Douthett's Patent Double Motion DASH GHURN. Making Butter in from 6 to 10 Minutes. The only really useful and practical C H XJ H IV Ever Offered to the Public. The old style of DASHER CHURN always had the preference over all others, and with this simple and practical attachment, now stands without a rival.

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, 1866. Several years were devoted by the patentee to the perfection of this powerful press, and its unprecedented sale in the Eiist 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. Tim 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 befo...

The World Reaper and Mower. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

The World Reaper and Mower. It has boon ft common source of complaint among farmers, that agricultural machinery is not so well mado as is that of tho shop,-—that it is rougher, less durable and less reliable and efficient. Several years ago, Messrs. E. Ball & Co., of Canton, Ohio, determined to build their " World Reaper and Mower" on the samo plan as that on which they would construct j a lathe,- that is, to have every part accu-. rately cut and fitted, so as to ensure case of running and consequent durability, provided exposure did not defeat their plans. They determined to make a cutgear harvester, and after months of labor | and large expenditure, they completed, in ISGG, tho first article of the kind ever built. The practical history of their machines has proved that an accurately constructed device of the kind will stand tho wear and tear and exposure even better than roughcast machines. They claim that they work better and more easily, and aro far more durable th...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Punching.—One of a scries of communications to Engineering from " An English Engineer in America," has the following: " Few comprehend the extent to which the matter of punching has been curried. Take, for example, the work at the Elgin Watch Factory. The blank discs for the wheels, after being punched from the sheet metal are perforated, leaving the delicate arms and rim with their edges perfectly square, corners sharp, and the surface so neatly finished that no hand work whatever is applied to them afterwards—in fact so good is the job, that the best hand work cannot approach it. To do such work with any degree of success requires not only a punch and die fitted mathematically perfect, but so arranged that they may be changed and set quickly and the punch guided so as to enter the die true beyond any possibility either from carelessness or from slack motion in the machine. This hard problem has been beautifully solved by a simple device in which the punch, the...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Science of Colou a Mental Science.— In a lato lecture before the lioyal Institution, Prof. J. Clerk Maxwell illustrated Young's doctrine of color vision, and remarked that it was the first consistent theory of color. Tho elementary truth recognized thereby is that the difference in colors must be sought not in the nature of light but in the constitution of man. The explanation is therefore not to be reached by tho study of pigments nor in the analysis of the rays of light. Wo quote a paragraph or two from Prof. Maxwell'l lecture: —"I have here a picture of the structure upon which the light falls at the back of the eye. There is a minute structure of bodies like rods and cones or pegs, and it is conceivable that the mode in which we become aware of the shapes of things is by a consciousness which differ! according to the particular rods on the ends of which the light falls, just as the pattern on (he web formed by a Jaoquard loom depends on the mode in which the...

The Cajon Ranch, San Diego County. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

The Cajon Ranch, San Diego County. Eds. Press:—Although it is the general impression that tho crops in this locality are an entire failure, a lato visit to tho Cajon Rancho has choorcd mo; for instead of finding everything dried up, there is a fair prospect of half acrop, and in place of cutting everything for hay, many now think they will make from five to twenty bushels of grainier acre; and as this ranch is only ono of many in this county that might have done as well or better under proper management, a brief description of it may be acceptable. The " Cajon," ns it is known hereabout, was negotiated for by tho celebrated Elder Knapp about three years since; Miguel Pedrorena, representing the three-fourths interest which tho Elder bargained for; but before any money had been paid, Isaac Lankershiem, lately of San Francisco, gave the Elder, I think, $17,000 for his bargain, and took it off his hands. The rancho contains 44,000 acres, or thereabout, 22,000 of which is arable land. T...

Something about Roble. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 10 June 1871

Something about Roble. Messrs Editors:—You may ask where i 3 Roblo, whence did it spring, and for what is it particularly noted? Roble is the name of the first station, four miles south of Chico, Butto county, and owes its exis£ ence and name to tho California and Oregon Railroad. The place is now merely a station and nothing more; what it may be years from now, I would not venture to predict; but I have not the least doubt that beforo long a very important village will spring up here. Tho surrounding country will probably compare favorably with the best land in tho State, and is one of those favored regions in California where the crops do not fail. Situated midway between the Sacramento river and the foot-hills, and about a mile and a half north of Butto creek, taking in a scope of country for several miles around, this station, I am sure, will be tho nucleus of a future town. The country is heavily timbered with oak and under brush; and a farm has to be cleared before it can be w...
