Sexton’s Signs Startle. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Sexton’s Signs Startle. Birth, marriage and death are generally considered the three high points in the average person’s career. The church has vital connection with all three, but probably in few cities are the three so vividly associated as they are in New York. The sexton’s sign on New York churches always impresses tourists. It generally is as conspicuous as the placard giving the name and address of the pastor and tells how funerals and burials may be arranged. Visitors from the West, where churches do not advertise the sexton, read the sign with a rather creepy feeling.

KNOW NOTHING OF COOKJN3 Culinary Art Absolutely Undeveloped Among the Savages of the South Sea Islands. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
KNOW NOTHING OF COOKJN3 Culinary Art Absolutely Undeveloped Among the Savages of the South Sea Islands. Toward sunset (on Malekula, Hebrides group, South I'acific) \v* built a fire and cooked our supper, writes Martin Johnson in Asia Magazine. The natives (a cannibal tribtj gathered around and watched us ia astonishment. They themselves no such elaborate preparation for easing. Once in a while a man would kindle o fire and throw a few yatts among tlie coals. When the yan,; were burned black on one side, I* would turn them with a stick and burn them on the other. Then were ready for eating —the outsiqo burned crisp and the inside raw. One evening some of the men brought in some little pigs, broke their legs, so Hint they could not escape, and threw them, squealing, into a corner of a hut. The next day there was meat to eat. Like the yams, it was only half cooked. The natives tore it with their teeth as If they had been animals and they seemed especially to relish the crisp, burned po...
STILL HOLD TO OLD THEORY Scientists Satisfied to Accept Ancient Explanation of the Magnetism of Earth's Surface. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
STILL HOLD TO OLD THEORY Scientists Satisfied to Accept Ancient Explanation of the Magnetism of Earth's Surface. It was shown by Gilbert in the yea&gt; IGOO that the facts then known the magnetic condition of the earth*i surface could be explained by assarting that the earth was a uniformly magnetized sphere, the magnetic poles of which approximated to the geographical poles. With small modifications this theory has been accepted universally, but the cause of the magnetism is still completely obscure. It is well known that the compass ueedlo points approximately north and south over the whole of the globe, except in the Arctic and the Antarctic regions. The variation from the true north — namely, tiie angle between the direction of the compass at a certain place and the line of longitude through that place—is called the “declination” for that place. Also in northern latitudes the north-seeking end of the needle points or dips downward, while in the southern hemisphere the re...
Remarkable French Statue. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Remarkable French Statue. “Sorrow,” one of the famous statues In the Tuileries, Paris, is said to be unique in execution. Approached from the south, the face of the figure seems (o be an exquisitely done joyful countenance. From the other side, however, joy is seen to be but a mask for a face of woe. Speculation has been rife as to the real meaning of the figure, and what it is supposed to represent. So many appropriate explanations have been given that none has been found satisfactory. Many of the greatest works of sculptors share with “Sorrow” space in the famous Paris gardens of the Tuileries, in which authors of all nations have scened countless romances and adventures. Its exquisite formal flower garden, as well as the remarkable statuary make the Tuileries a haunt of Parisians on holidays.
Magnetic Furniture. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Magnetic Furniture. Some pieces of furniture seem made to hold more things than others. There are tables that are positively magnets. They attract the entire deposit of the day. You may put such a table in perfect order in the morning, and by night it will be completely hidden beneath an accumulation of newspapers, notions and small wares. In the same way, certain backs of chairs form natural hanging-places for caps and bookstraps and shopping bags. “Have you looked on the back of the Morris chair?” “Have you looked on the hall table?” Magnetic furniture governs not only the domestic trade-routes and thoroughfares and the lines of traffic from room to room; it governs also the line of argument when things are lost and not found. —Frances Lester in the Atlantic Monthly.
