Co-operation with the Local Press of the Pacific States. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Co-operation with the Local Press of the Pacific States. Not intending that our paper should interfere with the patronage of the local papers of the interior —which are the head sources of our local newp, and the nurseries of our best literary men —we will make more liberal offers for clubbing the Pkess with publishers of newspapers on this coast than those announced by the most far-reaching proprietors of eastern journals. Ours will be the most populor paper that publishers on this coast can club wi,th their own, and subscribers can receive it at once, and in case of change of residence, can quickly inform us of their new address, and be sure of getting every number of the paper promptly. Publishers in the interior should send for our special rates for clubs. We will not only "live and let live," but are disposed to "live and help live."

ALWAYS TAKE A KISS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

ALWAYS TAKE A KISS. There's a jolly Saxon proverb Which is pretty much like this, That a man is half in heaven When he has a woman's kiss; But there's danger in delaying And the sweetness may forsake it; So I tell you, bashful lover, If you want a kiss, why, take it. Never let another fellow Steal a march on you in this; Never let a laughing maiden See you spoiling for a kiss; There's a royal way to kissing, And the jolly ones who take it {lave a motto that is winning - If you want a kiss—why—take it! Any fool may face a cannon, Anybody wear a crown, But a man must win a woman If he'd have her for his own; Would you have a golden apple, You must find the tree and shake it; If the thing is worth the having. And you want a kiss, why, take it. Who would burn upon a desert, With a forest smiling by? Who would give his sunny summer For a bleak and wintry sky? Oh! I tell you there is magic, And youcannot, cannot break it; For the sweetest part in loving Is to want a kiss, and take it!

WAS IT A DREAM? [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

WAS IT A DREAM? A New Year's Story for Children, Old and Young. NELL VAN [Written for the Puekh ] It was the last night of the year, and we ■were all at grandfather's spending the holidays, as was our custom, and had assembled around the blazing lire, after our games were over, to chat together and tell stories before going to rest. On either side of the wide fireplace sat grandfather and grandmother in their old-fashioned arm-chairs, while Uncle Ned, who sat in our midst, was amusing the youngsters with tales of early California life. "Now my lads," said grandfather, during a pause, "you shall have my story, and Avhen it is done, tell me, was it a dream '? "It was a bitter cold winter's night—that New Year's eve, long ago, when your grandmother and I, with our six boys and girls gathered around our fireside, talking over the past and forming new resolutions and plans for the future. Robert was about entering college, as he may remember, and was full of bright anticipations. He can ...

Beauty an Evidence of Perfection. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Beauty an Evidence of Perfection. Bounty, whether in plants and animals, or in men and women, is the grand external sign of goodneu of organization anil integrity of function; and the highest possible beauty can indicate nothing less than perfection in these particulars. In the proportion, therefore, that we approach physical perfection, we become beautiful; '•the idea of beauty" being, as the learned Dr. Pritohard truly says "synonymous with health, and a perfect organization." Physical (or health) and beauty will always be found to bear a strict relation to each other, the latter being everywhere the sign or symbol of the former. A lack of beauty in any member or system of the body indicates a* lack of goodness or health in that member or system. A deformity of limbs shows clearly enough a want of goodness in the locomotive system ; a bad complexion not less certainly indicates something wrong in the vital system; and a malformation of the brain, made manifest by the shape of the ...

Don't Cultivate the Mind at the Expense of the Body. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Don't Cultivate the Mind at the Expense of the Body. The distinguished Dr. Bpnrsheim says: "Experience hus demonstrated that of any number of children of equal intellectual power, those who receive no particular care in childhood, and who do not learn to read and write until the constitution begins to be consolidated, but who enjoy the benefit of a good physical education, very soon surpass in their studies those who commence earlier, and read numerous books when very young. The mind ought never to be cultivated at the expense of the body; and physical education ought to precede that of the intellect, and then proceed simultaneously with it, without cultivating one faculty to the neglect of others; for health is the base, and instruction the ornament of education." Tkittiis are at first clouds, then rain, then harvests and food. The philosophy of one century is the common sense of the next. Men are called fools, in one age, for not knowing what they were called fools for averring in...

THE BRIGHT NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

THE BRIGHT NEW YEAR. Janus, of old, is made immortal, through the name of his fair bride, the Queen Month, to whose merry Court cometh ever, with its young voice of joy and love, the bright New Year. We in the city are rejoicing with holidays, and there are sounds of gladness wherever young children gather round a happy fire-side, from which Comfort and Love are not banished, by the hard hand of Necessity, that knoweth no changes, save those of labor, and want and pain. Daily and nightly the city exhibits scenes, that almost rival the marvelous legends of Fairy Land. Let us not forget in our own rejoicings, the unfortunate ones, who stand amid the cruel storm, crying for shelter, or sit by the way-side, with mute gestures imploring bread. But may all who rejoice in good gifts, give also to such as can not repay again, except in the blessing of the poor. The good deed in its simplest form, shall not fall to the ground inert; but it shall spring up, and bear blessings, a thousand fold...

