A Family Scene in Pompeii. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

A Family Scene in Pompeii. Sixty-three years before Christ, a violent earthquake shook the city, ruined many of the buildings and drove almost everybody from the place. The people returned after awhile and went vigorously to work to rebuild the city. Very much had been done, temples had been finished, private residences completed, business and pleasure had resumed full activity. A crowd was assembled in the amphitheater on November 22d, 79, to witness a gladiatorial display,when there occurred a terrible eruption of Vesuvius. A deluge of dust is thrown over the city. The people rush hither and thither, some out of the city, some to seek shelter in the shops, under the theaters and in underground retreats. But there comes a deluge of fiery stones and ashes which fills the streets, breaks down the roofs, enfiames the houses, and when the eruption had ceased, the city was buried. Some attempts were made to recover valuables by excavating, and the Emperor Titus sent senators to sco whet...

Ramie. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

Ramie. Much lias been said of late about certain machines which have been invented in the East, for the preparation of the fible of ramie for the market, which renders it easy and'cheap; but nothing of the kind has yet been seen on this coast. Under these circumstance several parties interest- Ed in the cultivation of the plant, in Alameda county, are said to have combined and sent a gentleman —Mr. Gilbert Lyman —to New Orleans, to personally examine t io machines and look carefully lto the method and success of leir operations, and report to lis correspondents here. Mr. . has sent back the following eport: — I found Lefranc's machine t work on the stalks of Ramie aised in Louisiana. It turns (500 pounds of clean new fibre per day—doing its work with ease and perfection; I send you samples. This is an improvement on the first machine by this maker, and they cost more. The price is $600, if boxed for shipment. It goes by hand or steam power. It has made a revival of intei-est among t...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. The Barron Steel-Making Process. — Of this Dr. Newberry says: "This is a new method, and one perhaps not yet beyond the condition of an experiment, but it has at least sufficed for the production of steel of as fine a quality as has ever been made by .any other means. The whole process consists in exposing malleable iron to the action of gaseous hydro-carbons at a temperature just below that of fusion. Under these circumstances the iron rapidly and regularly absorbs the carbon of the gas, and becomes steel, lhj 'he Barron process, shapes of iron are converted into steel without change of form, and this is the most satisfactory application of it I have seen. For example: tools or implements of any kind may be moulded and cast, these shapes made malleable by the ordinary process, and then, by impregnation, converted into steel, coming out as scissors, knives, axes, or other implements of the very best quality, with no forging whatever. Whether this method is capab...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. MIVART ON THE GENEMS OF SI'ECIES.— This new book is reviewed in Nature for Feb. 2d by Alfred W. Bennett. Wo have space only for a brief notice of this review. Mr. Bennett names the objections brought forward by the author against the theory of Natural Selection, and dwells for a time upon those most fully worked out in the book. He remarks that "hitherto the attention of those naturalists who have concerned themselves with the intricate problems of organic life, has been directed almost exclusively to the animal kingdom;" while he believes that on the contrary more light will be thrown upon them by a consideration of the phenomena of the vegetable kingdom. "Plants have less power of adapting themselves to new conditions; their locality and their food are prescribed for them by the circumstances of their birth; hero therefore we might expect to find the rule of survival of the fittest to reign supreme." Mr. Bennett closes thus: "The present state of the argument ...

SAN DIEGO CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

SAN DIEGO CORRESPONDENCE. Industry Essential to Prosperity Editors Press: —Dr. Temples, in a late alumni address, expresses the following opinion as to what men rank highest, or should: He says " The time has come when he who can do the most for the benefit of his fellow creatures, either in the way of comforting them, in promoting either their improvement or their happiness; whether a laborer with his head and his heart, or a laborer with his hands,will bo reckoned the most important member of society." And again, " it is quite certain that the arts of industry, of the various employments that are put together under the head of labor, all these employments must very soon take the first rank above all others. The man who will be lowest will be the man who is thoroughly idle." Now are not thoseadmirablo sentiments? It is my firm belief that if they were immediately mado a plank in the San Diego platform, it would be the best move toward making this section the most desirable point in...

