HILLIEST OF WORLD’S CITIES San Francisco, With Its Many Elevations, Outranks Any of the Genters of Population, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
HILLIEST OF WORLD’S CITIES San Francisco, With Its Many Elevations, Outranks Any of the Genters of Population, As to the question of the seven seas, perhaps It Is contributing a little to slmlliar geographical information to refer to the seven hills of Home and to say that many descriptions of San Francisco incorrectly speak of “San Francisco on her seven hills.” As a matter of accuracy, says the writer of a letter to the editor of the New York Uerald, San Francisco is tiie hilliest of the world’s large cities. Occupying the end of a fifty-mile-long peninsula, which is flanked on the ocean side by the Pacific and on the inland side by the southern arm of San Francisco bay, the city itself covers a rumpled, hilly area of approximately 30,000 acres, as compared with the 14,0(X) acres of Manhattan island. The city contains not just seven hills but a total of forty-four. The highest of them, Mount Davidson, is 907 feet. Two at the apparent end of the main business street, under which th...
Twins and Quadruplets. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Twins and Quadruplets. Once in a while one reads about a birth of quadruplets. Very rarely quintuplets are born, and there have even been instances of sextuplets. When four or more babies come into the world at a birth, almost never do more than three of them survive. A tendency to the production of twins is undoubtedly hereditary; it runs in families. A woman whose mother and grandmother have borne twins may fairly be expected, if married, to bring one or more pairs into the world. That curious armored mammal, the armadillo, common in Texas and Mexico, nearly always produces four young at a birth; and the most remarkable thing about them is that they are “Identical” quadruplets—l. e., produced by the splitting of a single fertilized cell. The phenomenon of splitting is known to occur only In the armadillo and in man. Identical human twins (produced by a single cell) are very exceptional, but not extremely rare. They are in effect duplicates of one individual, and might almost be sa...

The marriage market Is a recognized Institution among the Konyama people of southwestern Africa.
