IMPORTANCE OF GOOD SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

IMPORTANCE OF GOOD SEED. Mesbbb. Editors —In your issue of Jan. 14 was a paragraph that Mr. S. C. Pattee, of N. H., threshed out two bushels of wheat with the flail, without untying the sheaves, and then hand-picked it; that it was sown in a field with seven bushels of machine threshed; all of the conditions of the two kinds from seeding to harvest precisely alike. The result at harvesting was ,'s3'i per cent, in favor of tiie flail-threshed. Mr. Pattee further stated that in his judgment three pecks of seed, flail-threshed, will produce us many plants M/bur peeks, machine-threshed. Why should this be so? I answer, because 'there is less force used in threshing by the flail than by the machine, and of course less grains OI wheat are destroyed or injured for seed by being crushed, when threshing; besides, in these two bushels, the sheaves were not unbound, hence only the best of the wheat was taken. It may be difficult to convince our wheat growers thai such a slow, and of course exp...

BLOOD'S PATENT CAR SEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

BLOOD'S PATENT CAR SEATS. We of the present generation apparently do not have such stiff backs as our ancestors had. Many of us can remember how our grandmothers sat erect in their chairs, disdaining to rest against the chair-back. Theoretically, we don't know but what they were more correct in the principle than we are, but personally wo always select that chair whose back presents the most comfortable rest. Had these ancestors of ours been as much addicted to riding in railroad cars as we are, we think they might have modified thoir action, and sought to relieve their weary spines. But this last has hitherto been difficult of accomplishment. The straight backed seats become very tiresome, when one is jolted along for a considerable length of time, and how to secure a comfortable position has heretofore defied the most persistent efforts of the traveler. The Chicago Railway Gazette describes these efforts well. It says: An erect sitting posture is quite comfortable at first, but th...

FROM A PIONEER AGRICULTURIST. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

FROM A PIONEER AGRICULTURIST. Sherman Island, July 27th, 1871. Messrs. Editors : —Upon my return home, I opened the jmckage of papers that you so kindly furnished me, and was surprised to find so vast an amount of choice reading matter contained in them, and that of the highest order. What a field of knowledge is spread out before the reader; so full of the right kind of valuable information, that at every turn a feaat is spread before him. Why, it is just the paper that is wanted on this coast; here the farmer can find an abundance of information upon all subjects appertaining to his calling; nothing seems left unsaid that can be of value to him. I am surprised to find such a mine of good paying reading enclosed in its pages. Then the mechanic can also find information that treats upon all branches of the mechanic arts. And, then, what shall I say of such a host of contributors! Why, the articles from Professor Carr are worth a year's subscription. Last evening I read two of them, ...

THE DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

THE DOCTOR'S STORY. NELL VAN [Written tor the Pbsm.] "Conic Doc., give us a story," siiiil Bill Bomers, as we lounged around our camp fire, after our second day's hunt; " give us one of your rip-roarers, now, for I'm in for a good laugh."' "That's you for sartin, Bill; I never yel saw the time when you could not laugh at nothing, all alone by yourself," spoke up Tim, our sturdy friend, who WAS the surest shot of the party. "A story, yes," sung out several voices. "Well, then boys," said the Doctor, slowly winking in the most comfortable manner, "I don't care if I do tell you something about old college days, since you mention it; but on no account let me be interrupted, for its sure to put me out.and I don't like to lose myself, and mix up the past with the present. D'ye understand V" We all agreed to keep quiet as mice and to avoid asking questions till the story was over: so the good Doctor began as follows: "When I was a student, our Professor of Anatomy was one of those solemn-f...

CHILDLESS HOUSEHOLDS. Bequests have been Bent that a growingvice in our land be touohed in this column. It is true that in cities and in many sectiona that have boon longest settled and most highly civilized in our country, big families are the exception, and by no means the rule. It is true that when individuals pass a certain point in physical refinement, like double (lowers, they lose the power of perpetuating themselves. It is also true that by a great many married pairs children are looked uponasaninctunbrance. Hotel and boarding-housekeepers regard them decidedly in thai light. It is easier for man, wife, and dog to secure board from this class of our public than for parents and child to find like accommodation.

FLOWERS AND CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

FLOWERS AND CHILDREN. Flowers and children are of very near kin, and too much of restraint or too much of forcing, or too much of display, ruins their chiefest oharms. I love to associate them together, and to win the little ones to a love of flowers. Some day they tell me that a violet or a tuft of lillies is dead; but on a spring morning they come radiant with the Btory—that the very same violet is blooming sweeter than ever, upon some far away cleft onthe hillside. So you, my child, if the great Master shall lift you from us, shall bloom —as God is just -on some richer, sunnier ground. We talk thus; but if the change really comes, it is more grievous than the blight of a thousand (lowers. She who loved their senrch among the thickets—will never search them. She, whose glad eyes would have opened in pleasant bewilderment upon some bold change of shrubbery or of paths, will inner open them again. She, whose feet would have danced along the new wood-path, carrying joy and merriment ...

A CHAPTER FOR THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

A CHAPTER FOR THE MONTH. [Written for the I'hksh.j February. Our beautiful young Queen of the Occident is now displaying all her charms, and putting forth all her blandishments. There* is no taste but may be gratified, no wish without some shadow of a corresponding form, no whim but may find some tangible image, or representation of itself, in the infinite varieties of divertisements which now surround and enchant us. The country, too, has its charms. Ah, that is a mythio word; and with its utterance, we are off on a tangent from the thronged plaza, leaving behind the gorgeous splendors of Market and Montgomery streets; for even now there is so much that is fresh and beautiful in the country, so much of hope amid the bleakest dreariness of winter, that we could not choose Inii go there, were it only to be free. Never can a drive to the Cliff, or the Ocean Souse, present more attractions than at this season, especially to those who like a little brisk circulation, now and then. But r...

