HOUSEWORK FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

HOUSEWORK FOR GIRLS. It is the law of God that no human being can have a sound, vigorous body, accomplish much and enjoy long life, without good muscles. Though there are a variety of ways by which exercise may be obtained, yet domestic labor is best adapted to develop and strengthen the whole system. Within a few years much interest has ben awakened upon the subject of physical exercise, particularly as connected with schools and seminaries of learning. Besides the outdoor exercise and games, calisthenics and gymnastics have been introduced inside the school-room, and are becoming a part of the regulw exercises in many institutions. This is an improvement in the right direction —and is good as far as it goes- but is entirely inadequate to mccl fully the demands of nature. No kind of exercise for girls is so well calculated as household work to develop all the muscles of the body—to do it in early life, and gradually, under circumstances favorable to health generally. The girl and y...

AROUND THE HEARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

AROUND THE HEARTH. Whatever bo our earthly lot, Wherever we may roam, Still to our hearts the brightest spot Is round the hearth at home; The home where we received our birth, The hearth by which we sat, No other spot on all the earth, Will ever be like that. When Winter, coming in its wrath, Piled high the drifting snow, Safe clustered round the cheerful hearth We catch the firelight glow; Nor brighter seemed the ruddy flames Than did our hearts, the while A loving mother breathed our names, With sweet approving smile. When weary with our eager chase Through many a tangled path, How sweet the dear accustomed place, To talk around the hearth; And still, when by our toil and care We feel ourselves oppressed, Our thoughts forever cluster there, And there alone iiud rest. Bright promise of the rest above, Sweet shelter from the storm. Home hallowed by a mother's love, Hearth by that love made warm; Though widely roared the storm without What recked we of the cold, What place for any fe...

HAPPY THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

HAPPY THOUGHTS. It wasiimnst glorious sunset. The western sky wm mantled with clouds of gorgeous hue, upon which little Mary gazed with thoughtful pleasure. "Papa" she said, "do you know what I think when I see those pretty clouds?" "No! What do you think, Mary?" "I always think they aro God's veils. Doesn't he have beautiful veils, papa, to hide him from us!" True enough, thought I; the clouds which veil Him from our sight now are beautiful, There is a rainbow on them, if we will see it; they shine with mercy and truth, and remind us of the time when the veil shall be parted, and He shall come in the clouds, and every eye shall see him. Mary's happy thought reminds us of another. One morning while our better half was at sea, five years ago, near Aspinwall, she directed the attention of our then four-year-old to a magnificent sunrise, -which elicited from him the following: "Oh! mamma, how beautiful! Is that where all the stars go down and make the sun?"— Ex. Eakly Inflfknces. —Ther...

How to Bone a Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

How to Bone a Turkey. Clean the turkey; remove the intestines; cut off the first joints of the legs; cut down the backbone; very carefully raise the meat from the backbone on each side; unjoint the wings, leaving the small part of the wing bone; raise the meat carefully from the breast, using a sharp knife with a narrow blade. The meat being now detached from the bones, and those unjointed, draw out the frame; only the merry thought will remain, which can be easily cut out. Break up the bones; put them in a stewpan; cover them with cold water, and stew while the turkey is being stuffed with a rich force-meat. First sew up the slit and any holes that may have been accidentally made, making the stitches on the inner side. The force-meat may be of well-sea-soned sausage meat, or veal, minced fine, and seasoned with spices to taste, or with mace only, or use sweet herbs. After it is stuffed, so as to look as before the bones were removed, put it in a large stew-pan, that will just hold ...

The Skin and its Functions. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

The Skin and its Functions. In concluding the article commenced last week, on the the functions of the skin, and referring to the illustration here again given, 6 and 7 are the perspiratory glands and ducts, which ai'e so exceedingly small that, according to calculations of Wilson, the standard authority on the anatomy of the skin, there are twenty-eight hundred to every square inch of the body. The number of square inches in a man of ordinary stature is about twenty-five hundred, so that the number of glands and tubes would be about seven millions, and the length of tubing through the skin about twenty-eight miloH. By this delicate and complicated apparatus are performed some of the most important functions of the system.

Domestic Receipts. Voltaik's Receipt for Dyspepsia.—Take no other nourishment than the yolk of eggs, beat up with the flour of potatoes and water. Sir John Sinclair's Receipt for Dyspepsia.—Beat an egg in a bowl, then add six table spoonsful of cold water mixing the whole well together; then add two table spoonsful of the farina of potatoes, to be mixed thoroughly with the liquor in the bowl; then pour in" as much boiling water as will convert the whole into a jelly,-and mix well.

