IOWA . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

IOWA . IT was our intention , in a recent tour we made , lo have gone entirely through Iowa , visiting each county . But circumstances rendering a return home necessary , we only saw Des Monies ,. Lee , Van Buren , Jefferson ; Louisa , Muscatine , and Scott , in their order , crossing the Mississippi at Burlington and re-crossing at Davenport . We were so much pleased with what we saw , however , and found so general au interest manifested in the success of the Prairie Farmer , that we shall return to complete the tour at an early day . Our chief object was to ascertain llie feelings of the Hawkeye farmers towards this paper ; and , by seeing the postmasters and a few other friends who mi ght interest themselves in extending its circulation , to secure a large and permanent increase of its subscription list . Wc saw many who have subscribed heretofore , and it was gratifying and encpuraging to learn the paper gave so general satisfaction . „ It is reasonable to expect they will next...

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT A SYSTEM ; OF CQMJUON SCHOOLS ; THE arrangement of a system that , shall supply to all our citizens the means of obtaining a good common-school education is a subject upon which we have bestowed many thoughts . : The rrioreit is dwelt upon , the more difficult it appears , and the more indispensable to unite in consultation upon it , the wisdom and experience of all who take an interest in the momentous subject . To say that we have digested alpla n , perfectly satisfactory even to us , we cannot ; much less , can we expect it to be beyond improvement at the hands of those who , while they are as deeply interested in the matter as ourself , are possessed of superior advantages for informing themselves both as to the wants of our population , and the systems in operation elsewhere . AYe shall , however , present the leading features of a plan before us , and at a future time will perhaps go more into detail . Discussiqn , —not too prolix , is our object , and i...

"L . ¦ " HOME INSTRUCTION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

L . ¦ HOME INSTRUCTION . , P * ( Continued . ) No one will contend now that Temperance Societies have done no good ; although thirty years ago but very few had the courage and resolution to step forward and breast the tide of opposition that prevailed against their establishment . It is as confidently asserted , that mothers cannot teach their children at home , will not mothers exert them selves to add their mite to the general good , by endeavoring to improve the morals of the next generation . Will they not contest Willi the champions of Temperance , in the good cause of adding to the sum of human happiness , and lessening the amount of human misery 7 Will not those who arc qualified begin , and set an example for those who are not , that they may be encouraged to make a trial . In the first place they want to be convinced the plan is a good one , and next that it can be carried into oper atidn . Every mother knows with what anxious solicitude she regards a voun-r infant , but th...

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

VETERINARY DEPARTMENT ERRORS IN THE TREATMENT OF HORSES . When a horse shys , or shears , at . some unaccustomed object , and which all young horses will do , never speak sharply , or worse than that , strike him , if you would avoid bis starting the next time he sees the same or any similar object . Almost any horse may be brought to a confirmed habit of shying by such treatment . What sbould w be done , then ? Check him to a walk ; give him time to see the object , and he will soon take little or no notice of it . If a horse stumbles or trips it . is a common practice to strike him for that . This will not mend his habits of tripping and stumbling , but will add to them , if he has spirit , that of springing forward with dangerous quickness whenever it occurs ; as he will expect the lash to follow as a matter of course . The remed y if it can be called one , is to keep an eye urwn the road , and where from stones or iincvenness the failing is apprehended , tighten the reigns and e...

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

COST OF CORN-STALK SUGAR . JOHN S . WRIGHT , ESQ . ; DEAR SIR—An article in your July number , in making comparisons of the cost , : & c , of cultivating sugar cane and corn stalks for sugar , speaks of the great expense of ditching or draining the land on which the cane is cultivated . I suppose this work is done with the spade by slaves— --how , this is a slow way of making ditches , and must necessarily beexpensive at the south or anywhere else w here labor is of any value , but in noting the items of expense , it should be borne in mind that great improvements may be expected to be made in the cultivation ofthe cane , & c , perhaps in manufacturing Sugar front it . While at the east , for nearly a year past , I had opportunity to hear much on the subject of manufacturing sugar , I also procured Mr . Ellsworths valuable pamphlet published last spring , and obtained some useful matter from a gentleman of Troy , N . York , who had given attention , to the su...

™ v ^— REVIEW OF THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST FOR AUGUST . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

™ v ^— REVIEW OF THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST FOR AUGUST . BY JOHN FITZ . THE editor devotes a short article to the subject of earl y sown wheat , contending that wheat at the north should be sown as early as the tenth of September . Wheat sown thus early , he says , is less likely to rust , and is more secure against winter kill . If it grows too rank it should be fed down , late in April or early in May , taking care that the ground is sufficiently dry to prevent poaching . I can fully endorse all this , and remark that every reason which operates there in favor of early sowing , operates here with three times the force . It seems absolutely necessary to make wheat our great crop at present , from the fact that it is more sure of sale , than any other , and yields a quick return ; and the need of our farmers allows them but . small room for experiment , nor will admit of those delays which are necessary or unavoidable in the reform of farming , and the placing it upon its best basis...

