THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

THE DAIRY . NEW PROCESS OF MAKING BUTTER . —Mr . D Minthorn , of Jefferson county , exhibited at the late State Fair at Watertown , New York , gome samples of very fine butter , made by a process whioh he describes as follows : This sample of butter is , made by my improved method , whtreby every drop of wuter or buttermilk is taken out of it by solar evaporation . In this process , I claim to have so perfected butter making , that butter maybe kept sweet tor several days , without the rancid odor caused by the decomposition of . water and butter milk , that pervades most of the butter at the present time . The following is an outline of my improved process : Firstly , in churning the cream , enough ice should be put into it occasionally , ; o make the batter come in crumbs ; pour oli the buttermilk and wash the btitter several times in soltice water , until there ceases 10 be any milky appearance . During the process of washing , sboald there be a , solid lump of butter large enoug...

THE FLORIST , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

THE FLORIST , THE KOSE . —This will always be regarded as the Queen of Flowers . In Eastern lands , and wherever civilization has at all made advances , to the rose has been assigned the first place among ornamental plants . Formerly there were but few varieties known in Europe and Western Asia , and those blossomed only iti the spring . Within the memory of many , varieties of the Chinese Rose were brought from China , which had the quality of perpetual flowering . These have been hybrdi * ed with other Ptoses , and we have now at this time a class of Hardy Perpetual Roses , some of which may be found almost in constant bloom , aud others blooming in Spring , in mid-Summer and in Autumn . The producing of these classes of Roses , has been deemed one of the greatest achievements of the professional florist . Most of them come from France , but there are several of the finest which have originated in this country . They vary in color from white to the deepest crimson . A half dozen c...

EDITORIAL NOTICES [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

EDITORIAL NOTICES MICHIGAN DOUBLE PLOW . — -A writerin the Country Gentleman says : This is a valuable instrument . I have owned one since September , 1852 , and used it sufficiently to wear out many points-and one landside , and have this day replaced the worn parts with new , aud commenced turning a stony piece of land , that , from causes needless to mention here , has been down too long—consequently June grass has taken the place of the clover , and now stands nine inches high in defiance of stock , and seemingly boasts of becoming lord supreme of the premises ; but my Michigan plow , with three horses , is putting it in the bortora of a nine inch furrow , perfectly covered , and a good quantify of loose dirt about it , that will only need the harrow and gang plow to make it the most desirable preparation for wheat . With me nothing is equal to it for plowing corn stubble , and other material that should be put out of the way in preparing land properly for a crop . ILLINOIS BEEF...

, « i Trees—Climate . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

, « i Trees—Climate . It is a common observation , that our summers are becoming dryer and our streams smaller . Take the Cuyahoga as an illustration . Fifty years ago , large barges , loaded with goods , went up and down that river ; and one ot the vessels engaged in the battle of Lake Erie , when Perry met the ensmy , and they were ours was built at Old Portage , six miles narlh of Albion , and floated down the lake . Now , in UD ordinary stage of water , a canoe or skiff can hardly pass down that stream . Many a boat of fifty tons burden , has been built and loaded on the Tuscarawas , at New Portage , and sailed to New Orleans without breaking bulk . Now , that river hardly aflord 3 a supply of water , at New Portage , lor the canal . The same may be said of our other streams . They are growing smaller anc beautifully less . Uur summers are growing dryer , and our winters colder . The cause of all this is in the deslruction of our forests . In the woods we find springs and stream...

No GLOOM AT HOME , —Above all things [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1857

No GLOOM AT HOME , —Above all things there should be no gloom in the home . The shadows of dark discontent and wastefulness should never cross the threshhold , throwing their large , black shades , like funerpl palls over the happy young spirits gathered there If you will , your home shall be heaven , and every inmate an angel there . If you will , you shall sit on a throne , and be the presiding household deity . 0 ! faithful wife . What privileges , what treasures greater or purer tnan thine ? And let the husband strive to forget his cares , as he winds around the long narrow street , and beholds the soft light illuming his little parlor , spreading its precious beams on the red pave before it . He has been harrassed , perplexed , persecuted . He has borne with many a cruel word , and nerved himself up to an energy so desperate , that his frame and spirits are weakened and depressed . And now his limbs ache with weariness , his temples throb with the painheat , caused by too const...

Gardening . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

Gardening . The importance of a good garden to the farmer , can hardly be overrated . It furnishes his table with much desirable and healthy food . A day s labor in the garden will pay him . better than a day devoted to any other work . The garden , too , is important for the mechanic , the laborer or professional man . But few persons are so much employed that they cannot spend half an hour each day for the garden . Women and children promote their own health by occasionally doing light work in the garden . We need not dwell upon these facts ; for they are too well known to be questioned . - Most of our soils in the West make good gardens . If there is too much clay in the soil it can be improved by well rotted manure . The soil , should be rich , deep and dry . That which does not bake is best . If the garden has a southern aspect , you will obtain vegetables early—an object very desirable . A flat garden , take the season through , produces better , than one on an inclined plane ...

