A GOOD COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
H C0jaPÍ£tí,XIOM. BY AUDIE .1. FAIÜiAi:, "í fT is the desire of every woman to possess a fine, slear, unblemished skin ; and naturally the care of the skin is one of tbe first considerations of the girl who cares for und proparly values her beauty ; but when the fair face is marred by blem ishes the difficulties are various, overcome only by patience and perseverance. Avoid the use of all cosmetics and advertised "skin bleaches" as you would poison, for they only defeat the end in view and cause dryness of the skin. Remember that the best beautifiers are plenty of exercise in the open air, the keep ing of the pores open by daily bathing, sufficient sleep, and a healthful diet. Do not be afraid of soap and water. Give your face a thorough bathing instead of a simple wiping, using for the purpose pure white Castile soap and warm water, as warm water is more effectual in removing the dirt, than is cold. There is nothing to be more highly recom mended than giving the face, daily a good ...
Keep Pure-Bred Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
Keep Pure-Bred Fowls. ASIDE from the great pleasure which it affords, it pays better to keep and to feed pure fowls than to breed and feed a lot of mongrels, which latter many do for fear of the expense of buying a few pure bred fowls io start with. In determining which breed of fowls to get make up your mind at the start that no one breed can or does possess all the desirable qualities you are in search of. If you wish a breed for laying, get Leghorns or Hamburgs ; if you wish a breed for weight, get some of the Brahmas or cochins ; and if you wish a breed principally for ornament, get the Polish. But give up the idea of getting a combination of all these qualities in one breed. Make up your mind what you wish in the way of fowls, and then select such breed as will answer these require ments best. Give them good, comfortable quarters, supply them liberally with water, giving them requisite care and attention, and yon will never regret jour investment in pure-bred fowls.
Weary Mothers. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
O true mother can escape a measure of "3$? care. Yet some make life a dreary drudgery, seemingly quite beyond the limits of reason ; while others have the happy fac ulty of reducing to the minimum the load of motherly care, without in reality shirking in any degree the responsibility imposed on them-nay, rather in fact coming more near ly up to the full measure ofthat responsibil ity. There are many ways in which the little ones may help us. Even a few steps saved mean a great deal when one is tired or in a hurry. If we will bul take the time and pains to teach our children to ut things in their proper places when they hafe finished using them they will soo leam to do so with out being requested. Even the baby two or three years old will put his playthings away if he thinks it is the "nice way to do." Of course care must be exercised not to tax the children beyond their strength or patience, With a little planning on our part to -make it a pleasant pastime for them they will do many...
Stammering. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
SPEECH is a very complicated process. Many muscles and as many nerves are concerned in it, with a delicacy and rapidity of movement truly wonderful. The whole pro cess is presided over by cerebral centres, which supply the nervous force and co-ordinate or harmonize the various movements. We learn to use our vocal organs so early that our atten tion is not called to the difficulties involved, and we are much surprised at failures. In stammering, the trouble may be said to be in the brain, but there is no organic injury. Something so interferes with the normal out flow of motive force from the nervous centre, that some of the muscles concerned in speech act spasmodically. The spasm may be in the larynx, or in the muscles of respiration. The difficulty very rarely occurs in pronoun cing vowels or in singing, since singing has mainly to do with the vowel sounds. The chief difficulty is with consonants, b, p, d, t, g (hard) and k. The trouble generally shows itself between the ages of fo...
THE EDUCATION OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 March 1892
TJIE EDINGTON 0F W0J)¡iE]\[: #-* you ask what we consider the greatest fô|S| defect in the education of women, we answer : The absence of an aim in life. Faculties used merely for amusement or ornament lose half their strength. The painter who takes long rambles in search jf scenery for his pictures, or the civil en gineer who rides through tracts of country, observing all the characteristics, with refer ence to the shortest and most profitable route for a railroad, has mind and body simultane ously exercised, and is consequently ten times more invigorated than a man who does the same amount of riding or walking under the direction of a physician, with no other object than a vague pursuit of health. And he who studies for some definite use has the advantage over him who pursues the same study merely as a prescribed accomplishment in the routine of education. It is proverbial that women learn with facility any branch to which they apply themselves in earnest. But, unfortunately, the ...

