Dodged Seven Years’ Bad Luck. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Dodged Seven Years’ Bad Luck. “Traffic gets held up in queer ways,” said a patrolman at Forty-second street and Fifth avenue. “It was only just the other day that we had a blockade that tied things up for half an hour. I noticed a young woman pounding something against the curb. Looked funny to me and I couldn’t figure out what It was. People passing by started to run, looked again, and crowded around her. I headed for the middle of the bunch and saw she had busted open her package and was breaking a lot of mirrors on the sidewalk, one by one. “What’s all this about?” I asks. “Oh, mister officer,” she says, “I broke a mirror a while ago, and If I don’t break seven more right quick I’ll have seven years’ bad luck. By rights they should be broken all at once, but I could only do one at a time. And now, please, won’t you help me get out of the crowd?” —From a New York Letter to the Pittsburgh Dispatch,
Improving Indian Pottery, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Improving Indian Pottery, The Hopl Indians of the Southwest have always been famous for their pottery, in the manufacture of which (though unacquainted with the potter’s wheel) they were skilled even In prehistoric times. There Is a considerable market for their pots, which are quaintly and attractively decorated In black and colors. The United States bureau of standards is trying to help them by suggesting Improved processes, and recently it has shown them how to make from cheap material a black stain much superior to the one at present used by the Indians. They have shown themselves glad enough to accept the help offered and it may be that we shall yet learn of useful suggestions to the Navajos in the line of blanket making and the production of silver ornaments.
Fire-Proofing Cotton, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Fire-Proofing Cotton, A process has been devised for treating baled cotton with a chemical compound which renders it flame and spark proof and at the same time apparently provides an Inch or two of cotton in condition to aid in rapid drying without deterioration In case a bale is exposed to weather. On an average. 20,000 bales of cotton are destroyed by fire before the crop is marketed and most of this loss can be traced to flash or spark fire. Cotton stored In suitable warehouses would be evidence of a progressive step, for there is probably no crop of so great value that is treated with so little thoughtful consideration. —Scientific American.
COFFIN Of ATTILA Burial Place of the Great Hun Leader Reported Found. Tradition as to Final Resting Place of “Scourge of God" Seems to Have Been True. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
COFFIN Of ATTILA Burial Place of the Great Hun Leader Reported Found. Tradition as to Final Resting Place of “Scourge of God" Seems to Have Been True. A correspondent of the London Times reports the discovery in southern Hungary of what archeologists declare is the coffin of Attila the Hun, known to the Christian nations of the Fifth century as “the Scourge of God.” The find was made in the bed of the Aranka river, a small tributary of the Theiss between the towns of Szegedin and Temesvar. This discovery seems to support the persistent tradition regarding the great Hun leader’s burial which has lived for almost 1,500 years. His death occurred soon after his invasion of Italy and on the night of his marriage. Hts body was carried across southern Austria at the head of his army and In Hungary, at a spot which was known only to a few of his chief officers, the corpse was inclosed in three coffins, the first of gold, the second of silver, and the third of iron, and buried. The captives ...
Important Medical Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Important Medical Discovery. Great possibilities have been suggested by tlie method of making new blood discovered by Dr. W. J. Penfold of the Australian Commonwealth Serum institute, London. In preparing diphtheria and other serums, the plasma or fluid of the blood drawn from horses has been separated after the rod corpuscles have settled, and the latter have been thrown away. Conceiving that this practice might bo- Improved, Doctor Penfield returned the red corpuscles into the veins of a horse that had been bled. The result of this injection was an astonishing quickening of the formation of new blood; and, while the normal average of blood in a horse is 38 quarts, it was found that 50 quarts in a week could be drawn from the animal without lessening vitality more than the usual smaller bleeding. The composition of the blood was not materially affected. Following the first experiment, the red corpuscles have been returned to the entire 30 or 40 horses * bled in the institute, and t...
Lightship’s Perilous Voyage, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Lightship’s Perilous Voyage, Ships were imperiled when Nantucket Shoales beacon, the leading mark for transatlantic shipping making port at New York, was torn from its lonely and important station by a hurricane. After inquiry from several ships that missed the floating beacon and almost anxious search by a wireless combing of the seas, the mystery of the lightship’s disappearance was solved when she put in at New Bed* ford. The lightship had been thirtysix hours making port on a run of 100 miles. The hurricane, which blew her away and snapped the moorings, reached a velocity of ninety miles an hour. Mate L. O. Johnson, her keeper, said that it was much as he and his fifteen men could do to hold their own. Light vessels are not built for speed, and their emergency equipment is not often called on.
Owes Her Life to Parrot [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Owes Her Life to Parrot Her parrot’s shrieks saved the life of a young woman in New York city. The parrot watched its mistress mix up a tumblerful of iodine and wood alcohol and drink it. When she dropped to the floor the parrot shrieked. The woman had quarreled at the breakfast table with her husband, who had gone into the front room, while his wife went into the kitchen. As soon as he discovered what the parrot’s screams meant, he administered milk and eggs as an antidote. A doctor summoned by a pol ceman said that the young woman would recover.

MONTEREY, FRIDAY MAR U, 1921 [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
MONTEREY, FRIDAY MAR U, 1921 One of the Highland school boys, while at home on his holiday vacation in December, referred to the fact that, when on one or two occasions, he nad spoken of his home being in Highland, he was greeted with the comment: “Oh yes you live out there where they make moonshine!” It has been previously noted that the term, “out in the mountains” gives license to all sorts of conclusions and comments —even slanderous and unjust—and that this county outside her borders, ranks with other mountain counties as the home of illicit stills, there is little doubt. Thot injudicious critics should thus conclude is perhaps natural, but the charge is without foundation in fact. The Recorder has always stood in line for temperance, and now that we have prohibition, it is uncompromisingly in favor of law-enforcement, hence would not try to deceive or cover up violations of the new act, but, based upon the judgment of strong temperance advocates and law adherents, it is in a p...
Vast Amount of Time Has been Added by Auto [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Vast Amount of Time Has been Added by Auto “The unlimited power of the auto mobile, its flexibility when traversing crowded streets enables users to cover three blocks in the same time it used to take them to cover one,” says Sidney Bowman. “This economy of time has in a great many instances made possible men having a multitude of interests, due to doubling the number of minutes in their working hours . “This is what thejautomobile has done for business men and women and m it has been a natural result that the business world would expand because of it. I lay a great deal of the rapid growth of the country the lost five years to the fact tha people have been able, through the automobile, to accomplish more in a shorter period of time, as the growth of the concern or city depends upon the activities of its emplyees or its population. “In the home or social world, the operation of the automobile has been reduced to such simplicity that it is now regarded as a safe vehicle for women to ...
Champ Clark Dies, His – Term Near End [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Champ Clark Dies, His - Term Near End Washington Mar. 2—Former Speak er Champ Clark, a Democratic leader of the National House of Represent atives for twenty years, died to-day ‘in the harness,” the way he wanted to go, as he had often told his colleagues, and as he had prayed in the last few days when he saw the inev itable approach of the end. He would have been seventy-one years old next Monday. Death claimed him only two days before the end of twenty-six years (the last twenty-four continuous) service as Representative of the 9th District of Missouri, stepping in just in time to prevent his forced retirement, following defeat for re-election last November. His last message, given through his sm. Col. Bennett Clark, in one of the moments of conciousness of the last day or two, was a hope that Congress would not let his death interfere with the completion of its legislative programme. This was announced on the floor ten minutes after his death. The House, nevertheless, with its bu...
