Conspiring to Take Credit from the Wright Boys [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Conspiring to Take Credit from the Wright Boys Nothing has hurt the feelings of the learned scientists and the college taught men quite so much as the fact thai not one of their number but two common mechanics of common school education made the most spectacular discovery of the age, the airplane And now that more than a dozen years have passed by since Wilbur and Orville Wright, the two Ohio bicycle repairers, solved the puzzle of the air, these scientists are evidently in a conspiracy to take the glory from these two men. If you are a reader of any number of scientic mag azines you see it repeatedly. They are trying their utmost to place the wreath of discovery on the of tK-nf. Langley, the Smithsonian institution man who ascended a p ew feet over the Potomac in a complicated contraption wtyich came down into the river like a bundle of sticks. They insist that he learned the prnciple of flying a few years before the Wright brothers, nothwithstanding that his attempt after years .....
Moving' to and From Canada [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Moving' to and From Canada - Our Canadian cousins are gloating very freely over the immigration dur ing the last year from the United States to Canada. They say 50,000 of us have gone ovgf the Ine to settle abd that we took over $17,000,00 of Vealth with us. Maybe so. But when we look up |uir own immigration figures, It apAks that, up to about October 1,. ■king over -10,000 Canadians to the United States with Bprldly goods. At best, the w i unity is about IO'.OOO niy • -!:♦ cvt-ry ten •■nr population. You 1,..\v -.-ricus the you reflect on what it BB*nen one person moves away from a town of 10,000 inhabitants. Incidentally, the 10,000 net that we lost to Canada Is just about the number of people who moved from only one western state to California last fall! Canada is a fine country, if you can stand the climate and our neighbors over there are a fine lot of peopJe. We begrudge them nothing.
BUILDING HIGHLAND COUNTY HOADS [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
BUILDING HIGHLAND COUNTY HOADS (By Rembert D. McNeer) Having endeavored to point out in former articles the location and the kinds of road Highland county should build it remains to give some suggestions as to how the most practical type of road can be built. 1. It is ncessary to keep the roads we have now in a passable condition; but in order to do that and yet have money to spend on rock surfacing roads, better methods of road working must be used. I have seen men out with pick and shovel trying to do spme repair work on roads when the ground was as hard as a bone. Very little could they accomplish. When the ground is soft, in fact muddy, is the time to work the road. In the spring after the frost comes out of the ground, and before it gets dry, just so water is not standing on the road, if the earth roads are dragged with a split-log drag the ruts will be filled up, and the road crowned in the center. Then during the summer whenever there is a long wet season the roads should be ...
W here Prohibition Counts Most [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
W here Prohibition Counts Most Where does prohibition count? In many a city man the question arouses only cynical amusement. Indeed, many a city man points with a satisfied smile to scandals and violations of the law, to booze running and graft, to gang operations against the Constitution of the United States. “That is where prohibition counts.” Myopia in regard to social conditions is not an uncommon defect of the dwellers in cities. In the thousands of country towns prohibition has brought a new age of decency. The moral swamps have been drained. The baseball fields, the Y. M. C. A., the city clubs receive now much that once went into darlffened loafing hails of the small town saloons. To the small town and the country—half of the United States—prohibition is a social blessng almost beyond estimate Because of prohibition homes are hap pier, girls are safer, men are healthier and the small town is a better place to live in. There prohibition counts the most. —Chicago News.
Orbison Congratulated. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Orbison Congratulated. In a burst of oratory—he himself admits it was good—Charles J. Orblson. federal prohibition director, closed his political campaigning the day before election at Kokomo. “You can judge my work for the cause of democracy,” says he, “when you consider that on the fateful Tuesday, Kokomo went Republican by Its greatest Republican majority.” However, that is not the story Mr. Orbison tells regarding that day. He remembers the day by a bit of congratulation he received. “An old man came to me when 1 got through speaking,” says Mr. Orbison, “and he gripped my hand and shook It and said: “That was tine, judge, that was fine. You are good, but after all you missed your calling. You should have been a circus clown.” —lndianapolis News.
The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
The Difference. Mr. H. G. Wells has no exalted opinion of the works of modern authors, judging from the following story. Some time ago a friend was talking to him about the good times that novelists of today have compared with those of the past. “You modern writers do not work so hard,” he said, “and you are paid twenty times as much as you ought to be.” Mr. Wells gently shook his head. “You labor under a misapprehension, ray boy.” he replied; “the chief difference between the old authors and those of today is simply this: They die and their works live; our works die and we live —as best we can!”
“JUSTICE” HAS SIX FINGERS The Thousand-Kronen Note of' Czecho* Slovak Currency Takes Rank as a Currency. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
“JUSTICE” HAS SIX FINGERS The Thousand-Kronen Note of' Czecho* Slovak Currency Takes Rank as a Currency. While almost every country In the world has inflated its currency, Czechoslovakia has had the courage to deflate hers. Shortly after the founding of the republic in October, 1918, all the former Austro-Hungarian currency was called In by the government and for every two kronen of the old money one kronen of the new Czecho-Slovak currency was given, with the result that, while the Czechoslovak krone is depreciated in value and forms one cause of the economic distress it is nothing as compared with the depreciation in neighboring states. The gold reserve on which that currency rests has a unique history. Part of the money was printed in the United States. Indeed, the 1,000kronen note printed In the United States is the most artistic issue the Czecho-Slovaks possess, in spite of the fact that the artist gave the symbolic figure of Justice six fingers. But the government was confront...
