The Algerian Donkey. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 27 January 1894
The Algerian Donkey. The donkey in Algeria rarely has a saddle. He has a pad very similar to the pad on which the bespangled queens of the sawdust ring dance their short hour to delighted boys and rustics. The pad has no stirrups and is so wide as to make a seat on it extremely tiring to the uninitiated. The Arab sits astride or sidewise, and as the pad is rarely girthed, or at best by a slender rope, it is like walking a tight rope or managing a birch bark canoe to sit on it until you “catch on.” Between this pad, which serves equally for loading orriding, and the saddle of the Spahi there is a vast category of sizes and styles, all, however, much too wide. A pair of stirrups is often improvised by tying two hags together, putting them across the pad, turning in one corner and thrusting the foot into the pocket thus made. The flimsy pretext for saddle or harness used all over the east would be cast on the dump by the poorest American farmer. He would not risk bis hones with it. —Co...
Facts About Caves. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 27 January 1894
Facts About Caves. Caves have in all ages of the world excited the awe and admiration of mankind and have been the centers around which cluster many queer legends and superstitions. They were the abodes of the sibyls and the nymphs of Roman mythology, and in Greece they were the early temples of Pan, Bacchus, Pluto and the moon. They were also the places where famous oracles were delivered. Their names not uufrequeutly show the survival of some superstitious ideas of the earlier world, for example, the “Fairy’s,” “Dragon’s” and “Devil’s” cave, which are so numerous all over the world. Cave superstition remained longer iu Germany than any other country, and the “Little Men,” which formally were supposed to iuiiain't tho forests, are in some Rhenish localities still believed to exist in the form of “cave elfs.” —Philadelphia Press.
I TO TILLERS OF THE SOIL Hints That May Prove ot Benefit to Our neighbors. Articles of Undoubted Worth to the Farmer, Collected From Reliable Sources, THE APRICOT IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 27 January 1894
I TO TILLERS OF THE SOIL Hints That May Prove ot Benefit to Our neighbors. Articles of Undoubted Worth to the Farmer, Collected From Reliable Sources, THE APRICOT IN FRANCE. The apricot growers will read with interest the essay which we shall print below from the pen of Mons. F. Jamin. This paper was read before the Royal Horticultural Society. It contains many chances for striking contrasts with California experience—notably in the weight of the crops which the French growers ire contented with. Such contrasts show all the more clearly what advantiges the California grower possesses. Ihe essay gives also the French estimates of some varieties we are growing here. Not the least interesting point of the essay is the frank admission that the French use many pumpkins in making their apricot jam. Fortunately in California apricots are so abundant and cheap that apricot products do not have to be debased. The following is M. Jamin’s essay: The apricot, which appears to be a native of Wes...
