B. Posey, “and he remarked that it was the biggest lot he had seen for years, and asked if they did not injure my crops. I replied that until I got onto a way to keep them out of my watermelon patch they ruined a lot of them hy pecking holes in one and then hopping for another. “I tried various ways hut without success, until I put poles around tiie patch and ran just an ordinary piece of cotton around them about eight feet from the ground, and between the poles tied pieces of cotton to flap in the wind. It worked like a charm. “A neighbor of mine used to say that he was advised to put an old umbrella in the middle of the patch, and he did it, but one day creeping up behind it, he peeped over It and there sat a bunch of. crows havi...

Superheated Steam. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
Superheated Steam. Two decades ago few' would have admitted the possibility of permanently regularly producing steam at temperatures of from 550 degrees to 630 degrees Fahrenheit within the restricted area of the ordinary locomotive boiler. Now thousands of locomotives use this superheated steam, and its use is increasing. By heating steam 180 degrees Fahrenheit above the saturation temperature “hot steam” is produced. With tliis increase of temperature the steam is dried and the volume is increased. But the increase of volume Is less important than fhe suppression of all condensation in the cylinders If the superheat, is sufficiently high. Hot steam being a bad conductor ir also reduces loss by cooling ii tire cylinders from 25 to 30 per ceru, ~v-cording cording to type and structure of the engine.

LAND IRRIGATED BY INDIANS Before the Advent of the Spaniards the System Was in Vogue Among the Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
LAND IRRIGATED BY INDIANS Before the Advent of the Spaniards the System Was in Vogue Among the Aborigines. Irrigation began in Texas many years before the lands embraced within Its boundaries became a part of the United States, years before those same lands made up what was known as the Lone Star republic, writes James K. Preddy in the American Forestry Magazine. To bring the time down to a more tangible date, the first irrigation work was done —according to tradition — when the Pueblo Indians constructed the peculiar ditches about El Paso and tiie Pecos country, which authorities of today claim were built for irrigation purposes. Another tradition coming out of the past tells that tiie.se ditches were built by the Yuma Indians when they were driven westward by the Comanches and Apaches, and not by the Pueblos. When Coronado, the roving explorer, opened this country to the Spaniards lie found well-worked irrigation systems among the Indians; this was in 1540 when he was pushing towa...

FROM LOWLY TOIL TO FAME Edwin Dallin, Ranked as Great Sculp, tor, Was Once Wheelbarrow Boy in Mine in Utah. One of America’s greatest sculptors, Edwin Dallin, was once a wheelbarrow boy in a mine in Utah, where he toiled all day for less than a dollar. The miners uncovered a stratum of white clay one morning, and Dallin, forgetting his work, sat down and began to model a likeness of one of the workmen. So lifelike was it that his teacher, when lie returned to school in the fall, sent it and some of his drawings to a state fair being held in Salt Lake City. A rich mineowper had his attention called to tiie little clay bust and lie offered to furnish the boy transportation to Boston where lie could enter an art school. The boy worked long and hard, and by the time he was twenty-one he had a studio of his own, the Detroit News recalls. He went to Paris shortly afterward and began a series of Indian poses, using the Indians from the Buffalo Bill show at that time in France. His first ma...
Formerly Our Superiors. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
Formerly Our Superiors. She was angry about the bill —insisted she had paid Ter The credit man stood listening attentively, attempting at intervals to break In on her flow of conversation. “You men want to understand right now that you can’t hoodwink the women any longer,” she blurted. “Little things like this —like sending out statements for bills already paid—won’t get you a thing. It won’t get you a tiling.” “Yes, madam, but I—” “And bear that in mind, will you? The old days are done. Women are men’s equals now.” “Yes, madam,” the credit man finally got in. “Yes, madam, women are men’s equals now—formerly our superiors.” Just what she said after that—well, the chronicler sayeth not.- Indianapolis News.
Is Capital's Best Speller. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
Is Capital's Best Speller. Frank B. Willis, Ohio’s successor to Warren G. Harding in tiie United States senate, qualified as Washington's champion speller during his term In the house. The National Press club staged an old-fashioned spelling bee at tiie Willard hotel, with the nation’s famous statesmen and rising young journalists as contenders for first honors. Senator Miles Poindexter of Washington, then, like Willis, a member of the house, stood to the end, groggy but dogged. “Ogee” was the word on which he finally w’ent down. He thought it meant something like “ouch” and lie couldn’t define it nor spell it. Willis’ years at Ada had taught him much, among other tilings how to spell “ogee.” He bowled Poindexter out and stood alone. —Gus J. Karger in tiie Cincinnati TimesStar.
Relief in Pictures. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921

The glasses of the viewing spectacles are also of complementary colors corresponding to those used in the printing, and when the picture is seen through these glasses, ii stands forth with startling appearance of solidity.
