Winter Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

Winter Wheat . In the south part of the State the crop is good , but more north there is complaint of winter killing and damage from the Hessian Fly . But we apprehend , that it is not as bad as reported , as -we have been over some of the damaged districts . The small breadth sown is the real difficulty .

Home Talk . ' ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

Home Talk . ¦ For tb « Illinois Farmer . A . comprehensiveness of grasp , a clearness of perception , a power to command language and readiness in expression , ar » qualities to be sought after and admired . We are delighted with the well chosen language of the public address . — The orator s power lies much in the music tones of the language he calls to his aid . We are fascinated with the good conversationalist— wonder at the strange charm like spell as the g lad ear takes in the harmony of sweet sound . We are particular and choice in the language we make use of in company ; yet at home sometimes indulge in low , gross expressions that could onl y have had their ori g in in groveling minds . It is at home that the power of language is known and felt ; here a pure language would bring the spirit into harmony with the beautiful and true . It is at home m the private circle that the tenderest , holiest feelings are called into action . Then home is the place to speak a pure language...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

RATJLE S JAHBT , called also Neverfail , Rockrimon , Janet , Genitan and Jenetan is one of the most popular winter fruits in the latitude south of Bloomington . — The tree is of rather slow growth , upright with speckled shoots . The tree starts several days later than others , except the Northern Spy , which it resembles in form and color of tree ; consequently it blooms after the others , and many times escapes late spring frosts . The tree is hardy and very productive . For description , see any work on fruits . WINE S AP , is another favorite apple for winter , good for early cooking and for cider—is hardy and productive . No farmer can have too many trees of either of the above , for they will pay in spite of even bad treatment . The Wine Sap is a spreading , rather straggling grower , with dark , almost black shoots . It is in eating before the Janet , which follows it in season .

Spriflg in Egypt . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

Spriflg in Egypt . For the Illinois Farmer . In this beautiful land of Egypt , already does the sweet spring time give us presage of the near return of that milder season , when the drawing-room and parlor may be found in all beautiful p laces in the temple of nature . — Slowly but unerringly the outer world is advancing . We already inhale the warming breath . of spring ; delig ht the eyes with new developing beauties , catch the cheering sound of natures music . Nature , after all , is a great teacher . In her unselfish pages we find lessons and sympathies for all . It is sad indeed , here , in a land Ahere a kind Father has been so lavish with his gifts , to see those that have no perception of its charms , and can walk through its varied beauties —her wood-crowned hills , and lovel y vales , and not behold the wisdom of the All Father in the dazzling magnificence and grandeur of the scenery . While all are revelling in the delights of spring a large portion of the time of the ti...

Important Discovery , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

Important Discovery , It is announced that Prof . Greenough , of New Orleans , has discovered a method by which caxnphene or common burning fluid may he rendered inesplosive , and therefore comparatively harmless . His method is by the impregnation of the fluid with carbonic acid gas , which acts as a neutralizing agent . It is objected that after a certain length of time , the carbonic acid gas will evaporate , thus leaving the fluid as dangerous as before . In reply to this objection , it need only be answered that the specific gravity of this gas as compared with atmospheric air is 1 . 52 , so that jts evaporation can only take place by mechanical means ; that is by combination with tho lighter gas evolved by the fluid , a very slow process indeed . If the discovery be all that is claimed for it , it will be one of immense importance to the fluid-burning public . It may well be doubted whether murder , in any form , can claim as many victims as the use of camphene . Scarcely a pa...

County Fairs , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

County Fairs , ® lte pbui * gamut . SPRINGFIELD , APRIL I , I 860 . BAILHACHE Se BftKER , Publishers . M . L . DtrNLAP , Editor . County Agricultural Fairs have now become a part and parcel of our social enginery , and without some substitute they could not well be abandoned . The old annual muster , or general training day , has become obsolete , and in its place stands forth the annual County Fair . We grant that it is a decided improvement , but there is a respectable margin for more of the same sort . — There are loud complaints of favoritism in the awards , and of tho want of tact in the management . As a general thing , ¦ we think the proof is wanting in the first , but abounds in abundance in the second . The management generall y devolves upon a few individuals , and often these have been chosen a nd entrusted with the management , when if the members had asked themselves the simple question , are these men capable ? the selection would have been different . In no position d...

The ¥ WcsWe . MUSIC IN THE HOUSEHOLD . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

The ¥ WcsWe . MUSIC IN THE HOUSEHOLD . All boys and girls hare a strong desire for amusements , especially during the long winter evenings , and if this natural desire is not ministered unto by rational amusements being furnished b y parents , they will be inclined to seek it elsewhere than within the home circle , and if restrained within these bounds , they become morose , and lose that interest under the parental roof that should always mark the devotion of the younger members of the family . It is the want of something to fill up the void during the hours of relaxation from work or study that gives such a craving — such a strong desire to leave home and to seek for enjoyment in othex-BnciaLcircles ; jt _ is this which strands so many young men in our large cities ; it is the sound of revelry that invites them into the toils of danger , and sends them back to their country home with shame , or drags them down to an early grave ; better give them rational enjoyment that should bin...

Tlic Farmer's Enemies . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1860

Tlic Farmers Enemies . For Uu IUlnoli Farmer . Although the farmer meets with many enemies not belonging to the Animal Kingdom , yet it is to this division , of nature we intend to confine our inquiries at present . And surely it cannot fail to be interesting to the farmer to glance over this vast assemblage and mark those that are against him as well as those for him . — We would much prefer being simply de scriptive than systematic , but as the former method would require too much space , we must of necessity adopt the latter plan in part , as by this method we may often at a single stroke dismiss a considerable portion of this vast kingdom . Naturalists have divided the whole Animal Kingdom into four great branches , as follows : First , the Vertebrata , those having back-bones , as quadrupeds , birds , fishes and reptiles . Second , Articulate as lobsters , spiders , centipedes and insects , Third , JaoUusca t as shellfish , snails , slugs , & c . Fourth , Radiat a ,...

Serins : is Coming . Yes , Spring is coming . He is playing hide and seek amid the peach hills of Egypt , and soon he will take to the track of the Great Illinois Central Kail way and give us a pleasant greeting . — Come on , Spring , we shall be most happy to welcome you to the prairie slopes and picturesque groves of our Champaign . A friend writing us from Jonesboro , says that on the 8 th inst ., we had rhubarb pies made from rhubarb grown in the open ground , in my garden , from plants set out last year—lots of peaches in Egypt yet . Bo not see that the young trees suffered from the winter at all ; wheat looks fine—weather pleasant—several varieties of native flowers are in bloom , —lilacs almost out . Give Spring a start this way , friend Wiley , that we too may enjoy fresh rhubarb p ies and vernal flowers . Hereaway old Winter has sent young Spring to the wall , and once more reminded the boys of their skates . The ice is an inch thick , and the signal notes of Spring are no ...
