HOME ITEMS OF INTEREST. Somewhat Carlessly Str[?]ng Together. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

fiona JTEMS OF INTEREST, Somewhat Carlessly Strang Together. Moths do not eat through paper. Hot wood ashes applied to a stove when it is cold will remove grease. Tea should never be made in a tin pot. The tannin works on the tin and makes a poison. Glass kept wet with camphor dissolved in spirits of turpentine may be cut with metallic tools. Cooking utensils, after being washed, should be rinsed in clean waler and wiped out with a clean dry cloth. Water that has stood in a lead pipe over night is unfit for cooking or drinking purposes. Let it run lor two or three minutes before being used. In cleaning paint obstinate spots that will not wash off with soap and water will often yield to a gentle rubbing with a damp cloth dipped in soda. Vinegar or yeast are kept best in glass vessels. If placed in stone crocks or jugs their acid attacks the glazing, which is considered poisonous.

WOMEN WARDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

- >*? WOMEN WARDERS. THE following is the text of a petition pre sented to the Colonial Secretary of Queensland praying for the appointment of women warders at the police cells. SIR,-Wc, the undersigned women ot Queensland, pray the Colonial Secretary, that steps be taken for the appointment of women warders in all Police Cells of the Colony in which women are confined prior to their appearance before a Magistrate. The instalment of such woman warder is especially necessary in the case of the Brisbane Police Cells, as, not only the women taken in charge by the Police in North Brisbane are taken there, but those taken in South Brisbane also. The Petitioners desire to lay before the Colonial Secretary, and to respectfully draw his attention to the fact, that it is a sin against the dignity of womanhood, to expose the victims of drunkenness to the handling and watch of men, at a time, when, from the nature of their offence, they are unconscious, and senseless ; and they pray that, i...

WOMAN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

.... -J^ WOMAN'S WORK. The San Francisco Call suggests a society for lighten ing the burdens of women who have houses co keep, and says :-"Does the shoemaker try to lighten woman's work by sewing the buttons on honestly, or "tipping" the footwear with honest leather? Does the tailor who makes the pants with his boasted benevolence of "double knees" ever put them on the right place or large enough? Does the carpenter ever put the nails and hooks where a medium-sized woman, let alone a child, can reach them ? Is there ever but the fewest possible shelves that a woman can reach without standing on a chair, at the risk of breaking her back ? It is a very little thing to have no water-back to a stove, so a man thinks ; but to a wife-of all-work it is-well there is no word strong enough to express the trouble it causes. A sink on a level, with cold water, is not an easy thing to keep clean. Why not make a little decline ? Also bring the zinc over the edges somewhat. The continued settling...

A Bit of Lay Preaching. LYDIA JACKSON LAMPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

* A Bi* of Laß Preaching. * LYDIA JACKSON I.AMI'HERE. '?-»V JE were the only occupants of the hotel parlor s-s-° in a small town of Southern Michigan, awaiting trains which were to bear us in T different directions, and we talked together as strangers will, idly, inconsequently, with no thought of aught more than to pass the time as little monotonously as possible-certainly with nothing of real interest in one another beyond the companionship of the passing moment. But some things which were said to me by this plain, unpretending little woman, who bore me company for a few hours that now far-away morning, are still among the most vivid of memories, and it ¡8 with the hope that they may convey to other young wives a suggestion of value that I herewith pass them on. We had been speaking of the universality of the tobacco habit, and of the tendency of men soon alter marriage to fall into the practice of spending their evenings away from home, the objective moral being, of course, the i...

In mother's lap lay a very short letter, just received from a half-sister of hers, who lived over at Amherst Corners. Of course she wasn't our aunt, but we always called her Aunt Ruth, and this is what Aunt Ruth said: "DEÍR SISTER : "I have had a fall, and hurt my back so much that I cannot work.

An Old Lady's Advice. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

I An Old .Lady's Advice. My daughter, when you note that the man who wants to marry you is just too awfully anxious to learn whether you can bake a loaf of bread or wash a shirt with Chinese dexterity, before you close the negotiations, do you just fly around and ascertain whether that man is willing or able to earn enongh flour to make a biscuit, and if he ñas paid for the shirt he wants you to wash. Nine times out of ten, daughter, the man who only wants to marry a housekeeper can be kept more economically in the workhouse than he can in your father's house.

POET'S PAGE. A DEAR LITTLE "SOMEBODY." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 September 1890

A DEAR LITTLE "SOMEBODY." i Somebody crawls into mamma's bed Just at the break of day, Snuggles up close and whispers loud : "Somebody's come to stay." Somebody rushes through the house, Never once shuts a door ; Scatters her playthings all around Over the nursery floor. Climbs on the fence, and tears her clothes Never a bit cares she Swings on the gate, and makes mud pies Who can somebody be ? Somebody looks with roguish eyes Up through her tangled hair ; "Somebody's me," she says, "but then Somebody loesn't care."

