A Lady Lavender Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
A Lady Lavender Farmer. Now that the fashion for lavender water has again revived, it is interesting to learn that for many years past Miss Sprules has managed a successful distillery in Surrey. Her father kept fe large lavender farm at Wallington, and Miss Sprules was early initiated into the business. She finds that the trade pays fairly well. Among her customer» ure the Queen and the Princess of Wales The Queen does not like scent herself, but she uses Miss Sptules' lavender water for fumigating and presents it to visitors She recently sent some handsome bottles of lavender water to the Queen of Italy.
TOO MUCH WHITE BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
TOO MUCH WHITE BREAD. Bread has been called the staff of life, and yet this figure of speech, in view of the kind of bread that most persons eat, is a decided mis nomer. The ordinary white flour, which forms the basis of so much food that is eaten, is prin cipally a starch compound, and contains only three of the fifteen elements that go to compose the body, namely, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. To prove that white flour does not meet the requirements of the body, Magendie gave it wholly to a number of dogs, and at the end of 40 days they died. Others to whom he gave the wheat meal, at the end of this time were in first class condition. More than half of the children under twelve years of age have decayed teeth, owing to the insufficient supply of the required mineral ingredients, and this deficiency is caused as a rule by eating white bread. Dyspepsia, constipation, loss of nerve power, and many other diseases are produced by improper feed ing. Sulphur is required for the growth of...
POPULAR BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
POPULAR BLUNDERS. Ws should all endeavour to preserve the purity and correctness of our mother tongue, and to that end when anyone notices that errors, however small, are or appear to be coming into general use, that one does well to call attention to them. I will make only a few remarks on this subject, hoping that others will continue it. ' The use of a or an before h aspirated seems a sad stumbling block, even to journalists who are constantly writing. How often in newspapers do we see "a hotel," which often compels us to read "a hottle," and in the Science Primer Introductory, p. 67, there is "a hypothesis." The rule is that an must be used before h aspirated when the accent is on the second syllable. Thus we must say an hotel, an hypothesis ; but, a hungry boy, a hundred years ago. Yet this last is printed no fewer than twelve times an hundred as if the accent were on dred and not on hun, in Nelson's Royal Story Book of English History for St. Ill, . mi, pp. 175, 176, 177.

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
IT would be interesting to know how many ideas of women have been appropriated by men to rule their (the men's) everlasting fame. Who needs the ballot most, the strong or the weak ? If woman is the weaker sex, for that very reason she needs the ballot for her own protection. If woman cannot fight, for that very reason she should vote. THE women of Brisbane are forming a Woman's Suffrage League, and have already held their preliminary meeting for the purpose of organisation, at which universal sympathy with the movement was evinced. Another meeting is arranged for an early date. The women are very much in earnest and are sanguine of success, which we heartily wish them. MES. LAWSON, president of the Woman's Suffrage Society in Sydney intends visiting Brisbane during the month and hopes to aid the establishment of the Suffrage Society in that city. MRS BKKSLT, whose death took place recently, wrote the words of "The Wearin' of the Green." She was the wife of Professor E. S, Beesly and...
WHAT I KNOW ABOUT LAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
I WHAT I KNOW ABOUT LAMPS. HARRIET P. RICHARDSON. It happened that in going into the country every summer the care of the lamps fell to me, and after several years' experience in giving light to the family, it struck me that a few hints upon the subject might be acceptable to others. If there is only one servant to assist as maid-of all-work, the kerosene lamps will suffer for want of proper and intelligent care. New lamps do very well, and, if filled daily, the light will be satisfactory for some time. Unfortunately, lamps like other household conveniences, feel the effects of time and constant use The brass burners become encrusted with oil, which'bas burnt black; the little perforations, so important for just the right circulation of air, are filled with dust, and the lamps begin to give a dim light and to smell very unpleasantly. The first idea always is, that the oil is not so good as formerly ; but a little observation will disclose where the trouble is, namely, in the burners...
FORETHOUGHT OF FAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
FORETHOUGHT OF FAMILIES. The wife-it was a typical case-made the fire, both winter and summer ; in cold weather th« husband remained in bed till the room be came warm ; and I do not believe there was a single load of good wood taken to the house in five years ; principally green timber, said to " last longer,'' and water-soaked old rails ; and yet the man was a good citizen, as the world goes, a leading member of the church, active in good works, prominent in society ; the whole trouble was carelessness, thoughtlessness, lack in early training. And that brings us to the cure of many of these ills. Mothers, you have it in your power to very materially help the next generation of wives and mothers. Will you do it ? In my father's family the three eldest were boys, and we were all taught to be self-helpful and to help mother. Each boy when old enough- eight or nine years-must take proper care of his clothes ; his " Sunday suit" (country boys usually have such a one for special occasion...
BRISBANE STREET RAGGED SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
BRISBANE STREET RAGGED SCHOOL. ON Wednesday 18th June, the pupils of the | Brisbane-street Bagged school, met at the invi tation of several ladies and gentlemen, to par take of their annual feast, and to secure the numerous pretty and well selected gifts supplied by Mr. H. C. Dangar and daughters, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Johnson. The distribution took quite an hour as there were so many presenta tionstobe dealt with, three desks on which were flags were improvised as stalls upon which tops, balls, knives, bats, work-boxes and dolls were heaped in profusion, and it is needless to say, how happy for the time being were the little waifs, despite their rags, sores and dirt. Not withstanding the children's happiness it could not fail to be, to those who read between the lines, a sorrowful sight calculated to make the beholder wonder and wish that for the good of his country such sights might cease to be. The Eev. Southley opened with prayer and gave the children a short address, and the atte...
THE LEGAL LINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
-;ff ^PK liK^h UNK. jfj TYY)NA CAIRD and her disciples have whis 6 pered in the ears of those women whose sufferings have set them pondering, that the troubles which so often and so soon follow marriage are due to the marriage bond ; to the practicably inseparable tie ; the legal link. No bond, say they, then no illtreatment ; love that lasts, not languishes ; at least the kindness of a friend not the aut ocracy of a legal master. Now again in the May number of the Wettmiiuur Heview Jeannie Lockett writes "It is a well attested fact that in cases amongst the poorer classes where people enter into marital re lations not legally binding, th* women aa a general rule, . reeeiv« better treatment than is the case in a similar grade of society where the tie is a legalised one. 'Ah I its easy to see tbe poor thing is his lawful wife else he would not dare treat her so', is an expression of opinion not uncommon in such communities." It is not only in the poorer classes that women have been d...

Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
Woman. A queen in her beautiful garments, She stands on the ramparts to-day. To herald the dawn, and the cerements Of her past are folded away. She stands with the prophets and sages ; She speaks, and her tongue is a flame Leaping forth from fires which for ages Have smouldered in silence and shame. Her feet have come up from the valleys, They are climbing the mountains of light, At her call the world 'rouses and rallies, Bearing arms in the battle of right. She treads on the serpent that stung her And grinds out its life 'neath her heel ; She grapples with sorrows that wrung her, Converting her woe into weal. Made strong through her slaughtered affection She comes, with her sons by her side, An angel ot power and protection, The beacon light, leader and guide. No longer a timorous being, To cringe, and to cry 'neath the rod. But quick to divine and far-seeing, She hastens the purpose of Ged.
POET'S PAGE. A Girl Again. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
A Girl Again. BY ADDIE FUNK. "A girl again !" Though breathed in lowest key The mother overhears, turns wearily Upon her snowy pillow, heaves a sigh, And puts another faded ho pe-bloom by, The while a face bends in anxiety. "Dear one, the lass as precious is to me As were a son, as are our other three. Art not content that for our love shall try A girl again ?" "Mistake me not, 'tis that I must foresee For her, shall she fulfil her destiny, All woman's pains and trials. That is why The moment's pang." Then with an upward, sly, Fond glance at him : "Besides, I would not be A girl again."
How to Walk Upstairs. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
How to Walk Upstairs. A professional athlete says that there is a knack in climbing stairs easily. To throw the body forward, bending at the hips, more than doubles the work. The weight of the body is a load that the muscles of t'_e legs and back must carry, and they can carry it easiest if the centre of gravity is kept directly above. Sending forward imposes on the muscles of the trunk the unnecessary task of keeping the load from pitching forward, and is like carry ing it at arms length, instead of on the shoulder, or on the head, as many Europeans carry burdens. The gentleman gives thia advice to stair climbers : "Do not lean forward ; do not hurry ; do not spring from stair to stair. Step firmly, leisurely, and stand
Over-worked Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
Over-worked Women. Nothing is more thoroughly mistaken than the idea that a woman fulfils her duty hy doing an amount of work that is far beyond her strength. She not only does not fulfil her duty, but she most singularly fails in it ; and the fai lure is truly deplorable. There can be no sadder sight than that of a broken-down, over worked wife and mother-a woman who is tired all her life. The woman who spends her life in unneces sary labor is by this very labor unfitted for the higher duties of home. She should be the haven of rest to which both children and hus band turn for peace and refreshment. She should be the careful, intelligent adviser and guide of the one, and the tender confidante and helpmeet of the other, i To the overworked . woman this green old age is out of the ques tion. Her disposition is often ruined, her temper soured, her very nature changed by the burden which, too heavy to carry, is only dragged along. Even her affections are blunted and she becomes merely ...
Don'ts for the Sick Room. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
' Don'ts for the Sick Room. "MEDICAL CLASSICS" : Don't light a sick room at night by means of a jet of gas burning low ; nothing impoverishes the air sooner. Use sperm candles or tapers which burn in sperm oil. Don't allow offensive matters to remain ; in cases of emergency where these cannot be at once ? removed wring a heavy cloth, for instance, like Turkish towelling, out of cold water, use it as a cover, placing over this ordinary paper. Such means prevent the escape of odour or infection. Don't forget to have a few beans of coffee bandy, for this serves as a deodorizer if burnt on coals or paper. Bits of charcoal placed around are useful in absorbing gases and other im purities. Don't have the temperature of a sick room much over sixty degrees ; seventy degrees are allowable, but not advisable. Don't permit currents of air to blow upon the patient. An open fireplace is an excellent meaus of ventilation. The current may be tested by barning a piece of paper in front. Don't give ...

Higher Education for Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
Higher Education for Women. I DESIRE to make an appeal to the readers of the " Dawn" on behalf of the " College for women" a sub ject which commands the interest of all thinking women. Women have been admitted to the University since 1881-the numbers who have taken advantage of this privilege has increased year by year. There are now 47 attending lectures, twenty more than last year, 138 passed the recent examination. They have competed on equal terms with men and many have gained degrees and honours and yet again they have not competed on an equality with men because they have had the great disadvantage in having no College such as the men have to live in, where they may quietly study. Imagine the difficulties encountered by those girls who have had to pursue their studies in a noisy lodging. Imagine their difficulties in travelling to and from the University. Some who have already undergone these and other hardships have distinguished themselves in spite of every drawback. Ask tho...
