JPUEMIVJfJL ESSAY . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

JPUEMIVJfJL ESSAY . [ From the forthcoming volume of Transactions of the State Agricultural Society , now in press . ] BT ISAAC A . DEDors , or OHIO . Sorgho and Iirpliec Sugar Cane . In a treatise professing to discuss the characteristics as -well as cultivation and manufacture of an agricultural production adapted , as are there varieties of sugar millet or cane , to latitudes aud soils so various , it must be apparent to all that difficulties lie in the way of embodying in general directions , such formula as shall meet the exigencies of every occasion and circumstance . The following are based upon experiments and observations chiefly made throughout the Northern and Middle States , and ought rather to be received as general than special in their deductions . The Chinese-Cane has , thus far , given encouraging evidences of improvement in becoming Americanized on several farms to which my attention has been directed . I have observed a more vigorous development of the plant in * ...

Sheep in Spring . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Sheep in Spring . A . D . Nicholls writes to the Country Gentleman : Sheep should always be tagged before they are let into pastures . By tagging , I mean cutting all the wool from around the tail , thus preventing the sheep from getting dirty and diseased . The first grass always has > a laxative effect upon the sheep , and unless they are tagged , a considerable proportion of the flock will become dirty . The taggings arc to be put away until shearing , when they can be washed in soap suds , and after being dried can be put into the fleeces as they are done up . This is our practice , and we always inform the woolbuyer of the fact . There can thus be no loss in tagging the sheep , and the buyer cannot complain , as it is as well washed as the fleece . Two or three pounds are thus saved from every 100 sheep , which would be lost if they were not tagged . The lambs should also all be docked and all the ram lambs be castrated , ( unless the breeder wishes to reserve tho be...

1 Cranberry Culture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

1 Cranberry Culture . A writer in the Gcrmantovm Telegraph has collected a number of facts in regard to this fruit , in a measure new to us , and of a character to encourage the culture of this important fruit . He writes as follows : The American Cranberry ( Oxycoccus Macrocarpus ) is so familiar to us that a detailed description of the beriy would be useless j but of the many thousands who enjoy this racy fruit , very few know whether it grows on trees , bushes or vines ; and fewer still have any idea of the extent to which it is cultivated in some sections of our country ; nor of the quantities annually exported to England . The market value of this berry ranges from three to six , dollars per bushel , varying of course , as do all other fruits , with the supply and demand , but rarely even in the most productive seasons falling below three dollars . The American Cranberry is divided by growers and dealers into three varieties—the JBell , the Bugle , and the Cherry . Although the...

White Beans . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

White Beans . EDITOR OF THE F AKMER : The information and instruction furnished by the Illinois Farmer are generally of a practical and always of a reliable character . In this respect , it very materially differs from some of its quite fashionable and very numerous cotemporaries ; hence its great service in promoting the agricultural interests of our State . The western farmer , with extremely few exceptions , does not need au extended grammatically elaborated , and finely spun theory upon the production of any of the great stap les to which he looks tor the support of himself , his family , and the government that protects him . That knowledge which was gained by experience , and is communicated tons in plain , brief English , is just what at all times we need , and will gladly receive . The admirable premium essay on sheep , in your last nnmber , is a fine illustration of the idea I suggest . That article is so very sensible , so absolutely free from twaddle and highfalutin , tha...

WOOL-GROWERS' CALL . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

WOOL-GROWERS CALL . The subscribers , having at heart the interest of the wool-growers of the West , suggest that a fair be held at Cleveland , at as early a day as convenient after shearing , for the purpose of exhibiting the different styles of wool , and that the awarding committee of manufacturers be selected , from whom woolgrowers will be likel y to receive many suggestions , which may prove useful in enabling them to select the most desirable style of wool to grow . We would further suggest : first , that Goodalc & Co ., of Cleveland , be requested to make the necessary arrangements for carrying out this fair : second , that such competition be open to every woolgrower in the Union : third , that manufacturers be invited to attend such fair . We believe that an interchange of views would result in the mutual benefit of manufacturers and wool-growers , whose interests are identical . We have , in some sections of the country , Market Fairs , for the sale of horses ...

