GO FAR BACK IN HISTORY Prehistoric Animals and Reptiles That Have Survived the Long March of Father Time. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
GO FAR BACK IN HISTORY Prehistoric Animals and Reptiles That Have Survived the Long March of Father Time. Many of the prehistoric beasts and reptiles are still with us, though we do not always recognize them. Our common hedgehog was one of them, says a writer in Loudon Answers. lie lived and nourished in these islands thousands of years ago, as the rocks tell us in their unerring way. lie owes his survival to his prickles, his comfortable disposition and careful habits; and, seeing he is a useful little beast, nobody is sorry that he outlived the dragons of old. The common shrew is literally “as old as '.he hills.” His remains have been found as deep as men have ever dug, and that means a very ancient history Indeed. The shrew is the smallest animal on the globe, and, despite his size, he is the champion “flyweight” of the fields. He also has a frightful temper, especially when “he” is a “she,” Hence the term “shrew.’ Turtles and tortoises are old-timers, too. The huge Galapagos tor...
FUG MADE MANY JOURNEYS Emblem Finally Planted by Peary at the North Pols Had Undergone Seine Vicissitudes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
FUG MADE MANY JOURNEYS Emblem Finally Planted by Peary at the North Pols Had Undergone Seine Vicissitudes. The flag which Peary planted at the North polo, and which has drifted 400 miles from its original geographical position, has done more traveling in high altitudes than any other ever made. The intrepid explorer carried io, W omui.-i oJumt his-body on every one of his expeditions northwards, and left a fragment of it at each of his successive “farthest norths.” By the time it actually reached the pole, therefore, It was somewhat worn and discolored. A broad diagonal section of this silk ensign was left at the farthest goal of earth, and a diagonal strip of the same flag was deposited in a glass bottle by Peary, tdgeflier with his records and a message, and was placed in a space between the ice blocks of a pressure ridge. Four other flags were left at the pole; the colors of the Delta Kappa fraternity, the World’s Ensign of Liberty and Peace (red, white and blue, in a held of whi...
The Seismograph. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
The Seismograph. There is a little instrument —or perhaps it’s a big one; at any rate, It is little In comparison with its job —that lias a field all its own and that knows not sentiment. Its scientific name is the “seismograph.” When a gigantic c.tfaclysm in the earth’s crust overwhelms some city and sends thousands homeless into the fields, it records the fact with mercilessly cold methodicity. At such times it is absolutely inhuman in its devotion to the bald scientific. It worries about the cause of disaster; bothers itself not a whit about effect. Then, having exhibited its callousness, it goes to sleep, perhaps has a conscience-smit-ten dream and suddenly wakes up to prove to us all, or some of us, that we have wholly unsuspected cause for thankfulness. In this mood It’s about the only thing on earth able and willing to Impart that impossible piece of knowledge—what we missed.
SSlat PROGltvi Of SCIENCE When It Is Solved It May Be Believed the God of War Will Be Dethroned, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
SSlat PROGltvi Of SCIENCE When It Is Solved It May Be Believed the God of War Will Be Dethroned, At present we know of but three posssible sources of new energy—solar energy, the internal heat of the earth, and atomic disintegration, writes Floyd W. Parsons In the World’s Work. The last-mentioned source of energy Is just now attracting greatest attention. We know that the atoms of radium are in constant process of breaking up. We know that this disintegration liberates energy, for It has proved that the temperature of the air surrounding a piece of radium Is about three degrees higher than the temperature beyond been unable to Increase the flow of energy from radium by heating the metal to a temperature as high as that of the electric arc. Nor have in vestlgators been able to slow down the disintegration of radium atoms by placing the metal in a temperature as low as that of liquid air. In other words, we are easily able to observe all of the phenomena of radio-activity and yet we c...
FIGURES IN CITY’S HISTORY Blackwell’s Island, in the East River, New York, Once Attractive Part of the Metropolis. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
FIGURES IN CITY’S HISTORY Blackwell’s Island, in the East River, New York, Once Attractive Part of the Metropolis. The name of Blackwell’s Island, In East river, New York city, famous for its prison am] workhouse, may become Welfare island. The island came Into possession of the Blackwell family about 16G6 through marriage, then being called Manning’s island, owned by Mary Manning, said to be a niece of Lord Cornbury, governor of the province of New York. Albert Blackwell, the first proprietor of that name —It was he who married Mary Manning—was a member of the provincial assembly 1092-95. During the French and Indian war his grandson, Jacob, served as colonel, and during the Revolution he was a stanch patriot. His property was confiscated and held during the long occupation of New York by the British. Soldiers were encamped on his Long Island lands opposite the island and officers were quartered at his residence. His death was hastened, it is said, by his financial losses.
“Frankenstein," [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
“Frankenstein," “Frankenstein” Is a romance by Mrs. Shelley, wife of the distinguished poet, Percy Byssche Shelley. The hero, Frankenstein, contrives to make and animate by his intimate control of the mysteries of nature, a mouster In human form, who becomes the constant torment of its creator’s existence. The monster was created without a soul, yet not without an intense craving for human sympathy, and he found existence on these terms such a terrible curse that in the end he slew his maker. The story of “Frankenstein” is said to be consciously or unconsciously an allegorical portrayal of the character of Shelley himself, who, In “Alastor,” has painted himself as an Idealist Isolated from human sympathy. Helen Moore, in her life of Shelley, has a chapter on this subject.
Make Firelighters of Clay. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Make Firelighters of Clay. The manufacture of a firelighter from clay deposits found on his land is being undertaken by a farmer in Saskatchewan. This deposit is the only known one of its kind on the American continent, although considerable quantities of this clay are also found in Germany. The firelighter is in the form of a brick. It is soaked in kerosene for a few minutes, and when It has absorbed a quantity a match is applied. The brick will burn for a half hour with a steady flame, and when exhausted can be replenished with kerosene and used indefinitely. Other uses to which this clay can be put are: Kalsomine, filler for paper, cleansing powders, white shoe polish, and brick or tile of the very best quality. —Scientific American.
Sunday as Day of Rest. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Sunday as Day of Rest. Sunday ought to be a day for tuning up the health of the soul, mind and body together. It does not at present fulfill this function because It Is treated simply as a day of idleness. Rest is not Idleness; the best definition of It Is unimpeded activity. The oldfashioned idea that everything ought to be changed on Sunday—clothes, books, children’s games—had some wisdom In it. The habits of the working days were to be broken; we were to do just those things which were not done during the week. So Sunday was a day apart, a real day of refreshment; It did not make us feel “Mondayish”— I. e., good for nothing when it was over.—Dean Inge.
