INDIANS NEAR TO EXTINCTION Descendant of Caages Says Intermarriage Has Weakened Them So Much That End Is Apparent. John li. Spurrier of Oklahoma says that the Indian will be extinct in a generation or two. Mr. Spurrier, who is a descendant of the Osage Indians and whose wife is also of Indian blood, says that constant intermarriage is so weakening the tribes that the nation which numbered over a million at the tim£ this country was discovered will soon be only a name. “The extinction of the Indian Is only a matter of a short lime," said Mr. Spurrier. “Intermarriage is proving fatal to the tribes, and they cannot long survive it. With intermarriage comes the Americanization and the Indians who have adopted modern methods live in extremely comfortable style. “The richest small group of people in the world are tlie Osage Indians, whose reservation is in Usage county.

TOOK OATH ‘BY THE PEACOCK’ When Philip of Burgundy and Hi* Knights Vowed to Engage to War for Holy Land. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
TOOK OATH ‘BY THE PEACOCK’ When Philip of Burgundy and Hi* Knights Vowed to Engage to War for Holy Land. In 1453 Philip the Good, duke of Burgundy, vowed “by the peacock” to go to the deliverance of Constantinople, which had recently fallen into the hands of the Turks. At the conclusion of the tournament and banquet held by the duke at Lille, Holy Mother Church, in the guise of a lady in mourning seated on an elephant and escorted by a giant, approached the duke and delivered a long versified complaint, claiming the aid and succor of the Knights of the Golden Fleece. The herald advanced, bearing on his fist a live peacock or pheasant, which, according to the rites of chivalry, he presented to the duke. At this extraordinary summons Philip, a wise and aged prince, engaged his person and powers in the holy war against the Turks. HiS example was imitated by the barons and knights of the assembly; they swore to God, the Virgin, the ladies, and the peacock. In this connection will be rec...
As the Lawmakers Slang It. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
As the Lawmakers Slang It. “ ‘A woman on the industrial board’ was killed,” announced Mrs. Stella S. King, acting secretary, at a recent meeting of the Legislative Council of Indiana Women, As she read the last word, she realized what she had said and started to laugh. It was in the text of the minutes of the preceding meeting, at which Mrs. King had not acted as secretary, and came in the account of legislative council bills which had been passed, advanced, or “kliled.” As it happened, it was a mistake after ail, for it was another bill pertaining to the industrial board which had been killed, not that creating a woman member of the board. But for a moment the legislative council forgot its dignity and giggled.—lndianapolis News.
France's Oak Trees Threatened. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
France's Oak Trees Threatened. While endeavoring to recover from the ravages of war the forests of France are also struggling from the ravages of parasitic growths which seem to be especially disastrous to the oaks. These are the country’s most valuable tree, constituting nearly 30 per cent of the forest area. This tree seems to suffer especially from the fungus Oidium, which appeared in the province of Champagne about 1907, and is doing such damage that the extermination of the oak in France is foreseen. Young trees —particularly coppice shoots of the current year—are most susceptible to attack, though seedlings up to ten years of age have been destroyed. No remedy has yet been discovered.
Carrots for Lunch [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
Carrots for Lunch As I lived far from school, I had to carry my lunch. One morning my stepmother asked me to go to the grocery store for some carrots, as we had some pet rabbits. When I returned I set the sack on the table and hurried to finish getting myself ready for school. When I had finished she had my lunch ready and told me it was on the table. That day at noon I opened my sack and to my amazement I had the sack of carrots. Of course the girls all laughed and had a good time over it, but I am sure it was the most embarrassing moment of my life. —Chicago Tribune.

WOMEN HAVE EIGHT STAGES Statistician Tells of Feminine Views and Acts at the Various Periods of Their Lives. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
WOMEN HAVE EIGHT STAGES Statistician Tells of Feminine Views and Acts at the Various Periods of Their Lives. Shakespeare divided the life of man Into several stages—babyhood, boyhood, youth, maturity and old age—but a woman has gone the immortal William several better. She distributes the life of woman among eight periods. Here they are: Babyhood, childhood, girlhood, self-supporting days, life in earnest, housekeeping or homemaking, downgrade and widowhood or dependence. The divisions are not mathematically precise, but they square fairly well with the typical life of average women. The woman carries babyhood and childhood to the age of fifteen; characterizes the three years following as carefree time; sees her sisters as workers between eighteen and twentyfour; says that from twenty-four to thirty-five life is earnest; states that 83 of every 100 women between thir-ty-five and forty-five are bearing and rearing children; finds only 14 of the 100 at work yet between forty-five and ...
