The Eioscorca , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

The Eioscorca , Hovey s Magazine for November contains an article in which a high opinion is expressed of the vegetable named above , and the declaration made , that it will prove a valuable acquisition to the kitchen garden , become one of its annual products , and form one of the delicacies of the table . We have no data to controvert this opinion . The impositions which were put off upon many of our citizens , in dealers sending them the small tubers which grow out of the ground on the vines , and in many cases only the skins of these—has very much operated against the cultivation of the plant . If we hud good sized tubers , by which to make a proper beginning , we doubt not that in one or two years our western people would be able to form a correct judgment of the value of the Biosco ~ rea . Our deep soils in Illinois would be the very place to grow this vegetable . At the United States Agricultural Society Pair , last year , in Philadelphia , some very fine specimens were prese...

Illinois Farmer for 1858 [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Illinois Farmer for 1858 We . are now obtaining the type and other material for enlarging and greatly improving the Illinois Farmer for 1858 . It will be printed in a quarto form , on better type , and better paper than the present volume , and we design tha every number shall be embellished with some illustration . We intend that the work shall be fully up to the amount of patronage it receives . Necessarily such publications as the ILLINOIS FARMER for a time are experiments . We thank the farmers of Illinois that our present and prospective patronage justifies us in making the proposed changes . The improvements made in th « present day in the various departments of agriculture are placed on record in our agricultural periodicals ; and wo venture to say that no farmer can peruse one of these publications , and store his mind with the infoimation it contains , and practice upon the same , without receiving- benefits to him a hundred fold more than the cost of the publication . What...

Orchards . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Orchards . We know a farmer , who has planted out several orchards with success , and practices on this wise : He obtains bis trees in the fall ; buries them in the ground ; and sets them out in the spring . Long experience satisfies him that this is the best for the trees , and that this practice secures a good growth the first season . It is a good thing to look at the young troe 3 planted out often , and see if they are attacked by borers . If they are , cut out the borejs—or get them out some way—aud close up the wound with wax . There is danger that your young apple trees will be girdled by mice and rabbits this winter . Clear away all the trash about them , and take domestic , tear it into strips , broad enough to protect the tree—saturate the strips with tar , and wind them about the tree above the roots . The cloth can be made to answer for several years , if taken off in the spring . Should you desire to raise seedling apple , peach , quince or pear trees , plant out the se...

- — - - aq » . — — ~ --.... Pears . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

- — - - aq » . — — ~ --.... Pears . This fruit has been cultivated iu the United States , since the first settlement of the country . The Horticultural periodicals generally contain notices and illustrations of the new as well as old varieties , and there are long lists in the Fruit Books and Nursery Catalogues . In fact , the number of varieties of pears in many of the Nursery Catalogues , exceeds those of apples . We have been surprised in visiting the eastern cities , in pear time , that few pears were seen in the markets ; and those found there were sold at very high prices . At a late Pomological meeting in Western New York , a gentleman stated that he had 500 dwarf pear trees—that his white Doyenne s did not do well thisyear , bat from the others he had sold the fruit at the rate of twelve dollars per bushel , or ten cent 3 each ! Dr . Grant , of Newburg , stated that he had sold 400 pears , the produce of a six year old tree , for 12 J- cents cash— $ 50—and obtained § 12 per ...

It is manifest that the plant is to be a staple of our State , and , whatever information will tend to make its cultivation profitable , should , if possible , be obtained . Much good syrup was made in the season just closed , but every manufacturer had his own syss tem , and there is now no perfect rule generally known to insure the best success . Hence a meeting of those persons who ^ have made successful experiments , can be eminently useful to themselves , and to those who design to engage in the business .

Fruit Requiring Names . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

Fruit Requiring Names . We anticipate a meeting of the State Horticultural Society in this city on the 4 th of January next . In our vicinity , growing out principally of the change of ownership in farms , there are a great many apples the names of which are lost , and the owners are very desirous of obtaining their true names . There are also raised in this county a good deal of > seedlins : fruit , much of which is very good , worthy of propagation and to which names should be given . We expect at the January meeiing several gentlemen competent to decide upon the names-of old fruits , and upon the value of the new . We therefore suggest that such fruit should be sent to the Corresponding Secretary of the State Agricultural Society , who will pass it over to the Horticultural Society , for their examination . It will be properly taken care of , and the decisions of the Society noted . <» When corn costs 50 c per bushel , pork costs 5 c per pound .

The Hog Market [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

The Hog Market We understand that Mr , James L . Lamb of this city , began cutting pork for packing on the 23 d Nov . He has about 1 , 200 head now in his pens , and is offering ? 3 gross for good hog * . There were a good many drovers in the city last week , and there seems to be a disposition among many of them to sell provided they can realize $ 4 net . We are glad to learn that sales will be made in this region almost exclusively for cash . We subjoin information from other points as far as heard from . The St . Louis News of Nov . 18 th says : Pork packers ar £ ready to buy hogs , but sellers are slow in coming in . Sinalllots are being slaughtered on the Illinois , and a few lots of mess pork and lard have been sent in . Tho pork commands § 12 50 , and prime lard is held at about lie . . At Cincinnati , yesterday , hogs were selling at $ 5 75 to fill contracts , and mess pork at § 14 50 . The regular market has not yet opened . Farmers , says the Commercial , are careless abou...

