SOMETIME. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

SOMETIME. Life does not find completeness here, We grasp at things too far away, And many a hope grown doubly dear, Just at its brightest droops away. We love, and lose- we strive, and fall— We dream, and dreams are idle things; The tree falls soonest in the gale, To which some vine for safety clings. 0 voices sad! O weary hands! O eyes more sweet than pansies are, Somewhere, I think, in Bummer lands, Life lifts for you its morning star! Sometime for those who, trusting, wait, Shall the white flowers of gladness blow, Ami time will fully compensate, The pain and loss that now we know.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

What is a Kindekgakten V—For those, who do not know what the word Kindergarten implies. I will say Kindergarten means a garden for children, where the children are considered as the various plants, and the teacher as the gardener; who has to be intimately acquainted with their nature and needs, in order to supply all the necessary conditions of soil, moisture, sunny-side or shade, that is necessary to promote their healthy growth and fruitage. At the same time Froebel wanted a garden connected with every school, so that the children should be in constant contact with nature, and be able to watch her processes, and learn to take care of plants, and also animals; which duty, lovingly performed in early childhood, prepares the child, later in life, to take caro of those dependent on him. The Approach of Sleep.—lt is a delicious moment, certainly, that of being well nestled in bed, and feeling that you shall drop gently to sleep. The good is to come —not past, the limbs have been just t...

Fretting, a Habit. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Fretting, a Habit. " Fretting," says the Herald of Health, " is one of the silliest, most unnecessary, unchristian, unreasonable, unprofitable, undignified, unpleasant and useless things in the world. It never does any good; but always does harm to the one that frets, if no one else. Fretting is a habit, and may either be inherited or acquired." The effects of fretting are quite as serious upon the individual who frets, as upon those with whom he comes in contact. It cramps and belittles the mind, and diseases the body of the unfortunate possessor of the habit; and however pleasant other surroundings may be, it brings disquiet anil unhappiness into every household where it finds admittance. Although it often intrudes into the more public walks of life, its most sure and safe retreat is within the precincts of the household. There it works its direst effects, producing dyspepsia, nervousness and unnumbered forms of diseases upon the individual, and brings unhappiness, discomfort and ...

Dressing Frogs for Food. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Dressing Frogs for Food. A Letter from Florence Italy, contains the following:—This morning I wandered through the market, and, turning a corner, came suddenly upon a frog merchant, who was busy preparing and selling the little jumpers. On a table was a large bag, into which a boy put his hand and took out a number of live frogs; with a pair of scissors he decapitated them in rajml succession, at the same time cutting the skin of the back open, and then threw them into a large earthen dish which contained, perhaps a hundred more in the same state. Although headless, they were all swiming about and jumping in the liveliest manner. After soaking for a short time, they are taken out and dexterously skinned and then thrown into a tub of clear water. Even after being beheaded and skinned, some of them managed to swim around in the tub, and always tried to climb up the sides. They are sold by weight, and are cleaned, the feet cut oft", and are ready for the purchaser, who no doubt enjoys ...

Cold Meats. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Cold Meats. The greatest desideratum of a second-hand dish, so to speak, is that it should not taste as such. Nothing is more abominable than the bad taste which is so prominent in the attempts at warming up cold meat, which your plain cook is pleased to call minced veal, hashed mutton, etc. The only means to avoid that taste is to remove carefully from the cold meat you are going to use, every part that has seen the fire as well as gristle and fat. Let every slice be carefully trimmed, and let them all be as near as possible similar in size and shape; then make your hash, and, even if you are not an expert at combining sauces and spices, at any rate it will not have a warmed up taste. The following are various formulas for warming up mutton and others meats: Cut an onion in slices and fry it in butter till it assumes a deep brown color, then put in a table-spoonful of flour, and when it is well amalgamated with butter, add a little less than half a pint of stock broth, or even watt...

Forks and Sawmills. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Forks and Sawmills. A curious juxtaposition, the reader will say; but we have introduced them here as illustrative of the popular clamor which almost always attended the introduction of improvements and inventions, in the ordinary ways of labor and life, when inventions tirst began to find their way into the industries and amenities of society. Forks were first known in Italy toward the end of the fifteenth century; but it was a hundred years before they came into use in France, and nearly a hundred more before they had traveled as far northward as Scotland.Their introduction into England was at first ridiculed as a piece of affectation and effeminacy. In one of Beaumont and Fletcher's plays, "your fork-carving traveler" is spoken of with great contempt, and Ben Johnson, also joined in the laugh against them. The first man who appeared with an umbrella in the streets of London drew down upon himself a pelting shower of mud and stones, which was worse than the rain against which he h...

