Dtcemlcr . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Dtcemlcr . Then cam . the autnoiu , all tn yellow clad , As though be joyed in plenteous store , Laden with fruits that made him laugh , foil glad That he had banished hunger , which to-lbre Had br the belly on him pinched eore ; Upan his heed a wreath that was enr lad With ears of corn of eTery sort , he bore , And in his band a sickle be did hold , To reap the rlpsned fruit the which the earth hadyold . Sptncer i fixity Queen . It is for autumn , that the winter frost has crumbled down the soil , and disintegrated the rocks ; it is for autumn that the vernal showers moistened the glebe and called the sleeping plants from their hybernation . It was to fill the December barns with grain and forage , and the cellars with vegetables and fruits , that the summer sun glowed with its ardent heat—it was for this that the sun- browned brow of the farmer was moistened by the sweat of labor , that when winter called for the summer stores , that December could give response , and show in her ...

FALL FLOATING . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

FALL FLOATING . Fall plowing in this and the soath part of the State , has been too much neglected , and it is hig h time that our farmers give this subject their attention . For corn we believe fall plowing is seldom resorted to . Let us take the farm of John Do-well , and see how he manages to produce such large crops , and obtain such large dividends from that little patch of a farm of his . Eighty acres , just the one eighth of a section . In the first place the road takes off one acre , the building grounds and yard two acres , tbe garden three acres , the orchard four acres . Twenty acres are fenced off for meadow , twenty acres for pasture , twenty for corn and potatoes , and ten for wheat . We will see what he is now doing with the Beveral fields . The five acres of potato ground has been trench plowed a foot deep , and will be sowed to spring wheat , five acres of the adjoining corn field has been husked on the hill , and the stalks are being turned to the bottom of the tre...

Tbe Double Michigan Plow as a Prairie Breaker . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Tbe Double Michigan Plow as a Prairie Breaker . The last of February and first of- March we broke up seven acres of prairie with one of these plows . The small plow was run one inch deep , turning the soil over like a scroll , upon which the lower plow turned two inches of the turf and soil ; this after a few days would Ml to pieces , as the roots of course were - dead . We have never seen June breaking in so fine order as this spring breaking . We broke up about the middle of June three acres with a common breaking plow , and it will require a dollars worth of extra team work to put this in as good order as the spring breaking . Should we have heavy rain so as to make the turf soft and yielding , we shall break np more in this way this month , and at any time during the winter when the frost is out enough to break , we shall put our idle teams to work . We have done with summer breaking , and hereafter the Double Michigan Plow is our breaker until something better shall turn up . T...

Orchard am ! Garden . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Orchard am ! Garden . WORK IN THE ORCHARD . Trees planted in autumn in well prepared soil will make a third more growth than if planted in spring . The reason of this , is , that the ends of the roots cut with the spade or broken , heal over and prevent loss of sap , which occurs in spring , the ground becomes settled around them , and from tho first swelling of the bud they go forward without interruption . All trees planted in the fall should be banked up at the tinie , with earth to hold theim to their place , so as not to be thrown out with the frost or swayed over with the wind while tbe ground is saturated with a heavy rain . In the Becond place the heads should be thinned out ( not cut back , ) and not allow the tree to grow too bushy on the start . We have decided aversion to spring pruning , for several reasons , which can be summond up as follows : A loss of sap , which runs down and discolors the bark , the cut branch decays and does not heal over dry and and sound . If w...

The Tear 1819 . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

The Tear 1819 . The year about to close has been one of deep interest to all . The HARD TIMES had full possession at its advent and has held on with a pretty strong grip . The expectation that the year s crops would improve the condition of things , has to some extent been realized . Early in the spring tho winter wheat crop gave poor promise , hut on the whole it is as good as the spring stand could well warrant . Farmers who sow chess or sow on land already filled with this pernicious weedhave no reason tocomplain . When the stand of wheat is good and tho growth thrifty , ehess makes no impression , but when the stand is thin from any cause , the chess plants swell out to wonderful proportion . — For planting corn tho season was rather wet , and what with poor seed , the rats and other vermin to prey upon the young plants , it was a difficult matter to obtain a good stand , but our farmers persevered nobly , and the result is a good average crop throughout the State . Some of the ...

Fawkes' Steam Plow . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Fawkes Steam Plow . At this writing , Nov . 25 th , this plow is on our farm undergoing important alterations in the arrangement of the gang of plows . On Tuesday last the trial was commenced , but in consequence of the breaking of a wheel , it was partially suspended , half of the gang ( 4-plows ) was taken off and two and a half acres of prairie sod turned over . The engine appears to have sufficient power to drive the whole gang , and steam can fce kept up for almost any distance with good fuel . The real difficulty is now how to arrange the plows to good advantage , numerous attempts have been made , to run plows iu gangs , but thus far without much success . As generally arranged the friction is very great , as Fawkes is now turning his inventive energies to tho solution of this important problem we may reasonably hope that the difficulties will he oversome . The trial will be resumed from day today—weather permitting—until a thorough trial will bo had . The plow will not be at...

