SAILORS HOLD ODD BELIEFS Salt-Water Mariners Cling With Tenacity to Many Superstitions at Which Landsman Laughs. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
SAILORS HOLD ODD BELIEFS Salt-Water Mariners Cling With Tenacity to Many Superstitions at Which Landsman Laughs. Nearly all ships carry a horseshoe. Usually it is nailed somewhere in the stern. The horseshoe has been a fetish with sailors ever since Nelson nailed one to the mast of the Victory. Sailors have many superstitious. A sailor who wears a baby’s caul feels himself immune from death by drowning. And after a long trip the sailor who first sights land will have a good voyage home. Jack becomes decidedly uneasy if he hears “land-lubber lingo” on the ocean. Therefore, if ever you are a passenger don’t let him hear you refer to the deck of a cabin as the “floor,” the companion as the “stairs” or the alleyway as the “lobby” or “passage.” It is bad form, and unlucky. Whistling at sea stirs up evil winds. A cuttlefish swimming on top of the waves also betokens a storm. A squall may be expected when an albatross alights on the deck or when a seagull flies between the foremast and the...

MULE BALKED AT EXECUTION Obstinate to the Last, Animal Compelled Buffalo Bill to Completely Empty His Revolver. It was while serving as a scout under General Sheridan in his campaign against the Indians in western Kansas that Buffalo Bill, carrying dispatches, had to ride a government mule owing to the scarcity of horses. The mule broke away, and Cody had to walk 35 miles during the night with the animal just In front of him, but always out of reach 1 “Will, when he got really and truly angry,” says his widow’, “didn’t have the sweetest temper in the world. And by the time the sun rose he w 7 as just about ten degrees higher than feverheat in his attitude toward the mule. Suddenly, the soliders in Fort Lamed heard the sound of a shot about half a mile aw’ay. Then another and another and another. When they reached the place where the shooting had occurred they found Will standing over a dead mule, cussing energetically. “ ‘Boys,’ he said, ‘there’s the toughest, meanest mule I ever sa...
GERMANY LOST TOY MARKET United States and Japan Now Supply Canada With Playthings She Does Not Proc'uc«.e. . [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
GERMANY LOST TOY MARKET United States and Japan Now Supply Canada With Playthings She Does Not Proc'uc«.e. . The United States is now first In supplying those toys needed to supplement the output of Canadian factories. The additional quantity required by Canada to supply its own domestic trade amounted In the last year to $l,500,000 worth. Before the war Germany was the chief source of supply, but the United States now leads and Japan has likewise made a notable advance In its toy shipments to that market. In 1918 American exports of toys to Canady amounted to $273,138 and in the year ended March 31, 1920, the total was $1,136,372. Japan’s trade grew from $18,738 to $277,946 In the same period, while there was only a small increase in toys sent from the United Kingdom. The toy and doll Industry of Canada, according to Vice Consul Horace M. Sanford at Ottawa, has made considerable advance compared with prewar time, but imports were needed to meet the domestic demand. At the present t...

A young Indianapolis physician had been Invited hy a school teacher to accompany her to a dinner party at which he was an absolute stranger. He accepted the invitation, but at the last minute had to break it. “But you can take some other man and pass hinr off for me,” he offered, generously. “No one there knows me, so it’ll go all right.” The teacher, hesitated. “Bpt they know most of the men I know,” she said. And then a sudden smile came over her face. “I might take our school janitor. He’s new in the city, but you could give him some of your clothes and it would probably pass.” “But how does he talk?” asked the doctor, a little bit doubtful of the scheme now. “Oh, his talking is all right,” assured the teacher, and smiled wider than ever again, "There’s only one thing I’m not sure about. He chews tobacco, and I wondered If he would do without for that long.”—lndianapo...
American Gobs as Gondolier^ [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 March 1921
American Gobs as Gondolier^ American gobs are learning how to become gondoliers, and an American school has for the first time included gondolierlng as a regular course. In Venice the Knights of Columbus operate a social service club on the banks of the Grand canal, and in connection with the club the Knights of Columbus maintain a well-equipped school, run on the lines of the Knights of Columbus free night schools In America. French, Italian, Turkish and other languages are taught In the school to the men of the American Mediterranean naval unit, as well as navigation and other technical courses. Now gondollering has been added, as the American sailors relish driving themselves and their Venetian friends around the gem of the Adriatic in gondolas. Some of the sailors are becoming expert in handling the picturesque craft, Knights of Columbus Commissioner Edward L. Hearn reports.
