Horse-Raising States. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Horse-Raising States. Ninety per cent of the 25,000,000 horses anti mules in the United States are on farms, and only about 10 per cent are in cities, towns, villages and other non-agricnltural work, according to advance figures of the 1020 census. Tt is natural that the ten central states of the great corn belt —Ohio, Indiana. Illinois, lowa, Missouri, Kansas. Oklahoma Nebraska a d the two Dakotas —wheie coarse grains premised in plenty, should be the gr- &gt;.t i l-rodr.e rearing approximately ■ ’rhs ’I the horses and nudes in ih&lt; country. The tatmers of this section producing horses and mules, supply their own needs, furnish work stock for adjoining fa runs where horses and mules are not reand, also the heavy drafters, wagon horses and oppressors wanted in cities, towns and villages, and the farm chunks for eastern states where horse and mule production is not so common.
Tricks in Ali Trades. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Tricks in Ali Trades. Notwithstanding the efforts of librarians at the Central library to cooperate with school teachers in keeping reviews of classics out of the hands of high school pupils, who have discovered that required classics need not be read if one only can get one's hands on reviews, the pupils contrive in some instances to get the books that mean shortcuts in their courses. All of which explains, according to librarians, why the Edinburgh Review was among the library’s “best sellers” last week. A Short ridge pupil discovered a synopsis and comments on “Mannion” and “Lady of the Lake” in some dusty volume of the Edinburgh paper published in 1800. Other pupils were “tipped off” and so the Edinburgh Review became suddenly popular.— Indianapolis News.
Home-Having Hearts Are Best [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Home-Having Hearts Are Best A bride with a bouse is a bride worth having in Berlin, the London Mail declares, and matrimony has boomed for house owneresses. Not even during the war years were there as many marriages as last year. During 1911 Berlin registers showed 37,798 marriages, while 53,691 took place in 1920. One of the chief attractions of marriage is the certainty of getting a house, for the authorities give the bride and bridegroom preference over ordinary people, and a bachelor anxious to settle down, finds that even in expensive Berlin married life with a home of your own is cheaper than hotel and restaurant life.

OEAUTY ITS LIE Under Wonderful Charm Zanzibar Conceals Deadly Rage, Great Metropolis of East Coast of Africa Attracts Wanderers From All Civilized Countries. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
OEAUTY ITS LIE Under Wonderful Charm Zanzibar Conceals Deadly Rage, Great Metropolis of East Coast of Africa Attracts Wanderers From All Civilized Countries. Aden, from which I had but recently departed, Is a man grown gaunt and rugged in honest strife; hut Zanzibar is a courtezan, whimsical, gay, sullen, presenting many aspects, writes William Ashley Anderson in Harper’s Magazine. Warm, rich, beautiful, concealing with dissembling art its sinister spots, it lavishes its charms, intoxicates with its beauty, smothers with its opulence; or suddenly, after a smoldering silence, it rends itself with rage. The screaming tornado rips its garments of verdure to tatters, bony-lingered pestilence goes leering down Its dark alley ways, fever shakes the life out of Its victims. And afterward, the bright sun sparkles upon the rainwashed foliage, and the island smiles again with the innocent radiance of-d maiden. ** Zanzibar town .he metropolis of the east coast It is Home to the dusky pilgrim; ...
Repairing a Buckled Ship. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Repairing a Buckled Ship. In the great explosion at Halifax the British ship Curaca had her baric broken. When the vessel was reheated it was found that she was buckled to the extent of nine feet two inches at the bow and six feet six inches at the stern. In that condition, says the Scientific American, she was temporarily mini red and brought to New York, where she was put in dry dock, and the water was pumped out until she touched the kev’ hl cJLv ' slaps. Next, the plating on both sides of the ship was cut at the point where the vessel had buckled, and more water was pumped out, until both ends settled gently down upon the keel blocks and t iio- vessel was once more straight. The task of joining the parts was comparatively simple.

An unusual aud most elaborate Chinese wedding ceremony which took place in Rangoon recently was that of the daughter of Liu Chiu Thong, Chinese merchant and shipowner. The palace of the Chinese merchant is known as “Dreamland.” Here, according to a recent article, he lives with all his sons and daughters aud brothers and sisters and cousins and aunts and all other relatives who can show, rL'-jV**'! l ,_claim to relationship.

She was dressed in magnificent robes and wore a gold crown eight inches high, which even in the palmiest king and queen days was considered to be some height for a crown. But this particular crown extended in boch directions, as it were, for all jarountJ i...
SOME LOGIC; LITTLE REASON Examination Papsrs Turned in by Youngsters Proved They Gave Thought to Questions. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
SOME LOGIC; LITTLE REASON Examination Papsrs Turned in by Youngsters Proved They Gave Thought to Questions. “Tell me all you know about centaurs.” The response of one boy to this demand in a recent examination was as follows: “A centaur was ancient cavalry and archery all in one piece. He could not be knocked out of his saddle because he didn’t have any, being the same person as his horse. If he needed a stable he did not need a tent, I do not know which, and if he needed forage he did not need rations, or if he needed rations he did not need forage.” Evidently the youngster who gave that reply was of a military inclination, and had thought out for himself the advantages of centaurs on the fighting line. It was funny, but not unintelligent. Less original, with only one little slip indeed to mar its accuracy, is* the version of the schoolboy of the story of the Gorgons. “The Gorgons,” he began confidently, “were three sisters that lived in the islands of the Uesperides, somewhere in ...
