BlacHtiry Wine . For the Illinois Fanner . ASHLET , March 12 , I 860 . EDITOR . ILLINOIS FARMER : —The way we made our wines is as follows : 3 berries and 5 waters ; that is , 3 cations of good ripe berries well washed , and then add water to the berries enough to strain out 8 gallons of liquid , and then add 3 lbs . of brown sugar to overy gallon of liquid , and mix well and let it stand 24 hours and scum , and then put in cask , fill full , leare the bung out for six weeks ; fill up the cask every day as it works out . I think it would be better to put half and half berries and water ; that is , hare one gallon of berries make two gallons of liquid . Yours respectfully , CHENEY POST &amp; Co . We have a sample of the blackberry wine of Messrs . Cheney Post &amp; Co ., and pronouoce it superior to any samples exhibited at the State Fair , and with one exception , the best that we have met with , and that was made with loaf sugar which gave it a clear , light color ,...

Houscktepin ; . For the Illinois Farmer . CHICAGO , March 16 , 1 S 60 . EDITOR ILLINOIS FARMER : — The March number of the Illinois Farmer , came to hand just in time to relieve the tedium of convalescence from sickness . I have read it carefully , and recognize but one deficiency in its conduct , viz not telling the wives and sisters hoio to cook those fine varieties of squashes , beans , etc ., etc . I am not a very old or experienced housekeeper—only an average one—but if you have a corner for a few good recipes , I will cheerfully furnish them . The old-fashioned method of putting up apple sauce for the winter , out of down apples when cider is sweet and cheap ,-is familiar to every one who has had access to a bounteous farmer s table . But with those farmers , who put up a large quantity of fruit in the Fall , there will always be much that will rapidly decay on the approach of warm weather . My method has been to sort them over weekly , and carefully * peeling and coring the d...
Firm llouics . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860
Firm llouics . A New York merchant of wealth purchased a farm out west for a promising son ; within a year he became unwell . Inquiries were made as to his sleeping room ; the answer was , that he had for his chamber a large upper room , well lighted . His sister paid him a visit , and soon observed that his clothing in his wardrobe was damp , while that in the drawers were actually moulded ; when the fact presented itself , that the room was on the north side , of the house , overlooking an immense prairie , and that no ray of sunshine ever entered fiom one year s end to another . He returned to New York ana died of tuberculous disease , which , with great certainty was hastened , if not originated , by the unfortunate position of his chamber . The lesson is , that the family room , the sleeping apartment , the study , in short , any apartment which is occupied for the greater part of each twenty-four hours , Bhould have its windows facing the south , as nearly as possible , so tha...

EDITOR ILLINOIS FARMER : —Can you or some of your correspondents give me some information in relation to that important part of a farmer s home comfort , a good cellar ? 1 st . Where would yon put it , under the house or have it separate ; is it not unhealthy under the house ? 2 d . Of what would you construct it , to have it dry , well lighted and ventilated , rat and mice proof ? 3 d . Can you give us any directions in growing forest trees , say a grove of four acres , so as to shelter the orchard and farm crops from severe winds , the timber for posts when hedges are not wanted , and for tbe repairing and making of farm tools ? How would you prepare the ground , what trees would you plant , and how cultivate them ? Ought not tbe rows to run so as to conduct the winds around the orchard ?

Agricultural Progress in Adams . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860
Agricultural Progress in Adams . QmscT , March 12 , I 860 . Editor Illinois Farmer : I herewith send you a statement iu regard to a crop of potatoes entered for premium at our last county fair , you can do as you think best about publishing it , at any rate , it will show what can be done in Adams county in the way of raising potatoes . Valentine Davis , being duly sworn , says : that he raised a crop of potatoes on his farm in Concord township , Adams county , the present season , on land measuring one half acre ; and that the produce of said crop was two hundred and eighty ( 280 ) bushels , estimated b y legal measurement , being equal to five hundred and sixty ( 560 ) bushels per acre ; that the specimens presented are a fair average sample of the whole crop , &amp; c . And in answer to the questions as printed in our lists , he replied as follows : 1 . Kind of son ? A . Rather sandy timbered land . 2 . What kind , and how much , manure applied ? A . No manure for sevente...
siSv ^ lfilffiS ^ [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860
siSv ^ lfilffiS ^ We often have patches of weeds to plow under . Sometimes tho weeds in our buckwheat patch get so high that we cannot cover them . This , to us , was a source of annoyance . We first tried the log chain ; but it was not satisfactory . Wo next bolted a piece of timber to the beam , at the end of which we put through a bolt . This did the work quite satisfactorily , and we used it several years . We then thought of substituting iron for wood ; and after several attempts , ( for we are no great genius at invention , ) we succeeded in getting the weed hook as herewith presented . We have no idea of making it any more perfect , and give full permission to any one who will improve upon it . The most stubborn corn-stalks must yield to it ; the tallest of weeds must come under . But we must give you notice that loose rubbish will clog it , and it is useless to put it in a field of dry weeds , loose at the bottom , dead tumble weeds , or anything that is not fast to the grou...
Eraft . nr the Cherry , etc . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860
Eraft . nr the Cherry , etc . Downing says that grafting commences earliest with the cherry and plum , and ends with the pear and apple . Tho precise time of course varies with the season and tbe climate , but is generally comprised from February to the middle of April . That so close observers as the brothers Downing -should write so loose a paragraph , on such an important subject , we are at a loss to determine , other than that grafting is not well understood in New York , or that budding is more popular . Grafting the cherry is so little resorted to there , that we may take a little of both conclusions .. On the prairies the new set buds of the cherry are liable to winter kill , more especially on the Mahaleb 8 nd Mazzard stocks , which are often killed to the ground , bud and all ; at the same time the Morrello presents a hardy stock for us , though it must be confessed with the bad habit . of sending up suckers ; but with deep tillage and deep planting , this will to some ext...
Small Frnils . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860
Small Frnils . At the meeting of the State Horticultural Society at Eloomington , it was suggested tha the so-called small fruits be called the groat fruits , from the fact that at the north they arc reall y the most valuable and reliable , ready at all seasons , either fresh from vine or shrub , dry ia the pantry , or cozily stowed away in a cool nook in the cellar in can or jar ; in fact , tlicy are the fruit of the year , and must have some more significant name than the term small , for though small in size compared to the orb-like fpple , yet from their great valueasa staple luxury , they rank high and large . Though cheaply grown and a sure crop , yet by being termed small they have been overlooked . Lot us give them a name that shall be significant of their value , and they will thrive in every farmer s garden , in every mechanic s village plat , and along the borders of every yard . Make them popular and they will be grown , show them to be profitable and they will be cultiv...
