Small Farms . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Small Farms . Editor Farmer : —Send me two copies of your paper—one for J . S ., who is the nearest neighbor I have , and he lives a mile off . You must know that when wheat was high and the crops good , I fancied I would make money by extending my farm and growing wheat . I have now four hundred acres of land ; and in 1857 and 581 had nearly three hundred acres in wheat . The crop was destroyed in 57 and nearly so in 58 . The raising of wheat has been a losing business with me . Last fall I made up my mind that it would not answer for me to devote my attention to raising wheat . I tried to sell a portion of my land , but could not , and Isucceeded in leasing it . I put twenty-five acres only in wheat last fall . My intention is , to give more attention to stock . I like your idea of raising pork . Pork has paid well for years . Sometimes it has been raised with great profit , and I think always has paid for the raising . I can do a good business in this line with seventy-five or a ...

Fall Plowing for Spring Wheat and Oats . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Fall Plowing for Spring Wheat and Oats . Editor of the Farmer : —I see that some of the correspondents of the Illinois Farmer appear to know but little of the value of Fall plowing for Spring Wheat and Oats . It is universally practical in this County , not only becanse there is more lei s ure to plow , and it enables the farmer tosow his grain in better season in the Spring ; but because it is generally thought to produce a better crop , especially if plowed early in the fall . Onr practice is to turn in the stubble as soon after harvest as other business will permit . That early fall plowing is better than late . I had the opportunity to witness this year on a field , part of which was plowed the first of September and the balance in November . The field was sowed with wheat in March , across tho furrows . That on the earl y plowing was much more luxuriant during the whole season , and produced better grain . Tho difference was disccrnable during the growing season , at the distan...

Enquiries . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Enquiries . Editor of the Farmer : —Can you tell me how to grow White Mustard on a large scale ? Can the Castor Bean be successfully cultivated here ? Will hogs eat the Japan Pea ? Where can these seeds be had ? I have found the best way to raise oats is —to clear the trash from the ground ; then sow your oats and plow in the seed two or three inches . Of course this must be dry ground . It would be well to roll or harrow the ground afterwards . The work must be done early in spring . J . S . ANSWERS . —Mustard seed can be sown broadcast , —though it would probably do better drilled in . The ground should be well prepared , should be clean , and less seed is required than to sow the same ground with turnips . In goodseasons , Castor Beans can be raised in this latitude . Several farmers in Christian country raised crops last season . Hogs will eat Japan Peas ; but the crop is not considered profitable . White Mustard Seed , Castor Beans and Japan Peas , can be had at the seed stores...

The Garden . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

The Garden . The garden is a bound volume oE agricultural life written in poetry . In it the Earmer and his family set the great industries of the plow , spade , and hoe , in rhyme . Every flower or fruit bearing tree is a green syllable after the graceful type and curse of Eden , Every bed ot flowers is an acrosstic to Nature , written in the illustrated capitals of her own alphabet . Every bed oE beets , celery , or savory roots or bulbs , is a page of blank verse , full of the belles lettres of agriculture . The farmer may be seen in his garden . It contains the synopsis oE his character in letters that may be read across the road . Thebarometer , hungby bis door will indicate certain facts about the weather , but the garden , lying on the sunny side of the house , will mark , with greater precision , the degree o £ mind , heart culture which he has reached . It will embody and reflect his tastes , the bent and bias of his perceptions oE grace and beauty . In it he holds up the m...

Microscopic Wonders . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Microscopic Wonders . Among the most remarkable of those myriads of animals which exist in every drop of water , is the navicula—a little creature which has some twenty or thirty legs , and is endowed by Nature with an armor of flint . In a paper which was recently laid before one of the scientific societies of London , some curious facts concerning this diminutive animal wero stated . Among other things it was mentioned that if an observer watches narrowly for five or six hours , he will note a tbin transparent line spreading across it in some direction . After the line makes its first appearance it becomes every moment more distinct , and rapidly increases in width . At length the creature begins wriggling its limbs violently the body splits asunder , and two new navicula ; are made out of one old one . The animal has something like a hundred stomachs , and its mouth , which is situated , near one extremity , is surrounded by a number of almost invisible tentacula , with which it ...

