The Great Woolen Exposition ; [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 8 August 1868

The Great Woolen Exposition ; The time at which we go to press prevents our giving a report of the Exposition of Wools and Woolens , being held in Chicago as we write . We can only say that Its success , so far as the show of Woolen fabrics Is concerned , and the interest it excites In the minds of intelligent men all over the land is beyond the expectations of its most sanguine friends . The opening on Tuesday was really a marked event for Chicago and the West . - The show of wools embraces some of the most excellent samples and fleeces of both Merino and combing wools , and those growers who have made this showing deserve the thanks of all . That the wool department of the Exposition docs not equal in extent the woolen department ; that the many distinguished visitors from the East and from different parts of the whole country should see evidences of enterprise and a wise public spirit in wool manufacturers , and an apparent lethargy , and selfish inactivity on the part of tbe gre...

: ¦ . -r ^ tiggy . .. ; - . ¦ Some weeks since we published crop estimates from the Department of Agriculture Report for June . In this estimate , after giving the per cent , of increase in the amount of spring wheat sown in several States , It was stated that there was a general average of 28 per cent , increase in the Breadth of spring wheat sown . A correspondent wrote to us that this average was a mistake , as it was , If only the States enumerated in the report were calculated . We took it for granted that the statement made by the report was correct—that the Department , knowing tbe number of acres of wheat grown In each State last year and the : estimated per cent , of increase this year , had ascertained the aggregate increase , in bushels in all the States , and found this aggregate increase to be 28 per cent , of the amount of spring wheat grown last year , the report professing to give the Increase In the aggregate number of acres in wheat .

' ' ., ' • » > "'• , • ; Cattle Disease in Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 8 August 1868

., • » > • , • ; Cattle Disease in Illinois . In the vicinity of Tolono , 111 ., a station on the Illinois Central R . R ., at which many Texas cattle have been taken from the cars , a serious cattle disease is , or has been , prevailing . From the statements of correspondents , the disease seems to be fatal In almost every case , and a considerable number of cattle have fallen victims . From the same statements it would seem that the disease originated with the Texas cattle . We understand that Prof . GAMOBB , and Prof . BLANEY of Chicago , have gone to investigate the nature of the disease , and until their report is made public , we will probably have little trustworthy information as to the nature of the disease . Just as we go to press we learn with pleasure from Hon . HOBACE GAPBON , Commissioner of Agriculture , now in Chicago , that fully realizing the importance of this matter , he has , in conjunction with the Illinois State Agricultural Society , appointed a Co...

A Troublesome Weed , [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 8 August 1868

A Troublesome Weed , In reading the articles on Red Root in your issues of May 80 , and of June 27 , I thought I would leave It to men that were better posted than I . Is the 1 sample I enclose In this the weed In question ? I do not pretend to say whether it Is an annual or biennial . The field from which I plucked this sample was cultivated with corn and sown to wheat September 27 , 1867 . I did not notice , anything of the weed until this Spring . The field iad been laying to pasture for three years , previous to breaking for corn . The seed must have vegetated in the Fall after sowing because I found it the last of February when I sowed clover seed . It waa very small then but it grew very fast whet Spring opened : I have looked over the ten acres a good many time until the wheat got too large tb find it , still there Is some left . . I am satisfied tbat it starts in the Fall the same as wheat ; whether after plowing the seed eight inches under ground it would grow if not turned...
