CARE OF FLOWERS IN VASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
^ j^ARE OF ^LOWERS IN ^ASES. THERE may be some reality in the danger ex plained by a writer in the Tribune, who des cribed the but 1er at a large, country house, arranging the flowers with which a room is filled, renewing those in each receptacle with the greatest skill, but merely adding a little fresh water to that already polluted by the blossoms of the day before. "I know by experience,'' says a writer, how fetid and offen sive water becomes from decaying stems of plants, and I spoke to my friend on the sub ject, believing as I did that the standing water in so many open receptacles was positively unhealthy. "How often do you clean the vases completely, James ?" she inquired. "We wash everything once a week,, ma'am," "the rest of the time I only take out the faded ones and replace them with fresh." 'Just take out those," she directed, pointing to a big yel low bowl filled with purple irises. As he lifted the wet mass from the dish the odour was so sickening that it filled the wh...

HOW TO BE HAPPY IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
-^jc pew TO BE flippy IN ^PE CIW. ^ ,-*?-O.*-_-> fNE of the first factors in the happiness of the woman who must remain in the city during the summer, is to treat her household gods as if she were to leave them for awhile. Let her put away that part of her plenishing which accumulates moth and rust, and calls for tedious dustings. Then let her change about the pictures and furniture, remembering that the women who filled the insane asylums of New England, came from the families whose rocking chairs wore grooves in the same breadths of the same carpets for generations. Gently swaying drapery often proves to your senses that air is stirring when you believe it not. The sub stitution of light hangings in place of heavy portie res and curtains is to be commended on this score, if on no other. Taking one of the many hints Nature gives, let these draperies be leaf-green, the coolest most restful of colours. Linen covers cool the brilliant hues of the chairs and sofas. Scarfs, bows, bag...

ALBERT (aged eleven)-"Pa, give me sixpence '" Pa, (severely)-"Don't you think you are too old to beg for sixpence ?" Albert (reflecting)-"That's so. Pa, give me a halt crown." * * # * "Well," said father-in-law, after mother-in-law had returned from a visit to the young couple, "what sort of a fellow is John ? ' "I'm afraid he's not good for much," said mother-in-law. "He reminds me very much of you." LI TTLE Charley was severely stung by a bee one day, and after the pain was relieved, he went into the door yard, where he saw a bee on the clover, and called out to his motlier, "Oh, mamma, here he is now out in the yard eating grass "
THE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
THE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. CLEANLINESS, not only next to godliness, is part of coolness, and the woman who understands how to bathe and dress herself is the one who is going to be comfortable all day. If you can have a plunge bath, take it, letting the water be tepid and giving yourself a cold shower ; for just a little while this will make you warmer, but after you have sensibly dressed, you will be surprised to find how delightfully cool and pleasant your entire body is. Don't be afraid of the powder puff, using with it a fine infant powder, such as is sold in packages and is not expensive. Then arrange your hair, not in too much haste, for haste makes heat; and arrange it smoothly, so that annoying little curls and flying ten drils may not come about your face and neck. Do not, on any account, wear clothes in which there is much starch. Indeed, if you will, instruct your laundress to omit starch altogether from your summer frocks and underwear. A gingham, or cotton gown of a...
IF. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
IF. If any little word of mine May make a life the brighter, If any little song of mine May make a heart the lighter, God help me speak the little word And take my bit of singing And drop it in some lonely vale To set the echoes ringing I If any little love of mine May make a life the sweeter, If any little care of mine May make a friend's the fleeter If any lift of mine may ease The burden of another, God give me love, and care, and strengths To help my toiling brother !
WHERE IT CAN BE WORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
WHERE IT CAN BE WORN. WHILE the black lace cape looks its best over a black lace or black gown, it may yet be worn with a dress of any material provided that the bonnet is black lace and the parasol is in harmony with it. It is perfectly well adapted for the day-time, for driving ; and where an evening dress is to be worn and a slight protection is desired for the shoulders even in a room, it will be in good taste to assume a lace cape ; however, it is not advised for wear in the evening air, as the damp will make it grow stringy looking. With the same sad result in view, care must be taken in putting it away. It must not be hung up ; instead, it should recline in a box that is fully its length, and between back and front there should be laid enough soft paper to keep the one from the other. It does occupy a few minutes but unless this amount of time is devoted to it, your lace cape will, in a short time, be a sorry thing to look upon.
RACING THE TRAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
SVgKITH weary steps that were only sustained by the SJEKS light hearted bouyancy of her child, Mrs. Grant stood before a stall in Belmore Markets looking at some toys. The crowd of strollers of all descriptions jostled them as they went, and sometimes a rude fellow would elbow her from his way with a coarse laugh to the com panion he followed, but the patient widow, used to the jostling and brow-beating of the world, only assumed a shade of pity in her soft eyes for the ignorance that still bound the world in its ugly power. From year's end to year's end she had no comfort beyond daily drudgery, toiling to overpower the obstacles of fortune and if she could not attain the position in which her lamented hus band should have left her, she tried at least to win ,a comfortable home and an education for her child. God knows nature had never meant her for a drudge. And so, on from stall to stall she went, and again and again the coarse, individual and his companion passed close to her elb...
Christmas Lore. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
(Christmas Core. "PAPA" said little Harry. "Bridget says that in Ireland every donkey falls on its knees and brays three times on Christmas night. Is that true?" "It is one of the most prevalent superstitions, my son," answered Mr. Gray. In the south west of England there is a belief that the oxen all kneel on this night, and the Indians think that the* deer fall on their knees to the Great Spirit and look up. "Who first thought of a Christmas tree papa?" continued Harry. "The Germans, my boy. They are essen tially a home loving people, they make toys for the world and most of the fairy tales and legends originate with this prosaic and practical nation, who are in these various ways the benefactors of little children." Did they think of Santa Claus too ?" inquired Harry. "Santa Claus came from Holland," replied his father, and St. Nicholas from Patara, a city of Lycia in Asia Minor. His day was Decem ber 6, called "Little Christmas," and he was the patron Saint of little boys and gi...

