DAYS OF CRIME AND   YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. (Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by Special Permission.) CHAPTER XIX.   THE VOYAGE OUT. Having been very far from a favorite with the chaplain of Millbank, my sur- prise was great when I found that I was appointed as clerk to the religious in- structor on board the convict ship "Joseph Soames," freighted with two hundred and forty-nine convicts, and bound for Melbourne. In fact, the ap- pointment had in the first instance been intended not for such a miserable, un- converted sinner as myself. But, upon examining, the caligraphy of the contrite youth who had been selected, was found to be not on a par with his piety, and so the post was conferred upon my ungene- rate self. I was drafted on board the Joseph     Soames with some sixty odd juveniles from Millbank, all destined for Mel- bourne, and promised conditional par- dons on arrival. There were already on board a ...

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887

HOUSEHOLD. Flying Glassware.-Glass is frequently said by servants to "fly of itself." It never flies from the thin to the thick part, but the reverse invariably. We once knew aservant girl who said a richly cut sugar bowl of a flanged shape had flown, and she found the pieces inside! it, so that by her experience glass not only flies but jumps. Sudden clhange of temperature causes flyage. For example, glass kept in a cold frosty pantry will fly when brought into a hot room, so a glass from a warm place will fly when ice is put into it. Thick ice plates in glass should never be used, nor should ice plates be touched by a warm hand when in use. It is best to pout them upon a china plate. China dishes, or even the common earthen ware, should never be put into the oven or upon the hot plate. Warm water, not hot, will make themsufliciently heated for use. Glass dishes should never have hot things placed upon them; flyage is greatly pre vented if the dishes be warmed gradually. In frosty ...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887

sabres9' Column., ::WomenLnBnsiness.-Business men and heads of government departments havesome-. times said to me'that-they have tried women clerks, found them unsatisfactory, and have given up the experiment. Their objections are, that women are inclined to ask and ac cept favors, and;to.excuse .themselvcsfor. shortcomings, and that they, the empiloyers, find it difficult or unpleasant to - bring women to time," and demand the exact and prompt performance by them of all their duties, such as would be required of a man in the same place. There is no excuse for any women who takes this line of action, when she has secured work. She should know that every time she asks for a half hour's leave of absence, every time she comes into the ofice late, every time she excuses herself, with a smile, or worse yet, a tear, for some piece of carelessness, she is injuring not only her own chances of earn ing a livelihood, but those of all otherwomen who have to go out into the world to earn their ...
