WALTHAM WATCHES. mJS l^v Citlnß. a, new lhe Public Peonage of WATCHES of domestic production, the AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY respectfully represent: Thatno fact in the history of manufactures is more completely demonstrated than that the best system of making Watches is tho one first established by them at Waltham. That system always had the wan-ant of reason anu common sense, and now the test of time in the trial of the Watches themxelves cannot be denied to have been iimpic and satistactory. It is admitted on every hand—the evidence of daily observation and common repute— mat the Watches not only keep correct time, but that as machines they ENDURE. It should seem that nothing more is needed, but that their sizes, shapes and appearance should suit the tastes of the people. As to all these conditions the American Watch Co. are now fully prepared to answer the exactions of the market. They confidently assert there is no longer any need for such reasons to import watches of any de-criptio...

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 24TH, 18(16. Several years were devoted by the patentee to the perfection of this powerful press, and its unprecedented ale in the East induces the proprietors to introduco it nto California and the Pacific States. All who have seen or used these Presses pronounce them superior to anything usrd 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 th« 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 250 to 300 lbs. It obviates all necessity by beating the hay before p...

The Crown of New England. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

The Crown of New England. Wo gave, somo timo ago, an illustration of one of tho glories of the Pacific Coast, — of tho Yoseniite Valley. To-day we give an engraving of a scene of grandeur of the Atlantic Coast. Both of theso are from chromos of Prang. The engraving to-day, however, hardly does justico to tho original which was shown us by Messrs. Snow & Roos, at their art gallery, 21 Kearny streot. The green of tho foliage, tho azure of the mists, tho glowing and fading colors of clouds and distant hills, cannot of course be deployed in tho engraving. Still a very fair idea is given of the grandeur of Mt. Washington and its brother hills. Tho chromo in question is after nn oxquisito painting by Oeo. E. Brown. To give an adequate) description of tho work, or of tho scene it repre sen ts, demands an abler pen than ours. We prefer, therefore, to recall the words of ono whoso name is dear to our coast, —who has written of our mountains and hills as ho has written of those of...

What Becomes of the Sulphur Used upon the Grape Vine? [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

What Becomes of the Sulphur Used upon the Grape Vine? This question has been answered by Prof. C. Wideman, in the New York Journal of Applied Chemistry, who says that recent analyses of the soil taken from the foot of vines which have been treated with powdered sulphur, shows that the sulphur so employed, after performing its office of warding off disease .to the leaves, falls to the ground, and unites with the lime there to form sulphate of lime—gypsum—the substance now so highly recommended for its fertilizing or rather irrigating qualities. This sulphate of lime has been found at a depth of fully three feet from the surface, and under circumstances -where no other probable origin can be thought of. The transformation is thought to take place within a period of one month from the time of putting the sulphur on the vines. This important fertilizing result affords an additional reason for the use of sulphur on the vines, and wherever else it may be of use in destroying insects or di...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Ozokemt. —This is a vegetable wax from the Caucasus. Ita manufacture into blocks for candle-making, is patented in England, and the process, as carried on at Battersea, by the Messrs. Field, is thus described by Engineering: — " Commencing at the river end of the premises, we found a large store of the ozokerit in two conditions, in the one as dug from the eai-th, and in the other as roughly melted down for convenience of storage in transit. In the latter condition it forms a dark-colored mass, and is packed in barrels, the native or immelted ozokerit being sent ever in canvas bags. From the stores the crude material is conveyed into melting tanks, holding from 2 to 3 tons each, and where it is melted down by means of a steam coil. From these tanks, which are sit anted in a gallery some 15 ft. above the ground level, the ozokerit is run off by gravitation to a series of stills placed outside the main building, and holding from 2 to 8 tons each, and in which it i...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 3 June 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. The Mechanical Coiusklativk op Thought.—Following is an extract from Prof. Tyndall'a lecture on the " Scientific Uses of the Imagination:"—" The philosophy of the future will assuredly tako more account than that of the past of the relation of thought and feeling to physical processes; and it may be that the qualities of the mind will bo studied through the organism as we now study the character of a force though the affections of ordinary matter. Wo believe that every thought and every feeling has its definite mechanical correlative; that it is accompanied by a certain separation and remarshaling of the atoms of the brain. This latter process is purely physical; and were the faculties we now possess sufficiently strengthened, without the creation of any new faculty, it would doubtless be within the range of our augmented powers to infer from the molecular state of the brain the character of the thought acting on it, and, conversely, to infer from the thought th...
