¦ <•» The Timeg . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

¦ &amp;lt;•» The Timeg . Within a few weeks , our country has been subject to a great financial reverse . This has affected all classes of society more or less . Farmers have felt it especially in the low price of crops and the small demand for them . There is but little call from foreign countries for American provisions , and the throwing out of employ large bodies of workmen in manufactories , will lessen the requirements at home . Still our produce will sell at low prices , and it is a necessity that farmers , who are in debt , should sell their crops and pay their debts . The evil is not likely to be lessened by holding on to their crops . The yield of wheat , take the whole country through , is more than the usual average . Other crops are much larger than ever before . We are now but a few months from spring and with the demand then , equal to the present , with a great crop of wheat , and corn in prospect , what will your . wheat and corn be worth ? We regard it as the t...

Northern Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

Northern Sugar Cane . The Chinese sngar cane will hereafter be one of the staple productions of our State . Scattered over every part of it , there were raised the season just closing , patches of this cane * . In most instances a trial has been made of its value as a saccharine plant , and with success . We have seen and conversed with many who have tried it , without finding a single exception to this eonclusion . A fine article of the syrup of this canel has been and ia selling here at this time , at $ 1 25 per gallon . This was manufactured by Col . M . Pierson i farmer , near this city . We shall undoubtedly have the article for sale in all our towns the coming winter . It is very gratifying that persons who commenced the manufacture of the juice into syrup , with no practical knowledge of the proper process , have attained results entirely satisfactory . In conversation , they unanimously say that they went on improving their syrup , from the commencement of the trial , and th...

Prepare for Winter . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

Prepare for Winter . Bo sure and gather your seed corn . Provide protection , as much as possible , for your stock in winter . See to the buildings , that they are put iu order for cold weather —cellars banked up , window glass put in , stoves ready , fuel on hand . See that your farming tools are under cover , and your garden tools put in place . Your potatoes should now be dug and placed beyond the reach of frost . Your cabbages should be gathered , trenches made , the roots put in the ground , a shed made over them , loaded with straw , bean vines or other articles , to keep them from freezing . Beets should be taken up , put into the cellar , and covered with sand . Apples should be put into cellars . All these articles do best in an atmosphere a few degrees above freezing point . If you expect eggs , you must have warm places for your fowls to lay in and to roost , and they should be provided with meat to eat . and lime and ashes to wallow in . The great weeds should be removed...

: •— Northern Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

: •— Northern Sugar Cane . The editor cf the Ohio Farmer says in his paper : At every fair I have attended this season I found the Sorghum on exhibition , varying from eight to eighteen feet in hight ; at every fair I found the Sorgho syrup , no two specimens of which were alike . At Delaware , I found the best syrup , and also that which I had heretofore deemed an impossibility , viz—a splendid article of sugar from the Sorghum ! In appearance and taste it closely resembled the best maple sugar . It was a great gratification to know that sugar could be manufactured from this plant , whose reputation for being a humbug was getting very fair . In Ohio are , in round numbers , twenty-five millions of acres of land ; now suppose that every two hundredth acre is sown in Sorghum , and the average product to be three huudred gallons of syrup to the acre , the result will be that instead of importiug millions of gallons of syrup , we shall have thirty-seven and a half millions for consumpt...

Soft Maples for Shade Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

Soft Maples for Shade Trees . We fully indorse the following communication . Soft Maples can be raised easily from seed ; the trees grow rapidly ; make much wood and form beautiful heads . They would be just the tree for the prairie , where a grove a dozen years old , would brake the heavy winds and storms , or furnish fire wood . We have lately seen lines of these trees on roads , proving all that we have here said , and which commanded the admiration of those who had a taste for the beautiful . For the Illinois Farmer . MESSRS . EOITORS : —Permit me to call the attention of all our fellow citizens who may read your valuable paper , and that are about setting out shade trees this fall , or the ensuing spring , to the claims of the soft or swamp maple . This graceful , hardy and beautiful tree is of very rapid growth , attaining to the hei ght of from thirty to forty feet in ten years , at that time it will throw a dense shade over a large area of ground and it will send up no sucke...

