What Is to Ic Done ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

What Is to Ic Done ! Another spring is about to return and many farmers indebted to merchants for goods which they have used in their families , are unable to pay for them ; merchants arc crowding farmers , and merchants are being crowded by those of whom they have purchased goods . — What would we counsel ? We would counsel forbearance where it is possible ; but if the merchant is pressed , what can he do , but press his customers ? Every way psssible should be used to raise money and pay as far as you can ; and countrymen should not fall upon that unfair and injurious practice too often seen , to avoid these merchants to whom they are indebted and take what ready money they can raise and go to other stores to purchase goods for cash . This is a grievous wrong—tis a moral wrong—and we do not see how a conscientious man can practice it . Then buy what you must buy of those you owe , and pay them all the money you can . And we further say to our friends , make every turn you can hone...

Gold at Pike ' s Peak . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Gold at Pike s Peak . These accounts are increasing as the spring approaches , and we should not be surprised , if , some months hence , we should learn that many of the glowing accounts we receive in the papers were got up by interested persons either in the towns on the route , or at . the mines , who have goods to sell , and who wish to inveigle large numbers of emigrants to Pike s Peak . Some letters we have lately seen , and statements given in newspapers , impress us seriously that these surmises will be found to be facts . We therefore suggest caution . If there is gold there stretching through an extent of 700 miles , it will not be exhausted next season , and there are enough people there at present to make a thorough trial of the value of the placers . Many young men will go there investing there all , and return much poorer than when they left , their homes . We are not yet satisfied that the gold placers near Pike s Peak , will pay for washing .

• Potatoe Culture—The One-Eye System . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

• Potatoe Culture—The One-Eye System . The plan of raising potatoes on the one-eye system , is briefly this : Cut the potatoe in small pieces , leaving one eye on a piece . Plant in drills , dropping them from six to ten inches apart . Plow and dress them as you would other potatoes . This plan has been very successful . The crops yielded well , better than where the old system was pursued in parallel rows . The potatoes were all large and fine . A farmer of New York says , in the Country Gentleman , that with this culture , he harvested more potatoes , and of a uniform size , than he had ever done before on the same amount of ground . A Massachusetts farmer says , that he did not expect much from his potatoes , thns planted ; but he was greatly disappoiuted . You should have seen them roll out—great big fellows , many of them the size of a man s double fist . We would like to secure atrial of this system in Illinois . LICE OK STOCK . —If your stock are troubled with lice , now is t...

Protection for Out lots . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Protection for Out lots . Persons in cities find it inconvenient to purchase and improve out-lots . Those usually enclose some five acres of ground . On these out-lots can be grown all the fruit necessary to furnish a family all the garden crops , grass , corn and many other articles—making the out-lots a highly cultivated farm in miniature . Owners of such lots arc often annoyed by depredations , suffering great loss and vexation . Now such lots can be surrounded with hedges of the Osage Orange , and be made perfectly secure from intruders . They can be done in three and four years from the planting of the hedge , and at a moderate cost . SEEDLINGS . —Here is a most interest , ing field for our young farmers and amateur cultivators . There is a charm in a new flower or a new variety of fruit . Our most beautiful modern flowers are the production of h ybridization , and are choice seedlings . Our best roses are new creations by the same means . And we may say the same thing of many ...

" Tie Advisory Congress . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Tie Advisory Congress . Some weeks ago there was a collection of gentlemen engaged in agriculture for horticulture , congregated at Washington from the different States , selected and undefined purposes by the head of the Patent Office , and paid out of the government funds . They met , as we understand , and there was submitted to them some thousand or so questions , and subsequently they adjourned . What was done , no outsider seems to know as yet . The veil of mystery thrown over this matter , we think will be withdrawn in due time .

"A Great Corn Year . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

A Great Corn Year . This will be the greatest corn year ever seen in Illinois , said a farmer to us a few days ago . ? And why ? ** Because every farmer I see expresses that opinion , and his determination to raise all he possibly can himself . But can you grow corn if the season is as bad as the last . Well try . We could have raised more than we did last year , if we had worked with more energy . Why , I know farmers who didnt plant their ground till near July , and raised good corn—far better than the average of corn the year previous . We like to hear this talk . If every farmer feels right and works right , there will be a wonderful crop of corn the coming season . Where are the pigs and other stock to eat it ? 11 IIo ! FOR PIKE S PEAK !—We understand that in some of our neighboring towns , among those who will emigrate to Pike s Peak , the coming spring , there are some persons who design to turn their attention to farming . These farmers , of course , wish to make farms produ...

