GRAPE CULTURE IN ILLINOIS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

GRAPE CULTURE IN ILLINOIS . BY J . A COLMAN . To ( he Editors of the Prairie Farmer : For lite purpose of adding ( though it may be in a small degree ) to the usefulness of your valuable periodical , I subjoin a lew remarks upon the , culture of the grape in Illinois . It has been well ascertained that this our beautiful prairie State is iinequaled in many respects b y any State in the Union , or , in fact , by any part of the world , in the advantages it possesses in the various departments of agriculture , and the raising of stock . Yet there is another branch of business to which the attention of every farmer , and indeed every individual , even if he owns but a lot in one of our tovyns , should be directed—and that is the culture of the grape . There is no fruit that repays one so well for the little labor it rec | uires in its cultivation as this . I have been engaged for rather more than four years in the culture of the grape for my own use , and have examined the best authori...

_ K « . ^ ,- « - SHEEP AND THEIR ENEMIES . FENCE . BY JAMES MC COKNELL . To the Editors of the Prairie Farmer : In your October number I see an especial notice of the flock of sheep of Messrs . Bowers and Erio , by George Flower , and claiming for those gentlemen great merit for their enterprize ; so far this is well ; but this is not all—there are other sheep in this county : Messrs . Brown and Smith of Island Grove have , I am informed , 1500 or more ; Messrs . Pickerel and Lane of Mechanicsburg have 1000 to 1200 ; Mr . D . McGinnis of Lick Creek has about 200 ; and in September last Mr . Hoppin brought inlo this neighborhood about 700 fine sheep from Madison county , N . Y . ; in addition to tho above may be added my own flock of about 700 ; ( which would be hard to beat in any country ;) beside these there are a large number of sheep in the hands of farmers for domestic purposes , in flocks of from one hundjed downmaking in the aggregate perhaps 30 , 000 , more or less ; and a v...

GRASSES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

GRASSES . BY J . V : MAN LOVE . To the Editors of the Prairie Farmer : I see that your correspondents , . Cross , Grant , and Newsom , differ in thenviews about-cutting arid saving grass . Since about 1832 I have been mowing annually from 40 to 60 acres of timothy arid other grasses , mnd if my experience is of any benefit in your paper , you can publish this ; if not , no harm is done . / As to the time of sowing , I have been the most fortunate with timothy sown in the fall . I have had some do well sown in the spring . My objection to sowing in the spring is , if a very wet ; season , and sown with oats , the oats are liable to fall and smother the timothy so as to kill it . G rowing in the shade , as it must , it is very tender ; and when it is taken off the ground , especially if it is a dry time , the sun kills uv All the difference , I conceive , between sowing with wheat and oats , is , that oats are more liable to fall than wheat ; consequently it is easier killed with a ho...

AN ADDRESS Delivered before the Union Agricultural Society at Us annual Catlle Show , at Plainfield , JR . Oct . 17 , 1844 , by J . A . WIGHT . * Published by request of the Executive Committee . MR . PRESIDENT AND GENTLEMEN OF THE UNION AGRICULTURAL S OCIETY : No better occasion than this offers to look about us and see what we have accomplished , and what we propose and expect to accomplish . What is indicated by this gathering of people—this bringing together of implements and stock—this comparing of notes and experience ? Why are the labors of the farm suspended , and your hearths for a time deserted ? It is for a purpose of improvement . It is that we have learned that progress is * Lost there should be any danger of nervousness on tho part of any from the apprehension that tho author of i his address is to betho annual orator of tho Society , it is proper to slaw that tho failure of the gentleman who was engaged to deliver tho address was not known until tho first day of tho S...

ON THE EDUCATION OF FARMERS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

ON THE EDUCATION OF FARMERS . BY ISAAC JULIAN , WAYNK CO ., IA . Princes and lords may flourish , or may fade—A breath can make them , as a breath has mode ; But a brave peasantry , then- country s pride , When once destroyed , can never be supplied . GOLDSMITH . To the Editors of tlic Prairie Farmer : Sojourning at this place for a short time , I have had the pleasure of perusing several numbers of your excellent periodical . I had frequently heard of it before , but never saw it till my arrival here . Probably from the fact of my having been guilty of similar imprudences , I have been solicited by one of your . subscribers lo write an article for your pages . Being a native-born Hoosier , twenty one years of age , and a bachelor , I think I am indispuiably a FREEMAN ; and . 1 have concluded to exercise one of my prerogatives , by complying with my friend s request—not doubling that you are aware of your privilege of rejecting what may not suit your purpose .

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT . i > EORIA COMMON SCHOOL CONVENTION . We consider it unnecessary to give at full length the proceedings of the Convention , and being very much crowded with matter for this No ., we shall give only the more important parts . Neither have we room now to present the reasons in favor of the plan adopted by-the Convention . A memorial to the legislature in favor of the plan is lo ; be prepared , which will contain the reasons that operated with the Convention , and that memorial we shall probably pubr lish . We would merely urge the friends of Common School Education to unite as one man in securing the adoption of this plan , and having it put into full , effective operation . It is no time for us to divide our energies , by attempting either greater or . less improvements than are here contemp lated . It will require the united efforts of all who desire improvement in our common school system , to procure the adoption of the following plan , and if we...

