HELPFUL BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

Ii J^LJPJTXJJ-, BOTTS. ÎMÎE03T boys have a proper and wholesome i/Sêi contempt for one of their number who is A "Miss Nancyish,'' or effeminate in his ^/ tendencies. It is well enough to ridicule ' this weakness out of boy-, if it can be done. But there is a difference between an effemin ate boy. and one who sometimes does the work of girls and women. One nf the manliest boys I ever knew washed and wiped the dishes for his mother very frequently and he always did the scrub bing and the sweeping. He could even make bread and do some kinds of cooking if it was necessary for him to do so. He was as "handy" with th.- needle and thread as many girls of the same age. He always looked after his own buttons, and I don't know but he could have put on a patch. His mother was a delicate, sickly woman. He had no sisters, and they could not afford to keep servants. He would not allow his mother to exhaust her feeble strength, doing anything he could do for her. I call that manly. He did noi spen...

OLD WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

HERE is no contemptuous epithet in more common use among men than this :- 'An old woman !"-"A reg ular old woman !"' It is not a new simile invented by each man out of his practical experience of old women, it is an old phrase picked up by boys and men from one another, lt has come down from an earlier generation. It is indeed a phrase which summarises the past history of womankind. It is not alone because the poor creature is "old," but also because she is a "woman", that her name serves as a derisive epithet, along with names of other types used in contumely, like "goose'' and "donkey''. There is no need to search books for evidence, and there is no room for doubt, because the way men thought of women is confessed in this phrase. It is clear that whenever the loss of youth destroyed woman's attractiveness to men, no attempt was made to hide the prevailing belief in the littleness, triviality, and inferiority of women. That belief is diminishing now ; for within the last thirty yea...

Novelties. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

CÄI llotieltits. C --<..<*~, Now I would like to introduce a very handsome cushion to.your notice. First you must get the cushion. This, if you live in the country and are smart, you can make of the down of your own geese, and a piece of heavy linen or cotton. But if time is more to you than money, you can get the cushion ready made. In the latter case, all you will have to do, will be to cover it. Tn o-der to do this, get enough old gold plush to cover one side ; for the other, the same quantity of cream coloured material that combines well with the plush say some kind of worsted sturt. In the centre of the cream coloured material, embroider with gold thread, in outline stitch, rather large flowers, and from the centre to the sides there may be lines more like rays of the gold thread. The corners of the cushion are not square but pressed in and finished by large buttons covered with the plush. These buttons are at least two inches in diameter and firmly attach...

WEAK-KNEED BRIDGEROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

.# WE^K-KjXEED BRIDEdl^öBMS. .> . ,X|.-I^INISTEKS declare that in nine cases °ut °f ten brides are much more * self-possessed than are bridegrooms when the marriage ceremony is being perfor med. A shy, modest-looking little creature, robed in white, will stand perfectly erect, looking the minister calmly and squarely in the eye, without for an instant losing her self-poise, while the big, hlunt six-footer of a bridegroom by her side is pale and nervous and trembling. His fingers are likely to twitch nervously, and ho may even hitch at his trouser legs or twist a corner of his coat. I was once "best man" to a stalwart, middle aged bridegroom, noted for his courage and feats of daring, and when the time came for us to go downstairs to meet the bride and her attendants, he nearly had a fit, and he looked like a walking corpse all through the ceremony. I had to keep saying, "Brace up, old boy," and "Gome, come, }-ou've got to go down," to get him started, and at the door he was idiot...

SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

SWIMMING. J^VERY boy, and girl also should acquire this art. It was meant by the Creator that all i human beings should be able to swim, as I does nearly every animal that exists. Even a hen or a cat will swim if compelled to. "Women learn to swim quicker than men and float with more ease, the bones of the body being smaller than in a man. Wonderful tales are told of the endurance of swimmers in the water. Sandwich Islanders, or Kanackas, as these are called, kidnapped by ruthless seamen in the days of the whale fisheries, when brought on deck and released have been known to throw themselves into the water and swim to their island homes, estimated to be twenty miles distant. The art of swimming once acquired can never be forgotten, and a person can abstain for years and yet plunge fearlessly into the water, sure of being able to swim. Now, to learn to swim is not so easy a matter as one might suppose, and care and attention are needed to make one an expert. There is not one-tenth pa...

Omens in a Loaf of Bread. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

'UP Omens» im a Loaf of Bread. -'AA/V AMONG beliefs current with sailors is the notion that it is unlucky to turn a loaf upside down aiter helping one's self from it ; the idea being that for every loaf so turned a ship will be wrecked. It is also said that if a loaf parts in the hand while being cut it bodes dissension in the family-the separation of husband and wife. Again, it has been a widespread belief that the whereabouts of a drowned body may be ascertained by floating a loaf of bread down the stream, when it will stop over the spot where the body is. A curious account of a body thus discovered near Hull, appeared some years back. After diligent search had been made in the river for a child, to no purpose, a two-penny loaf, with a quantity of quicksilver in it, was set floating from the place where the child was supposed to have fallen in. It steered its way down the river about half a mile, when the body happening to lie on the contrary side of the river, the loaf suddenly t...

To Prevent a Piano from Drying Up. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 November 1891

To Prevent a Piano from Drying Up. A PIANO tuner who says that pianos fre quently deteriorate because they are allowed to become too dry, prescribes this remedy : "Keep a growing plant in the room, and so long as your plant thrives your piano ought to, or else there's something wrong with it. Just try it, and see how much more water you will have to put in the flower pot in the room where your piano is than you use in any other room. Some people keep a huge vase or urn with a sopping wet sponge in it, near or under the piano, and keep it moistened just as a cigar dealer keeps his stock. They keep this up all the time the fires are on.''
