POET'S PAGE. Christmas. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
Christmas. I 0 blessed day, which gives the eternal lie To self and sense, and all the brate within ! Oh ! come to us, amid this war of life ; To hall and hovel, come ; to all who toil In senate, shop, or study ; and to those Who, sundered by the wastes ol half a world, Ill-warmed and sorely tempted, ever face Nature's brute powers and men unmanned to brutes Come to them, blest and blessing, Christmas Day. Tell them once more the tale of Bethlehem, The kneeling shepherds and the Babe divine. And keep them men indeed, fair Christmas Day.
WOMEN AND MEN. The Coming Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
WOMEN AND MEN. The Coming Woman. COULD an American statesman 01 a century ago come back to life, the thing that would amaze him most would not be, I suspect, the existence of electric lights and of phonographs, for these would lie outside the sphere of public life, which would be our supposed Bip Van Winkle's chief concern. Nor would it even be, within his own domain, the Australian ballot law, or civil service reform, or the efforts of a great nation to get rid of its surplus money. It would be the spectacle of a strange alteration in the very basis of government ; it would be the fact that in organisme five new States, each of vast area and unknown resources, a larger part of the time of the organising body has been devoted to deciding whether men alone, or women also, Bhould become voters in these new-born commonwealths. Nay, his chief won der would lie in the fact that the final debate in each case did not turn on the question ot "whether;" but rather on the question "how far," ...

THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL In spite of the popular belief that "there is a woman at the bottom of everything," there are a few who still believe that "the &nbsp; lore of money is the root of all evil," and we need hardly say that in our opinion the latter is by far the more fertile cause of misery. During the last few years in Sydney we have seen a long succession of prosecutions for fraud and embezzlement committed by clerks and others in positions of trust. These men did not steal to procure food for starving wives, or medicine for sickly children, they were all in receipt of salaries sufficient to procure them the necessaries and the comforts of life. They stole that they might spend more, or to enable them to gamble and grow rich with a bound, and their histories show clearly enough that crime is a natural outcome of this insensate love of riches and extravagant display. Even with the mass who happily keep honest, the same passion keeps men anxious and &nbsp; chafing, ...
THE DAWN CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
THE DAWN CLUB. THE usual social and literary meeting was held on Wednesday the 11th Nov., and was very successful, as indeed all the club literary meetings are. The topic for consideration was the well-worn theme, "Woman's Mission." Mrs. Gent read a paper in which she touched rather upon the mission of the thinking and progressive women of to-day than upon the life object of women in general. She quoted Carlyles adjuration, "If you have any work to do in God's name, do it !" and pointed out that the mission of those who perceive the sorrows of the world and hope to effect some mitigation is to act at once and not be content with talking, to find out what can be done to lighten the burdens of all sorrowing or suffer ing sisters and to try to educate up to a higher standard those "backboneless" women who cannot and will not help themselves. She remarked that women who live in comfort, with good husbands to take care of them have not even a remote idea of the sufferings num bers of the...
A Woman Hall-keeper. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
A Woman Hall-keeper. The Bath Town Council have appointed a woman to the above office under circumstances narrated as follows : - "The Corporate Property Committee presented a report from its sub-committee on the above subject and recommended its adoption. The report stated that on the 4th of June, 1867, immediately before the appoint- ment of the late hall-keeper, the salary of the office was fixed at £80, with £70 for expenses of cleaning the hall. £30 more was added when the Municipal Offices were built. The report went on to state : "The sub-committee are deeply impressed &nbsp; &nbsp; with the long and faithful services rendered to the Corporation in this and previous offices by Mr. Gazzard, extending over a period of nearly forty-seven years, and also with the highly satisfactory manner in which that part of the duties of the office which of necessity had to be performed by his wife, was dis- charged by Mrs. Gazzard. They consider that such services call for so...

FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
GRAY hose and low shoes are stylish with black gowns for the house. THE new color of the season is pearl-gray, and the new leather goods, comprising photo, frames, of all sizes, blotters, card cases, purses, and other knick-knacks, are all carried out in it, relieved with silver ornamentation. Lace frills at the wrists and throat are still the prevailing style, and stiff collars have disappeared. The lace imparts a soft, dainty effect to neck and hands, and it is to be hoped the fashion will linger with us for some time. Narrow love ribbons threaded in coarse embroidery needles are used for ornamentation upon fabrics not too closely woven. In place of this hand-work there are also narrow open gimps that are easily applied, but must be removed before laundering. Among the simpler jewelry, flower brooches are the most attractive and fashionable, the old garden flowers being in greatest demand. A prime favorite is the heartsease in tinted enamel ; and the dog-rose is particularly beaut...
NOVELTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
NOVELTIES. ONE large yellow diamond, surrounded by nine white stones, makes a handsome brooch. OLD miniatures are highly valued as lockets and brooches, mounted on gold filigree. BROOCHES have a tiny little gold chain attached to them, with a gold pin at the further end to ensure greater safety in their fastenings. LIZARD skin is adapted to all sorts of fancy articles now, such as card and letter cases, purses, blotters, etc., and is in much request among the fastidious few. FANS are made with a watch-case let in the handle. Watches themselves now represent the faces of old clocks. A very lovely fan is one which shows the twelve hours painted on the fan itself. STATIONERS are now selling pale apple-green note-paper with monogram and crest, in white Wedgwood stumping. It looks pretty and cool. There is a new envelope that is square, but has the flap from corner to corner, opening also up one side. A PRETTY table or window ornament is made of a common white potato. Choose a well-forme...

MEDICAL NOTES. &nbsp; A Doctor's Don'ts. Don't read in street cards or other jolting vehicles. Don't pick the teeth with pins or any other hard substance. Don't neglect any opportanity to insure a variety of food. Don't eat or drink hot and cold things immediately in succession. Don't pamper the appetite with such variety of food that may lead to excess. Don't read, write, or do any delicate work unless receiving the light from the left side. Don't direct special mental or physical energies to more than eight hour's work in each day. Don't keep the parlor dark unless you value your carpet more than your own and your children's health. Don't delude yourself into the belief that you are an exception as far as sleep is concerned ; the nominal average of sleep is eight hours. Don't endeavour to rest the mind by absolute inacti- vity ; let it seek its rest in work in other channels, and thus rest the tired part of the brain.

Woman Printers. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
Woman Printers. THE Boston Woman's Journal remarks re- garding the opposition to the employment of women in Sydney. "In Australia women now occupy about the same position in labor matters that they did in America twelve or fifteen years ago..... &nbsp; History repeats itself. The printer girls in Australia will hold their own, and in due time labor organisations there will learn, as they have already learned in America that to treat working women as equals is a "policy of self-protection."
THE NAME WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
THE NAME WOMAN. WOMAN is the name applied to the female gender of mankind; the opposite of man. To &nbsp; be a true woman should be the aim of evant &nbsp; girl; yet the word "woman" has almost id- appeared, and to call anyone by that good, oyri fashioned name, is to insult her. They w?ed all to be "ladies" now. A girl who earns her living by standing behind the counter of a store would be indignant if you called her a sales woman ; she is a "lady." The "forewoman" of the past has also disappeared, and the "lady'' has taken her place This is just as ridiculous as "wash-lady." Not but what there may be many a lady, who, by adverse circumstances, is compelled to stand behind a counter in a store, aud simply because she works for her living in this way, does not make her one whit less the lady. "Lady" is from an old Saxon word meaning "loaf-giver," or one who went about giving bread to the hungry. As only rich women were able to do this, the term was gradually applied t...
CORRESPONDENCE. BRISBANE STREET, RAGGED SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1889
CORRESPONDENCE. &nbsp; BRISBANE STREET, RAGGED SCHOOL. Dear Editress, On Tuesday, the 26th., by the kind invitation of Mr. Merreweather, we took the children of our four schools to Bondi ; 350 children and about 30 teachers and mem- bers of committee. The day was splendid, and the dear &nbsp; children thoroughly enjoyed it. Playing on the sands, getting soaked through with salt water, running races, and feasting on the fat of the land, made it a red letter day long to be remembered. Through a lady friend, (a member of thc Dawn Club) an invitation was most kindly sent from the Aquarium, but on seeing the exuberant spirits and over excitement of the children, it was decided to be safer (for the Aquar- ium) to keep them in the open air. The beautiful sky and sapphire sea, I have not time &nbsp; to describe, you must imagine. I will write at more length next time. &nbsp; Truly yours, KATE GENT.
