Sueeession of Forest Trees , and Germination of Seeds long kept in the Earth . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Sueeession of Forest Trees , and Germination of Seeds long kept in the Earth . Whether the soil retains seeds through a long series of years , or has the latent power of creating them , or whether they arc scattered in fitting localities at fitting times by certain mysterious agencies , are questions too nice for us to decide . We do not recollect of having ever seen any satisfactory solution of the question where the seeds come from , yet from almost every day s observation we are forced to ask ourselves the question , and we can get no nearer an answer than the three preceding hypotheses . In regard to these three we are compelled to acknowledge they are only the positions we are forced into for want of better , or at least more secure . In the course of our agricultural observa- tions and experience , we have noticed that on certain soils , where a heavy growth of hard pine had been cleared off , the succeeding growth is white pine ; in swamps where the growth was hemlock and spr...

Forwarding Cucumber and other Tines . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Forwarding Cucumber and other Tines . A correspondent of the Germantown Tele graph , says that cucumbers may be for warded some weeks , simply by planting them in the open soil , placing around them , when up , four bricks laid flat-ways , and laying over them a pane of glass . The glass may be removed during the day , and replaced at night . The bricks will retain a portion of the heat absorbed during the daytime , and this , acting in favorable conjunctionwith the exclusion of the night air . will tend powerfully to accelerate the / development , and produce a vigorous action of the system through it . Melons , squashes , aud other vines of a similar description may be advanced by the same very simple and econo- mic « l process . Broken glass from the shops , which-will cost nothing , or at most , a mere trifle , will answer for this purpose as well as new , and will last for years . Watering frequently and copiously if the weather be dry , with soap suds , or diluted urine , as a...

Working Girls . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Working Girls . Happy girls ! who . cannot love them ? With cheeks like roses , bright eyes and elastic step , how cheerfully they go to work . Our reputation for it , such girls will make excellent wives . Blessed , indeed , will those men be who secures snch prizes . C utrast those who do nothing but sigh all day , and live to follow the fashions ; who never earn the bread they eat nor what they wear , who are languid and lazy from one week s end to another . Who bnt a simpleton and a popinjay would prefer one of the latter , if he were looking for a companion ? Give us the working girls . They are worth their weight in gold . You never see them mincing along , or jumping a dozen feet to steer clear of a spider or fly , they have no affectation or silly airs about them . When they meet yon , they speak without putting on a dozen siliy airs , or trying to show off to a better advantage , and you feel as if you were talking-to a human being , and not to a painted or fallen angel .

COMMUNICATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

COMMUNICATIONS Central Illinois Agricultural Society . EnrroR ILLIHOIS FARMER : I see that the South have started a project of organizing a Southern Illinois Agricultural Society . . I am not sure but the plan is a good one ; and that it may be extended so as to establish the Central Illinois Agricultural Society . A , good nucleus for such a society might be formed by Morgan and Sangamon counties . These two counties have every material , in good farmers , good stock , good mechanics , good dairies , women who can execute all the work of their special departments , such as needlework , erotchet work , painting , & c . & c , to make good exhibitions—of which they may be proud . They have also their fair grounds , eligibly situated , and conveniences near at hand for the accommodation of all who may attend their _ fairs . The fairs could be alternatel y held in these counties : They have railroad facilities , also , and these are being increased , and all the ...

Sowing Onion Seed . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Sowing Onion Seed . MESSRS . EDITORS : It is absolutely essential , in order to make onion seed germinate in dry weather , that the earth should be made compact abon it . where it is sown . I have sowu a good deal of onion seed this spring , aud it has come np well . It was sown in drills , and after it was covered I tread down the earth , so as to make it hard . I always consider it necessary to do this , and especially when the ground is dry to do it well .- A cowf got into my grounds and went tip and down ihy onion patch , and wherever she put her feet on to the rows and tread down th 6 earth , there the onions have come up better than anywhere else . The wet weather will be likely to bring up the onions ; which , otherwise , might have entirely failed . It will answer to sow onion seed some weeks longer . If it is afavorable season , it will make some large Onions , and , at : any rate , it will make good onion sets for -the next spring . B— ¦ <— -a .