Mechanical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Mechanical Hints. White Shellac, -when new, will very readily dissolve in the usual solvents, but on exposure to the air it is gradually changed in its character, and it seems almost impossible to dissolve it; in such cases it should be put away in the bottle or jar in a warm place, and in time it will thoroughly dissolve. Tempering Old Files for Chisels. — Heat the chisel gradually to a cherry red heat, then dip in water about one inch of the chisel end till it comes to a black heat, then rub with a rubber till you see a blue color, then quench it directly. This is the way blacksmiths do them. Another Way.— Grind out the cuttings on one side, and you will have a bi'ight surface, then damp the surface with a little oil; then lay the file on a piece of red-hot iron, bright side upwards. In about a minute you will see the bright surface turning yellow; and when the yellow has deepened to about the color of straw, plunge in cold water. Tools in the Workshop.—Of all tools in the worksho...

Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Life Thoughts. The crown of all real manliness, of all Christian manliness, is purity. "Grandeur of character," says Channing,lies wholly in force of soul. To be very attractive to all sorts of different people, one must have great readiness of sympathy. Heaven-gates are not so highly arched as Princess' palaces; they that enter there must go on their knees. Posterity is able to be impartial, and restores the too great admiration of contemporaries to the proper degree. Nature has written a letter of credit upon some men's faces, which is honored wherevei presented.— Thackeray. In youth, women are our idols; at a ripe age, our companions; in old age, our nurses, and in all ages, our friends. — Bacon. An Apt Answer. —Said one man to another: "If it wasn't Sunday, how much would you take for all that lumber ?" If it wasn't Sunday I'd tell you. It is not until the flower has fallen off that the fruit begins to ripen. So in life, it is when the romance has passed that the practical usefu...

Character is Power. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Character is Power. It is often said that knowledge is power, and this is true. Skill or faculty of any kind carries with it superiority. So, to a certain extent, wealth is power and genius has a transcendent gift of masterA* over men. But higher, purer, better than all, and more constant in it* influence, more lasting in its sway, is the power of character —that power which emanates from a pure and lofty mind. In any community, who is the man of most influence ? To whom do all look up with reverence? Not the smartest man, not the cleverest politician, nor the most brilliant talker; but he who in a long course of years of prosperity and adversity, has neighbors, who have seen his life, and all of whom pronounce him worthy to be called wise and good. In any society when a difference of opinion arises on matters of little or no consequence, it is wise to give in, although you may have incontestible proofs to support the correctness of your opinion; this flatters the other's vanity, an...

The Snow-Bound, Starved Emigrants of 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

The Snow-Bound, Starved Emigrants of 1846. Statement by Mr. Reed, one of the Dormer Company. "The Dormer Tragedy—A Thrilling Chapter in Our Pioneer History." Editors Press:—-An article under the above quoted title appeared in your issue of January 21st, 1871. The preface contained the following: "The sufferings of the Douner party, who were snowed in, and detained on the mountains more than three months, in the winter of 1846---47 has been much talked about, and some garbled stories have been published; but from the very nature of the case, anything like a true history was difficult to come at." The writer of the above truly says that it has been much talked about, and some garbled stories have been published. But there never was a more garbled story than the one entitled the "Dormer Tragedy," written by F. H. McDougal. After the lapse of '25 years the sad affair must be raked over and hashed up to furnish material foi F. H. McDougal's "Tragedy." F. H. McDougal's informant, Mrs. Cur...

BIBD Architect.—Dr. T. H. Hyatt, the California Correspondent of Moore's Rural Neio Yorker writes: Among the evergreen foliage of a live oak tree, standing near the springs at Junglewood, we noticed a bird's nest, large enough for that of a pigeon or turtle dove, which had an awning or arbor built over as a screen against the hawks, as well as to keep off the burning rays of the mid^day sun. It exhibits a very judicious instinct if not a show of reason.
