January . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
January . Oh Wlnttrl ra \ n tit the inverted year . Thy scattered hair with slset- &lt; Hke ashes fllld . Thy breath congeald upon thy lips , thy cheeks , Fringed with a beard made white with other snowe , Thau those of age ; thy forehead wrapt f n clouds , A leaflets branch thy sceptre , and thy throne , A sliding car indebted to no wheels , But urged by storms along a allpp ry way ;; I love thee , all unlovely as than , seam st , And dreaded a * thou art . „ x Oowper s Task , January nob onl y lias its uses but its beauties , aud to the thrifty farmer is an interesting period of the year . It is the beginning of a new era , a development of new plans—a time for study and domestic ease . December closed the year , and concluded with the holydays , a fitting finale to its varied labors . If January comes in with its icy breath , it bath its fireside enjoyments ; no active duties have yet been inaugurated ; no bending to the arduous labors of the new born year . With the thri...
Hlore about the Hog , and its History . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Hlore about the Hog , and its History . 3 b the Editor of the JUintnt Farmtr : The article by Mr . C . N . Bemont , in the November number of the FABMER . in praise principally oE the Suffolk hog , is in the main just , when that hog is kept and fed by a particular class of persons , where they are large or small farmers , living in thickly settled and highly cultivated parts of the country , who add to their occupations , that of market gardens or fruit raisers , and have quantities of refuse fruits and vegetables ; where there is an abundance of offal and slop as with butchers and distillers ; where swill can be collected with little expense ; for the keepers of hotels and large boarding houses ; in a dairy neighborhood or country ; in those situations , the breed of swine that puts on the greatest amount of fat and flesh and makes the most weight in the least time , is the most profitable . But then , is not the Berkshire of threefourths or seven-eighths blood , quite as desirabl...
Farmers what do ion Live for ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Farmers what do ion Live for ? We cut the following remarks from the Ht . W . Farmer ., which will be found as appropriate to this latitude as to Northen Iowa : ED . It is for the pupose of acquiring title to all the land which joins you without regard to the means , or the sacrifice which you are obliged to make in doing so ? It is to break up your boundless prairies and thereby increase the number of acres of your crops , from year to year , regardless of the proportion between the expense and the profits of the operation ? Is it to increase the number of your cattle , horses , sheep and hogs , regardless of the expense of keeping—the quality of the animals , or the profits arising from the sales thereof ? Is it to amass wealth for future generatrons , regardless of you present comfort and enjoyment ? Is it to pinch your life out for the sake of becoming rich—for the purpose of furnishing your children with a bone of contention , or a profligate son with the means of defraying his...
The hoenst—Varieties « nd Culturr . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
The hoenst—Varieties « nd Culturr . MESSBS . EDITORS : —In the August number of your paper I observe that a correspondent desires information on a topic of much interest to settlers in the prairie regions , viz : the different varieties of locust trees , and the best mode of preparing locust seed to secure its germination . Having given some attention to both these points , for a number of years past , I will briefly give the result of my observations . I am convinced that it is a mistake , to suppose there are different varieties of the locust indigenous to this country , as the yellow , black , red , &amp; c . These names have been applied in different parts of our country , in consequence of a slight difference that has been observed in the color of the heart wood on cutting locust timber ; but this difference of shade can he accounted for by the effects of climate , soil and location , the age and health of the trees , i &amp; c . The best botanists of our countr...
Care of Houscplanls . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Care of Houscplanls . Keep the plants free from dust by syringing tho leaves and stems . Avoid too much watering , especially of plants not flowering . The water should pass through the soil , else it is not sufficiently porous or lacks drainage . Water should be of the same temperature as the room and given in tho morning , and should not be allowed to stand in the saucers . Endeavor to keep the room of regular temperature—about 65 ° which is a healthy temperature for humans as well as vegetables . This refers to the day ; at night the temperature may and should fall 15 ° or 20 ° . To render young plants stocky and strong , pinch out the tops of shoots . Give the flowering plants the most light and the tender ones the warmest place . If insects appear , fumigate with tobacco .
