NEW YORK CATTLE MARKET-JAR . 25 . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1860
NEW YORK CATTLE MARKET-JAR . 25 . Beef cattle have come In rather sparingly , the receipts of fresh animals ( 3 , 14 ft ) being less tlian during any single week since May 25 , when there were only 2 , 094 . There were a few stale cattle , left over from last Wednesday , which sjvelled the supply for this week , and a few such animals have been hanging alongfrom week to week , for some time past . There seemed to be a determination to-day- to clean up tbe yards , and make a clear start . To do this some of tbe closing sales were at figures no better than the average last Wednesday , though there was an advance of about % c on most of tbe preliminary sales yesterday , and those of to-day up to noon . To answer the inquiries of some new subscribers , we explain that bullocks are usually sold at a gross price—so much per head—but the prices are based , oa a certain price $ To from the estimated weight of the dressed carcases , on four quarters . The fifth quarter , ** or head , rough t...

Milk Sickness . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860
Milk Sickness . Editor Illinois Farmer : DEAR SIR : —In the January number of your interesting paper , which greatly aids me iu keeping myself posted in regard to my prairie friends , I find on page six an article on the poisonous plants of Ohio , in which the Eupatorium ageratoides is aocueed of being the cause of milk-sickness , or at least of being injurious to cattle . The article is credited to the Ohio Farmer , hut I see it in your paper , and you appear to think the theory of its causing the disease is plausible . Many years ago I had a quantity of this plant sent me , with a similar accusation . My investigations at that time satisfied me of its harmless pharacters . My proof amounts to this , it grows abundantly everywhere in half-cleared woodland , cattle eat it frequently where no such disease is known . The account of Mr . Yeraiilya , in the Ohio Agricultural Report , is rery circumstantial , and he arrays testimony of many individuals in confirmation of his assertion , ...
Chincic and African Sugar Cans . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860
Chincic and African Sugar Cans . Tor tba UUDOIB Fara . tr . Jt will , we think , no longer be denied that the Northern Sugar Cane is entitled to a rank among the staple products of our latitude . Its cultivation has ceased to be regarded as an experimental or a fancy enterprise . Year by year it has grown in the confidence of the agriculturalist , until it Jxaa achieved by its intrinsic merits a name and a place in onr list of staples . The amount of cane grown last season was considerably greater than that of any former year , while it is probable from present indications that tbe amount which will be planted the coming season will be greater than that of all previous years . This assumed ID crease is not attributable to any extraordinary success attending the operations of the last year , bnt rather to the fact that the results were for the most part remnneratire , notwithstanding the season was a most unpropitious one . The spring , as will be remembered , was wet and backward , ...
Taint of Sorgho as food for Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860
Taint of Sorgho as food for Stock . Editor Illinois Farmer : DEAB SIR : —About the fourth of June I trench plowed about one-third of an acre , by using two plows , or rather two plowinga in the same furrow , turning up the solid earth ten inches deep . - After harrowing I sowed at the rate of four bushels of Sorgho seed to the acre , harrowed fine and finished by rolling . It came up well andmade afine growth , until killed by frost in October ; let it stand some four days , when the leaves became cured , and then cut it with a common grass sythe , and shocked up without further curing , putting some two hundred pounds in each ahock—making forty shocks , or about four tons to tbe third of an acre . It has now been fed out , making Ample feed for eighteen head of cattle for twenty days , equal to feeding one head a year / It will require half an acre of corn to winter a cow , while half an acre of this cane will winter • two cows equally as well , while the labor in , its production ...

BUSHVTLM , 111 ., Jan . 25 , 1860 . if . L . Dtatfap ; Editor of Illinois Farmer : BBAB SIR : —I received your s of the 3 rd insfc ., requesting information as to my experiment ^ with the Chinese . sugar cane , a few days since , and though , not aware that I can supply you with any additional information to what , I should suppose us generally known , or has been conveyed to the public through othersources , I will simply state my oxperioncc of last year , leaving to your dis cretionary power its disposal . I would recommend to those who design raising the article this year , to put in six or ei ght seeds to the hill , as my experience has shown that the cane is not liable to sucker when a large number of stalks come up to * gether . As regards the amount of molaaaes &lt; produced per acre , I find , from several acres measured , that I made last fall only from 150 to 175 gallons per acre . Olcott s statement of 468 gallon * per aore , I can hardly conceive correct , though...
