How to Make Toffee at Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
3JP KNEW a girl of thirteen years who used to lay out SJ? most of her weekly pittance in sugar and butter, and make toffee that would melt in one's mouth. She did this rather than spend her money at the confection er's, for two reasons ; first, because she could make it just as she pleased ; and second, because she had more of it when she put in all the labor herself. She not only had as much toffee as her money could buy, but an additonal amount equivalent to the value of the labour she put into the making of the toffee. For these very identical reasons many other people, young and old, indulge in toffee-making at home. But it were a mistake to suppose that this is all that can be said inbehalf of toffee-making at home. Those who have not tried it know not how mnch fun can be got out of it. There is also the anticipation. And we confess, that in many cases, the anticipation is more enjoyable than the realization. For this reason, therefore, this article may be found full of useful ...
Some Uses of Hot Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
Sortie Uses of Hot Water. THE uses of hot water are many : For example, there is nothing that so promptly cuts short congestion of the lungs, sore throat, or rheumatism, as hot water when applied promptly and thoroughly. Headache almost always yields to the sim ultaneous application of hot water to the feet and back of the neck. A towel folded several times, and dipped in hot water, and quickly wrung out and applied over the toothache or neuralgia, will generally afford prompt relief. A strip of flannel, or napkin folded length ways, and dipped in hot water and wrung ont, and then applied round the neck of a child who has the croup, will sometimes bring relief in ten minutes. Hot water taken freely hali an hour before bed-time, is helpful in the case of constipation, while it has a most soothing effect upon the Btomach and bowels. A cup of hot water taken just after rising, before breakfast, has cured thousands of in digestion, and no simple remedy is more widely recommended by phys...
The Dread of Sea-Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
The Dread of Sea-Sickness. HUNDREDS of women-and men, too, for that matter-who intend going abroad this summer season, dread the possibility of being sea-sick. Every precaution ever thought of, printed or told, is borne in mind, and many women go on board ship with a quantity of so-called "remedies" enough to kill ten ordin malady is so little understood by the doctors as sea-sickness, and no matter what they may recommend to quiet the fears of intending voyagers, there is no such thing as a remedy. Is there any cause for uneasiness in this ? Not a particle. There is nothing in the world so productive of good results as sea-sickness. True, it is unpleasant, but so is any good med icine. If women would anticipate sea-sickness less, they would be more comfortable. A good dose of sea-sickness is the best Turkish bath imaginable. You may feel as if you are going to die, but depend upon it you will not. As a rule, two days is the limit, and then it is over, and never will you feel so wel...

Nine Rules for Bathers. Avoid bathing within two hours after a meal. Avoid bathing when exhausted by fatigue or from any other cause. Avoid bathing when the body is cooling after perspiration.

Discovered through a Child. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
Discovered through a Child. WHEN Sir Humphry Davy was a boy about' sixteen, a little girl came to him in great excitement. "Humphry, do tell me why these two pieces of cane make a tiny spark of light when I rub them together." Humphry was a studious boy, who spent hours in think ing out scientific problems. He patted the child's curly head and said, "I do not know, dear. Let us see if they really do make a light, and then we will try to find out why." Humphry soon found that the little girl was right : the pieces of cane, if rubbed together quickly, did give a tiny light. Then he set to work to find out the reason, and after some time, thanks to the observing powers of his little friend, and his own kindness to her in not impatiently telling her not to "worry,1' as so many might have done, Humphry Davy made the first of his interesting discoveries. Every reed, cane, and grass has an outer skin of flinty stuff, which protects the inside from insects, and also helps the frail-looking ...

