GHOSTS IN LONDON SQUARES Miny Sections of the Great British Metropolis Are Severely Avoided by the Superstitious. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
GHOSTS IN LONDON SQUARES Miny Sections of the Great British Metropolis Are Severely Avoided by the Superstitious. Old London Is full of ancient old f;juares, many of them tucked away wliere you least expect them, and not a few of them containing houses that in course of time, and by reason of the many grim and harrowing events they have witnessed, are regarded as haunted. But hauntings are occasionally infectious, and ghosts sometimes wander, hence it so happens that not infrequently when one wanders through one of these ancient and remote squares at night—ln the dead of night, mind —one encounters something that cannot altogether be explained by the physical. One of the most typical, perhaps, of these squares is lied Lion square, which boasts of two well-known haunted houses almost next door to one another, and a garden which, rumors at one time had it, possessed a ghost popularly supposed to be that of Oliver Cromwell, whose bones, according to tradition, found a temporary resting...
FOUND LIFE’S BATTLE HARD Great British Painter Finally Vanquished in Struggle for Proper Public Recognition. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
FOUND LIFE’S BATTLE HARD Great British Painter Finally Vanquished in Struggle for Proper Public Recognition. Few diaries are more sad than that which was kept by Benjamin Haydon, the greatest British historical painter of his day. His life was an heroic struggle against adverse circumstances, partially the fault of others, but also a.s a result of his unscrupulousness i'.i money matters, vanity and egotism. Here is an entry which he made in his diary in April of the year 1840: “The beginning of the end.” His reason for writing this foreboding prophesy was on account of his opening an exhibition of the “Banishment tides," which was not t ..

They rush, they light, they scream, they faint, they cry, ‘Help!’ and ‘Murder 1’ They see my bills and caravan, but do not read them; their eyes are upon them, but their sense is gone.

Color for Health. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Color for Health. “Clothes make the man” is a saying that contains more truth than fiction. Who has not been conscious of an uplift in spirits when a new and well-fitting suit has been donned? Visualize your friends, and jot down (he three jolliest and —apparently— healthiest, and then, when next you see those three, notice their apparel. For a certainty It won’t be sombre or dark. As likely ns not you might judge it to err the other way. What would a regatta be like if oarsmen and spectators were soberly clad? Half its joy would depart. Your spirits would droop. So would your health, for that rises or falls exactly with your spirits. “Merrie England” came to an end —this is an historical i fact—when the dull drabness of the Puritans’ clothing came in. So, if you want to be in good health and high spirits, go in for colors and cheerfulness. This advice is neither fad nor fancy. It is based on medical and scientific and hygienic truth.
Joy in Human Relationship. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Joy in Human Relationship. Do we turn for satisfaction to our human relationships? They are among our most precious and holy helps. But our fitness to live with others, or to get the good of living with others, depends chiefly on our fitness to live alone. We must be, in order to do; we must have wisdom and love, in order to give them; we must be just before we can put rectitude into conduct. We cannot even speak the truth, as It deserves to be spoken unless we are true. * - 1 ltT , sincere life pagan tty*. 'How* „_ e cnn k the gods g. Ames, a sine* 4 -
Mirror Or Window. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Mirror Or Window. It appears that some time ago there was invented a r .or that can be made translucent'at wil’lso thaf'when placed In a show window it at lirst rellects the faces of persons looking in, but suddenly turns transparent, whereupon the spectators see the contents of the window in place of their own reflections. This is effected by means of a thin film on the back of the glass, which, when the background Is dark, reflects the light, but when the background is illuminated, becomes as invisible as a pane of clear glass.

I'll buy you a telescope and you can climb a tree and study aviation all you like, but don’t you ever dure to set foot in one o’ them airyplanes.”

LAID OUT AS A PLAYGROUND Famous London Street Had Its Beginning in the Whim of Monarch fcr New Snort. i For the origin of that famous street in London known as Pall Mall, we cun hark back and take a peep Into the diary of that remarkable man, Samuel Pepys. On April 2. 1661, he says, ! “To St. James park, where I saw the t duke of York playing at Pelemele, the first time that I ever saw the sport.” The duke’s brother, King Charles, had recently formed what is called ! the mall for the playing of this game, which was new in England, as there had previously existed a walk for that purpose on the ground occupied by the street now known as Pall Mall. The game was Introduced from France, but the name appeared to be from the Italian “palamaglio” a«d was played with a ball and a mallet along a straight alley and through a ring elevated about 12 feet on an arm extending from a sta*’ j go „ -.. .iac resemoies golf, as the winj her is he who effects this object in the smallest number of stroke...
HOW GREEN GAGE GOT NAME Neglectful Gardener Responsible for Succulent Fruit Having its Now Well-Known Appellation. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
HOW GREEN GAGE GOT NAME Neglectful Gardener Responsible for Succulent Fruit Having its Now Well-Known Appellation. Not one person In a thousand who enjoys the small, green plum which goes by the name of the green gage, ever connects the fruit with an old manor house In Suffolk, England, A beautiful, old house It Is, Hengrave hall, which In the time of Charles II was settled by the Countess Rivers upon her daughter Penelope, who married Sir John Gage. Her third son, Edward Gage, who was created a baronet by King Charles In 1G62, Inherited Hengrave, and his descendants after him. The gardens were on a magnificent scale and everything that was new In the horticultural world found its way to Hengrave. In this way, among other plants and fruit trees, a small plum tree was sent to the gardener, who planted It without much care or thought, and without noticing that the label which ought to have been attached, was missing. When the little tree began to bear fruit it was seen that it was som...
The Artist's Choice. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
The Artist's Choice. In the career of every artist there comes a supreme moment when he or she must choose between two services—the service of art or the service of self. While the artist is actually studying and qualifying, this choice Is hardly offered; he is all artist then, because he is learning and trying to grasp and achieve a command of his art; the artist is always a learner, and the true learner is In some degree an artist. But with achievement and mastery come recognition and applause, come opportunity and power. The artist has become a master, a teacher, endowed with that subtle quality that lays the world at his bidding, when he may either make his followers gloritfy him or glorify his art. The choice Is between serving his art or making it serve him. For the artist who remains true there can be no choice; he must go on serving and learning. —Fiison Young.
The Moth's Song. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
The Moth's Song. In contrast with a host of buzzing relatives, the moths are a silent tribe. This makes the death’s head moth all the more conspicuous in having a voice with which it makes a sound something like a mouse’s squeak, which can be heard at a distance of several yards. It appears from a recent learned investigation that while the cricket and cicada, and Indeed all other tuneful Insects, are comparable to fiddlers or other members of a stringed band, the death’s head moth really is a vocalist making its song with its mouth on the reed pipe plan on which land animals depend. If the insects should get up a concur', the death’s head moth is the onb* volce they could muster. f* l6 P ro " uti-u of his name that made him find a voice and lift it up In protest! —Christian Science Monitor.
How to Check Accounts. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
How to Check Accounts. When checks come back from the bank a good way to straighten out accounts for the month is to paste the checks back on the stubs. The returned check is In itself a receipt and takes care of that part of the business. The large checkbooks having three stubs on a page are a little easier to handle than the small books. A rubber band snapped around the returned checks keeps them from the blank part of the book and causes no inconvenience.—Exchange.