We therefore insert a cut, drawn from a section of skin as seen under a microscope, and clearly delineating the different parts of this complicated and important organ, and showing the necessity of cleanliness in order to the perfect performance of its functions.

Up Country Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

Up Country Letters. A Few Words about Eating Pork. Deab Reader : —I have been thinking of pork to-day. It happened in this wise: The farmer's wife was getting supper, and as the savory (suffocating?) smell of the frying pork met my olfactory nerve for the third time to-day, I asked the abrupt question of the good wife, " Why do you eat so much pork in the country?" The red face and burnt eyes turned toward me as she answered, impressively, with upraised fork, "Well, it is the cheapest, easiest to get, and we like it best?" I sat in my invalid chair and pondered. " Cheapest V" let me see. If they should make Johnny cake of the sour milk and corn they give the pigs; bake the apples, and feed them first hand to the family at every meal; give potato skins and refuse from vegetables to the live stock, which considers such food dainty morsels; feed the table crumbs to the chickens; would it really not be a cheaper way ? As to its being "the easiest to get"— with a butcher's cart passing t...

Domestic Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

Domestic Receipts. Dyspeptic's Biscuit. —Take Graham flour (wheat coarsely ground, without bolting) two quarts; corn meal sifted, one quart; butter, half a oupj sour milk to wet it Up, and saleratus as for biscuit. Roll out and cut with a tea-cup and bake as other biscuit, and when cold they are just the thing for dyspeptics. And if the flour was sifted, none would refuse to eat them. To Remove Grease prom Floors. — To extract grease from old floors, apply a paste of wet wood-ashes, keeping it on several days, or corer the spot with pipe-olay. Grease on wall-papers, caused by persons rubbing their hands against it, is taken ont by applying a cream of pipe-clay and water, leaving it to dry, and scrap ing it off. Stains on wafi-paper may be cut ont carefully with a sharp pen-knife, and pieces to match inserted with paste. When nicely done, it is, if not imperceptible, at least much better than black spots.

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

Mechanical Hints. Pbksebvatiok of Bbovzes, — Bronzes when plaoed out of doors too often become black and dirty, and cease to be ornamental. But it was observed in Berlin that those parts of a bronze Btattie which were much handled by the public retained a good surface, and this led to the conclusion that fat had something to do with it. An experiment Avas therefore tried for some years with four bronzes: one was coated every day with oil, and wiped with a cloth; another was washed every day with water; the third was similarly washed, but was oiled twice a year; ana the fourth was left untouched. The first looked beautiful; the third which had been oiled twice a year, was passable; the second looked dead; and the fourth Avas dull and black. Perhaps public authorities in this country who have charge of statues and other adornments will profit by the experiments here described. Improved Bronze Manufacture.—Mr. J. L. Montefiore, of London, Eng., has recently devised an improved manufact...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

Life Thoughts. A fox should not be on the jury at a goose's trial. If an ass goes a traveling, he'll not como home a horse. A good word for a bad oneis worth much and costs little. Despise not little temptations; for, rightly met, they have often nerved the character for some fiery trial. Maustiali Saxe used to say that in almost every dispute between a horse and a man, the horse was in the right. Run not after blessings, only walk in the commandments of God, and blessings shall run after you. The door between us and heaven cannot be opened if that between us and our fel-low-men is shut. Thebb are two reasons why some people don't mind their own business. One is that they havn't any business, and the sec ond that they have no mind. A little second knowledge, with a great deal of care, goes further on a farm than great knowledge, half applied. Trust not the flatterer. In the days of sunshine, he will give thee pounds of butter; and in the hour of need, deny thee a crumb of bread. A C...

"God Bless You, my Little Fellow!" [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

"God Bless You, my Little Fellow!" A crippled beggar was striving to pick up some old clothes that had been thrown from a window, when a crowd of rude boys gathered about him, mimicking his awkward movements, and hooting at his helplessness and rags. Presently a noble little fellow came Tip, and, pushing through the crowd, helped the poor crippled man to pick up his gifts, and placed them in a bundle. Then, slipping a piece of silver into his hands, he was running away, when a voice far above him said: "Little boy with a straw hat, lookup!" A lady, leaning from an upper window, said earnestly: "God bless you, my little fellow! God will bless you for that." As he walked along, he thought how glad he had made his own heart by doing good. He thought of the poor beggar's grateful look, of the lady's smile, anil her approval] and last and better than all he could almost hear his Heavenly Father whispering: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." Little reader, when you h...

SWAMP LAND TITLES AND LEGISLATION REVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 February 1871

SWAMP LAND TITLES AND LEGISLATION REVIEWED. [Written for the Phess.] The swamp nnd overflowed lands, though not granted to the States until the year 1850, had, for more than half a century, been a fruitful source of discussion in Congress, and numerous schemes for their reclamation by the General Government had been devised, considered and condemned. For twenty years previous to the date of the grant a growing disposition had been manifested by Congress to transfer these lands to the states in which they lie. On the 21st of March, 1826, a resolution was offered in the Senate, by the Hon. Thomas H. Benton, calling for information concerning these lands, with a view to the introduction of a bill granting to the several states the lauds within their limits that were "unfit for cultivation," for reasons enumerated in the resolution, which were, "being wet, or marshy, or subject to inundation from overflowing of the rivers, or covered with standing waters in ponds and lakes;" and when th...
