YOUNG MEN'S DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1841

YOUNG MENS DEPARTMENT THE YOUNG MEN OF THE WEST , if they take an interest in this paper , are able to make it all the Society could wish ; and by aiding the paper , they would materially benefit themselves . Not only would they be benefited by reading each others communications , but the habits of close observation they would acquire , would be of incalculable advantage . If each one would keep a memorandum book , and carefully note down every thing of importance that fell under his own observation , or the experience of others , as he could obtain it—if he set down with accuracy facts connected with his farming operations , such as the amount of grain sown or planted in a field ; thedates of ploughing , sowing and harvesting , with occasional notes of the appearance of the crops ; the date of birth of animals , and other matters of a similar character , he would doubtless derive much pleasure and profit from subsequent examinations of it . There would then be no guess work , and i...

HOUSEHOLD DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1841

HOUSEHOLD DEPARTMENT . INMAN CORN , OH GRAIN OF ANY KIND , WHICH IS MUSTY , REMEDY FOR . —Immerse it in boiling water , and let it remain till the water becomes cold . The quantity of water should be at least double the quantity of corn to be purified . —JV . Eng . Farmer . CURINS OF H AMS . —The article called pyroligneous acid , ( or essence of smoke ) is much used in the curing of hams , and is preferable to the usual mode , in being a great saving sf trouble and expense , and ( as we think ) favors the quality also . Our mode is as follows : afterthehams have been three or four weeks in salt and pickle , take three pints of the acid to ope barrel of hams , and mingle it in the barrel with the pickle and salt , and let the hams lie therein for three or . four weeks . — They must then be washedoff and hung up in a garret , or other dry place . They improve fast by age , and keep sweet in the hottest weather . ¦ After four years experience We can safely recommend this mode . —Long ...

Editor;—You have ere this perhaps come to the conclusion that I- have forgotten that such a paper as The Union Agriculturist exists ; or that I am no friend to its existence ; I confess thatl have been very remiss ; it has not however been through indifference to its prosperity . I fully believe in the utility of agricultural papers , and that one published in our midst can be made highly beneficial to us as an agricultural community . To make it useful practical farmers should contribute to its columns , for it is practical knowledge we want , not theoretical . . You may be assured that the paper will receive my hearty support , so long as it is worthy of the support of any farmer . . I noticed in No . 2 , of the U .

CURE FOR THE BLACK TONGDE . —A handful of fine salt rubbed upon the tongue of a horse that has the black tongue , will cure it , in at the most two applications . It is infallible , and simple and cheap enough . In 1833 , 1 tried it upon four of my own horses , and the stage proprietors cured over 30 horses with it , without one failure . THE POLE E VIL is generally the result of a bruise on the top of the horse s head , which produces a mass of corrupt flesh that keeps ...

Editor , Sir , —Your communication , which seems to have been mailed on the 29 th October , did not come to hand till November lf . th . It was directed to Oswego , which is not my post office , where it might have been till William the Norman s Day of Doom . Accidentally , however , it came to hand , inforriiing me of my appointment by a meeting of the Agricultural Society at Naperville , to draw up , a report upon Horned Cattle , and to read it at another subsequent meeting to be held at Ottawa on the 11 th instant . You will perceive from this , that had I been ever so competent , intellectually and physically , to fulfil the duty , the delay in receiving the resolution has altogether put it out of my power . I thank the Society for the compliment , but I am sure they bestowed it upon an individual very incompetent to the task .

YOUNG MEN'S DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1841

YOUNG MENS DEPARTMENT . YOIJHG MEW S REAPING . —Most young men will occasionally have a spare hour which should be devoted to the improvement of the mind . Were the winter evenings improved as they should be , even if it were impossible to employ any other portion . of their time in reading , the knowledge they would in that time acquire , would be of incalculable benefit , But < £ reading is not profitable—is not learning . The low rates at which numerous literary ? periodical publications are furnished , induce ma ny persons tondot reading to subscribe for one or more of them ; and their time for reading being limited , little or nothing else is examined . It seems to us a great evil , that this kind of publications should have been so increased the last few years . Occasionally something may appear in them of real value ; but thev are chiefly filled with paltry trash , that instead ofbeing of benefit , to the reader , is an absolute injury . It is an injury , for a con...
