Abstract

In tracing the history of any great enterprise,it will rarely
appear that success has been attained all at once, but in most
instances the progress gained has been slow and gradual;and
it has generally been found to be a work of time to wear
down prejudices, alter the course of habitual thought and
practice, as well as to overcome that vis inertiae which is opposed
to all innovation and change. The cultivation of the White
or Silesian Beet, with its many attendant advantages in
relation to agriculture, and as a sugar-producing root, has
proved no exception to this ordinary experience. In support
of this, it may be well, before passing on to the particular
object of this paper, to draw attention to what has been done
towards the establishment of the important industry now under
consideration.
