Muscle vs. Brains. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Muscle vs. Brains. Youug mon formerly W9nt to college to cultivate thoir intellects and acquire useful knowledge; but judging from newspaper reports, we conclude that muscle is superseding brain in some of our venerable collogea. The sharpest and most exciting competition is found in base ball and the boat race. Would it not be much better to develop muscle in some useful way V There are a thousand ways in which muscle may be strengthened, and at the sametimo other valuable results may be produced. When the race is run, or the game played, there is no availablo product, unless it bo improved muscle; but oven that is doubtful as things now go. But let the award—the champion's belt, or whatever it is—be given him who can turn the most perfect horse-shoe at a single heat, make the best pannel door in a given time, or something of the kind that will be of use to the world. The game or other sports are useful when indulged in moderately, but when carried to excess, as some of them now ar...

Home Courtesies. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Home Courtesies. The happiest household in the world is that in which courtesy is new every morning and fresh every evening, like the celestial benedictions. How many of us make home the rag-bag of ill humors and cuprioei and wretched moods of every kind, while wo carefully hide them from the stranger. When the guest arrives, we slide a chair over the rent in the carpet, and slip I a tidy over the worn edge of the sofa eush • ion, and lay a prettily-bound book over the 1 ink Stain upon the parlor table cloth; and so at his coming the flying hair is smoothed, and the sullen look is gilded with a smile, and the sour tone is suddenly wonderfully sweet. Shriveled old Autumn blooms in a moment into rosy Spring. And how is a youth to know that this house, whore everything seems to smile, is not always as warm and sunny as he finds it? Yet this young woman, so neatly dressod, so quietly mannered, ho fascinating to the young man, maybe the most " inefficient" of human beings. Still he on in...

The Eyes of Insects. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

The Eyes of Insects. Have any of our young folks ever thought what a wonderful thing the human eye is, by which they are enabled to see and recognize their friends, and to look upon and enjoy the beautiful tlowers, and all the thousands of objects of interest by which they are surrounded? How it rolls from sido to side, up and down, in all directions.to save its owner the truoblo of turning his head every time he wishes to change the object of his vision. It is really a wonderful thing! Tho lower orders of creation have also eyes wonderfully made, but very different from yours. Many of them, like the fly, the ant, and the bee and many similar insects, have eyes which do not move; but this is compensated by their having a great number of them. Our artist has drawn and engraved one of these curious eyes— that of a bee—from which you will understand how these numerous eyes, in one individual, are situated, and how the little insects can make use of them. By looking at Figure 1, in the ...

Ironing Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Ironing Made Easy. Good ironing of clothes is a lino art, and is acquired by patient practice, and the habit of doing all work conscientiously. Infmnilii's where there are young girls, there is often much nice ironing to do, and it should never fall to the mother's charge, but should be done by those who require it except in cases whore servants are kept for that purpose; and it is always well for vonng ladies to know how to iron in the best manner, even when there is no necessity for their doing it. Nothing more greatly facilitates the process of ironing than to have each one who irons possess her own ironing tools, such as holders, etc. In otherwise orderly families, I have seen young ladies catch up almost anything that was conveniently near, to hold irons with; often scorching valuable articles not suitable for the purpose. Ironing Bags. It will be found a great convenience for each holier to have a bag, fifteen or eighteon inches square, suitably furnished, and used only by her...

Domestic Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Domestic Receipts. Cooling Drinks.—The presence of hot weather is creating a demand for mild and cooling drinks. We append two very good receipts for preparing such:— A delicious and slightly aperient effervescing citrate of magnesia may be made by thoroughly mixing 3 ounces of powdered loaf sugar with 2 ounces of powdered citric acid, then add % ounce of calcined magnesia, 1% ounce of bicarbonate of soda, and 1% ounce of tartaric acid. Pass the whole thrice through a fine sieve, and then moisten it with very strong alcohol. Granulate it by passing it through a coarse sieve, and dry on a wooden tray at a temperature of 50 J C. When dry add ten drops of essential oil of lemons, and then bottle at once in clean dry bottles. A Convenient and Excellent Beer for summer may be made as follows:—Take two ounces of ground ginger; one ounce of cream of tartar; one and one-half pounds of white sugar, and two lemons cut in thin slices and seeds taken out. Pour on these ingredients three gallons...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Mechanical Hints. Whitewash of Different Coloks. — Take of good unslacked lime half a bushel; slack with warm water (rain water if convenient) in a forty-five gallon barrel. Keep covered while slacking. Use just enough water to slack dry. Let the lime stand four or five hours to insuro its being well slacked. If it is desirable to have a good, smooth wash, the slacked lime should be sifted through a moderately fine sieve; if to be used on barns, out-buildings, and fences, it is not material about sifting. To the lime thus prepared, add enough water to half fill the barrel, then add twogallons of flour starch, hot; one quart of grease (to make it run smoothly); four pounds of melted rosin, hot, to make it stick. The floured starch will also have the same effect. Some use salt in making whitewash. We would not, as salt in damp weather causes the wash to crack and scale off. After preparing the whitewash as above, fill your barrel with water, cold or hot, and you will have a wash that ...

