Hesitate to Attack Mankind. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Hesitate to Attack Mankind. Dr. Rodi of the Italian Somaliland gives an account of lion and leopard bites in the Giornale di Mc-diciua Militare. Many deaths occur annually—almost entirely among the indigenous —in which either one of the felidae or the crocodile Is accused. There is n notable difference between the wounds inflicted by the felidae and the reptile in question, for the former, which attack living victims only, Inflict clean wounds. The crocodile, on the contrary, secretes its carcasses until they become decomposed. In Benadir —the Italian Somaliland —the lion does not attack mankind by choice, preferring cattle and goats; but nevertheless the beast Is greatly feared by the natives, who use reason In dealing with the leopard and crocodile, but are thrown into panic by the larger cat.
Memory and Instinct. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Memory and Instinct. In the higher animals, we can see evidences of the possession of some faculty similar to human memory, which is made use of particularly by animal trainers. It is obvious that Instinct alone would not enable these animals to perform such feats. While we cannot investigate the animal mind as we do the human mind, we can judge of Its processes by the outward signs and these point to the possession of what we may call animal memory. Some students of the subject deny that animals have imagination and assert their memory is only associative —something the animal sees, smells or hears, recalling a group of facts connected with It, and It being Impossible for It to recall this group without some concrete suggestion.
Help! Help! [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Help! Help! “Good advertising,” says a man well up In that line, “benefits any form of business. The right sort of advertising gives you a friendly feeling toward a firm. It makes you believe that It will be both pleasant and profitable to deal with the advertiser. A certain grocer once inserted in the newspapers an advertisement that had this merit. It ran: “ ‘Twins are come to me for the third time. This time a boy and a girl. I beseech my friends to support me stoutly.’ ”

Intelligence Tests, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Intelligence Tests, Are you intelligent? If so, the following mental exercises will gauge the extent. Get somebody to take out his watch and tell him when a minute lias expired. Of course, you must not resort to any such dodge as counting the seconds. And you must talk, and be talked to, during the test. If you guess the very second the first time you are a wonder. Three seconds short was the most nearly correct first attempt among our acquaintances. Thrity seconds short was the worst attempt. The mistake is nearly always on the same side —the guessers think the minute is up before it is. Another excellent test is: Not looking at your watch, hold it to a mirror, and from the face of the watch reflected therein try to tell the time. It souiftls easy, but it isn’t.
How Diseases Are Spread [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
How Diseases Are Spread Many of the diseases that afflict man may almost be said to be made by him, says the United States public health service, for they are spread almost altogether by his disregard of the simplest rules of sanitary living. Typhoid fever, for instance, is spread by the contamination of water, milk and food by human filth which hag been run into rivers or wells or left exposed for flies to carry to the kitchen or dining room, or which even more disgustingly, is carried to food directly from soiled j^ids.

REMAINS IN HER MEMORY How North Star Brings Up Vision of Happy Childhood to the Mind of Writer, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921
REMAINS IN HER MEMORY How North Star Brings Up Vision of Happy Childhood to the Mind of Writer, One of my own most perfect childhoou memories concerns my visits to my granuinother, when she invited me to stay for sapper, and my grandfather walked home with me after dark. All along the way, he used to point out our two shadows on the pavement, as we passed the street lights one by one. We watched the way the shadows were very short directly below the lamp, and how they lengthened until they were just eur height—his more than twice as tall as mine—and how they finally grew so long that their tops were almost out of sight. The object was to find the point where the shadows were exactly us tall as ourselves. When we came to the darkest part of the street, where our shadows were lost in the hedges, we used to stop and find the North star over a pointed tree near my own home. That was always the way we made the Journey from his home to mine, until he thought that I was too old to care to ...
BELL MADE TOO MUCH NOISE Invention of the Telephone Evidently Was Not by Any Means a Quiet Affair. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921
BELL MADE TOO MUCH NOISE Invention of the Telephone Evidently Was Not by Any Means a Quiet Affair. The landlady couldn’t stand It any longer, and the lodgers threatened to leave unless the racket stopped. Alexander Graham Bell was the cause of the trouble. He had rigged up a contraption in his bedroom and a duplicate in the room of his accomplice, Thomas A. Watson. A wire went out of the window and connected the two machines. These two machines, according to young Bell, were first models of a revolutionary invention, the telephone. “I don’t care what it is,” said the landlady, “but If you two boys don’t stop yelling your heads off, into those boxes, you’ll have to pack your trunks and get out.” This episode of the angry landlady happened years ago in a cheap lodging house in Boston. The Western Union Telegraph company offered Bell $lOO,OOO for all hia patents. Bell, with vision, realized that he had a fortune within grasp and rejected the offer. He and Watson went around the country...
Old Estates in America. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921
Old Estates in America. The commonest real estate phenomenon in England is the rarest one in America; namely, long-handed-down holdings still belonging to descendants of the ancient owners. A certain William Douglas, bora (where else than) in Scotland, came to this country in 1625 and settled near New London, Connecticut, where he built a house. The homestead has been in the hands of his offspring ever since. What is believed to be the first English settlement within the present boundaries of New York state, Gardiner’s Island, at the eastern end of Long Island sound, is still owned by descendants of the original owner of the island. Lion Gardiner, who purchased it in 1639 from the Indians. The present home of the Gardiners was built in 1774 and has been exteriorly little altered since.

Our Dearest Friends, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921
Our Dearest Friends, We spend a great deal of onr time in learning what literature is good, and a great deal more in attuning our minds to its reception, rightly convinced that, by the training of our intellectual faculties, we are unlocking one of the doors through which sweetness and light may enter. We are fond of reading, too, and have always maintained with Macaulay that we would rather be a poor man with books than a great king without, though luckily for our resolution, and perhaps for his, such a choice has never yet been offered. Books, we say, are our dearest friends, and so, with true friendly acuteness, we are prompt to discover their faults, and taka great credit in our ingenuity.— Agnes Ilepplier.
