Our old friend, Mr. Andrew Lackey, a man of great enter-prise in collecting and testing everything new in every de-partment of agriculture, who first called our attention, yearsago, to the great merits of such valuable products as the BlackMexican Corn and Wards Nectar Melon, wrote us about theEarly Fortune Potato. He said that he had been testing it be-side the Early Columbus, Early Polaris, Lees Early Favorite,Early Vaughan, Early North Pole, and Early Six Weeks, andfound the Early Fortune was earlier and more productive thanany of them. He added: It has done splendidly with me tortwo seasons, and if my health would allow me to supervisetheir cultivation (he is now 82 years old). I would plant mywhole stock. I find it to be a strong grower. In form andcolon it resembles the Early Rose, but in quality it surpassesit. It is a very handsome potato. The introducer of theEarly Fortune says; it is the earliest potato in the worldand I have tested everything.
