMEN, - A WBITEX in a horticultural exchange has sor good things to say on this subject ; we prese the most striking features for the benefit of o readers. ''Women have wrought wonders in the cultu of rare flowers, and in spending many hours each day in the loving care and attention requir at their hands by these beautiful products of ni ure, they are well repaid by the exquisite flowe produced, while the time thus spent in wholeson exercise in pure air and healthy sunshine do more in adding years to their lives than tl learned care of the best physician. It is wonderful what a vast field'of knowled« opens out to the woman who studies the natui of the loveliest flowers she can grow, and taki an interest in the culture of the fruit upon tl home-lot, and even spends some time in findir out and raising, too, the most profitable and bei kinds of vegetables for the home table. She need not lose her interest iu the indot matters, but the garden will soon come to be source ...

Our New Zealand Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
Our New Zealand Letter. A HEALTHY interest ia being shown by the women of New Zealand in the efforts now being made to obtain for them the Electoral Franchise. It is encouraging to find how many young women both single and married are thinking upon the question. Petitions are being signed in various districts of New Zealand with the object of showing that the women do wish for the vote. In getting the signatures to one of these petitions it was noticed that for the fifty women who signed as soon as they understood the object of the paper only three re fused to do so, and of these, two would gladly sign but their husbands dislike the movement and they therefore declined. Before the House meets these petitions will be sent in to the representatives of thc electorates where they have been signed, and as the Premier, the Hon. Mr. Ballance, has distinctly expressed himself in favor of Woman Franchise, and many influential men, as Sir George Grey, Sir John Hall, Sir Julius Vogel, Sir Robe...
Womanhood Suffrage. THE WORK COMMENCED. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
Womanhood Suffrage. THE WORK COMMENCED. Hon. W. H. Suttor, and speeches were made by Miss Scott, Mrs. Wolstenholme, Mrs. Pottie Mrs. Montefiore Mrs. Lawson, Prof. McCallum, Alf. Allen, Esq, M.P., Dr. Ellis and Dr. Vandeleur Kelly. The meeting was very enthusiastic and the speeches of the women were considered very effective and successful in spite of the trepidation with which some of them approached the ordeal of public speech-making. Three of the speeches were published in the Daily Telegraph of May 16th and we congratulate ourselves so fair a hearing is already given to the subject by the press. The men, of course, spoke well, as they ought to do, having no shell of timidity to break and no popular disapproval to face. The meeting appointed a committee and decided to hold a public meeting in June, and most of those present en rolled themselves as members of the league. The committee have since been at work, and they hope to arrange for a public meeting about the middle of June, w...
Queensland Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
Queensland Notes. A GOOD deal of fresh organising has been done of late in the woman's section of the A.L.F. on the lines of making each trade form its own union, instead of sim ply belonging to the Woman's Union as was formerly the case. The bootmakers are the best organisers ; the tailoresses are falling in line slowly, but they seem afraid to be known to belong to a union as it might militate against their chances of employment. They have sub mitted without a murmur to the reduction of rates of pay on piece-work which has taken place within the last few weeks. The res son given for the reduction is "slack times." There is abundant evidence that "sweat ing," or the giving ol work to a middleman who makes his profit on his wcrkers' labours, is weU established in Queensland among the tailors, shirt and underclothing makers. Whether the evidence gained will be turned to advantage so that the State wiU intervene to protect the workers, remains to be seen. The hardest fight that women ...
The Woman's Suffrage League of South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
The Woman's Suffrage League of South Australia. THE annual meeting of the League was held in Adelaide on March loth. Miss Spence presided over a large attendance. Miss Spence said it was the first time she had attended a meeting of the League, but certainly it would not be the last. She thought that the labour ing classes in England, Australia, and, in fact, all over the world, were daily growing in knowledge, and the popularity of woman's suffrage was gaining headway. Mrs. DeCean read the annual report as follows : Dur ing the past year the committee have met monthly, excepting the summer recess, and have promoted meet ings in favour of woman's suffrage A large correspon dence has been carried on, petitions have been circulated and presented to Parliament. The League seeks to secure the suffrage for women for the Upper and Lower House, on exactly the same conditions on which they are granted to men. Whatever may be the opinions of individual members, the League as such seeks to obt...
HOW TO USE ONIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
j^OW TO JJ SE pNIONS BY CLARA S. BVABTB. THRBB is probably no vegetable raised that possesses so many medicinal qualities as the onion, and none is so grossly maligned or so unjustly criticised. True the odour is strong, penetrating and not very pleasant ; but often times our best friends have very ungainly forms or homely faces, f*r which we do not for an instant blame them, but, more often, thinking of the kind heart which actuates their deeds, we cease to think of or notice their personal defects. So when we realize that the much traduced onion will relieve pain or save a doctor's bill, we should not think so meanly of it. A few drops of the juice of a roasted onion will instantly relieve the ear-ache ; and if the sufferer be a child it almost invariably will fall into a refreshing slumber, from which it awakes free from pain. The quickest way to prepare the onion is to wrap it in heavy, wet paper and cover it with coals. In a short time it will be tender and juice can easily be ...
