Health. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

Health. Dr. Trail, a writer of note upon medical subjects, describes health as " the natural play of all the functions;" and as none of the medical profession have given us any thing better, I shall accept it as a correct definition, and endeavor to show my readers how inevitably we are bringing premature death upon ourselves and ruin to the nation through ignorance of the laws of health. We ai-e a nation of invalids; not an individual in perfect health can be found; scarce any in the moderate enjoyment of that greatest of God's blessings ! The rule is sickness, and health is the exception, among our women and children in particular. Can this condition continue and not prow worse? And if worse, does not annihilation of the race follow sooner or later ? Yet we are intelligent and liberal, spending amiiialy millions of dollars in schools and reading matter; endowing scores of medical colleges for the education of our young men (and women too now) and not a town or village but can boas...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

Mechanical Hints. How to Bobbs Holes in Glass. —Any hard steel tool will cut glass with great facility when kept freely wet with camphor dissolved in turpentine. A drill-bow may be used or even the hand alone. A hole bored may be readily enlarged by a round tile. The ragged edges of glass vessels may also be thus easily smoothed by a flat file. Flat window glass can readily be sawed by a watch spring saw by aid of this solution. In short, the most brittle glass can be wrought almost as easily as brass by the use of cutting tools kept constantly nioist with camphorized oil of turpentine. Parchment Papsb. —Paper can bo readily converted into vegetable parchment by immersing it for a few moments in a mixture of two volumes of sulphuric acid and one of water. The acid should be washed off the paper by immersing and slightly agitating it in a large quantity of cold water. The last trace of acid may be removed by finally immersing the paper in water to which a small quantity of ammonia ha...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

Life Thoughts. It is far better to suffer than to lose the power of suffering. Experience is the father, and memory the mother of wisdom. Censure is the tax a man pays to the public for being eminent. It is easy to look down on others; to look down on ourselves is the difficulty. We cannot conquer fate and necessity, yet we can yield to them in such a manner as to be greater than if we could. He who pleases himself without injuring his neighbor, is quite as likely tojjleasehalf the world as he who vainly tries to please the whole world. When fame is regarded as the end, and merit as only the means, men are apt to dispense with the later, if the former can be had without it. Base all your actions upon a principle of right; preserve your integrity of character, and in doing this, never reckon the cost. It is with our thoughts as with our flowers —those that are simple in expression carry their seed with them; those that aro double, charm the mind but ])i'oduce nothing. Always laugh wh...

Old Age Without Religion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

Old Age Without Religion. Alas! for him who grows old without growing wise, anil to whom the future world does not set open her gates when he is excluded by the present. The Lord deals so graciously with us in the decline of life that it is a shame to turn a deaf ear to the lessons which He gives. The eye becomes dim, the ear dull, the tongue falters, the feet totter, all the senses refuse to do their office, and from every side resounds the call: ''Set thine house in order, for the term of thy pilgrimage is at hand." The playmates of youth, the fellow-laborers of manhood, dio away and take the road before us. Old age is like some quiet chamber, in which, disconnected from the world, we can prepare in silence for the world that is unseen.— Tholuck. Honest Independence.—A free must be rooted in the soil before it can bear flowers and fruit. A man must learn to stand upright upon his own feet, to respect himself, to be independent of charity or accident. It is on this basis only that ...

LETTER FROM SAN DIEGO. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

LETTER FROM SAN DIEGO. How to Commence Farming with Small Means— The Sugar Beet and its Manufacture. Editors Press:—Will you please permit one who has had experience in agricultural matters upon this coast, ranging over twenty-three years of time, and in nearly all the distance between Chili and Puget Sound, to offer a few suggestions in answer to the query: "Is there any opening for poor, but willing and intelligent men with little or no money to make a start, and a living at farming ?" There are in these southern counties, and it is presumed elsewhere, localities where land can be hod at a nominal price—either buying or renting —where a person who is willing to live simply, can begin life as a farmer; or, as part farmer and part manufacturer; and with a very small amount of money. By living plain,—that is, doing with little or no meat, — (do not get alarmed) for the first year or so, the cost of iving can be kept at less than half what is asked for board at the lowest-priced board...

THE YOUNG OF OYSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 28 January 1871

THE YOUNG OF OYSTERS. EniTons Press:—l noticed in one of your late numbers that you assert that by opening an oyster and examining the liquor retained in the shell with a microscope, you can see many small oysters, covered with shells, swimming nimbly about. Well, you please inform your careful readers how they get there, and when they are set free by their mothers to take care of themselves; and if there are male and female oysters; if so, how do they multiply. This is* a very interesting subject, and one but little understood. J. B. Han Francisco, Jan., 1871. The oyster was formerly considered hermaphordite; but it is now known that it is of separate sexes—the females largely predominating in numbers. They are ovovivaparous- they produce a living foetus, by exoluding it from an egg covering. The eggs are expelled in a white, viscid fluid, called "spats" (common to all shell fish). This substance adheres to marine bodies and to the parent shells; by thus accumulating one upon anoth...
