To ascertain the cause I dissected several , and b y minute -examination fouwl leeches in their livers and intestines , in shape like a pumpkin seed , although much thinner and smaller , with an orifice an eighth of an inch perhaps from the smaller end . The leeches are precisely of the color of the part oh which they arc found .

METOXICUM , OH MILK SICKNESS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 March 1845

METOXICUM , OH MILK SICKNESS . We notice another communication on this subject in tho Alton Telegraph from one who has taken much pains to understand the subject . We presume no apology will bo needed for-continuing to present whatever throws lig ht on a disease more dreaded and dreadful than any Other in large sections of the West . It will be seen that Dr . Wior fortifies our suggestion , in our last number , that plants growing where the poisonous mineral existed would cause the disease also . We have abridged the letter slightly . Most persons who have written on the subject , have been of the opinion that , this disease is produced by a vegetable poison ; some one , and some another : but all these statements , together with my own observations , convince me that it is produced by a mineral or minerals combined . Hence the name , Metoxicum . When I came to thisplace in the fall of 35 , I was called to treat some cases of Ibis disease , and was much perplexed , haying to feel my...

COLIC IN HOUSES ny W . A . SANGER . . MESSRS . EOITORS : In looking over an old file of th » Prairie Farmer I saw an inquiry from one of your readers wishing to know the best remed y for colic in horses , caused by eating corn . If ihc following will be of any use to your correspondent , you are welcome lo it . Three years ago I had a valuable mare seized witfi tha colic , caused by eating new corn and heating b y driving immediately after . Her symptoms were of the worst character ; and as we had lost several valuable horses from the same cause , I considered her case almost hopeless . I how- 1 ever bled her freely from the mouth . I then dissolved a piece of opium , about two thirds the size of a hagietipt ( say about 20 graiils ) iu half a pint of brandy and poured it down her ; I then put her into a litltigy , and started immediately home . Before I had gone three miles she was perfectly well . Another excellent , remedy for flatulent ( wind ) colic iri horses is 1 oz . laudanum...

BREEDS OF CATTLE FOR THE WEST . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 March 1845

BREEDS OF CATTLE FOR THE WEST . THE PRAIRIE FARMER . MARCH , 184 s ) . Those who advocate the adoption of anyone particular breed of cattle for our climate and soil , seem to proceed on the supposition that a breed once established will always retain ils peculiarities under every variety of situation and circumstance . Never was a . greater mistake made than this . A breed of animals will most infallibly adapt itself to its food- and treatment . Durham cattle , for instance , can never long be made on the hills of New England , to retain their size . How is it tit present with Berkshire swine ? It would dot bo out of the way to say that there will soon ho an endless number of varieties , all springing from this breed , having as little resemblance to each other as to other breeds . Let us ask the question how the present distinct , breeds of cattle , swine , and sheep were produced . It was hy uniform courses of feed , treatment , and propagation . So well fixed in the breeds are ce...

ROWING GRASS SEED ON UNBROKEN LAND . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 March 1845

ROWING GRASS SEED ON UNBROKEN LAND . Wo find considerable difference of opinion among the farmers in relation to sowing grass seed . One maintains that the land should he in all eases well cultivated . Another affirms that the best way is to sow on unbroken prairie . It is probable that both are in a rneasure right . If the land is broken-at all it should be well cultivated , if possible , several years , until the roots of the prairie grass and all organic matters arc disposed of . We have never , known grass to succeed on , new breaking in a single instance * , * and wo apprehend that most of the complaints of ill success are from trials which have failed frOm this cause . Our prairie lands need manure for grass . Barn-yard manure will answer well on all of them . Plaster will , on many of our lands , work well ; and where sand predominates , or is plentiful , ashes will bo found efficient . . , But . as to the policy of putting grass seed on unbroken prairie , there is much dispu...

Thisplat of ground was infested by that , greatest of all pests to the farmer , the Canada Thistle . We resolved to take them by surprise . Earl y in the . spring , accordingly , about flur weeks before planting time , we dug to the depth of a foot , the whole platovcr , and carefully extracted and threw over the fence every thistle root wo could find . ; We now supposed wc had conquered the thistles , and looked forward with pleasing anticipations to the pleasures of cultivating a profitable crop .

ORCHARD AND GARDEN . ROOT GRAFTING AND BUDDING . J ) V M . MOVER . MESSRS . EDITORS : I remarked in a former letter that I would give you something on the cultivation of fruit trees , and should differ from your correspondent on page 38 of the last volume , but on mOre mature reflection and comparison I find he and I will difler so little that it is not worth while to begin . I will now give you a few remarks on my experience in the nursery business . For fifteen years I assisted my father in the nursery business in the northern part of Ohio , who pulfiyatcd an extensive nursery altogether by root grafting . I commenced jny purspry in Indiana in the same manner . But meeting with so many failures by excessive heavy rains , drought , & c , I have for four years past inoculated a considerable portion of my njirsery . I followed the directions of the American Orcliardisl b y transplanting the trees when young—one or two years old from the seed , and budding them the second ...

EDITORS : My western customers and correspondents often make remarks like the following ; We live in a new country , have no fruit , and we want sucli varieties as will spon come in bearing fruit . Perhaps I cannot do a better service to the public , than by giving a brief ( Jfljcriptivp list of some of the varieties of the apple that may be expected to produce fruit when the trees are very young . At ) d hero 1 would just drop this preliminary remark—that all varieties fruit much sooner when cut directly from bearing trees . And it is to be hoped that , the day l * not far distant when every nurseryman will be able t ( o procure all his scions directly from bearing trees .

If you finivh your bed by noon , the heat will begin to rise by the next morning ; and by the noon of the second day after the bed is made , the heat will be up . Poke your finger as deep as you can into the middle of the . bed , when you have taken off one of the lig hts . If the heat be so great , as to burn your finger , that is to say , if you cannot endure the heat , then it is too great to receive the earth ; but if not , put on the earth all over the bed . If the heat be too great , give the bed a little air , and wait till . a little of the heat be gone off . The earth should be dry ; not like dust , but not wet .

Let each of -yoii r readers who plants an orchard observe carefully the directions of F . and ho will probably bo benefited to a larger amount than the price of your paper for ten years .

Now you know—and therefore I need not tell you—that the endless pastures of this western world afford the most splendid opportunities of raising horses under the blue canopy .

Let such postmasters sue you I or postage , and charge them for use and damage done to your papers . Some farmers never buy a small tool , as augers , chisels , planes , &amp;amp; c , but every lime they need one run a mile or two to borrow—then as much more to take it home . (?) The time spent in running for such tools once or twice , it well occupied , would buy them . Some of my neighbors think it good economy to travel two or three miles every clay in harvest to grind on my stone . : Well , let them grind ; it is better economy for me , to find stone for them and myself to grind on , than-to lose as much time ...
