i#ARTEE WitHOut A STING Celebrated Retorts That Have Been Considered as the Very Best of Their Kind. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
i#ARTEE WitHOut A STING Celebrated Retorts That Have Been Considered as the Very Best of Their Kind. Tt was Sir Francis Burnand who made the celebrated retort about Punch. Some one said to him: “Punch Is not what it used to be.” Burnand brilliantly replied: “It never was.” But repartee is a gift that belongs to no special class. It is said that the one amusement of Burton, the author of “The Anatomy of Melancholy,” was to sit and listen to the witty encounters of Oxford bargees. Cardinal Bourne once talked with an American, who boasted that the Mississippi was a finer river than the Thames. He descanted on its superior! ty. saving that an Fnglish river was only “ a sickly stream.” To this the cardinal very cleverly replied: “But your river Is conlined to its bed, isn’t it?” Rev. C. H. Spurgeon was never at a loss for a witty rejoinder. Among his many gifts was a faculty for recognizing people, and remembering their names. If he ever made a mistake, lie would rectify It felicitously....
BROUGHT VEKDE3 TO TIME Loyal Small Girl Convinced Him What a Very Smpj.tant Person Her Daddy Was. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
BROUGHT VEKDE3 TO TIME Loyal Small Girl Convinced Him What a Very Smpj.tant Person Her Daddy Was. The admiration of four-year-old Mary Elizabeth for her father had been the cause of much comment in the family circle. Mary Elizabeth was simply filled with adoration, which seems entirely old-fashioned. So when the circus came to town Dad the Magnificent said there could be a box party, and added to the thrill by volunteering to escort his daughter and her little playmates to see the wonders of the greatest show. During the very first part some bright eye chanced to discover a balloon vender. Immediately there was a unanimous vote that balloons were next in line, and Mary Elizabeth was dispatched hastily to bring the vender, dad, of course, keeping an eye on her retreating figure. When she returned with the man and the whole crowd had been presented .with the bright-colored balloons dad asked her how she had made out on the journey. “Well,” she informed him primly, “the man started to ...
Decency and Bedtime. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Decency and Bedtime. “All decent people should be in bed by one.” Such is the dictum of an eminent uplifter. It is calculated to startle even a world familiar with the intellectual divagations of uplifters. The quality of decency has often been debated. It does not appear that u universal satisfactory definition has yet been reached. But a time limit on decency is something new. By what magic has one o’clock in rhe morning become the witching hour ihat divides the sheep from the goats? Many respectable citizens are not abed at that hour. Is their respectability but a cloak for indecency? It is hard to believe that a virtue can be so accidental. None will deny that one o’clock is a very good hour to be abed. It is quite late enough for those who have to be downtown in the morning. Still, it is easy to imagine sufficient reasons, not discreditable, either, for being up even later. —New York Tribune.
Salt in the Ocean. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Salt in the Ocean. The best-supported modern is that the ocean has been salt from the very beginning of time. The old idea has been that the salt in the sea was not there originally, but was brought to it, little by little, throughout the ages, by rivers which washed it out of the land. In the process of evaporation the moisture was drawn up, leaving the salt behind and thus gradually concentrating it in the ocean. However, the old idea is discredited by the fact that there is a great similarity between the salts found in the ocean and those present in the gaseous matter ejected from the interior of the earth during a volcanic eruption, and the great difference between the salt of ocean water and that of Inland salt lakes formed by the evaporation of river water.
Old Court of St. James. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 10 June 1921
Old Court of St. James. The historic background of court dignity still prevails in Great Britain. A portion of the old royal palace of St. James, where the ceremonial levees still are held, dates back to Tudor days, and every American tourist is familiar with the famous horseguards stationed before its gates with their brilliant uniforms. To this court America has sent as her ministers and ambassadors statesmen, men of letters and brilliant lights of the legal profession. Some of these men have gone from this position to the Presidency, while others have rounded out their years of public service in that office.

SHOWED SMALLNESS OF MIND Whistler's Petulance Under Criticism Was Cause of Sorrow to Hia Numerous Admirers. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
SHOWED SMALLNESS OF MIND Whistler's Petulance Under Criticism Was Cause of Sorrow to Hia Numerous Admirers. There is no doubt that Whistler was a master of bitter words. His phrases have a casual ease of snapping and stinging that often scarifies and sometimes amazes. From his Puritan training and his extensive knowledge of the Bible—“that splendid mine of invective,” as he characteristically called It—as well as from his own reckless temper, he drew a profusion of abuse, ■which withered, whether justifiable or not. And occasionally he was capable of great imaginative touches that recall his pictures. But in general his writing is vexatious and, to say the least, undignified ; the angry rattle of a gifted small boy, who ought to know better. The Wilde correspondence is perhaps the •worst; but everywhere we get a tone of cheap abuse and railing. There is a careless vigor of sharp wit, but hardly the vituperative splendor of Voltaire or Swift. And it is such a small, such a shallow, s...
ANCIENT GUILD OF ARCHERS Institution Centuries Old Lodged in . One of the Most Interesting Buildings in Bruges. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
ANCIENT GUILD OF ARCHERS Institution Centuries Old Lodged in . One of the Most Interesting Buildings in Bruges. One of the most interesting places In Bruges, both for its antiquity and its connection with the royal house of Stuart, Is the Guild of Archers of St. Sebastian, The date of the foundation of the guild is unknown, as all the records were destroyed in the great fire of the belfry of Bruges in 1280. However, there is every reason to believe it must have existed before 1096, as it had already emblazoned in its arras the Cross of Jerusalem, or the Holy Land, which, was awarded to all the medieval guilds that took part in the first crusade. The guild now has in Its possession archives dating from ISOS. The present build- Ing was given by Cornelius ue Bidci in 1573, when a chapel with a remarkably fine ceiling was built, and is still to be seen. Charles 11, king of England, together with his brother, the duke of Gloucester, becamg members during their two years of exile. Charles...
Senses Keyed to Danger. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Senses Keyed to Danger. Since it is more important to be warned of danger than guided to delights our senses are made more sensitive to pain than pleasure, writes Edwin E. Siosson in the New York Independent. We cannot detect by the smell one two-millionth of a milligram of oil of roses or musk, but we can detect one two-billionth of a milligram of mercaptan, which Is the vilest smelling compound that man has so far invented. If you do not know- how much a milligram is, consider a drop picked up by the point of a needle and imagine that divided into 2 billion parts. Also try to estimate the weight of the odorous particles that guide a dog to the fox or warn a deer of the presence of man. The unaided nostril can rival the spectroscope in the detection and analysis of umveighahle amounts of matter.
Thought He Had a Meaning. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Thought He Had a Meaning. Headers will be interested to know that authors do not always know just what precisely was their meaning when they wrote certain lines or passages. Maeterlinck always disclaimed any allegorical message in his “Blue Bird,” for instance, and insists that he wrote the play as a fairy tale, and nothing more. When Hawthorne was asked for an interpretation of some of the legends in “Mosses from an Old Manse,” he wrote: “Upon my honor, I am not quite sure that I comprehend ray own meaning in some of those blasted allegories, but I remember that I always had a meaning, or at least thought I had.”
