Eating Economically. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

Eating Economically. Wo copy the following highly valuable and interesting article from a medical work, thinking it well worth preserving: What kind of food has the most nourishment and the least cost, is a question of great practical importance. The following tables may be studied with considerable interest by every family. They will show the mode of preparation, the amount of nutriment, and the timo required for the digestion of the most common articles of food placed upon our tables. A dollar's worth of meat at twenty-five cents a pound, goes as far as fifty cents' worth of butter, at half a dollar a pound. Three pounds of flour, at eight conts a pound, is said to contain as much nutriment as nine pounds of roast beef, which, at twenty-five cents, is $2.25; that is, twenty-five cents' worth of flour goes as far as nino times that much money spent for roast beef, as weighed at the butcher's stall. A pint of white beans, weighing one pound, and costing seven cents, contaius as much...

Cooking as a Science. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

Cooking as a Science. We heartily endorse the following from Moore's Rural New Yorker: "If Medicine is a science, then Cookery is v science; and to tell the exact truth of the matter, the more important science of the two. If the science of cooking were advanced to the same degree as that of medicine, how very little need there would be of the latter ! But alas ! it is largely in the hands of the most ignorant women in the world. A few men have given their time and talents to the advancement of the science, and the gratitude of the race should be theirs. Why must this science, so vital with interest and value, longer languish ? Must women have the elective franchise before they learn to cook? Must they first learn to cure our ills, before learning how to prevent them? Must the title of M. D. be so immeasurably and falsely greater than that of C. D. ? Are they to fold their hands and wait until men have lifted the science to high honor, usurped the domain themselves, and then moan be...

Domestic Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

Domestic Receipts. To Preserve Strawberries and Raspberries without Boiling.—A correspondent of the Germantown Telegraph who has long practiced the method, recommends the following:—The berries should be picked when the fruit is dry, and put at once into a deep bowl or pan, and bruised gently. Mix with an equal weight of best " sifted" sugar, and put immediately into wide-necked bottles; cork these firmly without delay, and tie bladders over the top. Keep them in a cool place, or the fruit will ferment. This mixture should be stirred softly, and only just sufficiently to blend the sugar and the fruit. The bottles must be perfectly dry, arid the bladders, after having been cleaned in the usual way, and allowed to become nearly dry, should be moistened with a little whiskey or alcohol on the side next the cork. I have thus successfully put up both strawberries and raspberries for future use for ice creams, or cakes or for tarts, without boiling. Home-Made Ink.—The ink made as describe...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

Mechanical Hints. To Make a Concrete Floor. —The following recipe, supplied by a famous English authority, is quoted by the Agricultural Gazette, and may be useful to some of our readers: —"Three parts coal ashes (those from the blacksmith's forge to be preferred) and two ports gas lime from gas works, to be thoroughly mixed and then made into a mortar with gas tar. If the gas tar come from gas works where the ammoniacal liquor is not separated, it will be sufficiently mixed for the purpose; but if the latter be separated, and the tar be thick, it will set quicker if about onefourth part of water be mixed thoroughly with the tar when used. For the floors of cow-sheds, this should be laid about three inches thick in one layer, on an even surface of gravel, or stone broken very small with a sprinkling of gravel over, and rolled down. The mortar may be laid on with a common shovel, and merely patted down flat. In dry, warm weather, if the mortir has been carefully made, the floor will ...

LIFE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

LIFE THOUGHTS. Heab as little as possible of whatever is to the prejudice of others. Believe nothing to the prejudice of others till you are absolutely forced to it. Never drink in the spirit of one who circulates an ill report. Nature will always have her due; but whatsoever is beyond necessity is precarious and unneccsesary Always believe that if the other side were heard, a very different account would be given of any matter. Mind your business, and the public will commend you for so doing. Remember that drinking retards education, industry, and every branch of political and social improvement. The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident. — Lamb. No man will ever be poor who goes to himself for whatever he wants; and that ia the readiest way to obtain riches, whether material or mental. A Friendship of interest cannot last longer than interest itself; and this is the reason why many in prosperity are to much followed, while he ...

