The Rain Fall in Stanislaus. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
The Rain Fall in Stanislaus. Editors Press:—As the month of May is almost passed, allow me to report to you the rains for this month in our part of Stanislaus county. We have had three showers in May: Miv 16 tho amount which fell was 0.05 in. May 36 ' •■••j)/Si '„' May 28 ' " ••••°-J' Total for May 0.46 iv. This makes the entire amount of rain for the season of 70 and 71, at this locality, 7.21 inches. Dr. Logan iv his most servicable raintable' for 21 years past, shows that the amount of rain at Sacramento, in the dry season of '63 and '64 was 7.Wi inches, or more tnan we have had, so far, this season. Then why are we making better crops in portions of our valley than were made in 'I',.")? Is it not chiefly because wo had more rain in February '71 than in February 'til V Dr. Logan shows there was 0.18 or less than OM-flfth of an inch in February 'Gi, while last Febru wry we had in our locality 1.4 i inches or tight Hnus as much as fell in Sacramento in February '64.

Calves Dying. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
Calves Dying. Editors Press:—We have recently lost eight or ten calves from three to five months old, and in good flesh. They commenced breathing very short and died in a few days. On examination we found small white worms in the air tubes of their lungs, from three-fourths to one and a half inches long, and about the size of a hair in a horse's t ill. We tried everything Aye could think of without avail. I have never heard of such a thing before. If you or any of your readers can give me any information through your paper of any remedy, I will be much obliged. The air tubes of the lower part of the lungs were filled full of them. M. OftBOBN. Tomales, May 28, I*7l. "F. W. H." Sacramento. We are not *equainted with the parties to whom you refer, and henoe are unable to answer the question you propound from any personal knowledge of them.
Agricultural Representation. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
Agricultural Representation. The following very sensible remarks are from the March and April number of the monthly report of the department of agriculture at Washington :— Regret is felt by the true friends of agriculture that so few farmers should be found in the hulls of legislation, and especially in Congress. If it is true that national detriment results from the non-rep-resentation of tenant-farmers in the British House of Commons, an affirmation recently made as a fact to be deprecated, how much greater the loss from lack of agricultural representation in a nation of independent, thrifty, and intelligent farmers ! It is not that there is the slightest dilliculty in finding men of the breadth and brains of an average Congress among the farmers of any individual State; butfarmers are isolated, and unable to combine with facility; they are more independent, and thus in feeling and fact are less inolined to " crook the pregnant hinges of the knee where | political | thrift may fo...
Our Future Fruit Market. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
Our Future Fruit Market. It is evident that a vast trade in fruit must aoon grow up between this State and the States and Territories this side of the headwaters of|the Missouri; while as yet we are prepared to supply but a small demand beyond our own borders. The great Salt Lake Basin, and the country beyond, as fur as, and including the Eastern base of the Book; Mountain*, must ever look to California for its supply of fruit. Those regions will soon contain very large populations, attracted] thither by tho unparalleled richness of tho mines, tho cheapness of lands, and tho facilities afforded by tha numerous railroads now in process of construction or in contemplation. The experiments of last year have conclusively shown that many kinds of fruit can bo transported safely, and to a profit, even as far as New York; while nearly everything in the fruit line, even to strawberries, can bo s-mt] across the mountains. The market for grapes is without limit. In addition to their demand fo...
Raspberries. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
Raspberries. TheGermantown Telegraph, good authority, ways:—There is nothing easier to grow than the raspberry, and of all our small fruit it is the mott wholesome and to be preferred. Theblackberrj may boas whole* some when it is in perfection, but the strawberry, while it is a delicious fruit, and chosen by many to all others, is postivelv injurious to a considerable proportion of persons. It contains an acidity of a very peculiar and powerful nature. It affects the blood and produces eruptions; and people subject to gout are prohibited from touching the fruit. Raspberries, on the other hand, are not. merely innocuous, but they are extremely wholesome, and can be eaten in any desired quantity. Raspberry canes should bo planted threo feet apart in tho row and the rows three feet apart. Cut down the canes to within six inches of tho ground and set firmly. We prefer rather a moist spot for them, and if in the shade a portion of the day so much the better. They can be planted under fr...
How to Prevent Mildew on Gooseberries. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
How to Prevent Mildew on Gooseberries. A Correspondent of the Canada Farmer, gives his experience in the matter as follows: About thirty years ago I got some plants of the English gooseberry, and when tho tinio for fruit came round they yielded nothing but poor, dirty looting, worthiest stuff, year after year, on account of tho mildew. At the time I could not understand what was the matter—not even knowing what mildew was. After several years of trial I pulled up tho bushes. About eight or nine year* ago I procured some bushes of the English variety, of two different sorts — one red, tho other green; but, as on the previous occasion, these were effected with mildew. By this time I had heard of many preventives, such as sulphur, tar, bark, boards, etc. I tried all these, but with little success. Being very fond of gooseberries, I determined not to givo up,and remembering that one of my bushes, of tho first lot, had by oversight been spared, it being in a corner of the garden where th...
The Grape Crop in Sonoma. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871
The Grape Crop in Sonoma. A correspondent, "E. P. II.," writes from PeUluma that the cold weather and high wind, which lma lately prevailed, has caused the blight and mildew to appear, to some extent, on the young grapes in the vicinity of l'etaluma. He adds:- " "Wo hope, however, that the complaint will not be general. We daily learn the lesson of the varied climate of California. The cause of the injury to the grape is the salvation of the grain and hay, as well as many other things grown in this neighborhood. Sonoma has no real causo for complaint this dry year." The Hyde Road Stkambr, after the article in another column was written, drew, at Baoremento, *Atm of the State- Capitol colurns, or a total of thirty nine tons; moreover, it drew this load at ono time, with only one driving wheel in gear. This speaks well for the powers of the machine. Afkican Diamonds.—lt is said that s,Bo2diamonds wore shipped from the African diamond Holds, last year. They were generally of an inferio...

The Last Rain in May. ii TITOS M. LOGAN, M. I).. of Sacramento, Permanent 15y lUU Secretary of the State Board of Health. In all our remarks respecting tho rainfall of this Benson, we havo invariably advocated the great probability of more or less rain in May—perhaps sufficient to mature the crops. To confirm our prediction, it has at last come, although rather later than \vo would have denirod. To show that our expectation was not conjectural, but based upon the averago prospects furulbhed by statistics, wo Bubjoin the following table, which cannot fail to prove of intercut to our agricultural friends. It will bo Been that in none of the S3 years has the rain ever failed in May; and only in one year (1857) did it decline to a sprinkle: BUNFALL IN MAY, AT BACRAMKNTO, DUUINQ 22 YEARS. 1850—Total for May, 0.250 Date of lust ruin, 25th Mi— " " 0.890 " " 20th i HV &gt;- " " 0-300 " " 17th 185:)- " " 1 •■*!"&gt;« " " Mth 1H.14- " " 0.210 " " 18th i«ss_ " " 1.150 " " 20th ...
