He is a Reliable man ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

He is a Reliable man ! Farmers , as well as others , seldom callfor work to be done by mechanics until they need it . It is promised to be completed by a certain time . The parties engaging the work arrange -their business so as to have , and use it , at the time stated . Usually , the farmer , or other person provide workmen for the occasion , and to be disappointed seriously injures all concerned ; it is a vexation , a wrong and loss to those who employ the mechanic ; and it as . seriously injures the reputation and business of the mechanic himself . If a mechanic is unable to complete a job at the time required , he had better say so at oucc ; he then would pre . serve his reputation , and secure the confidence of those who employ him . On the other hand , if he promises and does not perform , he destroys confidence in himself and does wrong to his neighbor . These remarks are upon a subject of common interest . They are so just that no one will complain of them ; and we only thi...

"Let Every Farmer Speak His Thoughts ! " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 February 1856

Let Every Farmer Speak His Thoughts ! We give below a communication from a Small Parmer . He refers to an impression -which seems to bo held by his friend , that premiums are given by our agricultural societies to 3 i £ > , and not for the merits of animals . Wo say to this friend—attend the meetings of our County Agricultural Society—secure men as judges , in whom you have all confidence—bring your best animals to the fair , and abide the result . It is seldom that men are satisfied with decisions against their stock . Perhaps sometimes wrong decisions are made . Human judgement is imperfect . — But the true spirit was manifested by tho late President of tho State Agricultural Society at the late fair . Ho said , If I am beat , I will not stay boat . That is a noble feeling , and its exercise is what wo want to bring out by our fairs—and thus we will secure the highest improvement of stock . Wo commend what our correspondent says in regard to getting a • good stand for c...

Progress in Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

Progress in Illinois . We find the following article in the Tincennes Gazette , of the 20 th February , ult : It has been very lately mentioned in our columns , that a mammoth company of foreign capitalists had been formed for the manufacture of salt at the Saline works , in southern Illinois ; and also , that very extensive arrangements are about being completed in the northern part of that state , for the mining of coal and other minerals . It is likewise a well-known fact , that about eighteen months ago , an association of capitalists , with means to the amount of one hundred thousand dollars , was formed in Louisville , for the purpose of mining coal in the southwestern part of that state . A number of companies have also been organized with a view to mining coal along the line of the Central Kailroad . We * have not the precise amount of capital now employed , or that will be employed in a very short time ; in this branch of business ; but we are safe in saying that it is very...

The Yellow locust for our Prairies . '• ' [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

The Yellow locust for our Prairies . • We have , until within the two last years , been a sanguine believer that the yellow locust would be made a most profitable timber for growing on our prairies . The destruction of some groves distant a few miles from our city , within the 7 last year , by the borers , arid the destruction by these insects of solitary trees , in different parts of the country , has led us to doubt success in their culture . Another year will probably furnish us with facts for a riiore clear and decided-opinion upon the matter . If 1 * the borers are to destroy our locusts ^ -the sPbriei ? we are satisfied of the fact , the better will it be for bur farmers , who will in that case turn their attention to the cultivation of some other forest trees , likely to answer the purposes desired . The belief was formerly general that the locust would make a most valuable and lasting timber . We know that it s growth is most rapid . But there are conflicting testimonies in ...

While we insist that knowledge is essential in advancing the highest interests of agriculture , we are as certain that the free circulation of the valuable works on the various branches of the science among oiir farmers , cannot but be eminently ns eful .

Improved Farming . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

Improved Farming . Why is it that some farmers get a third more in crops from a piece of land than other farmers do with an equal quantity of laad of the same quality ? This question is easily answered—it is done by better farming—better working the ground—bet : ter seeding the ground—better system of rotation—of doing the right thing in the right time . . Farmers often make discoveries of the best manner of securing the largest crops , almost by accident . Tho knowledge thus obtained , given in agricultural publications , and improved by others , . results , l . ri great benefits to individuals and vast advantages to the community . Some farmers in this state uniformly get larger crops of wheat than some of their neighbors . They plough their ground deep , er , they drain it , they are more particular in sowing and cultivating , and they are richly paid for their trouble . If the land is designed for wheat , the seed is put in well , the land is drained so that water will not stand...

The Peach Trees . -, [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

The Peach Trees . -, The peach trees in Ohio , as here , have bpen greatly injured by the excessive cold of the present winter . Many of our friends suppose that all their young , and many of their old , trees are killed . We hope that this will not prove to be the case . In a former year , the winter injured peach trees—some fanners supposed their trees were killed had cut them down—others left them standing , and it finally proved that the trees were not as much injured as they appeared to be . Many recovered and made good trees afterwards . We find an article to the point on this subject in the Ohio Farmer . It is by Mr . BATEMAN , a distinguished horticulturist of Ohio . He says in this article : To the owners of injured peach trees , I wish to say do not be too hasty in concluding that your trees arc killed . It is very probable that on cutting beneath the bark , you will find that the wood looks very dark colored , almost like mahogany , and yon think the injury must be fatal ...

The Wool Trade . It is understood that an effort will be made at the present session of Congress to repeal the duties on foreign wool . It is cpritended by those who are in favor of this change , that it will benefit the wool grower . We cannot Well see how the introduction of foreign wool can do this ; but it is a subject we do not profess to well understand .

Office Of Cleveland Wool Depbt , ^ February 4 , 1856 . J DEAR SIR—There has been during the last two weeks more activity in domestic fleeces than for some - months past , which has caused increased firmness on the part of holders .

The Hollyhock . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

The Hollyhock . Within a few years past , German Florists have been engaged in improving the Hollyhock , so that it is now , with them , a flower of great beauty , nearly equaling the Dahlia . It is a hardy plant , and its culture is attended with little trouble . The Gardener s Chronicle says that the seed are to be sown broadcast in a sheltered border in March or April . As soon as the young seedlings will bear handling they should be transplanted into a rich soil in rows two feet apart ,, and . the plants should stand one foot asunder in the rows , in order that they may not be spoiled by being too crowded . The following season they will bloom , when a selection should be made and all the best , varieties marked ; such as are finely shaped and brightly colored should be cut down and planted where they are to remain and bloom ; the others may be thrown away . The varieties are readily increased and perpetuated by division ; good strong plants with plenty of shoots may be taken wh...

The Ox Team [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1856

The Ox Team Our Western people usually . pre . fer ^ horses for farm work ., We apprehend that something would be . gained by using oxen for various purposes of the farm . The ox , trained well , is patient , kind , gentle , and will accomplish much labor . By obtaining the rightkind of stock , they are sprightly , active , and will travel quite as fast as a man wishes to walk . The . short horns make good working oxen ; and it has been found that the Devons , being . lighter , in the long journeys oyer the mountains , were a very superior stock for . work . In regard to the best stock for this purpose however * there is a difference of opinion . What we mean to suggest , is that for many kinds of farm work , it would be economy to Use oxen . — They live on coarser food than horses , cost less , require little care , are easier managed , and when past work , they can be made into capital beef . Just think of these , suggestions , those of you who have not been in the habit of workin...
