AGAINST CONFINING STOCK . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

AGAINST CONFINING STOCK . BY F . WEST . IT will be recollected by the readers of the Prairie Farmer , tliat . in the August No . Solon Robinson pressingly invited any one opposed to the non-enclosure system , to discuss the subject with him , through the columns of that paper . In the succeeding No . I suggested , that as the advocates of die proposed plan differed among themselves in their views , if he would reduce the subject to a tangible form , I would accept his invitation . After a delay of three months , . We again hear from him . He then candidly admits , that those settled about the groves , which comprise nearly all the rural population of the State , would be injured by it , aire ! rests the issue on the benefits that would result to the poor , in the progress of the settlement of the great prairies . I will here joirfissue with my friend Solon , God bless him in his basket and in his store , reserving the rig ht to prove that , the damage would be immense , and in estim...

m * x 5 &amp;lt; - ^ lC = ° - SUGAR FROM CORN STALKS . MY J . T . GIFFOUD . To the Editor of the Prairie Farmer . I suppose some of the readers of the Prairie Farmer have been looking for something from me on the subject at the head of diis article . That I have regarded it with a good deal of interest for some time I admit ; and being aware that many inquiring minds were interested in tho same matter , I have been convinced that sufficient experiments would be made in the usual method of expressing by force the juice from the green stalk , to give it a fair test . I have therefore deferred makin &amp;lt;* any operations in that way , and . have devoted my observations and experiments to the macerating system , and operating upon the cured stalk . I commenced in July—severed the ears from a few stalks , in order to let all the saccharine that would , accumulate in them . A small piece of corn , sown thickly in drills , I left to take its own course after hoeing , until die c...

SPAING WHEAT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

SPAING WHEAT . BY M . J .. DUNLAP . To the Editor of die Prairie Farmer . I see but little said in the Prairie Farmer on the subject of spring wheat . This is wrong , as rt is cultivated to considerable extent in the northern part of this State and Wisconsin . Almost every neighborhood cultivates a different variety ; perhaps the part of the country from which they migrated was well adapted to the kinds which they brought with them , and which in most cases they continue to cultivate . But allowance should be made for difference in climate and soil ; and the only way to test this is by actual experiment There is a vast difference in the samples brought to market , and one of two things is certain—bad cultivation or bad variety of seed ; let us ascertain where the fault is and then set about repairing the evil . In 1840 I lost two acres of the Egyptian or many-headed wheat , which is said to be a very prolific variety , by the rust . It was so badly rusted that I was not able to get ...

APATHY CF MANY FARMERS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

APATHY CF MANY FARMERS . Though the great advance of agricultural improvement the past few ye arsf attests a general awakening to its importance , there are still some farmers to whom the following remarks apply ; We trust their numbers , especially here in the West , will rapidl y diminish ; and through the persevering exertions of those who are engaged in the good work , like J . E . STARR Esq . of Alton , the author of tho letter from which we extract , nearl y all will bp brought to aid it . We supposed a society was already organized in Madison co . There surely should be one . I Nothing astonishes me moio than the apathy existing anlong the farmers upon matters touching their own interests . Let them but hdar that some nevr plan has been devised to tax their produce , and they will immediately arouse themselves ; for you then touch them in that tenderest of places—their pockets : but they will not be aroused by all that can be done or said , as to the enormous tax they volunta...

THE NON-ENCLOSURE SYSTEM . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

THE NON-ENCLOSURE SYSTEM . Anoilier champion forlhcoitring , BY SOLON rtOIUNSON , In a recefit letter from A . B . Allen , editor of the American Agriculturist , N . Y . he says : I intend to take up tho subject of prairie fences soon . I go against fencing the prairies in lots—it is the greatest folly conceivable . Dogs , taught for the purpose , can and do effectually guard cattle and sheep ; arid even hogs in Europe are completely under their control . The Only fear in adopting the plan here , is , that there are too many lawless people in our riew coun &amp;lt; tries , whom it would be harder to bring under discipline and subjection than the cattle , on introducing so beneficial a measure—still I will give one or two short articles soon . Fencing of any kind is a needless and useless expense , and a most onerous and enormous tax upon the industry ; of the country , and no doubt is the great stumbling block that de * ters thousands of poor men , who would make the best of cit...

SIX REASONS FOR PLANTING AN ORCHARD . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

SIX REASONS FOR PLANTING AN ORCHARD . BY F . DSON HAB . KNESS ; , 1 st . Would you leave an inheritance to your children ? —plant an orchard . No other investment of money and labor will , in the long run , pay so well . , 2 d . Would you make home pleasant—the abode of the social . virtues ? plant an orchard . Nothing better promotes among neig hbors a feeling of kindess and good will , than a treat of good fruit , often repeated . 3 d . Would you remove from your children the strongest temptation to steal ? plant an orchard . If children cannot obtain fruit at home , they are very apt to steal it ; arid when they have learned to steal fruit , they are in a fair way of learning to steal horses . home of their youth as a sacred spot—an oasis in the great wilderness of the world ? then plant an orchard . Cth . In short , if you wish to avail yourself of the blessings of a bountiful Providence , which are within your reach , you must plant an orchard . And when you do it , see that yo...

THE DEVON BREED OF CATTLE . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

THE DEVON BREED OF CATTLE . The Devon Bull . ( Fig . 4 . ); The following description of Devon cattle is copied from Youatt , the immaterial parts being omitted . It is too long for one No ., but we thought it . desirable the description should be full and connected . It appears to us the Devons are better adapted to the prairies thati any other breed . — Many farmers in the West have been accustomed to their use at the East , and we should like to receive from some of them their views for publication . The engravings were the first Mr . CHIIDS executed for us , arid being : oh type metal , they are not as well finished as his later ones . They are very correct copies , however , with the exception that the ox is a little too much sicklehamed , and his legs rather slender . The more perfect specimens of the North Devon breed are thus distinguished . The horn of the hull ought to be neither too low nor too high , tapering at the points , not too thick at the root , and of a yellow or...

THE POLAR PLANT , OR ROSIN WEED . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

THE POLAR PLANT , OR ROSIN WEED . BY STILES 3 . CARPESTER . To the Editor of the Prairie Farmer . I have noticed considerable in several newspapers of the day about a new discovery of a polar plant , or prairie compass . The celebrated plant is no more nor less than the rosin weed of our prairies ; a discovery that any person will make if he travels much in the West . The farmers , or a majority of us , claim not to understand the botanical terms of plants , and it would have been of more use to us if that definition had been put to the name of the plant in room of the botanical . Indian Prairie , Van Buren co ., Iowa , Oct . 17 , 1842 . By reference to Mr . GJFFOED S review of the Cabinet , it will be found there is another polar plant besides the rosin weed .

A SCHOOL FOR MECHANICS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 February 1843

A SCHOOL FOR MECHANICS . MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT . JOHN GAGE , Editor . From the great and rapid strides that have been made in mechanics , during the presenfage , it is strange so little has been done to educate men thoroughly for the business . — Colleges have been founded amd funded in all parts of die country , to educate lawyers , physicians and priests , whilst very little attention has been paid to the education of mechanics . A professor of the former class stands but a : small chance of becoming eminent , unless he is well &amp;lt; edsacated ; and the high standing attained by the professions is mostly to be attributed to their superior education as a class . The physical necessity and usefulness of labor in a Mechanics School . Our colleges are not adapted to the education of a mechanic : he learns no trade in them , and in a measure physically disqualifies himself for labor afterwards . 1 believe the fact to be too well established to require argument , that if a man is...
