C . says in Edgar county . Tt is extra large , globe shaped , darkly red striped on a ground of greenish white . The flesh is somewhat coarse and light in texture and neither sweet nor sour—quite fragrant . The Edgar Stripe .

OUR NEXT VOLUME . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

OUR NEXT VOLUME . We shall commence the next volume ofthe Prairie Farmer with better anticipations than we have ever before done . This we think we may reasonably do when we reflect that good seasons and an exuberant crop have given farmers ability to pay , greatly above what they have for years enjoyed . In addition to that , our success during the past year has been of a highly gratifying character . The Prairie Farmer has become known , and is now circulated over a very wide extent of ternary , where we are pleas-, ed to know that it is generally acceptable ; and our experience thus far is , that we have onl y to make it known , to obtain for it support . With the next volume we shall enlarge the paper to 32 pages , but in doing this it will be necessary to lessen somewhat the size of the page . It was not our intention to have made any alteration in the page , for we are better suited with it as it is than with any other ; but wo are forced to do so from two considerations . One...

TERMS OF THE NEXT VOLUME . Durin ? the pusi year we have hud the mortification to noiice thai our lerms , as given at the beginning of the volume , were frequently misapprehended—sometimes in one way , and . sometimes in another .

ARRANGEMENT OF BUILDINGS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

ARRANGEMENT OF BUILDINGS . Nothing conduces so much to saving and comfort on the farm as a proper and convenient arrangement of its buildings . With a view of saving labor , nothing is more worthy ofthe study of the farmer engaged in ereciing the different structures designed for the use ofthe habitants ol the farm . An easy computation will show the immense saving of steps consequent on a little difference in the relative location ofout-buildings . Of course no general plan can be laid down which will suit all circumstances , any more than in the case of a dwelling house . But such aid can he afforded by the inspection of different plans as will be of important use in so locating buildings as that they will be easy and convenient of accefs . The cut appended was drawn b y J . J . Thomas Esq . of Macedon , N . Y ., and was ori ginally published in the Albany Cultivator . The position ofthe barn-yard and the arrangement of the various buildings about it are what we wished to invite a...

MR . HARDIJPS COMMENTS . [ For the Prairie Farmer . BY JOHN W 1 UGHT . MESSRS . EDITORS : T see a communication in the July number headed A Few Comments and footed Mr . Hardup . He , ( Mr . H ) after quoting a part of my article in the May number on plowing , says -Now I call this decidedly bad farming . But from his own , words the man dont actually know what it is . . He construes . plowing back into shallow plowing . No \ v to convince him by words ofthe objects , the benefits , or the necessity of plowing back , would be all vanity—he must see the act ; and if he sees fit to step over to Iowa I will show him ; if not , he may stay where he is and find out the difference between back and shallow plowing by his experience . Had Mr . Hardup come out in the mailer as the reviewer did on the wagon wheel , he would have been attended to with all cheerfulness ; but as he with a flourish condemns without cause or a hearing , I shall leave him and his comments where I found them—woolly c...

CHEROKEE ROSE—OSAGE ORANGE , [ For the Prairie Farmer BY PROF . J . B . TURNER . MESSRS . EDITORS : An article in a recent number of your periodical , from the pen of Cel . McDonald of Alaba ma attracted my attention to the great importance of the topics therein discussed , not only to the agricultural but to the social and educational interests of our beloved State . And as an entire stranger among us was so sagacious as at once to detect and perceive one of our greatest wants , and so generously interested in us as to lake up his pen to make suggestions for our relief , I had the boldness to address him a letter soliciting both his aid and his advice still further in this important matter . I have just received from him the following reply , which as it contains information valuable to your readers , and as it may also be gratifying to-the numerous personal friends of the Col . to hear from him and of his continued interest in us , I now copy and forward for your paper .

Or let it lie and dry in the swath two or three days before it is bound . , , , , • ¦ , <• I would ask you , Messrs .

Give them salt and plenty of corn , and you will have fat hogs . Grub your sassafra...

POPLAR PEACH . APPLES IN MARQUETTE CO . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

POPLAR PEACH . APPLES IN MARQUETTE CO . F Fur the Prairie Farmer . EY E . CARPKNTlnt . MESSRS . EDITORS : We have a kind of peach here called the poplar peach , so named from the close resemblance of the tree to the Lombardy poplar—on a small scale , of course ; pretty good bearers , fruit medium size , freestone , and good . As near as I can find out , tin s peach came from Kentucky , as well as most of our other fruit . We . have-some very fine kinds of peaches—better than I ever saw at . my former home , which was about 28 miles from the city of New York . If this peach is not generall y known among you , and you have a desire to plant a few in the yard by way of curiosity , the next bearing year I will save you some ofthe pits . Most of the kinds of apples here I think were originally from Pennsylvania ; but as the trees are small , I cannot judge of the quality of the apples ; the names too of most of ihem are new to me . There is a scarcity of good cherry , plum , and pear tre...

