AN UNEQUAL PARTNERSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
HY ELLA H. STRATTON*. [Ü^EVER dawned a brighter morning than that which ushered in Ka}- Huntington's wedding day. Never throbbed a happier heart than that of the fair girl who forsaking home and friends, vowed to love, honour and obey him 'until death do part us.' "She was the belle of the village, and ought to have had her choice among us all," complained Carl Trenton, who everbody new had been refused by the bride, at least a dozen times, '.He is so handsome,-and rich, too, they say. Really Nell Alden has done remarkably well," said more than one envious maiden. Ray Huntington, although he was not a rich man, was advancing rapidly on the road to wealth. As he was a lawyer in a distant city, the wedded pair at once went to the home which he had pro vided there, a modest cottage in the suburbs, very plainly furnished, but as beautifnl as a palace in the eyes of the loving bride. '.We shall be away from the disagrreable noise and bustle dearest," said Ray. uneasily, "I can lunch at K...
HELPS FOR THE FRETFUL BABY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
flEIiPJS WflE FREWlíIí Bnm. BY ISABEL R. WALLACH. ' ' ' U-V) i /Ss I fe'-»-'-'" -~ mg JIJHE -writer recalls a case where a young child cried almost incessantly during wa king hours, and frequently during sleep ; at last when it was six months old, an abscess formed in the groin, and it soon discharged o needle. How or when it entered the child's body could only be surmised ; but for six months that child had been branded "a cross baby,"' and had, alasl often been allowed, by the mother even, to cry "until it was tired." Extreme cases such as this are no of frequent occurrence; but the reason of the child's inces sant eryJng was at last revealed. A child is never naturally fretful, and it does not cry without due cause. Undoubtedly the cross baby is nndergoing a certain amount of physical discomfort ; this may be due to ill health, to improper food, to loss of sleep, to uncomfortable clothing, or to a sense of thirst. Ill health betrays itself in fever, loss of flesh, lassitude, etc....
Home Hints and Suggestions. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
Home Hints and Suggestions. A woman of keen artistic perception was obliged to put in a very large hall a lantern of clear plate glass, as the light was needed on the stairway, and stained glass would have obscured it too much. The light from it was glaring and most annoying as it shone into the open doors on either side of the hal!. After a little thought this ingenious woman bought several tiny Japanese parasols to be found at Japanese stores, and first fastened a small piece of tape to the top of the sides of the lantern. After that she pinned on a few parasols -first breaking off the handles-and upon each of these three others, and so on until the sides v.ere covered through which the light had been annoying. The effect was unexpectedly exquisite. The light was softened and not obscured, and the lantern became at once a pretty thing instead of an ugly one. The cost was trifling as the little parasols can be bought by the dozen for a small sum. The idea was not to cover the entir...

A LYRIC OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Why condemn [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
A LYRIC OF THE GOLDEN AGE. BV THOMAS LAKE HARRIS. Why condemn One sex to hopeless ruin for a fault, And open for the other all the halls Where wealth stands bowing to receive the guest, And beauty crowns him with her festal flowers ? Two sinners fall into the same great sin ; One lays her pale, white infant in the grave, And, broken hearted, haunts the public streets ; Perchance the other rises in the scale Of wealth and office, till the people's voice Hails him as ruler of the Commonwealth, And bishops bless for him the plenteous board, And when he dies the public papers groan With weight of lamentation, for "his worth " They say, "was great ; " the obelisk ascends, The statue, poem, picture, eulogy, All tell his virtues and make wide his fame. The prodigal son returns, and from afar The father hastes to clasp him in his arms, For him they kill the tatted calf, "for this " Our son " they say, "was dead and is alive, " Was lost in sorrow and in joy is found. " The prodigal daughter,...
THE KINGSWOOD COOKERY BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
THE KINGSWOOD COOKERY BOOK. THE English edition of the Kingswood Cookery Book having been exhausted, an Australian edition has been issued by Messrs ; George Robertson and Co., written ex pressly for Australian needs by an authoress (Mrs Wicken) after a residence of some years in Australia principally spent in New South Wales. Mrs. Wicken is a diplômée to the Watimal Training School for Cookery (South Kensington) and has had considerable experience in teaching the art of which her book will show that she is an able exponent. She is at present engaged by the Technical College, there she has a large class and lectures to them once or twice a week. It would be difficult for the most expeienced housewife to peruse this neatly bound and inexpensive volume without gaining some further insight into the mysteries of an art which has more to do with the comfort and happiness of society than all the other arts combined.

