ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND NOTICES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND NOTICES . The first volume of tho AMERICAN IIEVIKW is received from the editor . Tiiis is , after the model of tho Democratic , an older and better known journal , a literary and scientific work , wiili a political character . Those two publications arc the first successful attempts in our country at establishing a new . class of reviews ; and this commencement will form an era in our national literature . 1 ho English publications have proved that a political character is the surest guaranty of the success , of a ln-igaziuo or review ; and Ihcy have been for soma time , obtaining a largo circulation hero , greatly to our disadvantage in several points of view . There is . no want of political discussion in this country ; but there is , on the part of tho . ordinary newspaper prats , with no lack Vjf talent and good intention , a tendency to lower tho tone of conlioversy ; and in imre personal bickerings , to forget tho great ends of political or any oilier discu...

SUNDRY MATTERS FOR THE SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

SUNDRY MATTERS FOR THE SEASON. With this month the season for hard work most emphatically begins; and till the first of September the farmer will know but little respite. Mowing, pitching, raking, cradling, stooking, carting, and stacking, take their turns, giving only the relief which is afforded by variety. Brown brows will get browner, moist ones sweatier, and hard hands harder. All the year depends upon it. Let these two months drop out of the avails of the farm, and the grain grower and the stock raiser have toiled to little purpose this year. Let him be successful now, and he makes decided headway. But the farmer has no time to read long articles now, and we will only throw out short hints, which may often be useful if thought of in time. And first--the personal management. The farmer ought not to be in a hurry. Work will drive and demand strenuous effort; but nothing will be gained by hurrying. The collected man, who is master of his own energies, will not only save when the ...

COLMAN'S EUROPEAN AGRICULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

COLMAN'S EUROPEAN AGRICULTURE. It is but lately that this work has come into our hands , though three numbers of it have already been printed . We presume that a summary of its contents will be of interest to our readers who cannot subscribe for the work ; and as we have hitherto not been able to enter upon its review , we will commence with the part last received , and leave the beginning to a future occasion . The work is very neatly-got up , being printed on clean while paper with clear type , and each number is embellished with a fine steel engraving of an animal . It is written in Mr . Colmans peculiar style , more than usually labored ; as if its author was at work under the impression that his book was to be read by the whole country , and under the determination to make it worthy of approval . It is too early yet to prophecy ; but we are under the conviction that the book will only be partially successful—and this , not because Mr . Colman is not a pleasing agiicultural writ...

—— —~* V" » — SPIRIT OF THE AGRICULTURAL PRESS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

—— —~* V » — SPIRIT OF THE AGRICULTURAL PRESS . Mr . J . T . Plummerin the Indiana Farmer and Gardener says , that to keep off the striped bug he makes little balls of clay and dips them in spirits of turpentine and puts one of them near each hill ; and as long as the odor of it remain no bug will come near . Care must be taken to keep it from touching the plants . RATS . The Gardeners Chronicle gives the following mode of destroying rats : One quart of the best oatmeal ; two ounces of finelypowdered loaf-sugar ; six drops oil of rhodium ; six drops oil of carraway ; six drops oil of anise seed ; musk , quarter of a grain . Mix well together on a sheet of clean papar with a knife , taking every possible care to break the small lumps formed by the drops of oil in the oatmeal ; also not to touch the mixture with the hands . Keep it in a closely-covered pot for use . Choose a very quiet , retired , place , much frequented by rats ; place on six or eight pieces .. of clean board about t...

THE CROPS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

THE CROPS . Having just arrived at Springfield , ( 23 d June . ) from Chicago , passing through Du Page , Kendall , La Salle , Putnam , Woodford , Tazewell , Logan , Menard , and Sangamon counties , we send a word of our own observations concerning the crops . The prospects now are , there will be an abundant yield of grain of all kinds . In the four southern counties we saw numerous wheat fields that will be ready for the sickle this week , and we learn some in this county were cutting last week . Ten days of good weather insures a large crop through all this region , though the late rains , continuing for about ten days , have saturated the earth , and there is considerable danger of rust in consequence . A few hours of hot damp weather would ruin thousands of acres that now promise twelve to twenty bushels . South of this we learn they have harvested a good crop . We saw no wheat fields injured by the frost , or lodged , though we have been told there were some . Oais look well ,...

POSTPONEMENT OF THE U . A . S . SHOW . The executive committee of the society met at Nuperville on the 19 th , as per appointment , and in view of all the circumstances concluded to defer the cattle sltow fur one year . The teasons for this—which all grow out of the lateness of the season—are set forth in the letter of Mr . Dunlap , the recording secretary , below . It is to be hoped that in the course of the year the society will gel so far invigorated that it will come up to the work with a zeal and energy worthy of our State and the West . The whole proceedings will appear next month . MESSIIS . EDITORS : Enclosed are the proceedings of both meetings of tho Union Agricultural Society . Yon will see we have put over the fair one year ; on the whole I think we could do no better . We will now have time to prepare for a grand show , next , year , when I think we can do ourselves justice and not disappoint the expectations of citizens of Chicago and strangers .

