CATTLE SHOW AND FAIR AT OTTAWA [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

CATTLE SHOW AND FAIR AT OTTAWA THE third annual exhibition of the Union Agricultural Society came off at Ottawa on Tuesday the SGtli Sept ., continuing three days . The attendance was not as great as had been anticipated , And for three very good reasons . In the : first place , the season has boon so backward that very many of the farmers have been unable to finish their haying and harvesting . With such , every day was so valuable they were compelled to forego the i deasures of attending the exhibition . To many of them we know it was a . deprivation which nothing but stern necessity could have compelled of idiom , and their absence was sinceroiy regretted . Again ; numbers are sick about the country , and the sickness of an individual member of a family would often render the presence of the others necessary at home . And again ; La Salle is at the south end o ( the district of the Society , so that members had a long distance to go from the northern counties , and Monday , the d...

PROGRESS IN THE CANAL COUNTIES [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

PROGRESS IN THE CANAL COUNTIES OUR journey to the fair led its through a section of the country which one of the editors of this paper had not visited in several years . Every where we could not but notice the progress from nothing to plenty , made visible in the course of a very few years . Our time did not allow us to make particular visits ; but the course of improvement had been so rapid , and stood out so visible , that he who ran might read . As an index of improvement , we noticed that many farmers had driven the wild prairie grass pretty much off their borders , and the cattle were rioting in fat Clover and blue grass , which will supply them with food till winter , instead of yielding to the first frost . On almost every farm , a vigorous young orchard was giving promise of fruit at an early day ; and several we saw which consisted of several hundred trees each . In one of these orchards the trees were set very thick ; thus producing much more fruit at an early day , and gi...

CORN-STALK SUGAR . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

CORN-STALK SUGAR . WE are not aware how extensive attention to this branch of business has been given the past scuson , but have awaited with no small interest the results of the labors of such as are engaged in it . From what we can gather we are induced to believe that the experiments in it , many of which are yet going on and will be continued during the fall , are quite numerous , and are scattered over a goodly portion of the United States . They are , too , as far as we can gather , conducted in a judicious way ; being mostly carried on upon a small scale , and in the way of experiment , instead of being dashed into as a branch of business already certain in its results . This fact will be much more sure to render these experiments successful ; and will be likely to introduce our farmers into the business , by degrees , and thus make it profitable without ruinous expense . As the first results that have come under our notice , we were shown what wc may call a very beautiful sa...

SILK CONVENTION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

SILK CONVENTION . WE received , but too late to be of any use , a silk circular , issued b y the American Institute of the city of New York , informing all interested in the growing of silk , that a convention of such would be held in the city of New York on the 12 th and 13 th of October , and requesting information from all parts of the United Slates on the subjects of growing the mulberry , the care of the worms , and the use made of the cocoons—in short , upon all that relates to silk culture . We very much regret that this circular could not have been received sooner . We know of several who are engaged in the business in northern Illinois , who would be glad to get the report of this convention . Among them we may name Dr . George Haskell of Winnebago county , whose worms wc saw in July , and of which he was feeding a large number . They were near their last moulting when we saw them , and we have not learned the success of their owner with them . Dr . Haskell has raised more ...

i .-T ^™ I I I From the Tennessee Agriculturist . To our readers who feel an interest in education I am happy to say , the experiment with the Elm Crag Agricultural School has succeeded beyond my highest anticipations . The second session has opened with twenty students , and several excellent young men have been refused a situation for want of buildings . I am more than satis fied , by a little exertion , a belter college than any in America might be established on ( his plan in a short time . As I cannot ask ( lie public to aid individual enterprise , I would suggest that when a gentleman or two can be found , with education , pecuniary means , and proper confidence in the plan , efforts may be made to enlarge the operations . Can such a one be found ? or shall the system of education which all the world must acknowled ge best adapted Ip man , fail , for want of proper agents to carry it into effect ? ™ r , *• FANNING .

HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SEV -ERAL BREEDS OF SHEEP . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SEVERAL BREEDS OF SHEEP . ( Continued from page 111 . ) Saxon Merino . —In the year 1765 , Augustus Frederick , elector of Saxony , obtained permission from the Spanish court to import 200 Merinos , selected from the choicest flocks . of Spain . They were chosen principally from the Escurial flock , and on their arrival in Saxony , were placed on a private estate belonging to the elector , under the care of Spanish shepherds . So much importance was attached to the experiment , as it was then considered , that a commission was appointed to superintend the affairs of the establishment ; and it was made its duty to diffuse information in relation to the management of the new breed ; to dispose of the surplus rams at prices which would placethem within the reach of all holders of sheep ; and finall y , by explaining the superior value of the Merinos , to induce the Saxon farmers to cross them with their native breeds .

REGULARITY AND TIME OF MEALS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

REGULARITY AND TIME OF MEALS . I 1 Y 1 EANDER OF NOYAN ; To die Editor of the Prairie Farmer : The time of meals should be regular especially amongst farmers , or those who work out of cloors . Breakfast in the summertime should be as near 6 oclock as possible , for the stomach is then generally empty , and as the morning is the coolest part of the da } , it is for that reason the best time for business , and unless the human bod y is supported with proper nourishment , it will be incapable of performing much labor . And further , if breakfast is eaten late , you seldom , have much appetite for dinner , and therefore , you will bo liable to be very hungry before supper . If you have breakfast at six in the summer time , you will have five hours lime till twelve , which will be short time enough between breakfast and dinner . The more water that you use at meal time , the less you will be obliged to use whilst at work , and I would not recommend an excessive use of water at any time ...

THE STUDY OF MECHANICS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

THE STUDY OF MECHANICS . MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT . JOHN GAGE , Editor . IF a man would be a good mechanic , he must learn his trade well . I would have young men , and apprentices especially , notice the word LEARN ; there is great importance attached to it . Let no day pass without learning some useful thing . Count that day lost whoso west declining sun Views from thy hand no worthy action done . . It is ( he use , or abuse , of that one word ( learned ) that mars or makes the man—the mechanic . Just write in your note-book the old saying Natural born mechanics , and see how it looks , and what it means . It certainly does not mean what it says ; the infant has no mechanical , and scarce any other instinct . Man is born with much less capacity , of body and mind , thaja a horse , or almost any oilier beast . The beast , has but little to learn—man every thing ; h . e , is a progressive being , and has the power within himself to advance his own knowledge and abilities ; his inclinat...
