Inexpensive Home Decorations. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
Inexpensive Home Decorations. BY ANNA HIKBICH8. House-cleaning frequently results in consign ing seemingly useless articles to the garret or to the flames. Many things so discarded, with a little ingenuity and trifling expense, may be converted into objects of utility and grace. A coat of varnish is easily applied and makes dull furniture appear quite new. A worn-out cane-seated chair is remodelled in this way. Uild with metal paint and cushion with silk patchwork or embroidered broadcloth. Strips of canvas or burlap are first tacked in the seat of the chair and the cushion is attached by means of fancy-headed brass tacks and gimp braid. It seems to be quite the proper thing to have a white chair adorn the parlor. An old rocker painted white, ornamented, with fine lines of gilt and having a soft cushion of yellow material, complies with this caprice of fashion. It is a charming fancy to have a small table of similar description-white and gold -stand beside the rocker. The table is g...

Grandmother's Spectacles. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
Grandmother's Spectacles. They had done good work in their day. Tliey were large and round, so that when she s.w a thing she saw it. There was a «rack across the upper part of the glass, for many a baby had made them a plaything, and all the grandchildren had at some time tried them on. They had sometimes been so dimmed with tears that she had to take them off and wipe them on her apron before she could see through them at all. Her "second sight'" had now come, and she would let her glasses slip down and then look over the top of them while she read. Grandmother was pleased at the return of her vision. Getting along so well without them, she often lost her spectacles. Sometimes they would he for weeks untouched on the shelf in a red morocco case, the flap uplifted. She could now look out upon the hills, which for thirty years she had not been able to see from the piazza. Those were mistaken who thought she had no poetry in her soul. You could see it in the way she put her hand under...

Home-Made Standing Work-Basket. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
Home-Made Standing Work-Basket. j BY AGNUS CAER SAQK. Every woman appreciates the convenience of a standing work-basket, but the expense of the frail, dainty wicker ones sold in the shops deters many from gratifying their fancy. Here is a pretty, ornamental little affair that can be easily made by a moderately clever person and at a comparatively small cost, while it serves every purpose for holding work, and being "a thing of beauty" is therefore "a joy forever." The legs are formed of pieces of broom-sticks cut twenty two inches in length and securely nailed together in tripod fashon. Any strong, flat basket about thirteen in. in diameter is then fastened firmly on top and the whole given two coats of either white or black enamel paint ; while if a very fancy stand is desired, touches of liquid guilt may also be added. The basket is lined with yellow, or any other light coloured sateen, one yard and a half being quite sufficient, and tiny pockets are neatly sewed on the sides for ...
Dont's for Amateurs. FROM "HOUSEHOLD." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
Dont's for Amateurs. FROM "HOUSEHOLD." Don't plaint seeds as small as the eye of a needle, such as petunia and portulaca, under an inch of soil. They should be merely covered, and that with soil as fine as you can make it. Don't pour water on plants or tiWor beds out of a pail or dipper or anything else ; use a sprinkler, or a hose with a tine spray. Don't let any one make you believe that luck has anything to do with success in cultivating flowers. It has not ; unfailing watchfulness and industry, with a mixture of common senso is worth all the luck in the world in flower gardening, as in other things. Don't begin with high-priced novelties, or failure will most likely attend your best endeav ours. Select for your first venture, kinds and varieties of flowers and plants most easily grown. Any friend who grows flowers can tell j you what these are. I Don't fuss top much over your plants ; they like to be let alone when they are doing their best, and so do you. Don't follow everybody...

The Art of Washing Windows. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
Côe art of oasimtfl »tntiotos. BT DORA LIEDELLEN. _ ._í. _2o*._. Only a few days ago I saw a woman, with no strength to spare, on a rainy day, too cold for such work to be done successfully, let alone com fortably, washing windows as her great-grand mother might have been excused for doing eighty years ago. Yet my respect for the aged, and my regard for old times, make me doubt if the old lady named would have made the task so diffi cult. A pail of lukewarm, dirty looking soap suds, another of warmish, not very clean water for rinsing, a stiff, clumsy rag with abundant promise of lir.t, for washing and wiping, these were the appliances being used by the daughter of the afternoon of this nineteenth century. vVith such management is it any wonüer that women "just hate housework ?" Women, let your brains rest your feet, and save your backs. Washing windows is hurd work, and no sensible woman will begin without having made good preparation for it, and she will not make the mistake of un...
The Electoral Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890
~~j The Electoral Bill. Sir Henry Parkes has unfortunately to post pone the Electoral Bill, and we shall have to wait a further six months before it is fully discussed in the House. Possibly the Premier will move the second reading this session, and so be able to expound the purposes ef the measure: The Bill is designed to insure that the people shall be governed by themselves, and according to their own will, that is to say every man and every woman will have one vote, and no one will have more than one vote be cause he is wealthy and owns property in various places, as is the c tse now. Manhood and womanhood will be claim enough to entitle to to a vote ; no property qualifications whatever will be required. The Bill will enable policemen and the military to vote and will abolish the present antiquated system of nomination on the hustings. Seats will also be more equitably distributed. This is probably the boldest and most liberal measure ever submitted » to any Parliament and it b...
