February , Behold , the joyous winter days Frosty , succeed ; and thro the blue serene For sight too fine , the etherlal mitre flies ; Killing Infectious damps ) and the spent air Storing afresh with elemental life .- • THOHPsmr . Many farmers complain of the severity of winter and wish . lor its more mild and genial reign , but there is a mean to be observed in til things ,- and though we may complain of the severity ! of winter , the drenching rain and the long summer drouth . * yet all these are a part of the -universal system of Him who holds ttie . wqrlds in his balr lance . The long severe drouth of 1857 de ; pressed the hopes of the farmer , which being followed in 58 by long continued raios , almost crushed out his energies ; the spring of 59 was dry and wet alternately , and the plow turned up the sodden land in clods the most unpromising thajt we had seen for years . The elements of fertility appeared locked up , iu . the unkindl y soil , and it was with -difficulty that a...

ire yon Insured ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

ire yon Insured ? The season for fires is upon us . Scarcely a paper that comes to hand that does not contain a record of some disastrous conflagration , and it becomes the prudent to seek without delay the insurance of their dwellings and other valuable property , in some responsible company . It will be seen by our advertising columns that the Illinois Mutual Insurance Company are taking risks upon exceedingly favorable terms . This company has earned an enviable fame for promptness and liberality in the adjustment of losses . We have good reeson to know that the company is exceedingly cautious in taking risks , and that its affairs are directed and controlled by gentlemen who have learned , that the interests of stockholders are the most surely advanced by faithfully protecting the rights of the assured . The company is the oldest in the State , and is deserving of patronage in perfcrence to the doubtful institutions from the eastern States . When our farmers can be accommodated ...

ADDRESS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

ADDRESS DE LITE RED BEFORE THE SOUTHERN ILLINOIS POMOLOGICAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY , BV HOX . M . L . DUSLAP , At i / ta Second Annual Fair , held at Tamaroa , lUtnots , December 20 M , 1559 . LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : —And this is Egypt ! Not the Egypt where flows the classic Nile , or where stands in lonely grandeur the vast pyramids , whose dates have faded out beneath the hand of time , and whose arts and civilization have degenerated into barbarism ; but it is the Egypt of the new world—of the great northwest—the wheat field and fruit garden of the valley of the upper Mississippi , whose gonial slopes and wood-crowned hills are the pride of southern Illinois . With a climate soft and lovely as Italia , no wonder that the peach blushes like the cheek of beauty ; that her great orb-like apples challenge the admiration of all ; that the pear is full of melting richness , most pleasing to the palate ; that the small fruits glow with health and beauty , while the vine brings forth ...

Fawies' Steam Plow as > t is and what it may be . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

Fawies Steam Plow as > t is and what it may be . from the Chicago Press and Tribune . That Fawkes has demonstrated that plowing can be done by steam no one will deny , but that he has demonstrated that steam can profitably compete with animal power is entirely another thing . In September , 1858 , he plowed the first furrow by steam oh the western prairies . His plow was pronounced a success b y others as well as ourself , at the time , for it had turned six perfect furrows side by side , in the most workman-like manner , and of the length required by the committee . The shouts of the crowd o £ farmers present was a sufficient attestation that the much desired end had been attained , and Fawkes was the hero of the hour . But no one claimed that all had been fully demonstrated ; its economy must still be proved ; it must show in dollars and cents whether it had the vantage ground of the ox , the mule and the horse . To ascertain this point a day of trial was set at Decatur...

State nortituHuial Soeitty—First Bay . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

State nortituHuial Soeitty—First Bay . This Society met at Bloomington on the 16 th January , I 860 .- The attendance was much the largest of the annual meetings thus far , this being the third one since the organization . of the Society . It has been charged that this Society has been under the control of aurserymon , who were using it to advertise their wares . But such has not been the case . It is well known that nurserymen and fruit grows have differed widely on the subject of root grafting vs . budding , on high and low head s , on deep and shallow planting , as well as various nursery practices , more or less effecting the value of the tree for orchard culture . It was natural that these mooted points should be discussed and finally settled , for it is the nursreyman who lays the foundation of the orchard , ana fruit growers have a right , and it is their duty to look into the nursery and critecise the the various processes . These points have been mainly disposed off as prel...

THE HOUSEHOLD . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

THE HOUSEHOLD . THE SEEDING MACHINE . * . _____ Tho progress of cultivation has been marked by the introduction of new machinery and of a more scientific course of developing- the riches of the earth . The measured beat of the hand flail is hushed in the music of the thresher ; the cast iron plow , has become a matter of history , as the morning sun flashes from the polished surface of the steel clipper ; the hand sickle and the huge cradle , have given place to the Autormac reaper , that now sweeps down the harvests of thc-prairia slopes . Tho revolving rake rolls up the lengthened windrow , which the iron mower had spread out to cure in the morning sun ; and in yonder field stands the iron horse , ready to be harnessed to the plow , when winter shall have receded back to the icy north . But the genius of man has not been circumscribed to the development of the . productions of Northern earth ; the snowy fleeces of the . Saxon flocks , are now twined by iron fingers , and the hum o...

WHEELER'S IMPROVED PATENTS . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

WHEELERS IMPROVED PATENTS . Within the past few years great improvements have been made in the threshing of grain . It haa been the ambition of our farmers to obtain the largest machines -of this kind , or those that would thresh the most in a day , without regard to economy , either in the cost of threshing or saving of the grain . In the autumn of 184 S , -we made a visit east , and in our sojourn spent a day at Rochester , in attendance at the county fair , then in session . One of Wheeler s horse-powers , thresher and seperator was there on exhibition . It was not put up as such things are now-a-days , to look at and its value to be guessed , but was set to work , putting through several loads of oats , well charged with Canada thistles . We thought if it could do as well on-our western grains and weeds , as with the oats and thistles it would be valuable , and the next season five of us farmers ordered one of these machines to do our throshing , the cost of which was considerab...

Uiulerufainlng . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

Uiulerufainlng . The cost of tile draining is made up of three items—the digging , the price of tiles at the kiln , and the expenseof hauling them . It will readily be seen that each of these may vary considerably , and the total cost of the improvement be influenced accordingly . If tilet are made on the farm , or in the immediate neighborhood , the cost of hauling is reduced to its lowest figure . Where they must be drawn several miles , the trouble and expense are great ; five hundred of the smallest size being all that can readil y and sa fely be put in a common two-horse wagon . Taking this item into account , the desirableness of concert of action among fanners is apparent , if several can agree to enter upon such improvements at the same time , they may manufacture in company , or what is better , give their contracts to the nearest and best brick maker , and get their tiles made at the most convenient point . Every farmer should consider it his interest to sustain any tile m...

STEAM PLOWS . Fairies , Waters , Basset .. [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860

STEAM PLOWS . Fairies , Waters , Basset .. Such is the heading of an article in the Kewana Advertiser and we give below ita main points . We hope friend Bassett will be patient and not make a fortune too soon . Steam plows are a success ; that is , they will plow ; but another point is yet to be settled , and that is , will they pay ? We hope they will , but we must wait patiently for this solution . We have paid considerable attention to this subject of steam plowing ,, but we must confess that the paying point of the enterprise still looms in the far off distance . ED . * * But just at this time the hopes of the public seem almost to have been crushed . out iu consequence of the failure of those which have been produced , to meet the expectations of their inventors and the public * * The causes of their failure are natural causes , easily accounted for and will enable others to profit by their experience . * * Samuel K . Bassett , of Galesburg , has partially constructed a steam p...
