SPOKE ‘DMT LOUD’ Presidential Language Emphatic in the Extreme. Under the Circumstances, However, It Will Be Understood, Not intended for Publication. Cleveland was not a master of scholarly eloquence, like Wilson, or of vigorous epigram, like Roosevelt; yet on occasion he could be fluent and on occasion witty. Of the two anecdotes that follow the first shows his fluency, the second his wit. Mr. Jefferson Winter, namesake of the famous actor, Joseph Jefferson, who was Cleveland’s Intimate friend and fellow angler, tells the first story -Cray Gables, the Cleveland home, and Crow’s nest, the home of the Jeffersons, were not far apart. While Mr. Winter was visiting at Crow’s Nest the men went fishing. Toward sundown, he says, we went from the bass grounds where we had been fishing to a little lake hidden in woods, owned by Jefferson and stocked by him with trout. There we were joined by John G. Carlisle, Cleveland’s secretary of the treasury; tall, lank, pale-faced, saturnine, garbed i...

As he broke Into the spirit of the affair he grew less fearful, and us they glided across the floor he glanced down at her face and said: “Darling, I believe I could dance with you forever —just like this. Could you?” “Yes, dear; but even a sidewalk will wear out some time,” she answered.
Putting One Over. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Putting One Over. Within a few miles of Indianapolis, a father and son owned adjoining farms. The father, old and experienced in the ways of farming, was In the habit of holding himself up as a model to the son In the way of early production of vegtables for the market. One summer each had a large held of tomatoes on either side of the highway. Coming to market early In the season, and seeing some fine tomatoes the soti conceived the idea of “fooling” father. “Taking home a fine hig tomato, he got a wire hairpin and pinned the tomato In a most conspicuous place, on a tomato vine whose fruit had not yet begun to ripen. Soon the father spied It and said, excitedly: “Say, did you know that your tomatoes are getting ripe already?” “Oh, yes,” replied the son. unconcernedly, “aren’t yours?” The father admitted that his crop had not begun to ripen, and after a moment’s silence he said: “By heck, you beat me this time.”
Aiding Blinded Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Aiding Blinded Soldiers. More than twenty-three thousand men with damaged sight were discharged from the British army at the end of the war, according to the authorities of St. Dunstan’s Hostel for Blinded Soldiers and Sailors. The organization has been working for five years on the problem of rehabilitating thesq men, and thousands of blinded men have been returned to productive Industry. The men are taught massage, poultry, farming, mat making, basket making, boot repairing, joinery and music. Jinny efficient stenographers, telephone operators and typists have been trained at St. Dnnstan’.s and are now working at regular employment In London offices.

The organization also extends to the colonies, and St. Dunstan’s men are now to be found in every part of the world.
France Dooms Wild Boars. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
France Dooms Wild Boars. There are still considerable numbers of wild boars and even wolves in France. This was revealed in a recent discussion in the chamber of deputies on the estimates for the ministry of agriculture. Two deputies affirmed that wild boars cause much damage, while a third constituted himself their champion, asking if it was not intended to leave a few. Before the war hoar hunting was a favorite, although a somewhat dangerous, form of sport, and at Christmas time it was usual for boar steaks to be served in restaurants. Even last Christmas one or two boars made their way to the kitchens of restaurants and hotels.

