Youthful Criminals [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
Youthful Criminals Youth seems to be showing unusual precocity. We have heard of a marvelous chess expert, not out. of childhood, of boys of tender age displaying learning that would be distinction for adults, of youthful musical prodigies, but these are not all Youth is as precocious in crime as in other lines. When the perpetrators of a darng offense against the law are detected it is not unusual to discover that they are mere boys. In kill ing of two detectives in a hold-up in Toledo one of the bandits who was caught is only 20 years of age and he is much more mature than others who have engaged in like occupations. In fact it is believed that a large percentage of crimes are commited by the youthful. In Paris it was found that the leader of a gang that had engaged in many daring burglaries was but 11 years of age. It is possible that the extreme youth of the gang may have been the best protection of the members from discovery, When a particularly nervy robbery takes place it is ...

This to Parents [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
This to Parents No one will deny that moat par* enta are blind to -many of the imperfections of ther children, and it is ©qually true that others see more of their questionable behavior, because in the presence of well-mean-ing parents their children learn to “toe the mark,” more or less. In a town where but few families have a curfew law for the children the authorities should adopt one for the whole town, and Monterey is sadly in need of such a regulation. Complaint is made by several citizens that small boys are n the habit of throwing stones on porches and against houses and doors, and at an hour when they should be at home either in bed or enjoyng the safeguar ds of the parental. We have heard no names mentioned by those making complaint. Most likely they do not know whose boys they are; nobody knows—cetainly not the parents themselves—and that is the sad part of it! If they knew it or even suspicioned it they would not only disapprove but take steps to prevent it. It is not sa...

“LION” AT LITERARY FEAST How Great Historian of Civilization Squelched the Jackals Who Had Imagined Him Discomfited. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
“LION” AT LITERARY FEAST How Great Historian of Civilization Squelched the Jackals Who Had Imagined Him Discomfited. Lyulph Stanley was an Englishman of whom Lowell said that he “knew three times as many facts as any young man whatever had any business to know,” He had but one rival in that line; Palgrave, who compiled the “Golden Treasury.” Much interest sprang up among their friends when the two went off on a trip together. “It’s an even chance which will return alive,” said one man, solemnly. When they did come back, Palgrave was pale, emaciated, silent; but Stanley, it seemed, was unmoved and more all-knowing than ever. One night. Buckle, the author of “The History of Civilization,” was laying down the law on every subject, with a magnificent pomposity that made the table quake. At last he put forth some statement about the burning of a witch, and set the date a century out of the way. Stanley, who was present, had borne some preceding Inaccuracies very well, with only a slight ...
Noises Made by Elephants. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
Noises Made by Elephants. The elephant uses both his trunk and his lungs in calling, and he has a large variety of sounds and combinations of sound with which to express himself, writes Charles Mayer in Asia Magazine. When rushing an enemy he trumpets shrilly, when enraged by wounds he grumbles hoarsely from his throat; % he expresses feat ..by. a snnrr, crassy trumpet ana r roar; and pleasure by a continued low squeaking through his trunk. When apprehensive of danger or when attempting to intimidate an enemy, he raps the end of his trunk smartly on the ground and trumpets. The peculiar noise sounds like that produced by the rolling up of a sheet of tin. In a moment of danger, the elephant coils his trunk to protect it from injury. When he is engaged In heavy work, such as piling lumber, he may use his trunk to balance the load he Is carrying on his tusks, but never to bear part of the burden. If an unharnessed elephant must pull a rope, he holds it in his moutji, taking good care t...
