ESTERLY'S HARVESTER—APOLOGETIC . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

ESTERLYS HARVESTER—APOLOGETIC . \ For the Prairie Farmer . BY GEO . EGTEIII . V . MESSRS . EDITORS : I notice in the October number of the Prairie Farmer a call for information in relation to my Harvesting Machine , and believe I owe you and your readers an apology for not sooner giving the reason , through your paper , why my machine was not exhibited at the various places in your State as agreed . I had my machines built in Milwatikie , and they were to have been done the first of June , so as to give me sufficient time lo get them to the different places in your State as agreed , in season for the , harvest . But instead of being done the first of June , I did n t get the first one till the 25 tb of July , which was altogether too late to think of going south . And as I had them a little differently constructed from what they were last year , I did not know how they would work till I had tried them . On trial I found that in some respects they worked better , and in others not so...

THE WHEAT MILLER—AND OTHER MATTERS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

THE WHEAT MILLER—AND OTHER MATTERS . [ For the Prairie Farmer . nr . r . si Ht / un . MKSSRS . EDITORS : Enclosed 1 sei d you a specimen of the miller , a new enemy to wheat . It commenced here the past summer , and has worked so rapidly lhat many have taken 1 heir wheat to market sooner than they would otherwise have done . I first discovered ihem in some old wheal about ihe Inst of August . They make a web , by which they bind together some 20 grains of wheat , and lay an egg in the center resembling the cocoon ol the silk worm , which hatches a worm ; ( probably the young miller in the larva slate : ) eiiher the miller or the worm eats out ihe chit or bean ofthe grain . I have tried quicklime sifted on thick , but it had no effect . Please give us the name ofthe creature , anil tell us how to guard again *! , n . I am sorry to learn th : it friend Russell put so much grease with his sulphur as to injure his trees ; one of my neighbors has done me same thing , and lost at least on...

LOCUST TIMBER . DEVONS- AND JACKS . [ For the Prairie Farmer . nv JAMES M COSNELL . MKSSRS . EDITORS : In a late number of your paper you mention an acquaintance of yours near Cjumey who lias succeed * d well in cuhivaiing loi-u .-t : will you please call on him and odters for their experience—their 11 . ode of sowing the seed—whether they sow where ihey intend ihe trees to stand , or first in uursefy and afterwards transplant .

FORCING VEGETABLES BY GALVANISM . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

FORCING VEGETABLES BY GALVANISM . Under this title , we published , early in the year , an article giving an account ofthe wonders said to re wrought in vegetation by the use of the galvanic current produced by connecting copper and zinc plates . The article was considerably copied , and several experiments were put in operation under its directions . What is the result ? We will briefly state our experience , which we believe to be substantially that of all the rest , so far as we can learn . A copper plate . fourteen inches by four and a half feet was buried , edge up , at one end of our garden , and a similar one of zinc at ihe other—the two being connected by a copper wire supported on stakes about six feet high . Between the plates were peas , cabbages , beets , carrots , pinks , tomatoes , potatoes , and parsnips ; all of which we expected pretty certainly to see leaping up in the most precocious manner . To be sure lhat ihe plates would grind out the lightning in the most app...

BOTS IN HORSES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

BOTS IN HORSES . VETERINARY DEPARTMENT . [ From the Boston Cultivator . MESSRS . EDITORS : To Mr . Maddocks s inquiry , Are bots injurious to the health ofthe horse ? I would ask , Is he a family man , and has he children ? If he has , let . him inquire of his wife whether she believes the worms in children are injurious to their health . I guess if we were oftener to take counsel of our wives , we should seldom go wrong , for I can say with the old fanner of whom mention is made , Nine times out often my wife is right . Did Mr . Maddocks ever observe that a sickly horse will be found with a hundred times as many eggs of the mslrus er / ui upon him as a healthy one ? You see by this question that I am a believer in the new doctrine , that blight in trees and plants is the effect of sickness , oftentimes mistaken lor the cause ; and from analogy , I am inclined to consider the hot . in the horse as the effect of disease in the stomach . I grant , the fly will sometimes deposit her eg...

! A GOOD INVENTION . Mr . Earnest Mars , cabinet 111 aI Iter , of New York , has invented a mode of propelling the fire engine , by which it can be worked by a less number of men and with much greater ease than by the brake , the . present mode . By means of a screw , turned in a moment by a crank attached , the machine is lifted from the ground when required to be set in operation , and the hind wheels made to serve as fly wheels . With ihe aid of a rope attached to the fly wheels , the machine can be worked by eight men or two hundred , so that any persons at the fire , disposed to lend a hand , have only to lay hold of the rope and assist to give motion to the fly wheels . —Selected . —1 ,-t- ^ -a- — - There are 360 , 000 seeds in the capsules of a tobacco plant

SUNDRY MATTERS FOll THE SEASON . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

SUNDRY MATTERS FOll THE SEASON . If we are to judge from indications already exhibited , we may calculate on a pretty severe winter . Casting aside all that philosophy wh ch is drawn from the nonswarming of bees and the thick coats of onions—we have enjoyed two exceedingly mild winters in succession , and we may reasonably conclude lhat it is time to apprehend more severe season ? . There is also a peculiar clearness and dryness in the atmosphere now and for some time past , which indicates continued and relentless cold . Still , as we have prophesied cold winters for two seasons past falsely , we will not be too sanguine now . But however the matter may turn out , it becomes every careful farmer to make good provision for cold weather ; and though the season should prove milder ihan his fears may indicate , it is no small recompense to feel sure that one is prepared for the worst ; and that though cold and storm should come in their severest measures , he is piepared for them .

G . tASSES IN ROTATION-INQUIRY . [ For the Prairie Farmer . BY ISAAC JULIAN . MESSRS . EDT ORS : I have been considerabl y interested with several systems of rotation which have lately appeared in your paper ; but I regret , that some ofthe writers did not inform us which ofthe various grasses they consider best to alternate with oilier crops . 1 shall be much obliged to you if you will give us the opinion of the amboriiies on tin s subject . I wish panicul .. rly 10 know whether the plan of mixing clover and limoth y be orthodox or not . Wayiic co . hid . October , 1845 . P . S . The depth at which farmers plow in this county is , on an average , about three inches . Many are beginning to plow deeper in ihe hope of resuscitating their wornout lands . The kinds of grasses hitherto cultivated as standards and whose seeds are kept for sale are so lew that there is hardly a chance for mistake , or even for choice . The clovers stand at the head of them , of which the red is principally...

CHICAGO MARKET . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 December 1845

CHICAGO MARKET . and although the roads have been much of ihe time good , the quantity received is not large—ranging only from two to five thousand bushels daily . This is somewhat surprising while the fact is considered that a large proportion of the wheat is yet unmarketed . We should now consider it a safe time lo sell while the roads are good and lime less valuable than it will be in the spring . Pork brings readily 3 i to 3 ? per hundred ; yet the quantity arriving is quite small , and a proportion of that is again carried out to supply the wants of the canal . The quality is very fine indeed . Beef is now bringing 2 | to 2 & per 100 . The high price of wheat is slowly affecting the prices of coarse grains , and a perceptible increase is already the result . Oats arc now quoted at 25 cents , and corn shelled at 33 cents , ( in the ear 26 . ) The trade in horses appears to be pretty much closed for the season . THE RETAIL MARKET . The cost of living is very perceptib...
