Politics and the Industries. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Politics and the Industries. As conductors of an Agricultural and Scientific journal we have no interest in politics as between the different political parties of the country. With the policy of the State and National governments, however, in reference to tho development of the resources and industries of the country, avo feel a lively interest, and believe it our duty to express that interest and our views in regard to that policy whenever tho occasion requires. That occasion we believe is now at hand. Both political parties are now taking the initiatory stops for placing beforo the people candidates for all the state and county offices, and for three representatives to Congress. There are comparatively but few people in the State who have a direct personal political interest in the party contest which is now being inaugurated. Those few are the candidates themselves, and all who hope or expect to receive somo political or personal favor from those candidates, if they shall be so s...

A Refuge for Invalids. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

A Refuge for Invalids. The ill effects of indiscriminate praise are well illustrated in the case of the climate of California. It has been only too common for us to extol the excellence of the climate of any part of our coast. The result has been that visitors from other countries havo come hither, have visited several localities which havo been extravagantly puffed, have found that false statements havo been made with regard to these places, and havo been confirmed in the opinion that, as some of the most highly lauded localities aro absolutely unfitted for the purposes for which they are extolled, therefore California has no climate at all. This opinion is now only too general abroad, and it is of the highest importance that the false impression should bo corrected by careful, well authenticated statements of the actual facts of the case. That many places are unfit for invalids must bo acknowledged. Our climato is generally salubrious, generally excellent for healthy persons. And ...

The two locomotives, in tandem, with their flery throats consuming a cord of wood each in less than a hundred minutes, constantly showering live sparks, and with reflecting head lights, effected a more brilliantly lighted interior than is wont to be met with elsewhere in the "caverns of the earth." At some places we could see a long distance forward, and I watched the huge, glistening icicles, pendant from the roof or crevices in the overhanging rock, with a feeling of certaint...

Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming. Our Pacific Coast magazine, the Overland, comes to us for June with its usual pleasing variety. From its rich pages, overflowing with charms, we cull the following concerning a lake of which we have all read so much and yet know so little. Lake Yellowstone is a lonely, but lovely inland sea, everywhere surrounded by "forests primeval," and nestled in the bosom of the Rocky Mountains. Some trappers have insisted that its waters ran both to the Atlantic and the Pacific, but such is not the case. The summit of the chain, however, approaches within half a mile of its south shore, and in places the divide is very little above the lake. Its shape resembles the broad hand of an honest German, who has had his forefinger and the two adjoining shot off at the second joint, while fighting for glory and Emperor William. The palm of the hand represents the main body, or north part, of the lake. The fingers and thumb, spread to their utmost extent—the thumb and little f...

What the Women Dream About. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

What the Women Dream About. NELL VAN [Written for the Vkkss.] I was sitting at an open window, finishing the button holes in Joey's trowserx, and thinking how fine the little follow would look ou the morrow, in his new suit; when the fragrance of spring violets and early daffodils was wafted in from the garden by the fresh afternoon breeze, and a delicious, dreamy sensation crept me. Just then I saw my sister leading her pony up to the piazza, ready for a ride, and laying her hat and riding skirt on a chair, she said:—" Come here, jump into the saddle and take a gallop, while I go and see these visitors who are euteriug the gate." Weary with close application to daily duties, and seldom taking any recreation, I at first thought I could not spare the time for mere selfish enjoyment. But my next impulse was to don her skirt and hat, and in a minute more I "was cantering down the road. I had left all care behind, and the bracing air so invigorated me that my heart glowed with gratitude...

Earnest Action. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Earnest Action. All the mighty thoughts of ages Borne along the stream of time; All the burning words of sages, Tend to make the world sublime. On their banners, Right and Duty— This it is that onward cheers; Not the dreams of coming beauty, Floating on the tide of years. In the hottest of the battle ILivo we time to think of life? Are we, spite the cannon's rattle, Eager for the coming strife? Do we think of any other lint the present, tierce and strong? Do wo teach our hearts to smother All the insult of v wrong? When the watchword—Truth forever Shall impel the world along, Then the bravo hearts' strong endeavor Shall bo crowned with victory song. Not in idle thought and dreaming ■ Can wo right a grievous wrong; Not by any outward seeming, Though our faith in good bo strong. But by earnest thought and action We may roll away the stone, Quell the tumult of the faction, Hurl the giant from his throne. Thus shall tee use all our power, Take the truth from ages sent; Culminating for t...

A Letter from Tony. Dear Rural. —Somebody told mo that you had sent for all tho likenesses of your friends, who write for your paper, to hang up in your office. How I should like to see them, for somehow we get half-way acquainted with folks by reading what they write.

The Verdict of a Jury of Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

The Verdict of a Jury of Boys. When Dr. Nathaniel Prentice taught a public school in Koxbury, Mass., he was very much of a favorite, hut his patience at times would get nearly exhausted by the infraction of school rules by the scholars. On one occasion, in a wrathy way, lie threatened to punish the first boy detected in whispering, with six blows of tho ferrule, and appointed some detectors. Shortly after, one of these detectors shouted: "Master John Zeigler is whispering." John was called up and asked if it was a fact. (John, by tho way, was a favorite both of the teacher and his schoolmates.) "Yes," answered John, "I was not aware what I was about. I was intent on working out a sum and requested tho ono who sat next to reach me the arithmetic thut contained the rule which I wished to see." The doctor regretted his hasty threat, but told John he could not sutler him to whisper and escape tho punishment, and continued: "I wish I could avoid it, but I cannot without a forfeiture of m...

