GUEST CHARGED FOR INSULT Thl* French Hotel Proprietor Surely Went the Limit In the Matter of Extortion. “Many stories are told,” said Col. Elliston P, Masters at a Fort Sheridan tea, “of French extortions. But the worst I have heard was related to me by an army friend. “He went to a hotel in Paris without making a bargain about rates and dined altogether at restaurants with friends. “One evening, as he was starting out as usual, the proprietor accosted him in the hall and inquired: “ T hope you’re dining with us tonight, monsieur?’ “ ‘No,’ my friend answered, T have an engagement.’ “The proprietor, with a despairing gesture, exclaimed: “ ‘lt is an Insult to the establishment, monsieur, never to dine here.’ “ ‘Not at all,’ my friend answered, and thought no more of the matter. “But when he came to pay his hotel bill, although he had not eaten any meals there, he found this item: “ ‘Twelve dinners —350 francs.’ “ ‘But I took no dinners here,’ the guest protested to the proprietor; ‘yo...
TREASURE IN NORTH AFRICA French Writer Declares Land Is a Storehouse of Historical and Archeological Beauties. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
TREASURE IN NORTH AFRICA French Writer Declares Land Is a Storehouse of Historical and Archeological Beauties. North Africa —Morocco, Algeria—comprises, according to Louis Bertrand, writing in LTllustration (Paris), a storehouse of historical and archeological treasures unsuspected by the great majority of Frenchmen. France’s tricolor floats over these storied lands washed by the Mediterranean. M. Bertrand concludes that most of his countrymen visit the colonial possession much as they would visit a spectacular review or something of the sort, as a bizarre experience of strange sounds and colors and muscle dancers; whereas, if they would but open their eyes, they might behold dead cities raising up their heads and almost hear the echoing footsteps of the Roman legions. He points, in fact, to North Africa as the richest museum of Latin antiquity in the world, where the ruins of the imperial occupation are thickly strewn for leagues, crying out for the pick and spade of the excavator....
Challenge to Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Challenge to Thought. When you can’t do what you want to It’s a challenge to think. If you can’t do it, why can’t you? The chances are you will find It Is not right that It should be done at all. Or it may be that you are not the one to do It. You may want to swim the Niagara just below the falls so you can boast of doing what has not been done. You may want to fly to the moon so you can write of experiences never yet felt by man. You may even want to play the Jonah game so you can give your experiences of a few days in the deep. But you can’t do it. The why lies in the fact that you are not made for such exploits. To attempt any one of them would be to tempt selfdestruction. The crowd might stand by and watch you make the effort and when you failed they would call you a fool. When you can’t do what you want to —think.—Grit.

Expected It White. "Americans traveling for the first time in Europe,” said Senator Brandegee at a Hartford dinner, “display provincial crudeness in many ways, but the faux pas a Boston leather profiteer made in a fashionable Parisian restaurant was pardonable.

SWORD WORTHY OF OWNER Blade Worn by Miles Standish Has Been Traced to the Time of the Crusades. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
SWORD WORTHY OF OWNER Blade Worn by Miles Standish Has Been Traced to the Time of the Crusades. Among the relics of the Pilgrims that may be seen when visitors throng the old town of Plymouth for the tercentenary observances few are more interesting than the sword of Miles Standish. It may be seen in Pilgrim hall. It is a Damascus blade and presumably came into the possession of the Pilgrim captain from someone whose ancestors had brought it from the Crusades. It bears several curious inscriptions, which waited until June, ISSI, to be translated. Then Prof. James Rosedale of Jerusalem went with a band of Arabs to America’s most important shrine and found that the carved characters belonged to different dates —some in Cufic and very old. He was only able to translate one, of a later period, in Arabic. The words given here show that its spirit was quite appropriate to the spirit of the Pilgrims: “With peace God ruled his Slaves. And with the judgments of His arms He troubled the Might...
Rock Many Religious Associations [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921
Rock Many Religious Associations A report on the Dome of the Rock of Jerusalem is shortly to be published and will be of great interest to the Mahommedan world. It may not be generally known that this place is the third in sanctity of all the sanctuaries of Islam, and indeed for a short period it actually formed the Kibla toward which all Moslems prostrated themselves in prayer. Among the more important religious associations of this rock we may mention that it was here that David and Solomon were called to repentance, and on account of a vision David chose this site for his temple. From this same spot Mohammed ascended to the Seventh Heaven after his night journey from Mecca, and lastly it is to be the scene of the Great Judgment. The historical associations are not less striking, and such famous names as Omar, Abd-el-Malek, Saladin and Suleiman are all connected with the rock.—From the Zanzibar Gazette.
