Crops that can now be Planted . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

Crops that can now be Planted . The seed for crops required to be planted early , is now in the ground , and , we think , doing well . There are some other crops that even now can be made , which will in - crease the quantity of human food , and the sale of which , will fill the farmer s purse . Potatoes can yet be planted . The best crops of potatoes are often those planted late . Have yon any good land left for this crcp ? If so , try and plant it Beans for several years past have-brought high prices , and a good article could scarcely be had ; . They are now worth $ 4 a bushel ! Cant this price be reduced , and still the raising of beans be made profitable ? They produce 20 , 25 , and as high as 30 bushels to the acre . One dollar a bushel will , in a goud season ,, pay a profit to the farmer for raising them . New land on which wheat was winter killed , would be capital for beans . All who can would do well to plant if not a field , a good patch . Turnips are a good crop for man...

«« - The Chinese Sugar Cane , & c . A few days ago wa * had an interesting interview with Mr . Hedges , of Cincinnati , ( of the firm of Hedges & Scott , ) who is at this time getting np mills for expressing the juice from the Chinese sugar cane , and boilers for converting the juice into sugar and molasses . Mr . Hedges informed us that his mills will cost from fifty to two hundred dollars , and his boilers ( if we recollect right ) five cents per pound . These are to be of cast iron . Mr .

England and America on the Turf . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

England and America on the Turf . We learn from Porter s Spirit of the Times that Lecompte , Pryor , and Prioress , the three gallant coursers which were sent from this country last Fall , to confront the renowned champions of the English Turf upon their own ground , and at their own terms , are entered for the Great Goodwood Cup ! This great trial of speed comes off on the 29 th of July , and at the latest advices , the American horses are in excellent condition . It is hardl y necessary to add that the eyes of the whole sporting world of America are turned upon Mr . Ten Broek and the gentlemen engaged with him in this grand national affair .

Drilling vs . Broadcast Sowing . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

Drilling vs . Broadcast Sowing . We have heard the question often asked , whether there would be any advantage in sowing spring grains with the drill , over the old plan of sowing them broadcast . We have published two communications asking information on the subject . We find the following article in the Country Gentleman , which is directly to the point : Having noticed a number of different opinions in regard to drilling and broadcasting , I am willing to give my opinion on this subject . I purchased , in company with a neighbor , a drill of J . M . Harvey & Son s manufacture , Amsterdam , N . Y . ( J . P . Ross patent . ) In the spring of 1855 , the first sowing was a piece of spring wheat . Not knowing anything about the drilling . system , I sowed part with the drill and part broadcast in the same field and on the same day . That put in with a drill was more than a quarter better than that sown broadcast , both in straw and grain . I tried my oats in the same manne...

The Imported Stoct . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

The Imported Stoct . Our readers are aware that Messrs . Brown , Johns and Jacoby , as agents for the Illinois Stock Importing Association , have been absent several months in England , purchasing different kinds . They have completed their purchases and we may expect the gentlemen named , and the stock purchased , to arrive in this city in a few days . We find a very satisfactory communication in relation to the stock purchased , in a letter from London , published in the Missouri Republican of the 3 d instant . That letter says : — I but speak the concurrent testimony of all cowpetentf judges , who have seen their herd , that they are shipping , for the number , the best and choicest lot of stock that has ever been exported from this country into the United States . I am well aware that this is taking very high ground , but I am . perfectly willing toabide the judgment of the stock growers of Illinois and the surrounding country , upon their inspection of the stock , after it shal...

Remedy for Sweney . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1857

Remedy for Sweney . In the Rural American , a correspondent says sweney in horses is not a complaint seated in the shoulder , but is caused by some disease elsewhere . From my experience I think otherwise . I-have a horse which was lame , and getting lamer : for upwards of two years , till it became unpleasant to drive him off of a walk . Asecret mixture given me —( formed , I judge , principally of stimulating or irritating oils)—I had rubbed on the place daily , and omitted for two or three days when the part became tender , and lard rubbed oninstead , to prevent the hair coming off ; then the irritant renewed . In about three weeks the horse was cured , andis free from lamenes - w . T . L .