LOVE IN NAME ONLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
^ IÍ6YE IN N^ME 6JÏLY. O the observing mind it is very ap parent that a large amount of affection is charged to love-longing womankind of which she has no sensible knowledge. Not, unfrequently is a worth less son heard to say, " My mother is the best woman alive," and instantly this "best woman " is debited with a sum of filial affection which she has not received, and the worthless one gets a receipt for virtues to which his nature is altogether foreign, and the general verdict is that " he cannot be so bad at heart for he is so fond of his mother." But should this ingrate be questioned as to how much he has done to make and keep his mother good, what would the answer be ? Does the " good woman " want for anything that he can supply, and to what amount weekly in good coin of the realm does he sympathise with her ? Does she lean upon him as upon a pillar of strength, or does she toil on alone, struggling against difficulties and temptations under which a man would long since have su...
HE AND SHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
1I2& ÀHB Sil, BY TOM HALL. THEY sit together before the fire. They are wrinkled and grey, and both are very tired. He has not been successful in life. She has not been happy. Fortune and death have robbed them of everything that they held dear and have left them but the one thing which they do not care for-life. "Do you remember," he asks, "when we were children together ? We used to play to gether every day, and I used to carry your books to school for you and home again, and you would save the greater part of the sweets your mother gave you, for me." "Yes, I remember," she answers. "We were very happy then. "And do you remember," he contimies( "the day when we stood before the altar, you in your white dress, I, in my broadcloth ? Who would have thought then that I would not be .uccessful, and that you would not all be happy your life ? I thought that with you by my side I could conquer the world if it were necessary. "Yes, I remember," she answers. "We were very happy then...
COMPANIONSHIP HEALTHFUL. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
--=».«>-. COMPANIONSHIP HEALTHFUL. THEKE is a wise old German saying that 4&lt; Only a god or a brute can dwell in solitude.', Men and women need congenial companionship both for the sake of health and happiness.' Just as your lungs, after using up all the oxygen in a close room, need to be filled with fresh, out-of-door air, so your mind needs contact with other minds to get new ideas. There is such a thing as mental as well as physical hunger. Herders on the large cattle ranches of the West frequently become mad from the isolation they are forced to endure. Women on lonely farms and in small villages grow morbid and mildly insane, and people do not guess that the cause is want of com panionship. It is for this reason that a woman's work at home is always more trying than that of her husband, who goes to his office, sees new faces, and has the friction that is produced by meet ing other people. Even the farmer has more intercourse with his neighbors at the market, or at ...
The Growing Age. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
The Growing Agc. THE brain of a child is proportionately much arger than an adult's, but of much softer consistency, and its convolutions are not com plete u util the seventh year. This is one of the reasons why early study is dangerous. The child's heart beats much more rapidly than that of an adult, and the growth of the heart, instead of being regular, like the growth of the body as a whole, is accomplished by fits «nd starts. The more rapid action of the heart renders the child peculiarly liable to fever, and the liability is further increased by the weaker vital resistance. Hence childhood is the spec ial season for scarlet fever, measles whooping -cough and other similar complaints. "The irregularity of the heart's growth may . give rise to disturbances of that organ of a seemingly dangerous character, but with proper care they will pass away as the heart attains its full development. Such proper care includes ample nourishment, sufficient sleep and the avoidance of special st...
GERANIUMS FOR WINTER BLOOMING. ARE THE OLD OR THE YOUNG PLANTS BEST AS IN-DOOR BLOOMERS? [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
ARE THE OLD OE THE YOUNG PLANTS BEST AS IN-DOOH BLOOMERS ? THEKE constantly come to me inquiries as to the merits of young or old Geraniums for .winter-blooming. It seems to be th^ general opinion that a young plant will bloom best, and give the greatest satisfaction ; and I notice articles, in many of the floral magazines, in which young plants are advised for this purpose. This advice generally comes from some corres pondent, and I wonder that the editor admits it, because he must know, if he knows anything about the matter, that it is not good advice. The fact is that old plants, in a healthy con dition, are far preferable to young plants for winter-blooming, as any one can satisfy herself by practical test. A young Geranium will have but one or two branches during the first months of its existence unless cut back and made to send out more branches ; and if this is done, the plant will have to have several months given it in which to attain much size, and this constant cutting ba...
ONLY A CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
^ 0NIÍY fi CpiIiD. #« BY LUCIUS F. ROBERTS. IT'S only a child, is it ? Only a child has just as much individuality as you have. It has been decided by excellent authorities that the character is almost fully formed at ten years of age, and babies have been known to pine away from pure jealousy when their mothers have taken other babies to nurse. "A child" has strong feelings, that often amount to passions. It taves ; it can hate ; it grors angry or jealous ; it despairs and rejoices. It can take stock of you, mentally and personally, so as to speak, before you guess it: and you shall show it the same justice and consideration that should be shown to any grown person. Pet it one day and cuff it the next ; promise it a toy and never bestow it, cuff its ears when you are put out ; or make it, as some grown people do, your little slave, sending it up and down stairs on its short legs a dozen times an hour, when you are twice as able to wait upon yourself, and it will understand what you...
