Sheep Raising in California. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Sheep Raising in California. In raising sheep, tho first consideration is always to secure good stock, whatever tho breed may be. The three most prominent breeds to which attention is now being given are the Merinos, theCotswolds, and tho South Downs. In our issue, two weeks since, wo remarked at considerable length npon the latter, giving the circumstances under which it would be found most profitable, together with a portrait representative of tho breed. To-day we propose to enquire into tho advantages of tho Cotswold, and in furtherance of this purpose, Mr. H. F. Buckley, of Buckley & Brothers, Hopeton, Merced county, have placed in our hands the accompanying engraving, which is an accurato portrait of the celebrated Cotswold ram "Golden Fleece," which was purchased by tho Buckley Bro's, from J. D. Wing, of Maple Shade, Dutchess county, Now York, who imported him, with others, direct from England, where he was raised by Wm, Lane, Esq., of Broadfield Farm, a gentleman ...

Rural Homes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Rural Homes. The growth, development and steady progress of rural taste among the people of this coast is surely indicated by the increasing demand manifested for informa- tion upon rural subjects. The rapidly increasing number of our suburban homes, where are found cheerful rural firesides and happy domestic family circles, betokens a most healthy appreciation of the homely, the useful and the beautiful. It is gratifying and suggestive to see Nature thus sought for and cherised in her most pleasing forms. How different, how much more lovely and really attractive is the unpretentious cottage, tastefully decorated with vines and surrounded by its neatly trimmed grass plots, winding walks, and beds of bright and fragrant flowers, than the stiff and stately "mansion" in the city street, with its brown stone front or severely correct architectural adornments! True, there may be as much family comfort and refinement in the one as in the other; but there is a certain indefinable air of ta...

Exhibit at the Fairs. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Exhibit at the Fairs. Very few persons appreciate the benefits derived from exhibitions at our industrial fairs. If you are a manufacturer you can advertise the goods manufactured in no other way so advantageously and economically as by exhibiting them at our State and County and Mechanical Fairs. At these exhibitions people see samples of your workmanship, and judge for themselves of its quality. They learn your place of business, become acquainted with you or your assistant in attendance, and when they want anything in your line they remember you as a reality—as a person who can supply their wants, and the result is, you get their order and custom. Having been long connected with the State Agricultural Society and its fairs, at Sacramento, and with the Mechanic's Institute, and its fairs in this city, we speak whereof we know. Persons often speak to us of the benefits they have experienced by exhibiting their products at this or that fair, and we could name many cases, in point. W...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Effect of the Coal Trouble. —The following is from the argument of President Gowen of the Reading Railroad Co. before the Judiciary Committee of the Pennsylvania Legislature:—" The effect on the coal trade has resulted in a diversion of at least 2,000,000 tons of coal per annum from the anthracite trade, which it will never recover. Upon the iron trade the effect has been such as to seriously threaten the removal of the whole iron producing interest from Eastern Pennsylvania to the South and West. No better protection can be offered the English iron trade than the action of the Workingmen's Benevolent Association. In the last sixty days more orders have left the country for Scotch Pig Iron than were sent in all last your. The effect! upon the men themselves are even more disastrous." The Iron Age of April 27th has the following:— " The effects of the strike in tho anthracite coal regions are becoming quite serious. A dispatch from Scranton says: Thirty four blas...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Thh Eocene Beds of Utah.—T. A. Conrad contributes a noto upon this subject to Sillimans Journal for May. Wo (luoto:— "I am indebted to Prof. Cope for an opportunity to examine some Eocene fossil shells, collected at Aspen station, and at Quaking Asp Hidge, east of Bear river, Utah, at an elevation of 7,100 feet. These fossils were taken from the rock in which they were imbedded, by LuolUi C. Ricksecker, engineer on the Pacine lvailroad. * * The fossils are especially interesting in consequenco of the light they cast on the condition of the globo m tho earliest Eoceno period. * * Tho hydrography of this early Tertiary era may bo imagined from tho forogoing statement to have been a river system analogous to that of Brazil at the present time. The presence of vast numbers of estuary shells forbids us to suppose that tho group inhabited lakes rathor than rivers which roso in not greatly elovated hills, for mountains, except as isolated peaks, had hardly been dovelop...

