BRISBANE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890

j3 BRISBANE j^OTES. A committee for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has been formed as projected. It is worked hy a sub-committee of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Society and the name has been changed: it is now "The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty". Initiatory work has already been done hy thu Inspector ia regard to bab}' farming which is believed to be practised hi the city to some considerable extent. It is ii curious circumstance in connection with the Women's Union, that two thirds of tlie members should be tailoresses. Tailors have always been admitted to lie sturdy, radi cal political characters. Their female compan ions evidently follow suit. Carlyle says, mea are only bundles of clothes or habits. Does the making of their clothes induce certain habits or modes (if thought ? Charles Kingsley's tailor, "Alton Locke'' lias had much to do with. the social imjawement of the working classes. In the middle of November the Women's Union received a large accession...

POET'S PAGE. CHRISTMAS! NEW YEAR! [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890

CHRISTMAS! NEW YEAR! The year's last flowers, fragrant and fair, must fall. Beneath the scythe of time low lie their heads : Sweetest in death while golden sunset sheds Its radiant Christmas glory over all. Hark 1 What sweet voices through the distance call ? A sound ot greeting, blent with fond farewells - A joyous clamour as ol silver bells A plaintive murmur chanted o'er a pall, Like roseate clouds with crimson streaks nf pain, Floating above us in the sunlit «ir, Old memories, sad perchance, but oh, how fair In this soft light, waken to life again. Love crowns the past and faith and hope shall steer UPPER PATERSON. °-A'

"THE LEAST OF THESE MY CHILDREN." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 December 1890

THIS month we keep the birthday of The Ideal Man. Most of us celebrate the time by holidays and feasting, and many, thank heaven !, with some softening of the heart for those who are less happy, so that a noble charity begilds the universal merrymaking; and since the children are the chief recipients of Christmas gifts, we devote our space this month to recommend ing to all warm-hearted and generous givers the children of the city slums. There are in Sydney, four Ragged Schools doing a silent work of mercy which must some day when life-accounts are added up, speak eloquently for all who share the glor ious but melancholy labour. Melancholy and exhausting it is for the actual day to day work in good causes is not of that rich hue which one's imagination conceives, when at a distance ws reflect on the noble ness of tlie self-sacrifice and the magnitude of the benefits conferred. The daily work among the waifs ip often of a repulsive kind ; for these children who are too ragged and neg...

CORRESPONDENCE. A TASTEFULLY FURNISHED BEDROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

A TASTEFULLY FURNISHED BEDROOM. DEAR EDITRESS,-b'or the benefit of the readers of "The Dawn," I send a description of a tastefully furnished bedroom that I saw in a friend's house at Christmas. The pretty carpet had small blue roses, and the border of the wall paper, tiny branches of blue flowers. It was a blue room in its hints of colour on toilet cover, mats, and scrap bag. The curtains on the windows were of mull muslin frilled on the inner edges and tied back with ribbons ; they had also a broad strip of blue muslin insertion let in a little from the top and bottom edge. The bed covtrwas of thick, coarse twilled sheeting bound broadly all round with blue cotton dun garee, such as the butchers' aprons are made of, with a wide feather-stitch pattern in blue cotton an inch above it, and above again, a powdering of irregular little back stitches in blue. This matched the curtains exactly, and the effect was very pretty. The bedstead had been painted over with a coating of white enam...

Some Uses of Borax. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

Some Uses of Borax. Sprinkle places infested by ants with borax and yon will soon be rid of them. Blankets and furs put away well sprinkled with borax and done up airtight, will never be troubled with moths. A little borax put in the water before washing red, or red-bordered tablecloths and napkins, will prevent their fading. Ringworms will yield to the borax treatment. Apply a strong solution of borax three times a day; also dust on the fine powder very often. Silver spoons and forks in daily use, may be kept bright by leaving them in strong borax water several hours. The water should be boiling when they are put in. . Put a teaspoonful of borax in your rinsing water; it will whiten the clothes, also remove yellow cast on gar ments that have been laid aside for two or three years. One of the best things to cleanse the Bcalp thoroughly is to dissolve one-half teaspoonful of borax in a quart of water and apply it, rubbing it in well. Rinse thoroughly in clear water. For nice flannels...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

j^ORRESPEN DENCE. DEAB EDITRESS, It is not a difficult matter to alter frocks at the present moment, for fashion lends itself to the occasion. What with the introduction of yokes, sleeves, and skirt trimmings in contrast ing fabrics to that of the entire gown, an old dress is soon remodelled, and enlarged at the same tim«, with every appearance of style and novelty. Doubtless there are costumes remaining from last season which need no remodelling. Child ren grow very quickly, so that the frocks which were carefully put aside, appear useless when they are once more tried on ; the sleeves are so short that they reach but a short distance below the elbow ; the entire bodice is tight to a degree while the skirt is short in comparison. When there is a large family of little ones, the simplest practice is to hand down the garments from one to the other, which avoids the unnecessary trouble of altering them ; yet if there is an only child, or one girl, with brother«, her frocks should not ...

