FOURTH STREET, BETWEEN J AND K.
This is the oldest-established house of
the kind in Sacramento, and does an ex
tensive business with the interior. There
is no improvement made in goods in his
line that patrons cannot avail themselves
of at any time. Everything in the way of
coffins, caskets, shrouds, etc., pertaining
to undertakers' supplies can be furnished
by him direct from the best Eastern man
ufactories. During 1879 he has received
undertakers' cloth goods — being caskets,
inclosed in cloth and which are kept by no.
one else in the city. He makes a specialty
of trimmings of every description and or
naments in gold, silver and plated-ware,
and particularly directs the attention of
interior dealers and other classes of pur
chasers to the elegance and variety of his
stock of goods, as well as to the quality of
the same. His premises are commodious,
and enables him to keep in stock an im
mense quantity of everything in his line.
Mr. Clark is a gentleman of experience in
'the undertaking business.
A. J. VERMILYA, J STREET, BETWEEN

Undertakers' supplies are mostly bulky
goods, and the storage of such becomes a
question of important consideration, to say
nothing of the freightage of articles of this
class. Mr. Vermilya has ample storage
room at his establishment, and' claims to
carry the largest stock of undertaker's sup

shrouds, etc , and, besides manufacturing, :
keeps the most improved patterns of the \

Eastern manufactories. Of course, this is
done at a less rate than for a longer car
riage to the Bay, This, in connection with
the storage facilities and ease of shipment
accruing to Sacramento, and other advan
tages, enable him to supply the interior
dealers with every line of goods known to
the business, at rates below those at which
they can purchase elsewhere. The sending
of undertaker's supplies from this point to

The business of this establishment has
vastly increased during the year 1S7!». re
quiring additional facilities for manufac

ware has obtained a reputation for excel

ference over all imported stock. It man
ufactures in vitrified stoneware all kinds of
jars, pots and jugs, and in red ware pit
kins, bean ['its, milk pans, flower pots and

also mikes extensively his new patent but- j

The house of Huntington, Hopkins &
Co., Sacramento, the departments of which
are noticed in the review, keeps on hand
constantly great quantities of Cumberland
coal for blacksmiths' use?. Their coal
house it, 40 by 100 feet. It is entered by a
14-foot driveway level with the high-grade
street, while the ground floor is level with
the low-grade street. An incline leads j
from the driveway to the ground floor, and
a road to the alley, and thence to the high
era thus rendering the delivery of coal
into the warehouse and the taking of it out
a matter of comparative ease. Great quan
tities of coal are sold by the house by car
had lots, which do not come to the ware
house at all, but upon receipt of shipments
are forwarded without unloading, to till j
orders. Much of the coal handled by the
firm is what is known as cask coal, and is
stored by the hundreds of casks in their
immense storehouse. When the bunkers
each side of the entrance and incline are
rilled with coal, a thousand tons being
stored on either baud, room is still further
I economized by storing coal in casks, they
being piled upon the top.

