Good Land and Sure Crops. There has been steady and tolerably rapid advancement made in the growth of a majority of the towns in Colusa, Butte, Tehama and Shasta counties. Especially is this so in the agricultural districts where the land produces at least fair crops in all seasons—wet or dry—as does the land on the READING KANCH. Those looking for homes in California where diversified farming will pay every year; where wood and water are plenty and easy to be obtained, and other desirable advantages are to be had, should address the proprietor of the Reading Ranch. Some 14,000 out of 26,000 acres of the grant remain for sale at comparatively low rates, in quantities to suit purchasers, on easy terms. Prices range from $5 to $30 per acre. The tract is between two and three miles wide, with the Northern Division of the C. P. R. R. passing centrally through its entire length. Send postage stamp for map and further information, U EDWARD FRISBIE, the proprietor of Reading Ranch, Anderso...

The Art of Preserving Health. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

The Art of Preserving Health. Clothing is important to protect the body from heat and cold. Different qualities ive suited to different seasons and climates, and are chiefly connected with the relations of fabrics to heat and moisture. In cold weather the object is to prevent the loss of heat from the body, by conduction and evaporation; in warm weather the aim is to promote it. Hence we must wear non-conduc-tors and slow absorbers in winter, and free conductors and ready absorbers in summer. These objects must be neoured iv the first place, and with this in view the fabrics must be selected. As far as consistent, clothing should be light, durable, and readily cleaused. Linen fabric is a gooi conductor, aud hence favors the escape ot animal heat. It also rapidly absorbs moisture from the surface of the body, and gives it off again to the external air by evaporation. This process produces rapid oooling even in hot aeather. But linen should never be used next to the skin, under any ci...

Baby Has Gone to School. The baby Las rone to school; ab. me ! Wbs.t will th* mother do, With never a call to button or pin, Or tie a little shoe? How can she ke*p herself busy all day With the little hinderißg thing away? Another ba-kst to till with lunch. Another " good-bye " to say, And the mother standa at tbe donr to see Her baby march away, And turns with a sigh tbat is half rtiief And half a something akii* to grief. Suethinksof a possible future morn, When the children, one by one Will go from their home put in the world To battle with life alone. And not even the baby left to cheer The desolate home of that future year. She picks up garments here and there, Thrown down in careless haste, And tries to think how it would seem If nothing were displaced. If the house were always as still as this. How could she baar the loneliness ?

Pranks With the Mouth. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

Pranks With the Mouth. Tbe mouth is Dot to be played pranks with, but is often so. The heedless practice of putting small articles in tho mouth, either for the purpose of holding them for a few moments or for playiug some trick, has frequently been attended with serious consequences. Yet the practice is common, especially among young women, who may be seen holding pins between their teeth while dressing. Medical attendants in hospitals have frequent cause to find fault with female patients of a humble rank for put«ins pins in their mouth when they have occasion to remove any part of their dress. Children of both sexes seem almost to have an instinctive fancy to put playthings'in their mouth, and sometimes, therefore, give no end of trouble to parents and nurses. Notwithstanding every precaution, distressiug acci dents occur. A few years ago a boy swallowed a small piece of brass chain, with which he had been amusing himself by putting it into his mouth. The bit of chain lodged in th...

The Four Friends. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

The Four Friends. " Lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not di vided." This sentiment, from David's lament over Saul and Jonathan, might have been appropriately inscribed on the granite cross which marks four graves in Virginia. The occasion of the monument is thus told: In 1853 four gentlemen eutered their sons at a boarding-school atGokesbury, S. C. They had been for years intimate friends and clergymen in the Methodist church. These boys remained at this school, roommates and classmates, for two years, and entered Wofford College, standing relatively first, second, third and fourth in a large class. They remained at the institution four years, were roommates all the time, graduating relatively first, second, third and fourth. They then entered a law ©fiioe at Spartanburg, and studied law under the same chancellor. The war broke out, and at the call for troops they all entered Jenkins' rifle regiment from South Carolina, and were messmates in the same ...

The Little "Midshipmite." [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

The Little "Midshipmite." Some kindly sympathy and sorrow I are called forth by the death of a little lad who has just eaded a brief but promising career. His service was that of pleasure; he was ciever beyond his years; he received a full measure of the applause that ambitiou hopes for only after a long-tried and arduous apprenticeship; the theater was his nursery and the mimio ship en whioh he served a holiday playground. Chance or inclination, possibly the signs of precocious intellect, or some connection with the we : id of amusement in its countless brauttiies, gave young Benedict Tacagni the welcome opportunity of joining the Lilliputian crew on board "H. M. S. Pinafore." He was only aged 6 years and 7 months, and scarcely escaped from his mother's arms, but, possessing a rare fund •of that imitative faculty which is so amuseing in little children, and easily accepting instruction, he was assigned the part of the Midshipmtte in tha famous comic opera that has only made way for...

An Amazon. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

An Amazon. Mrs. Esther Yates, a woman of extroardinary strength, recently died at Plattekill, N. Y. She was known as "The Amazon of the Plattekill," and for sundry good reasons. Physically, she was built more like a man than a woman. Her shoulders were broard and her muscles well formed. Daring the winter, Mrs. Yates out cordwood all day long on the mountain, and in the language of a countryman, *'It took a purty good man to swing an axe alongside of her." On several occasions she out as many as three cords of wood in one day, in addition to performing the household duties iv her home after sunset. Ia the summer she cat grain for the farmers, and was rated as "a good hand." She cultivated a small garden of her own, selling her products iv Newburg. She made weekly trips to that city, carrying her truok in two large baskets. Farmers going to town to ship I heir hay on the barge line would offer her a ride, and her invariable reply was: "I am in a hurry. Take you all day to get there."...

