Fate Seems to be Against Diversification in Briios Count). From reports to this date, it seems that the line prospect for a large commercial crop of IrUb potatoes in thU county is now al most destroyed. This comes of the failure of the potatoes that were planted to germinate, on account of the excessive rains. Mr. A. V. Buchanan planted five or si x acres; and reports no stand. Robert Buchanan planted more heavily, and makes the same report of results. A. L. Locke, J. H. White, J. J. Vandiver and others that the Kagle representative has heard from make similar re ports of the result of large plant ings. The loss of seed potatoes and exjK-nsen for labor of planting) has been a considerable item; Mr. A. W. Buchanan estimating his tea at 0.00. The seed seem to have rotted in the ground. Partial stands are reported in nearly all caces, ranging from ten to fifty per cent., but these are equivalent to no stand at all, for the crop cannot profitably be cultivated in such u condition. It seems purely accidental, but disasters of one kind or another seem to have come every time the farmers in this county hive taken an cccat-ional turn toward the plant ing of crops of vegetables for ship ment to the markets BELL FATALLY SHCT.
