HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

HORTICULTURAL Planting Trees . BY KOBERT I > . BELL . No man should undertake to plant a tree unless he has judgment enough to know the character of the tree he desires to move ; some have roots similar to a sponge , and contain water enough in store to subsist oh till the proper fibres are grown to sustain them ; such , for instance , as that curse of our conntry , the Alianthus , ( which is a greater nuisance than the Canada Thistle , and never could be sold until the importer called it the Tree of Heaven , and raised the pjice from one shilling to one dollar each , by which scheme he made in one year $ 6 ,- 000 . ) the Paulonia , Imperialis , Willow , Catatpa , and half a dozen Poplars . A dozen maples , half a dozen evergreens , the ash and horse chestnut roots , are very thick and fleshy , and contain considerable moisture , enough , in fact , to sustain them through much dry weather , after being removed , and therefore do not snffer half as much as the beech , birc...

THE GARDENER [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

THE GARDENER Dints for Gardeners . Cultivate nothing carelessly . Whatever is worth cultivating at all , is worth cultivating diligently and well . ¦ Many ; kinds of garden seeds lose their germinating power when more than a year old . Therefore , be careful to BOW fresh seed whenever practicable . But ; melons , cucumbers , pumpkins , and members generally of this family , are an exception to this rule- The seeds of these should not be sown till after they are several years old . The seeds of most kinds of weeds retain their germinating power for an almost indefinite period . Hence , weeds should always be carefully gathered and burnt , as the most effectual mode of destroying the seeds . The first leaves which appear on the surface ( in many cases called cotyledons , ) are for the time , sole supporters of the life of the young plant , —sustain it till it has formed -roots , and , if prematurely destroyed or much injured , the plant will die . Seeds-will not germinate unless expos...

Cattle Plague on the Continent of Europe . There is a o * ttle plague now in Germany . Measures have been takes both in England and France to proventits importation into their respective countries . It has destroyed vast numbers of cattle . The disease and its progress in the neighborhood of Mecklenburg is thus described : From the taking , or first attack of the disease , till its breaking out , seven days generally elapse , during which the cattle attacked are at times more dull , at times more lively than usual .

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

HYGIENE . Sleep , Its Physiological Use , Just when all the animals , except a few , retire to rest , when all the useful laborers of every class have finished the- labors of the day , the votaries of fashion begin the toils of the night , and like , the flies and moths , that are woke and roused up by the splendor of chandeliers , they buzz around the objects of their admiration and worship , until they are exhausted . Even the pauper patient at our hospitals , enjoys sleep—whereas the lady , whose income counts by thousands , can not have one nights good sleep . Oh ! ye poor rich ! Almost all headaches arise from deficient circulation in the brain ; and nothing is so beneficial , nay , so absolutely requisite , as plenty of sound sleep . The remedy for Tic . Douloureux , or Neuralgia , is sleep . One good night s sleep is of more use to a cough , than any remedy of the entire materia medica . If , on taking cold , as it is called , we can lie down , wrap up warm , and sleep , our ...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

MISCELLANEOUS From Dwight s Journal of Music The Preaching of the Trees . At midnight hour , when silence reigns , Through all the woodland spaces . Begin the bushes and the trees , To wave and whisper in the breeze , All talking in their places . The Rose-bush flames with look of joy , And perfume breathes in glowing ; A Rose s life is quickly past ! Then let me , while my time shall lost , Be richly , gaily blowing ? The ABpen whispers , Sunken day ! Not ma thy glare deceiveth ! Thy sunbeam is a deadly dart , That quivers in the Rose s heart—My shuddering soulitgrievethl The slender Poplar speaks , and seems To stretch her green hands higher ; > Up yonder life s pure river flows , So sweetly murmurs , brightly glows , To that I still aspire ! The Willow looks to earth and speaks : My arm to fold thee yearneth : I let my hair float down to thee : Entwine there in thy flowers for me : As mother her child adornethl And next the wealthy Plum-tree sighs : • Alas ! my treasur...

