TREATMENT OF SHEEP—SALYINC-r-ANSWER- TO , . INQUIRY IN YOUR LAST * , '; [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

TREATMENT OF SHEEP—SALYINC-r-ANSWER- TO , . INQUIRY IN YOUR LAST * , ; , — i . . ^ . fry ^ = s » . _ ¦ [ For the Prairie Farmer . MESSRS . EDITORS :. In your last paper , I observed a notice of a disease incident to sheep , which has not yet found a name in ibis part of the country . Permit me to say that I believe it to be the same as that known as the dry murrain in the uplands in England . You can draw your pwn . conclusions however of the similarity . In the low lands invEurope this complaint is not -practically known , probably from the fact of thp , oheep never-being , without green esculent food ., The ground is . . seldom covered , with snow so as to prevent the . sheep having access . to the grass , and if it is , they are supplied with turnips ; but inthe high lands where turnips are jiot tpbe : had t the . winter , more severe and . their food necessarily dry hay , the same disease , viz .: a ; total absence of moisture .

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

ORCHARD AND GARDEN . BLIGHT IN TREES . The Western Cultivator contains a paper read by P , ev . II . W . Bceehcr before the Indiana IlOrlicuhural Society on what is usually called fire blight . He thinks the blig hi of the West is not lhat of tho East which is said lo be caused by an insect ( Scolyluspyri . ) The Western blight which he thinks has been felt at the East also , is a far more general and destructive malady . This he thinks , is caused by a vigorous flow of sap and growth of the tree being suddenly arrested by extreme cold weather , which ruptures the sap vessels and deranges ( he circulation- ; causing ( liesap to become acrid and malignant . The following arc . some of the reasons offered for his . theory : . . 1 . The two great blight years throughout this region , 1832 . and 1844 , were preceded by . a summer and fall such as liiave described . In the autumns of both 1831 and 1843 , the orchards were overtaken by a sudden freeze . while in a fresh-growing state ; an...

HOT-BEDS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

HOT-BEDS . I am about to lay down rules for persons who can otlbrd to have . cucumbers in March . This amounts to someiiiing little short of folly in England : in America it would be something worse . But hot-beds , as things of real use , are more necessary in America than England ; because , in the former country , the winter will not suffer to exist in the open air many plants which are wanted to start with the warm sun , and which plants the winter will suffer to exist in the open air in England . The American spring boars no resemblance to that of England , which comes on , by degrees , from the end of February to the beginning of June ; while the American spring cannot be said Jo be of a fortnights duration . There is ,, in fact , no spring ; there is a winter , a summer , and an autumn , but no spring ; and none would ever have been thought of , if the word had hot come from Europe along with many others equall y inapplicable . This sudden transition from a winter which not o...

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT How is HOLLOW HORN PRODUCED ? Wo observe that some of ihe agricultural papers ate discussing this question . One writer contends thatll , is want of feed ; while another asserts lhat it is a fearful disease , and will act in spite of any sort of feeding . We believe there is no doubt but that it is a disease , modified somewhat by the constitution of the animal , and more by climate . It is not a disease of the horns , but of the system , for cattle which have no . horns are as liable to it as any . It is no doubt the effect of tlie animal s taking cold , violently or frequently ; and as colds are themselves a disease , and the cause of disease , differing somewhat in dcvelopement in the human system ; it is reasonable to suppose that the same will be tho case wiih animals . Now what sort of an animal is most likely to take cold ? for here is the whole g ist , of the matter . Will it be most likely to be the case wiih one . that is in good condition , with the ...

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT . KKLATIVK COST Of STJJA . U A NO WAT-Kli . POWJEK It will perhaps be remernbored lhat sometime since wc published an extract from a letter ft otii Worcester , Mass ., which staled . that in that town the use of water for machinery had -yielded in a great , measure to that of steam . This was at least-new to us , as doubtless it . was to many others—il being a generall y received opinion that the cost of steam is far greater . , Since thai-lime ,, articles have appeared in the New .

The opinion of ihe author vil will bo scen , is greal . ly in favor of steam .

STEAMBOATS AM ) PROl'EM . ERS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

STEAMBOATS AM ) PROlEM . ERS . Mr . J . C . Filz of Astoria , Fulton co . makes the following suggestion in relation lo these vessels . Mr . Fitr . s request in relation to the bills wc will intend to . As to his inquiries below , wo have at present no knowledge ; but il the matter is available , wo will lock into it . If the mechanical department should make a dash at locomotives , steamboats , find propellers , il would be extremely interesting to me—particularly to inform me whether the attempt to dispense with the cogs and gearing by means of substituting an additional cylinder has met the expectations of those engineers who favored the plan . I noticed one of the [ impellers ( the one in Buffalo nearl y ready ) had an engine with two cylinders independent of each other rind attached to the shafis of the propellers by cranks which were at righl angles to each other , so that when one was on the dead center the other had the full [ tower .

• JtOADS . IT J . C . FITg . Now suppose instead of the plank we substitute earth , run a ditch on each side of the road , after culling olf tho limber or bushes if any there be to shade ; make these ditches of sufficient magnitude so that when the substance taken out . is applied to tho road it will cause the surface to be convex , and the more so the softer , wetter , or lower the land is through which it runs ; lhat is , a section ofihc road crosswise should be a segment of a circle—the widtii and convexity to be regulated by circumstances . One of tho machines described in jour paper for ditching might bo employed to advantage . When dona , allow none but broad-rimmed wheels—three inches wide at . least for the lightest pleasure wagon and every thing else in proportion .

The number of post offices from which wc have heard , where subscribers have fallen olT , does not exceed a half dozen ; while in almost every other one there is an increase—in some cases equal to half the previous list , in others doubling , and often quadrupling it .

From the old sections , where we have before had subscribers , our letters—often several in a day—inform us that our paper is certainl y gaining favor—that prejudices against book farming , arc wearing away , and in tho words of one correspondent many begin to insist less ri gidly on carrying the stone in one end of tho bag to ...

CLEAN CULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1845

CLEAN CULTURE . It . is a fact thai , ground which is kept from vegetation of any kind will not dry up so much as that on which a crop is grown . There are many who doubt this , but if they would make a proper examination , iheir doubts would be removed . Make en experiment—Hike a piece of ground iu the garden , and boo il . every day , or often enough to keep all kinds of vegetation from starling . Sow another piece adjoining , with grass , or some kind of grain . Alter a drouth of two or three weeks , examined both pieces b y digging into them wiih a spake or shovel . The earth of the grass or grain plat , will be found dry like ashes , lo the depth perhaps of a foot , or more . The other plat will be dried in only two or three inches—below lhat it will be found quite moist . Examine the ground in an orchard in a dry lime , and if it is not nalurnlly a wet piece of ground , it will bo found dry to a great depth .
