Grapes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Grapes . A few years ago we had only two kinds of grapes that were deemed valuable for general cultivation , the Catawba and Isabella . Cultivators have been hybridzing and producing new varieties , until the list of American grapes is extended tosome dozens , many of them of great excellence . At the late fair in Chicago , more than a dozen most superb varieties wore exhibited . The Diana , Concord , Hartford Prolific , Clinton , Delaware , Union Village and several new seedlings from near Cincinnati . We tested the Delaware , and it could not possibly be impro ved . Some grape growers insist that it is an European grape ; the Traminer j but if it is the plant has become so well acclimated as to produce fine crops with open culture on American soil . The plants cost a good deal , some $ 2 or S 3 j but the other grape plants we have named , can be bought at most of the nurseries at fair prices . In a few years there will bo scarcely found a garden or farm in this country , destitute...

Have Farmers Fears that their Slock and Feed will be Short ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Have Farmers Fears that their Slock and Feed will be Short ? This should be thought of in time . There are ways for making a small amount of feed for stock go far . We repeat , this should be thought of in time . The commencement of saving should be at the commencement of feeding . Corn aud grains fed to stock , will go one third further , if ground , than if not ground ! Think of that . You can thus save or add to your means essentially for keeping your stock by grinding your grain . Again , you can make your fodder , your hay aud straw , go much further by cutting than by feeding it without cutting . Have your cuttiug boxes in order t The old fashioned one can be made to work well , and will cost you but little .

Western Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Western Agriculture . We nave been interested in reading the address of Hon . John A . Dix at the recent State Fair , in New York . This address is eminently practical . In one portion of it he alludes to the exhausting process of agriculture in the Eastern States , by which the soil becomes too poor to yield remuneratory crops . He says the same process of exhausting is going on on the prairies of Illinois , Wisconsin and Iowa . We quote from the address : 4 VI was last spring in a city of one of these States , on the Mississippi , and found the inhabitants throwing their manure into the river . I inquired the cause of this extraordinary practice , and was told in reply , that their lands were naturally fertile enough without artificial aid . A few years will bring with them , as time has everywhere else , the penalties of wastefulness , in diminished crops and lighter grains . The annual loss in the United States , from the abuse of the soil , is to be computed not by millions of ...

Old Times . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Old Times . The habits of the ladies have changed wonderfully , since the days of . the wife of Gen . Washington . She was a lady in every sense of that phrasej and especially was she the model of a ladyin her management of her household affairs . On one occasion , she was called upon by Mrs . Troupe , the accomplished wife of a British naval officer , of high grade . The lady gave the following account of the visit . Well , I honestly tell you , I never was so ashamed in all my life , Madame and Madame , and myself , thought we would visit lady Washington ; and as sha was said to bo so grand a lady , wc thought we must put on our best bits and bunds .

A correspondent of the Ohio Farmer , pronounces in favor of King Alfred , belonging to Mr . J . N . Brown of this connty . He says , however , that the decision was a hard one to make . He furnishes the following measurements ot the two animals which show a striking similarity in many desirable points , and a superiority in King Alfred in two of the most important points , while he also possesses a most decided advantage in shape of barrel , which the measurements do not indicate : SECOND DDKC OF AiansiB .

American Horses in England [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

American Horses in England The late signal triumph o £ Mr . Ten Broeck s horse , Starke , on the English course , added to the previous winning of the gentleman s horses , have wonderfully changed the opinion of the British jockeys in regard to American horsemanship . The London Field graceEully acknowledges the victory , although in the following paragraph it lays more stress upon the skill with which the horse was managed than upon tho superior points of the animal . And this is doubtless true , in ceneral , thoufh nerhaDS England cannot match Starke for speed on a short heat . In most other desirable qualities , also American horses are rapidly improving . The last ten years have shown a wonderful change for the better , and it is evident to every observer that the little State of Vermont for breeding , and the rest of New England and New York for training and bringing into repute , are developing and a race oE horses which bid fair to become as celebrated as any other in the wor...

