MAXWKM.'S BRIDOR, S. C., May 15,
1800.-EDITORS Coonina: I saw in tho
KROWRRCOURIRR that an Oconoo farmer
had learned that by planting onions and
potatoos together tho strongth of tho
onions would get in tho oyes of tho pota
toos, making tears come in thom, and
by keeping tho ground wot, tho potatoos
grow largor. That is nothing. Thoro is
a man down hore that can boat that. I
was talking with him tho other day
about the wild onions in his lowlands.
Ho said his cows got out ono day and ate
a good many of thom, and when they
carno homo in tho ovoning ono of tho
cows walked up behind ono of his mulos
and blowed her breath. Tho strength of
tho onions was so strong it knocked tho
bits out of bis mule's mouth. How is
that for Ililli ? That man's namo is not
short. You must rack out another
