THE STUDEBAKER FARM WAGON. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

THE STUDEBAKER FARM WAGON. We present our readers to-day with a cut of the celebrated Studebaker Farm Wagon, manufactured at South 13end. Indiana, by the Studebakor Manufacturing Company. Since the completion of the railroad across the continent and the consequent increased facilities of commerce between the States oast and west of the Rocky Mountains, all our industrial pursuits have been brought into close competition with those of the East. Especially has this been the case with our manufactories, and none have felt this competition more keenly than our Avagon makers. There are now some three or four large Eastern wagon factories extensively engaged in shipping farm wagons to all parts of this coast, to say nothing of the great number of carriages, buggies, and stagecoaches that are annually imported from the same direction. These manufacturing companies have their agencies established in all the principal towns on the coast, and seem determined to supply us with their wagons at ...

COLLECTING AND PLANTING MULBERRY SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

COLLECTING AND PLANTING MULBERRY SEED. We had no time last week to consult our associate editor on the subject of our correspondent's query with regard to planting mulberry seed, and our principal editor having had no experience in this particular line was at a loss to answer the inquiry. Wo are glad, however, that within our own household we can speak on this important question from personal experience, which, upon practical matter, wo regard as the best authority. The mulberry, like the various kinds of raspberries and blackberries, is composed of a large number of small berries, each having a separate seed covered by pulp. The pulp of each of these small berries is united with the pulp of other small berries adjoining it, and this union of small berries forms what wo call a mulberry, which is in fact a bunch of mulberries. Now to tho question:—To collect and preserve the seed, tho berriea should be allowed to ripen fully before gathering, so that the pulp will be soft and easy to...

PROTECTION TO SILK AND TEA CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

PROTECTION TO SILK AND TEA CULTURE. The land upon which Herr Schnell and his Japanese colony for the cultivation of tea and silk were located in El Dorado county, was unsurveyed public land. This fact has been the source of great annoyance and discouragement to the colony; so much 30 that the originators of the enterprise Lad almost lost heart to continue the experiment. The friends of the industrial progress of the State will be gratified that this annoyance is now at an end. Through the instrumentality of Capt. John Mullen of this city and Congressman Sargent, a special law has been passed by Congress allowing Schnell to locate 640 acres, including the improvements and plantations of tea and mulberries, at $1.25 per acre. This is a just and very important law; and now our State should aid Mr. Schnell to give the matter a thorough and satisfactory trial. No one man should be called tipon to defray alone the expense, and assume the risk of so costly and important an undertaking. The...

GOOD APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

GOOD APPLES. But a few years since all our winter apples came from Oregon. It is gratifying to know that now most of them come from the foothills of the Sierras, within our own State. A comparison of apples from Oregon and the Sierras, as they are now found side by side in our market, is decidedly in favor of the latter. Our own apples are more juicy, finer grained better flavored and highly colored. The same varieties compared show the California apple in a much better state of preservation, and proves its keeping qualities to be superior. We have noticed a few boxes in the market lately from some thirty miles above Placerville. They sire much superior in all the qualities referred to above to those grown lower down toward the valley. These facts should give our fruit growers some valuable and practical hints. They show that by utilizing the natural advantages our State possesses, as a fruit growing country, we may enjoy the luxury of fresh apples in good eating condition the year ...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Pukity of Melted Metals Determined by Their Drops.—Dr. Quincke, of Berlin, has described, —says the Poh/teclunssche Journal, —a new method of determining the purity of melted metals, and of various chemical combinations by the hight of the drops which are formed by them upon a horizontal surface. By the hight of a drop, such as is formed by dew upon a leaf or by quicksilver upon glass, is meant the vertical distance of the horizontal plane from the vertex of the drop surface. This altitude is nearly constant, and is independent of the diameter of the drop if it is not greater than 20 millim. * * * The altitude of large Hat drops or bubbles is less if their surface is covered with a thin coat of some fluid. A fluid coat less than the millionth of a millimetre in thickness is sufficient to reduce the altitude of melted drops in a sensible degree. A maximum of depression (\) occurs when the coat is 50-1,000,000 of a millimetre in thickness, which is about 1-10 of t...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Parthenogenesis.— A. S. Paokard reviews, in the American Naturalist for March, a work by Prof. Ganin on the early itagef of Ichneumon parasites, ami at the oonclusion says ho cannot refrain from making some rellections suggested by the remarkable discoveries of Ganin. We quote:— " In the first place, these facts bear strongly on Cope and Hyatt's theory of evolution by ' acceleration and retardation.' In the history of these early larval stages we sec a remarkable acceleration, or hurrying up, of the embryo. A simple sac of unorganized cells, with a half-made intestine, so to ■peak, is hatched, and made to do the duty of an ordinary, quite highly organized larva. Even the formation of the ' primitive band,' usually the first indication of the organization of the germ, is postponed to a comparatively late period in larval life. The different anatomical systems, the heart, with its vessels, the nervous system, and the respiratory system (trachea), appear at longer ...

