ALMOST LOST BIG DISCOVERY Predatory Bird Carried Off Pod Containing Precious Seed That Produced Burbank Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
ALMOST LOST BIG DISCOVERY Predatory Bird Carried Off Pod Containing Precious Seed That Produced Burbank Potatoes. Luther Burbank recently told Colorado potato men a Story of his discovery of the world-famous Burbank potato, which has only recently come to light. While Burbank was experimenting with potatoes about twenty years ago he noticed* In his patch one plant which held one particularly promising pod of seeds. To his practiced eye these seeds and the plant which bore them would contain the germ of a new and excellent potato. If he had thought It necessary he would have put a watchman over this one small seed ball. As It developed later, the money that would have been required for-a watchman would have been but a minute drop of silver In the ocean of gold which this one pod was destined to produce. Every morning Burbank would go to the patch to see how the pod was faring, and often during each day he would look at the plant to discover the time when the pod could be picked. One ...
HAD NO ANSWER TO THAT Georgia Man's Assertion Concerning Watermelons Left Upholder of Indiana Product Gasping. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
HAD NO ANSWER TO THAT Georgia Man's Assertion Concerning Watermelons Left Upholder of Indiana Product Gasping. Harry Grimsley, a Terre Haute Rotary club man, comes from Georgia and Is still in love with his native state. He boasts of Its wonders, and the last time he discoursed on it, was telling of the wonderful bargains he got in watermelons. “Why, we got the very biggest ones for only five cents,’’ he said. “But they aren’t so big as the ones we have up here,” persisted one of his listeners, “Why, out on my farm we had some half as big around as half the top of this table. We didn’t eat any of it except the core, and yet the whole family had enough of it and more,” “Down there,” drawled Mr. Grimsley In his most southern drawl, “we never eat nearer than two feet of the rind of the melon and yet there’s always more than enough for a family in one melon.”—lndianapolis News.
Sacred Mohammedan Rock. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Sacred Mohammedan Rock. A report on the Dome of the Rock of Jerusalem Is shortly to be published and will be of great Interest to the Mohammedan world. It may not be generally known that this place Is the third In sanctity of all the sanctuaries of Islam, and Indeed for a short period It actually formed the Klbla toward which all Moslems prostrated themselves In prayer. Among the more Important religious associations of this rock we may mention It was here that David and Solomon were called to repentance, and on account of a vision David chose this site for his temple. From this same spot Mohammed ascended to the seventh heaven after his night journey from Mecca, and lastly It Is to be the scene of the Great Judgment. The historical associations are not less striking and such famous names as Omar Abdel-Malek, Saladln and Suleiman are all connected with the rock.
Self-Luminous Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Self-Luminous Animals. Not less than 36 different orders of animals are self-luminous, we are told by the new work of E. Newton Harvey on “The Nature of Animal Light.” These Include many forms of protozoa, hydrolds, jellyfish, bryozoa, polychaete and oligoehaete worms, brittle stars, Crustacea, myriopods, Insects, mollusks, primitive chordatee and fishes. ’ None of the luminous species inhabit fresh water, all being terrestrial or marine. The luminosity is sometimes shown by both larvae and adults, and In a few instances by eggs. In experiments made, two substances have been isolated —luciferase, an enzyme, an&lt;} luclferin, a proteid—and the light appears to result from bringing these together In the presence of oxygen and water.

Smoke Injures Galvanized Iron. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Smoke Injures Galvanized Iron. Galvanized iron has been found by a German chemist to be unsuitable for roofing much exposed to smoko. Sulphur dioxide, though having little effect when dry, causes rapid deterioration In presence of moisture, and a mixture of salphur and carbon dioxide is very corrosive, though moist carbon dioxide alone has slight action. The microscope shows In the corroded galvanized Iron minute cavities and sulphate containing ferric oxide, due to galvanic action or actual solution of the zinc coating.
Tells of Web-Footed Men, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Tells of Web-Footed Men, The most curious tribe, called Agmambu, are to some extent web-foot-ed, and the skin of their feet is “as tender as blotting paper.” They live In a marsh and are so much at home In the water that they seem “to stand upright in that element without any perceptible effort.” They catch ducks by diving under them and catching the birds’ legs. “Their diet consists chiefly of fish, water fowls, sago and the roots of water lilies. They keep pigs, swung in cradles, underneath their houses (which are in the water built on tenfoot poles), lying on their bellies with their legs stuck through the bottom, and feed them on fish and sago. The dead are ‘buried’ by being tied to a stake, the body secured well above flood level.”—From “Some Experiences of a New Guinea Resident Magistrate,” by Capt. C. A. W, Monkton.
