For Cold Feet. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
For Cold Feet. An Inventor has hit upon an ingenious and novel idea for dealing with the affliction of cold feet. It is very simple. All one needs to do is to take a large sheet of paper and roll It up, pasting the edges, so as to form a tube. When a person goes to bed, he places the tube beneath the bedclothes and breathes through it. That is to say, holding one end of the tube in l)Is mouth, he takes in his supply of air thrpugh his nostrils in the ordinary way, and expels his breath through the tube. By this means a continuous current of warm air is poured into the bed, contributing the requisite heat. When his feet are warm enough, hi discards the tube and goes to sleep.
SEES CLOTHING AS BLESSING Writer of Opinion That Some of World's “Big" Men Do Well in Covering Themselves. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
SEES CLOTHING AS BLESSING Writer of Opinion That Some of World's “Big" Men Do Well in Covering Themselves. Wherever one goes in Polynesia one Is Reminded, by contrast, of the cost physically to men of our own race of our sheltered way of living, writes James Norman Hall, in Harper's Magazine. There on every hapd are men well past middle life, with compact, symmetrical bodies and the natural grace of healthy children. One sees them carrying immense burdens without exertion, swimming in the open sea for an hour or two at a time while spearing fish, loafing ashore with no greater apparent effort for yet longer periods. Sometimes, when they have it. they eat enormous quantities of food at one sitting, and at others, under necessity, as sparingly as so many dyspeptics. It would be impossible to formulate from their example any ride • for rational living in more civilized communities. The daily quest for food under primitive conditions keeps them alert and sound of body, so that, whether ...
HOARDER CHASTISED IN 1777 “Coffee Party," Composed of Boston Women, Confiscated His Goods, According to Old Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
HOARDER CHASTISED IN 1777 “Coffee Party," Composed of Boston Women, Confiscated His Goods, According to Old Letter. “Females” of ye olde Boston, staging a “coffee party” In 1777 which rivaled in a small way the famous “Tea Party” In 1773, personally chastised aproflteer hoarder of foodstuffs and confiscated some of his stock, accord ing to a letter from Abigail Adams to her distinguished, husband, later second President of the United States. Wrating at Boston, under date of July 31, 1777, Abigail wrote to John, then attending the Continental congress at Philadelphia: “There is a great scarcity of sugar and coffee, articles which the female part of the state is very loath to give up, especially whilst they consider the great scarcity occasioned by the merchants having secreted a large quantity. It is rumored that an eminent stingy merchant, who is a bachelor, had a hogshead of coffee in his store; which he refused to sell under six shillings per pound. “A number of females, some say ...
Those Who Dare Not Smile. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Those Who Dare Not Smile. The ludicrous has its place in the universe. It is not a human invention, but one of the divine ideas illustrated in the practical jokes of kittens and monkeys. Curious it is that we always consider solemnity and encounter of wits as essential to the idea of the future life of those whom we thus deprive of half their faculties, and then call them blessed. There are not a few, who, even in this life, seem to be preparing themselves for that smileless eternity to which they look forward, by banishing all gayefy from their hearts and all joyousness from their countenances. I met one such in the streets not infrequently, a person of intelligence and education, but who gives me (and all that he passes) such a rayless, chilling look of recognition—something as If he were one of heaven’s assessors, come down to doom. I don’t doubt he would cut his kitten’s tail olf if he caught her playing with it Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Extraordinary Time Keeping, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Extraordinary Time Keeping, Methods of reckoning time have always been a source of trouble to scientists. The first standard was the lunar month—that is, the period of about 20days between one new moon and tlie next. Twelve of these months seemed to correspond to the four seasons, and so the year was fixed at 354 days. They soon found that they were getting badly mixed, that the seasons did not correspond to the months; in the course of 10 years they were more than three mouths wrong. The Jews and Greeks stuck in another month now and then. They added seven months in 19 years and managed to keep a clumsy track of time.
Take “Movies” Seriously. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 1 April 1921
Take “Movies” Seriously. Moving pictures are a marvel to the South Sea islanders, according to a recently returned visitor to that portion of tlte globe. The tragic part of the film is too much for the natives, he said, and there is so much weeping and groaning that a man has to go up in the gallery and tell them that it will all come out all right in the end. Thus assured," the audience proceeds to wipe up and watch for further developments, and when the heroine is rescued and the villain is thwarted, pandemonium breaks loose, for the people not only shout, but dance with joy.
