A Big Potato
In Haworth inn the other day they were discussing the wonderful things produced in their gardens. One of the party, of somewhat diminutive stature, but possessing a fertile imagination, listened for some time to tales of giant cabbages and cauliflowers, freak potatoes, etc. He could restrain himself no longer, and chimed in with this: "A woman one day wanted me to sell her hawf a stoan o potaties.
