Annual Report of the Sydney Ragged Schools. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890

Annual Report of the Sydney Ragged t Schools. WK have received the twenty-ninth annual report of Sydney Bagged Schools, and regret to see that the "bad times" have seriously affected their finances. The donations received during the year amounting to only £892, while the expenses kept at the lowest point reach £853. However, there are some good names on the Committee, and with them we have confidence that this Institution will not be allowed to lapse for want of funds. But in the meantime our readers can do much to strengthen the workers hands ; and we would strongly advise those charitably inclined, to visit at their earliest convenience these schools. Winter has fairly set in, and many of the unfortunate waifs attending these Institutions are but ill-prepared to face the next few months. Some are only half clad, and the pity of it ; in Sunny New South Wales some are only half fed, think of it! mothers of well nourished children. Visit the school when the teacher produces the baske...

SUNLIGHT AND HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890

«f. SUNLIGHT AQD HEALTH, fr BY H. REYNOLDS, M. D. Sunlight is about as essential to the healthful condition of human beings as it is to the growth and health of plants. Plants kept away from the sunlight soon become sickly looking. Everyone has noticed the pale and sickly appearance of potato-sprouts that have grown in the cellar away from the Ught. These sprouts brought into the sunlight soon begin to gain a better color, and after a time are transformed into healthful-looking potato vines. In like manner sunlight seems to be essential to the perfect assimilation and nutrition of the human system. An exposure to sunlight is necessary to insure the healthy performance of the functions of the skin and other organs in order that the highest state of health may be attained. Persons who live much in the dark present an unhealthy appearance. Children kept much of the time out of the sunlight are not only pale and sickly, but are imperfectly developed, and more subject to deformities. Man...

IT IS WELL TO REMEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 May 1890

I IT IS WELL TO REMEMBER. That old friends are best. That the tongue is not steel yet it cats. That the purest water runs from the hardest rock. That cheerfulness is the bright weather oí the heart, That sleep is the best stimulant, a nervine safe for ail to take. That it is better to be able to say No, than to be able to read Latin. That cold air is not necessarily pure, nor warm air necessarily impure, That a cheerful face is nearly as good for an invalid as healthy weather. That there are men whose friends are more to be pitied than their enemies. That advice is like castor oil, easy enough to give, but hard enough to take. That wealth may bring luxuries bat that luxuries do not always bring happiness. That grand temples are built of small stones and great lives made up ef trifling events. That nature is a rag merchant who works up every shred and part and end into new creations. That an open mind, an open hand and an open heart would everywhere find an open door. That it is not ...

FAMILY FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

BY MAUDE MEREDITH. f> GREAT deal has been said on the subject of the /H husband's pocket book and the wives' and daughters' pin money, and as reform seems to be wrought only by agitation and discussion, there will very likely be much more said in the future That the present arrange ment is not as it should be, I think every ene will admit, but just how to remedy the evil is a problem still unsolved. If every father could give his daughter, and every husband was required to settle on his wile, at her marriage-after the English fashion-a certain sum of money to be absolutely hers, and if custom would then dictate that she hold the principal using the interest only, the matter of small spending money would be solved for many women. There seems to be little likelihood of snch reform at present, although a change is certain to come sooner or later, and to that end we take the subject under consideration, i That a brother and sister should grow up side by side, J one as competent as th...

NURSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

^ NURSING. ^ RS ELIZAUETH KOUINSOX Scovn. gives the following valuable suggestions, which are well worth perusal by any person who has the care of the sick : " Nursing has of late years ri-en to the rank of a profession, and a very honorable one. Two years of earnest work is thought none too long to master its intricacies bj' the pupil nuvses in our training-schools. Surety, then, every woman should be willing to give a little time and a little trouble to learning the general principles that underlie the intelligent care of the sick, that when she is called upon to practice them, she maj- not be found wholly wanting in due preparation for what should be to her a labor of love. Trained nurses can be had in large cities ; and where expense need not be considered, one can be summoned from a distance, in case of necessity. Such aid is invaluable when it can be had, but in the vast majority of cases this is impossible, and then reliance must be placed upon the assis tance at hand. It is ...

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

USEFUL HINTS. ^ ALWAYS put a little soda in milk that is to be boiled, as an acid is formed by boiling. A FEW drops of extract of lavender will prevent paste from moulding or becoming sour. A TABLESPOONFUL of turpentine boiled with white clothes will greatly aid the whitening process. CHARCOAL (powdered) is a good sweetener of a stomach oppressed with flatulence from indigestion. BEST whalebones can be restored and used again by simply soaking in water a few hours, then drying them. To STONE raisins easily, pour boiling water over them and drain it off. This loosens them and they come out with ease. CAYENNE pepper blown into the cracks where ants congregate will drive them away. The same remedy is also good for mice. COVER house plants with newspapers before sweeping, also give them a little ammonia once a week in the water you put on them. A FLANNEL bag, stuffed w'th hops and wrung from hot vinegar, laid on the ear is ore of the quickest and surest cures for earache. To MEND small ...

Tell your Mother. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

Tell your Mother. fwonder how many girls tell their mothers everything! Not those "young ladies" who, going to and from school, smile, bow, and exchange notes and carte ile visites with young men, who make fun of them and their pictures, speaking in a way that would make their cheeks bum with shanie if they heard it. AH this, most incredulous and romantic young ladies, they will do, although they gaze at your fresh, young faces admiringly, and send or give you charming verses or bouquets. No matter what other girls may do, don't you do it. School-girl flirtation may end disas trously, as many a foolish and wretched young girl can tell you. Your yearning for some j one to love is a great need of a woman's heart. ! But here is a time îîê everything. Do not let the bloom and freshness of your heart be brushed off in silly flirtation. And above all, tell your mother everything. " Fun " in your dictionary would be indiscretion in hers. It would do no harm to look and see. Never be ashame...

BRINGING UP CHILDREN RATIONALLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

BRINGING UP CHILDREN RATIONALLY. It is as natural to a child to be happy as it is to a fish to swim, But for this they need a certain amount of 'letting alone.'' It is a great mistake for parents to hamper their children with fo dish restrictions. We pity the little B's, our next-door neighbour's children, from the bottom of our heart. There is a picket fence in front of the house, and they are scarcely allowed to go uear it, lest they should climb aud hurt themselves. They canuot climb a tree for the same reason. They may not ska'.e or swim, or have a gun. The consequence of this training is that their parents have made cowards of them all, with the exception of little Bessie, who is the most daring little mischief that ever wore a sun bonnet, and she has learned to be deceitful and plays all her mad pranks well out of sight of her parents' eyes. We caught her the other * day walking the railing of a bridge that crossed the track of a railroad a hundred feet below. The railing was ...

LOCAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890

LOCAL NOTES. I SIR Alfred Stephens' "Divorce Amendment Bill" is again on the order paper and will no doubt be passed by substantial majorities as it has been several times already. The Victorian act we hear is about- to be availed of by a number of women who have been many years deserted, and who now for the first time have the right to claim freedom. No doubt the deserting husbands will in some instances be surprised to find that modem justice allows worn- n also to drop their end of the chain. SINCE our last issue the Working and Fac tory Girls' Club have held their annual meeting. The balance sheet showed a small surplus and the report of work done during the year proved that the club is a real boon to those whom it is meant to serve. The total attendance of girls at the rooms had been 1439 for the year, and 176 women had paid for board and lodging, some making the 'club a permanent home. IN the early part of the month a short-lived discussion on the suffrage question took place ...