Chemistry of the Kitchen. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Chemistry of the Kitchen. How to Make Soup. The ordinary dish of soup is an article of diet which is entirely dependent upon boiling for its cooking. Simply bringing the ingredients to a boil, as practiced by many, does not make a soup, but results in a mess, which no one can oat with satisfaction, and has caused a general dislike to soups which, when properly prepared, are the simplest, cheapest, most wholesome, nutritive and delightful article of food. Long protracted boiling is almost as great an evil as the first mentioned one. We will first examine the evils resulting from the foregoing falso method of cooking Houps, and then proceed to discuss a simple; but more rational method. Ist. When soup is not sufficiently boiled, the meat generally used, being such as is not available for other methods of cooking, remains tough and unpalatable, the liquid watery and insipid, and vegetables raw, hard and uncooked in the center. This mess of stringy meat, greasy water and uncooked vegeta...

Domestic Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Domestic Receipts. How to Select a Good Silk.—A piece of good silk should possess three particular requisites—it should be soft, smooth and lustrous. The softer it is the, better, provided it is close woven and not flimsy. The best way to determine its softness is to gather it in folds across its width, and observe its appeai'ance. If it be good the folds will be round and soft in outline, like a piece of nice fine flannel; but if it be poor and stiff the folds will present sharp angles and points. Such silk, when made up, will always present angular folds and sharp projections, by which the fibres are easily broken. We all know the difference between the wear of anything with sharp, angular surfaces, and one with rounded, graceful projections. We have said it should also be smooth. This may be tested by any one of delicate touch, by passing the fabric between the thumb and fore finger, when any imperfection or roughness will be readily perceived. One of the chief characteristics of...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Mechanical Hints. To Make a Superior Sand Paper.— Take a quantity of broken window glass (that which has rather a green appearance on the edge is best;) pound it in an iron mortar; then have two or three sieves, of different degrees of fineness, ready for use when wanted. Take any good tough paper (fine cartridge is the best;) level the knobs and lumps on both sides with pumicestone; tack it at each corner on a board, and, with good clear glu> j, diluted with about one-third more water than is used generally for wood work, go quickly over the paper, taking care to 82) read it even with your brush; then, having your sieve ready, sift the pounded glass over it lightly, yet so as to cover it in every part; let it remain till the glue is set, take it from the board, shake off the superfluous glass into the sieve, and hang it in the shade to dry. In two or three days, it will be fit for use. The paper will be much better than any you can buy —sand being frequently mixed with t...

LIFE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

LIFE THOUGHTS. W k should beware of judging ourselves by what others think of us. He who would stop every man's mouth must have a great deal of meal. The more you exercise your memory the better and more reliable it will become. An active life is the best guardian of virtue, and the greatest preservative of health. Have the courage to provide entertainment for your friends within your means, not beyond. A sincere confession of our ignorance, is one of the fairest and surest testimonies of our judgment. It is always in our power to make friends by smiles; what folly then, to make an enemy by frowns. A firm faith is the best divinity; a good life is the best philosoj>hy; a clear conscience the best law; honesty the best policy; and temperance the best physic. honest reputation is within the reach of all men; they obtain it by social virtues, and by doing their duty. Content and patience are the two virtues which conquer and overthrow all anger, malice, wrath and back-biting...

A Beautiful Allegory. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

A Beautiful Allegory. A traveler who spent some time in Turkey relates a beautiful parable which was told him by a dervish, and which seems even more beautiful than Sterne's celebrated figure of the accusing spirit and recording angel. "Every man" said the dervish, "has two angels, one on his right shoulder and one on his left. When he does anything good, the angel on the right shoulder writes it down and seals it, because what has been done is done forever. When he does anything evil, the angel on his left shoulder writes it down and waits till midnight. If before that time the man bows his head and exclaims, "Gracious Allah!I have sinned—forgive me ! " the angel rubs out the record; but if not, at midnight he seals it, and the angel on the right shoulder weeps." Young Men. —Most young men consider it a great misfortune to be poor, or not to have capital enough to establish themselves at their outset of life in a good business. This is a mistaken notion. So far from poverty being a...

Our Wheat Crop; and What of It? [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

Our Wheat Crop; and What of It? Editors Tress.—The constant recurronce of this subject in our various papers reminds me of the times when every paper brought us the consoling news of "all quiet on the Potomac." It seems now as then, that every writer must give his guess which way tho armies will move next, Will Gen. Plenty so marshal his forces in the few grain^ growing counties as to meet and repel Gen. Scarcity coming in from the mountains and the plains V Or will Gen. Scarcity be able to form a junction of his forces with the 170,000 non-producers about the Bay City; and'so invite Gen. Starvation to sweep this whole country with his invincible cohorts ? Within a few days past I have been riding along the lines,—not at the front—but among the hastes. Napa Valley will be able to send a few thousands to the front in good time for the conflict. But seriously; it appears to me that the various reports in the papers are calculated though not intended, to mislead. One gives the names of...