Notices of Recent Patents. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Notices of Recent Patents. Among the patents recently obtained through Dowey & Co.'s Scientific Press American and Foreign Patent Agency, the following aro worthy of mention : Apparatus for Burning Hydro-Car-bon Oils.—J. B. Lee, Grass Valley, Cal. The object of this invention is to provide a device by which a more perfect combustion of hydro-carbon oils is secured, when they are employed in the furnaces of steam boilers, and also to assist and promote such combustion by the employment and utilization of exhaust steam within the furnace. A series of shallow troughs are placed in the furnace, preferably in a transverse position. The oil is fed'into these troughs, ho as to him; little depth, and there burned. A pipe, or scries of pipes, arranged around the interior of the furnace, receives a portion of tho exhaxist steam and throws it into the fire in fine jets; while steam, introduced in like manner behind tho bridge wall, serves to increase the draft as may be desired.

Industrial Progress in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Industrial Progress in Australia. There are so many points in common between Australia and California that an occasional glance at the material progress of that country cannot fail to have an interest to every intelligent reader on the Pacific Coast. Especially is this the case at the present time, just as we are being brought into such intimate commercial relations. It is with this view that we here present a few facts by way of encouragement and instruction to our Pacific Coast readers, which we glean from a late number of the Sydney Herald: — The Vine and Wine in New South Wales. The reputation of New South Wales for wine of great excellence is now established, as tho awards at Paris and London in 1851---56-G2 and 67 testify. In 18G0, the vine occupied 1,583 acres — 622 being devoted to wine. The produce was 99,71)1 gallons of wine and 700 gallons of brandy. In 1870, 3,906 acres produced 460,324 gallons of wine and 1,637 gallons of brandy. At one time it was questioned whether th...

Fata Morgana at Santa Cruz. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Fata Morgana at Santa Cruz. The Santa Cruz Sentinel, of April Ist, says: On Wednesday morning last, one of the finest mirages that it has been our good fortune to see made its appearance in our bay; in fact the picture partook more of the Fata Morgana than mirage. Standing on the bluff, near the light-house, we watched the beautiful scene for hour after hour. It was one of those scenes which at times makes its appearance on the coast of Messin. The entire beach, with its narrow line of yellow sand extending from Point Pinos entirely around to this place, and the many landing places and towns became visible, looming up like gigantic castles. The houses in Monterey, twenty-two miles distant, appear to hang in the air, and as if gently rocked in a sea of glass. The mountains" back of that city, and the light-house, formed a splendid background. Far away on the right could be seen an ocean steamer, which, at times, seemed to be four or five stories high, with heavy roll plowing her way ...

Improvement in Hubs and Axles. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 15 April 1871

Improvement in Hubs and Axles. Mr. C. E. Dormer, of Sonora, has invented an improved wagon-axle, by means of which wheels can be made to last a long time without running loose, and by which the end motion can be taken up when it becomes too great. The construction will be easily understood from the accompanying illustration and description. The hub, A, contains an axle-box, B, within which the axle turns. This box is provided with an oil-cup or opening, C, (one for small wagons, or two, as here shown, for large ones) and passages from this open at various points within the box so as to thoroughly lubricate the spindle, E. Within the box, B, near each end, are two steel supplementary" boxes, a, a, which the spindle bears in as it turns, and which are also pierced with holes for lubricating. The nut, F, which serves to retain the wheel in place on the spindle, has a sleeve which extends inward and rests against the shoulder at the end of the spindle. The threads of the screw, c, are c...
