11l For Six Months Kuttama, Ky.—“About eighteen years ago I was bedfast off and on for about six months, suffering from feminine trouble. I doctored with two d 1 f f erent doctors, but nothing seemed to do me any good, I was getting worse all the time. A friend came and told me to write to the specialists at Dr. Pierce’s Invalids’ Hotel in Buffalo, N. Y., as the doctors here couldn't do roe any good, so I wrote and they told me to take Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription, Golden Medical Discov. ery, and Pleasant Pellets according to directions, and in a short time I was well.” —MßS.

HINDU IDEA OF “SEVEN SEAS’' Writer in Boston Herald Shows That Expression Is Older Than the English Language. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
HINDU IDEA OF “SEVEN SEAS’' Writer in Boston Herald Shows That Expression Is Older Than the English Language. The question as to the origin and meaning of the term “The Seven Seas” having been raised in this column, 1 am surprised,- says a writer in the Boston Herald, that as yet no one has called attention to the fact that the expression is far older than the English language, antedating even the science of geography as we understand it. In prehistoric Hindu thought our world consists as to its solid parts of seven concentric, continental Dvipas, whose mnues are Jambu, Plaksha, Salmali, Kusa, Krauncha, Saka and Pushkara. According to the sacred Vishnu Parana: “They are surrounded severally by seven great seas—the sea • ’ salt water (Lavana). of sugar-cane ice (Iksliu), of wine (Sura), of clari■d butter (Sarpis), or curds (Dadhi), milk (Dugdha). and of fresh water ? ala), Jambu-dvipa is the center of «d tliese, and in the copies of this is the golden mountain Merit.” Jambu Is &a...
BELIEF HAS NO FOUNDATION Conjunction of the Rising of the Dog-Star and the Sun Doesn't Bring „ Extreme Heat. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
BELIEF HAS NO FOUNDATION Conjunction of the Rising of the DogStar and the Sun Doesn't Bring „ Extreme Heat. “Dog days” was the name given by astronomers to the 20 days before and 20 days after the rising of the dogstar, or Sirius, with the sun. This period is reckoned at present from the 3d of July to tlie 11th of August. For years it was the accepted opinion that this conjunction of the rising of the dog-star and the sun was one of the causes for the extreme heat ol the summer. This conjunction, however, does not occur at the same time In all latitudes, nor is it constant in the same region for a long period; hence there is much variation as to the limits of the dog-star period. It is a mere coincidence that the rising of Sirius and the sun occurs during the hottest season of the year just now 7 . In time, astronomers say, It will take place in the midst of winter. Sirius is called the dog-star because it is the brightest luminary in the constellation “cams major" or Greater Dog.—C...
Perfect in One Particular. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Perfect in One Particular. The old and highly esteemed coachman of a family has at last resigned himself to a pension and a lodge-gate keeper’s duties —if he is by no means resigned to the sight of the chauffeur who now reigns in his stead. The blow of the loss of his post has been softened slightly by the presentation ot 3 handsome portrait, or, as he calls It, w Mkeness,” of himself in full regagia, a pair of his favorite horses cavorting nobly under his whip. The old man is right well pleased with the effect, and so is his good dame, though, when questioned as to the portrait’s resemblance to her husband, her answer was somewhat equivocal. “Very like,” she said, “but particular the buttons,” —London Tit-Bits.

Philosopher Exonerated. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Philosopher Exonerated. Joan Jacques Rousseau, son of a watchmaker, horn in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1712, is one of Geneva’s bestknown celebrities. He disapproved of the unjust distinction then made between the aristocracy and the poorer classes, and as champion of the latter he exposed his convlctiorvs in the “Contrat Social,” which, together with his “Emile,” was committed to the flames by the public executioner. But the very descendants of his fierce opponents erected a statue in his honor on the tiny island which he —as an almost pious devotee of nature —loved so much, aud which is now known as Rousseau’s isle.
BORROWING MADE FINE ART "S*. Expert Explains How He Managed to Live Well Without Resorting to Degrading Toil. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
BORROWING MADE FINE ART "S*. Expert Explains How He Managed to Live Well Without Resorting to Degrading Toil. The man has been a mystery to me and I’ll admit It. He dresses like a race horse tout, he is a most inconsistent and mercurial liar, and his eyes are set too close together. Vet he usually has money, he seems never to miss a meal, and he inhabits places frequented by highly civilized folk. “He’s a borrower,” said the hotel detective. “He can borrow $2 from the mailAclerk here, and that’s a feat of legerdermain. If I let him talk to me for 15 seconds be could borrow money from me.” A set of circumstances made it possible for me to put the borrower in the press and squeeze some conversation out of him. I wanted to know how he did It. “You are too well dressed and too conspicuously clothed,” I told him cruelly. “Your face Is that of a doormat thief, and while you are an excellent, you are likewise a diffuse and forgetful liar. Yet you manage to borrow enough money to keep on li...
NAME IS IMPORTANT THING Writer of Boys' Stories Must Select Those of His Hero and VII. lain With Care. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
NAME IS IMPORTANT THING Writer of Boys' Stories Must Select Those of His Hero and VII. lain With Care. It Is wonderful how much depends upon getting effective names for both hero and villain In boys’ stories, writes a literary correspondent. Certain names, and particularly certain combinations of names, make a subtle appeal to the writer and actually help him In his work. Jim, Joe, BUI, Dick, Tom, and Harry are names still as much in common use as ever they were. Yet if the writer of a boys’ story is going to use one of them he must be careful to combine it with a surname that is of a less common order. For Instance, you could call your hero Dick Sterne, but Harry Jenkins would be simply unthinkable. The youth of the present day have the critical faculty highly developed and, to the best of my belief, prefer names that are a little out of the common. Personally, I generally call my hero Roger, Basil, Owen, Digby, Roy, Boyd, or by some name of similar type. It Is worth remembering th...
Ibi Sin Started It. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Ibi Sin Started It. The first known portrait of a human being has been discovered among the University of Pennsylvania’s collection of clay tablets from Babylonia. It is said to be a picture of Ibi Sin, the last king of Ur. This information Is interesting but too Indefinite. There Is a lot we’d like to know about it. For Instance, is It a portrait of Ibi Sin as he looked Ip his first dress suit; or a likeness of old Ibi taken in his lodge regalia, or a picture of Mr. Sin before or after taking somebody’s famous spring tonic? We know little about Ibi Sin, but if he really was the first man to establish the custom of being photographed on any and all occasions we’ll say his last name was well chosen. — Detroit Free Press.
Mid-Victorian Markswoman, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Mid-Victorian Markswoman, Years ago, Richard H. Dana, a very well introduced young American, w T as much entertained by the greatest and most distinguished of the English elite. In his book, “Hospitable England in the Seventies,” Mr. Dana show's many charming and amusing pictures of the period. Once, for instance, on a gala day he saw Queen Victoria make a wonderful bull’s-eye at one thousand yards. The young man’s suspicions were aroused, and he asked how It was possible for her to shoot so well, and Lord Spencer explained to him that the rifle was set in a vise, the wind tested, the rifle fired several times until it was exactly adjusted, and then a silken cord was tied at one end to the trigger and the other end the queen pulled.