NeW Farms . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

NeW Farms . JEMTOK FARMER : A New Corner wishes to know if he can have a good garden and set an orchard on his new land this spring . I answer that he can , with a fair prospect of . success . If he can plow his land eight inches deep as he states , he need not hesitate to sow oats or plant corn , potatoes or any kind of garden vegetables after thoroughly harrowing the ground . Peas , beans and all the varieties of the squash aud melon tribe grow exceedingly well on our prairie . sod without any cultivation but planting , w . hich can be done with an axe , in the same manner that corn is usually planted . But he had better not be in a harry about making a permanent garden ; wait until next fall or until he has a good stock of manure on hand , spread it six inches thick on the ground , then spade two feet deep and mix soil , . subsoil and manure all together , and then he can calculate with as much certainty on his : erops as the breeder of his blooded stock ican on the quality of hh...

The Purple Wart in . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

The Purple Wart in . LDITOR OF THE FARMER : Will you indulge me in giving some short notices of this favorite bird—well kuown to every man , woman and child among us ? He comes to us in early spring , and extends his migrations to the distant shores of Hudson s Bay , perhaps even farther north . On the return of cold weather he leaves his abode—suddenly his music ceases—and he is away to a more congenial clime . The martin seems half domesticated . He is fond of fixing upon a home near the abodes of man . Anticipating his wants and his coming , we often prepare little houses for his accommodation . They are seen about on the tops of poles , ou sign posts and ou dwellings . In the south , even among the Indians of some tribes , care is taken to secure his companionship in the spring and summer season , The negroes on the Misissippi stick up long canes , with gourds on the top of them , with an opening lor the entrance of the martins . The Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians used to be in t...

MISCEILOEDUS ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

MISCEILOEDUS ITEMS TREATMENT OP HENS . —T WO flocks compared . The one laid eggs utmost all tile time . The other laid scarcely any . On examining their treatment , the following differences were found to exi » J : The former had a warm cellar to roost in , during the winter . The latter roasted in a stable where the snow blew in . The former had a fine place in an open cellar , for scratching among ashes , lime and earth The latter scratched in the manure heap , or in the stable when the cows were out . The former had plenty of various kinds ef food twice a day . The latter were sparingly feci once a day . The former had plenty of good water , with milk , & c . lhe other had no drink except what they could find . It can be seen , we think , why one flock laid eggs generously , and the other didnt .

EDITORIAL NOTICES . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

EDITORIAL NOTICES . The last month has been a busy time with our farmers . The lateness of the Spring season , threw an unusual amount of . work into May . Much spring grain had to be sown—wheat , oats , barley—some flax , rye , and then the preparation of ground for the corn crop had to be made . Farmers had no time to waste—and they pitched into the work with right hearty good will . The drought was favorable so far as to put the lands in order for plowing , though it killed some fields of wheat . Seasonable rains came in the middle of the month ; the corn was well planned , and everything promises now for a fair , crop—provided the after tillage is what it should be . Potatoes can yet be planted for the main crop . Prepare the ground well ; and plant a good variety . Whatever kind you do plant , let the seed be unmixed . The price of lots of potatoes is greatly injured by the mixture of different kinds . The seed should be often changed . Good potatoes are always in . demand—and ...

Hops . r [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1856

Hops . r In many parts of tho country the hop plant grows wild , and the hops if gathered from them in season and cured in a proper manner , are excellent . There is always a demand for them , and they are sold at high prices . It is a difficult thing for private families to obtain them at this time ; and when they are to be had high prices must be paid for them . What we want to say in this connection is—that when gathered by children just before frosts , dried in the shade , say in some loft or chamber , and when well dried , put into sacks—the labor in procuring and saving them would be well paid for . We suggest that our young friends in the country attend to this matter . With the money they could thus procure , they could supply themselves well with books for the coming winter .

Facts and Speculations on Rice . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1856

Facts and Speculations on Rice . There are said to be about nine hundred millions of human beings on the earth , and of these four to five hundred millions use rice as their chief article of subsistence , — not as a diluent to other and stronger food , but as the all dependent necessity of their life . Rice is said to be largely absorbed into the system as a nutriment , and forming little refuse matter in the bowels , has been considered constipating , but without evil results , we think . Like most farinacea , it gives lightness to the sensations and clearness to the faculties , if not breadth and strength , which We think belong more to animal food . It is thought that the Foxs , Pitts and Websters of the world are great ter animal food consumers ,, living strongly while they do live , and dying somewhat earlier in consequence . This is the prevailing opinion , and we think there is some truth in H ., . The Hindoos , say one hundred and fifty millions in number , are a superior pe...
