INDIAN STORY OF CREATION Menabcshu Made the Earth, According to the Legend—Great Lakes Are Bear Tracks. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
INDIAN STORY OF CREATION Menabcshu Made the Earth, According to the Legend—Great Lakes Are Bear Tracks. Menaboshu, according to the legend of the Chippewa Indians, was the creator of all things. He avowed one day that he would make the earth. But the almighty creator did not find his task easy, for he wanted to make the earth larger than any other tiling. Truly he rounded the soil between his powerful hands, until It grew into a great ball; but, freed from their touch. It fell in a heap. In this way he tried again and again; each time he saw the mass crumble. Then Menaboshu mixed water with the soil to form mud; and, besides, moulded it about a great rock, when behold —a still larger ball. The mass, at last, kept the chosen shape. The creator, pausing to rest from his toil, beheld bis matchless work. Menaboshu next undertook to devise the many living things, which dwell on the earth. Before the surface of the giant ball had time to dry, in fact, the lusty god began to make the anima...
The Power of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
The Power of Silence. There Is nothing in tills world which works to greater advantage than to be silent. No one likes to be Ignored. It hurts like the mischief to have an antagonist throw up a barricade against which we have no power. The moment the other fellow Is silent, that minute ail detailed plans of attack are worthless. The only thing one can do is to be silent also, and there you are! Though but an armistice, the action of coniiict is over. The one who refuses to converse may be one you have no use for. Still it bothers you. You are annoyed, your pride is injured at the realization that the one you hold in scorn has the opportunity to Ignore you. The moment you resort to tantalizing banter you acknowledge the final defeat. If you fall in line and imitate you compliment. The secret is to steal the thunder first. If one you love keeps silent it hurts twice. Once because you have no idea how deeply you may have offended to bring down upon your head such punishment, and again ...

SHE ‘BID HER BIT’ Soldier’s Tribute to Faithful Dumb Buddy. Will Appeal to Others bv.«ides Tnose Who in France Made Their Deeds Immortal. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
SHE ‘BID HER BIT’ Soldier’s Tribute to Faithful Dumb Buddy. Will Appeal to Others bv.«ides Tnose Who in France Made Their Deeds Immortal. When 1 first saw Joan In 1915, writes Major F. N. Lund in the Lon don Times Magazine, she was already an old soldier, standing in a muddy, bleak field near the ruined village of Elverdinghe. She was only a tj T pical English shire cart horse that had “come through the retreat” with several other horses in our string. I remember seeing little of her during those first strange weeks In our forward billet; but when we moved back into rest I saw at the end of a column of steaming horses Joan and her team mate, Darby. That summer we lost horses. We moved slowly forward and sometimes backward, day and night in action, with the horses never far away in open fields. With the autumn came rain, mud and cracked heels, and in the village of Souastre Darby had to be led away with open gashes on both hind feet. Joan worked badly that day and ate scarcely anythi...

Clock Tells the Distance. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Clock Tells the Distance. By sounding with sound waves instead of a steel cable a Frenchman has been able to determine the depth of the ocean in a few seconds, where the ordinary process requires minutes and hours. In contrast to the usal equipment of cable, reels and donkeyengine he equips himself simply with a quantity of high explosive, a microphone, and a chronometer. Detonating a charge of explosive in the wake of his moving vessel, he hears in his microphone both the noise of detonation and the echo produced by reflection from the bottom. Reading the time interval from the chronometer and knowing the speed of sound in water, he is able to calculate the ocean’s depth at that point. Tests have shown that the method yields sufficiently accurate results for practical purposes.
Sawdust Taking Coal. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Sawdust Taking Coal. One of the most recent attempts to solve the heating question consists of a special stove which burns sawdust. The stove consists of a cylindrical casing provided with suitable holes for draft purposes, and a container which Is packed with sawdust. Once ignited the tightly packed sawdust is said to burn slowly and evenly, giving considerable heat. A single charge of sawdust burns twelve hours. The action, we are told, is very much the same as coal as far as smooth bflfnlng and the intensity of hear are concerned.

Couldn't Stand Motor Traffic, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Couldn't Stand Motor Traffic, Few Americans traveling from Durham to London, more than 200 miles, realize that the road on which iheir car is moving was originally surveyed and constructed by the Romans. It was called Watllng street, and it ran north to that Roman wall along the Cheviot hills which kept out the invading Rlcts anil Scots. Having a perfect foundation, —the road was easily surfaced and maintained through all those centuries. But the motor car made necessary its complete reconstruction. It was the same with the more famous Appian Way out of Rome. The destructive suction of rubber tires demolished in ten years a monument which had stood up under the wheel traffic of 2,000 years.—Wall Street Journal.
BADGE GAVE HIM DISTINCTION Persian Youngster Had Method In "Madness” Which American Nurse Couid Not Understand. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
BADGE GAVE HIM DISTINCTION Persian Youngster Had Method In "Madness” Which American Nurse Couid Not Understand. Among my patients at the dispensary in Teheran was a small boy with a charming and impudent face, "writes Mary W. Griscom in Asia Magazine. He wore the sleeves and part of the back of a coat and enough of a pair of loose trousers to hitch up with both hands occasionally. When I asked him where he lived, he said, “Anywhere.” At every question he simply shrugged his shoulders, unclasped his hands and repeated, “Who knows?” The nurse thought he was five. One of the patients guessed eight. Hut I insisted that so much philosophy could not have been developed under 10, and, since he had his 12-year molars. I put him down at that age. He refused to remain in any permanent shelter and preferred to live like a little gypsy. He had contracted typhus on the street and recovered on the street. One of the members of the Near East commission had referred him to me because of some ugly s...
