From the Grayville ( 111 , ) Herald . The Chinese Sugar Cane in Southern Illinois , Great Success in its Culture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

From the Grayville ( 111 , ) Herald . The Chinese Sugar Cane in Southern Illinois , Great Success in its Culture . Kerns ; requested by many to publish a statement , through the columns of your paper , of my experience with , and the value of the Chinese Sugar Cane , I therefore send you the following statement , which you will please insert : On the 25 th of May I planted about half an acre of ground , one year old . A portion of the soil was low and wet in the spring ; in ( act 1 covered the seed with mud ; the other part was high and sandy ; the consequence was when the dryseason set iu the wet part baked very bard , and the high burnt up for want of rain . I plowed it when about tea inches high , and that was all the working it got , with the exception of a slight hoeing previous to plowing ; my objeet was to ascertain the amount of saccharine matter contained in the stalks , and supposed enough would grow to make the experiment . Many of the stalks grew from sixteen to twenty f...

Preparing food for Animals . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Preparing food for Animals . . Mr . A . has from twenty to fifty swine to fatten . Mr * B . has eight to ten bullocks to prepare for the slaughter-house . Mr . C . has one hundred wethers , which he has contracted to Mr . D ., the agent tor the city-purveyors of fresh mutton . These wethers are to be in prime order and he is to be paid an extra price , if they overgo a given weight . This fall , too , corn is . scarce , and will be likely to command a high price . Of course , it is the interest of all these parties , to make their food go as far as possible , that is , to make a given amount of food produce the greatest amount of flesh and fat , on the animals . The question how this may be done ; will invelve the statement of several points . No one of these may be new to our experienced stock-feeders . But as the large majority of farmers , especially the young ones may not have thought of all the conditions of the highest success ; we will state some things which are quite import...

fiive Hiafo meat . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

fiive Hiafo meat . ; Many persons complains that their hens will not lay , and that , notwilhstanihg their assiduity in furnishing them with all the articles ordinarily recommended to insure fecundity , the eggs they produce will not half pay the expenses , Now , we presume there is something lacking , or the fowls would certainly not run their owners iu debt . It is not generally understood , even by those , who profess to be the most deeply versed in the mysteries of henology , that the hen , being emniverous , requires to insure fecundity a very liberal allowance of meat . When enjoying her liberty in the fields , pastures , Or door-yards , the principal part of her sustenance is derived from insects , worms , etc . She takes but sparingly at snch times of grain , and often when that article is supplied , leaves it for the more inviting food which nature always supplies her with in her favorite haunts . Now , if we confine her where the natural propensity for this description of ...

Raising Domestic Turkeys . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Raising Domestic Turkeys . A writer in one of our agricultural journals says : It is my opinion that farmers can rake a pound of fowl easier and cheaper than a pound of pork . Heretofore I have been unfortunate in raising turkeys , but this year I have adopted a differeu mode—a plan of my own invention—by which I have been very successful . Others may have adopted the same course , hut not to my knowledge . Young turkeys are apt to die before they attain the age of three weeks . I came to the conclnsion that the fatality among them was caused by vermin , heavy feed , and coid damp weather . My method this season has been as follows : Take the eggs of the first laying and set under barn-door hens ; the second laying let the turkeys hatch . Two or three days before hatching sprinkle the nest and the fowls themselves with a little fine powdered sulphur . When the young were hatched I took a little sulphur , and gunpowder , and lard mixedi and greased their heads and necks to keep off t...

Culture of the Cranberry . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Culture of the Cranberry . The Banger ( Maine ) Courier , has the following in regard to the culture of the Cranberry in that region : Mr . Charles A . Snow , of Orrington , has presented us with a box of the finest cranberries we ever saw . For the past three years he has been experimenting in the cultivation of this fruit on a patch of bog near his house , and he has succeded in bringing them to a higher state of perfection -than those raised on the famous fields of Massachusetts . The muck is about two feet thick where the berries are raised , and a peice containing four square rods yielded him full ten bushels . He first scrapes off , the moss , etc ., from the surface , and scarfs obt a place with a spade , into which he puts a plant , and he has ho farther trouble with them . In two or three years the bushes run together so that it impedes the growth of the berry , when he passes over the ground with a spade , and takes up alternate spadefuls and sets them out in some other pl...

flow to fatten Lawus for Market . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

How to fatten Lambs for Market . A correspondent of the Maine Farmer , says that Mr , Elisha Soper , of Orland , had for years fed grain to his sheep , for the purpose of forwarding his lambs , but received but little benefit therefrom . He ut last thought there might be a better way , so he tried the experiment of feeding liis lambs with oats , in a trough made by nailing two boards together , covering the ends , and raising it about six inches from the floor . He puts in the oats and leaves until the lambs learn to eat them , which , he says , they will do when about three weeks old . He leaves a passage for his lambs so small that his sheep cannot trouble them , both in his barn and in a yard made for the purpose after going to pasture , and continues to feed until he sells , which is in June . He has lambs ten weeks old that will dress fifteen pounds .

