Geese and Goslings and tlieir Management [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Geese and Goslings and tlieir Management Geese set four weeks , the goslings breaking the shell on the 28 th , 29 th arid 30 th days . . They should remain on the nest as long as they like , and require but little food for threp or four days :. Crusts of bread soaked in milk , is better food than Indian meal—the latter seeming to soiir in their crops . If the weather is pleasant , they may go to pasture , but it generally necessary to keep them separate from - . other geese at first ,, as the ganders are apt to weary them by excessive attention . A good pond furnishes the best water , but it is not a necessity in rearing geeso .. A shallow vessel , frequently supplied with fresh water , should be provided for the goslings at times , though they are better off shut away from it some portion ofthe day . Too much . dabbling in water in jures them . . It is important to have a good , warm , dry shelter for the young geese , especially -while the cool-nights continue , until they they be...

Cleaning Seed Wheat , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Cleaning Seed Wheat , John Johnston of Geneva , one of the most thorough and successful farmers in this conntry , as all our readers know , says that he quit raising chess twentyeight years ago—by never sowing it . He has not raised a bushel of it in all that long period on his extensive wheat farm . Thirty-seven years ago he obtained eight bushels of chess in every hundred of wheat . His mode of cleaning seed is the same in substance that we have practiced thirty years ago , but will bear repetition , and we therefore give it as recently described by him : * My plan is to take out the fanningmill riddles , some call them screens ; I call the lower one only a screen—it takes out mustard seed and cockle in part . After tho riddles are out , take off the shaking rod , or at least the one nearest the wings or fans ; then let one man turn the wings or fans by the crank or handle , as usual ; let another pour the wheat into the hopper from a basket or any other vessel—a tin-pail answers ...

Tlie Potato Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Tlie Potato Crop . Editor of the Farmer : —Tho papers in the Northern part of our State and Wisconsin represent the prospect of the -potato crop there as good . In the South part of the State the -prospect is only tolerable , and in the American Bottom , from whence the great supply of potatoes was usually raised for the St . Louis and Alton markets , and the country bclew , the crop is entirely cut off . In Sangamon county , so far as I have observed , the potato crop planted on rolling ground took well , though I am told the potato fly is doing it much harm . The prospect is that all the potatoes raised in Sangamon county will bring a good price , and our farmers would do well to save their whole crop . To do this , they must be dug in season , and if saved on the ground , they should be . well covered . Our farmers have lost thousands of dollars b y having their potatoes frozen . Last year many were lost . In the fall they could not be had at less than forty and fifty cents per b...

Night Air—Seasonable Hints . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Night Air—Seasonable Hints . During the months of September and October , throughout the United States , wherever there are chills , and fever and ague , intermittents , or the more deadly forms of fever , it is a pernicious , and even dangerous practice , to sleep with the outer doors or windows open ; because miasm , marsh emanations , the product of decaying vegetation—all of which are different terms , expressing the same thing—is made so light by heat , that it ascends at once towards the upper portion of atmospheric space , and is not breathed daring the heat of the day , but the cool nights of the fall of the year condense it , make it heavy , and it settles on the ground , is breathed into the lungs , incorporated into the blood ; and if in its concentrated form , as in certain localities near Rome , it canses sickness and death within a few hours . Tho plagues which devastated Eastern countries in earlier ages , were caused by the concentrated emanations from marsh y locali...

Anont Bilking and other Tilings . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Anont Bilking and other Tilings . Editor Farmer : —Your correspondent has touched a very delicate subject , more so , perhaps , thanyou are aware of . In the families of farmers , where the work of the house and farm is done by the family , and where there are brothers and sisters and father and mother , we have no difficulty about milking . When work is not driving on the farm , and when our men people have little to do before breakfast and after supper , and more especially when the weather is bad , snowy , rainy or blowey , they expect to milk , and do it with pleasure ; but when harvest time comes , or when our men have as much or more than they can do in plowing , sowing and planting , indeed , wherever , from any cause , the labor of the farm is severe , requiring the . attention during all working hours , then we do the milking . The difficulty is with hired hands ; —they generall y do as little work as possible , always grumble when they are not surfeited with the best cooki...

Wheat as a Staple . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Wheat as a Staple . Editor of the Farmer : —Iread your article on this subject in the last FABMER , with much interest . I like the bold manner in which you speak out ; but yet I am -sure that our wheat oftener fails in Central Illinois from bad cultivation than from any fault in soil or climate , I agree - with you that it is folly to grow wheat as we have generally done—that is , half plowing the land , sowing late , sowing broadcast , and leaving the ground so that rains will stand upon it . Neither our soil or climate can be , depended on to make crops of wheat under such circumstances .- If farmers , will follow this old plan—if they go on scratching their grounds , sowing their wheat broadcast among weeds and litter—if they wait to sow until in October—and more than ^ all , if ihey . sow on level lands , they will not make a good crop of wheat one year outiof ten * . That s my- opinion . . Now , I stand up for our soil in Central Illinois for mating wheat ; but I would premise...

Corn Cutting Machines , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

Corn Cutting Machines , Editor of tlte Farmer : —I have occasionally seen notices published of corn cutting machines , and , indeed , a machine of this kind received a premium at the last Illinois State Fair . I think the person who entered the machine , gave his residence as Bloomington . . But neither that , or any other corn cutting machine , so far as 1 can learn , has been introduced into practical use . If your knowledge on this subject is different , and there is a corn-cutting machine in use anywhere , please state so in your paper ,-and you will receive the thanks of a good many of your readers . We have our corn huskers now , that perform well , and do up a kind of far mers work that is very laborious . That which I saw on its way to the State , Fair last year , was a cumbrous and expensive machine , hut I think would work well . That you pictured in your last FARMER , strikes us as being more simple and leas expensive- If it will work well , and can bo put at a reasonable...

The Apple Worm . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 October 1858

The Apple Worm . Editor Farmer .-- —Have you noticed the present season the great destruction of apples , caused hv the apple worm ? The fruit is fast falling from the trees , and not a single specimen can be found on the ground in which there is not an apple worm . And I have examined the fruit on the trees , and rarely is it the case that an apple can be found which is not perforated by this worm . - Something must be done , or we shall lose our apples as well hereafter as now . When an apple falls to the ground , the worm soon makes his way out of it , goes into the ground , remains there in winter , goes into the larva state , comes out in the spring in the new form of a miller , crawls up the trees and lays his eggs to form worms , and then has completed his mission . The eggs hatch into -worms , go into the apple , and this process is continued . The mischief is done the present season , the apples are ruined , many have fallen to the ground , and the worm has escaped to mate ...

A Dome Wanted by Every Haa , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1858

A Dome Wanted by Every Haa , For the IlUnoli Farmer . The desire of getting a home in the country , at some future time , is probably the most common that a business man covets . In the din of the city or town , on the broad sea , at the mechanic s bench , in the buzzing manufactory , the conceptions of men as to the-dispdsal of their later years , tend oftenerin this direction than in any other . The poetic sentiment in man , existing often under very rough exteriors , finds its appropriate food in the naturalness of the conntry : the religious sensibilities , if they have less artificial aid and have more of the benefit derived from the illustration of nature ; the quietness of the country is altogether alluring to one s sober days ; the expanse that it affords is the symbol of freedom ; it forms a surer competence , we are satisfied , in the long run , than any other ; and incompetence fares as well , if not better , there than elsewhere . But does actual farm-ing-life reach the ...
