AMATEUR GARDENING. Window Gardens. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

^MATEUR^ jjARDENING« Window Gardens. The outside appearance of the house may be made attractive by placing just below the window ledge a wooden box, the width of the window, and about twelve inches deep. This is painted red, and supported Dy strong wooden braces, and is lined throughout with zinc. The potted house-plants may be transferred to these boxes, or seeds may be sown in them next month, and newspapers or other protection placed over them on cold days. Drooping vines are exceedingly attractive in these hanging gardens, which, through the sum mer, are pleasing bits of colour and fragrance, close beside those who can sit at the open window with books or work, and more than repay the care bestowed upon them. The soil must bo rich and sandy, and watered thoroughly after the sun goes down.

SWEET ODOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

..^f SWEET ODOURS, Wk .e4.C.L..kS' How many ladies know that the sweet .odours with which they love to surround themselves are really stimulating and refresh ing-lavender and lemon that our grand mothers folded away in chests of linen, roses and violets that breathe in gentle fragrance from every fold and frill of sweet woman's % habiliments to day, even the homely scents of sage and benzine. Sweet odours, like fresh flowers, fade swiftly when brought in proxim ity with a person who, from disease or care lessness, emits any poisonous vapours. So the next time you meet a lady with that faint, intoxicating fragrance lingering in her gar ments you may know for a certainty that the cleanliness that is next to godliness is the basis and beginning of the fragrance that delights you and renders her presence agreeable.

REGGIE'S RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

'T''*-wHEN humanity forms in small clusters in that wild, rugged, desolate, and remote county of Yancowinna, life is curious. It will be found as picturesque and splen. did as bonnie Scotland's Highland glens, or J the Sieben Gebirge and Drachenfels, thc admira tion of the Rhine. Alternate falls and still reaches now the river crashes among huge granite rocks with a roar that beats "Lodore," anon it glides silently round the base of a thickly-wooded hill ; everywhere a tributary Creek, everywhere the mountain sides scored and seamed by gully and gorge, the present haunt of snakes innumer able, iguanas, and every wild thing escaping from advan cing civilization and the presence of man. Here in this county may be found vast areas of magnificent rich , land, giant gum in profusion, and soil now densely cov Wtd with scrub, capable of every cultivated plant. Inaccessible as it is, a few Pioneers have found their way and some of its mineral treasures are being^brought to the light of day....

HOW TO MAKE HOMES HAPPY i This is a question that requires some thought and consideration. Homes must be made as attractive as possible, and the peculiar temperament and desires of each individual must be studied, and what is good (do all in your power to encourage) little wants can now be so Take for instance the Microscope. What a large field of s afforded to old and young by these instruments. Just easily and cheaply supplied, amusement and instruction imagine : One little insect can be seen by the Miscroscope of which 27,000,000 would only equal a mite. Mould is a for est of beautiful trees, with bran ches, leaves and fruit. Each leaf has a colony of insects grazing upon it like cows in a meadow. The surface of our bodies is cov ered with scales, like fishes ; a single grain of sand would cover 150 of these scales, yet one scale covers 500 pores through which the s«v8»t forces itself like water through a sieve.

OUR NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

DON'T SAY "DON'T." THERE is one little word that baby need never hear if he has a wise mamma, and that little word is "don't." Some mothers can hardly be made to believe it, but it has been proved over and over again. It might seem a dangerous experiment to give a two-year-old child the freedom of the whole house without . placing any restrictions upon him, yet it is an easy matter if begun early and done wisely. When baby toddles to the low book shelves and begins to pull book after book out of the lower rows, a call from mother's sweet voice : "Come, darling, mother has something for you to do !" will arouse his interest, and the books are left lying on the floor, while he goes to help mamma. He is given a book to put on the lowest shelf of the case and if he hesitates, mamma goes with him, and lo ! when they arrive at the case they find many more deposi ted on the floor. Without a word of surprise mamma says, "Oh, here are some more pretty books for baby to put away ; see, mamma ...

