A PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
A PRAYER. BY KATE VENNAH. Teach me to sing when my heart is aching, When my flesh is wounded then let me laugh ; Send me to comfort hearts that are breaking, Make me smile bravely when gall I quaff. .Send me with faith to souls that doubt Thee Earnestness, deep to the careless heart ; Unto proud souls that have lived without Thee Let me Humility's grace impart. Let me awaken those who slumber, Teach them to watch with fidelity ; Place in my pathway thorns without number, So I may lead back one soul to Thee ! Let me be heedless of human praises, Let me be calm when dangers arise ; Let me gaze coldly where passion blazes, Let me walk chastely, with lowered eyes. Let me depart from my best and my dearest If, by my staying, I cloud a white thought. Oft soul to the soul it loves best is nearest When hearts, divided, with pain are fraught !
THE HINDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
THE HINDERERS. j UV IDA WHIPPLE BENHAN. I We're very careful souls, we're very careful souls ; Our touch is velvet and our step is down ; Our speech is honey served in painted bowls ; We smile, but never frown. We're very careful souls-why should one wait, Careless of shelter, till the tempest pours ? Whatever task delays without the gate, We hide us safe indoors. .' Hush !" is onr watchword, whispered under breath : Our motto this : " Let well enough alone !" We barrow, dim with dust, nor wait for death To hide us 'neath its stone. Theie are who lift their faces to the sky, Sun-fronted, sun-illumined, strong of hand. We tremble as their earnest ranks go by To labor in the land ! They sow, they reap, they do, they even dare ! We hinder, cautiously, not overmuch, Laying a hand on progress here and there To thwart her with a touch. We're very careful souls ; we would not see This venerable order pass away ; The hoary past is what it used to be A pattern for to-day. Yet, should the lou...
WOMAN'S PART IN EVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
I^Ï^HE race has not yet reached its acme |M||| of development, its highest state of '^H^a unfoldment. It is surely climbing upward, but it has now reached a point whence it can climb no higher, until it makes more moral progress ; until it throws off its burden of oppression of man against man, and man against woman. There can be no further advancement until the demons of greed and ambition, dishonesty and treachery ( intemperance and lust, whose temptations not even the mkiisttrs, who stand as moral leaders of the people, nor the judges who decree the highest justice of the age, can withstand, shall be overthrown and cast out. And lastly, must the masculine dominance of the mind and person of woman be removed and woman take her rightful place in the world as man's recognized equal ; a place that her development is rapidly preparing her to occupy with honor. These are the stumbling blocks in the way ?of the higher evolution of the race. These are the obstacles, in himself, that man ...
That the Present Position of Women is not Conducive to the Highest Possible Development of a Nation. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
[Extracts from Speech by Mrs. Hastie, at School of Arts Friday Nights' Debating Club.] That the Present Position of Women is not Conducive to the Highest Possible Development of a Nation, MY remarks are intended to apply more particularly to Australian women with regard - to their posit'on aa workers or wage earners, and I maj- say here, as a basis of argument, that I do not think the position of women as wage earners is sufficiently recognised in this and other countries, to ensure the highest development of which a nation may be capable. I think all will agree that it is for the best interests of a nation that its women should te healthy, intelligent self-dependent. Where these attributes are the State must progress, and every nation should, as one of its para- I mount duties, allow its women every facility and encouragement for maintaining their self dependence, for it seems to nae where there is individual independence there follows as a natural sequence, health, intelligence an...
Fashions. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
BLACK straw hats and bonnets, with velvet trimming and autumn tinted flowers, or a bit of green, yellow or red in ribbon or feathers, are «bout the thing for summer wear. They can be stylish worn with any sort of a costume through out the autumn and well into the spring. A good plan is to replace light, delicate tints on summer hats and bonnets with richer, warmer colours, and wear them during this ' between season,' waiting the arrival of summer millinery before selecting .the new hat. VELVEI, in the piece, or ribbon, retains its favour as a trimming, and later entire hats and bonnets made of piece velvet will be worn. Velvet or ribbon ties are seen on many bonnets, particularly those designed for middle-aged ladies who need the soft setting they make for the lower part of the face. Velvet is shown in all the fashionable shades, and will be combined with all kinds of garnitures throughout the winter. APROPOS of the above the present is a good time to buy velvets, plushes, &...
