Ornamental Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Ornamental Trees . We occasionally notice the planting out in the gardens and streets , Sugar Maples taken from the woods . — These sugar maples are of stinted growth and require to be planted a long time , in the open air , before they become acclimated to the exposure ; and , after that , it will be many years before they become handsome trees , if ever . Now , if our citizens want beautiful , quickgrowing maples—that will make handsome shade in three years—they should obtain silver maples from the nurseries . These tan be had from ten to fifty cents —depending on size , and they are beautiful and perfectly reliable trees . No handsomer , deciduous tree can be planted in the town . EARLY RISING . —What deep delights , what chances , perhaps of heaven itself , we Bluggards lose 1 To he awake and out in summermorn at dawn , is to be first in anew Eden garden , alone with the God of old ! what a privilege ! ( our Eve has been left asleep in the four-poster , and the serpent himself k...

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

Potatoes . Potatoes for early crops have been planted . They are looking well . — There is time yet to plant for the late crop . New ground is beBt . They delight in high ridges . It is well to plant pure seed . The crop always looks better and brings better prices in market , if of one variety . BostonBlues , White Neshannocks , Pink Eyes , and Irish Greys , are approved varieties . There is no better potatoe , however , in our opinion , than the White Mexican . WHY WOX T PEOPLE LEABN . —Thousands of pine trees from Michigan , have been purchased by our people this spring , which were dead when they were purchased , and the purchasers , besides paying their money for these trees , have exhibited their folly in planting them out . This folly has to be regularly acted over every spring . If you want good evergreen trees , they should be purchased of nurserymen , taken np in good order and their roots kept moist until planted out . How TO RAISE SQUASH , MELON AND CUCUMBER . PLANTS . —...

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

Stumps . We occasionally Beo a fine piece of of land covered with Btumps—marring its appearance and rendering its cultivation -with the plow very difficult . A writer in the Iowa farmer , thus details a plan by which they can be got rid of : — Provide yourselE a pole , or lever , 25 feet long , and about four inches in diameter at the smaller end , and abont ten or twelve at the larger end . Then get a good strong chain , ( I used a very heavy logging chain , with a ring on each end , ) a wedge and beetle , and you have everything necessary . The manner of operating is this : — Hitch a yoke of cattle to the smaller end of the pole or lever , and drive up to the stump to be extracted ; haul the pole in such a manner as to leave about three feet of the larger end past the stump . — Then take your chain , and fasten it to the pole , by throwing the chain around the pole , and running one end of the chain through the ring on the other end . Then fasten the chain to the stump , by passin...

"Horse Thief Detector . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1859

Horse Thief Detector . EDITOR ILLINOIS FARMER : I find in your April number of the Illinois Farmer , that a Mr . John H . Hosford has written a line in favor of a plan to detect horse . thieves , and to recover stolen property , similar to one proposed by me some time ago . I am glad to see this matter again before the public , and hope that Mr . J . H . Hosford ond others will continue to write , and that the press and the farmers will continue to talk and act on this grievous evil , until wo csn get a paper started to advertise all stolen property , similar to a counterfeit detector . Say let a paper be published twice a week in Springfield , to be called the Horse Thief Detector . Let a prospectus he published , and any and all that wish to subscribe , do so . Horse and vigilant companies could subscribe—say five numbers for each company j all sheriffs and constables ought to have a copy j and when any man had a horse stolen , he could for a dollar have his stolen property advert...

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

Corn . The past month has been a busy one with farmers . There was a good deal of wet weather in the Central parts of Illinois , and but little low land was planted in corn . The uplands are planted and the corn looks well . The flat lands will yet be planted . We ought to recollect that much of our last year s crop of corn was planted in June , and most of it ripened well . The early varieties—white flint , yellow flint , red blaze and King Phillip mil ripen well planted in the middle of June . HUNGARIAN GRASS SEED is now a scarce article . It cannot be had in Chicago or St . Louis at any price . Many of our farmers were so improvident the past winter as to feed out this seed to their stock . Farmers 1 see to it that you provide food foryour stock next winter . GAS TAR EOR TEE PEACH-BORER . —A correspondent of the American Farmer writes that he has found gas tar a preventative of the ravages of the peach borer . He had previously tried lime , ashes soot , sulpher , tobacco stalks ,...

