Experiments with the Chinese Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Experiments with the Chinese Sugar Cane . From the Scientific American . MESSRS . EDITOBS—Knowing that you take a deep interest in anything which promises to be valuable for our country , I send you the result of an experiment which I made with the Chinese Sugar Millet—Sorgum Saccharatum . Having received from the Patent Office a paper of the seed , I planted it as a matter of curiosity , though not having the least confidence that it would prove to be worth anything . The seeds and stalks so nearly resembled our common broom corn as to make me feel quite sure they were . I planted it in hills about two and a half feet apart , with from six to ten seed in a hill . It was greatly neglected during its growth , from an impression of its worthless ness . Some time in August there was a chance frost which nearly terminated its growth , and , in fact , completely destroyed some sweet corn growing in the same garden . The millet was just putting forth its seed stalk , and the seed was , co...

4 «» , from the New York Tribune . . ' * A Threatened Money Crisis . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

4 «» , from the New York Tribune . . * A Threatened Money Crisis . We are heavily in debt to Europe . Our city merchants and bankers owe those of Great Britain ; the country owes the cities ; , the farmers owe the merchants—in short , two thirds of us are in debt . To owe no man anything is not the rule , but the exception . The bare interest on our foreign debt is a heavy item in our annual outgoes . The tariff reduction , which takes effect in July , will inundate us with more goods , goods even though we do not order them . ¦ ¦ i We may not be able to pay off much this year , but let us resolve to go in debt no further . : Let us stem the current this year , that we maybe able to roll it back thereafter . And , as our foreign debt is mainly made up of the debts of companies and individuals , let us sternly resolve that we will , individually and corporately , go in debt no further . It is high time that we recognized and enforced the sound old maxim of pay as you go . T- : : «•» ...

THE GABDENEE [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

THE GABDENEE Seeds for early vegetables should now be in the ground—lettuce , radishes , cress , onion seed and setts , peas , beets , parsnips , early cabbage , celery , spinach , and some others . The ground should be well shaded , and finely pulverized , and the seed should be sown carefully , not too thick , and should be properly covered . The larger seeds can be planted deeper than the smaller and lighter seed . Farmers , if they choose , can sew peas broadcast , cover them well , and they will produce good crops . Even the Champion of England , Blue Prussian and Marrowfats , will produce well when sown broadcast , or what would be better , drilled into the ground . Some early corn may be planted . Attention to the garden will pay our farmers well . BSpIf a spoonful of yeast will raise fifty cents worth of flour , how much will it take to raise funds enough to buy another barrel ?

THE POULTRY YARE [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

THE POULTRY YARE Poultry . Nearly every family can , with very little trouble , have eggs in plenty during the whole year ; and of all the animals domesticated for the use of man , the common dunghill fowl is capable of yielding the greatest profit to the owner . The Heri-House should be warm in winter , well ventilated in summer , whitewashed and kept clean . Roosts of sassafras poles are less infested with lice . Have no ground floor . Supply slacked lime , fine gravel or ashes , or burnt oyster shells , &amp;amp; c . Feeding . —They will sing over Indian corn with more animation than any other grain . The hen must have secrecy and mystery about her nest , watch her , and she will forsake her nest and stop laying . [ This is not always the case . We have known hens to come into the kitchen , when permitted , and lay upon the mats , or in the wood-box . ] They eat less , if allowed to help themselves to what they want , than if fed in the usual way , for , in the latter case , ...

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

EDITORIAL NOTICES BgfThe attention of the reader is invited to two valuable articles in the first pages of this number of the Farmer , —from the Plow , Loom and Anvil—the first headed , American Farmers , and the other , On the means of securing the advantages of Climate , from Hovey s Magazine . Chinese Sugar Cane . The time is fast approaching for putting in the seed of this new plant , and a few remarks in regard to planting , &amp;amp; c , will be in season . The seed can be planted from the period when we commence corn planting until June . Those who design to grow any considerable quantity for the manufacture of syrup , should so plant that the canes will mature from late in August until they are killed by frost . Even after heavy frost the juice will make syrup , though as with the Louisiana cane , it may not make sugar . We do hope that our farmers will thoroughly experiment with this plant the present season , so that they will be ready with seed and experience to go mo...

