TEMPTED BY BRIGHT LIGHTS Adventurous Bossie Attempted to Make Her Way Into Vaudeville • in City of Dallas. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
TEMPTED BY BRIGHT LIGHTS Adventurous Bossie Attempted to Make Her Way Into Vaudeville • in City of Dallas. Gentle Bossie, th*ed of the humdrum life of giving milk and Initter for the hungry mouths of some family, and bored with the pastoral quiet of the farm, determined the other night to have a taste of the gay life of the big city at least once before* she crossed the Iliver Styx. Accordingly she sought out the brightest lights of the city, a vaudeville house. But lirst her bovine majesty sauntered gayly up Elm street from Lamar, gazing in the show windows as she roved. While in this vicinity she even attempted to enter a street car. Then, pursuing her primrose course, she plodded on toward the center of the city until she wqs confronted with the cray, yellow lights brightening the front of a vaudeville show. Not considering whether she would he a welcome guest, Bossie walked into the lobby of the show, thereby nearly causing the head usher to be smitten with hysterics. He finally...
Expect New Boom in Yukon. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921

Woman Best Hunger Striker. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
Woman Best Hunger Striker. Could a woman set the world’s record'for hunger striking? ' Reports from Vienna, where the American relief administration European children’s fund is feeding IGO,000 boys and girls a day, indicate that a woman can live longer without food than a man. “Girls show more resistance in fighting malnutrition than boys,” said Ignatz Panzer, representative of the New York Produce exchange, who just returned from Austria. “Physicians have found that a girl can go longer on less food with less serious results than a boy of the same age.” —New York Sun.

pPHMM-r* KING of heaven ; 4 u Fable Concerning the Who Succeeded in Outwitting Fate. “What Is written on the forehead must come to passthis Is one of the major articles in the Hindus’ pessimistic credo. Yet even India has its unorthodox —Philistines who deny the power of fate. They offer, in scattered stories and proverbs, convincing evidence of their incredulity. A fable tells how two fishes named Forethought and Readywit escaped the fishermen, but Fatalist was caught and perished miserably. A rather unusual story tells how a tricky gambler outwitted fate. After death he went to the other world. There Yama, the judge of the dead, said to him, “Gambler, on account of your crimes you will have to live a world-cycle in hell; but once on a time you gave a coin to a knower of the Supreme Soul; therefore you are to be Indra, the king of heaven, for a single day. So say whether you will take opt first your period in hell or your period as Indra.” “I will take out first my period as Indra,...

Delectable Siberian Dish. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
Delectable Siberian Dish. The Siberians make much of their “cold table” —raw fish, caviar, salads, and that delicious crab whose meat gives no nightmare, indigestion or headache. Their best dish is chicken, prepared in a most unusual way. Butter is laid thickly on a bone; layers of light and dark meat are wrapped around it; then the whole is rolled In egg and crumbs and baked. It makes a small “ham” of chicken and is very tender. One must be careful in cutting into it lest the hot butter spurt out beyond the plate. The Russian is a heavy meat eater, due largely to the fact that there Is an abundance of game, pheasants being cheaper than chickens, and In some places venison is cheaper than steak. In the palmy days the Siberian table must have groaned.—Cody Marsh in the National Geographic Magazine.
Individuality. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
Individuality. Individuals are just as distinct and different each from the other as one kind of matter differs from another. They have different uses and different applications. To attempt to drive a nail with a sponge would be just as fruitless, if not as destructive, as to try to wash a window with a hammer. To try to make a boy who loves mechanics and wants to study machinery into a professor of Greek is to misapply his talents and diminish his efficiency. Don’t plan too much for your children. Let them have a little of their own way in following their inclinations as to what they shall be and do. Remember that you cannot get out of a boy or a man what God Almighty did not put into him. —F. A. Walker in Chicago Daily News.

