Feeding the Worms. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Feeding the Worms. In our lost article on this subject, we had watohed and fed the little worms, from the day we lifted them off tho cards of eggs, until they had grown to more than double their size when first hatched. We had noticed their gradual change of color from an almost jet black to v grayish color, especially about the head. We had sees that as they approached the time for the flrsl sleep or molting, they hadassumed a yellowish or bilious look, and that many of them had disappeared under the leaves. We had waited from lU to 48hours and hud seen them re-appear on the surface of the leaves, very much brighter and lighter colored, and anxiously moving about over and under each other, and at tlu> slightest movement near them, sticking up their heads and swinging back and forth as if trying to reach something. And when we noticed them more closely, wo observed that all the little fine black hairs that covered their tiny bodies before they went to sleep, hud disappear...

The Classics as Allied to Science. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

The Classics as Allied to Science. [l'rcif Martin Kellogg before the Mechanic Arts c>>lj.i <;k, Mechanics' Institute Hall, H. V. Fourth Scries. Reported cxpreKKly for the Pbem. Lbot. 1. April 22.—Prof. Kellogg, in oommenoing his lecture, referred to the changes which had boon made of late years in the courses of instruction in our American colleges and also in similar institutions elsewhere. Tho scientific element is now being made more prominent, modem languages receive a larger share of attention, while the classics have lost the almost exclusive ground which they once held. The professor would not now enter into the discussion of this matter which lias been so long and is now being agitated. Believing, however, that there was at least danger of going too far and of unjustly neglecting the ancient languages, he would speak of their claims in certain respects, and, entering into the spirit of the hour, would aim to present the Greek and Latin langua...

A Grain of Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

A Grain of Wheat. C. L. ANDERSON, M. D. In a popular journal, such as tho Pacific Rural is, going as an instructor into thousands of families, it seems to me that gross errors should not be overlooked, or passed without correction. That errors will occur in tho best of journals we all know. Most of them are so immaterial that the reader will readily make the necessary amend. But the one to which I wish to call attention to has been repeated so often that I am constrained to think the writer labors under the impression that his statements are in accordance with facts. In tho number for April 15th, is an article on "Water in the Stomach," in which this statement occurs: —" Nothing but organized matter seems to aid in building up the system. Meat, flour, corn, barley, etc., when taken into the stomach in their natural condition, undecomposod by either cooking or any other exposure are immediately digested; but when decomposition commences before they enter the human stomach, that decom...

Clear Creek County, Colorado. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Clear Creek County, Colorado. The Georgetown Committee, appointed to collect statistics with reference to the building of a railroad to their place, have a report, which is given in full in the Colorado Miner of April 13th. We give some of the principal items in brief. The amount of freight received and shipped in the county, in 1870, was 9,330,---854 tt)s., for which the freight charges were about $108,000. This represents only the freight handled by merchants, livery stable keepers and mining companies. The amount of smelting ore which would be produced on the completion of the proposed railroad is estimated at 200 tons daily. The amount of wood now consumed exceeds 200 cords per day, unsawn pine costing over $5 per cord. It is estimated that the daily consumption of coal, were the road completed, would amount to about 100 tons. The passenger travel per day is set down as 15, which number is probably a typographical mistake. Any such estimates as the above, being difficult to make...

Our Weekly Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Our Weekly Crop. Apparently the Rural has succumbed to the popular frenzy, for the conductors have concluded to provide Roller Skates for our friends, on which to glide gracefully umoug the varied productions of the week. These skates appear to have the properties of tho seven-leagued boots. They take us in a moment up to Sacramento to enquire about the State Fair. They •whirl us up to Yolo county to Inspect the "Wood-1 land Irrigating Ditch. They circle slowly around the Library of Mechanical and Scientific Progress, which has rendered possible their existence. They fly off at a tangent to Marin county on a pleasure trip. They take a run Down the Const to see whut is there; then up to the mountains, to review the Dormer Tragedy; and finally they dally lovingly among their brethren, the Recent Inventions. Getting an agricultural "crninp," they curve off to the Poultry Yard with a lively crow; becoming literary, they notice the New Publications; growing critical, they go through the ...

The Crop Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

The Crop Prospects. Notwithstanding the encouraging words put forth by most of our interior exohanges, tho fact is becoming more and more apparent, that under the most favorable circumstances that can now be expected the grain and hay crops must be light. The late rains were productive of much good; but their beneficial effects are nearly exhausted, already, and thero is but a small store of moisture in tho ground, held over from the early rains, upon which the crops can draw when the surface moisture fails. In the moro favorable portions of the State good crops arc insured; in many others, fair crops; but there are unmistakable signs that throughout a large area we can hardly expect much moro grain than will suffice for homo consumptions and next season's seeding. It may be that with the increased price, brought about by the scarcity in Europe, wo may bring up the aggregate value of exports to such a figure that the State in general will not seriously feel the deficit; but that the...

California Savings Banks vs. California Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

California Savings Banks vs. California Improvements. Within the last four or five years past there have been established in nearly all the cities and interior towns of this State, banks for the deposit, safe keeping and loan of money,---generally called Savings Banks. Tho extent to which these institutions have succeeded in accumulating together the money of tho country, both in largel and small sums, is truly astonishing. Notwithstanding they have also been very successful in loaning out large and truly astonishing amounts of the money bo accumulated, there aro yet millions of money constantly lying idle in their vaults. The periodical report! of these institutions show them generally in a most flourishing condition, and their business constantly on the increase. They aro all at this time using the greatest exertions to keep up the monthly dividends to their patrons of ono per cent, per month. Indeed there seems to be a sort of business rivalry going on between them, and the point...

