ANCIENT TALE OF CREATION According to the Chippewa Legend, Menaboshu Was the Originator of All Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
ANCIENT TALE OF CREATION According to the Chippewa Legend, Menaboshu Was the Originator of All Things. According to the legend of the Chippewa Indians, Menaboshu was the creator of all things. He avowed one day that he would make the earth. He rounded the soil between his powerful hands until it grew into a great ball. Then Menaboshu mixed water with the soil to form mud, and besides. molded it about a great rock, when, behold —a still larger ball, says Gershom Crane in the Boston Transcript. Menaboshu then undertook to devise the living things which dwell on the earth. The first bear escaped from its maker, leaped to the earth and bounded straightaway across the North American continent. But the land where the sprawling bear’s huge paws struck the earth was still so fresh and soft that they left deep tracks. These deep marks quickly filled with water. Scarcely had the frightened bear bounded away when the beautiful lakes—Superior, Michigan, Huron, Ontario and Erie —appeared, full t...
BEAUTY DESCRIBED BY POET Word Painting of Sunset on the Arno Brings the Scene Vividly to the Mind. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
BEAUTY DESCRIBED BY POET Word Painting of Sunset on the Arno Brings the Scene Vividly to the Mind. It was sunset on the Arno; far down the river, over mountain ranges where snow yet lingered, a warm tint, half rose and half amethyst, gleamed along the horizon; beside the low parapet that bordered the street, people were loitering back from their afternoon promenade at the Casino; here a soldier, now an Englishman on horseback, and then a bearded artist; sometimes an oval-faced contadina, the broad brim of whose finely woven straw hat flapped over eyes of mellow jet; and again a trig nurse with Saxon ringlets, dragging a petulant urchin along; and over all these groups and figures was shed the beautiful smile of parting day, and by them, under graceful bridges, flowed the turbid stream, the volume doubled by the spring freshets. I surveyed the panorama from an overhanging balcony, where I stood awaiting the appearance of a friend upon whom I had called. — Henry T. Tuckerman.
Most Ancient Weapon. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Most Ancient Weapon. Back In the dim reaches of prehistoric ages, no one packed a sword unless it was the saber-toothed tiger. But soon, primitive man began to evolve his crude cleavers out of every sort of material, from the jawbone with which Samson fanned the Philistines to the shining steel with which the Assyrians cracked down, “like a wolf on the fold.” Some very serviceable slashers were swung by the Greeks after they had exhausted their ammunition, which consisted of spears. One of their favorite modes of combat was to mount their chariots and dash by one another, chucking javelins. In the event no bull’s eyes were made, they would leap to the ground and draw their swords, the survivor, as in the case of the procedure of Achilles with Hector, making fast the body of the vanquished to the rear of bis chariot and ordering the charioteer in a clear, commanding voice, “Home, Jameus.”
Reading Versus Thinking. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Reading Versus Thinking. It is good to road, mark, learn — but it is better to inwardly digest. It is good to read, better to think —better to think one hour than to read ten hours without thinking. Thinking is to reading (if the hook read have anything in it) what rain and sunshine are to the seed cast into the ground the influence which maketh it bear and bring forth, thirty, forty, an hundredfold. To read is to gather into the barn or storehouse of the mind; to think Is to cast seed corn into the ground to make it productive. To read is to collect information; to think is to. evolve power. To read is to lay a burden on the back; but to think is to give to the feet swiftness, and the hands strength. Yet we have a thousand or ten thousand readers for one thinker, as the kind of books sought after iu circulating libraries bears witness.
The Razor in History. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
The Razor in History. The next time your razor slips remember that it was Scipio Africanus, the great Roman, who was the first to institute the custom of shaving daily. Which observation brings us to the subject of shaves and beards in general. Who took the first shave? Nobody knows. The answer to the question, who wore the first heard? is more simple. Adam, of course. Something Is known of the heard of Belshazzar, the ancient monarch who “made a great feast to 1000 lords.” Belshazzar used a curling iron and has frequently been pictured with a beard full of curls. To users of henna powder it ought to be a comfort to know this monarch used gold pevder on his beard.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
The Staunton Chamber of Comm erce, at ameeting held last week. took up a matter in which Highland is vi tally interested, nimely, the six-mile section of road at West Augusta now being graded. Due to the fact that the state High way Commissioner has received nothing but excessive and exhodbitant bids tor the stone work or capping of this section, the prospect of having nothing better than a muddy grade for traffic next winter confronts the two sections, and the Staunton body passed a resolution urging the State authorities to prevent such calamity if possible. It goes without saying that the Stauntonians had shiefly in mind personal interests, but in looking after their own interests they incidentally put in a plea for Highland, and their action also amounts to a icc .ignition of this countys claim as a v,u liable fee del aim commercial adjunct A recognition of inter dependence or interests in common, would result in a sort of team work or unity of action helpful to both sections.