THE TEACHER'S SCHEDULE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

THE TEACHERS SCHEDULE . tl ^ O— [ For the Prairie Fanner IIY GEO . CHURCHILL . MESSRS . EDITORS : The school law of 1841 , as first prepared and reported to the senate by the commitee on education , contemplated the distribution ofthe school moneys according to the plan adopted in 1833 , lo wit : in proportion to the number of scholars and the time of their at- tendance at school . But in its progress through the senate , tin- principle of the bill was changed without making ihe corresponding change in tl e form of the schedule and certificates . Consequently , unless the teachers would do more than the law required of them , and state in their schedules what school district his scholars resided in , h was impossible for the trustees lo distribute the school moneys among the several school districts of their township , according to law . This difficulty was seen and felt for four years ; and it is astonishing lhat a IKW school law could have passed ihe legislature without containing...

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT . [ For the Prairie Farmer . TO THE OLDEST SCHOLARS IN OUR WINTER SCHOOLS . It is nearly time for winter schools to commence , and as all are not alike profitable—some proving a losing speculation to all concerned—it has occurred lo me that a few suggestions concerning one of the common causes of loss , would not be unseasonable . And first , of the government of schools . We know that the quality of mercy must form a component part of discipline at the present day . An awakening public feeling calls upon Ihe instructor to seek a loftier stimulus , in developing the youthful mind , than fear of the ferule . In fact , it is the general impression that if the winter school is controlled m a gentlemanly way , it is much better for all parties . Now , there is an obstacle in the way of such management , which might he obviated by a little rig ht , feeling and reflection in those interested . I allude to a heedlessness and disregard of school laws , quite too preva...

THE SCHOOL LAW . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

THE SCHOOL LAW . [ For the Prairie Farmer . MKSSRS . EDITORS : The great interest you have generally manifested in regard lo the subject of common school education , is my apology for ihe present letter . But before saying one word on the subject of this communication , permit me to bear witness to ihe faithful manner in which you discharged the duties assigned you in memorializing the State legislature . The presentation ufthai rpeiiionafconstitiued an era in the history of legislation on the subject of common schools . And the new law in many of its provisions is decidedly superior lo the old . But it is unfortunate that many ofiho greatest evils under which we labor are beyond the roach of legislation . And it seems almost impti .- > ihle to procure any thing like uniformity in carrying out the spirit , of its provisions . For example : the section making provision for the support , of schools by taxation has in my iicariii been the subject , of the severest animadvers...

EDITORS : I find in the October number of the Farmer a no ice of chinch hugs in Knox county , and a request that some friend there would send you a sample of them .

They first were fiuind here abcut the middle of dune , and could be found in any wheat field by ju .-t removing a little ennh from the roots of the wheat , whete ihey commenced their depredations .

GRASS CULTURE-INFORMATION WANTED . [ For the Prairie Farmer . BV JOHS SHILLABER . MFSSRS . EDITORS : Your remarks in your October number , under the heading Wool-growing at the West brin « s to my memory the intention entertained for some time of requesting space in your paper for the following communication , with a view to obtaining information upon a subject admitted to be of the utmost importance to this northern part of Illinois and the Territory adjoining . I approve of the spirit of your warning to those who would keep sheep here—and it is well to be on the safe side—yet my experience has shown lhat grass has sprung in May adequate to keep ing well my ewes and lambs , and that there is good feed on the prairies for four to five months .

POTATO ROT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

POTATO ROT . [ For the Prairie Farmer BY S . POWERS . MKSSRS . EDITORS : Being in conversation with Mr . Wm . Morningsli . r of this place , to-day , on the subject of the potato rot , he stated that on examining potatoes this fall , he had discovered by paring them very carefully , various punctures made by an insect , and at the bottom a deposit resembling an egg ; and that on pressing the same they ¦ would crack like the eggs of insects : which fact in his opinion accounted for the rot . I was induced by these statements to make an examination in order to satisfy myself ; accordingly I dug several potatoes , which appeared sound , and on peeling them they proved as he bad represented . The punctures vary from a sixteenth to a half inch in depth . I noticed one which had two eggs deposited at the bottom . Around these punctures the potato had commenced rotting , in every case—appearing of a yellowish color , while the rest was apparently sound . These facts satisfied me that the p...