The Season . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

The Season . In the month of May the weather was unusually cool . It suited the spring grains , but not the corn . Indeed much of the corn ground remained unplanted on the first of June ; but the ground was in good order , and if planted by the 10 th June we feel quite sure , of a good crop . At this writing the spring sown wheat and barley look well . r Early planted potatoes have come up finely , and some farmers are already plowing their corn . Spring weather very fairly commenced on the 7 th , —about fourteen days before the longest day in the year ; but with warm weather and seasonable rains , crops sown or planted in spring , in this section of the State will be good . But few crops can now be put into the ground for harvesting the coming fall . Buckwheat can be sown as late as the middle of the present month , and it has yielded sown as late as August . Buckwheat pays well in favorable years , and makes a capital article of food . Rnta Baga turnips can now be sown , and they ...

Comets . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Comets . Comets have been much talked of within the last few months . Oar cold spring has been laid to the influence of one of those wandering bodies which it was said would come near the earth about the middle of last month . The expected visitant has , however , not appeared to unaided , vision , and some who profess to know , say he will soon be out of the reach of the telescope . The interest , however , which exists on the subject of comets ,, will render the fol * lowing historyLof thfeirjopearanee-in -past time worth perusing . We find it in several literary periodicals without credit . At the time of the birth of Mithradates , One hundred and thirty years before Christ , we have an account of a comet whose magnitude must have been far beyond anything subsequently seen , as its splendor is said to have surpassed that of the sun . In the years two hundred and forty-eight , three hundred and twenty-four , and three hundred and ninety-nine of the Christian era , remarkable comet...

Mrs . Gage in Illinois , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Mrs . Gage in Illinois , From the Ohio Cultivator . New Towns in the West—Enterprise ., Thrift and Fertility . I am in Lincoln , Illinois , the county seat of Logan , for the purpose of lecturing to the people on education and kindred ^ subjects . Lincoln is on the line of the St . Lonis , Alton and Chicago Railroad . The land hereabout is a dead level , stretching off to the horizon , with scarce shrub or tree to relieve the weary eye . Three years ago last September , I passed here , and not a permanent house , if I remember rightly , graced the waving green . A few shanties , built for the railroad operators , gave all the sign of home life that could be seen . Here we took stage for Bloomington . Now there is a right smart village , and it gave ma a larger andience than I could dare to expect to gather together in Columbus , Ohio . Five really neat churches , one in process of erection—churches , some of them with a style of architecture that would do credit to any town or villa...

to The Hone and Ms Improvement . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

to The Hone and Ms Improvement . It is not possible for a ^ iy one desoribe in advance , the size , form , or particular conformation of parts in the horse , best suited to the fine development of the foal , unless those peculiarities of the mare are carefully considered ; and hence the absolute necessity of attention and study on the part of every individual who attempts to breed animals . The experience , suggestions , and practices of the most successful , are not sufficient guides to insure success to those who rely on them alone . What man has done , man may do , and more ; but although in . dealing with inorganic matters—chemistry , for instance—any given experiment may be described , and repeated by others , with almost infinitessimal exactness , there are such a multitude of ever-varying influences modifying all the operations of animal life , that it becomes a necessity to study those influences and their relations , and then to manage them as they occur . And now that the ...

••• Wheat and its Enemies . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

••• Wheat and its Enemies . When the enemies of the wheat crop are so prevalent , with a prospect of increase , let our friends take a few timely hints . There is no known remedy for the depredations of fly , chinch-bug , joint-worm , & c ; but we think experience will bear witness that there is a grand preventive in good cultivation . A vigorous and thrifty growth successfully resists , when the most promising appliances are powerless before , their ravages . And not only so , but throughout nature it will be found that where there is least power of resistance , the subtle enemy is most likely to make his attacks . It is not the sound and healthy , those who have enjoyed wholesome atmosphere and good food , who are swept off by epidemics , but those whose constitutions , enfeebled by any canse , predispose them , as we aptly say , to disease . The sleek and well-kept animal is not troubled with lice , when they swarm upon the ill-fed , ill-conditioned beast . And the en...

