OUR POULTRY PRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

OUR POULTRY PRESENTATION. 11l the annexed beautiful poultry illustration we have represented three of the most popular and valuable breeds of fowls which are now claiming the attention of poultry fanciers. In the upper left-hand corner is seen n pair of SilverSpangled Hamburgs. Tln> breed, though beautiful, if Kcaroe, and bni very little issaid about them in the Journal* of the day. They are oi two varieties— the Stiver and the GoldenSpangled, similar in size and form, but differing in color. The Spangled Hamburgs art non-setters, but very good layers of small eggs. The fowls are of medium size, and art often mistaken for Spangled Poland Fowls, from which they are distinguished by their large topnot being Cmored instead oi white. The superior beauty, as well as move useful qualities of this fowl, should canst them to be more abundant. They are indeed both useful and ornamental. In the lower left-hand corner of the illustration a pair of Dark Hramas may bo seen. This fowl ...

Mechanical Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Mechanical Progress. Vacuum Tanning.—The editor of the Boston Hide and Leather Interest has re. cently visited the establishment of Messrs. Norton, Dorr and Hunt, at Lewiston, Maine, to see the working of the above named process, and thinks it well worth the attention of tanners. The "vacuum tank" is of wood, copper lined, and capable of containing 100 "sides." At one end, an air-tight iron door, also copper-lined, is opened to receive the hides, which are hung upon hooks within, and the door is then closed. Several "junks," containing ; tanning liquor of different strengths, are placed underneath the tank, and connected with it by copper pipes so arranged that the liquor from either alone can be admitted into it at will. At the top of the tank enters the pipe from an air-pump driven by water power. There is a pipe and stopcock to admit the external air at the proper time; also a vacuum gauge and a liquor gauge. Everything being ready, the air-pump is started, and at the proper mome...

Scientific Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Scientific Progress. Mhm'knk Man not Pkoved. The following is from a notice by W. Boyd Dawkins, in Nature, of M. Hamy's "Paleeontology of Man": "The evidence adduced by M. Bourgeois of the discovery of flint flukes and scrapers in the Miocene strata of Thenay, along with remains of the hornless rhinoceros and mastodon, proves, according to M. Hamy, that man was an inhabitant of Miocene Europe. It is, however, rejected by most of the French and English sarmtts, because M. Bourgeois has not shown that the implements in question may not have been derived ultimately from the surface of the ground, where they are very abundant, "While M. Hamy acknowledges this to be the case, he does not see its full bearing on the value of the testimony. The implements probably are of Quaternary, or even of post-quaternary age, and certainly cannot, be considered decisive of the sojourn of man in Europe during the Miocene epoch, although the climate at the time was almost tropical, and the conditions of...

Bound East. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

Bound East. [Continued from page 19.] The Union Pacific Railroad. The enterprise shown in building this road, the longest in the world, cannot be too highly praised, and its present and prospective value to the whole country cannot be over-estimated. Roads are great civilizers. The action of Marshal Wade in building common roads in Scotland, years ago, is said to have exercised a more beneficial effect on that country in advancing the interests of the people in all respects, than had been accomplished by the most strenuous exertions of legislators and philanthropists during long periods of time. What Wade's roads did for Scotland, our railroads are doing for the United States. ()ur trans-continental road is opening up vast natural resources, which otherwise would remain lost to the world. The present Board of Managers of the road are deserving of the highest credit for the manner in which they conduct the affairs of so great and important an institution. They are liberal in their ac...

Notes of Travel in San Joaquin County. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 21 January 1871

The city of Stockton (the county seat) is situated on the San Joaquin river, 125 miles from San Fi'aneisco by water and 90 miles by rail, and 50 miles from Sacramento.

Of these last I will speak further along. The outstanding indebtedness of the county is but $314,102, without any floating indebtedness. The following returns, from the U. S.
