Reclaiming Bushy Land . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

Reclaiming Bushy Land . , Sheephave been put to a good purpose in Massachusetts , in destroying bushes and weeds in pastures . These sometimes take such possession of the ground as to render it nearl y worthless . Why cannot they be used here to destroy the hazel bush , blackberry , wild rose , and other wild shrubs ? • Mr . R , S . Fay , of Lynn , Mass ., gives his experience on this subject . He had a large tract of land between Cape Ann and Cape God . It was covered with brambles and other shrubs . — Except in a few wet spots these shrubs covered the whole tract . A cow would have starved on the wholef two hundred acres . Sheep were put upon this land as an experiment , in reference to killing the bushes . It was soon seen that they would do the work . To aid them , some of the larger briars and shrubs were cut down . The young sprouts were nipped as soon as they started ; and each renewed effort of the plant to maintain itself was in like manner instantly checked , till its vita...

Mice . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

Mice . Last winter the mice were very destructive to fruit trees . More than half of some orchards were destroyed . The fall and winter , was dry . They made their nests about the trees , and after eating the seeds about their beds , which were deep under the snow they had recourse for subsistence to the bark of the trees , and when , that failed to the roots . The prospect is that winter will come in upon us , with the ground , dry , and with dry grass , and trash about the roots of our apple trees , furnishing just the places the mouse seeks for his winter quarters . If the winter be . severe , and snow deep , woe to your trees under , snch circumstances ! What is to be done ? How are the trees to be protected from the ravages of mice ? Will it answer a good purpose to clean the grass away , about them , smear the bodies and about the . roots with tar , assafoetida , coal tar or any other nauseous article?—Coal tar about the , roots of peach trees , it is said , will protect them ...

The Chinese Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

The Chinese Sugar Cane . We have some additional evidences of the value of this plant . Richard Peters , of Atlanta , Ga ., contributed at the late Fair of the National Agricultural Society at Philadelphia , specimens of the Chinese Sugar Cane and seine ef the syrup made of it . He raised a quantity of the plants the last season , crushed the juice from them between vertical iron rollers , sufficient in quantity to make eight gallons of superior syrup every hour . He says that the yield of the plant is very great-Mihe juice is easily expressed—and he is of opinion that the cost of the syrup in Uppe r Georgia will not exceed ten or fifteen cent & jper gallon . He anticipates that the Southern States can make their own sugar and syrup from this cane , and even produce these articles for exportation . Mr . Peters intends to , plant fifty acres of this cane the ensuing season . The New York Herald has an article on the same subject , by which it appears that the Chinese Suga...

finalities of Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

finalities of Cattle . The London Farmers Magazine for October contains a letter from Wm . H . Sotham , of Owego , N . Y „ on the qualities of the Hereford and Short horn cattle , in which be writes with his usual severity not only against the latter breed • but against their advocates also . His object , he says , is to stir up a fair and liberal discission among English breeders as to which breed will pay the most money for the food they consume , in order to put that breed first that justly deserve it . He enumerates the qualities of cattle as follows : There are three distinct qualities in all cattle . The first possesses a moderately thick raellew hide , with elastic handling flesh . This quality of meat is always beautifully marbled ; when hanging in the shambles or stalls , is always free from soft grease , and generally sufficiently stiff to cut smoothly in warm weather : does not diminish much in size when cooking . Second . quality carries a thin hide ,, handles flabby , a...

Hereditary Diseases of lories . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

Hereditary Diseases of lories . The following extracts from Youatfand Dunn , Jr . seem to prove that particular diseases bepome fixed in particular families of domestic animals , and when so fixed are just as transmissible from generation to generation , as , vigor of constitution , beauty of form , excellence of temper , or any merit or defect whatever , whimsical or otherwise : There is scarcely a disease- by which either of the parents is affected , that the foal does not often inherit , or , at least show a predisposition to it . Even the consequences of ill usuage , or hard work will descend to the progeny . There has been proof upon proof that blindness , roaring , thick-wind , broken wind , spavins , curb , ringbone and founder , have been bequeathed to their offspring . both by the sire and ; the dam . —Youatt . A foal had apparently good eyes , butthe first day had not passed before it was evident that it was totally blind . Inquiry was then made about the sire , for the ma...

Hogs and Pork . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1856

Hogs and Pork . CINCINNATI , Oct . 22 d—There has been some demand for Pork , for New York delivery in December , but packers are not disposed to make such contracts , owing to the uncertainty of being able to reach that market . Manufacturers have contracted for Lard from early hogs , at 10 $ @ lle , buyers furnishing packages—chiefly below lie . With the exception of the New York demand referred to , there is no demand for meat for early delivery . The stock of old Bacon is considerable , and there is barrel Pork enough to carry consumers over to the new season . Packers are therefore not overly anxious to secure early hogs , and there is but little movement in the market . The total contracts for hogs , in this market , reach about 50 , 000 head—the indications at present are that the market will open at about § 6 50 P 100 ft > net . The high price of Lard and Pork , being expected to justify this figure , notwithstanding the dull market for other parts of the hog .

Defence of Southern Illinois . «« [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Defence of Southern Illinois . «« Why is Southern Illinois , with its fine cl mate , its excellent soil , its business advantages and tho fact that it was the earliest portion of the State settled , behind other partsof the State in population and improvement :. That all those truths are readily admitted every where ^ most certain . Why then we repeat , is Southern Illinois behind other parts of the State , in Agricultural and other improvements ? We are glad that a distinguished Southern Illinoisau has taken upon himself the duty of answering this question . Wm . S . Wait , Esq ., of Bond county , delivered an address before the Agricultural Society of Clinton County , on the 17 th October last—on the occasion of the county Fair , —in which he says : We of Southern Illinois have been comparatively slow in agricultural development , and there is a reason for this state of things which is not generally known , and which justice to ourselves demands that we should understand . i Immed...

