A Talk With the Boys—Oak Balls. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

A Talk With the Boys—Oak Balls. Boys should study the leaves of trees as well as the leaves of books. I will try to help yon, und will tell yon a story by way of introduction.. A few months ago, a teacher said to a little boy in school, "Victor, let me see, what those things are in your hands?" "Oak balls," said Victor. "An 1 they the seeds of the oak?" "No, sir, but they grow on .the oak and are railed oak balls." ••Do you know what they are good for? ••To make ink," said Victor. •T>ut what else arc they good for? What, makes them grow?" "I do not know, sir." -I will tell you," said the teacher, "and I will show you too, at recess, if you will let me cut open one of the balls;" "yon may have one of them, said Victor." After a while recess came, and Victor wished to know all about the oak balls. Be kept the prettiest one to look at, and play with, and gave the other to the teacher to be cut open. As the teacher took it he said, "this is the home of a little fly; you see t...

How to Have Good Mutton. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

How to Have Good Mutton. The following facts, though pertaining more particularly to the butcher's stall, are nevertheless so important to bo known in the kitchen, that wo have preferred to place them in this department. The sheep is a delicate feeder, and makes one of the most delicious and digestible of all the butcher's meats. Like most animals, it improves in flavor by age, and attains its perfection, in most breeds, at the age of three' years, when it makes red mutton so called, because the gravy, though well done, is red and of high flavor. In feeding sheep for (he luxurious table, there should bo but few together, which allows them greater variety of food and more repose, in large flocks the strong sheep monopolize the best herbs and grasses, and the weaker ones are poor and mean meat; besides, there are always restless sheep where many feed together, and the others of the flock are ill at ease whilst any are on foot. Sheep well-grazed are better than the stall-fed, and have ...

Cooking and Eating. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Cooking and Eating. We find the very best types of piety and Christian generosity where the; wants of tlic body are well supplied. For this cause (Joil led his ancient people into the land "flowing with milk and honey." "Milk and honey " were means of grace. Where the soil is fat, the harvest abundant, and the people strong, love to God and man flourish, money is freely given to send the gospel to the lost; people delight to give liberally, they devise liberal things, and enjoy it. Material blessings help the spiritual growth. They may bo abused, so may any blessings; yet they tend to make Christians more cliristian-like. As eating is so useful and Christian, the work of preparing food nicely, temptingly, is exalted. A good cook is equal to a good teacher. Skill in preparing food equals skill in science, or literature, or art, and is usually more useful. Many a business man, many a preacher, many a scholar, has failed from lack of health; and poor cooking spoiled the health. Cooking...

A Fews Hints to Housekeepers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

A Fews Hints to Housekeepers. I have used all the following appliances and can commend them to others: If the covers of sofas and chairs are dirty they may be cleansed without being removed, by first washing them over with a flannel, then before they are dry, sponge them over with a strong solution of salt and water, in which a small quantity of gall has been mixed. The windows of the room should be opened so as to secure a perfect drying, and the colors and the freshness of the articles will in this way bo restored. Floor cloths may be cleaned with a mixture of magnesia, only milk warm, followed by warm water, in the same manner that carpets are cleansed. They should be rubbed with dry flannel until nearly dried, then wet over with a sponge dipped in milk, and immediately dried and rubbed with a flannel till the polish is restored. This is a process much to be preferred to that of rubbing the cloth with wax, which leaves it sticky and liable to retain dust for a long time. Very hot...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Mechanical Hints. Lapland Glue.—The bows of the Laplanders are composed of two 2>ieces of wood glued together, one of them of birch, which is flexible, and the other of the fir of the marshes, which is stiff', in order that the bow, when bent, may not break; and when unbent, it may not bend. When these two pieces are bent, all the points of contact endeavor to disunite themselves; and to prevent this, the Laplanders employ the following cement: They take the skins of the largest perches (it is very probable that eel skins Avould answer the self same purpose) and having dried them, moisten them in cold water until they are so soft that they may be freed from the scales, which they throw away. They then put four or five of these skins in a reindeer's bladder, or they wrap it in such a manner that water cannot touch them, thus covered, in a pot of boiling water, with a stone above them to keep them at the bottom of the pot. When they have boiled about an hour, they take them...

LIFE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

LIFE THOUGHTS. The less a man thinks about his virtues, the better avc like him. Prefer diligence before idleness, unless you esteem rust above brightness. Buy the truth and sell it not; also wisdom and instruction and understanding. Faith which works by fear only leads to a selfish, dishonest repentance, if to any. No person ever got stung by hornets who kept away from where they were. It is so with bad habits. Praises are valuable only when they fall from lii>a that have courage to condemn. Live to be useful. Live to give light. Live to accomplish the end for which you were made, quietly and steadily shine on, trying to do good. Getting in debt is like a mouse getting into a trap—very easy going, but extremely difficult getting out. We are prone to judge others narrowly by their particular acts. We like ourselves to be judged generously, by our spirit. There is no sin we can be tempted to commit, but we shall find a greater satisfaction in resisting than in committing. ...

Life too Short, Yet Wasted. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

Life too Short, Yet Wasted. Pliny makes a striking computation in regard to the shortness of life. We never recall it without being powerfully impressed by its truth. "Consider," he says, "the time spent in sleep, and you will find that a man actually lives only half his space. The other h;ilf passes in a state resembling death. You do not take into account the years of infancy, which are destitute of reason, nor the many diseases and the many cares of old age, those penalties of longevity. The senses grow dull, the limbs are racked, the sight, the hearing, the power of walking, the teeth also, die before us; and yet all this time is reckoned in the period of a life." But short as life is at the best, those who complain of its brevity let it slide by them without wishing to seize and make the most of its goldod moments. How much time do we waste in indecision, in vain regrets, delusive hopes, and ungrounded fears! What a vast portion of our previous existence is wasted in mere waiti...

The New Mint. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 29 April 1871

The New Mint. There is, as most of our roadors are aware, a new building now in course of erection in this city, which is to be used in place of the present inadequate mint. For this building a good location has been selected, a large sum of money appropriated, and an imposing structure promised, which shall be an ornament to the city. We have spoken of tho progress made from timo to time, and have indulged in the hope that the edifice would be a monument of architectural skill and excellent workmanship. For several months we have watched the course of events, and our hopes, we are sorry to say, havo been changed into fears. Instead of an ornament, the edifice bids fair to be a disgrace. It is being constructed of an imported stone, a cretaceous sandstone from Victoria. This rock contains a little lignite in places and considerable iron. On exposure to the atmosphere, the iron is oxidized, and before tho building had risen many feet above the foundation, the stone was already discol...

WALTHAM WATCHES. ™Jr,.x?,VciHnß nIIPW <ho P»Wic patronage of WATCHES of domestic production, the AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY respectfully represent : That no fact 111 the history of manufactures is more completely demonstrated than that the hest system of making Wutehes is the one first established by them at Waltham. That system always had the warrant of reason and common sense, mid now the test of time in the trial of the Watches themselves cannot be denied to have been ample and satisfactory. It is admitted »v every hand—the evidence of daily observation and common reputethat the Watches not only keep correct time, but that as machines they ENDURE. It should seem that nothing more is needed, but that their sizes, shapes and appearance should suit the tastes of the people. As to all these conditions the American Wutch Co. are now fully prepared to answer the exactions of the market. They confidently assert there is no longer any need for such reasons to import watches of any...