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

Mechanical Hints. Cement for Fastening Instruments in Handles. —A material for fastening knives or forks into their handles, when they have become loosened by use, is a much-needed article. The best cement for this purpose consists of one pound of colophony (purchasable at the druggists) and eight ounces of sulphur, which are to be melted together and either kept in bars or reduced to powder. One part of the powder is to be mixed with half a quart of iron filings, fine sand, or brick dust, and the cavity of the handle is then to be tilled with this mixture. The stem of the knife or fork is then to be heated and inserted into the cavity; and when cold it will be found fixed in its place with great tenacity. Black Coating FOB Zinc Ornaments. — Dingier's Polytechnic Journal states that M. Neumann has instituted a series of experiments to point out the best materials to produce upon statuary or ornamental subjects made of zinc a pleasing, blackish coating, Avithout impairing the effect ...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

Life Thoughts. The greatest truths are the simplest, and so are the greatest men. The body—that is dust; the soul, 'tis a bud of eternity. He who buys too many superfluities may be obliged to sell his necessaries. Towers are measured by their shadows, and great men by their calumniators. Work is the weapon of honor, and he who lacks the weapon will never triumph. Let thy actions prove that thou art indeed a man in the highest and holiest sense of the exalted name. Sound Advice. —Never owe any man more than you are able to pay, and allow no man to owe you more than you are able to lose. Many person who appear to repent, are like sailors, who throw their goods overboard in a storm, and wish for them in a calm. Necessity is the mother of invention and encouragement the nurse of it; what is brought forth by the one, should be propagated by the other. True piety is not a morose x but a cheerful thing; whilst it makes me joyful it delivers me from frivolity, yet it causes me to be pleasan...

Whining. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

Whining. There is a class of persons in this world, by no means small, whose prominent peculiarity is whining. They whine because they are poor, or if rich, because they have no health to enjoy their riches, they whine because it is too shiny; they whine because its too rainy; they whine because they have "no luck" and others' prosperity exceeds theirs; they whine because some friends have died and they are still living; they whine because they have aches and pains, and have aches and pains because they whine, and they whine; and they whine no one can tell why. Now, we would like to say a word to these whining persons: First. Stop whining that is no use, this everlasting complaining, fretting, scolding, fault-finding and whining. Why you are the most deluded set of creatures that ever lived. Do you not know that it is a well settled principle of physiology and common sense, that these habits are more exhaustive of nervous vitality than almost any other violation of physiological law...

SWAMP LAND TITLES AND LEGISLATION REVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

SWAMP LAND TITLES AND LEGISLATION REVIEWED. (Continued from paße ".) The Sierra Valley Memorial. This memorial lias served as a text for so many Jeremiads, and has been so generally misunderstood, that we cannot well pass it without further notice. The valley lies in the counties Sierra and Plmnas. It was surveyed by the United States in 18(53. Portions of it are claimed as overflowed, and have been sold as such by the State. Some of these sales were made in the latter part of 1869 and the first of 1870. A portion of these are contested by parties now in possession of the land. During the summer of 1870, the United States SurveyorGenenl was called upon to take evidence as to the character of the land in dispute. An order vr&s procured from the Commissioner of the General Land Office in Washington, stopping this investigation. This order was over-ruled by the Secretary of the Interior, as being in violation of law; but the investigation has not yet been made. A memorial f...

NOTES OF TRAVEL IN MONTEREY COUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

NOTES OF TRAVEL IN MONTEREY COUNTY. Mkskks. Editors —At your request I Bend you a few "Notes of Travel" through a portion of Monterey County. The stage road runs from Natividad through Salinas city and along a moderately level lmt narrow valley, varying in width from a quarter to half a mile. For the space of fifteen miles nothing can be semi save tha hills on each side; nor is the traveler permitted to obtain a long view up or down the valley, the trees growing just thick enough to obstruct it, the growth being sycamore, live oak and scrub. The soil, which is pretty fair at the entrance of the valley, becomes lighter and drier the further you go up. The land belongs chiefly to Spanish grant holders who use or lease it for grazing purposes; this at any rate until you come to the dividing ridge about six miles from the crossing place on the Salinas river. Between that point and Monterey there are two or three squatters on government land, just struggling through poor land, hard times...

SANTA CRUZ FARMER'S CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 February 1871

SANTA CRUZ FARMER'S CLUB. Diseases and Poisoning of Sheep. At the meeting of the Santa Orui Farmer's Club, held Jan. '21st, the question of diseases and poisoning of stock formed one of the principle subjects of discussion, it was generally admitted that wild-parsnip will not poison, in the small quantity usually eaten. Mr. Monteith said he had lost cattle, poisoned be eating what is called red-.»oot, or pig-weed. Dr. Anderson said it was not pig-weed, and that he knew of but one plant here that would poison stock, and that was a species of cicuta (cowbano). The President said he had known cattle to bo killed by eating simply corn-meal without any coarser fodder. Mr. Locke read from "Flint's Milch Cows and Dairy Farming," the symptoms <>f milk-fever, and said he believed the cows lost by Messrs. Daken and Monteith (spoken of in last report) died of this disease, or of common fever. He further asserted the probability that during the season of scant pasturage, n...
