BARRED THE OVERHEAD SIGN Authorities of City of London Prohibited the Projecting Nuisance in Eighteenth Century. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921

BARRED THE OVERHEAD SIGN Authorities of City of London Prohibited the Projecting Nuisance in Eighteenth Century. Many things to which we are now so thoroughly accustomed that they seem natural and obvious took the world a long time to think of, observes Everyday Science. Numbering the houses or shops in a street as a means of identifying them seems a very simple device, but nobody thought of it until well on in the Eighteenth century. Until then they got on as well as they could with no numbers, and in London streets, like Cheapside, every shopkeeper tried to outdo his rivals In the size and grandeur of his signboard. They projected over the street, and every now and then fell down and killed somebody. They creaked and groaned terribly whenever tho wind blew, and it shows what a nuisance they were that within a year of house numbering being Introduced signboards which projected from the walls w T ere prohibited. The first London 10 Vo nuiutered In M 1764, was New Burlington street, ...

The Best Will Take Most Polish. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921

The Best Will Take Most Polish. In the handful of shingle which you gather from the sea-beach, which the Indiscriminate sea, with equality of fraternal foam, has only educated to be, every one, round, you will see little difference between the noble and mean stones. But the jeweler’s trenchant education of them will tell you another story. Even the meanest will be better for it, but the noblest so much better that you can class the two together no more. The fair veins and colors are all clear now, and so stern is nature’s Intent regarding this, that not only will the polish show which is best, but the best will take most polish. You shall not merely see they have more virtue than the others, but see that more of virtue more clearly; and the less virtue there is, the more dimly you shall see what there is of it. —John Ruskin.

Wonderful Measurement. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921

Wonderful Measurement. Persons who are devoting themselves to the science of measuring the small things of the universe will best appreciate the achievement credited to Prof. Pedersen of Copenhagen university, who is said to have invented a method by which he can measure the thousand-millionth part of a second. Physicists can accurately weigh quantities as small as the 500-thousandth part of a milligram, of which it takes 28,350 to balance an ounce, and an instrument exists by which the 70-mil-lionth part of an inch can be measured. At the other end of the time scale there is the astronomer’s unit for sounding the depths of stellar space —a “light year,” the distance traversed by a ray of light in a year, moving without cessation at a speed of 186,300 miles a second.

Owls and Crows. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921

Owls and Crows. Owls are the pet aversion of crows. In daylight they heap such complete vituperation upon an owl's head, that the process thus baldly reveals to what vulgar depths at times bird nature may fall. Crows will hang about in squads tormenting, scolding, pitching at the silent owl and then retreating, for a day at a time, never ceasing their aspersions and denunciations —but they always act in concert, never alone. At night the role of pursuer is changed; the silent, grim raptore makes little return by way of tumult, but the effectiveness of his retaliation is not open to question.

Sa/s Hearts Really Break. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921

Sa/s Hearts Really Break. Poets a i‘d romance writers for ages have been ou firm ground when they have pictured broken-hearted swains and maidens. According to Dr. Strickland Goodall, a noted heart specialist, it is a physiological fact that hearts do break. But he says, joy and not woe or hard work is more frequently the cause of a broken heart. In his long experience he lias found that emotion rather than hard work has been responsible for broken hearts. “Don’t get into a temper,” says Dr. Goodall, “because it increases the heart’s work by seventy-two font pounds. Running upstairs is foolish, because the increase is 152 foot pounds. If man spends one day in bed weekly lie saves his heart 05)8,400 foot pounds.”

Don’t let anyone tell you that any other cigarette at any price is so good as Camels. Let your own taste be the judge. Try Camels for yourself.

Goldfish in Ohio River. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921

Goldfish in Ohio River. Many tons of goldfish were caught In the fishing grounds of the Portage river at Port Clinton, 0., recently. According to some of the fishermen, the first scattering of the fish was found in 1913 after the big floods of Ohio and the lake regions, and it was thought at that time that the fish may have been liberated from some of the park and resort aquariums, by the overflowing of the Hooded artificial ponds. The fish are not of the glass bowl variety, but seem to be more of a carp species, and will measure several inches and weigh as much as a halfpound each. They are placed in cars and brought here to be loaded into express cars and shipped in tanks, alive, to the New York markets, where they are sold to tiie retail and wholesale trade.

St. Paul Is Exonerated. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921

St. Paul Is Exonerated. Men translated the Bible—and twisted St, Paul’s remarks about women to suit their own ideas. That is divulged by Miss K. Raleigh to the Women’s Freedom league. The apostle’s remarks about women, she said, were badly twisted in translation and it could be proved by the removal of a few dots and commas, that St. Paul did not: Forbid women to preach; command them to obey their husbands; insist that forever and aye, whatever the fashion of the country, they should wear bats In church; say that they should never wear jewelry and fine clothes. “In the sentence ‘Women obey your husbands,’ ” said Miss Raleigh, “the correct translation of the word ‘obey’ Is ‘be considerate to.’ ”

A Yellow Peril. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921

A Yellow Peril. Can you read your laundry mark? T. Philip Terry, author of “Terry’s Guide to Japan,” tells the following joke on himself —a joke which emphasized the advisability of keeping on good terms with one’s Chinese laundryman. The Chink in Mr. Terry’s home town was inclined to be surly; so one day the guide book writer lectured him on the subject of courtesy, and urged him to adopt civility as a habit. The admonition palpably displeased the celestial, but he said nothing. Later Mr. Terry, who lived several years in Chi na and knows something of the lan guage, was surprised to find his shirts and collars marked with the Cantonese hieroglyph signifying “upstart jackass.”