Prize Essay on Hens and Hen Houses [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Prize Essay on Hens and Hen Houses For the Premium offered by the Union Society of Va . and North Carolina BY MRS . CATHARINE GREEN , OF DINW 1 DDIE . In view of successful fowl raising , first—due regard should be observed as to the hen house , roosts , nest and hovels . My hen house is 10 by 12 feet , built of pine poles ; my roosts are supported by four forks , driven in the ground , and pine poles extended from one to the other . My boxes or nests are made of plank , 12 inches wide , with partitions 12 inches apart , giving each nest one foot each way . They are also supported by forks , say about three feet long , driven into the ground , taking particular care that neither roosts nor nest should have any connection with the house . This prevents the lice , should there be any , from sheltering in the logs or roof , the house answering only for protection to the fowls . In the spring , the house , roosts and nests should receive a coat of white-wash , and at intervals , say abo...

Prairie Breaking ; Small , vs . Large Farms ; Magnlfieent Fanning with small Comforts ; Draft of Breaking Flows ; what Teams to use . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Prairie Breaking ; Small , vs . Large Farms ; Magnlfieent Fanning with small Comforts ; Draft of Breaking Flows ; what Teams to use . To the new settler , Prairie Breaking is enveloped in a cloud of fog . He has no data but guess work , and finally , concludes his span of nags must be turned oat to grass , and a long string of oxen and steers purchase ! , or the job lee out to some native of the prairie , who has had ample practice with the long whip , and which requires almost . as much expertness as in the driving of a team of dogs among the hummocks of the arctic ice . In the northern counties , the prairie team is seldom seen , and the ordinary farm team does the breaking . The tramping out of prairie grass weakens the turf and facilitates the process . But here in central Illinois , the Mae grass soon makes a tougher sod than the ordinary prairie grass , and here too the red root , that aaomlous plant , whose root is like solid oak , and top of annual herbaceous growth , is fou...

How to Break Brush Land . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

How to Break Brush Land . From the Freeport Journal . - I have a small farm , and farm it upon rather a small scale , but I find that a little land well tilled , is better than a large farm not half cultivated . About five years ago I commenced making my improvements on eighty acres of what is called Brush land ; which is very difficult to plow on account of the roots and grubs . My manner of plowing such land is this : In the first place I cut the brush and saplings all off as near the ground as possible , particularly the hazle and sumach , with a brnsh scythe . The larger saplings I cut with an axe—grubbing nothing . I then take a good stout shovel plow , stoutly stocked , sufficiently strong for two horses , and having a good strong coulter or cutter , inserted through the beam of the plow and extending down within an inch of the nose or point of the shovel , and about half an inch below , to keep the shovel from getting under the roots . The coulter should be made of bar iron t...

Hints to Horse-dealers . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Hints to Horse-dealers . From the Boston PoBt , June 9 . Tompkins bought a fine hors epaid § 300 for him . The horse after a few months proved to be lame in the right shoulder . Tompkins was distressed about it . Tried all sorts of remedies of embrocations , liniments , Mustang included , under the advice of the very best veterinaries , still the lameness was obstinate , and grew rather worse . He became desperate , and hit upon this ^ device to sell the horse . He drove a tenpenny nail plump into the right fore foot , and left it there for ten days ; when he led the tortured animal limping to a neighboring blacksmith to be shod . The blacksmith was a dealer in horses and quite a jockey in his way . After a while Tompkins called at the shop for his horse . Thats a splendid gelding of yours Mr . Tompkins ; pity he is so lame , says the blacksmith . He is indeed replied Tompkins but he is very lame , and 1 am afrain he cant be cured . Perhaps not , and may be he can , says Vulcan . Ho...
