——;— . The Osage Orange fledge . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

——;— . The Osage Orange fledge . Editor of the Fanner : —Farmers who cultivate the Osage Orange Hedge , want one to be a protection to their fields as soon as possible . Eivc years is a great while in Illinois ., A good hedge can he made in four years with proper treatment . It is t not strange that many errors were made at first in the cultivation of the hedge . Our people had made up their minds that they must grow the Osage Orange as they would grow : th \ i thorn ; and others thought that they . had only to j ) Iant the hedge to secure a fence . My plan would be to prepare well the ground for the hedge row ; plow it up deep and make the soil fine . Then take good strong plants and set them in one row three inches apart . Leave some strong plants in the nursery to fill up the vacancies in the spring of the second year . Do this and let hedge grow two years . In the spring of the third year cut it down even with the ground . Some four branches will sprout up from each root ; let t...

Trial of Mowers nnd Reapers . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Trial of Mowers nnd Reapers . Editor of the Farmer : —I was glad to see an article in a late number of the FARMER suggestingthatamore thorough trial be made at the next State Fair than usual , of the plows placed on exhibition ; and I was still more gratified to see the response to that article in the July number , from Mr . U . Mills ^ superintendent of the plowing match , in which he announces that tlie plowing match will he commenced on Thursday of the fair week , and that a most thorough trial of the plows will be made . I now desire to make a suggustion , that , if possible , a trial of mowers and reapers be also had during fair wcok . If we cannot have grain to cut , can they not be tried in grass , millet and buckwheat ? The awards given to these instruments without trial , arc unsatisfactory and inconclusive . In fact , an award given , without trial , is useless , valueless , nonsense . A machine may have a beautiful finish , and may not work . A machine may be rough in app...

The Trial of flows . Editor of the Farmer : —I am glad your correspondent Plowboy took up the pen for a thorough trial of plows at Centralia . 1 have been to several fairs both in this State and out of it , and I do say that I have never witnessed out of this State sucli exhibitions of plows as I have seen at the Illinois State Fairs . Mechanical science was never better displayed than in the manufacture of those plows ,- s-and many of them were finished with a neatness that would rival the most choice exhibitions of cabinetwork . But the practical application of their powers was never sufficiently tested—in my ^ Jjimon . We shall now have it . This of rcSelfLwin be a great exhibition .

Turnips . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Turnips . Editor Farmer : —I have obtained good crops of turnips by the following process : After the crop of wheat was taken from the land , I have plowed a patch of ground tun inches deep , taken care to bury the straw and weeds well—then harrow the ground very fine—sow a quarter of a pound of seed to the acre—hush the seed in lightly and then pass over the ground with the roller . If the fly takes the plants as soon as they appear above ground , I harrow the ground , J sow again , brush in and roll as before . I have done this way three times before I could get a stand of plants . I always endeavor to get in the seed before a raiu—sometimes sueceed and sometimes fail . S .

THE GREAT REAPER AND STACKER , OF MURRAY , VAN DOKEN & GLOVER , Proprietors , Ottawa , Illinois . Above we present to our readers a cut of this new machine , which attracted so much attention among the farmers at our State Fair at Peoria last fall . It was in operation on the 3 d and 5 th of July in this county . One of these machines has been placed at the disposal of the Society , and will bo exhibited at the State Fair next fall , at Ceutralia , to be awarded to the best 30 acres of spring wheat raised in the Stale . ( Sec Premium List of the Society . - ) The cutting arrangement of this machine is similar to all the leading machines . The grain falls on the platform which is composed of a scries of vibrating rods , having inclined rake teeth . These teeth slip under the grain as they go from the driving wheel but catch and draw it as they return and thus they draw the u-raiu in a coustant stream to ward the driving wheel . When it arrives near there , the same rods a...

¦¦•—• Aneient Fanning . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

¦¦•—• Aneient Fanning . This-is a-subject of some interest . , . Farming , commenced soon after man appeared upon the earth ; but we have few details of the processes by which he made his bread : and what we have are contained in the oldest book of which we have any knowledge . These were gathered and made a portion of several Essays on Agriculture , written and published many years ago by one of the fathers of New England , Rev . Mr . Elliott . His essays have been reproduced by the Homestead , of Hartford , Conn . • It will he recollected that in the early settlement of the New Haven Colony , when the people had not time to frame a code of laws for the government of the colony , on account of the two-fold necessity of raising of crops for food and fighting the Indians , —they resolved to be governed by the laws found in the Bible until they , had time to make better;—so Rev . Mr . Elliott gathers what wisdom he can find in the Bible on the subject of agriculture , hut is careful t...

