HAVE BRIEF SPAN OF LIFE Most Placer Mining Camps Flourish for a Little While and Then Pass Into Oblivion. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
HAVE BRIEF SPAN OF LIFE Most Placer Mining Camps Flourish for a Little While and Then Pass Into Oblivion. Exceptions to the rule governing mining camps, hectic activity and quick decay, are Helena, site of a one-time noted placer camp, and the tine city of Denver, where, in the summer of 1853, James H. Pierce panned out a little gold from a sandbar near the mouth of Cherry creek, a discovery that fired the expectations of thousands and started the historic rush to Pike's peak country. The fine and progressive city of Lewiston, Idaho, is another exception to the rule of oblivion that has been the almost unfailing fate of placer camps. While, strictly speaking, Lewiston was not a placer camp, but the outfitting point, at the head of steamboat navigation, for the stampede into the dear-water region, in the early ’oos, it was a placer camp in other respects, and in the wild spirit of earlyday gold hunting. With the sailing away of the steamship Victoria, bearing 350 Nome residents, most...
EFFECT OF MIND ON BODY Worry, Doubt, Fear and Apprehension Make the’ Physical Organism Susceptible to Disease. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
EFFECT OF MIND ON BODY Worry, Doubt, Fear and Apprehension Make the’ Physical Organism Susceptible to Disease. Since all of the cells of the body are mure or less intelligent and we think only with the brain but with the hysical organism, we can read'i:it our thoughts and convic- ■ jus mist affect, according to their j.atur.. all of these cells. We can Mnk health into them or we can think disease. What have you been telling these little cell minds in your body, ray friend? Have you been filling them with worry and anxiety regarding your health, with fear, with dread, with apprehension? Have you been filling them with doubts, with uncertainties, doubt of your ability, lack of faith, lack of self-confidence? When they are apparently sick, perhaps the victims of your negative thoughts, your discouraging moods, your despondency, are you going to think into them more despondency, more discouragement, more hopelessness, or are you going to stimulate them with hope, faith, confidence, expe...
Holland's Day of State, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Holland's Day of State, Although the Dutch are very democratic they still cling to the pageantry that surrounds the movements of their queen on days of state. A case in point being the opening day of their parliament, which is quaintly ceremonious. The queen rides in a gilded carriage through the streets of The Hague to the old Knights’ hall in Parliament square, and with crown on her head and her gold-braided prince consort at her side sits on the throne. At this ceremony the Dutch cabinet ministers are compelled by tradition to wear giddy uniforms resembling an old-time minstrel man in an admiral’s hat. After this one day of pomp the ministers and members of parliament put on their working clothes and get down to business, while the queen, who prides herself on being a typical Dutch woman with domestic tastes, lays her crown aside for another year.
Just Where He Had Left It [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Just Where He Had Left It Uncle Billy is getting old and ab-sent-minded. One day Aunt Sally, his wife, noticed that he was roaming round from room to room. Presently he called to her from the kitchen, “Sally, have you seen my pipe?” “No, Billy,” she answered, “Can’t you find it?” “No, I can’t 1” he replied rather crossly. “I’ve looked upstairs and all over, and I can’t find it,” “Didnf you leave it in the bathroom?” asked Aunt Sally. “No, I didn’t. I’ve looked there. Come and look yourself.” As Aunt laid down her paper she heard him laugh. “Have you found it, Bill?” she asked. “Yes,” he replied. “It was in my mouth.” —Youth’s Companion.
A Miner of Bullets. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
A Miner of Bullets. F. H. Lamley, an ore specialist, is removing lead and copper-nickel from the hill back of the target range at Camp Lewis, near Tacoma, Wash. By means of a “jig” operated by water power, he shakes the heavy metal from the earth which he is excavating. In three months’ time, he expects to get 100 tons of metal valued approximately at $2OO a ton, and having cleaned up at Camp Lewis, he will take his apparatus to other camp cites. All of the metal he mines was shot into the hillside by the boys of Uncle Sam’s army two years ago. Lamley works on a commission basis “First man to mine a target range.' says Lamley of himself. —Leslie Weekly.
CONQUEROR COULD NOT WRITE William I of England Signed His Name by a Cross to a Charter He Granted. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
CONQUEROR COULD NOT WRITE William I of England Signed His Name by a Cross to a Charter He Granted. In the collection of Norman charters sold recently in England, the property of Baroness Beaumont of Carlton Towers, York, there is strong presumptive evidence that William the Conqueror was unable to write, for a grant signed by him and Matilda, the queen, bears their crosses. This collection of Norman charters w T as made by the antiquary Thomas Stapleton, one of the ancestors of the barony of Beaumont, and has been preserved for centuries at Carlton Towers. Its sale is attributed to the costs of the war and the present high taxes. The earliest grant is undated, but was made between the years 1067 and 1079. It is in Latin, on vellum, and is a grant by Walderand (de Meulin?) for„ the salvation of the soul of his lord, William I, king of the English, and others, to St. Stephens church, Caen, of the Church of St. Mary. Inserted in their names are the crosses of the witnesses, William, ki...
TOP OF SNOWDON IS SOLD Ground on Britain’s Loftiest Mountain Has Recently Been Purchased by Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
TOP OF SNOWDON IS SOLD Ground on Britain’s Loftiest Mountain Has Recently Been Purchased by Farmer. Freak purchases are heard of from time to time, but it Is not often that the sale of a mountain is announced. For this reason alone the transfer of the summit of Snowdon, including several hundreds of acres of the slope which is grazing ground, and the ground on which is built the Summit hotel, by Lleut.-Col. Worsley-Taylor, to a farmer, is of more than ordinary Interest, . remarks the Christian Science Monitor. Mount Snowden —in Carnarvon —Is the most famous peak in the southern part of Britain; is well known to all fioliday makers, and Is of a bold and rugged outline and forms, with its subsidiary peaks, an Impressive range. The ascent presents no special features of difficulty If one of the five well defined pathways is used, but should the climber be bent on “pioneering,” and leave the beaten track, he should be prepared for anything in the way of mountaineering problems. The view...
Her Gift. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
Her Gift. A young woman was interested in charity work and in one family where she visited there was a little girl whose hair was the same shade as her own. Wishing to show her appreciation for the visitor’s kindness, the child called at her house one day and gave her a package, saying it was a little present for her, then ran away. On opening it out fell the child’s lovely braid—the only thing she had in abundance.
ANCIENT RACES PLAYED BALL Tossing the Sphere Is Supposed to Have Had Deep Symbolic Meaning Centuries Ago. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 25 February 1921
ANCIENT RACES PLAYED BALL Tossing the Sphere Is Supposed to Have Had Deep Symbolic Meaning Centuries Ago. Although It Is a proven fact that the game now designated baseball la of modern and purely American origin, the use of a ball In ceremonies and ‘games goes back many centuries. Four thousand years ago, In the twelfth Egyptian dynasty, a Coptic artist sculptured on the temple Beni Hassnn, human figures throwing and catching balls. A leather-covered ball used In games played on the Nile over 40 centuries ago, has a place among the many archeological specimens in the British museum. It has a sewed cover and Is In a remarkable state of preservation. The game of ball was prized by the Greeks as giving grace and elasticity to the human figure, and they erected a statue to one Aristonicus for his proficiency in it. Ancient medical practitioners were wont to prescribe a course of ball playing, where the modern doctor would order a diet of pills. It Is supposed that ball tossing had a de...
