B\ H. E.

He bought a large tract of tlnPber land in Kan kin c< Pa., 1 >unt> and j began milling the timber. He then became interested in developing it agriculturally and with our sweet lent crop. Mr. Wilson has kindly written a plain and sensible letter w hich is hereby civet so j impi potato as an excel il; I In an article hich appeared in The bulletin and Greater Mi-M>*ip pi last June, the to set forth the advantages cultu re ritcr end sweet way. in a general une market or for article, as potato either for the l.i shipment North as those to have That written by struck ell rsolf. a responsive chord with both the merchant and the farmer, and with the > tion of that general article, comes a 1 line of more technical inquiry latter class, while knowing how tc raise sweet potatoes, seem to fail in keeping them over winter in a marketable condition. The former class agec that!hey can persuade] their customers to grow the potatoes and that they are willing to handle them. If they only know how to prepare them and the how. when and where of shipping them. "The article referei to h ?s itlmu la ted many persons to address the writçr personally along the lines > abvoo Stated, and to reduce my cor niia thel , j i respondence to a minimum, I have considered it advisable to prepare mis article for the Marth Bulletin which is intended in a general way to answer the inquiries that have reached me on this ject.. identical sub "Let us begin at the beginning: If you want to keep sweet potatoes successfully, select a variety that will keep as well as sell. If you have a variety that will keep and j not sell, and a variety that will sell j but won't keep, you are in the wrong either way. Divorce yourself from your own prejudices and tastes as to any commodity that you wish to sell if you wish to be successful.
