THE PROSPECTS OF WESTERN FARMERS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

THE PROSPECTS OF WESTERN FARMERS . It is our delig ht to look forward a few years , anticipating what is to be ihe condition of the industrious farmers of the West . We love to reflect upon the inevitable results of well directed labor in agriculture upon the prairies . The farmers are to be the lords of tho land . At the East , the merchant , lawyer , doctor & c . fill the chief places ; hut here it is to be the farmer . Pie is to be the man of wealth , influence and independence—the gentleman . This is no enthusiastic speculation ; it is tho sober truth , easily demonstrated . We wish the farmers to feel it ; to take pride in their hig h calling ; and by the cultivation of their own minds and those of tlieir children , be prepared to sustain the ^ cl & racter of the entire West . If the West have any character worth posses-sing ten years hence , it will be of the farmers making ; and they should understand , thai ; whether it be good or bad , upon them will...

S .: Dear Sir—Your very polite and interesting evidence of a friendly feeling came to hand some time since ; though having remained in the office in Charleston , several days previous to its receipt , owing to my inattention to that office , and to the circumstance that I reside near the Bethsaida P . 0 ., a distance of nine miles from the former . Knowing that a reciprocity could not reach you before your Fair , where you might lay before our agricultural brethren of the North , our united Success attend your exertions , I have therefore deferred writing till now . We held our exhibition in October , when I was much gratified to see a lively interest manifested by many of our best farmers , in an association of so ennobling a nature ; it was contributed to as largely as could have been expected , considering the many difficulties with which such institutions have to cont...

ADDRESS OF DR . M . L . KNAPP , [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

ADDRESS OF DR . M . L . KNAPP , At the second annual Cattle Show and Fair of the Union Agricultural Society , at Aurora , Kane co . 19 tfi October , 1842 . Published b y request of hie Society . LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : It is my happy lot to . appear before you in answer to a request from the President of the Union Agricultural Society , to pronounce an address on this occasion . Gratifying to me as this unmerited distinction would have been , had I been personally acquainted with the president and members , I acknowledge it doubly so when known to them only through the columns of their organ , the Union Agriculturist . To have declined the honor under these circumstances , would have been doing violence to my feelings ; for I feel that the compliment is not of favoritism or personal preference , but a courtesy extended to one who has attempted , in a feeble manner , to advocate the objects for which this Society is constituted . And I wish it to be understood in advance , hoping ther...

CORN vs . RUTABAGAS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

CORN vs . RUTABAGAS . 11 r M . I .. DUM . AP . Editor of the Prairie Fanner : —In the November No . page 90 , vol . 2 , in a postscript , Mr . West , gives me a dig under the fifth rib for heterodoxy on the Rutabaga Question . The writer appears to take it ( or granted that I have raised but one crop of the article , and advises me to another trial . Now I have some conscientious scruples on this point . 1 st , I have cultivated them for several years in the Empire State , and there it was well understood that to be successful they should be sown on moist land ; and us far as my experience goes , they proved a failure in very dry seasons , and the roots of an inferior quality . 2 d , I have cultivated them for three years in this Prairie Land , one mile from timber . The year 1839 was wet . I had a very good crop ; fattened three cows , and fed them to my milch cows . The fattened cows gave a very large proportion of tallow ; the milch cows gave a good quantity of milk , but not equ...

CONGRATULATIONS AND VALUABLE SUGGESTIONS . BY OXE OF THE EDITORS OF THE ALBAXY CULTIVATOR . To JOHN S . WRIGHT ESQ : Respected Sir—In attending to the business part of your kind note of September at once , and leaving the remainder to be answered at another time , it was not the intention to protract so unreasonably the proposed reply : but the pressure of matters connected with our various Fairs has until the present time prevented that pleasure . It would certainly have given us great pleasure to have attended the meeting of your Society at Aurora with you , and there made the acquaintance of our many friends in that ; part of the United States , To us that portion of our Union is a terra incognita ; but we anticipate the time when it will cease to be so , and when we shall be able to take our western brethren by the hand , and have ocular demonstration of the immense strides which agriculture is making beyond the lakes . If there is one part of the United States destined , more t...

WINNEBAGO CO . CATTLE SHOW . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

WINNEBAGO CO . CATTLE SHOW . Held at Rockford , III ., Oct ., 18-12 . We regretted much our inability to insert the following report in the Dec . No . ; but it was not received till the 21 st Nov ., and the matter was then chiefly in type and one side struck off . Had it not been [ or the change in the width of our columns , some that was set would have been left for this No ., that our numerous subscribers to the last vol . residin - in that county mig ht have received it . But we trust they will all renew their subscriptions , and new ones be added to the large list . The Prairie Farmer , it is expected , will be made a receptacle for the proceedings in general of all western agricultural societies ; and lest some should think we favor Winnebago , by inserting the report of its exhibition entire , as furnished by ISAIAH LYONS Esq ., we will barely mention that we have more subscribers in that than any other county , and it is therefore only an act of justice to them .