Planting Bulbs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Planting Bulbs . The present Is the proper season for planting out bulbs of hyacinths , tulips , narcissus , crocus and nearly all the hardy varieties of bulbous flower roots . The best soil for all such is a sandy loam , well drained and richly manured with well rotted cow dung ; each bulb should be surrounded with about one inch of sand ; this keeps the bulb from rotting . If the soil is not good z it is better to dig it out to the depth of a foot or more , and fill in with good soil . Leaf mold , if dry , is good ; but it must be mixed with a fair proportion of sandy loam . In selecting bulbs , the clean bright skinned ones should be preferred . When spotted or molded , they are in a bad condition , and seldom do well . Hyacinths and tulip bulbs should be planted about eight inches apart , * and four inches deep . A covering of leaves or manure should be spread over the bed for protection during winter , removing it in early spring . The bed should be kept clear of weeds , but gr...

About Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

About Corn . Mr . Editor : —What becomes of the corn crop ? According to the last census the corn crop of the United States , in the aggregate amounted to about 600 ,- 000 , 000 bushels annually . How and in what manner is such a vast amount of grain consumed profitably for the producer ? Of the crop of 1850 , about 4 , 500 , 000 bushels were exported , and more than 11 , 000 , 000 bushels were consumed in the manufacture of spirituous liquors . The balance were used at home , as food for man and beast . Since that time , the amount consumed in the manufacture of alcohol and hi ghwines must have largely increased to keep pace with the growing demand for alcohol in the manufacture of burning fluid , & c . It is certainly a funny doctrine , promulgated by some individuals at the present day , that we should go on increasing our grain products , until we can afford , rather than get nothing for it , to compete with European labor and European crops and prices at their own d...

From the American Stock Jonrusl . Raising Cattle on tie Prairies . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

From the American Stock Jonrusl . Raising Cattle on tie Prairies . The adaptation of the prairies to the production of stock cannot be questioned . And where the attention of the agriculturalists is devoted exclusively to this branch of husbandry , the range for summer pasturage and the gathering of winter supplies is unlimited . As we propose offering a few observations on this subject for the readers of the Stock Journal , it will be necessary first to examine the present condition of the stockgrowing interest . In connection with other farm management , the keeping of cattle is followed quite exclusively , but in few cases with any system calculated to improre the character of the stock . The early settlers were poor , coming from different States , each with a cow , or two , of such excellence as they chanced to possess ; and this laid the foundation of the breed which now predominates . These cows were bred to such males as chanced to be running at large on the prairie , conseq...

Chester County Breed of Hogs . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Chester County Breed of Hogs . Isaac Darlington , an experienced farmer of Chester county , Pa ., sends to the Village Record , the following account of this famous breed of hogs : As you have requested my views on the origin of the Chester county breed of hogs , I send you these opinions as the best that I am able to give . As far back as I can recollect , between thirty and forty years , the pigs were what we would now call indifferent—hardly any two farmers had pigs that looked alike . Some run very much to short ears and legs ; others were diminutive in size ; while others again filled up the intermediate places . While this state of things existed the Berkshires were introduced ; a square built round body , but lacking depth over the shoulder , and withala black pig , Chester county had set her eye on a white pig—and a white pig she must and would have . Accordingly , some or the older farmers began to pajv more attention to the old stock ; they hunted the best they could find ...

SEED SAVING . - [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

SEED SAVING . - The seeds of cucumber , melon , etc . are better at any rate , when four or five years old than when fresh ; and we have well authenticated instances of seeds retaining their vitality much longer than this . There is no fixed period during which seeds will keep . There is no reason to suppose that they would loose their vitality in any assignable number of years if the proper conditions were observed . De Candolle says that M . Gerardin raised kidney beans , obtained from Tournefort s herbarium , which were at least a hundred years old ; but beans left to the chances of the atmosphere are not good the second year , and hardly worth planting in the third . Professor Lindley raised raspberry plants from seed not less than sixteen or seventeen hundred years old . Multitudes of other instances might be given . In reply to the first question , it may , then , be said , that the length of time through which seeds will keep depends upon the method of preserving them . We do...

Eow to Detect Imperfect Vision or Blindness in Horses . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Eow to Detect Imperfect Vision or Blindness in Horses . The novice in horse-flesh may have good grounds for suspicion as to the existence of imperfect vision or blindness when , the horse moves his ears in a constant and rapid motion , directing them in quick succession to every quarter from whence the least sound proceeds . His action is lofty and faltering , and he lifts his feet and replaces them on the ground as if stepping over some obstacle , when there is actually nothing to impede his progression . But . notwithstanding that these symptoms would be sufficient to create suspicion , there are other causes ( besides imperfect vision ) by which the same , ov similar symptoms , would appear in horses . For instance , if a horse with the most perfect pair of eyes were led from a dark stable into the blazing sunshine-, the sudden contraction of tho pupil of his eye would render it impossible , for a few moments , for him to see but very indistinctly ; hence would arise the same sym...

Blilk which docs not Yield Butter , and the Means to Rcinrdy It .. [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1859

Blilk which docs not Yield Butter , and the Means to Rcinrdy It .. The author calls the attention of those who are chiefly interested in such cases , in which theoc is no disease of the mammary gland nor loss of milk , but a want of oleaginous matters in the fluid . In the causes of this deficiency of butter-making quality , he concludes that there are tico principal ones , viz : idiosyncrasy and alimentation ; but there is another which cannot be so easily defined , and which occurs in animals that are well kept , and whose milk has been previously rich in butter . It is these that the remedy is principally directed . The remedy consists in giving the animal two ounces of the sulp huret of antimony , with thiee ounces ot coriander seeds , powdered and well mixed . This is to be given as a soft bolus , and followed by a draught comuosed of half a pint of vinegar , a pint of water , and a handful of common salt , for three successive mornings , no an empty stomach . This remedy , acc...
