Beckert's SeedStore, 101 and 103 Federal St., N.

Succession sowings may be made at intervals of a fortnight until the last of August. The sowings should be made just before a rain if possible, as the success of the crop depends, in a great measure, upon quick germination and the rapid growth of the young plants. Turnips develop best during cool weather; consequently, the main crop is usually started in August to mature in the cool fall months. For this reason, Turnips are a most desirable crop to follow other vegetables which are harvested early in the season. It is not advisable, however, to sow Turnips where cabbage or radish crops have been grown on account of the danger from root maggots. The larger sorts of Turnips and the Rutabagas are splendid keepers and at least a few should be grown in every garden for winter use. An ounce of seed will sow 150 feet of drill; 2 pounds will sow an acre. THE WHITE-FLESHED VARIETIES EXTRA-EARLY WHITE MILAN. Extremely early and of fine quality.

Later than Milan and larger. Suitable for both early and main crop; good keeper. Pkt. 5 cts., oz. 10 cts., Vilb. 30 cts., lb. 85 cts. PURPLE-TOP WHITE GLOBE. The most pop- ular main-crop Turnip.
