Good people , if you will take my advice I do believe we will have easy times in less than five years . I am afraid it will take three years of close attention to business and good economy with it to get out of debt . I feel certain there is gold enough within less than one foot of the top of the earth to pay ten times as much as we all owe , and please one and all . Pay strict attention and I will tell you how to flnd . it . In the first place when you go to town get everything yon want , so that you need go no more than once in two months . Get your firewood forthwith ; out and split it up ready to use . In the next place , see that you have plenty of flour , meal and meat , to hold out until after harvest . Next , see that your plows , hoes , harrows and all your tools are in good repair . Have a place for a...

How to Raise Burly Potatoes , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

How to Raise Burly Potatoes , As I have never seen the plan adopted here , in raising early potatoes , mentioned in any agricultural paper , I herewith give it . About six weeks previous to the usual time of planting in the open ground , mark out a piece , say five or six feet wide , and as long as required , on a dry and sheltered piece of : land ; dig outthc surface to a depth offiveor six inches ; place boards around to keep up the loam or sand ; then fill to the depth of six inches , with horse er some manure which has been thrown over to produce heat ; tread it down lightly , as for a hot-bod , and cover the manure with four inches of loam . I keep some in my bam cellar through the winter , where the bed is to be made , with straw or something to keep out tho frost . Then pack your potatoes as close as you can , over the surface , a single thickness ; cover with four inches of loam , or , what is better , sand , as the sprouts are tougher and do not separate so easil y from the...

Northern Trotters , vs . Thoroughbreds . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

Northern Trotters , vs . Thoroughbreds . The following article , evidently from the pen of a discriminating observer , appeared in the Southern Farmer , sign , ed Physician . We agree with the Doctor in the main , yet prize crosses of thorough-bred with trotting stock , especially with our Morgans and Black Hawks , the characteristics of whose breed are so strong that the trotting qualities are not impaired in the stock , are benefitted by taking many of the traits of the thoroughbred . Among beasts , there is no greater aristocrat than the race-horse ; he is no producer , he lives on the fat of the land on the labor of others . The winds of heaven are not allowed to visit him too roughly , and he is unquestionably lord over all brute creation . I am a great admirer of the horse for his beauty , his excellence , his sportiveness , nay , I would say give me the noise , which !? frantic fit , Throws tho foam from curb and bit . hut yet I do not desire tho race-horse , and why ?

Braining Prevents " Heaving Out " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

Braining Prevents Heaving Out Among other evils incident to undrained soils , is the liability to heave or freeze out the crops sown thereon , so that it is difficult , if not impossible , to grow winter grain or clover profitably though the soil otherwise is well suited to their production . A cose coming under our observation the past winter , will well illustrate the subject . A field of five acres , seeded to clover two years ago upon rye , owing in part to the presence of snow upon the ground the greater part of the first winter and spring , escaped with slight injury from this cause , and gave a very good growth of clover . But the past winter , the weather being of a different character , the grass on about three acres of the field was entirely destroyed , every root of clover , being pulled up or thrown out , laid loose upon the surface of the ground the present spring . This was an example of heaving out of unmistakable character . The cause and process of freezing out has ...

Detection of Horse Thieves . FREEDOM , March 12 , 1859 . Mr . FRANCIS : —In view of the increasing amountofhorsestealing , l have been thinking for some time about a practible method ( to be adopted by tne masses , especially the Agricultural portion of men , ) in order to check these depredations . And it appears to me that my project ( although it may not be new ) might be made to pay well , both to the patron and the publisher , which is simply this ; that some publisher of an Agricultural journal , attach to his periodical a stolen horse detector , the list to briefly state the owners name ; the Post Office address , minute description of the animal , the time stolen and the reward , & c , & e . Which notice should stand for a given time , say three or six months , the owner of the animal advertised to pay a fixed amount o £ money tor said insertion , or in his getting a certain amount of paying subscribers as compen sation . The objects are these , to de...

