‘SURE GUILTY OF SOMETHING’ Fact That It Didn't Happen to Be Larceny Didn’t Make Much Difference to Hank. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
‘SURE GUILTY OF SOMETHING’ Fact That It Didn't Happen to Be Larceny Didn’t Make Much Difference to Hank. There is an old New England squire whose knowledge of the statute law is limited, hut who has decided views as to common justice. Not long ago a certain Hank Miller was brought bt*lore him, charged with larceny. It appeared from the evidence that Hank had rented a horse from a farmer to do some hauling and that, during the period the animal had remained in his possession, he had fed it from the owner’s stock of grain, although the agreement was that Hank himself should supply the feed. He was charged by the farmer, therefore, with the theft qf two bushels of oats and corn. “The statutes made and provided,” tlie old squire announced ponderously, “say that theft is to convert to your own use the property of another. The horse is ihe servant of the owner, not of Hank, and Hank converted them oats to the horse’s use, not his —so I acquit Hank of stealin’ them oats —he ain’t guilty of...

I noil Mohammedan Fanatics Paid Dearly for “Brain Stew.” Excess of Zeal Discouraged by French Authorities in Northern Senegal in Effective Manner. Boomba is not the seat of Mohammedan culture in Africa. Boomba lies in northern Senegal, behind the west coast of Africa, humiliated at the onward strides of Dakkar, a worldly seaport knowing neither religion nor shame. And let it he known to all men that the natives in the hinterland nigh unto Boomba are as the “wee-sum’ hours of the raornin’,” in blackest darkness; but seeking the light of a great awakening. Last month, while the Clontarf, stout shipping-board vessel, now at pier 23, foot of Pacific street, lay to hi the roadstead at Dakkar, a wave of revival hithhe vicinity of Boomba, according to the assistant engineer.

Now, the German found the Senegalese a fiercesome soldier. On his ...
The World’s Advancement. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
The World’s Advancement. Those who, in retrospect, recall the days of the hand sickle may well marvel at the developments which have taken place within their recollection ! They have SPIm, besides the development in agriculture, the inauguration of almost countless devices and utilities. Thejr have seen railroads built across the continent, the telegraph and telephone perfected, great steamship lines established and more latterly the motor car and the airplane utilized in everyday affairs. Until the hand sicklfe was laid aside it had been used since that time to which the memory of men runneth not to the contrary. And yet to them, it may seem the advent of the grains cradle and the crude horsedrawn reaper was but as yesterday. Personified, those homely early devices seem almost like the explorers of the earlier ages who set out upon voyages of discovery with nothing to guide them but a vision of something grander and more beautiful than their eyes had ever beheld, —Exchange.
New Discoveries in Crete [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
New Discoveries in Crete Excavations at Knossos, Psaetos and other sites in Crete have not merely established the existence of a people whose form of civilization was the earliest in Europe, but have shown much about their daily life, games, amusements; their art, religion, writing—though hardly yet their language; their physical characteristics, dress ami the houses they live in. A huge palace, as big as Buckingham .palace, has been unearthed at Knossos. It has a drainage system that an. eminent Italian archeologist has described as “absolutely English,” and that certainly anticipates the hydraulic engineering of the Nineteenth century. The men of science engaged in the work estimate the age of their discoveries at four thousand years.— Discoveries.

Waiter Denounces th|P“Life Imprisonment” Which Confinement in Zoo- j logical Garden M^ans. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
Waiter Denounces th|P“Life Imprisonment” Which Confinement in Zoo- j logical Garden M^ans. “Purely as a matter of'ethics, abolition is the ultimate logic of all zoological gardens.” Such is the opinion of a writer in the Nation of London. “Animals have committed no crimes against the community,” lie says, “and therefore the community has no right whatever to give them life sentences of imprisonment.” A very few of the larger animals, he admits, may affect human life injuriously, but they form an infinitesimal portion of the inhabitants of a zoological garden. On the other hand, it is argued that we never thought of confining those animals believed to be the most injurious, namely insects —and therefore it is plain that “the punishment does not fit. the crime.” Even if it were granted that animals are happier in captivity than in their native wilds, this can only be' meant relatively, for though protected and cared for. animals in captivity are denied the primal joys of liberty and f...
Every Man to His Trade [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
Every Man to His Trade , A devoted couple, married a short time ago, took up their abode in a dainty cottage in a suburban quarter. Everything in the house was the latest and gave unraixed satisfaction. But one evening when the husband returned he found, to his disgust, that a water pipe had burst. The rooms were flooded and the carpets, which were the husband’s special pride, were in danger of being spoiled. “Well, well,” said he impatiently to his wife, “why on earth didn’t you hammer the pipe up! Here, give me a hammer and I’ll do it in a twinkling.” He got the hammer and pounded away at a pipe down in the cellar. When he had finished he paused to examine the result of his labor. Then, to his complete chagrin, he heard the sweetly chiding voice of his wife at the top of the stairs. “Howard!” said she,, “the gas has gone out, and the water is still running.” Then he sent for a plumber.—Answers.

The next issue contained: “We wish to apologize for the manner in which we disgraced the beautl-. ful wedding last week. Through an error of the typesetter we were made to say “the roses were ‘punk.’ What we wanted to say was the ‘noses were pink.’ ” —Philadelphia Bulletin.

The Pilgrims in America were more Inclined to look after gunpowder than books, but several hundred volumes were brought over on the Mayflower, including 400 books owned by William Brewster, the leader. Sixtyfour of them were in Latin, and a number of others in Greek and Hebrew, while still others were devoted strictly to systematic theology, volumes of controversies with tj»e Roman church, volumes on toleration, polemical works, and discussions on the Reformation.

Wright’s “Literary Culture in Early New England,” not one had less than £1 worth of books, and 11 had £5 or more, though only four of these estates totaled more than £2OO.