Dress Reform from America. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 October 1890

Dress Reform from America. MES. JENXESS MILLER, the leader of dress reform in America, and her sister, Miss Jenness, are at present on a visit to England. The Committee of the Rational Dress Society and a few other ladies had the opportunity of meeting the American ladies by the invitation of Mrs. Robertson Marsh in Bina Gardens, and were much interested in examining the patterns broughtby Mrs. Miller and discussing both the points of difference and resemblance with the patterns recommended by tho Rational Dress Society. Mrs. Miller believes that true beauty and true comfort are inseparable, and that in seek ing the former she buds the latter, and this without too wide deviations from the fashions of our time. The garments that were submit ted to inspection appeared to combino lightness and warmth, ease, and grace in a superior degree, and to be eminently adapted for the "physical culture" which Mrs. Miller advocates, ie., exorcises whereby tho muscles of the body are strengthened a...

W0MEN WARDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 October 1890

W0MEN W^DEI^. r TTTJEN govern the world, and the schemes on which all our institutions are founded show men's thoughts only. No woman's opinion helps to sway the councils of the powerful, and the result is that in most public questions the woman's point of view is unconsciously passed by. Those v.ho have power believe in perfect good faith that absolute justice is done, though in reality the just claims of one half of the community are forgotten. Fortunately the sense of justice in men prompts them to readjust laws and'customs which are injurious or unjust, but a very long course of pleading, reasoning, and agi tating has to be undertaken before a suffi ciently large number of honest men are ¿_ convinced that the injustice is realf We are of opinion that it is utterly bar y barous that there should be no women warders in police stations and lock-ups. To these places women of all ages and conditions are brought ; from the girl arrested for the first time, down to the hardened, .blasp...

Thought It Was Her Husband. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 October 1890

Thought It Was Her Husband. Some men who pass for respectable citizens and who are not without good qualities, have a habit not only of finding fault with their wives, but of doing it in terms such as no gentleman would ever think of applying to any lady except his own wife, or possibly his own sister. There is a story that such a man came home from the shop one night and foui-d his wife much excited over the outrageous behavior of a tramp. He had begged for something to eat, and not liking what the woman gave him, abused her in the roughest terms. "johnny" said the mau thoroughly indig nant, '-when you heard that cowardly rascal abusing your mother, why didn't you run at once to the store and let me know ''. I would Jiave ¡nade short work of him. Didn' you hear '{' "Yes, pa, T heard. I was out in the barn and heard what he said about the victuals; but" "But what?''

Do Servant Girls Earn their Wages. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 October 1890

Do Servant Girls Earn their Wages. A FAIR test of the question whether servant girls are expected to do more work and work longer hours for a given wage than other people do, is to estimate the price at which outsiders would be likely to tender for the same work. Take the case of a general servant who does everything for a household of say six people. She has to attend to five bedrooms probably. Now to clean up everything, to refill the ewers, make the beds, and dust and sweep the room cannot take less than a quarter of an hour and no one would be likely to tendej we imagine at less than 3d. per room, i.e., 1/3 per day, or 8/9 per week. No washer woman would do the washing for six people for less than 9/- per week ; and the house hold washing, the sheets, towels, etc., etc., would be worth io/- more. Would a waiter agree to set a table, wait on six persons and wash up all the dishes, plates, cups, glasses, tureens, knives, forks and spoons, etc., for less than 6d. per meal. We think...

---~s_.-... Injustice in tÇe Public Instruction Department. l^OUND the blazing log fire of a snug Monaro home, an impromptu family conclave was held one cold evening not long ago. Mr. M. had had rather too many irons in the fire when he took ill and died and Uncle Jack had come from Sydney to help his brother's widow set affairs straight. Mrs. M. was glad to be prompted by his knowledge of the world, but shrank from making herself and her family dependent on any one's generosity. The point at which our story opens is where Mrs. M. turned to her eldest .laughter with "So you still wish to entei the Public Instruction Department, Lily ?" Lily.'-"Yes mother, if I can." Mrs. M.-"You may write an application to the Inspector to-night if you wish, but are you quite sure you have given the matter thorough consideration? You know, my dear, that you cannot hope to succeed without hard work." Lily.-"No, indeed, mother, I don't expect it. But hen, you know 1 am lond of studying and am always s...

IS WOMAN WOMAN'S WORST ENEMY. (From Harper's Bazar.) [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 4 October 1890

ig WBMHN WöMW'g mim EjVEMY. (From Harper's Binar.) Y í ÍHEN Aristotle accused Euripides of representing his characters as "bad with mit necessity," he anticipated a reproof which might justly be administered to some modern writers concerning women. The harsh statement which serves us for a text is presented to us in various forms nearly every day in our newspapers or in general conversation. It is manifestly an old-time prejudice which too many repeat without suitable investigation. It is abhorrent to every good man when applied to the women of his own household, and contrary to the facts presented to one who ventures to make human nature a study. Looking over the ages of history we fin*! some instances of cruelty recorded where the atrocious nuwomanliness of some individual woman stands out in bold relief ; hut man's cruelty to man is far greater and no historian comments upon it with special reference to sex. When writers of either sex hold the mirror up to reflect human nature it...
