LAWN MOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

LAWN MOWER. There comes to us the description of a very neat lawn mower, which seems to embody the good points of many other machines, without their objectionable features. This is the so-called "Landscape" mower, an illustration of which is here given, and of certain points of which mention may be made. For throwing the machine in or out of gear, in place of a rachet and spring, a patent friction pawl is used, so that the mower is always in gear when going forward, and always out of gear, and noiseless, when going backwards. This pawl is entirely concealed, and, like the gearing, is protected from obstructions by grass, dirt and other substances. By means of an adjustable roller, in the rear of the knife bar, an easily-running machine is produced, which, we are told, accommodates itself to any unevenness of the ground, mowing borders or lawn alike, complete without trouble of change, and thus dispensing with shoes or rollers in front of the cutter, which beat down the grass and mak...

THE BEET SUGAR INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

THE BEET SUGAR INTEREST. Whenever any new manufacturing interest is started in this city or vicinity, there is always a hard fight made by jobbers and importers to crush out the now industry. Of course the Beet Sugar enterprise has been no exception. The first attack upon that was in a material reduction of the price of the class of sugar manufactured at Alvarado; but the people were greatly benefitted by that move, and the Alvarado Company can well afford to manufacture at the reduced price. The next attempt was to frighten capitalists from investing in the numerous projects for other manufactories which were set on foot, as soon as the success at Alvarado was made known. A statement in detail of the cost of manufacturing beet sugar was widely circulated in several of our leading pajwrs; but its authors overdid their work by the extravagance of their figures, which were so arranged as to show an annual loss of about $30,000 to an establishment of the capacity of the Alvarado works....

The Donner Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

The Donner Tragedy. A THRILLING CHAPTER IN OUR PIONEER HISTORY. [Written for the PaSM.] The sufferings of the Dormer party, who were snowed in. and detained on the mountains more than throe months, in the winter of 1840-7, has boon much talked about, and some garbled stories have been published; but from the very nature of the ease, anything like a true history was difficult to come at. My informant, who was one of the general company to which the Dormer party originally belonged, says that she has never soon anything like a true or competent history of that most horrible period in the lives of these unfortunates. The following she is ready to vouch for, as truth; and if anyone desires further information, or confirmation of what is alredy given, her name and address will be at their service. By retracing, though but in idea, the difficult and dangerous steps of the early emigrants, we are enabled more fully to appreciate the homos of comfort, competence and beauty, to which they ha...

Modern Rules of Good Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Modern Rules of Good Breeding. A work entitled "(rood Society" says that the corner of a visiting card is turned down to indicate that the caller intends the compliment of her visit to include some other member of the family in the house. A lady should not rise from her seat when a gentleman is brought up and introduced to her, unleM he is an elderly man, or, from peculiar circumstances or family connection, the lady wishes to pay him the marked attention of * shaking hands at a tirst interview. When people meet at the house of a common friend, they may converse together without an introduction, if they tind themselves in proximity, and an occasion arises for speaking; but, without a special introduction, neither lady should recognize the other if they meet in public the next day.

Dried Beef. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Dried Beef. In our lust issue wo gave a very good receipt for cooking dried beef. We here append some very pertinent remarks upon the use of this very good and convenient article of diet, from the American Agriculturist: "The good qualities of dried beef us an article of food for the family, are not fully appreciated. In point of excellence, it is one of the nicest articles, when properly prepared, that we have in our storeroom. It is also one of the most economical articles of food; quite a small quantity of dried beef, shaved very line, and cooked with a nice gravy, will serve for meat for a family at very small expense. 'Then it is so convenient to have; always ready; always acceptable. To people who live convenient to market, it is not of so much importance; but to us, who live at a distance from towns, dried beef is one of the necessary articles in our bill of fare. We frequently entertain guests at our table wlio never have seen dried beef served other*than as a relish for bre...

