NOTICE If your 1920 tax tickets are not already paid, be sure to call when you come to court and take them up. H. M. SLA YEN, Treas, H. C. 146 Resolutions Hall of Monterey Lodge No. I. O. O. F. April 9th 1921. Whereas it has pleased Almighty God to remove from our midst our beloved brother, Thomas H. Slaven, and we deem it fitting to place upon our records, and to let his friends know how much we miss him from our Brotherhood, and of the high regard in which he was held by our entire membership. Therefore, be it resolved that in the loss of our brother, we have parted with one of our most valuable members, and a staunch support of the Fraternity. It appears to us that he is almost indispensible, and in addition to this he was a good, true citizen, living up to, and respecting all our laws. We will miss him sadly, but in our grief...

SKEPTICISM OUT OF PUCE No Announcement of Scientific Discovery May Today Be Looked Upon as Fantastic. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
SKEPTICISM OUT OF PUCE No Announcement of Scientific Discovery May Today Be Looked Upon as Fantastic. That the butterfly contains within itself what Huxley would have called the promise and potency of the cure of tuberculosis and perhaps of other malignant plagues might seem fantastic proposition were it not for our memory of its antecedent, remarks the North American Review. It is now about 55 years since Pasteur perceived in the fermentation of beer and wine the principle which emboldened him to declare that we shoud one day learn to eliminate all communicable diseases from the world. Blot, Dumas and other veterahs of science were incredulous. But crying “Travaillier! tourjours travaillier!” the young master of them all proceeded to cure first the “sickness” of beer and wine, then the “silkworm disease,” then a formidable poultry - pestilence, then one of the deadliest plagues of cattle. Having thus worked his way up in the scale of life, he addressed himself by the same methods t...
TOBACCO USERS NOT IMMUNE Only Germs of Cholera and Meningitis Succumb to Smoke or Juice of Nicotine. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
TOBACCO USERS NOT IMMUNE Only Germs of Cholera and Meningitis Succumb to Smoke or Juice of Nicotine. Professor Puntoni of the University of Rome has performed a series of experiments by way of determining whether tobacco, smoked or chewed, would act as a disinfectant against disease germs. For the purpose he used t'uscany cigars, Macedonian cigareties smd “very strong chewing toacco.” He placed a piece of paper overed with a salve which contained iHe germs of cholera. Influenza, diphtheria. typhoid and meningitis in a glass jar and then filled the jar with smoke or covered the paper with tobacco juice, says New York Evening Post. He has arrived at the depressing conclusion that, except In the case of cholera and meningitis, tobacco is powerless in the presence of germs. As to typhoid and diphtheria, he exposed the bacilli to the strongest of smoke from Tuscany cigars for one hour, and they were as robust at the end of the experiment as at the beginning. As to tuberculosis, Professor...
SilK Chemises for Dusky Belles. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
SilK Chemises for Dusky Belles. Lurid purple silk chemises, size 52, are becoming popular with the dusky belles along the African Congo, according to an announcement by a Chicago mail order house. The firm’s foreign department announced the notification of safe arrival from Chief Angogo in the Belgian Congo of a recent order for such undergarments for 12 of the chief’s favorite wives. Because of the color and size, Jt was necessary to have them made to order. • '“The results are quite satisfactory, however,” the chief wrote. With the chemise order came funds for “shoes with watches In their toes,” rubber boots with copper toes, pink silk stockings and several hundred pounds of beads and brightly-colored cotton goods.
SATISFIED WITH DULL LIVES Siamese Require Little, and Have a Government Which Sees That They Get It, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
SATISFIED WITH DULL LIVES Siamese Require Little, and Have a Government Which Sees That They Get It, Bangkok, for all Its modern waterworks and trolley cars, Is a fairy-tale land, with a fairy-tale king, writes Florence Burgess Meehan in Asia Magazine. In Bangkok the king is a reality, not a figurehead. Two or three times a day whistles announce his approach along the street, as he takes the route to or from the goldenroofed palace and the audience hall two miles distant. Rama VI, Oxford graduate, playwright, poet and keen administrator — is perhaps the most absolute of all the raonarchs left on earth. He is an autocrat, but his government is more like an advanced state socialism than anything else. The state owns the main lines of the railroads, the oil fields, the forests and the mines. The street cars and waterworks and the lighting system of the capital are state property, and the king is the state. Siamese are satisfied with autocracy. Siam seems to be the happiest land in the ...