WHY FARMING DOES NOT PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

WHY FARMING DOES NOT PAY. BY NIBS. [Written for the Press.J "We often hear it remarked among business men in the city, that farming is tremendous hard work, and does not pay; and to anyone who displays any incipient symptoms of ranch fever, a sneer comes forth with the remark that Mr. so and so, gave up a good business, bought himself a ranch, and in two years came back in debt, and as poor as a church mouse. Lei us Illustrate. Three yerrs ago, this coming May, your obedient servant was one of a committee to examine a large tract of land, with the view of purchasing it for homestead purposes. We had enjoyed a splendid week; the country looked magnificent, with fine air, clear, cold water, the 'ground carpeted with flowers, and everything tending to produce an elastic,buoy ant, ever-joyous feeling in the system —such as few, even of the healthiest in the city ever experience. It was the day of our departure, and we were lounging away the intervening time, previous to the departure of...

AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS IN SAN DIEGO. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS IN SAN DIEGO. Messrs. Editors. — Another glorious rain! Enough water has now fallen in this part of the State to insure a crop of all small grains that were sown previous to or immediately after the first that fell this winter, provided it was sown upon ground that was properly prepared. I am ready to admit that gram sown upon ground that was just skimmed over, and lightly harrowed without passing the roller over, thus leaving the ground in half pulverized clods, has dried out and the grain is turning yellow; but all grain sown in such a manner ought to die, and if those that sowed it in that slovenly and shiftless way do not starve to death, it will be good luck simply. They ought to go a little hungry, at all events, until they can learn that it is better, infinitely, to prepare one acre properly, than ten. Thorough Culture. I notice there is one man, of Teutonic persuasion, who will raise a crop, without doubt. He began upon one side of a small field, and d...

SHORT PAPERS ON AGRICULTURE. NO. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

SHORT PAPERS ON AGRICULTURE. NO. 4. [For the I'iikss, by Dr. 3, B. Thomas.] World's Population Needed Large Bread Supplies. It is absolutely certain that Europe, Asia and Africa nourished, each, a large population, both, before and during the flourishing periods of the Greek and Roman dynasties. Moreover, nothing can be more certain, than that the bulk of material supplies, -which entered into the subsistence of these multitudes, was drawn from agricultural sources. On the Spanish Peninsula, whioh at one time was a Roman province; in the regions of Carthage, on the African Coast of the Mediterranean, and at earlier periods in India, China, Babylonia, and the Grecian provinces of Persia, to say nothing of the valley of the Nile, and other regions that were peopled during the earlier ages of the world, the human family literally swarmed, like bees in a clover-field. If we add the fact that the Roman people, with a large population, during the later periods of their history, drew liber...

INFORMATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 4 March 1871

INFORMATION WANTED. A gentleman writes to the publishers of this paper, from New Haven, Conn., as follows: I am studying up the "forage plants of dry climates," and I take the liberty of addressing you in order to make a few inquiries on the subject. I feel more free to trouble you, since I have chosen agriculture for my calling, and may be able to return your favors in kind. A year from now I shall probably be a practical farmer in California, which State I consider my home. To begin with. Prof. Wm. H. Brewer tells me that he procured the seed of the Australian kangaroo grass, and left it for distribution in California. Have you ever heard of any experiments made with it ? To what extent is lucerne, or alfalfa, cultivated as a forage crop? I know that the latter variety is wild on many parts of the coast, but am not aware that any of the fanners liuike a regular crop of it. Will red clover live during the dry season unless it has an unusual source of moisture? I believe that during...

CALIFORNIA. Poppies.—Dr. C. K. Farley, of this city, says the (xilroy Advocate, purposes planting a quarter of an acre of poppies the coming spring, for the purpose of testing the adaptability of our soil and climate to their growth. The experiment will be of great service, and should it prove a success, will be the cause of inducing our farmers to cxiltivate this most remunerative of crops. Flax Culturk. —A correspondent of the Immigrant Union writes as follows from Tonuiles:—From the experiment that I made in Flux culture, I am fully satisfied that the soil and climate of the coast of our State are particularly adapted to the production of the finer fibres of flax, such as is imported into the Belfast (Ireland) markets from France, and which sells there at £1 per stone of 14tt»s., when the best Irish flax will bring but 10s. in the same market. There is, however, one difficulty that presents itself to my mind, viz.: the pulling. Our ground gets so hard that the pulling is a very s...