From an Inquiring Lad . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

From an Inquiring Lad . MR . EDITOR : For two years we hare failed in some of our leading crops . I am told that it did not use to be go . I have heard our neighbors , who have been farmers for a great many years , say that until within some few years past , ( except the noted year of the of the deep snow , ) they always made good crops , and that they took no more pains in making crops , than they do now . I do not understand why this is so . I wish I did . I have talked about it and thought about it a good deal , and I cannot satisfy myself anj other way , than to suppose the seasons have changed and that these changes are against the success of our common modes of farming . Now , what do you think on this subject ? Am I right ? If I am right , we must improve our farming if we expect to get good crops . I am young , have read some in the agricultural papers , hut yet do not know what is best to be done . I want to be a progressive farmer—that is , I want to improve as a farmer , ...

Eastern Emigration . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Eastern Emigration . The signs are that there will be alarge emigration from the east the ensuing spring , summer and fall . We see it so stated in the eastern papers . The ma jority are coming out to buy farms . The impression is at the east , that they can obtain such at much less price than has been known for years . Let them come . It will be a benefit to a large class of our farmers to dispose of portions of their farms , and give more attention to that which shall remain afterward . There are fine opportunities in our cities to purchase property . A good crop this year will change the aspect of affairs in the west . VENTILATION . —What wouldbe thought if we were to introduce into our stomachs half putrid meats and half putrid vegetables and fraits ? The stomach lives on food—the lungs on air .

Sugar Cane for Fodder . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Sugar Cane for Fodder . A writer in the Country Gentleman , adverts to the fact that cattle cannot eat the sugar-cane stalks after they become dry aud hard , and goes on to state that he has tried the cutting up of the stalks in a Stalk Cutter and Grinder , aud finds that his cattle , when the stalks are thus prepared , eat every portion freely . He also states that with this food , the cows have sensibly increased their milk . He believes that a single acre might be made to feed half a dozen eattle through the winter , and the cost of raising it would not exceed a dollar a ton . The production of an acre of good cane is enormous . DRAINING . — We find a capital article on this subject in the Weekly Quincy Whig and Republican . It gives a history of draining , and notices the benefits of the different systems . While we are satisfied that the greatest advantages can be received by the most extensive and thorough system , we ore compelled to admit the truth that hut few farmers have ...

"Cherry Creek Farms . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Cherry Creek Farms . Among the numerous letters from Cherry Creek ( Pikes Peak country ) is one which states that emigrants are making claims for farms near Cherry Creek ; and in describing the farming land , says it will have to be cleared of trees and brush . This will be rather a damper on some who go out to Cherry Creek for the purpose of making farms . And there is another obsticle in the way of success , of which but little hasbeensaid—the want of water . But little water falls in the region at the eastern base of the Rocky mountains in summer . The small streams nearly all dry up . Irrigration , therefore , will be difficult j and we are not sure but summer frosts will prove troublesome . We recollect that emigrants for Oregon , a few years ago , stated that water in buckets was covered with ice in July , while the companies were farming near the South Pass . The Cherry Creek country must be elevated nearly as much as the South Pass . Itis very certain that we shall bave but ...

The Best Time to Sow Fens . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

The Best Time to Sow Fens . 1 . I have raised many peas , of many sorts , for market , both in garden and field culture . Those sowed early have , with great uniformity , produced the best crops . Peas sowed late are injured by dry , hot weather , and almost always mould more or less , and so produce a lighter crop . The cold freezing weather that often occurs in A pril and early May , does not injure peas once in ten yeurs . 2 . The pea-bug—alas , I know of no certain means ot resisting this almost omnipotent enemy . The assertion that he may be avoided by very early sowing , is simply not true . It would seem that the pea-bug finds other places for the deposit of Ms eggs , in the absence of the peapod . Hence it is that clean seed , sown on soil where peas have not recently been grown , does not avoid him . The pea-bug , however , may always be cheaply and thoroughly expelled from the seed you are about to sow . Let your seed be well dried in the fall , and put up in close vessels...

Farmers , Plant Apple Orchards ' . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Farmers , Plant Apple Orchards . If any farmer who has had for twenty years a good orchard of grafted apple trees , properly selected for market , and in tolerably favorable portions of the country , has kept an account of the annual average product of his trees for that time , he will find that they have netted him fifty dollars per acre a year . This remark applies to such orchards as have had no care . Those which have received good cultivation have done better . Why then cultivate whole farms , at hard labor , for a net proceed of five dollars per acre ? Why not plant orchards ? They wont bear in an age . That is because , then , they receive no eare . Give them the same chance that a crop of potatoes receives , ( and which would not cost a tenth of the labor expended yearly on the potatoes , ) and they will send out shoots two or three feet long—but if neglected and weed-grown , and grass-bound , they willgrow only two or three inches—in one instance twelve times as fast as in ...

Wit on Tombstones . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1859

Wit on Tombstones . A vast amount of wit ia to be gathered from tombstones and mortuary puns have long been famous . The epitaph of tbe witty divine , Dr . Thomas Puller , is worthy of himself , Bimply , Fullers earth . There is a professional point in the epitaph of tbe eminent barriater . Sir John Strange : Here lies an honest lawyer—that Is Strange .
