THE CATTLE DISEASE . , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

THE CATTLE DISEASE . , REPORT OF DR . McFARLAND , COMMISSIONER , TO THE GOVERNOR OF ILL 12 T 0 IS . In pursuance of tho instructions of Governor Wood / Andrew McParland , M . D ., as commissioner of the Stato of Illinois , has issued a report upon tho Cattle Disease , which has been making such sad havoc among tho cattle of the Eastern . States . The report is embodied in a pamphlet of thirty-two pages , and discusses the history , the manifestations and the remedy of the distemper . His investigations were made upon the spot , he having visited the section of country where the disease exists , in company with other scientific men of tho East . We have before us a copy of his report , which wo have read with much interest , and we doubt not it will be received by tho people of Illinois , —who are so especially concerned in the matter—with general satisfaction . Wo-make some extracts from the pamphlet : HISTORY OF THE DISEASE . The disease , somewhat unfortunately called PISEURO-PNEC...

OUR CANADIAN TISJTOItS . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

OUR CANADIAN TISJTOItS . THEIR EXOURBIOH THROUGH THE NORTHWEST . A large delegation of our Canadian neighbors have spent a few days among us , of which we propose to give some account , having traveled with them for some days in sight seeing . Our readers will recollect that during the very unfavorable Bcason of 1858 , the Hon . J . Caird , of Edinburgh , spent some weeks in our State , and on his return wrote a series of letters in relation to the country , more especially as to the value of the lands of the Illinois Central R . K . Company , which were at that time attracting no small attention among British and Canadian farmers . This book met with a most bitter and untruthful review by a prominent Canadian , and has been the means of preventing a large emigration to our State . This review was ably answered in several of tho Canadian papers , but its malignity was not so easily wiped out . To counteract this poison , and to show that the statements of Mr . Caird wero truthful , ...

Wlxc pUtwte JiMwt * . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

Wlxc pUtwte JiMwt * . SPRINGFIELD , AUGUST 1 , 1860 . BftTT . HAOHE tc BASER Pnblishers , M . L . DUWLAP , Editor . The season continues favorable , abundant rains hare fallen since our last issue and the wheat and oats have been mainly harvested . The yield of both is satisfactory , and as the price is high , the margin of profit is all that could be desired . Threshing is fairly commenced , and we shall soon hear of large shipments . Nothing has occurred to mar tho fine prospect of the corn crop which must in any event be enormous . The potatoe crop in the north part of the State is said to he good , in the central it will be fair , tubers large , but too few in a hill . Of buckwheat not tho usual breadth has-been sown , nor will it be needed , as with such an abundance of fine vegetables , less will be used . Farmers have sown more or less turnips , as this crop is becoming more of a favorite from year to year . The hay crop in many parts of the State appears light , especially i...

Horse Taming . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

Horse Taming . Within a few years , great improvements have been made in the training of the horse . Nostrums acd nonsense have been thrown aside , and the disposition and capacity of the horse have studied and substituted in their stead . The result has been a decided progress in subduing and controlling him . It is useless to go into a history of the past , and we prefer to deal with the active present . To those who fancy the Rary system of horse taming a humbug , we would say that they know nothing of it , or have been imposed upon by some traveling quack , with more brass than horse knowledge . This race of men will live and thrive so long as our farmers fail to keep posted up in the progress of the age , so long as a part of our farmers cannot distinguish truth from error , ignorance is always the ready victim of hum r bug , and the first to swallow the fiction . To break an active wide awake colt to the bit , to be rode and to work , was no small task with the best of horseme...

History of llie Steel Plow . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

History of llie Steel Plow . It has been our purpose for a long time to preserve from the rust of time something of the history of the steel clipper plow , that simple yet powerful implement that has done so much toward the rapid development of the rich prairies of the West ; and without which the great fields of cereals would not wave their gentle undulations to the prairie zephyrs , that now kiss their leaflets . Were we to build a monument to the progress of the West , we would lay the foundation with iron rails , mount them with a locomotive loaded with the various patterns of steel plows , and surmounted with a score of reapers and mowers ; but the noblest of them all—the steel clipper—the offspring of the prairies—we would honor with our ^ State coat of arms , painted in the gorgeous hues of a prairie sunset . When we commenced prairie farming in 1839 , only twenty-one years since the plows were made at the blacksmith shops throughout the country , the share was of German or A...

Strawberries . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

Strawberries . The question is often asked us how many bushels of strawberries can be grown on an acre . As we have never measured an acre to ascertain the number ef bushels produced , we form no estimate . We see it stated that from as high as three hundred bushels per acre have been gathered ; but we must confess that this looks rather large . We give a few instances : GREAT YIELD OF STRAWBERRIES . — At the meeting of the Fruit Growers Society , of Western New York , Mr . Glen stated that from one-tenth of an acre of Crimson Cone strawberry plants , he had gathered eleven hundred quarts of berries . This would be at the rate of nearl y three hundred bushels to the acre . At your request , made through the Ohio Farmer , I , for one , have kept account of the produce of my strawberry patch . The variety is a mixtaro of Burr s Seedling and Willey . The quantity of ground is a little over threefourteenths of an acre , or in other words , it is seventy-one feet one way , by eightythree...

Bust and Smut in Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

Bust and Smut in Wheat . M . L . DUNLAP—Dear Sir : It is well known that the wheat crop of Illinois , and of some other States ; have at times been much injured and cut off by the Must . For the benefit of our farmers , and to secure the protection of so important a crop , I send you a few lines on the subject . The Parasite Fungi , often individually invisible , taking root on , or in the plants , and feeding upon their juices . — The fungi are leafless plants of very simple structure , growing from little creeping fibres called mycelium or spawn . They are of various sizes and forms , and are propagated by extremely minute seeds called spores , or seeds—cither naked or in cases , called sporidiu or gods . Tho mushroom , toad-stool , and puff-ball , may serve as examples of the larger forms , and the fine dust with which tho latter is filled , may give an idea of the minuteness and diffusibility of the seeds of such plants . The moulds that grow on stale bread , cheese , and other ...

linen and Flux . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1860

linen and Flux . We notice in an exchange , that a perfectly successful method has been adopted for the preparation of flax fibre for the spindle , in the forin of flax cotton . A vast amount of thought and labor within the last ten or fifteen years has been expended in experimenting on this material with a view to adapt it to cotton manufacturing machinery ; and although several inventors claim to have been successful in this , no extensive manufacture has been established . That this process will yet be successfully accomplished , and flax fibre to a great extent take the place of cotton , which now has Buch a world-wide domand , we entertain not the shadow of a doubt . The demand for cotton is constantly increasing , and unless a substitute is found for it in some degree , the cotton growing regions of the United States will not be able to meet the demand . In view of these facts we know of no subject that presents a more encouraging field for study and invention than that of som...