Poisonous Plants of Ohio . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Poisonous Plants of Ohio . While Snake Root—Eupatoriviiiagerojoidu —WiUd . FAMILY CoKposira . It is with considerable doubt that we place the White Snake Boot in the list of poisonous plants . The only reason for so doing , being tho experiment of several parties , principally in this State , who having fed the plant to cattle and horses , the disease called milk sickness or trembles appeared to be produced thereby . For an account of these experiments , sec Ohio Agricultural Ecport for 1858 , page 670 ; and OHIO FARMER , Vol . 5 , page 183 . Mr . Yermilya , in these cases , satisfied himself and others that this White Snake Boot really produced this much dreaded dis ease . The genus Eupatorium is almost confined to America ; and milk sickness is entirely or almost unknown , except in the northern portion of the Mississippi Valley and the basins of the great lakes , and this is the region in which the ageratoides is found . The plant naturally grows in rich , moist woods ; but will ...

THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
THE APIARY . It appears to us that no part of the North West is better adapted to the profitable culture of the bee than our own , and yet little effort has been made in that direction . White clover is the best food , and this grows bountifully when sown . Those who wish to keep bees should obtain a few pounds of this seed , and sow about their premises ; its cost is about seventy-five cents a pound , to be had at the seed stores . We would ask our bee keeping friends for practical details of their experience .

Important Discovery . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Important Discovery . Quito recently , while walking in the garden with the Hon . J [ . W . Fairfield , Hudson , N . Y ., he called my attention to the small stakes , which 1 supported the raspberry canes . The end in the ground , as well-as the part above , was as sound and bright as if lately made , hut . he . informed me that tbey had been in constant use for twelve yearsi Said , I , Of course they are oyanized ? Yes , he replied , and the process is so simple and cheap that it deserves to be universally known , and it is simply this : One pound of blue vitriol to twenty quarts of water . Dissolve the vitriol with boiling water , and then add the remainder . The end of the stick Is then dropped into the solution , and left to stand four or five days , for shingles , three days will answer , and for post six inches , square , ten days . Care is to be taken that the saturation takes place in a metal vessel , or keyed box , for the reason that any barrel will be shrunk by the operat...
Size Will . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
Size Will . At all our State and county fairs the large ox , horse , apple , squash , potatoe , pig or pullet , take the premiums . It matters not what the offer may be , whether for the best or the biggest , it is the latter that will win . Little or no regard is made to quality , it is the monster that fills the eyes of the committee—corn twenty feet high ; squashes of a hundred and fifty pounds ; huge yellow fleshed potatoes , unfit for domestic use ; an overgrown , slab-sided , coarse haired calfj a stall fed milch cow , all fat but no milk ; a working OK fit for tht shambles ; a roadster puffed up with dope ? a breeding sow too fat to stand up , or a huge frame where beef is wanting . This is all wrong , and it is time that our agricultural societies looked to it , that committees give a just award ; to this end they should be specially instructed , that quality was the first requisite , and size next . As the winter months is the time to make the premium lists , we throw out t...
What variety of Apples iliall we plant ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860
What variety of Apples iliall we plant ? A farmer asks the Ohio Farmer what variety of apples to plant , to which he gives response as follows : The best varieties , in our opinion , are those that bear best , and for which there is a demand in the market ; and these are the Belmont , Baldwin , Richfield , Nonsuch , Ithode Island Greening , Peck s Pleasant , Red Astrachan and Queen Ann or Lowell apples . To these might be added the Early Harvest ; but the Bed Astrachan is a much finer looking fruit , sells betterj and is almost as early . Sweet apples have no sale . But the best early one is the Sweet Bough ) and it is a good annual bearer . Amateurs will add to this list , but farmers raise fruit to sell . In our soil and climate the Baldwin is considered almost worthless . The Richfield Nonsuch we are not acquainted with , the others we can fully indorse as valuable in the south part of the State , but for the central and north we would leave out Peck s Pleasand Rhode Island Green...