MILK WEED . CUT WORM . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

MILK WEED . CUT WORM . MESSRS . EDITORS : I should like to know if there is any way of getting rid of the wzndering m -lk-wecd . There is a patch of it in my poach orchard that has not given up at all , for plowing and hoeing , these five or six years . I think , there is danger of its spreading , in corn fields : small pieces of the ro : it m : iy he carried by the plow , without being seen , to a distance from where they grew , anil there take roat ; and thus , in time , if there is no way of killing the weed , thewhole field may become a milk-weed patcli . If you , Messrs . Editors , or any of your correspondents , know of any way to get rid of it , others as well as myself would like to know how . Last year the cut worms were hard on some cornfields here . Some of the farmers had to plant the third lime before they could go to plowing ; meanwhile the weeds were growing and choking what the worms had left . I think that if fall-plowing for corn were adopted , this evil would be l...

RUST IN WHEAT . \ For the Prairie Farmer . U 1 A ,. CHURCHILL . ¦ Bast in Wlieal—by A . Beach . Mr . B . will accept my thanks for noticing my article on this subject , as it gives me an opportunity to bring the subject again before the readers of the Prairie Fariner . I would say to Mr . B . that many new things are called nostrums without cause by those who are too ignorant , indolent , or bigoted to examine ; and that if lie would observe the growth of wheat , in fields sown at different times in the same season , and that sown on dirl erentlsoils . from its , start in trie spring to ripeness , as I have , he might satisfy himself that it is frequently diseased long before the . rust appears . This season the leaves became brindled or spotted by discoloration when the plants were in blossom , and rust appeared : upon the leaves at , the edges of those spots long before the Kernel . was formed , and the leaves died before the- grain was filled . At about the time the rust appeared...

A FEW COMMENTS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

A FEW COMMENTS . [ For Ike Prairie Farmer . MESSRS . EDITORS : I propose to offer some few remarks on the May number of your paper . In doing so , I do not intend running opposition to the reviewer , whose particular jorovince it is to point out the peculiar defects or advantageSBt forth in each number . BAD FARMING—by John Wright , of Iowa . Some good ideas are advanced in this article , but the following would seem to require some little notice . Our western land is generally rich ; but I see it can be plowed so as to soon decline in cropping . This is done b y breaking up the land acd turning back the same way year after year . This should not be . Vegetation is on the top ,. ; and the land should be plowed so as to keep vegetation as near where nature planted it as possible . Using good economy in this way , our western soil will last a long time . Manuring will do no harm of a dry season ; but heavy manuring and a wet season soon grows all down in a rot heap . Now I call this d...

CHESS—POSTAGE IN ENGLAND-CRANBERRIES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

CHESS—POSTAGE IN ENGLAND-CRANBERRIES . MESSRS . EDITORS : The fear of that Mr . Thompson you have put to watch over us , would completel y have stopt my pen , had not you bid us take courage—still it is like a plunge into cold water . The controversy about chess will probably last some yeais longer . I believe that the same cause that makes winter . wheat die out , makes chess a spontaneous production . My reaaons for believing so are these : ( although the land and climate were different , and where chess is unknown . ) I have for several years in succession observed that where the winter wheat failed , there grew in its place more than half a crop of oats , and of a kind not cultivated by us . It is an acknowledged fact that the decomposition of different vegetables , and the pasturing of several kinds of animals for ajpng time Will each , cause to spring up a different variety of vegetables from those that grew there before . Their wh y may not chess be a spontaneous production g...

SMUT IN WHEAT * [ For the Prairie Fdfmer . ... J 1 Y S . ELLIS . . . . MESSRS . EDITORS : I am a great enCmy to smut in wheat , and this induces me to otter a fact to the public through your paper . Mr . S . 0 . Bennet s experiment was a strange one . Indeed I wonder if he tried again two bushels of seed per acre . The seed surely was ribt good , or the wheat would be too thick . , In answer to Inexperience I would say , that t year ago last fall f sowed good eWah wheat , with rid smut in it to be seen , and last harvest I gathered a fine crop of smut . - Hov ? comes this ? The fact was , the winter wheat ^ sown by me grew by the side of , spring wheat that was very smutty ^ and by that means it is my opinion the particles got into the winter wheat and propagated . For three years past I have not raised any smut in spring wheat , although my neighbors have raised a plenty for , me and themselves , too ,, My mode is to swim my wheat in strong brine , and lime it or put on good dry as...

These too friendly visiters will soon be swarming in every house in the land where admittance is yielded them ; nor will they care for any delicate hint that their presence is unwelcome ; their breeding is in a dunghill , and their subsequent manners are such as may be expected from so ignoble a cradling—in short they will enter every dwelling where a human being resides , and only y ield its occupancy in compliance with summary ejectment .

ELLSWORTH'S REPORT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1845

ELLSWORTHS REPORT . BUTTER . One of the most prominent reasons why there is so much poor butter made , is , that the salt used is not good . Even the best of our common salt contains a considerable quantity of impure matter . Rock arid bay salt , which are considered the purest that can be obtained , are mixed with small quantities of sulphate of magnesia and lime , nitrate of soda , and muriate of magnesia . The following mode is recommended to render it pure . Put into a large kettle a peck of salt , with ; clear rain water enough to dissolve it : boil it , and skim off every particle of scum that rises on the smface ; then dissolve one ounce of the carbonate of soda in four ounces of water , put it into the kettle , stir it well , then boil it again for ten minutes , skimming off the scum that rises ; then strain -the brine through several folds of . flannel . A considerable quantity of earthy matter will thus be found in . the bottom of the kettle , which is the cause of the . i...
