THE PAHMER: MABCH 27, 1917
ttANY TURNIPS HERE
FROM LONG ISLAND
Shiploads of turnips are reaching
' ihia port from Long Island by tho
Park City. Nearly 200 bags of this
regetable were consigned to various
produce merchants of this city on the
incoming trip today, to replace in a
measure the potato which : has been
sent beyond the avorage means of
many in price.
Steamboat men declare that every
trip of the Park City sees increasing
Huantitles of turnips ' being shipped
Into Bridgeport and that the root cel
lars of provident Long Island farmers
are quickly being depleted of tlu veg
etable at prices far, above anything
eyer recollected in the past.
Large quantities of baking clams
are also v'belng received from Long
Island beds.