Mercantile Business . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Mercantile Business . A good many goods are being Sold , and many of these goods on credit . There is no fact better settled than that there is not money to pay for the goods now in the hands of our merchants . There is not produce in the country to sell for money enough to buy the goods now in our stores , and pay any portion of the debts now due from farmers . Merchants can t stand such a business . Eastern merchants of whom they buy them will have the money if they break up the whole country . These truths might as well be told . There is little or no money in the country . There is not produce here to bring any large amount of money . We have not begun to see the bottom yet .

Horses Stolen , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Horses Stolen , Scarcely a week passes that we do not hear of horses stolen in this state . The thieves have their affairs well arranged—so well , that few horses are recovered . We call attention to the following circular , as proposing one means to find stolen Tiorses . It may not in all cases prove successful , but it would strike us as likely to be of essential service . We sec that the Illinois Journal already contains notices of horses stolen . Tho papers containing these notices are foundin every country town and leading village in the state , in less thau a week . Persons who know of horses or mules about the country under suspicious circumstances , would do well to examine the columns of the Illinois Journal . They might serve the owner by securing for him his stolen horses , and serve themselves by pocketing the reward offered for them . To the Rimers amt otters in Illinois tofto Jtttp ITma : Within the last few months valuable horses have been stolen in different parts of...

Benelils ol Agricultural Fnirs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Benelils ol Agricultural Fnirs . The principle of association—the practice of bringing men together bent on the same general object , pursuing the same general end , uniting their intellectual and their phyical efforts to that purpose , is a great improvement in the present age . And it has become essential to the best interests of the farmers of the Commonwealth , that these annual fairs should be established , and that they should be universally attended . From the meeting of men together who have the same general pursuits of life—that they may compare one with another—that they may compare with each other their experience , and that they may keep up a constant communication . It is in this point of view—in this greatly practical point of view—that these annual fairs are of importance . - Why , gentlemen , every man obtains a very great portion ot all that he knows in this world , by conversation . Conversation—intercourse with other minds—is the general source of most of our know...

The Illinois Farmer . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

The Illinois Farmer . We shall soon enter upon the 5 th volume of the Illinois Farmer . We are anxious to greatly extend the subscription of this paper . This can be done by a small effort on the part of those who are now subscribers . We ask them to make this effort . We believe that in doing this they will subserve the interest of our great agricultural community as well as our own . No farmer ought to be without an agricultural periodical . The price of ours is so low , that every fanner can have it . Will fanners , to save the sum of 75 cents , deprive their families of an agricultural periodical ? The produce of a single fowl , will pay for it . We give below a prespectus issued two months since . We ask our readers to examine it , and to do what they can to receive subscriptions . They will lay us under obligations in doing so . The main object the editor of this paper has in bestowing his labor upon it , is to advance the interests of the profession with the success of which ...

How a Chick is Hatched . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

How a Chick is Hatched . In conversation with Judge Eutler , of Norwalk , a few days since , he explained the operation of the hatching process , which is so beautiful and philosophical , that as we have never seen it explained in books , we repeat it to our readers . The chick within the egg breathes through the shell ; in the silk y membrane lining of the shell the blood circulates , and is thus brought in contact with outer air . The head of the chick is in a position as if it had been brought round under the wing and over on the back—a little one side of course—in such a position that the least muscular exertion will press the beak against the shell , and about in the middle , and when any violent struggle is made , it will break a little hole in the shell . Now this little movement of the bead , perhap © an eig hth of an inch forward , turns the chick in the shell so that when the head is drawn back into its normal position , it is brought against another portion of the shell ....

