MOSLEMS ORDERED TO BATHE Religious Law Makes Ablutions Incumbent at Least Once in Period of Ten Days. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
MOSLEMS ORDERED TO BATHE Religious Law Makes Ablutions Incumbent at Least Once in Period of Ten Days. The evidence of one’s eyes might not rate the public bath in Persia as an important institution, but it is indispensable ; for by religious law it is incumbent upon the devout Moslem to bathe at least once in ten days. The fact .that in the cheaper baths, thjere is a common poo-;, Llie water of which remains unchanged for months at a time, would seem to militate against the sanitary value of the performance, but the high temperature to which the water is raised no doubt lias a more or less valuable sterilizing effect, says F. L. Bird in the National Geographic Magazine. The street entrances to the baths are entertainingly marked by lines of varl-coJored bath-cloths, groups of semi-nude attendants and mural paintings resembling in spirit and color the comic section illustrations of American Sunday newspapers. The fuel employed in heating the baths — dung collected from the streets an...

Greatest Fiddle Market. London is the greatest fiddle market in the world, and it is said that there are more Cremona violins and violins of famous makers of Italy, France and Germany In that city than in any other in the world. The Loudon auction sales of violins are famous throughout Europe. Entire collections of fine violins and oilier stringed instruments are constantly coming under the hammer through the death of their owners or through other causes. A violin, although made by one of the great masters and really very valuable, is often vary hard to sell at short notice, and these auction sales offer a convenient and ever ready market for turning such an instrument into cash. For this reason violins are sent from all over Europe to London to be sold. The violins can be examined at the auction rooms a certain number of days before the sale and when ®e sale day arrives are knocked down to the highest bidder for cash.
No Limp in This Retort. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
No Limp in This Retort. Forty years ago a cleric attached to one of the colleges in Oxford was noted by a limp. He was accosted one day at a railway station by a prominent politician, who inquired whether he was chaplain in the college at such a time. The cleric replied that he was. “Yes,” said his interrogator. “I knew you by your limp.” “My preaching does not seem to have impressed you as much as my limping,” said the clergyman. “Ah,” said the other, “but the highest compliment one can pay a minister is to say that he is known by his walk rather than by his conversation I” —Glasgow Herald.
Dream Lore. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Dream Lore. To see a lamb foretells a successful terminat'd i-f your enterprise. To a lover it denotes a sweet tempered lady and a happy marriage.

GUARD DIGNITY OF PRESIDENT Washington Theatrical .Managers Are Not Allowed to Advertise His Attendance in Their Playhouses. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
GUARD DIGNITY OF PRESIDENT Washington Theatrical .Managers Are Not Allowed to Advertise His Attendance in Their Playhouses. There is a code of etiquette governing relations between the executive mansion at Washington and the playhouse. Point No. 1 in the code provides that no manager, either of the theater or of the visiting attraction, shall angle for Presidential patronage. When a company arrives at the theater Its manager is handed a card which impresses this upon him, and crushes all hopes of using his pet projects for luring the President to confer indorsement upon his offering. Another point is that a box is reserved in every theater in Washington every day until noon for the President. By that hour the White House is supposed to have notified the theater that the President will attend that evening. Reservations may be made earlier, of course, but in no event may the house or company manager make us'e of a paragraph in the newspapers announcing that the President will attend o...
Great Pianist Particular. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Great Pianist Particular. Paderewski will not permit anybody to sit behind him, says a writer in Uearst’s. At some of his concerts hundreds of seats could have been added on the stage. Moreover, in every Paderewski recital no seats are sold in 'hat part of the orchestra proper which is directly behind him. The piano is set at a 45-degree angle, which means that in the extreme left corner of the orchestra, looking toward the stage, a number of seats are directly facing Paderewski’s back. Those seats are empty for Paderewski. “If they are behind me, I think they are pushing my elbows,” he says. One night he complained: “Will you go down to that woman in the seventh row at the right? She is fanning. 1 do not mind if she fans in time. But if she cannot do that I cannot play.”
