Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 27 page 174
Description:
San Francisco ----------  the traps were in readiness again, but no trap was sprung when the leg was taken. The animals have their regular trails or runways and keep to them until they find trouble on that. A trapper now on the ranch trapped eleven coyotes on a trail before they scented danger and left that runway. The coons use their forelegs as arms, almost like a human being. Wild Oats (Avena) have only recently appeared in the Rancho Cantua country and in small patches only. Poverty grass has come in the last four years. Appeared ::::::::: 25 January 1914 ----------  four or five years ago and over-ran the country the next year or two after. Fossils of whales have been found by us on the mountains back of the ranch . A root was shown me by Miss Lillis [?]; it grows in the Cantua. It is chewed when you are thirsty. I did not seem to be able to identify altho' it was in a case which could not be opened at the moment and I did not have it in my hands. She called it in Spanish something like "Yerba Iagra," but that may be a wild guess. -- Sunday, 25 January 1914.