Lice oil Fowls . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Lice oil Fowls . A subscriber wishes to be informed how to exterminate the vermin that frequently infect hens and hen roosts , and & c . Prevention when practicable is always better than cure . Strict cleanliness about the roosts and nests , will always prevent hens from becoming lousy . The droppings under the hens should be removed frequently , the nests often renewed , and air-slacked lime and ashes scattered around the floors and roosts . Boxes of dry ashes and lime sheuld always be kept under or over where the fowls can have constant access to them , that they may wallow in at pleasure . With these precautions fowls that are free from vermin will never be infested . But where they have , become lousy the roosts should he thoroughly swept and cleaned , the straw and litter from the nests entirely removed , and the wood work and roost poles of the house whitewashed with fresh slacked lime , into which a quantity of sulp hur or tobacco-has been mixed . A day or two bef...

«¦» ... The Market for Grain . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

«¦» ... The Market for Grain . The United States Economist has a very interesting article under tbe above heading , from which we extract the following : The return to high duties on grain in France has been regarded as an abnegation of the free trade system that the Emperor waB supposed to favor The Corn laws were suspended in 1849 . and during tea years the trade has been comparatively free , bat the crops have not been good . Last winter , after the crops of 1858 had been ascertained to be abundant , the Emperor resolved on tbe Italian campaign , and as the protectionists bad clamored fcr a restoration of duties , and it was important to conciliate all parties on the eve of a war , the duties were restored , hut thiB time—when the crops are good—thBy are virtually inoperative . The duties , however , are bJth import and export—- 1 he frontier departments are divided into four classes , which are , in turn , for commerce , divided into sections , and every section has certain town...

THE BEST MODE OF P RESERVING EGGS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

THE BEST MODE OF P RESERVING EGGS —REMARKABLE PRESERVATION OF VITALITY IN EGGS . —The most simple and successful method of preserving eggs for fall and winter use is to employ a pint of lime and a pint-of salt , mixed with a bucket of water , and after packing the eggs in ajar or keg , with the small end downwards , in successive layers , then carefully turn in the mixture until the eggs are covered . In our travels in Kentucky we stopped at a place where probabl y the largest number of fowls are kept in the State , and we were shown some small chickens that were hatched from eggs that were packed in August ( 1858 , ) and preserved according to the above directions . Six of tho eggs thus preserved were marked and placed under a hen , together with eight fresh laid ones . Every egg but one hatched , which was one of the marked ones . The fact was so remarkable that it led to doubts in the minds of some of the family , whether there must not have been some mistake iu the matter , when...

INSECTS AS SEEN IN THE MICROSCOPE . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

INSECTS AS SEEN IN THE MICROSCOPE . —The wings of insects are very interesting objects , both to look at -unassisted , and with the microscope . The wings of the horse fly are found to be covered with minute stiff short hairs ; the black . net-work of lines that we see in them arc elastic honey tubes , over which the membrane is stretched like the silk of an umbrella over its ribs . Bees have a very curious mode of strengthening their flight , in the shape of hooks and corresponding doublings on the edges of their wings , so that when they are flying these are kept expanded by even extra aids to the elastie ribs and tightened membrane . Who would have thought of a beo hooking and eyeing himself out ic that manner ! All sorts of theories have held ground successively , respecting the feet of flies . First they were suckers , and they walked by means of exhaustion and atmospheric pressure ; then they were grappling irons , and they hooked themselves to microscopic inequalities by mean...

Gutta Percha . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1859

Gutta Percha . In its crude state , Gutta Percha has no resemblance whatever to India llubber , nor are its chemical or mechanical properties the Bame , nor docs the tree from which it is taken belong to the same family of trees , or grow in the same soil ; yet , from the fact that it can be dissolved , and wrought into water-proof wares , many , not informed upon the subject , have inclined to the belief that the two materials are identically , or very nearly the same . But nothing could be more erroneous , as may be seen by the following comparisons : Gutta Percha is produced from the Isonaudxa or Gutta tree ; is a sap of a brownish color which , when exposed to the air , soon solidifies , and forma tho Gutta Percha . of commerce . It is a fibrous material , much resembling the inner coat of white oak bark , is extremely tenacious , and without elasticity or much flexibility ; may be melted and cooled any Dumber of times without injury for further manufacture ; is not injured by c...
