1 ' " Sunday Morning, June 5, IQ21 PAtATA DAILY NEWS PAGE 3 EVE WAS JEALOUS Kabyles' Version of Tragedy in the Garden of Eden. 8erpnt Said to Have Used Mirror to Induce Woman to Partake of Forbidden Fruit The Kabyles of northern Africa are an Independent people as mountain climbers are apt to be. They are not Arabs, and are far superior In hon esty and Integrity to the Arabs of Algeria. Kabyle women go unveiled and en Joy considerable freedom. The peo ple as a whole are said to be de scended from north European races, perhaps remotely . the same from which came the ancestors of our own Pilgrim Fathers. They are white, fresh-skinned folk, often blonde. At one time they were Christians. Now, although they are nominaHy" Mohammedans, they still retain many Christian customs, and their legends Abound In carious distortions of Bible tales. ' They have a peculiar version as to how Eve came to eat the apple. The serpent asked Eve If she knew the real reason why the Jrult of the apple tree had been forbidden her. She was all curiosity at once. "Be cause," explained the serpent, "the apples are wanted for Adam's second wife." Eve was sure he was lying for was not she the only woman In the world? "No," said the serpent, "you are not. -Come to the corner of the garden to morrow and I will show you another woman." The next day she came to the place appointed. The serpent held up the world's first mirror and Eve looked through the bushes Into the mirror and saw what She supposed was another woman. In a rage of Jealousy Eve went 'and ate the apple. Such warped versions of the Bible are slowly being -corrected nowadays by all too few Christian missionaries. One athletic, cllff-cllmblng preacher has told the story so constantly that hie has been called the "Lord Jesus man" or"Lord Jesus" for short In a certain village he has a special Kabyle friend called Moses. So when he visits this particular village, ev eryone calls to him, "Hello, Lord Jesus, are you going to the house of Moses 7" He Is a good" tooth puller and a fair physician and combines these arts with his preaching. Although -a learned man, he makes himself a friend of the people and will help a man catch an errant goat, or sit down with a family In a cobble stone hut and eat with them a meal of cous-cous, acorns and thrushes' brains as easily as he will 'lecture be fore a learned society on the enty mology of the Berbers. WillardTrlce, in the Christian Herald. First Phonograph Disk. The first phonographic disk Is still In existence, In the Smithsonian In stitution at Washington. It was made In 188,. by Emil Berliner, and the first song sung on a phonographic disk was "The Sweetest Story Ever Told." The original disk that Berliner ex perimented ' with Is of glass. A coat of soot was rubbed over the surface. The revolution of the machine caused the needle to scratch the sound Into the glass, and thus make lines. Thus the voice of a person singing into the horn was recorded. From It a zinc disk was then made, and a copper matrix was the next step. rom tne matrix all records were cast Thirty four years ago all finished records were of rubber. Today the finished record Is made of various chemical compositions, with a good proportion of rubber. ' v There were five steps in casting the first disks, whereas today only three steps are necessary. First, there is the wax disk, which records the voice. Then the matrix is cast and finally the complete record. " . LETTER 7r7 MMuTid YEAKS Missive Returned to Germany When Authorities Fall to Find ' Addressee. Berlin, Germany.

"Blueprints," turned loose ten inches of reading matter in Friday's edition on Palat- ka's jocular claims Of the state ama teur chamnionshio.' Although his grammar is bad a general idea of what he means can be gathered irom the ebulition printed below: Palatka is handing out a lot of bunk about claiming the "amateur' chamDionshin of the state. Isn't the month of May a little early to start that noise, Fearnside? Also, isnt v customarv to trim the titleholder be fore talking the crown? What's the matter, is your money getting low Don't you beleive you'll be able to hold onto such "amateur" stars as you've got until the season gets under wav? .And dont overlook Orlando Tanma. elc. they have some fair "amateur" talent over in that section Keep up that line of chatter, Fearn side: vou've got Palatka the laugh ing stock of everybody in this section already.

We were informed on all sides that "Pa latka ought to get a better ball play er for the money they pay Lepper." It is hardly likely, that Mr. Lepper would leave though, even if his salary was cut off, because Palatka is such a delightful spot to spend the hot sum mer months. v Senors Villarino and Larzo much prefer the climate there to that of Cuba. And Jackson, alias Cohen in .the State League last year, says Lakeland is not a comparison. We note from this morning's dispatch to the Times-Union that plans are under way to settle the tie that exists with St. Augustine. But don't get excied, dear Fearnside, if the games are not played next week.'
