The military forces of Holland, which the news dispatches say are to be reduced nearly one-half, find considerable employment In the East Indian archipelago, nearly all of which belongs to the Dutch. It is a considerable territory, covering a distance from east to west as great as that from New York to San Francisco. The wild native tribes are troublesome. But worst of all are the Acheenese, who occupy a little country at the north end of Sumatra. Acheen is an absolute monarchy, recognizing no authority or control from the Dutch or anybody else. One of the longest wars in history has been fought by the Dutch against the Acheenese. It wfis started in 1872, and has been going on ever since, with po present prospect of bringing it to an end. In former days the Acheenese, who are Malays, engaged#largely in piracy, In their swift sailing proas they scoured the seas, capturing ever...
CRUSHED BY TURKS Invader’s Heel Trod Heavily on Town of Aintab. Americans Are Busily at Work Helping to Rebuild Once Prosperous Little City In Eastern Syria. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
CRUSHED BY TURKS Invader’s Heel Trod Heavily on Town of Aintab. Americans Are Busily at Work Helping to Rebuild Once Prosperous Little City In Eastern Syria. Clustering red-tiled roofs, white stuccoed walls, the fresh green of graceful poplars, and minarets rising here and there In slender beauty—this is the picture greeting the visitor approaching through the mountains rimming It about, the once important town of Aintab, which nestles at the foot of Mount Taurus on the eastern coast of Syria, says the Christian Science Monitor. Aintab was not only beautiful, but prosperous in those days before the Turk invaded the land, swept it bare of its industry, scattered its people to the four corners of the earth, and deported them inland to the desert or outward to the fringe o t seacoast. Today, however, as one approaches more closely to the town, one sees that there are gaps in the rows of white stuccoed houses, that many of those picturesque red-tiled roofs are falling in, that many of t...
Pointer for the Housewife. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Pointer for the Housewife. The woman who reduces herself to a frazzle and her family to nervous wrecks does It by trying to do each separate piece of work to perfection. We all like a perfectly appointed household, but It is vastly more Important that a home should be comfortable, where the family likes to gather, than that no grain of dust should ever be seen. Housework, done right, is more healthful than almost any other work. Making beds is an excellent exercise for a sluggish liver, but don’t forget that a tired housewife may be rested and refreshed by a brisk walk In the fresh air. Fatigue is often caused from bad air, and with the lungs filled with pure air the body Is able to throw off the poisons. Pick out the important things to be done dally and do them, reserving time and strength for these tilings. The important thing is meals. They mean more to the family than anything else, as they are the fuel which keeps you going.—Exchange.
Oil Prospects in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Oil Prospects in Australia. Analyses of petroleum gas at Roma, Queensland, have been made which show it to be considerably richer than the gas from mogt petroleum wells. Using American standards of pressure and temperature in absorption tests, It Is estimated that the Roma gas will yield 2 pints of petrol per 1,000 cubic feet. The mines department has decided to continue boring below the gas strata, in the belief that oil will be found. Difficulty in obtaining casing Is delaying further boring at Marburg, Queensland. The bore Is now over .400 feet down, penetrating sandstones and shales which contain productive coal measures, while tests of a sample of the sludge from the bottom of the bore reveal a small percentage of oil.

MUCH IS TOLD BY PROVERBS Household Sayings Throw Light on Characteristics of Social Groups Whence They Emanate. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
MUCH IS TOLD BY PROVERBS Household Sayings Throw Light on Characteristics of Social Groups Whence They Emanate. It is a commonplace to say that a nation’s moral code Is revealed in its proberbs; but it is less widely recognized that proverbial sayings throw light' also upon the long-standing economic structure of a social group. A proverb is not an individual observation ; it condenses the experience of a class, a sex, a caste. A large number record the accumulated experience of the small peasant proprietor, his ceaseless labor and petty saving and screwing. “While the sheep hlntes he loses a mouthful.” / The economics., of married life are often tersely laid hare. “A wooden mother is better than a golden father” (Shropshire) must he taken from the outlook of a wife who would be summed up in a national census as “home worker.” “A rolling stone gathers no moss,” says the wisdom of the staid British, countryman, diligently making the best of his land by long and careful husbandry.

People of the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
People of the World. The total population of the earth is 1,699,000.000. according to the latest edition of the Gotha Hofkalender. The 1919 estimate was 1.646,000,000. The eastern hemisphere. Including Europe. Africa, Asia and Australia, has 1.494,000,000 people, while the Western hemisphere—the Americas —has a population of 205,000,000. The average density of population of the earth is 25.5 per square mile, while Australia is most sparsely settled —2.45 people per square mile. In North America the average population per square mile is 15. The greatest uncertainty exists as to the population of Persia, Abyssinia and the Congo, estimates- differing from 4,000,000 to 9,000,000. 8,000,000 to 12,000,000 and from 15,000,000 to 20,000.000 respectively, so that the total difference between the lowest and highest estimates Is 14,000.000. That difference is insignificant compared with a total population of nearly 1,700,000,000.

You, though, of course, are blind.’ “Love laughed carelessly. “‘Oh, no,’ he said, T simply shan’t be there to see.’ ”
Very Bad Indeed. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Very Bad Indeed. “You are not eating very much, Mr. Shyfnl,” said the girl coyly to the bashful suitor, who had been invited to the family Christmas dinner. “Yes,” he replied, and at last, for the first time during the evening, he got his chance, so seizing all his courage, he gasped: “To sit next to you. Miss Betty, Is to lose one’s appetite.”

Many people find a fascination in old newspapers. They like to read that such and such a paper Is the oldest In the country, or the first pne published In such and such a city. And when a newspaper changes owners, says a writer in the Christian Science Monitor, It is always sure, of finding interested readers for the scraps of its own history which it prints along with the announcement of the change.

Munsey’s New York Herald, in announcing recently Mr. Munsey’s purchase of the Baltimore American, referred to the American as “older than the government of the United States Itse'f,” and as the “second oldest newspaper in America,” many who saw the Item found their thoughts turning hack to the days when newspapers wefe far less common than they are today.
