OUIl FOURTH VOLUME . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

OUIl FOURTH VOLUME . It is not necessary for the sake of our present friends to enter upon any exposition of the claims or objects of the Prairie Farmer . By those who have been our readers hitherto , these are understood and appreciated . There are some , however , to whom this number will come , who are strangers to us—for whoso sake a brief statement of our aims may not be amiss . It is obvious , as one of the first facts which meets the western resident , that in the settlement of a country so unlike the former home of its inhabitants as the West is . to the East and South , in all its features , a style of agriculture somewhat new must be adopted . To this the distant agricultural periodicals , valuable as they might be , wore felt to bo unadapted . Most of them aro in a very great degree dovoted to the renovation of worn-out soils ; and are of too strictly a scientific character to meet our . immediate wants . To supply this defect—to afford a paper which should be an exponent...

ORCHARD AND GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

ORCHARD AND GARDEN COMMENTS ON THIRD VOL . —FRUIT CULTURE . BY F .. S . I .. RICHARDSON . To Ihe Editors of Ike Prairie Farmer : Having lately re-examined the present volume of your paper , I send you a few remarks on some of its contents , under the head of Sundries . On p . 220 you acknowledge the receipt of some seedling apples . I move that the editors of this paper be appointed a fruit committee—that all who raise seedling fruits of any kind shall send samples to this committee , who shall decide whether they are worthy of cultivation ; if so , they shall name the fruit , and get scions for distribution . Who seconds this motion ? P . 109 An Iowa Yankee inquires about the Spanish chesnut—p . 222 Dr . Knapp says it is not so hardy and seems to possess no greater merit as a timber tree than the American species . The Farmer s Enclyclopedia by C . W . Johnston , American edition , p . 321 , says The Spanish or Portugese chesnut ( Castanea Vesca ) succeeds well in the United States...

REVIEW OF THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST FOR OCTOBER * [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

REVIEW OF THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST FOR OCTOBER * BY JOIIS FITZ . No article of domestic use has attracted more attention within a few past years than sugar , and the many modes suggested , and made use of for its production , show ihe place it holds in the family economy . This will not appear strange when one reflects that the cost of supplying an ordinary family with sugar for a year will equal or exceed that of supplying the same family with bread . The difficulty is to find something that will grow in our cool latitude which will produce saccharine in right quantities easy of manufacture . The maple tree , although not quite a desideratum in this respect on account of its slow growth and its dislike of certain light soils , holds an important place in sugar production . Vermont , singular as it may appear , is tbe second sugar producing state in the Union . The article before us in the Agriculturist , says , that its production of this article amounted in 1840 to five and a ha...

HARVESTING WHEAT—AN EXPERIMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

HARVESTING WHEAT—AN EXPERIMENT . BY THEODORE MARKS . To Uie Editors of the Prairie Farmer : I observed in your July number an article headed Proper time for cutting wheat , giving an account of some experiments tried by J . Hannian of Yorkshire , England . I consider his experiments conclusive , as to the propriety of cutting wheat before it is ripe ; but , owing to the great difference of climate , it would not answer to cut as early here as in England . In the latter country , if I mistake not , the thermometer seldom rises higher than 75 ° ; consequently grain ripens very slowly iherc , compared with this country , and requires all the hottest of the weather to bring it to perfection . It appears there is about eight weeks difference in the time of harvesting wheat here and in Yorkshire , and probably grain is as far advanced there a fortnight beforo ripe , as it is here a week . Taking these things into consideration , I concluded to try some experiments myself , for my own sati...

PRIZE ESSAY [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

PRIZE ESSAY THE PREPARATION AND USE OF MANURES . nr wir . tis OAYT . ORD , Associate Editor of the Cultivator ! INTRODUCTION . —Of all the pursuits to which mankind , from necessity and inclination , have devoted themselves , there is none more honorable , —certainly none more useful , —than that of agriculture . To pursue this business successfully , knowledge , extensive and varied , is required ; for . although a man may succeed by following the beaten paths of his predecessors , occasions will frequently arise , when the end desired may be attained b y methods much shorter than those usually adopted , if the farmer is able to form and apply them . It is here that science has , within a few years , rendered the most essential aid to agriculture . Sometimes , reasoning from well known effects to their causes , the agricultural chemist has placed in the hands of the farmer the means of producing results , always desirable , but which , under the older systems of farming , with his ...

