'TOT Dav Will Come . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

TOT Dav Will Come . Mr . Editor : —My grand-father , who has now been in Heaven nearly forty years , ( as I hope and believe , ) used to say , when any things-was bought without being paid for at once— My son , pay day will come . Of course , he lived in early times , when dwellings were plain hut comfortable ; when of carriages there were scarcely . any to he seen , but those imported ; when a good Sunday suit — the coat in * ihe shad-belly form , with buttons as large as-a saucer—the vest in the same form—the breeches of deer skin , which were kept in perfdet order with tho yellow ball , — with silver knee-snaps— -the shoes fastened with large steel buckles—well knit and fine sheep s wool hose—a dress hat of the ancient cooked form , surmounting all—I say my grand-father s early life was in the days when all these articles were required to make up a Sunday suit—and which was worn , at ; noother time , except at a wedding , a funeral , an election or town meeting .

Seising Horses . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 April 1858

Seising Horses . Editor of the Farmer : —! desire to say a few words to the farmers of Illinois , on the subject of raising horses for market . We have an extensive range on our western frontiers , inhabited sparsel y by savage tribes , who , from their very nature , cannot be retained at all times ina state of peace . The recent troubles in Utah , in which the Mormons have been and are intriguing with the Indinns . stirring up their natural savage dispositions against our people , add to the present dangerous position of the Indian tribes towards us . The prospect undoubtedly is , that we are to have long and expensive Indian wars , and that these arc to continue until tho whole of the native tribes west of the Mississi ppi river are crushed into quiet . This will not be done until many of these races advance nearl y to the point of extinction—for that is to be the fate of nearl y all of them . . We lament this fact ; but the unerring finger of Providence seeins ~ to point to it . ...

Sowing Grass Seed . There seems to a great diversity of opinion in regard to the proper time and proper manner of sowing grass seeds . Among our best farmers different opinions and different practices exist . This state of the case ia found not only in Illinois but in other States . So important has the matter been considered in Sfassachusctts ^ that a series of experiment have been made in that State , under the supervision of the Secretary of the Board of Agriculture . In the published transactions of that board , there is a : Treatise on Grasses by the Secretary , C . L . FMNT , Esq ., . showing the depth of soilia inches and fractions of an inch , at which the greatesf number of seeds germinate , also the depth at which only half the seeds germinate ; and lastly , the least depth of soil at which none of the seeds germinate . From this table has been selectedwhat pertains to the following kinds of grasses , being those mostly grown in this country : , „ , an AH- Half . None . Or...

. ••» Taxation . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

. ••» Taxation . Editor of the Farmer ;—The system of taxation is unequal in our State . It falls improperly and injuriously , I think , upon the hard working farmer . A large portion of our State s yet wild lands ; owned mostly by nonresidents and by rich people living amongus . The farmers of our State , while endeavoring to make living for themselves , are at the same time working for the benefit of these owners of wild lands . They make more money for them than they do for themselves . The sweat that exudes from their brows is not more for the benefit of their wives and children , than for the man who does not labor , hut who is--able by the labor of others ¦ to ride in his , carriage , while the farmer has to trudge on behind his plow . . now , for one , I don t believe in this state of thihgs . u There is neither equality nor justice in it . It makes the honorable and in - dustrious laborer the slave of the rich man , whether he will or not . ¦ * And he is forced into V this p...

Many strong , healthy , industrious men want work , and they cant get it . Go to the builders and they have more laborers than they can employ . Go to the brick-yards and they have the pick of workmen . No public works arc going ¦ on . The railroads discharge every man they can get along without . Farmers , give us work ! We want it . Wo need it . Shall we starve ? Shall we steal ? What shall we do ? -Last Sunday night a laborer , not knowing what to do with himself , without money and with friends , went to the city prison andbegged for a chance to- sleep in a prison cell , which was given him . Laborers will work on farms at such rates an farmers can pay . We must do this . We cannot dictate terms . We must must work or do woy . se—1 ^ 0 to your alms-houses . A LABORER .

Trial of Plows at the Fair . t [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

Trial of Plows at the Fair . t Editor Farmer : —J need not speak of the importance of a thorough trial of the plows to be put on-exhibition , at the next State Fair . That trial can be made one of the most interesting features of the Fair . - Every • farmer in all this broad State is interested in knowing which are the best plows made in the State , and their adaption to the different kinds of work . We want to-see the work of the different breaking plows ; the deep tiller plows ; the ordinary clipper plows ; the double Michigan plows—the work of all the plows that can be presented . Why cannot this trial commence just as well on Thursday morning of the week as later ? I respectfully suggeit this matter to the consideration of Mr . Mills , superintendent of the plowing match . I am told that the best kind of ground can be had for plowing near the Fair Grounds . PLOUGHBOY .

"Spare the Birds . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

Spare the Birds . . Mr . Editor : —Iwas very much interested in an article in the FARMER [ in the Februry number ] with this title . The statements madein that article added to the convictions I had . felt before , that man ought to spare the birds , if for no other reason than that they lived on insects which devoured his crops of fruit , grain , and the young vegetables found in the gardens . But there were other reasons . which induced me to spare the birds . Their company about horns is pleasant , their music cheering , and their habits interesting . I have noticed at times , for several days , the movements of a pair of wrens who have made a home . within the . weather-boarding of my house , where a knot having fallen out , a hospitable shelter was opened to receive them . Of the habits of the wren , it may be said that he . generally reaches this country from the South by the 10 th of May , and . then he loses no time in finding himself a home . This is Usually ahole in some t...

What can lie Bone ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858

What can lie Bone ? Editor of the Farmer : —Prices of produce are likely to rule low ; and to avoid some of the troubles which may follow , I will tell you what I design to do . I intend , by good cultivation , to make my lands produce about double the usual crops . Last spring I plowed my ground for spring wheat with a subsoil ( Double Michigan ) plow . I bought Canada club wheat at two dollars a bushel , for seed . The land yielded me at least thirty-three bushels an acre . My ground was old , had been accustomed to being shallow plowed , and deep plowing brought the rich soil to the surface , made It mellow , and , in fnct , never was ground in better order to receive the seed . The berry of the wheat was plump and fine , and it required good judges to tell it was spring wheat . I sold it to one of your city millers at a price above that usually paid for wheat . Now , I state these things to show what I have done by cultivating the land for one cro p thoroughly . . I intend to pl...

¦ Denes Two-Horse Breaking Plow . Editor of the Farmer : —Some two weeks since traveling in the central counties in Illinois , in company with some farmers , stopping a- moment at Bloomington , we examined some plows of the manufacture of John Derre , at Moline , Illinois . These have the name of the Moline Plow . * We admired their workmanship and the scientific principles on which they were constructed , by which they were light , strong , turned a good sized furrow , requiring little power to draw them . These conclusions were , readily come to ; but some of the company could not believe that the two-horse breaking plow could be drawn profitably by two horses . Near Pana and close by the railroad a man was breaking prairie , with two horses , and it was readily seen that he was using one of Derre s plows . The furrows were well turned , and the ground broken was beautifully donebetter by far than plowing with tho big plow drawn by five or six yoke of cattle . The man observing ou...