Fertility of the Holy land . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Fertility of the Holy land . No country of equal size probably contains greater inequality of surface than Palestine —varying from the peaks of Lebanon . 10 , 000 feet above the sea level , of the plain of Jerico , 1 , 300 feet below it . Hence the Hol y Land afforded almost every variety of vegetable productions ; and when in its glory , populous and cultivated , and enjoying the smiles of Jehovah , it was not unworthy of the glowing rhapsody of Dr . Hamilton , the emphatic terms of which arc almost all from tho Bible : A better country than this earth did not contain . It was a deli ghtsome and * a pleasant land / a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations . It was variegated and intersected with all the elements of sublimity and beauty , with whatever was bold and gentle . It was a wealthy place . Aroniantic herds covered its hills , and the fairest flowers decked its glens . The rose was in Sharon , and the lily in the valleys . The voice of the turtle was heard in the land . The...

Evergreens . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Evergreens . 8 & . c Ktthwfc <| nvww * 8 PBIXGFIE 1 D , JUNE 1 , 1850 . The discussions at the late meeting ofthe State Horticultural Society , at Bloomington , have directed tho attention of farmers on the prairies to the planting of trees for protection of their farms and orchards from the winds that sweep over them . Much can be done to effect this object by the use of deciduous trees . The silver maple is probably the best for this purpose , because it grows quick , makes a dense head , is beautiful , and the wood is good for fuel and timber—not the best for timber , but can be made very useful . Evergreens , however , are the most perfect protection . Hitherto the demand for these trees has been so small , that nurserymen could not sell them at prices which would place them within the means of farmers for planting out for protection , but this will not long be the case . We venture to say that more evergreens will be planted out iu the nurseries of Illino...

Protection for Orcliirds . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Protection for Orcliirds . On a visit to Morgan county , on the 19 th April , we were struck b y the appearance of a peach orchard on the Seibert farm , near Jacksonville , in full blossom—a sight we did not again see any where . We had no time to visit this orchard , but its situation demonstrates the advantages of protection on the south aud west sides—a doctrine set forth in the address of Hon . M . L . Dunlap , at the meeting of the State Horticultural Society , at Bloomington , in December last , and which received the entire approbation of the Society . The peach orchard was on high land , and had a timber protection on the west and south . We have said that we saw no other peach orchard in bloom . We did not . The trees of this orchard were covered with bloom . We regard this evidence in favor of the theory announced at Bloomington as very important . SUGAR CANE—A NEW THEORY . —R . Emmerson , Jr ., of JRockford , has invented a mill for expressing the juice of the sugar cane ...

Apples for Illiaois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Apples for Illiaois . In the fall of 1857 , the Northwestern Fruit Growers Association held a meeting at Alton . There was a large number of fruit growers present , and we believe nearly every portion of the State was represented . Their proceedings were highly interesting . Among these were the selections made of different kinds of apples for this State . It will be recollected that this convention was held after the severe winters which destroyed many of the varieties of apple trees which before had succeeded well in our orchards . A list ofthe selections made was published at the time , but it was so obviously incorrect , that we did not copy it into the Farmer . Wo have now before us a true copy ; which we give , furnished to the Prairie Farmerf by the Secretary , Hon . M . L . Dunlap . Zifet of Apples . Recommended by the North-western Fruit Grousers Association , at their Meeting at Alton , October , 1857 . EDS . PRAIRIE FARMER : —The committee reported a list for Northern Ill...

The War . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

The War . Is there to be a general European war ? On the surface , every thing looks like it , but our belief is that such a war will not now take place . The crowned heads have too much at stake in a geneTal war—thrones , kingdoms , dynasties . If war is the result of the invasion of Sardinia by , Austria , and France and Russia act together , these two will he the great powers of Europe ; and they will divide out Europe and portions of Turkey in Asia , as will suit them . France will have the control of Italy ; Russia of the Danubian provinces , and Constantinople and the country in its neighborhood . Hungary may be made a nation to cripple Austria aud Germany j and England , with all her wealth and strength , will sink to a sec-ond-rate power . Thus speculations are now running j hut the result of battles may change the prospect , and Napoleon , instead of being King of Italy , may again be an exile from conquered France . The results of war in Europe are so uncertain and so vast...

The Season . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

The Season . Iu sotae portions of Illinois , the spring months have been very wet , and even at this time there is much land which , under favorable circumstances , would have been put in corn , that is not yet plowed . As a general fact , however , a vastextent of land is planted with corn . There is time yet for corn planting for two weeks . Good corn was made last year planted on the fifteenth of June . On the whole , the prospect for a corn crop is good—very good . Of wheat , we hope to have an ordinary eropj and the same fact we may state in regard to oats . We are told that our farmers are planting an unusual quantity of land in potatoes . We hope that Sangamon county will not have to import most of the potatoes required for the consumption of her people , another year , from Missouri , Michigan and Minnesota . Meadows look well . We trust our farmers will heed the experience of the past , and provide fodder for their stock the coming winter . Now is the time to do it . Hungar...

