May [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

May I marked the Spring as she passed along . With her eye ol light and her lip of song ; While she stole In peace o er the green earth s breast . While the streams sprang out from the Icy rest . The budt bent lower to the breezes sigh , And their breath went forth in the scented sky ; When the fields looked fresh in their sweet repose , And the young dews slept on the new bom rose . WILLIS G . CJ-ARK . The great stretches of prairie again have on their coat of green , dappled with the vernal flora that nestles close to the scorched turf , where tho autumn fires had lapped up the herbage of the departed year ; the meadows lay smiling in their green vesture and the new sown fields are sending out their luxuriant blades to drink in the morning dew ; while the great corn fields ot * the teeming west are now receiving the seed from the hand of the busy farmer ; the flocks and herds aro feeding in lazy quiet on the prairie billows ; the orchards are clothed in gorgeous livery , and all n...

The Farmer ' s Enemies—No . 2 . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

The Farmer s Enemies—No . 2 . Tor the Illinois Farmer . In the rapid review of the injurious Mammals of Illinois , in my previous article , I expressly omitted the Rodents . Therefore , I shall now take up this numerous order , which contains more than half tho species of the North American Mammals , and an equal proportion of the Illinois Mammals . But before I commence the list I must be allowed to state , that to the labors of that persevering young Naturalist , Robert Kennicott , are wo indebted for the best history of Illinois Rodents extant , and from which I shall draw largely . The works of Audubon and Baehman , and Robert Kennicott , together with the Monograph of North American Mammals by Dr . S . F . Baird , have exhausted the subject so far as descriptions are concerned . Yet the geographical distribution of species , their habits and peculiarities , still afford an open field for inquiry . The liodentia arc distinguished by two large incisor teeth in each jaw , with sha...

The Culture of Vines . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

The Culture of Vines . The time is now approaching when melons of all kinds should be planted for the main crop . Select a piece of good , rich , new or sod land , more particularl y for watermelons . Skillman s fine netted melons do very well on older land , provided it is black , good and rich . A little compost or well rotted manue thrown in or about the hill , will often double or treble the crop . On good land , watermelons should not be planted at less tlian ten or twelve feet asunder , each way between the rows . The only kindthat-is fit to eat , Is the Mountain Sweet . We used to think others were good before we ^ knew how good melons tasted . Last year we used up all our seed ot Mountain Sweets , and got them pretty well killed by theJune frost . Having plenty of old seed , ¦ which ive once thought first rate , we planted them . They produced well . Large , fine looking melons—give them to those who never tasted a Mountain Sweet , and they would pronounce them first rate . ...

Prairie Cellars . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Prairie Cellars . EDITOR ILLINOIS FAKMEB : —Your correspondent , Wm . S . Prose , asks how he can make a cellar upon our prairies so that the same will bo dry , well ventilated and secure from rats , frosts , & c . No difficulty need be experienced in making a cellar upon any place on our prairie possessing all the requirements of Mr . Prose . Brick for a wall , ( if hard burned , ) will answer a very good purpose in the absence of that better material stone , they are not as good as stone for the reason , that they absorb a large amount of moisture , ( even if of the best quality , ) rendering your wall less secure against frost in consequence . The wall should be not less than one foot in thickness , and tho foundation for the -wall should project one foot outside of main wall , and be well laid in cement , the object of which , is to prevent rats from getting in from the outside , it is a well known fact , that rats , in making their entry into a cellar always follow ...

Why Don't the West Haaulaetwe ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Why Dont the West Haaulaetwe ! This question is often asked us , and we can make no better reply than to point to the extensive works in the cut above , and they are but one in a thousand of similar ones to be found all through the Prairie State . When the next census is complete , tho amount of capital engaged in manufacture will astonish those not well posted . Some suppose that because we have no cotton factories , that we have no machinery , but this is a great mistake . At Rockford , the Rochester of the west , an immense water power is used , and at Moline on the Mississippi , the water power is second only to that at Niagara , ihose who talk ot the Want of water power at the west , know but little about it . Moline can outrival any town in New England . The Rock and Eox rivers pour their large volumes of water over beds of limestone , and from their rapid descent , could and will build up manufacturing villages every few miles * Northern Illinois will ere long be the New Engl...

icrieulluril Instruction . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

icrieulluril Instruction . The west is largely agricultural in its interests . To all time this must bo tho predominating employment of our laboring people . Their experience lias not been of tho most favorable kind . Agriculture has indeed paid , but rather from a coincidence of favoring circumstances than any thing else . While railways were building , population rushing in from abroad , short crops in the east , or in Europe and prices corresponding above tho regular or ordinary range then agriculture was remunerating . But , for two years past , it has been quite the reverse , and when we come to see that with the exception of these extraordinary seasons of scarcity abroad , farming has n-jt of itself been a paying business , we arc led to inquire why things are so . Tho farmers nearly all tell us the profit of farming is in the rise of property—but that is not farming , and the advance a farmer realises from these sources are no more creditable to farming per se , than the gain...

Beautify Your Homes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Beautify Your Homes . Editor Illinois Farmer : There is a cord which vibrates in our hearts at the thought , that we possess a beautiful ftome . It is rather the property of the heart , and is so interwoven among its tendrils , that it seems to change its pulsations , direct its movements , improves and ennobles its nature , teaches it to rise , to look up after the beautiful and the good . Tho associations that spring up and gather in bright clusters , around our home , are scenes fraught with life s holiest emotions . It is tho Sanctuary of tho Lord , where the Sp irit inherits , its purest and holiest thoughts , and wherever its influence is felt , morality is purified and exalted , virtue courted and happiness perfected . Tho human mind naturally seeks the beautiful . It courts beauty in all its forms , all its dreams are mingled with the elements of imperishable beauty . Home is the word which , like the magic ring , of old , brings to life all the nobler impulses of the heart ...
