Swivel Plows. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Swivel Plows. Their Advantages on Level Land and Side Hills. The advantages resulting from the use of swivol plows, in these days, when smooth and even surfaces are so desirable for the proper and most effective working of tho modern improved harvesting machines, are most striking and obvious to every intelligent farmer. To meet this want various devices have been brought out, both on this coast and at tho East. Tho one we herewith present is coming largely into uae at tho East, and won the highest prize for sod and stubble plowing at tho trial of swivel plows by tho Now York Stato Agricultural Society, September, 1870, and previously at numerous other public trials. The advantage of Buch plows is very fully and clearly set j forth in the following article, whioh we clip from the 1. Swivel plows years ago wore called sidehill plows. They were used chiefly on hill-sides, to turn the furrows down hill, and they worked pretty well for that purpose, but were n o t o f much use on level ...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Atmospheric Gas Engine.—The Mechanics' Magazine for May 26th, describes a new engine patented by Messrs. Lnngeu and Otto, of Cologne. We quote part of the description:—" Gas and air, mixed in such proportions as to give an explosive compound, are admitted under a piston which slides air-tight in a vertical cylinder open at the top. The compound is ignited, explodes, and the explosion drives the piston upwards. The ignited gases having increased in volume, lose their heat, their pressure becomes loss aa the piston rises, and when it has got at the top of the cylinder a partial vacuum is formed and the pressure of the atmosphere makes the piston descend. * * * The piston, instead of having a piston rod connected to the flywheel shaft by a crank and connecting rod, has a rod fixed to it upon which is formed a rack in gear with a spur wheel upon the fly-wheel shaft; this spur wheel is not fixed to the shaft, but is so connected to it by means of a ratchet wheel or f...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Physical Constitution of the Sun. — In Silliinans Journal for June, Prof. W. A. Norton has an article upon this subject, in which he takes the ground that the heat repulsion emanating from the sun causes the various substances -which it is composed,—probably the same which are present in all coamical bodies,—to arrange themselves in successive envelops aocording to the gravity of the atoms constituting each; beginning with the heavier metallic vapors, and terminating with tho lighter (potassium, sodium, etc.), and the permanent gases, with hydrogen outermost. The waves of radiant heat, which pass from atom to atom, directly urge the atoms away from oach other by repulsive impulses. Certain phenomena relating to comets suggest this theory, and thereby explain some of the solar phenomena which have been obscure. We quote:— 14 If, as is now conceded by astronomers, the tail of a comet is made up of matter detached from the general mass of the comet, by reason of a ...

Lower California. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Lower California. Eds. Press:—Having just returned from Lower California where I have been for some weeks past, looking at the country and having gone about 200 Miles Down the Coast From San Diego, I availed myself of the kind invitation of the Bey. Father Übach, (the Catholio priest of old San Diego), to ride with him in his buggy behind his two large tine horsos; as it was at the time his parish duties required him to visit "San Rafael" and Santo Tomas;" to give the isolated inhabitants of that dosolato country the benefit of religious services and teachings; it being made obligatory for him to make the trip and hold services there twice a year. This is done without any appropriation of funds for the extraordinary expenses of the trip which is very destructive to clothing, buggy, harness, horse shoes und horse flesh; besides the great deprivations to be suffered on the roads, travelers are obliged to take along horse feed, blankets, and provisions, to provide for camping out and l...

Notes on Half Moon Bay.—No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Notes on Half Moon Bay.—No. 2. Editors Press:—ln the valleys, water is obtained from the streams for stock and household purposes, it being in some cases raised by hydraulic rams. On the hills springs abound in such profusion that a farm of almost any size can be had with plenty of water. Artesian wellboring has been tried in several localities, but without success. A heavy growth of timber, principally redwood, covers the coast range, and extends well down some of the ridges and valleys, furnishing an abundance of lumber, fencing and wood. Lumber sells at the mills from $14 to $20 per M., according to the proximity of the mill to the settlement. Split redwood pickets, six feet long, of which most of the fencing is made, sell at from 810 to $15 per M., according to locality. We have four sawmills and one grist-mill. A large double circular sawmill has just been put in operation on the Purrissima, by Messrs. Borden <fe Hatch, to take the pl^ce of their old water mill that ...

Redwood Sawdust in Running Streams. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Redwood Sawdust in Running Streams. Much complaint is made, through the redwood country, of the practice of casting sawdust into running streams. If carried to any considerable extent, it becomes a most intolerable nuisance, rendering the water impure, and entirely unfit for domes* tic use, or for the use of stock. Wherever it lodges and remains for some time in any considerable body, especially if exposed to the hot sun, as it must be, more or less, during the season of low water, it generates the most disgusting mephitio gases, equal to or worse than decaying animal matter. We have had some experience in the way of placing hot water, for only a few days, in a redwood tank, in a manufacturing establishment in this city. It produced a stench, which, if it had been continued, would have driven all the workmen out of the building. Of course no fish can live in a stream where such sawdust is thrown. Neither any person, nor any manufacturing establishment has a right to poison any runni...

The Philosophy of Hay-Making. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

The Philosophy of Hay-Making. The following article, which was prepared for the Scientific Press, somo two years ago, will be new to nearly, if not quite all the readers of tho Rural. It is also timely, and will fulfil our promise to tho Santa Cruz Farmer's Club to furnish an article, this week, on tho curing of hay: Among many farmers there is conside.rublo inquiry as to the proper time to cut grass for hay; while others appear to think that the convenience of the proprietor in the supply of help is of more importance, than the difference in the nutritive condition of the crop, within a range of a few days or even weeks. Acting upon tho old proverb that "the proof of the pudding is in the eating," quite a number of intelligent farmers have, from time to time, made careful comparative experiments as to the result of feeding early and late cut hay; and it has thereby been proven that tho value of a ton of hay, cut while green and succulent, and cured in the right manner, contains fro...

Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Irrigation. The dry seasons of 18G3 ami 18G-A elicited a considerable discussion on tho subject of irrigation among the farmers and tho press of the State; but beyond discussion very little was done to practically put in opertion the theories advanced. As the rain fall since those years has been sufficient, even with the slack system of cultivation practiced, to secure avorage crops, the subject has attracted but littlo further attention until now. Tho severe drouth of the present year has had such a damaging effect upon the crops of the great central agricultural portions of the Stato, that tho discussion of the subject has not only been renewed with increased earnestness, but largo associations of capitalists have been formed for building ditches, aqueducts, and other facilities for irrigating large sections of the country; and from tho energy with which surveys are being prosecuted, and in some instances, the work actually pushed forward, we are warranted in the expectation of la...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. CALIFORNIA. The harvost, as far as it has progressed, has turned out bettor than was anticipated iv month ago. Tho yield of hay, though lighter than usual, will nevertheless bo sufficient to meet all demands. Farmers will of courso, this year, save their straw, to moot any possible contingency. The prospect for an abundant yield of fruit, hitherto noted, will be fully realized. Fruit, generally, is maturing rather earlier than usual. Apricots, npplos and pears are already beginning to mako their appeai'ance in the market, and will soon become plentiful. In thoso parts of tho Stato devoted exclusively to wheat, and whero that crop has entirely failed, thoro will bo much individual destitution, and many farmers will be entirely broken up. But the largo demand for labor in the construction of irrigation ditchon, in such neighborhoods, will undoubtedly afford much relief, and the construction of such improvements will give the fullest assuranco of futuro success.

The Late Mr. George Peabody. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

The Late Mr. George Peabody. The accompanying illustration, which we take from our coteinporary, the Literary Journal, is an excellent likeness of the late Mr. George Peabody, whose name is familiar in the mouths of all nations as a great philanthropist. George Peabody was born Feb. 18th, 1795, in Danvers, Mass.. where his boyhood was passed. In May, 1812, when the British invaders came sailing up the Potomac, he enlisted in the patriot army, and served a few months as a soldier. After the war he formed a partnership with a Mr. liiggs, and spent a large part of his time traveling as "drummer" for the firm, in which way he made a large business acquaintance. In 1830 when Mr. Riggs retired from business, Mr. Peabody found himself at the head of one of the largest commercial houses in the country. Throughout his life he maintained a character of great integrity, discretion and public spirit, though he never courted political honors, and kept aloof from party disputes. He retired from t...

Chances of Success in Business. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Chances of Success in Business. On the subject of speculation, an old and new York business man makes the following hypothetical table, estimating the chances on ten year's active use of brains and capital in the chief sources of speculation extant, omitting speculative mining: Start fifty educated business men, twen-ty-five years, and supply each of them with $20,000 to use for ten years, and at that period to report their actual position. The probable returns would be: In stocks —One man at the end, would be worth $200,000; two men, about $40,000 to $50,000; two men, about $20,000 to $25,---000; forty-five men bankrupt. In grains and western produce—One man, $100,000, one, $75,000 to $80,000; three, $50,000 to $75,000; five, $40,000 to $50,000; ten, $25,000 to $30,000; ten, $10,---000 to $20,000; twenty men bankrupt. In cotton—One man $150,000; one, $100,---000; one, $75,000; five, $40,000 to $50,000; three, $30,000 to $40,000; ten men, $5,000 to $10,000; twenty-nine bankrupt. In ...

Industries, Employment and Business. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Industries, Employment and Business. A look through the Mission Woolen Mills, and a call at one or two of the foundrios, suggest points expressive of " the situation" of life and business in the West. Labor on the Pacific is now at a par with that of the East, no higher in the average, and no lower; by which remark we do not mean skilled white man's labor alone, but skilled and unskilled white man's and Chinese alike. The fact is proven by the history of the woolen mills. The two in this city have been running uninterruptedly for eight years and are running at their full capacity to-day. The Mission Mills employ 400 hands altogether, and the money paid on labor account is as near that for equal products in the East as can be, low enough in comparison to warrant the dictum that there is " no differenoe," which means in this connection that with the Chinese here the sum total may be even a little lower. Boys and girls, wages are the same, but expert white bosses and masters in the tra...

Strawberries on High Bushes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 24 June 1871

Strawberries on High Bushes. A writer in the St. Paul Frwf affirms that he has seen scores of miles of country some sixty miles north of Fort Totton which was an almost continuous plantation of wild strawberries, growing in many of the rich spaces, not on horizontal vines, but on bushes, many of them three and foiir feet high, on which the clusters of this delicious fruit attained a size rarely reached by the most assiduous cultivation. So profuse was this native production of strawberries, on what is called the Pembina Mountain, that the cart-wheels, crushing the berries as they revolved, were fairly red with this wild vintage of the plains, and left long crimson trails, as of blood, behind them. Wild Ht raw berries, he adds, are abundant in every part of the Red Kiver valley; but on the fertile plateau known as the Pembina Mountain, remote from every human settlement, they grow with a luxuriance which is simply astonishing, and so far as we know, unrivalled. It is the only region ...

True, when the Crimean struggle was going on —that contest that used to look so Urgt to us, but which in contrast with our own assumes rather the character of a tempest in a teapot —tho London Times did send Mr. Russell, afterwards of Bull Run notoriety, to chronicle the resounding exploits of our British frienes on the shores of the Black Sea; and the London Times j was so astounded at its own enterprise, ...
