A Settled Policy on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

A Settled Policy on the Farm. The whole secret of the successful farmer often lies in his having fixed a plan of operations. Multitude! have no plan but to meet their immediate necessities and make money by the easiest and seemingly shortest methods. If wool brings high prices, they will gradually give up dairying and work into sheep, with the expectation of making their fortunes. If wool and mutton raising for a time does not pay, they soil their Hooks at a great sacriike. If hops are sixty cents a pound, they invest in hop-poles and kilns for drying, and expect sudden wealth. If, when their yards come into full bearing, the prices fall off oue-half or more, they are disgusted, and ready to plow up their yards, concluding the business will not pay. There are men who are always taking up a good thing a little too late to make money by it. The farmer cannot afford this continual change. His business is less speculative than any other, and, after providing for the wants of his family ...

Sand-Caps for Hubs of Vehicles. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Sand-Caps for Hubs of Vehicles. Mr. Goorgo 11. Nevons, of Livcrruore, Alamodu county, Cal., has invented an improved sand-cap for axle-boxes, which promise* to bo of excellent service in excluding all sand and dust, and which is easily applied to any wagon. We hero give a simple illustration and descrij)tion of the device. The invention consists of a ring of motal which is mado conical in form and has its smaller end attached to the axle near the collar. The edge of the larger end projects into a groove, which is formed in the inner end of the hub, and thus effectually protects the collar and axle-box from sand and dust. In the illustration, A is the hub of the wheel, H the axle, which may bo fitted in any of the ordinary ways, C the collar, and X a ring of wood or motal, which may be put on by removing C. In tho caso of axlos already made, or in new work, tho ring may bo slipped on beforo the axle is welded up. Tho metal cap, I), may bo cast with the ring, E, if tho latter is of me...

May 20.—The Professor commenced liia locture by remarking on the universal and imperative demand for the introduction into our public schools of instruction in the modern languages. That this demand was founded on the best of grounds, his provious lecture had tended to show. To-night ho was to remark on the best methods of conveying that instruction. It is only within a few years that this study has boon introduced into the grammar schools of the principal citioa of the Union. Before this, it was treated as a sort of practical superfluity, or rather as an exotic. But in this short time much progress has been made in the methods of teaching. To Manesca belongs the credit of having introduced a new and improved method, which has been followed to a greater or loss extent by all subsequent grammarians. But Manes...

A New Palace Car. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

A New Palace Car. The elegant drawing-room car, just coinploted by the Kimball Carriage and Car Manufacturing Company, has been thrown open to public inspection during the past week, and has been visited by many. As a sample of workmanship, it is certainly of the very highest order, and as a specimen of California manufacture and of Pacific coast material, it is exceedingly interesting. The car body is 60x10% feet. The exterior is very elegant, with highly polished prima vera wood panels and blueand-gold borders. On each side is an oval medallion, bearing the title of the car " Siempre Viva," surmounting the arms of California. At the corners and elsewhere are fine little landscape views of the Yosemite, tho Big Traes, etc. There are six sections or compartments, entirely distinct from one another, placed alternately first on one side and then on the other side of the car, and separated from ono another by the common passage way which consequently has a zigzag path around three side...

Effects of Colors on Health. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Effects of Colors on Health. From several years' observation in rooms of various sizes, used as manufacturing rooms, and occupied by females for twelve hours per day, I found that the workers who occupied those rooms which had large windows with large panes of glass in the four sides of the room, so that the sun's rays penetrated through the room during the whole day,were much more healthy than the workers who occupied rooms lighted through very small panes of glass. I observed another very singular fact, viz: that the workers who occupied one room were very cheerful and healthy, while the occupiers of another similar room, who Avere employed on the same kind of work, were all inclined to melancholy, and complained of pain in the forehead and eyes, and were often ill and unable to work. Upon examining the rooms in question, I found they were both equally well ventilated and lighted. I could not discover anything in the draining of the premises that could effect the one room any more...

Eating Without Appetite. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Eating Without Appetite. It is wrong to eat without appetite, for it shows there is no gastric juice in the stomach, and that nature does not need food, and there not being any fluid to receive and act uponit.it would remain there to putrefy—the very thought of" which should be sufficient to deter any man from eating without an appetite, for the remainder of his life. If a tonic is taken to whet the appetite, it is a mistaken course; for its only result is to cause one to eat more, when already an amonnt has been eaten beyond what the gastric juice supplied has been able to prepare. The object to be obtained is a larger supply of gastric juice, not of a larger supply of food; and whatever fails to accomplish that essential object fails to have any efficiency toward the cure of dyspeptic disease; and as the formation of gastric juice is directly proportioned to the wear and waste of the system/which it is to be the means of supplying, and this wear and waste can only take place as th...

