CAN LIVE CHEAPLY IN HAITI Food Costs Little, and Tips for Services Rendered Are Hardly Worth While Considering. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
CAN LIVE CHEAPLY IN HAITI Food Costs Little, and Tips for Services Rendered Are Hardly Worth While Considering. Labor and living are cheap in Haiti. There is a hotel in Port au Prince, rated as the best, that charges only $4 a day for a room and three square meals. True, the rooms are small, with the ancient washbowl, and unlockablc. with concrete floors and rugless. bu f they are clean and comfortable. The same meals could not be ob tained anywhere in the United State;, at double the price. Luncheon is a regular dinner and dinner is much like an eight-coux*se feast. They never serve less than two or three meats, when one, according t r the American habit, would be enough There is fruit in alfundance in Haiti and a boy standing on the front porch, overlooking the sea, often picks the breakfast oranges. The favorite dish is the chicken, served 365 days in the year without the least variation. Nobody ever wants to see a chicken after staying three weeks in Haiti. A Haitian boy, waitin...
Forests in Bohemia. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Forests in Bohemia. In the Bohemia lands (Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia) the needle forests predominate. The pines and firs cover 78 per cent of the forest area, the leaf timber 9.1 per cent, and the mixed about 12.9 per cent. In Slovakia and Carpathian Russia, the new territories, it is noteworthy that the leaf forests prevail, forming about 67 per cent of the whole, and the needle forests make up the balance, ‘or 33 per cent. Ownership of these forests is singular. The state owns about 1,400.000 acres, charitable institutions own 600,000 acres, municipalities hold 2.500.000 acres and the large estates, held by private owners, cover 8,000,000 acres. It must not be taken for granted that the extensive Czechoslovak forests were given over to the use of the whole people. On the contrary, all the benefits to be derived enured to the foreign nobility and the wealthy owners, when the mere walking through one of these private forests was presumptive evidence of a wrongful Intent. Of the va...
Beware. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Beware. Green, Brown and Johnson were Invited to Robinson’s Christmas dinner. On the way there Brown remarked to Johnson and Green: "By the way, you fellows, I just want to give you a friendly warning. Beware of Robinson’s champagne!” So when the drinks were produced, Johnson and Green said they would drink nothing stronger than lemonade. Much to their surprise, however, Brown did not follow their example, but drank the champagne. So on the way home they asked him: “What really was the matter with Robinson’s champagne?” “Oh, the quality \yas all right,” replied Brown quietly, “It was the quantity I thought would be deficient—not enough for everybody.”—London Idea*.
Miniature Hotise Helps. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Miniature Hotise Helps. A paint dealer has in his office % little house which is made of Interchangeable parts. The roof, for Instance, Is black and the side walls and porches are of some contrasting color. If he fishes to show the customer the effect of different color combinations he simply exchanges some of the parts of the house for other parts of different shades. He says It has helped him In many cases to secure contracts which otherwise he could not have closed so easily. The expense of the contrivance Is not great and It paid for Itself In a short time.

FACE TELLS TRUTH Not Infrequently Reveals One’s Calling to Observer. Characteristic Look Is Partly Developed by Nature of Work Which Is Individual's Occupation. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
FACE TELLS TRUTH Not Infrequently Reveals One’s Calling to Observer. Characteristic Look Is Partly Developed by Nature of Work Which Is Individual's Occupation. It seems to be pretty well agreed among those in a position to speak authoritatively that associated with the various occupations in life there is undoubtedly a type of face which more or less betrays the calling of its owner. Medical men, especially in hospital practice, find acquaintance with these types valuable. They may not be able, with the shrewdness of Sherlock Holmes or of other acute persons, to read a man’s past, present and future by a glance at him in the street, but tlfey are able to gauge with considerable accuracy how far the history of the case, as given by the patient, is a truthful one, and how far it tits with his probable occupation In life. Calling must certainly have some influence over the physiognomy of the cabman, the butler or the groom. Each frequently possesses a type of face which wears so chara...
Rat Heroes. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Rat Heroes. From Paris comes the news that the authorities are making wax* on rats. But the despised rat once did the French a good turn, according to Colonel Repington’s history of the war. He says: “On the parapets of the front trenches are what look like window flower boxes. They contain chemical materials for making a smoke screen to lift the German gas when it comes. All the rats in the trenches congregate round these smoke boxes when the gas comes, as they realize that they save themselves from suffocation. This process of lifting the German poison gas was discovered quite by chance. During a gas attack some straw was set on fire by accident and forced the German smoke up. The rats came In swarms to squat round the burning straw and gave the French the hint.”
Energy in the Atom. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Energy in the Atom. The knowledge of radioactivity, which has been growing since the discovery of the X-ray and of radium, has revealed the atom as a tremendous storehouse of energy. The atomic energy contained, for example, in the two-inch piece of chalk with which the lecturer makes his diagrams is calculated to be 300,000,000 foot tons —enough to raise 100,000 tons 3,000 feet. At present we do not know how to liberate the power. We know that it exists only by observing the spontaneous disintegration of radioactive substances ; but knowledge sometimes comes quickly; persons now living may see the day when atomic energy will be used. —Youth’s Companion.

TAUGHT USE OF PLOWSHARE How Legendary Chinese Emperor la Said to Have Encouraged Agriculture in That Country. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
TAUGHT USE OF PLOWSHARE How Legendary Chinese Emperor la Said to Have Encouraged Agriculture in That Country. In Europe the most significant of the gifts of the soil are wheat and flax; in China they are silk and rice. Old Chinese myths name Shen-nung or Slennung the “divine laborer,” a legendary emperor who is said to have reigned In the first half of the third millennium before Christ, as the father of agriculture. It was he who first made a wooden plowshare and taught the people how to use it. Shennung was one of the three emperors whom legend reveres as founders of the Chinese social system. It was Shen-tsan, or Sien-tsan, the wife of Huang-ti, another of the three, who taught the people the rearing of silk worms and the treatment of cocoons and threads and the weaving of silken garments, so that her subjects might no longer suffer from “chapped and frost-bitten skin.” The sanctuary of Shen-nung is still standing, south of Pekin.

Water as a Diuretic, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 18 March 1921
Water as a Diuretic, A powerful diuretic is water —its action in tins respect, drank by a healthy man, being very marked, and It appears impossible to explain its limitation by a mere increase in blood pressure, whether local or general; it has the power of increasing tissue change, and thus multiplying the products as fast as they are formed —and thus, by giving rise to increased appetite, provides fresh nutriment for the tissues, and acts as a true tonic In persons who are accustomed to take too little water the products ot tissue waste may be formed faster than they are removed, and, thus accumulating, may give rise to disease. Many gouty people are accustomed to take too little water, except in the form of a small cup of tea or coffee daily; a large tumbler of water drank every morning, and especially with the addition of some nitrate or carinate of potassium, will prevent a =fouty paroxysm.
