RIDE HADTHRILLS New Zealander Probably Broke Many Speed Records. Fortunate to Live to Write of Mad Journey Across Precipice, and a Night of Terror. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
RIDE HADTHRILLS New Zealander Probably Broke Many Speed Records. Fortunate to Live to Write of Mad Journey Across Precipice, and a Night of Terror. A thrilling adventure In the timberlands of New Zealand is related by Mr. David Blake, who met with it as a result of a quarrel with a man named Smertz. Do you know the great divide on Mount Siberia? asks Mr. Blake in the Wide World Magazine. I had the contract for cutting out and sending down the timber from the upper slopes. Across the gulch, taut as a bow-string, a steel cable stretched for eight hundred feet. The kauri logs, slung to an underhung trolley running on huge sheaves, were sent over the wire to the other side, A guide rope, hooked to the trolley, served to check the run and ease the timber to the landing stage below. Rod McKenzie. Duncan and Smertz worked In my gang. It was the end of the day in late autumn. The last log —a monster twenty feet long by thirty In girth—hung ready for launching. I was on the point of giving t...
Famed Memorial Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Famed Memorial Trees. On the beautiful capltol grounds In Sacramento, Cal., there Is a group of trees set out because of their historical interest, says the American Forestry Magazine of Washington. There is a red maple from Antletam, Md.; a white elm fiom near McKinley's tomb, Canton, O.; a white ash from Vicksburg, Miss., and many others from equally distinctive points. These trees are studied with surpassing interest by visitors from many states and foreign lands. Could anything be more befitting to the memory of a fallen soldier than to plant a walnut tree grown from a nut produced at such historical points as these?

HAS FAITH IN HIS “CURE” Only Patient Who Tried Snake Diet for Leproey Died, but Doctor Holds to His Theory. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
HAS FAITH IN HIS “CURE” Only Patient Who Tried Snake Diet for Leproey Died, but Doctor Holds to His Theory. In practicing medicine for the bene* fit of the natives I worked out one theory in regard to leprosy, which is a fairly common ailment in the Archipelago. I asked myself why, since a snake sheds its skin, a man who is afflicted with disease should not be able to do the same thing. In Singapore there was a rich Chinese leper, known as Ong Si Chew, who asked me repeatedly why I did not bring him some new remedy for his disease. Since he had a large household of servants who took care of him, and his own carriages and rlchshas when he traveled, he was allowed to live untroubled by the authorities; but he was very unhappy, because he had tried all the remedies of the native doctors and was steadily growing worse. At last I told him that I had something that might help. He asked me what it was, but I would not tell him. When he Insisted, I answered, “Snakes.” “UHal” he exclaimed, w...
Polly Remembered Cyclone. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Polly Remembered Cyclone. A parrot, named Polly Langston, died recently at the age of fifty-three. A native of Missouri, Polly was a feathered prodigy whose remarkable talents included many vocal and linguistic accomplishments. She could sing and talk in English as well as Spanish, her mother tongue; pray and sing several of the old familiar hymns, which she had picked up at church and social gatherings, besides having a wide repertory of conversational “small talk.” At one time, when the circus came to her local town, and Polly had poured forth her sage salutations to the passing paraders, the attention of the late P. T. Bamutn was attracted to her and a large cash offer was made for her, but her owner could not be Induced to part with her. She remembered to her passing hour an event of her early life when a cyclone wrecked the town and brought death to scores of the Inhabitants. Polly survived by a miracle, but for more than 40 years afterwards whenever the dark clouds gathered sh...
To Weigh and Measure Children. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
To Weigh and Measure Children. To establish a standard table of the heights and weights of children a conference of representatives of the United States children’s bureau, the United States bureau of education, the United States public health service and various educational and private organizations working for the betterment of children has Just been held In New York city. At the present time various tables of measurement are in use by the different organizations engaged in weighing'‘and measuring children. The results of the tests are not comparable; also considerable confusion has arisen because of apparent differences In the standards of normal development as given out by the various organizations. A complete standard table will be prepared by a committee, and all future weighing and measuring of children can then be in accordance with their uniform table. The findings of the tests will be comparable and much greater use can be made of the facts revealed.
Failing Manna. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Failing Manna. Nobody had ever seen the laziest man In the Texas oil fields do a stroke of work, yet he already had a few deep holes bored in his land and was confidently predicting that some day be would strike oil. “How d’ye do It, Bill?” asked a neighbor. “Ye sit around yer pi-azzy all day and next mornin’ ye got a new hole as deep as any of us?” “It’s by the grace of God and the Wright brothers,” the laziest man confided. “The air passenger route to Mexico passes right over my place aud pretty near every day they throw a bum off the aerial express.”—American Legion Weekly.

