DOMESTIC ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

DOMESTIC ECONOMY. Pobk Unclean.—Tho Divine declaration to the Jews:—"Swine is unclean, and of it ye shall not eat, neither you in your day, nor your posterity forever," undoubtedly had reference to tho unfitness of such meat for the human Htomach. Hero/a, from whenco our word Scrofula, is tho Latin for " an old sow;" and henco this terrible disease, even in tho early Roman ago, received its appropriate namo from tho belief that it was in some way connected with the hog. Lugol, in his essay on scrofula and its origin, tells us that it was originally derived from " sleeping with the hog!" It is held by most that tho command to abstain from pork was because it was in some peculiar way, at that time, a Gentile beast, and that the command has never beon binding on Christian or Jew, since God told Peter, when ho objected to eating all manner of moats (including swine), " What I have cleansed, that call thou not unclean." But if wo ignore that understanding altogothor, it is certain that t...

How I Wash my Dishes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

How I Wash my Dishes. Of course, I make sure before breakfast or dinner that there is plenty of water in the boiler, and also in the tea-kettle. After the table is cleared, the table-cloth brushed off and neatly folded away, and the dining-room disposed of, I proceed with my dishes. First, I take my large dish-pan, put into it a piece of soap, and pour over the soap three or four dippersful of hot water from the boilor. Then I add two or three dippersful of cold rain water. Then my dish-cloth. The water should now be so cool as not to turn the hands red when put into it. Take the dish-cloth and rub from the soap the melted surface, and put the remainder away. Wash a dish at a time and pass it to another pan; amilk-pan is generally used. When all are done, or the pan is full, take the tea-kettle and pour over enough hot water to thoroughly rinse and heat them. Now take them from the water, one at a time, and place them bottomside up upn a tray or pan to dry. If they have been properl...

Special attention to bo given to bread-making and pure yeast. Persons in service can receive instruction in ono or all of the various branches of cooking on favorable terms." Persons who have endured dyspepsia, with its varied agonies; long-suffering husbands, who have bought marketable provisions only to have them spoiled; dinersout, who have become martyrs in the pursuit of their noble jirofossion; all who think that the function of eating ought to bo cared for, and that good digestion should wait on appetite, will read the above advertisement with the belief that no lady could undertake, a better business. The Use of Buttermilk. —Persons who have not been in the habit of drinking buttermilk consider it disagreeable, because it is slightly acid. There is not much nourishment in buttermi...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Mechanical Hints. Sanding Paint Whitewash. —The simplest way of sanding ia to dust it over the second coat of paint a sufficient quantity of which will adhere to the fresh paint to form a uniform surface. A thin third coat ia sometimes applied over this to cause more firm adhesion, but it is not necessary on the rough cottage siding. A cheap outside application ia made of the best and purest lime wash, of the consistence of thick whitewash, to which, after the lime is fully dissolved and intermixed, one-twentieth of the lime is added in white vitriol (sulphate of zinc), which will cause the whole to adhere, and become more durable than lime alone. Its brilliant whiteness may be softened to a cream color, by adding a fifteenth of the lime in yellow ochre, or to a fawn color by the same quantity of a mixture of 8 quarts of number 8 of "Indian red, and 1 of lampblack. Hard Cement. —A cement which becomes excessively hard in time may be prepared by mixing 2 parts of silica, 1 part of si...

LIFE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

LIFE THOUGHTS. A good way to expand the chest—carry a big heart in it. The best way to patch up a quarrel is to split the difference. He who suppresses a moment's anger may prevent days of sorrow. Say little, and to the purpose, and you will pass for somebody. Whosoever is afraid of submitting any question,civil or religious,to the test of free discussion, is more in love with his own opinion than with truth. Little local noises deaden the loudest distant ones; so it is that this world shuts out the voice of Almighty God. We often omit the good we might do in consequence of thinking about that which is out of our power to do. Deal gently with those who stray. Draw back by love and persuasion. A kiss ia worth a thousand kicks. A kind word is more valuable than a mine of gold. Moralizing.—lt is one thing to moralize another thing to act. There are men who can utter the most refined and elevated sentiments and at the same time be guilty of crimas of the deepest dye. These are the most ...

Bright Sundays. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Bright Sundays. Let it rain every other day in the week, so that it be pleasant on Sunday. Then let the sky be blue, and the sea. Then let the birds sing, and the little children. Then let the green fields be full of blossoms, and let no ascetic say it is "wicked " to pluck them. Then let the sunlight into your houses, place flowers on your table, have an extra sweet morsel for little mouths, and a pleasant word to everybody. I had almost said do anything but make the day one of gloom. Do anything that a man or woman may do, and look the pure stars in the face, but don't groan; don't set back the chairs against the wall; don't bring out dry theological books, for young folks to read, written by library men, who never so much as peeped into the windows of a warm human heart. Don't foldyour hands over you Sunday suit, and look the ceiling out of countenance. Don't bribe your children to read six chapters in the Bible; don't frown if they smile; don't let your young people long for the...

