Relic of Slavery Passes [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Relic of Slavery Passes Charley Beard, one of the last relics of slave days in Highland, died at his home one mile east of Monterey last Friday evening, death being due to ola age and paralysis. Uncle Charlie was one among the last of the ex-slave of this section, having belonged to the Given family. He had no record of his birth and but little idea as to age. In approximateing his age he said that, when “Black Sam” was hanged for the murder of Sheridan, he was large enough to ride to town behind, his mother, held on to her skirts as she threaded her way through the throng of people, and remembered distinctly witnessing the execution, which took place in 1856 near the present residence of J. Lee Hiner. tlwing to his previous seclusion and rural environments, Charley doubtless felt “small of his age” in that big c. r °wd&gt; a nd was probably 14 or 15 yeai’6 old. According to this reck oning he was about 80 or 81 at the time of h'f® death, a presumption borne out by his feebl...

DEFECT IN EXISTING MAPS That They Are Not Drawn to Uniform Scale la Felt to Be an Educational Handicap. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
DEFECT IN EXISTING MAPS That They Are Not Drawn to Uniform Scale la Felt to Be an Educational Handicap. It has long been the dream of geographers to make a series of maps of the world on a uniform scale. Indeed, It Is considered unfortunate for school children that the geographies do not show all countries by maps On a single, uniform scale, for unless a student observes very carefully the figures showing the scale of each map or the figures showing the area of the country mapped he is likely to get tbe impression that certain distant lands, which are generally mapped on a small scale, are smaller than those with which he is most familiar. Take Australia, for example: The maps in the geographies now used in most of our schools show it on a small scale — about one-third gs large as that used for the map of the United States; yet Australia is, in fact, nearly as large as the United States*—only about onefortieth (2% per cent) smaller. China is generally shown smaller In area than the ...
