Dorothy Dimple, so gay and sweet, Possesses a work-box all complete ; A silver thimble that fit&lt; in a shoe, Needles, and cotton, and scissors too ; A bag full of buttons of every size, And a nice little packet of hooks and eyes. Dorothv Dimple begins to sew, Ilobbledy-hobbledy, to and fro, It looks so easy, she can't think why The stitches persist in going av-ry, Nor why her fingers have suddenly grown As awkward as bits of stick or stone. Dorothy Dimple is sure that she And that tiresome needle will never agree ; Poor little worker, she's losing heart At sight of those stitches so far apart, The cotton has got in another knot ? .She is tired of sewing, and oh, so hot !

The Captain's Telescope. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
The Captain's Telescope. THE good ship Carpentaria was just about to sail for Anstralia, and her master, Captain Gaskett, was dining with her owner, Mr. Graham, who had invited several to meet him, wishing to make his meal on land as pleasant as possible, When the dinner had gone out and the dessert had come in, a little rosy cheeked girl, with long fair hair-the mer chant's only child and especial pet-came tripping into the room with a long ship telescope in her hand. She went round the room with a very earnest look on her fresh little face (as if charged with some business of vast importance,) and walked straight up to the captain. "Captain Gaskett, here's a telescope for you, and 1 hope it'll do you a great deal of pood and knock down all your enemies !'' A general laugh followed this 'presentation speech,' and one of the guests called out "Why, Lizzie, do you think captain Gasket's going to board the first ship ho meets with that telescope in his hand, and knock all the crew int...
APRON STRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
APRON STRINGS« "I promised my mother I would be home at six o'clock." "But what harm will au hour more do ?" "It will make my mother worry, and I shall break my word." .'Before I'd be tied to a woman's apron strings-" "My mother doesn't wear aprons," said the first speaker, with a laugh, "except in the kitchen sometimes, and I don't know as I ever noticed any strings." "You know what I mean. Can't you stay and eee the game finished ?" "I could stay but I will not. I made a prom ise to my mother, and I'm going to keep it." ' Good boy !" said a hoarse voice just back of the two hoes. Thev turned to see an old man, poorly clad and verv feeble.

Buried Sunshine. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
OUTSIDE in tho darkness the winter wind sent the snow and dead leaves flying past the window. Inside, the coal-fire warmed the air and lighted the room for our evening talk. "We children sat in comfortable chairs around the fire, wondering what our dear story-teller would have for us to night,-our gray-haired uncle who knew so much and had seen so many strange countries. We-Harold Elsie, and Bess-watched him anxiously, try ing to be patient. By and by he began : "Ages ago, before any children were here, and before Adam lived in Eden, long before the great elephants and birds and reptiles, which have left their skeletons for us, were on the earth, my story begins. No flowers bloomed, and no fruit trees grew. There were only tall trees, like our pines, and great fems. Deep mosses covered the swampy ground, and everything grew very fast in the hot, moist air." "Wasn't there anything then like what we can see now, uncle ?" "Tes ; the same sun shone, and for long years these plants lived...

The Fairy's Friend. (CONTINUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
¡CONTINUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) THEKK was a far greater crowd than usual at the per formance that evening, for the flaming public announce ments of Christopher and the Fairy had borne profitable fruit. Not only were the seats packed all the way up to the eaves, but rows of extra seats had been provided on the level ground facing the ring. Several sets were done before the manager announced the new performers, which he did in the following graceful manner : " Ladies and gentlemen : I now have the pleasure to introduce to you the most celebrated performers of Her Majesty's Australian colonies--Christopher and the Fairy. You will see for yourselves that Christopher is the largest and most powerful elephant in captivity, and that the Fairy justly deserves her reputation for being the most graceful and daring flying trapeze performer in the world.

OUR LETTER BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
OUR LETTER BOX. AMONG the letters we were unable to find room for in our last issue, was one from Ethel Eipper in which she describes what must indeed be a beautiful home, she has however, we are sony to hear, a very tiny skeleton in the cupboard which we prefer to give in her own words, "I have a very dear friend here, and I am afraid she is going to be married and I do not want her to, because 1 do not think she will be so nice then." The composition, penmanship, and sentiment of the letter reflect great credit upon a girl of thirteen. Mattie Chi-holm also writes to say that she belongs to The Ministering Children's League in Goulburn. Cherrie A. Moriarty's lot is a very happy one among kind uncles and aunts ; she says :-Four pets we have, two dogs, two cats ; the names of the former are Dash (a very fat old cocker-spaniel, we have had him for nine years) and Pipe, a little fox-terrier who can do all sorts of funny tricks. " Emily Luke has a little brother, who although he is only...

Novelties. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
DUST BRUSH FOR FANCY ARTICLES.-This pretty little brush is made from two yards of common clothesdine. It must be new, and should be cut into four equal lengths, and braided together to within turee inches of each end, then double the braid over and tie the two ends of the braid securely together, leaving the eight strands at the two ends together. Untwist these ends and pick out all the strands to form the brush, soak it a few minutes to remove the wavy, crimpy effect, then dry it? and shake out until it is full and light-the braid forms the handle. A bow of blue or pink ribbon, one inch wide and three-quarters of a yard long, is tied around the top of the brush, to conceal the twine which fastens it together. The little brush will be very use ful in removing dust from bric-a brac, and the different fancy orna ments of the parlor, and it has the merit of being pretty and dainty looking enough to be kept in plain sight and ready for service at any moment. A SHOE cleaner formed of a s...
IS IT RIGHT TO GIVE ALL TO THE CHILDREN? [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
IS IT RIGHT TO GIVE ALL TO THE CHILDREN? -=>.->-. IHAVE wondered over again, injjthe face of so many warning examples, parents would in their fife-time give up the whole of the fortune gathered, to the children. But exparience is not only a dear teacher, but the majority of human kind will have almost no other. In spite of the frequent paragraph, and even the ghastly joke of the newspaper man, fires continue to be made the oil stove is recruited with oil while dinner is cooking, and lives are lost through the handling of a thought-to-be unloaded gun. So people read of follies and know of misfortunes, then go and commit the one and invite the other. It is easy to think one's own children superior to the fi ail - ties sometimes seen in others, just as it is hard to believe that evil results will follow the exercise of one's own judgment. But however affectionate and dutiful the off spring, affection will not be lessened, while re spect will be increased by parents continuing to ...

The Wedding Finger. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 1 August 1892
The Wedding Finger. THURK arc facts connected with the ring finger which render it in a peculiar manner an appro priate emblem of matrimonial union. Il is the only finger where two principal nerves belong to two distinct trunks ; the thumb is supplied with its principal nerves from the radial nerve, as are also thc fore-finger, the middle finger and the thumb side of the ring finger, while the ulner nerve furnishes the little finger and the othor side of the ring finger, at the point of extremity of which a real union takes place, It seems as if it were intended by nature to be the matrimonial finger. That the side of the right finger next thc little finger is supplied by the ulnar nerve is frequently proved by striking the elbow against the edge of a bard substance ; the ulnar nerve if struck, sends a thrilling sensation along the little finger and on the same side of the ring finger.