Illinois Soils . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Illinois Soils . Mr . D . D . Owen , State Geologist of Kentucky , made a report to . the Legislature of that State ; while in session last winter , one of the principal objects of which seemed to be to depreciate the value of the soils of Illinois . He had made an analysis of a specimen of soil from Hancock county and comparing it with some soils of Kentucky , he came to the conclusion that the soils of Illinois would soon wear out by cultivation , while those of Kentucky would not ; and on this basis he urged the people of Kentucky not to emigrate to the State of -illinois , if they regarded their future welfare . The Corresponding Secretary of the Illinois State Agricultural Society drew the attention of Dr . J . G . Norwood , Geologist for Illinois , to this matter , and deeming the subject important , by circular he communicated with many distinguished citizens of our State , and asked them to give their experience in regard to the lasting qualities of the soils of Illinois . W...

"Stick to the Old . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Stick to the Old . So said an old fogy farmer . He did not think where this doctrine would carry him . It would prevent all improvement . If practiced 2 , 000 years ago and from thence down , we should be now clothed with skins and live in holes in the earth . For such was the case with our British ancestors , when Caesar invaded Britain . In this country , almost every article of vegetable food is exotic ; wheat , rye , oats , barley , buckwheat ; and so of other things , cotton , indigo ; indeed , we are indebted to other countries for the most valuable articles , ! we enjoy in this . The world is a stage of improvement . He who does not catch the spirit of the age , will find himself in the back ground . There are doubtless humbugs in the world . We may try all and hold fast to that which is sure . The cultivation of the potatoe was once called a humbug , and the beet and the cabbage . Indeed , the writer of this paragragh though not an octogenarian , recollects when a very small...

White Beans as a Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

White Beans as a Crop . Mr . Editor : —Much of the land on which wheat has been killed out will bring good crops of white beans . They can be grown on sod-land broken last summer , and which is now clean and in good order . If drilled in the crop would be most certain , but even if sown broadcast , and covered by harrowing , and the land rolled , they would be likely to do well . Fifteen bushels an acre would not be a large crop , and they have been selling from last fall to this . spring at from $ 2 to $ 3 50 per bushel . If raised largely , I do not believe they would by any possibility be lower than $ 1 SO per bushel . The small Yankee bean would do best on the poorest laud . For richer lands it would be well to plant larger beans , which would make strong stalks , and would not be so likely to fall and injure the beans . There is the navy bean , larger than the Yankee bean ; the marrowfat bean , or white cranberry ; and the royal white kidney . All these produce well and the bea...

Spring Management of Sheep . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1857

Spring Management of Sheep . A . Nichols , of Westfield , New York , gives the following article on the subject in the Genesee Farmer : Great care must be taken with sheep in the spring . They should be driven to shelter from every cold storm ; grain must be given to them until the pastures get good ; ., they must have salt once a week during the whole summer ,, and once in two weeks during the winter .. About the first of June in this latitude , or in the south in April or May , according to the climate , the sheep must be washed in running water until clean , recollecting that the water must be warm enough to make the men , standing in it to wash the sheep , sweat at their work ; if colder , it is abasing both men and sheep . As soon as dry , or in about one week , they mast be shorn by good hands , who do not get angry and handle them roughly while shearing them . The fleece should be folded up , flesh side out , very neatly and packed in close , clean bins or boxes , until dispo...

m . — Education of Farmers . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

m . — Education of Farmers . There is a capital weekly paper published at Richyiew , in Southern Illinois . The last number has a communication on the subject of Education for Farmers . We cut the following from that communication : Law , Divinity and Medicine have each their scores of colleges and seminaries ; but theTarmerj upon whbm all r are : dependent for subsistence , and who has more invested in fences , alone , than the entire professions in the country have invested in professions , houses , lands and all , has not even one school devoted to his exclusive interests . It has been the commonly received opinion that any one will d p for a farmer . If a boy is so dull that he cannot acquire a professional education , and has no turn for a mechanic , he is turned over to the farm as the last resort- So the paramount interest — -thatinpori which every other depends , is not deemed worthy of even a medium talent of the country .

¦»» • Drilling in Spring Grains . Editor Farmer : lam satisfied that the opinion among farmers is in favor of drilling in the seed of winter grains . The crops are less likely to be winter killed , are more uniform in their growth , and yield more grain to the acre . I do not think that there can be any doubts upon these points . Bnt is there any advantage in drilling in spring grains—wheat , rye , barley , oats ? I have in vain inquired of my neighbors . Have any of your readers experience in this matter ? If they have , they would greatly oblige the writer . by communicating the same for publication in your paper . A .