Beware of the Cheap Thimble. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
Beware of the Cheap Thimble. GIRLS who sew for a living often suffer from soreness in what is sometimes called the thimble finger, and serious inflammation and swelling is often the result. No sewing girl or woman should let herself be tempted by the low price of thimbles, which are composed of lead or somethig eqnally injurious. Silver or plated are véry much the best and safest, and when these are too expensive, a good substitute can be found in a highly burnished steel thim ble. For practical everyday use this lat ter kind is the most convenient, but pewter or lead should never be used, especially by people whose'flesh is slow to heal af ter a scratch or cut. -"VV\ The following ladies will be at home to discuss the suffrage question at the time mentioned viz. Mrs. Champion, Station-street, Harris Park, Parramatta, 1st Tuesday in Month, 3 to 4 p.m. Mrs. Brown Hawthorn Farm, Jindera, Thurs days. Miss. R. L.

Consolation. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
-vw Consolation. IF you find yourself irritated and unhappy and with fairly good reasons for being so take hold of yourself by the collar, and set yourself down hard, and say to yourself : "Well, what of it ? Supposing that is so, how long will it be so ? What difference will it mak a short time from now ? A good night's sleep will dissipate the most of it. If nothing else will remedy it, death will-and that is not far away. Why should I allow the brief time I have to be happy in this life to he turned into misery ? I will not permit myself to be fretted and chafed and embit tered.'' Then go and dash cold water over your head, and take hold of some work.
Fashions. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
^ Jfagirions ¿¿P Gray and rose are a popular combination. The old-time combination of pale blue and black is revived. There are some exquisite lace pins in very pale blue enamel with forget-me-nots with pearl centres. The Watteau fold in the back of dresses and .capes does not seem to take very well with Australian wearers. Old-fashioned jewellery is com ing into use again. Everything .quaint and old-timey in this line is being gathered up, and will be popular during the coming season Most becoming bonnets have soft crowns of black velvet, with black bands of metal filigree or ?embroidery. The trimming is a Prince of Walts cluster, and bows and loops of velvet ribbon, with lace. For the second early wearing or for dressy occasions there are ?exceedingly pretty hats, made of semi-transparent material. The trimmings are spring flowers, violets and cowslips just now being quite the most popular of the early posies. PINK poppies and cultivated oats are announced to be the favourite tabl...

-O.A ROSEBUD COMFORT FOR BABY,-Very pretty, dainty little comforts for baby's crib may be made nf figured flannelette, whicb can be purchased in beautiful designs for very little.

IDEALS AND STANDARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
IDF ALS Alf El STANDARDS. BY EVELYNE E. I. WATSON. WHAT is an ideal ? A model ol anything that is in the mind, a creature of the imagina tion and intellect. Everyone cherishes an ideal or standard of some sort which varies according to the individuals peculiar temper and disposition ; the livelier the imagination, the more numerous are the ideals created. Young persons are the most subject to ideal worship, but as they grow older and wiser their ideals are fewer and more common place, but they are still cherished and oftimes pur sued with undaunted energy. The merchant strives for an ideal business, the statesman dreams of an unparalled leadership, whilst the musician ever keeps before him the idea of a brilliant career in which he shall be master ever human emotion and passion, exciting and swaying them as he will. These are the ideals of position, which acted upon, stimulate men to unflagging industry to accomplish the realization of their dreams. Without an ideal of some sort a m...
Questioning. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
# Questioning. BY C. MARION. If there is a doubt in your heart to-day That stretches its shadows across to me. If you cannot look in my eyes and say, "My trust is perfect and full and free." For the sake of a day that would work us woe, I pray you pity and tell me so. When you look in my eye and kiss my face, And hold me close to your throbbing heart, Is there ever in it a hint or place That tells you we could in the future part ? Does a doubt, as faint as an undrawn breath, Suggest a parting that was not death ? Dear love, search so deep in your heart I pray, That its dimmest corner shall come lo light ; Then look me straight in the face and say The truth, as the truth seems just and right ; If your love can change-ah, love does, I know I pray you, pity and tell me so.
