WAS OUT TO SAVE MONEY Mrs. Newbride Had It All Figured, tc Her Own Satisfaction, at Any Rate. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
WAS OUT TO SAVE MONEY Mrs. Newbride Had It All Figured, tc Her Own Satisfaction, at Any Rate. "Yes, it does, as you say, give rather an air to the flat,” agreed the almost new husband. His wife had seated herself on the arm of his chair surveying their latest acquisition, the baby grand piano, which filled threefourths of the living room. “And now if we only had one of those nifty one-arm floor lamps,” mused the almost new husband’s bride. “Why, Bettina, it was only yesterday that you argued the piano would finish the room without buying another thing,” protested the almost new husband. “That was one of the arguments you used to wheedle me into buying!” “Well, of course, it saves us buying a luscious blue plush bed-davenport. &gt;r a graceful chaise longue or a library table,” she defended. “There simpiy isn’t room in this apartment for mivh besides the piano. It really is an economy in the end. But a lamp Is different. You know that a grand &gt;jlano is not complete...
House of 1,000 Rooms. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
House of 1,000 Rooms. A maze which forms a happy hunting ground for robbers, is the house formerly occupied by the ministry of w r ar in Vienna, says a correspondent. The great size of the thousand roomed house evidently attracts the attention of thieves and the military and police seem unable to keep them out. Ornaments, pictures, typewriters, everything and anything, even to the door knobs and knockers are constantly being carried away. When a thief, in the course of his wanderings, meets anyone, he simply pretends to have come on business, and-goes on until he comes to an unoccupied room, there he quickly gathers together anything he can lay his hands on, and departs. In many cases the robbers have an accomplice in the street to whom articles are thrown from the window,
Cream-Colored Moles. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Cream-Colored Moles. It is rather curious to find dead moles lying about dykesldes when mole-fur prices are so high, writes a correspondent from Scotland. I crossed a field' and at the exit I counted no fewer than 22 moles in a heap. These had evidently been thrown there by a local trapper as useless lumber. More curious still, I came on what may be called the unique in moles, A gardener had trapped four of these rodents of a decided cream color. No portion of the bodies gave signs of normal coloring. The gardener said he surmised there were more on his premises, but he had failed to catch them at the date he exhibited the four referred to.
Continental Camp Rediscovered. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Continental Camp Rediscovered. “Connecticut Village,” one of the camps of Washington’s soldiers in the Hudson highlands, the site of which has long been unknown, has been rediscovered by members of the New York Historical society.

Cow Gives 42 Tons of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921

In the two years her output of milk amounted to considerably more than 4,000 gallons and weighs more than 18 tons. In less than six years Moss Rose has had seven calves and given more than 42 tons of milk.
LET EYESJECIDE Wise Advice for Those Contemplating Matrimony. The Dreamer Needs a Brown>-Eyed Mate; Practical Person Should Choose Blue or Gray. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
LET EYESJECIDE Wise Advice for Those Contemplating Matrimony. The Dreamer Needs a Brown&gt;-Eyed Mate; Practical Person Should Choose Blue or Gray. Who make better mates, persons with brown eyes or persons with blue? Although no hard-and-fast rule can be laid down, those with brown eyes are more steadfast and faithful. Naturalists say that dogs or horses with deep brown eyes are gentler than those with the grayish tint. This applies equally to human beings. Brown eyes mean gentleness. The secret of married life is tolerance, which is another word for gentleness. It must not be imagined that men or women with gray or blue eyes are necessarily intolerant. But, generally speaking, character can be told from eyes. A man with wistful brown eyes probably will be a dreamer. Suppose he marries blue eyes—that indicate individualism and often egotism—after a while blue eyes will tire of brown eyes. Gentleness and dreaminess will be mistaken for weakness, and blue or gray eyes usually ...
System of Checks and Balances [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
System of Checks and Balances According to the Export Trade and Exporters’ Review, this is the way they cash a check in Greece: The check is presented to the teller. Indorsement is made in his presence. He makes out several copies of receipts for the amount, which receive payee’s signature. A bronze disk bearing a number is then presented to the payee, who waits his turn. The writing on the check Is now compared with the filed signature. If the check is on another bank this bank is called by telephone or a messenger sent and the check verified. The check next goes to the bookkeeper, where the depositor’s balance is brought forward and records made. An auditor is called and checks all proceedings as they are made. The customer’s number is then called and the customer presents his disc, identifies the check, verifies his signature on the receipts, and receives the cash. They fear the Greeks bearing chfecks.—Commerce and Finance.
Protest Against Burial at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
Protest Against Burial at Sea. The population of Saigon was greatly stirred some time ago on learning that the body of a young English woman who died aboard a steamer of the Messageries Maritimes was consigned to the sea despite the protests, entreaties and proffered compensation of her husband, who sought to have the body retained until the first port was reached. A petition was addressed to the governor of Cochin China, setting forth that burial at sea is a practice which originated in the period of sailing vessels when ships might remain becalmed for days, but, that it is no longer justified now that voyages are much shorter and ocean travel Ims reached as great importance as traveling on land.
New Source of Vanilla Extract [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 28 January 1921
New Source of Vanilla Extract According to experiments recently performed In London, the island of Jamaica may become a new source of supply for vanilla flavoring extract. It has been found that the leaves of the wild pimento tree which grows on the island yield a high percentage of eugenol, from which vanilla, or crude vanilla, may be obtained, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. The discovery is valuable economically as well as commercially, inasmuch as Isoeugenol, the half-way product between eugenol and vanillin, may be nlade by jacrel^ - fermenting the pimento-,! eaves.
