BIG POTATOES.--On Wednesday morning Mr. David Logan, of lot No. 19 in the 20th concession of Verulam, brought into Fenelon Falls for sale some potatoes of such mammoth dimensions that between forty and fifty of them made a bushel. Mr. James Power, who got some of them, brought us one as a specimen, and when placed in the scale it proved to weigh no less than 21 1/2 oz. Some who saw it argued that it was a double potato, because a little one, about the size of an egg, grew out of its side ; but if a small one--which made a convenient handle to lift the other by--had been cut off, the large one would still have weighed at least a pound. Mr. Power said there were several bigger ones in the sack, and that he brought us the one noticed on account of its peculiar conformation. Mr. Logan ought to stand a fair chance to take first prize for "tubers" at the coming fall show.
