IS ANCIENT lAND Rhodesia at One Time Home of Large Population. Even Today, Mantle of Mystery Hanging Over the Country Has Not Been Completely Lifted. We car. now turn to the really romantic side of the Rhodesian mineral deposits. One of the favorite pilgrimages of the tourist is to the Zimbabwe ruins, located about 17 miles from Victoria in southern Rhodesia. They are the remains of an ancient city and must at various times have been the home of large populations. There seems little doubt that Zimbabwa was the work of a prehistoric and long-forgotten people. Over it hangs a mantle of mystery which the llctionist has employed to full and at times thrilling advantage, Isaac F. Marcosson writes in the Saturday Evening Post. In this vicinity were the King Solomon mines that Rider Haggard wrote about in what Is perhaps his most popular book. Here came Allan Quatermain in pursuit of love and treasure. The big hill at Zimbabwe provided the residence of She, the lovely and disappearing lady...
My Car and the Night. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
My Car and the Night. While driving my car through the stormy night, my little boy’s head falls against my shoulder. He sleeps, and a great surge of emotion rises in me. When I saw him at play, when I heard his merriment, no such intimate tenderness overflowed my heart. Now, though I only feel the light pressure of his small body in the dark, how keenly I realize my fatherhood. What a gladness it is! I am made strong by his weakness. Yes, I am strong. I am proud of my strength to struggle, and sometimes to win. But when, in my turn, I shall grow weary and fall asleep on the shoulder. I wonder, shall I, too, inspire the Great Tenderness? I wonder Who or What drives the Car through the Darkness? —Edmund Vance Cook in Leslie’s.
Explains Firefly’s Light. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Explains Firefly’s Light. A Princeton physiologist is said to have solved the problem of the firefly’s light. The chemistry of the process is difficult enough. In effect, the luminous substance burns in oxygen like any fuel, only instead of forming carbon dioxide and water, as other luminants do, the products of the combustion are of such a nature that when allowed to stand away from air, they change back into the original substance, and are ready to be burned again. The experimenter obtained the “light without heat” in a test tube, which glowed when shaken.

SHORTEST, BUT MOST NOTED February Is Supreme Above All Oth. ers as the Natal Month of the World's Famous. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
SHORTEST, BUT MOST NOTED February Is Supreme Above All Oth. ers as the Natal Month of the World's Famous. Was there ever such a month as February? It would seem that though it is the shortest month In the year It has crowded into its 28 days more birthdays of worldwide celebrities than any of the other 11 months. No less than 23 people of note have seen the light of day for the first time in that month. And their range is wide. February is not partial to any particular kind of celebrity. On February 1, 1870, Commodore David Porter was born. On the third of the month, 1800, Felix Mendelssohn came into the world. On the same day, but in ISII, Horace Greeley followed. On the fifth. 1788, Sir Robert Peel was born. The birthdays of other notables occur in this order: February G, 1750 —Aaron Burr. February 6, 1838—Sir Henry Irving. February 7, 1812 —Charles Dickens.

Rodents Do Much Damage. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 22 April 1921
Rodents Do Much Damage. Next to the insects, the animals that are chiefly harmful to man are the rodents, an order of mammals often regarded as wholly noxious. David E. Lantz of the United States geological survey finds that the rodents of North and Central America Include about 1,350 species of 77 genera, and of these, 750 species of 44 genera inhabit the United States and Canada. Many of these, living in deserts, mountains and swamps, do not come in contact with cultivated soil. They cannot, therefore, be classed as injurious, and many of them are preparing the soil for future use, and there are other rodents that are doing useful work in destroying grasshoppers and similar pests. Certain of the rodents, too, such as the beaver and muskrat, have an economic value as fur bearers. Native rodents include among harmful kinds the short-tailed field mice, white-foot-ed mice, cotton rats, kangaroo rats, pocket gophers, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, woodchucks and rabbits. The house mou...
