A PEOPLE ON STILTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

A PEOPLE ON STILTS. In the low lands of France, to the south of Bordeaux, and especially in the "lands" of Medoc, is found a curious race of people, mostly shepherds, with many fishermen along the sea shore, who have adopted the curious custom of almost universally employing the device known as stilts, as a means of locomotion. Men, women and children are all alike accustomed to this style of going about. The children soon become so accustomed to it as to know no fear, and tho women employ it as generally as the men. The pictoires of Rosa Bonheur have made the reading public quite familiar with the singular habits of tbe people of those countries. Tho first time that a group of these singular people is seen by the observer, a curious emotion comes over his mind, as of a strange prodigy. When they first came in sight, near tho horizon, and are gradually lifted into view, they look much like gigantic crickets creeping slowly along, or making preparations for a spring. As they are obse...

HILL CULTURE OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

HILL CULTURE OF WHEAT. A correspondent of Hearth and Home gives the following in evidence of what may be accomplished by careful cultivation, even in wheat: On the 10th of September, 1859, I planted one acre of wheat in hills two feet by one apart, put four kernels in each hill, and covered them with a hoe the same as Indian corn is usually planted. I cultivated it with the hoe on the 15th of October, and again on the'lOth of May, following with horse, cultivator and hoe. The soil was loose gravel of poor quality, except a small portion from which a barn was removed several years before, and from which portion the following calculations were made: Number of hills per sore 22,440 Number (average) of stalks per hill ---',11 Number of stalks per acre ,636,120 Number (average) of kernels per head ..„.'!

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. The Iron Problem.—The following is an extract from an article in London Engineering'. —The percentage of sulphur and phosphorus in the pig iron still limits the applicability of the Bessemer process. "Invention after invention has been made for the purpose of effecting a purification in the Bessemer converter, but the results recorded have been total failures. There is one exception, however, with regard to one of the most recent patents taken out in this country, viz.. Mr. Sherman's process of purifying iron by means of iodine. Experiments have been made which afford conclusive evidence that the desired effect can be produced under favorable conditions, and it remains now to be found out how these conditions can be brought under the control of the practical metallurgist, so as to insure a similar favorable result at all times iv ordinary commercial practice. There is another patent which has the same purpose in view, taken out by Mr. James Henderson, of New Yor...

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS. Fauna Argentina.—W. H. Flower gives in Nature for Feb. 9th, a summary of the first volume of the " Annals of the Public Museum of Buenos Ayres"—the sixth number just completed, being the commencement of a new volume. This is to be a most valuable work. The field is extensive, and its present manager, Dr. Burmeister, the Director of the Museum, is a naturalist of note, formerly Professor of Zoology in the University of Halle. We quote a paragraph from the commencement of Mr. Flower's article, to indicate the importance of the work: "Few districts of the world are so rich in well preserved remains of an extinct fauna of remarkable and interesting character as the neighborhood of the city of Buenos Ayres. The immense alluvial plain of the Argentine Hepublic is toe burial place of the Megatherium, the Mylodon, the Glyptodon, the Macrauchenia, the Toxodon, and many other strango forms of ancient life, whose bones are ever and anon restored to light by the crumbling a...

A Printers' Proof-Galley Rack. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

A Printers' Proof-Galley Rack. We illustrate below a simple device which, we believe, will be found exceedingly useful to the compositor. This is a proof-galley rack, which is adjustable to any case, without the slightest trouble, and which is shown in the engraving attached to a case, and with a galley placed really considerable amount of time is saved. This device is the invention of a practical printer, who ought to know what will upon it. (One end of the galley is broken in the cut, to show the construction better). When a printer corrects his proof, he is now obliged to place the galley on the case, thereby covering up a number of the boxes, and thus interfering materially with his work. With this device no boxes are covered, the case is not wet, and a be of use. The patentee is Mr. H. H. Gale, one of the publishers of the Roseburg Ensign, a copy of which, now before us, impresses us very favorably-with regard to its merits. We recommend printers to try the galley-rack, address...

The Famous Calaveras Skull. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

The Famous Calaveras Skull. Doubtless most of our readers have heard of the skull, said to have been found in a shaft, near Angel's Camp, Calaveras county, at a depth of 132 feet below the surface. This relic of by-gone times has created quite a sensation in the scientific world, and has been immortalized by verse, in the Overland Monthly, by Bret Harte. ■ The most important question connected with this skull is the truth or falsehood of the story with regard to the locality where it was found. If it was actually found as described and believed by Prof. Whitney, and under the accumulated strata shown in Fig. 1, herewith annexed, it is no doubt the oldest specimen of human remains yet discovered in any part of the world, —in all probability antedating, by a long period of time, the famous "cave remains" of Europe; and must carry back the existence of men on earth many thousands of years anterior to the time generally fixed for his first appearance on this planet. Discredit, however, ...

Better Communication with Arizona. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

Better Communication with Arizona. The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce last week adopted a resolution to the effect that the mail facilities between this place and Arizona were totally inadequate, and urging the Postmaster-General to establish a semi-weekly mail. Judge Tweed and Gov. Safford, both of Arizona, addressed the Chamber concerning this matter. The subject was brought under consideration by a petition of a number of leading business firms of this city, which urges the necessity for prompt action, representing the danger that a large portion of the trade would be directed to the East, and concluded as follows: Your petitioners also represent that the population of Central Arizona has nearly doubled in the past two years; that the farmers now raise, from the land cultivated in that section, nearly all the grain required by the Government for the use of the army cavalry and for local consumption; that the rich mining interests are being rapidly developed; that the ores from...

HERBAGE AND FORAGE PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

HERBAGE AND FORAGE PLANTS. The article which we published last week on the subject of " grass" hail the effect of cmsing a gentleman who has over a third of a century paid more than ordinary attention to this important subject, to look up an article of much interest in connection with the subject, and which he assisted in compiling, for the purpose of illustrating a very tine collection of agricultural productions which were placed in the London Exhibition of 18, r)l, and subsequently, for permanent preservation, in the Museum of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew. where they still remain. We have been so much interested and instructed in the perusal of the paper that we feel persuaded the generality of our readers will be gratified to penise at least a digest of its contents, as the entire paper would be too lengthy for our already overcrowded columns. The instructive points to be derived therefrom consists mainly in the facts that so short a period has elapsed since the iirst step w...

PLOWING TOURNAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 25 March 1871

PLOWING TOURNAMENT. At Stockton, March 16th and 17th, 1871. Editors Press: —I had the pleasure of being at the meeting of the President and Directors of the San Joaquin Agricultural Society, held before the contest began, at which all seemed to be high-minded, honorable gentlemen, dispelling fears of prejudice or partiality; and giving evidence that an honest effort would be made to deal fairly in the arduous, and too frequently unpleasant duty of umpires. The place selected for the plowing was inside the Fair Grounds, where the earth was of a black adobe, hard tramped, and so dry that there was but little difference between it and a common public road. It was necessary to hitch from six to eight stout mules to a gang of two sulky plows, running about six inchas deep, and twelve inches in width. Entrees and Trials. The entries were A. Ellison, of Muysvillo, two gangs of sulkys, both being neat and strongly built, mostly of wood; but the expressions were that they were too heavy, and...
