AGE OF HORSES BY THEIR TEETH . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1841

AGE OF HORSES BY THEIR TEETH . From the London Library of Useful Knowledge . The mouth of the horse at five years old contains forty teeth , viz : six nippers or eutiing teeth in front , a tush , and six molars , or grinding teeth , on each side , above and below ; they are contained in cavities in the upper and lower jaws , surrounded by bony partitions , to which they are accurately fitted , and by which they are firmly supported . For a little way above these bony cavities , they are surrounded by a hard substance called the gum , so dense , indeed , and adhering so closely to the teeth and the jaws , as not to be separated without very great difficulty ; singularly compact , that it may not be wounded by the hard or sharp particles of the food , and almost devoid of feeling , for the same purpose . Seven or eig ht months before tho foal is born , the germs or beginnings of the teeth are visible in the cavities of the jaws . The tooth grows , and presses lo the surface of the gum...

Now in the commencement it will boon easy matter to give our products a high standing in market ; and with a little pains in tho manufacture of butter , for instance , lhat sent from this seclion would be as eagerly sought- at Goshen butter . It is - of vastly more importance lo tho farmers themselves , that their products in the distant market should boar a high price , and bo known to be well made , than most of them suppose .

USEFUL RECIPES . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 July 1841

USEFUL RECIPES . SAVING SBBD . —Every attentive observer will remark among the plants of almost every kind ol crop some individual stalks are distinguished from the others by o greater degree of health or luxuriance , or productiveness , or earliness , or some other peculiarity . A friend of mine remarked , some years ago , n porticular stem of peas omong his earliest crop , which came inlo flower ond ripened lon « before the others . He marked this stem and saved tho whole of its produce for seed . These come as -swoh earlier as they hud originally done .

ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SYSTEMATIC CULTIVATION . Hate not laborious works , nor the husbandry which tho MOST HIGH has created . —BiMc , Agriculture is the oldest art of which we have any account . It was the occupation chosen by God for the first man , Adam . By it nations and communities are kept together . It is the bond of union that unites all society .
