Gutta Percha and India Rubber [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1857

Gutta Percha and India Rubber These two articles which were scarcely known when the Merchants Gazette was establiished in 1839 , now occupy a large space in the commerce and industry of the world . Very many persons , say our cotemporary , the Southern Argus , wheth they first arise in the morning , takes a bath in a Gutta Percha tub , comb their hair with a gutta percha comb , and shave with a gutta percha handled razor , sharpened on a gutta percha razor strop , before a mirror with a gutta percha frame ; eat their breakfast on a gutto percha table cover , and over a gutta percha crumb cloth , and after they have finished take their gutta percha walking-stick and rally forth to their business ; and if it is raining , don themselves from head to foot in gutta percha garments . And yet many of these intelligent people are totally ignorant of the article which they use so extensively , and many imagine that it is a preparation of the old fashioned India rubber . Mr . E . L . Simpson ...

HYGIENE [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1857

HYGIENE Fever and Aguc ; How to Live in Dntealtlifiil Situations . To go west , and to have lever and ague , are almost synonymous . Indeed , we once knew a Methodist preicher , who was going out wist on purpose to catch the ague , in ordi-r to cure him of bronchitis , or preacher s sore throat 1 Evt-ry man expects to have lever and ague who goes into a new country to settle . The western parts of the State of New York , and even the adjacent parts of the counties of New York and Westchester , are very much infested with this disease . The consequence is , that the value of the property iu these parts is depreciated . - We have no doubt , that if there could be discovered a certain cure for—or , still better a prevention of this disease , the value of the land would , in many cases , rise fifty percent , at once . We should be very much elated in heartand en , riched in intellect , if we could prescribe a sure remedy for the country , or the inhabitants . But , as we do not profess ...

PROSPECTUS OFf THJE . . JX T , IJrOJS FJltejfl ^ ER . In December , 1855 , we presented to the public the prospectus for the first volume of the Illinois Farmer . Wo 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 tp the time fixed for issuing the first number , we had reason to be 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 a time 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 .

Legislative Aid to Agriculture , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

Legislative Aid to Agriculture , We called attention to this subject in . an article in the last Farmer . We are in favor of Legislative aid to Agriculture . — Agriculture is , confessedly , the great indujfc trial interest of the State . It Is the sourW of all our wealth and all our prosperity . A large portion of . the public revenues of this State are derived from lands , and other property belonging to the agricultural part of our population . They have , therefore , peculiar claims upon the Legislature for aid in developing the Agricultural resources of the State . The Agricultural press in different parts of the country , is pressing this subject upon the attention of Legislatures . We have now before us the Valley Farmer , which reminds us of what has been done in several States by Legislatures in aid of the great interest for which we plead , We transfer to our columns most of the article to which , we have referred , as embracing facts of general interest . Ohio has made ap...

n- — : — Country Homes . Farm houses , cottages , country seats , — what a world of good is summed up in these words ? How much of interest centers on a home in the country , on the ultimate repose we intend to give ourselves before we go to the final rest ? Such is the language , the deeper feeling , of the affluent of the great cities of London , New York , Boston , gayer Paris even , as they buy their estate , their farm , their seat , in some secluded place , away from cares that have hitherto oppressed their steps . ¦ - We likfe the country because there is a freedom in it- because it is generally more virtuous than the city life ; Its unlimited range of earthly view is , or ought to be , a type of largeness of thought and soul—a mean man from the country could hardly be , if he had used his senses , —had elicited instruction from the teeming observation around him . In the country there is more time to reflect ; more nature to attract attention ; more of mother Earth to give u...

The Chinese Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

The Chinese Sugar Cane . The Patent Office is now distributing the seed of this plant , in the different States . — That which was distributed from the same office a year since , was sown by many in different parts of the country , north , west , east and south , and the result has been very satisfactory . The plant has been found to make most excellent fodder , and when the experiment has been made of its saccharine qualities , has given decided satisfaction . — No to go any farther than pur own State ; we know , that in Wabash county , Sangamon county , and Rock Island county , most excellent molasses has been made of the juice of the plant . We have tested the molasses made in this county and Rock Island county , and are perfectly certain that the article was fully up to the standard of any we have seen from Louisiana . Specimens made in this county , with little care , granulated ; so that we are sure the syrup can be converted into sugar . In the Patent Office Report for 1855 ,...

Foreign Demand for American Produce . , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

Foreign Demand for American Produce . , The foreign demand for American produce greatly influences the home prices ., The Cincinnati Gazette has . an article on this subject containing facts aud apeculatioas of maeh interest . An investigation proves that the production of live animals in the United States does not increase in proportion to our population ; and , indeed , in some of the older States that there had been an actual decrease between 1840 and 1850 . This fact , says the Gazette , explains in a measure , the apparent mystery connected with the market for bread stuffs aud provisions , and which for several years post has puzzled the most shrewd and best informed operators . From a superficial view of the progress ol sericulture in the United States , it might appear that our products increased more rapidly than the population ; such , however , is not the fact . It is true , that the quantity of land sold by the government has been very large , but the purchase of land is ...

