Potato lijiistu^. " EXI'EIIIJIUNTKU," in a late numbor of the Gardener's Monthly, states that lor a low years past he has succeeded in raising potatoes in ?a shorter timo by first inducing them to sprout beforoplanting. "A few wooks before planting time;" lio says, "I solcct my seed potatoes^ aud set them in a warm place to sprout., By the time my ground is ready the shoots are about throe inches in longtli. The potatoes are handled carefully, so-as not to break the growoth, and cut up in suit able size as in tlio ordinary way. One strong shoot is loft to oach piece> The sets must bo put into tlio ground carefully, of course, or tlio shoots will be broken off. As growth commences at once, tlio green tops show in a few days. There is easily a saving of two weeks' time at the start. For thopurposo of raisiug a very early supply in the garden this method is probably an excellent one.
