IN THOSE GOOD OLD TIMES! One Will No Longer Wonder Why Our Forefathers Gladly Entered Into Bonds of Matrimony. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
IN THOSE GOOD OLD TIMES! One Will No Longer Wonder Why Our Forefathers Gladly Entered Into Bonds of Matrimony. I have lately been shown (writes a correspondent of the Manchester Guardian) the first account book of a couple w ho set up housekeeping nearly fifty years ago. Many of the entries are interesting reading now, and certain items especially are warranted to make the modern housekeeper's mouth water. The first seiwffut’a wages for instance, were £8 (S4U) a year—a servant, too, 1 was given to understand, who did all the washing, plain cooking and evidently had none of her successors’ objection to children, for in due course she added to her duties that of pushing the baby carriage out every afternoon. It is worthy of note that the bedroom for this treasure was furnished entirely at a cost of £2 10s (812.50). Food prices, unfortunately, cannot be readily compared with those of today, as provisions were entered simply as “grocer, butcher, etc.” But what should we feel now, I wond...
“PANTS” PROVED HIM HONEST Their Frayed Condition Convinced Tailor That Man Who Wore Them Must Be Straight. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
“PANTS” PROVED HIM HONEST Their Frayed Condition Convinced Tailor That Man Who Wore Them Must Be Straight. It pays to advertise one’s poverty, a certain statesman thinks. A tailor in the last campaign was quite convinced in his own mind that the statesman was a most unworthy and absolutely unfit man for public position, as a result of the campaign conducted against him. About ten days before the election one of the bell boys of a Washington club brought to this particular tailor —by mere chance —a pair of trousers belonging to the statesman, to be pressed. It was a hurry-up job, being the only pair that the statesman bad at the time. The tailor started pressing them and to his amazement discovered that the trousers were badly frayed at the edges and worn and showed other evidence that the owner was apparently not spending his money for elegance in clothes, whereupon he announced he was for him. “I am with him from this day forward,” he said. “Any statesman who Is forced to wear clot...

FEMINISTS ARISE IN PERSIA Insist That Veils Are No Longer Required and That Women Are Independent Thinkers. That feminine fashions will nut be coerced by law, even thetigb prison sentence he Inflicted, was the opinion of Prof. Jeuabe Fazei of the Queen’s university of Teheran, who addressed members of the California ciub recently on the feminine movement in Persia. While some American and English women were being imprisoned for asking for tiie suffrage, their progressive sisters in Persia were filling the prisons because they Insisted on leaving off tiie veil. The unveiled became such a majority that the jails in Persia were overcrowded and in despair the government acquiesced. That women may appear on the streets of Persia without the veil imposed by the slate religion is regarded over there as a great triumph in the emancipation of womanhood. Professor Fazel. who holds tiie chair of philosophy in the only university for women in Persia, spoke in musical Persian, his sentences bein...
ROME HOME OF GLUTTONS Table of Ancient Emperor Vitellius Said to Have Cost Him $1,500 Every Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
ROME HOME OF GLUTTONS Table of Ancient Emperor Vitellius Said to Have Cost Him $1,500 Every Day. Very little is known of the food of the ancient Egyptians, authorities say, after explaining that the dwellers in the Nile valley were so fond of their cabbage that they deified it. The Romans raised a great hurroo about the art of the Athenian cooks they captured, history records. But the delicate aroma of the Grecian pot was never meant to satisfy the thick Roman palate. Rome, in its pursuit of physical pleasure, discarded its cabbage and sought for rare and delicate viands. Pollio, it is said, fed the flesh of human slaves to his fowls to invest their meat with a new flavor. Emperor Vitellius’ daily market expense was $15,000. At one banquet he dispensed 2,000 kinds of rare Ush and 7,000 bird species. His table cost him $20,000,000 for one four-month period. To arouse their jaded appetites, it is written, the Romans ate brains of humming birds, tongues of nightingales and roes of the ...

Tractors in Arctic. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
Tractors in Arctic. Tractors are crawling over the snowfields of northern Greenland with supplies of the Lange Koch polar expedition. At last the dog team of the Eskimo has a partial substitute. With their adaptable caterpillar tread, the tractors, like the army tanks, are able to negotiate sharp grades and even wallow over obstacles, along their trackless course. Not that the picturesque dog is to he altogether displaced. For heavy transportation the tractor is useful, but when it comes to the malls the dog teams will still be an essential of the rural delivery service in the land of the igloo.

For The Benefit of The Farmer The emergency tariff on wheat which a slow congress passed “for the benefit of the farmer” has now shown where the benefit went.

On Jan. 1 wheat was $1.41) a bushel. On March 1, I lie price was $1.4 7, on April 1, $1.33, and on May 1 $l.lO. Around May 1 (he farmer found it absolutely necessary to get rid of his wheat stock in order to prepare for the bumper crop forecasted for this year. Millions of bushels went to the market at around $l.lO the bottom price. When this happened, in the fourth week of May, the tariff “for the benefit of the farmer,” was passed, that is, after most of the wheat had gone to market. Then what happened, my brother? Why, toward the end of May the price of wheat soared to $1.65 and an 55 cents per bushel differance went to the grain speculators. A very...

Tail of Comet Expected to Side- Swipe Earth on June 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
Tail of Comet Expected to SideSwipe Earth on June 27. London, May 30 —Pons-Winnecke, the short period comet which is hurl mg through space at a speed of many thousand miles an hour toward the earth, will not have the best of the •‘bump”, according to Prof. A. Fowler, chief lecturer in astronomy at the Imperial Science college. ‘lt is probable,” announces the professor, “that we shall come in contact with the tail, if at all. In this event it is possible Pons- Winnecke may become so disintegrated that other self-respecting comets will disown him.” Professor Fowler was the first scientist to prove that the tails of comets have carbonic oxide gas instead of the deadly cyanogen gas, as was previously supposed. When the tail of the comet comes in contact with this earth,” continued Professor Fowler, ‘‘vast quantities of carbonis oxide gas will be obsorbed in the atmosphere of this plan et. There is no cause for alarm, since the proportion of carbonic oxide is so small in relation to the ...