AGENCY S'rrFiEBAKKR BROS. WAGON MAN
This agency is located on J street, be
tween Second and Third. The Studebaker
Company is known in all quarters of the
globe, and any attempt to describe it here,
and i the character of its works, would be
superfluous. The works turn out wagons,
buggies, carriages, etc., of every possible
variety. The Messrs. Studebaker make
more wagons, carriages, buggies and vehi
cles of every description' than any single
company in the world. They manufacture
anything from the lightest track sulky to
to the finest landau, and from alight spring
wagon to a ten-mule team wagon. The
works are located at Soutu Bend, Indiana,
and are one of the industrial triumphs of
the age. A grand total of its manufacture
is 100,390 vehicles for the decade closing
with the end of 1877. Where vast capital
is thus invested rapidity of transaction is a
necessity, and the consequence is that
goods are sold at a lower rate of profit than
is possible by more limited concerns. . At
the Sacramento depot may be seen and
procured any work in whole or duplicate
made at the great works in South Bend.
It is the agency also for the genuine Sarven
patent wheel. It has extensive ware
rooms ou Third street also. The agency
here has a very large and constantly grow
ing interior trade. The business of Stude
baker Bros, is a gigantic one, and of world
wide reputation. This has been at
tained by the manufacture of wheels of
the highest worth and the result of mature
experience, tli2 best mechanical intelli
gence and industry, strict economy, hon
esty and integrity, which form the very
1 soul of commercial industrial character.
The ' agency keeps " commercial travelers
constantly in the field, and their report up
to December Kith is that there is a unan
imous sentiment throughout Nevada,
northern and interior California in favor of
trading with Sacramento as a supply cen
ter. So universal is this that it has ex
cited the surprise of the traveling agents
that it should so prevail in all communities,
and especially in some which heretofore
traded but little or none in this market. .
B. M. BERNARD, CORNER SIXTH AND L
Mr. Bernard is the oldest manufacturer
! of buggies on the Pacific coast — he is the
patriarch of the business here. He has an
especial trade in the State of Nevada,
which rapidly expands. .He is placed
in constant and bitter competition with
Eastern houses, but with indomitable pluck
he maintains his position against strong
odds, the reason being found in the supe
riority of his work and the personal super
vision he gives to every piece turned out.
His chief business is the filling of special
orders. He has his largest trade fa the
State of Nevada. Mr. Bernard has taken
seven gold and eleven silver medals, and
one hundred and three first-class premiums.
He is now making, a specialty of what is
called a backboard buggy, built upon the
principle of the buekboard, but mounted
with eight springs, and sells it no higher
than the ordinary buekboard. It will bear
and carry 650 pounds weight. He puts up
baggies and carriages of the most modern
pattern to order, and his capacities for
business are such that there is no kind of an
order which can be made upon his establish
ment which he cannot readily fill. At the
recent State Fair of the State of Nevada
Mr. Bernard's work swept the field for
all choice premiums on buggies, phaetons,
j carriages, etc., with the Society's gold
j medal for the most meritorious exhibition.

VILLE, LOS ANGELES. '*',■'
The Pioneer Box Factory, the most ex
tensive in the interior if not in the State,
occupies a two-story brick basement 73 by
04 feet, corner of Front and M streets,
Sacramento. It has the latest styles of
improved machinery for all kinds of box
work and all machinery for printing in
colors in wood, an art Cooke & Son prac
tice to perfection. The capacity* of the
home works is $,000 fruit boxes per ten
hours. .The house was established in 1874.
In the spring of IS7S, to accommodate the
mountain trade, branch works were erected
at Newcastle, Placer county. In February,
1870, a manufacturing branch was put up
at Alta, Placer county, in answer to the
heavy demands upon the capacity of the
factory at Sacramento. This branch has
recently been much enlarged. Branches of
the factory have been established at Vaca
ville, Solano county, and at Los Angeles.
The factory competes with ease with all
rivals in other places, its nearness to the
mountain lumber supply, and the dryness
of the climate at .Sacramento, rendering
the boxes best for all climates and
vastly superior to those made in most
climates. Boxes are shipped to San Diego,
Los Ange'es, Tulare, Fresno, San Bernar
dino, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Alameda, San
Joaquin, Santa Clara, Amador, El Dorado,
Placer, Sutter, Batte, Tehama, I Solano,
Yolo, Yuba, N'a[»a, and to Virginia City, ,
Nev., and Salt Lake,' Utah and other
points. Nearly 3,000,000 feet of mountain
lumber was used by the factory last season.
The business of the firm led it in 1877 to
examine into the origin and habits of the
codling moth or apple worm, which has
proved so terribly destructive to our fruit
interests. The result has been a thorough
investigation, which has placed the
Cookes anion!: the most prominent of the
benefactors of horticulture. .The firm Eells
its own improved boxes and crates, notably
the "Challenge Crate." They are agents
for Geo. .W. Swan U Co. 'a, San Francisco,
grape and berry baskets. - The location of
the. factory is admirable, being upon, the
water and railroad front, by which a saving
of at least $1 per thousand feet of lumber
is made. It has furnished four fifths of the
boxes and crates for . fruit and vegetable
shipment 'from Sacramento, and for ? the
fruit shipped overland.