About Biliousness. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

About Biliousness. Biliousness is a common malady. A great many people are bilious. They have no dyspepsia, they never had a symptom of dyspepsia in their life; they are only bilious. "Now this word biliousness is a sort of respectable cover for piggishness. People are not bilious when they eat as they should. Reader, are you bilious? [Bather a hard question after the above hard word.] Let me prescribe for you. If you follow my prescription, and don't get well, write me, and in the next edition I will announce my error. First, on getting up and going to bed drink plenty of cold water. Eat for the morning meal, until the bilious attack passes, a little stale bread, say one slice, and a piece as large as your hand of boiled beef or mutton. If tin 1 weather is warm, take instead a little cracked wheat or oatmeal porridge. For dinner take about or near the same thing. Go without your supper. Exercise freely in the open air, producing perspiration, once or twice a day. In a few days your...

Household Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Household Receipts. Muffin Pudding—Something Nice.— For a muffin pudding, cut six stale muffins in very thin slices, lay them in a deep dish, pour over them half a pint of brandy, in which you will let them soak. Simmer half a pint of cream with a stick of cinnamon, the grated peel of a large lemon, and four ounces of lump sugar. Let it remain simmering over the fire for ten minutes, then take oft" and keep stirring until cold, then mix it by degrees with the yolks of eight eggs, well beaten, butter a plain mold and line it with muffins, the crusty side being outwards. Fill up the mold with alternate layers of dried cherries or other fruit, and the crumbs of the muffin. Flavor the custard with orangeflower water, and pour it into the mold. Keep the mould upright, by sitting it in bran until the custard has soaked in. Then bake it half an hour.

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Mechanical Hints. RuBAL Picture Frames. —Rustic wood for this and other purposes is in great favor nowadays. With a little care in ■election of material, and skill in handling tools, we may frame our engravings and paintings at slight cost. Oak wook, denuded of the bark, presents a beautifully corrugated surface, out of which the knife easily removes the few fibres which adhere, and it is ready for varnishing as soon as it is seasoned. The "season cracks," should they occur, may be filled with dark-brown putty, and will even high ten the general effect. Take a thin board, of the right size and shape, for the foundation of "mat," saw out the inner oval or rectangular form to suit the picture. Nail on the edge a rustic frame made of the branches of hard seasoned wood, and garnish the corners with some pretty device, such, for instance, as a cluster of acorns. Ivy may be trained to grow around these frames with beautiful effect. — Scientific American. Bronzing for Leather.—Dissolve a a...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Life Thoughts. There comes a time when one sweet child-face is more to us than all the world beside. He is our friend who helps us to one new thought or who inspires us to one noble action. The soul without passion is like unripe fruit; not until the sunshine of a real love touches it, does it develoj) sweetness and perfection. The best sometimes, err, but still remain the best; while the worst is well at times, yet still remain the worst. A Beautiful Thought was that in the mind of a little girl, who, on beholding a faded rose, round which three little buds were unfolded, exclaimed to her brother : " Bee, Willie, these little buds have awakened in time to kiss their mother before she dies." How to Secure Pheasant Dreams.—A French writer has said that to dream gloriously, you must act gloriously when awake; and to bring angels down to hold converse with you in your sleep, you must labor in the cause of virtue during the day.

Testing a Man. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Testing a Man. No man is a man till lie is tried; till ho has passed through the ordeal; through deep water and scorching tires. A man surrounded with comforts, friends and relations, food and raiment; whose barns are lilled with plenty, and whose presses gush out with new wines; who eats his till; sits and reads, doles about, taking his ease and pleasure; smoking his pipe and chewing his cud; is he a man? Far from it. A man is not a man until he is proved—has passed the ordaaldrank the bitter cup; risen above life's conflicts; mounted the billows of the wave. "Was Joseph a man in deed, till he wiis cast into the pit; torn away from the bewitching tempter, leavinghis garments behind; till he groaned in the prison house? Was Moses a man till he had passed the fiery ordeal? Was Paul truly a man till ho suffered perils by sea and land, and finally received forty stripes save one. Let a man be forsaken of all, as was Job —then if he comes out, rising triumphantly over all obstacles, he ...