THING THAt RlStUf COUNTS’ First Punch Alv ffective Agent, in Life a* the Squared Circlf- Georges Carpentler is a smart fellow —that is, he is something more than a fighter. One might even Sail the Frenchman a prophet. “The one that gets in the first punch will win,” he said, referring to his coming match with Dempsey. We’ll let it go at that so far as the next world’s championship heavyweight fight goes. But just look around and see if you a punch in your system and if you can land it first. How’ hard can you sock at your job? What is your batting average in the a. m. Or can you take a punch as well as give one? They called Tris Speaker a miracle pilot because he put the punch into a ball club that copped the world title. He always made it a point to land first on the scoreboard and when he didn’t he kept slugging away until he usually had his lead at the end of the game. Man o’ War is called the greatest horse the world has ever had. But the Biddie colt is just a horse that puts th...
IMITATE CUSTOMS OF WEST Manchu Women on Streets of Peking Use Rouge, but in Manner Pronounced Clumsy. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
IMITATE CUSTOMS OF WEST Manchu Women on Streets of Peking Use Rouge, but in Manner Pronounced Clumsy. The first strikingly surprising custom among the citizens of Peking is that the women wear skirts, James A. Muller writes in the National Geographic Magazine. To a traveler fresh from America, this would seem as it should be, but to one resident in the land of trousered women it appears almost immodest! They not only wear skirts; they further approximate western usage by painting their faces. Broadway is nature itself in comparison; for in Peking there are no light, artistic touches, blit bold cheek circles of red upon frankly whitened faces —cometic unabashed. These are the Manchu women. The Manchu men, descendants of the roving Tartars, go futilely about this spacious city of their fathers balancing trick birds upon their wrists; for, now that the empire is no more, their only occupation, that of ruling, is gone, and the conquered Chinese, Immemorial city dwellers, are masters of ...
A Little Love Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
A Little Love Story. A dreamer and a man of action loved a woman. The dreamer said: “I shall write verses in her praise; they will touch her vanity and she will love me for them.” But the man of action said; “How old fashioned! I shall corner the stock market, and that will bring her.” So the dreamer wrote verses, and he induced a friend of his, who ran a ten-cent magazine to print them. And the man of action cornered something or other and became a billionaire. In the meantime the girl married a man who inherited his money, and lived happy ever after. But the dreamer was so proud of his verses that he didn’t care; and the man of action was so busy that be didn’t care. The only one to suffer was the mao she married. —Exchange.

The other morning when Mrs. B ’s new neighbor accompanied her husband to the door as he was about to start on his way to his work, she lovingly called out to him: “Good-by, sweetheart.” Soon after Mrs..

SCHUBERT DIED IN POVERTY Estate of the Great Musician Was Estimated at His Demise to Amount to About $l7. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
SCHUBERT DIED IN POVERTY Estate of the Great Musician Was Estimated at His Demise to Amount to About $l7. Gilmnn writes as follows regarding the poverty of Franz Schubert (1797-1828), one of the greatest and most inspired composers the world ever knew, says the Denver News. “Schubert, who was almost the age of his contemporary, Shelley, composed his B minor symphony in the year of Shelley’s death. Like Shelley, he was too well beloved of the gods; Shelley died at thirty, Schubert at thirty-one. He was four-fifths peasant and he sang like a rustic angel. When he died he left behind him personal effects valued at a little over $l2 and some of the loveliest music in existence. A few coats, waistcoats, trousers, shoes, shirts, cravats, handkerchiefs, socks, one hat, one towel, one sheet, two bedcases, one mattress, one bolster, one quilt and a quantity of manuscripts appraised by the official inventory at ten florins (about $4.80). constituted his material possessions. Within a year of ...
OBJECTED TO WOMAN’S SKIRT Peculiar Reason Advanced by Chinaman for Refusing to Consider Matrimonial Alliance. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921
OBJECTED TO WOMAN’S SKIRT Peculiar Reason Advanced by Chinaman for Refusing to Consider Matrimonial Alliance. In spite of the success with which Ihe campaign against the binding of ivomen’s feet has been waged in China, there are still parts where men will jot marry girls who have natural feet. Missionaries try, so far as possible, to arrange marriages between Christian girls and Christian men. One of »ur Christian girls, writes a correspondent, was getting quite an old maid, having reached the age of twen-ty-eight. Several heathen had asked aer, but she refused them all. One of &gt;ur preachers approached a country tenant farmer and tried to persuade aim to ask the twenty-eight-year-old ady. We all thought it would come off. The man was about the same age is the lady in question, and had not ret succeeded in getting engaged. But, to our surprise, he would have nothing to do with the plan, and gave as his reason: “Who would marry a girl with a skirt like that?” The girl had ...
