Old Firkin Heard From . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Old Firkin Heard From . ORIQO * . III ., April 19 . 1800 . EMTOB , ILWNOIS FABMER : —If yon please to accept a few rambling thoughts from 0 . P ., of northern Illinois , here they are : No doubt in the estimation of all Egypt ( bounded on the north b y the Ohio and Mississippi R . R . ) according to your notion of things geographically , we , who live in this ice bound region are much to be pitied , because we cannot have the p leasure of listening to the first notes of the feathered songsters , or participate in the enjoyment of early vegetables , & c . By this notice of Egypt , ( which undoubtedly has its advantages , ) I only wish to remind you and others , who like you seem to have forgotten the fact , that by special resolution , passed unanimously , at the Farmers Congress at Freeport last fall , Egypt now extends to Lake Superior ; so let us have no more of your narrow contracted Egypt . Is not that so friend Boots ?—[ A . ] We have had a very remarkable spring . ...

® lw piniott ! ^ jumcv . SPRINGFIEI . D , MAY - 1 , 1800 . BAILSACHE & BAKES , Publishers M . L . DTJHLAP , Editor . The cultivation of the farm grasses and clover have been too much neglected , and should receive more of our attention . Throughout the northern counties , this is done to some extent , and red clover and Hurds grass are receiving a fair share of attention , but on tho stock farms of central Illinois the common prairie grasses and the cornfields are tho main reliances . To this there are some excellent exceptions , and among these stand foremost Capt . J . N . Brown , of Sangamon county , with his immense pastures of blue grass , the most valuable of all the cultivated grasses for pasture . On farms intended for grain mainly , tho red clover will prove of great value , it makes good pasturage , excellent hay , and is a valuable fertilizer for wheat , oats and corn . Our farmers do not appear to understand its nature , and often complain that it runs out , ...

The I'lcuTO-Piicuniouia Epizootic . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

The IlcuTO-Piicuniouia Epizootic . [ From the Country Gentleman and Cultivator . ] This contagious infectious cattle distemper is very justly exciting much attention among the owners of cattle not only , but also among all other classes , for all are consumers of beef , milk , butter or cheese , and have therefore a deep interest in the subject . Hence the execution of the late law passed by the Lgislature , by the commissioners appointed for that purpose , though a terrible necessity , is looked upon with very general approval , as it should be . Its contagious character seems to be confirmed beyond a doubi . though some of the V . S . practitioners deny it , which is about as reasonable as it would be , to deny any other well authenticated historic fact . Every case of the disease is traceable to one of two sources—either to Mr . Chenery s stock in Belmont , into which the disease was introduced by his importation of four Dutch Cows from Holland , which arrived here the 23 d of la...

Fruit Prospect in Egypt . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Fruit Prospect in Egypt . SOUTH PASS , AprU 20 , 1 SC 0 . MB . EDFTOB : —Some of your readers may be interested in hearing from Egypt , which is now emerging from her clouds and darkness and is rapidly improving in the growing of her choice fruits . The season thus far has been very favorable for fruit growing , and at present promises an a / bundant crop , vegetation of all kinds is now so far advanced that we begin to feel safe against the late frosts . There are but few of the cultivated varieties that have been planted in this section long enough to be in bearing . We have within one mile and a half of this station five locations which are elevated from 125 to 200 feet above the road , and may be called good or even superior locations , that have been improved and set with the choicest varieties , and all has been done within the last two years except one . There are several others within the same distance , comparatively good , that have not been improved with anything except s...

Tile Cattle flislcmpcr in north Drookficld , Mass . [ From uie Springfield Republican . April 24 th . l The commissioners on the cattle disease continued at North Brookfield and vicinity through last week , making observations among the cattle herds of tho neighboring towns , so as to trace and define tho limits of the contagion . On Saturday , Gov . Banks joined them , and the character of the disease was exhibited to him by killing several additional animals in the herds among which it exists in a marked degree . The value of those bought and killed by the commissioners , for which the State by the law is to pay , was , up to Saturday night , $ 3 , 7 # 0 . A large number , some 200 or 300 , have been enjoined or put under arrest by the commissioners . The owners of these cattle cannot remove them from their farms , and with the exception of their oxen , not from their barns and yards , Tho oxen are allowed to be used upon the farms of the owners .

Quantity of Seed per Acre . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Quantity of Seed per Acre . In a lato communication to the Rural American , Mr . John Johnston says : I once sent a man out to sow clover seed with a sowing machine that would sow five quarts of timothy seed , or any quantity more I might wish . I set it for sowing clover the same as for sowing five quarts of timothy . I gave the man seed enough to keep him sowing till noon , as I thought ; but in about two hours he was home for more seed . Being sure that he had either driven the horse far too fast , or sown far too thick , I went to see , and found he had sown full twenty-four quarts to the acre ; and as the machine could be set no closer , I stopped it , and had the balance of the field sown by hand , at the rate of not quite ten pounds per acre- The result was , where the twenty-four quarts was sown to the acre , the clover never got taller than the natural white clover we some seasons have in such quantities , but which is generally too short to cut ; while that sown at about t...

EDITOR'S TABLE . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

EDITORS TABLE . We fire again at the fireside of the farmers of the Northwest , and we find a wide difference of climate among them . In Union county , the wheat la heading ont ; the fruit is well advanced , and all nature is wearing the livery of summer ; Uio forests ore clothed in the deepest green , and the fear of frost no longer troubles the peach grower or the market gardener . At our own home the blossoms are just dropping from the apple , the spring grains are sending out their tillers and com planting is ( be order of the day . Since the 20 th of April the corn farmer liaa been busy dropping the seed ; Away further north the blossoms , of the apple are just burst lug forth , and the tiny leaves of the forest are putting forth their verdure , but May will be far gone before the deep shades of the waving leaf , full grown , shall proclaim the reign of summer . But all these changes fail to thrill the heart of the Editor as of old ; labor to him Is a task , and It is with an e...

Fawkes' Steam Plow , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 May 1860

Fawkes Steam Plow , [ From the Chicago Press and Tribune ] WEST URBANA , April 21 , 1 SG 0 . Fawkes arrived here yesterday , and reports a new machine nearly ready to run , at tho shop of Miles Greenwood , Cincinnati . lie will ship the plows used here , and which are cast steel clippers , for their trial on the new machine . Ho is busy taking drawings and dimensions for important improvements on tho Lancaster , and expects to have it ready to run by the 15 th of May , so as to give ns the benefit of a crop of sod corn . A company of capitalists have been formed for the purpose of bringing it to perfection , and we may now look forward to a solution of the question of steam plowing at an early day . It will thus be seen that our views in relation to the imperfections o £ tne machine have been proved correct , and that the shouts of a crowd at our Fairs are not to be taken as a true exponent of new principles in machines . The proposed improvements we think must add to the value of t...
