MUST PAY TRIBUTE TO ART Not in Admiration, But in Current Coin, Is the Edict of the French Authorities. After all these years of luxurious idleness the Venus de Milo must become a wage earner. The authorities of France have so decreed. And not only Venus, but Mona Lisa and all the other celebrities gathered in the Louvre, and in the Luxembourg and galleries .as well. For the fiat iif.s gone forth recently that hereafter those who have been accustomed to visit the museums of Paris day after day, finding their treasures free as air, must pay an admission fee. If you want to go to admire Venus in her Vj cr in son velvet seclusion you must pay for the privilege. To be sure, she is worth any price, you must admit.

Rothschild's Best Tip. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Rothschild's Best Tip. In 1871 a friend approached Baron Rothschild, the great financier, who was a firm believer in the maxim “Buy when everybody else is selling and sell when others are buying,” and asked what the banker considered a first-class investment, “Buy French rentes,” said Rothschild ; “you can get them cheaply now.” French bonds were then selling at (53. “But the streets of Paris are running with blood," objected his friend. “That’s the-reason you can buy them cheaply,” replied the money baron. A quarter of a century later in 1896 these bonds w T ere selling at 105 and were considered ns perhaps the most conservative investment in the world. —Wall Street Journal.
Flier's Good Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Flier's Good Work. For revealing details hidden from horizontal observation, the value of the “bird’s-eye” view was demonstrated anew in lowa not long ago. The attention of a flier, circling about near Des Moines, was caught by various ribbons of smoke arising from apparently deserted regions, and closer inspection revealed a number of autos hidden in the brush ; says Popular Mechanics Magazine. When the airman returned with a companion and made a landing, a large copper still was discovered, attended by four men and fed with corn from a wagon.
The Matrimonial Kind. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
The Matrimonial Kind. “The men’s wear department is two aisles to the left, sir,” said the officious floorwalker. “We are having a special sale of collars today.” “I don’t want any collars,” said the meek-looking man who was waiting for his wife. “I’ve been wearing a pretty stiff one for twenty years.” “The same collar, sir?” “The same. A preacher put it on me.” —Birmingham Age-Herald.
Pecks of Diamonds. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Pecks of Diamonds. During the year 1919 South Africa exported 1,124 of diamonds. This quantity represented just about 125 quarts. This vast quantity of precious stones reduced to terms of bushels would equal a trille less than four, or what would be two ordinary grain bags full of them. Naturally the stones included a great number of very large ones as well as many medium-sized and small ones. —Philadelphia Ledger.

MUSTXSE FOUR LANGUAGES Advertisers -In Turkey Necessarily Under a Handicap That Amounts to a Good Deal. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
MUSTXSE FOUR LANGUAGES Advertisers -In Turkey Necessarily Under a Handicap That Amounts to a Good Deal. In order to advertise in Constant!** nople it Is necessary to use four languages. The market Is hard to cultivate, but newspapers give good results there. The population of Constantinople is very cosmopolitan, and all the foreigners speak their own language and read their own newspapers, writes Trade Commissioner Eliot G. Mears. To reach the public in general, advertisements should be published in newspapers of at least four languages. However, the best results are obtained by publication In Turkish newspapers, for, on the one hand, the Turkish population is most numerous, and on the other the Turkish reader is more susceptible to the claims of advertisements than are Europeans and Armenians. It has been found by experience that advertising In newspapers gives very good results in Constantinople, especially if it is pushed vigorously. No advertising is carried on tramcars. Street ...
MONOPOLY LOST BY GERMANY American Chemists Are Now Producing the Rare Sugars Required for Scientific Purposes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
MONOPOLY LOST BY GERMANY American Chemists Are Now Producing the Rare Sugars Required for Scientific Purposes. Not least among the triumphs of the new American chemical industry has been the production of the rare sugars, so long a German monopoly. The sugars were called for by the small hospitals, as they are required in small amount in bacteriological laboratories —one of them, for instance, being the most sensitive stimulent of typhoid growth, while others serve in the detection of cholera germ. The Infinite care necessary to prepare them in a state of absolute purity makes their cost seemingly enormous. The most expensive rare sugar catalogued is stated by Drug and Chemical Markets to be dulcitol at $375 a pound, while mannose is worth $l4O a pound. This is a delicate and delicious sweet derived from manna, which is secreted in thin scales from certain trees and shrubs, and with which the children of Israel were miraculously fed during their wanderings in the wilderness. Xylose,...
Better Weather Forecasts. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Better Weather Forecasts. Weather forecasts for months ahead will be possible within a few years as a direct result of solar observations, R. M. Stew T art, assistant director of the Dominion observatory, told the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. The sun is the great influence over varying weather conditions on the earth, and recent observations of it have led to the belief that observatories will be able to predict with accuracy the general trend of weather for six months or even a year ahead, he said. To be able to foretell the amount of precipitation and the general temperature for several months in advance may take 50 or even 100 years of observation, he added, but expressed the confidence of the observatory that this end would be reached.
German “Thoroughness.” [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
German “Thoroughness.” Max Walter, head of a boys’ training school in Frankfort, tells the following story by -way of illustrating German thoroughness: A venerable teacher in one of Germany’s preparatory schools was distractedly ambling about his study one day when he noticed a stray piece of paper. Picking it up he saw that it was a Latin composition from one of his devoted disciples. On looking at it more closely he detected an error which he had overlooked. Seating himself at his desk, he dipped his pen in good red ink and made the necessary correction. He then folded the paper into a neat roll, stuck it in the fire, and with It lighted his pipe.
Belgians Teach Farming. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Belgians Teach Farming. The Belgian government has hit upon a novel scheme of teaching the farmers of the country better methods of farming, says Motor. The idea of a school for farmers is not new, but the idea of taking the school to the farmer by means of a motor caravan is certainly novel. The school building consists of three unit§, one powered with a gasoline motor; in short a building section on a motor truck. With this powered unit go two trailers and the three rolled into position and joined together makes the commodious and convenient classroom.
Cat Goes 600 Miies in Wheel [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Cat Goes 600 Miies in Wheel A kitten crawled inside the rim of a big flywheel at the Great Northern mills at Burlington, Neb., and fell asleep. The mill pet was unnoticed and the giant machinery was set in motion. The wheel whirred about with the kitten inside for nine hours, held to its perilous position by the running of the wheel. The kitten was still alive when the machinery was slopped for the night. It was estimated it had traveled GOO miles.

