FEEDING ROOMS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

FEEDING ROOMS NESTS . —It is not essential to success that the nests should be on the ground , though we always so construct them for the use of some ot our hens , m conformity with the general observation , that hens when left to their own choice usually do so . But whether on the ground or raised somewhat above it , they should be warm and partially secluded . The hen Hkcs privacy , and if left to follow her own natural instincts , will seek some shrubbery thicket , tuft of grass or rank weeds , ii out of doors , or in the manger of a shod—in short , almost anywhere , if she can escape the gaze of man or animal . To humor this propensity , we propose to lattice the front of the nest boxes , with small strips of lath , which not only give them apparent secrecy , but admit air , so desirable in hot weather . Why we give preference to latticed fronts to close boxes , is by reason of the constant circulation of air going on through the interstices . This has much more to do with the c...

Wire Vermin Proof Cora Crib . , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Wire Vermin Proof Cora Crib . , Mr . Editor : —Allow me to call the attention of your readers to a wire corn crib , gotten up by me , and now in process of being patented . This crib is very simple and cheap , aDd durable and will allow the drying of corn much more perfectly than any timber crib . When we reflect that the corn crop of the U . S . amounts in the aggregate to about 700 , 000 , 000 bushels annually , and that it needs careful preparation and drying in cribs to be marketable at its fullest value , and that where the largest proportion of it is produced , timber is scarce and lumber high , it will be seen that a cheap crib constructed of wire is a valuable addition to our agriculture . Nearly or quite 75 , 000 , 000 bushels will be grown tbe present season in this State , and in addition to the more perfect curing , we have to protect it from tbe ravages of the vermin which infest our cribs . This can be fully and perfectly done by my crib , and any farmer can build one ...

Will yon Ever Icnrn ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Will yon Ever Icnrn ? Editor of tlie Farmer : —I have lately traveled over a section of country from Carrollton to the south part of Christian county , and took some pains to notice the crops on the line of my trip . On the rolling lands on the route , the corn , wheat and other crops look , generally , well . But there is a large portion of the route passing over level lands , the soil of which contains a- good deal of clay , and the sub-soil even more . — Where this is the case , the ground is dry , baked , and the crops are , without exception , in a bad way . The wheat was drowned in the winter and spring ; the early spring crops were sown when the grounds were in bad order ; and corn was planted in adhesive mud , which by subsequent rains , and hot weather , has become baked and impervious to gentle rains , and the roots can scarcely be reached by atmospheric air . These lands , event year , in llicir present eondition , are likely to be affected in tlie same way . Now , unless...

Remarkable Fountain in Florida . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Remarkable Fountain in Florida . Taking a narrow path , we crossed through some dense underwood , and at once stood-on the banks of the Wakulla Spring . There was a basin of water one hundred yards in diameter , almost circular . The thick bushes were almost growing to the water s edge , and bowing their heads under the unrippled snrface . AVe stepped into a skiff and pushed off . Some immense fishes -attracted my attention , and I seized a spear to strike them . The boatman laughed , and asked me bow far helow the surface I supposed they were . I answered , about four feet . He assured me they were at least twenty feet from me ; and it was so . The water is of the most wonder ful transparency . Dropping an ordinary pin in the water—forty feet deep —we saw its head with perfect distinctness as it lay on the bottom . As we approached the centre , I noticed a jaggish , grayish limestone rock beneath us , pierced with holes ; one seemed to look into unfathomable depths . The boat moved...

•* THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

•* THE DAIRY . HOW GOSIIEN BUTTER IS MADE . The Southern Planter contains the following account of the process of making butter in Goshen , from the pen of Mr . Denniston , a practical butter maker : The cellar , where the milk is kept , should be cool , well ventilated , and clean . The milk ought to be strained into pans containing ten or twelve quarts each . If the weather is very warm , the pans ought to be set on the cellar bottom—otherwise on shelves . The milk ought not to be churned uutil it becomes thick , or loppered—the milk and cream are then churned together . Some dairymen skim off the cream and part of the milk , and el urn that , but Goshen butter is churned from the milk and cream . The churn used is the common dasher churn , driven by dog , horse or hand power , accord ing to the size of the dairy . The churn may be half or two-thirds full with milk ; and a pailful of cold water added before starting to churn . In cold weather , warm water is put in . The churning ...