Exhausting the Soil . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Exhausting the Soil . We read in America much of the exhausted soil of Europe . I have seen none of it . So far from being exhausted , I think the soil of Europe is now better than ever . How can soil be exhausted , which has for centuries received plentifully of manures , ar . d manures made upon the best possible system ? I think a little reflection , coupled with the proper observance of European agriculture , must leak to the conviction that the soil of Europe is constantly receiving more back in manures , & c , than is taken away in products . Of all farm products , the atmosphere and rains furnish the larger quantities of its component parts , and whenever a proper system of manuring exists , the ground must become constantly enriched . In Europe , manure is the ever-present idea of the farmer , and by gathering all offals , and making manure in any conceivable way , he does not only by green manuring , such as plowing clover under but by stable factory , street , ...

Stick to Tour Business , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Stick to Tour Business , There is nothing which should be more frequently impressed upon the minds of young men than the importance of steadily pursuing one business . The frequent changing Irom one employment to another is one of tte most common errors committed , and to it may be traeed more than half the failures of men -in business , and much of tun discontent and disappointment that render life uncomfortable . It is a very common thing for a man to be dissatisfied with his business , and to desire to change it for some other , and what seems to him will prove a more lucrative employment ; but in nine cases out of ten it is a mistake . Look round you , and you will find among your acquaintances abundant verification of our assertion . Here is a young man who commenced life as a mechanic , but from some cause imagined that he ought to have been a doctor ; and after a hasty and shallow preparation has taken up the saddle-bags only to find that work is still work and that his patie...

Song of the Season . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Song of the Season . BT CHARLES MACKAT . I heard the language of the trees , In the norms of the early summer ; As the leaves were moved like rippling seas By the wind—a constant comer . It came and it went at its wanton will ; And evermore loved to delay , With branch and flower , from the cope of the hill To the warm depths of the valley . The sunlight glow : d ; the waters flowd ; The birds their music chanted , And the words of the trees on my senses fell , By a spirit of Beauty haunted ; Said each to each , in mystic speech;—The skies our branches nourish : The world is-good—the world is fair—Let us enjoy and flourish 1 Again I heard the steadfast trees ; The wintry winds were blowing ; . There seeord a roar as of stormy seas , And of ships to the depths down-going ; And every moan thro the woods was blown , As the branches snappd asunder . And the long boughs swung like the frantic arms Of a crowd in alright and wonder . Heavily rattled tie driving hail I And storm and flood c...

Apples for Human Food . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1856

Apples for Human Food . The importance of apples as food , has not hitherto been sufficiently estimated in this country , nor understood . Besides contributing a large portion of sugar , mucilage , and other nutritive matter , in the form ot food , they contain such a fine combination of vegetable acids , extractive substances , and aromatic principles , with the nutritive matter , as to act powerfully in the capacity of refreshments , tonics , and antisceptics ; and when fre ely used at the season ot ripeness , by rural laborers and others , tbey prevent debility , strengthen digestion , correct the putrefactive tendencies of nitrogenous food , avert scurvy , and probably maintain and strengthen the powers of productive labor . The operatives of Cornwall , in England , consider apples nearly as nourishing as bread , and more so than potatoes . In the year 1801 , a year of scarcity , apples , instead of being converled . into cider , were fold to the poor ; aud the laborers asserted...

The New Year [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1857

The New Year Man should never be satisfied unless he is in a way to benefit himself or others . This doctrine is simply that of progress , —a doctrine that should evcr have an effective influence on every rational mind . To no class of society can it have a more useful application than to farmers , in the broadest understanding of the term . Probably more improvements have been made in farming within the last few years than in any other profession . Men have not been satisfied with the old routine of Agricultural operations . Land has been worked better—seed has been provided with more care—crops in their growth have received more attention—causes of failure as well as of success have have been ascertained , and the farmer now feels that if he does his duty , in nineteen times out of twenty , he will be well rewarded for his labor . And so of stock . He finds that his stock can be improved , with great profit to himself , He seeks better stock of cattle , horses , hogs , sheep and m...

Legislative Aid to Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1857

Legislative Aid to Agriculture . We have a few thoughts that we desire to give on this subject . Politicians of every name are in the practice of eommending the profession of Agriculture , and of representing that farmers are the muscle , bone and sinew of the country . This is mainly done , as we are forced to believe , to obtain the use of this muscle , bone and sinew , to elevate themselves into power . We have too long listened to these compliments without reflecting on their objects . It would be well , even now , to examine the matter , and learn whether thiB great interest of our State—without the success of which , with all the inherent richness of our sails , our fine climate , our easy access to markets—has been duly and properly represented in our government , and received that attention from it which is really due to that great and leading interest . The farmers , mechanics and working men comprise an immense majority of our population . And of what material was our last...

Improving Country Besidenees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1857

Improving Country Besidenees . Hovey s Magazine for November , says : Throughout the Western States there is room for great improvement in every class of country or farm dwellings . The timberless prairies offer free scope for the blasting winds to sweep across them , and nothing appeared to us more desolate than the small but neat houses , standing solitary and alone , without so much as a single tree on the vast expanse of broad prairie almost as far as the eye could reach . At what slight expense and in how little time could this be altered , simply by the planting of a dozen t rees , or even by the sowing of a handful of seeds ; for in that rich soil everything grows with great rapidity , and there can be little excuse for neglecting the work . Shelter from the wind and shade from the sun are two of the most important objects in ornamental plantations . Mr . Hovey thus depicts scenes which he witnessed in many parts of bur State in the autumn of 1855 . He seemed hardly to realiz...
