The first of these is that they pret vent both parties from clear argument, I because you. can't argue when you are angry,as angerolouds your reasoning facul ties for the time ; and they make both sides...

THE OLD AND THE NEW. I ------_ 1· [BY EVELINI, BE4RC.] It was a cold wet night, the rain fall ing heavily and almost incessantly. The few pedestrians abroad hurried to their homes, anxious for their tea and other comforts. Within the dining room of one of the prettiest villas in a suburb of Adelaide a scene of bright ness and comfort met the eye. A bright fire burned in the grate, on one side of which was seated a lady busily sewing, and evidently the mother of the children in the room, and on the other a young girl about 16, coiled up in her father's armchair reading. A little boy of 2 years old played about on the hearth rug, another boy of 12 was having a game of hide-and-seek. with his other sister, a merry little maiden of 6, to the imminent danger of the overhanging table-cloth, " I wonder why papa is so late," said i the young girl, layng her book down with a yawn, " I am sinply dying for my dinner," The mother glanced at the clock. i Yes, it is late; 7 o'clock.

JULIANA BRYCE'S OPINIONS ON WOMAN'S FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 17 August 1894
JULIANA BRYOE'S OPINIONS ON WOMAN'S FRANCHISE. Every ?one is talking election, so .much so that. one almost expects to hear even those unclassified specimens of humanity that lounge about tote shops, spitting on the pavements, and getting in the way of every second woman passing by-one almost expects to hear even these wondering who will come in first on polling day, or to see the newsboys tossing pennies-heads, the old hands; tails, the new. That the former have so far escaped the -)ntagion of public feeling and public interest is a wonderful fact, only explainable on the hypothesis that they have not yet reached the stage of hav ing ideas, and are therefore as yet in sensible to the power of brain-waves and thought transference. This wouldn't so much matter just now if they happen to be women. But they are not. They are fullfledged voters most of them, privileged citizens, en joying rights such as were given, in the golden days of Rome,. only to those who were found to be noble, o...
