Extravagance . - [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
Extravagance . - It seems clear to us , in surveying the causes of panics , that the industry of the world is employed too largely on useless things . Luxuries , like tobacco and spirits , are wholly unnecessary , and how much industry is thrown away ? how many fields that might otherwise be used for the sustenance . or clothing of man ? Then , again , how many expensive fabrics arc manufactured * that the world could do without ? They furnish an industry , in place of abetter , to the workshops of Europe , to those who make them , hut they impovcrish the consumer . * We are not arguing the disuse . ofall luxuriesjbut-protest that there is too much time-lost oil them , that they do their part . to cause panics , are the source of much poverty , afford temptation to all , and sap the heart of society . ** Goliand silver ornaments , nrecioussTXjncs , are useless beyond their power of being transformed irito nrediums of exchange , or used in the arts . -As so our abandoning taste , we ...
Why is it ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
Why is it ? Editor of the Earmer : After an . observation not now short , I have noticed that English women—I mean women of the middle classes of life , born and brought up in England—in p hysical constitution and in energy of character , are , as a class , far superior to the women of America . It appears to me that this fact is so obvious , that it will hardl y be disputed . Why is this so ? This is tin important question . Is our climate more enervating than that of England , or is the physical education of females there of such a character as to give them constitutions so superior to those of females of the same classes in our country ? Mr . Editor , it has never been my fortune to place my feet upon a foreign shore . Some of your readers have undoubtedl y done this ; and , indeed , some of them were born and lived to mature age in England , and can answer the inquiries embraced in this communication . AVill . some one do so ? Just at this time I feed a great interest in this su...
¦ »* "He was an Indulgent Parent . " [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
¦ »* He was an Indulgent Parent . Editor of the Farmer : —I have often read this sentiment in the notices of deceased persons . He was an indulgent parent ! What does this mean ? Is it intended to convey the idea that children should be indulged in all their whims and caprices and tastes , and , I may say , vices ? because the Bible says , and wo know that the remark is true even without the authority of the Bible , that man is prone to evil . It is his nature . Let him grow up indulged in all he desires by an indulgent parent—the parent fails in fulfilling the duties of the high position that God has placed him in , and the child , be it son or daughter , imbibes habits , sentiments and practices , which area curse to him or her all their days . God intends that children shall bo brought up in the way they should go;—they should be made to understand that they are not to be indulged in anything wrong , and that tho parent , and not them , is to judge when things are wrong . The vic...
Fryc ' s Gang-Plow . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
Fryc s Gang-Plow . A public trial of this plow took place near Tacusa Station , Christian county , on the * 2 ?&gt; d ult . After the exhibition a meeting was held of persons present , to express their views of the operations of the plow . Messrs . II . Ilinehley , F . C . Edwards and IV 11 Hawlcy , were appointed a committee to draft resolutions . They reported the following , which were adopted and signed by all the persons present , besides the officers of the meeting : Pexoh-rd , That we , the undersigned , have witnessed with great pleasure and satisfaction , this day , the operations of Jesse Fryc s newly invented Gang-Plow , near Tacusa Station ,. Christian county , and that we feel fully confident that it is a , excellent agricultural invention , economizing labor and time more than one half . Ju . tolrrdj That the plows , performing as well in heavy hazel thicket as in smooth prairie , justify the opinion that they arc superior in every respect to any other plow . 2...
Docs the Wheat Crop pay ? [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
Docs the Wheat Crop pay ? Editor of the Farmer : —The wheat harvest has now closed , and the question , and &amp; very important one arises , does the wheat crop pay for raising it ? In the examination of this matter , we must take into view a few facts—the first , that the high prices some three years since , grew out of a circumstance which our farmers should not take into calculation in raising their crops : this circumstance was tho war then progressing in the east of Europe . In raising crops , wo can make no calculations on foreign wars to save us from loss , or to secure us good markets . Nor can we depend upon foreign markets to help us much . We arc now sending ^ flour to Europe ; but it must he recollected that this ilour is sent at low prices . Crops are good in Europe ; and our wheat is not wanted for that market unless at a very low figures . If wheat should materially advance here , there would be no foreign demand , because it could not be shipped without loss...
Preserving Frnils and Vegetables . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 August 1858
Preserving Frnils and Vegetables . The following which will bo useful at this season of the year . 1 . Let everything used for the purpose be clean and dry ; especially bottles . 2 . Never place a preserving pan fiat on the fire , as this will reudor the preserve liable to hum to , as it is called ; that is to say , to adhere closely to the metal , and thon to burn ; it should always rest on a trevet , or on the lower bar of the kitchen range . 3 . After the sugar is added to them , stir the preserves gently at first , and more quickly towards tho ond , without quitting them until they are done ; this precaution will prevent them from being spoiled . ¦ : ¦ 4 . All preserves should be perfectly clear from the scum as it rises . 5 . Fruit which is to be preserved in syrup , must first be blanched or boiled gently , until it is sufficiently softened to absorb the sugar ; and a thin syrup must be poured ori it at first , or it will shrivel instead of remaining plump and becoming clear ....
