Sorghum in Iowa . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Sorghum in Iowa . The Keokuck Gate City has tho following encouraging news with regard to the growing of Sorghum in Iowa : Estimating the value of the crop by the known amount in a few counties , we think it entieely safe to say , that over one million dollars will be saved to the State of Iowa this year in consequence of the introduction of the Chinese cane among us . A million of dollars saved in this way is equal to two millions earned . The production is yet but just emerged from an experiment . If they save a million this year , next year they will save two millions . The Dubuque Times remarking on the same subject , says : that a tour through nine counties in that section showed an average of one sugar mill to about four farmers . The crop of molasses in Jefferson county is estimated this year at 60 , 000 gallons . Tama county last year produced 11 , 000 gallons ; this year the crop is estimated at 20 , 000 gallons . Jasper county raised 18 , 700 last year , and the amount est...

Autumn Work in the Orchard . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Autumn Work in the Orchard . from the Prattle Fetmer . Ens . PRAIIUE FARMER : —Since the calamity to fruit trees in the . winter of 55-6 , very many trees have died each year from the effects of that winter , and many more will die this and the coming season , which will have to be replaced by young trees . I would advise those who have shared in this calamity ( for such 1 view it , ) with your humble servant , to dig out those dead trees , and those nearly so , ( that are only living at a poor dying rate ) this fall , and fore part of winter , if the ground keeps open , and leave the borders open to the effects of the frost and air during the winter . It will do much to ameliorate the soil for the reception of the new tree Examine the newly planted tree ; see that there are no grass or weeds around the roots for mice to borough in . Mice work under cover , and gnaw the bark from the trunk of the tree at the ground , which is charged to the rabbit s account many times . It is an exc...

About Wintering Stock , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

About Wintering Stock , Under this head a correspondent of the New Yorker , gives some seasonable advice which we would commend to our western farmers : As much has been said about the scarcity offodder , I wish to g ive the public , through your paper , a sure way to help it hold out . It has been my experience that stock kept warm and dry , will thrive with one-fourth less feed than when exposed to tha fury of a winter s storm . Now , brother farmers , if you are short of fodder , instead of buying hay at exhorbitant prices , to be fed out of doors and perhaps trampled in the mud , just expend a trifling sum for lumber , and batten up all the crevices about your stables , and make some good mangers , and underpin your barn—making it , as sailors say , all taut , —then keep your cattle in there most of the time while the snow is on the ground . Having done this , go and expend two , three , or five dollars more for blankets for your horses , and employ an idle hour fastening on sui...

Concord and Delaware Stapei . At the Pomological Meeting recently held at Zanesville , Ohio , the following was said abont the two varieties of the grape . The Concord and Delaware are unquestionably tlie grapes for this latitude : CONCOBD . —Specimens ©! this grapo were presented by Mr . Carpenter ; and in answer to calls for information respecting it , Messrs . Warder , Carpenter , Bateham and others corroborated what has before been published , that , it is profitable as an early , hardy variety , especially valuable as a market grape , and for farmers and others , who are willinjg to bestow care and labor in cultivation DELAWABE . —Specimens of this grape were exhibited at the Fair b y H . C . Noblo and M . B . Bateham , of Columbus , and Geo . W . Campbell , of Delaware . Mr . Campbell also distributed some at the meeting , which disappeared rapidly , and elicited unmistakable signs of commendation , as usual . At the National Fair specimens of both of these grapes were exhibit...

Crops—Advantages of Fall Plowing . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Crops—Advantages of Fall Plowing . Knowing that information about crops are always acceptable , I send you a few items . The wheat crop through Southern Wisconin is not as good as expected before it was threshed—onl y averaging , on the prairie , from sixteen to ei ghteen , and in the openings , from nine to eleven bushels per acre . The quality is very good . Two facts , which were generally noticed , are worthy the earnest consideration of all farmers . First , the crops on fall plowing were better than on that plowed in the spring ; and on heavy lands , I think this will be found invariably the case . This is owing to the disintegrating powers of the frost on the soil , and rendering soluble tho mineral elements , that they may be more readily taken up by plants . Again , the soil is better prepared to absorb the ammonia which is collected by the rain and snow as it falls through the air—there being a good deal of truth in the old saying , that snow is the poor man s manure . Sec...

Sngar Cane Convention , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Sngar Cane Convention , The Convention of Sugar Cane growers o £ this county and vicinity , met according to notice , at J . L . Gill & Son s Warehouse , and though the day was exceedingly snowy , there was a very fine show of syrups of home manufacture , besides some excellent samples from the Evaporators of Cook and Harris , and a fine sample of sugar from Cook s Evporator . Premiums were awarded by the committee , and the meeting resolved to hold another exhibition in this city on Tuesday , the 6 th of December . The great feature of progress which transpired at this meeting , was the exhibition of cane juico completely defecated , ready for boiling down in any simple pan or kettle . Tho usual practice is to perfect the separation of the gum and other foul elements in the juice , by constant skimming during the application of heat , but by this new process the foul elements are all precipitated before the juice goes to the boiler , and a sample of syrup made by the ex...

Fruit Trrei for Ornamental Purposes , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Fruit Trrei for Ornamental Purposes , Under this head , Mr . Sanders , a noted horticulturist , of : Germantown , Pa ., writes an instructive article to the Horticulturist . He would combine the useful with the ornamental , and plant fruit trees together in groups . A similar recommendation was made by the Chairman of the Fruit Growers Meeting , held at our last State Fair : In the course of my practice I have frequently taken occasion to advise the propriety of planting fruit orchards so as to secure more variety of outline than they usually present , and to a certain extent carry into the orchard some of the most characteristics features of ornamental planting . There are , many situations where a fine effect can be produced by planting the orchard so that it will appear as a further extension of the lawn , somewhat in the manner tbat I have here attempted to describe . It may be urged that very little fruit would be produced by this method of planting , the trees being placed so ...

The Egyptians Moving . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

The Egyptians Moving . The Horae Apple spoken of , is a valuable fruit for drying . The tree is a rapid upright grower and an abundant bearer , and is becoming deservedly popular in the south , part of the State . It ripens the lastof July and first of August , just at that season favorable for dryin g . It is probably the best apple we have for summer drying . The Early Harvest is becominga popular summer market apple and is also well adapted to the south , and central part of the State . It is not an annual bearer , though producing good crops alternate years , with but few or no specimens at other times . Our South Pass ( Cobden , ) friends have an excellent soil and climate for the full development of fruits ; at the same time they have an army of destructive insects to contend with . We hope to hear from them often , and have no doubt they will find decided profit in these meetings : ED .

Difference between Eastern and Western Farm * - ing . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1860

Difference between Eastern and Western Farm * - ing . There seems to be a vast difference between Eastern and Western farming ; and several causes may be assigned for this difference . In the first place , the Eastern States are densely populated , and labor is plently , and consequently , the balance must be expended in producing the raw material , or in commerce or manufactures . The latter branches can exhaust but a certain quantity of that labor , consequently , the balance must he expended in the former channel of industry , viz ., agriculture . The natural sterility of the soil , which exists in many parts of the East , can be overcome by an extra amount of labor ; and as the individuals whs compose the agricultural population are limited in the quantity of land which they occupy , they are necessarily compelled to resort to every means within their reach , to draw from the bosom of the earth , in their respective localities , all that she is capable * of producing . Not so in...