Irrigation in Northern Italy. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Irrigation in Northern Italy. Eds. Press:—ln connection with the subject of irrigation, which is now attracting so much attention throughout our State, allow me to send for insertion in your columns an extract from an eminent writer of Great Britain. The result of the extensive system of irrigation in Northern Italy, as described by him, is full of encouragement to those who are ready to organize companies for this purpose in the valleys of California. By a reference to this extract, and an examination of the map of Lombardy, it will be seen that the only advantage which tho valley of the river Po has over Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys, as regards means for irrigation, is tho number of lakes along the baso of tho Alps. These form hugo reservoirs which furnish a more abundant supply of water than we can obtain from our streams alone. But it is to be hoped that what water wo have, can be employed to such advantage, as to produce results like those described in the following extra...

The Cinchona Tree in California. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

The Cinchona Tree in California. The tree from which the Peruvian bark of commerce is obtained, is known by the above name. It is a native of South America, and is found in greatest abundance in Peru—whence its name. From this bark is manufactured quinine, and many other preparations so extensively used in the cure and prevention of diseases peculiar to tropical and miasmatic countries. It is, indeed, in some form the great reliance of the medical profession in the treatment of most all diseases of a malarial origin. There is generally but a faint idea of the great quantity of this bark, and the preparations made from it, used in the world. There were imported into tho United States alone within a period of six yearsending in 1865, according to the rejjorton commorce and navigation, of bark, 1,631,876 pounds, of the value of $1,874,112: of all the salts of quinine, 7,525 pounds, of tho value of $287,138; total value, $2,161,---250. In view of tho great medical value of tho bark, and...

Our Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Our Water Supply. We have been having another deluge of water discussions, of which we enjoyed so copious a supply a year ago. The discussion has, to some considerable extent, been muddied through personal interests and through the prevalence of San Francisco fogs and sand, all of which have apparently collected in the eyes and ears of many of our worthy citizens to such an extent that it has been hard for them to get a clear, impartial view of the question. ■ Three propositions are now placed before the public. Two of these are for furnishing water by private parties, the third for a public or a private enterprise, as the city may elect. They are: the Peninsula supply, represented mainly by the Spring Valley Water company; the Lake Tahoe supply, represented by Col. Yon Schmidt and associates; and the Blue Lakes Project, represented by W. V. Clarke. The latter has not been pushed so much as the others, although we have good reason to think that we shall hear more of it before many y...

Improving our Poultry Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Improving our Poultry Stock. It is possible that there may be something of an undue speculation in the present furor in regard to blooded fowls; but that it will result in a most healthy and important reform in our poultry stock there can be no doubt, whatever. The time has fully arrived when the matter of poultry raising should receive a more extended and careful consideration than it has heretofore. Let any one tako a walk through the markets of this city or those of any other city in the Union, and note the class of chickens and eggs for sale there, as compared with the chickens and eggs produced and shown by our fancy poultry raisers, and he can no longer entertain any question as to the need of the reform wo speak of. Farmers have been too much accustomed to consider poultry raising as a small business —too small for any particular attention —and their chickens have thus been suffered to run wild and take care of themselves. The consequence has been a very general degeneration ...

Irrigation a Necessity. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

Irrigation a Necessity. Tho .present dry season, following so closely upon tho heels of that of last year, should turn tho attention of our people to the most careful search for whatever means may bo attainable for averting the terrible and blighting contingencies which aro so liable to interfere with tho profits of those farmers who are located in the more arid and least watered portions of our State. We have elsewhere given a few hints at the lessons which should be learned from our present disaster. Deep plowing, thorough tillage and summer fallowing, judiciously employed, may always be resorted to, as a means of increasing the yield of crops in all seasons, and under almost all circumstances; but they will not always serve the purpose of securing a crop. Irrigation must be resorted to, wherever it is practicable. Tho past three years have fully demonstrated its necessity. Several large enterprises have already been carried out, and those within the reach of theso benefits, are n...

How to Save Mustard Seed. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 13 May 1871

How to Save Mustard Seed. In view of tho fact that mustard seed, if properly gathered and cleaned, is a merchantable article, and can be sold in any quantity for cash, the following information, from the Los Angeles Express, will probably be of interest wherever this plant grows in abundance, and can be had for tho gathering: It should bo cut and gathered in tho morning, while still wet with dew, so that the seed will not scatter out while handling, and the threshing should be done on a linen cloth—about thirty feet square in the proper size—to keep it from becoming mixed with the soil or dirt of any description whatever. It must be thoroughly clean to bo marketable, and if threshed upon the ground or anything except cloth, it will become more or less mixed with dirt. The operation is very simple, and, many persons who are out of employment could make good wages, by engaging in this business, which requires so small a capital for a beginning as to be within the reach of the poorest....