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

EDITORIAL NOTICES The Season as it Progresses . All the great interests of community depend upon the productions of the soil . In Illinois we more sensibly realize this fact than in , perhaps , any other portion of the country . Hence on the opening of spring there is a nervousness and anxiety among farmers and business men in regard to forthcoming crops . Last spring the public were astounded when the fact became apparent that the whole immense sowing of wheat in Central Illinois , was lost—that the sown wheat would not produce a tenth part of the seed to sow on the same wheat grounds the ensuing fall . But most farmers went to work immediately and procured spring wheat , and sowed it where winter wheat had been killed—not enough to cover all the grounds devoted to winter wheat , but sufficient , if it does well , to produce nearly as mnch wheat as was raised in the country the year previous . The present spring wheat crop now has a fine appearance , and if nothing should injurious...

— ; <•» r-. The Time of Trial . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

— ; &amp;lt;•» r-. The Time of Trial . With farmers , now is the time of trial . The duties of the farm require constant attention—the labor of the hands and the labor of the head . Crops are to be secured ; corn is to be cared for , the plow must be kept going ; the grass is to be cut- and the hay put into stack ; preparations must be made for fall seeding ; the farmer s eyes must be every where , his labors every where , and all this must be done coolly , calmly , steadily , until all these objects are accomplished . A farmer , performing his work in this manner , will accomplish far more , and with greater comfort to himself and those around him , than one who do every thing by fits and jerks , talking large , planning large , and the result of which is half crops , poor stoek ,- poor comforts around him and poor every thing . The farmer should ever recollect the sentiment of Poor Richard : He that Dy the plow would thrive , Must either hold himself or drive . * j @ We are se...

"Doing Good . " An old farmer of Sugar Grove said to us : [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Doing Good . An old farmer of Sugar Grove said to us : Your Farmer is doing good . I found my wheat , 200 acres , winter killed . I took your advice , did not grieve about it , did not spend any time complaining ; went to work , bought spring wheat and spring barley for seed , sowed over the whole land , and I verily believe that I shall make more money by my spring wheat and spring barley , than I would have done if my winter grain had lived . My spring wheat looks well , and my barley I believe will yield more than fifty bushels to the acre . My fields are beautiful . I never had so fine a prospect for crops . Some of my neighbors followed my example , and they have fine prospect , — Others delayed , sowed no spring grains , rented out their lands , and I am afraid will see hard times next winter . Give me your hand , old friend , I must be going . This was the language of truth : and those farmers who went to work at once in the spring , when they discovered their wheat was kille...

>* . , — Pie Plant . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

&amp;gt;* . , — Pie Plant . MR . EDITOR : —I see lately every time I go to town , large quantities of pie plant exposed for sale at some of the stores , and have lately eaten it , made up into fruit puddings and tarts , and found it a most agreeable and to me a healthy article of food . I would be glad to know how I am to get the plants and how , when I do get them , they are to be grown so as to furnish a good supply of the stalks . This information here called for may be useful to many of your . readers besides MYSELF , We have often stated the manner of obtaining the plant andbf growing it . The best kinds are propagated by cuttings from roots of approved varieties . Get roots in the spring and separate them so as to preserve a bud on each piece of root , and plant these buds out about three or four feet apart in the richest soil possible . If the soil is not rich , make it so by mixing it with a large supply of well rotted manure ; and afterwards , when growing , if you wish...

Drill Seeding . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

Drill Seeding . In putting in fall gram , the fact is now well established that the drilling system is by far the best . It puts the seed in to an even depth ; it puts it at the right depth j the plants of seed put in the drill are not likely to be winter killed ; the cropjis greater , more even and uniform ; three pecks of wheat drilled in will seed theground better than five peckssowed broadcast . To be successful in drill seeding , the ground should be well prepared ; plowed , to a good depth , and not be filled with weeds and trash , which would seriously interrupt the progress of the drill .