ANOTHER SWAT FOR THE FLY Supreme Court of Maine Adds its Voice to Denunciation of Almost Universal Pest. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
ANOTHER SWAT FOR THE FLY Supreme Court of Maine Adds its Voice to Denunciation of Almost Universal Pest. The dog having had his day before the Supreme court in Washington, we now find the “busy, curious, thirsty fly” preening his wings in the solemn precincts of the Supreme court of Maine as a co-defendant. He finds few sympathizers. For his size he is the most malodorous and detestable Of beasts, and the mischief he does Is Immeasurable. In this case the court of appeal was told that a summer boarder had engaged rooms at a hotel for two weeks and had left at the end of four days, declaring the files Intolerable. The Supreme court upholds the plaintiff in his refusal to pay for his Infested accommodations. The Journal of the American Medical association makes the case the text of one of the most excoriating denunciations of the fly that have been penned; but will the fly care? Not a bit of It. “A fly,” wrote Emerson In his despair, “is as untamable as a hyena.” Probably a fly was te...
WILL TAKE LAND FROM SEA People of Holland Meet Problem of Expanding Population in Characteristic Dutch Fashion. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
WILL TAKE LAND FROM SEA People of Holland Meet Problem of Expanding Population in Characteristic Dutch Fashion. After many years’ deliberation the people of Holland have decided that they need more land, and, having reached that decision, they have gone about the acquisition of it with characteristic Dutch energy and determination, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. The program contemplates the building of a 80-mlle dike across the outlet of the Zuyder zee and gradual reclamation of parts of that body by means of smaller dikes and a filling-ln and pumping process. The damming of the north end of the Zuyder zee presents difficulties, not only on account of the length of the dam, but also due to the fact that at the Friesland shore end the water depth varies from 11 ts 38 feet. The foundation of the great dam will be, literally, billions of all sizes of tree branches, lashed together Into great bundles. These will be sunk, forming a supporting mat of enormous area. Upon this will be pla...
Plant Diseases Costly. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Plant Diseases Costly. Millions of bushels of grain, fruit and vegetables and a big tonnage of cotton were lost to American farmers last year by plant diseases, according to figures compiled by the plant disease survey of the Department of Agriculture.

Tuberculosis Ebbs and Flows. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Tuberculosis Ebbs and Flows. The decline of tuberculosis is likened to that of leprosy by Dr. Louis Corbett, lecturer In pathology at the University of Cambridge. Leprosy was formerly one of the world’s great scourges, but has become practically extinct in western countries. Tuberculosis seems to be following, as it Is declining at an increasing rate, its deaths having fallen off nearly 60 per cent since 1865. Apparent causes of the change are lessened overcrowding, otherwise Improved social conditions, more and better food, and the adoption of methods of real ventilation. The war has given tuberculosis a new lease of life In European nations, especially in half-starved Austria, where It runs riot. *

J|Pollte” Motor Horn. Motor announces the arr !^fiß le courteous motor horn, thp motor hom has been decffledly cacophonous. It squawks unpleasantly; it bellows alarmingly; it utters noises disagreably suggestive of nausea. Uut the new horn, which Is appearing on the market, has a tone that Is at once polite and powerful. It warns, yet does not offend the sensitive ear. The tone-adjusting mechanism Is so contrived and arranged that the horn is easily regulated for any degree of vociferousness, but It yet carries a warning to the pedestrian.
