JURORS AND TRIAL LAWYERS Men Who Render the Verdict Said to Have a Distinct Influence Over the Counsel. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
JURORS AND TRIAL LAWYERS Men Who Render the Verdict Said to Have a Distinct Influence Over the Counsel. Juries differ widely, Charles Russell used to say, for instance, that there was all the difference In the world between English and Irish juries, remarks the Manchester (Eng.) Guardian, Irish Juries enjoyed the fun and the drama of a trial; they entered into it all and appreciated the cut and thrust; whereas English juries were concerned more with wondering how soon they would be released. But there is a characteristic common to all juries. They have quite as much influence, though in a different way, over counsel as counsel have over them. One of the greatest of advocates, Scarlett, Lord Abinger, declared that his success was due chiefly to the rule he made of selecting one particular juryman, not necessarily the foreman, and addressing the argument as If to him personally. He would then work away till he felt that he had convinced this man and could rely on him when the verdict ...
African Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
African Seeds. Sixteen hundred of seeds and plants of African fruits, vegetables, grains and flowers not common to this country have been sent to the United States Department of Agriculture for a test as to their adaptability to American soil as a result of a trip made by Dr. H. L. Shantz, as agricultural explorer. Dr. Shantz accompanied the Smlthsonian-African expedition W'hich made a tour of Interior Africa from Cape Town to Cairo, penetrating the Orange Free State, the Transvaal, the Kongo, East Africa, the Sudan and Egypt, with side trips Jo other parts of the continent and adjacent islands.

Giant Eels. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
Giant Eels. It is said there are eels no one can land. Some years ago a giant conger was caught in shallow water off the shores of England. It measured 8 feet 8 inches in length and weighed 148 pounds. Congers half that size have been known to bite a man’s hand In two and to have driven their teeth through the blade of an oar. In 1913 Kakanamsku, the champion swimmer of Honolulu, was attacked by a giant eel, which dragged him under water, and held him there for nearly two minutes. He escaped at last, but at the cost of a finger from his right hand. Eels attain an immense size in the rivers of New Zealand and have been known to attack bathers. In fact, many cases of drowning have been proven to be where eels have dragged the bathers beneath the surface of the water.

RITES OF MOUND BUILDER^ How “Bundle Burials" and “Burials in the Flesh” Were Conducted by Ancient Race. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 February 1921
RITES OF MOUND BUILDER^ How “Bundle Burials" and “Burials in the Flesh” Were Conducted by Ancient Race. After an Indian mound has been cleared and surveyed it is stripped of the surface sod and excavated by a series of trenches. One mound, says the Southern Workman, contained no less than 45 “bundle burials,” with two “burials in the flesh” above of later date. These “bundle” burials were disarticulated skeletons that had been taken down from trees and made into bundles. In each “bundle,” as a rule, were the bones of from two to four individuals. They were placed end to end, lengthways, north to south, and formed a layer some ten feet long and five feet wide. They were placed on a carefully prepared bed of alternate layers of golden and bright-red sands, evidently of ceremonial import, and surrounded by several stone altars. On these, appropriate sacrifices were made to the dead; there were signs of fire all about. Some half-burned human bones in well-preserved oak charcoal were fou...

REALM OF DEATH ON EARTH Country in the Vicinity of Mount Ve. suvius Graphically Portrayed by Gifted Frenchwoman. The country at the foot of Vesuvius is the most fertile and best cultivated of the kingdom most favored by heaven in all Europe. The celebrated Lacryma Christl vine flourishes beside land totally devastated by lava, as if nature here made a last effort and resolved to perish in her richest array. As you ascend you turn to gaze on Naples and on the fair land about it — the sea sparkles in the sun as If strewn with jewels; but all the splendors of creation are extinguished by degrees, tis you enter the region of ashes and smoke, that announce your approach to the volcano. The iron waves of other years have traced large black furrows in the soil. At a certain height birds are no longer seen ; further on plants become very scarce; then even insects find no nourishment. At last all life disappears; you enter the realm of death, and the slain earth’s dust slips beneath your una...

iST INDIA SLOW TO CHANGE Eight Varieties of Marriage In That Region Remain as They Were in Manu’s Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
i\ST INDIA SLOW TO CHANGE Eight Varieties of Marriage In That Region Remain as They Were in Manu’s Day. There are eight varieties of marriage in India, all of them outlined by Manu, the great Hindu lawgiver, and it is not until one comes in contact with such examples of custom that one realizes how little the native Indian has advanced to meet modern ideas, an exchange says. The eight ways of marriage are: Brahraya, which consists In a gift of a girl bedecked with ornaments to a learned and virtuous bridegroom who has been invited for the purpose, accompanied by proper religious ceremonies. Daiva, or gift of a girl decked with ornaments to a priest who is at that time officiating at a sacrifice. Adsha, or gift of a daughter In consideration of a pair of bullocks given by the bridegroom. Parajapatya, or gift of a daughter after the father has thus addressed the couple: “May both of you perform your duties together.” Asura, or gifts of a girl after her relatives have given as much wea...
Razor Strokes to Shave. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Razor Strokes to Shave. There is a barber In London, England, with a nice taste for figuring, and he has computed the number of razor strokes that go to a clean shave. He offers to prove the general correctness of his count on any customer. “You shall keep the count yourself, sir.” says he. The first man counted 150 strokes made by the barber. “Much too low, sir,” said the barber. “But knowing you were counting I couldn’t help taking longer strokes. It takes more, sir, usually.” His own computation is that, on an average, It takes 200 strokes to shave a man. Now if he shaves so many persons a day, so many days a week, how many times does the barber use his razor a week?” “ ’Undreds of thousands, sir,” says the barber. Pinned to something more exact, he claimed 288,000 for one week.
Tests for Diamonds. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Tests for Diamonds. The true diamond is not cut by a file, has a specific gravity of 3.52 and a luster that shows clearly even when the stone Is immersed In water. A small drop of water dropped on the face of a clean, dry diamond preserves Its globular form and does not spread. When a line Is drawn on a diamond with an aluminum pend!, and It Is then rubbed briskly with moistened clptb, the line disappears. The commonest test is to draw the edge of the stone over glass; the diamond cuts It without much pressure, while the Imitation merely scratches it
First Payment of Rent. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
First Payment of Rent. It would l&gt;e hard to find exact records of the first rent paid. It is said that when the Germans conquered parts of Gaul, the land was parceled out to chiefs, lieutenants and private soldiers. In return the holders of the lands promised military service when ne’eded. Some of the land was given to favorites, who were allowed to pay in money Instead of service, and the system v was established. Rent was certainly known in the days that Rome flourished, there being Latin names for rent under long leasehold tenure; rent of a farm, ground rent, rent of state lands and the annual rent payable for the right to the perpetual enjoyment of anything built on the surface of the land.

Few Do Much Walking. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Few Do Much Walking. Statistics of mankind’s ambulation*, including young children and old persons, and taking into consideration the fact that nowadays there are tb* inclination and the facilities to ride more and walk less than our forefathers did, show that a fair estimale of the average distance walked during the 24 hours by the men, women and children of continental United States seems to be four miles. The postman and the policeman and the messenger boy walk far more niilss than four, so does the farmer, though the use of the tractor has taken some of the burden of agricultural work off shank’s- mare.
