The allied lines - have suffered to
day a terrible bombardment. The

noon, a signal for aill their batteriet

The great deficiency in provision crops
should e tumade up in some measure, by an
unusual crop of turnips. They will be
ttiod useful for witering all farm stock,
including horses. English writers say that
one feed per day of turnips is very useful
it keeping tie system of a horse in a proper
siate. We have no experience on thiN point.

alreaily pitt in The comsmon sort, FlIAt
DtIch, Red Top, Norfolk, Globe, Yellow
Dutch. &o., may be sown fronm tite last of
July through Augut and September. but
the best crops are usually made from the
Atigist sowings. The ground timust be re
peiedly plottghed atnd harrowed unt-!t well
pitlverited. A writer remarks th.o tIme
"ground souild be as much more pnAverized
for turnips than for wheat. ii the .wed is
finer." A. deep. rich, mellow, santly loai,
plotigihed deeply but. not inverted, is the best,
for this crop, and cannot be made too rich.
They may be sown in drills two feet apart.
and thinned to from six to fifteen inches in
the drill, Ur sown broadcast. Tite dril Qys
