UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1858
THE CtEVEtAND WOOL DEPOT , ESTABLISHED IN * THE WINTER OF 1854 , has been in operation over four years , during which period , though its progress has been Impeded by the adverse years of 1854 and 1857 ; the practicability of the phut has been clearly demonstrated . That tho house affords superior advantages , to the WOOL GROWERS OF THE . WEST , as aTfiedium for passing their wools Into the hands ofthe . manufacturer , is now no loog ^ r a question . But although a very largo number of Wool . Growers hare availed themselves of these advantages daring the last four years , yet , surprising as it may appear to many , our receipts have been larger from Merchants and . Wool-buyers than from Woolgrowers , and this may be accounted for mainly from the fact , that , as a class , Wool-growers have been more caaUy , influenced and misled than the former , by the statements of , a few operators who are . wholly opposed to all efforU ; hajiag lbr -their object the syatematlEtng of . the wool t...

Baize , or Indian Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
Baize , or Indian Corn . It is said that-the native country , of , this valuable grain is not determined . It was found in cultivation among the Indians on the first discovery of America . It was unknown to the ancient Greek and Roman writers , and it is not mentionedby the earlier travelers in Persia , China , India and other parts of Asia , and Africa ; and who were minute in describing . the productions ofthe countries theyVjaited . The claim that it came originally- from India or the Western coast of Africa , is not well sustained . There is corn now forind in Africa , but the probabilities ; are : in . fa . vor . of the seed having been i fumish . * d 8 frQm , this continent : Her centlyithas been noticed ih / a ,, wild state . In the Keportof one of the Bailroad .

y _ «—¦¦ - ' / Draining . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
y _ «—¦¦ - \ / Draining . JfThe attention of formers has recently been directed to the subject of drainage . Many farms the present season would have yielded large and profitable crops if they had been underdrained that now will remain unimproved . We do not suppose that many farmers have at present the . ability to drain their farms . But as farms are reduced , and thorough cultivation is practiced—as we aim more and more to make our farms our permanent homes—the subject of draining will be more thought of and the plan practiced . We find a good essay on this subject in the Homestead : ¦ . MISCONCEPTION IN REGARD TO DRAINAGE . —Every new idea in agriculture is greeted with about as much persecution , as pertains to new doctrines in theology . It has to make its way in the world against the combined assaults of ignorance , stupidity , and ridicule . No class , perhaps , are more afraid of new ideas than our farming population , and among none is a desired reform . so long in reachin...

varieties of Food . - . Truly is it said there is no accounting for tastes—we-know of . some of the strange anomalies ,, which the tastes of different nations present , but their utter , discordancy is all but appalling wheuthey are all , or many of them presented at bnce . Bead the following , and theu imagine yourself at a table with a , bill of fare presenting-all the luxuries and varieties mentioned . ( We copy from an addeess of E . F . Sherman , given before the Middlesex North Agricultural Society , Mass . ) : The comparative value of animal and vegetable food , h as been a frequent source of * discussion and contention . Men who have contended for an exclusively vegetable diet , have been , in general , men of weak stomachs , if not of weak heads ; dyspeptics , and grumblers , who , havingsuffercd long from sour stomachs , have become soured throughout . But they have in vain attempted to support their theo- * rics against the deductions of the anatomist , the natural instin...
New rjghtnlng Bods , [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
New rjghtnlng Bods , Wc have been shown a new style of lightning rod , made from sheet eopper , rolled into circular form , in such manner as to present a greatly increased surface to the fluid , and thus conduct it to the ground with greater speed and safety than the rod now in ordinary use . In reference to the utility of lightning rods in general , we find the following remarks in the patent office report for 1854 : If there be one time more than another , says a late writer on electricity , in which man feels that he is entirely in the hauds of One mightier than himself , in which all hU personal pride sinks in the conviction of his utter helplessness , it in when the forked holts of heaven glaro about him with frightful brightness , and the dread artillery of the skies stans him with its deafening peals , and shakes the very earth on wh ch he treads . Then , I tay , it , is that his conscience tells him how entirely dependent he is ; and how , in a moment , the next flesh might...
"Slay to see the Balloon Go Up !" [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
Slay to see the Balloon Go Up ! Mr ., Editor : On the 22 d June a stout , healthy-looking man of about 23 years—ratter rough exterior—rhis elbows very nearly . out , his hat a great deal worse for wear—tobacco juice staining the corners of his mouth—was seen swaying and lounging near a grocery ^ Espying an acquaintance from the country who was bustling about doing up some little business , and manifestly anxious , to return to his farm , he hailed him— John , going home ? ain t you-going to see the balloon go up ? No , I can t stay ; too much jrork at home ; can t lose an hour ; just got some early corn ; mean to have a lot of corn ; twill pay well next fall . Sam , you Bad better go home , too ; youll want some corn . next fall . But Sam wouldn t gy . He spent the afternoon loitering about—spent all the money he had in his pockets—spent his credit , and drove up to his home about midnight , pretty much spent himself . It took him a whole day to recover from his balloon ^ speculatio...
The Northern Sugar Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
The Northern Sugar Crop . Mr . Editor : It would be wonderful , indeed , if we should hot have enough hot weather to mature our-sugar cane crop the present season . This crop is not benefited by early planting . What it wants is , —when it is planted , to-be planted on good kind ground , and to be . cultivated well . So soon as the hot weather sets in it grows , and rapidly attains maturity . Last year cane seed planted late in June matured well . I believe it will do the same thing planted the last part of the month . Late falls almost always follow , late springs . Will the planting of sugar cane seed pay those of our farmers who are near enough to the proposed mill to deliver the cane there f What are . the estimates of a * crop of Chinese sugar cane ? The first question must be answered by the farmer ; and I * will endeavor to-answer the other ; and JOT the basis of that answer I will takethe statement of Joseph S . Levering , of Pennsylvania . Mr . Levering manufactured juice f...
« , The . Sugar Cant Crap . ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
« , The . Sugar Cant Crap . ¦ Editor of Farmer : The papers contain accounts of hig h waters on the lower Mississippi , the breaking of the levees and submerging of plantations . The losses of crops , it is said , may be estimated by millions . It would not be strange , under the circumstances , indeed the fact is very probable , that the injury to the sugar crop may be so great as ^ to eause the renewal of the high prices that ruled last year . If that should prove to be the case , our farmers would find it for their interest to raise sufficient Chinese sugar cane the present seaso n for the manufanture of sugar and m 0 losses for consumption b y their families . Last fall many families saved a good deal of money , and secured themselves many comforts by . means of the molasses they ruamifac lured themselves . A number of farmers could join together and purchase a mill and boilers , and save their cost tho first year . ¦ May 30 , ! o 8 . . J . S . .
Tiic Lawtoa Blackberry . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858
Tiic Lawtoa Blackberry . Editors of the Farmer : Vov three or four years the Eastern Agricultural papers have contained advertisements offering for sale the Law ton Blackberry , accompanied by a cut representing a large and most beautiful blackberry , calculated to make one s mouth water . It had very much that effect on me . — Two years ago last fall , ( 1856 , ) I sent to Mr . 3 ? . Trowbridge , New Haven , Conn ., for-a dozen of the plants , which , with the express , charges , cost me just six doVars and fifty cents . They came in good time , and I planted them out well , according to directions . The next spring three or four sprouted and sent up small shoots , but before fall all had died but one plant , and the shoots of that had grown but a foot hi g h . supposing mat my iaimre was not from my own neglect , or fault of the soil , and still having in my mind s eye the luscious fruit of which wc had read and heard so much last fall a year , ( 1 S 5 S , ) I sent for some two do...
