Kings of Rome. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Kings of Rome. The kings of Rome were Romulus .who, according to conjecture, began to reign in the year 735 B. C., and was murdered by the senators. Titus Tatius, king of the Sabines, ruled jointly with Romulus six years; Nuraa Pompilius, son-in-law of Tatius; Tullus Hostilius, murdered by his successor; Ancus Martius, grandson of Nurna; Tarquinius Priscus; Servius Tullius; Tarquinius Superbus, who was the last king. The monarchy was abolished and a republican form of government established in 510 E C. Thereafter for the most part the chief executive officers of the republic were consuls, two being chosen each year. There w T ere many civil wars. The republic practically came to an end when Julius Caesar was made perpetual dictator in the year 48 B. C., but the empire is generally held to have commenced in the year 31 B. C., w T hen the supreme power became centered in Octavius, the grand nephew of Julius Caesar, who reigned as emperor with the title of Augustus Caesar. It was durin...
Their Ancestors, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Their Ancestors, A congressman said at a dinner: “I detest the war profiteer. One of these brutes bought last year a fine colonial estate in Virginia. He was showing a friend of mine over the grounds one day, and pointed to a quaint old private cemetery. “ ‘Those,’ he said, ‘are the graves of the former owner’s ancestors.’ “ ‘Our ancestors,’ his wife broke in, proudly, ‘are all living.’ ”

Still in Doubt. “I understand you are patronizing a new boarding house.” “Yes, it has been open only a few days.” “Who’s the star boarder?” “We don’t know yet. A haberdasher’s assistant told a story yesterday at which the landlady laughed heartily, but I noticed that he didn’t get any more butter than the rest of us.”— Birmingham Age-Herald.

ISLE OF ROMANCE Monte Cristo Famed in History and Legend. Rumor Thst Ex-President Wilson Would Make His Home There Awakened World's Interest. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
ISLE OF ROMANCE Monte Cristo Famed in History and Legend. Rumor Thst Ex-President Wilson Would Make His Home There Awakened World's Interest. Newspaper reports to the effect that ex-President Wilson had bought the island of Monte Crlsto in the Tuscan archipelago, as the home for his retirement, caused the Horae Epoca to publish an interesting account of this romantic island, six miles square, which the elder Dumas assigned as a title to the hero of his famous novel, “The Count of Monte Crlsto.” Ex-President Wilson, says the Home correspondent of the London Morning Post in summarizing the Epoca story, even had he so wished, could not have purchased the island, which Is the property of the Italian state, and has been for many years leased by the king of Italy. In the quiet days before the war, Victor Emmanuel 111 and Queen Elena used to pass some of their happiest hours at Monte Crlsto, far from the cares of state and not near the Italian peninsula—for Monte Cristo is by no means easi...
Wooden Shoes and Automobiles. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Wooden Shoes and Automobiles. At first thought there seems to be no relation between wooden shoes and automobiles. But one never can tell these days. Wooden shoes play an important part in auto building; indeed they probably reduce the cost of autos by six and three-tenths cents each—if figured out by an efficiency expert. At first the auto companies provided high rubber boots for the men w r ho did the work; but they soon found, says the Scientific American Monthly, that soap and rubber did not agree, and that the bill for rubber boots was quite an item. And when the war came on, and the price of rubber soared, indeed, it became quite appalling. So some bright young man got a lot of wooden sabots—brought from Holland or somewhere for actors—and tried them out. The workmen stuffed paper tightly in around their feet and encircled their legs with pieces of old slickers and found that the result was very satisfactory when worn with the usual apron.
Midget Motorcycle [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Midget Motorcycle Probably on account of the high cost of fuel Europeans are making use of a very small type of vehicle. The latest is a diminutive motorcycle, weighing only 32 pounds. The power plant of the little cycle is a single-cylinder aircooled engine of small bore and stroke. Drive is by means of sprockets and one chain to the rear wheel. No claims of excessive speed are made for the vehicle. No special garage space Is needed, as, owing to the small size and light weight of the machine, it can be easily carried Into the owner’s dwelling.
PILGRIM IN SPIRIT Brave Men All Who Sought Liberty in America. Justice in Writer's Claim That Every Family Tree Among Us Has Its Roots in a Mayf lower. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
PILGRIM IN SPIRIT Brave Men All Who Sought Liberty in America. Justice in Writer's Claim That Every Family Tree Among Us Has Its Roots in a Mayf lower. For three centuries and more a natural selection has been going on in Europe, sorting out the pioneers from those who preferred to let well enough (no matter how bad it happened to he) alone. The Pilgrims came to these shores to escape a religious tyranny, and in their wake millions have followed because they have preferred to seek the new world rather than put up with the abuses of the old. Great hosts have turned their backs on political oppressors because of belief in the freedom to be found here. Still other multitudes have fled from grinding economic conditions In order to find a fair chance in a country which stood to them as the land of opportunity. The Mayflower was not “launched by cowards,” and there have been mighty few cowards among our settlers. When a man and his wife sell all that they have and lead their family up the...
Japan's “Movie" Orators. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Japan's “Movie" Orators. The Japanese educational authorities are paying much attention to utilizing the “movies” for the edification of the younger generation, says East and West News. Some of the American “movie” stars are as much Japanese favorites as they are American favorites, Charlie Chaplin Is known even to the child who does not know the name of the Japanese premier. Every “movie” theater in Japan has its own orators who explain the pictures—especially the foreign ones—to the audience while the show is going on. Recently the authorities summoned all motion-picture operators attached to the picture halls In Tokyo and gave Instructions regarding the practice of the profession of film orators. As a result of the meeting the authorities decided to give a regular course of lectures for the benefit of film orators. The first of the series of lectures will be held early this year and will include such subjects as history and geography.