A Birthday Wish. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
A Birthday Wish. BY LOUISA LAWSON. Oh, could I as I lift this pen Mark out thy destiny, I would have thee happy now as when Nurs'd at thy mother's knee. I would have thee cherish'd, free from harm On this eventful morn, Bless'd and content, with brow as calm As the hour that thou wer't born. On a peaceful pillow thou wouldst sleep, Thy dreams should pleasant be ; Would God, I had the power to keep Thy heart from sorrow free. The flowers of hope thy path would strew, To walk in manly pride ; All hearts around thee firm and true, Great good should thee betide. I've not the power, alas, dear friend To give thee all I say, But hope they'll please, the lines I send Thee, on thy natal day.
The Fairest Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
The Fairest Day. BY EDGAR FAWCETT. An old man mused, amid the twilight's haze, While he watched a fading fire alone, Which day of his long life's many days Could be named the fairest he had known. Then out of his memory voices broke, And all were of days that are past and dead ; He smiled at forgotten dreams they woke In the low, mellifluous words they said. Of the grand Swiss mountains' power and peace, Of the Orient's lazy and splendid spell, Of noons in Venice, of morns in Greece, Each day for its own sake pleaded well. But when all the magic murmurs died Where his chamber drowsed in the spent logs light "I was dim and cheerless," a new day sighed, "I was chill with blast, I was bleak with blight, "Yet I gave that first, warm, poignant thrill, When your first last love in your fond arms lay "Tis enough 1" cried the old man. "Bleak and chill, You of all my days were the fairest day !"
To a Bird. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
To a Bird. BY LOUISA LAWSON. I'm listening, father, to a sound I've often heard thee say, Did come to call thee to thy toil just at the dawn of day, It's sweet and thrilling melody is ringing in the air And tells me day is breaking with a promise bright and fair; I wonder if it is the same bright warbler of the sky That came to wake thee, father, in the busy days gone by, I bless it though it may not be, and also fate that led It hither to dispel a dream that filled my soul with dread; For thoughts of that real sieming dream still -fill my heart with pain, And echoes of a stricken scream come floating through my brain ; For thou I thought wert weary and had cast life's burden down, And henceforth, and forever, I was here to toil alone; But that sweet bird awoke me, and it's clear notes on me fell With calming re-assurance for it told me all was well ; I thank it now most fervently for singing o'er my head, But father, may it call in vain to wake me when thou'rt dead ; But oh! couti ...
POET'S PAGE. A Birthday Wish. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 February 1892
POET'S PAGE. - A Birthday Wish. BY LILIAN WHITING. What can I wish for thee, 0 friend of mine ! In all the bloom and beauty of the May ? Thou, whose fair life the poet's words portray, Wearing the white flower with its breath divine. Wealth, power and honor do I ask for thee; Yet not the wealth that's counted but in gold. The riches of right doing-purpose told In deeds that stamp thy life with majesty. Power-not to use but for thyself alone, But power to strengthen hands that else were weak, And power to bring high thought to them that seek, And lead from all that's known to the Unknown. The honor that must come from being true Unto the Heavenly Vision-which shall shine Ever upon your way-its light divine Transfiguring all old meanings into new. This do I ask for thee in these May days, That dawn with bloom and light and sweetness rife; Wearing the white flower of a blameless life, You footsteps set in His appointed ways.
South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
-- -*AJ South Australia. ON Feb. ist, the new Probate and Succession Act came into force, which contains a provision that when a man dies intestate his widow shall have five hundred pounds from the estate and then anything that is ove ithat shall be divided according to the general law of inherit ance, this means that the widow, after having received her five hundred shall still have a right to one-third of the remainder of the estate. The writer understands that a similar provision has recently become law in England. It is so just in itself, and of such advantage both to wid ows and widowers, for the widower has been given a similar advantage, that the women of N.S. Wales might well interview the Government and seek to secure a law on the same lines. THE new Education Act makes women eligible as members of the School Boards of Advice. THE Board of Management of the Childre n's Hospital North Adelaide, appointed a lady to the position of House Surgeon te that institution. The Board ...

Seasoning of Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
Seasoning of Food. "I THINK," said a lady who prides herself on her dainty dishes, "that it isn't very far from a downright insult to a good cook for a guest to sit down at a table and, without tasting of the food, to deluge every dish with salt and pepper. For my part, I don't know why a cook seasons things at all if they are not supposed to be of proper flavour when put on the table. I think that with a great many people this extravagant use of seasoning is the merest habit. I know of a middle-aged man who was always very bashful. It was only by the greatest amount of argument and persuasion that he could be induced to eat a meal in a friend's honse. His discomfort and embarrassment were very great, and took on a most curious form. The moment a remark was addressed to him, especially if it came at all suddenly, he would seize the pepper-box and begin patting it, scat tering the contents over his food. If someone addressed him again, almost immediately, in a confused, nervous sort ...