The Vineyards ol the Shine . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

The Vineyards ol the Shine . The Scottish Quarterly Journal of Agriculture contains an interesting article on Rhenish Wine and Rhineland , a few extracts from which we think will be acceptable to the readers of the Farmer . The writer visited the most celebrated vineyards on tho Rhine , in 1855 , and again in the summer of 1857 . In 1855 , the crop was almost a universal failure , owing to the late frosts in April destroying the fruit-bearing shoots of the vine ; while in 1857 tho vines were loaded with an exuberance of full y ripened fruit . In 1855 , search had to be made among the luxuriant green leaves for a bunch of grapes , and , when found , the fruit proved diminutive and unripe . In 1857 , on the other hand , bunch was suspended over and beside bunch in such profusion that surprise was excited that so small a plant as the pruned vine was able to bear so large a quantity of fruit as far to outweigh the weight of the plant itself , and which it could not have done without amp...

c—To County Agricultural Societies . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

c—To County Agricultural Societies . i / The County Agricultural Societies of ¦ this State , will learn with regret , that jtho bill which passed the Senate , for conjtinumg the yearly appropriation of one pundred dollars to the connty Societies , has failed to become a law , having been left with the unfinished business of the House of Representatives . It is feared that the failure of this appropriation will be disastrous , perhaps fatal , to some few of the more feeble county Societies that are with difficulty struggling into existence . It is believed that the Legislature was entirely favorable to the passage of this bill , and that it will become a law as soon as an opportunity for further legislative action is secured . S .

Sbade Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

Sbade Trees . Every spring we see large trees , brought from the timber , for planting out as shade trees , with roots cut off within a foot of their bodies , and without any fibrous roots . People buy them , pay large prices for them , and thirty-nine out of forty die ; as every sensible man knew they would , and as tbey ought to die . livery spring this same scene is re-enacted , and we suppose it will continue while the world stands . Men learn little from experience . The same has been the practice with evergreens . What is there now to show for the Iaods of evergreens which have been brought to Springfield from the forests and sold here ? If any exist , they have a hard time in doing so . And yet if another load of evergreens were to he brought here , with the huckleberry roots about them , they would still be bought . Men would make another trial . They would take these trees , grown in j sand , and plant them out in black prairie soil , where the water will stand about the ro...

A Word in Time . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

A Word in Time . Next August and September our farmers will want corn to feed their horses , and to fatten their hogs early for market . Our ordinary corn will not be ripe in those months . Now , what is to be done ? Just this : Get seed of the King Philip corn , or some other early variety , and plant it when you plant your general crop . You can then have ripe corn to feed out in August and September . But you say , probably , This is small corn and wont produce well . Now , there have been as many bushels of shelled corn raised to an acre of this King Philip corn in New Hampshire , as have ever been raised of the large corn in this country . It requires different cultivation . The rows should be three feet apart , and the hills ei ghteen inches , with four stalks in a hill . That farmer who provides himself-with an early corn crop—that he can feed out in August and September—will find it a source of profit and pleasure . He can do this , if he chooses to do it . Wc know some fann...

A Lesson Which Ought sot to k Forgotten . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1859

A Lesson Which Ought sot to k Forgotten . We hear from all around us of large numbers of Cattle dying and dead of star vation . Not sufficient food was provided for them last season . What would have been the condition of many of our farmers had the fall , winter and spring seasons , been of the usual severity ? It is a recorded fact that in some cases horses have lived in blue grass all winter , sheep were not required to be fed until 10 th of January , and , cattle have not required , by any means , the usual quantity of feed . Are we not to blame for the state of things presented on some of our farms and on our prairies ? Skins of cattle hung on pens , and sheds , and skeletons about on prairies , poisoning the atmosphere . When our groat staple crop of corn was known to have failed last summer , there was time enough remaining of the season to have made large crops of corn fodder . Oorn sown broadcast and li ghtly plowed in and the land rolled , would have yielded large crops of...
