¦ The China Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

¦ The China Sugar Cane . We have a new . p lant under this name . It belongs to the broom corn specics , bears much analogy to the maize , and is similarly cultivated . The seeds were sent to France four years ago by the French consul at Shanghai , They were planted by distinguished gardeners , and the Canes ex- ° ° • .

Sangamon Pair—For the Fall of 1855 . ' [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Sangamon Pair—For the Fall of 1855 . The getting up of a county fair here , so soon after the state fair , was an enterprise of difficulty , and some fears were entertained of failure . But among our farmers there , is an abiding confidence in the principle of progress , as applied to their profession , and a willingness to unite in all proper measures to advance this progress . The Society have beautiful fair grounds , and the fixtures are convenient for exhibitions . The fair has now passed by for some months , and we can only speak of , it from recollection . The stock , of various descriptions , was fine .. If there was any thing lacking in this respect , we think it was in the exhibition of swine . We have but little of the Suffolk blood in the county , tho we have excellent breeds . There was a large variety of agricultural implements present , which seemed greatly to interest our farmers . There were many vegetables , but . they were not as numerous as they should have been ....

Immigration . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Immigration . An observing citizen of Illinois who was in New York a few weeks ago , and who became impressed with the fact , that real estate was decreasing in value in parts of the city and in towns around , —asked why this was so ? Trade appeared to * be good —commercial business was tolerably prosr perous-and many classes of mechanics had full employment . The answer was in substance— We need not attempt to conceal the fact—the cause of the fall of property is the emigration Of our people to the west . The facilities for reaching the various points in the west are so great , and the advantages which a new country offers to men of real enterprise , are takingonr people thither , rather faster than we are willing to spare them . They , however , when there , will create a market for us—they will want our wares and goods— -and we shall want the food they will be able to furnish us . And if they are our personal friends , they can go only about two or three days distance from us , a...

Grape Cnltnre . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Grape Cnltnre . When it is considered with what little trouble aud expense a farmer can provide for himself an abundant supply of the grape , and the acknowledged healthfuT ness of this fruit ; it is strange , indeed that so little attention is paid to its cultivation . Books upon the culture of the grape are numerous , and they abound With so many directions that to a novice they involve the subject in mystery . A man who knows how to raise corn , with a little exercise of practical sense , can raise grapes enough , for his own use . A piece of loamy ground , with a dry bottom , should be selected . It should be tolerably rich , and be dug as deep and be as well pulverized as it ought to be for a garden . Get sound cuttings of last 1 year s wood , say fifteen inches long , having three buds . Plant them in the ground in regular rows , fifteen feet apart , and ten feet between the rows . Lay the cuttings in the ground in an inclining position , so that the lower part will be eight i...

Vegetables . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Vegetables . To persons who grow vegetables for sale , it is important that they raise the best . — We saw in November last , potatoes sold in our market , by the wagon load , for 56 cents per bushel , —when inferior potatoes were sold at the same time at 35 cents . The difference grew out of the difference in the seed used . Central and Southern Illinois will not produce the best potatoes , unless the seed of the best varieties , is provided . We deem it all important that the seed be occasionally changed . The same facts exist in regard to the beet , turnip , carrot , parsnip and cabbage crops , where the same are designed for the table . There is an essential difference in the varieties of these vegetables . Many vegetables degenerate here if the same stock is long used for seed . Every man of observation has noticed how the blood beet and the early turnip beet , become large , stringy and coarse , if the same stock , is used for seed from year to year . , The same truth , though...

Premium Crops in Ohio . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Premium Crops in Ohio . The crop season of 1854 , was a very unfavorable one in Ohio , —the weather was dry , and the cro ps were generally short . — There were some cases , however , where good cultivation overcame all the difficulties of the season . We notice in Transactions of the Agricultural Society of Ohio , for 1854 , recently published , that premiums were given in the following cases : OATS — Franklin County . —Henry Ridenow raised on a field of six acres , an average of 60 bushels an acre .

Adulteration of Food . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Adulteration of Food . A year or so ago the British Parliament appointed a committee to investigate 1 the reported adulterations of food , which were sold in the British metropolis . Their : investigations resulted in the detection of the most astounding frauds in almost every thing that constitutes the food of man . — Flour was adulterated ; coffee and teas were adulterated ; ground spices , ginger and such condiments as pepper , mustard , and other articles of similar character , were mixed , with worthless ingredients , to a great extent . Wherever this adulteration could be done , without direct discovery , it was practiced . By these means , sellers could apparently , dispose of their articles at cheap rates , and persons were deceived into their purchase , and in adulterated mustard , ginger and spices , paid the highest rates for oatmeal 1 In teas , extravagant prices were paid for the leaves of the sloe and the hawthorn ; in ground coffee , for chickory , rooj and peas ; in ...

Blood Stock—What it is . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Blood Stock—What it is . Many farmers have most curious notions in regard to the meaning of the phrase Blood Stock . Many have an idea that it must be imported stock and held at a high price , because it has been . brought across the ocean . Bnt in England there is a wide distinction between what is called blood stock and the common stock of that country . — Certain breeders of stock have been extremely nice in regard to breeding . They have selected from the common herds of cattle the very best they could find , and have kept them apart from the common run of cattle , casting off all the inferior individuals that often show themselves in the best herds . - By pursuing this course for years in suc cession a race is produced superior to tho aommon run of cattle ; and at length this race becomes so perfect that you can place much reliance on the progeny . Different courses have been pursued by stock breeders in England ; but gradually the aim has been to produce large animals , and su...

Dairy Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1856

Dairy Stock . jLditor Illinois Farmer : —Some reflection lias ii duced me to come to the conclusion that our State Agricultural Society should do more than they have done to encourage the raising of dairy stock in this State . That Society has done much to exhibit the advantages of the best breeds of beef cattle ; but Utile attention , comparatively , has been paid to another and very important interest . The dairy business is sadly neglected by the farmers of Illinois . We have immense . fields of natural grass meadows , with an abundance of other food for milch cow . *; and high prices are paid for cheese and butter;—andyet we are supplied with poor cheese from the northern part of Ohio , and generally butter of country production , cannot be had here but at high prices . Little attention havins been given to the diiry , our milch stock is not of the best kind . No attempt has been made to raise a distinct stock for milking purposes;—and though , occasionally , a Durham cow may be...

Height of wall six feet . The roof 0 / the ice house should not be very near the ice , and hence I left all open up to the roof of the barn , and took the ice out at the top .
