It is stran ge to me how men can he induced to make such locations ; for even if they are young and without children , who ever heard of a married couple remaining so in Illinois . Although we have an abundance of land called barrens , it is forbidden b y nature that such women should live hereabouts . The land of the Fox River valley is of extreme fertility , and particularly on the west side , a fine , dry , rolling surface , in some places gravelly ; but on this side there is but little limber , which makes it . inconvenient—for there ate no bridges , and sometimes no fording . On the cast side I do not like ( he land generally so well , but the greater convenience of timber makes up ( or dial .

8 UUJI 2 CTS OF ATTExNTION FOlfOUK IAKMKllS . There arc particular subjects which fur the time being occupy the attention of the farming public , much to the exclusion of others . The one which has more-prominence at present than any other is that of sheep . This is particularly true of the West . But it is evident that there are others which demand attention as imperiously as this . Wool iriay be a leading , but it can never be an exclusive interest with us , nor ought it to be ,. Our productions are , and ought to be , various . We go in agriculture as in hiorals , for individualism . Among these various interests there are a few which we will name , as claiming particular attention at the present time , and to which we intend as far as we can to give prominence in our journal , and which we hope our correspondents will remember . Some of them we have called attention to before , but it will do no harm to repeat . First among them stands the growing of feed for stock . The wild gr...

¦ . Ji ^ , ^ - > t , i ¦ —rSMUT . Professor Johnstbninalecturc lately delivered before the Chemistry Association-, remarked that tho sporulcs of . f his fungus are so exceedingly minute that it would take 2800 of tlicrn to cover an inch . There is no doubt , ho says , but . that they ascend through the sap vessels of the plant—for by examination it could be seen where they bad-come up ; having left their coloring matter in the tubes of the stalks . After passing through the stalk , the smut fixes itself under the root of the flower , which it rentiers barren ; and as the grain ripens , the puff balls ripen also , and burst ; scattering a black dust , so miiiutc that it takes 1 , 100 , 000 of them to lie across a single inch . • ., . ¦ , It may thus be seen how smut is propagated . Its panicles are so small that thousands of them may attach to a kernel of wheat unobserved , and be sown with it .. Various substances will destroy its vegetating power , among which are blue v...

GROWTH Of CARROLL COUNTV-AG . PAPERS . [ For ( lie Prairie Farmer . BY Ij . H . DOWIiN . , , , ; , MESSRS . EDITORS : Since the first , number of your paper was issued I have fell ( as . I suppose many do ) a much deeper interest in its circulation than my efforts would indicate . . Our county is among the smallest and : last peopled ^ and organized in the State . In fact , when I came here , in the autumn of 1835 , 1 think there were but six families in what is now the county of Carroll . In June , 1840 , the census showed a population of 102 . 1 ; and the quantity of wheat given in as having been raised ihe preceding year , was a . fraction over 7000 bushels . From an estimate made by those having ihe best opportunities lo judge , I think ( he quanti ty produced the past year , exceeds 150 , 000 bushels ; and the present population is estimated at 2500 .

( DAljf THE BUST BUTTER NND CHEESE BE MADE FROM PRAIRIE GRASS ? It is common folicarfarmers say that ilcan ; but it is a question—how great is their liability , lo be mistaken ? A fair article is quite liable to pass for a superior one ,- while the judge has orily a sample of the former before him ; especially if considerable lime has elapsed since he has had a betlcr opportunity to make the crjriipafisoti . That the wild grass of the prairies : differs considciablyt in its effects upon cattle feeding upon it , all who have had any experience know . In the eastern-States ,-it is always necessary to keep working teams at hay till the spring s work is done . ; but here no such caution is necessary . Cattle reduced , by the winter to the very verge of being picked by crows , are not only put to work with safety , when fed only on the young 1 grass of the prairies , but will soon become fat upon it . • - In a market like this , there is a pretty good chance to test the question ; and if...

I have been a subscriber from the first , and have read your paper and watched its development , and I , declare to you that it is not half so interesting and instrucfive to me now as it was when it abounded in those short , practical contributions from the farmers . What is flic cause of this falling off ? Is it because you do not urge and coax as much as formerly ? Or is it because you have no reviewer ? By the way , I perceive ourold reveiwer Incog , otherwise Dr . Knapp , is in Laporlc , lecturing . Has lie gone there to reside , 01 only lo give a course of lectures ?

FOOT ROT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

FOOT ROT . Wo have understood that a flock of sheep in this region is suffering from fool rot the present season . The remedy is to pare the hoof , remove the ulcerous matter , and apply with a swab water strongly saturated with pulverized blue vitriol . If thoroughly done the foot will be healed in four or five days . Above is the cut of a rack in which to place the sheep operated upon . We take it from a former volume of the Cultivator . The mode of operating ; is as follows : , ¦ The cut : represents a trough , which will conveniently hold two sheep , with their feet uppermost—the frame simply consists of a plank about six feet in length , in which four logs are fastened eighteen inches long ; six- arms arc extended from the upper side of ihe frame , which supports the side boards A , A , six feet long and thirteen inches wide , and forms a trough about one foot in width at the top , and four inches at . the bottom ; ibis trough should stand one end near the door of another dry y...

NECESSITY OF BETTER CULTIVATION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

NECESSITY OF BETTER CULTIVATION . - It is the remark of strangers who come among us , that , our western farm management is extremely wasteful and slovenly . We suppose that the greater number of those from whose example this inference is drawn , are those whom rio words of ours will reach—that they arc those—of whom some think . book farming a bad affair ; and others for some reason object to agricultural papers—for we do ourselves the flattery to think that in the . main our subscribers , aro . among the best of our , farmers . Nevertheless , , we . suppose there is plenty of room for advance among the whole body of those engaged in rural a flairs . . To produce the general carelessness visible in our mode of operation , three main causes conspire . Two of them exist for a time , of necessity—the other is the seed of all profligacy . This last is the feeling that wo are in a land of plenty and can afford to . wasfc . The soil is rich , and therefore can never bo exhausted ! land i...

THE LAUCII . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

THE LAUCII . The species of this tree known among us , is called tamerack . or hackmatack ; which is common , in Canada , in the eastern States , in Michigan , and if we mistake not , is quite plenty in Wisconsin . The lameraek is a tree highly valued in some sections of country , being used in Maine for ship building and various oilier purposes . It grows entirel y straight to the height of a hundred feet , and is more durable than pine or spruce . The European larch is , however , as we suspect , a much , more , valuable tree ; and if it will bear acclimating—which we . see no reason to doubt- ^ would certainly be worthy of cultivation with us . Prom a communication to the Albany Cultivator , by J . J . Thomas Esq , . we learn that the trial of its cultivation is making in western New York , but with what success we do not learn . In Scotland , where it has been much grown ,-it is very highly valued . The heart-wood of this larch—which in other resinous trees does not form till af...

ILLINOIS vs . TENNESSEE FOR SHEEP . We perceive that the little note which we published some time since from Hon . J . : • • Skinner and the letter from J . Mahard Esq . on the subject of western wool growing have attracted attention south ol us . Tennessee puts in the claim vigorously for the best sheep walks . Mr . Skinner s opinion as published by us carried that point , still further south , but by his letter to the Tennessee Agriculturist published below , it will be seen that ho is willing to include Tennessee . For ourselves we will not quarrel about the best sheep walks . We answer inquiries of this sort as a friend of ours answered a similar one . He was building a house which he had p lanned on a scale of great convenience and was making his arrangements about it with much taste , wli , en a neig hbor says to him : .