No Business Smokes Then. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
No Business Smokes Then. “Have a cigar while we’re talking it over,” says the business man today. Not so a hundred years ago in New York. Then there was no such thing as smoking in business hours. “No man who was known to smoke a cigar In the streets or at his office in business hours could have obtained a discount at any bank in the city.” says Charles H. Haswell In his “Reminiscences of ari Octogenarian.” And he tells us that September 21. 1823, the Advocate, a leading New York newspaper, published, with grave reflections on the stale of tin 1 times, the fact that a young man had actually been seen smoking in tinstreets at nine o’clock in the morning —New York Evening Post.

A DESPERATE REMEDY, BUT— [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
A DESPERATE REMEDY, BUT— Last season we asked that Austral ia be debarred from any league of Nations until she recalled her Austral ian salt grass (so called) which has become one of the worst of pests and is sapping the physical strength and moral fiber of the trucker and gardener. We have beard nothing as to what action the government took in the matter, hut inasmuch as at least one congressman is known to a Recorder subscriber, we take it for granted that he read our piece aloud at the next meeting, and doubtless the matter was placed in the hands of an investigating committee. In that event, tlie man bird or beast responsible for importing the pest will have been long dead before the report is made, but we want posterity to know who put in the protest. Our purpose now, however, is to let the gardeners know that we have found out how to exterminate the weed, and feel reasonably safe in de daring it effective if details are close ly followed. .^u When you w'ork your “truck” the fi...
COUNTRY TOWN BOOSTING [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
COUNTRY TOWN BOOSTING Right now agriculture is our big important problem and it is the problem of the manufacturer, the merchant, the general public just as much as it is the problem of the farm er. - * Agriculture, above all industries, is entitled to constructive publicity. Agriculture is of such importance that we could veil afford to consider everything that is spoken, written, printed or painted in the light of the question. Farming is just about the only thing that has not used publicity to advantage. It needs boosting. It cannot get along without it, and still keep up with the time. The farmer who can afford to spend a dollar, or $lO. or $lOO cannot afford not to spend it in some way with the community newspaper either by subscribing, or having print ing done or by inserting the “card”* of his farm in its columns, or advertising the products he has for sale to some extent at least, and at the right time. And the publisher, on his side: cannot afford to do a thing less than bo...
Fathers’ Day [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Fathers’ Day The fact that last Sunday, which was Father’s day, passed by without anybody’s remembering that any such day had ever been set apart in his honor, while Mother’s day was celebrated with all due reverence throughout the country, leads the Baltimore Sun to the conclusion that father himself would be very glad to have it “revoked, recinded, repealed and abolished.” The Sun goes on to say that in old times when father was head of the family, “or fancied himself so, he would have consdered such a tribute as a natural right and a proper recognition of his merit, importance and sovereignty. But, poor devil, he has learned better in the last generation. He has been taught his proper place in the world, the manifold character of his imperfections, the subordinate role which he really plays. The lesson has been good for him. It has taught him humility, it has deflated him. Moreover, he is, as a rule, a shrinking sensitive plant, a sort of humain violet who shuns pub licity and pr...
OLD HICKORY CHIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
OLD HICKORY CHIPS Washington, D. C. June 11 Getting married is like vaccination Sometimes it takes. Ambassador Harvey will be to the allied council what the hole is to the doughnut. Lenin is inclined to try almost any kind of government on Russia that shows a prospect of being reliably fl nanced. Deflation has knocked the “fits” out of profits. The Germans are finding no easy marks among the allies. The general willingness to let George do it” does not extend to the Irish. Does poetry pay? Well a New York poet has just married an heiress In this country, it has been said of officeholders, “Few die and none resign.” In Ireland, it’s “Few don’t die and none resign.” It may not be an enduring peace, but it has endured a great deal. The Volstead law isn’t preventing wages taking a drop too much. Put down your windows. Washington is going -to discuss peace. Do you remember the old-fashion-ed drug store that sold drugs instead of safety razors, hammocks, golf balls toys and quick lunch. G...
