Land Decision. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Land Decision. About two weeks since, says tho Union, the United States Surveyor-General requested the Register of the United States Land Office, at Sacramento, to suspend from en--liv and sale all lands situated upon the east hall of township 7 north, range 10 cant, which includes Amador City, also tho Keystone, Amador and other mining claims of much value, all having claims pending in tho Sacramento Land Office. Tho Register was of opinion that the proceeding could not be suspended, as in cases where lands were claimed as swamped lands, by order of the Surveyor-General, and proceeded to take proofs, notwithstanding tho request of suspension,but awaited instructions before making sales. It will bo seen by the following letters just received by the Register, thai the land intended to bo affected by tho suspension is not to bo deemed suspended, but is to be considered as though it had been returned upon tho township plat as mineral land, until otherwise ordered. Wherefore the Land Of...

A Lively Medical Application. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

A Lively Medical Application. The Medical and Surgical Reporter publishes the particulars of a lively medical application, which we condense as follows: A physician in Ithaca, N. V., was called to see a colored woman, who was afflicted with severe intestinal pains. After administering the usual cathartics, and trying ordinary injections without any result, he came to the conclusion that there was some unusual obstruction in the small intestines which no ordinary treatment would remove. This opinion was strengthened when severe vomiting sot in, with regard to which her attendant nurse remarked, "Dat what de nigger vomited smelt juss like what orter gone de odder wa'.' Only two remedies were then suggested to his mmd —opening the abdomen and removing the obstruction, or the novel idea of an injection of Seidlitz powders. Ho finally resolved upon the latter as a possible means of avoiding the necessity of the former, and gave particular directions to have the two papers dissolved and u...

How to Prevent Spring Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

How to Prevent Spring Sickness. There are a great many people who are subject to a "bilious attack" every spring, and who expect it as a matter of course. Now there is no more need for people being thus sick in the siting, than at any other time of the year, if they only know how to live. This periodical sickness can be prevented simply by regulating the diet.. Not that all persons who have been subject to such attacks year after year, for a long time, can overcome the difficulty at once. We are all such creatures of habit, that when any thing becomes established in this way, there is a strong tendency to its return at the regular time, even after the producing cause has ceased to operate; consequently iv bad cases it sometimes takes several years to overcome it entirely. Under a proper regimen the attacks will grow less severe every year, until they entirely disappear. During cold weather, people eat larger quantities than usually of carbonaceous food, such as fat meats, sugar, but...

Pleasant Farm Homes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Pleasant Farm Homes. Nothing so much attaches families to their homes as good and conveniently constructed dwellings with pleasant surroundings. Of course we suppose that the social relations of the family are all that is desired. In the early settlement of California, but little thought was given to permanence; and of course as little was thought of erecting pleasant or convenient dwellings. Any miserable shanty that could be nailed together, and which would form a shelter from the rain, wind and sun was considered sufficient for a California house. Of course no attachment could be formed for such a home by either old or young. Hence families were frequently changing from one part of the country to another, and broken up by the scattering of children upon the slightest pretext or caprice. Such a state of things is entirely inconsistent with the prosperity of any people. Farms managed under such circumstances can never be improved, but must be constantly deteriorating. The habit of ...

Thorough Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Thorough Farming. W. N. Furlong, Esq., between this place and Old Gilroy, is one of the most practical farmers in this part of Santa Clara Valley, as may be readily noticed by the most casual observer from his beautiful and well arranged residence, and the high state of cultivation of his farm. Mr. Furlong cultivates only thirty-one acres, and it is safe to say that he realizes more from his thirty-one acres than many of our farmers do from that many hundred. Of these thirty-one acres, eleven are set out to an orchard numbering some two thousand trees of every variety of the choicest quality of apple, peach, plum, pear, prune, nectarine, black walnut, almond, orange, fig, chestnut, persimmon, mulberry, grape, currant and goosberry. He has also a large variety of shade and ornamental trees. We were shown on his place a weeping willow four years old that measured 8 inches in diameter and 25 feet in hight. The fruit and other trees on his place are equally thrifty and vigorous. Mr. Fur...