Corn Shncker and Slieller . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Corn Shncker and Slieller . This machine is the invention of Daniel Lombard , No . 6 , State street , Boston . It is a novel machine , docs a vast deal of work , andis operated easily .- —The Agricultural establishments in Boston , and the Agiicultural press of that city speak in high terms of it . It is obvious that a corn busker which would do the work rapidl y and effectuall y would be of vast benefit in the great corn country of the West . We arc not aware that the machine is yet on sale in the West , with the exception of a few that were made to order for Western farmers . The Husker consists of a chuck made concave on one side and furnished with spurs arranged within its concavity . The chuck is fastened on a tubular shaft and carries two knives or cutters ^ for the pur pose of reducing the stalk of an ear of corn , and separating the husk from the ear , after the knives have done their offices ; it is onl y necessary to insert the car of corn into the shaft while it is graspe...

Dr . Jackson's Process of Making Syrup and Sugar from the CMnrxc Sugar lime . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Dr . Jacksons Process of Making Syrup and Sugar from the CMnrxc Sugar lime . Frcm tliv AcricuItuian : piM > rtcri ) i < - U . S . I ntent Office , 1857 . In the first place , it . is necessary to filter the juice of the plant , as it conies from the mill , in order to remove the cellulose and fibrous matters and the starch , all of which are present in it when expressed . A bag filter , or one made of a blanket placed in : \ basket , will answer this purpose . Next , we have to add a sufii / ieiify of milk of lime , ( that is , lime slacked and mixed with water ) to the juice , to render it slightly alkaline , as shown by its changing tumeric paper to a brown color , or reddened litmus paper to a blue . A small excess of lit tie is not injurious . After this addition , the juice should be boiled , say for fifteen minutes . A thick green scum rapidly collets on tlm suil acj , which is to be removed by a skimmer , and then the liquid should again he filtered . It...

. - ¦» The Dwarfing System . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

. - ¦» The Dwarfing System . Editor Farmer : One of the greatest achievements made by the Chinese in gardening is in dwarfing trees and p lants . To such perfection have they reached in this art , that they grow an oak tree , with all . the appearance of great age , covered with minute foliage and acorns , and still it will not reach six inches in night ! The Chinese rose has been so dwarfed by them , that one . of them can be planted in the earth , full of foliage , and occupy the inside of the shell of a common hen s egg . Beautiful miniature buds ^ and roses , to be sure ! But we have been told that in one part of the State—though they have not aimed to approach the Chinese in dwarfing trees and shrubs—they have effectuall y carried out the idea of dwarfing animals , so that the success is complete . The plan is , that when a cow has a likely calf , if it be a heifer , to raise it for the drover ; if a likel y bull , to raise . a steer for the same purpose ; but if the calves ( h...

Politeness at Home . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Politeness at Home . Editor of the Farmer : Lately I found the following scrap in a periodical . The caption drew my attention ; I read it , and as I did , it found my hearty approval . I Bubmit it to your judgment , and if that coincides with mine , please publish it in the FARMER ; with a few ro marks : POLITENESS AT HOME . By endeavoring to acquirethe habit of politeness , it will soon become familiar , and set on you with ease , if not with elegance . Let it never be forgotten that genuine politeness is a great fosterer of family love . It allays accidental irritation by preventing harsh retorts and rude contradictions ; it softens the boisterous , stimulates the indolent , surmres ses selfishness , and , by forming a habit of consideration for others , harmonizes the whole . • Politeness begets politeness ; and brothers may easily be won by it to leave off the rude way they bring hoine from school or college . Sisters ought never , to receive any little attention without thanki...

late Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

late Corn . Editor Farmer : A good deal is said about late planting . . The largest variety requires the whole season to mature ; but there are varieties which will mature in ninety days after they are planted , and these varieties yield well . But do you know , Mr .. Editor ,, that in some parts of Egypt , corn is planted on ground after the wheat is taken off , and good crops are thus obtained ? It is even so , sir , as any Egyptian can tell you . There I should think the practice would rapidly exhaust the richness of the soil . In Central Illinois no immediate danger would be likely to result from this practice ; and I would like to see the trial made with the Yankee flint , the Mexican white flint ,. or the New York white cheat . Southern Illinois has some advantages over us in the early maturity of- wheat and the fine warm fall weather , which continues often till near December . - - S . M . .

