Town Officials Elected The election of a mayor and six councilmen for the town of Monterey was held on Tuesday, Juno 14.

OATES FROM PRIMITIVE MAN That the Giving cf Knives “Breaks Friendship" Is a Superstition of Ancient Days. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
OATES FROM PRIMITIVE MAN That the Giving cf Knives “Breaks Friendship" Is a Superstition of Ancient Days. The popular superstition that it “breaks friendship” to give or accept a knife without something of value — preferably money—passing in return, is a survival from the primitive man, declares London Answers. The savage, having progressed from a club to a knife or spear as a weapon, soon learned the danger of relinquishing it merely for friendship's sake, liis friend, having disarmed him, was apt to be his friend no longer. So, for giving up his knife, even to his friend, he demanded a recompense. And he saw that when a friend presented him with a weapon, that friend presently came to regard him—because of regret for the act or because of envy at the added superiority the gift bestowed —with suspicion, growing into enmity. Whereas if he gave a consideration for the knife it was a matter of fair trade and friendship was likely to endure. All this became so deeply ingrained in the m...
APRON WORN AS ORNAMENT Women of Czecho-Slovakia Don Garment With a View of Attracting Masculine Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
APRON WORN AS ORNAMENT Women of Czecho-Slovakia Don Garment With a View of Attracting Masculine Eyes. In the villages and country portions of Czechoslovakia the women do not wear aprons as a badge of work. On the contrary the Czechoslovakia maid does not put her apron on when she enters the house —she dons it only when she is going out to capture the eye of some swain who long lias paid her court. And these aprons usually a*e heirlooms. Green is the favorite color. Next in popularity come gold or yellow, silver, pink, blue, cerise and flaming rose. Usually the embroideries which display these colors are upon dark foundations. Some, however, are white. In both types gay ribbons sometimes play a part. And often the white mutton shoves of the waists are gayly embroidered to complete the radiant effect the wearer’s apron lends as she strolls down the street or along the country lane. THWrsßirts are usually mack and j always short. Their stockings are for protection in their walks as wel...
Not Enough Amateurs. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Not Enough Amateurs. Speaking recently in London, Lord de Walden expressed some views anent the musical amateur. He held that the sad thing about the amateur was that there was not enough of him, that he should be 85 per cent of the population and it did not matter how badly he played. The worse he played the more modest he was likely to be. From bad amateurs was drawn the audience who listened to good professionals. The ordinary taste of the amateur was just as likely to be good as bad, it depended upon what he was first offered. Cultured taste was really the only bad taste in England and he would rather trust the ordinary crossing-sweeper for an appreciation of music than the gentleman who had come from a public school. Lord de Walden also insisted that it was obvious that the English were musical as that the French were not, and claimed that larger audiences of amateurs would result if all concerts in England did not take place practically in one plot in the west end of London wh...
Four Major Crimes in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Four Major Crimes in England. In England there are four crimes punishable by death —setting fire to the royal dockyards or arsenals, piracy with violence, treason and murder. Death was in former times, in Engj land, the ordinary punishment for all felonies. Blackstone refers to 160 offenses as punishable by death, some of them of a nature which appears trivial. For instance, a man who cut down a tree or impersonated a Greenwich pensioner generally paid the life penalty. Due to the exertions of Sir Samuel Romilly, this severe criminal code gave way towards the end of the reign of George 111 to more humane conceptions. Since the statute of 1861 there have remained only the four crimes punishable by death.
WOULD MIX LOVE AND LOGIC Writer's Advice to Woman Desirous of Retaining Husband’s Devotion After the Honeymoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
WOULD MIX LOVE AND LOGIC Writer's Advice to Woman Desirous of Retaining Husband’s Devotion After the Honeymoon. Years ago a poet wrote of love as being “woman’s whole existence.” He must' have known a lot about the feminine sex. Love and logic are at opposite poles of woman’s world; and it is a fact that many a woman has lost a man’s love through not allowing a little common sense in courtship and marriage, the mixing of love and logic, as It were. A girl may be adorable, but If she is forever making her lover appear “silly” in the eyes of the public, she is in danger of losing that man’s love. Simply because a woman finds love and one man her whole existence, that is no reason why a man is going to find that true in regard to the woman he loves. There is a difference in the sexes in that respect. God made it so, and no woman need try to alter it Lovers, married or otherwise, grow restive under restraint, and It is a wise woman who never puts up the “check rein.” One very clever wom...
TOWN BUILT ON GREAT ROCK Ancoma, in Mexico, Surely Has Site Such as No Other Place on Earth Can Boast. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
TOWN BUILT ON GREAT ROCK Ancoma, in Mexico, Surely Has Site Such as No Other Place on Earth Can Boast. To live on top of a mushroom would be a peculiar sensation. If the mushroom were of gigantic proportions and were planted so as to overhang the sea, the experience would be very similar to that of living In the town of Ancoma, which is three miles south of the Mesa Escautada in Mexico, says the Christian Science Monitor. The strange mush-room-Hke rock on which the- town stands is a splendid specimen of fantastic erosion, having overhanging sides nearly 400 feet high. The top of the rock is comparatively level, and is about 70 acres in extent. It is uotched with dizzy chasms. The greater portion of it overhangs the sea like an Immense mushroom, and the oddest thing is that it should have a town at the top. Now, this town pertains to a past civilization. It is one of the most perfect specimens of the pre-his-toric Pueblan architecture. With Inconceivable labor this town In the air wa...
