It looks to me as if it says: Manufacturer Sugar Plant Root. The word Plant 
 looks as if it has a tail on the end of the ending letter but I think it 
might  be a check mark superimposed on top of the t.

I would be  eternally grateful if anyone can help me decipher the 
occupation for Benjamin  Rogers on line 47 of the Nantucket, Massachusetts, 1880 
census (ED 492, p.  21). I am looking at the image on Ancestry  at:
http://search.ancestry.com/iexec/?htx=View&r=an&dbid=6742&iid=MAT9_547-0024&
fn=Maria+L.&ln=Rogers&st=r&ssrc=&pid=16982441

Of  special interest, check out line 18 of the same page. James Chase is  
identified as a rigger and, at 96, the oldest inhabitant of the town and  
oldest freemason in the state, if not in US. Some census takers can really  
make your day. I rather wish I needed to research the Chase family after  
reading that.

Thanks in advance for any  help.

Best,
Laura
