PUZZLES FOR ALL PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 May 1892
PUZZLES FOR ALL PARTIES. One ot the most interesting puzzles, for large partie» or small, is the crown problem puzzle. Take ten penny pieces and place them in a row, thus-I, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7> 8> 9&lt; IO- Now the puzzle consists in this. You have to lift a penny up, and passing over two pennies at a time, neither more nor less, crown each penny, going on in this fashion till the whole are crowned. In passing over a penny already crowned it is to be reckoned as two pennies. Very easy this, you say ? Well, just try it. SOLUTION.-Place the 4th penny on the ist, th« 6th on the 9th, the 8th on the 3rd, the 2nd on the 5th, »nd the 7th on the 10th.

Butterflies that Bathe. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 May 1892
Butterflies ithat Bathe. It is commonly thought that a butterfly dreads the water, as a fine lady dreads but evidently this is not *true| in Australia. The case of,an Australian butterfly deliber ately entering the water to take a bath is re corded by Mr. G. Lyell, Jr. He saw it alight close to the water into which it backed until the whole of the body, and the lower part of hind legs were under the water, the two fore legs only retaining their hold on the dry land. After remaining in this position for something like half a minute, it flew away, apparently refreshed. Mr. Lyell says-"during the morning I noticed a number doing the same thing. In one instance no less than four were to be seen within a space of not more than three yards, and to make sure that I waa not ? deceived, I captured several as they rose from the water, and found in each case the body and lower edge of the hind wings quite wet. While in the water the fluttering of the wings,. so noticeable at other times, was s...
CELIA'S COMPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 May 1892
CELIA was twelve years old ; a bright little girl at her lessons, anxious to beat the head of her classes, and a general favourite in school. No matter how long or hard the lesson, the first little face to brighten, as the teacher marked it off t° the class, was sure to be Celia Brown's. Accordingly, Miss Nelson was prepared to re ceive a bright look of acquiescence from Celia, at least, when she one morning announced to the little class that a composition would be expected from each one on the Friday of the following week. But she was disappointed. To her surprise, Celia's face said as plainly as words could have spoken, ''I can't possibly do it, Miss Nelson, and it's of no use to try." "What are we to write a composition about, Miss Nelson ?'' asked one girl, whose face matched Celia's in expression. "I don't know enough to tell of one single thing in this whole world !" Miss Nelson smiled. "Ob. yes, you do, my dear." she replied, pleas antly. "I think you will find you know some ...
Paying Back. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 May 1892
Fayi»g Back, "PLEASE, mother, call Jessie in ; we want to go down to the mill and come home hy the race and we don't want to be bothered with Jessie." Netta Wallace stood at her mother's open window, holding the little five-year old by4the hand ; Virginia waited at a little distance. "Hut I want to go, too." sobbed the unie one ; "I has walked to the mill osten, and I wants to go, too." "Why don't you take her, Netta?" asked her mother, stopping the whir of her busy machine wheel to settle this trouble. "Oh, she is such a bother !" cried Netta fret fully ; "she has to be lifted over the fences and led by the hand, and she is in the way." ' Come here, Virginia," called the mother) turning away from the machine and leaning out of the window "Sit down there on the grass, all of you, I want to tell you a little bit of a story, but it is a short one and won't keep you back long. "Thirteen years ago there came into o cer tain house that I know of a wee little pink baby. She was a great jo...
TO COMPETITORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 May 1892
TO COMPBTITOES. Ou» young friends who were successful dur ing the last quarter in obtaining prizes and whose names we had much pleasure in publish ing last issue will now find a fresh series of subjects to compete for. Those who were unsuc cessful before, will, we hope, keep the motto before them-"Try, try, try again," and act up to it. Those who are doubtful of their powers should read "Celia's Composition" in this issue of "THE DAWN." We hope to have a much larger number of competitors in future and that every month will increase the number by boys and girls telling their schoolmates, not only about the prizes but that "THK DAWN" only costs three shillings per year.

DARKENED SICK ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
DARKENED SICK BOOM. THE custom, in spite of modern sanitary teaching, still prevails of keeping' the occupant of a sick room at all hours in a darkened room. There is no sense in this ; it is as if the attend ants were anticipating the death of the patient ; and, if the reason is asked for, it is as incon sistent as the act. The reason usually offered is that the patient cannot bear the light-as though the light could not be cut off from the patient hy a curtain or screen and as though to darken one part of the room it were necessary to darken the whole of it. The real reason is an old superstitious practice connected with small-pox and other terrible diseases involving the exclusion of light. A more injurious practice really could not be maintained, as by it a great remedy is lost. Sunlight diffuses through a room and warms and clarifies the air. It has a direct influence on the minute organic poisons-a distinctive influence that is most precious,-and it has a cheerful effect upon ...
POISON OF THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
POISON OF THE TEETH. BITING the nails is an exceedingly dangerous practice, as the biter never knows when to stop, and at any moment is liable to bite into " the quick " and cause blood poisoning. Even when the utmost care is taken of the teeth, a poisonous secretion is apt to collect on them, and the en trance of a minute portion of this into the cir culation may prove as certainly fatal as the pus on a surgeon's scalpel.
WASTED VIGOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
WASTED VIGOUR. IT is not overwork, except at the table, that causes so many to break down. There is a great deal more softening of the liver than softening of the brain ; too much exercise of the jaws, and not enough of the muscles. People are dying everywhere of physical excesses, of useless expenditures of vitality. Probably five sixths of the constitutional vigor of «very man and woman is wasted, and the last twenty or thirty years of their lives are eked out miserably in consequent pain and dis comfort.
ARE COLDS CATCHING? [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
ARE COLDS CATCHING? ' DOH'T come near me, I have a cold.' If colds are not ' catching.' as folk say, how has this come to be a form of expression familiar in so many households? A well-known physician propounds this problem, but he frankly confesses that he is unable to solve the question. Some times he is inclined to think that colds in a house spread by a kind of sympathy. Against this, however, as against ordinary contagion, there is the argument that all affected may be at the time under one and the same influence. So it stands now in respect to influenza. One day the doctor is called to a house to find several persons suffering with this disease, and the history supplied is that one of the sufferers having contracted the affection many miles away, where it was prevailing, brought it home with him. He then goes to another house to find a large establishment with every member of it free from the affection except one, who has never been exposed, who has never even left the house, ...
POET'S PAGE. FORWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
^ _._. y . FORWARD. STRIVE 1 though the end seem failure-some must fail, Work ! though the wage seems loss instead of gain ; Stand with firm foot, and hand upon the flail Though in your barns ye store no winnowed grain. Earth groans beneath injustice, want, and woe, Let thy heart listen to each bitter cry ; Till, from self's smouldering ashes, all aglow, A stronger self soars upward to the sky. There comes the victory in after years ! There comes the Guerdon-though by others won ; The corn your failing hands have threshed appears A mellow harvest ripening in the sun ! And in that glorious, triumphant song ; Of women's voices, equal, blessed and free, What matter, if, Time's pinions fierce and strong Sweep out remembrance of thv work and thee ? WARNER SNOAD.