Clierry Trees—Suggestions- [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Clierry Trees—Suggestions- It is well known that heart cherries cannot be made to grow herewith ordinary culture . Various means havcbeen . proposed to remedy the evil—such as dwarfing the tree , planting it in poor soil , & c . At a late meeting of the Cleveland Horticultural Society , the subject of growiug heart cherry trees being under consideration , —Dr . Kirtland called the at * tcntiou -of the committee to the superior healthiness of a row of bearing cherry trees on his grouuds , standing on the north side of ah Osage Orange hedge , where the trunks were completely shaded from the sun . Ho recommended those having standard trees in exposed situations , to take strips of thin board , say six inches wide and as long as the hight of the trees , nail two picees together by the edges at a right angle , thus forming a shield to be placed on the south side of the trees , where it can he fastened by a piece of cord .

: •« . Fruit Trees . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

: •« . Fruit Trees . kditor of the . Farmer : —I suggest to . our farmers not be in too great a hurry to purchase fruit trees for fall planting . When the time comes to obtain them they can be had in ten days time after the orders are sent , from the principal nurseries in Illinois .: If obtained from a distance for fall planting , they must be taken up early , too early for the benefit of the tree . The young trees ought not to be dug from the ground until severe frosts have taken - off the leaves . I have no doubt that many Eastern trees die because they are takenup too early . There is no need of being in a hurry to purchase trees ; and especially when you are tolerably sure by doing so , that you ran great risk of losing them . A LOSER .

The Crops . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

The Crops . The wheat crop does not prove as good as an ticipased . In this section , there wereonany fine fields . But this was by no means general ; and much -would not pay for cutting . Oats was near a failure . Barley , little sown , and little saved . The hay crop excellent . Many early planted potato fields an entire failure . The late planted look well . Corn is coming on rapidly—if the season shall continue late , there will he something of a crop . The sugar cane , though late , is growing well . We can still sow turnip seed . The latest sown crops , if they succeed , arc best . Buckwheat can still be sown . Millet , Sugar Cane , and common corn , sown broadcast , will yet produce fine crops of fodder . The sugar corn produces a large yield of fodder sown broadcast . It is time we were getting ready to sow wheat . The land should he put in the test order . Plow well and deep , and cover up the weeds and trash , so that you can drill in the seed . No drill will work well whe...

Cow Silking . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

Cow Silking . The agricultural papers arc discussing the question ; — who . sliould milk the cows ? Now , we can answer it to our own satisfaction , at least , and say , that if woman attends to her duties , she . has no time to devote to milking cows . This domestic duty comes at the very moment when she is wanted in the house , —when she should be preparing breakfast , getting supper , or clearing away -the supper table . . This matter docs not admit of a question . We advise our country girls , when a young man solicits their company through the voyage of life , to propound this question to hiin , and when he answers it , they will he able to determine whether he wants her for a slave or a companion— Do you expect me tomilh the cows ? 9 3 , THE Cow . —The New York Tribmic thus . asks and answers questions about tho cow : - What is a-good cow ?

The Locust Borer [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858

The Locust Borer This insect , which has destroyed many fine locust groves in this county , is now committing its ravages on isolated trees in this city . Some of them already show evidence that they can survive hut a short . time . These trees , which are used for shade , cannot be spared without . much inconvenience ;—- nevertheless , they will have to die . It would be quite prudent for our citizens to seek some other trees for ornament and shade , not liable to be affected or destroyed by insects . The Sitrcr Leaved Maple ( Dasy Carpum ) is a fast growing ,. beautiful tree , forms a- fine head , and so far as we know , is not liable to injuries from insects . There are beautiful , rows of these trees on the avenues leading out of Cleveland , Ohio . Thev can beTiad at our nurseries and at very reasonable prices ; - ^ -for we recollect hearing L .
