DDK TRIP . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

DDK TRIP . INDUSIPOLIB , Ind ., Jtraa S , 1660 . The Great Western Railroad commencing at Naples on the Illinois river , runs east . through the heart of the great corn zone of the State , passing Jacksonville , Decatur , Tolono , Danville , to tbe State line in direction of the Toledo , and connecting at Fort Wayne with the great through route via Chicago , Pittsburgh and Baltimore east ., THE CROPS . From Springfield to Tolono we observe but little winter wheat , but what there is looks well . But little spring wheat is sown , though every year in this part of the State this grain is becoming more and more popular , and at no distant day will rank high among the staple products of Central Illinois— Rye looks well and is quite largely cultivated ; but it is the great breadth of corn that attracts the eye of the traveler , the large fields stretch far down the prairie slopes , and away over the wave-like swells . Generally the rows have been laid straight , and now as the plants are...

The Catraut or Gooseberry Worm . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

The Catraut or Gooseberry Worm . [ From the Genesee Farmer . ] • The Gooseberry Worm ( JVeniatus trimac-lilal-ua , ) has already ( May 10 th , ) made its appearance here and commenced its work of destruction . In most gardens it is allowed to take its course , to the total destruction of both fruit and bushes ; while others , with commendable zeal , are combatting it with all the methods ingenuity can suggest , but we are sorry to say that in most cases the little armies arc the triumphant victors . The most usual methods employed to destroy these worms , are , first , hand-picking the bushes ; and this is the most effectual , as it is also the most laborious and expensive . It involves tbe necessity of looking over every leaf , picking off the worms and afterward destroying them ; this operation must be performed as often as any worms show themselves—sometimes every day , and again in two or three days . And this must be followed up until late in the summer ; a day s neglect , or e...

Draining and Subsoiling . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

Draining and Subsoiling . We have an elaborate article on the above subjects from the pen of H . D . Woodruff , Secretary of the Adams County Agricultural and Mchanical Association , but our space will only admit of a portion of it . We do not like to divide an article in two numbers , so we have the necessity of condensation : —ED . In many parts of our State the soil when new and 6 rst broken up was filled with fibrous substances , which kept it loose , so as readily to filter the water , and winter wheat was successfully cultivated . But as those substances have decomposed and left the soil more compact , so that the Alteration of the water is obstructed , the crops are to a great degree liable to suffer from the frost . Draining is the only means to bring back such fields to wheat culture , and to secure at all times a sure and heavy crop . Under-draining as an art , has made great advances among the better class of farmers , especially in England , since the introduction of dra...

Finltrr Rearing . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

Finltrr Rearing . Editor Illinois Farmer : Since the successful combination of beauty with utility , in mechanical inventions , and ot pleasure with profit , in employments seems to be the grand desideratum of practical philosophers , permit mc a few remarks intended for your lady readers , upon a subject whose result is the latter combination . Among the various objects of industry , in which country maids and matrons are wont to engage , there is none more deserving of their attention , or better suited to their taste and capacity , than that of rearing poultry . And vet how few comparatively seem to consider it within their sphere of action , or think it more than proper , that its petty duties should devolve upon their brothers or husbands , who , amid other multiplied cares , are quite apt to neglect what might become an important department of farm interests . It is especially suited to those , to whom spare moments come but seldom , and would be grudgingly given to the cultiv...

Fairbanks' Scales * [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

Fairbanks Scales * Among the large number of the highest premiums awarded to these Scales during the last thirty years , by the most eminent scientific associations in the country , and by National , State and County Fairs , are thirteen by the Illinois , Wisconsin and Towa State Fairs of 1859 , and the National Fair held at the same time in Chicago , and that , too , after sharp competition and the most rigid tests . But what is of more importance to practical men , as showing not only the great strength and accuracy , but durability , of tho Scales , is the award of superiority in these respects by tho vast number who have -used them for many years , all over the world , almost , in all branches of business , and under all circumstances . The skill and enterprise of the Messrs . Fairbanks , and their large experience and unequaled facilities , enable them to adapt their Scales to aU required uses , and at moderate prices ; and so long as they keep them up to their present point of...