LARGE AND SMALL BEET SUGARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

LARGE AND SMALL BEET SUGARIES. Editoks Pkess: —Four years ago, when the late George Gordon gave to the public his views on the introduction of the beet sugar industry to California, it became quite generally understood from his writings, that .the profitable -working of what he termed "Rural Sugaries" was a matter of grave question. "Whether the farmer having suitable soil, and say $10,000 or £15,---000 ready cash, could engage profitably in beet sugar making, without recourse to association as the means of raising a much larger capital. It is quite true that when $800,000, can be had for the erection of a sugarie capable of working daily 200 tons of beets, yielding 16 tons of sugar, that the profit 00 the investment is much larger in proportion than when #'200,000 is employed in a 100 tons-a-day sugarie, or 8100,000 in a 50 tons-a-day sugarie, or only $12,000 in a sugarie capable of working but 10 tons in a day, and yielding but 2,500 pounds of sugar. But it does not follow from th...

LAMP ATTACHMENT FOR SEWING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

LAMP ATTACHMENT FOR SEWING MACHINES. The importance of a good light directly on the work in hand, and not thrown into the eyes of the operator, cannot be overestimated, especially for those persons who are obliged to subject their eyes to servere tests. Only too little attention is paid to this matter, and we consequently see many with sight weakened and injured. In using sewing machines, there is considerable difficulty in securing such a light. A lamp placed on the machine interferes greatly with the operations, and is liable to be knocked over. Experience in this matter has led to the invention here illustrated, which is a neat and simple bracket, easily adjusted so as to throw the whole light directly where it is needed. By this arrangement, the light can be directed to any desired point, while the lam]) is securely held in a position which does not interfere with the working of the machine. The cut shows the device sufficiently well without need of description. The lamp used in...

SAN MATEO CO.-ALONG THE COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

SAN MATEO CO.-ALONG THE COAST. [Written tor the PStM.] Editors Pacific lluiial,.—The position of San Mateo County, ranging along the west side of San Francisco Bay, is too well known to need a description; and yet, with its beautiful stretch of sloping lands, dividied by several mountain streams and as many mountain spurs, into pleasant valleys, where homesteads and villas and villages and cultivation have added a multitudinous evidence of wealth and civilization; where the lavish hand of Nature seems to open, as it were, into the lap of luxury, one sees much to note and specify. But we will now call attention to the country along the coast, over the mountains that seem to have been elevated as a special barrier against the bleak winds of the ocean. Along the Ocean Beach there is a chain of open valleys, iuterspersed with sloping hills and sheltered ravines, that reach well into the frowning mountains, and widen into tine fields and rolling hills, all rich in moist and friable soil,...

At Pescadero [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

At Pescadero There is an excellent settlement, and the place, in contrast with Half Moon Bay, is a paradise; and any word but praise would be mis-spoken, when referring to Pescftdero, although there is still chance for improvement there, and they are improving. The farms are fenced, the houses painted, the front yards planted with trees and shrubbery . the homes pleasant and business flourishing. A new wharf is in contemplation, when shipping will be facilitated and the rates of freight lowered. There is now a monopoly that charges exorbitant rates to Han Francisco. The mountains, back, are tilled with excellent timber, and several saw mills am already at work; while the soil is very fertile and productive. The best hotel on the coast is here, kept by a gentleman who knows how to do it, and dot's it too Mr. C. AY. Bwanston. Pebble Beach, near here, is one of the attractions that draws a crowd in "the season." Between Half Moon Bay and Pescadero there are several stations where busin...

HOTEL LIFE IN '49. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

HOTEL LIFE IN '49. We have received from A. L. Bancroft & Co., 7UI Market street, an interesting vol-ume,-the History of San Jose and Surroundings.* The book is pleasantly written, and forms a valuable collection of facts concerning the city of San Jose and the valley of Santa Clara, one of the richest of vales, and one which contains the most ancient Pueblo in the State. A hasty perusal of pages here and there calls to mind many facts forgotten and brings up many reminiscences of similar events. We give an extract concerning hotel life, -which is Hot entirely unknown even now in some parts of our coast. - The principal hotel of San Jose, the City Hotel, was a frame building, one and a half stories high. The table was remarkably good,— equal to many of the present day. Vegetables were the scarce articles. Although very good, the boarding was expensive. The price was Jive dollars in gold per day; that is, board and lodging. The deeping apai'tments were not equal to the. t...