Illinois Stock Importing Association , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

Illinois Stock Importing Association , The agents of this company made arrangements to leave on the 5 th instant , for England , for the purpose of purchasing , and importing into our State , the best stock that can be obtained in that country . The stock raisers of this State are determined not to be behind those of any other State in the good qualities of their stock . They intend that it shall be unnecessary for any citizen of this State , or of the States and Territories West of us , to go East or South to obtain fine stock . The gentlemen employed as agents of the association , J . N . Brown , H . C . Johns , and H . Jacoby , understand stock business , and we anticipate confidently that their purcha ses and importation will be of the first character . We suppose the agents will be absent for at least three months ; and they may not return until the latter part of June . The stock , when brought here , will probably be kept on the Fair Ground of the Sangamon Agricultural and Me...

Revenues , Tariffs , Taxation . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

Revenues , Tariffs , Taxation . Editor Illinois Farmer-. The revenues of most commercial nations are derived chiefly from the foreign commodities they consume . Without denying the advantages of this system . aside from the protection of home interests , to which we willhereafter allude , they seem to consist in convenience , and the satisfactory unconsciousness with which large and extortionary sums are taken from you , and pat into the dark and anknown abysses of the treasury . It may be tolerated under govern - ments-with which the people have nothing to do , hot is a reproach to those who administer their own government , and have a lively and intelligent sense of their rights . Duties on foreign goods bear unequally and unjustly upon the different members of society ; a poor man may from a variety of circumstances consume more of foreign goods than his richer neighbor , and as revenue is based upon property , the system becomes doubly hard upon those who have small means- To th...

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

Chinese Sugar Cane . We have noticed the publications of individuals who have made experiments with the Chinese Sugar Cane , with a good deal of attention , and so far we have not seen the first thing to discourage the hope that molasses and sugar can be made from this cane . No regular attempts seem to have been made for making sugar , but in- many instances the molasses has granulated , and those who understand the subject best express the utmost confidence that good sugar , as we know good molasses , can be made from the plant . We have now before us the American Agriculturist , which contains several articles on the subject of this cane . We select two of them : COLD SPRING HARBOR , Jan . 21 , 57 . To the Editor of the Am . Agriculturist : Last year I found it produced a very sweet juice , and I saved enough seed from ten plants to put in half an acre . One half I fed out , and found horses , pigs and cattle , eat it with avidity , though when ripe , owing to the flinty skin ^ t...

New Orchards . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

New Orchards . Editor Illinois Farmer . I have been at work some five years on my farm , which , when I took hold of it , was raw prairie . Being poor and short handed , it required all my time to get it fenced , plowed , and the buildings necessary , ( and they are very common ones , ) put up to make my family comfortable . For two years I had no time to spend in making such improvements as render a country residence beautiful . I mean I had no time to fix up yards , and lay out my garden grounds as I had always intended to do , and plant trees and shrubbery so as to make the place look like a home . Bat I have prospered on a small scale , and I now have more time to spend in regulating these matters , not much time for this , however , but as I tel 1 my wife , I am determined to take time . And now I want a little advice from you . I want you should tell me what I want in the way of garden fruit , trees and shrubbery , just a few , and how many apple trees I ought to have for an o...

THE FARM . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

THE FARM . French and English Farming . The last published number of the Journal of the Royal Agricultural Society contains a few particulars concerning French and English farming , which present the different results obtaining in the two countries in a peculiarly striking light . To raise corn , the immediate food of man , has for years been the prime object of the cultivator on the other side of the Channel , and with a bad effect on the land , because he has not not sufficiently cared for keeping up the fertility of the soil . The Englishmen , on the other hand , by devoting a considerable area to green crops and the raising of cattle , not only maintains the fertility of his fields , but produces more wheat from a smaller surface . Taking England alone , a country not larger than one-fourth of France , the produce is 38 , 000 , 000 hectolitres of wheat , 16 , 000 , 000 of barley , 34 , 000 , 000 of oats . France produces 15 , 000 , 000 hectolitres of wheat , and 100 , 000 , 000 ...

