LIVE IN PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
LIVE IN PEACE. Fretting, worrying, fault-finding, borrowing trouble, giving away to temper, and holding long, bitter grudges-all these things affect the liver, poison the blood, enlarge the spleen, carve ugly lines on the face, and shorten life. Try to be half as wise as that little creature, the bee, who takes all the honey she can find! and leaves the poisons to themselves. -Mrs. E, H. Leland.
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
A WOMAN'S Press Club of New York City has been organised. The idea is to pro vide a social meeting-place for the literary and journalistic women of that city. On one afternoon of each week tea will be served, and subjects of general interest to women will be informally discussed. The entrance fee is £i, with a small monthly assessment. Mrs. J. C. Croly has been chosen President ; Mrs. Sara I. Lippincot and Mrs. Mary E. Bryan, vice-presidents ; Miss Laura Baylass, corresponding secre tary, and Mrs. M. M. Merrill, recording secretary. A home for the club will soon be decided upon. SISTKB IBKNE, of New York, has perhaps the largest existing family of children. Twenty Tears ago last October, in a dreary storm, she hung out a wicker basket at the door of her house. That night a nameless baby was laid ' within it, to be tenderly cared for by the gentle Sister of Charity. Next night came another, and again another ; and however late the hour or faint the baby's cry, the watching Sister wos...
MAKING HOME CHEERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
-Mc MMIM pejklE CHEERFUL. BY LAURA E. LYMAN We are so influenced by our surroundings i that it is very desirable they should be as pleasant as possible, It is not always in the Ííower of the house-mother to live in the ocality she prefers, or to change its features to suit her tastes ; but she may so furnish and arrange the interior of her house that it shall be charming and restful. The charm of a cozy home resides inherently in the mistress, and not in what the furnisher and upholsterer can do to make a house comfortable. If fine mirrors, and velvet carpets, and plush covered furniture, and elegant carvings, made happy homes, what blessedness would reside in a furniture store ! Not till loved faces have been reflected m a mirror is it made at all precious to us ; not till footsteps for which we fondly listen have pressed the carpet is its inanimate web dear to us ; not till chairs and sofas have been consecrated by holding the forms of our friends do these soulless objects, howeve...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
CHAPTER II. " AND did you really think it could make the I slightest difference to my love that you are a clerk in ! some ironworks earning an hone-t living, instead of a fine young gentleman improving his manners at leisure in New Zealand ? " It was a bonny, saucy face jbats looked up to. Columbus, beneath a brown fur hat-even the face of Eva Bishop, who had hurried her father home in hot haste from Russia, where, quite by accident, news of the Mardell's trouble had reached her a few weeks on in the New Year, Columbus felt his eyes growing a little dim, but he held up his head proudly, and said " Your father may object to your being engaged to a man with such poor prospects. Besides my whole social position has altered since I dared to tell you I loved you. T/u-n I was a country gentleman of independent means ; note I am a poor clerk at a hundred and thirty a year, with a chance, if I am immaculate in conduct, of rising in ten years to four hundred. Why, Eva, I believe your father ...
AUNT CORA'S WILL. A TALE OF TWO CHRISTMAS DAYS. CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
"ík WT WW Tllhh & A TALE OF TWO CHRISTMAS DAYS. CONTINUED. BY L 0EMI8T0N CHANT. f' wa» Aunt Cora's lawyer. Stephen Wardlaw was a middle-aged man of commanding presence, and the Mardell family were much attached to him ; but at present relationship was rather strained, and Columbus stood still when he approached, hardly knowing whether to be hostile or friendly. They told me I should probably meet you along here, " said Mr. Wardlaw kindly, "and as I have to drive over to Kempfield, I-would not waste time, but have come to meet you. " " It is very kind of you to be so prompt, " said Columbus. " Tou returned last night I hear, " continued the lawyer, " I am afraid it was a very different home coming from what you expected. " " Are you at all aware of the straits in which we are at present ? " asked Columbus brusquely. After all he could not help including Mr. Wardlaw in his resentment .against Aunt Cora. " Allow me to say that you ought not to be in any straits, " replied the o...
A NIGHT WATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
A NIGHT WATCH. " Is it not morning yet ? " From side to side The sick girl tossed, hot-browed and heavy eyed, And moaned with feverish breath when I replied, " It is not morning yet. " "Is it not morning yet ?" O leaden hours, How slow they move ! The night more darkly lowers, Cold on the wan leaves strike the sudden showers ! " It is not morning yet. " " Is it not morning yet ? " The clock lick, on, The sands fall slow ; not half the night is gone ; Again I answer to that restless moan "It is not morning yet. " Is it not morning yet? " With tender care I bathe her brow and smooth her damp fair hair, And try to soothe her with soft words of prayer. " it is not morning yet. " " It is not morning yet ? " If she could sleep, If those tired lids those burning eyes could keep 1 God knows the thorns are sharp, the road is steep ! " It is not morning yet. " Is it not morning yet ? " " 'Tis coming dear. " And while I speak, the shadows press more near, And all the room grows colder with my ...
A NOVEMBER DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
I A NOVEMBER DAY. A damp gray blanket hides the mountain's blue, The day is sad and long ; The east wind blows no hint of sunshine through, And hushed the wild birds song. Brown leaves are prest against the pavement's wet, O'er which with cumbrous tread The coal man, with his load on shoulder set, Goes to and from his shed. Ah, doleful noises, mist, and falling leaves, I tum me from the pane ; Her passing sceptre sobbing Fall bereaves, And Winter wails again. Blaze thou ! and warm my saddened heart, O fire, Light up the shadowy room ; With books, and friends, and logs piled high and higher, Let old kim? Winter come. TONK L. JON KS.