Sunshine. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Sunshine. Sunshine is of almost as much importance in gaining or retaining health as good air. Who does not know how much more a bright and sunny day gladdens and invigorates both the strong and the weak than one overcast with clouds ? Let the bright sun shine into your dwellings; draw the curtains and swing back the blinds that the sun may dry up the dampness which feeds the mould and fungus that breeds disease; that drives the rose tint from the face and lips. Let the glorious sunshine have free access to every part of your house where it is possible for it to enter. It will bring light and life, and sometimes imparts vigor when all other means fail. The nations of antiquity seem to have understood and appreciated the blessings of sunlight fur more than we moderns do. The most refined of those nations generally held their public meetings in the open air. Theil schools were for the most part in groves or in porticoes —colonades, supported Upon lofty pillars, beneath which the air a...

A New Bread Fruit Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

A New Bread Fruit Tree. Dr. Steven, of New York, writes as fellows of a Bread Fruit tree which is a native of Brazil, and largely employed by them for food. The Dr. writes:—"The plant resembles very closely our sassafras; it has the same rough bark and the same palmate leaf. The food is derived from the root, and it probably produces a larger amount of food from a given area of ground than any other plant. A yield of 3,000, 4,000 or 5,000 bushels to the acre is not uncommon, and the cultivation is of the roughest kind. In fact, it has no cultivation, except planting. The universal South American knife, the machete, is used to exit a hole in the sod, the plant is inserted, and left to take its chance. It is sure to take its chance however. It will root out all other plants, and connot itself be destroyed. The root is grated in mills, the milk flows away, and the pulp is dried for food. The milk is wasted by the hogshead. I have seen a river white with it for a long distance below the...

The Way the Money Goes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

The Way the Money Goes. New York city spends $8,500 per day for bread, and $10,000 a day for cigars. The United States invests $40,000,000 annually in the cigar trade alone, and $(500,000,000 annually for tobacco in other forms, including expense of producing. The annual expense to the human family is not less, yearly, than #1.000,000,000. Liquor is sold in the United States amounting, in the year, to $<i 00,000,000, one-fifth the total amount of the National debt; or, according to Commissioner Wells, the total amount disposed of per annum is $1,000,000,000, enough to pay the debt in three years. It is time our wives, mothers and sisters, were alive to the importance of their influence upon this subject, and felt it their sacred duty to use every means in their power to keep this giant monster from ruining, not only the fortunes of many, but the souls and bodies of our best men and women! Only think of the vast amount of money expended in the actual degradation of mankind...

Household Receipts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Household Receipts. Corn Bread.—An Original Receipt.— To make corn bread equally well without as with eggs was discovered by a California miner who recently communicated the method to us. Our friend occupied a "camp" and of course did his own "cooking." On one occasion finding himself short of meal for his corn bread, he eked it out by mixing therewith a quantity of cold "mush" which had been set aside from a previous meal. His astonishment was great at perceiving the decided improvement the previously cooked meal produced on his "corn bread." He repeated the experiment with the same result, and has since communicated the discovery to many, all of whom are unanimous in pronouncing cooked meal as good as eggs to make corn bread light. Mix liberally, say one third. Good Rolls. —The famous Parker House rolls ai-e said to be made in the following described manner: Make a hole in two quarts of flour, and pour in one pint of curd milk that has been boiled, with a cup of butter melted in i...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Mechanical Hints. To Polish Marble, etc. —Marble of any kind, alabaster, any hard stone, or glass may be repolished by rubbing it with a linen cloth dressed With oxide of tin (sold under the name of putty powder). For this purpose a couple or more folds of line should be fastened tight over a piece of wood, mat or otherwise, according to the form of the stone. To repolish a mantelpiece it should be first perfectly cleaned. This is best done by making a paste of lime, soda and water, well wetting the marble, and applying the paste. Then let it remain for a day or so, keeping it moist during the interval. When this paste has been removed the polishing may begin. Chips in the marble should be rubbed out first with emery and water. At every stage of polishing the linen and putty powder must be kept constantly wet. Glass, such as jewelers' show-counter cases, which become scratched, may be polished in the same way. — Scientific American. To Bend Mahogony or Walnut Moulding.—Take two piec...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Life Thoughts. When lovers quarrel the only presents not returned are kisses. The road to ruin is always kept in good repair, and the traveler pays the expenses of it. He that is good will become better, and he that is bad, worse; for virtue, vice and time, never stop. Few take care to live well, but many to live long; though it is in everybody's power to do the former. Reading, says Lord Bacon, makes a full man; conversation a ready man; writing an exact man. Reflect before you act, but, when the time for action arrives, stop thinking. No snow falls lighter than the snow of age; none heavier, for it never melts. Our prayers and God's mercy are like two buckets in a well—when the one ascends, the other decends. A Good Thought Well Spoken.—No young woman, says a contemporary, over looks so well to a sensible man as when dressed in plain, neat, modest attire, with but little ornament about her person. She looks then as though she had worth in herself, and needed no artificial rigging ...

