Water in the Stomach. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Water in the Stomach. The first effort of nature when water has been received into the stomach, is to remove or take up from it all the elements of nutrition which it may contain. If it contains sugar or meat or anything else which may go to feed the system, those elements, if the stomach is in a healthy condition, are first abstracted and digested, and whatever of inorganic matters, it may contain, not needed in the system, are cast off by the excrctories, or at least the effort is made to so dispose of them by those organs. Sometimes minerals or other poisonous substances are taken into the stomach in such a form that the assimilative organs take hold of them and distribute them throughout the system, before the excretories can act. Poison is thus diffused in the system, more or less rapid in its action, according to its nature and the quantity present. We often drink infinitessimal quantities of poison—generally disorganized vegetable or animal matter—in the water which we imbibe...

In-Growing Toe Nails. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

In-Growing Toe Nails. Wo described a mode of treating this painful trouble, a few weeks since, by filing the nail down, on the principle that one cause of the disease was an unnatural thickening of the nail. We now append the following upon the same subject from the Herald of Health:— The most painful of the diseases of the nails is caused by the improper manner of cutting the nail (generally of the great toe), and then wearing a narrow, badlymade shoe. The nail beginning to grow too long, and rather wide at the corner, is often trimmed around the corner, which gives temporary relief. But it then begins to grow wider in the side where it was cut off, and as the shoe presses the flesh against the corner, the nail cuts more into the raw flesh, which becomes excessively tender and irritable. If this state continues long, thej,toe becomes more and more painful and ulcerated, and fungus (proud flesh), shoots up from the sorest points. Walking increases the suffering, till positive rest b...

An Important Surgical Success. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

An Important Surgical Success. On Thursday last, it was our pleasure to see, "bottled up," in the office of Dr. E. J. Fraser, at No. 108 Stockton street, an immense cancer, which he had a few days previously removed from the breast of a lady, from Alameda county. We were so much interested in the case, that we visited the lady in person, (as she is still in the city under treatment) and from her received the following history:— She is now 52 years old. About a year ago she discovered a small lump in the left breast. As it grew rapidly she employed the best medical skill she could find, to remove it if possible; but it continued to grow till it involved the entire breast, making a dark red tumor, as large as a child's head. It also extended across the breastbone, and was rapidly progressing towards the other breast. The left arm was swollen to twice its ordinary size, was very painful and so nearly useless, that she could only with great difficulty, dress herself without assistance. ...

ARBIVALOFSILKWOItM EodSFKOM JAI'AN. The silkworm eggs, which we mentioned two weeks since as en route to this city from Japan, have arrived. They consist of i:5.">,---000 cards, costing in Japan $67^,000. The eggs were contracted for in Japan by a French house, at five dollars per card. Through the embarrassment of the war in France, the house was compelled to canoe] all orders by telegraph, and could not meet engagements already executed. The Japanese merchants, eleven in number, on whose hands the eggs were left, immediately jmrchased a vessel with which they have arrived at this port in personal oharge of their property. The eggs are reported to be fresh and in prime condition. Gone East. —Mr. A. T. Dewey, the senior member of our firm, has gone East for a short time, to visit the " old folks." Any personal communications to him during the next two or three weeks, should be directed to Westfield, Massachusetts. The late rains are everywhere reported as having given new...

IRRIGATION DITCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

IRRIGATION DITCHES. The Calaveraa and San Jonquiu Water Company, latelj incorporated, propose building a canal, 8 feet deep, i<> feet wide at the top, and 80 feet -wide at the bottom, from the Mokelnmne river, near Camanche, to Bear creek, San Jominin county, thence to the Calaveras river, and thence to Stockton. It is claimed that the canal will irrigate at least XiO.OOO acres of land. Tho Merced Irrigation Canal is being constructed by Wm. (t. Collier & Co., work having been commenced in February.

State Geological Surveys. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

State Geological Surveys. We learn, through the columns of a valned ootemporary, the U. »s'. Mm. «»<l />'• /l>Register, of two facts oonoerning State geological surveys, which aie iUtwtrative of what wo should call practical seme and of profound stupidity. Wo incorporate the matter furnished by the paper alluded to into the following article. One fact, which illustrates the fanatic stupidity, is the action of the Senate of West Virginia with regard to the State geological survey. A bill instituting the survey had passed the House, but failed in the Senate,—not on the grounds of practicability or impracticability, of expense or usefulness; but because of the opposition of several profound theologians and senators who declared that Geology was opposed to Religion. A friend suggests that those men are impious who call irreligious the hand-writing of the Creator impressed on tho pages of Nature. The other more interesting fact is tho publication of the R...

INCREASING THE VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

INCREASING THE VINEYARDS. Wo have no means, as yet, of estimating correctly the number of vines that have been set out this season, but it is undoubtedly much larger than in any previous year. The impulse which tho Avar in Europe has given to this industry, and the improved system of managing the winemaking business in tho State, which has been introduced quite generally of late years, is adding very rapidly to the number and size of our vineyards. The Orleans Hill Vinicultural Association Have a vineyard in the foot-hills of the coast range, in Yolo county, about thirtyfive miles nearly west of Sacramento. The number of vines now in tho vinoyard is about 40,000, mostly of two varieties of grapes- the Kisling and the Orleans. They have just iinished planting out their cutlings this season, which number 40,000 — thus doubling tho number of vines in their vineyard. They aro also preparing a large quantity of land for an additional extension next year. This company have adopted or sele...