NOT TOO MUCH LAND TILLED . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

NOT TOO MUCH LAND TILLED . BY LHANDER . To the Editors of the Prairie Farmer ; SIRS , —I noticed a communication in the September number of your paper , tinder the signature of Prairie Breaker , in which he advances the opinion that the farmers cultivate too much land , he says— after expending much money and time in fencing and breaking , I had little or nothing left to appropriate to what are often considered the little fixings , & c . From such an opinion I shall beg leave to differ . I would ask the author of the communication if the avails of this amount of land or the crops which he raised off it , did not exceed the expense of cultivating , allowing 20 bushels of wheat to the acre , and 50 cents per bushel , which will amount to $ 10 an acre ? I think it will be impossible to make the expense as large as that sum . Now supposing a man comes into this country with only one hundred dollars and makes a claim upon a piece of land , and immediately appropriates his mon...

A NEW YEAR HAS DAWNED . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

A NEW YEAR HAS DAWNED . MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT , JOHN GAGE , Editor . \ L HIS , of all seasons , is the most suitable to reflect upon the past and prepare for the future , to carefully look back at the past year and see if we have done those things that we ought not to have done , and if we have , left undone those things that we ought to have done . We have been practicing from the above precept , and we find that our labors for the year past , in the mechanical department of this paper , seem to be thrown away ; they excite no interest apparently , and we concluded that either the soil was barren or the seed was bad , and that we would at once abandon our p lace . But on taking this retrospective view , we reconcluded to write one more article at least , hoping that the place will soon be better supplied . Let us ask what is the reason we get no communications from mechanics ? Farmers can write and fill one-half of their share of the paper ; and is there not as much to be said on a...

IONIC ORDER . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

IONIC ORDER . ONE of the five orders of architecture , whose distinguishing feature is the volute of its capital . In the Grecian Ipnic the volutes appear the same in the front and rear , being connected on the flanks by a baluster-like form : through the external angles of the capitals of the corner columns . however , a diagonal volute is introduced . The Romans gave their Ionic four diagonal volutes , and curved the sides of the abacus . The Greek volute continues the fillet of the spiral along the face of the abacus , whereas in the Roman its origin is behind the ovolo . In some Grecian speci mens a neck is added below the echinus , sculptured with flowers and leaves . The height of the column is about nine diameters , and the base varies considerably in different examples . When a pedestal is used it is somewhat higher and more ornamental than the Doric pedestal . The Greeks usually made the entablature of this order very simple . The architrave has two facim , the frieze plain...

ON IRON AND STEEL . NO' III . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

ON IRON AND STEEL . NO III . BY THOMAS GILL . On hardening and tempering Springs at one operation . —This is particularly applicable to . springs made of steel wire , or of sheet steel ; and is found to render them considerably more elastic , and less liable to crack in hardening , than by the usual process . It is effected in the followingmanner : —The springs are heated to the proper degree for hardening , in a crucible , placed in a proper furnace ; and , instead of being quenched in oil or water , they are plunged into a metallic bath , kept over another furnace , at a heat a little below their tempering point , which is ascertained by means of a pyrometer immersed in the bath ; and thus they are not cooled entirely , as in the ordinary methods ( which renders them exceedingly liable to craek in hardening , ) but only to their proper tempering degree . The metal for- the bath may be plumbers solder , or any other alloy of tin and lead , which is capable of fusing , at or a littl...

SPIRIT OF THE AGRICULTURAL PRESS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

SPIRIT OF THE AGRICULTURAL PRESS . Cranberries , —We have had several inquiries addressed to us lately asking for specific directions for the culture of this fruit . As apropos , in the Massachusetts Ploughman we find the following : The vines can be easily transplanted , and the task would not be Herculean to fill up an acre of soft meadow with plants enough for the whole . Were we to engage in this business , we would use sharp spades and take up sods six or eight inches square , from meadows where the vines are already too thick . About 2000 of these would be enough for an acre ; they » would then be half as thick as hills of corn , and would soon spread so as to cover the ground . It will not hurt an old bed to thin them out . We are satisfied , on the contrary , that digging among the old vines will aid them , as digging among strawberry vines will improve the strawberry harvest . Rakes are now made on purpose to gather the fruit , and though these rakes tear the vines in piece...

»! t . TEMPLE'S ADDRESS . [Newspaper Article] — Prairie Farmer — 1 January 1844

»! t . TEMPLES ADDRESS . The Galena Sentinel of December 6 th , contains the address of Dr . 3 . T . Temple , delivered before the Upper Mississippi Agricultural Society at its late show . We have not yet had time to look through this address carefully ; but our impression is , from the hasty attention we have been able to give it , that it is one of the best of the season . We discover that the author , instead of presenting a few common places hastily picked up here and there—a little about Adam and Noah—and a little about Virgil and Buel—a great deal about everything in general and very little about anything in particular—has taken a subject and treated it as it should be treated . If anything , connected with agricultural shows , is a dead , downri ght bore , it is an address touching every matter in tho universe excepting the one in hand . Dr . Temple s address treats of [ he relations of chemistry to animal and vegetable life , in a clear arid scientific manner . S uch a subje...
