THE POTATOE DISEASE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1845

THE POTATOE DISEASE . Professor Teschemacher has continued his observations opon this disease . We extract from the N . E . Farmer all that is in advance of former discoveiies . I have first to notice the idea that this disease arises from worms which are found in the decayed pmmo-and remark : 1 st . l hat the worms are the same which are found in all rotten potatoes , from whatever cause the decay rmy arise . -a . ihe potato decays previous to the worms appearing for the worms are never found in the sound part of the potato , eating their way in or depositing their eggs , nor have lever seen the worms in that part ofthe potato in which the fungus has alread y commenced vegetating : it is only in the most rotten part that the worms exist , after the fungus has caused this decay . • r Si C- Sal , t > s ! a , m ] y Mils tho worms , as any one may satisfy himself , witli the assistance of the common compound microscope . .

THE HYACINTH . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1845

THE HYACINTH . We have been at the expense of an engraving of this specimen of a beautiful species of plants which we find in the Western Farmer and Gardener , and which we wish to dedicate especially to our female friends , with our New Year s number . We have the hope that it may do something to awaken a love of garden flowers and house plants among this part of our readers . . But what is the use of house plants ? says Farmer Tightfist . Well , we cannot say that they have been of any special use to him ; but perhaps if his wife and daughter * had paid some attention to them , their house would have been a little neater—less smoky—with fewer cobwebs in it , and Farmer Tightfist himself might thereby have been a little cleaner looking , lesstig ht-fisted , and more amiable man . Tho little objects of care about home render it more cheerful—and those of this kind afford a green thing for the eye to rest on , when greenness is merged in staring white . They enkindle affections witho...

ORCHARD AND GARDEN . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1845

ORCHARD AND GARDEN . [ For the Prairie Farmer . PI . ANmu FHUIT TRKIW . Perhaps you remember that when I wrote you last spring , 1 promised . ihal . you should hear from me . occasionally , particularly in reference to the cultivation of fruit nnd fruit trees , in which I am considerably interested . 1 find many of our settlers altogether faithless as lo plaining fruit trees ; and lo me it is auius ihg , as well as vexatious , to listen to the reasons they give for not taking more pains with them . One says the treses grow so fust that , the winter kills them ; another that ; they don t grow at . all ; and a third that the springs arc so frosty and variable , that if the trees could be raised , they wouldnt bear ; while another man says that Mr . Such-a-om ; planted an orchard , and half of cm died the same . summer , and the rest . dont do notllin . Well , let us look at Mr . Such-a-one s orchard : we find it composed of things that grow from apple seeds , probably about four or li...

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1845

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT . BAD LIVERS . Mr . D . Ground of Marine Settlement writes as follows Mr . Farmer : Do you think it is owing to the climate that our stock have baei livers ? 1 do not . I do not kill one beef in ten that has a bad liver ; and I atrbuie it to their being well salted and fed with healthy food . We suppeise that cattle , horses , nnd swine are affected , in different degrees , like persons , by climate ; and ns a bilious one deranges and perhaps destroys the liver in eine case , it may in another . It has been always noticed in this section , that , horses brought from the East do not last well . It is very probable that among other causes of their death , if examination were made , a bad liver would be found frcepient . Death and disease of stock arc not as frequent here now ns formerly ; and those who butcher remark that the livers of animals arc far more healthy . Eight years since , as far as our observation and information extended , not one hog in ten , when...

Others were bred for the same purposes wholly , or combi...

TAKE CAKE OF THE STOCK . During the present , anel tho two succeeding months , it . is important that the greatest care be excrcis d over all the farm slock .

If his liill work was properly done up in . season — if he ; has now plenty eif good wood under cover , hi * cellar properly stocked with eatables—and his mind ihus relieved from cares which do not belong to the season , he can easily do this . There are two ways of wintering stock —one 10 kacp them poor , shivering , nnd eomftirilcss—and lose them , or risk iheir loss , in the spring ; the oilier to keep them fat , warm , and comfortable . Cattle must be : kept warm in one eif two ways : cither by sheltering them , with less feeding , or by increased feeding , without shelter .
