friends are apt to suapect his motives and under

ircumstances, as ia all othora, is lha euosrious
nessol doing one's duly. Fulton, the inventor of
the steamboat in North Amerira, which, in a few
years, has. produced such an astonishing change in
that vast country, by connecting together lit moat
distant Slates, auatained the. mortification of not
being comprehended by hu countrymen. He waa,
therefore, treated aa an idle projector, whose
acliemcs would be useless to the world and ruinous
tu himself. At a discourse, deliveied si the Me.

turnip seed is to do it either wtth n Ireai tooth

them for ihe want of root. Broadcast it the most

Thia is (lie most productive way to raise turnipa.
If the farmer intends to plant or sow hit turnip