She pinote $ xxmx . SPRINGFIELD , JVLY I , 18 GO . BAILHAOHE & BAKES , Publishers . M . 1 . DUHLAP , Editor . The season has made a steady march into the heart of summer , and the ripened grain waves in golden glory , and is yielding to the sickle of the reaper as it goes singiug through its serried ranks with spikclets all reversed , for with it the battle of life is over , and the blades that so latel y stood upright , drinking in the morning dew , and made strong by the summer zephyrs , have bent their ripened heads and yielded up their values to the hand of the husbandman . Tho farmers of Central Illinois can sing a jubalant harvest home , for the yield of wheat , of oats , of rye , and of barley is good , even beyond their most sanguine expectations , while the corn is leaping and laughing and growing more vigorous , from day to day , and giving promise of a most bounteous harvest . The grass is onl y moderate , and the same may be said of potatoes and garden vegeta...

Strawberries as a ravin ? Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

Strawberries as a ravin ? Crop . When ia Cincinnati , a few days since , we were forcibly struck with the large amount of strawberries sold in that market , which must amount to several hundreds of bushels daily . To produce this amount of fruit , pick and market it , must require a large amount of farm labor . The retail price was ten cents per quart , with brisk sales ; at wholesale was six to eight cents , according to quality , put up in drawers , the drawers cither paid for or returned as agreed upon . The cost per quart to Chicago is about two cents , being a net cost of say ten cents , and retail at fifteen cents . When in Chicago the last of May , wc called at the fruit stand of H . Newhall , in Dearborn street , and were shown a lot of Crimson Corn Strawberries , grown at South Pass , ( Cobden ) iu Union county , picked the day before , shipped G P . M . and at 9 A . M . next morning was in market , as fresh as though they had just come from some neighboring garden . The be...

The Value of Deep Plowing for Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

The Value of Deep Plowing for Corn . Mr . J . TV . Prose , of Tuscola , Douglas county , informs us that last year he laised one hundred and ninety bushels of corn from three acres of ground , while his neighbors that had eight and ten acres , did not get more . He plowed his ground ten inches deep , laid it off about three feet , and planted the same distance apart in the row , two ker nels in each hill . The ground was prairie , plowed for the second time . — The seed used was common white corn . This shows what can be done hy deep plowing and thorough culture , We can point out any number of farmers who had thirty and forty acres of corn last year , who did not get more than thirty bushels to the acre , when if they had planted only one half as much , and had taken care of it would have had the same amount of corn and not had to run over a large field to get a poor return for a poor investment . If we had thirty acres of corn planted , and found that we could only cultivate twent...

The Cattle Disease . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

The Cattle Disease . [ From tbe nomdtud , nartford . Conn . FALSE ALARM . Certain timorous souls have , it would seem , been frightened out of all propriety , by exaggerated rumors that this disease had come , or was gradually advancing over the State , and there have been a class of people , perhaps from superior wisdom , or from constitutional conservatism , who have scouted the idea , and have clearly perceived , even as it has now proved , that there was no danger at all , or next to none ; there is every reason , 5 say they , to suppose that it will die out before long ; that if now it is virulent , soon it will he found to yield to remedies , like small pox , etc . Others say , it arises from close stables , and is catching if animals have been kept in unventilated stalls , but not otherwise ; others , that have known the disease for years , and doctored it with success , and that this slaughtering of well animals , or those slightly diseased , is perfectly barbarous . Well , ...

STRAWS . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1860

STRAWS . For the Illinois Farmer . Having jnst completed the assessing of the town of Marion , in the county of Ogle , which is considerably larger than a congressional townships , having nearly one half of the town of Byron added , I have made the following observations , and I will only premise that our town is thickly populated , and has within its borders few unfilled acres and wood lands . One farmer has a dozen four year old steers , outside of which there are four or five single ones , and three yoke of oxen . We have within our town limits less than one hundred sheep in two or three small flocks Only four farmers have twenty hogs or more , and only one over fifty . Threefourths of the inhabitants will not make more than their own supply of pork and the majority of the other fourth will sell less than ten hogs each . Wo have within this town , perhaps as many horses as any one town in the State ; one farmer having listed thirty-two and quite a number over twelve each , I may ...

At our first meeting , In January , the prospects of the farmer had for a long time been shrouded in gloom , and the tone was one of despondency ; but brighter aides have brought teeming fields , and the hopes of all , BO much before depressed , have become bouyant ; and now every where we meet with cheerful smllesand cordial greeting .
