DENIES CROW IS ALL BAD Bird That May Be Said to Have Few Friends Finds a Defender in Eastern Writer. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 13 May 1921
DENIES CROW IS ALL BAD Bird That May Be Said to Have Few Friends Finds a Defender in Eastern Writer. Volumes have been written about the crow, remarks a writer in the Christian Science Monitor. He is famous —yes, and infamous, to not a few of his biographers. Thus he resembles Napoleon. Further, he resembles Napoleon in liis complete selfreliance, his cosmopolitanism, andJiis many-sidedness. The crow is our composite, or ideal bird. He is typical of the class* aves. Frequenting our average or general environment and climate, he has adapted himself to the- requirements of that average surrounding in an all-around manner. He is about a mean proportional in size between the bumming bird and ostrich. He can fly enough, walk enough, wade enough. His beak is long enough, strong enough, round enoygh, curved enough, so that little which is food defies his efforts at utilization. He does not object to hot summers, wet springs, dry autumns, and icy winters. And, in line with tills almost Grec...
– Temples Reveal Character. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 13 May 1921
- Temples Reveal Character. People with “bony” temples—the cheek and frontal bones almost covering the temple space—are stolid; nonImaginative and slow in thought and action. To set against those defects, the above type of temples is which is big, white and flanked with small, well-formed, ears. That is the statesman's temple, the author’s temple, the temple of the/‘big man.” Orators and noted preachers have this temple. The character indicated is justness, generosity, kindness and a great capacity for forgiveness. This,too, is the long-life . temple. Those with temples, which, owing to the shape of. the skull and the growth of hair, look high and unduly narrow, are geniuses, with great incentive power, but of erratic temperament. This type of temple is not usually a long-life one. &gt;

THOUGHT OUT BY JUVENILES Examination Papers in American Publie Schools Are Replete With Unconscious Humor. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 13 May 1921
THOUGHT OUT BY JUVENILES Examination Papers in American Publie Schools Are Replete With Unconscious Humor. Every once in awhile some school teacher reveals to the world some of the unconscious humor of her pupils us shown in their answer to questions in their school tests. One such answer sent by a schoolmarra of Springfield, S. D„ sounds like it miglit he a criticism oT mucji of tlie literature of the day, for the pupil remarks: “Sentiment is mostly of dust or other impurities that it may get and this usually settles at the bottom.” Another answer seems to disclose a serious disorder from which the moon is suffering, leading to the conjecture that what pseudo scientists have mistaken for efforts to signal the earth may he hut frantic calls for the doctor. The pupil says: N “The moon lias sort of blisters on it, some of them ha[ve busted and have formed deep crusts.” .“Rivers carry their load in solution and expansion,” but qualifies this disconcerting statement with another which s...
EXPERT CATCHING OF TURTLE Cuban Natives Rt-ly Upon Instinct of Species to Bring Them a Profitable Haul. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 13 May 1921
EXPERT CATCHING OF TURTLE Cuban Natives Rt-ly Upon Instinct of Species to Bring Them a Profitable Haul. In the neighborhood of Cuba a peculiar metlmd of securing turtles is pursued. The people train, or at least take advantage of the instincts of a certain species of fish, called by the Spanish reve (meaning reversed), because its back is usually taken lor its stomach, . It has an oval plate attached to Its head, the surface of which is traversed by parallel ridges. By this plate it can firmly adhere to any solid body it may choose. The boats which go in quest of the turtles each carry a tub containing a number of these reves. When the sleeping turtles are seen they are approached, and as soon as they are judged near enough a reve is thrown into the sea. Upon perceiving the turtle its Instinct teaches it to swing right toward the turtle and fix itself firmly upon the creature by means of its disk. Sooner would the reve allow itself to be-pul led to pieces than give up its grip. A ri...