Effects of Late Hour * , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Effects of Late Hour * , From a recent trial we learn chat a new woman s profession is known in England—that of a face painter , or ladies decorator . The mistress of this art attends ladies who go to balls , & c , beautifies their complexion , and arranges their teeth , besides dressing their hair , and attending to the making up of their persons generally . Some who pursue this business can produce the required quality of paleness or color to suit various times and circumstances , and can make the subject languidly interesting or brilliantly handsump , from the contents of a small box . It probibly will not be long ere some such profession is in practice in New York —late hours and dissipation muting sad ravages on the health and beauty of our fashionable women . There is one custom which , though universally prevalent , is advocated by none , and is complained of by all—most bitterly by those whu are most the slaves to it—viz : that of turning nigt into day at parties...

Go to bed Early . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1859

Go to bed Early . To all young persone , to students , to the sedentary , and to invalids , the fullest Bleep that tbe By stem will take , without artificial means , is the balm of life—without it there can be no restoration to health and activity again . Never wake up tbe sick or infirm , or young children , of a morn—it IB a barbarity ; let them wake of themselves , let the care be to establish an hour for retiring , so early that their fullest sleep may be out before sunrise . Another item of very great importance ii : Do nut hurry up the young and the weakly . It is no advantage to pull them out of bed so soon as their eyes ure open , nor is it bent for the studious , or the well who have passed an unusually fatiguing day , to jump out of bed the moment they wake until the sense of weariness passes from their limbs . Nature abhors two things : violence and a Tacuum . Tbe sun does not break at < nee into the glare of the meridian . The diurnal flowers unfold themselves...

, Apple Culture in Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

, Apple Culture in Illinois . An Address by Arthur Bryant before the State Horticultural . Society , delivered at Bloomiiigton , December 14 , 1858 . It is mj present object to make some remarks upon the obstacles to the successful cultivation of the apple in this State , and as far as I am able , to suggest the means , of their removal . So numerous are tbesc obstacles , that it cannot be expected that I should in the limits of a short essay do more than briefly discuss some of the principal . — The idea may suggest itself at the outset , that the greatest obstacle to success in the cultivation of the apple is the ignorance and negligence of most of those who engage in it . This may be true ; but the fact being admitted and the remedy obvious , it is needless to enlarge upou it here . It is by attending to , and discussing the minor difficulties , that the greater is to be removed . Among the enemies of the apple , insects hold a prominent place j and among insects the most destruc...

Gold Digging . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

Gold Digging . Wealth , substance , property , money , must be slowly acquired to produce the best results . Labor to be beneficent must be employed on useful things , in pursuits that have some connection with our wants and necessities . Mining for the precious metals is the farthest removed from these , if we except disreputable employments . Young men who go to the mines should remember , if successful , that they acquire unsettled habits , that they will throw off with difficulty ; they will have a distaste for staid pursuits , and will find , ere long , that wealth , suddenly acquired , does not bring with it the enjoyment they expected , for this is not the order of material development , that seeks successive steps in all its attainment . We are satisfied that wealth without corresponding cultivation , without a broaden ^ ing of our views and duties , is not the good that the imagination makes of it . We do not say that the happiness all consists in the acquisition . We belie...

The Cane Staple [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

The Cane Staple MR . EDITOR : I think that there can be no longer any question about the successful cultivation of the Chinese Sugar Cane here ; that it will grow to perfection ; that it will yield large crops ; that its juice can bo made into excellent sjrup , and this profitably to the grower—with some further conditions . And the conditions are these : the man who expects to raise cane and work it up at a profit , should select high and dry ground , p lant the seed early , so as to have much of his crop matured by the 1 st of September . When he has planted his seed , he should go about getting his apparatus to work up his cane ! . Be should have this all ready by the first of August , Better be a month too early than one day too late . This having to get a mill and boilers after the cane is ready for working , is the rock on which many sugar cane growers have wrecked their expectations . When the cane is ripe , it should bo worked rapidly . The mill should bo in order—the boilin...

Hungarian Grass . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

Hungarian Grass . JACKSONVILLE , Jan . 12 , 1859 . EDITOR ILLINOIS FARMER : I have been waiting patiently all winter , and examining the papers closely for the purpose of hearing the experience of some of my brother farmers in regard to their Hungarian grass the past season . Having failed to find anything in reference to it , I will givo you my experience and notion about it . I could hardly get hold of a paper , last spring , that did not contain some glowing account of the tremendous yield , per acre , that some farmer , ( always a great way off , ) had realized from the growth of this said Hungarian grass . And thinking it was a humbug , got up by those that had anything but the good of our glorious State at heart , I determined to give it a fair trial in order to satisfy myself j and not wishing to be hurt very badly with it , I only bought one half bushel of seed . This I got of a gentleman that bought it of the producer ; he assuring me that it was pure , and there could not ...