One Idea Men. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

One Idea Men. He -who suffers himself to be wholly engrossed by one relation of life, soon ceases to be of value in any other. He loses the balance of character, and becomes onesided and narrow minded. Business is naturally and rightly a means to many high and noble ends, and when thus followed it deserves all honor. But it is too frequently pursued as an end, and is to some the very essence of life itself. It" takes the place of the very objects to promote which is its true destiny, and crowds them out by its own continual presence. He whose soul is always in his business grows unconsciously hard, cold and contracted in his views and feelings. His mind is closed against the light of truth, wisdom and intelligence; his heart is shxit out from the warmth of domestic love and social sympathy. He pleads that he has no time for self-culture, for parental duties, for friendly intercourse; when the truth is that he ought to have no time for a business so engrossing as to crowd out these u...

The Partz Sugar Refiner. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

The Partz Sugar Refiner. As this will create a revolution in an important industry, if it shall prove a success, we trust it will be interesting to our readers to keep them on the track of the experiments. The first two trials were to find the best consistency of tho boiled syrup, for casting sugar-loaves containing 1,500 pounds in one body. Tho third filling proved this point; for the sugar was all right. But another obstacle exists, which probably the -4th filling will remove, as it is merely » matter of mechanism. It was supposed that lifting tho big sugar-loaf from the upright cylinder was a mere affair for ordinary block and tackle. But it is found necessary to make a change in the preparation of the cylinder, to escape the adhesion of the sugar to the sides. When this is all that stands between experiment and success, it may be considered that this invention is soon to be added to our list of noteworthy California discoveries. Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. Otti, the m...

[From the Sacramento Reporter.] Our Sanitarium. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

[From the Sacramento Reporter.] Our Sanitarium. "From the bleak polo no windsinclementblow, Mold the round hail or flake the tleeey snow: Hut from tho breesy deep the blest inhale The fragrant murmurs of the western gale.' Tho notion, so long and fondly held by our people, that California is a vast sanitarium, is effectually exploded. On the whole, California is a highly favored State, rich in her agricultural, mineral and other resources, and posessed of a good climate; but it is far from being true that invalids from other parts of the country can come here and find everywhere within our borders the balm they seek. Even onr most delightful localities, like Santa Ortiz and San liafael, where health seems to "float amid the gentlo atmosphere and mantle on the stream," when visited by eminent medical men, have been found to be unsafe places for invalids, particularly consumptives. The robust denizens of those charming little towns may be disinclined to accept this, but their places h...

HUMOROUS. Countkk Ikhitants.—Peoplo who exauiine the whole stock and buy nothing. Some signs aro very BUspioiou*. For instance, "1 Steele, Dry Goods." Speculation is a word that sometimes begins with the socond letter. What was the end of St. Stephen ? He was " rocked to sleep." Little fish have a proper idea of business. Not being able to do better, they start on a small scale. Whence does a cook learn the time to sound "his shrill clarion?" From his crownometer. Punch thinks it would be a real blessing to mothers it Bomebody could invent a soap that would enable mammal to get their daughters oil' their hands. Jokes.—A little boy in a Danvors school was asked by his teacher for lODW reason why women should not vote, ami triumphantly answered: "Cause they are afraid oi caterpillars." When a cat prepares to wash her face, it is a certain sign that at least one in the house is to have a licking.

On Strawberries. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

On Strawberries. Tho strawberry is one uv nature's sweet pets. She makes them worth flftj cents, the furst she makes, and never allows them to be sold at a moan prico. The culler uv the strawberry is like the sitting Him under a thin cloud, with a delicate dasli uv the rainbo in it; its fragrance i/, like the breath uv a baby when it furst begins to eat wintergreen lozziiigors; its flavor iz like the negtar which an old-fash-ioned goddess used to havo in the bottom uv the tumbler when Jupiter stood treat on Mount Ida. There is many breeds of this deliteful vegetable, but a mean one in the hullot. I think I hove Btolo them lying around loose, without any pedigree, in somebody's tall grass when I wuz a lazy schoolboy, that eat dreadful easy, without any whites sugar on them, and even a bug occasionally mixed with 'em in the hurry of tho moment.