Insects , So . 2 . Foe tti . IUinota Farmer . MuspimnoKo , Jackson Co ., ni .. May 23 , 1859 . Mr . Editor : —The errors in my former communication as published are too numerous to attempt correction , therefore I will let them pass , hoping this may share a better fate . I will still confine my remarks to the Loeuslidae , but before leaving the genus Tetrix , I must state that the specimens I allude to as being distinct from T . parvipennis , are the females of T . lateralis . The species of this family probably most common are those belonging to the genus Locusta , Leach ( Oedipoda , Latr , ) which may be distinguished from the other very common genus Acrifdium thus . The former has the wings longer in proportion to the body , the throat , prosternum smooth , while in the latter it is furnished with a point or process rising up just in front of the anterior legs . It is to the genus Locusta the celebrated locusts of tho East belong , hence we may infer the destructive qualities of...

There is no single product of the soil that sustains so much of human life as rice . It forma wholly or in part , the food of more than two-thirds of the human race , for it is made the staple article of sustenance in the densely populated regions of the Eastern hemisphere included within the tropics , and the southern portion of the temperate zone . In China , with its three hundred millions of inhabitants , if in any province of the empire the rice crop is materially injured by inundation , or by long continued drought , a famine in that district ensues , and thousands perish . Rice is somewhat extensively cultivated in Europe , especially on the islands of the Mediterranean , and in the countries that border upon its shores . It was early introduced from Madagascar into the West Indies , and ...

Fruit Growing in Oregon . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1859

Fruit Growing in Oregon . MAUIOX CO ., STATE OF OREGON , \ April 25 th , A . D . 1859 . J Editor Illinois Farmer : — -3 Iay I occupy a space in one of the numbers of your Farmer ? The subject of my remarks may not be immediately pertinent to the science of Pomology in Illinois ; but , to amateurs or Pomologists of our country at large , all information , concerning fruit growing anywhere , is interesting . Many of your Illinois readers may one day , be fruit growers in some of the beautiful green valleys of Oregon . The people of the Eastern and Northern States supply the European market with excellent green apples , for which they receive remunerating prices . The people of Oregon , must , in like manner , supply the markets of California , Australia , Sandwich Islands , and China , with luscious fruits , peculiar to this country . And here I would remark , that the science of Pomology and farming must all be learned anew , in this most singular climate and soil . As soon as the Tr...

Wheat ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1859

Wheat ! Editor of the Farmer : —I recollect , when three years ago you cautioned our farmers against depending upon a wheat crop , in Sangamon county , that you was often censured . We have tried the crop three times more , and if there has not heen a uniform failure , it has come very near to it . I believe that wheat can be raised here under favorable circumstances—when tho ground is new—when the laud is rolling , so that the water can run off—the wheat well put in and the winter and spring favorable . In the last twenty years I have seen many noble fields of wheat in Sangamon ; and I have seen years when farmers have lost tho use of their land , lost the use of their labor , and their seed , in endeavoring to raise wheat . This has been so often the case , that it has become a prov erh with me , that a farmer who sows wheat for ten years will usually fail and lose his farm . Now is a good time to think of this matter seriously . We have not had a crop this year . We might have do...

Chinese Cane for Slock . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1859

Chinese Cane for Slock . MR . EDITOR : —An attentive examination of several leading agricultural papers last winter and spring , has satisfied me that tho Chinese Sugar Cane , sown broadcast , maybe mowed at least twice in the season , and the product be used as a most valuable food for stock . I am led to believe that for this purpose it will prove a more valuable article for cultivation than Hungarian millet . The land should be well prepared for this crop ; ploughed deep and well , and if the seed is drilled in , it will answer a good purpose , and if sowed broadcast it ought to bo ploughed in , or harrowed in well , and if the ground is rolled afterwards , the better . When the plant is up three or four feet , it should he cut and dried and put away for winter . In a few weeks there will be another crop from the same plants , which should be cat and dried and housed in the same T ? ay . The Cane , too , may be grown to its full size , cut , placed away in the fall and can be fed...
