THE MOTHER'S PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
THE MOTHER'S PARLIAMENT. DIRT PIES:-I want to add my plea for the children in favor of " dirt pies. " " Dirt pies " doesn't mean simply dirt pies ; it means making gardens and mountains and tunnels, and having tea-parties with a variety of goodies, and playing store, and in fact giving the most ample scope to the baby imagination and passing long, delightful summer hours in the most diverting, innocent and health-giving of amusements. 1 always feel so sorry for the poor little one whose mother thinks so much of his clothes that she " draws the line at dirt pies " As for causing work, if one can't afford much washing, make the little ones dark " digging aprons " or dresses that can he donned or doffed in a minute, and you will have less work than in listening to their fret ting and quarrelling, and trying to provide other employments for them. As for me, I never feel any safer about them as regards both health and morals than when, dressed in their digging costumes and armed with sho...

Look Out, Not In. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
-sr Look Out, Not In. BY F. B. ABBE. Remain not folded in thy pleasant joys, Within the narrow circle of thy walls, Content if thine are blessed. Cold is thy fire If on thy hearthstone only ; and thy bread Bitter, which feeds alone thy selfish blood ; Thy house a prison, if it hold thy world, Thy heaven a fiction.
FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
I - FARM NOTES. - PINTADOS OR GUIKEAFOWLS.-No bird in the fowl-yard will catch and eat half as many inseots as a Pintado. They are better than a watchdog, because no stranger can come by day or night without a warning being given by these watchful birds. Their flesh is dark, and is game; their eggs cannot be excelled in flavour by plover, quail, pheasant, or bantam hen. The birds are perfectly hardy, and will get their own living. Their faults are that they are very noisy ; that they go wild if not looked after ; that they kill chicks of other poultry ; and that they steal their nests. The hen bird always makes a fuss when she lays, and it is therefore easy to find the nest. They pair as a rule, and therefore it is necessary to keep as many male birds as hens. Guinea fowls would be handy where the curculio is about. Sirnifo hens must have attention. One is liable to forget that warm weather brings lice. A clean nest is the first requisite. If the nest box is well oiled with kerosene...

Two Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
Two Women. I know two women ; and one is chaste And cold as the snows on a winter waste ; Stainless ever, in act and thought, (As a man born dumb, in speech errs not. ) But she has malice toward her kind A cruel tongue and a jealous mind. Void of pity, and full of greed, She judges the world by her narrow creed. A brewer of quarrels, a breeder of hate, Yet she holds the key to "Society's" gate. The other woman, with a heart of flame, Went mad for a love that marred her name ; And out of the grave of her murdered faith She rose like a soul that had passed thro' death. Her aim is noble, her pity so broad, It covers the world like the mercy oi God. A healer of discord, a soother of woes, Peaee follows her footsteps wherever she goes. The worthier life of the two, no doubt ; AnA tint ttQn/ri/*tvil lnrkfl h*»r nut. Ella Wkttler Wilcox.
HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
HEALTH. POISON IN THE BREAJH.-The poisonous nature of the air exhaled from the lungs has been proved by Dr. Brown-Sequard. His discovery is-First, that the air exhaled nearly always contains ammonia; secondly, this air contains, in very minute quantities, organic matter which, if not already putrified on leaving the broncho pulmonary exhalations is txtremely noxious. He injected a quantity of liquid produced by condensation of exhaled air of a dog into the carotid artery of a strong, healthy rabbit ; this was followed by arrest of heart and lung action, and the animal died within a minute. It is believed that exhaled air contains minute quanti ties of poisonous particles of very energetic action when concentrated.

A TENEMENT HOUSE GUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 July 1890
YjfN a decent tenement-house on the west side of AjK New York City lives Mrs. McGinnis, and she : ¡eírns her bread over a washtub. : * She had just put her washing into the boiler and sat down to take an " aisy breath or two, " when she saw a curious apparition in her doorway. It was the figure of an old man, but so bent, so thin, so tattered, so shaggy and unshorn, that for an instant Mrs. McGinnis thought she confronted something that was not of flesh and blood. He stood in an attitude of respectful solicitation, holding the remnant of a hat in his hand, and his dim eyes roved around the room as though he expected to see something, and was disappointed beoause it was not there. " And is it anything ye wahnt of me, me gude man ? " asked Mrs. McGinnis, rallying from her surprise. The old man tried to speak, but seemed dazed, and the words he would have said died in inarticulate s und s upon his lips. Then Mrs. McGinnis saw that he was too weak to talk, and she led him in and sat him...