John B. Gough. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

John B. Gough. This distinguished speaker is now on a visit to California, at tho invitation of the Young Men's Christian Association of this city. He spoke at the Pavilion on Tuesday and Wednesday, at Sacramento last evening, and will speak agftin in San Francisco this evening. Next week, we believe, he takes a trip to Yosemite. We presume ho will visit and speak at other points. His movements are under the direction of the Association in whose interest he is here. Mr. Gough has his family with him and will remain in tho State only about three weeks. Of course he is greeted here as elsewhere with large audiences. Much has l>een said about Mr. Gough's oratory; but no pen can describe it. Ho is a school of his own—he is one of Nature's own orators. Daniel Webster oneo said of him, that he was the greatest natural orator that ever lived. Few men, living or dead, have stood before more people than has Mr. Gough—perhaps no one. Old age is evidently creeping prematurely upon h...

Important Railroad Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Important Railroad Enterprise. It has been whispered, for some time, and now is stated aloud, that the Union Pacific Railroad will connect with tho California Pacific by a line from the neighborhood of Ogden, running to the north of the Central Pacific. Tho requisite capital is said to be secured, and tho matter on the very point of action. Such a road, if built, would result in the extension of tho Central Pacific, and would thus give us two new through linos of railroad. It would thus be a matter of the greatest importance to our coast. The measure is undoubtedly due to the energy of the new management of the California Pacific, a road which the Central Pacific has come near purchasing several times, if former rumors are to believed, but which now proves its most formidable rival.

An Important Irrigation Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

An Important Irrigation Enterprise. We last week mado a brief reference to an extensive system of irrigation to be undertaken in the San Joaquin valley, whereby that large and rich agricultural region is to be placed in comparative independence Of any probable drouth which can ever visit this coast. Today wo aro enabled to give a full record of the various canals proposed, as taken from the certificate of incorporation, which has been filed at the office of the county clerk in this city. The objects of the company in the construction of these canals is not only to provide water for irrigation, when and where needed; but also to afford means for transporting passengers and freight, and to furnish water power for farm and manufacturing purposes. To accomplish this end, feeders will be cut from mountain lakes and streams to supply more directly and fully, water to the small lakes in tho southern part of the valley, which will thus become immense reservoirs for supplying a portion of th...

Consumption and Price of Breadstuffs. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Consumption and Price of Breadstuffs. The Alia in an article on " crops and the price of food" remarks as follows: —"A little reflection will show that pricos even now are higher than the circumstances will warrant. Although breadstuff* are the most imperative want of the people, a very small deficit iv the quantity necessary for food, carrying tho prices to an exorbitant point, yet a very small excess ovor the quantity absolutely required will sink the price to a low point. The question of price, therefore, turns on that of supply for local wants. If there if enough to eat, the price of any surplus depends upon that of England, which is the only customer for the surplus. Now as to actual wants. The population of California and Nevada is, together, according to the Federal Census of [870, 5(.»2,2<>4. The usui.l estimated consumption of wheat per head is live bushels, or three sacks. This will give 1,77b',7(.>2 sacks wanted for food. There will bo req...

The Silkworm in California. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

The Silkworm in California. Thero must bo traceable causes for our difficulties with the silkworm. Tho French annuals make tho best cocoons when they live through tho process; but too often they clio in tho first attempt to spin. The Italians who have been taking our cocooneries on lease, avow thoir main purposo to be for tho supply of eggs to Italy. They profer tho worms montionod, and they tell us why wo aro not sucessful. The eggs should not bo hatched in our cocooneries, but in a separate room having a tire-place. They require a certain temperature which should not vary during tho term of incubation. When hatched, tho worms may go to tho cocoonery to be fed. Before being hatched, an eye-glass, made for tho pttrpOie, should bo passed over tho egg! and such as have tho germ of disease can be detected and destroyed; for tho worm disease is contagious. Our troes aromostly multieaulus, exactly the wrong kind. Their leaf should be fed sparingly. They say that it is deficient, in gummy...

Sewing Machine Improvement. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 20 May 1871

Sewing Machine Improvement. A great objection has been urged against the use of sewing machines from the fact of their use being very detrimental to tho health of tho operators. It is for this reason that such persistent efforts havo been made to devise some ready mode of operating theso machines by tho use of sorao other means than foot-power. The Mill's Adjustable Treadle has recently been devised and, applied to tho Howa Sewing Machine, which is said to remedy the evil complained of by a simple modification in the manner of constructing and adjusting that portion of the machine. This invention has boon brought to tho attention of a large number of physicians, who appear to be unanimous in the opinion that what is claimed for it has boon secured. Tho peculiar feature of tho new treadle consists in making tho foot-board so adjustable, both vertically and longitudinally, that whatever the size of tho foot or shoe, the truo center of motion of the foot may also be brought to coincide...