; ¦ * , c t » ¦ — -- A FEW HINTS . BY r . MACOWAN . IF any one should find , such a curiosity as P \ Sweat found five years ago , I hope lie will save it and send it to the office of the Prairie Farmer or show it at the annual fair . Patronize your own , by . Abraham Smith , iii the seventh number , is something like ( perhaps better ) what J have longed to do ever since a Will county farmer tried to inculcate the opposite doctrine . I maintain it is not tho best policy for society to buy atthe cheapest and sell at the dearest rate , without any regard as to whether skill and labor have been fairly remunerated . Home Manufactures , by Editor Gage , in the eighth number , is good . I hope the day is not far distant when ready made garments , boots and shoes will not be such a large item of import into Chicago as at . present—also o ! farming utensils . The fewer go-betweens there are , the better it will be for the producing classes , of all denominations . ( t / * In June last we to...

^ v ^^ , r _ RUST IN WHEAT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

^ v ^^ , r _ RUST IN WHEAT . 1 IY A . 11 KACII . To the Editors of the Prairie Farmer : Having made careful observations and formed conclusions as to the cause of rust in whpat , I give you the result ; for whatever truths we discover in the theory of agriculture is of some importance to every farmer in the country . There arc various conjectures in relation to the cause of rust . Some have supposed it was an over-growth of the straw—others that , it was produced b y damp , foggy weather —others again that it is caused by noxious and filthy weeds growing in and about the wheat . Some of these causes may , from some peculiar state of the atmosphere , under some circumstances , produce rust . I believe it to be an established fact that when it arrives immaturity on or about the 25 th of July , it is seldom if ever injured by rust . Whereas wheat arriving at maturity at the approach of the dog-star , so called , and in the old of the moon , when tho nights become cold , when there is p...

SHEEP RAISING IN THE WEST—AGAIN . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

SHEEP RAISING IN THE WEST—AGAIN . THAT wool-growing is to bo a leading interest at the West , no one who has been upon tho ground , and made tho subject one of intelligent observation and inquiry can well doubt . When , however , an idea once finds lodgment in the mind , it . takes some time to displace it ; even after its falsity has been sufficiently shown to satisfy the careful observer . It was an impression somewhat largely shared in , by western men , only three or four years since , that a country so level as Illinois and so warm as much of it is , could not produce wool . This idea was imported from New England , where it so happens that hilly and cold districts are celebrated for woolgrowing . For about three years past , notwithstanding the prevalence of this idea , sheep have been pressing into this section at an enormous rate . This immigration of sheep has been increased largely by tho published success of those who have had experience in the business . Experiments in d...

APPLE CULTIVATION . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

APPLE CULTIVATION . THERE are few subjects now of more interest to us ofthe West than the culture of fruit . If we ever expect to receive any benefit from fruit culture , now is the time to attend to it . The farmers have come into the ownership of their lands , as a general thing , and a few years of cultivation have prepared the soil for the growth of trees—for as far as we have observed young trees of any sort do not do well upon prairie soil without cultivation . Nurseries are so multiplied now that trees can be procured in any desired numbers . Wc have remarked the ^ craordinary thrift of nearly all the young trees wc have seen , and could not tut reflect that if farmers knew how soon they might be in possession of comfortable quantities of choice fruit , they would not neglect to plant trees for another year . It is not onl y desirable that wc should have fruit in sufficient quantities , but the qualities are of the first importance . Most ofthe fruit that reaches the market f...

SETTLEMENT OF THE WEST . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 October 1843

SETTLEMENT OF THE WEST . WE publish below the offer of Mr . ELLSWORTH , to induce settlement on certain lands lying in Indiana and owned by him . The price of the land , it will be seen , is high ; but the teims of payment are easy . The terms arc however slated and others can compute the advantages as well as wc . Among the projects ofthe day is a new mode of settling our western prairies , originated and proposed by Mr . Henry L . Ellsworth , commissioner of the patent office , which is worth y of attention . Mr . Ellsworth owns 15 , 000 acres of prairie land , on the Wabash and Eric canal , in Indiana , which he proposes 1 , 0 dispose of , without cash , on the following terms . —[ Craiofordsvillc Review .

Till : UNION AGRICULTURAL SOCIET 1 AGAIN we desire to draw the attention of our readers residing wilhin the District of ( he U . A . S ., to the necessity of greater exertions in its behalf . Without more united action , and an . increase of members from the many who have heretofore done nothing , and yet have partaken equall y with the few laborers of the pleasures and profits resulting from the organization , it cannot progress with the rapidity the interests of western agriculture demand . There can be no mistake about it ; the successful prosecution of the plan contemplated in the formation of the U . A .