•*¦ Chinese Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

•*¦ Chinese Sugar Cane . We give a valuable communication on this new plant from J . C . ORTH , ESQ ., of Wabash county . The facts in his communication are derived from his own experience . To the Editors of the Illinois Farmer : Just at this time nothing can be brought before the farming community of more interest than some reliable information about the newly introduced plant , the Chinese Sugar Cane , or Sugar Millet . I planted the seed of this plant in 1855 , and again in 1856—and am fully satisfied with the result of my experiments with it . It wants no extra cultivation , and any one who understands the cultivation of Indian corn knows all about raising Sugar Millet . I am satisfied that it should be planted in the . same manner , and after planting attended like corn . The only difficulty I found wts in knowing the time when it should be cut for boiling . I made several experiments , and am fully convinced that it should not be cut until the seed baa fairly turned black , a...

Scarcity and Cost of Provisions . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

Scarcity and Cost of Provisions . There is room for much reflection in the high price of provisions , —in the dearness of human sustenance , that prevails so generally over the woild . In early times , through the records of all history , men have suffered from the want of food ; the Patriarchs went into Egypt , or sent there , after corn ; and Egypt was afterwards visited with a famine . The inhabitants of India and China , forming the bulk of the Asiatics , are not a well fed people , —flesh being almost unknown to them ; and in the latter country , snakes and reptiles are exhibited in the market stalls of the . great cities , and are readily taken by those who have the power wherewithal to buy . In Europe there are few countries where the lower or middle classes have the power of much selection in the quality or quantity of their food . Indians and the barbarous , all the world over , are celebrated for the precariousness with which they live ; the want of nutriment ; the abstine...

THE GRAZIER [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

THE GRAZIER Arab Horses . We find a most interesting letter from one of a party of three Americans , who recently visited Palestine , Syria , Damascus and the homes of the Bedouin Arabs , for the purpose of obtaining and bringing to Kentucky some horses of pure Arab blood . One of these gentlemen was A . K . Richards , well known in Kentucky , as the owner and breeder of fine horses . The whole / letter is interesting , but we have only room for that portion of it directly relating to our subject . The letter is dated at Gavston near Liverpool . The writer says — You are doubtless acquainted with A . K . Richards , the importer of some Arab horses a few years ago , and the owner of some of the best stock in America—Peytbna , Blonde and many others . It has- ever been his opinion that the Arab horse is superior to every race in the world , either for racing , riding , or , crossed with the proper kind of mares , for carnage purposes . Although the importation he made was much approve...

Illinois Stock Importing Association . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

Illinois Stock Importing Association . On the 9 th of January , there was organized in this city an Association , the object of which is briefly expressed in the caption to this article . It is intended as an institution to embrace the whole State , and subscriptions to its stock are invited from every part of Illinois . We need not say that the object is an important one . That is selfevident . Illinois is fast becoming a leading stock-raising State . Our climate , our soil , the excellence of our native and cultivated grasses , compel us to believe , that Illinois may justly aspire to compete with any State in the Union in the advantages of rearing stock . What we want now is to secure the best breeds of every variety for propagation . If these are to be found in Europe , ( and it is believed that they are , ) we want them in Illinois . To secure this great object , is the des-gu of this Association ; and the appea [ is made to our enterprising aud progressive farmers to add to th...

From the Ohio Earmer . Close Breeding— -Its EffectSj and the Cause Thereof . . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

From the Ohio Earmer . Close Breeding— -Its EffectSj and the Cause Thereof . . There is an impression that iu-and-in breeding produces an inevitable deterioration , and that this is made manifest in a certain and invariable manner . This dogma has passed into certain sciences—physiology for example ; and then diffusing itself over the face of society again , re-appears continually in newspapers . I have expressed my conviction of the total erroneousness of the common opinion , in some articles which my good friend Mr . Brown permitted me to publish about a year since in the Ohio Farmer , on the culture of domestic animals . Repeated conversations since that time , both with practical and scientific men , have led me to suppose that I would have done well to have attempted , at that time , a mote precise explanation of the real nature of those evils which are often seen to attend extreme in-and-in breeding , and a more distinct statement of the real working of the practice , both for...

Shade Trees on the Prairies . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

Shade Trees on the Prairies . From tlie Valluv Farmer . With all the natural beauty of the Prairies there is a nakedness around many a farm house , that in the season of winter imparts a shudder to the beholder , and under the burning sun of July the opposite sensation is very forcibly brought to mind . With proper care and fore ? hought in establishing nurseries of shade trees in various sections of the prairie region , not only profitable trade might spring up with the grower , but he would have the proud satisfaction of witnessing a few years hence , the vast improvement he had caused in the landscape , and the comfort he has been instrumental in imparting to his fellow neighbors . There are a variety of fast growing shade trees suitable to fill the great blank around the many farm houses . of the prairies . But all need not wait for the trees to be planted and grown in the nursery . . There are thousands of native trees of large size upon the borders of the streams , and in the ...
