Our Printed Mail List. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 22 April 1871

Our Printed Mail List. Subscribers will notice that thnir names are printed on colored paper and pasted upon each copy of the Press. This is done by machinery, to expedite the issue of our paper, the regular edition of which has become too large to be convenient to send out by the old method of writing the names. The figures found on the right of the pasted slips represent the date to which the subscriber has paid. For instance, 215p70 shows that our patron has paid his subscription up to the 2tst of September, 1870; 4jy72,thnt he lias paid'to the 4th of January, 1872; 4jlo, to the 4th of July, 1870. The inverted letters occasionally used are marks of reference, simply for the convenience of the publishers. If errors in the names or accounts of subscribers occur atany time an early uotice will secure their immediate correction.

THE EAGLE HAY PRESS. The above is a correct representation of this remarkable Eagle Hay Press, THE INVENTION OF J. A. McGILLIVRAL, OF ILLINOIS, TO WHOM LETTERS PATENT WERE ISSUED JANUARY 10TH, 1865, AND JULY 24T11, 1866. Several years were devoted by the patentee to the perfection of this powerful press, and its unprecedented sale in the East induces the proprietors to introduce it into California and the Pacific States. All who have seen or used these Presses pronounce them superior to anything used heretofore. The power is applied by means of two levers, and it will be seen the power increases in ratio to the resistance; as the levers approach a horizontal position the power can scarcely be estimated. It is not only a powerful Press, but has the advantage of being Cheap, and also Simple, therefore not liable to get out of order. Three men with one horse can bale from Ten to Fifteen Tons per Day, each bale weighing 230 to 300 lbs. It obviates all necessity by beating the hay before...
