STEAM PLOW FOR TULE LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

STEAM PLOW FOR TULE LANDS. Wo have seen the drawings of a new steam plow designed by Mr. George L. Pierce of this city. It is intended for use on tule lands and bus a number of peculiarities which, it is believed, will render it particularly serviceable for its intended purpose. The engine and boiler are made of a peculiar construction, with the purpOM of obtaining the minimum of weight with the greatest stability and power. The device is not intended as a locomotive, but is to be drawn by horses, all the power of the engine being devoted to driving the cutters. The revolving cutters are driven by chain gearing. They consist of thin saw-blades mounted on a shaft in such a way as to be still 1 while they can easily be replaced when necessary. These cut parallel furrows. Bolted on to these are curved cross-cutters, also of thin metal, arranged so as to cut in a spiral, there being three, or perhaps four, rows of these last. The cutters are driven at a high rate of speed and cannot wel...

DIVERSIFIED AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

DIVERSIFIED AGRICULTURE. The agricultural editor of the Washington Chronicle, in referring to some remarks recently made in this paper in favor of a more diversified system of agriculture for California, adds the following pertinent and pungent remarks:— "The vice of superficial agriculture— reliance on a fow great staples—seems to havo developed itself in this new region. Tho enormous wheat crops of California are evidence of the same rapid exhaustion of the soil that has cursed our pioneer agriculture from the first. As tho Piiuss truly argues, two or three bad seasons in succession will leave California farmers, very poor, if not bankrupt. Even a series of favorable crops will but postpono this issue. The habit of buying all the minor necessaries of life from uncertain proceeds of great staples, will keep any agricultural community poor. It seems that tho Pacific slope is destin'etl to pass through tho usual stage of exhaustive and superficial culture before scienco and skill can...

OUR ILLUSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

OUR ILLUSTRATION. In a young country like ours, where one has but time to grapple with the stern and urgent necessities of the present, where wealth is accumulating but not accumulated to any very general extent, there is but little opportunity for sentiment. Yet every now and then in tho rare intervals which occur, a little scene, a token, a casual likeness to something known before, will set the memory at work and carry one back to the old times spent in what is even now called "home" by a majority of those resident on our coast. The picture given on this page will un- doubtedly present a familiar face to many of our readers, although years may have elapsed since they have seen its like. Yet the old mill, the rustic bridge, the shady brook, all have had a place in our younger days, when there was no care nor anxiety for the morrow. Was there evor aplaco like the old homestead ? A little sentiment, a fow moments absence from the practical, wearying exertions of life, can do no harm...

ANOTHER SHAKE-A SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

ANOTHER SHAKE-A SUGGESTION. Last Sunday, the earthquake returned from ita trip to the East, and favored us with a couple of shakes which did uo further injury than to frighten a number of people. The shocks were felt more severely on the other side of the Bay, it is stated, and were experienced along the peninsula south; and also to the north. We have for several years tried to make up a tabular form of the times at which the various shocks have been felt in different places, so as to determine the center of disturbance, the rate at which the shocks travel, etc. But this is impossible on account of the great variation in the times as given. We think that it would be an excellent idea to have the times of various localities corrected to a standard by telegraph, which can easily be done, and thus we might be able to deduce many facts of interest and importance on the subject. There is no country subject to the shocks which has such telegraphic advantages as we have, and it is a pity t...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Tilghman's Stone Cutting Process. — The Journal of the Franklin Institute for March says that Mr. B. C. Tilghman of Philadelphia shows that a jot of quartz sand, thrown by moans of steam at high pressure, will bore an inch and a half hole through a block of corundum, (nearly as hard as the diamond) an inch and a half thick, in 25 minutes. He has applied the discovery to grinding or dopolishing glass for ornamental purposes; Tising a moderate air-blast, instead of steam, —the spent sand being reconvened to the tipper part of the apparatus, and the resulting dust being drawn back into the fan and again forming part of the sand shower. Ten or fifteen seconds is time enough to completely grind the surface of ordinary glass. By covering parts of the glass surface by a stencil or pattern of any tough or elastic material, such as paper, lace, caoutchouc, or oil paint, designs of any kind may be engraved. There is a kind of colored glass made by having a thin stratum of...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. A Constant Fobm of Danibll's Batteky. Sir W. Thomson has devised a form of this battery which will last for years- the only limit being the falling to pieces of the zinc. A late number of Nature copies tho paper in which he described it to the Royal Society. We give an extract:—"The cell is of glass, in order that the condition of the solutions and metals which it contains may be easily seen at any time. It is simply a'cylindrical or rectangular jar with a flat bottom. It need not be more than ten centimetres deep; but it may be much deeper, with advantage in respect to permanence and ease of management, when very small internal resistance is not desired. A CUM of thin sheet copper is laid at its bottom. A properly shaped mass of zinc is supported in the upper part of the jar. A glass tube (which for brevity will be called the churging-tube) of a centimetre or more internal diameter, ending in a wide saucer or funnel above, passes through the center of the zinc,...