World Using More Coconut Fat. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
World Using More Coconut Fat. For many years past the world’s production of animal fats has been steadily diminishing. Lack of such fats spelled famine in Europe during the war, %hen great quantities of them were withdrawn from human use to make glycerin for high explosives. Even now, and in this country, there is an insufficiency of animal fats (as Indicated by the price of butter), and to make good the shortage coconut oil is being imported in enormous quantities. During the last year 345,737,913 pounds of this oil were brought into the United States. The oil is largely used as a cooking fat, but also in the manufacture of nut butter, csndles, soap and cosmetics. It is said to be an excellent substitute for cod liver oil, being highly digestible and with the advantage of an agreeable flavor. At ordinary temperatures coconut oil is a white, butterlike solid, The raw “meats” are dried in the sun before shipment from the tropical countries where coconuts are grown. In this shape the ...
Famous St. Andrews, '* [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Famous St. Andrews, '* Ask any man keen on outdoor games what St, Andrews Is famous for and he will reply, without hesitation: “Golf.” The sage who said that the Scots were brought up on porridge and theology is sometimes thought to have only partially stated the case, as he said nothing about the “royal and ancient game.” The coastal towns of Fifeshire are indeed famous for their golf courses, but the Mecca of all those who “run aboot wi’ a bag o’ sticks after a wee bit ba’ ” is certainly the royal burgh of St. Andrews. Fifeshire was once described as “a beggar’s mantle fringed with gold,” but most people think it was the big golfing centers, and not the seaport towns themselves, which were thought to be the golden fringe. However, golf attracted visitors, and visitors mean more trade, but it is interesting to hear that trade is being improved also fry the export of iron golf heads to tte United States, fhis will all help tq get the exchange vajue ,of the f’bawr hee” back to normal...

, , T -r V, it * • CHURCH A REFUGE \ f Pews of London Edifice Made Into Sleeping Places. All Who Facedf Night In the Streets Made Welcome at Old St Mar. tin's- in-the-Fields. St. Martin’s-in-the-Fields always during the last war years, and now, a place of midnight shelter for people stranded in London streets —was a haven to some of the mothers who had come from distant towns to attend the ceremonies in memory of the unknown soldier dead, and to soldiers who otherwise must have tramped the streets, says a writer in the Manchester Guardian. Long before midnight they began to come. In the light of the flickering candles on the white altar and the few lights shining on the white ceiling of the gallery one saw two or three w T ell-dress&gt;ed women sitting in the pews on oue&gt;side and two or thrde men on the other, and wondered whether it were worth while keeping the church open and two policewomen in attendance for so few wanderers. But the sound of heavy breathing, s...
Buckwheat and Cakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Buckwheat and Cakes. Even though there is great satisfaction at the breaking of five crop records in the United States Uiis year, many an American r|ust heave a sigh as he reads that the buckwheat crop has never exceeded the production of 1866, and that this season it is 8,000,000 bushels below the top yield of that year. Who does not know that the decline of the buckwheat cake as the backbone of a hearty breakfast Is the cause of the falling off? • The buqkwheat cake was once an American institution. It followed the pioneer from the Atlantic coast Into the depths of the Middle West. Its artlies were home-made sausages and sugar-house syrup. It held the from early November until the sap bes gan to run in the spring. Then there followed plentiful doses of sulphur and molasses to rid the blood of Impurities supposed to be the result of buckwheat’s heating qualities. But who cared? Wasn’t the kind of cakes that mother used to bake on the soapstone griddle worth even such a price? —Prov...
Catch Salmon at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Catch Salmon at Sea. Fishing for salmon is prohibited at the present time in nearly all the rivers of Alaska and altogether in the southeastern part of th«k territory. Meanwhile the fishery goes on; but It is a marine fishery. The salmon are caught on their feeding grounds out at sea with purse seines, gill nets, floating traps and fish lines. Trolling for salmon is great sport and is particularly fine off the straits of San Juan de Fuca. ' Unfortunately, very many of the salmon captured at sea are not yet full grown. That they should be taken before they are mature means fewer to run up the rivers to spawn in coming years.* It helps to make the outlook for the future of the fishery a bad one. * ‘-‘i * *

Forced to Return to Coal. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Forced to Return to Coal. The oil-burning engines of the Canadian Pacific railway in the Canadian Rockies are now being converted to the use of coal. It is expected in a short time all the engines running west from Field, British Columbia, to Vancouver will burn coal instead of oil. The Canadian Pacific steamers in the British Columbia coast service also will be converted into coal burners. This is due to a shortage of fuel oil.
