CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. WEDNESDAY AUGUST 5, 1874. Fruit Drying—--How it is Done. As we shall soon have a fruit-drying establishment conducted on the Alden process in this city, a brief description of the mode by which the f>uit is dried may be found of interest to the people of this valley. Tbe Alden pro cess is based on purely scientitlc prin ciples. Its treatment of the fruit is simply pneumatic evaporation of tbe water it contains. The Starch and sugar of the fruit is retained and the article rendered decay - proof. The Alden preserved fruits are essentially fresh, and they remain so for years. We have seen specimens of Alden dried corn, peas, nectarines, pump kins, squashes and apples, which after being placed in water a short time, as sumed just the shape and resumed just the flavor possessed before being submitted to the drying process. In drying the water alone is removed from the fruit, hence a little water restores the dried fruit to its original shape and flavor. We cannot go Into a description of the Alden Pneumatic Evaporator. What It does will be of more interest. The following figures are given as the product of what is called a number two evaporator, in twenty-two hours' work: Apples, 360 pounds; apricots, 450 pounds; sweet corn, 450 pounds; pears, 300 pounds; peeled peaches, 300 pounds. Total, 1,950 pounds of dried or evaporated fruit in one day. This seems incredi ble, yet the fact is well authenticated. This fruit was not, like tho ordinary kiln or sun-dried fruit, liable to mould or decay. It could do neither, for all the water it contained was entirely removed. The Alden process will, at a cost of not exceeding three cents per pound, turn out an article of prune far superior to that now imported. Think what may be done with a single acre of the broad area now uncultivated in California. Two hundred and twenty two trees may be planted on a single acre; at five years old from the bud, each of these trees will bear two hun dred pounds. This gives 15,200 pounds to the acre of preserved prunes worth, at twenty cents per pound, $3,040—a grand yield for a single acre of land. But it is to the raisin man ufactured by the Alden process that we would call particular attention, be cause we already produce an immense quantity of grapes In this valley. Mr. Davis, the owner of the right for this county, has samples of the Alden manufactured raisins that will aston ish all who examine them. They are made from all kinds of grapes. The common California grape makes a fine article of raisin, but the raisin manu factured from a superior grape excels in beauty, size and flavor anything we have ever seen. Those of our citizens who think of digging up their vine yards will do well to pause. The bus iness Mr. Davis is about to inaugu rate will furnish a market for all grapes grown in this valley. Not a Prophet. The Kern County Courier lays it down as a fact that the Los An geles and Independence railroad will never be built. The exact amount and precise weight of evidence on which this prophecy is based we can not of course determine, but we are sure that it is not of that ponderous character that will carry dismay and despair to tlie people of Los Angeles and Independence. The opinion of the Courier on this matter is worth only what is usually accorded to a person who is addicted to the habit of letting his prejudice or preference cloud and often obscure his judgment. The people of Kern county would like very much to turn the bullion trade or the Inyo county mines, into the head of the San Joaquin Valley. It is a natural desire and we have noth ing to say against it, nor is the Courier to be condemned for expressing a con viction that it hopes will be realized. Bit when it makes the unqualified assertion that the Los Angeles and Independence railroad will never be built, it is placing itself iv a position which may lead to its conviction and cremation as a witch or a false prophet. We are confident the road will be built. There is no argument to be adduced in favor of a branch road from the Southern Pacific to the Cerro Gordo mines. The enormous freight which the long distance by rail would impose on the shipper would be but a slight improvement on the present wagon transportation. The road which will most benefit the couutry is the one that reaches the sea by the most practicable route, and the surveys already made demonstrate that the Cajon Pass route is the most practical for the Los Angeles and Inde pendence road. It is by that route that a road will pay, and it is by that route tbe road will be built. The Beecheb-Tilton controversy is still warm, but develops no new features. There is a vast amount of talk, and a great many remarks and speeches are attributed to the parties most interested; yet it is more than probable that the lady or either |of the gentlemen have not said one word where newspaper reporters have made them say a thousand. Tilton has been arrested for libel and discharged, but nothing important hangs thereby, as his release was no doubt the work of friends. So much verbiage aud nonsense has been set afloat that the public mind Is not justifleJ in believ ing anything said relative to tbe scan dal unless it is sustained by affidavit. Mr. Beecher's statement isaqxlously looked for. On It will be based the verdict of tho public. If ho avows himself innocent of tho charges