The Variously Valuable Shark. Sharks are now prized for skin by manufacturers of shoes and leather articles.

The liver of the shark yields upon boiling with water a valuable oil, used in making glue, soap, paints and medi* cines. The meat is white,ignembling halibut, and is edible.
WOM£(l AS “PAMPERED TOYS" Distinguished French • Abb* Makes Some £harp Commentaries on Sex Relations in America. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
WOM£(l AS “PAMPERED TOYS" Distinguished French • Abb* Makes Some £harp Commentaries on Sex Relations in America. American women expect (very rightly) from their husbands the same attention which French husbands receive from thetr wives; The American husband expects nothing, and for what he receives the Lord makes him truly thankful, writes Ernest Dlnnet, in Harper’s. “We are pampered toys,” an American lady told me in a distinctly resentful tone, “but we only know it when our husbands, after keeping every trouble from us, suddenly die.” If the abstraction called the American woman could be met with, I should ask her whether she really likes to see a dozen men in her drawing room watch her the whole evening and bob up with military precision the moment she half rises to ring the bell; whether she would not prefer her escort to think of what he is saying to her instead of concentrating on where she walks, skipping to the unprotected side of her the whole time; or whether she likes bei...
RARE FRUITS IN PHILIPPINES Two That Are Said to Be Delicious and Unknown in the Rest of the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
RARE FRUITS IN PHILIPPINES Two That Are Said to Be Delicious and Unknown in the Rest of the World. Among the productions of the Philippine islands are two delicious fruit* almost unknown in the rest of the world. One of these Is the durian, whose remarkable qualities were descanted upon by Alfred Russel Wallace during his explorations in the Malay archipelago. It grows on a lofty tree somewhat resembling an elm, is about as large as a coconut, has a shiny shell, and contains a creamy pulp which combines some of the flavor of a delicious custard with those of a fine cheese. To eat durians, we are told by those who know, is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience. Americans in the Islands call the durian “the vegetable Limburger cheese.” The other rare fruit spoken of Is the raangosteen, said to be the only fruit that the governor general of the islands has never tasted. The exquisitely flavored liquid It contains cannot be preserved for shipping abroad.
Circulating the Scriptures. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Circulating the Scriptures. The 1919 issues of the American Bible society were 3,752,309 volumes. The sun never sets on the representatives of this society, which asserts that some one is busy every hour of the day and every day of the year circulating the Scriptures. This total means that seven volumes were issued every minute of ervery hour of every day of the year. The issues of 1919 were the smallest since 1911; chiefly because of after war conditions. The average of annual issues for the last ten years has been over 5,000,000 volumes. For the period of the war, 1914-1919, it was over 5,870,000, which means that on an average 11 volumes of Scriptures were issued every minute of the years of the war by the American Bible society.
New Illuminator. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
New Illuminator. Prof, Alexander Silverman has invented a new illuminator for the microscope, whose special advantage is that It gives a very strong light upon the object examined, so that opaque and translucent bodies can be as readily studied as transparent ones. The top of the object on the side can be seen with all the variations of Its surface. It is particularly valuable in testing samples of metals since it shows the presence of blow boles and pits and much detail not hitherto visible. It is likewise useful to textile experts since it shows the threads of a fabric from every angle and Is also much appreciated by bacteriologists.