High Price of Beef . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

High Price of Beef . There has been a meeting in Philadelphia to consider whether means could be adopted to reduce the price of beef , so as to place it within the means of the masses . It was said at the meeting that the people of Baltimore had an agent west , to purchase beef , and the result had been that the price in Baltimore had been reduced to $ 10 3 T per 100 lbs . net . There was much discussion , but ho plan agreed upon . One individual recommended the purchase of beef cattle in South America , to be shipped to Philadel phia and New York .. They conld be purchased in the corral at $ 1 and $ 2 per head . To this it was replied , that the eattle wonld not fatten here and the beef would be poor . The prospect is that . Philadel phia and New York will continue to receive supplies as at present . _ -,- l

The Wheat Crop in the West . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1857

The Wheat Crop in the West . The wheat crop in the Great West , as a general thing , promises to-be great beyond precedent . We do not believe that wheat will be worth more in market in July next than it was in the same month one year ago . In Central Illinois it will probably be higher—because here we have no winter wheat , and the wheat for seed , which will be required the coming fall , will be immense and must be brought from a distance . Within the two last weeks the demand for flour in Eastern cities , for transportation , has sensibly decreased ;—and whether there will be a greater demand thsn now will depend upon crops in Prance and the British Islands . THE PRICE OP WOOL . —The better qualities of wool are selling readily for a trific more than they brought last year . We would urge our readers to bo in no hurry to dispose of their clips at less than last year s rates . We quote the market in Springfield steady at 30 to 47 cents per pound for common to full blooded Merino ....

Agriculture of the Natives in Early Times [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1857

Agriculture of the Natives in Early Times We do not expect to learn much of value from the agriculture of the natives of this country at an early date , but the subject has some interest for the general reader . When the northern part of the country now known as the United States , was discovered , it was found that the natives cultivated corn , to some extent , probably about as much as the Indians of the Upper Missouri and Mississippi do at the present day . They did not aim to procure their subsistence from the grain of this plant ; but . only raised it to a small extent , by the labors of the women , as a luxury , and the maturity of which was generally announced by the green corn dance . In the southern part of the country , however , considerable crops of different articles were raised as food , and the Indians themselves , it is said , were delighted with the labors of the field . Of course ( in the words of Frederick Kidder . ) their efforts were not to be compared with thos...

The Grain Crops . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1857

The Grain Crops . A good or bad crop of grain in the United States , in a given year , affects the markets of the world . A great foreign demand in a bad crop year stimulates prices , and makes the article of bread a dear food to all classes of our people . Hence it is for these and other reasons that the masses regard the grain crop as a subject of great importance to them , and hence they watch with great solicitude the developements of the crops through the year . We are constrained to believe that the wheat crop will be a more than an average yield the present year . In some localities the winter crop may have been winter killed , but taking the whole country together the yield will be better than usual . The effect of this fact is already felt in the markets . Flour has already fallen in Cincinnati to $ 6 50 per barrel , and the price of wheat is going down . . Even here , where the winter crop has failed , winter wheat at this time is not worth more than $ 1 30 , and we appreh...

THE GRAZIER [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1857

THE GRAZIER From Porters Spirit of the Times . The American Horses in England . Mr . Ten Broeck has thought fit to enter two ofthe American horses , viz , PryOr and Pryoress , for races to be run at the York August meeting , commencing on Wednesday , the 19 th of that month , or three weeks subsequent to the conclusion of the Goodwood gathering , whence they will have to be sent per railroad upwards of three hundred miles . Prioress alone is entered for the first event , namely , the Chesterfield Handicap . For the second , the Great Ebor Handicap , ( Ebor being the ancient name of the City of York , ) both Pry or and Prioress are named . We cannot but express our surprise that Mr . Ten Broeck should have ventured to enter the American horses for any English handicap race—or entrust the weighing of them to any English handicapper . Our readers are , by this time familiar with the method adopted of affixing such weights to each ntJrse entered , as will , in the opinion of the handica...

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1857

AGRICULTURAL . The Proper Time for Cntting Timothy . BY JABED P . KIRTLAND , 1 £ . I ) . The proper time for cutting timothy meadows , with reference to securing the best qualities of hay , has been a fruitful subject of observation and remark . Little or no attention has been paid to the influence of the time and maimer of cutting , over the health , permanency and productiveness of such meadows . A vague idea prevails , among farmers , that if the mowing be performed before the seed of this species of grass is ripe , it will run out , from a failure to re-seed the ground . Every observing farmer has noticed that , in some . instances , extensive tracts of timothy sward have suddenly died , soon after the removal of the crop of hay , while , in others , the sward continued healthy , and for a series of years produced abundantly of this grass . The rationale of such opposite results , under apparently similar circumstances , had never been explained , so far as my information extend...
