Wheats [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Wheats The wheat crop in thissectiouof the State is of good quality , but lacks in quantity . A good deal of it was winter-killed and much of it was thin on the ground . There were some excellent fields . New and drained ground , if sowed early , generally yielded well . We regret to say that in our opinion the prices of wheat will be low . The erops are good throughout Europe , and in this country there will be a surplus of wheat , for which the foreign demand will be next to nothing . Nor do we think there isany chance for high prices within the next twelve months—unless all Europe shall be engaged in War . We have looked for an advance in wheat in consequence oftheprcsentEuropcan War . But trade has proved that Europe does not want the wheat of our fanners or their beef or pork in any quantities . Europe wants our gold ; and she is carrying it off in large amounts . She is crowding upon us her manufactured goods—a good portion of the value of which is made up of wheat and other p...

Tlie Sugar Cine . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Tlie Sugar Cine . There has been a good deal of Sugar Cane planted about this county—not in large fields , hut in small patches . Tho Cane is likely to bo very fine , good size and rich in juice . Well , it is about time now to make some arrangements for working it up into Sugar and Molasses . Do not wait to do this until there is no time to make the necessary preparations . A few farmers should unite and get mills and boilers . These wi , l last many years and Molasses can be made that will not cost the farmer 25 cents per gallon . We have no mills or boilers for sale , but can procure such for those who desire them .

TIMOTHY GRASS . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

TIMOTHY GRASS . THE BEST TIME FOR CUTTING . This grass ( Phleum pratente , ) so universally known and highly valued by American agriculturists , was originally introduced into the country by Timothy Hanson , of Maryland , from whom it derives its name . It is known as catstail in England , herdsgrass in New England States . It is also a favorite grass in Sweden , where it is extensively cultivated . It is a perennial , bulbous-rooted p lant ; the leaves are broader than those of most other grasses , and rough , with long sheaths . In the early stages of its growth , it resembles a diminutive plant of Indian corn ; stalk long and jointed , surmounted when mature by a long , hairy spikelet , containing the seed . The first year after sowing the seed , the young plants consist of single bulbs , scattered ever the surface of the ground at considerable intervals , and rarely blossoming . In the spring of the second year , the plant throws out a number of new bulbs in a similar manner to ...

Eastern Tree Peddlers . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Eastern Tree Peddlers . From tho Valley Farmer . MESSRS . EDITORS : —As guardians of the interests of the western farmers , I have been somewhat surprised to see that that have not , through the Valley Far- ¦ mer , taken more pains to caution them against purchasing trees and plants from Eastern tree peddlers , who are now traveling over the West , and particularly our own State , in great numbers . With a carpet bag in their hand , containing two or three extra garments , and some beautifully colored plates of fruits and a nurseryman s catalogue ( no one knows how obtained ) , they travel from house to house , boring every farmer , urging him to buy , even when he tells them he wants none of their trees . These peddlers possess wonderful assurance and press their suit till nearly ki . ked out ot * doors . Their consciences are very pliable , and they are ready to guarantee that every tree they sell will produce just as fine fruit as their engravings represent . They tell the farmer...

Norton s Seeding Grape . This is a hybrid , produced from a cross of the Bland and Miller s Burgundy , by Dr . N . Norton , Richmond Va . It has been cultivated as a Wine Grape at Hermann Missouri , for the last eleven years . Mr . George Husmann , of that place , gives the following notice of ic in the Valley Farmer . He says that every thing he states in regard to it are the results of his own observation and experience . Mr . Longworth , of Cincinnati , is now cultivating this crape . 1 st .

Hints for the Season . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Hints for the Season . I . Corn for soiling may yet be sown . — Many farmers are short of grass , and a good supply of green feed , during the fall , will be found of great uie . Sorghum may also be used for a like purpose . We prefer drilling to broadcast sowing . It requires less seed and the crop is more regular . IL Buckwheat may be sown after the first rain . The extreme hot and dry weather of the last few weeks , is unfavorable to the coming up of the seed . A great breadth of buckwheat has been , apd is being sown , on the ground injured by the June frosts . Be sure and obtain good fresh seed . HI . Keep your dairy cows in good pasture if that is possible , this dry weather . If the feed is deficient , the milk will decrease in quantity , and no amount of fall feeding will bring them back to the old standard . Young stock should now be well attended to , taking care that they have sufficient feed to keep them growing . IV . Dont let the cultivator , or shovelplow , or horse-h...

Valuable Recipes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Valuable Recipes . Green String Beans can be used for winter use . Pick good tender sweet string beans , cut them into pieces about threequarters of an iuch in length , throw them into boiling water , let them stand five minutes ; then , having the oven heated just hot enough to avoid burning the beans , spread on tin or earthen dishes set them into the oven , and let them remain there till perfectly dry ; when they should be put up in small hags , and hung in a cool , dry place . When you wish to cook a mess of corn and beans , put them to soak over ni ght in warm water , and cook them as usaal . Ithubarb Wine . A valuable wine-can be made of the juice of the Rhubarb stalk . The juice of the rhubarb is extracted by the same process that currant , elderberry , or any other juice , and mixing with the juice an equal quantity of water . To each gallon add three and a half pounds of fair quality of New Orleans sugar . Put in barrels or casks filled full , and fined with isinglass ; bei...

What is Expected of the Farmer . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

What is Expected of the Farmer . The great problem which our farmers are called upon , to solve , is this : How to produce large crops at a fair profit , and at the same time increase the fertility of the soil . A farmer s best capital is the productiveness of his farm . The process , now we hope fast disappearing from practice in New England , of skinning the land , is like paying compound interest on the money one loans ; whereas , so treating the soil as to add to its productive power , is putting money into a bank that never breaks , never repudiates , and not only pays its interest promptly , but adds every year to its principal . A farm , says Beecher , is a vast manufactory . Instead of buildings and machinery , you arc to carry on manufacturing operations through the agency of the soil . No laboratory turns out a greater variety of products ; none requires for its hi ghest success more knowledge , skill , and business tact . If a chemist were obliged to evolve his various pr...

Deep Culture a Means of Warming tlie Soil . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1859

Deep Culture a Means of Warming tlie Soil . A correspondent of the Mark Lane Express furnishes an able article upon this subject , from which we make the following extract : We all know that heat and moisture are the two elements of decomposition and rapid growth , as shown in tropical countries . Deep and loose cultivation tends to this result . Possibly the action of light may also be important . One cause of the rapid _ growth of marketgarden vegetation , is depth of cultivation combined with the subterranean heat of the decomposing manure ; and wherever there is heat , moisture is attracted . — The necessity for a more perfect cultivation is obvious ; even on a fallow you may pick up small , hard knobs of clods , which on breaking into fragments , exhibit a little treasure of unexplored and unavailed of territory , confirming the great JETHRO TULL S principle ofinfinitessimability in cultivation . I have great faith in the use of Croskill s clodcrusher in very dry weather , for ...

Had our subject received far more attention at a far earlier day , not so many of the youth of our land had left their homes for adventure and , we must add , in too many cases , for failure . Not so many hearthstones had been left desolate ^ not so many Rachels had been mourning for their children ; for , on looking back from effect to cause , we see , in many instances , unattractive homes and rayless firesides as the perhaps unsuspected but no less real cause of this L . ? fortunate desertion on the one hand , and this lonely regret on the other .