Humorous. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
Humorous. A blind carpenter took his hammer and saw, A dumb wheel-wight picked up a hub and spoke. To which may be added that a deaf farmer drove in his flock and herd. (Tourist No r, male)-That Indian is a fine specimen of a fellow. See how he carries himself ! (Tourist No 2, female)-Yes, and see how he lets his wife carry every thing else ! "Of course it hurts, Josiah," said Mrs. Chugwater, as she applied the liniment and rubbed it in vigorously. "Rheumatism always hurts. You must grin and bear it." "I'm willing to bear it, Samantha," groaned Mr. Chugwater, "but blame me if I'm going to grin." Little Minnie, whose parents are poor, is ealing dinner with some rich relatives, one of whom says : " Well, Minnie, how do you like your dinner-better than at home ?" " It doesn't taste much better, but I don't get done as soon as I do at home." Stage Manager-l!y jove, there's a nice thing happeo ing on the stage ! Proprietor-Eh ! What's up ?

In a Wildness of "Donts," WITH NOW AND THEN A DO. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
In a Äiluenwss of "gants," *? WITH NOW AND THEN A DO. ~ - -'VVVW- ? ONE cannot pick up a paper or magazine ?without that ominous word " Don't " confront ing them. Some one will say " Why, I never found it so." Well, perhaps not in just so many letters, but in some guise or other it will surely be found. My favorite household journal comes out and says one can't keep the skin clear and pure without the aid of soap and water, and plenty of it. "As you value your precious hide, do not touch soap and water," says some one else. " Rub the skin vigorously.' says one. "Massage the face very, very gently," says another, " you are not supposed to be scouring a porker's hide, and you wil ruin the delicate cuticle." "Take a cold water bath before breakfast,' says one. "Take a tepid bath," "take ! scalding hot bath "; then after we have though seriously about trying them all at once, som one throws us into fits by telling us not t bathe at all ; dry rubbing is all sufficient. " To avoid corns w...

THE HOUSEHOLD LAUNDRY. HINTS FOR WASHING COLOURED CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
THE HOUSEHOLD LAUNDRY. HINTS FOR WASHING COLOTJBKD CLOTHES. A SÜDS of medium strength should be prepared and rendered sufficiently cool to allow the hands to be borne in it. The clothes should then be washed out as rapidly as possible, and rinsed in a manner similar to that employed for the white portion. One of the great difficulties met with in the washing of that class of goods is the tendency to fade ; but in nearly all cases a slight precaution will prove an effectual preventive. In washing black clothes, a little bullock's gall in the water helps to set and renovate the colors. For print, it is recommended to first immerse them in salt and water, made by putting three gills of salt ina gallon of water, Into this, while it is hot, put the prints, allowing them to remain till cool ; then wash and rinse in the usual manner. A few drops of vitriol put into the rinsiug water is also said to fasten all colors in prints, with the exception of black, for which the salt solution above,...
"ELSE, TO-MORROW, A STRANGER WILL SAY WHAT WE HAVE THOUGHT AND FELT." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 July 1892
"ELSE, TO-MORROW, A STRANGER WILL SAY WHAT WE HAVE THOUGHT AND FELT.'' Ii is an open secret that the leaders of the popular moral movements of our day do not give their honest thought to the public. The excuse which they invariably offer for this fraud upon the public is, that their followers are not ready for the truth ; that should they express their honest convictions, the people, not being ready to follow, would be alienated from them entirely. Henry Ward Beecher said to a friend, when upbraided by him for not giving his honest opinions on the marriage question :-" If, by keej ing only forty feet ahead of my congregation I can lead them up higher, would I not be foolish to place myself eighty feet from them, and thus be lost to their sight ?" But such reasoning is no longer excusable. To-day that unknown quantity, the public, is doing its own thinking. Blind following of leaders is becoming unpopular. The people are doing their own thinking and are refusing to take their opinion...
