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

Plain Talk. Under the abovo head the Santa Clara Agi-icutturLst, gives some sensible advice to its readers from which we select the following:— The farmers who should now bo laboring earnestly to improve and beautify their homes, and making gradual but sure provision against present wants and future need, are still following up the wild hopes of gaining a fortune by a single stroke of good luck. This is plain talk, unfortunately it is true. The old education of "Hush times" and mining excitement still clings to us. But we must throw it oft' if we would succeed. Yes, we must cease to think of being "in luck" as farmers. To speak of the lucky or unlucky miner is quite in keeping with tho circumstances and conditions of tho man, but to refer to the lucky or unlucky farmer is a form of speech that ought not to be tolerated. But in future let us talk of our honest, industrious, frugal and successful husbandman, and try to unlearn as soon as possible the impracticable education of tho pas...

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

Napa County. A correspondent writes from Oatvillo, Napa County, under date of May Bth, as follows: —I notice in your issue of May 6th, under "Agricultural Notes" that the prospect of the crops in the Counties of Colusa, Yolo, Batter, Solano, Contra Costa, San Joaquin and Napa is represented to bo very discouraging. This is incorrect in regard to the last one on the list. Napa should have been classed with the Counties of Alameda, Santa Clara and San Mateo, and it is certainly doing her groat injustice by publishing the statement that the condition of her crops is no more promising than that of the Counties of Solano, Yolo or San Joaquin. If the weather henceforward bo favorable, Napa will have three-fourths of a crop—with a good rain at present, they would be up to the average; but under any circumstances wo shall at least havo half a crop. The fruit crop of all kinds promises to bo largo. Tho grape crop, never yet injured by drouth, promises to bo most abundant. The grapo interest ...
