SEES TURKISH RULE AMUSING English Author Finds Funny Side to Life in Jerusalem Under the Cr^cent. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
SEES TURKISH RULE AMUSING English Author Finds Funny Side to Life in Jerusalem Under the Cr^cent. The tradition of Turkish rule in Palestine as one finds it in Jerusalem is simply a Joke, declares G. K. Chesterton in his book, “The New Jerusalem.” All the stories about it arc Jokes and often very good Jokes. My own favorite incident is that which is still commemorated in the English cathedral by an enormous hole In the floor. The Turks dug up the pavement looking for concealed British artillery, because they had been told that the bishop had given his blessing to two cannons. The bishop had, indeed, recently appointed two canons to the service of the church, but he had not secreted them under the floor of the chancel. There was another agreeable incident when the Turkish authorities, by an impulsive movement of religious toleration, sent for a Greek priest to bury Greek soldiers, and told him to take his choice in a heap of corpses of all creeds and colors. But at once the most curi...

HARBOR FOR SHIPS OF AIR Artist Has Given Us Picture of Probability of the Not Far Distant Future. Something very unique in the way of a terminal station for future traveling Is suggested in Flight. It is a picture by Roderic Hill showing an aerial terminus, or the “White Moonline,” raised aloft over a seaport. It is not a flat airdrome situated on the surface, but a huge circular structure which towers far above the tallest buildings of the city. On its topmost circumference, platforms swinging on a circular railed bed are carried by two rotating arms on which aero liners light and from which they take oft’. On the left of this great tower is a pdssenger elevator with two cars carrying passengers to and from the embarking level. Inside this structure is a huge elevator for lowering the aero liners for refitting and repair, and in its mysterious depths we can picture workshops lit by flickering arclamps, wl-. re hundreds of mechanics work busily day and night. With such termini as th...

The more we try to get then! eliminated the more they thrive. Now the surest remover is a few geese. They prefer dandelion to anything else.

Shifting Sand Made Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Shifting Sand Made Trouble. The shifting of the sands of the seashore very often involves expensive litigation. In 1885 the counties of Atlantic and Burlington, of New Jersey, entered into an expensive litigation concerning the boundary between them. There w’as a dispute as to one of the corners of this boundary. It was stated to be, in the original survey, “the next inlet in the south side of Little Egg Harbor’s most southerly inlet, and thence along the seacoast to the line of partition between east and west Jersey.” But it could not be found in its original home when they went to look for it, thus bringing up to date the ancient saying about a rope of sand.