WINTER IS COMING , [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

WINTER IS COMING , or is it to be the basis of a goodly snow-drift till spring 7 How is the wood pile ? Have you a wood house of any sort well filled with dry wood ? or do you intend lb burn a proportion of snow and water 1 We could ask a thousand questions of this sort , all to the purpose ; but we hope they would be needless . A great many people remark that they can see but little difference in the climate between this and the East whence they emigrated , and as they mean it , it is true—they suffer as much from the cold here as there . Now we can tell any such western man how he can make the winter at least 20 degrees warmer . Let him have all his preparations for winter made before winter comes . Let him have his house tight and warm—plenty of good dry wood—good sheds for his stock , and plenty of feed for them ; and then let him keep a quiet mind with plenty of good reading , and he will find before spring that this is a very warm winter . FOUR THINGS WHICH A MAN MAY DO WHICH ...

PROVISIONS FOR THE LOJJDON MARKET . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

PROVISIONS FOR THE LOJJDON MARKET . We find the following cuts , and extracts from the circular of Messrs . Hitchcock , Livingston , & Co ., Commission Merchants , Courtlandt street , N . Y ., in the New York Tribune . It is issued for the use of the friends of the above named firm in the West . It is perhaps known to our readers that , the export of provisions , from this country to Great Britain , is on the increase pretty rapidly , and will be very much more increased , so soon as the articles intended for their use are put up to suit the market . We have two objects in view , in republishing this article : one is to further the object of those issuing it ; and another to show to such of our readers as are not informed on that point , the relative value of the different pieces of beef . A great many have yet to learn , that one piece is not just as good as another ; or that it is not true , that it is onl y requisite that a beef animal should bptfat . If we know preci...

A MAN OF TASTE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

A MAN OF TASTE . An old friend of ours sent us the following note a few days since . It explains itself . We admire his discernment . Mr . Prairie Farmer : Dear Sir—I send you this letter by a gentleman , and also one dollar . The reason why , is this . I received a letter from my sister in the State of New York , a few weeks ago , in which she requested me to send her a fashionable periodical , such as the Ladies Companion , Miss Leslie s Magazine , or the Lady s Book . Now as your paper is the most fashionable periodical in tho West , I concluded to send her that , on the principle that we should support the literature of our own section of country . CATTLE SHOW OF THE PEORIA SOCIETY . —We learn from the Free Press that this Cattle Show came off on tho 2 Cth of September . It was well attended and the interest appears to have been well sustained . Among the articles exhibited was a newly invented scraper , the patent of Mr . J . Bronson of Sangamon co . One man and a span of horse...

THE POTATOE DISEASE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

THE POTATOE DISEASE . We published , last month , a condensation of much that is written on this absorbing subject ; but none of the theories hazarded in that article seemed lo us very conclusive , or satisfactory . The following , which we find in the New England Farmer , is by a gentleman well qualified to give an opinion ; and we are disposed to accord to his conclusions more faith than to most which are hazarded . At any rale , his recommendation is worthy of trial . The peculiar smell , and the reputed poisonous qualities of this diseased potato , made me nearly certain that it was a species of fungus—a position which 1 think has been confirmed by my examination with the microscope . The appearances which I examined were—First , a nearly black discoloration of the potato , just beJow the skin , penetrating about one sixteenth to one quarter of an inch into the substance , and apparently through the skin , in little black indented tumifactions , like pustules : it is probable th...

—^¦ y . a-: » STOCK FEEDING . To the Editors of the Prairie Farmer : Ask of your correspondents one favor for ine—it is this : whether the mode in use of yard-feeding cattle—say those intended for butcher lo go over the feed first , these to be followed by the farm stock pf cattle , and these b y hogs , each lot removed to fresh feed before another is introduced—is found to combine more advantages than the feeding under shelter . One word about plows . The best we have here are the Jewetts patent . Gary . I see several kinds advertised upon your cover . I want some two or three , and would rather have the best at a higher figure than poor given me . My soil prairie—sandy loam .

AGRICULTURAL ITE 5 IS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

AGRICULTURAL ITE 5 IS . . Sweet Potatoes . The Independence Journal , published in Jackson co . Mo . rejoices over a sweet potatoe grown near there , which is one foot in circumference . We should like to dine upon one end of that potatoe . Sweet potatoes have been plenty in this city this season , grown in our own State , from one hundred to two hundred miles south of this . The Davenport Gazette mentions that they are grown with great facility in that part of Iowa . This is a delicious vegetable , and is worthy of the attention of those whose climate and soil will produce it . Will some one write us in relation to its culture . It would be well to have it more plenty among us . Tlie largest beet yet . The Connecticut Farmers Gazette says that a beet from French seed was raised this season by Mr . James Broussard of Louisiana , which weighed 97 lbs ! We have seen them of 25 lbs . weight—but 97 lbs !! The Sheep War . A pretty fierce contest appears to be at present waged in the East...

A WORD TO CORRESPONDENTS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1844

A WORD TO CORRESPONDENTS . Perhaps some of our correspondents think we are growing careless of their aid , and that their services are not appreciated , because they have not been noticed as particularly the past year as formerly . If there be any such , wo assure them they are in error . Never were we more sensible of the necessity of their help , never more grateful for it , than now . But the truth is , at the finishing up of every number , there has been such a press of matter we had to refuse admittance to several articles , very well in themselves , but not of practical value , and among these have been notices to correspondents . We have been highly gratified in welcoming to our pages many new writers , several of superior ability , and almost without exception practical farmers . We hope they will be steadfast friends , and favor us with frequent articles . . Many of those who have hitherto written , have continued their aid this year , and We doubly thank them . We hope non...
