Emmeline was hem-stitching a bureau scarf, but she had laid it down to look out. A little old woman in a black calico dress, a rusty black shawl, and an old straw bonnet was coming down the country road. Her scanty skirts flapped in the wind, and Uer face was purple with the cold. The bare hands holding the shawl together were purple too. She nodded to Emmeline when she reached the gate, hut did not smile. Her stiff fingers fumbled with the latch of the gate some i ime before she could get it open, and the old shawl blew away from i.er bent shoulders; but she did not...
HOME REMEDIES [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
M ÇOÏÏJE POEMES BY ERNESTINE DAVIS. "T never hean! of hot water as a medicine, until I saw 1 your previous article said a friend to me recently. "It is so very simple I remembered it the next time my stomach felt 'uncomfortable, and drank some. Really, I felt be.ter, and I shall recommend it to my friends." This has encouraged me to speak a little farther of the virtues of hot water, and home remedies in general. In case of sore throat, a garble of hot water, as hot as the throat will tolerate, is an excellent remedy, especially when there is inflamation or irritation of the membrane at the bick. In acute cases this is said to sometimes give immediate relief. In chronic, long standing throat troubles-catarrh of throat-it will benefit, if persevered in. One physician says as much as one half pint should be used at a time, but my rule has been to use until the throat is tired. If the quantity is less, repeat oftener, All cases of water treatment must be persevered in to win. A gargle ...

BE MODEST AND LADYLIKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
I BE MODEST AND LADYLIKE. IT is the duty of every woman to be a true lady. Brazen boldness is a thing which girls cannot afford t > practice. Wildness of manner and an open defiance of all those wholesome laws which have made woman's name illus trious both hi sacred and profane history from the beginning of time, are no more becoming to the girls and "young ladies,'' so-called, than in angels. Delicacy is an innate quality of the female heart, which, when lost, can never hi regained. No heart can restore to the grape its bloom or its sweetness to the taste when the mildews of the night have once settled down upon the vine. Familiarity without love, without confidence, without regard to the common rules of etiquette even, is destructive of all that makes woman exalting and ennobling. The world is wide, these things are small. They may be nothing, but they're all.
What a Wise Maiden Will Keep on Her Toilet Table [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
What a Wise Maiden Will Keep on Her Toilet Table Tho Family Doctor says : A sensible girl will not keep a lot of cosmetics or drugs on her toilet table, but there are a few articles she should always have in a convenient place. She should have an array of class stopped bottles, containing ' alcohol, alum, borax, ammonia, and glycerine or vaseline A little camphor and water may be used as a wash for the mouth and throat if the breath is not sweet. Powdered alum applied to a fever sore will prevent it from becoming very unsightly and noticeable. Insect stings or eruptions on the skin are removed by alcohol. A few grains of alum in tepid water will relieve people whose hands perspire very freely, rendering them unpleasantly moist. A few drops of sulp huric acid in the water are also beneficial for this purpose, and are also desirable for those whose feet perspire freely. We should always recommend care in thc use of scented soap ; in many cases the perfume is simply a disguise for poor...
WOMAN'S SPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
WOMAN'S SPHERE. WHEN Edison had given two weeks of his valuable time to going up and down the New York elevated railroad, trying to discover what caused its noise, and a cure for it, be gave up the task. Then a little wocan took it. She rode on the cars three days, was denied a place on the rear platform, laughed at for her curiosity, and politely snubbed by conductors and passen ger*.

Killed by Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
Killed by Tobacco. A BOY recently died at the age of eleven years, whose physician says he was killed by cigarette-smoking. " Killed by tobacco " might be appropriately engraved upon many a tombstone of old and young. Every such death is a disgrace to our boasted Christian civilization. When shall we become truly civilized. In numerous countries, the evil effects of tobacco-using by boys has been recognized sufficiently to induce the civil authorities to enact laws prohibiting its sale to, and use by young boys. It is made a misdemeanor for boys under the age of fifteen to smoke or use tobacco in any form. If a lad under this age is found upon the street smoking, he is an promptly arrested and sent to the police jrtation, as though he had been caught stealing. There is a very prevalent fashion of enforcing we laws in republican Switzerland.
HEALTH AND MORALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
,i? I>K/Ü;T1) /IPI) Il)l)Í^IiS. Ïj;T is asserted that many a poor fellow has i swung from tho gallows simply because the judge happened to have a fit of indigestion. "Whether this be true or not, any one who lias visited a penitentiaiy must have been convinced that mai y a man has been sent to State-prison who ought to have been sent to the hospital. Old Dr. Abernethy used to say, " Every sick man is a rascal. " We think the old doctor was rather hard on the sick man nevertheless, an extended experience with sick people has convinced us that, on the whole, it is easier for a well man to be good, or decent, or pious, than for a sick man. Good health does not always go with good morals, but good morals are certainly more apt to be associated with good health than the contrary. A vast amount of harm grows out of the notion, which has been extensively cultivated by a certain spec-its of school books, that a person must be sickly to be good. Some years ago the writer saw in a European...

THAT NONSENSICAL IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 June 1890
THAT NONSENSICAL IDEA &nbsp; &nbsp; IAM utterly opposed to this nonsensical idea of giving women votes,'' said one of the Members of Parliament com &nbsp; &nbsp; menting on the proposed Electoral &nbsp; Bill. So are we opposed to it if it is &nbsp; nonsensical, but as so many reforms &nbsp; aud discoveries of incalculable value have at first sight been declared idiotic and absurd, we may as well look at the foun dation facts and see if this proposed Bill contain the essence of foolishness or whether it does, as Some claim, bring us as near to pure justice and absolute freedom as any human law has yet approached. We are a community of men arid women living in one corner of the globe which we have marked off as our own, and since the business of so many people cannot be man aged by all, we select a hundred and fifty men to iriake laws for us and manage our public offices. The laws made by these deputies are binding on women as we...
FLIRTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
FLIRTS. THE following portrayal by an eminent pul pit orator, of the wickedness of flirtation, i« none too severe in its denunciations: - "It seems to me that the world ought to cast out from business credit and from good neighbourhoods those who boast of the num ber of hearts they have won, as the Indian boasts of the number of scalps he has takeu. If a man will lie to a woman, and if a woman will lie to a man about so important a matter as that of a life-time's welfare, they will lie about a bill of goods, and lie about finances, and lie about anything. Society to-day is brimful of gallants, and man-milliners, and carpet knights, and coquettes, and those most G-od-f orsaken of all wretches-flirts. And they go about in drawing-rooms and in the parlors of watering places, simpering, and bowing and, scraping, and whispering, and then return to the club-rooms, if they be men, or to their special gatherings, if they be women, to chatter and giggle over what was said to them in con fide...
