The Children's Page. A FAITHFUL HORSE [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
" ^ The v Children's .> Page, A FAITHFUL HORSE 0NE day last autumn, a miner, who lives alone in a small hut situated in the foot hills, several miles from his nearest neighbor, reached home about dusk from a« extended prospecting tour, almost worn out and sick. He removed the saddle and bridle from his horse and turned Jiim loose to graze, and, entering his hut threw himself down upon his cot and soon fell mto a restless slumber, from which he awoke late in ths night with a raging fever. Almost delirious, he knew not what to do being alone and without medicines. It might happen that some neighbor would pass by in the morning, but there was no certainty that any person would call for days or possible weeks. , . I A realization of his helpless condition aggravated his di-eas'e, and the poor man grew worse. Morning came, and he was unable to leave his bed. .His horse, his one faithful friend and companion, could be heard near by, evidently waiting for his coming. | All day long the ...

A girl was showing her little brother a stajk of millet, or broom, she said-'"See Bertie, that is how broom grows " "Will they have handles on all ready to u*e, when they grow up ? " he asked. . A young Sunday school teacher noticed that in Iu-r cHss of little boys, one named Joseph was absent. "Where is Joseph this aftern...
WORD COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
WORD COMPETITION. In announcing in our last number the prizes offered (or the greatest number of words made from the letters of " Sunlight Soap, " we were too much hurried to state the conditions which should have been observed. Many com petitors in consequence included in their lists Greek and Latin words and Geographical names, but as the blame was ours we had to undertake the labour of weeding 0ut and revising. We carried this out with great care afíl infinite labour so that the chances of all were perfectly equalised and the result próVed that after all the relative positions were scarcely changed. As no prohibition was made, the plurals of all standard English words had to be allowed and the corrected figures show that about 750 current English words aie all that can be formed from the words selected. The competition is practically a war of dictionaries, and those who have found out the greatest number of obsolete words, which though disused, are still a part of the English lan...
PRIZE COLUMN. HANDWRITING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
PRIZE COLUMN. HANDWRITING. In last issue a line dropped out of the paragraph ; it was that very important line regarding the prize of five shillings to be awarded. Nevertheless, in spite of this discouragement, ten specimens have been sent in, and of the ten who put their trust in our good intentions, rather than our promises, the five shilling prize falls to BIRDIE HOLLOWAY, I 60, Redfern street, Redfern. She is only eight years old, and her copy, particularly i n the large hand, shows great regularity of form, and c areful attention to differing thickness in up-strokes and down. The specimen sent by DOROTHY ARMSTRONG ranks second ; it is a very good copy written in a firm hand. EMILY I. HOBBS and FLORENCE M. CARNE are also commended for the copies sent in by them.

THE HOME LEVERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
' : TUMS OMEN no longer apologize for being advanced, KFS£1 progressive, intelligent. The time has gone by when pantie sentiment was opposed to her mental develop ment and the college doors closed against her. The press that bluffed and ridiculed her aspirations now gives choice space to the recountal ol her triumph, her ideas and even to her efforts in behalf of her own emancipation. It is now generally conceded by the most intelligent that 'granting the ballot to woman will not uproot the home. The home ha» been in jeopardy in the minds of the op poser» for many years. This was a praise-worthy con sideration. The feminine lingerie that was to be dragged and bftdnbbled in the mud and mire of politics has also been in masculine custody ; this objection still hangs fire, but the one revetting to the upheaval of the home is Bfictry .generally worn out. While there are women there will be homes, and while there are men there will be gqod things prepared to eat. There »re levers in &...
MATURE WIVES AND YOUTHFUL HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
MATURE WIVES AND YOUTHFUL HUSBANDS. The more intensely people live in matters of thought and intellect the more likely are young men of their own accord to marry women older than themselves. It is quite remarkable how many men of genius have found the companionship of older women congenial, and how many women of genius have preferred youthful to mature husbands. It seems as if women, like men, sometimes exercised a fascination which, though magnetic and personal, is not wholly dependent on attractiveness in &nbsp; person. Like Iseult's "sweet charm, " in Matthew &nbsp; &nbsp; Arnold's poem, " it will not fade with the dull year away. " nor is it merged into some other sort of loveli ess, like that of the ordinary maiden, which passes sensibly into a placid wifely and motherly beauty. The charm of which we speak continues to the end to be just itself, and to command Intense affection and devotion. Its power is felt by all who come in contact with the I possess...

WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1889
A paper read at the Dawn Club by the President. [Louisa Lawson] &nbsp; THE popular idea of an advocate of women's rights is this:-she is an angular hard-featured withered creature with a shrill, harsh voice, no pretence to comeliness, spec tacles on nose, and the repulsive title, "blue-stocking" visible all over her. Metaphorically she is supposed to hang half way over the bar which separates the sexes, shaking her skinny fist at men and all their works. I don't think it w ill be difficult to unseat this idea as soon as we can get people to think about the subject at all, for it is remarkable that almost every thinking man who does investigate the topic seriously, at once hands in his . allegiance. For as a clever American woman has said: "There are no arguments against women's suffrage-- only 'objections'.'' Now as we have no time to be elaborate or diffuse, we must be methodical and we will take first the, reasons why women claim the right to vote ; then we will pick up th...
One of us Two. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889
One of us Two. The day will dawn when one of us shall hearken : in vain to hoar a voice that has grown dumb ; 1 And morns will fade, noons pale a td shadows &lt;i ai kt. n, While sad eyes watol) for feet that never conic. ; One of us two must some time face existence j Alone with memories that hut shnaa'u pain, And the^e sweet days will come back in tb : distance Like dreams oí summer dawns tu ninrht> of rain. One of us two. wit'., tortured hean half broken Stadl read long-treasured 'cttcis into' salt ic-ars ; Shall kiss with anguished lips euch cherid'ea token That speaks of these luvc-crowned delicious years. One of us two shall find all light, all beauty, All joy on earth a talc for ever done ; Shall know henceforth that ¡ile means 'adv duty j () God ! O God ! have pity on that one. -Selected.
Now. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889
Now. If you have a kind word, say it ; Throbbing hearts soon sink to rest. If you owe a kindness, pay it ; Life's sun hurries to the west. Can you do a kind deed ? Do it, From despair a soul to sa^e ; Bless each day as you pass through it, Marching onward to the grave. If some grand thing for to-morrow You are dreaming, do it now : From the future do not borrow ; Frost s jon gathers on the brow. Speak thy word, perform thy duly ; Night is coming deep with rest ; Stars will gleam in faceless beauty, I Grasses whisper o'er thy breast. Days for deeds are few, my brother ; Then to-day fulfil thy vow. If you mean to help another, Do not dream it-do it now. - Gla*!lmo Cliris/iuit.
A Bridal Greeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889
A Bridal Greeting. Joy anil gladness ! Joy and gladness Hood your hearts like summer rain, Filling every empty crevice, softening every grief and pain : Life's long road lies one before you, may it nevermore be twain. ? Earnest life ol useful action : honour steering true and straight : Home-love circling wider round now, till the stranger at your gate Feels he breathes a breath of Kden in this wwi ! t nf v rungs and hate. Thise be yours ! And though of sorrow all must bear a dreary day ; May your clouds have silver linings, and athwart the gloomiest giay, Hidden sunbeams cast a radiant rainbow light across your way.

The Poet's Page. Her Reflections. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889
ol. ? . . ' c Her Reflections. A little lonely room ! a lonely fire By which I sit and dream, Unfetter'd Fancy soaring in her flight, Above the things that seem. Alone in ev'ry joy and grief am I, No loving heart is nigh, To catch the laughter trembling on my lip, To echo each faint sigh. Some women have so over-much of love, Of sweet anxiety, That they grow careless of the precious gift And let it wasted be. Would that some little of a slighted love Might reach my aching heart Might give its soothing comfort to my pain, And heal the weary smart ! Sitting alone, here at my fire, I see A tender picture glow, In colours radiant as the sunset's gleam, And just as soon they go ! And once again, the lonely room, ihe fire, The thoughts that are my own The rude awakening from the pleasant dream Alwavs- till Heath-alnnpt
A DEAR EXPERIENCE. Chap. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889
; ]i MM E^PEl^IEjNCE. ^ ; By S. Isadore Miner. Chap. IV. "We will surely find Dottie by noon," said George. '1 have placards and handbills scattered everywhere, detectives at work, and if nothing is lound out before, I shall offer a reward this afternoon. It's the strangest thing that the other party has'nt put in any enquiries. Don't look so disheartened dear, it will come right soon." Amy's pitiful, pleading look was indeed worse to witness than last night's tempest, of which George anti cipated a renewal. But she had seemingly exhausted her tears, which were now succeeded by that stony, unnatural grief, sad to see in one so young, and which, as the days wore on, bringing no trace of the nursing child, gradually settled into a dull, life-sapping apathy, Irom which no thing could rouse her. Yes, the days wore on ; a week had dragged by on leaden feet, and yet nothing had been heard of Dottie. The little stranger still laughed and played in ils usurped nursery, and did not seem at a...