Protection for Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

Protection for Cattle . In the prairie sections of our State , where timber cannot be had , and where farmers are too poor at once to build good barns , farmers make very warm shelters by covering frames with straw , which latter article they have plenty of . It is cruel to subject cattle to the hard fare of laying under a fence for protection from our freezing prairie winds . Every feeling man should have a sympathy for the poor dumb brute , who cannot , in human voice , express its wants . Stock do not require as much food when warmly kept in winter as when they have to bear its pitiless blasts . Poorl y kept stock on the prairies may live till spring , through all trials ; but their value will be much less than if well wintered . We have fancied that a poor steer . who has lived in the open prairie in winter , if he could reason , would rather go to the shambles in the fall , than to pass another winter exposed again to the same sufferings . 8 g &amp;amp;„ Many of our readers...

,, — Digging Potatoes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

,, — Digging Potatoes . The potatoe harvest is greatly facilitated by the use of the plough ; and one of the best methods is to commence b y back-fur-rowing between the rows with a double team running the furrows a little lower than the potatoes in the hill and near enough to roll out a few of them the remainder of the work is to be performed with the hoe . Try it , brother farmers you will find it much ahead of the old back breaking way that has so much deterred people from raising that quantity they otherwise would .

What is Imphee [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

What is Imphee It is the African Sugar Cane . Sorgho is the Chinese Sugar Cane , which iB now so mmch talked of and experimented on . The Imphee quite nearly resembles it in botanical properties and in tbe agricultural and commercial value which it may possess . If any great difference except in the appearance of the seed exists between them , in these respects , it remains yet to be noticed . But the history of Imphee is , according to Mr . Leonard Wray , quite different from that of the Sorgho . Sorgho , or the Chinese Sugar Cane , was first introduced into Europe , in 1851 , by the Count de Montigny , consul of France , at that time , at Shanghai inFChina . It was planted by M . Kobert , of Toulon . From this planting only one sprout appeared . It grew and ripened , and the seeds were distributed . A gardener of Hyeres succeeded in ripening eight hundred seeds , which were bought by Yilmorin &amp;amp; Co ., of Paris , for eight hundred francs . The plant then made it way rapi...

Shape of a Goode Horse [ From an ancient Record . ] A goode horse shoulde have a black , smothe , drie , large , round and hollow 4 hove and if it be soft and tender ; and brode about the heles , it ; is the greater sign of lightness . The reason is , for that the horsey , from the day of hys Ming , tredeth light npon the grounde , for he is afrayd to trust to his hoves , being as yet verye tender , andtherefore he strayneth hys fore legges and back the more . The crownes above hys hoves shoulde be small and heavy . Hys pastors short , and that neyther fob lowe nor yeat too high ; so shall he be strong beneath , and not apt to founder .

Concrete Cellar Bottoms [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 November 1857

Concrete Cellar Bottoms The facility and cheapness with which the bottoms of cellars may be made clean , sweet , and impervious to water , is not generally known to house owners , nor the ease and certainty with which water may be excluded from cellars when it is difficult to drain . In soft and pervious soils , this process is best performed by paving with small stone laid in sand , but common compact soils , the natural surface , well leveled , will answer all purposes . Make a thin mortar with water lime and coarse sand , of the consistency called grout , or so thick that it can be poured from a pail on the ground . Commence with a portion of about eight or ten feet at one end and throw on sufficient to cover it an inch or more thick and with a scraper or rake head , spread it evenly and smooth ; then throw on as much clean , coarse gravel as it will absorb , and so continue until it is finished . Iu twelve hours or as soon as it has set , sweep the overplus gravel evenly on the ...

Embellishments of a Country Home . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Embellishments of a Country Home . By Tyler McWhorter , Mercer County , Itlinais . Let others praise the architectural piles , the marbled columns , and the glitter ot art and the costly embellishments of the crowded city —&amp;lt; where hoarded wealth , that has been abstracted from the hands of honest toil , displays itself in the deeoratiena of fashion—but from the pent up views of , walled streets , let me hasten to where the pure breezes of heaven freely play over the green landscape , where the leafy bonghs spread their cooling shade over my head , while far away , on the broad old prairie , the glowing beams of light are softened to the eye—Where the tints of the earth and the hnes of the sky In color though varied in beauty may vie —- From the ceaseless din , the tainted air , and the erowded street of the city , let me steal away to some sunny bank , where the light zephyrs bear along the sweet fragrance ot opening flowers , where the warble of birds , the murmur of the...