SYDNEY CHILDREN. RAGGED SCHOOL, BRISBANE STREET, Sydney, October 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
SYDNEY CHILDREN. RAGGED SCHOOL, BRISHANK STREET, Sydney, October 1890. DEAR EDITRESS, Will you kindly give space for the following in your valuable paper, which, I know, is widely read in the bush. The little children there, who daily enjoy fresh air, fresh food, and clean, dainty clothing, know nothing of the scjualor, misery and dirt of hundreds of children in Sydney. I think, if they did, they would spare a little from their toys and other luxuries to send something to their poor little brothers and sisters. I know places,-to call them "homes" would be a misnomer-where children have no meals, no beds, lie down in the rags they wear in the daytime. Yes, lie down on the dirty boards, get up in the morning, and, if they can get a crust of dry bread, they call it breakfast, if not, they patiently wait till dinner-time, perhaps then some kind person may give them a piece of bread, this they call dinner, and so on. from day to day. Oh, it is perfectly dreadful to witness these things a...
The Ministry of Little Things in the Sick Room. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
The Ministry of Little Things in the Sick Room. ONE of tlie luxuries of invalid Hie is a flannel wash cloth. To a sensitive person who dreads and shrinks from the touch of a wet linen or cotton cloth, the substitution of a wash cloth or a soft baby flannel will oftentimes serve to render the bath agreeable, if not positively en joyable. It should be made of two or three thicknesses of the flannel lightly tacked to gether, and should not be larger than the nurse's hands can hold. Another desirable article for one who is long confined to the bed is a light print wrapper to be worn through the day instead of a night dress. One who has tried it says that the first of many reasons for appreciating it is that it enables her to put her arms outside the bed clothes, or step from the bed to the chair, without having any of the undressed feel ing she is always conscious of when clad in a night-dress. To insure its being comfortable and in no way burdensome, it should be cut by the night dress...

Save all your old white muslin. It makes good dusters and will also be useful for cleaning win dows, as it is free from lint. LOOSE SCREWS.-The most effectual remedy for a loose screw is to fill the hole with cork and then turn the screw in again. It is not of much use to put in a splinter of wood or a piece of rag. Smoke stained lamp chimneys can be cleaned with salt. Wash them clean first with warm water and soap, and while wet rub them well with dry salt. This will remove the most obstinate stains Vinegar is a good thing for the same purpose. When tablecloths are worn beyond mending cut square pieces from the best paris of them and hem them neatly. They make nice napkins for the little children to use at the table, and also do nicely for them to carry their lunches to school in, for if they are stained or lost it will not matter much, as your sets will not be broken. Shoes lying about make an otherwise neat room look very untidy. If you have not much closet room it is a good plan...
SELF-ABNEGATION AMONG WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
SELF-ABNEGATION AMONG WOMEN. BY KATE T. WOODS, ix Harper's Bazar. A QUAINT old writer said that "a good .woman's conscience was as active as her pulse." There is much truth in this. The woman who earnestly strives to do her whole duty prays that it may be done conscientiously day by day. The average woman, however, spells the word duty with a capital and lives up to the spelling. The old idea of self-sacrifice and self-torture as means to a holy end is fast disappearing as the higher education of women receives the consideration it so justly deserves. Every woman knows or should know that self-abneg ation cramps the mental powers and dwarf s the individual soul. Constant giving drains the citadels of life, and when we strip the old hoary bugbear of duty-which has broken many a woman's heart-of all sentimental drapery, we find the plain truth before us. The individual is responsible for her talents. It matters little whether she buries them in a napkin or in the selfishness of some h...
QUEENSLAND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 November 1890
QUEENSLAND NOTES. GREAT opposition is shown by shop keepers and large dress makers to the Woman's Union. They do not absolutely forbid their employees to join, but they are made to understand that the step will be regarded with displeasure. TnE third general meeting of the Queensland Woman's Suffrage League, took place in the Town Hall on Tuesday evening October 14th. In consequence of the evident approach of a heavy thundez'-storm the meeting was not as well attended as the preceding ones have been. Mrs. Reading took the chair. Seven new members were enrolled. Among the correspondence was a letter from Hon.. A. J. Thynne, in response to the petition from the W. S. L., praying that the Married Woman's Property Bill should be made law during the present session, in which the hon. gentleman promised to use his utmost exertion to secure the passing of the said Bill. Also a letter from the president of the Total Prohibi tion League stating that in consequence of the resolution passed by...
