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

THE GARDENER . We have devoted considerable space in the first pages of this number of the Farmer , to the Vegetable Garden . It is now time to be provided with the proper seeds , and persons should be careful to obtain fresh seed . Vegetables make a considerable portion of the food for the summer season , especially , and furnish a diet that may save many doctors bills . Farmers will find it much to their advantage to renew the seed , from year to year , of many kinds of vegetables . From the American Agriculturist . Small Gardens . What you say in relation to the profits of a small garden is very true . I have in this city , ( Roxbury , Mass ., ) about one-third of an acre adjoining my house , well set with fruit trees of all varieties . I have more than fifty pear trees , all of which are doing finely . One Bartlett this year yielded five and a half bushels of pears , worth $ 4 a bushel .

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1857

HORTICULTURAL Remedy for Rot in Grapes . • -. At : a recent meeting of the American Wine Growers Association , in Cincinnati , the following communication was read from Mr . Werk , on the subject of Grape Rot : Allow me to explain to you the trials I have made in this country , in the . cultivation of the grape , during the last eleven years , and my intentions for the future in regard to the rot , It is a remarkable fact that vines never fail , in this country , inthjeir flowering . period ; at least , I never have wit nessed it . They hang as full of grapes as they can , every year . The favorable flowering of the vines , in the greatest part of the old country , generally is the barometer of an abundant crop , and if the flowering of the vines is a failure , the-crop , of course , is a failure ; . the enemy there and the rot here . The quality there depends alone on the dry , warm summer , to bring the grapes to maturity , which is never the case here , ( if the vmes . are not ov...

Spring Work . Our farmers are now called to this work in earnest . —Has the drought of last fall and the cold ef the winter , cut off your wheat ? If so , what is to be done with the land . You can sew upon it spring wheat , sping barley and flax , with a reasonable prospect of a handsome profit . Either of these crops are better than oats . What is to be done ? There is no time to be lost . — Wheat will be likely to bring a good price the coming summer . We are told that St . Louis operators are contracting at $ 1 , 70 tor the next crop of barley ; and flax seed is bringing large prices at St . Louis and has done so for the last two years or more . The supply is not at all adeqaate to the demand . Farmers should now attend to their orchards . Trim where-necessary . If you have BO orchard , you should lose no time in patting out one—especially should you not lose another year . — Fifty apple trees will make an orchard for a family .

The State Normal School . The Legislature have authorized the establishment of a State Normal School . This school is mainly intended for the instruction of young men , so as to qualify thera to be the instructors of yeuth . We notice that many of those who had been urging the establishment of an Industrial University , united in sustaining the project for a Normal School . They required the Normal School as the beginning of a system which shall be extended , as necessity shall require , until such means of education can be provided as are demanded by the best interests of our agricultural population . IgfThere are many opinions in regard to the proper time for trimming trees . We prefer spring . Do this with sharp instruments , thatthe wounds may sooner heal over . Shrubbery must now be trimmed and pruned so as to make compact and handsome bushes . Roses blossom best by cutting off the tops ot shoots and trimming out superfluous wood .

Ploughing by Steam . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Ploughing by Steam . Much has been said and written and published lately on the subject of plowing by steam . The attempt of Mr . Hussey , in Maryland , was partially successful . While we have been talking however , there have been those who have been acting in England . The first trial there was by a stationary engine . This did the work well enough on a small field , but it was not what was demanded . A new engine has been introduced in England , lately , which is likely to answer the wants of the farming community to some extent . It is called Boydell s Traction Engine , with revolving railway . Its operation seems to demonstrate , that the engine will work on even grounds , like those of the prairies of the west . We doubt much whether any locomotive can be made to work on uneven or hilly soil . The London Agricultural Gazette , an authority which may be relied upon , gives the following account of some recent experiments made in England with Boydell s Traction Engine : The tri...

Cfieap AiMe for Building . , A comfortable ^ dwelling is one of the leading . comforts of life .

The New York Spirit of the Times gives the following directions for examining the condition of a horse : In purchasing a good horse , sight , wind , feet and limbs must be the uppermost objects of inquiry ; for nine horses out of ten are defective in one of these particulars . First , then , examine his eyes , and do this before becomes out of the stable ; see that they are perfectly clear and transparent , and that the pupils or apples of the eye are exactly alike in size and color . Next examine his pipes ; if good and sound , on being nipped in the gullet , he will utter a sound like that from a bellows ; but if his lungs are touched , and he is broken winded , he will giye vent to a dry , husky short cough ; look to his limbs also , and in passing your hand down his legs , if you find any unnatural protuberance , or puffiness , or if feeling first one leg then the other , you discover any difference between them , disease more or less is pres...

Tbe Cholera among Hogs , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Tbe Cholera among Hogs , The , Buffalo Republic , referring to the malady that has prevailed among hogs in the Ohio valley , says : The same malady appears to have prevailed extensively in the adjoining States . In Western New York , especially , we learn it has been very fatal , but is now over . In conversation with one of the most extensive dealers in the neighborhood , a day or , two since , he informed us that about six weeks ago he lost about 400 in a very short space of time . A distiller in Jordan , during the month of September , lost fourteen hundred , which cost him in addition over $ 1 , 000 to have them buried . In Rochester , at all the principal points , and even among the farmers , the mortality has exceeded anything ever before heard of . A butcher in this city not long since , purchased five hundred dollars worth of fat hogs , but they died go rapidly on his hands , that he scarcely realized $ 75 on his investment . In this quarter the disease appears to have been ...