The Nortliern Sugar Cane . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

The Nortliern Sugar Cane . We have before alluded to the fact that but little was known of the proper manner of converting the juice of this cane into syrup until the present fall . Many scientific modes were suggested , which on trial altogether failed in producing satisfactory results . We know of several cases in which the use of lime made the syrup entirely worthless , and when no more was added to the juice than was necessary to neutralize the acid , tested by the litmus paper . It was , indeed , in most cases an unknown field , in which every thing was to be learned by experiment . Would it be strange , then , if some of the trials failed to be successful ? We do not , however , know of such failure . Our present purpose is collate from the different statements published in the . newspapers now before us on the subject of manufacturing syrup from the juice of the cane , whatever may seem to be important or as furnishing hints by which the best system for doing the work may be ...

There are no fine wools in the world , raised anywhere on this earth , which are not all from the same family of sheep . B y fine wool , I mean such wool as is sometimes called spinning wool , which is spun and wove into broadcloths and kerseymeres , especially those which are required to take a finish ; that is , after they are woven and fulled , there is a face raised upon them , by either carding or teaseling , and then they are sheared and pressed and calendered , for the purpose of making a finish on them .

Shipmeat of High-fired Stock to the United Statei . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Shipmeat of High-fired Stock to the United Statei .

There was also a thorough-bred mare from the stud of Sir Tatton Sykes , besides four French horses of the most approved kind for draught purposes . The horse Bonny Scotland was shipped by Mr . Bell , of the Adelphi stables , for Capt . Cornish of New York . Mr . Bell also forwarded a fine two ye...

Wolf Teeth and Hooks in Horses . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Wolf Teeth and Hooks in Horses . BY FKOF . CHARLES M . WOOD , V . S , MR . EDITOR : —The Editors of certain newspapers , in various parts of the country , are accustomed to publish , occasionally , recipes in their papers for the cure of diseases in animals . In almost every case , such publications tend to do- more \ birni than 1 ? good ; for diseases are liaDle t ^ efmistaken ^ and a remedy for one disease ^ may prove the reverse for another ^ But supposing the disease to be accurately ascertained , in too many instances the remedy proposed is worse than the disease . These remarks have been proposed from reading a recent number of the Country Gentleman . It was a reply to a communication on Wolf Teeth in the mouths of horses . The writer relates a case of disease of the eye of a favorite young mare , which , he says , caused total blindness . He luckily met with a person who informed him that the cause was wolf teeth ; and npon examination of the mouth of the animal , he actually...

AGRICULTURAL An Agricultural Ode BT ¥ JI . C . BRTANT . ITar back in ages The plough -with wreaths was crowned , The hands of kings and sages Entwined the chaplets round , Till men of spoil Disdained the toil By which the world was nourished , And blood and pillage were the soil In which their laurels flourished . Now the world her fault dispairs—The gilt that stains her story . And weeps her crimes amid tile cares That forms her earliest glory . The throne shall crumble , Tho diadem shall wane , The tribes of earth shall humble The pride of those w . io reiga ; And war shall lay His pomp away ; The fame that heroes tllorish , The glory earned in deadly fray Shall fade , decay and perish .

DOMESTIC ECONOMY [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

DOMESTIC ECONOMY Oca RECEIPT FOR CUBING BEEF AHD PORK . — This receipt , which orginated with us , and has now had many years of trial , we believe to be unsurpassed as a pickie . Nearly all the modern receipts which have appeared in the different agricnltural journals , partake , iu some instances almost identically , of the ingredients and proportions set forth in ours , which we first laid before our readers some fifteen or eighteen years ago . At this period in the season , when farmers and others will soon be putting down their winters , and we may add , their next years supply of meat , it may be of service to re-publish the receipt , which is as follows : To 1 gallon of water , take 1 J lbs . of salt , J lb . brown sugar , J oz . saltpetre , and J oz . potash . In this ratio the pickle to be increased to any quantity desired . Let these be boiled together until all the dirt from the salt and sugar ( which will not be a little ) rises to the top , and is skimmed off . — Then t...

EDITORIAL NOTICES . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

EDITORIAL NOTICES . Small Farms . So men of small means , make farms are undoubtedly the most profitable . We consider it a great error , that many of our farmers , who for the two past years have had good crops and secure great prices for them , here used all their means and stretched their credit , to increase the size of their farms by adding to them with lands . We apprehend that this is the case with many who are likely to suffer under the change of the times . They have even appropriated the money that really belonged to the mechanic and the merchant in making fast payments for these lauds . They have now arrived at the position where other payments are due for lands , and the mechanic and merchant is at the door with their bills , and when importunities for payment cannot be put off . This taste for annexation , who seems to he inherent in the anglo-saxon race , does not add to comfort or prosperity . We recollect an tanecdote of one of the first settlers of Illinois which is...