The Inventor of the Sewing Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

The Inventor of the Sewing Machine. It is said that wo are producing the astounding number of one thousand sewing machines every working day at an average cost to the purchaser of sixty dollars each. Sixty thousand dollars daily paid for this substitute seems almost incredible. Yet we are told that there are single establishments which employ over live hundred machines; we know that there are millions of families in the United States, most of whom have or intend to have one; and we cannot visit any city of largo size in the civilized world without stumbling across the familiar article. To tho man whose face appears on this page, is due the credit of inventing the machine which annually saves millions of dollars in labor. Prof. Renwiok said on oath, in 1860, that he believed the saving of labor then amounted to ninoteon millions per annum. Elias Howe, Jr., the inventor of this wonderful machine, Avasbornat Spencer, Massachusetts, in the year 1819. As a youth, he was considered a joll...

The Broken Window. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

The Broken Window. NELL VAN [Written (or the Press.] Grandmother Dale sat in her comfortable chair by the fireside, ono cool after* toon towards the close of August, rocking herself leisurely while knitting. "We were all spending our summer vacation at the cottage, which had been the early home of mother, Aunt Eliza, and Uncle Fred. Now, however, grandmother lived alone with her maid —dear kind Christie—and Tom, who attended to the cows and outdoor work. It had been our custom over since our babyhood, to spend some portion of the summer timo with grandmother, at Merridale Cottage,-as it was called. There cousin Alice and I would swing together by the hour under the self same tree, where her mother and mine had passed so many hours in the same enjoyment. Very fond were we of each other, and seldom were we found separate daring those delightful days spent at the cottage. Our homes were widely separated, and my father was neither wealthy nor a prosperous man in consequence of having be...

HOME LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

HOME LIFE. Of all happy households that is the happinesswhere falsehood is never thought of. All peaoe is broken Up when once it appears there is n liar in the house. All com fort is gone when BUspicion has once entered — when there must lie reserve in talk and reservation in belief. Anxious parents, who arc aware of the pains of suspicion, will place general confidence in their children, and receive what they say freely, 111.---less there is a strong reason to distrust the truth of any one. If such an occasion should unhappily arise, they must, keep the suspicion from spreading as Long as possible, and avoid dlSgraoing their poor child while there is a chance of its CUM by their confidential assistance. He should have their pity and assiduous help, as if he were Buffering under some bodily disorer. If he can be cured he will become duly grateful for the treatment. If the endeavor fail, means must of course be taken to prevent his example from doing harm; and then, as I said, the fa...

CHILD ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

CHILD ANGELS. For what are these child-angels Aade, that are sent down to this world to bring love and rapture, and k*> from us in such bitterness and mourning? It' we believe in Almighty Love we must believe that they have a merciful and tender mission to our wayward souls. The love wherewith we love them is something the most utterly pure and unworldly of which human experience is capable, and we must hope that every one who goes from us to the world of light, goes holding an invisible chain of love by which to draw us there. Sometimes I think I would never have had mv little daisy grow older on earth. The little child dies in growing into womanhood, and often the woman is far less lovely than the little child. It seems to me that lovely and loving childhood, with its truthfulness, frank sincerity, its pure, simple love, is so sweet and holy an estate that it would be a beautiful thing in heaven to have a band of heavenly children, guileless, gay and for ever joyous—ten...

HISTORY AND DOWNFALL OF A HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

HISTORY AND DOWNFALL OF A HAT. Tho following contribution to our "Young Folks' Column" is from a little girl 13yean old: The first I remember of my existence, whs being in a show window m a shop on Broadway. I was in the company of a large collection of liats, and was perched on the highest point in the window. Many persons in passing, greatly admired my glossy appearance, and I was soon acknowledged to be the must elegant hat in the the shop, though many of my acquaintances were very handsome. [, being a now arrival, the most of the huts crowded around me to enquire my name, and learn my former history, and were much interested in hearing of my Long journey, and of my descent from a Parisian family of great distinction; some of my brothers having graced the brow of the Emperor. So in honor of such a distinguished arrival among them, they concluded to give a grand party. Invitations wen 1 issued to their friends in the windows on that block, and as we were to have a large company, p...

Artificial Appetites. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Artificial Appetites. The tone of the stomach may bo destroyed by insensible degrees—that is, without the individual experiencing any pain or any considerable uneasiness. Most people think their own experience or appetite the best tost in regard to the fitness of any suitable food for their own use; and yot it is a well established fact, and patent to every medical man, that oftentimes things which appear to set well on the stomach, really produce very important disturbances, if not in the stomach, at least elsewhere in the system. In fact, tho " tone of the stomach" may thus be entirely changed or destroyed. Such a condition of that organ is often caused by an excessive nse of spices and stimulants of various kinds. It is thus that the taste for putrid food, to which we made reference hist week, is acquired. In support of tho jiosition that many of our (antes in civilized life are artificial rather than natural, it is quite common to refer t<> tho same thing i...

Milk and Its Adulteration. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Milk and Its Adulteration. The climate and season of the year have much to do with the amount of milk rendered by each animal; those contingencies also materially affect the nature and composition of the milk. In hot and dry seasons the quantity is less, but the quality is richer. Cold weather favors the production of sugar and cheese in milk, while hot weather inoreases the yield of butter. An animal milked three times a day will yield a larger quantity than one milked twice, and more at two milkings than one in a day. But milk drawn but once a day is richer than that drawn thrice or twice. From those observations it will be seen that the detection of adulterated milk is extremely difficult. The truth can be comparatively reached by ascertaining the minimum density of pure milk, and seeing whether the density of the suspected samples be above or below that. A lactometer —tho instrument employed to determine the density,—costs but a trifle, and any child that can road figures can be...