Dr. Mendenhall's Rain Theory. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Dr. Mendenhall's Rain Theory. Ens. Puess:—l would like to ask some of your meteorological contributors why it is that the iforth wind, which occasionally sweeps across over the State with such damaging effect, is dry and hot, coining as it does from anywhere but a hot and dry country. If not troubling you too much I would also liko. to mako a remark in regard to an article in your issuso of March 11th, about a Dr. Mendenhall acting upon a theory in his farming that as the rains art! in Central America and Mexico, so they will be in California. A similar statement was published by the Alto in the fall of lH(i'.) and a wot season predicated. I saw the same theory adverted to in the Bulletin, in the fall of INTO, and supposing it to be reliable, a very wot season was again announced. In both years the theory lias most completely failed. May we not have got tho wrong end of the story— got tho bull by tin? tail instead of tho horns. Wo are tan .{lit that all our moisture rises under the ...

Editorial Notes Eastward.—1. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Editorial Notes Eastward.—1. Oakland to Sacramento. Peak Press:As you know, it is with strong effort that I havo thrown myself out of the routino of office duties for a few weeks, to visit a dear mother who longs to see again her "boy" before her declining steps are oven more feeble. While I cannot promise to write you formally when absent, I will yet send you a fow items for tho forbearing reader. From Oakland to Sacramento, I cannot say how lino the grain looks by tho way, but the wild flowors are out in their gorgeous hues, acres and acres of bright colors clothing our Mother Earth with richer loveliness than is her lot in any other clime or quarter of tho globo. They evidently do not take cognizance of a dry season. The scene reminds that while the middle of May is early enough for the tourist to visit Yosemito, yet all comers for sight-seeing would do well to spend a few weeks previous in rambling over one or more of our lovely valleys while carpeted with these annual tlowrets....

All Farmers Should be Sheep Growers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

All Farmers Should be Sheep Growers. There aro many reasons why almost every farmer Avould find it profitable to keep a small flock of sheep on a farm, even in California, especially where grain is the principal crop. By raising his own mutton a largo saving will be made in his butcher's bills; while the sale of the wool will bring ready money just before harvest, when the grain farmer needs it most, and when, ordinarily, ho finds it tho most difficult to obtain. Good mutton, well fatted and neatly butchered, as elsewhere described in today's issue, is tho most wholesome, nutritious and most palatable meat which wo can eat, and tho cheapest. Its more general substitution for pork, on the farm and elsewhere, would be a long stride in the hygienic and financial elevation of this or any other State. A moro general introduction of sheep-raising will moreover be found an important stop towards tho system of mixed farming, which all acknowledge to bo so essential to genuine and permanent ...

What Kind of Sheep to Keep. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

What Kind of Sheep to Keep. The choice of the kind of sheep which should bo kept depends so much upon circumstances, that it would require a volume to anything like fully discriminate. We shall take the opportunity from time to time to give important information in this direction, and to present the characteristics and economies connected with the different breods of sheep; but as in the present instance wo started out with the idea of a general introduction of sheep upon the farm, for mutton, as a prominent object, we have introduced here a fine portrait of what wo consider one of the very best mutton producing sheep—the South Ihirn. The South Downs of the Present Day Are as marked an improvement upon the original breed, as that exhibited by the Leicesters or any other breed. Is is now about 00 years since systematic efforts were first commenced in England to improve the character of these sheep, and so successful have these efforts been, that they are now regarded there as the bes...

RAINFALL IN SAN JOAQUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

RAINFALL IN SAN JOAQUIN. Editors PItF.KH:-In your issue of April Bth you inserted a table of rains in thislocality from October, 18KH, to the first of this month. We have been favored with rain twice since that communication was sent you. From April 4th to the 7th we received 0.33 of an inch. Yesterday (April litn) we received I.SI inches, making, in all, for April, so far, 1.H4 inches In this last rain we had .iu*ttwice as much as in the whole six months previous. Indeed, it is the largest amount of rain that has fallen in this locality within 24 hours, since February. 1860. Yesterday's storm was a most extraordinary one for this part of California. An inch and a (|uarter of rain fell in four hours—from Id A. M to 2 P.M. This was accompanied by loud peals of thunder, such as we have had but once before in the last three years. At noon hail commenced falling in great quantities, and soon the ground was as white as if covered by snow, In one place where it rolled from the roof of a s...

Grandmother Dale's Stories. NELL VAN The Rainy Day. [Written /or the PUEM.] "We had been at grandmother's cottage about a week, when one day uncle Fred said we were to have a picnic on the Fourth of July, and we must all help Christie make the cake and sandwiches, so that grandmother should not bo taxed. Of course both Alice and I agreed to do every thing we could, and the boys promised to pick plenty of strawberries and cherries to carry along. Oh, the merry days of childhood, when every pleasure is so keenly enjoyed. " -How briskly we went about gathering together the materials for mixing cake, stoning raisins and beating eggs. Then bringing out the pewter mugs and bright tin plates to have in readiness for our woodland feast. Great were the preparations for the celebration of this glorious anniversary of our country's freedom, and we were to be joined by several of the neighbor's families, while our place of destination was the grove about six miles distant. It had been arranged ...