WOMEN DIG OUT IRON ORE Dangerous Work Done by Females in Africa, While Men Run Smelter* Above Ground. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
WOMEN DIG OUT IRON ORE Dangerous Work Done by Females in Africa, While Men Run Smelter* Above Ground. Not far from the Oti river In Togoland, Africa, there is a hill from which iron is mined by the natives. The miners live in the nearby town of Bunjell. This town, which Is the center of the Iron Industry of the district, Is far different iii appearance from any iron town we ii\ tills country ever saw. It is nothing more.than a little collection of huts. These huts are not made of wood. They are constructed in the “beehive” form familiar to African travelers. They are circular at the base, much like tubs, up to the height of a man’s head, then they run together—like the tops of circular tents —at a goodly height. The iron ore, as we have said, is mined from the neighboring hill. The mine Is about 1,000 feet up the hillside. There is no machinery to take out the ore. It is “grubbed out” with a curious kind of hoe-shaped tool, and these hoes are worked, not by men, hut by women. Into t...
Costumes of the Valleys. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Costumes of the Valleys. In some parts of the Black Forest, writes Mrs. Alfred Sidgwick In her book “Home Life In Germany,” every valley has its own costume, so that you know where a man lives by the clothes he wears. There is a valley where all the girls are pretty, and on festive occasions or for church they wear charming, transparent black caps with wings to them. There is another valley where the men are big-boned and black-a-vised, with square, shaven chins and spare bodies, rather like the English legal type; and they go to church in scarlet breeches. long black velvet coats and black threecornered hats. Their wcmeu-ioik wear gay-colored skirts and mushroom hats loaded with heavy pompons. In Cassel there are very curious costumes to be seen still on high days and holidays; from Berlin people go to the Spreewald to see the Wendish peasants; and in Bavaria there is still some color and variety of costume. But everywhere you hear that these costumes are dying out. The new generat...
Illustrating Time’s Change [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Illustrating Time’s Change The gift of 920,000 by the Hudson’s Bay company to McGill university recently emphasizes the changed attitude of the old fur corporation toward civilization. Time was when it knew no university but the wilderness and no business but furs. Chartered in the days of Charles 11., the company’s history for 200 years was the history of western Canada. Beginning with the first posts on Hudson bay, it came in time to be absolute lord of three-fourths of North America. The company’s contribution to McGill university is its recognition of the fact that education is the corner stone of national prosperity. It might have been content to remain a monarch of the wilderness. But it has broadened its horizon and is now throwing its vast energies and resources into the work of developing Canada.
Sassafras Popular. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Sassafras Popular. The sassafras still holds its own as a world flavor producer. As well as its taste, its perfume inhaled when leaves are crushed in the fingers, makes the bush worth singling out. It Is the only shrub in northeastern United States which has three patterns for its leaves, not having decided which to adopt. In Its family group the benzoin, under the alias of “spice bush,’’ the shrub whose yellow flowerets suddenly plating bare branches in early spring with the richest 18-carat gold, so that it Is then in reality “The Golden Bough,” yields a characteristic taste, more refined and delicate perhaps than the emphatic sassafras.

DIRECTOR APPEALS M II Ofl. FUND MR. DOBIE ASKS VIRGINIANS TO GIVE LIBERALLY AS DRIVE NEARS END ONLY $758,000 RAISED State Has Given Four Hundred And Forty-one Thousand, One Hundred And Forty Of Its $.1,300,000 Quota. This week ushers in the final month of work for the University of Virginia Centennial Endowment Fund. Organization forces all over the country are starting down the home stretch with $775,000, a little less than one-third of the $3,000,000 national quota raised. Of this amount, Virginia has contributed $441,140, more than one-third of the State’s $1,300,000 apportionment.

Senior Carter Glass and others interested in the Fund, believe that the Old Dominion will not let this great educational movement fail without a struggle. Believing that Virginians, impelled by State pride and loyalty to the home university, will redouble their efforts in...
Advance Guard of Tremors. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 6 May 1921
Advance Guard of Tremors. In the theory that the movements of the earth’s crust constituting an earthquake begin on a very small scale, to be followed later by the greater adjustments that do the damage, Orlis L. Kennedy of San Bernardino, Cal., believes that he can give earthquake warnings by observing the cracks in layers* of cement, put down In certain California districts. It is asserted that in this way Mr. Kennedy predicted the quake that destroyed part of Hemet and San Jacinto, Cal., something more than a year ago. He is now r planning to construct a ribbon of cement about a foot thick and 1,000 feet long for laboratory purposes.