Covering Grass Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Covering Grass Seeds. A correspondent of the Scottish Farmer gives the results of some experiments by himself and a neighbour, showing that, in ordinary field culture, the prevailing opinion among farmers that tho nearer the surface clover and grass seeds can be sown and covered, the better chance they have of succeeding, is contrary to actual experience. His neighbor sowed a ridge of his clover seed along with the grain in the plow furrow, and found the clover to bo much better on this ridge than on any part of the rest of the field sown in the ordinary way after the grain had been sown, and covered with light seed harrows. Ho sowed several plots of 100 seeds each in his garden, covering them at various depths, and found the proportion to grow to be as follows with rye grass:— Plot 1. Sown on surface 6 out of 100 grew, " 2. Coy ;red 1 inch 50 " " " a. " 2 " 69 " « i. " 3 " 47 " " •' 5. » 4 " 1 " „ 6 <• 5 <• 0 " " With Red Clover it resulted in Plot 1. Sown on ...

The Crop Prospect. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

The Crop Prospect. The rain of Sunday last was again most timely, and has been of much benefit to the grain and grass; it will give increase length and weight to the wheat and barley already heading out, and help along to a partial crop, much that was entirely despaired of. It was followed by warm and moist weather instead of a dry and scorching wind, which has added still more to its beneficial influence, If no more rain, whatever, falls, we are now assured of at least a fair crop throughout the greater portion of the State. But as two or three light showers may reasonably be looked for, there is good reason, considering the increased breadth of land sown, to expect a fair aggregate of yield. The tone of the interior press is decidedly cheerful. Aside from the dryer portions of the San Joaquin valley, and a few small tracts here and there, in other portions of the State, we do not anticipate any decided failures to mature a crop. An aggregate yield of 3,600,000 sacks of wheat for e...

A Pleasant Reception. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

A Pleasant Reception. The Mechanics' Institute, which, under the lead of its energetic President, Mr. A. S. Ilallidie. is ever alive to assist iv the Important events of the day, gave a very pleasant reception on Wednesday evening. to Mr. W. H. Webb, the distinguished mechanic, the chief of American ship-builders. This gentleman coming to our shores, as Mr. Hallidie remarked, not as a sight-seer or critic, but to establish and consummate a great enterprise, an enterprise which binds nation to nation, and by its intercommunication develops industrial resources, latent wealth, and a high civilization, it was proper that the Mechanics' Institute of the Pacific coast should greet him, a fellow citizen, a fellow mechanic, with a warm, a hearty welcome. Mr. lliillidie, in brief but well chosen terms, weloomed Mr. Webb in the name of the Institute. He alluded to the guest's high position, and to the nobility of the mechanic's calling. Mr. "Webb replied in a very appropriate manner. Ho than...

Progress of the Silk Business. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Progress of the Silk Business. One of the greatest drawbacks heretofore encountei'ed in the raising of silkworms in this State has been the lack of a market for cocoons; but this trouble will no longer be felt, as the silk factory, which will soon go into operation in this city, will buy all that aro offered. They will also buy all the reeled silk that may be produced in the State. It is furthermore the intention of the company to manufacture and send to different parts of the State, at the bare cost of manufacture, reels suitable for taking the silk from the cocoons, and by the aid of which process women and children may bo able to utilize their leisure, after the busy season is over, in reeling the cocoons which they may have produced during the summer; thus adding largely to the value of the product of the mulberry patch. All needed instruction will also be sent with each machine for doing such work properly. We look upon this as one of the most useful and promising enterprises e...

The McCormick Prize Mower. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

The McCormick Prize Mower. Wo have previously spoken of the McCormick harvesting machines, which have made such a revolution in farming operations within the past twenty-three years. About a month ago we gave an illustration of the "Advance" roaper and mower. Today we illustrate another machine of Mr. McCormick's, which is callod the "Prize" mower. This mower is identical with the Advance when stripped of its reaping parts. It is a two-wheeled machine, cuts a four-foot swath, and its cutting power, it is said, cannot bo choked by th worst of matted grass. It is geared high and cuts clean and clear with the horses on a slow walk. The cutting apparatus has been proved by the severest tests. The Prize mower is supplied with all the usual conveniences of lovers, and is the only one which has the tilting lever. By this arrangement the edge of the cutter can be sot at any angle desired, in a moment, and without dismounting from the seat. This is invaluable in preserving the edge of the kn...

