SHEEP—FEED—ARTICHOKES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

SHEEP—FEED—ARTICHOKES . [ For the Prairie Farmer . MESSRS . EDITORS : You say you wish where you have subscribers , to have that place represented in your columns by correspondents , and as I have not yet seen any from this section of country I have ventured with much diffidence to address you . With regard to husbandry , in all ils branches I flatter myself I have been well drilled in the practical part , hut still I feel I lack something when I should express my ideas grammatically upon paper ; for I can assure you orthography is not studied between the handles of a plow ; neither were colons orsimicolons much though ) aboil ) ij pou the mountains where the writer was trained to herd blleefK ,- An excitement has caught ihe community upon the subject of sheep-keeping on the prairies of Illinois , and Mr . Crocker is correct when he says much disapjiointment will be experienced , unless sortie preparations , such a-i fall pasturage be provided before purchasing stock , if I have any...

HEARING CALVES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

HEARING CALVES . [ For the Prairie Farmer . 1 IY C . M . VAS DOllKN . MI : « SHS . EDITORS : Our method is to take the calf from iho cow immediately after it is dropped , or as soon as seen . Calves are more easily learned lo drink when taken away at once , Ilirtti when left lo run with the cow a few days , or until ( he milk is good , besides being more quiet , and ihe row . if young , much less difficult to milk . The calf is plncrd in a dry shed , well littered , with a small yard al J inched , for exercise , which is far bclter than lo tie them . We generally milk the row as soon as the calf is taken away , and give it all it will take . If it refuses to drink , it can be soon learned by giving it the finger , with the back of the hand placed downwards in the bottom of the pail . Occasionally one will not drink nor even suck the finger ) when this is-the case , we give it a small lump of salt , and leave it until the next milking time . Wc feed them twice a day , giving the milk...

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT A NKW MORTICIXO MACHINE . WC called a few days since to look at a machine for boring and morticing wheel hubs . It was not in operation when we were in , but we saw plenty of the work done b y it , which was finished in a siyle of greater accuracy than is usually accomplished by hand . A wheel hub with this implement can be boicd and morticed read y to receive the spokes in two minutes and a half , and it . will turn them off on an average of five minutes for the day . The cost of the machine is about $ 100 . It is worked by horse power . It is the invention of Mr . B . Cummings , a workman in the shop of Messrs . Scoville & Gates of this city , and will without question prove lo be an instrument of the highest value in this branch of business .

MACHINE FOR LAYING PIPE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

MACHINE FOR LAYING PIPE . This machine , of which a profile view is given in the cut , is the invention of Mr . Ezra Cornell , of Ithica , New York . Its mode of operation is easil y understood—the pipe being coiled around a drum , from which it is unwound and deposited in the bottom of ihe trench , made by the thin share , which is drawn through the earth by two or four yoke of cattle , as needed . The p ipe containing the wire for Prof . Morses Telegraph , for ten miles , was laid with this machine . Four hundred , and fifty feet of pipe were laid b y it , at the depth of twenty inches , and covered , in little more than two minutes . In putting down lead pipe for the conveyance of water , such an implement would be of great utility , where there were no large stones to interfere . -But there is ano her purpose for which , it seems to us , it might be used to good advantage . In a former number wo alluded to under-draining , by an Implement similar to this . It , seems obvious , l...

NEW INVENTIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

NEW INVENTIONS . Solomons declaration , that there is nothing new under the sun , bids fair to reduce us to the alternative of thinking that limes have changed wonderfully since his day , or that wc arc very poorl y informed of what has been done before our time . Inventions and discoveries more astonishing than any that have preceded them , are continually springing into existence . We all thought that the electromagnetic telegraph would do to wonder over a few years at least , before our marvelOosncss were laxed any farther . ¦ But others as astonishing ctowd so thick upon each olher , that all we can do is to chronicle them , and conclude to disbelieve nothing any longer , hut to give the world leave to invent whatever it pleases . A little lime since we were told of an electric li ght invented in Cincinnati , by a couple of young men there , which would supersede sperm , oleine , slearine-, and tallow ; of which the radiating substance , of the size of a pea , would illuminate a...

PLAN OF A HOUSE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

PLAN OF A HOUSE . In the annexed cut , those wlio arc accustomed to notice the construction of dwellings will recognize a house more generally built than any other . The majority of house * owned by middling and well-lo-do-iu-the-world people in all our Eastern and Western villages north of about 41 degrees of latitude arc some modification of litis sample . Thousand of farmers also and persons living in rural comfort out of villages have taken the same model for an abode . It is frequently called in New England die half house—as if made from cutting a pretty stately square of a mansion in two ; and it will be seen lhat as easy a mode as any of getting such a mansion would be lo double this . Its popularity has doubtless arisen from ihc fact that it i » not easy lo get as much pleasant and elig ible room with the same outlay , on any other plan . Though there is the same general outline of the buildings of ( his sort , ( here is considerable difference in the internal arrangement of...

' ¦* -- » g . MARKETS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1845

¦* -- » g . MARKETS . Prairie Farmer Office , March 26 , 1845 . Wheat airtvea in considerable quantities during the present fine weather , and is quickly disposed of at good prices , 76 being paid for the best , wiih an upward tendency . Oats are on the decline , some having been brought over the lake in vessels . We can only quote them at 25 ( 0 20 cents . Potatoes have also fallen off in price since the opening of spring . Other farm products find quick sale at good prices . We learn that the winter wheat now on the ground looks well , and that considerable quantities of spring wheat arc sown . It is too early to predict any thing in the face of so many contingencies as surround a wheat crop ; hut tho season thus far is fair for a good crop . THE H OBSK MARKET is extremel y dull at present . There ¦ are now 150 here—many of them fine animals , in fine order—but few or no buyers . About $ 30 to $ 60 for common animals , are the usual prices when sales are made . Between this and th...

A CULTIVATOR FOR CORN . The implement shown iii the cut is a very neat and convenient one for plowmg among corn . It is better than a plow ; as it doe « not turn the earth in any considerable quaniiiies upon the rows , and cuts over a large surface with a li ght draught . It is lighter of draught , less clumsy , and easier handled than the common cultivator . Its construction is easily seen : it consists of ihree small shares , placed on a diagonal line , so as to cut the desired surface . Ths wheels fore and aft should be lowered—Or may be dispensed with . The most valuable p orrioriof stable manure is that which is invisible in the mass , consisting of ammonia and salts . To collect this from the urine of a horse stable , strew the floor witli ( , vpstnn .

HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 May 1845

HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS CHURNS . We observe that this market is full of pine churns , very neatly made , and of this kind a very good article . We do not wish to injure any body s trade ; but it ig a fact that pine is not a fit timber for any dish or vessel in which butter is ftrbe put . The butter extracts from it , in a little time , a disagreeable taste ; and though this may not always bo recognized as proceeding from pine wood , • till it is hardly possible for butter to be in contact with it even for a short time , without injury . Ash or oak is far better , and as easily obtained ) . »^ y - — APPLE BREAD . A Frenchman has invented and practiced with great success , a- method of making bread with common apples , very far superior to potato bread .