Col. Synge's Story. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

Col. Synge's Story. Col. Synge returned to Salonica in her Majesty's ship Condor, looking very little the worse after his five weeks' captivity. Thanks to his robust constitution, the mental anxiety which he must have undergone when at the mercy of a band of ruffians, and uncertain of his fate from day to day, has not left any bad effect upon Col. Synge. We give a few particulars of his captivity, gathered from his personal narrative. The brigand band, whioh consisted of about forty, laid siege to his house in a most systematic manner. They first gave meat to the dogs to keep them quiet. They then kept up an incessant are, aiming at the lower panes of the windows. Col. Synge was sitting in an arm-chair as he heard the bullets falling about him. He had just returned from his journey to Djuma, and at the moment had not any guns out, having unmounted and locked them in their oases previous to his departure. He, however, soon possessed himself of one, by breaking open the case and retur...

A Large Dog-House. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

A Large Dog-House. Lord larborough.who bas a splendid estate in tbe Isle of Wight, like most i of the noblemen in England, keeps a great number of horses and dogs, aud a friend of mine paid a visit to his foxhounds —eighty in number. They all live in one house, or "kennel," and sleep in one bed. A good big one it must be. Over the bad hangs a bell, and if the keeper who lives near by, hears any snarling or quarreling, or cross words, he just rings tho bell; and down they lie, still as mice, for they know the whip will very soon follow the bell, and so they very wisely hush up their little disputes and go to sleep. All this big family of dogs have nameH, and when the keeper callrt the roll, they each walk out as quickly and orderly as boys and girls in school. Think of what a lot of food is needed for their breakfast and sapper. In their store room you will see two or three ( quarters of horse be?f hanging, and great bins or sacks of nice oatmeal aud barley meal. For their soup an ol...

Shepherd Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

Shepherd Dogs. The intelligence and natural instinct of these valuable animals cannot be too highly praised, and it is a matter of pleasure to all lovers of fine stock to see the rapidity with which they are being introduced into our country. No farmer should be without one; they are watchful, docile, and indispensable, especially in wild and mountainous localities, to the successful raising of sheep. So strong are their instincts for the care of stock, it is a matter of little trouble to train them, and once they have learned what is required of them they are faithful and untiring in the performance of their duties. In Europe, when large flocks of sheep are under the care of but one shepherd, with the aid of these dogs the sheep are allowed to roam over a vast territory, oftentimes in such rough places as to render man's attempts to follow them impossible. The dogs' sagacity is such that they at once become familiar with the flock, and not only do they keep them closely herded, but...

Bone Disease in Milch Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

Bone Disease in Milch Cows. For more than half a century there have been occasional outbreaks of a peculiar disease in New England, mostly affecting milch cows, and commonly known as bone-ail or stiff joint lameness. Heretofore the trouble has been chiefly confined to hill sections, but seems now to be approaching the valleys. This disease technically called Cachexia ossifraga, is not confined to the stifle joiut, frequently affecting the hip and other joints also. In one case where the hip joint was affected, examamination showed that the articular. surface of the head of the tibia or shank-bone had been worn through by its.friction with the femur, or thigh bone, by the absorption of the floating cartilage between the ends of the boues. Similar conditions were noticed in other instances. As it is believed this cartilage can hot be regenerated, it was at first a questian whether the disease was onrable. Before investigation, its cause was attribute I to the absence of phosphatio mat...

Long-Wooled Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

Long-Wooled Sheep. A farmer son da to tlie National Stock Journal his experience with long- wooled sheep. It is as foiiowa: "Iv 1874 J. purohased four ewes and one buck from a Kentucky breeder. They were long wooled sheep and called Ootawolds. I had at the same time a lot of forty grade sheep—large aud pretty weU crossed up in the so-called long-wools. My buck sheared ten ahd twelve pounds of wool and weighed over 2i)J pounds. My ewes sheared about ten pound* and weighed, probably, 175 pounds. In 1875 my brother bought a car-load ol large very tine lambs, in Buffalo, and we dividid the lor, each taking half. In 1876 I had a nice lot ef lambs and -beared a good clip of wool. My sheep were kept ou a good i lue-grass pasture and had access to running water and shade. As Boon, however, as I fqs seventy-five or eighty sheep in a flock, they became unhealthy. They would cough aud discharge yellow matter at the nose, get poor, aud finally, after lingering for months, died. The disease appe...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 27 May 1880

The Santa Cruz railroad horror is but another link in the bloody chain of accidents with which our State has been treated during the past few years. So accustomed has the public mmd become to the almost weekly recurrence of the fearful and often avoidable slaughters of human beings, that they are now viewed almost with indifference, by all except those especially interested in the victims. Within two months nearly twenty persons Were blown to death in a powder mill in this County, yet already the event is forgotten by the public and no effort is being made to prevent a recurraace of the horror at any time, after the rebuilding of the works. Surely human life, unless it be that of own kin, is becoming very cheap. By the provisions of the new County Government bill, the Supervisor Dis-tricts-of counties are formed according to population, instead of extent of territory. The city ot Oakland, therefore, with its city government, which reievss the Oakland members of the Board, of full ha...