THE WESTERN FARMER'S TEAM . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

THE WESTERN FARMERS TEAM . It is singular that our correspondents have so little to say relative to their teams , and their various modes of keeping them . Surely these are important subjects , from the discussion of which , and the comparison of each other s views , farmers would derive much practical information and benefit . Heretofore wc have suggested the value of oxen for ordinary work on the farm , and would once more draw the attention of our readers to the subject , and solicit from them an expression of their views concerning it . Wo know there is considerable prejudice against the use of oxen except for the heaviest kind of farm work ; and that it is reckoned only as the poor man s team , to be exchanged for the horse as soon as the farmer s means will permit . — This prejudice we think erroneous , and that the prosperity of the western farmer will be best promoted by a more gen eral use of oxen . Stock-raising is to be an extensive business with prairie farmers , and tho...

BOAR HUNTING . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

BOAR HUNTING . Ho ! ye chivalrous hunters in the wilds of America , prepare yourselves for sport such as Norman hunters never knew . Only to think , that wc should have had this unequalled field of sport amongst us so long , and should never have discovered it till an English editor points it out ! To be sure , ho says nothing about hunting ; but we suppose he took it for granted that the savages understood that part ; and enjoyed the sport in the good old-fashioned way , not with powder and ball , but with spear and knife . What a most delicious flavor must they have ! fed on acorns and maize that grow spontaneously in the woods ! We bespeak a ham from die large importation . Hercafler Westphalia hams will be forgotten by epicures , and the natives may make their fortunes b y furnishing the superior pork and hams of America to such wise editors . American Pork . —The Leeds Mercury , an English paper , says that private letters show the people of tho United States to be greatly plea...

SHELTERS FOR CATTLE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

SHELTERS FOR CATTLE . How many prairie farmers have neglected to provide their cattle with shelters from the storms of winter ! It is cruel ; and with very many , miserable economy . Those having straw , can more easily remove it out of their way by making it into shelters , than by any other means except burning . On the farm of Maj . DAVIS , near Oswego , we saw one fixed in this manner : two rows of posts were set about ten feet apart , and say 15 feet between the posts , the front ones being 9 or 10 feet in height , and the rear ones 6 or 7 , crotched in the top . Poles of sufficient strength were placed in the crotches , and across them rails were laid 6 or 8 inches apart . Against the rear , stakes or rails were set up , and straw piled up against them , and on the rails on top . A better or more economical shelter could not b e devised . Several farmers have cracked their jokes lately in their correspondence , at the folly of paying such high prices for blooded stock , and ha...

FARMERS' LYCEUMS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

FARMERS LYCEUMS . To the Editor of the Prairie Farmer . —A society was lately formed in this neighborhood having for its object the intellectual improvement of its members , and I have tho t a short account of its object , with a few remarks in relation to the benefits of such associations would not be inappropriate to the columns of the Union Agriculturist . The society is styled the Farmers Lyceum , and any person joining it is to pay to the treasurer the sum of fifty cents . The money thus raised is to be spent for agricultural and scientific journals for the use of the society . A larger initiation fee would have been required had not the excessive hard times made it . difficult to raise the necessary sum for gaining membership even at ; such low rates . Wc are poor , and wish by our association as far as possible to obviate the difficulties of a want of means to furnish ourselves individually the necessary information on those topics we seek to be instructed .

ZEAL IN PEORIA CO . Accompanying Mr . WEI . I . ES S article upon colic in horses , which is given on another page , was the following private note . It so clearly exhibits tho feelings of the farmers in that region with regard to the Prairio Farmer , that wo aro constrained to publish it . for the encouragement of societies and individuals in other sections of tho West .

MANAGEMENT OF SWINE-COOKING FOOD . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1843

MANAGEMENT OF SWINE-COOKING FOOD . In our first vol . considerable was said about cooking food for animals , particularly hogs ; and plans were given for steaming apparatus & c . Of late little has been said upon this subject . We know it is a very different business for a western farmer to fat his two or three hundred hogs , from what it is with an eastern one with his ten or twenty ; and some may scout the idea of cooking for such a multitude . But there is great economy in doing it , and saving expense is as important to the prairie farmer as any oilier . Wc have never heard of one who had practiced cooking for his animals , cither by steaming or boiling , who did not commend it for the economy ; and the testimony being so conclusive , and there being no counter evidence , it appears to us farmers should regard it . They want something besides a teakettle , and in our next No . wc intend to give them a plan of a first rate furnace , copied from the Farmers Cabinet . I...
