DOTS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 September 1845

DOTS . [ For Ike Prairie Farmer BY JOHM MA . 1 JBOCK . MESSRS . EDITORS : I said in my communication in your August number , that should anyone notice what I said , I would then give my views , with the facts , arguments , Sec . in relation to the orig in or cause of hots . You say there is no more doubt about the origin or cause of hots than there is about the origin or cause of frogs , or of horses themselves . They are the larva ; of a fly , ( msl . ru . s itqui , ) well known to every person who lias had the care of horses in the summer . There is no doubt that those gnats are the cause of hols ? perhaps not , in your mind at present ; may be I will put a few doubts in your mind and your readers too , before i . am done with it . It is an axiom indisputable that every tiling is the effect of a cause , and that the same cause must exist to produce the same cllect . Well now if these gnats are the cause of bols , without them hots could not exist—could they ? No . Well , suppose v...

HEDGE BOW WIIEAT- &amp;lt; -EAIiLY SOWING . \ For the Prairie Farmer . I 1 T R . , r . CROSS . MESSRS . EDITORS : The farmers through this section of the country have about finished cutting their grain ; much of it however is yet in the field , and not secured : but this week , if we continue to have fm « weather , will finish slacking or housing nearly all of it . A better quality of wheat , both fall and spring , was never raised on Rock River . In some instances the quantity may have fallen short of ihc expectations of some ; but the berry is as good as could have been anticipated . For spring wheal we are raising hero mostly hedge row wheat ; the head is-quite short , with a long heard , and looks when growing much like barley . The grains in the head are quite thick , and are short and plump , and weigh heavy , ft is driving out all other kinds of spring wheat from this neighborhood . Yourself and correspondents have been continually re- ^ inmcnding sowing winter wheat earl...

WOODBURN AN !) JUDGE ROBINSON . \ For the Prairie Farmer . nr J . MUGGINS . MESSRS . EDITORS : In the June number I notice a reply from Judge Robinson , which I will only ask a little space for replying to . The Judge is evidently much fatigued from his long journey , ami not in so good humor as when he set out . Wo are sorry he should take it so hard , because we presumed to criticise Lis remarks touching this place . Wc were not angry , and only intended to give him a little bit of a cat hauling , which he acknowledges he received . We did not charge the judge with doing us intentional injustice . We concluded however that lie could not have written from personal observation , and that he took poetical licence not . allowable even to descriptive travelers . He stated that . Bunker Hill was three miles farther south ; we call it . east . He said we had several good English families , which is very due . But when lie says several of them have fine flocks of sheep , we think he is ag...

WATER ROTTING HEMP . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 September 1845

WATER ROTTING HEMP . The subjoined article we find in the Nashville Agriculturist , from the pen of Gen . G . J . Pillow . I have water-rotted a crop of forty acres of last years growth , and have not made a single failure , nor have I had any difficulty in determining the point at which the rotting process should cease ; nor have my hands been at all exposed , neither is there the least danger to be apprehended of sickness from this kind of labor . But I believe my success is mainly attributable to the construction of my vat , and my preparation for the business . I will first state the character of these : M y vat is built near a small creek , which I straightened by a ditch , and thereby gave it a deep channel . The vat is 90 feet long , 20 feet wide , and 4 feel deep . Its walls are built of hard brick , laid in hydraulic cement mortar , and they rest upon a solid stone , which extends clear over the bottom of the vat . The walls of the vat are thus made water tight , and proof ...

EDITORIAL RAMBLES . This season wo have made three excursions into the country , having traveled over 1800 miles , and visited to a greater fir less extent fifty eight counties in Illinois and three in Wisconsan . We hope to continue these journeys , till everv county sh &amp;lt; ill have been visited m Illinois , Wisconsan , and Iowa , and a large part of Indiana and Missouri .

Froiv experience we know ii will not answer to depend wholly upon accidental agencies to increase our circulation . Tltore are many , it is true , of our best agents and friends whose faces we never saw ; but the increase of subscribers for the past three months has been almost wholly from the routes we have just visited ; and the number , moreover , is several times greater than inthe same months of any previous year .

PRACTICAL PAPERS . ¦ • ; - ¦ f For the Prairie Farmer . BY r ,. KIJIBALt .. MESSRS . EDITORS : I have often , whilst reading yours njjif other agricultural papers been struck with the fact that x fhere universall y is a great , want of-matter from the peri of practical farmers—the kind of information that will do the poor man good . Nine tenths of the writers on agriculture are men who farm with money , to make money ; and the most of their experience is entirely Useless to the great majority of the immigrants to the prairie World , wlio bring all -their earthly treasure in a wagon , and who depend ori their labor for their bread . The information all important to . them , is how they can produce a few acres of corn , wheat , \ tnd potatoes willi the least possible labor ; the best mode tVcheaply shelter themselves from the Weather ; and to fence and break a few acres of ground / Thousands are yearly coming into the West from all parts of the world ( whose only capital is a large fa...

Nothing is more common than to work yearns during tho day , and at night e ram them into a stable with barely room to stand , without any provision for lying down . Can it , be wondered at that teams thus treated-should fall off in flesh and fail prematurely ? . ; , When two are standing together ,- the one is always doing the other some mischief , either accidentally or intentionally . . The strongest robs the weakest both of his food and his rest ; while one is l ying the other will trample or lie down on his companion ; and mares , while standing double , seldom or never urinate till one is removed . Two that-have , toiled together for many a day , have fed frorri . the same manger , and crouched under the lash of the Same driver , are good friends , forbearing , and sympathizing .

EDITORS : Since writing the article in your July number , I have continued my observations on the p lant lice and their enemies , by which I have detected some errors in that article which I wish to correct . Tdiese corrections and observations , and some other things , have led me to trouble you again so soon . The bugs I spoke of are , I believe , called lady-bugs , and are of three distinct species—the one described in my last article being the largest . The next largest is more oblong , flatter , and more speckled than the largest . The other species , and smallest , is nearl y round and without the specks . These insects generally lay their eggs on small grass fibres that stick up out of the ground , two or three inches from t | je surface .