«¦> Profitable Farming . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

«¦> Profitable Farming . A gentleman farmer , we do not mean one who puts on airs , or farms at the expense of money made in other callings , but an earnest , self-reliant , enterprising man , one who farms for profit and wins , wrote us last November , as below : My carrot crop has just been harvested . I employed a practical surveyor to measure off just one half acre on the west side of the field you saw , and the carrots were all sold by the pound , and I was satisfied of the weight , and found it to be 21 , 250 pounds . This lot was entered for the premium offered by our Society . They required all to be weighed ; and thinking it less trouble I sold them on the lot for one-half cent per pound , and received $ 106 , 25 in cash for the half acre , besides nearly enough tops to feed to pay the harvesting . Nothing more , was done after you saw them than harvesting and loading teams on the lot . I am sorry that I did not thin one row so as to compare the difference . If a...

Deep and Shallow Plowing . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

Deep and Shallow Plowing . — . w » . From the Countrv Gentleman . So various-are the opinions on this subr ject , as expressed in the manuals of culture , and the weekly publications , that positive authority can be found for either ; leaving the anxious inquirer for truth in ; the condition of the ass in the fable , standing between two stacks of hay . So far as my own observation has extended ; I have never known any injury to accrue from sinking the plow to a generous depth , provided a corresponding application of fertilizing material was made to the land at the same time , but on the contrary , I have often known the labor applied to land almost entirely sacrificed for the want of proper attention to depth in plowing . ¦ • .-., There is scarcely any plant cultivated , the roots and fibres of which , will not sink to the depth of 12 inches or more , if the soil is in condition to admit of snch penetration . Take for instance , Indian corn , a plant more extensively grown than an...

Experiments in Corn Planting . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

Experiments in Corn Planting . Th 0 following experiments were made by the Eton . Adam Beatty , of Kentucky , a few years since , in order to ascertain the advantages or disadvantages of planting cord more closely than usual : On one side of the field I laid off , in an oblong square , four acres , each acre lying equally well , and of equal fertility . It was laid off for planting the long way , with great accuracy , three and a half feet from centre to centre of each farrow , and then checked off the other way in rows as follows : The first acre four feet a-part ; the second acre three and a half feet a-part ; the third acre three feet a-part ; . and the fourth acre two and a half feet apart . The whole was planted the same day ; and in due time the three first acres were thinned out to three stalks in the hill , and the fourth acre to two stalks in a hill . The number of stalks to an acre ( if none had been missing , ) would have been as follows : . No . 1 , 3 ] 4 by 4 feet 9 , 8...

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

THE GRAZIER Fattening Animals , The following hints on the subject , from the Albany Cultivator will be found of interest : Substances in which the nutriment is much concentrated should be fed with care . There is danger , especially when the animal is first put to feed , that more may . be . eaten at once than the digestive organs can manage . Meal of Indian corn is highly nutritive , and when properly fed , causes animals to fatten faster than almost any other food . They will not , however , bear to ! be exclusively kept on this article for any length of time . Meal made from the heaviest varieties of corn , especially that grown in the northern and eastern States , is quite too strong food for cattle , sheep , or horses to be full-fed upon . Hence one of the advantages of having the cob ground with the corn , by which the nutriment is diffused through a greater bulk , lays lighter on the stomach , and is more thoroughly digested . The ef fect of pure corn meal on animals , we su...

How to destroy lice on Calves . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

How to destroy lice on Calves . . .-. : <* * -: . . ¦ , From the Country Gentleman .. It will often happen , in spite of one s best efforts , that a calf will become lousy ; soon he will communicate the vermin to all in the flock , and they : will increase with astonishing and alarming rapidity . It is not always an easy matter to rid the youthful bovines of these pests , and many will contract divers other ailments in consequence , which too often prove fatal , Some of the books recommend one remedy and some another—most of which either prove unsatisfactory or troublesome in application . : A simple , but invariably • effectual -remedy is used in this section ,- which may not be known to the majority of your cattle-breeding readers . It is smoking : them with tobacco- —one of the very feW good purposes which the vile weed may be : made to subserve . We use a pipe made after this fashion : the bowl is a round piece of Wood fifteen inches in length by three and a half inch...

m— - — To Fatten Horses . Every horseman knows that a horse looks twenty per cent better if fattened in a short time , than if several months are employed in the process . I dont believe in loading a horse down with fat—they do better in medium condition ., A horse if not very thin , can be put in fine condition in three weeks . But a narrow-headed , yardnecked , narrow ; breasted , lighquartered . animal ) , if he has never been fat will give you a two or three months task , and will look , the better . for all the flesh you may put on him . , To fatten a poor horse quickly , is no easy task . It is to be done by a variety of , tl > e best feed , and with close attention in g iving it . Many persons feed sufficiently liberal , and yet their horses . are low in flesh , sim p ly because of the careless , pnd irregular ^ manner in which it is given out .- ? -When I wish to fatten a poor horse , I put his . stable ; in a clean and neat condition , and cornmenceby giving him ...
