POET'S PAGE. I Reared a Temple in my Heart. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
POET'S PAGE. I Reared a Temple in my Heart. BY MATTIE BONNER. I reared a temple in my heart A temple strangely fair And in its h«ly place apart I place my idol there; And from the world I fled away, And worshipped there by night and day. None saw the altar-fires glow; None smelt the sweet perfume Of incenc: rushing to and fro Throughout the holy room; While throbbing music, low and deep. Around me ever seemed to sweep. Far hidden from all human pain, All safe from human eye. I lowly knelt and knelt again, With smile or sobbing sigh; For with a passion not of clay I loved my idol night and day. O, grandly beautiful it stood, And grandly, strangely fair; I would have sacrificed my blood While low adoring there. Yea, from the world I sicken'd tum'd One love, one thought within me burned. Ah yet ! How weak we mortals prove, How like unto the grass, Tkat qnicken'd with its life doth move, Yet withers when we pass ! How like unto the clouds that fly, Now blue, now black, across the sky. A...
Anything for Peace. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
Xi lMtï?%ng fer ^tixa. ¿JP BY AMELIA h. BARR. ' 1 fTEPHEN Thirske was a genuine Yorkshireman, long-headed, shrewd and sturdy, serving Mammon with all his might in the great brick factory where he worked six hundred "hands" There everything went on so promptly and regularly that it was evident one dominant will ruled, But no man is absolute ; and it Stephen ruled his six hundred "hands" like an autocrat, he shrunk at home into the obedient slave of one little, petted woman. Mrs, Thirske had been a great beauty, delicate and gentle. Stephen had begun his married life by a tender submis sion to the frailty that was sucha contrast to his own rude health, and now the little woman he could carry like a baby ruled him like a czarina. It was impossible to retrace the gradual steps by which this influence had been gained. Thirske was man enough to know that it was fatal to his home-happiness and his family's welfare, and to make occasional determinations to reform things ; but as yet they ha...
Valuable Hints [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
. Valuable Hints NOVEL METHOD OF RAISING ORANGE TREES.-In the Azore Islands they propagate orange trees in a curious way, derived fromthe Chinese. A branch with a diameter of four or five inches is chosen, around which a circular incision is cut. Around this straw matting is wound in the shape of a funnel and filled with beaten earth, from the middle of May to the middle of June. Roots soon begin to push, and by the following winter it is provided with sufficient to sup port it when detached from the parent stem. The young plant thus obtained often bears fruit at the end of two or three years. WEARING SHOES ALTERNATELY.-It is true economy for every person to have several pairs of shoes and to, wear them alternately. In the first place, by so doing corns and other soreness of the members may to a consid erable degree be avoided. These come from continuous friction or pressure" at a certain point, and as no two pairs of shoes "bear on the feet quite alike, the change breaks up tbe con...

CHILDRENS PLEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
CHILDRENS PLEASURES. THERE is frequently as much-to say the least-enjoy ment in looking forward to pleasures as is gained by their realization ; parents do not always think of this, or, when they do think of it, abstain from telling the children of an intended treat because "they will bother so." And indeed it is oftentimes very trying to bear the chattering and questioning of the youngsters when one feels over burdened with household cares ; and every mother is justified in trying to save her " nerves " all she jan, but we all know the different degrees of happiness, we have in accepting a small gift kindly offered, and a great kind ness ungraciously given. And this counts just the same in relation to giving pleasure to children. A child will be happy for days in anticipation of even the most simple and inexpensive pleasure, the actual enjoyment of which may not, perhaps, last longer than a few hours. This increased happiness to the children is well worth the trouble of answering a...

Young Idea. FOR YOU. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
FOR YOU. I have some good advice for you, My merry little man. 'Tis this : where'er your lot is cast Oh, do the best you can! And find the good in everything, N, matter what or where. And don't be always looking for The hardest thing to bear, Oh, do not stand with idle hands, And wait for sorr ething grand, While precious moments slip away Like grains of shining sand ! But do the duty nearest you, And do it faithfully, l'or stepping-stones to greater things These little deeds shall be. In this big world of ours, my boy, There's work for all to do ; Just measure by the golden rule That which is set for you ; And try it with the square of truth. And with the line of right ; In every act and thought of yours, Oh, keep your honour bright !
AN ADVENTURE IN THE DARK. A SEA SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
AN ADVENTURE IN THE DARK. A SEA SKETCH. IN the month of June 44, business called me to Martin ique. The Corsica, a stanch full-rigged brig, owned by Bartol, of Baltimore, was the only vessel which offered me means of transit at the time, and in her I took passage She was not meant for passenger traffic, and had no accommodation thereforjbut I had known her commander Captain Paine, in other years, and he welcomed me cor dially, and made me comfortable. Toward the night of the Fourth of July, we had got into the region of storms, and shortly after seven o'clock on the evening of that day the wind came out from the north-east, and very soon great drops of rain came pat tering upon the deck. "There's thunder in this," said Paine who had donned his storm-gear. If it was to be a thunder-storm at sea, I meant to be a spectator; and I had come prepared for such emergencies. I went below and donned a full oil-cloth suit, and having pulled my broad- flapped sou'-wester over my brows, I return...
LITTLE BLUE EYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 April 1892
J^ITTLE J3L,UE ^YE, On the side of the great mountain, and beneath the edge of a huge rock, there grew a little b Iue-eyed violet. She always was awake to catch the first beams of the morning sun, to drink in the dews of the night with thankfulness, and never dreamed that her lot was not the most desirable in the world. Near by stood a tall, strong and majestic oak, tower ing up high towards Heaven. He had strong roots in the mountain, gone down deep to gather up his food ; and his great branches, spreading out far and wide, waved gracefully in the wind. One clear, bright morning the old oak looked off to the mountain, and down on the smaller trees, and felt that really he was a tower of strength. "How far I can see ! What a large mountain I have from which to draw my foad ! Why, if I could only walk I could tread all these little trees under foot, and be mon arch alone. How I do despise anything that is weak or small. Why can't everything be strong and great and magnificent like?" ...