Not Quite the Idea. “Who are the most esthetic people |p this town?” "Well.” said the citizen who was caught off his guard, “I dop’t know Just what you mean by ‘esthetic,’ but without a dictionary. I’d say that the two most esthetic people in our town are Mr. Kibbles and Mr. Jagsby. They spend about half their time in a Turkish bath,”—Birmingham Age-Her-aid.
OTfE 0? NATURE'S MARVELS Naturalist Enthusiastic Over the Wonderful Composition and Use* of the Spider’s Web. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
OTfE 0? NATURE'S MARVELS Naturalist Enthusiastic Over the Wonderful Composition and Use* of the Spider’s Web. In his book “A Naturalist in Himala.va,” Captain It. N. Hings ton notes that when a spider’s web has become worn out beyond further patching, the maker eats it. “I was at first very much surprised to think that a spider’s stomach could be so capacious as to contain the complete snare.” says the captain, “in tills, ho we ter, 1 was much mistake 1 a; for 1 found that a large, complete snare, eleven inches In diameter, was of such delicate substance and compressible into so small a bulk that, when rolled Into a ball between the fingers, it formed a compact mass but little larger than an ordinary pin’shead. A spider will often swallow entire a fly of much greater dimensions than Its own compact snare. I look on the circular snare of the Epeira as almost as beautiful an example of mathematical accuracy In the life of organic beings as the exquisite structure of the honeycomb. “Bu...
PEACOCK A DIGNIFIED LOVER Elaborate “Showing Off" a Trifle Absurd, but Nature Gives Him Wonderful Adornment. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
PEACOCK A DIGNIFIED LOVER Elaborate “Showing Off" a Trifle Absurd, but Nature Gives Him Wonderful Adornment. During the breeding season it is difficult to find two male ruffs identical in coloring, individuals differing to an extraordinary degree, the “ruff” from which the bird gets its name itself varying astonishingly from speckled white to brown or golden chestnut. The elaborate showlng-off of the male before his charmer appears comically absurd, less dignified even than the courting antics of the fiddler crab, who frantically waves aloft his enormously developed right claw to attract the attention of the female of his choice. As a dignified lover the peacock ranks high. At first glance It would appear that the coloring of the bird has defeated by Its splendor its real purpose. But the jungle is the peacock’s home; the jungle is green—and so Is the main coloring of the peacock ! The peahen has learned to look for and approve of magnificent decorations in her mate. The “eyes” of t...
Polk Inauguration Unique. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Polk Inauguration Unique. me inauguration of James K. Polk as President was marked by two odd things. The first practical test of the telegraph at an inaugural ceremony was made, and there were two inaugural balls held in the evening. Professor Morse, the Inventor of the telegraph, brought out his instrument to the portico platform, close to one side of it, where he could hear all that was said, and transmitted the results to Baltimore as fast as they transpired. The telegraph had had a previous test at the convention which nominated Polk, the first really practical test since Its invention. Of the two balls, John Quincy Adams tells that one was held at Carusi’s ball, at $lO a plate, of all parries; the other, at $5 a plate, of pure Democrats, at,the National theater. Mr. Polk attended both, but supped with the true-blue five-dollar Democracy.
Carlyle's Queer Taste. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Carlyle's Queer Taste. Carlyle played extraordinary tricks with his digestive apparatus. Writing in the British Medical Journal some years after Carlyle’s death, Sir Richard Quain remarked: “The late Mr. Carlyle was a patient of mine. As all the world knows, he was a man of great judgment and great power of observation, yet with regard to himself the only remedy I could ever get him to take was grey powder. This was when he had that wretched dyspepsia to which he was subject, and which was fully accounted for by t! e fact that he w'as particularly fond of very nasty gingerbread. Many times I have seen him sitting in the chimney corner smoking a clay pipe and eating gingerbread. He overcame the difficulties incidental to this habit by his grey powder, which did him much good.’’
