The January Ko . of tlic Farmer . | [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

The January Ko . of tlic Farmer . | The article on novel reading , has good points . There are many valuable novels , the perusal of which will do good . The difficulty is in making proper selections . Walter Scotts , are among the best . It is questionable , however , if the persual of more sterling works , history , geography , travel j such works as enlightens us in the employments of our every day life , would not prove more advantageous to us . I think they would . We have a communication from Mr . R . Kimball , of Delavan , relative to his experiments with the African Sugar Cane . He has tried also the Chinese , and prefer the African . He finds no difficulty in making sugar of the juice of the African , from the fact , as he supposes , that it maintains less mucilage than the other . Accounts of all these , from every quarter , will enable our sugar growers to go to work another year with entire confidence in success . Samrial State , of Medena county , Ohio , g ives his expe...

CULTIVATION OF APPLES . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

CULTIVATION OF APPLES . Fruit Growers Society of Western New YorkAnnual meeting . How many varieties should be embraced in an orchard of 1000 trees , to secure the largest profit of orcharding in Western New York ? What are the most profitable varieties for an orchard of 1000 trees . The above is a caption to a long discussion in the Fruit Grower s Society of Western New York , which was reported for and published in the Rural New Yorker , and republished in ¦ some of the papers of our State . The discussion is an interesting one , and of importance to the Fruit Growers of Western New York ; but of little practical advantage to us in Illinois . Indeed , it is calculated to mislead our fruit growers ; for with hut one or two exceptions the list of apples highest commended , have been tried in Illinois , and have failed for want of adaptation to our climate and soil . We speak now of the Baldwin , R . J . Greening , Roxbury , Russet , Eropus , Spritzenbery , and to a great extent , th...

Tie Planting of Sew Orchards . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

Tie Planting of Sew Orchards . Much of this will be done the coming spring—and it is hoped that the experience of the few past years will be of service to our friends in selection of grounds for the orchards , and the procuring of the best trees for planting out . Orchards should not be planted on our flat , heavy prairie grounds . — High grounds , even if the soil is poor , are better , and if protected by timber on the north and west , success will be more probable . We do not believe a flourishing orchard can be found anywhere upon our black , heavy soil . We have in vain made inquiries to find a healthy and thrifty orchard on such grounds . Thousands and thousands of dollars have been wasted within the few past years in Illinois in planting out orchards on unsuitable lands , and probably as much more in purchasing trees unsuited to our climate . The matter is settled that young trees , grown here , are better and safer than trees grown in other climates , and in other soils . No...

{ ^ ^ Industrial Universities . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

{ ^ ^ Industrial Universities . / Can there be a measure of greater and deeper importance than that contemplated by the Land Bill , introduced by Mr . Morrill , in the lower House of Congress ? It certainly meets the approbation of the best and most liberal minds in our land . Passed b y Congress , it would do much to promote the general diffusion of the arts and sciences in our country , and in the same ratio its progress and prosperity—and its productive industry . Is the wisdom of our nation in Congress ? Is high ambition there ? Cares Congress for the respect of coming generations?—or , the general good of this great land ? We shall see ! Actions are what bear honors and produce results ! Congress ! well may you listen , plan and act , when the interests of the nation calls upon you . SAMUEL JACOB WALLACE .

"Nothing Sew under the Sun . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1859

Nothing Sew under the Sun . JUditor of the Farmer : — I have been interested in the notices published of the discussions at the meeting of the State Horticultural Society at Bloomington , and especially what was said in regard to the protection of Fruit Trees and general crops , and plants in the gardens , and dwellinngs , from the winds of spring and early summer that sweep over our prairies . If you have not lived upon the prairie , you can hardly realize how much we suffer from these winds . Look at our young orchards—see them leaning all one way . It is often so with our grain , corn and other crops . And these winds whistle about our horses , destroying our flowers and trouble us exceedingly in our gardens . We can improve our farms , plant orchards , put out vines , fruit shrubbery and ornamental shrubbery ; but we have no means of staying these devastating winds . You will not wonder , then , that I read Mr . Edward s remarks on the culture of Evergreens for protection , with...
