JHM DIVINIJMO ROO.-,. - :
( From jtho-JSMdvroodonteriJ
The history of the uses of the divining
rods shows that they were first used in
antiquity mainly or wholly for moral
purposes; that in the middle ages'1 their
employment was for a long period con
" fined, to tht discovery r of material,
objects; that toward the "end oftthe
seventeenth century the; moral use was
again asserted, and that in the eigh
teenth century the divining rod was
relegated to the material sphere,., and
assumed the comparatively modest
functions in the discharge of which it
still lingers among us.
It will be remembered that the Egyp
tian sorcerers confronted by Moses
carried rods, as Moses and Aaron also
did. The prophet Hosea denounces
, - the use of tods for tb.e-vdfSMrtion bythe
i V-. " Al lY-J- . ' 1.1.'.- l..4

the King of Babylon consulted rods; or
arrows to decide., his ,curse- The
Scythians, Persians and Medes used
them. They were used throughout the
Orient, and by the Turks, for divination;
also by the ancient Germans as related
by Tacitus. The application of the
divining rods in historical antiquity was
mainly or wholly moral; that is, it was
employed to detect guilt, decide future
events, advise courses of action, .etc..
The use of the rod to discover hidden
treasure or metallic ore became general,
in Germany, and was extended thence
through Flanders, England., Sweden,
Francet Italy'. and Sjpain beforeBf.he
seventeenth, century- its .'use Jn this
country was first known after .the dis
covery of gold, in California, .since .which
it has appeared in every mining camp,
and there always were found ignorant
and credulous peopleto.give Jit credence
and belief. ' J
The best scientific explanation of the
movements of the .divining rod was by
a French. sayant, Chevreu), inj(J53. He
ascribes the movements 6i the rod to
minute, unconscious, muscular move
ments, and these jare causedhe thinks,
conscious decision, or explanation of, the
operator. An Impression' that the rod
will dip at a certain point, or wish that it
would, or even insome minds, a .fear"
that it may do so, are all effective causes
of the peculiar muscular movement. The
, application of the rod to the discovery of
metals, coal, buried treasure, etc., is
shown abundaptly to be chimerical. The
rules and methods asrvreUas.the asserted
performance of its professors, contradict
each other, and innumerable failures and
exposures have justly covered with ridi
cule their pretensions. ,

B. F. Johnson writes the IJew York
Tribune: "Intelligent and observant
horsemen tell us. the California two-year-old
thoroughbred is; as an average, quite
as well grown and as fully developed as
the three-year-old of pur, side oi the
mountains, This, they say, js probably
owing to the mildness of the' climate,
and a green forage..al the. year. rounds if
needed that keeps a colt growing right
alone. These are', no doubL eood rea

considered whether the feeding of alfalfa,
(lucerne) green. and dry, may not have
something to do with the rapid growth
and size attained at an early age? We
know there are no .better pastures in the,
world for putting on fat and flesh than
those of Kentucky, where bluegrass
abounds, supported by timothy. , and
clover, white and red; and we know too,
that, in spite, of these advantages, Kentucky-bred
stockjis losing in size and
weight every year however it may gain
in quality. And the same is to a certain
extent true of the bluegrass, timothy and
clover pastures, of, jthe entire. bluegrass
region, west of the Alleghanies and
north of the Ohio river. In vie w,of these
several facts, will it net be, worth while
to, try experiments wit!) alfalfa tan,d learn
by actual trial whether it may not do for
eastern stock what it has done for that of
the Pacific slope given it the lead in'
fast and fine horses, with 'other kind of
stock to be heard from later on?