• ——«•» The Farmer ' s Occupation—Food for Thought , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

• ——«•» The Farmer s Occupation—Food for Thought , The occupation of the farmer furnishes food for thought , subjects for study , which are ever new and inexhastible . All the elements wait to do his bidding . All the occult forces of nature challenge his investigation , and promise him a rich reward for every secret he will bring forth from her hidden store-house . He can use headwork as well as hand-work . No form of labor invites so freely or pays so promptly the headwork of the laborer , as agriculture . Nature has her secrets . She does not reveal them unasked ; but to keen intelligence she constantly offers something new and valuable—chemistry , botany , geology , ornithology , all stand ready to help the farmer do his work . And just in proportion as he uses their aid , does he elevate his occupation from servile drudgery to a seul elevating and expanding employment . He has to do with plants . How much is his interest in these plants awakened , if he knows something of the i...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 December 1857

THE POULTRY YARD LAVING HENS . —Just about this season of the year , when eggs are an indispensable ingredient in the good things to be got up for thanksgiving and Christmas , laying hens are a valuable and profitable portion of a farmers stock . The propensity for laying , seems to belong to dis tinct families of the same breed . We know of a farmer whose chickens are a cross of Shanghai , Brama and the common dunghill . The pullets lay when four months old , and they keep on laying with little intermission , through the whole year . No especial pains are taken to feed them . Other persons having precisely the same cross , get but very few eggs . Why is this ? We occasionally find a scrub cow an excellent milker , while some cows of the same stock are worth nothing for the dairy . To Prepare Ponltry for Market . PREPARING . —Make them fat . A grain-fed plump , fat fowl will sell for double the price per pound of a lean one . A liberal feeding , for a few weeks before killing will n...

The Practical Farmer Diiting Together 'Labor and learning . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

The Practical Farmer Diiting Together Labor and learning . - fil JOHN BBJKOtDS . The wisdom of the C « - * . t 3 t ^ tablished on the globe at the-first perio * ,, auisal and vegetable life , and when siaui appeared on the earth , vegetation was presented to him for his support . < - As man was endowed with more understanding than other animals , he cultivated and improved the vegetable productions around him for his sustenance , and those labors made him a practical farmer . It may , therefore , be almost affirmed that agriculture for the support of man was a decree of Heaven . And the most ancient records extant on the subject state , that God commanded Adam to enter the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it . . Agriculture runs back into the most remote antiquity on earth , and still farther back may its principles be traced , to Heaven itself . When nature establishes a principle , it is just and right . The wisdom of the Creator iB never mistaken ; and , therefor...

Tlic Best Diode of Raising mid Managing Cattle on the Frames of Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

Tlic Best Diode of Raising mid Managing Cattle on the Frames of Illinois . . fVr which thejxrttvremium vxu awarded by the Illinois Slate Agricultural Society , Having been a resident of Illinois for twentytwo years , nnd constantly ( and ut times extensively ) engaged in breeding , raising and feeding cattle for the butcher , I give it as my deliberate conviction , that there is no part of the continent that surpasses , if tiny equals , the prairies of Illinois , in adaptation for breeding , raising and fattening cattle . In visiting different parts of the Union—north , south , east nnd west—I have not met with any nativo stock that equals the bc * st native stock of Illinois and Iowa . To my mind the reason is obvious : Our climate is the * most favorable for producing cattle , because , situate between 37 A aud 42 £ degrees north latitude , we escape the extreme cold of the north , and the continued heat , « f the south . Those most conversant with the breeding and raising of catt...

Disadvantages and Temptations of Agricultural Life . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

Disadvantages and Temptations of Agricultural Life . Extract from a Sermon , delivered by John Moore , Beerfield , Mast . Having spoken of the advantages and attractions of agricultural life , I must be allowed to say a word of its disadvantages and temptations . I . Its tendency to lead to mental inactivity ; the danger that in the isolated positions of the fanner he will suffer his mind to ruBt from inactivity ; that he will perform his daily and yearly round of labor mechanically , and suffer bis abundant leisure to run to waste . There IB danger of this . Tt Another danger to which I shall venture to allude , is slovenlyand clownish manners . — There is no excuse for the farmer if he is one or the other . There is danger that ho will build a good house , arid let it-stand without a tf eeiir shrub , or flower to break the air of barrenness and desolation around-H—let it stand white , and glaring , and ghastly ; that the best part of it will be closed the year round , opened only ...

A Lesson to a Scolding : Mother [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

A Lesson to a Scolding : Mother A little girl , who had witnessed the porplcxity of her mother on a certain occasion , when her fortitude gave way under severe trial , said : Mother , does God ever fret or scold ? The query was so abrupt and Btartling , it arrested the mothers attention almost with a shock . Why , Lizzie , what makes you ask that question ? Why , God is good—you know you used to call him the Good Man , when I was little —and I should like to know if he ever scolded . No , child , no . Well , I am glad ho don t ; for scolding always makes me feel so bad , even if it is not me in fault . 1 don t think I could love God much , if he scolded . . The mother felt rebuked before her simple child . Never had she heard so foroible a lecture on the evils of scolding . The wordB of Lizzie sank deep in her heart , and she turned away from the innocent face of her little one , to hide the tears that gathered in her eyes . — Children are quick observers ; and Lizzie , seeing the e...

A Good Bank * [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

A Good Bank * The subject of Banks is at present the most exciting topicof the day . Their utility , as they are often managed , has long been questioned by some , and during the sitting of the legislatures of the several States , the present winter , it is probable that the subject will command general interest . But , however the question may be determined , there is one bank where : deposits may always be considered safe . Its vault is Mother Earth—seeurennd always yielding good dividends ; the exchanges , the planting of Hie field and the garden , always natural and therefore equal in value . The drafts should be happiness , sobriety and noble indepttndence ; the assets would be beautiful fields waving with golden harvests , to gladden the hearts of the people ; the liabilities would be unavoidable yet agreeable indebtedness alone to the Giv ? r of all good , while the dividends would be htatih , prosperity and wealth . This , the Farmers Bank , is one that will be found worth s...
