CULTIVATION OF TOBACCO . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1842

CULTIVATION OF TOBACCO . CONTINUEO FROM PAGE 9 . Splitting and Culling .- * Tobacco is usually planted from the middle of May lo the last of June . And the cutting season usually commences about the middle of August , and is rarely finished until late in September . Between the planting and cutting of tobacco , the labor of attending to it is light , but very tedious . It requires more hands than any other crop , for tho same number of acres ; but weak hands and children can assist and do much of the work . When it begins lo ripen , stouter hands are required , though children may still aid in the subsequent operations . A little practice will enable the planter to dislinguish . very readily , the ripo from tho green plants . At the first cutting the former must bo selected and cut , leaving the others to become riper . When tobacco is ripe the leaves become spotted , with a greenish yellow color , and the loaves are so thick and ridged that by folding and pressing them gently betwe...

ADDRESS OF JAS , T . GIFFORD , ESCt . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1842

ADDRESS OF JAS , T . GIFFORD , ESCt . jjefort the Union Agricultural Society Ar GENEVA—CONCLUDED . Sheep , Wool , and Domestic Manufactures . — But few of our farmers have yet commenced • with sheep ; and those that are kept have every appearance 1 of doing well . They grow to a large size , become very fleshy on the native grass , and y ield heavy fleeces . In our climate the article of wool , must ever be one of absolute necessity ; no other material can probably ever be made to answer as a substitute for it . Northern Illinois is now purchasing from abroad almost the whole not only of clothing but even of socks and mittens made use of , and this makes a heavy draft upon the other productions of the country at their present low prices . Yes , with grass sufficient to sustain sheep by tens of thousands , annually going to decay around us ; with hydraulic power sufficient to manufacture not only our own supply , but a large amount to send off ; with provisions enough to sustain the ...

" SITU TIECIPES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1842

SITU TIECIPES . DISEASES OF Siaw-Ccnlinuedfnm page 8 . Led Water . — -ihe occurrence of this disease among sheep is very rare . Its nature and treatmentorc , however , allowed , by those who havo seen it , to be admirabl y described by Mr . Stevenson , in the 3 d volume of the Highland Soeieties Transactions . This disease commonly makesits appearance about the beginning or endofwinter , andnrsteffecls about the breast and belly although at times it spreads itself over other parts of the body . It consists in an inflammation of theskin , that raises it into blisters , which contain a thin , reddish , and watery fluid . These contine for a short time , break , discharge Iheir matter and are followed by a blackish scab . When the sheep are exposed to celd or wetness , the skin being fretted makes the blisters rise , or they often arise from cold , affecting the animal internally , thus producing a slight fever , which throws out these vesticles on the body , similar to the scabby erup...

HOUSEHOLD DEPARTMENT , " [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1842

HOUSEHOLD DEPARTMENT , WINTER BUTTER - —There is scarcely oneop . oration of ihe dairy more important to the farmer , than the manufacture of good butter • and in ihe winter time , experienced dairy-wo-men aro frequentl y disappointed in their endeavors to procure it . . Theptannowusedinray family with perfect and invariable success , was adopted from seeing its practical operation in the Winter , of 182 o , in the family of Dr . Jones , of Halifax counly , Virginia . Mr . Fossonden published an account of it in the first edition of his ICotnp elo Farmer , in 1834 ; but having seen man / plans recommended in agricultural journals duringthe present winter . for making good butler , of rather an equivocal character to my mind , I feel persuaded that ihe method npw in use by my family would prove a great saving in labor and cream , wherever adopted . The process is simply this : As soon as your milk is brought in , strain it into tin pans or pails , of a suitable size , and set them up...

"THE ILLINOIS FARMER . " [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 April 1842

THE ILLINOIS FARMER . This paper was started at Springfield about a year since b y CM . POLK Esqr ., thinking tho interests of agriculture iu Illinois required a more c .-nlral organ than the Union Agriculturist . He -has now come to the conclusion that by uniting the two , one would be made more valuable than cither is at present ; and accordingly , without requiring any bonus , has forwarded lo as his subscription list . Ho writes us , when [ see a good agricultural paper established in Illinois my principal object ia accomplished ; and to aid in attaining this great object ho . is willing to sacrifice the pleasure and profits of conducting the Illinois Farmer . Tho profits ( pecuniary wo mean , ) havo probably been no greater with him than wilh us ; but if a man s expenses be paid , the pleasures attendant upon editing an agricultural paper are . a sufficient compensation . Those who have been accustomed to receive the Illinois Farmer , will many of them regret much to hear this ...
