EDUCATION AND MATERNITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
EDÍIC/ITON WV MATERNITY. IwSpECESSITY is said to be the mother M1P»3 °* *nvent'on> ar,d verily this would (S^lrêh) seem to be indeed true. Woman so long and persistently trained to believe that she was not man's equal in intellect ; so long and persistently taught to think that there were fields of learning she could never hope to successfully enter and explore, has fer the past decade been proving beyond a peradventure that she not only can, but does thoroughly master some of the difficult problems, thought for many generations to be capable of solution by man only. Now, in view of these facts, one reason after another has been brought to bear upon the subject. She has been told that she was unsexing herself; that she was meant for a different sphere ;that her health would not be found equal to the strain, and so we might go on enumerating ad infinitum, the many and various objections that have been urged against her advancement, until it would seem that there could be no more r...
BANKING FOR LITTLE FOLKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 January 1892
fKNOW two young married people who instituted the practice of reserving all the three penny pieces that each received in making change as the special property of the little boy that had come to them. A money box always stood upon the mantel, and its cover came off religiously after every mercantile transaction that left a three penny piece in the pocket of either parent ; and one would be surprised to see how fast that little box filled up. In it was placed any piece of money that grandpapa or grandmarna bestowed upon the small bit of a man. Whenever the contents amounted to a pound this sum was placed in a savings bank to gather interest as the ball increased in size. And such a ball does increase faster than one would think-in this case a the rate of about five pounds a year. The interest, and the various principals, will make quite a little fortune when the boy is a young man and ready to begin life for him self, either to start him in business, or to help him through college, wh...

THE CARE OF CANARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
THE CARE OF CANARIES. IN the care of canaries in the home, cleanl mess even out-ranks godliness. Given that, with proper food and reasonable freedom from bad air, your bird will be long in the land, and his song a delight to you eleven months in the year. Do not expect a canary to sing while moulting. The growth of his fine new winter coat requires all the sur plus vitality of his small body. Feed him liberally with some good prepared bird-food, keep him clean and quiet, and nature will do the rest. For steady feeding give mixed seed, two parts rape to one of canary. Wive a little fresh lettuce every day, a bit of apple three times a week. Wash the cage floor, bath, and so on, every morning. Fut in fresh gravel three times a week. Use the regular bird-gravel if you can . If not, clean, sharp river gravel, almost as fine aa sand will do. Once a week give a feed of hard-boiled egg taking care to remove it qefore it becomes stale. In place of it you may with advantage, sometimes give b...
HUMOROUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
HUMOROUS. The following written definition of the word bachelor was handed in by a tifth-grade boy : "a bachelor is a man who has no wife, nor wants no wife, nor can't get no wife." A very old lady on her death-bed, in a penitential mood, said : "I have been a great sinner more than eighty years, and didn't know it. " An old darky woman who had lived with her a long time, exclaimed : "Laws ! I knowed it all the time." * # * * A bright eight-year old was sawing away at a fiddle and someone asked him : ' 'What are you playing ?'' He answered, "I am playing classic music." To the fur ther question. "What sort of music is classic m»sic" ? he replied : "That what aint got any tune to it." # # # # "Ma, said Tommy, "I know what's good for a cold in the head ?" "Yes, my dear, what ?" "Why, that stuff in the little bottle that you smell to keep you awake in ohurch."

GROWING OLD. How Long can we Defer Old Age. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
-xr GROWING OLD. H@w I*osg caa w© Defer OM Ag©. CHE planets nearest the sun move in the shortest orbits. Every year, as we ap proach life's sunset, seems to accomplish its revolution with frightfully increasing rapidity. Even if we could ignore our individual birth day, we cannot shut out the holiday seasons and recurring festivals, which tell off the passing months with unmistakable distinctness. How shall we regard this period toward which we are all hastening ? Shall we live in mortal dread of its shadows, its infirmities and its loneliness ? Would it not be wiser to con template it from the standpoint of middle life, which is the youth of old age, and prepare for its approach in such a way as to neutralize its severity and defer as long as possible its weakness and its isolation ? Physical old age is characterized by an accumulation of tissue building materials. Hence we find concretions of bony elements forming around the joints, on the valves of the heart, and an increase of b...

FARM NOTES. Developing a Good Milker. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
-J Developing a Good Milker. IN rearing heifers much depends on the care and management given them by the farmer as to their future usefulness. With proper care he can make a heifer develop into a valua ble cow, while carelessness in this respect may make her of little value either to keep or for sale. In the management of young cows whatever will contribute to a large flow of milk tends to develop udder and blood vessels connected with it, milk veins included. Feed ing a young cow well for some time previous to her dropping her first calf (suspending the high feed just before calving for fear of in flammation of the udder) and having her rapidly and thoroughly milked three times a day after the birth of the calf, resuming the high feed as soon as all tendency to hardening and inflaming of the udder is past, will tend to make her a good milker. Apart from plenty of good food, nothing tends so much to increased quantity of milk as rapid and clean milking. If any teat is naturally dis...

ALWAYS REASONS FOR SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
ALWAYS REASONS FOR SUCCESS. If a Japanese artist is to paint a flower, he does not think of getting a specimen and sitting down in cold blood to paint it, as our flower artists do, but goes to the country just when the flower ia putting forth its leaves in spring. He establishes his residence near the plant ; he sees it put forth its flower stem and its bud, and watches the opening of the flower. His vigil does not end even with the falling of the flower's leaf ; he watches it in its decline as well as in its growth, and leaves it only .when it has strewn its seeds upon the ground. Then, and only then, does he consider himself competent to paint it.
CHRYSANTHEMUMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
-»vv THE culture of Chrysanthemums is very simple. The main point to be considered is that the plants from the time they are rooted until they flower should not suffer any check, but be kept in continuous growth. In pro pagating, only strong shoots should be selected for cut tings, and as soon as rooted, potted in two or three inch pots. After they have become established in such pots they should be either repotted into larger ones, planted in shallow boxeB, or planted out of doors when the weather permits. A well drained corner in the (carden should be selected, and in the winter a slight covering of straw or other light material given after the plants are cut down. Whether grown in the greenhouse, frame, or out of doon, Chrysanthemums should always hare the full benefit of sun, light and air, three conditions necessary for their successful culture ; and by attending to their wants in the way of watering and keeping clean of insects, they will repay in their flowering season for wh...
