1869 - A shrewd Yankee - a Mr. Packard, of Fall River, Mass. - has shown what can be done in the way of wine and silk culture.

Some years ago he bought a ranche of two hundred acres in Santa Barbara, at a dollar an acre. He has now 50,000 vines, producing 20,000 gallons of wine; is engaged in silk culture, last year producing 200,000 cocoons, and is also cultivating the olive.