Notes of Travel in Amador County. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

Notes of Travel in Amador County. [Written for the Puehr.] lone City- -Sutter Creek. lone City, situated 38 miles from Sacramento and 12 miles from Jackson, the county seat, contains about 300 inhabitants. The valley in which it is situated is very beautiful and productive; but the legalizing of a " Spanish grant," which covered this side of the county, has almost paralyzed its inhabitants. Paying for land a second time at an exorbitant figure explains itself. Some years will elapse before it will have recovered fully. The Broom and Match Factory at lone City, owned by John Kirk, Esq., manufactures 3,000 dozen of brooms and 5,000 gross of matches annually. Hall & Co.'s grist mill, at the same place, has three run of buhrs, driven by an engine of 60 hone-power. Its capacity is about 75 barrels of Hour and 50 tons of ground feed daily. About three tons of lignite are used daily for the engine. A mine of this fuel is situated in close proximity to lone City, and is owned by...

The New Geyser Field of Montana. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

The New Geyser Field of Montana. According to the Eastern papers, Hon. N. P. Langfordhas been lecturing on atrip from Helena and along the Yellowstone river, in Montana, to Yellowstone Lake Wyoming. He thus described a remarkable volcanic district: Judge, then, of our astonishment, on entering the basin of the Madison, at seeing just before us an immense body of sparkling water projected suddenly and with terrific force into the air to the hight of 125 feet. We had found a real geyser. In the valley before us were 1.000 hot springs of various sizes, and 500 craters throwing out vapor. The geysers were seen in action in every direction, projecting water to various hights. The one first referred to was throwing from an irregular crevice, about 7 by 3 feet, a column of water of corresponding dimensions to a hight of 125 feet. Various names were given to the geysers. One was called the "Fan," as it threw up to a hight of 60 feet two radiating sheets of water, resembling a feather fan. F...

To Miners and Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

To Miners and Farmers. The following letter from the Commissioner of the Land Office to Hon. A. A. Sargent, contains instructions which will enable miners and farmers to adjust their boundaries and treat what is left of fortyacre tracts as enterable as agricultural lands. It is very convenient to both miners and farmers: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 7th inst., inclosing one dated at Nevada, California, the 25th ultimo, from H. S.Bradley, in relation to mineral affidavits, and with reference to the subject would state that, prior to the passage of the amendatory mining act of July 9th, 1870, the local land officers were instructed that -when lands were surveyed and parties sought to establish their mineral character, the affidavits alleg- ing particular tracts to be more valuable for mining than for agricultural purposes, should be made to apply to the smallest legal subdivisions, which at that time were forty-acre tracts. Since the passage of sai...

An Unknown World. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

An Unknown World. When Bret Harte left this coast for the East, some fears were expressed as to the continued excellence of the Overland Monthly, of which ho had been editor. That by his departure a loss was sustained, no reasonably-minded man can deny, but that the loss was irreparable, is not for a moment to be supposed. The conductors of the magazine have been stirred up to still greater exertions, and the talent of the coast has responded. The Overland Monthly sustains well its acquired position. The April number is not a whit inferior to its predecessors. Freshness and talent, energy and dash, carefulness and accuracy are visible on every page, and the journal still maintains for us its wonted charms. That the public are of this opinion, is shown by the circulation which has increased largely. The young Pacific coast has vigorous talent and, we believe, will be able to supply the older Atlantic coast with other excellent writers besides Mr. Harte. It is a little queer, though, ...

MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

MANURES. (Prize Essay of Illinois Ag'l Soc. for 1870.) BY R. ("SIDDIXGS, KOCKFORD ILLINOIS. (Concluded from page 196). To Obtain our Dry Earth is a very simple affair if attended to daring the dry term of midsummer, for we have only to resort to the highway to find it as drr and fine as artificial heat and careful sifting could make it. If not to be had there it can be gathered very rapidly from the surface of a fallow or of a piece plowed for this purpose, and dragged, rolled and dragged again. It is then stored where it can easily be got at. Our plan is, if a stall can be spared for the purpose, to select a middle one and convert it into a bin, from which the earth is daily taken during the season. Two men and a team will till such a stall in a day, and you will have sufficient absorbent for' 10 or 13 head of cattle during the stabling season, say six months. If necessary to be sifted it may be done as usual. Our practice has been to cover the floor two inches deep, and over this ...

Autographic Printing Press. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 8 April 1871

Autographic Printing Press. The annexed engraving represents a new printing press, designed to replace the lithographic press, and claimed to be adapted to common as well as fine work. It consists of a wood (or iron) frame, a weight of live pounds acting on a combination of two levers, two connecting rods, a printing cylinder, and a curved stone. Keplaeing the old Hat stone with the curved one, it is claimed, enables the finest work to be done by unskilled attendants, and obviates the old difficulty arising from the liability of the stones to break. The reasons assigned for this last are, that the ordinary presses give an unyielding pressure. The scraper must pass, or the stone bo broken. "With tlio new press, the pieces lire not so rigid, all the parts are movable and the levers, rising and falling, adapt themselves to irregularites in the stone, although the pressure remains constant in all points. The absence of a tympan results in a saving of seven out of the eight motions requi...
