Trial of Plows at the Fair- [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

Trial of Plows at the Fair- Editor of the Farmer : —I agree with Ploughboy that the trial of / the plows cap be made one of the most interesting features of the Fair . As the success of agriculture depends wore on the plow than en any , or all other implements , it is a thing that is apt to be overlooked and passed by as a matter of little or no consequence , and I would have been glad had the society seen fit to have offered sufficient premiums to have called into the field a large number , who look upon themselves , plows , and teams , as the very best in the- Sfafc . I would say come one , come all , and will do all in my power to give you a fair and full chance to try all your plows , under the eye and supervision of the proper committee . Aud I would say to Ploughboy , please accept of my thanka for the suggestions which you have offered . As it will call the attention of the public , and I hope that of the committee-also , to the fact , that tlie examinations upon which the aw...

' t - . ' Plait On ! [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

t - . Plait On ! Mr . Editor r- ^ -Some --suppose that most seeds should be planted early to get good crops . This is a mistake as a geueral fact . Peas , onions , and some other vegetables should be planted early . The great object is to plant or sow at the time , when the plant will start vigorously and will be met with no cold chilly weather to check its growth . These truths are not too much thought of . We are anxious , after a dreary winter , to get our seeds into-the ground ; and the result often is , that wc tail from , this premature labor . AVe have been trying to get early beans , —they will not come sooner than those planted three weeks later , and will not produce half as well . So of many other vegetables . We have hnown corn , some of the earlier varieties , planted in . August , make good roasting years . • -If planted early in the spring , it would not have reached the same state of maturity in double the time . Hence it often is that field corn planted in the middl...

Tree ' Culture . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

Tree Culture . Mr . Editor ;—The time is . fast coming when farmers who wish to plant groves on their farms should be looking out for seed ; The soft maple seeds are nearly ripe , and so are the ash . The sugar maple seeds eonic later . An hour s labor in the timber will secure you all you want . You have no idea how rapidl y timber trees will grow from seeds . In five years soft maples will make a handsome little tree , and the ash will grow about as fastasthelocust . We cap form no judgment of the growth of fine flourishing forest trees , planted and started in nurseries , by stunted trees , their roots mid tops cutoff , which are often brought from the woods and planted ab & ut our yards aud streets . To make a fine , healthy , rapid growing tree , it should have a fair start from the seed . ACER ,

Poultry—Bolton Greys . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

Poultry—Bolton Greys . Editor Farmer : —I am no chicken fancier , other than to get a good breed for the purpose of keeping my family with eggs . I have tried Shaiighats , Cochin Chinas , Bramas , Polauds , Half Spanish , and the common barn yard fowls . I found that the three first layed many eggs , but it cost a good deal to keep them , Aud if we , by chance , raised a chicken , they did not cat as well as the chickens of the common breeds . There was mere meat , and a good deal more bone , to be sure , but they were not as delicate in flesh as our old stock . The Poland hens would lay , and would set , aud some of them would leave their eggs before they were hatched , and sometimes very soon after they were hatched —which was death on the young broods . The Half Spanish were good for little , either to lay , to set , or for the table . The common barn yard fowl is no stranger . They will answer very well as layers and for the table , if well provided for . This breed has lost cas...

Current Events . ' [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

Current Events . The selling of milk from diseased cows , from swill milk cows , has made quite a sensation in New York . The circumstances of there being very had milk used in the city for many years ,- appears to have heen known to the good inhabitants of Gotham , but they are a very forbearing people and have allowed the evil to go on until an outburst was unavoidable , and the . right man , as usual at such times , appeared , capable of giving the facts and stamping an authenticity upon them , which resulted in those municipal measures that were to root out the nuisance , and vindicate the majesty of the people . Mr . Frank Leslie , editor of the Illustrated News , had thoroughly investigated the subject before his paper . became the medium of those truly terrible revelations that have since been promulgated . That a cow could be so diseased as to lose her tail pretty near the root , lose her skin by the least abrasion , have ulcers oozing their ma cerattons from unusual parts o...

The Pattut Office . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

The Pattut Office . The papers contain a communication from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to Hon . J . Horr , Commissioner of Patents . The letter complains that the moneys of the government are used to purchase common seeis to distribute - through the country , free of expense to the people , and that thus the government comes in competition with a large class of citizens engaged in raising seeds for market . The . communication also suggests that the office should only purchase and distribute seeds collected in for . eign countries and which could not be obtained by our seeds men . The communication we refer to , comes from an interested class , and the only answer we now propose to offer is , that a much larger interested class favor the distribution of seeds by the Patent Office . The only question Tciilly is , whether a smaller number shall bo accommodated at the expense of the many . While it is very likely that niauy common garden seeds have been distributed by the P...

What is Patriotism ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

What is Patriotism ? Editor of the Farmer ;~ Many men regard it as a great point of patriotism , when war exists , to rush into battle and hazzard their lives in behalf of their country . When they do this for the good of their countryj— : the preservation of its honor and its rights ^ — this is patriotism . But there are other ways in which men can exhibit patriotism . Every matter of public interest—every effort to developc by united means the resources of the country—every voluntary expenditure for the erection of a bridge , the putting up of- a church or school house—exhibits in those who engage in these things their patriotism . It does not require the sacrifice of life , but it does of money , and these small things in their influence upon our race , if we would trace that influence , would be seen to be important as it passes down the current of time . The little sacrifices for patriotic duty , though they may now appear trivial , will have their happy influence long after th...

Some days since two hens having come off with chickens the same day , I gave the chickens to the oldest , and , in order to secure the mourner excellent and agreeable society , I shut her up in a coop with . a gentleman fowl . She at one dismissed her sorrows with her cluck , and in five days she was let out of the coop and commenced laying . Whether the pleasant company she was confined with , had any thing to do with this matter , you can judge aa well as I . ¦ ; II Mr .

Sow to Secure a line . Display of Rosea [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 July 1858

Sow to Secure a line . Display of Rosea To obtain a fine and continuous bloom of roses , is a matter worth striving for . They are . always acceptable—in winter , summer , spring , and autumn . After the proper varieties , highly enriched soil is the main-secret to success .. Without this , the best kind of Perpetuals are little better than June roses . Some may bring forth an occasional flower in the fall , but nothing like a full bloom , and the roses themselves small and puny . In new plantations , trench up the ground two spades deep , and work in at least six inches of thoroughly rotted manure . If it makes the bed too hi gh , cart away some of the poorest of the soil ; . While spading , incorporate as much as possible the manure with the soil . After the ground is tlius prepared , leave it till after a rain , if convenient , to settle somewhat ; then plant your rosea . In doing so , see that it is done properly—that is , the soil well pulverized , and placed completely about t...