A Sentiment from the "Plow." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

A Sentiment from the "Plow." San Jose, Dec. 15th, 1870. Messrs. Dewey & Co.— Gents : I cannot refrain fiom an expressienof satisfaction at the prospect of at last getting a first-class agricultural newspaper in this State. Had the "sample number," now before me, emanated from'an unknown source, I might have felt some doubt as to the success of the enterprise ; but, being a constant reader of the Scientific Press, I feel well assured that the same talent and enterprise exhibited in that journal will also be carried into your new enterprise, and will prove a guarantee of Us success also. Moreover, a long and intimate acquaintance with your firm, as business managers and patent agents, still further increases my confidence in the ability that leads and the stability that will secure success for your new paper, the Pacific Rural Press. The need of such a paper on this coast has long been felt; and the present time, for many reasons, appears to be a most opportune one for sta...

Seasonable Articles. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

Seasonable Articles. I. N. HOAG, Editor Sacramento Under this head we shall present in each number of the Rural, Avell considered original articles and suggestions upon agricultural and horticultural subjects. The particular subjects will be chosen with reference to their special adaptation to the seasons with a view to inducing immediate trials or tests of the practicability and correctness of the suggestions advanced, on the part of our agricultural readers. Owing to the peculiarities of the soils and climates of the Pacific coast, agricultural and horticultural operations are found to require very different management hero from that practiced in most other countries. Hence the lessons inculcated by eastern and foreign journals on agriculture and horticulture, however well timed and valuable in the countries where they are published, are almost wholly inapplicable and valueless here, both as to time and substance. We shall endeavor to bear these facts continually in mind and prese...

SILK CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

SILK CULTURE. "Wo are almost daily in receipt of inquiries in regard to this industry in California. Many of these inquiries are from our own citizens who contemplate entering into the business, and many from people in the Eastern States, who are thinking of coming to this state for the same purpose. The inquiries cover all the practical operations of the business from the nature of the soil to be chosen for the cultivation of the mulberry, to the completion of the cocoons and making the eggs for the propagation of the worms. The inquiries being so general, and coming from so many quarters, we conclude that our opinions as stated in this paper last week—that the Franco-German war is most favorable to the successful and profitable prosecution of the industry in the United States, and especially in California, are generally concurred in, and that people are about to engage in it very generally. Being generally ignorant of the details of the business they are earnestly seeking the nece...

MELONS VS. BEETS FOR SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

MELONS VS. BEETS FOR SUGAR. The following very interesting and instructive article from W. Wadsworth, we take from the Sacramento Union of Dec. 31st:— The lagan from cane, maple, beets, parsnips, the sweet-gourd and all the varieties of melons, when manufactured perfectly pure, are chemically identical. In Hungary and Italy there are numerous large establishments for the manufacture of melon sugar. I have seen them. The cost of melon sugar as compared with beet BUgar, is in favor of the melon. Every German or French authority on the culture of beets for sugar, admits the necessity of at least two, and recommends three, deep and thorough plowings of the land to prop erly tit it for the culture of beets. With melons it is quite otherwise. To secure the largest yield and best beets, the seed should be planted in roAvs two feet a]->art and from eight to ten inches apart in the row. Melons are usually planted in hills, six to eight feet apart, but they are better planted in ro...

One of our Parks. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 7 January 1871

One of our Parks. Woodward's Gardens, one of the first places shown to travelers visiting our city, have been called by some the " Central Park of the Pacific." Whatever name may be given to these grounds, they certainly deserve and have received the highest praise and admiration, and we propose giving a brief description of their prominent points for the benefit of those of our readers who have not been able to visit them in person. Mr. R. B. Woodward, one of the wealthiest and most liberal of our citizens, laid out these gardens in 1860 as private grounds around his residence. Possessed of a refined taste, and of adequate means to gratify this taste, he spared no expense in beautifying them. They are provided with choice plants, both foreign and native, a museum and several conservatories were built, and a trip to Europe was taken in 18G1 by the proprietor with the special view of supplying these last. In selecting works of art, he was aided by Bierstadt and Virgil Williams, both ...