MAKING ROCKWORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

?HI J* AKING RoCKWORK. fr* WHEN constructing a rockery, don't form a plan of what your rockery is to look like. You need no plan. The principal need is to get some one to procure some rough scraggy stones for you, the rougher and more lichen-covered the better. Direct that the stones be unloaded in the place where your rockery is to be. The best place for it is in some retired corner, where there is con siderable shade. Nothing is more out of place than an eruption of rocks on a well-kept lawn. After the rocks are unloaded, don't try to ar range them Let your rockery be built in just that unconscious fashion, if you want it to be a success. Any attempt to re arrange the stones will spoil it. The effect should be one of careless natural arrangement, and the dumping down of those stones merely wtth the view than that of getting the unloaded, will produce the'nearest resemblance ) nature's way of doing such things. Procure earth,-from the country, if possible -and put over and among th...

SHELVES FOR BRIC-A-BRAC. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

SHELVES FOR BKIC-A-BRAC. A parlor can be brightened by placing wooden shelveo, painted to match your woodwork, or stained in cherry, over the doors and windows, and grouping scarlet, yellow, or gilded fans upon she walls, and placing pretty bric-a-brac and vases in positions where they will be brought into re. lief by the bright, cheerfull-looking background. This will in a measure relieve the dark wall paper. POLISHING FURNITURE. First put a coat of linseed oil, which will sink into the pores of the wood and show the grain, unless it is made of pine, which will not absorb it reodily, and which will need a coat of stain,-either oak or cherry. After the oil or stain has sunk into the wood, apply a coat of shellac. A discoloured rattan chair can be made to look nice by painting a pretty golden brown, and re-covering the cushions with old gold plush.

A WIFE'S EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

fi ^IFE'S ^XPEHIENCE, A WIFE who has been married twenty years, and Las not found content in the "holy estate," makes this complaint and confession for the benefit of her sisters : "I married because it was my only way of getting a living recognised as respectable by the society in which I lived, although I am glad to see of late years a complete revolution in the opinion of society with regard to a woman earning her own living. I had wished to go into business, but no capital was forthcoming. I had ambition to be learned, and distinguish myself as a writer, but the idea was soon snuffed out. I would fain have been a nurse, a teacher, a lady help, anything to gain both experience and money; but difficulties were insuperable. I wanted some work in life ; I soon got it. I married tho least objectionable of the sherry-drinking, cigar-smoking bachelors who came to my mother's dances, and I have faithfully tended him, nursed him, and mended for him for twenty long years.

HOME-MADE FURNITURE. DRESSING TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1891

OME-MADE J^U RN ITU RE. DRESSING TABLE. You can make a handsome dressing table out of a deal case by tacking a flounce of white cam bric around it, and covering the inside also with cambric, the open part of the box to be placed towards the room, and used as a receptacle for boots, shoes, and slippers. The side which is to serve as a table will need a layer of cotton batting under a smooth cover of the cambric. A double flounce of figured white muslin edged with lace can be lightly tacked to the table for a drapery, that it may be readily removed, A cover of the muslin lined with calico, and edged with lace* should be made just large enough to cover the top of the table. Take any mirror-the larger the better-paint the érame white ; if you have artistic skill, decorate the mirror itself with wild roses, and drape your muslin edged with lace about it in any pretty way that may suggest itself to your fancy. This table is pretty for a girl's room.

"Don'ts" for Visitors to the Sickroom. Don't sit by the side of the patient, for then she can't look at you without straining her neck. Don't sit where the patient must change her position to look at. you. Don't, if there is already another person in the roo», sit so that the patient will have to be con stantly turning to look fco m one to the other. Don't rock your chair incessantly. Don't play with anything in your hands, or anything affixed to the furniture. Don't talk about sickness, or other disagreeable subjects. Don't let the bureau knobs fall heavily, or bang the doors.

Don't stay so long as to tire the patient.

As the move ment is almost in it's infancy in ihe colonies we hail with thankful pleasure the additional leverage which is to raise woman to her just and proper position in the »tate. The June number of the Band oj Mn cy Advocate con tains the usual reports of branch "Bands" and a great number of interesting stories of animal intelligence, and other topics in harmony with the objects of the paper. No child could fail to be interested in this ma¿;a/.ine, and the objects of the editor, namely, to inculcate mercy and gentleness in children, must of necessity, be advanced by the well-selected contents of the Advoco (t.
