Reporting the Baby. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 August 1890
Reporting the Baby. THE life of a newspaper reporter is sometimes very embarrassing. To illustrate we will give the following, which is told of a young reporter who resides not a thousand miles from Griswold. He had been invited out to report a party where the home had recently been blessed with a new baby. Accompanied by his best girl he met his hostess at the door, and after the usual salutations asked after the baby's health. The lady was quite deaf and was suffering from the "grip." She thought he was asking about her cold, and told him she usually had one every winter ; this was the worst one she had ever had ; it kept her awake nights a good deal. Then noticing that the reporter was getting pale and nervous, she said she could tell by his looks that he was going to have the " grip " too, and asked him togo ir. and sit down,-Griswold American,

SIR CHARLES LILLEY ON WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 August 1890
SIR CHARLES LILLEY ON WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. Extract from a letter received by the Brisbane Wamali s Suffrage League from Sir Charle* Lilley : '1 am entirely in accord with the views of your Society on the subject of woman's suffrage, and 1 am no new convert. For over twenty years at least I have publicly stated my belief in woman's right to stand absolutely equal before the law, and in all matters political and social with man. I have never heard any worthy reason urged against this right. My principle has been to remove all artificial obstructions to the active life of man and woman alike, and leave each to achieve whatever good work is within his or her capacity. I have always held "Univer sal suffrage" as meaning manhood and womanhood suf frage. ... I wish you success, and if my sympathy and known opinion is of any value or aid to you it may be published at any of your meetings for the encouragement of those who are actively engaged in so good a cause."
A use for the Mirror. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 August 1890
A use for the Mirror. i A READER of" THE DAWN. " has found one use for a mirror to which she can see no objection, as the nser is too young to be injured by vanity. A very sociable little baby of seven mont/hs, who is especially fond of playmates more nearly his own age than his mamma happens to be, is fastened comfortably and securely in his ci binet chair, a favourite toy tied to the arm of the chair and placed in the tray, and baby, chair and all put upon the top of mamma's burean close to the glass, yet iu such a position that he can see mamma as well as the jolly little playfellow on the other side of the mirror. Such happy times as they have together, and such sweet smiles as mamma sees on two little faces, make her decide to keep at leasf one mirror in her home.

A Woman In It. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 August 1890
I A Woman In lt. They talk about a woman's sphere As though it had a limit ; There's not a place on earth or heaven, There's not a task to mankind given, There's not a blessing or a woe, There's not a whisper, yes or no, There's not a life, or death, or birth That has a feather's weight of worth, Without a woman in it.
THE BALLOT FOR WORKING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
ls JIJHE cause of woman's enfranchisement is a movement closely allied to that of Labour Reform, and should have the sympathies and assistance of all true friends of labour. It is impossible to raise labour as a whole without securing justice to working women. The low wages paid for female labonr, which are a dis grace to our civilization, continually tend to keep down the rate of pay for all classes of workers, as a very little reflection will show. If the wages of woman as a class are lo v, it follows that the wages of men who work at the same trades as can be pursued by female workers will not be much higher. Take for instance the large class of factory workers. Is it not a fact that in these branches where either men and women can be employed the prices paid for labour are extremely low ? If the employer can get a woman to work cheap and turn out as good work as a man he is not going to pay a man more merely on account of his sex. And the same holds good as regards printers, wai...
WOMEN AS ACADEMICIANS. FROM "HARPER'S BAZAAR." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
WOMEN AS ACADEMICIANS. i FROM "HARPER'S BAZAAR." CjEW things can have been written on the subject of female education of a mor© amusing sort than a very recent paragraph in a leading London newspaper, which was thought of sufficient importance to be cabled at once across the ocean, in which, apropos of the honours achieved by Miss Philippa Fawcett, it was ingenuously said that, on the whole, young women should be expected to do that kind of thing successfully, for they had nothing to divert them, and could fasten upon their work the attention which in the case of young men was dissipated over a world of affairs and pleasures, or words to that effect. What a brilliant intellect was that which in spired such a paragraph ! Women are able to come to the front intellectually because they are attending to the matter in hand ; because they are industrious, faithful, self-denying, honorable ; because they are not racing boats and horses, struggling with footballs, betting on prize-fights, s...
Women Compositors. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
tüomcn Compositors. TT will be remembered that when the Typo *? graphical Union lately decided by a large majority to refuse to admit women to their Union, one of the assertions made was to the effect that the trade was a dangerous and unhealthy one. Jn the Association's annual report the same idea was more strongly put and it was boldly announced that a high death rate amongst compositors was the result of the particularly debilitating and indeed fatal nature of the employment.. If there were any truth in these statements the employment of girls in the trade would clearly be wrong. To offer them employment or encourage them in the work would be merely helping them to wards disaster, bodily shipwreck, and an early grave. Though we had evidence enough to make us iielieve that these assertions were untruths of feeble constitution, we were not entirely easy on the subject and in order to come to a definite conclusion and be assured either that women might be encouraged to become compos...
HEALTH HINTS. For those who are well, as well as those who are not very well. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
JÍEALTH ^flNTS. 'or those W'JO are well, as well as those who are not very well. Be abstemious. Seek the sunlight. Exercise regularly. Breathe fresh air. Ke«p the head cool and the feet warm. Work is a good medicine (or an uneasy mind. Never begin a journey until breakfast has been eaten. Alcohol retards digestion, and also renders it complete. If you borrow something let that something be other than trouble. A free use of lemon juice and sugar will almost invari ably relieve a cough. Water weakens digestion and encourages the absorp tion for fatty and saccharine matters. Always keep the back, especially between the shoulder blades, well covered; also keep the chest well protected. If those who feel poorly in the spring-or at any other time of the year, in fact-would eat a lemon before breakfast every day fora week-with or without sugar.as they like-they would find it better than any medicine. Observe these rules, and cheat the doctor out of his fee and the patent medicine man out o...
A DIVIDED FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
A DIVIDED FÄFqiliJJ. BY A MOTHER. --*¡S£>~-S»Ba¿-. IjiTHY is it that, after the days of the enforced companionship of the nursery, so few chil dren find in their own fanuly the companionship and sympathy they need? Looking just among the families of our friends, of how many can we say this is not true? Last summer a gentlemen said to me, "I shall send my' two boys in the country this summer, and we can't go with them; but the trouble is we must look up two places, for they never get on together-you know brothers seldom do. " We should most of us admit the truth of his statement, but why is it true, and is there any remedy for such a deplor able state of affairs ? From a twenty years' record of a family of boys and girls, whose strongest bond is to each other and their father and mother, I would give^ some hints of a remedy which may be useful to younger parents who desire to give good gifts to their children, and amid the multitude of daily cares find it hard to see their way. As...
The Philharmonic Society's Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890
??rmi The Philharmonic Society's Concert. ÍXN Wednesday evening the 20th August, " after a lengthy dormant period, the Phil harmonic Society emerged into public notice with a conspicuously successful rendering of "Judus Maccabeus." It is understood that the Society had been waiting for the opening of the Centennial Hall to provide them with a suitable concert room, and we were glad to notice how much the effect of the concert was added to by being rendered in a fitting place. Signor Hazon conducted the oratorio, having under his baton a chorus of 396 members ana an orchestra of 60. The chorus comprised 124 sopranos, 57 contraltos, 49 tenors, and 66 basses, and the effect with which they rendered most of the choruses testified to the excellence of their training and the diligence of their re hearsals. The Society was aided by Mr. Best who presided at the organ, and the following ladies and gentlemen to whom fell the labours of the principal solos, viz : Miss Annis Montague, Mrs. Vand...