“TACTILISM” THE LATEST AH> Pictures Can Be “Seen” by Touch, I* Declaration Made by Inventor of New Fad. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
“TACTILISM” THE LATEST AH&gt; Pictures Can Be “Seen” by Touch, I* Declaration Made by Inventor of New Fad. Among the things that “have their day and cease to be,” artistic extravagances hold a prominent place. The wild vagaries of impressionists, cubists and futurists one by one eclipse what lias gone before. “Tactillsm” is the name of a new “art” invented by Signor Marinetti, the Italian futurist, who, recently, to a large audience of painters, art critics and society people in Paris, explained its principles. It Is a method of conveying impressions through the sense of touch, “which has hitherto been neglected by the arts.” Marinetti told how he had tried to establish a series of conventions, which could be easily learned, by which different touches would bring forth definite ideas. For instance, something rough, spiky and hot to the touch would give the idea of the Sahara. The seas would be conjured up by something smooth and cold, like silver paper, and Paris by a mixtur...
DESIGNED TO UPHOLD WEIGHT Elephant's Foot Is Enormous, Even When Compared With the Size of the Beast. > [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
DESIGNED TO UPHOLD WEIGHT Elephant's Foot Is Enormous, Even When Compared With the Size of the Beast. &gt; That twice around an elephant’s foot equals its height seems almost incredible, yet such is the fact, and a little reflection will show you that it Is not so wonderful as it appears to be. Things are large or small, comparatively, and if we could see the foot of an elephant by Itself, it would present a far-different appearance as to size from what it gives when overshadowed by the mountain of flesh it supports. The elephants In the Indian commissariat being dieted according to height require to be measured annually to determine the amount of food to which they are entitled. At present this is done by means of the ordinary standard with crossbar on top, but formerly it was done by placing a rope around the animal’s forefoot close to the ground, and multiplying the length so obtained by two. This measurement generally gives a quarter of an inch or so more, but never less...
Use of Peat as Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Use of Peat as Fuel. Few have realized that peat might replace coal and break to a large extent the dependence of some of the northern states upon distant coal mines. For several months a Minneapolis company has been engaged In the prep, aration of peat for fuel, said to be the only enterprise of its kind In the country. A machine has been perfected that digs, macerates and spreads out to dry 700 tons of wet peat in a day, or a Quantity sufficient to produce 100 tons of dry fuel. That’s how much peat contracts drying process. One man operates the machine. During the summer the machine was operated on a bog near Minneapolis, and peat, processed at the University of Minnesota, was burned with satisfactory results in a Minneapolis office building. A crusher plant, with a capacity of 500 tons of peat a day, has been built in Minneapolis during the winter to produce powdered peat, and In the spring ten peat digging machines are to be started on the Minnesota bogs.
Delivering the Goods. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Delivering the Goods. Edouard Belin, the inventor of photography by wire, said at a dinner in New York: “Of course, the transmission of photographs by wire was thought out before my time. But iny predecessors, though their theory was all right, could not put it lata practice. So nothing much came of their work, for an inventor’s backers insist on the prompt delivery of the goods. “An inventor can’t treat his backers as Whistler, the painter, treated his sitters. One of Whistler’s sitters,, you know, was in a hurry to have her portrait. Finally she said: “ ‘Now, Mr. Whistler, you’ve been at work on this portrait of mine a very long time. When will it be finished and delivered?’’ “ ‘Perhaps never, ma’am,’ said Whistler calmly.”

Kept It Up Too Long. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
Kept It Up Too Long. One day at a community sing we were instructed to sing a round. As this was the first round I had ever sung I had great difficulty In carrying the tune with my set. To make it easier, I put my fingers in my ears so that I wouldn’t hear the other divisions singing. Imagine my embarrassment when, taking my fingers from my ears, I discovered I had been singing about a minute after the others had stopped, and that they werfe all sitting there laughing at me,—Exchange.
NOW DEMAND PIPE POCKETS Philadelphia Newspaper Declares Upto-Date Women Insist on Them in Their Garments. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
NOW DEMAND PIPE POCKETS Philadelphia Newspaper Declares Up-to-Date Women Insist on Them in Their Garments. New suits will have to possess a novel feature If up-to-date young women are to be satisfied. The pipe pocket should be considered in creating all feminine garments of the future. Perhaps It is the effect of gaining the suffrage, so that they feel they must go on to wider, freer conquests, but, anyway, certain it is that the girls are getting tired of cigarettes and are turning to good old-fashioned corncob pipes as a solace for the languors of modernity, says the Philadelphia Ledger. Some time ago several young women in New York decided that cigarettes were too expensive, and that they ought to join the great world movement for financial conservation by substituting pipes for the more delicate joy. But at that time ordinary pipes were not tried, usually small, ladylike ones being selected. Now, however, substantial corncobs, cheap, picturesque and nonbreakable, are the favorit...
ANYWAY, PROPELLER IS GONE Dispute Now Is Whether It Was Torn, Bitten, or Blown Off, But It Is Missing. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 15 April 1921
ANYWAY, PROPELLER IS GONE Dispute Now Is Whether It Was Torn, Bitten, or Blown Off, But It Is Missing. What happened to the starboard propeller of the United Fruit liner Calanoares, recently arrived at New York from Central American ports and Havana, puzzled her skipper, officers and passengers, who discussed the mystery since the ship threw' a fit on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 19, in the placid Caribbean and started w'abbllug, heaving, pitching, tossing, rolling and doing other things that no healthy ship does all at the same time. Capt. Harry Spencer stopped the liner and the chief engineer examined the starboard propeller. He found that one of the blades had been torn, bitten or blown off. Some surmised that a sea serpent might have nibbled at tire propeller and others said outright there was no doubt a steel-eat-ing Caribbean shark had bitten off the blade. Captain Spencer derided these theories, declaring the blade had been blown off by the force of a subaqueous earthq...
