STATISTICS OF SUGAR GROVE PRECINCT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 June 1845

STATISTICS OF SUGAR GROVE PRECINCT . 9 - [ For the Prairie Farmer . BY THOMAS JUDD . MESSRS . E DITORS : In accordance with your request I send ypu a sketch of the statistics of our precitict , sjiowinc the amount of produce raised the last season as reported by a committee appointed to condense and report the same from the statistical tables returned from the six school districts . Your readers will recollect a report on the same subject , which appeared in the April number of the third volume of ( his paper . It appears by comparing the returns of that year with the present that the number of families has increased from 80 to 127 . And although the doctrine of annexation has made prosolytes of numbers of those returned in the former report as men without families , owners nf farms and tillers of soil , yet others have been added , and the returns show an increase of their numbers from 19 to 22 making an increase of 50 to the number of freeholders , in the last two years . The numb...

MESSRS . - EDITORS : Several years ago I made an effort to engraft apples on the common crab apples of this country , and met wjtli a complete failure . The scions were brought from the East , and were not in as good condition as scions should be ; though the most of them leaved out and grew very well at first , but all died the . second season . Several years ago I tried in the State of New York to grow tho pear on the same stocks , with like success . The scions were inserted from a few inches to two feet above the ground . Some of the pears grew from two to three feeUhe . first season—the apples not so lengthy ; but not one of either lived through the . second summer . The stock and scion appeared well united . Could this failure be ascribed to a want of sap ? or what can be the cause ? Iam wellpersuaded if the scions had been inserted near the ground , and the earth hauled about them , I should not h...
