Wit @ uhM . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

Wit @ uhM . For tho Fanner . New Orchards . .- - The early setting in of winter prevented many young orchards from being set out in the fall . Indeed , trees on the way from nurseries are probably much injured by freezing . There is no chance to save them but-by burying them , in tho ground . It will uot do to put them into hot cellars where ihey will be likely to mould , or half cover thorn in the open air . . : The farmer now has leisure to form his plans for the nest season s campaign : In good soil ; it is quite as well to transplant trees in tho fall as in the spring ; but it it is yet to do , arrange ments can be made for obtaining the trees in proper time and putting thou ] in the ground well . So much has been said about plauting out trees , that almost all -are familiar with : the process . You want stocky trees , with good roots , a large hole made to receive-the tree , tho roots spread out , and the earth iworked fine and made to touch every portion of the . roots .- The ...

Downing '!* Seedling Gooseberry [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

Downing !* Seedling Gooseberry Of all the foreign or native Gooseberries which we have had opportunities to taste , for some years past , from Canada to Delaware , no variety , in our opinion , can compare with Mr . Charles Downing s Seedling , obtained from the Houghton s seed some three years ago , establishing once more the fact once so startling to the pomological world—so much disputed and ridiculed—but , in our opinion , so perfectly logical , that the artificial pro ^ ducts of nature improve by successive generations of seedlings . The berries before us ( which kept ripe for more than ten hot days without any sign of decay ) are about double tho size of the parent , ( Houghton s ;) pale , or light green , without any blush , and smooth . The skin is very thin , and the fruit as delicate and tender as any European Gooseberry , in its native soil . — The flavor and aroma are perfect ; sweet , with plenty of vinous subacid . In enjoying a goodly supply oil these berries , we , f...

Wu dtoxfam . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 January 1858

Wu dtoxfam . Practical Hints to Amateurs . BV THE LATE A . J . DOWNING . Grafts may be cut now , as well as later in the winter , if more convenient to you . Keep them in a cool place , half buried in earth or sand , till you want them . If not wanted till spring , bury them out of doors , with only a couple of inches of the points exposed , and throw two or three inches of litter over them . Strawberry beds will produce good crops in open winter quarters , in the northern States ; but they will bear much better ones , arid much larger fruit , if you cover them with straw , salthay , or stable litter ; otherwise you are likely enough , in stiff soils , to find half the plants dead or injured by being thrown ont in tbe spring . You may transplant , all winter , whan the ground is not frozen ; only take care not to expose the roots to frost while not covered with soil . In winter planting , it is best to pile up a mound of earth six or eight inches around the trunk of tho tree . This ...

Inbar . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1858

Inbar . How much is misunderstood in the word labor ? It is not tlio only purpose of life , as tile reasonings of Franklin and other men of material turn of turn of mind -would lead us to suppose , nor can we carry into practice , in the present stage of the world , the injunctions of the i \ r cw Testament , —to take no thought of our bodily wants , —to live without care as do the liliics and the ravens . The disciples of the first school err in making labor , work , material application , the niain spring of their efforts ; and whoever attempts it , from the start , amongst the children , will find himself woo-fully mistaken in the result . Mi-ml is the ruling power in pan , and it must ho cultivated , and that early in life . The rudiment , of knowledge must ihenbe given to it all hazards , and if a child knows it will have to earn its daily bread , it will do it the better , do it with improved iirciitivcs , and an energy and purpose tha . t . \ h e mere worker cannot know , lay...

Essay on the Rearing of Swine . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1858

Essay on the Rearing of Swine . BY CHAS . TV . MURTFELDT . The article of pork in its various phases of ham , lard , bacon , mess pork , & c , enters so largely into the diet of the present generation of this country , England , Germany and the sea-faring man , that it is well worthy ¦ the consideration of every farmer , in order to make its production profitable , both to the producer and consumer . Having been very unsuccessful in fattenning my pork this season and being well acquainted with parties where the opposite was tho result , I have undertaken to pen these few lines , giving the details and pro . posing to draw a few practical conclusions therefrom . I keep a small dairy in Northern Illinois , and knowing that the profits arc considerably increased by the rearing and fattening of swine in connection with the dairy , I determined to raise some , having thc necessary breeding sows . In Northern Illinois , where township organization is universal , many town 3 be...

The Northern Sugar Cane , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1858

The Northern Sugar Cane , We have hitherto given communications from many persons who succeeded in manufacturing last fall , a palatable syrup from thc Northern Chinese Sugar Cane . It will readily be admitted that all their experiments and apparatus for making syrups were imperfect . It is a wonder that they succeeded at all in making a fair article . Thc experiments , however , have settled a few facts : —the cane contains a large amount of saccharine matter , which can be converted by experience and skill , into the best sugar and molasses . There is not a doubt in regard to these facts . But the same experiments have satisfied us , that to make the business profitable and certain , more and perfect apparatus , more and perfect experience and knowledge for the manufacture are required . That man who erects expensive establishments for the manufacture of sugar and molasses from this cane , without he has practical and certain knowledge of the processes * required for success , wil...

•*> — From tlio Ohio Former . Artesian Wells . Jiy ( Ml . Chat . Wtilltacff , Cleveland , Ohio . These wells aro sunk , not with a pick and shovel , but consist of a small hole drilled into the earth and rock by a drillchisel , in tho same , way that rocks are blown by powder , onl y the weight of the apparatus does not require any blows . — They are the same in form and construction as thc borings for salt water , 01 * for coal . When the drill-chisel , with a bitt of 2- | or 3 inches across , is sunk a short distance into tho soil or -surface rock , an iron rod is attached by a screw , and this it sinks into thc earth . B y means of rods and joints the hole may be sunk to any depth , hundreds and thousands of feet . It cannot be carried down , however , without water . Every few inches the rods and chisel , or bitt , must be drawn out and thc crushed rock and dirt pumped up . This is done by an iron tube that is moved up and down in the hole , with a valve in tho bottom...

® hc ( gvaaier , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1858

® hc ( gvaaier , Butter Making and Hair ) - Manngement . The Dairy room should be cool , airy , dry , and free from vermin of all kinds . To prevent the intrusion of flies , the windows or c . penings ought to be covered with a fine wire gauze . Oiecmliness is of the utmost importance in dairy management , and if not strictly looked after , may cause considerable loss . Every article in which milk is placed should be washed in boiling water , and a little lime or soda dissolved in it . If milk should happen to sour in any dish , thc acid thus generated will injure any which may le afterwards put into it ; but if washed in water in which an alkali has been dissolved , the acid will bo destroyed . Batter is made of cream , freed from its milky and serous properties . This is effected by churning . Some imagine that no butter Can td gjod except such as is made from fresh cream ; but this is a mistake , as cream requires to U . vc a little acidity before the butter will form . The lengt...
