Washington.—The army appropriation bill, carrying approximately $329,000,000 and providing for a force of only 150,000 men in 1922, was passed by the house and sent to the senate.

rich’s Nest in a Clam Shell. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921

rich’s Nest in a Clam Shell. The goby (of which there are many kinds) selects the clean valve of a clam and uses this as the ready-made pest. The pair (for the goby mates with but one and is Jealous of any rival) hover round an Inverted valve and then the male scoops out the sand from underneath It, forming a cavity, the shell being slightly tilted and pressed into the sand. The female then enters the cavity and deposits her eggs on the lower (Inner) surface of the shell. These eggs are somewhat cigar-shaped structures, fixed at one end by a glutinous network that secures them firmly to the shell. Having done her work, the female then exchanges places with the male, who remains on guard, keeping up a constant current of water over the eggs by movements of the pectoral fins, and darting out at the approach of an Intruder.

Rubber Shoes Life Savers. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921

Rubber Shoes Life Savers. A fact which is probably only slightly known Is the immunity from the attacks of lightning which Is afforded by wearing a pair of rubbers. The person who assumes these coverings must be careful not to come In contact with anything except the floor. Providing he follows this instruction he can not possibly be Injured by the lightning in any way. The explanation Is simple enough. The electric fluid before it can pass into a human being or animal must first come in contact with the earth. Its passage from the earth to the wearer of the rubbers is, of course, stopped by the soles of the latter. So next time a storm Is brewing hurry up and get out your rubbers.

Dolls With African Burial. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921

Dolls With African Burial. Art galleries in New York last year exhibited specimens of African dollmakers. Perhaps the most interesting story of dolls in Africa is that which concerns the doll custom of a tribe dwelling near Lake Nyassa. When a member of the tribe dies a rough image of the dead person is made of rags or wood and laid away in a tent. Thousands of doll images of dead tribe members lie in the tent, and It is said that the tribe believes that the dolls are the embodiment of the souls of the dead men. By keeping the souls on earth they believe they are cheating the fiends which are supposed to lurk beyond life. .The tent is regarded sacred and only the medicine men art* permitted near It. me ente. “Dr. Fillers’ seems to be a fashionable physician.” “I should say so! He has patients at some of the most expensive health resorts In America and a waiting list of people whose health will give way as soot as they get money enough to consult him.” —Birmingham Age-Her-ald.

NATION’S BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921

NATION’S BUSINESS Tlie return to pre-war wholesale prices of four vegetables and a genera! downward trend in practically all foodstuffs lend credence to the prediction of a number of marketmeu that retail prices would soon be back to their former figures.