Comfort For Tea Drinkers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Comfort For Tea Drinkers. In the life of most persons a period arrives when the stomach no longer digests enough of the ordinary elements of food to make uj) for the natural daily waste of bodily substances. The size and weight of the body, therefore, begins to diminish more or less perceptibly. At this time tea comes in as a medicine to arrest the waste, to keep the body from falling away too fast, and thus to enable the energetic powers of digestion still to supply as much as is needed to repair the wear and tear of the solid tissues. No wonder, therefore, that tea should be a favorite, on the one hand with the poor, whose supply of substantial food is scanty, and on the other with the aged and infirm, especially of the feebler sexwhose powers of digestion and whose bodily substances have together begun to fail. Nor is it surprising that the aged female, who has barely enough of weekly income to buy what are called the common necessaries of life, should yet spend a portion for her...

Influence of Climate on Man. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Influence of Climate on Man. It is not generally known, but it is nevertheless true, that a pure, moderately dry air generally produces great mental sprightliness, especially with full blooded persons. A cloudy and moist atmosphere, on the other hand produces mental relaxation, and with many, melancholy. This explains why suicides so often happen when the sky is overcast. The depressed mental state is thus further enhanced. Villenuve reports that of every ten suicides which were committed in Paris during two years, nine took place in the rainy season. The influence of the climate is also well exemplified in the case of mountaineers. They are quicker more active and excitable. The Swiss naturalist, Desor, in a recent essay, describes the climate of North America as very changeable and dry. After having explained a number of phenomena produced by the climate in general, depicts its influence upon the inhabitant of this country. He derives from the climate his activity, acuteness, his ...

Our Weekly Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Our Weekly Crop. We present our guests with a plate of Small Fruits, as they enter our ranch this week, and Bhow them a picture of our new Lawton Blackberry, a delicious species of the berry family. After the introductory dish of fruit, we partake of the more solid feast of reason furnished in our library of Mechanical and Scientific Progress, and then sally forth for a trip around the farm. Our Improved Asiatic Fowls first claim our attention, and we are shown How to Distinguish the Different Breeds. Next, we pay a visit to the Percheron Horse, who, on a previous occasion, carried us so rgallautly on our course, and enquire as to his claims of being the pioneer he calls himself. Passing on to the cocoonery, we see how the Cocoon is Spun, and the Chrysalis Killed. The Apiary invites a call, and we witness the interesting ceremony of Introducing an Italian Queen to Native Boos, and the proper method of Chloroforming the industrious insect. The review of Agricultural Notes of the Coas...

Full Blooded Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Full Blooded Stock. The day for the introduction and breed ing of good stock in California is at hand. The vast ranges, and the immense herds of Spanish cattle are among the tilings of the past, and it is well for California that such is the fact. It was this old Spanish system of cattle raising that, in the earlier days of our State, operated so much against the introduction and breeding of good stock, and as this old system has now passed away, we may confidently expect that in a very few years California will become one of the best good stock ' breeding States in the Union. Our farmers are already rapidly waking up to the many advantages to be derived to them as individuals and to the State at large by this change in the stock interests of tho country. It is asserted by a large stock owner, and a gentleman who has been posting himself well upon this subject, that the exhibition of blooded cattle at our State Fair this year will not be excelled at any other State Fair in the Union...

Editorial Notes Eastward.—3. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 27 May 1871

Editorial Notes Eastward.—3. As we continue on, we are continually catching ever varied and beautiful views of the American River, which twists and turns and tosses through the roughest and the wildest and the grandest of places. Now it is in plain sight below us, and now a turn or an intervening rise of the ground conceals it, as we pass on our serpentine path, over a ledge on the face of the mountain or into a low cut in its sides. 212 miles from San Francisco Everywhere are rough locks, high mountains, deep ravines and green trees. With a shriek we dash into darkness, — into the first tunnel we have yet met, which is burrowed through Grizzly Hill, aptly named. We pass through darkness and smoke, and before we have well accustomed our eyes to the changed condition, we are again in daylight. We come to Blue Gallon, blue with the light smoke rising from the many fires of the hardy 209 miles from San Francisco — Altitude 3,824 feet. wood-cutters, who are engaged in getting lumber for...