Price of AVhrat in War . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Price of AVhrat in War . Wo have before alluded to the extravagant ideas that arc entertained in some quarters in volution to the effect of war upon food . No part of Europe was more ravaged by imperial armies , in the early part of the century , than Ital y and the Rhine provinces of Prussia ; and if we turn to the local prices of that day , we shall observe ! the facts . The present Piedmont formed then nine departments of France , and the price of wheat ranged in 1808 , from 23 f . per hectolitre , in the Appcnines , the highest price , to 15 s in I turn . At Turin the price was 15 . 85 f . per hectolitre , equal to $ 1 , 04 per bushel . In Belgium the range was 12 . b * 3 f . to 16 . 111 . ; the former price at Luxemburg , equal to 84 c per bnshel for wheat . This was after nearly twenty years of war , following a most terrible famine , which was the immediate cause of the revolution . The wheat product of the forty-four departments annexed to the empire , and comprising Holland...

The Com Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

The Com Crop . Mr . Editor : —I thought I would , with your liberty , just ask farmers to look at their growing corn crops , and see if there is any difference in the appearance of crops on deep ploived and shallow plowed land—on . land well drained and on land not drained . I saw specimens or . the different modes of cultivation as I came to town , and I think it will be well if we take note of the matter . Some of us will probably live to plant corn another year , and if we cannot learn anything by experience , we shall be likely to live very useless lives . The more I see of crops now , the stronger I am impressed with the doctrines put forth by the Farmer , that we shall need the use of the best agricultural skill to secure constant and large crops even on the best soils o £ Illinois . This can be done , and will be done ; but it will require industry and judgment to doit . , V- A -vN .-- » : ¦» _ - \ — - for Mr .

Tho "Manny Fremium" for 1 S 60 . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Tho Manny Fremium for 1 S 60 . Editor of the Farmer : —I am glad to see the notice of the State Society published in the papers , that the Manny Premiam —( Mannys Mower and Reaper)—is to be given for a crop of wheat to be raised in I 860 : Now , brethren farmers , who shall have that premium ? He that gets that Dremium , will not only get a valuable one , but it will be highly honorable to him . It will be the result of good culture , commenced now and continued until the wheat is ready for the reaper . No common cultivation will secure that premium . The land must be favorable in the first place—it must be worked well—the variety of wheat must be the best—the land must be drained—the crop must be taken care of when on tle ground , and when it is cut and threshed . I hope that there will be many competitors . Let us now see the best that the South can do with her best land and best cultivation—let us see what the Centre can do on her rolling and rich lands ; and let us see what the ...

Raising Chickens . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Raising Chickens . Mr . Editor : —We often fail in raising chickens . Tho hens bring off large broods , and many of them sicken and die . Various remedies have been proposed and some persons happen to have used them successfully . The pip is said to be caused by small worms getting into the wind pipe ; and that worms are picked up by the young chickens in wood yards or chicken yards , where they are said to be plenty . I have nothing to say about this ; but the present season I adopted what was i to rne a new plan , and it proved successful . I When the hen came off with her chick ens , I put her with the chickens into a large dry goods box , so that tho hen could fly out , but the chickens could not . There I kept the chickens for three weeks and fed them on dry lood , that is crumbs of stale wheat bread and corn Dread , and corn and sugar cane seed , ground coarse , with plenty of water , and occasionally I gave them very small bits of fresh meat . Every chick lived —indeed , none...

Crops in England . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Crops in England . We learn from the Mark Lane Express , of June 6 th : The weather this week has been of a most favorable character in all the southern counties of Englad—warm and forciDg , with heavy falls of rain at intervals , the thermometer being up to 70 deg . in the shade at mid-day , with occasional thunder storms . The crops generally have been pushed forward very rapidly , spring corn in particular , and grass lands having been greatly benefited . The clover now promises to be a heavy crop , and , from present appearance , some may be ready for cutting towards the close of next or the beginning of the following week . The wheat on the heavy soils is , if anything , too luxuriant , and on that account , would , with heavy storms , soon be down . This is the danger of the present season , the dry weather previously having been more favorable for this plant than the present very forcing weather—although this appears to have been confined to about half of England , in the mid...

