Cat Climbs Own Tail. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 7 January 1921
Cat Climbs Own Tail. Bessie, the kinkajou. at the zoo, Is the wonder of the inmates of the small cat house, for she can climb up her own tail, says the London Chronicle. If you see Bessie yawning: you will know that she has been giving “matinees” in return for grapes and bananas, for the kinkajou is a noctur ml animal and should pass the dfty in sleep. She is very much attached to her keeper—as you would if you saw her hanging from his finger by the tip of her long prehensile tall. When tired of gazing at his feet she obtains a more cheerful aspect by arching her back, seizing the base of her tail with her hand-like paws and climbing up it.
Folklore About the Hair. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 7 January 1921
Folklore About the Hair. A heavy head of hair indicates few if any virtues, according to folklore gathered from many parts of the world. The Turks claim that women with short Intellect have long hair. The Albanians say with finality, “Long hair, little brains.” Other contributors say that much hair indicates ungovernable temper and inclination to melancholy. “If a girl has a great deal of hair she will marry poverty, while the girl with little hair will marry rich,” according to another source. Curly hair is a sign of a scold, and also early widowhood if the hair falls in little curls at the back of the neck. A long and peaceful life is promised the owner of hair that grows low on the forehead and retreats up the side of the head over the temples. ChesL nut or brown hair denotes fairness in dealings, generosity, absence of deceit, but unhappiness in domestic life.

HAS SEPARATE POWER PLANT Decidedly Novel Arrangement of Ship Recently Devised by an Ingenious Frenchman. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 7 January 1921
HAS SEPARATE POWER PLANT Decidedly Novel Arrangement of Ship Recently Devised by an Ingenious Frenchman. As odd a ship as one is likely to meet at sea is described as the invention of a French maritime expert seeking a means for lowering the cost of transporting cargoes. Hitherto a ship and the power plant that makes it move have been regarded as one and inseparable, and while the cargo is being taken on or discharged, the power equipment necessarily liesHdle. And so this ingenious Frenchman, says Popular Mechanics Magazine, has invented a new’ kind of vessel in which the power plant is detachable, and having temporarily finished its work for one cargo can (hen busy itself with another. As this new’ ship is put together, the cargo-carrying section, naturally much the larger part of it, ends with a V-shaped indentation, much like the indentation which the grocer makes in a new cheese when he cuts a pound for his customer, and the bow of the section that carries the power plant fits i...

A New York man resolved to quit swearing this year, binding himself to pay to his wife $5.00 for every cuss word used. She now has an account of $2,000 against him. Wonder if the girls ears will still be pretty and pink when allowed to come out of ambush?