EDUCATION VERSUS MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

EDUCATION VERSUS MARRIAGE. . c HE average man has never seemed to object to a woman working as much as she pleases in any line he has first pointed out to her ; but there are men who complain that women are becoming altogether too indepen dent. As an illustration of this, we calf to mind an article which appeared a short time ago in one of our leading papers opposing the higher education for women. In the light which practical experiments have given on this subject, most of the arguments put for ward seem almost laughably absurd. Yet the writer offers them in apparent good faith. He says highly educated women care less for marriage than their less cultivated and and apparently, in his opinion, more womanly sisters. Women should wish to marry-there fore, they should not be educated. Let him tell us why educated women care less for mar riage. Does education so change their nature that they no longer find marriage a desirable thing ? Impossible. A woman is still a woman whether educate...

POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

J/HEAP and commonplace as it is, the potato *J finds ita way to the table once a day or oftener in every household ; yet there are so many ways of preparing the vegetable that it might be served even more frequently and never appear twice in the one week in the same form. The average cook professes of course, to know them all but generally after she has presented them as boiled, baked, fried, and mashed, her skill is ex hausted. Kven when prepared in these everyday forms, a certain amount of culinary skill is required to render the potato pleasant to the eye as well as to the palate. Boiled potatoes, when properly prepared present a firm, snowy surface, the steam rising from their midst heing the only .evidence of moisture ; they are uniform in size and shape, are easily broken by the fork, and al most melt in the mouth. They must be pared with a sharp knife, quarter lengthwise, all eyes and discolouration removed and then plunged into cold water. A salt-spooonful of baking soda thr...

REMINISCENCES OF MUD PIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

REMINISCENCES OF MUD PIES. PERHAPS not all can say with me that, as they look back on their childhood days, nothing made them happier than playing "mud pies." The aristocratic mother would not touch her child for a week had it been found in that occupation,, thinking no French perfume able to remove the taint of mother earth. Evidently she forgets that from dust we came and to dust we return. Of course my mother was always particular as to the conditition of the weather and ground when I pursued my play. It was never my wish to play when the sun was not shining, for how would the pies bake ? Damp ground breeds malaria, and cold stones result in stiff legs. These had to be avoided, and when such was the case, I contented myself with building Sphinx and pyramids out of sand in the kitchen. How distinctly I can see myself jump out of bed and open the blind in a hurry to see if "OÙ Sol" would condescend to be used as a fire as he does to those on the great deserts. Edna was my constant ...

DROLL THINGS SAID BY CHILDREN A PAIR OF KID GLOVES [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

P^OLL THINGS SAID BY j^HILDREN A PAIR OF KID GLOVES is offered each month to the contributor of the best Original Droll Thing said by a child. Th« prize this month is awarded to the contributor of the first related anecdote hereunder. A little girl at the dinner-table one day, asked to taste a piece of pickle, but after eating it, she may a wry face, said "I don't like it ; it dazzles my tongue." Tom's little cousin Mabel described graphically her sensation on striking a dimpled elbow on the bed earring. "Oh, my !" she sighed, "mamma, I've strucked my arm just where it makes stars in my fingers !" Upon reading aloud a certain droll saying in "The Dawn," a sister turned to her little brother (aged 5) and said, "Fancy, Charlie, cousin Nell wrote that." Charlie begged to be allowed to look at the paper, and after studying it very gravely for about two minutes, handed it back saying, "I never knew Nell could write so good as that 1" M. Ethel (aged 4) on seeing her mother enter the dinin...

"BON VOYAGE, COMRADE." [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 January 1891

"BON VOYAGE, COMRADE." BY ANNA B. BENSBL. "Bon voyage, comrade,"-though we drift apart, Nor time, nor space can dim the love I bear, Which, close and warm, within my aching heart, Throbs on for you, and all your griefs would share. God bless and guide you through the heavy waves That rise and beat against your vessel's prow ! Life's sea heeds not our cries while fierce it raves ; We can but trust to God's calm guidance now. "Bon voyage, comrade !" God be with you, dear ! 'Tis all my heart can say, as, on the tide Our boats drift from each other ; cold and drear Seems all the sunny world, as from my side. You drift afar. For you I kneel and pray In love undying. While I know your heart Is mine I shall not fear, though dark the day, And wide the distance as we drift apart.
