AUE OF APPLE TREKS—DO NATURAL TREES OUTLIVE THE ft RAFTED ? [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 November 1844

AUE OF APPLE TREKS—DO NATURAL TREES OUTLIVE THE ft RAFTED ? Front the New York Observer . Apple trees livedo a great age . There is a tree on Peak s Island , in Portland Harbor , that has been known to bear fruit every season for more than a hundred-years . The above paragraph was in your summary of last week ; and as I observe you have a small agricultural department iu your paper , I take the liberty of submitting a few remarks suggested by the above extract . The fact stated is unquestionable . I can-well remember when it was a common thing to see apple trcea not only of vast age , but of immense stature . When I was but a child , I can distinctly recollect the remains of an orchard on my father s farm , the principal part , of which the British had cut down for fuel . Eight or ten trees only remained , a venerable cluster in one comer ol the field . Ainuist every tree was not far from two feet in diameter , and in form more like the lolly and wide-spread oak , than our present a...

HOW TO MANAGE TREES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 November 1844

HOW TO MANAGE TREES . To tile Editors of the Prairie Farmer : I have lately been confined to my house from illness , so I procured nine of your last numbers , belonging to a neighbor , to look over in succession , for the sake of whiling away the idle hours , and I must say I have been edified and delighted ; and one source of pleasure was to find myself in the great valley of the fur West , surrounded by a goodly number of living authors , whose power of thought and command of language will compete fairly with many of the veteran quill-drivers of the age . Some of your correspondents bring their little budget of items , so well selected and condensed , that the reader regrets that they are so brief , or hopes they will return again with a fresh supply . This class of correspondents ought to be encouraged . You speak of circulating 3000 copies ; they must appear quite a pile in your office , though to us in the country , who call at twenty or thirty housand and find scarcely one , w...

APPLES WITHOUT SEED OR COKE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 November 1844

APPLES WITHOUT SEED OR COKE . Wc have seen a paragraph traveling about , describing a new sort of apples without seed or core . It is no unusual thing to find an apple without seeds or indeed without much of a core—but this was the beginning of a new race that never was lo produce one or the other , but was to be propagated by the potent influence of a particular somehow . We were careful not . to copy il , for we thought we saw in it the full development of a humbug . In the Cultivator for October , the thing is alluded to in a communication which may help us lo understand similar discoveries in ad vance . Humbuggery and marvel are afloat , again , with the story about app I ( . s without seeds and cores , half sour and half sweet , & c . These stories make a periodical advent about every five years . - I well remember when a hoy , ( but I dont say how many scores of years ago that was , ) a man came to our house to bottom chairs ; and while he was busy with the split a...

The Doctor advised that another calf , of known health , be procured , and put under a course of treatment , with the same species of water . But during this time , the first seep that , afforded the water had dried up ; and water was taken from the well of Mr . Tweedy , and poured on the place where the first water was procured . It stood about 48 hours , and then taken ; and half a gallon was given to a very healthy calf , and in 24 hours more , about three pints in addition . In 48 hours from the time the first water was given , the calf was so completely Milk Sick , that il could not be driven one hundred yards by any means whatever ; and trembles in such a manner as to be scarcely able , ( to all appearance , ) to bear its own weight .

THE POTATO !! DISEASE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 November 1844

THE POTATO !! DISEASE . The destruction of potatoes by some epidemic whoso cause is Unknown , appears to be much more extensive and destructive than last year . It prevails in Great Britain , Ireland , France , Germany , Holland , and Russia . In our own country it prevails in various sections of the eastern States , say in New York , Vermont , New Hampshire , Connecticut , and Massachusetts , and as far west as Ohio ; and if we are to believe the destruction as general as is to be inferred from the generality of the complaint , the loss to the country must be immense . Some idea may bo had of the nature of it and its ravages , by the following extracts from various sources . In relation to its cause , wc see it stated of late by some writer , that he had discovered an insect in the stalk while the poiatoc was healthy . If so , that must he the commencement of the attack ; and there would be the place , if practicable , to apply the remedy . A writer hi a laid number of the tJtica G...
