SILK . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1845

SILK . [ For the Prairie Farmer .. ll : Y c . E . WING . MESSRS . EDITORS : I am sorry to observe that iii several of your last numbers nothing is said respecting the culture of tho mulberry tree , or the manufacture of silk . And now permit me to say , if you please , that in my humble opinion this is a : subject which ought , more or less , to engross the attention of every farmer in this community . I don t know that many others would : bo willing to pay it tho same deference that I do ; but in a young and thriving country like this , where nature lias made ample provision to mete out a complete measure to industry in all iis . vajrieties , it would be highly inconsistent , nay ; criminal , to let enterprise run so low as to be insufficient to provide for ourselves those necessaries which through our genial 1 cH tnalo and , fertile soil , we are able to do ; to say nothing of a surplus for foreign markets . I for one am very well satisfied that a greater profit may be realized fr...

ALLEN'S HERD BOOK , [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1845

ALLENS HERD BOOK , CIRCULAR . Sir : —About a year ago , at the solicitation of a number of gentlemen interested in the-breeding of Short Horn Cattle , I published a notice in several of the agricultural papers of the United States , ( hat I would get up an American Herd Book , provided my efforts should be seconded b y a respect-able portion of those engaged in-that pursuit . Although sl ow in tfeeir responses , a considerable number oi breeders have forwarded the pecfrgrees of their herds for insertion according to the terms of my proposa ! 1 . Many , however , and among them some of the early arid distinguished promoters of this branch of agricultural improvement , remain unmindful of this opportunity others recording their valuable stock . A sufficient number of individuals baring already contributed the pedigrees of their cattle lb insure its publication-, the work will proceed as soon as circumstances will permit , which whTbe within three months from this time .

TO FKIEND 3 AND AGENTS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1845

TO FKIEND 3 AND AGENTS . We thank you k over and over again , for your efforts for the past two months . The number of subscribers for thai period is several times greater than in any previous year ; though the reduced price , $ 1 . 25 for 18 months , has probably aided some , yet the chief cause of ihe increase is the efficiency of . new made friends and the increased zeal of old ones . They shall find another year ,- their labor in- oiw behalf is not lost to themselves . Several , to whom we have sent a prospectus recently , we have heard of , as procuring more or less subscribers , whom we have not yet heard from , not having got all the names they expect . These we shall hope soon to hear from ; and as the last solicitation for this volume , we would ask all our friends to make one more effort this month to procure subscribers for the 18 months . We prefer these subscriptions ; for though the first payments are not eo profitable to us , yet by their taking the paper so long they...

HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1845

HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS GOOD COOKING w . POOR . The advantages of good cooking are so many and various that it is not easy to string them all together ; nor , is it perhaps the fact that one in a hundred of all who practice either good or poor ever reflect en the reasons of it . It is done either from habit or from that sense of propriety which is nigher to an instinct than any thing else—and in which the female part of our species so much excel . Sttll it is obvious that the matter is as well worthy of refleciion and study as any other which concerns daily avocations or domestic life . To divide the subject off in sermon-like fashion—the principal reasons may be ranked under three heads ; via . personal comfort , Health , and Its bearing on moral and intellectual culture . Housekeepers may be likewise divided into three ranks in relation to their modes of doing business . One class do every thing uniformly well—neatness , taste , and economy are always consulted . Another class vary from...

THE FARMERS' LIBRARY AND MONTHLY JOURNAL OF A G . R 1 CTJJ . TI } RE , Edited by J . S . Skinner . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1845

THE FARMERS LIBRARY AND MONTHLY JOURNAL OF A \ G . R 1 CTJJ . TI } RE , Edited by J . S . Skinner . The plan of this paper is still different from that of the Quarterly Journal of Agriculture ; ( noticed last month ;) and if well carried out will place Ihe farming community under great obligations to the publishers . There are published in Europe a great number of choice works upon practical and scientific agriculture ,, which only make iheir appearance in this country on the shelves , of largo libraries , and which consequently never pass into the hands . of common readers ^—the publication of tlicm not being warranted by sales here . The design of the publishers m this case is to give rcpriblications of these works , and afford them at about one fifth of the European price . To this about one hundred pages in each monthly number are devoted . These pages may-be detached from the rest of the work , of which they form a separate part , and be bound in volumes by themselves . In the ...

My plan would be to have 4 lots , or rriore if possible , with water in them , the corn id be ent up . 1 -. The plan we now have in culling is , to throw down an- arm . full on the ridge in the . centre of the shock , 14 or 16 hills square , and then cross-pile on that till the shock is done . The lots to havehars or gales for pass-way arid , hauling in titer com . If any beef cattle are-fed , they should be the first to- the feed ; if not , the stock you wish lo haver the best keeping to be first , the second best next , and so on down , including horses , sheep and hogs—to be shifted ; is often as the feed requires , in the circuit of lots . Sheltering on the northwest is desirable . In ( his way , corn , fodder , anil husk , are all used to advantage , and the field clear of stalks ...

MOWIS 6 WHEAT , & c . [ For the Prairie Farmer . IIY JAM KS M . GOOflllUK .- MESSRS . EDITORS : Have any of your readers ever tried the effect of mowing tlieir wheat in the spring ? The experiment has been- made tliis-season with such decided success by soirie of tile farmers in this neighborhood , thatI wish you to be informed of the results . Mr . Ashley had a field of winter wheat , growing on the bottom land of the Grant River—a stream much like the Dtt Page . In the spring , when the wheat had grownto the height of seven or eight inches—and being thickly interspersed with weeds , it was evidently too luxuriant , anil threatened to be a mere mass of lodged straw with heads that would never fill , and iri short not worth harvesting . He took a scythe and mowedthe greater part of the field . Tire part of the field . thus mowed produced a fine crop of clean , straight , well-filled wheat , entirely free from weeds . The remainder of the field -at the same time was badly...