pre ferred by Tilton, no amount ofasser vation to the contrary will Induce the people to believe him guilty. Petroleum. Chris. Leamino, Recorder in the San Fernando oil mining district, came to the city yesterday and brings the gratifying information that the well boring company have struck oil of a fine quality at a depth of eighty feet. They pump three or four bar rels a day out of tho well, which is of course thrown away, as the oil will be mixed with sand, etc., so long as the diill continues to work. The opera tives are confident they will have over a hundred barrels aday in a very short time, as every indication is favorable. There is trouble among those gen tlemen who manage or mismanage the State University. Gilman is ac credited with intriguing for the dis missal of Professor Carr. We do not assume to judge of the merits of tho9e two professors. They are no doubt good men in their way. But the State could perhaps do without both of them. The State University has cost the people a vast sum of money, and they have as yet received but a slight return for it. The management of the University has not been entirely sat isfactory, and a few changes could not make things worse, wh'le they might show a decided improvement. Bro. Oilman should have a care, lest while he is attempting to crush Prof. Carr he may be crushed himself. Carr is the better man of the two, and he cer tainly has more generally tbe confi dence of the people of California. Pacific Coast Items. The Vallejo shipbuilders are mak ing good progress upon their new schooner. Tbe salaries of State officers and at taches forthe mouth of July amounted to $23,1)00. Six divorces were granted at Sacra mento last month, and twenty-three marriage licensee were issued. Volume 46 of tbe Supreme Court Reports have been printed, bound aud delivered to the Secretary of State. In the Stockton warehouse wheat is accumulating quite rapidly. One man alone has secured storage for y,OOO tons. Wild grape vines grow in abundance along the creeks in Lake county, climbing and surrounding good-sized trees. The San Joaquin Valley Railroad is now open to Kern river, and tbe train from Stockton went through Friday night for the first time. Local Option is thought to be a dead letter at Sacramento. It is believed that no new petition will receive tbe requisite number of signatures. During the past week 630 tons of fruit and vegetables were shipped from Sacramento for the markets tlie other side of tbe .Sierras aud the East. The grain harvest in Solano county is being rapidly finished, and ma chines are every day retiring from the fields and being laid up for the season. It is reported that a large number of sheep near Sacramento are troubled with a species of epizootic. Some cats also appear to be affected in a similar manner. Wheat in Santa Clara county, as far as harvested, is every where up to ex pectations. In places where it was supposed to be ruined, it will yield at least an average crop. Messrs. Wilcox and Capron's new steam yacht Cuyamaca has arrived at San Diego from San Francisco. She will be used as a pleasure boat in the bay, and is powerful enough for tow ing purposes. At a meeting of the Directors of the Stanislaus Agricultural Society, held in Modesto July 17th, it was ordered that the tenth annual exhibition be held at Modesto on the loth, 16th, 17th and 18th of September. It is reported that Mr. Frieselden of Oroville paid $70,000 for the Gluckauf ranch, stock, crops, and everything on the premises. The rauch contains 1,500 acres of land, and is located at the junction of tbe Feather river and Houcut. Martin Rancich, restaurateur of Sac ramento, a few days ago received from his father in Austria, now aged 102 years, a letter, tbe handwriting of which was as plain and perfect as though tbe writer was merely in the prime of life. Under-Sheriff Aull and Mr. Bucker, of Modesto, were bathing in the Tu olumne river last week, when the former was taken suddenly ill and lost all power of propulsion. Mr. Bucker went to his assistance, but both being greatly exhausted, their escape from drowning was a narrow one. The Mammoth Grove of Calaveras is now owned by James L. Sperry, Marquis E. De Briges and Wm. A. Keefer, the firm being styled Sperry, Keefer & Co. The property consists of bOO acres at the Mammoth Grove and 13,000 at the South Grove, four miles distant in a direct line. Tbe smelting works at Sacramento have been thoroughly overhauled, and it is expected that they will be run ning again soon. A parcel of land has been laid off on which to erect fur naces for separating works, and the work of erecting these furnaces will be commenced the first of the ensuing week. Nevada Items. About 2,000 sheep are being pas tured on the western slope of Mt. Da vidson. A "wild woman" haunts the out skirts of Virginia City. Supposed to be insane. Forty or sixty men are engaged in prospecting for smelting ores in and about Silver Lake District. A man in Crown Point Ravine beat his wife Wednesday night and tore her dress off. She had him arrested. A drunken Chinaman committed an indecent assault on a little girl at Gold Hill Wednesday evening, and the father of the child punished him very severely. The shutting down of the Crown Point hoisting works, for the purpose of putting in new machinery, atlbrds an opportunity for overhauling and repairing the mills of that company. Latest Telegrams.