Silk Culture in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Silk Culture in New Zealand. The people of New Zealand are stirring to introduce this industry on that island. We noticed a proposition was lately made in their Legislature to appropriate quite a largo sum of money to assist the enterprise. And now we receive letters for information on the subject, and for trees, cuttings and eggs. The difficulty in shipping trees from California, would be in the difference of the seasons. Is is now autumn or fall in Now Zealand, and their spring commences in September. The mulberry seed could be sent them, gathered from our trees this summer, and planted there in September or October — their spring. Our eggs made in June and July, could be sent there immediately, and would hatch in September or October, when the trees are putting on their spring foliage. The misfortunes of Europe in silk culture, and now particularly the French troubles are leading other portions of the world to try to supply this indispensable commercial fiber. * A Sod Cutter. —Mr...

Two Free Universities [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Two Free Universities Whatever may be thought or said of the character of the late Horace Hawes, so much must be placed to the credit of his intentions, —that he was the first Calif ornian who has ever given a large sum of money, or its equivalent, to the public. With his death commences a new era for our coast —the era of public bequests. The 2>roperty which Mr. Hawes donatod, although it has yielded but a small income, can be made by proper management, we are told by one of the trustees, to return a very large rovenuo. There are some rumors, however, that the will is to be contested. As to whether the extra outside amount will be raised, we are exceedingly doubtful. But there is a number of persons sanguine that before long California will be able to boast of having two free universities. The boast certainly sounds well. We have no objection to it. But the important question occurs as to whether it will be anything more than a sound. "We have already one free university...

GROWING OLD GRACEFULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

GROWING OLD GRACEFULLY. NELL VAN [Written for the Prkss.] "What is my Agatha brooding over now?" said my husband as he entered one night late from the lodge, throwing himself into his arm chair in the corner. "Why are you not in bed, my child, instead of sitting up for me ?" "John," said I, looking up into his good natured, jovial face, with my earnest thought almost choking my utterance, "I have been inside of myself, taking a critical survey, and contrasting my peculiarities of disposition with those I most admire in others. And also observing whether or not I tind any improvement in my natural defects of character since my girlhood." "There you are again, little woman, always so intense, as you delicate morsels of humanity generally are. Why don't you keep on the outside of yourself, and give that bump of eonseieneiousness a long rest? See here, do you want to know howyon look?" And picking me up in his arms he carried me to the mirror and bade me mark those glowing orbs, which w...

Lift a Little. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Lift a Little. Lift a little? lift ft little? Neighbor, lenda helping hand To that heavy-laden brother. Who, for weakness soiree Can stand; What to thee, with thy strong mUBCIe, Seems a light and easy load, Is to him a ponderous burden, Cumbering his pilgrim road. Lift a little! lift a little! Effort gives one added strength; That which staggers him when rising Thou canst hold at arms length. Not his fault that he is feeble, Not thy praise that thou art strong; It is God makes lives to differ, Some from wailing, some from song. Lift a little! lift a little! Many there who need thine aid; Many living by the road-side, 'Neath misfortune's dreary shade. Pass not by like priest or Levitt, Heedless of thy fellow-man; But with heart and arms extended, He the Good Samaritan.

Squirrel Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Squirrel Wisdom. Tn regard to one of the rarest exhibitions of animal instinct, the Oneida Circular lms the following: Some one has deposited in our cabinet of curiosities a half dozen butternut shells in the state they were left picked of their kernel by a squirrel. Attention is called to the economy of the little rodent by pencil marks on the paper umler them, as follows: It will be observed1. That tho opening is on that aide of the nut which gives access to the Hat side of the kernel. •J. That tho opening is nearest to the blunt end of the nut, where the most of the kernel lies. ;{. That the opening is no larger than is absolutely necessary, less than half nn inch square. •t. That all of the kernel is extracted. How does the Squirrel know before trying exactly where and how the kernel lies? There is only one nut in a great hoard which showed a liability of the squirrel to make a mistake. On tliis lie began to gnaw on the wrong side, but he was evidently deceived by the unusual pr...