Our Stale Fair . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Our Stale Fair . She gUinote < g » vuw ¥ . SPRIKIIELD , AIK 1 UST 1 , 1850 . This , as our readers are well aware , commences at Freeport on the bth September , continuing five days . The executive committee of ttie State Agricultural Society have made arrangements with the Rail Road Companies , so that persons can pass to and from the Fair at half price , and that articles to be exhibited at the Fair , will be carried there and returned free of cost . We are anxious that the people of Illinois shall patronize their State Fair . The State Agricultural Society is an institution of their own , got up and hitherto sustained by them , and has been of vast use in introducing stock into the State , in bringing into notice the best agricukural implements , and , in a word , in stimulating improved systems of agriculture and Horticulture , which have been productive of the best results .

Strawberries . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Strawberries . There is an increasing disposition among our farmers to add to their healthful fruits , an ample supply of strawberries . These can be secured with a little labor and attention . A few hours work will give the farmer bushels every year . It is evidence of an unthrifty or cureless farmer if it can be said of him that he does not cultivate fruits—apples , peaches , grapes , gooseberries , currants , raspberries , black berries and strawberries . We know of one farmer , near us , who transplanted the roots of the common black cap raspberry into his garden , and this year gathered bushels of tho finest berries , improved from their orig inal size , and better flavored than any of tho foreign varieties . All the small fruits make certain crops with us , and produce plentifully . None pay more liberally , however , for the care bestowed on the plants , than the strawbery . Of the strawberry , there are many varieties . Some prefer one variety , and another a different varie...

Cheat . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Cheat . The Oregon Farmer contains several articles in reference to the vexed question— Does wheat turn to cheat . —- In one oE those articles it is stated that the subject , several years since , was settled in this county—tufts of wheat having been found and exhibited on which there was growing wheat and cheat . We have known cases where roots of wheat , in which were embraced the foliage , stalks and seed of cheat , were triumphantly shown , and which on dissection , were found to contain roots of cheat , separate and distinct from wheat . Some fifteen years age we were authorized to offer a reward for a plant from the roots of which should be found growing cheat and wheat . The subject excited at the time great interest . We have no doubt that much diligence was used to obtain the plant for . which the reward was offered . Finally , one was brought from Christian county , and the fortunate discoverer claimed the reward . As we were interested in the matter—and as we wished that ...

Blackberries , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Blackberries , These are a very popular wild fruit of Illinois . But the wild crop is uncertain . A long drought at the season of their maturing will dry up the fruit , make it small , sour and disagreeable . — Can we not have this fruit , in the season , always in perfection ? This question can be easily considered . The blackberry blossoms late , and is not injured by frosts . The fruit , as a general fact always sets thick . Persons who have gathered wild blackberries have often noticed that the largest , fairest , sweetest , best , are usually found growing in the shade . Sometimes hushes can can he found oh which the sun never shines , and these will be loaded with the richest fruit . These facts furnish-useful instruction for the cultivation of the blackberry . Mark the plants of good varieties in the summer as they show fruit . In the fall dig them up . Plant them in your garden or orchard in hills four feet apart , and forget not this important rule—plant them so that but li...

Attendance at Fairs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Attendance at Fairs . Attendance at Fairs should be made useful . This can always be done . To attend a Fair and hurry through the different departments without investigating the use and value of the articles exhibited , may be amusing , but will be of little service . Let a man go to the Fair , examine the horses , mules , cattle , hogs , sheep , fruits , vegetables , cereals , agricultural implements , & c , & c , until he can get a definite idea of them , can fix their appearance and value upon his mind , and investigate and understand their advantages over the stock and co reals and implements , & c , to which he is accustomed , and thus give bis mind food for thought and reflection . Going to Fairs under such circumstances , will be a benefit to every man who aims at obtaining information whicli will be useful to him .

Premium Crop of Wheat for IS 60 . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Premium Crop of Wheat for IS 60 . We invite attention to the notice of a premium ( Maimys Reaper ) for the best twenty acres of winter Wheat to be- harvested in 18 G 0 . The premium has been offered thus early to secure the best cultivation of a crop of wheat for the premium . Hitherto the premiums have heen ottered after the seed was in the ground , and probably not a field was sown with the special design , to obtain bj improved cultivation , a great crop . There is now ample time to secure , by good cultivation , a premium crop of wheat . If a farmer believes he can make a crop by half plowing his ground once ; by sowing shrunk wheat broadcast over his ground filled with weeds ; half harrowing it in ; leaving the ground so that water will stand in the furrows and on the low places all winter and spring—and perhaps not sow . his wheat till October ; he will go on in that old mode of cultivation ; for such a farmer probably never takes an agricultural paper , and has an entire cont...
