SCIENTIFIC. MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
SCIENTIFIC. MISCELLANY. Variations of the Compass Explained—Retaining Walls. It may be of interest to many readers of this paper to know what is meant by "magnetic variations," which occur in all surveyors' field notes of .surveys, and, consequently, may be used In the very deed that gives title to your home or mine or other property. The expression means tnat the magnetic needle varies east or west from the true north and south line or meridian. • The reason for this variation is that the" magnetic ■ pole and axial pole of the earth do not coincide. It is possible to get into such a place that the two poles will be in the same line. A meridian circle passing through such place* and the magnetic and axial poles is called the "Line of no Variation." This line passes across the United States from the region of Lake Superior to the coast of South Carolina. It will be readily seen, therefore, that an observer with the magnetic compass must make allowance for this variation when making s...
RETAINING WALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
RETAINING WALLS. A few words in regard to the science of building walls for the retaining of earth or rock ■to be deposited against them may not be amiss, inasmuch as one need only walk along some of the streets of Jackson, or almost any one of these mountain towns, and observethe bulging faces of such walls to know that they were improperly built, or at least not scientifically built. Such walls should be made with the same skill as is' used by engineers in building abutments for roads, railroads and the like. Without going into details we might state this as a general rule, modified somewhat by the character of material used for "backing." "The' base should be made from 30% to 50% of the height of the wall." This may be made less where the wall is backed against rock in place or undisturbed earth not mingled with beds of clay. The observance of this rule in the building of front walls along the upper sides of streets on hillside lots would result in more permanent and more beautif...