PROSPECTUS OF THE IJL £ , IJVOIS JFJIRMEK . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

PROSPECTUS OF THE IJL £ , IJVOIS JFJIRMEK . In December , 1855 , we presented to the public the prospectus for the first volume of the Illinois Farmer . We did this with some hesitation ; that hesitation was overcome by the wishes and judgment of our friends . Considering the short time the prospectus was before the public previous to the time fixed for issuing the first number , we had reason to he gratified with , the number of subscribers whose names were promptly furnished . We shall not forget the kind assistance rendered us by friends , as well in neighboring , as in distant counties . It was given at atime and in a manner which rendered it of great value . A year has nearly passed . Those friends near us insist that we shall present to the agricultural public a prospectus for the second volume of the Farmer . We feel certainthat an agricultural paper , published at the Capital of the State , is needed—that it can be rendered of great value to our farming interests—and publish...

Boys ! We want a little tali witn you . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Boys ! We want a little tali witn you . There are many boys in the country , who have worked on farms the past season , with the idea that when the fall work should be over , they would go into stores , or commence study , to prepare themselves to become lawyers , doctors , merchants , or speculators . Boys t we want to have a word with you on these subjects . —We have lived a little time , and have not been entirely inattentive to the ways of life . We have seen that all is not gold that glitters ;—that mercantile life has its cares and anxieties ; that the professions require mental labor and dradgery more tiresome aud ] exhausting than the labor of the hands;—and that peace of mind , personal independence , full physical development , securing health and mental vigor , more than any other class belongs to to the farmer . Youth looks at the future with joyous anticipations . Before him everything has the color of the rose . Ho knows little of the great struggle of life . He has no...

Cold Winters . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Cold Winters . Within the few last years much attention has been bestowed on the science of meteorology . It now appears to be a settled fact among men who have given attention to this subject , that cold and warm seasons come in regular cycles . We have an article on this subject from the Massachusetts Farmer , containing statistics which go far to prove this position . . It was not , -says that paper , noti ! A . D . 1705 , that observations began to be made on which this conclusion is founded ; and until A . D . 1750 these were loosely conducted , the thermometer not coming into general use before .: — l ^ oah Webster , LL . D ., so long ago as A . D1792 , published a series of tables on the weather , in which hegave , the comparative temperature of each year for a century preceding . From these tables it appears that there was a general tendency te extreme seasons from the sixth to the tenth year of every decade , and especially every alternate decade . Since that publication , ...

Making of Cider Vinegar . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Making of Cider Vinegar . Almost all the vinegar sold is supposed to be made of cider ; We doubt if a twentieth part of it is made of this article . Much of itis manufactured with some villainous compound which never ought to be used by man . A correspondent of the Horticultnralist describes his method of making vinegar from cider , which he has never known to fail . He says : The cider used for making vinegar , is generally made in the early part of the season , before the . weather becomes cold . The process is as follows : Grind the apples ; put the pomaco in open vessels for a day or two , then press out the cider , pat it in open tubs or casks , cover the cider one inch thick with pomace ; let it remain fermenting until the pomace shows signs of separating into parts ; then skim off the pomace , put the clean cider into casks , rejecting the sediment at the bottom ; place the casks of cider under cover , and protect it from freezing in the winter ; place a brick or board over t...

Chinese Sugar Cane ; The : Agricultural papers continue to give the results of experiments with this plant . The Country Gentleman of the 6 th instant , contains several articles on the subject ; Levi Bartlett , of New Hampshire , grew the plant very successfully last season . He found it to be rich in the saccharine principle , and that it made excellent fodder for stock . He found that the plant contained sugar , alcohol and a liquor which made a fermented drink aualayous to cider . Mr . J . T . . C . Hyde of Newton Centre , Mass ! -, says : My cane seed wasplanted about the 20 th of May . It came up well and grew well , having reached the height of ten feet ; A few days ago , the plant just being ., put of flower , or in other words past ; its bloom , I cut several stalks and stripped the : leaves ; crushed the cane and pressed out the juice ; which ! boiled down to molasses ; and a fine article it is—as good as can be bought for fift ^ or sixty Cents per gallon .

Good Treatment of Hens . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Good Treatment of Hens . Eggs at this season of the year arc scarce and dear . They are worth now 20 cents a dozen and will be higher . If farmers were to take the necessary care of their hens , they would largely increase the number of eggs , which would be a source of profit . This is not so difficult as one may suppose . Some valuable hints are furnished in the following article from the Country Gentleman . We have long been firmly persuaded of the truth of the proposition with which we began , viz ., that hens will furnish eggs very nearly in the same measure that they are furnished with food , lime , & c , & c- ; but this truth never made the deep impression which it did when some facts giving evidence and illustration of it were brought under more immediate observation .. The hired man at one place was working and conversing with the hired man on another farm ; when one of them happened to mention something in regard to the nice eggs which he had every ...

Fall management of Bees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Fall management of Bees . 1 . You doubtless looked crreful about the hives , and in them during July and August , to see whether the bee-moth had laid its eggs in the cracks or corners near the bottom . If so , you removed them , of course . But if you neglected this inspection then , please make it now , and carefully observe what you see . 2 . Look to see whether plundering is going on . In the fall , strong swarms have strong proclivities to robbery . They seize and appropriate all the honey of the weaker swarms that they can . Now you may detect this operation , by seeing whether great numbers of bees are passing from one hive to another . The remedies are various . The first is , to smother the weak swarms , and secure their honey . This is better than to allow robbery , or to leave the weak swarms to eat up the honey and then die of starvation . A better way is , to unite two weak swarms in one . This may be done in the following way : —Place the hive , in which you wish the b...