NOVELTIES AND FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
J^OVELTIES + AND 4- j^ASHIONS. fr Aw elegant foot-stool of plush is edged with lui and lias nail-work around its edge, the nails being in brass and of both large and small size. This stool is easily made of com mon pine covered with very heavy plush. IT is thought pretty to decorate the little paper hand-screens, ,which are set about on the walls as ornaments, with blackbirds, humming birds, artificial flowers, and the made butter flies which are sold for trimming bonnets. ANOTHEB. novel lamp screen is in the form of two fans of silk laid back to back and made of dark red surah. On the edge is marabout and white lace. There is a bow on each side and the globe and shade are almost concealed when this screen is slipped over the top of the lamp. A VERY pretty article of decoration ¡"is a "catch-all," being a basket lined with fsilk, and in a shape which becomes narrow at the base, and opens at the top like the cup of a lily. When decorated with chenille, plush, and bows of ribbon, k is...
PLAIN LIVING AND HIGH THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
^LAIN JIVING AND JÍIGH JHINKING. AMOHG th« things which we women have to be thankful for, stands the unhappy mar ried life. If the promise solemnly given, "to love and to cherish," were kept, then women would probably have settled down contentedly in their nests for another century or two, and never have evolved. "When we are gathering Sewers, and revel ling in pleasure, we never catch the solid fruit of toil and wisdom, and she who will pass life in soft seclusion and dependence on one man, must not complain if she. acquire neither wisdom nor strength. But it is not so, men have long ago wearied of their wives, though they hid it bravely in many cases, now they take no trouble to hide it. Another thing to be thanMW for, is, that plain living is fast becoming the rule, not the exception. Oar forefathers ate too much and drank too much, (especially the latter). No wonder we have weakly bodies and weaklier sonia when welook back on the habits of twenty years ago. These too are daily c...
THE MANNERLESS SEX. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
TPE Já?I]\S[ERIiEgg gE£ s2-'-^a^--** IN one of the American magazines a few months ago women were branded with a new title. They were massed together as "The mannerless sex." The writer of the article under that heading found many glar ing faults in the conduct of women in the streets, chiefly in the management of um brellas in relation to alien hats and eyes, and he said some hard things about women who oust men from seats in overcrowded public vehicles and cars ; also if we remem ber right, he did not omit the ancient grievance of hats in the theatre. He wrote with the bluntness commonly used when the faults of womankind receive public chastise ment ; still we do not mind the candour for we do not claim perfection and for our part we think it better to receive sharp criticism along with the candour and confidence ac corded to an equal, than to live as chief favourite in a harem and have one's life car peted by chivalry. We do not however abandon our right to use the same frankne...
WISE WORDS FROM SAMUEL R. WELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
WISE WORDS FROM SAMUEL R. WELLS. HE who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires and fears, is more than a king. Every man is a book ; those who know how, can read him. Apology is egotism turned inside out. Gen erally the first thing a man's companion knows of his shortcomings is from his apology. Cultivate the physical exclusively and you have an athlete or a savage, the moral only, and you hare an enthusiast or a maniac ; the intellectual only, and you have a diseased oddity-it may be a monster. It is only by training altogether physical, intellectual, social and spriritual-that the complete man can be found. By continually assuming a particular character we may in the end make it our own ; and the expression, at first put on at will, can not be so easily put off. The very effort to smile and look pleasant is one step toward overcoming our sad ness or ill-nature, and finally the smile and sunny look come naturally, The face is moulded by the thought ; and no persuasion-no...
Beyond Words. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
Beyond Words. Little maid in homespun gown Simple as the daisies. Loving lips and eyes of brown Let me sing your praises. Shall I call my love a flower Gathered to my bosom ? No ; they fade from hour to hour, And I want my blossom. Shall I call her precious pearl ? Set not jewels nigh her ! Only just a country girl, Yet not a king could buy her. Shall I call her angel blest, Whitest soul of woman ? Stay !-I think I like her best Laughing, weeping, human. Is she, then, a sparkling star, Sent to guide and cheer me ? Ah ! the skies are cold and far, And I like her near me. Not a name is there on earth Of a poet's giving Fit to tell one-half her worth, Real, true, and living. Rhymes and words of mystery Only would amaze her ; For her own sweet self is she, And all my deeds shall praise her.

A Good Creed. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 June 1891
A Good Creed. Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love aud tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving, cheering words while their ears can hear them, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them ; the things you mean to say when they are gone, say before they go. The flowers you mean to send to their coffins, send to brighten and sweeten their homes before they leave them. If my friends have alabaster boxes laid away, full of fragrant perfumes of sym pathy and affection, which they intend to break over my dead body, I would rather they would bring them out in my weary and troubled hours, and open them, that I may be refreshed and cheered by them while I need them. I would rather have a plain coffin without a flower, a funeral without a eulogy, than a life without the sweetness of love and sympathy. Let us learn to annoint our friends beforehand of their burial. Post-mortem kindness does not cheer the bur ...