ON SECLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
ON SECLUSION. Not in the dim ar l cloistered ce!i The soul can grow to purity. It is not always wise and wei! To court obscurity. The muuniaius icaf their lofty peaks That seem to touch the sky ; And not a cloud and not a storm Doth pass them by. Seek no: îeo'usion from the world, But teach the world to look, And gazing upward at thy thought, Yet read it like a book. The maimed limbs must lie in sling, Uncrippled do thou fight ; And when thou see'st a thing to dread, Go-put it right.
Eighty-seven Years of Age. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
(ttgbtn-scbcn í)cars of ¿Lgc. THE work of the benevolent Society is especially de serving of the attention of women inasmuch as by its aid, more than 300 widows and deserted wives, with more than twice as many children, are able to keep a home to gether. We all know how difficult life is to women with children to support, and we observe, with great pleasure, the widely extended and beneficial work the Society ac complishes. We print this month, the portraits of an aged widow and her daughter, who are able with the Society's help to live together in a little home. Mr. Maxted's account of their story is as follows : The aged widow represented in the picture is a person of much gentility, and her prim appearance and honest face commend her at once to the sympathy of all who meet her. She is 87 years of age, and is very feeble, though mentally she s particularly bright and compan ionable, and altogether most exemplary. The old lady had never had her photograph taken before, and was unde...

'SHIP BRAND' BAKING POWDER Good Baking Powder, unlike yeast, leaves the flour quite unchanged, there is, therefore, no danger from yeast spores, which may have escaped alive from insufficient baking, obtaining access to the stomach, causing pains and éructions.

POET'S PAGE. GOOD NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
->«*- POET'S PAGE. -'-^.vj-&lt; GOOD NIGHT. Good night, my love, I lay me down, The while the old clock of the town Rings out for me a deep good-night. Thou canst not hear the words I say, Not hear the tender prayer I pray, That thou may's' love me sundered wide As thou dost love rae by thy side ; And so to thee, my heart's delight, 1 say again love's last good-night. Good-night. I'm wondering how 'twill be When life is slipping far from me, When, drawn by Death's tranquility, The far-off, fadeless morn I see. Then wilt thou kiss the fading face, So dear to thee in earlier grace ? And say : ''No sot;! can take the'place The life-long love for thee hath won. "Good-night. A little further on I'll take thy hand, I'll kiss thine eyes, Lit by the new life's rapt surprise. The twin of soul, the truly wed, Can never part. Rest wifely head ! Dear heart be not disquieted « For fast I follow after thee, To find Love's last reality !" Ot shall I see but empty space When mine eyes, d...
THE CHILDREN DURING THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
THE CHILDREN DURING THE DAY. gVgcjE can do very little to make the children cool and ¡^§$5 comfortable in the hot city, but that little seems to lie in giving them as good a substitute as possible for the country. Near all our large towns there are parks and pleasure grounds, and to these the children should go very often ; but not in the usual picnic style, which sets the hour ot departure in the midst of the heat. Instead of this, rise very early, give the little ones a breakfast of summer fare-no greasy meats or made dishes-aud be ready by seven o'clock to take them to the park. Here the children romp and play, following the shade until eleven, when they can find comparative shelter in a tram on their way home, and the lunch can be eaten in the house. Afterwards the children are to be sent to the darkened chambers for the siesta. In either case the late afternoon brings a royal bath and fresh, dainty clothing.