DAY OF HORSE ALMOST GONE increasing Use of Motor Apparatus Will Soon Make Him Only a Loving Memory. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
DAY OF HORSE ALMOST GONE increasing Use of Motor Apparatus Will Soon Make Him Only a Loving Memory. A defective flue had brought the fire department to Tenth and Tecuraseh streets. New, bright red motor apparatus came rushing up from a half-dozen firehouses. Presently a worn old hook and ladder truck, horsedrawn, appeared on the scene. It carried just the ladders the firemen needed to reach the fire. The crowd that gathered smiled at the picture. The old horses seemed to know' that they were playing an Important part, even In the presence of their enemies, the motor apparatus. It w r as a picture of a changing time. One by one the motor machines turned away, leaving the horse machine to finish the job. Somehow', the crowd moved toward the horses and, one by men, women and children, paused to stroke the manes or pat the noses of the faithful old beasts that now are fast passing to the Land of Memory. And, somehow, the horses seemed to know and understand. Their heads were not down, h...
National Museum Gets Opals. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
National Museum Gets Opals. The National museum In Washington has just received from Archie Rice, an opal expert in New York, 100 specimens of gem opal in the rough just as they come from the only opal mines in the United States. The opals are red, white, blue, black, brown, green and purple; two have replaced fossil wood, and three possibly fossil bones. The mine Is located in Humboldt county, Nevada, about a mile above sea level and some 200 miles inland from the Pacific; not very accessible, since the railroad town of Winnemucca is about 120 miles away. Because of the high ‘altitude, the ordinary water content of the opals is often injuriously affected when they are removed from the ground. Thus far, excavation for opals has gone only to a depth of 20 or 30 feet
Prickly Pear Worries Australians. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Prickly Pear Worries Australians. The kind of cactus which we called the “prickly pear” has become a firstclass nuisance in Australia.. It grows very fast, spreads with great rapidity and forms masses of vegetation so dense that the clearing^of ground once occuplecTDy fhtTplant is accomplished with utmost difficulty. Incidentally, It renders the land unavailable for agricultural purposes. In response to urgent request, our government Is sending to Australia, certain insects that prey upon the prickly pear. Hope is entertained that they may do enough damage to discourage the spread of the cactus plague In that part of the world.—Philadelphia Ledger.
Cheap Light. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Cheap Light. Science and Invention describes a recent achievement of a French scientist, who has successfully tried out in his house a scheme for operating electric lights without cost. Upon his water-supply pipe he has fitted a high-speed water turbine, which delves a dynamo, charging a storage battery. Every time a faucet is turned on in the house the stream of water is put to work at loading the battery, which furnishes current for the lights. “It is simply utilizing energy that is ordinarily wasted,” says the inventor. —Philadelphia Ledger.

Overzealous. “What Is your idea of a grafter?” “A grafter,” replied Senator Sorghum, "is a man who, when he finds an opportunity knocking at his door, Isn't satisfied to give it a cordial welcome, but insists on dragging it in and beating the life out of It.”
"DEAD" SIX YEARS American Tells of Suffering in Mexican Sait Mines. Only Recently Gained Freedom, and Did Not Know Anything of the World War. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
"DEAD" SIX YEARS American Tells of Suffering in Mexican Sait Mines. Only Recently Gained Freedom, and Did Not Know Anything of the World War. The World war had been fought and won, and he did not know a word about it. He was Mate Maguire, an engineer and graduate of the Boston Institute of Technology, who for six years was a soldier of fortune in the rebel army of Mexico, and for five years and eight months a prisoner at hard labor in the Mexican salt mines, during which he never saw the light of day or a newspaper of any kind. Maguire reached Tacoma a short time ago after a thrilling escape from the mines, in which he had been condemned to life imprisonment after his capture by the Mexican federals. He has just taken a position In the county* engineer’s office In Tacoma, says a Tacoma letter. Young and adventurous, Maguire joined a troop of men from the United States who were fighting under Madera. He became second in command of all the troops and was part of the time directly unde...
Use of Peat as Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Use of Peat as Fuel. The burning of peat has an Individual ns well as a national significance. For Instance, consider this from Peter Christianson, professor of metallurgy in the school of mines at the University of Minnesota: “There is scarcely a farmer In the state of Minnesota, except In the southeastern, western and extreme northwestern portions, who could not make himself Independent of a coal supply for heating purposes by preparing and using peat from his own farm. Incidentally, peat is found In sixtyfour of the eighty-six counties of the state. Other states have lots of it, too. “All the man needs to do Is to take spade, cut the peat from his bog In blocks and dry It, He can do it cheaper than he can pay $l5 or $2O for coal, too. My father burned peat for years here In Minnesota and it made an excellent fire. Farmers are using It for fuel in some sections of the state, particularly those from the old countries, who are acquainted with Its use.
Valuable Invention. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Valuable Invention. A naval Invention first used during the war may revolutionize the task of the pilot. A cable seventeen miles in length is now laid from Portsmouth harbor to the Warner light on the channel side of the Isle of Wight. The cable is charged with a high frequency current, by means of which a ship fitted with a receiving apparatus may locate its position and find Its way. Such an invention, if adopted in all the more difficult ports of navigation routes, would not only add greatly to the safety of ships, but save much valuable time that Is now lost. —London Daily Chronicle.
