GOOD EXERCISE [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

GOOD EXERCISE Why should a healihly, growing girl he expected to sit still, anv more than her romping hrot her I about whom no cmcern is manifested, provided he remains in the house only long enough io eat. and sleep'.' What matter is it if outdo ir sports are hard upon dresses and boots? It takes less time and anxiety to mend torn clothes than to watch by beds of sickness, and it costs less to pay the shoemaker than thc doctor. The daughters of the present generation are to bet'ie mothers of the next, and they need outdoor exercise and outdoor sports to make them healthv in body, gentle in disposition and free from all those nervous affections that are the bane of every woman whose days of girlhood were passed in making patchwork an i doing the thousand and one other foolish thing* commonly denominated "girl's work."

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

WANT or COURTKST TO CHILDREN-.-Why are not people more couiteous to children ? People appear to think that while good manners should -be-strenuously exicted from children, precept in this connection may stand instead of example, and that orders may lie '/wen them, and rem ir!« -made upon them, as if they were devoid of natural feelings and perceptions. As a matter of fact, if, when people want children to do some thiBgfor them, they would ask it in the same way in which they would address an equal ; if they would thank them, for little services rendered apeak to them gently, answer their reasonable questions civilly, and a^oid unnecessary comments upon their appearance, they would have far less trouble in teaching them to behave with like con sideration for others. This does not mean that children should be continually waited upon, that i their faults should pass unnoticed, or their I convenience studied before that of their elders merely that, as St. Paul siys, they should not be "...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. A.H.-W« like the pieee "To a Mosquito" best. The other has a touch of the old school gallantry about it, and is a nice conceit, but we of more modern growth think matrimony, not the chief end and aim of woman's living, in any case cur space is so limited that we often reluctantly decline lengthy pieces on that account. E.H.B.-We will carefully read yours before next issue, could you not have made it shorter, see answer to C.B.S--It is said that eyebrows meeting indicate bad temper, if so there are many exceptions to the rule. The treatment you mention could not possibly do any good. There are many so called cures. One among them is to press on the part disfigured by supurfluous hair over night a piece of soft shoe makers wax, when hard in the morning pull it off, when a number of the disfiguring hairs will be attached.

RECREATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

RECBFATION. When a man is hungry, let him eat; when thirsty, drink; when sleepy, sleep; when stiff with sitting, let him run, dance, and jump; when overwoiked and jaded, let him recreate himself. Let every man give himself to some useful and honorable work- work that taxes his best facul ties. Then let this man keep his mind and body as he would his tools or capital, in good working order. Sometimes by fasting, sometimes by frisk iness, sometimes by "popular amusements." at others by unpopular sobrieties. Let a mun re create himself as often and as perfectly as he can, for a busy man will wear out soon enough at the best. But be it always remembered that pleasure fol lowed for pleasure's sake, wears men out sooner that) any ordinary work. Such pleasures unearned by work are called dissipations, because they dis sipate.scatter, squander, and waste one's strength and manhood.

NOVETIES & FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

NOVETIES & FASHIONS. -vK^ .' Black lace bonnets are rqually stylish with pink roses or pale green foliage. The heart brooch is one of the simple forms which came into fashion with the Kmpire style of dress ; it is merely an outline composed of a row of diamonds, sapphires, rubies, or pearls, with a pin across the outline. Hearts of contrasting colors are interlaced. New menu cards bear some well-known phrase which is illustrated by comical sketches of animals. A dressy inish for the sleeves of nice dresses il to leave an inch-and-a-half slit up the front and back, and then gather lace about two inches . and a half all around the wrist. The lace fluffs «nt of each opening and softens the contour of the hand. Under-sleeves are simulated by cutting plain sleeves rather short and adding a full puff of lace or mull shirred on the lower edge to form a ruffle .round the hand. The plastron is gathered at the neck and waist, and sewed to a ribbon collar ried on one side. Square photo...

To a Mosquito. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

To a Mosquito. A poor small insect of an hour. Frail as Bums' "crimson-tipped flower." Poor insect, last of Bummer's race, I'll not thy lonely life efface : Mine's lonely too, poor thing, and so I'll not destroy, but let thee go. Not many days of life to thee, Nor yet of years remain to me, A fellow-feeling makes me kind ; And so to kill thee, I've no mind. Go then, enjoy the little span Of life's small remnant if you can : Since winter spares thee, so will I ; We'll both wait God's own time to die. A.H., G.

Cure for Fits. 1. For a fit of Passion.-Walk out into the open air. You may speak your mind to the winds without hurting any one or proclaiming yourself a simpleton. 2. For a fit of Idleness.-Count the ticking of the clock. Do this for one hour and you will be glad to pull off your coat the next hour, and work like a negro. 3. For a fit of Extravagance and Folly.-Go to the work-house and speak to the inmates of the gaol, and you will be convinced " Who makes his bed of briar and thorn Must be content to lie forlorn. " 4. For a fit of Ambition.-Go into a church yard and read the gravestones. They will tell you the end of ambition- The grave will soon be your bed-chamber, the earth your pillow, corruption your father, and the worm your mother and sister. 5. For a fit of Despondency.-Look on the good things which God has given you in this world, and to those which he has premised his followers in the next, He who (foes into bis garden to look for cobwebs and spiders, no doubt will find...

FAIR FIHTING. FIVE THOUSAND TO A DOZEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

FAIR FIGGING. FIVE THOUSAND TO A DOZEN. THE Trades' and Labour Council have issued a circular calling upon all trade associations which are affiliated to them, to boycott the printing establishments which give employment to women. Four daily newspapers published the notice, not as an advertisement, but as an item for the information and guidance of their readers, We therefore, are able to see here, the mddfern labour problem in a nutshell. A very numerous society of men, financially strong, and powerful in influence, seek to eject from a reasonable and lawful occupation, a few women, numbering altogether less than a dozen. No preliminary enquiry is made as to the salary paid these women, no pretence is made that this action is taken to secure for them fair wages for fair work, no plausible reason is alleged to screen the hard self-interest which dictates the measure. They do not want women to be employed because if women get a footing, they can see that the increased number of worke...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 3 August 1889

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. During the month there has been a change of Ministry in South Australia. The Hon. Dr. Cockburn is a strong advocate for Woman's Suffrage. He is now the Premier and we hope that he may see his way clear to placing Woman's Suffrage in the Govern ment policy. In connection with the new School of Mines and Industries, there are dressmaking classes, and we learn that a large number of pupils have entered. n connection with the Adelaide Art School, which is a State institution, the director, Mr. Gill, has been the. means of establishing a school of art needlework. The designs are drawn by scholars of the School of Design ; they are then worked by the lady needleworkers. When the article is sold, the proceeds, on equitable principles are divided between the designer and the needleworker. Mr. Gill helps thus to foster colonial taste', and to provide a remunerative opening for many lady-students of art. He is sanguine of great things, and hopes bye and by, to produce work wo...
