Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 94
Chaparral The Chaparral of the Coast Range, by U.C. Mag. [Magazine] vol. 1, p. 98 (1896), by W.L. Jepson.  cont. [continued from p. 93 (Boy_s ears). Ears? Indeed nature kindly disposed his ears where she did so that a boy would not have to bother about his ears. A boy wishes his ears let alone. He resents strongly any one else washing them. It is really insulting. No mule can abide any familiarities (cont. p. 129.)  Sunsets Rarely came wonderful sunsets, mostly in summer or autumn, when the whole western sky would be ablaze with flaming color. Such a uniform dispersal of flame was both stately and simple. Again there would be heaped masses of fluffy clouds, their tops mastered by the magic of coloration, with long horizontal lines of tiny coral islands stretching south just above the tops of the mountains.  ::::::::: The Domestic Animals The turkey flock! How much these birds added to the life of the ranch! Their full guttural cries of gobblings enlivened greatly the animal area about the barns. And it was never other than a pleasing sight to see the short strutting run of the tom turkeys _ the hen turkeys ordinarily utterly indifferent to all these elaborate and pretentious parades. As to origin of word turkey see Encyclopedia Brittania, vol. 27. -Royds, T.F. The Beasts, Birds and Bees of Virgil. A Naturalist_s Handbook to the Georgics. Ed. 1. Oxford. 1918.  The Home. The common room of the house was called the sitting room. In the early years, when hours of work ran from daylight to dark, the great luxury was to sit. When the sitting room was reached you dropped into a chair. The sitting room was more a place of rest than anything.