Hog Cholera . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Hog Cholera . We have seen it published in the papers that there has been hog cholera at Earmington in this county , and near Carrollton , in Green count y . We have our doubts upon this subject , and will explain . Our opinion is that the hogs which were said to have been killed bv the cholera had been fed dry food for the winter , and were turned upon the fresh herbage of Spring , which , in consequence of excessive rains , possessed but little nutrition , that they gorged themselves with this green food and that it purged them to death . That is our explanation of the matter . We hear of no further losses of Hogs in Farmington , and the farmers in that nei ghborhood are hearing no loss of their hogs from cholera . A disease which would sweep off our hogs would be a sad calamity . We do not think that the prevalence of such a disease is threatened . We shall have a great crop of corn in the fall . We want hogs to eat it . Every farmer ought to keep his eye on his hogs—do as well a...

Now is the Time ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Now is the Time ! Jbarmers ! havo you put in all the seeds , for grain , and fodder , and roots , which will mature crops this season ? If not , now is the time ! A few days and you will be too late for many of them ; and perchance your purses will be lank in consequence . Tour stock may suffer next spring , and you may have the mortification to sec many hides stretched upon the fence and smell the effluvia from dead stock upon the Prairies ! There are many farmers to whom it is not necessary to address this language They have their work done and well done . They do not depend upon luck to make crops . They put their own shoulders to the wheel , and the wheel has to move . But there are some who will bear nudging constantly . Corn can be put in yet . Hungarian grass seed can be sown yet . Immense amounts of the best forage can be made from the sugar cane plant , sown in hills , in drills or broadcast . One acre of good sugar cane fodder will feed more stock than can bo fed from five...

The Exodus from Pike ' s Peak . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

The Exodus from Pike s Peak . Our s is a peculiarly excitable race . — The stories of adventurers , to Pikes Peak , and the false statements published in the border papers of gold having been found there , produced a mania among that class of onr people who do not like the slow advancement made by prudence , economy and industry , in securing the means of living and wealth . A large number of this class of our people left their farms and workshops and other employments , gathered means for an outfit , and with the earliest spring weather , started for the supposed land of gold . Few of theso adventurers were of a class to dig and delve , where small quantities of the shin ing dust would be obtained , and after a few days residence on Cherry Creek , they took up their packs and are now making their way , as best they can , to their abandoned homes , east of the Missouri River—where they will become wiser if not better men . We do not regard the return of many Pike s Peakers , as evid...

Hungarian Grass . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Hungarian Grass . But little of this grass ( or Millet ) was sown in this section of country until last year . Such was the demand for the seed last spring , that unscrupulous men put into market the seed of the common Italian Millet for the Hungarian . We are inclined to believe that in every case where there was dissatisfaction with the crop , it was where , the wrong variety of Millet had been sown . We have had the assurance of many farmers that the Hungarian Millet came up entirely to their expectations on the amount of crop produced and in its excellence of food for stock . Mr . A . E . Constant , a well known farmer of this county , and at present , a resident of this city , raised a small field of Hungarian Millet last year . He said his horses lived on it while it lasted la 3 t winter , and did quite as well as they would have done on the best oatsand he had as lief have the Hungarian Grass as oats for Stock . Our farmers , who cultivated the crop last season—supposing that...

Cotton Growing in Central Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Cotton Growing in Central Illinois . A gentleman of Mississippi has sent the editor of this paper , and B . F . Johnson , Esq ., of Urbana , a package of cotton seed , for distribution among those who wish to make experiments in cotton growing in central Illinois . Mr . Johnson , in a communication to the editor of this paper , thus speaks of the prospect : { l I was gratified at last to get a sight of a specimen of that cotton seed . Send along that bag as soon as may be . I wish to plant a few rows , and will distribute the balance—or more properly , the remainder . f I am not disposed to think there is any thing more than a chance—a slight one—that cotton can be profitably grown with us on the prairie j but the value of such a success would he incalculable . There are several faets that arc worth remembering in this connection . It is true that cotton will grow in this latitude , but the season is too short . It cannot be profitably raised on account of our early frosts . Now , w...