^MSPlTH the present issue Th* Dawn * ^KaS» starts uP°n its third year. It is .jrcj -now*two years since, with many * Ww misgivings, we submitted our first - $ . issue to a critical public, and f noue were more surprised than ourselves, j» at tlie generous notice we received from 5 our brothers of the press. Since then, we have enjoyed hearty and substantial sup- ' port from readers of both sexes, and though* ostensibly catering for women, we undoubtedly owe much of our success to men. This liberal support we appreciate L the more from the fact that similar jour nals published in England and America own, Uiat after twenty years of hard struggling, their efforts are just beginning * to be self-supporting, while many are still compelled to ask extra monetary help -. Jj from their readers. This, happily has not ç been our experience ; we have had fair . play and know that if present support .Y* Jails we shall have none but ourselves to £ thank for it. . .

As Sorrowing—Not Without Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
As Sorrowing-Not Without Hope. Tread softly ! For a little child lies dead, His voice is hushed-his step once light and free, Is heard no more-so, softly speak and tread, For all things should be hushed in sympathy. His glance that was the gayest of the gay Has lost its light. Those active restless limbs Are strangely still,-no more will they obey The busy brain, once bright with endless whims. He was among us only yesterday He smiled-he spoke-the laughing words he said, Ring in our ears, though he has passed away, And. we can scarcely feel that he is dead. But ah 1 The still set face so waxen pale,- [thro' Closed eyes,-sealed lips, with no breath passing That icy chill, at which the heart-strings quail ' * These join in bearing witness all too true. He held a place in many a loving heart, And holds it still in fond security, For life, not love, has fled, and set apart One spot is sacred to his memory. God gave, and He has taken-may His name Be blessed for ever, even though He slay ...

Now And Afterward. ' Two hands upon the breast and labour is past. - RusBian Proverb. * Two hands upon the breast, And labour's done ; Two pale feet crossed in rest, The race is won ; Two eyes with coin-weights shut, And all tears cease ; Two lips where grief is mute, Anger at peace' So pray we oftentimes, mourning our lot, God in his kindness answereth not. ' Two hands to work addrest Aye for his praise ; Two feet that never rest Walking His ways ; Two eyes that look above, Through all their tears ; Two lips still breathing love, Nor wrath, nor fears ;' So pray we afterward, low on our knees ; Pardon those erring prayers ! Father, hear these :

WOMEN AND MEN. FROM " HARPER'S BAZAR." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
FROM " HARPER'S BAZAR." JyljiTHE remarkable thing in the recent rapid transit ot a young lady round the globe is not so much that she accomplished the feat in a week less than the famous hero of Jules Verne, but that she came back, according to the newspapers, in the same dark blue cloth suit in which she set forth, and with a hand-bag no larger. These appointments were in fact the key to her success : if'her love of dress had been stronger, her story had been longer. Madame Ida Pfeiffer, the eminent woman traveller of forty years ago, used to say that any other woman might travel as widely and persistently as she did, by simply making up her mind to go without a bandbox. But the journey of life is a much more serious thing than a trip round the planet ; it takes seventy-two years instead of seventy-two days ; and it demands, equally with the briefer journey, that one should travel with but little baggage, il one would travel in earnest. And now especially, when women are re solved ...
FARM & GARDEN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
FARM & GARDEN NOTES* Some people think a farm animal is like a postage-stamp-no good until licked. They are sadly mistaken. . » * * . The farm-horse, having only light labor, and not much of that, during the winter, should have less grain and more roughness than during the summer. » . « » The man that puts iron bits in his horses' mouth in very cold weather, without first warming the bits, has altogether too much of the savage in his composition. . « « » WOOLLY BLIGHT. -The American blight has been driven from apple trees by digging away the soil in a circle of five or six feet around the stem to the depth of nearly a foot-down to the rood ; then putting on a good lot of fresh stable manure. The earth was then restored, and the aphis fled from roots and branches. We fancy sulphate of ammonia would have an equally good effect; bot great care must be taken not to apply too strong a dose. . * * * Thoa who have never reared ducks do not know that ducklings grow much faster than ...

THE EAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890
! THE EAR. FBW people realise what a wonderfuly delicto structure the human ear really is. That which we ordinarily designate so is, after all, only the mere outer porch of a series of passages, which, like the lobbies of a great building, lead from the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are full of liquid, and their membranes are stretched like parchment curtains across the corridor at different places, and can be thrown into a vibration or made to tremble like the head of a drum or as the surface of a tambourine does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of very small bones extends, which serves to tighten or relax these membranes and so communicate vibration to them. In the innermost place of all, a row of white threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point to which the tremblings or thrillings reach and pass into the brain. A wonderful piece of mechanism indee...