running actively. Messrs. Pearson & Co.
make a specialty of supplying the interior
at all points, which they claim to be able
to do on a par with the most favored houses

quarters for the last twenty years. The
*-..«*».- i * . . - --_.„.-.,.,.. „ .< ... ..
doctor "is* provided with" the best imple
ments useful in his art, and in operative
dentistry in all its branches is entirely sue-'

ful assistants, who are 'competent to
perform the most difficult operations, j He
makes a specialty of correcting irregulari
ties of the teeth, and removing teeth of
children that are liable to injure the second
set. Teeth irregularly arranged or inter
fering with each other not only disfigure
but are liable to decay. All these, and
similar defects, the doctor treats with the
most perfect skill. A long experience ena
bles him to perform the severest operations
with the least possible pain to the patient. '
In the painless extraction of teeth, or other
operations, Dr. Pierson employs, with per

WHEELER A.D WILSON MANUFACTURING
COMPANY, 017 J STREET.
In reviewing the sewing machine busi
ness of our State and immediate locality,
there cannot be passed by the wonderful
new No. 8 Wheeler & Wilson sewing ma
chine. The company having been before
the public upwards of twenty-five years,
adding each year new and important im
provements, it would seem that they had
at last readied the acme of perfection in
their new No. 8 machine. To see this
marvelous piece of sewing mechanism,
without any extra attachment, darn up a
hole or put on a patch, in any kind of ma
terial, is of itself a wonder ; anil when we
consider that a buttonhole attachment,
simple, practical and durable is about
ready for the new No. S. we may well ask,
" Will wonders ever cease." The company
works occupy an area of , over seven acres,
and employ over 1,000 operatives. Last
July their orders exceeded the capacity of
the company to fill over 85,000 ; and to
day it is impossible to procure machines
enough on this oast to supply
the "rapidly increasing demand. .Mr.
J. C. Bartlett, No. 20 . Geary
street, San Francisco, is the resident man
ager for the Pacific coast; and to his energy
and executive ability, the Wheeler & Wil
son Company owe the fact that their busi
ness has increased fifty per cent, under his
The Sacramento branch is under the M im
mediate supervision of Mr. K. H. Emery,
an expert in the use of the machine, and a
gentleman who guarantees satisfaction to
purchasers of this popular machine. Let
people call in upon, him at 017 J street,
Sacramento, and they will go away, feeling
that for ease 1 of operation, beauty of
construction, finish, adaptability to a
greater range of work than any other, it is
as claimed the best sewing apparatus in the
world. The Mechanics' b tore of this city
is now running fifteen No. S's, by steam
power, and the machines are giving perfect
satisfaction to that exacting house. It is
worth while to devote an hour to a visit to

THE SINGER SEWING MACHINE AGENCY,
E. B. PALMER, MANAGER. .
The. Singer Sewing Machine Company
can bear testimony to the advantages of the
Sacramento market. The branch agency is
at 411 J street. The immense popularity
of this machine is shown by the fact that
during the year just closed their already
enormous sales increased fully 30 per cent.,
and were checked only by the supply of
machines running out — the demand ex
ceeding the supply. The Sacramento branch
establishment, under, the superintendence
of Mr. E. B. Palmer, controls the following
counties, viz : Sacramento, Yolo, Colusa,
Sutter,' Yuba, Placer, Butte, El Dorado and
Amador. His canvassing agents visit every
town and almost every house in these
counties. Tnis company continues to sell
on easy monthly installments. The fea
tures of this machine need not be here de
scribed in detail ; suffice it to say it com
bines every device' and improvement which
experience, money and skill can add. The
Sacramento agency will in a few days have
in hand a full stock of the new machines of