LIFE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

LIFE THOUGHTS. Nothing renders the mind so narrow and so little as the want of social intercourse. Virtue and happiness are mother and daughter. Wise Men make more opportunities than they find. False Pride is the spiked fence that shuts us out from the garden of Paradise. Humility and generous truth are the angels that open the gates for our entrance into Paradise. A sincere confession of our ignorance is one of the fairest and surest testimonies of our judgment. The Fearful Doom. —It is comparatively easy to refrain from forming habits of intemperance; but it is almost impossible to break away from them when formed. Any one can drift. But it takes prayer, religions principle, earnestness of purpose, and constant watching to resist the evil of this world—to struggle against the tide. Could we see things as God sees them, we Bhouid not have a solitary wish for a single alteration in our circumstances; we should say "It is well." Chbistians pray with outspread, but clean hands; with u...

Good Sense. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Good Sense. Tlic a-reat, trouble among American youth is the lack of application and thoroughness in what .they undertake. Anything that cannot be learned by superficial study is given the go-by for something less tedious and irksome. Study and hard labor are looked at from a wrong standpoint; and as a consequence the clerkship ranks are full of unemployed young men, and the professions are overflowing with mediocrity, while good mechanics find plenty of work -at living prices. The evil spoken of is seriously felt. And those who work at a trade do it in so loose and careless a manner that they often are not competent to do the work they promise to do. We are needy in every condition. We are soldiers, and we need that grace should find us both shield and sword. We are pilgrims, and we need that love should give us both a staff and a guide. We are sailing over the sea of life, and we need that the wind of the Spirit shall fill our sails and that Christ shall be our pilot. There is fig...

Santa Cruz Farmers' Club. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Santa Cruz Farmers' Club. [Reported for tho Press by Rover Conant.] Tho Club met on Saturday afternoon, June 3d. S. S. Roberts and 0. P. Batchelder were elected members. Mr. Locke, from tUe committee on books, made a partial report, and was allowed till the next meeting to complete it. The report of the Committee on Grasses being called for, Mr. Morgan said:—From what I can learn, little effort has been made here to cultivate new varieties of grasses. So far as they have been made, forage grasses have failed. Where alfalfa grass has been raised in tho hills, the gophers have destroyed it. In some parts of the foot-hills it'has been raised successfully, but that depends upon the character of the soil. Very little has been raised in our foot-hills. From all the information I can obtain, it has proved a failure. Tho alfalfa would not thrive here. Mr. Wood—l was asking Mr. Pllkington, who lives near me, about these grasses. He said that in Mexico they used to raise two crops every seaso...

A Subterranean Stream in Los Angeles County. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

A Subterranean Stream in Los Angeles County. The following article from the Los Angeles ifctMwill be read with interest in connection with the letter of our Los Angeles correspondent on pago 371 of the present issue:— The success of the experiment of Messrs. Downey a- Besudry in sinking artesian wells on their tract on the rancho of San Pedro of Dominqnei demonstrates the existence of conditions of great importance and bids fair to open a new field to enterprise and to render fertile a largo area of land now unproductive on account of want of water. The wells are situated on the elevated portion of tho plain and midway between this city and Wilmington. The subterraneous stream is tapped at the depth of about 120 feet, and the water rushes through a seven-iuch pipe with a force which renders manifest the existence of a largo supply beneath the plains—a mighty river flowing underground from the mountains to the sea. The Course of the Hidden Stream. Tho ridge of land which seems to lie...

Railroad Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 17 June 1871

Railroad Progress. Washington Territory and Oregon. Tho Northern Pacific is beiug pushed with energy. The road is rapidly advancing at the eastern end. The first spike of the Pacific division was driven on May Kith, at Kalama, W. T., and grading, track-laying, etc., are progressing actively. The contract for grading 25 miles from Kalama towards Puget Bound calls for tho completion of this in October. The route of the road is still a secret. The citizens of Walla Walla have been active in their endeavor to have it run through their placo. At least, it was stated that, per agreement with tho N. P., they paid to have a survey mado with this view, from their city to Wallula, on tho Columbia River, 31' a miles. This showed the whole fall between the two points to be 600 feet; heaviest grade, (51) feet; estimated cost, $21,271 per milo. Tho W. W. Union, of May 27th, publishes tho report of the survey, which is to be laid before the N. 1\ C lo., although the line would appear to be only a ...
